    At the end of World War II, American soldiers walked German civilians through the death camps in order to help them wake up to the reality that Jews were systematically killed. The public’s imagination had to be shocked awake through deliberate uncovering of evidence that the Holocaust happened right there in their midst. Today, due diligence must likewise awaken the American conscience from the lull of the abortion status quo where power and privilege reside.David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress are currently escorting the American public through the the back rooms of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities in order...

    In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says that state legislatures and governors now need to stand up and lead on defunding Planned Parenthood. I encourage every state legislature and every governor to stand up and lead on Planned Parenthood, the GOP presidential contender said. Unfortunately, Republican leadership in Washington is unwilling to lead and, indeed, its Republican leadership whos joined with Barack Obama in leading the fight to preserve taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Utah, and New Hampshire have moved to eliminate Medicaid funding from Planned Parenthood after investigative videos have exposed...

    Controversial anti-abortion activist Troy Newman has been detained at Melbourne Airport after he travelled to Australia despite his visa being cancelled. Mr Newman, who has questioned why doctors who perform abortions were not sentenced to death, had previously been stopped in Denver in the US en route to Australia. He had his visa cancelled by the Department of Immigration on Tuesday. A spokeswoman for the Minister for Immigration Peter Dutton confirmed to Daily Mail Australia Mr Newman had been detained on Thursday morning.

    As Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards prepared to testify to Congress about the filthy business she leads -- thanks in large part to an infusion of a half-billion dollars in federal funds every year -- her marketing team tried to change the subject to everything else. They put out a video coaching young people how to make sure they get full consent before sexual activity. This is ironic, considering the Center for Medical Progress tapes include an insider saying Planned Parenthood routinely failed to seek the mother's consent before "donating" the parts of her baby to fetal tissue researchers.

    October 1, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Arriving in the Philippines last January, Pope Francis warned his millions of listeners to resist “ideological colonization.” This destructive assault on families, the Pope continued, included efforts to “redefine the very institution of marriage, by relativism, by the culture of the ephemeral, by a lack of openness to life.” Africans, above all, know what he is talking about. After all, their continent has been the playground of Western imperialists for the past two centuries. Their bodies were enslaved, and their countries were colonized. Now the target is their very minds. The assembled African bishops—all 40 or so...

Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. Pornography depicting the brutalization of women and girls is among the most popular material on the Internet.

    Kristan Hawkins, the national president of Students for Life of America, recently wrote an article on the use of so-called graphic images in the anti-abortion movement. Hawkins goal in writing the article was not to make a categorical argument against using pictures of abortion victims. Instead, she argued against their overuse in pro-life advocacy. Unfortunately, the article was marred by some significant tactical, factual, and logical errors. I am writing today to provide a respectful response to some of those errors. Hawkins committed a serious tactical error in the opening of her article - one that has justifiably upset a...

Democrats seem certain to block Republican legislation banning most late-term abortions in a Senate showdown with plenty of political significance but little suspense. Though the GOP controls the Senate, Democrats appeared certain to prevent them from getting the 60 votes needed Tuesday to move ahead on the bill.

Let’s remember that this was not a vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and to ban abortion on demand. This was not even a vote to ban late term abortions or, more extreme still, a vote to guarantee medical care for babies that survived abortion attempts. This was as basic as it comes: a bill to defund...

Supporters of Planned Parenthood said the videos were deceptively edited to smear the organization, but critics have used the videos in a push to defund it. The ad, which will air in a short-run buy, has a familiar but time-tested approach. "First, Kelly Ayotte voted to...

    There has been a lot of back and forth between left and right on the integrity of all of the undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood to be the evil organization honest people have always known it to be. The truth of the matter is most people aren't going to watch the videos. I've seen clips here and there, but as a father of two and knowing unequivocally that a fetus is a human being I honestly don't have it in me to watch them all. I just don't. For those who can't (me) or wont watch all of the footage...

    When I write about Margaret Sanger’s May 1926 speech to the women’s chapter of the KKK in Silverlake, New Jersey—as I did again recently—liberals get upset. They accuse me of distortion and even making up the whole thing. Many of them cannot find it within themselves to condemn this sordid moment. One writer in the Huffington Post, who was highly unimpressed with, went so far as to assert that the KKK “was almost a mainstream group then, if still clandestine.”Well, maybe or maybe not, but it was still a rather hideous group. Can we not agree on that? This unending...

    TORONTO, September 17, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Ontario’s governing body for doctors issued an official policy last week that forces doctors unwilling to kill patients or help them commit suicide to directly refer them to a doctor who would. The policy, titled Planning for and Providing Quality End-of-Life Care, was quietly released by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario September 10, seven months after Canada’s highest court ruled that doctors could actively participate in bringing about the deaths of their patients. Patients cannot request death until the ruling comes into effect February 2016. In the “managing conflicts” section dealing...

    As genocide studies reveal, we are all capable of justifying and committing extreme evil under the right circumstances. Some of my dearest friends are pro-choice, and some of my dearest friends are pro-life. I have known these women and men to varying degrees over the course of my lifetime, and I can say beyond doubt that regardless of their political leanings, none is even remotely a monster. Despite the incredible popularity on social media of polarizing people according to ideology to punish them, Ive never felt an urge to maliciously single out my liberal friends to publically castigate them, even...

    In the book, Aborting Aristotle: Examining Fatal Fallacies in the Abortion, pro-life author Dave Sterrett said he met a Presbyterian minister who believed a baby isnt truly a person until he or she has been loved. He explained, A Presbyterian minister in my city once said that he would support his teenage daughter to get an abortion. When another pastor asked him, When do you believe a human person begins to exist? The Presbyterian minister replied, I think someone becomes a person when they are loved. This is a fascinating view on personhood, especially coming from a Christian religious leader...

    One hundred-fifty presidents, prime ministers, dictators, and other heads of state are coming. Pope Francis is coming. Thousands of journalists, diplomats, and NGO activists are coming. The United Nations Sustainable Development Summit, to be held September 25-27, at the UN headquarters in New York City, is set to become one of the global bodys biggest confabs ever. In addition to promoting global-warming fears and the UNs Paris Summit on Climate Change in December, as well as global taxation, education, and environmental goals, the upcoming September gathering will undoubtedly be used as a springboard to impose more population control, abortion, and...

    The recent Planned Parenthood videos showing doctors and medical technicians casually describing fetal dismemberment are an instructive slap across the face for all who remain anesthetized to what happens in an abortion. One well-known cable news anchor was visibly upset when discussing the first video with her on-air guest:“Where is your humanity?” she asked. “[The Planned Parenthood doctor] is guzzling down wine and stuffing her face full of salad while she talks about the end of a potential life.… I’m saying there ought to be some humanity and respect for the dignity of a potential life.” (Emphasis added)That this...

    September 15, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Planned Parenthood officials are proud of being able to harvest "fresh" babies' organs, including eyes and genitals, and admit such practices "generate a fair amount of income" in the latest video released by the Center for Medical Progress, released this morning. The video, the fourth in CMP's "Human Capital" series, captured abortion industry leaders saying that money for aborted babies' body parts is a "valid exchange" - but the organization will not be "bullied by ridiculous laws." Leaders also admit the national office deliberately keeps all discussion of such activity at arms-length, and exposing the...
