    GREENVILLE COUNTY — A Greenville abortion clinic is under fire, accused of illegally transporting and disposing of aborted fetuses. An enforcement conference was held Thursday in Columbia to address Greenville Women's Clinic’s alleged illegal disposal of fetuses. Video taken by an eyewitness whistleblower and sent to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control appears to show employees transporting aborted fetuses off-site in passenger cars. They then allegedly brought the remains to a QT gas station in Greenville and transferred them to a Stericycle waste truck there. Mark Harrington is the president of anti-abortion agency Created Equal. "They're talking...

  • Judge Blocks Mississippi’s 15-Week Abortion Ban

    The bill would give the state the most restrictive abortion law in AmericaMississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed into law on March 19 the most restrictive state abortion bill in the nation because it bans abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The owner of the state’s only abortion clinic, Jackson Women’s Health Organization, filed suit immediately after Bryant signed the bill, claiming it is unconstitutional. At a morning hearing March 20, a federal judge blocked the law with a temporary restraining order, in effect for 10 days. The state and the clinic must now provide “expedited briefings” to the court while...

    On March 7, Cong. Beto O’Rourke (D., El Paso) won the Democrat primary to run against Republican incumbent Ted Cruz. O’Rourke’s victory puts Texas bishops in a bind. Their legislative agenda and their political priorities put them on the same page as O’Rourke, the USCCB, and the Democrat left — on gun control, welfare, health care, the travel ban, refugee policy, Cuba policy, the Paris agreement, the death penalty, global warming, the environment, immigration, foreign aid, deportations, and border security. Their only differences with Democrats lie in areas that magisterial teaching requires them to disagree: the anti-life, anti-family, anti-religious-freedom agenda...

    Planned Parenthood abortionist Leah Torres’ now infamous tweet this week further reveals the callousness of the abortion corporation. Torres, who is a Planned Parenthood abortionist at its Metro Health Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, wrote that “fetuses can’t scream” because she reportedly cuts the cord of the child first “so there’s really no opportunity,” even if the baby’s larynx is developed. Torres is also listed as an abortionist for the Rocky Mountain Women’s Health Center. She has also been a vocal critic of pro-lifers, whether in her ongoing blog or in various media outlets where she is quick to...

    Dr. Kathi Aultman spent years aborting “unwanted fetuses” and delivering “wanted” babies into their parents’ arms. But when she performed an abortion on a mother whose husband pressured her to abort the child, Aultman felt troubled. In a recent interview with CBN News, Aultman described how the experience and several others eventually convinced her to leave the abortion industry and become a pro-life advocate. Aultman began her OB-GYN career in Florida with a strong desire to help women. “It was no question in my mind that a woman should have the right to choose whether she wanted to be pregnant...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood Hides Abortionist’s Name after Bungled Abortion Causes Woman to Deliver Dead Baby in Home Bathroom Worcester, MA – A lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court in Worcester, Massachusetts, on March 5, 2018, against Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts by a woman who experienced a bungled late-term abortion that resulted in the birth of her presumably dead baby in her bathroom. While the lawsuit names Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, Inc. and the nurse practitioner, Rebecca Kreiger, there is no mention of the abortionist who started the two-day abortion. That’s because Planned Parenthood redacted his or...

    FULL TITLE: Toys R Us says millennials not having kids hurt the company — and it could be because of a looming 'demographic time bomb' Millennials are not like their parents. Typically defined as those born from 1981 to 1996, millennials are more racially diverse and more college-educated and marry later than previous generations. Millennial women are also increasingly delaying parenthood or forgoing it altogether, as reflected by the US's declining fertility rate. Fertility hit a record low in 2016, bringing the rate among women ages 15 to 44 to 62 births per 1,000 women. Many economists are wringing their...

    The failing toy chain recently revealed that it is going out of business after it filed for bankruptcy last fall. Daily Wire writer Paul Bois said the business deserves a “humiliating end.” After all, it did promote the group that is aborting more of its customers than any other group in the U.S., Planned Parenthood. Though Bois expressed sympathy for the employees who will lose their jobs, he said the business has itself to blame for its failure. “I shed not one tear for them, and neither should you: For the past decade, the organization has joined the ranks alongside...

    Despite her friends and family’s pleadings, a Catholic Irish mother recently trekked to England to abort her unborn baby. According to a report Tuesday, her baby was diagnosed with a fatal fetal disability after only a few weeks gestation. She chose to have an abortion in England, because abortion is illegal in Ireland. She made the journey with the help of Mara Clarke, the Abortion Support Network founder (pictured above). The mother overcame several obstacles in her decision. Traveling to England from Ireland can cost more than 2,000 euros, according to the report. The mother already had children but...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Last week they protested gun violence. This week, Rocklin High School students are using social media to organize a pro-life walkout using the hashtag #life. “To honor all the lives of aborted babies pretty much. All the millions of aborted babies every year,” said organizer Brandon Gillespie. He says his history teacher inspired the idea. As thousands of students across the country walked out of class demanding strict gun laws, in honor of the Parkland shooting victims, Benzel was placed on paid administrative leave when she asked students to consider whether there’s a double standard in the...

    DES MOINES, Iowa, March 20, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Sixty-eight faith leaders who say they are Christian signed a letter of protest against a proposed Iowa law that would protect preborn children from abortion once their heartbeat is detectable. "As faith leaders, we want to use our collective voices to stand with Iowa women in support of their constitutional right ... to an abortion," the letter to the editor of the Des Moines Register begins. Speaking against the Iowa Heartbeat Bill, the faith leaders write supportively of a pregnant mother's "private medical decisions,” referring to her choosing abortion. “Most Iowans, people...

    Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - Amtrak says it will be renaming the newly-renovated train station in Rochester after the late Rep. Louise Slaughter. The full name of the Rochester Intermodal Station will become the Louise M. Slaughter Intermodal Station in Rochester. The announcement was made Wednesday morning by Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand. The two were among several lawmakers at the local, state and national level who made the case for Slaughter to be the namesake for the train station. Last week, Schumer and Gillibrand in a letter to Amtrak said, renaming the train station is fitting for such an...

    Pay attention to their actions, not what they say. A judge has blocked Mississippi's new law banning abortions after 15 weeks, and supporters of abortion say it is obviously unconstitutional. But of course, cities and states can blatantly ignore federal immigration law if they want, according to progressives, for whom abortion is a sacred right. The law bans abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, down from a 20-week restriction already on Mississippi's books. The measure took effect immediately.  It featured some exceptions, including if a woman's life or a "major bodily function" is threatened or if the fetus has a health problem...

    On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear arguments over whether pro-life pregnancy help centers in California should be required to post notices informing women of the availability of abortions elsewhere. The pregnancy help centers are contesting the law, disingenuously named the California Reproductive FACT Act, claiming it violates their free speech rights, as well as undercuts the reason for their existence. Some might ask in the interest of fairness and equality (two buzzwords the left likes to use in other situations) whether abortion clinics are required to post notices with information about alternatives to the procedure. According to Ingrid Duran,...

    Washington, D.C. - A new California law, pushed by abortion advocacy groups, could force pro-life pregnancy centers to risk serious fines unless they promote or refer for abortions against their beliefs. NARAL, one of the largest and most extreme abortion groups, has recently been targeting these centers by calling them "fake women’s health centers," claiming they mislead women with inaccurate information to prevent them from having abortions. As a Supreme Court case over the law looms, Townhall visited two pro-life pregnancy centers in D.C., that have been called 'fake' by NARAL, to get a firsthand look at the work that...

    A new study reveals that 21,904 Americans have died while withering away on Medicaid waiting lists in states that expanded the program under Obamacare. The victims were poor and disabled applicants herded to the back of the line to make room for able-bodied adults with incomes above the federal poverty level (FPL). Why would any state pursue such a cruel and unjust policy? Obamacare incentivizes expansion states to shift Medicaid’s focus to able-bodied adults by paying over 90 percent of their coverage costs, while paying less than 60 percent of the costs for covering the truly poor and disabled. The...

    Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn weighed in on Pennsylvania’s 16th congressional district special election result, crediting Rep.-elect Conor Lamb’s (D-PA) victory to the candidate going against the far left like Nancy Pelosi. “[A]fter so much talk that the party was moving to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders [the special Pennsylvania congressional election] really reaffirms the power of a centrist Democrat,” Penn told New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis. “I mean, Conor Lamb really took a lot of centrist positions. He backed a lot of what President Trump was saying. And he came out explicitly against...
