    FULL TITLE: Democrats in Congress Urged to Be 'Bold' Like Republicans With God Talk; Assert Christian Faith Supports Gov't Funding for Planned Parenthood, Welfare WASHINGTON — The progressive, New York-based Union Theological Seminary hosted the first-ever Congressional Faith Orientation on Capitol Hill, Tuesday, which was attended by five Democratic Congress members who addressed the role religion and faith play in determining how they vote on public policies. While it is a widely-held notion that the Republican Party is more beholden to faith and religion when it comes to integrating them in federal public policy decisions, the Democratic panel members discussed...

    Four years after an aggressive legislative effort to keep Planned Parenthood from receiving state dollars for health care for low-income women, the Texas Senate is back at it — this time over funding for breast and cervical cancer screenings. The proposed Senate budget would change how funding is distributed from the joint federal-state Breast and Cervical Cancer Services program, which provides cancer screenings for uninsured women. The revised system would prioritize funding to state, county and community health clinics, followed by “non-public entities” that provide screenings as part of “comprehensive” primary and preventative care. Clinics like Planned Parenthood, which specialize...

    A University of South Florida professor has declared that the practice of using imaging technology to show a fetus in a mother’s womb is rape. The professor, Diane Price Herndl, made the proclamation at a pro-abortion rally event on Saturday in Tampa, Campus Reform reports. Herndl, the chairwoman of the women’s and gender studies department at USF, was the headline speaker at the event, which was called “Roe on the Rocks: Celebrate Choices.” “We require in various states to do trans-vaginal ultrasounds before abortion, which by every state law, the involuntary introduction of an object into a woman’s vagina is...

    Legislators in North Carolina did the right thing in July 2013 when they voted to raise the quality standards for abortion clinics in the state. The hand-wringing response from the abortion industry was entirely predictable, with Planned Parenthood’s vice president for public affairs, Melissa Reed, calling it “the most restrictive access to safe and legal abortions this state has ever seen.” That was then.

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas House committee has approved a proposal that would require a doctor to be present when women take abortion-inducing medication. The Public Health, Welfare, and Labor committee Thursday voted to send the bill to the House. It would prevent any instance of the medication being administered through telemedicine and require that doctors attempt to schedule a follow-up visit.

    K Kaufmann wrote a book called The Abortion Resource Handbook, which is meant to guide women through their abortion decisions. It is aimed specifically toward women considering abortion. To put it mildly, the book takes a pro-choice position. In one passage, the author encourages teens not to tell their parents: However sad or angry you feel right now, keep in mind that not involving a parent is often a sign of maturity – that you are able to make and take responsibility for your own decisions. Keeping the pregnancy and abortion a secret may even turn out to be a...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - Niles-area Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan said in an interview Wednesday that his announcement that he now supports abortion rights was motivated by dealing with his wife's pregnancy last year, not politics. The thinking behind a column he authored in Tuesday's Akron Beacon Journal to announce his abortion switch "crystallized over the course of our own kid being born and going through that process," said Ryan, whose son, Brady, was born in June. The column explained that Ryan considered himself to be "pro-life" after being raised Catholic, but 14 years in political office gave him "a deeper understanding...

Rutherford has been Jacksonville’s sheriff since 2003, but he’s term limited and will leave the Sheriff’s Office this summer — the place he’s worked starting in 1974. It’s a realization that’s just starting to hit home, he said. Especially as Thursday night was the last time he said he...

    JEFFERSON CITY — Some Missouri Republican lawmakers outlined proposals Tuesday to strengthen parental notification requirements for minors seeking abortions, as they sought to expand upon a new law tripling the state's abortion waiting period. Supporters of abortion rights said the bills heard by a House committee could make it more difficult for minors to get abortions and potentially put them at risk of harm from parents who disagree with their decision. Last year, Missouri lawmakers overrode Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of a mandatory 72-hour waiting period before abortions. Tuesday's hearings were the first on the topic this year, as...

In this case there was another headline almost as good: “Planned Parenthood now has fewer abortion clinics than the year Roe was decided.” And a third headline, not so good: “Planned Parenthood now operates over 45% of all U.S. abortion clinics.” American Life League has just issued its “2014 report on Planned Parenthood facilities in the United States,” with some interesting finds: In its annual report, Planned Parenthood said it committed 327,653 abortions in 2013, had a record income of $1.3 billion, and a near-record profit...

    North Dakota United is a group formed by the state’s two largest unions: The teachers and the public workers. The group claims to represent over 11,000 people, and describes itself on its website as a “professional organization.” You’d think, from the way they describe themselves, that they mostly concern themselves with professional development and advocacy on issues of importance to government employees. Which is all well and good. That’s exactly what you would expect from an organization like that. What you might not expect is the group meeting in “solidarity” with advocacy groups pushing positions far outside the scope of...

    Raleigh, N.C. — Republican legislative leaders say they plan to file further legislation to regulate abortion this year, even as abortion-rights groups called on them to keep their hands off rules proposed by state regulators for North Carolina abortion clinics. "I'm sure there will be a pro-life bill this year," said House Speaker Pro Tem Paul Stam, R-Wake. The state Department of Health and Human Services last month released rules for clinics drafted under a 2013 law that proposed major changes to the state's abortion laws.

    It was a tough morning for NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia. Their Twitter timeline was just depressing. Three state senators introduced three distinct pro-abortion bills in Richmond, only to have them defeated one-by-one by the Senate Education & Health committee. The first proposed bill up for debate was SB 733, which would have repealed the mandatory ultrasound law that requires women to view an ultrasound before having an abortion. Senator Mamie Locke (D-VA 2), who introduced the legislation, tried arguing that ultrasounds are unnecessary because “women have already made their decision.” Locke’s logic is very faulty here. In reality, 78 percent of...

    People on both sides of the abortion debate had much to talk about when Republicans introduced a bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. NARAL lobbied hard against it, and though the bill easily passed the House before and is supported by a majority of Americans, Obama promised to veto it. The bill was tabled due to debate over the rape exception, which is unfortunate for apparently both pro-lifers and pro-abortion advocates alike. A new poll shows that a whopping 84% of Americans want to ban abortion after the first trimester, and that includes 7 out of...

    In the United States, one in four women are victims of domestic abuse, which is why some abortion advocates argue that women need “safe and legal abortion care.” In fact, they believe that abortion is a life-saving option because pregnancy can tether women to violent men. Tragically, a recent example of this argument appeared in the article, “I Gave Myself an Illegal Abortion after My Boyfriend Forced Me to Get Pregnant.” A woman named Kaity shared that she had an illegal abortion after her abusive boyfriend forced her to get pregnant. She writes, “Shane didn’t like to use condoms. He...

In reaction, some liberals have argued that the bill would increase taxes on small business.

The former Royal Marine said the Kirk is setting itself on a "fatal course" with a series of "unbiblical" decisions, including proposals to change religious observance rules in state schools, and criticised its divided stance on assisted suicide. It is understood Rev Andrew McMillan will become the eleventh former...

Sheryl Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood, said Right to Life of Idaho lobbyist Kerry Uhlenkott after an anti-abortion demonstration in downtown Boise on Saturday afternoon. “We’re just putting some final tweaks on the bill, and then we should be good to go for...

    Fayetteville, NC – The red light flashed with urgency on my office telephone, but I hardly gave the routine voicemail indicator a second thought – that is, until I pressed the replay button. What I heard next was a day-changer, and I knew I couldn’t rest until I did something about it. “I’m calling because I recently got an abortion at the Hallmark Clinic in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and it was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had in my life.” Her emotion-laden voice proceeded to detail her experience that seemed straight from a horror novel. I called her...

    FULL TITLE: West Virginia hospital sees many patients with abortion complications, says Doctor who supports admitting privileges for abortionists “We commonly (I personally probably at least weekly) see patients at Women’s and Children’s Hospital in our emergency room or ultrasound center with complications from abortions at the centers in Charleston: so much for “safe and legal.” These patients are told to come to our hospital because the abortion clinic providers do not have hospital privileges to care for their patients, so we must treat them as emergency “drop ins.… No other medical providers are allowed to care for patients, have...

    President Obama hailed the 42nd anniversary of 1973’s Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion at any time for any reason throughout a woman’s pregnancy. “Since 1973 over 50 million unwanted births have been prevented,” Obama pointed out. “That’s 50 million mothers spared the toils and troubles of rearing children they did not want. That’s 50 million individuals spared the indignity of being an unwanted child.” The President also took this anniversary as an opportunity to call for “continued vigilance against those who would have us backtrack on this vital human right.” Two instances of “backtracking” as the President sees it are...

    The new Republican Congress is weak and has almost no unity. What their message or agenda is changes almost daily. You would think though that Republicans could be counted on to defend the rights of the unborn. You would even like to think that Republicans could successfully present a case against infanticide. Unfortunately, the Republicans can’t even get behind a bill that would ban infanticide. House Republicans proposed a bill that would ban the abortion of babies over 20 weeks. Such a ban is popular among the general public. They even allowed for an exception for rape and incest, which...

    FULL TITLE: Clarke D Forsythe describes at length why legal abortion deaths do not make it into CDC and other statistics Clarke D Forsythe, in his excellent book Abuse of Discretion: the inside Story of Roe Versus Wade (buy the book on Amazon here) explains at length why legal abortion deaths and injuries do not make it into the published statistics. “Abortion injuries and deaths are washed out of the US public health system through a series of filters. The first filter is the clinics. Clinics do not take responsibility for injuries if they can avoid it. Standard procedure for...

    From a woman who had two abortions, one after rape: “Had I been told the truth about the risks that I was taking with my body and about the developing persons inside of me, I know that I would not have made the decision to destroy life. There are those people who can deliberately take the life of another person, but that is not my nature. Yet I must live with the truth, because that is what I have done. I still feel that I probably couldn’t have loved that child conceived of rape, but there are so many people...
