Callie’s bio also states that she worked as a Youth Minister and Adult Sunday School Teacher and she assists the pastor in any means necessary.

According to a pro-life activist who side walk counsels outside an abortion clinic in Montgomery, Callie Chatman works for Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic in Montgomery.

    The video shows a woman climbing a stairwell, her belly visibly pregnant, as she offers suggestions: Make sure there are no security cameras. Be careful not to look down or you might regret it. She tumbles backward as the screen goes black. 'When you reach the bottom everything will be OK,' she says. The video is one of a series of mock abortion tutorials, part of a public campaign urging Chile to allow women to end pregnancies in cases of rape or medical complications.

    A woman whose mom works at FPA abortion clinic told a pro-lifer that she believes that her mom knows Jesus. The conversation shows how watered down the Gospel of Jesus Christ which commands us to “take up our cross and follow Him daily” has become to some people who do not read it in the fear of God.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., May 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Last week saw multiple disappointments for religious organizations seeking relief from a government that hopes to impose gravely sinful behavior on them – namely, by forcing these organizations to cooperate in the dispersal of contraceptives and abortifacient drugs via health insurance plans. Two of the organizations, Priests for Life and the archdiocese of Washington, were denied relief on Wednesday from the Health and Human Services (HHS) Department's contraception mandate by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The other, Notre Dame University, received its denial from the Seventh Circuit Court...

    Republicans in the state Senate have added provisions to an abortion bill that are drawing strong criticism from a key Democrat in the Senate. The bill has already passed the House and would extend the waiting period for abortions from 24 hours to 72 hours. The purpose is to give women more time to consider the decision in the hope it will lead to fewer abortions. The proposal, House Bill 465, passed the House in a 74-45 vote last month. Now, in the Senate, a substitute bill is set for discussion on Wednesday. That substitute abortion bill now includes language...

    A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday struck down an Arkansas law that banned abortion at 12 weeks of pregnancy, upholding a lower court's decision last year that had blocked the law. The Arkansas law violates a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy at a point before the viability of the fetus, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit said. Two doctors challenged the Arkansas law, which had granted exceptions to protect the life of the mother and for pregnancy resulting from rape or incest.

    The abortion movement is generally split into two camps: Those who believe abortion is a “necessary evil,” but necessary nonetheless, and those who believe that abortion is an objective social good. For years, the abortion movement got angry when pro-lifers referred to them, quite accurately, as “pro-abortion.” Such outrage is still occasionally conjured up for the media, but for the most part, it has been abandoned in the wake of dozens of articles and blog posts by various abortion activists openly proclaiming that they think abortion is a good thing.

    After a month of negotiating the state’s two-year budget, the Texas Legislature’s new proposal cuts Planned Parenthood from its Breast and Cervical Cancer Services program. The decision by the Lone Star State would axe funding for over a dozen Planned Parenthood facilities that don’t provide abortions on-site. Planned Parenthood received $1.2 million in taxpayer dollars under the program last year. A finalized budget will be decided on before June 1. Alex Garcia-Ditta, writing for Texas Observer, gives background on the new budget proposal: In January, key budget writers state Sen. Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound) and state Sen.

    A federal appeals court on Friday struck down an Idaho law banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, ruling the law unconstitutional. The ruling comes a few weeks after the U.S. House passed legislation that would ban abortions after the same timespan, sending it to the Senate. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said Idaho's law violates Supreme Court precedent protecting abortions up to the point of viability for a fetus, which has been considered to be around 24 weeks. Courts have struck down such bans before. In 2013, the 9th Circuit also ruled an Arizona ban on abortions after...

    The vote in Ireland has been to legalise ‘same-sex marriage’, an outcome which suggests a loss of moral clarity among the majority of Catholics in the Irish Church. I am left asking the question - is the Irish Church dead? I know this may sound shocking and some may accuse me of alarmism and defeatism. However, Sacred Scripture is clear that though Our Lord has promised to be with the Universal Church until the end of time (Mt 28:20), it is possible for a local church to die. The Book of Revelation contains the locutions and visions Our Lord granted...

    (Photo: us.fotolia.com | matf16) The persecution of the Catholic Church and other morally conservative religious bodies has begun in the United States. As predicted, it isn’t—thank God—bloody persecution like the persecution of Christians in many countries. But it’s real persecution and likely to get worse. This new persecution currently has two prongs. One consists of pressuring individual religious believers to cooperate with public policies inimical to faith. The other prong is pressure targeted at religious groups and institutions to adapt their programs to the promotion of values hostile to the sponsors’ moral convictions. When and if the Supreme Court...

And even though there are literally no studies showing any benefit from abortion, they had total confidence in the social myth that abortion is the best option, even the only option, in cases of sexual assault. Even many pro-lifers approve of abortions in cases of rape. So surely it must be the best choice, right? Not in my case. It just added more layers of trauma, self-doubt, grief and...

    How many times have you heard a pro-abortion person say that abortion should be rare? The oft-repeated words, notably spoken by pro-abortion president, Bill Clinton, are “safe, legal, and rare.” Pro-abortion advocates often say this because it makes them look like moderates. But they are also acknowledging that they, like most people, feel uncomfortable about abortion. They may say that abortion should only be a last resort for women, but the policies they support, namely, abortion without any restrictions, actually encourage abortions to be more common. One response to the “safe, legal, rare” mantra is to ask the pro-choicer why...

    “The most effective way to destroy people,” George Orwell once noted, “is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” In today’s culture, knowledge of history is, itself, fast becoming history. Late-night hosts sometimes make comedic hay of this growing cultural Alzheimer’s by asking people in the street mundane questions such as “Who were our allies in World War II?” to hilariously cringe-worthy responses. But there is a distinctly unfunny side to our forgetfulness. We are very much at risk, as the old saying goes, not just of repeating history because we have forgotten it, but of repeating...

The Nola Needs Peace Coalition, a group of churches and community organizations committed to building a peaceful New Orleans without abortion, placed one of their billboards directly next to the Planned Parenthood site that is slated to open early next year. The billboard reads: “Planned Parenthood Sells Abortion And They Plan to Sell More Here.” Benjamin...

    Moscow, May 19, Interfax - Members of all State Duma factions have supported a bill allowing only state-run healthcare institutions to perform abortions and cancelling mandatory health insurance coverage for abortions. The press service of head of the State Duma committee for family, women and children Yelena Mizulina, a co-author of this bill, said that, according to the proposed document, performing abortions outside of state-run healthcare institutions should carry a fine of 50,000 rubles to 200,000 rubles for citizens, a fine of 500,000 rubles to 800,000 rubles for officials, and a fine of 500,000 rubles to 800,000 rubles for entrepreneurs...

    LifeNews has repeatedly chronicled cases of people who were prematurely declared dead or said to be in supposedly persistent vegetative states who ultimately recovered. We have also covered miraculous cases where an act of God appears to be the only reason or only answer as to why a patient has recovered. File this story under “act of God” or “answered prayers.” Taylor Hale, then 14, suffered traumatic brain injury when she fell off hood of car while horsing around with friends in 2011. She spent a week in medically induced coma to help her brain heal, but she suffered a...

    A story on Yahoo! Parenting tells of a woman who chose to have an abortion at 36 weeks, believing it was the right choice for her situation. Writer Rachel Bertsche shares the story of Kate, a 29-year-old mother outside Boston, who had a late-term abortion after she learned her daughter had a brain abnormality. Kate chose abortion even after she was offered adoption as an option. The story is heartbreaking— almost like a woman who had a miscarriage and is grieving. But despite the circumstance of a baby who suffered from a brain malformation, the truth of the matter is...

    The United Methodist Church has been a subject of controversy for years as it supports legalized abortion within the context of supposedly being a Christian denomination. Now, one pro-life advocate has uncovered a quote from a Methodist pastor who says that caring about unborn babies who die in abortions is “idolatry.” Sarah Terzo, who has a knack for documenting the history of the abortion debate and the abortion advocacy movement by posting quotes from pro-abortion activists through the years, posted a new quote today that features Minister John M Swomley. Swomley is an ordained United Methodist minister, Terzo explains and,...

    FULL TITLE: ‘Pro-Abortion Guy’ Begs Interviewer Not to Air His Responses — After Hearing Them, You May Understand Why Rebel Media’s Marissa Semkiw hit the streets during Ottawa’s “March for Life” this week and encountered a seemingly unyielding abortion supporter who argued it’s always the “woman’s choice” — even when it comes to “post-natal abortion.” The man, identified only as Alex, later reportedly sent an email to Semkiw asking that none of his responses be used in any videos or broadcasts. Rebel Media declined his request. During the interview, Semkiw explained that some pro-life advocates would like to see abortion...

    As is necessary when addressing an ultra-sensitive issue, I will make some qualifications on the front end: God is, without question, and I will declare without apology, passionately interested in blessing His children. It is fully appropriate to give a measure of attention to the wondrous process of discovery of God's abundant life, overwhelming benefits and blessings. That being said, I now must move on to offering some analysis on a hidden crises. The Spirit of Abortion ... In the Church? As a prophetic messenger, a primary driving force of my daily life is to reveal and help destroy any...

    Just in time for Mother’s Day, pregnancy help organizations nationwide are receiving encouragement from an unusual source. Pro-choice group, Glitter Bombs For Choice (GBFC) has taken credit for at least six so-called “glitter bombs” in California, eight more in Ohio, with one report of a mailing to a pregnancy center in West Virginia, according to Heartbeat International, in the past week. These “glitter bombs” are typically hand-written cards with a small, sealed packet of glitter inside. When the card is opened, the glitter packet ruptures, sending pieces flying everywhere. The mission of these special deliveries, according to GBFC’s website, is...

    There are a few things that I do not like about being a woman. One of them is being lectured by people like Frank Bruni at The New York Times about how I am oppressed by my Catholic faith. Funny, I never realized it. Bruni’s article, “Catholicism Undervalues Women,” has many of the “standing up to the patriarchy” tropes anyone would expect, with some surprises and glaring factual errors along the way. He begins by wryly mentioning Pope Francis’ statement about equal pay for women wherein, Bruni says, the pope “fashioned himself a feminist.” Bruni laughs at this, assuring his...

    A man who drove his wife to A Woman’s Choice abortion clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina has attacked a group, which refers to themselves as abolitionists against abortion, after he perceived they were accusing his wife of having an abortion. Abolitionists claim they hold to the tenants outlined by Abolish Human Abortion (AHA), and do not want to be linked in any way to the pro-life movement because they favor incremental strategies to end abortion. In the first video of the man, who drove his wife to the abortion clinic, he initially speaks with the abolitionists calmly, explaining that he...

    Washington DC (LiveActionNews) — For six years Carol Everett operated four abortion clinics in Texas. As reported by The Catholic Register, Everett earned a commission for every abortion in addition to a share of the fees charged by each clinic. She says she sold abortion and made big bucks off of the “cash cow” of abortion. A new abortion clinic, she said at the annual Rose Dinner for the National March for Life in Ottawa, would make enough money to pay for itself in a single month. caroleverettThe clinics’ system to make the quick cash was quite simple.

    I am a big believer in suicide prevention. But the movement has been derelict in struggling against blatant suicide promotion from the so-called “death with dignity” movement. Here’s another example: Suicide preventers in Washington County, Oregon are pushing for a zero suicide rate. From the Oregon story: Suicide can be prevented. That was the takeaway message at the Washington County Suicide Prevention Council’s Summit of Hope on Wednesday, May 13. “The reality is individuals don’t want to die by suicide as much as they want to end the anguish and pain they are experiencing,” said David Covington, an expert on...

    In 2006, Tressa Middleton became Britain’s youngest mother after her 16-year-old brother, Jason, raped her. She was only 11-years-old at the time but recently told the hosts of This Morning about the life-changing experience. She said, “Soon after I began noticing changes in my body. I eventually did a pregnancy test and it came up I was pregnant. I was too scared to tell my mum, so I told my aunt and then ran away. Mum was furious but she calmed down eventually.” However, Middleton didn’t tell anyone about the rape; instead, she said the pregnancy was a result of...
