    FULL TITLE: Abortion Activists to Send Bloody Tampons to Texas Gov to Protest Requiring Burial for Aborted Babies Abortion activists have been turning to increasingly immature and potentially illegal actions in recent months in response to situations where they did not get their way. Their latest move is to urge women to send blood-soaked tampons to Texas pro-life Gov. Greg Abbott in protest of a new state rule requiring that aborted babies’ bodies be cremated or buried. The new rule, introduced in July by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, requires that abortion facilities, hospitals and other medical centers...

    Truthfully, I know this is not the party line -- certainly not the line coming from Obama, because it's his job to act calm -- but I'm not a politician, and to me, what this feels like is if the South had won the Civil War. It took them 150 years, but they finally won. That's what this is. I don't care what people say. Yes, they lost their jobs and it's horrible. I wasn't alone in feeling this, but I would say [on the left] I was unusually sympathetic to these people. I was against NAFTA. They have absolutely...

ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT After today, pro-life customers can resume shopping at Macy’s — which had been on a list of corporate contributors to the Planned Parenthood abortion company for some time. But today representatives of a pro-life group that tracks corporate donations to the Planned Parenthood abortion organization says Macy’s has ended his relationship with it.“In the spirit of thankfulness and celebration that comes this time of year, we have a special update to share with you,” Lance Wray of the pro-life group 2nd Vote told...

    UC DAVIS (CBS13) — A first-of-its-kind surgery at UC Davis Children’s Hospital had a happy ending just in time for the holidays. Doctors are celebrating a successful fetal surgery on a baby boy while he was still growing inside the womb. Bobby Angeles and Khae Saetern named their little boy Matthew, which means “a gift from God.” It’s a fitting name when you consider the loss they’ve experienced and the loss they almost faced. In the last three years, they’ve dealt with infertility, miscarriages, a baby girl who was stillborn. Then their unborn son had a serious condition that threatened...

Though there is no way of knowing, since discipline matters are shrouded in secrecy, it may be the first time a Canadian teacher has been fired not amid allegations of impropriety, but for having the wrong opinion.

    Wednesday on The View, the panel made some wild predictions about what would happen during Donald Trump’s presidency. But not before making some clearly factually inaccurate statements. The panel blamed Trump for supposedly taking away people’s health insurance already before warning that Mike Pence was going to take away women’s rights and LGBT rights. Whoopi Goldberg started off the discussion by hyping the notion that Trump and the GOP presidency was going to take away insurance from a lot of people when they repealed the Affordable Care Act. Goldberg then blamed Trump for her friend losing her health insurance and...

    CNN)Donald Trump's election, and a presumption that he'll appoint conservative Supreme Court justices, spurred Ohio Republicans to pass what would effectively be the nation's strictest time-based abortion law, a legislator said. Ohio lawmakers on Tuesday passed a controversial "Heartbeat Bill" that would ban abortions in that state from the moment the heartbeat of a fetus can be detected -- which usually occurs about six weeks into a pregnancy. What happens next for the bill, which would prohibit such abortions even in cases of rape or incest, depends on Republican Gov. John Kasich, who has 10 days to decide whether to...

    The Ohio legislature Tuesday approved one of the nation’s toughest abortion laws, and the bill is now headed to Gov. John Kasich for his signature or veto. Votes in the Ohio Senate and House capped a long day of maneuvering on a bill that would effectively outlaw abortions by banning the procedure once a heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. First Ohio senators voted 21-10 for the bill, which is different than the one the House approved last year. After more than 90 minutes of emotional debate, the House voted 56-39 late...

    The Ohio State Senate today passed legislation that would ban all abortions after an unborn baby’s heart begins to beat. An unborn child’s heart begins to beat at 22 days after conception or earlier. Should the measure be approved by the full Ohio State Legislature and be signed into law, the legislation would likely be struck down in court as has been the case and two other states — Arkansas and North Dakota. As the Ohio General Assembly considers bills in these last days of lame duck session before the year’s end, significant amendments are being added to various laws...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — At 21, Jessica Duran conceived a child she hadn’t planned for, and abortion, she said, felt like her only option. It was 2012. The father of the baby, and Duran’s parents, all said she should terminate the pregnancy. So she did. She went to Southwestern Women’s Options, signed a document that among other things allowed the fetal tissue of her 12- to 13-week aborted pregnancy to be used for medical research. She now says she didn’t read the document closely, but that she was distraught. In 2015, Duran learned her aborted fetus could have been used in...

The Satanic Temple called burial rites a “well-established component of religious practice” and said their members believe in “the inviolability of the body,” concluding that “as such these rules contradict our fundamental beliefs.” The Satanists invoked their First Amendment “right to practice our beliefs,” adding that “under the Religious Freedom Reform Act (RFRA), the State must present a compelling reason for why they want to enforce rules that inhibit...

    PARIS, December 2, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) --The socialist government of France passed a bill after one day's debate that criminalizes websites that might dissuade women from abortion. The “digital interference” bill is aimed at cracking down on French websites that would, in the words of the bill, "deliberately mislead, intimidate and/or exert psychological or moral pressure to discourage recourse to abortion." Convicted website owners could face two years in prison and fines up to 30,000 euros ($31,799 USD). The majority left voted in a block for the bill while the minority right formed a block against it.

Tom Price as secretary of health and human services. In particular, Price’s position against government-funded birth control and abortion. During the show, not only did Joy Behar completely skew Catholic and Christian views on contraception, but Whoopi Goldberg once again pushed for abortion (or, as she called it, “terminating this”). Behar first took issue with Price, because, as she saw it, birth control was necessary to prevent abortion. “He wants to roll back birth control benefits from...

The responses were predictably representative of left-wing Christianity, which centered on re-emphasizing social justice issues and identity politics as the “loving,” compassionate, anti-Trumpian counterpart to the hate-filled Christianity...

    Popular musician and actor Nick Cannon, 36, has slammed failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and controversial abortion provider Planned Parenthood for inflicting "real genocide" on the black community through abortion. In an interview with "The Breakfast Club" on New York's Power 105.1 FM on Thursday, Cannon made it clear that he was no fan of the pro-abortion movement in America or Clinton when co-host Charlemagne Tha God joked that he caused Clinton to lose the election by encouraging people not to vote. "[He's] one of the reasons Donald Trump is in the White House," Charlemagne said of Cannon...

    VATICAN CITY, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Pope Francis on Monday extended indefinitely to all Roman Catholic priests the power to forgive abortion, a right previously reserved for bishops or special confessors. Francis, who has made a more inclusive and forgiving Roman Catholic Church a characteristic of his papacy, made the announcement in a document known as an "apostolic letter" after Sunday's close of the Church's "Holy Year of Mercy". He said he wanted to "restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life" but "there is no sin...

    One of the biggest tests of the incoming administration’s commitment to the preborn will be whether it investigates and prosecutes Planned Parenthood for its criminal activities relating to the for-profit sale of aborted babies’ organs. The Obama Administration’s reaction to revelations was to take the abortion giant’s spin at face value, with top administration officials admitting they didn’t bother to watch more than “snippets” of the Center for Medical Progress’s explosive undercover videos, Attorney General Loretta Lynch showing no interest whatsoever in doing her job and investigating the evidence, and President Barack Obama continuing to maintain that Planned Parenthood deserved...

    Men who want to have sex with women who aren't interested in taking pills or getting abortions need to strap it up, wrap it up, or get a vasectomy. When I was 24, I decided against using hormonal birth control or getting an abortion unless absolutely medically necessary. At that time, I was dating and having sex with a man for about six months. We always used condoms, but that did not completely eliminate the possibility that I could become pregnant if we slipped up. So, I figured I was obligated to tell him about the choices I'd made. “If...

    Listening to the news commentaries over the last couple weeks and reading op-eds in our nation’s papers, one couldn’t have missed the discussion over the “silent Trump voters”, those who may be in huge numbers but who don’t want to tell pollsters they are supporting Trump. These silent Trump voters showed up big time last night, obliterating the electoral map. You know who else comprised an enormous silent majority? Pro-life voters. Yesterday, Election Day, the most-searched term according to Google Trends in much of the nation was “abortion.” The A-word that wasn’t even mentioned in presidential debates until the very...

    The annual collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development is this weekend, and once again, the Lepanto Institute is encouraging Catholics to refrain from donating. Last year, we wrote about the Marxist core of the CCHD. For those who have not yet seen the EWTN docudrama, A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, you need to put away 90 minutes of your time this week and watch it. In order to understand the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and it’s problems, you have to watch this docudrama! Our only criticism of this video is that it didn’t go far enough into...

    Indiana Right to Life has discovered that $200 human brains from aborted babies were purchased by Indiana University (IU) in May 2016. Part of the reason IU opposed statewide abortion restrictions and sued the state of Indiana was because IU wanted to continue its purchases of aborted baby body parts. Back then, IU said that a new Indiana abortion law would hinder necessary medical research. The Indy Star reported in May: IU said the new law…is vague and “will institute sweeping and unconstitutional prohibitions.” The impact on IU’s neuroscience research, according to the university’s seven-page complaint, could be “dramatic” and...
