    The name Steven Chase Brigham is notorious on both sides of the abortion movement. The late-term abortionist lost his license to practice in five states, faced criminal charges for killing late-term babies, employed a sex offender and more. Despite his disgraceful reputation, Brigham still runs more than a dozen abortion facilities in three East Coast states: Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia, according to his business website. This month, one of his Virginia abortion clinics was shut down, at least temporarily. The Washington Post reports state investigators found filthy, dangerous conditions that compromised patient safety inside Brigham’s Fairfax abortion clinic during...
  • Abortion, the Death Penalty and the Gun-grabbers

    I have noticed that pro-life people are frequently asked why they believe in the death penalty, but not abortion. That answer is simple. There is a vast difference between the pure life of the unborn and a criminal who has evilly taken someone else's life. And those Leftists, who believe in the 'Death with Dignity' meme, rail against those of us who believe in the 2nd Amendment.

    Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) and Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) sent a letter Monday, together with 73 of their colleagues to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Robert Califf, expressing concern and seeking information regarding the recent loosening of regulation of the abortion-inducing drug Mifeprex or RU-486. The FDA announced a change in their guidelines for Mifeprex in March. The new guidelines reduce the dosage from 600 milligrams to 200 milligrams, decrease the number of required doctor’s visits from three to two, and allow the pill to be taken later in pregnancy, at 10 weeks of pregnancy from 7 weeks. “We...

    Pro-life protesters faced a disturbing scene this weekend in Michigan when a group of Satanists arrived to counter-protest wearing baby masks and carrying whips. Citizens for a Pro-Life Society organized a protest outside of the Detroit Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on Saturday as part of a larger #ProtestPP movement to expose the abortion giant’s deadly trade of aborting unborn babies and trafficking their body parts. During the pro-life event, a local Satanist group arrived and conducted a disturbingly grotesque counter-protest. Some of the Satanists dressed in masks and diapers to look like babies, while others dressed in black, carried whips...

Women have never paid as much attention to the current race as men, but Gallup found that the attention gap has expanded in recent months.

    President Barack Obama has been derisively called the Abortion President by some pro-life advocates for the manner in which he has gone out of his way to promote and fund abortions and the abortion industry. From funding Planned Parenthood to pushing abortions on an international level at the United Nations and in other countries like Kenya, Obama has been the abortion movement’s best friend. But if you think Obama has been bad, Hillary Clinton wants to multiple his pro-abortion efforts. At a campaign rally, the best friend of Planned Parenthood says she wants to “go further” left than Obama. CLINTON:...

    It’s not long before the do-it-yourself abortion pill Mifegymiso will be available in Canada. Expected to be prescribed as early as this summer, the combination of two medications, taken a day or two apart, usually at home, is considered an effective way to end the life of pre-born children up to 7 weeks old. A recent article in the National Post presents the regulations around the pill, and the response. Pro-abortion groups are angry about the need for this medication to be prescribed by a physician, as well as the fact that doctors may choose to have the patient ingest...

    In a 5-2 ruling, the Florida Supreme Court on Friday issued a temporary block on enforcing the state’s 24-hour waiting period requirement for abortions. Florida is one of 27 states that require women seeking abortions to wait at least a day between seeing a doctor about an abortion and having it performed. Studies have shown that such laws are effective in changing the minds of women who do not enter an abortion facility already certain of their decision. A spokeswoman for Republican Governor Rick Scott, who signed the law, said they are reviewing the ruling, which was not on the...

    The Missouri Legislature has passed a budget that would eliminate taxpayer funding and reimbursements for abortion facilities, depriving Planned Parenthood in the state of an estimated $380,000. The move means foregoing $8 million the state would have received from the federal government, but the budget replaces that amount with Missouri’s own revenue. The money will now instead go, Senate Budget Chairman Kurt Schaefer explains, “to rural health clinics, [Federally Qualified Health Centers], and county health departments, of which there are over 580 across the state,” which he says provide all the same non-abortion services as Planned Parenthood does. Representative Judy...

    On Sunday, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus dismissed speculation that Donald Trump’s recent comments about changing the GOP platform’s abortion plank would lead to any actual changes. Last week, the businessman and GOP presidential candidate said he would “absolutely” favor amending the platform’s declaration “that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed” to make exceptions for rape, incest, and life-of-the-mother cases. But on ABC’s “This Week,” Priebus noted that convention delegates, not the candidates, have the final say over any alterations to the party platform. “If that’s what Donald Trump is intending,...

The state House passed the bill on Thursday in a strong, bipartisan vote; and the Oklahoma Senate passed it in March, LifeNews reported. Oklahoma state Sen.

Absolutely, for the three exceptions, I would,” he said. Trump was then pressed further and asked if he would make an exception to protect the “health” of the mother. “I would leave it for the life of the mother,...

    Back when Obamacare was just a threat in the form of legislation, it contained a provision called “the public option.” The idea was that anyone seeking health care insurance would be able to opt for a government run, single-payer system similar to what prevails in Canada and Great Britain. The public option never made it into the final product because it was a change too far. Most people believed, correctly, that the option was a ploy to cause private insurance to wither and die. Now Hillary Clinton has revived the public option as part of her reform of the health...

The coalition held nationwide protests last year following the release of undercover videos of Planned Parenthood executives that raised allegations that the organization had been trafficking aborted fetal body parts. Profiting from the sale of human body parts – including those of the unborn – is a felony in the United States. Spokespersons for Planned Parenthood have denied illegal conduct. Eric Scheidler, the executive director of Pro-Life Action League, one of the groups in the coalition, said in a...

Among a continuing string of bad news for President’ Obama’s Affordable Care Act, this one should stand out as an indicator that the ACA’s collapse is accelerating. Conservatives need to be ready to explain why and to present solutions, because advocates for fully socialized medicine will be ready to turn the collapsing exchanges to their advantage. All of the deficiencies in Obamacare’s structure have been well documented. High...

    Donald Trump has presented himself as a protector of conservative Christians and as the best friend Christians will ever have. He has held up his mother’s Bible and pledged to bring Christ back into Christmas. But when the rubber meets the road, he is anything but the defender of conservative Christians and their values. This became crystal clear yesterday morning (April 21), when Trump, appearing on the Today show, answered questions on abortion, North Carolina’s Bathroom Privacy Act, and transgender rights. When he was asked if he would like to change the Republican Party Platform on abortion, which allows no...

    As Donald Trump hurtles toward the Republican convention, he is on a collision course with the anti-abortion movement — a crucial conservative constituency that contends Republicans must own that issue to win a general election. Leaders of the movement are suspicious, if not outright opposed, to the three-time married billionaire who only recently came to oppose abortion and whose gaffes suggest he does not understand the issue. The latest flap exploded Thursday after Trump vowed he would "absolutely" change the Republican platform opposing abortion "for the three exceptions" — rape, incest and to protect the life of the mother.

    FULL TITLE: Pro-Lifers Will Protest at Planned Parenthood in Over 200 Cities Saturday After it Sells Aborted Babies A nation-wide rallying effort to expose Planned Parenthood’s horrendous abortion practices will take place on Saturday at more than 200 locations across the U.S. Organized by a group of pro-life organizations, the #ProtestPP rallies will remind communities of the abortion chain’s abhorrent treatment of unborn babies through abortion and the sale of their body parts. The #ProtestPP movement began last year after the Center for Medical Progress began releasing undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies’ body parts. Last year 100,000...

    Washington D.C., Apr 21, 2016 / 04:54 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- No matter how deeply someone may be entrenched in the culture of death, they are never beyond the loving reach of Christ, said former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson to a group of Georgetown University students on Wednesday. “I’m standing in front of you today as a testament to the power of conversion,” Johnson, a former Texas Planned Parenthood clinic director who later converted to Catholicism, said in a talk scheduled the same day as Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards’ address to students on Georgetown’s campus. Reflecting later on...

    Abortion clinics and the businesses that purchase aborted baby parts likely conspired to violate federal laws against fetal human organ trafficking, expert witnesses at a House hearing testified yesterday. Evidence of a widespread market for unborn baby parts — down to the tongue, scalp, eyes — was introduced at a testy hearing of the House Select Panel on Infant Lives. Here are the 11 big takeaways from the hearing chaired by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, (R-TN). 1) Federal Law Prohibits Profiting Off of Aborted Baby Parts In 1993, the House passed the National Institutes of Health Revitalization Act of 1993 with...

    Democratic lawmakers appointed to the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Select Investigative Panel on Planned Parenthood received more than $81,000 in campaign contributions from the organization since 1990, according to a study by the Media Research Center. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced the Democratic appointments to the panel earlier this week. “I am proud to name six strong champions of women, families and facts to stand up against the latest Republican assault on women’s health,” Pelosi said in a statement. “Hard-working families deserve better than a taxpayer-funded Republican Select Committee fixated on dismantling women’s health. As Republicans try to...

    On Thursday, Williamson County Circuit Court Judge Michael Binkley rejected pro-abortion advocates’ efforts to invalidate Tennessee’s Amendment 1, which clarifies that the state Constitution contains no right to abortion. Abortion advocates had challenged the law, which voters enacted in 2014, on an interpretation of the state requirements for constitutional amendments that claims the number of “yes” votes must be equal to or greater than the number of people voting for governor plus one, and therefore only voters who voted in the gubernatorial race should have their votes on the amendment counted. The state countered by arguing that Amendment 1 was...

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – On Tuesday, Ryan Bomberger of The Radiance Foundation addressed a student forum at Harvard University, a 90-minute discussion on abortion in the black community that turned hostile when students began shouting and walking out during the Q & A portion. In an event co-sponsored by Law Students for Life and Harvard Black Law Students Association, Bomberger spoke opposite Professor Diane Rosenfeld, lecturer and director of the Gender Violence Program at Harvard Law School. As students filed in, the auditorium at the historic Austin Hall neared capacity. “I speak on college campuses often, and I applaud these two...

    A Louisiana state House committee has approved legislation that would further defund the Planned Parenthood abortion company in the state. last year, pro-life former Governor Bobby Jindal cut off a taxpayer-funded contract with Planned Parenthood after the abortion business was caught selling aborted babies and their body parts. In August, then-Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal canceled a state contract with Planned Parenthood that provides the abortion company with family planning funding through Medicaid. But Planned Parenthood went to court to block the move. Then, Jindal tried a different approach — one based on the fact that Planned Parenthood has been caught...

    Planned Parenthood is losing money left and right as states, outraged by its trafficking of aborted babies’ body parts, move to defund the abortion giant. This week, Mississippi legislators sent a bill to Gov. Phil Bryant that would prohibit tax dollars through Medicaid from going to groups that perform elective abortions, according to the Associated Press. Mississippi Senate Bill 2238 passed the state House on Saturday, and the state Senate gave it the final OK on Wednesday, the report states. Gov. Bryant is expected to sign it. Modeled after Texas legislation, the bill was introduced after pro-life legislators witnessed the...

    It isn’t difficult to guess the reasons why a late-term abortion clinic in New Jersey didn’t want pregnant employees to be working there. It could be bad for its $1.8 million-a-year business. The Pilgrim Medical Center, a Montclair abortion clinic that advertises same-day, late-term abortions, recently lost a discrimination lawsuit filed by three former employees who said they were fired after becoming pregnant, according to the Wall Street Journal. Now, the abortion facility is filing for bankruptcy. Nicholas Campanella, the abortionist who owns the facility, has a reputation among his staff for “not lik[ing] pregnant employees,” according to the lawsuit....

    Missouri lawmakers just sent their governor a budget that would take away hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars from abortion groups in the state. Missourinet reports the legislators approved the budget on Thursday with a provision to give up $8 million in federal dollars, part of which would have gone to Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. Instead, the state budgeted money to support community health centers that don’t do abortions, according to the report. The budget also prohibits any taxpayer dollars through Medicaid from going to groups that perform elective abortions. The Planned Parenthood abortion business runs 13 facilities in Missouri...

    A nurse at a Phoenix, Arizona abortion clinic said she watched a baby who was born alive after an abortion move around and struggle to breathe before it died, according to an investigation of the case. In February, Pro-life Arizona reported learning that a city fire department transported a baby from the Family Planning Associates abortion clinic on North 7th Street to the Banner University Medical Center. “The baby was reported to be 21 weeks along (gestation) to the termination clinic, but when they removed the baby from the mother’s womb, the ‘fetus’ was breathing. A 9-1-1 call was made...
