    At record-breaking speed, public donations to fund a movie about the nation's worst abortionist, Philadelphia doctor Kermit Gosnell, have reached over $ 1 million, making the project one of the biggest “crowd sourced” movies in history. In just three weeks, the producers of "Gosnell" have reached $1,092,000 of the $2.1 million they are seeking to make a TV movie about the man they've dubbed "the most prolific serial killer in American history." With the help of some Hollywood stars, the producers expect to raise the money by May 12, the deadline set by the online crowdsourcing fundraiser Filmmaker Phelim...

    The Dalai Lama got a frosty closed-door reception from President Barack Obama Feb. 21, one day after he got a public bear-hug from the conservative American Enterprise Institute. The world’s most famous Buddhist returned the conservatives’ respect by offering a compliment for the AEI’s civic-minded capitalism. “After to listen [sic] yesterday and to the presenters today, I developed more respect about capitalism,” the Dalai Lama told AEI president Arthur Brooks Feb. 20 during a friendly panel discussion on “happiness, free enterprise, and human flourishing.” The president forced the Dalai Lama to pay a price for the United States’ tepid and...

    Many are questioning why officials at the University of Notre Dame are inviting the most pro-abortion president in our history to receive an honorary doctorate of laws. Doesn’t this make a mockery of Notre Dame’s historic role as the premier Catholic university in America? Doesn’t this create a scandal for the Catholic faithful as well as for the larger community of Americans who are not Catholic? Much of the fierce public debate has centered on why Notre Dame would extend such an honor. The divisions exposed by this invitation are deep and worrisome. What we need to ask is why...

    I cannot listen to that phrase any longer, “abortion rights”, without responding. I just watched Norah O'Donnell on MSNBC characterize President Obama’s opposition to the fundamental human right, the Right to life, as being a position which supports what she called “abortion rights.” She then proceeded to give a lame analysis of the reasons so many oppose his being honored with a “Doctor of Law” by the University of Notre Dame this weekend. The claim of a “right” to abort an innocent child is heinous enough when it is described as a woman’s “Right to Choose” an abortion. Yet, that...

    Sometime after lunch Sunday, perhaps even as President Barack Obama receives his honorary degree and addresses the new graduates of the University of Notre Dame, a priest from one of New Orleans' cherished black institutions will mount a platform on the South Quad and tell a crowd of demonstrators how disappointed he is that the university is honoring Obama, a supporter of abortion rights. It is an extraordinary time for the Rev. John Raphael, principal of St. Augustine High School, a seedbed of black leadership in New Orleans. Raphael is a Catholic priest, a St. Aug alumnus and a 1989...

    "Catholics are often liberal and conservative at the same time. It's hard to pigeon-hole us." Jerry Kellman speaks as an example. He's Catholic and opposed to abortion. But he says President Obama does not deserve the heat he's getting for his speech at Notre Dame. "The church, above all institutions is committed to dialog and reconciliation. So if we're not willing to take the recommendation of the graduating class of Notre Dame University -- some of our finest young men and women -- then I think we're out of step with our own values." Kellman knows the President better than...

In light of Obama's recently achieved status as the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Focus on the Family's CitizenLink has decided to remind its supporters that almost one year has passed since Obama made his vows to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund that abortion would be the first priority of his administration.

    According to Barack Obama, Gianna Jessen shouldn't exist. Miss Jessen is an exquisite example of what antiabortion advocates call a "survivor." Well into her third trimester of pregnancy, Gianna's biological mother was injected with a saline solution intended to induce a chemical abortion at a Los Angeles County abortion center. Eighteen hours later, and precious minutes before the abortionist's arrival, Gianna emerged. Premature and with severe injuries that resulted in cerebral palsy. But alive. Had the abortionist been present at her birth, Gianna would have been killed, perhaps by suffocation. As it was, a startled nurse called an ambulance, and...
