  • The LA Times Wants You to Feel Bad About Babies Being Born

    MRC TV ^ | February 4, 2016 | Brittany M. Hughes
    In bold, stark lettering, an article by the LA Times featured the following ground-breaking headline splashed across its Wednesday edition: “After Texas Stopped Funding Planned Parenthood, Low-Income Women Had More Babies.” The article is based on a recent study conducted by the Population Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin and published in the New England Journal of Medicine, which seeks to link a recent 1.9 percent increase in Texas births paid for by Medicaid to the fact that the state cut off funding to the nation's largest abortion provider last year. In other words, more babies are...

    DERRY, NH, February 5, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) - Hillary Clinton has a litmus test for Supreme Court nominees - several, in fact. At a Democratic event on Wednesday, Clinton unveiled her criteria in selecting a judge for the nation's highest court. “I do have a litmus test, I have a bunch of litmus tests," she said. "We’ve got to make sure to preserve Roe v. Wade, not let it be nibbled away or repealed,” she said. There have been over 58,000,000 abortions since the 1973 court ruling legalizing abortion in all 50 states, according to National Right to Life. That echoes her...

    In 2014, the British government reported 12 late-term unborn babies were aborted simply because they had Down syndrome. This disturbing statistic is prompting one mother of a boy with the condition to put a stop to the deadly, discriminatory practice. Sarah Roberts from Guildford, England, is a mother of three who is trying to convince others that the lives of those with Down syndrome have value. Roberts’ son Oscar has the genetic disorder. She tells Eagle radio: “A lot of the children we hang around with are typical children. They don’t necessarily notice any differences yet but I’m sure as...

    Today, Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson (pictured) defended her indictment of pro-life advocate David Daleiden despite the fact that a Planned Parenthood abortion business board members works as a prosecutor in her office. Now, new information has come to light that Anderson’s campaign received more than $25,000 from the attorney who works for a late-term abortionist. As LifeNews reported Monday, a Texas grand jury has ignored the videos exposing a Houston-based Planned Parenthood abortion clinic caught selling aborted baby body parts and has instead indicted the man behind producing the expose’ videos. The Texas grand jury indicted David Daleiden...

    The Houston prosecutor whose grand jury indicted two pro-life activists behind the Planned Parenthood sting but cleared the group of wrongdoing is closely connected to the lawyer for a late-term abortionist she failed to prosecute. Chip Lewis, the attorney for Douglas Karpen, did spin control for Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson after she came under fire for letting his doctor client off the hook. He also contributed $25,000 to her election campaign the following year. Lewis has even suggested that the outcome for his client could explain why the grand jury indicted Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden,...

    A scientific researcher who has been studying the Zika virus and its possible link to brain abnormalities in babies says legalized abortion hindered his research. The mosquito-borne virus, a growing concern in South America, is believed to be linked to microcephaly, a neurological disorder where a baby’s head is significantly smaller and the brain is abnormally developed, according to the Mayo Clinic. The condition is not typically fatal, but it can cause health problems throughout the baby’s life. The World Health Organization reports that the relationship between the virus and microcephaly has not been confirmed yet but is highly suspected....

Cain stated in a news conference held in front of the Houston Planned Parenthood office that the documents “appear to throw water on Planned Parenthood’s claim that they do not profit from the sale of fetal tissue, but only make enough to cover their costs.” These...

    When the Supreme Court reviews the Texas abortion case, Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt (formerly Cole), abortion providers’ deadly game will have prompted a discussion about what is more important: “access” to the current back alley of abortion now offered by an industry that puts profits over people, or commonsense health and safety standards the Court has historically supported. The stakes are high—life and death—and encompass more than whether the Texas provisions in House Bill (HB) 2 are constitutional. To be sure, the law Texas passed in 2013—requiring abortion clinics to meet commonsense health and safety standards and requiring abortion...

Sandra Susan Merritt, of San Jose, Calif., appeared in court Wednesday morning on charges of tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony which carried a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison. A grand jury convened to investigate whether a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic had sold the organs of aborted fetuses last week cleared the clinic and instead indicted the undercover videographers behind the allegations....

Evans and her husband contend they were concerned about cystic fibrosis going into the pregnancy and planned to abort if a blood test showed the disease, and because they did not they now face $300,000 yearly medical bills for her. In response, the defendants claim that Evans only discussed Down Syndrome with...

    The Center for Disease Control says that more than 3 million US women are at risk of exposing their developing baby to alcohol in a new study released yesterday. The CDC recommends women that are not on birth control stop drinking alcohol so they don't accidentally expose their child to alcohol. According to the CDC about half of all US Pregnancies are planned, and most women do not know they are pregnant until they are 4-6 weeks into the pregnancy. While, 3 in 4 women who want to get pregnant as soon as possible report drinking alcohol. This can cause...

The Zika virus scare is the tool du jour. In an interview on NPR’s “All Things Considered” published on January 30, 2016, reporter Lourdes Garcia-Navarro interviewed staff of a fertility clinic and abortion activists who decried the slowing down of in vitro fertilizations as women were afraid to become pregnant lest...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business wasted no time trashing pro-life Senator Ted Cruz after the Texas lawmaker won the Iowa caucus vote last night. Cruz won the Republican vote followed by Trump and pro-life Florida Senator Marco Rubio jumped up to a surprisingly close third-place finish to come in just behind Trump, nearly overtaking him as well. In a series of tweets, Planned Parenthood attacked Cruz’s pro-life views on abortion and went as far as making inane claims that Cruz doesn’t understand how birth control works: Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012, Cruz sailed to victory with the backing...

    A coalition of pro-life groups is urging Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson to drop the charges filed against two pro-life advocates, including David Daleiden, for exposing the Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies. The Texas grand jury indicted David Daleiden and another pro-life activist, Sandra Merritt, behind the videos. Instead of prosecuting Planned Parenthood for selling aborted baby parts, Daleiden was indicted for buying them. Daleiden and Merritt were charged with one felony related to tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to buying human tissue. The felony charge was in reference to...

    The US House of Representatives has voted 240-186 to override President Barack Obama’s veto of a bill to place a one-year moratorium on Planned Parenthood’s federal funding and repeal large parts of Obamacare, which also subsidizes abortion. The measure needed two-thirds support and so it failed to pass. The legislation originally passed Congress 240-181 in the House and 52 to 47 in the Senate, but Obama vetoed it, declaring that the bill “would reverse the significant progress we have made in improving health care in America” and “disproportionately impact low-income individuals.” Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), one of House’s leading proponents...

    Both sides of the abortion debate are watching to see what will happen in Texas, now that the Center for Medical Progress has been indicted for exposing Planned Parenthood’s illegal activities. Abortion advocates have been celebrating with supportive tweets, and the Daily Show even held a pep rally. Meanwhile, pro-lifers quickly pointed out the shocking conflict of interest within the prosecutor’s office, as Harris County prosecutor Lauren Reeder sits on the board of directors of the very Planned Parenthood affiliate that was under question. But not everyone falls neatly into the prescribed pro-abortion or pro-life boxes. Even abortion advocates are...

    It has been more than a year since the Obama Administration promised to investigate a California order that forces churches to fund abortions through health insurance plans. Despite the repeated urging of pro-life lawmakers and religious groups in California to act on that promise, the administration appears to be doing nothing. The troubling situation began in 2014 when the California Department of Managed Health Care reclassified abortion as a “basic health service” under the Affordable Care Act and ordered all insurance plans in the state to begin covering surgical abortions immediately. Even churches are not exempt from funding abortions. The...

The final vote was 33-5. Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, said the legislation "will give voice to those who cannot speak for themselves." The measure, which has widespread support from religious groups, now goes to Gov. Matt Bevin, who is expected to sign it into law.

    Author's Note: The debate discussed in today's column can be accessed on You Tube (see https://ww.youtube.com/watch?v=YdMqmDyOrnw&feature=youtu.be). Many who hold the pro-choice position subscribe to a postmodern worldview. They are not arguing that we can kill the unborn because a woman's right to choose trumps the right to life of the unborn. They are arguing that ambiguity on the question of when life begins supplies adequate justification for abortion on demand. The argument from ambiguity was central to former ACLU president Nadine Strossen's presentation when I debated her recently on the campus of Oregon State University (OSU). I was pleased that...

    Judicial nominees are one of the most critical ways the next president will influence the future of abortion in America, which is why Hillary Clinton’s latest comments on the campaign trail are so terrifying… At a campaign event Tuesday in Decorah, Iowa, Clinton was asked whether she would consider nominating Obama to the bench. “Wow, what a great idea.

Police arrested 34-year-old David Turner after he allegedly had his 14-year-old daughter use a squirt gun to spray tomato juice from his car onto pro-lifers standing outside a Tempe Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, the report states.

    Should people be denied choices at the end of life? It’s a loaded question: the suggestion that someone is being “denied choices” naturally gives rise to a sense of outrage and indignation. “How dare they!”But choices are not always possible, no matter how beneficent they may be; no matter how legitimate they may seem.To suggest, therefore, that people are “denied choices” is to infer that such choices are, indeed, legitimate.Some, of course, are a simple matter of choosing between one legitimate option and another. Some, but not all.Recently, I attended the funeral service for my brother’s father-in-law. An impressive, staunchly...

    A Louisiana judge sided with abortion advocates Tuesday and ruled against a state law that would ensure abortion clinics are meeting basic health and safety requirements. Baton Rouge District Judge John deGravelles blocked the law from taking effect and declared it “unconstitutional” in a Tuesday ruling, ABC News reports. DeGravelles scheduled a conference Friday to consider whether the injunction should be made permanent, according to the report. The pro-life law would protect women by ensuring that abortionists have admitting privileges at a local hospital, that informed consent protections apply to all abortions, and that facilities that perform more than five...

    Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- Gov. Matt Bevin (R) claimed Thursday that Planned Parenthood is performing illegal and unlicensed abortions in Kentucky. He spoke to reporters and photographers during an unrelated event in Louisville. "I've always been a very strongly unapologetic pro-life individual," Bevin said. "To that end, that has not changed. What I tell you is interesting, and this is just breaking news even today, is that Planned Parenthood is illegally performing abortions in Kentucky." He went on to say, "It's that brazen disregard for the law that is going to be hammered down. There is no tolerance whatsoever for...

    ...Mr. Schaffer said shortly after Planned Parenthood hired him last summer, he initiated a "dialog" with prosecutors in Harris County, which encompasses most of Houston, about the details of the case, and maintained communication throughout the investigation, which lasted two months. Schaffer said his clients volunteered documentation and invited prosecutors to question employees and tour its Houston clinic. Also critical to the investigation was the grand jury's focus, which changed course and started looking at the anti-abortion activists, Schaffer said on a conference call with reporters, adding he received that information from a prosecutor...

    FLINT, Michigan, January 28, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The mainstream media is once again showing its pro-abortion bias, going so far as to blatantly lie in its reporting. The city of Flint is in the middle of a water disaster, causing lead poisoning and other health problems. Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticized "every level of government" for the crisis, said officials should be held accountable for exposing residents to "poisoned water," and called the impact on Flint residents "heartbreaking." Cruz made good on his rhetoric, as his campaign gave out bottled water to Flint women in crisis pregnancy centers,...

    MADISON, Wisconsin, January 27, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) -- The University of Wisconsin (UW) medical school and a top pro-life legal group are at odds over whether university officials lied about using a state-based abortion clinic to gather fetal tissue and parts. In a report issued last week, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) accused several university spokespersons of misleading state legislators, media outlets, and the public about UW's use of aborted babies inside the state. “Both Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and UW-Madison publicly denied they had any arrangement to supply baby parts from women undergoing abortion to researchers conducting gruesome experiments, but...

    HOUSTON -- Lawyers for anti-abortion activists, including one who was a leading figure in the defeat of the city's anti-discrimination ordinance last year, on Wednesday called this week's indictments of Planned Parenthood critics legally flawed. They said they would ask the district attorney not to proceed with the case. (snip) Mr. Woodfill and another lawyer representing Mr. Daleiden and Ms. Merritt, Terry W. Yates, called for another grand jury to look into Planned Parenthood's actions. "We believe that this is a runaway grand jury that has acted contrary to the law," Mr. Woodfill said. "Instead of indicting the wrongdoers here,...

    **SNIP** There have also been concerns following the discovery that a prosecutor in the Harris County district attorney's Division of Criminal Family Law also serves as a director on the board of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. According to reports, Lauren Reeder told District Attorney Devon Anderson earlier this year about her work with the abortion giant in order to be "transparent." However, she also said that she didn't see a conflict of interest in the situation. "I don't think there's any conflict in my dual roles in two separate organizations," Reeder told reporters.

    I'm honored to be with you today at Faneuil Hall, where American history has been made over the course of almost 300 years. I was thinking this morning – as I wasn't shaving – that I've been speaking for Massachusetts Citizens for life for 30 years. Today, I want to talk to you about the latest threat to life – which is called assisted suicide or doctor-assisted suicide. Proponents think that hitching the word "doctor" to death-on-demand will somehow sooth skeptics. I mean, if your doctor is helping you, how bad can it be? But when a similar proposal was...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood (the nation's largest provider of abortions), wrote an opinion column noting the 43rd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion-on-demand in our nation. They claim that Republicans want to turn back the clock and take away "women's right to safe, legal abortion." "Every woman should be able to make decisions about her pregnancy," they continue, "including whether to end it, without shame, judgment, harassment, or intimidation -- and certainly without interference by politicians." As always, liberals like these two women of the left distort...

    Jan. 27, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Reading the news these days, I’m reminded of a practice used for generations by the inhabitants of the Amazonian jungles. When crossing rivers with their cattle, they would need to ensure that the razor-toothed piranhas wouldn’t detect them splashing through the water. So a weak, old, or sickly cow would be led upstream and forced into the water. As the piranhas shot in for the kill and reduced the hapless animal to glistening bones in a matter of minutes, the rest of the herd would cross the river before the piranhas were done devouring the...
