    Judge orders Trump administration to allow abortion for undocumented teen By Maria Sacchetti October 18 at 4:32 PM A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the U.S. government to allow an undocumented teenager in its custody to have an abortion, after saying she was “astounded” the Trump administration was trying to prevent the procedure. Lawyers for Attorney General Jeff Sessions signaled to U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington that the 17-year-old, who crossed the border from Mexico illegally last month, did not have a constitutional right to an elective abortion in federal custody, unless it was a medical emergency....

    Pro-abortion feminists in Argentina staged a violent, topless protest Sunday to demand taxpayer-funded abortions and cultural acceptance of prostitution. Crux reports protesters vandalized several buildings, including a Catholic cathedral in Argentina during the pro-abortion “Boob Protest.” Local news reports indicate the pro-abortion protesters threw rocks, a Molotov cocktail, bottles, tampons and feces, as well as balloons filled with paint. They also painted walls with messages such as “Death to the pope” and “Lesbianize yourself.” The South American country protects unborn babies’ right to life in most cases. However, abortion activists met with legislators in September to push a new bill...
  • English bishop: you cannot be Catholic and support abortion

    Bishop Michael Campbell said it was a 'foundational issue' for the faith and there is 'no getting around it.' Catholics cannot claim to be true to their faith if they do not support Church teaching on abortion, a bishop has said. Bishop Michael Campbell of Lancaster said abortion was a “foundational issue”, quoting Pope Francis who said: “We are called to defend and safeguard human life, especially in the mother’s womb, in infancy, old age and physical or mental disability.” “Sadly,” Bishop Campbell added, “The price of admission into mainstream British life has meant that we somehow keep the Catholic...

    A tweet from Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) that mentioned Planned Parenthood’s sales of aborted baby parts led to Twitter blocking a campaign ad in her bid for a US Senate seat in her state. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey labeled Blackburn’s tweet “inflammatory and likely to evoke a strong negative reaction. On the one hand, there’s the woman who already has to deal with the emotionally difficult decision to terminate her pregnancy. Awareness that her baby might be cannibalized and sold for parts like a junked car would add unnecessary trauma to that decision.” “On the other hand, there is potential...

    On September 14th, the right-wing pundit Ann Coulter, who last year published a book titled “In Trump We Trust,” expressed what a growing number of Americans, including conservatives, have been feeling since the 2016 election. The previous day, President Trump had dined with Democratic leaders at the White House, and had impetuously agreed to a major policy reversal, granting provisional residency to undocumented immigrants who came to America as children. Republican legislators were blindsided. Within hours, Trump disavowed the deal, then reaffirmed it. Coulter tweeted, “At this point, who doesn’t want Trump impeached?” She soon added, “If we’re not getting...

    FULL TITLE: Abortion Activists Dress in Creepy “Handmaid’s Tale” Costumes to Protest Trump Protecting Pro-Life Christians Dressed in red robes from the dystopian novel “Handmaid’s Tale,” abortion activists protested Saturday against the pro-life policies of the Donald Trump administration. A small group protested on the steps of the Washington State Capitol in Olympia, wearing red robes and white hoods and claiming they are being oppressed because pro-life advocates are trying to keep unborn babies from being killed. According to Crosscut, similar protests were scheduled across the United States as part of a “50 Handmaids in 50 States” event. Abortion activists...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed legislation Sunday that could have forced churches, Christian schools and pro-life organizations to employ abortion supporters. California Assembly Bill 569 would have prohibited employers from requiring their employees to follow a moral code of conduct, such as no sex outside of marriage and no abortions. It also would have prohibited employers from disciplining or firing employees for actions that violate the mission or beliefs of the group. The bill did not provide any exceptions for employers, meaning pro-life organizations, churches, religious schools and faith-based groups could have been forced to keep on employees whose actions...

However, that opening, set for October 17, 2017, will be met with a strong and unified pro-life response. A press conference and rally, sponsored by the Maryland Coalition for Life and a group of activists with the @StopCarhart coalition, will be held on opening day at noon on the sidewalk outside the new office located...

    OHIO VALLEY — A clip of actress Martha Plimpton’s exuberance over the “best” abortion she has ever had played on the television above a gas-station counter somewhere along U.S. Route 422 between Ohio and Pennsylvania. A woman with a name tag designating her as the manager rolled her eyes and said to no one in particular as she went about stacking the shelves behind the counter, “And they wonder why people don’t vote for Democrats around here anymore.” Plimpton, age 46, is best known for her role in the 1980s Steven Spielberg classic kid adventure movie The Goonies. She made...

    Five years ago at the Democratic National Convention, I went to a Planned Parenthood rally, where one speaker was TV actress Lisa Edelstein. “Do not go to the polls alone,” she told us. “Drag somebody, if she’s a woman especially, because those women are going to vote for Obama—if they know what’s good for them.” Edelstein is hardly the only Hollywood figure to make the case that liberal policies are crucial to women’s happiness and welfare. Yet, with the media still reeling from the revelations about powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s behavior toward women, it’s time to examine both the...

    Please join me on a whirlwind superficial but revealing tour of liberal la-la land as we peek at recent headlines. Meanwhile, liberals call conservatives wingnuts. Singer Nancy Sinatra tweeted, "The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad." One wonders whether in her rendering, "murderous" is redundant. One might also wonder whether she thinks other murderous people should be exempt from or perhaps face a less humiliating form of execution. Responding to Michelle Obama's claim that people are distrustful of politics because the GOP is "all men, all white," Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, said, "I don't know if...

    For many Americans, the crucial moment of last year’s election came during the last debate in which Hillary Clinton clarified her support for radical abortion policies such as partial-birth abortion, while Donald Trump stood for protecting life. Now, almost a year later, voters can see the results of their investment in the president. The Trump administration has made great strides to protect the innocent through proposed conscience protections, support of the House of Representatives’ Pain-Capable bill, and a statement of support for the Down syndrome community. Last week, the Departments of Health and Human Services, Treasury and Labor announced two...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards: “Why Should Christians be Able to Impose Their Views on Women?” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards claimed Monday evening, at a conference in D.C., that progressives can’t “take back political power if we don’t also stand up every single day for reproductive healthcare including safe and legal abortion in America.” The conference was hosted by the State Innovation Exchange (SiX), an organization that “supports state legislators in advancing and defending progressive policies across the country.” The remark was likely prompted by some recent discussion within the Democratic party over whether abortion should be...

Rupa Huq, the MP for Ealing Central and Acton, told a fringe meeting at the Labour Party conference that pro-life protesters were “weaponising rosary beads” outside a clinic in her constituency. HuffPost UK quotes her as saying: “We have a Marie Stopes clinic in Ealing and for as long as I can remember, there has been a constant phoney vigil outside the clinic, with people stopping women going...

Additionally, certain types of organizations would also be able to deny this coverage on moral grounds. If allowed to go forward, President Trump’s rules could have a significant impact on the more than 1.5 million Washington workers and their dependents who receive...

    While the national media narrative of abortion focuses on the women, babies, protestors, and the vast political tangential impacts of defunding Planned Parenthood, contraception mandates, and the Supreme Court, one group of individuals consistently is left completely out of the conversation: the abortion workers themselves.Sometimes abortionists will snatch the spotlight, often not in positive stories, like late-term abortionists Kermit Gosnell or LeRoy Carhart. But what about the unseen nurses, counselors, secretaries, managers, and janitors, all of whom make their living at abortion clinics around the nation? What of their stories?There are an estimated 3,200 abortion workers currently in this country....

    Tennessee Episcopal Priest Kira Schlesinger believes so strongly in legalized abortion that she wrote a book to reconcile her Christian beliefs with the killing of unborn babies. In her new book “Pro-Choice and Christian: Reconciling Faith, Politics, and Justice,” Schlesinger criticizes churches that “shame” and stigmatize women who abort their unborn babies. She said church congregations should have more open conversations about abortion, and support women who have them. “The shame and stigma surrounding abortion and unwanted pregnancies, particularly in religious circles, are a huge impediment to having honest and forthright discussions about something nearly a third of women have...

    The View’s Sunny Hostin is “pro-choice,” whether she admits it or not, according to her co-hosts. On Thursday, The View ladies slammed Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) after a report revealed that the politician, a member of the House Pro-Life Caucus, encouraged his mistress to have an abortion. Both Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg took the opportunity to insist that their co-host, Sunny Hostin, was pro-choice because, they said, she wouldn’t “vote to overturn Roe v. Wade” or tell someone else “you can’t” have an abortion. They wouldn’t take no for an answer, even when Hostin stressed she would likely advise...
