    Before I moved to Jerusalem, I was very pro-Palestinian. Almost everyone I knew was. I grew up Protestant in a quaint, politically correct New England town; almost everyone around me was liberal. And being liberal in America comes with a pantheon of beliefs: You support pluralism, tolerance and diversity. You support gay rights, access to abortion and gun control. The belief that Israel is unjustly bullying the Palestinians is an inextricable part of this pantheon. Most progressives in the US view Israel as an aggressor, oppressing the poor noble Arabs who are being so brutally denied their freedom. []...

    PARIS, France, February 17, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) The French National Assembly has adopted legislation to make what it calls spreading misleading information about abortion punishable with up to a two-year prison sentence and a fine. The law specifically targets electronic and online means of spreading information with the intention of dissuading women from ending their pregnancy, but its wording is not restrictive. By and large, any person or group aiming to call public attention to the dangers and risks of abortion will be potentially at risk of prosecution. Thursdays vote was the final stage of a lawmaking process that saw...

    We are hopeful this bill is a step towards ultimately defunding the nation's abortion giant. In a dramaticpro-life victory, the U.S. House of Representatives votedThursdayto allow states to decide whether or not to fund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers with federal dollars. The 229-188 vote effectively repeals an Obama administration rule from December. As a registered nurse, I know that vulnerable women seeking true comprehensive care deserve better than abortion-centric facilities like Planned Parenthood, Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), who introduced the resolution, stated before its Feb. 16 passage. The Department of Health and Human Services issued a rule in...

Students saw the signs as they walked out of school. The group, Created Equal, said its goal is to talk to students about the dangers of abortion. "We are outside the high schools to present all the evidence. We want students to have the full facts about what abortion does so they can make an informers choice," said Seth Drayer, who is the Director of Training for Created Equal.

    The House voted Thursday to make it easier for states to deny federal family-planning funds to groups such as Planned Parenthood that also perform abortions. A rule imposed by the Obama administration says that states cannot deny funding to clinics for reasons unrelated to their ability to provide basic family planning services. Federal dollars cannot be used to pay for abortions, except in restricted circumstances. Tennessee Rep. Diane Black and other Republicans said the rule, finalized in December, unfairly restricts how states can spend federal family-planning funds.

    A proposal which would force women to get permission from their sexual partner to allow them to have an abortion has passed the first hurdle in Oklahoma. The bill would mean women needed written consent from a man for a doctor to carry out a termination. The bill's author, state legislator Justin Humphrey, who has described pregnant women as "hosts", said it would give the father a "say-so". Critics say it degrades women. The fact Oklahoma lawmakers decided to move the measure toward a full vote by the legislature comes at a time the anti-abortion movement is growing bolder under...

Addressing participants of Italys fifth annual March for Life this past Sunday, Pope Francis encouraged the crowd to pray for the babies who are at risk of the interruption of pregnancy. In order to ensure that there was no translation error, we found an Italian news source for the comments, and a video of Pope Francis giving the address. Beginning at the 0:45...

    February 9, 2017 (TheBridgehead) -- Due to relentless influences from Hollywood and progressive activists, many people now believe that Christians are hateful people. Specifically, Christians are hateful because Christianity forbids a broad range of sexual behaviors, and secular progressives have decided that this makes Christians homophobic. This term can be applied willy-nilly and irrespective of whether or not Christians do, in fact, fear or hate gay people. If Christians cannot agree that the definition of marriage can be arbitrarily changed after thousands of years, for example, this is indicative that Christians are desperately in need of the one quality progressives...

In his message the Holy Father does speak some welcome words, encouraging “courageous educational action in favour of human life” and reminding the gathered crowds that “every life is sacred”. Unfortunately rather than refer to abortion he adopts terminology used by the abortion industry. In fact, the form of words used by Pope Francis is specifically condemned by Pope John Paul II in his encyclical letter Evangelium Vitae:“Especially in...

    In the aftermath of the March for Life and in anticipation of dull feminist caterwauling over a conservative pick to fill Justice Scalia's Supreme Court seat, it is useful to consider precisely what Roe v. Wade did and what it did not do. Leslie Marshall recently said on Fox News that if Roe v. Wade is overturned, then women will have only three states in which to get an abortion. Actually, at the time of Roe v. Wade, abortion was "legal" in almost every state in cases of rape and incest, as well as when the life of the...

Ehrlich, a supporter of forced sterilization and forced abortion, has epitomized the ecologists position for decades in his apocalyptic (and false) predictions about the effects of population growth. Sponsored and organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS) and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PASS), the three-day conference also includes other controversial speakers besides Ehrlich, author of the Population Bomb. Several presenters have similar, if less well-known pedigrees, as proponents of population...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has made some pretty outrageous statements about abortion in the past. During a recent CNN Town Hall event, Pelosi stuck her foot in her mouth again when she told a young woman who was adopted that her mother should have had the choice to abort her. I am part of the pro-life generation, college student Brianna Kristyn Roberts told Pelosi. I believe that abortion is not the answer for unplanned pregnancy.
  • Report Shows Evidence of Coerced Abortions, Safety Violations at UK Abortion Clinics

    A government inspection has found that the United Kingdoms largest abortion chain, Marie Stopes International (MSI), was coercing women to abort and violating safety procedures, leading them to suspend nearly half of the abortions they were performing. More than 2,600 violations were found, according to inspectors. The inspections were detailed in a report published in December by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The report included a letter from the Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Professor Sir Mike Richards, stating that in order to avoid urgent enforcement action by the CQC, Marie Stopes voluntarily agreed to: Suspension of the termination of pregnancy...

    The circumstances surrounding the resignation of the Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, and the appointment of a papal delegate to assist in the renewal of the order, raises further questions about the extent to which Pope Francis assents to the teaching of the Catholic Church on questions of sexual ethics. In this article we will revisit previous concerns regarding Pope Franciss position on contraception, in the light of recent events. At the heart of the crisis in the Order of Malta is the distribution of contraceptives and abortifacient drugs, over a number of years, by Malteser...

    An experienced healthcare policy researcher observes that the Obamacare replacement plan put forward by Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) not only would allow for taxpayer funding of abortion, but would actually expand its funding over that provided in the original Obamacare law. Writing at The Federalist, Christopher Jacobs, founder and CEO of the Washington, D.C.-based Juniper Research Group, says the Patient Freedom Act (PFA) sends a strikingly different message from that demonstrated in House Republicans recent approval of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017.

    The woman behind recent videos that decimate Planned Parenthoods claim that it needs to receive taxpayer dollars to meet vital prenatal needs says congressional Republicans are poised to remove funding from the nations largest abortion provider and Democrats will be powerless to stop it. On Tuesday, Live Action released a video showing activists calling Planned Parenthood clinics all around the U.S. seeking an ultrasound to ensure the health of their unborn children. Time after time, the Planned Parenthood workers explain that the clinics only use ultrasounds in preparation for abortions and not to confirm a pregnancy or evaluate the health...

    To listen to Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards on todays Morning Joe, youd think her organization was mainly about health care for womennot about being the nations largest abortion provider. As youll see in the video clip, Richards manages to mention health care seven times in her interview with Mika Brzezinski. The word abortion only passes Richards lips twice. The first time, to insist that the federal government doesnt pay for abortions [as if the federal funds PP receives arent fungible], and the second to claim that to reduce the abortion rate, more access to PP should be promoted.

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business was quick to announce its opposition to President Donald Trumps Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Trump nominated the federal appeals Court Judge yesterday with strong support from pro-life organizations that point to his track record as supporting religious freedom for pro-life organizations refusing to be forced to pay for abortions. They also noted his opposition to assisted suicide and his support for a state fighting to defund Planned Parenthood abortion business. Now the nations largest abortion corporation is launching a massive campaign to stop Gorsuchs nomination. The pro-abortion group says he should not be confirmed...

    Teen Vogue is doing its best to push its pro-abortion agenda on young, impressionable minds. This week, the magazine ran a column by the Rev. Broderick L. Greer, an Episcopal priest who advocates for abortion. Greer argued that Christians should support women in their decisions to have abortion, rather than judge them. And that is where the Church can find its point of entry: in offering people making these decisions every measure of mercy they need to live wise and whole lives, Greer wrote. It is the act of looking people in the eye and saying, I trust you. I...
