    Last year, Philadelphia abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell stood trial in Philadelphia for the deaths of one woman and seven babies who had their throats slit, but national reporters didn't want to cover it. It's a "local crime story," they said. Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple said that when he asked national reporters about avoiding the Gosnell story, the typical response was "Get out of my face with this agenda-driven stuff, and come back when you have a real story." Ferguson, Missouri, is merely the latest proof that a "local crime story" can be elevated to national news -- when...

    Over the last three weeks, MIT professor and Affordable Care Act (ACA) architect Jonathan Gruber has gone from being an academic, known mostly in policy circles, to the face of political dishonesty and manipulation. Gruber, who helped create and sell the ACA to the American people, has been caught on tape admitting—on multiple occasions—that the law was written to mislead the public.But that’s not all that he’s done. As originally reported by Jerome Corsi, Gruber is the author of at least two separate reports arguing that legalized abortion has tremendous social benefit.

    Sea Change, a pro-abortion program with a focus on reducing the stigma surrounding abortion has released the results of a recent survey on the public sharing of abortion stories. The aim of the study and report, called Saying Abortion Aloud, was to find out how post-abortive women feel about sharing their abortion stories publicly, and what pro-abortion organizations can do to help these women share their stories in order to make society even more supportive of abortion. While the pro-life movement knows that abortion is a moral wrong and is working to make it a legal wrong, this survey from...

    Abortionist Curtis Boyd, who has been committing abortions since before they were legalized in 1973, was featured Friday by UK-based publication The Guardian in a piece on American abortionists. The tone of the piece is one of shock and dismay that America has grown more pro-life, rather than more accepting of the tenets of Roe v. Wade, since 1973. To drive this point home, the piece includes this startling infographic from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute displaying the radical pro-life shift in opinion as evidenced by legislative restrictions on abortion. For The Guardian and for abortionists like Boyd Americas lack of...

    Last week’s Time Magazine expose, 6 Myths About Abortion, is part of the abortion industry’s rebranding effort, as they seek to move away from the always-false “pro-choice” language toward the more diabolically honest pro-abortion approach. Hence the need to do away with certain facts that are inconvenient for the pro-abortion crowd, recasting them as “myths.”In examining the first “myth,” the claim that the Bible forbids abortion, author Katha Pollitt rather quickly betrays her actual intent — to get Christians to look away from the Bible:  “It shouldn’t matter what the Bible says about abortion…he [Jesus] said nothing about abortion. Neither did Saint Paul,...

But while some of her books have been best-sellers, the truth is that you dont need to buy one of them to see Atwood spin a fictional yarn. Instead, just watch her recent interview with PBS Charlie Rose. In 1985, Atwood came out with The Handmaidens Tale, the story of a dystopian future where women live as second class citizens. When Rose asked her why the book remains popular, Atwood said it was due in part to...

    New York, NY (CFAM) There are more young people in the world now than ever before. According to the United Nations Population Funds latest report, this represents an unprecedented opportunity for progress, but only if future generations are smaller.

[Y]oung people require a wide range of sexual and reproductive health services, including . . . safe abortion care, says the 2014 State of World Population, released Tuesday....

    A nationally-known pro-abortion activist has been arrested on charges of raping a 15-year-old boy. Terrance Patrick Bean is the founder of Human Rights Campaign, a group that pushes other political issues but also takes a steadfastly pro-abortion position. Human Rights Campaign, in addition to advancing abortion, has also lobbied Congress to end all federal funding for abstinence education, and hailed one piece of legislation that cut off funding because it would end abstinence-only-until-marriage programs once and for all. Bean is also a prominent supporter of pro-abortion President Barack Obama. The Portland Oregonian newspaper has more on Beans indictment, reporting that...

    Overthe last sixyears, I have met many differentkinds of people. I have met the radicals, theimpartials, and the unsure.I have met people who range all across the spectrum between 'choice' and life.A common trend I have seen, both in those who consider themselves pro-life and those who advocate for abortion, is the inclusion of the rape exception intheir beliefs. I often hear people say things such as, "I think abortion is wrong, except in extreme cases like rape." Let me begin addressing this issue by summarizing what we know about the unborn: they are alive andthey are human. These are...

    A Michigan abortion practitioner who botched an abortion on a woman in her second trimester and left her decapitated unborn baby inside her has had his medical license suspended. Robert Alexanders abortion clinic was shut down in December 2013 by the city of Muskegon, Michigan after unsafe and unsanitary conditions were found. But that wasnt the only issue. Dr. Alexander perforated the womans uterus so badly that it was hanging on by two blood vessels, another physician said in testimony about what happened in the late-term abortion. The decapitated head of a fetus was in the womans abdomen and the...

    I have always been fascinated with the actress, model, spokeswoman, and author Brooke Shields. She has always seemed a compelling mix of wholesomeness and glamour, forthrightness and mystery. An 80s icon, she defined beauty and elegance. She socialized with living legends such as pop star Michael Jackson and tennis great Andre Agassi. I even worked with a TV producer who, during his time as a piano accompanist, had worked with Shields on a musical number. He said she was the most beautiful woman he had ever met. From an outsiders point of view, she seemed to live a charmed life....

    The pro-abortion fanatics from the activist group Femen are at it again. This time they took to St. Peters Square at the Vatican to make their views known and grab attention. Not only did they bare their breasts at the home of the Catholic Church, they simulated anal sex using crucifixes. Authorities quickly arrested them. Femen, the womens rights group known for topless protests, took their act to a new level of provocation on Friday with an explicitly sexually suggestive demonstration in front of the Vatican. In what they described as a protest over Pope Franciss upcoming visit to...

    Northern Irelands most prominent anti-abortion activist was convicted Wednesday of harassing the director of Belfasts only abortion clinic in the latest chapter of a bitter two-year confrontation. Bernadette Smyth, leader of the Precious Life group, was convicted on two counts of threatening Dawn Purvis, who runs British family planning service Marie Stopes Belfast branch. It is the only such clinic on the island of Ireland, where abortion is legal only in extreme cases where a womans life is deemed at risk from her pregnancy.
