    As a son of Georgetown University, I laughed at the pathetic Irish of Notre Dame when they made news for putting on their board Roxanne Martino, who gave a measly $27,000 to EMILY’s List, a group that works to elect pro-abortion politicians. That’s a trifle by Georgetown’s standards.

    TERRACE, British Columbia, April 27, 2011 ( – A British Columbia Green party candidate in Canada’s upcoming federal election said he’s glad he decided to “get rid of” his unborn child and appeared to imply that pregnant women look “like the back end of a bus.” “I am sick to death about hearing murdering babies,” said Roger Benham, Green candidate for Skeena-Bulkley Valley, in a candidates’ debate April 20th.  He told the audience that he had conceived a child with a woman when he was 25.  “Thank God we decided to get rid of it,” he said, according to the...

    In all, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia worked to defeat ten anti-choice bills and four budget amendments that threatened access to reproductive health care, prevention services and the perennial attempt to defund Planned Parenthood. This was an especially challenging General Assembly session. For the past several years, Planned Parenthood has been able to prevent anti-choice measures from passing. However, because anti-choice members of the General Assembly thwarted the democratic process they were able to pass two bills that were part of their anti-choice, anti-women’s agenda. The first bill that passed was SB 924, which included an amendment to unfairly target...

    This Democratic Senate and White House are clearly willing to disappoint their base on many issues. They've agreed to spending cuts and tax cuts for the wealthy, scrapped a public option, and continued warrantless wiretaps, indefinite detention of terrorism suspects and unnecessary wars on Arab dictators. But in last week's budget debate we glimpsed the party's unshakable core: dedication to the abortion lobby. President Obama had promised to veto the House-passed bill funding government through the end of the fiscal year, and Majority Leader Harry Reid made it clear the Senate would never pass it. But the final agreement --...

    Sen. Scott Brown, R-MA, is one of the only Senate Republicans who favor legal abortion. So today’s news that he will vote to keep tax money for Planned Parenthood is not shocking, but it is still disappointing.

Here’s the statement that Senator Brown issued today: “I support family planning and health services for women.

The state of Victoria, where the unnamed couple lives, does not allow sex selection using IVF unless it is done to avoid the risk...

    In college Elena Kagan wrote an essay lamenting Republican gains in the 1980 election and referring to candidates backed by the Moral Majority as "avengers of 'innocent life' and the B-1 bomber." Now that Kagan stands as a nominee to join the Supreme Court, some conservatives believe the 30-year-old remark may reveal a personal animosity toward their side of the abortion rights cause. But liberal activists also wonder about Kagan's position. They point to memos she wrote as a policy staffer in the Clinton White House urging President Clinton to take a compromise position on some late-term abortions.

The law requires doctors to notify the guardians of a girl 17 years old or younger 48 hours before the girl gets an abortion.

  • Abortion provision stays in health bill

    03/12/2010 5:28:41 AM PST · by freespirited · 17 replies · 619+ views
    House leaders have concluded they cannot change a divisive abortion provision in President Obama's health-care bill and will try to pass the sweeping legislation without the support of ardent anti-abortion Democrats. The approach would skirt a major obstacle for Democratic leaders in the final throes of a yearlong effort to change health care in the United States. But it sets up a risky strategy of trying to round up enough Democrats to overcome, not appease, a small but possibly decisive group of Democratic lawmakers in the House. Democratic leaders are working to rally rank-and-file members around agreements on several complicated...

    NEW YORK, February 26, 2010 ( - Following a period of relative silence since his installation last year, New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan eagerly took an opportunity to set forth Church teaching on controversial points, including the forbidding of public honors for pro-abortion politicians, in a recent interview with NY1.  The bishop also asserted that his outspokenness on such issues was simply part of his job as shepherd and teacher of the faith.When NY1 News reporter Roma Torre asked whether a pro-abortion Catholic should be invited to a "Catholic event" such as the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, Dolan's...

    WASHINGTON, DC, February 22, 2010 ( - A new health care bill proposed by President Obama Monday threatens to expand abortion even more drastically than the health care bills stymied in Congress over the past several months, says the National Right to Life Committee.The White House is threatening to ram the proposal through the Senate on a 51-vote majority using a tactic known as budget reconciliation.  The process circumvents the need for a filibuster-proof 60-vote majority by placing the health care overhaul under the heading of a "budget" bill."Any member of Congress who votes for the final legislation proposed by...

Now at a time of fiscal crisis when Washington should be tightening its belt and limiting its budget to the essentials, it has proposed an increase in funding (to the tune of $10 million) to an already expensive and dubious program dubbed “Title X”. In the 2010 proposed budget the President wants the tax payer to spend a whopping $327 million in total on “family planning” which includes direct funds to abortions here in the United States and globally, and direct funds to highly controversial...
