    Supporters of Planned Parenthood are trying to boost the abortion giant’s shaky bottom line by selling sex toys, uterus-themed emojis and sex-positive wrapping paper. The merchandise may be X-rated, but abortion opponents say it’s just another argument in favor of weaning Planned Parenthood off taxpayer funding.

    The Canadian PM urged his Irish counterpart to support 'reproductive rights'Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has told his Irish counterpart that abortion in Ireland should be a “human right”. At a three-day meeting between Mr Trudeau and Leo Varadkar, the Irish taoiseach, the two leaders spoke about Mr Varadkar’s plan to hold a referendum next year to repeal the Eighth Amendment to the Irish constitution, which protects the right to life of the unborn child. “We discussed the issue of abortion, which I know is an important issue for a lot of campaigners for women’s rights in Canada,” the taoiseach...

    “Godwin’s Law of Nazi Analogies” hold that “as an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.” Attorney Mike Godwin, who coined the self-named law, explained “the comparisons trivialize the horror of the Holocaust and the social pathology of the Nazis.” But what if the Nazi analogy is apt, such as when white supremacists march under the flag of the Third Reich? Some posed that question to Godwin after the violence at this month’s march in Charlottesville left scores injured and three dead—including two law enforcement officers killed in a helicopter crash while...

    Iceland Is Not Alone in “Freezing Out” the Disabled Msgr. Charles Pope • August 20, 2017 • Most of you have probably heard or read the reports trumpeting the “eradication” of Down syndrome in Iceland). The problem is that what is being termed “eradicating” the “problem” actually means that those with Down syndrome are being put to death. The celebratory language is all too similar to the way we once spoke of wiping out malaria by killing infected mosquitoes. But of course children in the womb are not mosquitoes; they are human beings, love and willed by God. Imagine...

    The Wander Press ^ | August 19, 2017 | Christopher Manion
    The Wanderer reported last week that Bishop Mark Seitz of El Paso treats pro-abortion Catholic politicians with kid gloves even as he harshly condemns pro-life officials who oppose Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens. Within days of our report, the bishop doubled down, insisting that, since Jesus agrees with him, anyone who opposes amnesty “cannot call himself or herself Catholic” because they don’t express “the compassion of Jesus.” On the other hand, seen through the complex lens of the Seitz Syndrome, the bishop’s congressman, state senator, and state representative can call themselves Catholic, even though they are 100 percent pro-abortion “rights.”...

    When Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was Speaker of the House for four years (2007-2010), at least 709,885 black babies were killed by abortion, which is 35.4% of all the abortions during those years, according to the Abortion Surveillance reports of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). […] There were a total 1,918,419 abortions during those four years. Blacks make up 13.3% of the U.S. population, according to the Census Bureau. In 2015, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, presented then-Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award. The award is Planned Parenthood’s “highest honor” and is named...

    Parents and pro-life advocates urged a Pennsylvania school board Wednesday to reject a proposal to put a Planned Parenthood-run facility inside Reading High School. The Reading Eagle reports the facility would not do abortions at the high school, but Planned Parenthood staffers would offer students sex education, counseling about reproductive health and referrals to their abortion facility in Reading. Pro-lifers with Students for Life, the Pennsylvania Family Institute and others have been joining local parents to protest the proposal in the past few months. On June 21, about 80 pro-life advocates stood outside the Reading School District to urge the...

    The Chinese news outlet Global Times is reporting that a monk who saves babies from abortion and then brings them up has come into conflict with authorities. Master Daolu, a former businessman turned monk, believes, like many Buddhists, that the baby has a soul fm conception, and that abortion is murder. However, he doesn’t just persuade women not to have abortions – he provides shelter and care for them and their babies.

    Video game reviewers at Touch Arcade stumbled upon a sick new game app that will allow players to kill unborn babies in abortions. The “Abortion Simulator” is being developed by Kierun Studios, a company based in India that has a reputation for reprehensible games, according to the review. The game “will put you right in the middle of the surgery room and let you perform various abortions,” from early-term to “24+ week complex cases,” the developer describes. It appears that players actually will use surgical tools to reach into the womb and tear the unborn baby out in pieces. Screen...

    A group of artists in Colorado are working on special “reproductive health”-themed art – including a tampon chandelier – to raise money for the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. Women’s Caucus for Art Colorado member Linda Gleitz told the Daily Camera that she is passionate about supporting Planned Parenthood. She is helping to organize the art fundraiser for the abortion business. Gleitz said artists from her group are making a variety of pieces to sell, many of them donating 100 percent of their profits to the abortion chain. The fundraiser also will include a poetry reading and music. “We do have...

    The removal of Confederate statues around the United States has prompted a fiery debate. On one side, many argue that the statues represent history and should be left where they are, lest we forget the significance of the era in which they were erected. On the flip side, some argue that the statues are racist and have no place in modern society. But why are proponents of the latter viewpoint only upset about certain statues and not others? Why, for example, is the bust of racist Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in the Smithsonian Museum not one of the statues...

    You want to denounce Nazis? Here you go, America. Don't tell me again about the moral imperative to denounce Nazis if you're going to let this slide. As Rob mentioned to me when we were discussing who would write this up, the essence of Hitler's eugenics program was to filter out children who didn't have the traits deemed optimal for the Aryan race. Horrifying? Obviously. You'd have a fit if they started aborting babies for having brown skin, or - if there was some way you could tell - for being gay. And you should have that fit. But you...

    With the rise of prenatal screening tests across Europe and the United States, the number of babies born with Down syndrome has significantly decreased, but few countries have come as close to eradicating Down syndrome births as Iceland. Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women -- close to 100 percent -- who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.

    Video at link. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) criticized a CBS News report revealing Iceland's practice of aborting babies suspected to have Down Syndrome. Palin, whose son Trig was born with Down Syndrome in 2008, said the practice is abhorrent. "To try to snuff out a life, in the name of building a perfect race... hearkens back to Nazi Germany," she said.

    CBS reported Sunday that the majority of expecting mothers in the country or “close to 100 percent” who received a positive test for Down syndrome “terminated their pregnancy.” The network tweeted on Sunday, "Iceland is on pace to virtually eliminate Down syndrome through abortion. #CBSNOA learns more, tonight at 10pm ET/PT." The 59-year-old actress took to Twitter with a heated reply, taking aim at the wording of the CBS tweet and Iceland in the process. "Iceland isn't actually eliminating Down Syndrome. They're just killing everybody that has it. Big difference," she wrote.

Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women -- close to 100 percent -- who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.

    Brooke “Skylar” Richardson, an Ohio teen, landed in court last week for killing, burning and burying her newborn daughter, birthed a day or two after the school prom in May. She pleaded, “Not Guilty.” No big deal; we’ve been legally killing kids since 1973. If she hadn’t been so distracted preparing for prom, a quick trip to Planned Parenthood the day before would have done the trick with no negative ramifications. What difference does a day make?

    As a psychiatrist, the recent false accusations from Rome against faithful Catholics reminds me of couples preparing to divorce. False accusations of hostility, divisiveness and hatred occur not infrequently in marriages with high levels of conflict and with impending separation or divorce. When of an extremely severe nature, such anger can lead to demonizing a spouse in an effort to undermine the trust of the children in that spouse and to obtain their loyalty instead. This pathological behavior is referred to as parental alienation and is clearly psychologically damaging to Catholic youth, spouses and families. Spouses who make false accusations against...

    Two teen babysitters are facing child endangerment and assault charges after a disturbing video was reportedly posted online that appeared to show them laughing while putting a crying baby into a refrigerator and shutting the door, authorities said. The girls, whose names were not released because they’re juveniles, were babysitting the infant in Danvers on Monday when the shocking video was posted to Snapchat, according to published reports. The video, which was picked up by news outlets around the country, appeared to show the girls putting the crying infant sideways into a shelf inside the refrigerator, closing the door and...
