    The Catholic Herald (UK) ^ | 1/14/19 | Emily Benson
    Officials at the New York State Catholic Conference are calling the Reproductive Health Act “worse than we thought it would be.” “It foresees a time in New York where it’s a crime to be pro-life,” said Kathleen Gallagher, director of pro-life activities and the Catholic Action Network for the conference, which is the public policy arm of the state’s Catholic bishops. The measure, introduced in the Legislature the week of January 7, will expand access to abortion in the state, despite being promoted as simply codifying Roe v Wade. It not only increases access to abortion across the board, including...

    A group of charitable nuns will be forced pay for drugs that may cause abortions in their employee health plans as a result of a federal judge’s ruling Sunday. The ruling by Judge Haywood Gilliam, a nominee of pro-abortion President Barack Obama, blocks the Trump administration from enforcing rules that provide wider religious exemptions to groups like Little Sisters of the Poor ...

    Where have we heard this story before? On December 12, T. Scott Marr is found in his bed, unresponsive but breathing, and rushed to Methodist Hospital where he is placed on a breathing machine. He is diagnosed as having suffered a stroke. The family returns the next day and doctors tell them there has been no neurological improvement. “Brain swelling — primarily in the back of the brain — concerned his doctors,” according to Kelsey Stewart of the Omaha World-Herald. “We were worried in this case that this was not a reversible process and that it was going to proceed...

    Imagine having to pass protesters on your way into court, where a judge is ready to deal with your divorce application, because some people believe marriage ought to be "till death us do part". Or how about having to make your way past a blockade to access a family planning clinic? What if you had to face down people with reproving placards beside a chemist's shop stocking emergency contraception? How about trying to get by pickets outside a hospital which does sterilisations or gender reassignment? How would you feel about demonstrations outside venues conducting same-sex marriages? There will always be...

    The nurse being investigated for her role in the disappearance of a Colorado mom allegedly told a friend about how a man “had asked her to kill the mother of his child,” according to a new report. An Idaho couple told KMVT Wednesday that an employee of theirs, who was best friends with the nurse — who’s been identified as Krystal Lee — came to them visibly upset last October. Lee had reportedly told her friend that a man wanted her to kill the mother of his child. It’s unclear what Lee’s relationship with the man was. Joe and Patty...

    In February 2017, the Asia-Pacific Journal of Clinical Oncology published the “Epidemiology of breast cancer in Indian women.” Malvia, et al. found that from 1982-2005, the incidence of breast cancer had almost doubled. Breast cancer is now the leading cause of cancer deaths in women in India. India’s burden of breast cancer is ever increasing and now impacting 1.5 million women a year. Moreover women suffering from breast cancer were a decade younger than women in western countries. Most breast cancers in India occur in women in their 30s and 40s!

    Planned Parenthood of Idaho has sued the state in attempt to allow non-medical doctors to perform abortions. “The lawsuit filed December 14 by the abortion company and Seattle-based feminist group Legal Voice argues that an Idaho law requiring that a licensed physician perform abortions is unconstitutional” according to LifeSiteNews. Legal Voice portrays itself as a women’s rights group in all aspects of life, focusing primarily the abortion issue. As if abortions weren’t dangerous enough, the group has taken it upon themselves to challenge the state law that required Medical Doctors to perform abortions. The group and Planned Parenthood are bringing forth legislation...

    Alice's looking glass had an odd property. It not only reversed the appearance of objects, it reversed logic.. When Alice entered the world behind the mirror 'she discovered that if she tried to run she remained in place. If she wanted to go toward something she had to try to move away from it. The claim that abortion "empowers" women uses such reverse logic. The most powerful action a woman can take is to make a new human being. Abortion shuts down that powerful activity. Making babies allows women to have a huge impact on the world. . Two of...

    SEARCH MENU Woman Opens Life-Saving Pregnancy Center After Planned Parenthood Invades Her Neighborhood National Gayle Irwin Jan 2, 2019 | 5:15PM Washington, DC Nearly four years ago, when Planned Parenthood opened a clinic in her community, Ivette Rodriguez envisioned leading a pregnancy center to touch the hearts and minds of women tempted to end the lives of their unborn children. This month, that vision becomes reality when the doors of Beyond Pregnancy Care Center finally open in Kissimmee, Florida. Although the journey here has had its bumps, Rodriguez’ faith has empowered her to see it through. “This is an answer...

    TRENTON, New Jersey, January 3, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Just before Christmas, pro-life advocates were arrested for entering the Trenton, New Jersey Planned Parenthood and distributing red roses to abortion-vulnerable women. They saved at least one life during this Red Rose Rescue (RRR). At roughly 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 22, pro-life advocates Father Fidelis Moscinski of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, William Goodman, Patrice Woodworth, and Matthew Connolly entered the abortion facility on State Street in Trenton. This was the first RRR at a Planned Parenthood. The pro-lifers counseled some six women in the waiting room and gave them...

    Full title: Knights of Columbus issue a pitch-perfect response to the anti-Catholic bigotry to Senators Hirono and Harris Readers of American Thinker ( here, here, and here) are familiar with the appalling religious test for office that seems to be lurking in the questions submitted in writing to a nominee for a federal judgeship by Senators Hirono and Harris. In sum: In a series of questions sent to Buescher, Hirono asked whether his membership in the Knights of Columbus would prevent him from hearing cases "fairly and impartially" and, if confirmed, whether he would end his membership in the organization....

    Thanks to media efforts, children are learning all about abortion just in time for the new year – from a staunch abortion supporter only too happy to regurgitate talking points to youngsters.On Dec. 28, Kids Meet, a HiHo show run by, released its latest episode on Facebook: “Kids Meet Someone Who's Had an Abortion.” In this case, that someone was Amelia Bonow – the cofounder of #ShoutYourAbortion, a network that encourages women share their positive abortion stories. While Bonow accused the pro-life movement of “propaganda,” she spread some of her own to kids – from calling abortion “God’s plan” to...

    Claim 1st Amendment gives them right to hide their use of tax money They all “want their involvement in research using aborted baby body parts to remain secret,” according to officials with the Thomas More Society, which is representing Daleiden in this case. They “have gone to court to force heavy redactions to the public documents. However, that is contrary to the law, which says that those documents must be released because they detail their work procuring, processing, and transferring the organs and tissue of aborted babies in connection with the university’s large taxpayer-funded fetal tissue research program,” the organization...

    There’s a lengthy, sordid history of the damage children suffer because of “progressive” values and policies. In 2018, the harm went beyond passive side effects. The left is now brazenly cheering over the corruption, pain and heartbreak of children. And sometimes, their deaths. What can be done? We must work within all lawful means possible to stop this evil. Here are some of the year’s worst examples, although this article could go on and on: 10. Colleges are now recommending 4-year-olds engage in sexual activity. Yes, some UC Santa Barbara academics have advanced the idea that pre-schoolers should engage in...

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List.Over the last few decades, advances in science and medical technology have given us a window into the womb. Through ultrasounds, doctors monitor the movements and heartbeats of babies at their earliest stages, and parents can see their child breathing, kicking, wiggling their toes, and stretching their arms.A growing body of medical studies tells us that at least by 20 weeks – or 140 days – of gestation, a baby responds to stimulation because the brain can receive pain signals. Long before that 20-week mark,...

    Well, well, well, it turns out that Planned Parenthood might not be the immaculate champion of women’s rights they insist to be. Well we all knew that, but it sure is nice to see it as an official story written by The New York Times. In a Thursday report, The New York Times exposed the abortion giant’s “discrimination” against its own pregnant employees. The Times cited the firsthand accounts from several Planned Parenthood employees, including assistant Ta’Lisa Hairston, who complained the “reproductive rights” provider ignored her doctor’s requests that she be allowed to take breaks for the sake of her...

    When Ashley Bratcher took the leading role in Unplanned, she wasn't ambivalent about life -- but she wasn't exactly passionate about it either. Then came the revelation that turned her world upside down. Ashley, who was about to star in a movie about abortion, had almost been a victim of it. Her emotional true story came tumbling out in interview on Fox & Friends Tuesday, giving the project a whole new meaning. And not just for Ashley. Like a lot of actresses, Bratcher had no idea who Abby Johnson was when she first auditioned to play her. "I was given...

    Many media commentators are warning readers about a new Ohio bill because it could prevent women from obtaining abortions before they know they’re pregnant. But in the process of doing so, they’re making a pro-life message go viral: Abortion stops a beating heart.On Dec. 12, the Ohio Senate made national headlines for approving abortion legislation, known as the “heartbeat bill” or H.B. 258, which would ban the abortion of unborn babies with a detectable heartbeat. Republican Gov. John Kasich has promised to veto the bill – which resembles one he vetoed in 2016. But that didn’t keep the media, from...
