    James Pendergraft is a late term abortionist, who performs abortions up to 28 weeks. He works in Florida. From an article about him: “Pendergraft also isn’t bashful about making money in his line of work. He says he went into a profession he believes in, and it happens to be profitable… He will not reveal annual revenues, but he says his clinics are “very economically viable.” “His in-your-face salesmanship leaves many – including other clinic operators – uncomfortable. They wonder how much of his professed altruism is just a marketing pitch. Maggie Gifford, a spokeswoman for the Florida coalition of...

    SOCIALIST TD RUTH Coppinger says she’s helped “around two dozen” women access abortion pills advertised online in recent months. The Dublin West deputy said there had been an upswing in awareness of the drugs since she and other pro-choice campaigners took part in a stunt at the end of October — travelling from Belfast by train, and bringing back the pills, which are not available in the Republic. Coppinger and other activists swallowed the pills on their return to Connolly Station (below). arlier in October, an RTÉ investigation revealed that the number of seizures of the pills had more than...

    Background: On Nov 5th, 2014, Dr. Gregory Fiebig, a professor at Indiana Wesleyan University (a Christian university), presented his pro-abortion views at the "Life vs Choice" public forum. His statements included, "I’m very strongly supportive of pro-choice, and I have a very theological reason for that." Days later, Dr. Fiebig gave a more detailed defense of legal abortion in a letter to IWU's student newspaper, The Sojourn. In a letter to the IWU community, President Dr. David Wright offered no evidence to change the perception that Dr. Fiebig supports legal abortion. This is why we are calling for Dr. Fiebig...

    p>If a pro-life website had said that the most vocal supporters of abortion-on-demand also have a soft spot for Satan, it would have become one of Right-Wing Watch's top tweets. But a left-wing website has posted an entry praising the devil's disciples for doing their part to thwart pro-life laws. In an article for the pro-abortion website Care2.com entitled “Four Ways Satanists are Improving the U.S. Government,” blogger Kevin Mathews wrote, “If there’s one religious group I’m really impressed with at this point, it’s the Satanists.”One of The Satanic Temple's four acts of faith that garnered Mathews' approval is “Supporting...

A vast array of faith-based films have released this year, some to significant success including Heaven is for Real, Irreplaceable and Son of God. But Rick Santorum says we can do more than entertain with films. “Yes, we make films for the church,” he said recently at The Heritage Foundation. “We need to wake up the church!” As CEO of Echolight Studios, Santorum aims to do just that with the new documentary film One Generation Away.

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. A bill filed this month would require pregnant women to get permission from the father before having an abortion except in cases of incest and what the Missouri Republican who sponsored the legislation called "legitimate rape." If passed, state Rep. Rick Brattin's bill would require women to obtain notarized written permission from the father to terminate a pregnancy. The mandate would be waived for rape and incest. An identical bill by the Harrisonville lawmaker died in committee last session. "Just like any rape, you have to report it, and you have to prove it," Brattin told Mother...

    PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix-area school district will not edit a high school honors biology textbook to remove content to comply with a state law on abortion-related instructional material. The Gilbert Unified School District board agreed during a meeting Tuesday to find an alternative solution that does not involve redacting the textbook, the Arizona Republic reported (http://bit.ly/1z4FP7y ). Superintendent Christina Kishimoto had asked the board to reverse its request, saying editing the copyrighted book could open the district to legal issues. At issue is a chapter in the textbook, "Campbell Biology: Concepts & Connections," that discusses abstinence, birth-control methods, tubal...

Compared to other City Council members, last year Ashby spent the least -- about $35,000 on community service programs and local events.

    Yesterday, the Council of the District of Columbia passed a bill that could force employers in the nation’s capital to cover elective abortions in their health plans and require even pro-life organizations to hire individuals who oppose their views on abortion. The bill will now go to Mayor Vincent Gray for approval. This latest attempt to violate the freedom of individuals in the District should spur Congress to better protect the conscience rights for all Americans. The “Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act,” specifically prohibits employers from discriminating in “compensation, terms, conditions or privileges of employment” on the basis of an individual’s...

    Pro-choice writer Molly Coddle: “Abortion is killing, but not murder. Americans would like to think that death is avoidable, and for that reason liberals have tried to sugarcoat a women’s right to choose with an “it’s-not-about-the-fetus” argument that disregards the emotional intensity that everyone I know has experienced when choosing to abort. When we recognize that something is dying—if only a possibility of life—then it’s possible to grieve and move forward.” Molly Coddle Herbal Abortion is not D.I.Y Slingshot

Polish pro-lifers organized a boycott of Empik, whose 200 stores sell books, magazines, DVDs, video games and other products. Empik’s Christmas ad campaign seems a better fit for Halloween, featuring a famous Satanist and an author who has boasted of her own abortions. Empik’s controversial campaign consisted of TV spots and posters with famous entertainers advertising various Christmas gifts. Among the...

But apparently, according to a new article on the pro-abortion website Think Progress titled, “God Loves Women Who Have Abortions': The Religious Abortion Advocates That History Forgot” more religious leaders should support “reproductive freedom.” The article presents three main points: God loves women who’ve had abortions, religious clergy joined the pro-abortion movement because too many women were dying from back alley abortions and historically the religious community has failed to love post-abortive women. First of all, of course God loves women who have had abortions, that’s NEVER been in question. Yet,...

President Barack Obama did not move forward with his unilateral action on immigration before the midterm elections, because he was worried he would pay too high a price. Additional congressional Democrats might have lost, and more Democrats would have blamed him for the losses. He moved forward with his unconstitutional action after the elections because he calculated — correctly — that Republican congressional leaders would let him get away with it. One...

    A medical ethicist who supported abortion said the following shortly after Roe versus Wade: “The ethical principle is that pregnancy, when wanted, is a healthy process, pregnancy, when not wanted is a disease – in fact, a venereal disease.” Joseph Fletcher, The Ethics of Genetic Control: Ending Reproductive Roulette (Garden City, New York: Anchor Press, 1974) 142

    Life Begins in the Womb “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5, ESV) Every Christian living in the United States is confronted with a question. Is abortion permissible? Abortion is lawful. Many people consider it a viable alternative to an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy. Many of the people who espouse such a belief are intelligent and appear to be well informed. Regardless of a person's social status or level of education, that person is still subject to truth....

    Kay Bellevue, who started an abortion clinic in Fargo: “I have always acted on what to me are Judeo-Christian principles. The 10 Commandments plus love thy neighbor.… It’s very distressing to me that [people,] particularly the people opposed to abortion, will attempt to say their moral beliefs are the only correct ones… I think pro-choice people have a very strong basis in theology for the caring, loving perspective they have on abortion as do the antiabortion people have a basis in theology for their strong, loving caring perspective about the fetus.” Quoted in Faye D Ginsburg Contested Lives: the Abortion...

    A clinic worker described one of the women who came to her clinic for an abortion: “Another [woman coming in for an abortion] who identified herself as Christian, was very active in her church. Before the abortion she said, “I’m in church six days a week, yet here I am.” She said that her religion forbids abortion, but after a good conversation she said that maybe her church was “too comfortable” in its position against abortion. She thought maybe they needed to examine the aspects of the issue that they were comfortable with. Even though she was steeped in her...

    Do you remember when Planned Parenthood called Kermit Gosnell’s abortion facility a “criminal enterprise? ” Well, apparently the abortion giant has many abortion facilities of their own that are very similar to Gosnell’s. In 2013, Timothy Liveright, who worked at two Planned Parenthood facilities in Delaware, was charged with multiple counts of incompetence and negligence related to abortions done on five women between February and March of that year. As Lifenews previously reported, some of the other charges he faced included over-medicating patents, doing unnecessary surgical procedures, and failing to properly monitor patients and provide appropriate emergency care. Additionally, his...
  • The Mormon Church's official statement on abortion [rape+ incest+mom's 'health'+'defect'+prayer-ok]

    "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believes in the sanctity of human life... The Church allows for possible exceptions for its members when: Pregnancy results from rape or incest, or A competent physician determines that the life or health of the mother is in serious jeopardy, or A competent physician determines that the fetus has severe defects that will not allow the baby to survive beyond birth. The Church teaches its members that even these rare exceptions do not justify abortion automatically. Abortion is a most serious matter and should be considered only after the persons involved have...

    Abortifacient contraceptive use among U.S. women has almost doubled in the last eight years, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report released last week.

This represents an increase from 3.8 percent of women who answered the same during the period between 2006 and 2010, according to details of the study reported by Yahoo News.
