    More than 2,200 preserved fetal remains were found on the property of a dead abortion doctor, the Will County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.The remains were found on the property of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who was described by the South Bend Tribune in 2016 as “likely Indiana’s most prolific abortion doctor.” Court records show Klopfer lived on Pine Court in Crete Township.An attorney for Klopfer’s family contacted the Will County Coroner’s Office on Thursday about the discovery of what appeared to be fetal remains, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.Klopfer died Sept. 3.Sheriff’s detectives and representatives from the coroner’s...

    FULL TITLE: Christine Ford May Face Investigation After Lawyer Admits Abortion Prompted False Attacks on Brett Kavanaugh GOP Sen. Thom Tillis said a new investigation into Dr. Christine Blasey Fords allegations of sexual misconduct against Justice Brett Kavanaugh may be appropriate in light of a new book suggesting she had political motives. The North Carolina Republican, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Fox News that new video of Fords lawyer connecting her allegations with the broader fight over abortion rundermines Fords credibility and could necessitate the Justice Departments intervention. This does seem to undermine what we all believed...

    WASHINGTON Moving ahead despite objections, the Trump administration on Friday set a timetable for federally funded family clinics to comply with a new rule that bars them from referring women for abortions. The move is part of a series of efforts to remake government policy on reproductive health to please conservatives who are a key part of President Donald Trumps political base. Religious conservatives see the family planning program as providing an indirect subsidy to Planned Parenthood, a major abortion provider.

    Washington Post ^ | June 2, 2019 | Glenn Kessler - Fact Checker Analysis
    We face a real situation where Roe could be overturned. And we know what will happen, which is that women will die. Thousands of women died every year pre-Roe. Leana Wen, president of Planned Parenthood, in an interview with WFAA of Dallas, March 6, 2019 [hugesnip] THE FACTS By 1959, a leading researcher wrote: Abortion is no longer a dangerous procedure. This applies not just to therapeutic abortions as performed in hospitals but also to so-called illegal abortions as done by physicians. In 1957, there were only 260 deaths in the whole country attributed to abortions of any kind....
  • Did Two Justices Just Signal Theyre Ready To Overturn Roe V Wade?

    Today, NBC published an opinion piece by attorney Michael Conway arguing that several members of the Supreme Court seem to be hinting that the court’s long commitment to Roe v Wade shouldn’t be seen as a guarantee of protection.Those hints came in statements the Justices made in a 7-2 decision revealed Monday. The Gamble v. United States case was a decision about whether a man could be charged twice, once at the state level and once at the federal level, for the same crime without violating double jeopardy. Gamble lost the case, meaning the court decided existing precedent should...
  • Clarence Thomas calls for abandoning 'demonstrably erroneous' precedent (trunc)

    In a concurring opinion in a Supreme Court case announced Monday, Justice Clarence Thomas issued a lengthy call for his colleagues to overturn "demonstrably erroneous decisions" even if they have been upheld for decades -- prompting legal observers to say Thomas was laying the groundwork to overturn the seminal 1973 case Roe v. Wade, which established a constitutional right to abortion. Thomas' blunt opinion came in Gamble v. United States, a case concerning the so-called "double-jeopardy" doctrine, which generally prohibits an individual from being charged twice for the same crime. But both pro-life and pro-choice advocates quickly noted the implications...
  • Texas Town Outlaws Abortion, Declares Sanctuary City for the Unborn

    The Daily Signal ^ | June 13, 2019 | Mary Margaret Olohan, The Daily Caller News Foundation
    A city council in Waskom, Texas, outlawed abortion procedures Wednesday and declared the city a sanctuary for the unborn. The move was pushed by Right to Life of East Texas and precedes another bill Texas lawmakers are pushing, which would require doctors to care for babies born alive following botched abortions. Abortions are not permitted in the state of Texas after 20 weeks, The Washington Post reports. Waskom sits on the Texas and Louisiana border and is the first city in Texas to declare such a measure. There are no abortion clinics in Waskom. Congratulations Waskom, Texas for becoming the...
  • Joe Scarborough: 'I Know' Chief Justice Roberts Will Never Overturn Roe

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    If Joe Scarborough is right, there is something seriously wrong with Chief Justice John Roberts and his Court. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough claimed, "I know the Roberts Court is not going to overturn" Roe v. Wade because a recent poll shows only 13% of Americans want it overturned. Refusing to apply the Constitution, bowing instead to the public sentiment of the day, would represent an appalling abdication of the Court's duty. That is particularly so regarding Roe, a decision that even many supporters of abortion rights, and an MSNBC legal analyst, recognize was decided on dubious-at-best constitutional grounds. Get...

    Joy Reid devoted a segment of her MSNBC show this morning to attacking recently-enacted state laws on abortion. Reid teased the segment by saying the Christian far-right is trying to "send women back to the Dark Ages . . . turning all of America into Gilead from the Handmaid's Tale."During the ensuing segment, it was suggested that the people enacting these laws have no interest in protecting children, but just want to turn women into pregnancy "vessels."Dr. Leana Wen, the President of Planned Parenthood, said that the laws are all about "oppression, misogyny, power, and control over women's bodies."One striking...

    As the Trump administration is set to unveil its latest iteration of immigration reform, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed the proposal for more merit-based immigration as "condescending" and signaled that Democrats would not support legislation that does not include a pathway to citizenship. A senior administration official told CBS News that the president's proposal aims to alter the composition of incoming legal immigrants, with a focus on increasing the share of highly skilled immigrants. The plan also calls for improving physical border security. "They say family is without merit -- are they saying most of the people that come to...

    Video at link. ( - Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), one of 22 Democrats seeking her party's presidential nomination, told MSNBC on Wednesday that Alabama's new abortion ban is "draconian and inhumane," and she called for "action" against Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch if they do not uphold Roe v. Wade. Both men are Trump appointees. Gillibrand said President Trump has deliberately selected "radical justices" to "undermine basic reproductive freedoms and civil rights" of women. "And I'm going to lift this up, and as President of the United States, I will not appoint any justice that does not...

    Now here's a surprise. MSNBC legal analyst Danny Cevallos went on today's Morning Joe and flatly declared that Roe v. Wade is "ripe to be overturned" because "even if you are pro-choice, the right to privacy [upon which Roe was based] does not exist either in the history or the text of the Constitution." Cevallos also said that Roe "stands on a weak foundational basis." [snip] Joe Scarborough didn't express a personal opinion on Cevallos' statement. But he did note that back in law school, his "very progressive" constitutional law prof, while agreeing with Roe's conclusion, acknowledged that it was...

    Advancing his anti-abortion agenda, President Donald Trump moved Thursday to protect health care workers who object to procedures like abortion on moral or religious grounds. Trump chose the National Day of Prayer to announce the new regulation. Just today we finalized new protections of conscience rights for physicians, pharmacists, nurses, teachers, students and faith-based charities, Trump told an interfaith audience in the White House Rose Garden. Theyve been wanting to do that for a long time. The conscience rule was a priority for religious conservatives who are a key part of Trumps political base, but some critics fear it will...

    Associated Press ^ | April 30, 2019 | Kim Chandler
    The Alabama House voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to outlaw almost all abortions in the state as conservatives took aim at the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide. The Republican-dominated House of Representatives voted 74-3 for legislation that would make it a felony to perform an abortion at any stage in a womans pregnancy. The proposal passed after Democrats walked out of the chamber after sometimes emotional debate with opponents and supporters crowding the gallery. The bill now moves to the Alabama Senate. Supporters said the bill is intentionally designed to conflict with the U.S. Supreme Courts landmark 1973...

    Emboldened by the new conservative majority on the Supreme Court, anti-abortion lawmakers and activists in numerous states are pushing near-total bans on the procedure in a deliberate frontal attack on Roe v. Wade. Mississippi and Kentucky have passed laws that would ban most abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected which means as early as six weeks, when many women dont even know theyre pregnant. Georgia could join them if Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signs a measure that has been sent to him, and similar bills are pending in at least eight other states with anti-abortion GOP majorities in...

    Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children POPE FRANCIS We need to develop a new synthesis capable of overcoming the false arguments of recent centuries. When we fail to acknowledge as part of reality the worth of a poor person, a human embryo, a person with disabilities to offer just a few examples it becomes difficult to hear the cry of nature itself; everything is connected. Once the human being declares independence from reality and behaves with absolute dominion, the very foundations of our life begin to crumble, for "instead of carrying out his role...

    Christian Post ^ | 01/17/2019 | Julie Roys
    Pro-choice advocates consistently forward the narrative that the majority of the American public does not want to overturn Roe v. Wade. And to some degree, surveys and polls agree. For example, a 2018 poll reported in Vox found that 67-percent of Americans would not like to see Roe overturned, and only 29-percent would. However, a survey released Monday shows that support for Roe v. Wade is based largely on ignorance. When educated about the realities of abortion, opposition to the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion rises sharply. The survey conducted by Students for Life of Americas Institute for Pro-Life...
