Bush's public appearance before the group is striking, given that her father, President George W. Bush, was...

    More than 10,000 names were delivered to the Vatican this week from people across the world opposed to notorious population control zealot Paul Ehrlich speaking at a Pontifical Academy of Sciences conference. LifeSiteNews Rome correspondent Jan Bentz brought a petition with 10,710 names to the Vatican on Monday asking Pope Francis to stop plans for the pro-abortion and anti-Catholic Ehrlich to address a symposium titled “Biological Extinction” set for next week. In addition to asking the Holy Father to stop Ehrlich from speaking at the Vatican conference, the LifeSite petition requests that the pope clarify that the Vatican does not...

    A controversial move by a Rome hospital to hire two specialist abortion doctors — because the majority of Italian doctors refuse to carry out the procedure — has caused an outcry. On Thursday, the president of Rome’s order of physicians, Giuseppe Lavra, asked Lazio’s regional governor to repeal the "unjust and discriminatory" call for two pro-abortion gynecologists. The governor, Nicola Zingaretti, had planned for the two doctors to be hired at Rome’s San Camillo hospital — one of the largest in the capital — where they would be tasked specifically with carrying out abortions. Zingaretti wrote in his blog that...

    We’re nearing the end of the day, and as promised earlier, I did want to talk about the interview the New York Times Magazine conducted with itinerant abortionist, Willie Parker. As you need to know about the magazine’s motivation is in the headline: “Willie J. Parker Changed His Mind About Abortion.” Of course, it goes without saying (since Ana Marie Cox is writing for the New York Times Magazine), Parker’s “conversion” is from “someone who, for religious reasons, didn’t want to provide abortion” to becoming a practicing abortionist who flies into a location and takes the lives of up to...

    Sometimes even the fact checkers need fact checked. The pro-abortion bias of the popular fact checking website Snopes came through recently when it claimed pro-lifers are wrong to say Planned Parenthood lied about providing prenatal care. Snopes rated the claim “mostly false,” arguing that Planned Parenthood never said it provides prenatal care at all its centers. It also claims Planned Parenthood leaders did not emphasize prenatal care as a primary service, and pro-lifers took their comments out of context. The fact check is based on a new Live Action investigation showing employees at the Planned Parenthood abortion business denying women...

    Pro-life obstetricians understand that a pregnant woman isn't the only patient, and now medical ability allows them to act on what science has already confirmed with earlier treatments for unborn and premature babies. A study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine on February 16, 2017, from Duke Health of more than 4,000 babies born between 22 and 24 weeks shows more of those infants are surviving and with fewer neurological difficulties. Dr. Donna Harrison, executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, says while that should be celebrated, it also should cause one to pause...

    A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Texas can't cut off Medicaid dollars to Planned Parenthood over secretly recorded videos taken by anti-abortion activists in 2015 that launched Republican efforts across the U.S. to defund the nation's largest abortion provider. An injunction issued by U.S. District Sam Sparks of Austin comes after he delayed making decision in January and essentially bought Planned Parenthood an extra month in the state's Medicaid program. Texas is now at least the sixth state where federal courts have kept Planned Parenthood eligible for Medicaid reimbursements for non-abortion services, although a bigger question remains over whether President...

    Norma McCorvey, who passed away Saturday, didn’t go see attorney Sarah Weddington out of any desire to legalize abortion. She literally went to see her because she was hungry. They met together in a pizza parlor. Norma didn’t even know the meaning of the word “abortion.” She never got the help she was seeking for her third pregnancy, and ended up making an adoption plan for the baby girl who was born. She never appeared in court, and she found out about the outcome of Roe vs. Wade like everyone else did — in the morning paper. Having been exploited...

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. […]...

Put simply, the super mind is a deeper intelligence than our conscious mind. It perceives reality in far more detail than the conscious mind and is an expert at observing...

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. Thursday’s 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 dramatic pro-life victory, the U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday to 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...

    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 a piece published Wednesday, New York Times Magazine columnist Ana Marie Cox interviewed Willie J. Parker, a Mississippi abortionist and former Planned Parenthood medical director, on his upcoming Life’s Work memoir. During the interview, Parker pointed to his faith as the reason he performs abortions. And while abortion is “life-ending,” he added, it isn’t “killing a person” – just a “human entity.” From the very beginning, Cox hyped that Parker’s book “is rooted” by his “moral and spiritual argument in...

    Kermit Gosnell shows no remorse for his abominable actions in his Philadelphia abortion clinic, actions which have him serving multiple life sentences. Gosnell, a late-term abortionist, was found guilty of murdering babies by snipping their necks, and faced charges for racketeering and blatantly ignoring abortion laws. At least one patient died in his clinic due to his neglect. Townhall recently brought you an interview with the authors of Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer, a bestselling book on Amazon. His crimes are also described in detail in the documentary 3801 Lancaster: American Tragedy. The documentary, directed...

    One abortionist is revealing his abortion religion – and one New York Times writer couldn’t get enough of it. In a piece published Wednesday, New York Times Magazine columnist Ana Marie Cox interviewed Willie J. Parker, a Mississippi abortionist and former Planned Parenthood medical director, on his upcoming Life’s Work memoir. During the interview, Parker pointed to his faith as the reason he performs abortions. And while abortion is “life-ending,” he added, it isn’t “killing a person” – just a “human entity.” From the very beginning, Cox hyped that Parker’s book “is rooted” by his “moral and spiritual argument in...

    February 3, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Forget most of the complaints and accusations against Donald Trump you are hearing these days. There is a growing, ugly and violent war being waged against the Trump administration and conservatives in general. Most of that war is being orchestrated and funded by massively-financed elites of one general movement – the several decades old movement for an aggressively secular, borderless, de-populationist New World Order and world government. I strongly urge watching the video below produced by Remnant TV. It provides crucial context. I believe, based on all that I have seen, read and experienced for...

    Forget jail. She deserves a roundhouse kick to the face by King Kong. About 8 times. Because liberals are generally irrational deviants, and because pro-infanticide liberals are particularly rabid, things like this should be expected. A story out of Ashland, Oregon is turning stomachs, and it involves a confrontation during a pro-life protest outside of an Oregon Planned Parenthood clinic.

    Bakersfield, CA – In two separate incidents, ambulances transported two abortion patients from FPA Women’s Health in Bakersfield, California. The emergency transports took place on Saturday, February, 4, 2017, within less than one hour of each other. The women were taken to different nearby hospitals. The abortionist on duty was Donald Clyde Willis, who has a history of mental disorders that led to a violent suicide attempt. The latest two ambulance transports represent the third and fourth abortion-related medical emergencies involving Willis since he began working at the Bakersfield facility approximately three months ago. During the first incident, Hall Ambulance...

    Voice of the Family ^ | February 7, 2017
    Pope Francis has marked the “day for life” in Italy by adopting the abortion lobby’s euphemism “interruption of pregnancy” in place of language that accurately describes the killing of unborn children. 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...

    Does pizza make a great motivator to end a pregnancy? The latest video from Live Action features former Planned Parenthood managers discussing the financial pressure put on clinics to maximize the revenue stream from their core business — abortions. The pressure wasn’t just limited to the managers either, but also to the women who came to the clinic: “I trained my staff the way that I was trained, which was to really encourage women to choose abortion; to have it at Planned Parenthood, because it counts towards our goal.” “It sounds kind of crazy, but pizza is a motivator [for...

    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...

    Not since Hannah Arendt’s portrait of Adolf Eichmann has there been a more provocative analysis of evil as that provided in Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer’s detailing the crimes, trial, and personality of Dr. Kermit Gosnell -- Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer (Regnery Publishing), “Banality” was the word Arendt chose for Eichmann’s bureaucratic officiousness in the Third Reich’s “Ministry of Death.” That term, however, hardly fits the acts of a self-assured abortionist who regularly snipped the spinal cords of babies born alive, kept infants’ feet as trophies, ran an illegal prescription drug mill, and hired...
