    Facebook is causing a stir on the internet this week after its internal rules for monitoring live-stream videos and other content were exposed publicly. The popular social media site has been facing criticism for the violent content that has come out of its new live-streaming video feature. Some of these videos have shown teens committing suicide and people abusing or killing other people. The Guardian, which investigated the mega-company, reported a list of rules and guidelines that Facebook gives to its content monitors. One of the rules allows videos of abortions as long as there is no nudity, according to...

    Stronger "March for Life" in Rome -- The Hush About it Begins in the Church (Rome) This year's March for Life took place in Rome on Saturday. Tens of thousands of participants once again put a strong appearance for the right to life of unborn children. Since the March for Life in Italy has evolved into a major event within a few years, the mainstream media have moved to a new strategy. Since it is not possible to make fun of the March for Life because of lack of success, it is silenced - because it is too successful. Daily newspapers and television, which, when politically appropriate, report about...

    FULL TITLE: The astonishing story of Lina Medina who is the youngest person ever to give birth at the age of FIVE WHEN Lina Medina’s stomach began growing, doctors were certain she was suffering from a large tumour – she was only five years old, after all. But after running tests they found she was seven months pregnant and weeks later she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. And almost 80 years on, Lina is still the youngest person in the world to have ever given birth. She was born in a small village in the Andes in Peru...

    The 10-year-old rape victim whose unborn baby was aborted last week in India is not going home to her mother. The Hindustan Times reports child welfare authorities said they are concerned about the girl’s safety after her mother publicly asked that her husband — the man who allegedly raped the girl — be released from jail. When the girl was discharged from the hospital Monday, she was taken to a children’s home, according to the report. “The victim’s mother is more concerned of her rapist husband who impregnated her daughter than showing any interest in taking care of her,” child...

    FULL TITLE: Student, 18, is suspended for two days and barred from her Christian high school's graduation ceremony because she is PREGNANT A high school senior will not be allowed to participate in her high school's graduation ceremony because she is pregnant. Maddi Runkles, 18, from Boonsboro, Maryland, goes to Heritage Academy, a small private Christian school in Hagerstown. She discovered she was pregnant in January, just a few days after receiving a college acceptance letter, according to the New York Times. But after she announced her pregnancy, Runkles was suspended for two days. School officials also removed the 18-year-old...

    Someday, future generations of Americans will look back on us and wonder how and why such a rich and seemingly enlightened society, so blessed and endowed with the capacity to protect and enhance vulnerable human life, could have instead so aggressively promoted death to children by abortion—both here and overseas. They will note that we prided ourselves on our commitment to human rights, while precluding virtually all protection to the most persecuted minority in the world today—unborn children. And they will demand to know why dismembering a child with sharp knives, pulverizing an infant with powerful suction devices, or chemically...

    While headlines blared today that four of IowaÂ’s 12 Planned Parenthoods are closing due to state cuts, thereÂ’s another story about the abortion giant shutting their doors in the Rocky Mountain region for an entirely other reason: lack of customers. Half of the Planned Parenthood facilities in New Mexico are closing plus the last facility in Wyoming, for a total of five throughout the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains region. And the decision was not completely financial, like the Iowa closings claim to be.Meet Adrienne Mansanares, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains Chief Experience Officer, who unexpectedly is honest...

    MONTREAL, May 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Archbishop of Montreal Christian Lépine has defended giving Holy Communion to Canada’s notoriously pro-abortion Catholic prime minister during Mass on Wednesday, describing it as “a gesture of hope.” Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau received Holy Communion and was among the dignitaries who spoke from the sanctuary at a Mass marking Montreal’s 375th anniversary, and which CBC broadcast live from Notre Dame Cathedral. Cardinal Gérald Lacroix of Quebec City, Cardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto, and papal nuncio Archbishop Luigi Bonazzi were among the prelates who concelebrated with Lépine. The event was widely publicized, with the...

    The Longmont Planned Parenthood health center will close in August, according to a news release from Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. The Longmont center will be one of six to close in the region. Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains spokeswoman Whitney Phillips said the closures are due to a tough financial landscape in the reproductive health care field, specifically due to the effects of the Affordable Care Act. "We supported (the ACA) because we love the idea of more people having health insurance and increasing access to the critical services that they need, but a lot of our...

    Desiring God ^ | May 13, 2017 | Abigail Dodds
    Some of the strangest news I’ve ever seen came across my screen this week. A company in Australia is turning frozen embryo children into jewelry for their parents to wear. Previously Baby Bee Hummingbirds had been making jewelry out of mothers’ breastmilk and placentas. Now, the company has turned its attention to frozen human embryos— embryos that couples choose not to implant in the mother’s uterus and no longer want to store or “donate.” To put it plainly, they’re making trinkets out of discarded children. Founder Amy McGlade says, “I don’t believe there is any other business in the world...

    Feminist icon Gloria Steinem made an impassioned plea for preserving and extending women's right to abortion, calling it "a powerful and necessary remedy in the fight against sexual injustice and global warming. Nothing is worse for the planet than more people. Interdicting the creation of more people is crucial if we are to avert a holocaust." As Steinem sees it, men force women into bearing children. "Considering the toll it takes on a woman's body, no woman in her right mind would willingly submit to childbirth," she contended. "Add to this the tremendous sacrifice of free time that must be...

    The scientific fact that an abortion ends the life of a living human being isn’t so convenient these days for Planned Parenthood – after all, it is now the largest abortion chain in the country. Back in 1952, before Planned Parenthood was an abortion operation, it sure had a more accurate understanding of science. That would be before the corporation’s twisted abortion ideology of today took over. Just look at this pamphlet below that states that abortion “kills the life of a baby after it has begun.” *****IMAGE ON LINK, CHECK IT OUT!!!******

    Sacramento, CA – A public records request made by Operation Rescue has yielded e-mails and other documents that show a close working relationship between Planned Parenthood and the California Attorney General’s office, especially when it comes to countering pro-life efforts. Planned Parenthood attorneys often sought meetings and conference calls with members of the Attorney General’s Office to discuss a number of issues, including the “Video Tape Law,” HB 1671, which was used to criminally charge David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). “Planned Parenthood essentially wrote the language that criminalized Daleiden and Merritt’s recordings more...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood Abortionist Forces Botched Abortion Patient to be Dangerously Transported to ER in Private Vehicle Dover, DE — It was the stuff of nightmares. A woman walked into the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Dover, Delaware, last Friday thinking that she would be getting a “safe” abortion done by a competent provider. She couldn’t have been more mistaken. Instead she received a botched, incomplete abortion by done by Larry Roy Glazerman, a former Florida doctor who has hurt a woman during surgery before. To make matters worse, Planned Parenthood refused to properly call an ambulance for the...

This represents the fourth emergency ambulance transport from Planned Parenthood’s flagship New York abortion facility in 2017, and the 17th overall medical emergency documented at Planned Parenthood abortion businesses around the nation this year.

    CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The only Planned Parenthood in the state of Wyoming is closing down. Planned Parenthood's Casper location confirmed Tuesday it will close this summer after more than 40 years of operation because of financial reasons. ""This is a challenging decision," said Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains official Adrienne Mansanares. The Casper location, which opened in 1975, serves around 500 patients per year, the Casper Star-Tribune reported (http://bit.ly/2qPQ4yS). Mansanares said most Wyoming patients who receive care from Planned Parenthood do so at the organization's Fort Collins location in Colorado.

    It’s time to fact check the fact checkers again. Politifact Texas recently examined a Texas state representative’s bizarre claim that abortions are safer than vasectomies. Earlier this month, Texas state Rep. Mary Gonzales, a pro-abortion Democrat, made the statement during a debate about a bill to require hospitals to submit reports about abortion complications to the state. “First and foremost, did you know that an abortion procedure is actually… safer than a vasectomy?” Gonzalez asked Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, who wrote the bill. The fact checker rated Gonzalez’s claim “mostly true,” writing: “Both procedures rarely have complications, a clarification missing from...

    Planned Parenthood is closing half of its six New Mexico clinics amid declining patient visits, but the closures will not affect the availability of abortion procedures, the organization announced Thursday. Sale of some of the clinic buildings, one each in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and Farmington, could also be used to fund a renovation to the San Mateo site in Albuquerque, which has been solely an abortion procedure center but will add other services.

    NEW YORK (AP) — For the first time, women in their early 30s are having more babies than younger moms in the United States. Health experts say the shift is due to more women waiting longer to have children and the ongoing drop in the teen birth rate. For more than three decades, women in their late 20s had the highest birth rates, but that changed last year, according to preliminary data released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
