  • The Unbalanced California FACT Act

    03/20/2018 7:03:23 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | March 20, 2018 | Cal Thomas
    On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear arguments over whether pro-life pregnancy help centers in California should be required to post notices informing women of the availability of abortions elsewhere. The pregnancy help centers are contesting the law, disingenuously named the California Reproductive FACT Act, claiming it violates their free speech rights, as well as undercuts the reason for their existence. Some might ask in the interest of fairness and equality (two buzzwords the left likes to use in other situations) whether abortion clinics are required to post notices with information about alternatives to the procedure. According to Ingrid Duran,...
  • These D.C. Pregnancy Centers, Labeled ‘Fake’ by Abortion Groups, Are Changing Women’s Lives

    Washington, D.C. - A new California law, pushed by abortion advocacy groups, could force pro-life pregnancy centers to risk serious fines unless they promote or refer for abortions against their beliefs. NARAL, one of the largest and most extreme abortion groups, has recently been targeting these centers by calling them "fake women’s health centers," claiming they mislead women with inaccurate information to prevent them from having abortions. As a Supreme Court case over the law looms, Townhall visited two pro-life pregnancy centers in D.C., that have been called 'fake' by NARAL, to get a firsthand look at the work that...

    Congressional Republicans unveiled legislation on Monday that would funnel billions of dollars to Obamacare markets, and hope the provision can be attached to the long-term government spending that's due Friday. The new bill would fund insurer payments known as cost-sharing reduction payments for three years, and offer $30 billion in reinsurance funds distributed evenly for three years...

    A new study reveals that 21,904 Americans have died while withering away on Medicaid waiting lists in states that expanded the program under Obamacare. The victims were poor and disabled applicants herded to the back of the line to make room for able-bodied adults with incomes above the federal poverty level (FPL). Why would any state pursue such a cruel and unjust policy? Obamacare incentivizes expansion states to shift Medicaid’s focus to able-bodied adults by paying over 90 percent of their coverage costs, while paying less than 60 percent of the costs for covering the truly poor and disabled. The...
  • Fmr Clinton Pollster Mark Penn: Conor Lamb Came Out Against Nancy Pelosi and Won

    Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn weighed in on Pennsylvania’s 16th congressional district special election result, crediting Rep.-elect Conor Lamb’s (D-PA) victory to the candidate going against the far left like Nancy Pelosi. “[A]fter so much talk that the party was moving to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders [the special Pennsylvania congressional election] really reaffirms the power of a centrist Democrat,” Penn told New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis. “I mean, Conor Lamb really took a lot of centrist positions. He backed a lot of what President Trump was saying. And he came out explicitly against...

    March 16, 2018 (Rorate Caeli) – It is always local situations that show how deep the problems in the Church are at the present time. The problematic issuances from Rome, Germany and Chicago are indeed disturbing, but to see how far things have gone, one must go to the local level of the Church: the diocese and the parish. Go to a typical parish Mass to see the fruit of the liturgical experiment of the post-Conciliar Church. The unmooring from the Tradition of the Church is plain to see in the carrying out of the deliberate misunderstanding of the Mass...

    Mississippi has become the first state in the U.S. to ban abortion at 15 weeks. Today, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant signed a law restricting abortions earlier than any other state in America. Bryant, a Republican, says that HB 1510 will help bring Mississippi closer to his goal of making the state “the safest place in America for an unborn child.” The law, which passed the State House of Representatives 80-31 on February 2 and the State Senate 35-14 on March 6, forbids abortions from being performed beyond fifteen weeks for any reason other than a “medical emergency,” defined as a...

    Every now and then, abortionists will admit publicly to the horrifying reality of what they do to unborn babies. On Sunday, Leah Torres, a Utah abortionist who is active on Twitter, responded with gruesome detail to someone criticizing her work. When someone asked Torres if she hears the screams of the babies who she aborts, she replied: “You know fetuses can’t scream, right? I transect the cord 1st so there’s really no opportunity, if they’re even far enough along to have a larynx. I won’t apologize for performing medicine. I’m also a ‘uterus ripper outer,’ if that’s how you’d like...

    LifeSiteNews has experienced the ire of the Ministry of Truth — a.k.a. Google: Google, the world’s most popular internet tool, has removed revenue-generating ads from select LifeSiteNews reports after it deemed that some of the content on the pro-life and pro-family website violated Google standards. Stories that were regarded as unacceptable by Google included a woman reporting on the sexual abuse she experienced growing up in an LGBT home, a piece featuring a baby born prematurely and looking conspicuously human, one with a video of another conspicuously human fetus still in the amniotic sac, and a story with no images...

    Pro-life students should walk out of class and stand outside praying for 54 minutes. One minute per each million of their fellow children who have been aborted. Make #54milliontoo their hashtag. They now have EVERY much a right to walk out as the useful idiots yesterday. Regardless of whether or not the school faculties give them their blessing. If the students aren't allowed to, take the school board to court on grounds of violating equal access of public facilities.

    A group of parents from New Milford, Connecticut has hired an attorney to articulate their concerns about the decision by their school district to allow students to participate in the national student walkout held Wednesday to advocate for gun control. In an email sent to Breitbart News, the parents – who wish to remain anonymous – argue the student walkout might appear to be a fairly innocuous First Amendment event to honor the students killed in the Parkland, Florida, shooting and to advocate for gun control. However, the parents add, the decision involves issues concerning “adherence to law and policy,...

    Dublin’s Archbishop Diarmuid Martin agrees with former Irish president Mary McAleese’s charge that the Irish are negative towards the Catholic Church because of its treatment of women. McAleese, Ireland’s president from 1997 to 2011, quoted the archbishop in her complaint about women in the Church. Martin said he was “happy” she did so. McAleese, who has long railed against the Church’s moral teachings on homosexuality and abortion and its ban on so-called women “priests,” tore into the hierarchy for its alleged discrimination against women at a Voices of Faith conference in Rome on International Women’s Day. She made headlines before...

    Last week, feminists defaced churches in the Catholic Archdiocese of Madrid with pro-abortion graffiti during a “feminist strike” as part of International Women’s Day. Before the protest, Madrid’s Cardinal Carlos Osoro expressed support for the event, going so far as to suggest that “the Virgin Mary would join the strikers.” “The churches of Espíritu Santo and San Cristóbal were covered in pro-abortion slogans, feminist symbols and blasphemous messages,” reported the UK Catholic Herald, “causing the Archdiocese of Madrid to issue a strong condemnation of the ‘attack on the heritage of the faithful.’”   The report continued: “The Archdiocese of Madrid expresses its sorrow and its...

    This could be the biggest lie of the election season . . . On CNN this morning, former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell called Conor Lamb “pro-life.” The truth is that Lamb, the Dem candidate in today’s special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district, has said he would have voted against a ban on abortions after 20 weeks, the point at which the unborn can feel pain. That makes Lamb radically pro-abortion, Ed. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    “Am I killing a baby if I get an abortion at 16 weeks?”The 2014 Baby Center message board thread started with a desperate cry for help from veronika4044, a young woman who felt her situation was impossible. She was too young, not ready, scared and unprepared in every way to mother.The replies from young moms were almost universal, with many offering encouragements for her specific difficulties and urging various alternatives. Yet, even those who identified as pro-choice were straightforward in giving the proper answer: yes, it is killing a baby. What do these women know that the rest of us seem...

    Meet Ammar Campa-Najjar, a 2018 primary candidate for California’s 50th Congressional District: According to his website, he’s just your run-of-the-mill southern California Democrat. He’s a gun-grabber from the word go, utterly dedicated to a woman’s right to murder the fruit of her womb, and celebrates the full range of possible psycho-sexual unions, including, generously, the one likely to bear such fruit. He favors Medicare for all without a hint of how to pay for it, and he demands the total abolition of any meaningful border between California and the drug cartels. Oh, yes -- he happens to be the grandson...
  • Washington Post Editor Advocates Eugenics Claiming It's Her Right to Kill Babies With Down Syndrome

    Washington Post deputy editorial page editor, Ruth Marcus, penned an op-ed yesterday defending the “right” to selectively kill babies inside the mother’s womb who have been diagnosed with Down syndrome. The piece is filled superfluous nonsense that matters neither here, nor there in the main point of her argument. Marcus is not defending killing babies due to perceived disabilities, but rather asserting her belief that a woman should be able to kill the baby inside her womb at anytime and for whatever reason, without question. “There is a new push in antiabortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women...

    Thoughtful pro-life Americans know that our greatest victories for the cause of the unborn have been made possible, in part, with help from a brave group of pro-life Democrats who have stood tall against members of their own party to do right by their most vulnerable constituents. The time-honored Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding of elective abortions and is estimated to have saved more than two million lives, initially passed in 1976 with support from more than 100 House Democrats and continues to enjoy bipartisan support as a policy rider to annual spending bills.Years later, the Partial Birth Abortion...

    There is a new push in antiabortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women from terminating their pregnancies after the fetus has been determined to have Down syndrome. These laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable — and wrong. This is a difficult subject to discuss because there are so many parents who have — and cherish — a child with Down syndrome. Many people with Down syndrome live happy and fulfilled lives. The new Gerber baby with Down syndrome is awfully cute. I have had two children; I was old enough, when I became pregnant, that it made sense to...

    Proposals are being drawn up on “the nature and scope” of introducing a free contraceptive service, Minister for Health Simon Harris has said. He said he would seek approval in a few weeks for a series of measures to further support women and improve access to counseling, contraception and perinatal care. “If our underlying principle is that abortion should be safe, legal and rare, then we must do all we can to reduce the number of crisis pregnancies and to support women in every way,” Mr. Harris added. The Minister was introducing in the Dáil on Friday the Thirty-Sixth Amendment...
