  • Cecile Richards Repeats Pro-Abortion Myths

    06/17/2018 8:13:27 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | June 17, 2018 | Bradley Matters
    Cecile Richards’s editorial in the June 13th Los Angeles Times is indicative of the inaccuracies propagated by Planned Parenthood, the organization she led for 12 years.Richards is dismayed with what she calls Arkansas’s effort to “ban medication abortion.” It was no ban. Participants in the abortion industry are free to prescribe the chemical abortion pills provided they have a basic safety standard in place for women – that is, a contract with another physician who can facilitate an emergency hospital treatment should the need arise. And it does.Richards called chemical abortion “safer than Tylenol and Viagra” and railed against state legislators in...
  • Court reinstates California law allowing terminally ill people to end their lives

    A state appeals court has reinstated -- at least for now -- California's law allowing terminally ill people to end their lives. The Fourth District Court of Appeals in Riverside issued an immediate stay Friday putting the End of Life Option back into effect. The court also gave opponents of its decision until July 2 to file objections. The law allows adults to obtain a prescription for life-ending drugs if a doctor has determined that they have six months or less to live. Riverside County Superior Court Judge Daniel Ottolia declared the law unconstitutional last month, stating that it had...

    The Irish referendumin which 66% of voters chose to allow parliament to legalize abortionunderscored the decadeslong decline of the Catholic church as a political force in that nation. It also accentuated a mirror image in Poland, the last major nation in Europe whose Catholic Church still dominates politics, society, and culture. Poland was once among the easiest places in Europe to get access to an abortion. Under Communism, ferries brought pregnant women from Sweden and Denmark for the procedure, which was free of charge. That changed at the end of the Cold War, when the Catholic church emerged as a...

    SYDNEY, June 11, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) Minister for Women Tanya Davies was one of just eighteen members of the New South Wales Parliament to vote against a measure restricting pro-life witness in the vicinity of abortion facilities in a contentious overnight vote last week. The bill passed with 61 votes in favor around 1:20 AM Friday morning, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reports, after several hours of debate. It makes it a crime punishable by jail time to film people entering or exiting abortion facilities, or engage in conduct the law deems harassment or intimidation, within 150 meters of an abortion...

    June 5, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) Using contraception is an intrinsic evil in all circumstances because it cuts off one of the goals of marriage which is an openness to life, Kansas City Archbishop Joseph Naumann told LifeSiteNews. Any question on this issue lies on the level of moral culpability for those who do use it, he added. Circumstances can affect the culpability, [but] it doesn't affect the rightness or wrongness of the act, he said. Speaking exclusively with LifeSiteNews, the incoming chair for the U.S. Bishops pro-life committee said further that following the Churchs teaching on contraception is an attainable...

    he Australian state of New South Wales recently passed legislation banning pro-life protesters from coming within 150 meters of abortion clinics (almost 500 feet). The legislation passed with a vote of 61 to 18. The law even makes it a crime to attempt a communication that relates to abortions, by any means. Legislators overwhelming support is surprising given these draconian provisions, which the Sydney Morning Herald described as the creation of a broad communication offense. The penalties under the law are significant with the first offense carrying a penalty of up to six months in jail, and up to 12...

    The abortion-on-demand crowd is slowly losing the argument, and theyre tossing up every nonsensical argument they can think of in the hope that something will work. On June 11, Alternate posted an article by Planned Parenthood-honored psychologist Valerie Tarico. In an article titled What the Unborn and the Undead Have in Common, Tarico explored the so called similarities between zombies and unborn babies in an attempt to brand the pro-life argument as magical. Taricos central argument was that personhood is based on thought, so In the beginning stages of gestation, a human embryo or fetus has no more qualities...

    The latest episode of Hulus The Handmaids Tale comes up with a new way to twist the words of the Bible into their own depraved interpretation.

    Live Action has recently released a powerful docuseries demonstrating Planned Parenthoods decades long complicity in the cover-up of sexual abuse. An investigative report has also been released, detailing some of the horrific cases covered up by Planned Parenthood, which receives millions in taxpayer dollars annually, including Title X funds. It also reiterates how abortion enables sexual abusers by aiding them in the ability to cover their crimes. The report, Aiding Abusers, Planned Parenthoods cover-up of child sexual abuse, (which can be read here) adds to the mounting evidence of Planned Parenthoods history and corporate culture of failing to report incidents...
  • The Irish Abortion Referendum: But How?

    What Oliver Cromwell could not do, what an Gorta Mór (the Great Hunger) could not do, what hundreds of years of Anglo-Protestant persecution could not do to the Irish Catholic people — namely, rob them of their faith and morals — the one-two punch of the sexual revolution and the doctrinal-liturgical revolution in the Church have accomplished, with the more-or-less enthusiastic complicity of the Irish people themselves, clergy and laity. Joe Doyle, our 100% Irish go-to man on all questions Hibernian, has compiled a sad and sorrowful litany of this national apostasy, as well as a summary of its most recent...

    Goodness knows what Sarah Ewart must feel today. To have told publicly and repeatedly the heart-rending story of her own abortion in order to push for a change in Northern Irelands abortion laws, only to be told at the final hurdle that her partners in her campaign had no standing to support her case. That she may have won had she taken the case alone. She may well feel alone, just as so many women are when they travel from Northern Ireland to England and Wales for terminations. A technicality may seem like the worst reason to lose but todays...

    Pressure is growing on the government to reform Northern Irelands restrictive abortion laws after the supreme court concluded that they are incompatible with human rights legislation. Justices at the UKs highest court dismissed a legal challenge by a narrow majority of four to three and said they had no jurisdiction to consider the latest case because there was no actual or potential victim of an unlawful act involved in it. A majority of judges, however, went on to add that Northern Irelands abortion law was incompatible with the right to respect for private and family life as guaranteed by the...

He came into this world prematurely with severe spina bifida, Chiari II malformation, hydrocephalus, autonomic dysreflexia, central sleep apnea, dysphagia, hypotonia and paralyzed vocal cords. He would develop chronic lung disease, anemia, kyphosis, knee contractures, osteopenia and so much more. In layman's terms, he was paralyzed, except for partial movement of his arms. He couldn't speak because his vocal cords were paralyzed, nor could he eat or even breathe on his own. His own family can't remember how many times the ambulance raced him to the...

    Women arent having kids because of the president according to one motherhood clarity therapist. On May 31, The Washington Post weighed in on the child-free life and Why so many American women are deciding not to have kids. Inside the piece, columnist Petula Dvorak outlined multiple reasons, including President Trump. Dvorak centered her piece on a recent report by the National Center for Health Statistics that showed a sinking U.S. birth rate. In 2017, only 3.8 million babies were born, she wrote, which was the lowest number in three decades. There are plenty of reasons, wrote Dvorak, from the...

    ROME, Italy, June 1, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) Hungary's ever increasing support for families by the government is creating an environment where marriages and families are flourishing and abortion numbers are dropping, one of the countrys ministers advised a recent international conference on life and family. The support has caused abortion numbers to plunge by more than a third of what they were in 2010 (40,449 to 28,500). It has also caused a plunge in the number of divorces (23,873 in 2010 to 18,600 in 2017) and a surge in the number of marriages (35,520 in 2010 to 50,600 in 2017)....

    Your tax dollars arent the only thing supporting Planned Parenthood proceeds from your daily coffee may be too! By now, Starbuckss grande agenda on social issues isnt a surprise to anyone, except maybe its CEO. Yesterday, in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Kevin Johnson seemed completely oblivious to Starbuckss ongoing relationship with the abortion giant through its matching gift program. For Johnson, its been a rocky few months at the head of one of Americas biggest brands. After an embarrassing scandal in Philadelphia, when a local employee had two African Americans arrested for sitting in their...
