  • After Florida, the Media’s Silence on the Value of Some Lives

    02/17/2018 2:10:45 PM PST · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | February 17, 2018 | Jeffrey Lord
    Journalists are racing to target President Trump and blame the Florida shooting on guns and the NRA. So, it might be a good time to look back. President Ronald Reagan wrote an essay in the spring of 1983. He was talking about exactly what was not on display in Parkland, Florida in the heart and soul of shooter Nikolas Cruz- the value of, and the respect for, human life. And in the aftermath of the school shooting that left seventeen dead? The nation’s media was also determined - one might say determined to the point of obsession to place blame.  Let’s...
  • This Law Will Save Newborns After Botched Abortions From Murder. Here’s Why It Matters

    The majority of debate between pro-lifers and abortion advocates has centered around the 20-week abortion ban that failed in the Senate Monday. Another important bill, however, recently passed the U.S. House and would prevent babies who’ve been born after botched abortions from being murdered shortly thereafter. The U.S. House approved the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in January, and it requires health care practitioners to give the same care to a child born alive after a botched abortion as they would provide to any other child birthed at the same gestational age. They must also ensure that babies born after...
  • President Donald J. Trump Proclaims January 22, 2018, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day

    Today, we focus our attention on the love and protection each person, born and unborn, deserves regardless of disability, gender, appearance, or ethnicity. Much of the greatest suffering in our Nation’s history — and, indeed, our planet’s history — has been the result of disgracefully misguided attempts to dehumanize whole classes of people based on these immutable characteristics. We cannot let this shameful history repeat itself in new forms, and we must be particularly vigilant to safeguard the most vulnerable lives among us. This is why we observe National Sanctity of Human Life Day: to affirm the truth that...
  • Sofia Vergara, Frozen Embryos and Forced Procreation

    The Supreme Court of Colorado will soon rule on whether a person has a constitutional right to not procreate. The dispute is between Drake Rooks and his ex-wife, Mandy Rooks. The couple were married in 2002. They had three children using in vitro fertilization, but were left with six frozen embryos. In 2014, they divorced. Now they are embroiled in a legal battle over what should become of those "snow babies." Mandy, 40, who reportedly always dreamed of having a large family, would like to use some or all of them to have more children. Drake, 50, says absolutely not....
  • 1 A.T. (After Trump): The Culture

    In a previous article, I showed that Donald Trump’s first year as President has been marked by a series of exceptional economic achievements. Yet it isn’t only with respect to the economy that our 45th President deserves much gratitude from self-proclaimed patriots, traditional garden-variety Americans who’ve expressed abhorrence of the country’s lurch toward radical leftism. Trump has rescinded, through Executive Order, the obscene Obamacare contraceptive mandate, which forced private employers to provide contraceptive and abortion services through the health insurance plans they offered their employees. In his very first week in office, the President also eradicated $9 billion in foreign...
  • SHOCKING! College Student Argues in Favor of Killing Newborn Babies

    From the University of Tennessee-Knoxville comes word of a shocking video of a student arguing in favor of infanticide — killing babies up to two-years-old. The video was filmed by Students for Life of America on the campus of Tennessee’s flagship taxpayer-funded university. “The idea that someone could support infanticide is incredibly disturbing. Yet, it reflects the kinds of attitudes our staff members and students can face on a daily basis on high school and college campuses,” Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins said. Brenna Lewis, SLA’s Appalachian regional coordinator, recorded one of the encounters in early December...
  • Planned Parenthood enters transgender-hormone market as abortions decline, clinics close

    As dozens of its clinics closed amid a dwindling U.S. abortion rate, Planned Parenthood has moved to diversify its business model by getting into transgender hormone therapy. The 2016-17 Planned Parenthood annual report showed the nation’s largest abortion provider struggling to keep its doors open as fewer women undergo abortions and patients seek health care services elsewhere. In response, “We’re expanding access to care — from pioneering research on self-injectable birth control to offering new services for our transgender patients,” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said in the report’s introductory message. “Planned Parenthood has focused on expanding services to people...
  • GOP President and Congress Still Funding Planned Parenthood

    Two months before his upset victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump made an unambiguous commitment that helped rally pro-life Americans to his cause. He promised to defund Planned Parenthood. Now, almost a year into his presidency -- during which time the Republican Party has controlled both houses of Congress -- he has not delivered on that promise. "I am committed to: Defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions, and re-allocating their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care for women," Trump wrote in a September 2016 letter to...
  • Pope Francis Prays for End to Abortion on Feast of ‘Holy Innocents

    On the day when Christians commemorate the massacre of the ‘holy innocents’ by King Herod, Pope Francis prayed for “all the children who are not allowed to be born,” in reference to the millions of victims of abortion. In his daily posting on Twitter, the Pope also offered prayers for all the children “who cry with hunger,” or “who hold weapons in their hands instead of toys”: This is not the first time Pope Francis has likened the systematic slaughter of unborn children through abortion with the massacre wrought by King Herod some 2,000 years ago, in an effort to...

    A young computer engineer is embarking on a tour of Ireland in 2018 to convince voters to support changes to the abortion law, as the country prepares for a referendum on repealing its ban on the procedure in almost all circumstances. Caoimhe Anglin’s journey through every Irish county pitches her into the heart of a battle between secularism and traditional Catholicism. We can topple Ireland’s ludicrous abortion law, but it’s not a done deal Emer O'Toole Read more Anglin hopes that by relaying her story of being forced to leave home to have a termination in England in 2016, she...

    Planned Parenthood marked the Christmas season Friday by mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s opposition to their organization with a list of “gift ideas” and soliciting donations in a tweet. “Want to make it a holiday season Mike Pence will never forget?” they ask. “Consider donating to Planned Parenthood ‘in honor’ of the vice president — or check out some of our other ‘gift’ ideas.” The nation’s largest abortion provider listed nine gift ideas for Pence including tickets to the Broadway show Hamilton where the cast booed him last November, condoms, and, of course, donations to Planned Parenthood. “Last November,” they...
  • Gov. Kasich Signs Law Banning Down Syndrome Abortions

    Ohio Governor and former 2016 GOP presidential candidate John Kasich signed a pro-life bill on Friday December 22 that bans the abortion of babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome, reports Lifesite News.. The bill is officially known as the Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act. It passed the Ohio Senate by a vote of 20-12 and the Ohio House 63-30 in November. The bill bans abortions after prenatal tests show the baby is more likely than not to have Down Syndrome. Any individual who commits an abortion under these conditions would face a fourth-degree felony. Doctors could potentially lose their license. A key...

    PARKER, Colorado — The empty retail space next to a Discount Liquors and Smoker Friendly used to house a Planned Parenthood, but no more. The Planned Parenthood Express Clinic in Parker, Colorado, is one of the 32 Planned Parenthood centers that shut down this year, according to a study released this month by the pro-life American Life League. Jim Sedlak, executive director of the American Life League, said there is “mounting evidence of Planned Parenthood’s decline” and “renewed optimism that the end of the organization may happen sooner than our most optimistic estimates just two years ago.” “The evidence is...

    The Trump administration must allow two illegal immigrants access to abortions, according to a U.S. district judge’s ruling on Monday. The order was placed on hold by Judge Tanya Chutkan to allow the Justice Department to appeal the ruling. In response, the Justice Department filed a notice of appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The ruling is the latest development after a 17-year-old girl, who was in the U.S. illegally, petitioned the court to allow her to receive an abortion in October. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit decided...

    A federal judge in Pennsylvania temporarily blocked the Trump administration's recent rules allowing moral and religious exceptions for ObamaCare's birth control requirement. The injunction comes after state Attorney General Josh Shapiro filed a lawsuit against the administration, arguing the changes to the mandate undermine women's health. Judge Wendy Beetlestone ruled that the state is "likely to suffer serious and irreparable harm in the absence of a preliminary injunction." ObamaCare requires that most companies cover birth control as preventive care for women at no additional cost. The Trump administration rolled back the requirement earlier this year, arguing that it infringed on...

    Two companies in California that procured and sold aborted baby body parts that they bought from abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, reached a $7.8 million settlement after they were caught illegally profiting off of these body parts. The investigation and fines happened because of the undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress, which shook the nation in the summer of 2015. Now, two years after those videos and nearly a year after committees in both houses of Congress recommended Planned Parenthood and their business partners for criminal investigation, the FBI has confirmed they are investigating the abortion giant. It’s...

    David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) announced Wednesday that they are filing a new motion in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to request the removal of Judge William Orrick in the lawsuit brought against them by Planned Parenthood, pointing to his ties to Planned Parenthood. According to Daleiden’s petition, Judge Orrick has "an ongoing and longstanding professional relationship with one of the named Plaintiffs.” Orrick is a founder and officer of the Good Samaritan Family Resource Center (GSFRC), an organization that partners with Planned Parenthood and had a Planned Parenthood clinic incorporated on its premises while...

    The Washington Post has done a surprising service by inadvertently revealing the damage having an abortion did to a woman who chose it. Grace, profiled in the story, “The long five minutes: Abortion doulas bring comfort during a complicated time” is not just a doula, but also an abortion survivor. As such she has my compassion and understanding. #Metoo. It took me decades to work through the grief and guilt of child loss through abortion. My pain was complicated greatly by being told it was not, in fact, a child by the people who sold that abortion to me. Can...

    Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards urged women to keep bragging about aborting their unborn babies to fight the Trump administration’s pro-life policies. In a new interview with Democracy Now, Richards complained that the Trump administration is trying to protect unborn babies from abortion. She blasted his choices of Mike Pence and other strong pro-life advocates for top-level positions. One of the things that Richards believes will make a difference is women who are willing to speak out proudly about their abortions.

    Although Planned Parenthood has not endorsed a candidate in the Alabama U.S. Senate race, they clearly have an ongoing interest in dissuading the Democratic Party from nominating pro-life candidates – even in conservative states. Planned Parenthood recently commissioned a poll of Alabama voters and spun the results to argue that abortion is an unimportant issue in the ongoing U.S. Senate race. This poll has been picked up by a number of media outlets including The Huffington Post, Breitbart, and The poll does contain some interesting information. It was conducted in early November – prior to reporting of the sexual...
