    The California State Assembly voted overwhelmingly to pass legislation to require public universities in the state to offer medication abortion at on-campus student health centers. The body voted to pass Senate Bill 24 in a 55-19 voted on Friday, several months after the state Senate first voted to approve the measure in May. According to The New York Times, 34 college campuses in the state would be affected by the legislation, if passed, which seeks to require “each student health care services clinic on a California State University or University of California campus to offer abortion by medication techniques.” “The...

    Sarah was 26 years old when she got the shock of a poorly-timed, positive pregnancy test. Already a mother of three, she was concerned about the course of her life. Her boyfriend insisted she have an abortion, so she scheduled the appointment, fearing being a single mother of four and feeling she needed to “save face,” succumbing to the father’s pressure to “take care of this.” Sarah was given two pills to complete the abortion. But after she took the first pill, she dissolved into tears. “It was awful,” she told The Catholic Telegraph. When she looked at her other...

    For more than a decade, women have used Abortion Pill Reversal as a means to stop their in-progress chemical abortions and save their unborn babies’ lives. Now, Heartbeat International, which took the reins of the protocol’s 24-7 helpline and provider network this spring, says the protocol has led to the births of more than 500 babies, with another 100 on the way. “This new milestone represents not only 500 lives saved, but 500 women who were given a second chance to choose life and save themselves and their babies from a terrible fate,” said Jor-El Godsey, president of Heartbeat International,...

    An Amsterdam-based abortionist who prescribes abortion pills to clients over the internet is suing the FDA for seizing abortion pills she illegally prescribed to U.S. patients after she violated an FDA cease and desist letter. Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, an abortionist who once plied her trade by boat but later moved her business model to the internet and even drones, together with her lawyer Richard Hearn, filed the federal lawsuit in Idaho Monday. Gomperts claims that by cracking down on the illegal distribution of abortion pills, the government is denying women a “constitutionally protected right to terminate their unwanted pregnancies.” Gomperts...

    Washington D.C., Sep 10, 2019 / 06:06 pm (CNA).- Pro-life groups are decrying an effort by a European doctor to sue the United States Food and Drug Administration in order to continue selling medical abortion pills online. Dr. Rebecca Gomperts is a licensed physician in Austria and the founder of Aid Access, a European company that prescribes and mails misoprostol and mifepristone, the drugs required for a medical abortion, to women in the United States. In March, the FDA issued a cease-and-desist to Aid Access, ordering the group to stop prescribing and mailing the drugs to patients in the United...

    A federal judge has temporarily halted a North Dakota law that required doctors to tell patients the effects of abortion drugs can be reversed. U.S. District Court Judge Daniel Hovland issued an order Tuesday granting a preliminary injunction on that part of the law, known as H.B. 1336. "Legislation which forces physicians to tell their patients, as part of informed consent, that 'it may be possible' to reverse or cure an ailment, disease, illness, surgical procedure, or the effects of any medication—in the absence of any medical or scientific evidence to support such a message—is unsound, misplaced, and would not...

    A judge in North Dakota ruled against the state's recent law requiring physicians to tell patients that their medication abortions may reversed, a claim he called "devoid of scientific support, misleading, and untrue." In a 24-page decision issued Tuesday morning, Judge Daniel Hovland granted the American Medical Association and Red River Women's Clinic — North Dakota's only abortion provider — a preliminary injunction against North Dakota House Bill 1336, which would have required physicians to tell patients "that it may be possible to reverse the effects of an abortion-inducing drug if she changes her mind, but time is of the...

    A European abortion activist who has been selling dangerous abortion drugs over the internet sued the Food and Drug Administration Monday for trying to shut down her work. Rebecca Gomperts, the founder of Aid Access, Women on Web and Women on Waves, pro-abortion groups that provide abortions,often illegally, in various countries across the world, is behind the lawsuit. In March, the FDA accused Gomperts of violating the law and putting women at “significant health risks.” It sent her a warning letter telling her to immediately stop selling the abortion drugs. The abortion drugs have been linked to at least 24...

    I recently addressed a California state assembly committee to talk about Senate Bill 24, one of many abortion experiments legislators are considering in my home state. It would mandate that all California public universities distribute RU-486 abortion pills in their student health centers. These pills cause abortions for women who are up to 10 weeks pregnant, well after which the baby has developed a heartbeat. Tensions were high as my colleague and I began our very short allowance of two minutes each to explain our opposition. Given the risks to my peers and fellow Californians, I had to try. Providing...

    Many Americans think of Sunday at the day for church, but The New York Times encourages its subscribers to see Sunday in a much more sybaritic way. This seemed really obvious on August 4. Sunday Business had a big cover story titled "Can Millennials Save Playboy?" The Hefner family is no longer involved, and "gender editor" Jessica Bennett wrote "This is a newer, woke-er, more inclusive Playboy — if you believe what company executives tell you, and if you are inclined to give an aging brand yet another chance at reinvention." A new underwater cover photo is said to be...

    One afternoon about a year ago, just as the Senate began considering Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, I logged on to Day Night Healthcare, an online pharmacy based in India, and ordered a pack of abortion pills. A few hours later, I got a call from a Day Night customer-service agent with a warning. If my credit-card company called to ask about the purchase, “tell them you approve the charge, but don’t say what it’s for,” the man advised. “If they ask, say it’s gym equipment, or something like that.” In fact, the bank never called, and in...

    Sacramento, Calif., Jul 31, 2019 / 05:01 pm (CNA).- Three California bishops are calling on local Catholics to pray and fight against a bill that would require state colleges and universities to provide free access to abortion pills for students. The bill, SB 24, is a slightly-amended version of a bill introduced in California’s state legislature last year that was ultimately vetoed. Former Governor Jerry Brown, a public supporter of abortion, vetoed the similar bill last September, saying it was was “not necessary,” as abortion services are already “widely available” off campus. California’s current governor, Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, said...

    STEUBENVILLE, OHIO—After more than three years of research, a team of behavioral neuroscientists at Franciscan University of Steubenville has released the findings of a study that suggests what many in the pro-life movement have suspected for years: There are significant negative biological and behavioral consequences caused by abortion. The study, “Biological, Behavioral, and Physiological Consequences of Drug-Induced Pregnancy Termination at First-Trimester Human Equivalent in an Animal Model,” examined the effect of the commonly used pregnancy termination-inducing drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol, in rats in a controlled environment. Published in Frontiers in Neuroscience, the study found significant and adverse behavioral changes in...

    The rise of so-called “abortion reversal” bills has alarmed leading medical groups that say such legislation forces physicians to give misleading, unscientific and potentially dangerous advice to women, undermining the trusted doctor-patient relationship. So far this year, five states ― North Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kentucky and Arkansas — have passed legislation mandating that physicians counsel women that a medication abortion, a safe and common method for ending a pregnancy before 10 weeks, can be reversed. Similar laws are already on the books in South Dakota, Utah and Idaho. Arkansas expanded an existing law.

    FULL TITLE: US pharmacy boards say they don't know how to stop women buying abortion pills online from foreign doctors as states pass strict bans US states say they don't know how to crack down on American women buying abortion pills from foreign online suppliers. This year, nine US states with Republican-controlled legislatures passed new restrictions on abortions ranging from bans at six weeks to bans unless the mother's health is at risk. In 2018, more than 20,000 US women sought the pills online from providers willing to defy US federal rules over sale of the drugs that induce miscarriage....

    Risk-averse college and university campuses in recent years have looked at all kinds of programming that has the potential to put students in harm's way, from cybersecurity to Greek life. Consider the rolled-back support for fraternities following hazing incidents and reports of racist conduct. Just this year, a student death at the University of California, Irvine, lead to a fraternity suspension. With schools counting the costs of things like fraternities or credit card marketing on campuses, the renewed push to force all California college and university health care centers to distribute chemical abortion drugs is hard to fathom. Just last...

Aid Access is a website that says it offers abortion-inducing drugs to healthy women who are nine weeks pregnant or less. If women qualify for the pills through online consultations, Aid Access writes them prescriptions for the two abortion-inducing drugs, misoprostol and mifepristone. These prescriptions are filled at a pharmacy in India, which mails the drugs to...

    We may now know the real reason that Christine Blasey Ford has come forward to stop Brett Kavanaugh from joining the Supreme Court. She feels that it will affect her wallet. She has written or co-written 8 studies on the abortion pill, known as RU-486, which contains the ingredient mifepristone and is sold under the name of Korlym. It is the one and only product sold by Corcept Therapeutics. Ford works for Corcept Therapeutics and promotes Korlym. Should that product be outlawed by the Supreme Court, the company would likely be out of business. That seems like a very powerful...
