    After the macabre findings from notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia charnel house were made public in 2011, lawmakers in Pennsylvania enacted legislation that ensures, among other things, that state inspectors will regularly visit abortion facilities in the state.Recently the results of inspections [PDF] conducted recently at the Philadelphia Women’s Center (PWC) abortion facility were released — and, like so many other abortion clinic inspections, they really throw a spanner in the works of the “pro-choice” movement’s claims that heightened oversight of abortion clinics is “onerous” and “unnecessary.”Photocopies of Doctor’s Signature on Consent Forms On October 9, 2013, state officials investigated...

    Rowena met Roger when she was a teen and knew he was the man for her and they ultimately married when they were 21 years old. Both agreed they never wanted to have children, so when Rowena became pregnant twice, she had abortions both times.Rowena says she had the abortions in part because she didn’t want to share her husband’s affections with her children.She also believes remaining childless is why their marriage has lasted and condemns women who have had children, saying they often have children simply to make their marriage last and not because they truly want children.Here’s the...

    Pondering what the legendary civil rights figure might communicate in 140 characters or fewer on the social networking site Twitter is among the highlights in his niece Alveda King’s new book, King Rules.Alveda King offers sample tweets taken from the speeches and writings of the heroic champion of non-violence and of harmony between the races.“We are made to live together,” is among the quotes she envisions her uncle sending out into cyberspace. In Alveda’s view, the persons meant to live together would include unborn Americans.In King Rules, Alveda King provides persuasive arguments for her contention that the ‘60s icon would...

    Pro-lifers are regularly accused of waging a war on women when we want to protect women’s health and the lives of the children they carry within. Regulations of abortion clinics to protect women and their children are seen as an attack on abortion access by abortion advocates – not because they want women to have access to what they call safe abortion, but because they know tighter regulations will reduce the number of abortion clinics, and thus the number of abortions will be reduced.We who defend the right to life understood a long time ago that the interest of the...

    Today, Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization, has released their second report exposing how the abortion industry covers for child sexual predators.This new report, entitled, “The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse”, shows clearly that the failure of abortion clinics to comply with mandatory reporting laws is having profound, real-world consequences for the victims of child sexual abuse.Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics Inc. explains: “In almost every case of adult men having sex with minor girls, the perpetrators are aware that the relationship is illegal and could land them in prison.

    Every morning, the faithfulness of the sun touches our eyelids. Unfortunately, the faithfulness of the alarm clock also reaches our ears. We slowly rise from the pillow, sneak out from under the sheets, and begin the tasks for that day. For most people, there is a passion that gives us the encouragement to live each day. It might be a job, a child, a spouse, a religion. My passion is being pro-life. It drives and it motivates me. I find joy in being the voice for the unborn every day, even if it’s just in the smallest ways. There was...

    Recent reports announcing the era of remote-control contraception herald the very real but slightly horrifying prospects for the future for those who believe that man can literally transform himself into a machine. This phenomenon is known as the cult of transhumanism. One news report calls the remote dispensation of contraception “creepy.” Another explains how this may come to fruition: “A challenge from Bill Gates two years ago has put science on the cusp of a revolutionary, remote-controlled method of birth control.” Technology Review says the wireless implant, if approved for safety and efficacy, could make it possible for a woman to turn her birth control on and...

    We are quickly becoming a pro-suicide culture–indeed to the point now that organizations like the Hemlock Society Compassion and Choices, bioethicists, and the mainstream media promote suicide by self-starvation as the new big thing in making oneself dead. Philip Nitschke is one of the international rock stars of euthanasia advocacy. He is also its most candid. He believes that everyone owns their own body absolutely and thus have a right to suicide whenever they want and for whatever reason. Indeed, he told NRO’s Kathryn Lopez that suicide pills should even be made available to “troubled teens.” I clashed with Nitschke in Australia when I traveled the country on...

    Though Planned Parenthood has long claimed abortion is a tiny part of its mission, the president and CEO of one of its affiliates says the organization “absolutely” celebrates when its offices perform more abortions. Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, wrote a blog post that verified a wide-spread story that the affiliate had given a Colorado office an award for increasing the number of abortions it performed. A former abortion industry worker took a picture of a special commendation Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains bestowed upon the Aurora, Colorado, office for “exceeding abortion visits...

    The ACLU has asked a federal appeals court to throw out an Arizona law banning sex-selective and race-based abortions, claiming the law is itself racist. Lawyers asked the San Francisco-based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, one of the most overturned appeals courts in the nation, to reconsider the lawsuit filed on behalf of the NAACP and the National Asian-Pacific American Women's Forum. Gov. Jan Brewer signed the “Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2011,” making Arizona the first state to ban abortion based on racist or sexist discrimination. Abortionists violating its terms face a maximum 3.5...

    A study from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released Tuesday found that there are far fewer who people who identify as homosexual and bisexual in America than many think. The study also found that self-identified homosexuals lead less healthy lives. According to the study, which was based upon data from the 2013 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 2.3 percent of Americans identify as gay, lesbian, or bisexual. The study also found that "health behaviors," "health conditions," and "health care access and utilization" were statistically worse among what the CDC calls "sexual minorities.” The NHIS survey interviewed 34,557 adults aged...

    An Arizona pro-life group wants a Planned Parenthood abortion business investigated that allowed teen girls to be victimized by statutory rape because it failed to properly report a rapist.Planned Parenthood abortion clinics have come under fire countless times over the years for not reporting cases of statutory rape to authorities as required by state law. Earlier this year, in Arizona, officials says the abortion giant failed again to provide the proper report to authorities about a victim of a young man who is a serial rapist.Not only did Planned Parenthood intentionally fail to report the rape but, in so doing,...

    In China there are a reported 13 million abortions every year. The government's one-child policy pushes parents into killing their children or paying backbreaking fines, and speaking out against China's abortion policies brings unwanted attention from officials and possible fines or imprisonment. However, some pro-life activists, including clergy, have decided the risk is worth it. "More and more Chinese churches are awakening about the Bible's teaching on the murderous nature of abortion, even forced abortion, and engaging the movement to protect life." According to a report from WORLD Magazine, the pro-life movement in China is small but growing. Priests and...

    Obamacare’s emphasis on cost-benefit has apparently granted permission for the medical technocrats to conjure all kinds of healthcare rationing schemes.And the Medical Establishment is apparently playing along. From, “The Cancer Death-Panel App,” by Robert Goldberg in the NY Post: The latest innovation in cancer care isn’t a medical breakthrough but an app to ration new drugs. It’ll measure care in terms of what it costs health plans, instead of what it means for patients’ lives.That it’s being developed under the auspices of the American Society for Clinical Oncology, or ASCO, the world’s leading oncology association, is a grim warning about...

    In New York City, there are a number of abortion clinics competing to catch the eyes of abortion minded women. One of these clinics is Early Options. Their tagline reads “Early Abortion & Miscarriage: a Revolutionary Medical Practice.”When a woman goes to a clinic to end her pregnancy and kill her unborn baby, it’s not really called a “miscarriage,” but since the word “abortion” still carries stigma, redefining the word “miscarriage” for their patients is apparently something this abortion clinic is happy to do.This clinic has apparently pioneered an abortion method called the “SofTouch.” According to the site: SofTouch® is...

    It is perhaps in the nature of celebrities to champion causes they perceive to be popular. Celebrity bishops are no exception and Desmond Tutu’s support for Lord Falconer’s Assisted Dying Bill is not surprising but deeply disappointing.Dignity in Dying, the former Voluntary Euthanasia Society, has assembled over 50 actors, sportsmen, entertainers, authors and other celebrities to add weight to their campaign – similar people to those advertisers draft in to provide endorsement for consumer products.The implication is that we should follow these celebrities and embrace their preferences.And there is no doubt that so-called ‘assisted dying’ resonates strongly with the spirit...

    Every poll reveals that Americans are gradually shifting away from an understanding of marriage as being a lifelong union of one man and one woman, to one in which marriage is defined only by the whims of its participants. If we are going to safeguard the future of marriage – as defined by God and supported by Natural Law – and secure the healthiest environment for children to grow up, we cannot rely on our political leaders or the secular media to speak the truth about marriage and its importance. On June 19, thousands of Americans from various religions, races...

    The world’s fourth richest person, Warren Buffett, ploughed $1.23 billion into abortion groups over eleven years, a media watchdog has found. The Media Research Center (MRC), which analysed tax returns for Buffett’s foundation, labeled him the ‘king of abortion’. The MRC says the money given ‘is enough to pay for the abortions of more than 2.7 million babies in the womb’ – which, it points out, equates to the entire city of Chicago. MRC’s report lays out the money Buffett’s foundation gave between 2001 and 2012, saying it amounted to $1,230,585,161. The money was given to groups which either ‘provided abortions themselves...

    A judge in Australia has been criticised after saying incest may no longer be a taboo and that the community may now accept consensual sex between adult siblings. Judge Garry Neilson, from the district court in the state of New South Wales, likened incest to homosexuality, which was once regarded as criminal and "unnatural" but is now widely accepted. He said incest was now only a crime because it may lead to abnormalities in offspring but this rationale was increasingly irrelevant because of the availability of contraception and abortion.

Local Wisconsin Catholics are organizing protests outside a La Crosse Catholic-affiliated hospital that they say is employing up to three abortionists on staff. While the protesters acknowledge that the abortionists don’t perform abortions at the Catholic hospital itself, they say it is unacceptable for the hospital to be affiliated with abortionists in any way, and are calling for the hospital to sever ties with the doctors. Leif and Karen Arvidson, who are spearheading the protests, say that they were galvanized into action after Dr. Carl Rose,...

    Taking the pill may damage a woman’s fertility by quickening her biological “clock”, a new study has found. Researchers in Denmark tested 833 women to see what effect the contraceptive pill had on their reproductive systems. They found that the contraceptive can temporarily drain a woman’s ovarian reserve, a measure of the ovary’s capacity to produce eggs capable of fertilization.  The ovarian reserve is determined by the combination of two measurements which make up what is commonly referred to as the Biological Body Clock Test.  Both the anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) levels in the blood and the antral follicles in the...

    As promised, Senate Democrats filed legislation today to “overturn” the Supreme Court’s decision protecting Hobby Lobby and other companies from being forced to comply with the HHS mandate that compels them to pay for abortion-causing drugs for their employees.The Supreme Court ruled that the Christian-run Hobby Lobby doesn’t have to obey the HHS mandate that is a part of Obamacare. The high court issued a favorable ruling in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a landmark case addressing the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of business owners to operate their family companies without violating their deeply held religious convictions.The court ruled that...

    The language of the e-mails is hyperbolic and hate-filled. They come from population control groups that are indignant about the House of Representatives Bill which would re-institute the Mexico City Policy. They call it a “Mean-spirited, anti-women agenda.” And they say it’s “Playing ping-pong politics with women’s lives,” “Out of touch,” and “Inconsistent with U.S. policy.” And that’s just in the headlines! So just what is this “mean-spirited” Mexico City Policy? Put simply, it prohibits US taxpayer dollars from going to organizations which “promote or perform abortions” as a part of “population planning activities or other population assistance.” What could be wrong with...

    As the death toll at the nation's VA hospitals continues to mount, the Obama administration has shown that it is not completely incapable of changing the insides of those facilities. According to an e-mail from a dentist in the scandal-plagued department, the hospitals could not see veteran patients on time or effectively care for them, but they managed to promote gay, bisexual, and transgender political issues last month. The Catholic group TFP Student Action received this e-mail: I am a dentist at the VA [U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs] in (name withheld). Yesterday as I was leaving work, I noticed...

(Courtesy of Stand True Ministries On January 24, 2013, my daughter Zoe addressed the crowd at the March for Life Youth Rally in DC. Bryan Kemper of Stand True Pro-Life Outreach had been mentoring her for several months and she was already set on the path of a pro-life activist.

    It is absolutely critical that the issue dividing the pro-lifers and abortion advocates be clarified and not muddled by irrelevancies. As author Scott Klusendorf points out in The Case for Life: “If you think a particular argument for elective abortion begs the question regarding the status of the unborn, here’s how to clarify things: Ask if this particular justification for abortion also works as a justification for killing toddlers. If not, the argument assumes that the unborn are not fully human.” (The Case for Life, p. 25, para. 1). Since hardly anybody appeals to bodily rights, economic conveniences, or rights...

    A Black pro-life organization has had three Facebook images flagged as “graphic violence!”One of those images depicts a father loving his unborn child: LifeNews blogger Ryan Bomberger is an Emmy® Award-winning Creative Professional who founded The Radiance Foundation (TRF), a life-affirming 501(c)(3), along with his wife, Bethany. Working in conjunction with noted national civil rights leaders like Dr. Alveda King (niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.), Ryan is involved in national efforts to expose and defund Planned Parenthood and document how abortion is destroying the Black community. Sometimes Ryan’s thoroughly researched and pointed remarks rile establishment folk, like the...

And a new law requiring Wisconsin abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local...

    A Florida health center has allegedly refused an applicant employment based on her pro-life view and unwillingness to prescribe contraception that could cause the death of a human embryo. In a federal lawsuit filed by Alliance Defending Freedom, attorneys note that the human resources director of Tampa Family Health Centers questioned applicant Sara Hellwege about her involvement with the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, a pro-life organization. When Hellwege, who submitted an application for a nurse-midwife position, confirmed her membership with AAPLOG, the director notified her in an e-mail that she was rejected due to her involvement with...

    Universities are thought to be places where a free range of ideas are encouraged, where all sides of an issue can be examined; however, the top-ranked University of Chicago has taken only one side of the abortion issue and magnified it in an abortion guide. The university isn’t really hiding this fact since the link can be found at “abguide.” not even masking what it’s there for, is a multi-page resources on how to obtain and finance abortion. The guide, put out by the University of Chicago Section of Family Planning and Center for Interdisciplinary Inquiry and Innovation in Sexual...

    Nearly thirty-seven years ago, Melissa Ohden survived a saline infusion abortion.

She began by explaining the abortion procedure that was intended to take her life.During a saline infusion abortion, the abortionist inserts a needle through the mother’s abdomen and withdraws amniotic fluid. Then the fluid is replaced with a salt solution, which typically causes...
