    The Miraculous Closing of the Last Abortion Facility in Corpus Christ, TexasFor many years the pro-life community of Corpus Christi, Texas and surrounding areas prayed in front of the last remaining abortion business left in the town. There were countless novenas and Masses offered along with visitations of a relic from the tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Women and men spent many hours in silent prayer standing on the sidewalk at the busy intersection of Morgan Avenue and the Crosstown Freeway.The clientele at this particular facility was predominantly Hispanic. I think I can safely say at least 75% of...

    It was one of the most riveting moments of Monday's bipartisan 'No Labels' candidates' forum in New Hampshire - but it was fake. During the closing moments of the forum in Manchester, New Hampshire, a young woman asked critical, pointed questions of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump during a question-and-answer session. Turns out the woman, Lauren Batchelder, is an intern for New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte - and a staffer for Jeb Bush's rival presidential campaign, according to the conservative blog The Last Refuge, which outed her.

    According to Texas law he wasn’t old enough or heavy enough to need a death certificate, but he got a proper burial anyway. Allison’s son was 13 weeks and 4 days when she lost him. Her husband Daniel, 2 ˝ year old son Matthew, along with their family, laid Nathan Isaiah to rest on September 12. Nathan’s story is one of life and death—and ultimately life. Allison and Daniel, both 28, rejoiced in the news of their pregnancy and looked forward to February 28, 2014, their due date. After suffering a miscarriage about a year after Matthew’s first birthday, they...

    While Andy McCarthy at NRO calls the EO "blatant chicanery" I think Stupak and his Gang of 12 were a gigantic fraud to begin with. Both Pelosi and the Pro-Abort Dems gave him the middle finger when he tried to add to the Reconciliation Fix the earlier Pro-Life language passed by the House. With nowhere to go, rather than sticking to principle as did the Pro-Abort Dems, he searched for a convenient "fig-leaf" exit. This is why he and his disreputable gang are a bunch of frauds.

    If you listen to the rhetoric from Democrats, the proof that Republicans are fixated on repealing ObamaCare comes from the claim that they've voted 50-some odd times to do so. That's not entirely true, since many were votes to repeal parts of the law. What is true is that Obama himself has signed multiple bills into law that have repealed ObamaCare bit by bit.

    Let us not lose sight of the fact that Planned Parenthood is a satanic organization and THIS is why we must fight against it being funded with our money. One of the tactical mistakes conservative Republicans made after throwing the Democrats out in 1994 was to fail to recognize the principles of learning behavior. The general euphoria of the victory blinded those who led the charge to the need to continually explain the conservative message. This was especially frustrating to watch since the very success of the movement brought in new people eager to know the difference between conservative and...

Sue Thayer, a former Planned Parenthood abortion clinic manager, shared a testimony that proved the organization often considers money a higher priority than patients’ wellbeing: “No business, certainly no healthcare clinic, should view a woman’s body as a profit center, yet that is exactly what Planned Parenthood does,” Thayer said. She had personal anecdotes to prove it: One of the first times that I saw the truth about Planned Parenthood was...

Arkansas on Tuesday asked the justices to overturn a lower court decision that found that the state’s ban on abortion at 12 weeks of pregnancy and when a heartbeat is detected is unconstitutional. The court established the viability standard in the 1973 case Roe v. Wade and reaffirmed it in the 1992 case Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Arkansas argues that the viability rule is arbitrary, not written in the constitution, and is outdated....

The ACLU suit against Trinity Health Corporation alleges that affiliated hospitals, guided by the US bishops’ health-care directives, refused to perform abortions for women who had incomplete miscarriages. The suit claims that in these cases, the breaking of amniotic sac leaves the unborn child defenseless, with no realistic chance of survival, while exposing the mother to risk of complications.

    --regarding the repeated, misleading claim that Planned Parenthood ‘provides’ mammograms We uphold the rating we gave to the president in 2012, and award Three Pinocchios to Planned Parenthood supporters’ continued use of misleading language to suggest that it directly administers mammograms. ......................................................... “All of the signatories [of a letter in support of defunding Planned Parenthood] are men. None of whom will get pregnant, or need a cervical screening for cancer, or a mammogram, or a pap smear, or other life-saving services that are provided by Planned Parenthood.” –---Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing on...

    Planned Parenthood’s chief executive officer Cecile Richards told Congressional investigators that she had never heard of such a thing as an “abortion survivor,” calling the concept “totally nonsensical.” “When a woman comes to us to terminate her pregnancy it would be a gross dereliction of duty if we were to permit a fetus to survive the procedure,” she said. “We take every conceivable precaution to ensure that this doesn’t happen.” One precaution that Richards touted as fool proof was the harvesting of organs from the fetus. “Once the fetus has been dismembered and the organs extracted there is no chance...
  • Carly Fiorina's charity has given half a million dollars to Planned Parenthood since 2011

    Nothing has defined Carly Forina's presidential campaign quite like her outspoken opposition to Planned Parenthood — a point she has brought up repeatedly at debates and press conferences. It might seem odd, then, that her Fiorina Foundation has given half a million dollars to Planned Parenthood since 2011. The Fiorina Foundation isn't actually, legally, a foundation, per se; it's an account Fiorina and her husband hold with The Ayco Charitable Foundation, a "donor-advised fund" that stashes charitable donations for clients in case they want to quickly receive tax benefits, The Daily Beast explains. One expert on the topic described it...
  • Planned Parenthood’s Defense: We Harvested Brain of a Different Baby

    Planned Parenthood and its allies have offered a bizarre defense against Carly Fiorina’s recent comments in which she describes “a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’” They say that the living baby seen in the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) video (at the 6-min mark), aborted at 18 weeks and left to die in a stainless steel bowl, is not the baby whose brain was harvested in a PP clinic. No, they cut open the face of a different baby to...

    At the end of World War II, American soldiers walked German civilians through the death camps in order to help them wake up to the reality that Jews were systematically killed. The public’s imagination had to be shocked awake through deliberate uncovering of evidence that the Holocaust happened right there in their midst. Today, due diligence must likewise awaken the American conscience from the lull of the abortion status quo where power and privilege reside.David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress are currently escorting the American public through the the back rooms of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities in order...

    The American Civil Liberties Union has sued a Catholic health care provider for refusing to provide abortions. They claim Trinity Health Corporation has violated federal law by “refusing to provide pregnant women suffering emergency medical conditions with abortions necessary to stabilize them”. The 86 hospitals that fall under the corporation are required to abide by “Directive 45” which states abortion is never permitted. In June, U.S. District Judge Robert Holmes Bell dismissed a similar ACLU lawsuit against Trinity Health. He ruled federal courts have no jurisdiction over hospital policy and that patients who believed they received inadequate care should file...

Francis presided at a solemn Mass in St. Peter's Basilica to open the meeting, known as a synod, on the theme of the family in the modern world.

    Detroit, Mich., Oct 4, 2015 / 06:01 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Trinity Health Corporations, one of the largest Catholic health care operations in America, is seeking the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union over its refusal to provide women with abortion services at their medical facilities.   "This case has no merit.  A federal court already dismissed a similar ACLU claim, and we will seek dismissal of this suit for the same reason," stated Eve Pidgeon, the manager of public relations at Trinity Health Corporations. Trinity Health Corporations is a multi-facility operation headquartered in Livonia, a...

    As the moon floated free of the earth, at 12:30 a.m., on Monday, September 28, a magnificent emanating penumbra encircled the reflected light that gives human life its subjective zen. The quiet reflection of this huge blood moon, however, showed no banner across its face declaring, “America, it’s OK to kill your innocent babies. Do you care about their blood?” The emanating penumbra that Justice Harry Blackmun saw back in 1973, a penumbra that he himself created out of whole cloth, was a false, cruel, baby killing penumbra. This week’s blood moon was clear, bright, beautiful, but stained with the...
