    Amid continued protests from Democrats, Republican Governor Bob McDonnell on Wednesday signed into law a controversial bill requiring Virginia women to undergo an ultrasound procedure prior to having an abortion. The bill sparked national debate this month over a provision that would have required many women to undergo transvaginal ultrasounds, which opponents decried as medically unnecessary and physically invasive. McDonnell, a conservative who opposes abortion rights, ultimately requested that mandate be stripped. The Virginia House of Delegates passed a revised version last week that allows women to "reject" a transvaginal ultrasound and instead opt for an abdominal ultrasound, which generally...
  • Australian children to be sterilized without parental consent under new eugenics law

    Natural ^ | 8 MAR 2012 | Ethan A Huff staff writer
    The Government of Western Australia's Mental Health Commission (WAMHC) has basically conjured up a proposal for new mental health legislation that bypasses parental involvement in the mental health treatment process, and instead tasks children under age 18, and of any age, with making the decision about whether or not to be sterilized, or whether or not to have their brain tissue destroyed with psychosurgery procedures. If a "mental health professional" can convince children that they need such treatments for their own good, in other words, than Australia's youngest members of society will be open game for the eugenicist agenda....
  • RomneyCare Now Funding FREE Abortions

    03/08/2012 3:13:47 AM PST · by EternalVigilance · 16 replies · 1+ views ^ | March 8, 2012 | Amy Contrada
    RomneyCare now offers free elective surgical abortions. Mitt Romney was the enabler. This is how his government-dictated health plan is playing out. And he’s still proud of it. When he does touch on defects in his health plan, he never mentions abortion coverage as a problem. He’s either fine with it, or realizes he has to downplay it to get the conservative vote. When the law was first implemented, there was a $50 copay for a RomneyCare elective surgical abortion. Now RomneyCare abortions are "free" for a $0 copay (or $50-$100 in some plans). In fact, the $0 copay shows up as...
  • Ethicists Ask: Why Should the Baby Live?

    03/07/2012 8:32:34 PM PST · by Morgana · 28 replies
    Its commonly understood that having a baby is the way to bring new life into the world. And typically, a life should live, right? Normal people dont usually go around asking, Why should that person live? Usually, the question would be, Why should they die? But, in a strangeand horrifyingturn of events, ethicists have written in the UKs BMJ Journal of Medical Ethics that some infants should be slated for death. They have written a paper entitled After-Birth Abortion: Why Should the Baby Live? Cassy Fiano has already detailed much of the information included in this outrageous paper. However, Id...
  • Parents Beware: Planned Parenthood Uses Online Chat to Deceive Youth

    Planned Parenthood now offers an online chatting service to anyone that visits their webpage, where they claim to give out factual information about STD testing, pregnancy tests, the morning-after pill, and abortion. Recently, a pro-life activist posed as a 16-year-old girl, Kayla, and asked questions about the birth control pill. Planned Parenthood tells her that the pill is safe and that there are lots of benefits to taking birth control pillsit also reduces the risk of cancer of the ovary [and] cancer of the uterus What the Planned Parenthood representative doesnt mention is that there are a lot of risks...

  • At Eight Months, My Doctor Said He Would Absolutely Perform the Abortion for Me

    When you walk into Nicole and Stevens house, you get the sense that they are parents who thoroughly enjoy their three kids. Youll find Steven running down the narrow hallway while all the kids scream in delight, chasing each other and him. Nicole patiently fixes healthy meals for them while explaining to the youngest that she cant climb up on the counter to help because the crockpot is just too hot for little hands. Youll see Titus, their only son proudly popping wheelies in his special wheelchair while the family cheers. They are a family who seems to enjoy the...
  • A Berkley Professor Wonders Why More Americans Dont Accept Abortion

    Implicit in most pro-abortion commentary is a certain level of frustration that there remain people who disagree with them. Its the 21st century and the Supreme Court has spoken; cant you anti-choice yahoos get with the program? This leads to all sorts of outlandish speculation about what really makes pro-lifers tick. Yesterday, UC Berkley sociology professor Claude Fischer published his thoughts on the abortion puzzle, attempting to figure out why Americans are growing notably more laissez-faire on most sexual issues, but not abortion: Before the Roe v. Wade decision on behalf of abortion rights perhaps 25% to 30% of Americans...

    ROME, Italy, March 7, 2012 ( Hackers claiming ties to the high profile group Anonymous are taking credit after the Vatican website went down Wednesday, claiming they are going after the corrupt Catholic Church over the clergy sex abuse scandal as well as its stances against abortion and contraception. Anonymous decided today to besiege your site in response to the doctrine, to the liturgies, to the absurd and anachronistic concepts that your for-profit organization spreads around the world, the hackers wrote in Italian. This attack is not against the Christian religion or the faithful around the world but against...
  • U.S. Out of my uterus! But first: buy me stuff for my uterus!

    March 7, 2012 ( - I worry about my health a lot. Not because Im unhealthy, but because Im a hypochondriac. I dont imagine symptoms, but when I do have symptoms, I became immediately and irrevocably convinced that they are cancer. Thanks, WebMD! Most recently, back in October, I found a tiny red welt on my right breast. WebMD told me that I almost definitely had inflammatory breast cancera particularly aggressive strain. I called my boyfriend in the middle of the night and made him talk to me until the sun came up, so scared I was shaking all over....
  • Georgetown student to Sandra Fluke: Have some self-respect

    Sandra, I hope you take to heart our schools motto of Cura Personalis care of the whole person. You are so much more than your reproductive organs. Please, have some self-respect and take responsibility for your choices instead of having to beg the government for help. The government should not be able to force a religious institution like the one we attend to pay for the things they dont believe in. That is pretty clear in the first amendment. But since you missed the ten commandments I cant expect you to read the Bill of Rights either....
  • The Left's War on Babies

    In the wake of the Obama administration dictate that private insurance companies cover contraceptives and abortifacients, supporters have defined anyone who would oppose this mandate as waging a "war against women." Obviously, no opponent of this policy is actually bombing, shooting or stabbing women to death. The same cannot be said for what the cultural left favors -- a war against babies. The latest front of "advanced" leftist medical ethics has emerged from the experts at Oxford University. They don't just favor abortion, even partial-birth abortion. They favor "after-birth abortion." It is stomach-turning stuff. Killing babies is no different...
  • Life Fest Film Festival To Be Held in Hollywood

    Once again Hollywood will host a unique Film Festival in May 2012. It is not any ordinary film festival. You probably wont see Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie. Its the 2012 Life Fest Film Festival, which will be held in Los Angeles next summer. Life Fest will feature films that reinforce the intrinsic worth of innocent human life, and the profound significance of each life. This aspect of human dignity is rarely seen in films of our current culture. How nice to know that there are people out there who want to convey the message that...

    Computers, television, filmmoving images flickering across screens in hundreds of millions of homes across the U.S. are changing the world around us. Far more many people under thirty are likely to have seen the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe or The Lord of the Rings than to have read either of the books. As our society develops a greater thirst for all things visual, what comes out of Hollywood matters more and more. The great news is that films that would have been passed over thirty or even twenty years ago because the message was too pro-life or...
  • Environmentalists claim contraception, Agenda 21 will end global warming

    WASHINGTON, D.C., March 6, 2012, ( President Barack Obama and Kathleen Sebelius claim contraceptives can lower health care costs, influential environmentalist activists say birth control may save the world from the scourge of global warming. At a think tank conference last week, activists promoted Agenda 21 and United Nations climate change meetings, claiming that promotion of lower fertility rates trumps almost anything else and that the average 14-year-old girl needs to know how to have sex for her pleasure. The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars held the hearing, Womens Health: Key to Climate Adaptation Strategies last Tuesday. Participants asked,...
  • Plano Police Officer Steven Sanders, Badge #1439, harasses pro-life activists

    As I wrote a couple weeks ago, pro-life activist Todd Bullis recently relocated from California to Texas. Recall Todd launched The Church Project while in California, showing graphic images of aborted babies on Sunday mornings in front of churches professing to be pro-life but bearing no fruit. To say the least, Todd had interesting experiences at those churches from being hosed by an off-duty police officer congregant at one church to having signs flipped over by a congregant at another. Todd plans to continue his project in Plano. This past Saturday Todd and his son decided to test the...
