They also denied their right to appeal, meaning doctors can go ahead and withdraw Alfie's life support.Tom Evans, 21, met Pope Francis on Wednesday and begged him to support his case 'The unanimous opinion of doctors examining him and the scans of...

    Save Alfie Evans! Tell the hospital to let his parents take him home. Sign here. LONDON, April 20, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The UK Supreme Court will not allow the parents of Alfie Evans to take their sick child to a hospital in Italy. The ruling means that a previous court's decision that Alfie be removed from his ventilator on Monday, April 23 remains in effect. Removing the baby from ventilation will likely cause his death.   Three Supreme Court justices denied an appeal to the baby’s parents today, saying the hospital must be "free to do what has been...

    The Catholic bishops of England and Wales have weighed in on the case of baby Alfie Evans, saying that the courts and hospital are acting “with integrity and for Alfie's good” in deciding that removing life-support is in the baby’s “best interest.”  “We affirm our conviction that all those who are and have been taking the agonising decisions regarding the care of Alfie Evans act with integrity and for Alfie's good as they see it,” the bishops stated.  The statement follows today’s surprise meeting between Pope Francis and Alfie Evan’s father this morning at the Casa Santa Marta in Rome....

    Alfie Evans’ father has said he is knocking “on the Church’s door” asking for help to save his son from being euthanized, and is pleading that his “voice be brought to the Holy Father” so that Alfie can be transferred to “the Pope’s hospital” in Rome. In a letter sent on Sunday to the archbishop of Liverpool, Thomas Evans also confirmed that he and Alfie are both baptized Catholics despite the archdiocese saying that they weren’t. So far the archdiocese has made no comment on the case.   Leaked internal memo According to an internal memo from the archdiocese leaked...

    As the parents of two year old Alfie Evans battle to save their son’s life in the face of hospital and state rulings to turn off his life support, a hospital in France has ordered the removal of food and water from a 42 year old patient who has been severely disabled for 10 years. The Sebastopol Hospital in Reims ruled on Monday that ordinary means of life support be removed from patient Vincent Lambert on April 19. Vincent suffered severe head injuries in an automobile accident in 2008 that left him a quadriplegic, but other doctors and his parents...

    The parents of baby Alfie Evans have lost custody over their son and he has now become a “ward of the court,” effective noon today. The news was shared by the family’s media coordinator.  “We are outraged that in further legally indefensible steps during the night, the hospital obtained a faxed order making Alfie a ward of the court, removing parental rights from Tom and Kate over their son Alfie, taking effect at noon today,” a press release authorized by the family’s legal team states.  “This once again is logically backwards, as all parents are responsible to protect their child...

    Defying a British publication ban, foreign media are reporting that Alfie Evans’ life support will be removed tomorrow. However, his parents have appealed the decision in a last-minute attempt to be allowed to determine their son’s course of care. Yesterday, Mr. Justice Hayden declared that the 23-month child’s life was “futile.” According to Italian newspaper La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana, the judge set April 13 as the date of Alfie’s death. This morning, Alfie’s parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, appealed this decision, asking the court to release their son into their care, so that they may take him to a...

    The majority of debate between pro-lifers and abortion advocates has centered around the 20-week abortion ban that failed in the Senate Monday. Another important bill, however, recently passed the House and would prevent babies who’ve been born after botched abortions from being murdered shortly thereafter.The U.S. House approved the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in January, and it requires health care practitioners to give the same care to a child born alive after a botched abortion as they would provide to any other child birthed at the same gestational age. They must also ensure that babies born after botched abortions are immediately admitted to a...

    Tomorrow the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act that would protect infants who survive a failed abortion. AFA encourages you to contact and urge your Congressman to vote for this bill. Just so you know, during the 114th Congress (2014-15), this same bill passed the House, but a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate allowed the bill to die. Senate Republican leadership, namely Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, is to blame despite the overwhelming number of Republican Senators who would have voted for the bill.

    A University of Tennessee student has argued that two-year-old children have no right to life because they cannot communicate. Students for Life of America have released a video interview of the unnamed student to illustrate the extreme positions taken by the pro-abortion movement. In the short clip, the male student is asked what he thinks about the argument that children can be “aborted” until the age of two. “I’ll buy that,” says the student although he proceeds to argue for the death of two-year olds, believing them to be incapable of communication. “The fact of the matter is that...

    From the University of Tennessee-Knoxville comes word of a shocking video of a student arguing in favor of infanticide — killing babies up to two-years-old. The video was filmed by Students for Life of America on the campus of Tennessee’s flagship taxpayer-funded university. “The idea that someone could support infanticide is incredibly disturbing. Yet, it reflects the kinds of attitudes our staff members and students can face on a daily basis on high school and college campuses,” Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins said. Brenna Lewis, SLA’s Appalachian regional coordinator, recorded one of the encounters in early December...

    Killing a baby in the womb is a good parenting decision. It's a blessing. It's normal. It's a family value. These essentially are the messages of a new billboard campaign by Ohio's largest abortion business, Preterm. The ads celebrate and normalize abortion, leaving out the part about the baby's death. The AP reports Preterm recently paid for 16 billboards in the Cleveland area that display the words "Abortion is ..." followed by different phrases, such as "a parenting decision," "a blessing," "liberty" and "your right." Other phrases include "life-saving," "necessary" and "a second chance." None of the billboards explain what...

    A San Diego abortion business that was the site of an abortionist’s “bizarre demonic rant” against a pro-life activist has been closed down by a chain of California clinics, according to Operation Rescue. Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger said this week the Miramar Road site, which is part of the FPA Women’s Health chain, was closed Nov. 17. It was abortionist Robert Santella who confronted pro-life activist Zephaniah Mel with a pair of surgical scissors, a rant that included hissing and growling, and a confession that he loved killing children. “That behavior, along with complaints of malpractice and botched abortions, resulted...

    Abortion, on the other hand, was a priority, said Thayer. She revealed that Planned Parenthood has an “in-house” “pot of money” to fund abortion “for women who otherwise might not be able to pay for it.” Ironically, the money was called the Justice Fund. To ensure women would return for abortion, Lancaster said they would offer even more incentives. “After paying pretty much, writing off the balance of the procedure, we would give them, $50 to a $150, basically cash, because it was on a Visa debit card for them to get a hotel and gas money to make sure...

    To the utter consternation of the abortion rights movement, the issue of abortion simply will not go away. Decades after abortion rights activists thought they had put the matter to rest with the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, America’s conscience is more troubled than ever, and near-panic appears to break out regularly among abortion activists. Such a panic is now under way, and the defenders of abortion are trotting out some of their most dishonest arguments. One of the worst is the claim that Christians have only recently become concerned about the sanctity of human life and the evil...

    September 21, 2017 (Public Discourse) — Imagine a day in the not-too-distant future when we finally have the coveted fifth vote necessary to strike down Roe v. Wade. Recall the many years of sweat and tears, ups and downs, wrangling about judicial nominations, and arguing about presidential elections. Then imagine that fifth vote no longer even matters because abortion has been declared a human right by international law. The issue is not just out of the hands of the Supreme Court — it is out of the hands of the American people. This nightmare is now unfolding before our very...
