    Despite promises to the contrary by members of Congress and even the president, Americans now know that Obamacare is entangling tax dollars with coverage of elective abortion.Last week, the Government Accountability Office released a report confirming that more than 1,000 Obamacare exchange plans cover elective abortion but remain eligible for taxpayer subsidies.But that’s not the full story on how Obamacare funds the abortion industry.In addition to sending taxpayer money to plans that cover abortion, the massive health care law has created new avenues of public funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.Just a few weeks ago, the Department...

    IUDs and hormonal implants cost more, usually hundreds of dollars, because inserting them involves a medical procedure typically done in doctors' offices. But they're less expensive in the long run than over-the-counter condoms or prescription birth control pills, said Dr. Mary Ott, an adolescent medicine specialist and associate pediatrics professor at Indiana University. She is the policy statement's lead author,Teens have to remember to use pills and condoms consistently. By contrast, IUDs typically work for three to 10 years after insertion, while implants typically last three years. The new guidance was published Monday in Pediatrics. It echoes 2012 recommendations from...

    When pro-life advocates take the pro-life message to college and university campuses, they never know what kind of response they’ll get. They see it all — counter protests, people changing their minds on abortion, and even violence.Then, sometimes, they get some of the most outrageous responses from abortion activists who go out of their way to justify their view that abortion should be available on demand, for any reason and any time during pregnancy.But the pro-life advocates with Created Equal saw that pro-abortion argument taken to the next level when they visited Ohio State University.

    Spend any time talking to defenders of abortion, and pretty soon you’ll notice that more than a few words seem to suddenly change meanings. No, you’re not going crazy; pro-aborts simply find that some…creative…tweaking of the English language is necessary to make their logic work. Fortunately, we’re here to help. Armed with this guide to Team Abortion’s most common linguistic fictions, you can spend less of your next rhetorical excursion deciphering sophistry, and more time dismantling it. Here we focus on redefinitions surrounding the debate’s basic medical facts; Part 2 will set them straight on ethical terminology.

The lust that provocative clothing causes, is for sex, for pleasure outside of marriage, and not to bring a child into the world.

And this pregnancy could end with the unborn baby being murdered at an abortion mill.As many of you know, the 40 Days For Life has begun again.

    A German advisory council on ethics has told the government it should decriminalize incest between consenting adults. But Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ruling Christian Democrats have wasted no time in rejecting the advice. On Wednesday the National Ethics Council voted, by a two-to-one margin, to call for the decriminalization of incest. “Criminal law is not the appropriate means to preserve a social taboo,” the council explained in a statement. “The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination is to be weighed more heavily than the abstract idea of protection of the family.” Many might deem the “fundamental right…to sexual self-determination”...

    FULL TITLE: Episcopal priest praises new Planned Parenthood clinic as “safe place for the termination of pregnancy” It’s certainly no secret that some churches support the choice to abort. While it’s counter-intuitive to the Christian faith, which began with Mary’s unplanned pregnancy, it’s a reality in 2014 that many who identify as Christian also identify as pro-choice. Despite this troubling truth, it’s still disconcerting when a minister of the gospel speaks out and makes a statement welcoming a new abortion facility to his region the same way one might welcome a new business offering jobs to a troubled economy.

Sex trafficking in particular, which is categorized by law as a “severe form” of human trafficking, rebrands the person as a product to be bought and sold for pleasure. In the United States alone, the Central Intelligence Agency estimates that around 50,000 women and children are trafficked into the United States and as many as 400,000 domestic minors are also involved in the trade each year.

    Missouri just became the third state, after Utah and South Dakota, to implement a 72-hour waiting period for women seeking abortions. The pro-choice camp is adamantly denouncing the new state law, proclaiming that it causes women additional suffering. But waiting in and of itself does not cause suffering. Circumstances do. Often the woman suffers deeply not because she must await a medical procedure but because she agonizes over the circumstance that impels her to it. She agonizes over the fact that she is pregnant, and desperately does not want to be. She bears the agony of an unceasing inundation of...

    The New Hampshire Republican Party amended its platform this weekend with stricter abortion provisions, including support for "personhood," which defines life as beginning at conception.Personhood has become a hot-button issue in Senate races across the country this year, such as Colorado, where Democrats have successfully attacked Rep. Cory Gardner for having supported such a measure in the past.Now, the issue could spread to New Hampshire, following the state party's decision at its convention.The platform now states: "Support the pre-born child's fundamental right to life and personhood under the Fourteenth Amendment, and implement all Constitutional and legal protections."It added: "Support a...

    What kind of mother asks her baby to die for her? And what kind of media outlet celebrates that? To take the second question first, The Huffington Post is promoting a video featuring Scottish “poet” Leyla Josephine, celebrating her decision to abort her daughter. The video, “I Think She Was a She,” was uploaded to YouTube a month ago. In the video Josephine, decked out in military camouflage, justifies herself in part by saying that she would have been willing to serve as a sacrifice to abortion just as she offered her daughter to the idol of “choice.” “I would’ve...

    Editor’s Note: The following address was delivered by Don Feder, communications director for the World Congress of Families, at the International Forum: Large Family and the Future of Humanity in Moscow September 10-12, 2014. If current trends continue, we won’t run out of energy or other natural resources in the foreseeable future. We will run out of people. This global catastrophe will be the result of rapidly declining fertility, known as Demographic Winter. In 1960, worldwide, the average woman had 5 children. Now, that number is 2.6 and falling – in other words, a decline of almost 50 percent in...

  • ObamaCare architect Ezekiel Emanuel has anounced the ‘optimal age of death’ - you won’t like it

    Democrats seem to love death.  Whether they’re yammering about abortion or “end of life” planning, they just can’t get enough of talking up the myriad ways people can exit life’s stage.  They always claim this is simply a discussion about personal responsibility and individual choice but, since they despise those ideals in virtually every other matter, it’s a hard argument to buy. Enter Ezekiel Emanuel.  Emanuel was one of the chief architects of ObamaCare and is, of course, the brother of Rahm.  Over at The Atlantic, he’s penned an article about his own death and he’s made a shocking announcement...

    When I check my Facebook, I love to see people celebrating and sharing beautiful moments in their lives. But today as I peruse my page, I see heartache. First I see the mother of a girl I went to high school youth group with sharing that her mother will die of cancer in the next 48 hours. I pause as I remember building gingerbread houses at their home every year at Christmas time, remembering when life was normal. Then I see a post by a woman who I had talked to at a wedding I attended about a week prior....

    Let me tell you a little story. Once upon a time, my beloved uncle and aunt, who live in northern England, were close friends with a nice couple whom I’ll call Margaret and James. These were perfectly ordinary middle class people, who are of the immediate post-War generation, born in the mid-40s. They worked quite hard all their lives, and built a business, which did fairly well. They had assumed that this work would pay off in the long term, and that because they had planned carefully and wisely, and had saved and lived pretty sensibly, that they were more...

    Sometimes I get emotional whiplash. On one hand, we see very prominent bioethicists say that we should starve Alzheimer’s patients to death if they asked to be killed in an advance directive.Compassion and Choices teaches oldsters how to commit suicide by self-starvation.People like Peter Singer claim we should be allowed to lethally inject Alzheimer’s patients non-persons even if they never asked–despite having cared very well for his so afflicted mother.Then, there is the story of the man who gave his beloved wife, dying of Alzheimer’s, his last breath. Literally. From the KFOR story: An elderly couple, who had been together...

    A scathing report has been issued by Michigan Administrative Law Judge Shawn Downey, who has found that Muskegon abortionist Robert Alexander is responsible for negligence and incompetence under the state’s Public Health Code in a case involving filthy “Gosnell-like” conditions at Alexander’s Muskegon abortion business.Judge Downey based his conclusions on testimony and evidence presented at a disciplinary hearing held on September 3, 2014. His report has been forwarded to the Michigan Board of Physicians, which will later decide on a course of disciplinary action that could include license revocation.“Anything short of permanent license revocation is completely unacceptable,” said Operation Rescue...
