    On August 28, 2012 the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced the launch of a $150,000 television ad campaign across Missouri highlighting President Obama's extreme record on abortion and featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden. Missouri has recently been at the center of the conversation on abortion. "In light of the recent national discussion over abortion, it's important Americans know the President's best-kept secret: his extreme record on abortion. Melissa Ohden's powerful story draws a stark contrast to his unbending support of abortion and the abortion industry and reveals the human face to this debate." said SBA List President Marjorie...

    Does Paul Ryan Want to Take Medicare Away From Seniors? PoliticsSeptember 5th, 2012 Dr. Tracy C. Miller A year ago, opponents attacked Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), claiming that his plan to reform Medicare would kill grandma by taking away her benefits. Mitt Romney, who, of course, has chosen Ryan as his running mate, is proposing similar changes to Medicare. Does Ryan want to gut Medicare? To the contrary, Ryan’s intention is to save Medicare. The problem, however, is that Ryan’s proposal, although a step in the right direction, does not go far enough. More drastic measures need to be taken...
  • Higher Death Rates After Abortion Found in U.S., Finland, and Denmark

    Large Record Linkage Studies Show Women More Likely to Die After Abortion, Not Childbirth * A new study of the medical records for nearly half a million women in Denmark reveals significantly higher maternal death rates following abortion compared to delivery. This finding has confirmed similar large-scale population studies conducted in Finland and the United States, but contradicts the widely held belief that abortion is safer than childbirth. By linking records from Denmark’s fertility and abortion registries to death registry records, the researchers examined death rates following the first pregnancy outcome for all women of reproductive age in Denmark over...

But the case is not closed.Confusion reigns. Doctors opposed to physician-assisted suicide are sometimes labelled as paternalistic, disrespectful of patients’ autonomy and blind to certain aspects of human dignity.

The Strasbourg-based court said that Italy’s prohibition of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) was “incoherent” in the face of existing laws allowing abortion for eugenic purposes. It awarded a couple who had chosen to abort their child, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, 15,000 Euros. Italian commentators have pointed out that the court’s ruling shows a predisposition to accept eugenic abortion...

The publication’s latest installment on the topic is a review of “Adam and Eve and the Pill,” by Catholic writer Mary Eberstadt, which defends her thesis that contraception, and particularly the contraceptive pill, is the “Pandora’s box” of the sexual revolution. “As Eberstadt sees it, the contraceptive pill has launched us into a...

Noting that “the emotional impact of rape often clouds a legitimate and truthful discussion,” Dr. Hilgers said that a study of rape victims in Nebraska found that only 1.6% became pregnant, whereas a random sample would have found 2-4% of all women pregnant after an act of intercourse. He concluded that “complex mechanisms of human...

Whether a baby is conceived in the terrible circumstance of rape or in the happy circumstance of a loving spousal embrace, the fact remains that both are human beings. Both, if given a chance, will flourish by being loved,...

Toward the end of his speech, he said, "So tonight, let us ask ourselves—if our children should live to see the next century . . . what change will they see? What progress will we have made?" Within sight of Grant Park, on July 20, 2012, Tonya Reaves, 24, entered a Planned Parenthood Clinic on Michigan Avenue. She underwent a "dilation and extraction" (D & E) abortion. Afterwards, she started bleeding. She bled at Planned Parenthood for five and...

    RALEIGH, North Carolina, August 23, 2012 ( - GOP vice presidential contender Paul Ryan said that he has no plans to keep hounding embattled Missouri Congressman Todd Akin to drop out of the Senate race over his “legitimate rape” remarks now that the lawmaker has said he has does not plan to withdraw. Ryan acknowledged that he had at first urged Akin to give up the race, but on his campaign plane Wednesday he told reporters that he wouldn’t pursue the question, and that he had no regrets co-sponsoring pro-life legislation with Akin to tighten federal restrictions on abortion funding....

    Asked specifically if he supports "late term" -- second and third trimester -- abortions, Obama affirms that he is "pro-choice." In other words, yes, if a woman decides to end the life of her child in the ninth month of pregnancy, that should be her "choice." He has also voted against bans on a horrifyingly grisly procedure known as "partial birth abortion." These positions put Obama significantly out of step with prevailing opinion. When he was running for president in 2008, Obama told a Planned Parenthood audience that one of his first acts in office would be to sign the...

    That President Barack Obama was the only member of the Illinois legislature to not support a bill to provide medical care for newborns who survived failed late-term abortions is one of the key reasons pro-life voters will never support him.Now, Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack has uncovered new audio of Obama, as a state legislator in Illinois in 2003, defending his position. Obama essentially argues that there is no need for the law because he trusts abortion practitioners to provide medical care for the baby they unsuccessfully tried to kill in an abortion.The transcript of the video McCormack unearthed follows:OBAMA:...

    Want to know why the Republican Party is in such trouble? I believe it comes down to one word: courage. When Democrats misspeak, we make them vice president. When Republicans misspeak, Republicans are the first in line to throw them under the bus. When Rep. Todd Akin stood for protecting all innocent human life in a recent interview, he used a word with more than one meaning. He used the word “legitimate” before the word “rape” to mean “real,” “forcible,” a tragic event that “really took place.” ....... But because “legitimate” could also modify the word rape, some in the...

    The criticisms of the recent absurd comments by Missouri Republican Congressman Todd Akin, who at this writing is his party’s nominee to take on incumbent Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in November in a contest he had been expected to win, have focused on his clearly erroneous understanding of the human female anatomy. In a now infamous statement, in which he used the bizarre and unheard-of phrase “legitimate rape,” the congressman gave the impression that some rapes of women are not mentally or seriously resisted. This is an antediluvian and misogynistic myth for which there is no basis in fact...

    Rebecca Kiessling, a pro-life attorney from Michigan, fully understands the national debate going on concerning the controversial comments Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin made about abortion and rape. Kiessling was conceived when her mother was victimized by a rapist.“It seems to me, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, if it’s a legitimate rape, that’s really rare. The female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” Akin said. “The punishment ought to be on the rapist, and not in attacking the child.”Kiessling responded to the comments saying that the use of the term “legitimate...

    A former abortion worker whose conversion to the pro-life movement helped many in the abortion industry leave their deadly practice died Monday August 20. Before her 1989 conversion, Joan Appleton worked as the head nurse at Commonwealth Women’s Clinic in Washington, D.C., and was an active member of the radically pro-abortion National Organization for Women (NOW). In a testimony about her conversion, Appleton described witnessing an ultrasound guided abortion and how the experience was instrumental in changing her mind on the issue. “I handled the ultrasound while the doctor performed the procedure and I directed him while I was watching...

    First, I'm a woman. (Seems to be an important qualification if one is to be allowed to have an opinion on "womens' bodies.")I'm used to being attacked by the harridans of the Left, who claim that if you're a pro-life, then you're NOT A WOMAN.But I'm not used to hearing conservatives knee-jerk to the idea that something is "idiotic" just because it's politically incorrect ... according to those same rabid harridans of the Left.I think, like Akin did, that a woman's endocrine system CAN sometimes "shut down" the process of conception, or implantation, as a result of traumatic stress suffered...
