  • Does Someone Have to be Pro-Life to be a True Christian?

    Life News ^ | 11.26.12 | Kristen Walker Hatten
    I wasn’t a Christian when I became pro-life. I was kind of anti-Christian. I was converted on the basis of science, reason, ethics, and human rights. A year later, I was confirmed in the Catholic Church. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. But I also don’t think one has to be a Christian to be pro-life. I do, however, believe that one has to be pro-life to be a Christian. Why? Well, because, duh. I mean, is it really necessary to go into deep biblical study over this issue? Is it necessary to quote Exodus 21:22-23, or Psalm 139:13-15, or...

    Read and weep!! Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The following is a compilation of bill signings, speeches, appointments and other actions that President Barack Obama has engaged in that have promoted abortion before and during his presidency. While Obama has promised to reduce abortions and some of his supporters believe that will happen, this long list proves his only agenda is promoting more abortions. During the presidential election, Obama selected pro-abortion Sen. Joe Biden as his vice-presidential running mate. http://www.lifenews.com/2010/11/07/obamaabortionrecord/

    Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, has described 2011 as “the most difficult year in [Planned Parenthood’s] history.” Well, welcome to 2012. The Alliance Defense Fund, in conjunction with the Susan B. Anthony List, released its summary report on publicly available federal and state audits that identify waste, abuse, and potential fraud by Planned Parenthood and state family planning programs and reveal systemic misuse of nearly $100 million taxpayer dollars. The audits speak for themselves in detailing Planned Parenthood’s misuse of the money that’s been funneled to state family planning programs and Planned Parenthood affiliates. Ten state...

    Picking out the Christmas tree with the kids, singing Christmas hymns at church, teaching my children about the birth of our Savior… I could go on and on about things that bring my joy during the Christmas season; it truly is a magical time of the year. I also spend of lot of the Christmas season in pain, sadness and heartbreak as I watch what is happening to our world. Christmas is a time for false love, fake peace and people to fool themselves into thinking they love God. Most of what we see is blasphemy and does not please...

    Life Dynamics ^ | Jul;y 14, 2009 | Mark Crutcher
    Earlier this year, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for the government's economic stimulus package to include a healthy increase in spending for what she called “family planning.” (If you didn't already know, “family planning” is generally code for abortion.) Pelosi said that this would save state and federal governments the cost of having to pay for the health care and education of poor children. Of course, it's pretty hard to argue with that sort of logic. After all, dead children are less expensive to care for than live children. In any event, Pelosi's remarks came on the heels of Barak...

    WASHINGTON —Speaking on behalf of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia, chairman of the bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, expressed profound regret upon learning of the shooting death of abortion doctor George Tiller. "Our bishops' conference and all its members have repeatedly and publicly denounced all forms of violence in our society, including abortion as well as the misguided resort to violence by anyone opposed to abortion," Cardinal Rigali said. "Such killing is the opposite of everything we stand for, and everything we want our culture to stand for: respect for the life of each...

"Two years ago, I visited George Tiller's clinic in hope of telling him that babies desire mercy," said Dr. King. "I wanted to share with him the harm I experienced from abortion. My prayer was that one day he would join me in repentance. I am deeply sorry that his life was taken before that could happen." "It's especially horrifying that Dr. Tiller was shot in church," added Dr. King....

    The president inserts himself into a religious debate Passionate debates over doctrine, identity, and the boundaries of “communion” have been a staple of the American religious landscape for centuries: Trinitarians vs. Unitarians in 19th-century New England; Modernists vs. Fundamentalists in early-20th-century Presbyterianism; Missouri Synod Lutherans vs. Wisconsin Synod Lutherans vs. Other Sorts of Lutherans down to today. Yet never in our history has a president of the United States, in the exercise of his public office, intervened in such disputes in order to secure a political advantage. Until yesterday, at the University of Notre Dame. The principal themes of President...

    About six months ago, veteran pro-life activist Steve Sanborn approached me about documenting the annual March For Life in Washington, D.C. Sanborn’s original goal was to put a couple of cameras on rooftops and count the marchers. It had long irked him how consciously and corruptly the major media under-reported the people gathered for this January event. The more we got to talking, the more we realized the value of creating a serious documentary about the March, the first ever high-end, high-def production. Convinced of the documentary’s potential, I brought in my long time producing partner, Michael Wunsch of Outpost...

    For reasons I do not understand, of all the columns I have written, “Ebenezer Obama and Trickle Down Charity (The Rather Uncharitable Obamas)” has generated more interest than anything other. I did not understand why, until a friend reminded me of a central truth about the public—which I had forgotten: You may lie, cheat, or steal, and the public may forgive you in time. But when you talk one way and live another, watch out. The public hates hypocrisy above all else. So, just when I thought there was no politician stingier than Barack Obama—who has given as little as...

    Clarke D. Forsythe AUL Senior Counsel Introduction The political claim—that women were or will be prosecuted or jailed under abortion laws—has been made so frequently by Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and NOW over the past 40 years that it has become an urban legend. It shows the astonishing power of contemporary media to make a complete falsehood into a truism. For 30 years, abortion advocates have claimed—without any evidence and contrary to the well-documented practice of ALL 50 states—that women were jailed before Roe and would be jailed if Roe falls (or if state abortion prohibitions are reinstated). This claim rests...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Just one day after news of the proposal became public, Planned Parenthood is attacking a Bush administration plan to help pro-life doctors. The tentative rule would ensure pro-life physicians, nurses and other medical personnel don't face hiring discrimination if they refuse to be involved in abortions. Although Planned Parenthood touts abortion as a voluntary choice, Cecile Richards, the president of the abortion business, attacked the proposal to help doctors avoid abortion coercion. Richards called the idea to stop hiring discrimination a way for President Bush to "sell-out women's health in the most unbelievable way" and claimed...

    It’s the summer of talking about the summer of ‘68. And back during that infamous summer, there was sex — an encyclical on sex, that is: Humanae Vitae, from Pope Paul VI, issued on July 25. Its message is being heard and misheard as much now as then. It would be for the benefit of all — Catholics and non-Catholics alike — to give it a 40th-anniversary look. Even Jessica Valenti, author of the new book He’s a Stud, She’s a Slut, and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know, might find it more helpful than she’ll care to...

Many factors contributed to these election results. The American people obviously are concerned about the conduct of the...

    Religiously run hospitals are now in the crosshairs of the abortion provider. A new call to action from Planned Parenthood is hoping to frighten women with the rising number of hospitals run by faith-based organizations, many of which refuse to offer abortion services. According to the abortion provider, women are in danger of losing their “right” to reproductive services if they don’t step up and oppose mergers between community hospitals and faith-based healthcare providers. Those providers are usually Catholic, 7th Day Adventist and Baptist. “Planned Parenthood isn’t content with getting all the abortions they want in secular hospitals, now they...

    Since Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement from the Supreme Court in July, members of the Democratic left have been itching to pummel a Republican nominee on abortion. Chief Justice John Roberts didn't fit the bill, since he had never made any controversial statements about Roe v. Wade -- or anything else for that matter. Judge Samuel Alito is a different matter, however. In a 1985 document released on Nov. 15, Alito told the Reagan administration that he would be proud to argue "the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion." This revelation produced gasps of outrage among Senate...

    The White House was hopeful that the Senate confirmation hearings and vote on Judge Samuel A.

The Chairman and Ranking Minority Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Arlen Specter, R-Pa., and Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., declined to proceed that quickly. Hearings presently are scheduled to begin on January 9, 2006, and a vote should occur on or soon after January 20, 2006.

    Jefferson City, MO (LifeNews.com) -- A second Missouri judge has put a hold on a new Missouri law that would reduce abortions by helping teenagers and women who suffer from botched abortions. Jackson County Circuit Judge Charles Atwell issued a temporary restraining order after another judge had done the same thing. Judge Atwell claimed the law was a violation of free speech because it prohibits abortion facility staff or other adults apart from a minor teen's parents from taking her to another stat for a secret abortion. He also said the law threatens irreparable harm to Planned Parenthood and other...

    It's no secret. I don't like Bill Clinton. So, I had hoped someone else would write this column. As was so often the case during his scandalous presidency, no one else has. There was much outrage over Sen. Dick Durbin's disgusting, false indictment of U.S. military personnel at Guantanamo Bay, I was almost certain others might notice Clinton's remarks to the London Financial Times on the same subject. In the wake of Durbin's comparison of the treatment of terrorists at Gitmo to the torture chambers of the Nazis, Stalinists and Khmer Rhouge, Clinton was asked to weigh in. Did he...

    What has become of all the strong women? At the N.O.W. headquarters, all the girls were wailing in disbelief. At the Feminist Majority, everyone's mascara had to be redone. And First-Lady-in-waiting Teresa was left speechless. The 2004 presidential election was not just a setback for the Democratic Party. Candidate Kerry repeatedly promised to appoint pro-abortion judges to the Supreme Court and to eliminate the so-called gender "wage gap." So Kerry's defeat also represented a repudiation of the rad-fem agenda. Of course, the feminist Mafia tried to put a good face on the debacle. Ann Lewis, editor of the Democratic party's...

    Abortion Advocate to Head Democratic Program Against Bush Judges Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Just days after a coalition of groups announced an ad campaign designed to blast President Bush for selecting pro-life judges to federal courts, a leading abortion advocate will head up a new campaign for the Democratic Party to attack the president. Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Terry McAuliffe unveiled a new campaign last week that will be headed up by former NARAL president Kate Michelman. The DNC's Campaign to Save the Court will “highlight the critically important issue of how the 2004 Presidential election will affect the...

  • Abortion Industry Wants Sexual Abuse Laws Declared Unconstitutional

    There is a law that has been on the books for at least 11 years in Kansas which prohibits sex with a child under 16, making a pregnancy in a girl under 16 evidence of child abuse. Title 42, Sec. 13031, of the US Criminal Code pertaining to Public Health and Welfare requires that doctors and other health professionals report "physical or sexual abuse or neglect of a child" to the proper government authorities. In June of this year Kansas Attorney General Phil Kline issued a logical legal opinion that doctors who perform abortions on girls under 16 must report...

    Did I Violate the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban? A doctor ponders a new era of prosecution As the misleadingly titled "Partial-Birth Abortion Ban" makes its way to the president's desk, anti-abortion groups are celebrating their public relations victory. But beneath the hoopla, the bill's medical consequences remain murky. Exactly which procedures will be banned, and which doctors prosecuted? Will the anti-abortion lobby be happier with the alternative methods to which doctors will resort? If not, which methods and doctors will be targeted next? Will this ban have a chilling effect on related procedures? If so, will it prevent abortions-or births? I...

    Suffer the children 16jun03 http://heraldsun.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5478,6600315%255E25717,00.html JOHN Pilger was far from the only journalist to believe -- incredibly -- it was our fault that Iraqi children were dying in their hundreds of thousands. Oh, no. Time magazine in 1998 even reported on the parade of children's corpses that Saddam Hussein staged through Baghdad's streets to persuade Western journalists of our guilt, and warned of the "anger and despair of Iraq's people". But I mention Pilger because you may have seen his documentary, Paying the Price: Killing the Children of Iraq, which screened on SBS in 2000 and is perhaps the best...

    (Language in this article may be offensive to some readers) Washington (CNSNews.com) - The author of a book denying the existence of a liberal media in America declared that the right wing media "machine" is now so powerful that it acts as "a steamroller" of liberal ideals. Eric Alterman - author of What Liberal Media? - appeared at a workshop called "Reversing the Right's Hold on the Media" on the final day of the three-day "Take Back America" conference sponsored by the Campaign for America's Future, which states as its goal pushing the Democratic party to the left. Alterman said...
  • Editorial: Right turns only (Social moderates have lost all say in the Republican Party)

    On its own, Christie Whitman's departure from the national political stage is a minor event. Her tenure at the Environmental Protection Agency will soon be forgotten, and her once limitless future is now decidedly in the past. What is momentous is how quickly Whitman went from rising star to Washington burnout. The story of how it happened is bad news for socially progressive Republicans everywhere. Talk about potential: Whitman burst onto the political radar in 1990 when, in challenging Sen. Bill Bradley from New Jersey, she nearly pulled off an upset. She was elected governor three years later and quickly...
