    The woman behind the 1973 ruling legalising abortion in the US is seen admitting in a new documentary that her stunning change of heart on the issue in later life was "all an act". Norma McCorvey, known as Jane Roe in the US Supreme Court's decision on Roe v Wade, shocked the country in 1995 when she came out against abortion. But in new footage, McCorvey alleges she was paid to switch sides. The documentary, AKA Jane Roe, airs this Friday on the US channel FX. The programme was filmed in the last months of McCorvey's life before her death...

The letter is unprecedented in its direct criticism of the UN bureaucracy’s promotion of abortion as humanitarian aid.Acting Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development John Barsa sent UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres a letter in which he corrected Guterres for “cynically placing the provision of ‘sexual and reproductive health services’ on the same level of...

    On Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that a California church could challenge the state mandate to pay for elective abortion through the church’s health insurance plan. Alliance Defending Freedom, which represented Skyline Wesleyan Church in the San Diego area, reports that the case was returned to the district court after the Ninth Circuit found the case had been improperly dismissed. The opinion issued by the Ninth Circuit states: We hold that Skyline has suffered an injury in fact. Before the Letters were sent, Skyline had insurance that excluded abortion coverage in a way that...

    The Congressman said that the headwinds he faced from the abortion lobby revealed the level of their concern to silence a pro-life Democratic voice.WASHINGTON, D.C. — Catholics have a critical role in bridging the divides of today’s polarized society, one outgoing Catholic congressman says. “We live in a very polarized society, and I think that’s bad for our society, bad for our country,” Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., an outgoing eight-term Catholic congressman from Chicago’s South Side, told CNA in an interview on Wednesday. “It seems very clear to me,” he said, that “more and more people are making their political...

Yahoo News reports the CBS special “The Price Is Right at Night” featured celebrity guest drag queen RuPaul playing for donations to the billion-dollar abortion group. According to the report, the show matched the contestants’ winnings with a donation to RuPaul’s charity of choice, and the contestants won prizes valued at $97,266. On the show, RuPaul said he chose Planned Parenthood because it “provides vital and often free services to both men and women.” But many fans were...

    Hospitals in the United States could lose more than $500 billion in 100 days during the coronavirus pandemic, according to former Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin. While Congress has appropriated $175 billion in total stimulus funding to hospitals, he said even that amount will not be enough to close the fiscal gap hospitals are facing. Without proper funding to offset major financial losses during the pandemic, the consequences to major hospitals could be dire. Large hospitals could begin to see their capabilities and care resources fade, warned Shulkin and others who have served at the helm of major hospitals. It...

    "Racists Are Going To Racist, And This Pandemic Is No Different," blared the headline on Twitter. "‘Reopen’ Protests Are Motivated By Racism, Lack of Concern for Black and Brown Lives," screamed the cover title. A helpful subtitle explained, “This op-ed argues that the calls to ‘liberate’ America are rooted in white entitlement.” All courtesy of everyone's favorite childish social justice warrior mag, Teen Vogue. Author Kandist Mallett began by complaining about “mostly white bodies who were not wearing masks nor practicing social distancing” on Huntington Beach, California.

    Joe Biden has embraced an increasingly radical pro-abortion position that contradicts his so-called Catholic faith. Presumed to be the Democrat presidential nominee, Biden recently abandoned his opposition to taxpayer-funded abortions and promised to codify Roe v. Wade into law. Last week, he went even further and called the killing of unborn babies an “essential medical service” during the coronavirus pandemic. His anti-life position should disqualify him as a viable candidate for Catholic voters. As Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas, said, and Pope Francis later confirmed, the abortion issue should be a “preeminent priority” for every Catholic voter. The...

    Even the abortion chain Planned Parenthood is struggling during the coronavirus crisis. Its Greater New York affiliate recently admitted that it had to lay off nearly one third of its staff this spring as patient visits dropped by more than half, Crain’s New York Business reports. This is good news for life. Planned Parenthood’s “core mission” is abortions, and abortions are not essential or necessary. They are life-destroying procedures that kill unborn babies and often harm mothers. According to the report, Planned Parenthood of Greater New York laid off 135 employees and furloughed or reduced the hours for 150 more....

    An effort by Iowa lawmakers to stop taxpayer dollars from funding the abortion giant Planned Parenthood was blocked in court this week. The AP reports Fifth Judicial District Judge Paul Scott ruled Wednesday against a state law that prohibits abortion providers from receiving grants for sex education. Scott said the law is unconstitutional because it violates Planned Parenthood’s right to equal protection. Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union challenged the pro-life law after Gov. Kim Reynolds, the first female governor of Iowa, signed it into law in 2019. Earlier, a judge blocked the state from enforcing the law...

    A new biography on Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton reveals that during her time as First Lady, Clinton participated in strange moments of imaginary conversation with a deceased Eleanor Roosevelt from the solarium atop the White House. Grove City College professor Paul Kengor’s “God and Hillary Clinton” also notes the religious devotion with which Senator Clinton advocates abortion. An overview of the book by Kengor’s Grove City colleague Dr. Warren Thockmorton notes that the book - with information from friends, colleagues and acquaintances - paints an accurate picture of Clinton’s version of faith. The woman who arranged the séance-type sessions atop...

    President Trump said Wednesday he will continue trying to toss out all of the Affordable Care Act, even as some in his administration, including Attorney General William P. Barr, have privately argued parts of the law should be preserved amid a pandemic. “We want to terminate health care under Obamacare,” Trump told reporters Wednesday, the last day for his administration to change its position in a Supreme Court case challenging the law. “Obamacare, we run it really well. . . . But running it great, it’s still lousy health care.” While the president has said he will preserve some of the Affordable...

    On Ellen DeGeneres’s daytime talk show Monday, the liberal comedian brought on celebrity couple, actress Gabrielle Union and retired NBA star Dwyane Wade, to praise them for their “supportive” decision to “transition” their pre-teen son into a girl. Along the way, the host and actress had some harsh words for parents who don’t share their same trendy views on parenting. Although Wade appeared later in the show, Union began the interview talking with Ellen. While lavishing praise on the couple’s decision to let their 12-year-old change genders, DeGeneres encouraged the actress to bash less woke parents as heartless monsters who...

At issue was an Unfair Competition Law claim brought by Planned Parenthood and the plaintiffs California Business & Professions Code.

    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) vetoed a bill Wednesday that would have expanded telemedicine services during the coronavirus outbreak because it excluded access to at-home, drug-induced abortions. Wolf, who has typically rejected pro-life legislation, vetoed Senate Bill 857, a measure that would have expanded virtual medical services for those unable to see their doctors in person, because the bill prohibited access to drugs to induce at-home abortions. In a veto message, the governor said a Pennsylvania House amendment to the legislation that banned telemedicine services that are not approved under the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Risk Evaluation and Mitigation...

    On March 6, I learned I was pregnant. Five days later, as the COVID-19 pandemic approached and threatened to upend our lives, my doctor, my partner, and I decided together to terminate the pregnancy. I understand what it means to be “pro-choice.” I have spent the past four years donating my time, talent, and money to Planned Parenthood whenever I can. I was (and still am!) a dedicated volunteer to support providing abortion services to anyone who wants it. Reproductive health services remain very much under threat, with some employers refusing to offer insurance coverage for contraceptives to their workers...

    Nancy Pelosi is at it again with another attempt to force Americans to fund abortions in legislation meant to help people dealing with the averse effects of the coronavirus. This time, Pelosi and House Democrats are wanting to fund abortions under legislation that’s supposed to help Americans who are unemployed and needing health insurance coverage. Pelosi is so dedicated to promoting abortion and forcing Americans to fund killing babies in abortion that, earlier this year, she was caught trying to add taxpayer financing of abortions to the bill to combat the Coronavirus and provide economic stimulus to the nation as...

    The Trump administration has acted to ensure that no funds from the new Paycheck Protection Program, set up to assist small businesses battered by COVID-19, will go to Planned Parenthood. “President Trump is committed to ensuring Paycheck Protection Program money is used for saving jobs at small businesses, not getting the government into the business of funding abortion,” a senior administration official told The Daily Signal. “While not all Americans share President Trump’s pro-life beliefs, there is broad bipartisan support for the idea that American taxpayers should not have to fund abortion,” the official said Wednesday night. >>> When can...
