It is the latest in a series of controversial moves that some speculate could result in Bolden's ouster.

    This is not a scheduled EWTN TV. There may not even be plans for it. But maybe their should be!!! Catholics/Christians stopping F.O.C.A: Gianna Jessen is an abortion survivor. She fought vigorously in the last election on the abortion issue. "Blessed" Mother Teresa fought abortion when she was on earth, most powerfully with her 1994 National Prayer Breakfast speech. Her successor Sister Nirmala must equally share in that zeal to stop abortion. Dr. Alveda King is the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She has had two abortions. Archbishop Raymond "Leo" Burke now holds two positions in the Vatican....

    In the increasing flurry of this election season's negative political ads, the Barack Obama campaign produced a TV commercial that not only attacks Republican rival John McCain, but also takes aim at an unusual target: a 31-year-old woman who was born alive after her mother's botched abortion. Obama's commercial predictably takes shots at the GOP campaign, calling McCain's ads "the sleaziest ever, truly vile." But when the screen shows clips of abortion survivor Gianna Jessen and the ad she made asking Obama to reverse his stance on born alive infant protection legislation, the Obama ad calls Jessen's appeal "a despicable...

    If Barack Obama had his way, Gianna Jessen wouldn’t be here today. In fact, if her biological mother’s late-term abortion had gone as planned, Jessen would have died in utero after being burned inside and out by a saline solution. But today, she is a healthy 31-year-old -- and she wants voters to know the truth about Obama’s stance on the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. “We’re not talking about abortion. We’re talking about living, breathing babies who have survived an abortion and need medical care,” Jessen explained to HUMAN EVENTS. “Obama doesn’t think they should get it.” Jessen appears...

    Barack Obama has decided to respond to Gianna Jessen’s powerful ad on his opposition to a bill that would have protected the lives of infants born from botched abortions. In essence, he accuses John McCain of lying, when the record speaks so clearly that Obama’s campaign had to admit they lied about his position on the Illinios version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. This has produced a hysterical reaction from Team O that pretty much has become a One-Note Charlie when responding to any criticism:

She denied, hotly, that babies are ever born alive after an attempted abortion. Since I have actually met Gianna Jessen, who survived an attempted abortion, I invited viewers to contact me directly if they wanted evidence. My inbox has been bursting....

I’m a survivor, as are many others…but if Barack Obama had his way, I wouldn’t be here. Four times, Barack Obama voted to oppose a law to protect babies left to die after a failed abortion. Senator Obama, please support born alive infant protections. I’m living proof these babies have a right to live.”

    According to Barack Obama, Gianna Jessen shouldn't exist. Miss Jessen is an exquisite example of what antiabortion advocates call a "survivor." Well into her third trimester of pregnancy, Gianna's biological mother was injected with a saline solution intended to induce a chemical abortion at a Los Angeles County abortion center. Eighteen hours later, and precious minutes before the abortionist's arrival, Gianna emerged. Premature and with severe injuries that resulted in cerebral palsy. But alive. Had the abortionist been present at her birth, Gianna would have been killed, perhaps by suffocation. As it was, a startled nurse called an ambulance, and...

His family approved having his organs harvested. As family members were paying their last respects, he moved his foot and hand.

    Thousands march against abortion in S.F. Thousands of abortion protesters marched along San Francisco's waterfront Saturday, hectored by a smaller band of abortion rights supporters, as both sides marked the impending anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that established those rights 35 years ago. Although passions ran high in both camps, the event - what is becoming an annual trek by the anti-abortion movement into what they consider the heart of abortion rights territory - was peaceful. At least 10,000 abortion opponents were bused into the city from all over California, and from outside the state, for a morning rally...

    A woman who has been in a coma-like state for more than six years awoke for three days this week to talk with family members and eat her favorite foods before relapsing. “She was smiling and grinning and told my staff she wanted to go to a club, even doing a little chair dance in her wheelchair,” said one of her doctors, Randall Bjork. The woman, Christa Lilly, 49, suffered a cardiac arrest in November 2000. Since then, her mother, Minnie Smith, has been caring for her at home. Ms. Smith said Ms. Lilly had awakened five times, sometimes for...

    A Boston woman has filed a lawsuit alleging that a doctor at Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts bungled her abortion in April 2004 and that she had no idea she was still pregnant until about six weeks before her daughter was born in December. Jennifer Raper, 45, of Charlestown, wants Planned Parenthood, the doctor who performed the abortion at the Boston clinic, and another physician who allegedly failed to detect her pregnancy in July 2004 to pay damages, including the cost of rearing Raper's 2-year-old daughter. (snip) A Planned Parenthood spokeswoman said the organization does not comment on litigation. Raper...

    Near-Fatal Abortion Reminds Us What's at Stake In what can only be called an abortion horror story, a New Jersey woman is recovering in the hospital from a severely botched procedure that could have cost her life. Twenty-year-old Rasheedah Dinkins spent the last month in a coma after she visited the Metropolitan Medical Associates (MMA) in Englewood for an abortion that made her dangerously ill. En route to the hospital, medics say Rasheedah died, but they were able to resuscitate her in time for doctors to give her blood transfusions and surgically remove her uterus. Despite the MMA's claim that...

    EXTRA checks have been introduced at a hospital after a woman gave birth to a healthy baby - even though she'd had an abortion. Managers at Derby City General Hospital said additional measures have been implemented to prevent a repeat incident. There is a possibility the woman, who has not been named, was carrying twins, but the hospital said its procedure covered multiple births - and would not comment on whether the patient in this case had been expecting more than one child. The local NHS trust carried out 1,301 abortions last year. A hospital spokesman said: "Although this happens...

According to LifeSiteNews.com, the doctors who have studied the Wallis case have published their initial conclusions in the Journal of Clinical Investigation. The report explains that during the car accident Walls’ nerve connections in his brain were severed, putting him in...

Interestingly, he specifically mentioned that one of the resolutions we would be hearing was being carried by the House Majority Leader Alice Madden (D), honoring the 90th anniversary of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. As a strong pro-life legislator I was disgusted...
