    On Monday, PBS aired the controversial documentary “After Tiller,” a film that sympathizes with the four remaining late-term abortionists in the country. Pro-life groups immediately filed petitions urging the station to remove the film from its lineup, to no avail. Today, the documentary’s filmmakers and Dr. Susan Robinson, one of the abortionists featured in the film, participated in a Google Chat to field viewers’ questions. Their “answers” were misleading, accusatory, and, at times, outright lies.“What is the hardest part of your job?,” one Google participant asked Dr. Robinson: “Listening to the desperate, sad stories and not taking it on as...

    Millions of pro-life people may be up in arms about a pro-abortion film PBS will air this evening that “humanizes” late-term abortions, but the taxpayer-funded network doesn’t seem to care. Instead, it’s announced it is hosting a live video chat with the producers of the film, “After Tiller,” that glorifies late-term abortion practitioners. PBS posted a promotional for the chat on Saturday. Some pro-life groups are already encouraging pro-life advocates to be involved so the chat is not a one-sided affair in favor of abortion.

    During the last week of May abortion proponent Dawn Porter and members of the National Network of Abortion Funds traversed southern Texas and upper Mexico to film footage for an upcoming documentary, Trapped. Trapped will “look at the impact of Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws in the southern United States, and their disproportionate effect on women living in poverty.” There are currently no abortion clinics in the Rio Grande Valley, which borders Mexico. The nearest one in the U.S. is 230 miles north in San Antonio. The group filmed themselves crossing the border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer...

    Connecticut’s liberal Sen. Richard Blumenthal wants no one to have to worry about aborting unborn children late in pregnancy, very late. He favors abortion at any time prior to birth. It’s not clear yet whether he would vote to deny federal protection to newborns who survive an attempted abortion. Blumenthal was not in the Senate when that bill passed. Barack Obama was in the Illinois Senate when that state’s Infant Born-Alive Bill was killed. Then-Sen. Obama made sure that bill never got to the Governor’s desk. We should know what Sen. Blumenthal wants. He wants no protections at all for...

    Murdered in 2009 by anti-abortion fanatic Scott Roeder, Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller has since been immortalized by pro-aborts as a rhetorical cudgel to slander peaceful pro-life Americans as condoning and enabling violence (a standard they would naturally take great umbrage at if pro-lifers blamed their entire movement for violence committed by individuals on their side).Salon’s Katie McDonough interviewed abortionist Cheryl Chastine, the current medical director of Tiller’s former clinic, about “honor[ing] his memory by providing fearless care for Kansans”:On pro-life laws requiring Chastine to give her patients “information that is intended to mislead them”: It feels like there’s a...

    Today on Slate’s feminist XX blog, there was a headline that read: Even if She Loses in Texas, Wendy Davis Is a Win for America. Seriously? So, a Texas State Senator, who filibustered a bill that would ban abortions twenty-weeks into a pregnancy last summer, is a “win for America?” Jessica Grose, who wrote the article, added: Now, for all the support Davis’ campaign has received from fellow Democrats in Washington and elsewhere—former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm called her “Joan of Arc, standing up there for women all across the country”—she’s still running for governor of a deeply red state....

    One year ago, on March 18, 2013, the trial of abortion monster Dr. Kermit Gosnell began in Philadelphia. Two months later Gosnell was convicted on three charges of murder, 21 felony counts of performing illegal late-term abortions, and 211 counts of violating the 24-hour informed consent laws. Gosnell’s convictions really just reflected the tip of the iceberg of what was going on in that clinic. Until inspectors showed up in February 2010 as result of investigation into suspected illegal drug prescription use, Gosnell’s facility operated uninspected for 17 years. According to the Grand Jury report, the last state inspection, before...

    The reaction to Wendy Davis’ statement that she could support a ban on late-term abortion if there were more deference given to patients and physicians has caused angst in a Democratic base already upset over Davis’ support of Open Carry laws. Amanda Marcotte at called it a betrayal (emphasis added): "Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis made her name and kick-started her campaign for governor by filibustering an anti-abortion omnibus bill, standing and talking for 11 hours straight in support of abortion rights.

    In a poll done by Gallup earlier this year, the biggest complaint lodged against the Republican Party was “inability to compromise.” When I read the daily headlines, I see this theme continue. Republicans, particularly tea party Republicans, are portrayed as obstructionist, extreme, unreasonable, and unwilling to compromise. But let’s get perspective. If we are talking about trying to decide what day of the week to collect the garbage, and one wants Monday and one wants Friday, so the side that refuses to compromise on Wednesday might but be considerable unreasonable. But this isn’t the kind of national discussion we are...

On Friday, July 19, several pro-life leaders demanded justice and burial for the bodies of 45 babies found in convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion clinic.

Before the firestorm surrounding George Zimmerman's exercising his right to self-defense, there was Kermit Gosnell, the late-term abortion doctor who was convicted of murdering African-American babies who somehow survived his procedure only to be slain outside the womb. Unlike Zimmerman, Gosnell received little media concern, though the children he killed would never grow up to wear a hoodie, and abortion, including the late-term variety, poses...

    The House passed a historic piece of legislation last week that prohibits late term abortion. The “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” -- introduced by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) along with 187 co-sponsors and passed in the House by a vote of 228 to 196 -- prohibits abortion after 20 weeks. As Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) noted in her remarks, science is clear that, at the end of the second trimester of pregnancy, the unborn child feels pain. This initiative was a response in the House to the outrage triggered by the Kermit Gosnell tragedy, with the Philadelphia abortion doctor recently...

They wanted to prevent a well-known late-term abortionist, LeRoy Carhart, from opening a clinic in Iowa, and they wanted to outlaw telemed abortions. Telemed abortions are where a woman seeking an abortion consults with a doctor over a webcam. After the online consultation, the physician can electronically dispense the abortion drug RU486 without ever having seen or examined the woman in person. Iowa pro-lifers had a good reason to be optimistic. A majority of the public found the type of...

The second was the dispiriting saga of the recently murdered late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller.  What the two stories have in common is that each was consciously and completely mistold by the major media. The media did this for one particular reason: They want their audiences to envision the face of the pro-life movement not as young, diverse, passionate, and idealistic, but...

(It's not like Crawford, Texas, ached for Cindy Sheehan, either, but she was more to Time's liking.) And he strangely suggested that first-trimester or second-trimester babies are somehow "abstract" on a moral scale: Tiller was the rare physician willing to follow America's ambivalence about abortion to its ragged edge. In his drab clinic here with hospital beds in the basement, Tiller performed not only comparatively abstract early...

    "Thou Shalt Not Kill." This law was given to Moses by God as part of the Ten Commandments. Jesus Christ Himself said everyone should follow this law, Jew and Gentile alike. Indeed, one of Christ's most important messages was to love our neighbor, especially our enemies, and He told us to pray for those who do evil. Therefore, any Christian who tries to live a Christlike life, is obliged to adhere to these teachings. However, in all honesty, when I first heard about the murder of Dr. George Tiller, at best, my reaction was ambivalence. What came to my mind...

    On Friday afternoon, March 27, it took a Wichita jury just 45 minutes to acquit Dr. George Tiller of 19 misdemeanor charges relating to his prolific late-term abortion business. Tiller needed help. And for those paying attention, the real help came not in the courtroom but in the proverbial back room where, some three years earlier, Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius engineered the deal that would keep Tiller’s practice alive. Sebelius persuaded Paul Morrison, the popular Republican District Attorney of the state’s most affluent county, to switch parties and run against sitting AG Phill Kline. Kline had proved deadly serious in...

    Topeka, KS ( -- Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius came under fire from national television talk show host Bill O'Reilly last night for vetoing another bill that would have held abortion practitioners accountable. She turned back a measure that would have required them to say why they did late-term abortions in each case. The Kansas legislature approved the measure after Wichita late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller had been the subject of dozens of charges that he did late-term abortions for specious reasons outside of Kansas law. Kansas only allows the abortions in rare cases of legitimate medical emergencies. Former Attorney General...
