    The House of Representatives today approved a pro-life bill that bans abortions from after 20-weeks of pregnancy up to the day of birth. The vote for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act broke down on mostly partisan lines with Republicans supporting the ban on late-term abortions and Democrats opposing it. The House approved the bill on a 237-189 vote. Should the Senate approve the bill, President Donald Trump would sign the pro-life bill into law. “Overwhelming majorities of Americans—some 60-64% according to pollsters—support legal protection for pain-capable unborn children,” said pro-life Congressman Chris Smith. “Today we know that unborn...
  • Late Abortion Bill Deserves a Straight Up or Down Vote in the Senate

    Editor's Note: This column originally appeared on's Note: This column originally appeared on the third presidential debate, President Trump became the clear pro-life pick for president in 2016. Trump denounced the torturous and horrifying practice of partial-birth abortion, explaining the process with stomach-churning detail, while Hillary Clinton ‘robotically’ defended aborting the child in the ninth month. This moment was a turning point in the election. A quarter of Americans said that the debates were the ‘most important factor’ in their decision to vote. I strongly believe, as others have surmised, Trump’s pro-life commitments made the critical difference in his...

    A Kansas judge ordered some of the 107 charges filed against Planned Parenthood for engaging in illegal abortions and covering up those cases thanks to the destruction of records that took place during the Sebelius administration.The case with 107 charges against Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri came about when former state attorney general Phill Kline brought the charges after obtaining evidence in patient records showing Planned Parenthood committed illegal late-term abortions and then manufactured documents to cover up their crimes. The charges allege the abortion business potentially engaged in illegal abortions and violated state record-keeping laws. Kline, as the...

    In July of 1993, a 15-year old mother was brought to Women’s Health Care Services to abort her little girl in the late stages of pregnancy. In fact, so far advanced was the pregnancy that the baby was already in position for delivery.Not having yet perfected his induction method of abortion, according to accounts, Tiller “injected the baby’s head, in two places, the left side of her forehead above the eyebrow and at the base of the skull, with Potassium Chloride, leaving permanent burn marks and needle track scars.”When the young mother returned the next day for the actual abortion...

    Young women and men supporting late-term abortions shouted ‘Hail Satan’ throughout the day as the Texas House and Senate convened a special session to discuss timekeeping measures following Democrat Wendy Davis’ filibuster de-railing the vote to limit abortions to 20 weeks and establishing stricter safety standards for abortion clinics. On one occasion some young women shouted ‘Hail Satan’ as Christians gave personal testimony about  abortion and sang ‘Amazing Grace’.Breibart reports:‘It would be difficult to argue that the pro-abortion crowd wasn’t an “unruly mob” — last week protesters shut down proceedings by screaming from the gallery and used social media to debate...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Wearing pink tennis shoes to prepare for nearly 13 consecutive hours of standing, a Democratic Texas state senator on Tuesday began a one-woman filibuster to block a GOP-led effort that would impose stringent new abortion restrictions across the nation's second-most populous state.

    Maryland does not know its teen pregnancy rate. It’s a fact that confounds Nancy Paltell, associate director for respect life at the Maryland Catholic Conference (MCC). The teen pregnancy rate is calculated by adding teen births, miscarriages and abortions, and the state does not collect abortion statistics. The statistics are also necessary for the state to assess the effectiveness of state-funded programs to reduce unwanted pregnancies or births, or identify abortion trends. Paltell addressed the issue March 20 in testimony before the Senate Finance committee. The committee heard arguments on three abortion-related bills – one to require abortion statistic reporting;...

    LOS ANGELES — “Law & Order,” the long-running NBC series about crime and punishment, rarely shies away from inflammatory topics, and Friday night it takes on one of the most contentious — abortion — for just the third time in the program’s 20 seasons. In the show’s customary ripped-from-the-headlines style, the new episode focuses on the murder, in a church, of a doctor who performs late-term abortions. Though the episode, which will be broadcast at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time, begins with the disclaimer that the story “is fictional and does not depict any actual person or event,” its...

    A headline you will not read in the mainstream media is "Dr. Death Meets Death" – however, that describes the end of Dr. George Tiller's life precisely. His murder is tragic in a number of ways, beginning with a life created by God that was misspent on the destruction of life. The blood on his hands cried out for justice that could only lawfully be applied through civil authorities and only mitigated eternally through Another's blood shed for his sins. Neither of those was accomplished for Tiller. The first element of this tragedy is that unlike serial killers who "unlawfully"...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. - A 22-year-old woman fatally stabbed her two young children in a convenience store bathroom Thursday, police said.

The worker called 911, and when deputies arrived they forced the door open and found Hawes on the floor, holding a steak knife and covered in the children's blood, Strength said.

    There is something terrible going on in Kansas, and you should know about it. A doctor named George Tiller is performing hundreds, perhaps thousands, of late-term abortions using a variety of medical reasons, including a mother's depression. In Kansas, there is a mental health exception that allows an abortionist to terminate a fetus at any time up until birth. The exception is vague, and so is Tiller's oft-used depression diagnosis, according to documents currently under investigation by Kansas authorities. So the deal is this: If you want to walk away from your pregnancy at any time, just contact Dr. Tiller;...

    QUEBEC - The province hopes to have a doctor in place next year that will offer late-term abortions to women six months pregnant and beyond, Quebec health officials announced Friday. Canadian women now travel to Colorado, Kansas and Washington to obtain these abortions because no Canadian doctor will perform them, including Dr. Henry Morgentaler, who says he has ethical problems performing 24-week pregnancies. But despite his personal views, Morgentaler doesn't believe new rules on late-term abortions are needed because most abortions take place between six and nine weeks of pregnancy. The government's decision on late-term abortion was defended by Quebec...

    JACKSON, Miss. - A federal judge on Friday blocked Mississippi from enforcing a new law that bars late-term abortions at abortion clinics, instead requiring patients to go to hospitals or outpatient surgical facilities. U.S. District Judge Tom S. Lee said the law did nothing new to protect patient health. Jackson Women's Health Organization sued June 29 to have the law declared unconstitutional. The judge had issued a temporary restraining order July 2 and a preliminary injunction Friday. The new law barred abortions at abortion clinics starting at 13 weeks' gestation. Previously, abortions were allowed there at up to 16 weeks'...

    Being a part of the Good Friday -- Holy Saturday Prayer Vigil | April 21, 2003 | Vanity -- topher
    This time last year, pro-lifers around the Atlanta area had the first "Friday before Easter Sunday" prayer vigil at a late term abortion clinic. This is Surgi Center -- which across the street from one of the TBS (Turner Broadcasting Systems) buildings at 1113 Spring Street in Atlanta. At that time, a Deputy Sheriff (who moonlighted as a security guard at the abortion clinic) would arrest Pro-Lifers for being on a public sidewalk. There were "Death-scorts" -- Escorts for those going into the abortion clinic. Supposedly some of those were involved in witchcraft. This year is the difference between day...
  • Va. Abortion Override Vote Fails

    Filed at 7:52 p.m. ET RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- State lawmakers failed Wednesday to override Gov. Mark R. Warner's veto and revive Virginia's ban on a late-term abortion procedure. The House of Delegates voted 71-28 to override the veto, but the 24-14 vote in the Senate was three votes shy of the two-thirds majority needed to pass the bill. Two senators did not vote. Warner vetoed the bill earlier this month, saying it lacked sufficient exceptions for women who have problems late in pregnancy. The measure sought to outlaw a procedure critics refer to as ``partial-birth abortion.'' The bill resembled...
