    Texas is closer than ever to joining 10 other states that bar private insurance plans and those offered through the Affordable Care Act from covering abortions, except through supplemental plans. The Texas House -- over strong objections from Democrats -- gave preliminary approval to House Bill 214, which prohibits health plans from providing coverage for abortion except in the cases where the life of the mother is in danger. The House voted 95-51 to send the bill to a third and final reading. "This isn't about who can get an abortion," state Rep. John Smithee, R-Amarillo, said of his bill....

    Charlie Gard Has Happened Here Too There is a proper international uproar over UK doctors winning the right in court to unilaterally remove the infant Charlie Gard from life support. Some have commented on the case as if that is a product of the UK’s socialized medical system. It’s not. It is a product of utilitarian bioethics advocacy for the right to refuse wanted life-sustaining treatment–called “futile care”–based on the doctor’s or a hospital bioethics committee’s values on the moral worth of the ill patient’s life and/or the high cost of care Similar authoritarian care withdrawals as has been imposed on...

    Tomi Lahren and I work for the same company. I’ve been on her show a few times and I always enjoyed the conversation. I don’t really know her because I work from home up in Maryland and she’s down at headquarters in Dallas, but she seems like a nice person and I have no qualms with her personally at all. I can’t and won’t speculate as to why she went on The View this past Friday, suddenly reversed course on abortion, declared herself to be “pro-choice,” and basked in the patronizing applause from the liberal audience and the radical feminists...
  • Texas (Democrat) state rep proposes fines for masturbation (life imitates the Onion alert)

    A Texas state representative has introduced legislation that would fine men for masturbating and require them to undergo counseling before obtaining a prescription for Viagra, in an effort to highlight anti-abortion laws that place restrictions on women. The legislation introduced by state Rep. Jessica Farrar (D) would impose a $100 civil penalty for "masturbatory emissions" that take place outside of a woman's vagina or a hospital. Each incident would be "considered an act against an unborn child, and failing to preserve the sanctity of life," the bill reads.

Over the decades, they have produced thousands upon thousands of “visual aids,” from the simplest black and white one-sheeter to full-blown movies—and everything in-between. The common denominator is—to adapt a cliché—to help the public get its collective head around both the humanity we share with the unborn child and the sheer magnitude of the loss of lives since January 22, 1973.Although I scribble...
  • Abortion Science: Heartbeats Are Imaginary, Unborn Babies Aren’t Alive, And Ultrasounds (trunc)

    Forget the war on babies. The abortion industry has a new enemy: ultrasounds. In a bizarre and rambling 2,600-word feature piece published on Tuesday, The Atlantic writer Moira Weigel took a sledgehammer to basic science and then did her best to vacuum its brains out before anyone could figure out what just happened. The article’s headline is bad enough—”How the Ultrasound Pushed the Idea That a Fetus Is a Person”—but its subhed is the real work of art: “The technology has been used to create an ‘imaginary’ heartbeat and sped-up videos that falsely depict a response to stimulus.” There...

The female embryos are listed as plaintiffs “Emma’’ and “Isabella” in the Louisiana court papers, which come amid her knock-down, drag-out legal battle with former fiancé Nick Loeb, sources told The Post.

    Indiana Right to Life has discovered that $200 human brains from aborted babies were purchased by Indiana University (IU) in May 2016. Part of the reason IU opposed statewide abortion restrictions and sued the state of Indiana was because IU wanted to continue its purchases of aborted baby body parts. Back then, IU said that a new Indiana abortion law would hinder necessary medical research. The Indy Star reported in May: IU said the new law…is vague and “will institute sweeping and unconstitutional prohibitions.” The impact on IU’s neuroscience research, according to the university’s seven-page complaint, could be “dramatic” and...

    House Bill 451 will have its first hearing in the Ohio Senate on Tuesday. The bill, which would affect who decides a person on life support’s fate, was drafted in response to the 2011 stabbing death of local woman, Maria Vera. In particular, the bill would offer protections in the case that spouses were in the middle of a divorce, legal separation or dissolution. It would also take into consideration situations where the victim has a temporary or civil protection order against their family member. In that case, that family member would not be allowed to determine what happens to...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business is emailing its members warning that Ted Cruz is the biggest pro-life threat the abortion business faces from the Republican presidential candidates. In the email seeking funds for its political campaign supporting Hillary Clinton, Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood, says “every Republican candidate for president this year would be a complete disaster” but explains “Cruz could very well be the biggest threat we face.” Laguesns says Cruz would be the biggest threat to the abortion corporation because “unlike Trump and Kasich, who are more or less in line with the Republican Party’s...

    The state Assembly on Wednesday approved a measure that would allow California physicians to prescribe life-ending drugs to terminally ill patients, sending the proposal to the Senate, which had previously approved a similar bill. Modeled on a law in Oregon, the measure by Assemblywoman Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton) sparked an emotional debate, with many Republicans saying that it is immoral to assist in a suicide, but with supporters arguing that terminally ill Californians should have a choice to die peacefully without pain. [Snip] Opponents of the bill, including the Catholic Church and advocates for the disabled, voiced concern that the...

    LCMS President Harrison encourages Lutherans to ‘kneel before the Crucified One’ “By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers” (1 John 3:16). Last month, thousands of people gathered at Planned Parenthood locations across the United States. Together, they participated in a National Day of Protest, speaking out against the murder of tiny babies still within their mothers’ wombs. It is our hope that the media and the government took notice, and that they will begin a rigorous and honest look at the horrors that...

    HOUSTON — Six days a week, a big blue bus parks right across the street from Houston's Planned Parenthood clinic. At 78,000 square feet, it's one of the largest abortion facilities in the United States. The bus, operated by Houston's Coalition for Life, offers women contemplating an abortion a second chance. It provides free ultrasounds and pregnancy tests to any woman in need. Life and death decisions are literally made on the bus. More than 7,000 women have stepped aboard since it opened four years ago and nine out of 10 have decided to keep their unborn children.

    The assisted-suicide movement is the rare self-proclaimed civil rights movement that exists to cater to the wishes of affluent Americans. On Tuesday, the California Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on SB 128, a bill to legalize assisted suicide in the state. (Proponents don't like the word suicide, so they call the measure the "End of Life Option Act.") Supporters talk of their fear of medical personnel's prolonging their lives, of pain and lack of autonomy; opponents fear that the bill's passage would represent a callous act of cultural abandonment of the sick and disabled. I don't mean to suggest...
