  • Surprise: Democrats To Block Late Term Abortion Bill

    As we once again get down to the wire on a potential government shutdown, Senate Democrats are taking an extreme stance on abortion and plan to block legislation introduced by Republicans to ban abortions after five months of pregnancy.  Democrats seem certain to block Republican legislation banning most late-term abortions in a Senate showdown with plenty of political significance but little suspense. Though the GOP controls the Senate, Democrats appeared certain to prevent them from getting the 60 votes needed Tuesday to move ahead on the bill. It would be the second time since this summer's release of videos involving...
  • Scott Walker Signs 20-Week Abortion Ban Into Law

    The Huffington Post ^ | July 20, 2015 | Laura Bassett
    WASHINGTON -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) signed a bill into law on Monday that bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy unless the mother's life is in danger. The legislation, which passed the GOP-controlled state legislature earlier this month, makes no exceptions for severe fetal anomalies or for victims of rape and incest. Walker, a 2016 presidential candidate, said he supports the legislation because fetuses can feel pain at 20 weeks -- an assertion that has been disputed by the mainstream medical community. "At five months, that's the time when that unborn child can feel pain," Walker said Monday....

    Salon ^ | June 3, 2015 | Katie McDonough is Salon's politics writer, focusing on gender, sexuality and reproductive justice.
    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said this week that he was prepared to sign a measure banning abortion at 20 weeks without an exception for rape or incest because it’s only “in the initial months” that victims are “most concerned” about access to care. Walker, who is expected to announce his run for president at the end of the month, said that such an exception didn’t matter and that he would sign the bill regardless. “I mean, I think for most people who are concerned about that, it’s in the initial months where they’re most concerned about it,” Walker said. “In...

    It was sort of inevitable that on his first day of campaigning as an announced candidate for president earlier this month, Rand Paul would be asked whether he supported a ban on abortions in cases of rape or incest. Reporters have been asking Republican candidates that question ever since 2012, when the Missouri Republican Senate candidate said he supported such a ban and added that pregnancies were unlikely in cases of "legitimate rape." But Paul's reply wasn't what the reporter expected. "Why don't we ask the (Democratic National Committee) is it OK to kill a seven-pound baby in the uterus?...

  • West Virginia Overrides Governor's Veto On Abortion Law

    The newly elected Republican legislature in West Virginia flexed its muscles today by overriding Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin veto of an abortion law that would ban the practice after 20 weeks. In other words, late-term abortion is banned in West Virginia (via AP): The ban provides some exemptions for women in medical emergencies, but not for rape and incest. The bill is based on the assertion that fetuses can feel pain at 20 weeks, which is disputed in medical research. Opponents say it's unconstitutional and intrusive into doctor-patient relationships. Ten other states ban abortions after 20 weeks. The West Virginia...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A Democrat has refiled a proposal banning abortions after 20 weeks gestation in West Virginia, despite its veto last year. On Tuesday, Fayette County Del. David Perry reintroduced the bill that Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed. It bans abortions after 20 weeks, except for when expectant mothers have certain serious medical emergencies. Leading up to last year's election, the Democratic-run House and Senate passed the proposal overwhelmingly.

    NARAL Pro-Choice America made a shocking move recently. The organization’s president Ilyse Hogue announced how freaked out it is by a new effort to protect preborn children. What’s got NARAL panicked this time is the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act–legislation that would ban abortions after twenty weeks. Part of the impetus comes from Dr. Kawaljeet Anand’s research at the University of Tennessee, as his work suggests that a fetus can suffer pain by week twenty. This is especially relevant in light of what a second trimester abortion typically involves: pulling the fetus apart one piece at a time. While some...

    Abortionist Curtis Boyd, who has been committing abortions since before they were legalized in 1973, was featured Friday by UK-based publication The Guardian in a piece on American abortionists. The tone of the piece is one of shock and dismay that America has grown more pro-life, rather than more accepting of the tenets of Roe v. Wade, since 1973. To drive this point home, the piece includes this startling infographic from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute displaying the radical pro-life shift in opinion as evidenced by legislative restrictions on abortion. For The Guardian and for abortionists like Boyd America’s lack of...

    Rebecca Traister attempts to come off as some authority on women, feminism, and the reality of abortion in her New Republic piece entitled “Let’s Just Say It: Women Matter More Than Fetuses Do.” She fails at this task. She opens her piece by commenting on how she woke up one day in September and realized the implications of the fact that she was 24 weeks pregnant—it meant she had “lost one of the most important tools available to women: the ability to exert control over what’s going on inside my uterus.” Despite the fact that she is carrying a baby...

Rather, it’s because “[a]nti-choice Republicans are about to take over the Senate–and Mitch McConnell has already said that one of the very first things he’ll do is pass a ban on abortion after 20 weeks.” For evidence of the impending takeover, Ms. Hogue pointed to the Iowa senate race, where “polls say the anti-choice candidate is ahead by 2.5 points.” That “anti-choice candidate” would be Joni...

    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...

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.

    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...

    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.

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...

More than 300 people formed a procession Sunday evening from Mother Seton Catholic Church in Germantown to an abortion clinic a half mile away. As they walked, they prayed in unison for unborn babies, their mothers and the man who has been providing late-term abortions in Montgomery County. "We want to give voice to the unborn," said David Gallogly of Germantown. "To touch the hearts of those who feel they have no other choice than to choose death," said his...

    The Iowa Republican ^ | July 1, 2011 | Craig Robinson
    Following the historic elections of 2010, the pro-life community in Iowa set some modest goals for the upcoming legislative session. 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...
  • Will Iowa become the "late-term abortion capital" of the U.S.?

    Females from all over the country will travel to Iowa for late-term abortions if the state senate does not act quickly, according to pro-life organization Operation Rescue. Leroy Carhart is the country’s foremost practitioner of late-term abortions. He plans to open a clinic in the Council Bluffs area very soon, even promoting it on his website. House File 657 is a bill aimed at blocking Carhart from coming to Iowa, by banning abortions after 20 weeks. It should be discharged soon from the Government Oversight Committee, opening it for full debate in the Iowa Senate. The bill’s fate there remains...

    Topeka — Kansas' top public health official said Monday that his office will require abortion providers to give the state more details about late-term procedures they perform, a change long sought by abortion opponents and one likely to be seen by abortion rights supporters as a move further limit such procedures. Health and Environment Secretary Robert Moser told The Associated Press that his department's interpretation of a law requiring physicians to file reports on each late-term abortion after they are performed is different than how the law has been enforced in the past.

    As a multi-client lobbyist, I’ve focused primarily on religious liberty, parental rights, school choice, and education reform issues since I started lobbying in 2007. Most of my clients have had some interest in education and I have gotten to know the stakeholders involved from every side of the issue. I love working on the issue. I’ve always been open, however, to working on other issues as they are brought to me.

    INDIANAPOLIS -- A Nebraska doctor who is one of few in the U.S. performing late-term abortions said Wednesday he wants to ensure more women have access to the procedure by expanding to other states that are less restrictive, including Indiana. Dr. Leroy Carhart said Nebraska's new restrictions on abortions led to his decision. "We need a place where we can do our patients without the harassment of the courts," Carhart said. The first of Carhart's new clinics will open next month in Maryland, with a second clinic to follow in Iowa and a third in Indianapolis. The clinics will be...

    This past year, I found myself chief chronicler of the two of the year's most important stories involving the pro-life movement.  One was the inspiring saga of the 2009 March For Life, the largest in its 36-year history. 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...

    Omaha, NE ( -- Late-term abortion practitioner LeRoy Carhart announced today that he had laid off nearly half of the staff at his Omaha, Nebraska-area abortion center.
