  • Mixed Reaction to Proposed Abortion ‘Heartbeat Bills’ (Pennsylvania)

    WNEP ^ | October 22, 2019 | Nikki Krize,
    HARRISBURG, Pa. -- In front of a large crowd at the State Capitol in Harrisburg, two state lawmakers introduced legislation that would restrict abortion in Pennsylvania. Senate Bill 912 and House Bill 1977 are known as the "heartbeat bills." The bills would prohibit abortion after six weeks once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Newswatch 16 spoke with people in the Lewisburg area about the proposed legislation. "No, that law should not be passed, in my opinion," said Ana Holzberger. "Any kind of heartbeat, it's a person, but I think it starts very early. I really am against abortion," Ruth Yoder...
  • SC senators advance bill banning most abortions after striking rape, incest exceptions

    State senators on Tuesday removed exceptions for rape and incest from a bill that bans abortions roughly six weeks after conception, potentially setting up a conflict with the House, which approved the exceptions earlier this year after contentious debate. Senators in committee voted 4-3 to strike the exceptions, as proposed by Sen. Richard Cash, R-Powdersville, the chamber’s most ardent abortion foe. Another 4-3 vote advanced the measure to the full Medical Affairs Committee. The bill, H.3020, would make it illegal to get an abortion in South Carolina after a fetal heartbeat has been detected, which occurs five to eight weeks...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The debate over abortion rights in South Carolina is heating up this week. The Senate Medical Affairs Subcommittee met Tuesday morning to discuss House Bill 3020, also sometimes known as the fetal heartbeat bill. The bill would ban abortions so long as a heartbeat can be detected, which can happen as early as six weeks into the pregnancy. Sometimes women don’t know they are pregnant at six weeks. Tuesday, members of a Senate subcommittee voted to add an amendment to the bill to remove exceptions for women who were victims of rape or incest. That amendment...

    FULL TITLE: Illinois Law Allowing Abortion Up to Birth Faces Legal Challenge Over Forcing Christians to Fund Abortions The new Illinois law allowing abortions up to birth faces its first legal challenge — in part because it forces Christians to fund abortions. As LifeNews reported this Spring, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a law allowing abortions for any reason up to birth and forcing every state insurance plan to cover them. That last part is what is earning the law its first legal battle. Today, the the Thomas More Society filed a complaint against Illinois’ Reproductive Health Act with the...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood Abortionist Who Discussed “Crushing” Babies to Harvest Their Organs Testifies as Video of Her Statements Played for the Jury In another big development in our trial against Planned Parenthood, the judge, for the first time, allowed a significant portion of one of the undercover videos to be played for the jury as the Planned Parenthood abortionist who discussed “crushing” babies to harvest their organs was on the stand. Dr. Deborah Nucatola performed abortions for 21 years and was the Senior Director of Medical Services at PPFA. She testified that she performs "Between 50 and 200" abortions...

    “That was THE best WVFL State Convention that I have ever attended!” said one woman as she was leaving the 46th annual event which took place October 19 in Fairmont, West Virginia. The highlight of the day was a visit from pro-life Governor Jim Justice who spoke for 30 minutes. Gov. Justice talked of his support for upcoming legislation as well as a personal story of one of his wife’s pregnancies. The crowd was also addressed by Rep. David McKinley who has a 100% pro-life voting record. Attorney General Patrick Morrisey spoke as well, and reiterated the importance of mounting...

    You have to hand it to Planned Parenthood. Few are as adroit as creating shell companies and employing misdirection so that no Fairview Heights, Illinois city official knew that the nation’s leading abortion provider was secretly converting an existing but vacant medical office into a gigantic 18,000 sq. foot clinic where it would perform both surgical and chemical (“medication”) abortions. The ribbon-cutting and rally is scheduled for later today, with the killing geared to begin Wednesday. “Fairview Heights Mayor Mark Kupsky said the city administration had not been informed of Monday’s ribbon cutting event,” according to Joseph Bustos of the...

    Here at NewsBusters, we have a love/hate relationship with the CBS drama God Friended Me. It can be a faith-friendly show with positive messages, but, like all network television, it has also included a left-wing LGBT agenda. But this Sunday’s episode, “All Those Yesterdays,” proved again why God Friended Me has landed on our “nice” list in the past. When new character Joy (Jessica Lu) joined the “God account” team this season, we learned that she had placed a child in a closed adoption at age 16. The audience discovered a few weeks ago that Joy arrived in New York...

    Only days ago, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom signed a new, first of its kind law that will require all tax-payer funded public universities to make chemical abortion available to students. That’s right, the Governor of California has decided it is reasonable to force the taxpayers of California to pay for campus abortions! According to a report from the California’s Department of Finance (which objected to the legislation), “the new policy would cost University of California–system schools somewhere between $4.6 million and $7.8 million to initiate, with additional ongoing costs of $2.2 million to $3.3 million beginning in 2023 to operate...

    Irish Times ^ | October 21, 2019 | Freya McClements, Gerry Moriarty
    An attempt to thwart the liberalisation of abortion law in Northern Ireland fell at the first hurdle on Monday when the Northern Assembly, sitting for the first time in more than a thousand days, was unable to complete the first item of business – the election of a speaker. The appointment of a new speaker required a cross-community vote but as Sinn Féin and the SDLP boycotted the vote this parliamentary obligation could not be met. The DUP had supported the attempt to have a motion passed that would mean that any changes to abortion legislation or same sex marriage...

    “Best cities” lists typically are made for people looking for vacation spots, places to settle down with a family, or a career that they love. But a disturbing new list from the National Institute for Reproductive Health highlights cities that make it easy to abort unborn babies. Fast Company reports the pro-abortion group ranked 50 U.S. cities based on 34 different indicators, including how much they promote abortion access. The “top” city for killing unborn babies is San Francisco, with New York City and Chicago close behind, according to the list. Boston, Los Angeles, Portland, Oregon, Seattle and Washington, D.C....
  • Colorado abortion rates keep declining. Free IUDs and easier access to the pill are the reason.

    Abortion rates have dropped again in Colorado, and heath authorites are crediting increased access to birth control statewide. Pharmacists have written thousands of prescriptions for the birth control pill since 2017, when Colorado became only the third state in the nation to allow women to get prescriptions for oral contraceptives at the pharmacy instead of only from a doctor. State and federal dollars are funding free and low-cost IUDs — intrauterine devices that prevent pregnancy for five years or more — for low-income women and teens who visit community health clinics across the state. Another contributing factor: the so-called morning-after...

    Jeffrey Epstein, a powerful pedophile who got a pass from multiple justice systems, until his luck ran out, is dead. These are bits and pieces of a much bigger picture about the powerful relationships that he maintained with some very powerful people. We know that Epstein had a relationship with Bill Gates that was compelling enough to get the Microsoft kingpin to donate millions on his behalf. In October, 2014, the Media Lab received a two-million-dollar donation from Bill Gates; Ito wrote in an internal e-mail, “This is a $2M gift from Bill Gates directed by Jeffrey Epstein.” Cohen replied,...

    The Supreme Court will hear a constitutional challenge to the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). At issue is a provision that gives the bureau’s director uniquely strong job protections — the director may only be removed by the president for-cause. Justice Brett Kavanaugh is poised for a significant role in the case, as he wrote a sweeping 80-page opinion as an appeals court judge arguing the contested provision is unlawful. The Supreme Court announced Friday that it will hear a constitutional challenge to the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a watchdog agency whose existence...

    The Alabama Republican Party said Friday that U.S. Sen. Doug Jones', D-Ala., intention to vote against confirming Brett Kavanaugh "betrays our state." Jones indicated Thursday night that he would not vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, citing what he believed was Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's credible testimony that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when he was a high school student. Alabama's junior senator also suggested that the Senate Judiciary Committee's decision not to subpoena Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge, whom Ford said witnessed the incident, and the committee's failure to receive all relevant documents on Kavanaugh impacted his decision.

    Unknown vandals destroyed 40 of 61 pro-life memorial crosses and stacked them in two piles on Oct. 12 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Buckingham, Pa. The crosses commemorate the millions of unborn children killed since the legalization of abortion after the 1973 Supreme Court decision of Roe vs. Wade. The vandals also stole two signs saying “stop surgical abortions.” Pastor Msgr. Joseph Gentili wrote a letter to his parishioners regarding the horrific incident. He explained that this crime is one of two acts of vandalism occurring on the church’s campus over the past two weeks. The first...

    I am a baby killer. I stopped mid-step on my way into my office in Manhattan, and that thought scrolled through my brain yet again: “I am a baby killer.” It was an April day this year, nine weeks after I ended my child’s life. I decided to keep walking. That is a choice I have to make every day: Give up or keep moving. I have been choosing the latter, over and over again. I consider myself “pro-life.” But that phrase is heavy with multiple meanings. Like “pro-choice.” I identify with both of those terms. I am a walking...
