  • NPR Debate Smackdown: Truth vs. Prochoice

    Most Americans should know by now that NPR stands for National Prochoice Radio. They rarely ever try to appear objective on abortion. This week, I was given the opportunity to debate the president of Planned Parenthood Maryland (PPM) on NPR affiliate, WAMU in DC. I was excited about the prospect of an actual debate with a Planned Parenthood executive. They tend to avoid any challenge to their media-regurgitated, unsubstantiated talking points. Well, that chance was quickly aborted the evening before the interview. Planned Parenthood backed out, it seems because they didn't want to debate a factivist. So Planned Parenthood-endorsed Maryland Delegate Kathleen...
  • Why Polish women are travelling to Germany for abortions

    The Local (Germany) ^ | 6 March 2017 | DPA/The Local
    Poland only allows abortions in a limited set of scenarios. So for many women faced with unwanted pregnancies, Germany has become a safe solution. The cell phone of doctor Janusz Rudzinski is almost constantly ringing. The native Polish medic is head of the gynaecological branch of a hospital in Prenzlau within the scenic Uckermark region of Brandenburg. And many women from his native land seek him out when they decide to have an abortion. Every woman has the right to self-determination, and can decide for themselves about their bodies, Rudzinski says. But in Poland theyre denied this. Poland has some...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A bill in the Alabama Legislature would require women seeking abortions to get a sonogram two days ahead of the procedure and hear a detailed description of the embryo or fetus The Senate Health Committee has scheduled a Wednesday public hearing on the bill by Republican Sen. Gerald Allen of Tuscaloosa. A federal appeals court in 2014 blocked a similar North Carolina ultrasound law.

    When confronted with opposition to abortion, many feminists reflexively assert that it is (Their) body and, therefore, (their) choice. Notice that I have used the term assert instead of argue. In order for an assertion to become an argument it must be accompanied by evidence. There simply is no evidence to support the position that the unborn is merely an extension of the womans body. There are two ways to respond to this unsupported assertion. One is to simply quote from embryology textbooks, which uniformly conclude that the unborn is a distinct, living, and whole human being from the point...

    At the time of the Roe v. Wade decision, I was a college student an anti-war, mother-earth, feminist, hippie college student. That particular January I was taking a semester off, living in the D.C. area and volunteering at the feminist underground newspaper Off Our Backs. As youd guess, I was strongly in favor of legalizing abortion. The bumper sticker on my car read, Dont labor under a misconception; legalize abortion. The first issue of Off Our Backs after the Roe decision included one of my movie reviews, and also an essay by another member of the collective criticizing the...

    Though Planned Parenthood claims that women depend on them for prenatal care, Live Action investigators had an incredibly hard time finding facilities that offered it—though they found plenty offering abortions. Live Action contacted all 41 Planned Parenthood affiliates where undercover recording is permitted by state law, and only 5 facilities out of 97 said they provided prenatal care.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekgiScr364Y

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Ann McElhinney. If there is one thing the abortion defenders agree on, it's that abortion doctor/mass murderer Kermit Gosnell is an aberration. The Philadelphia doctor was convicted of truly horrific crimes including killing babies born alive by snipping their necks with scissors. He was also convicted of manslaughter for allowing unqualified workers to administer anesthetics to a patient who then died and he performed illegal and late abortions many on women who were six, seven or eight months pregnant. When a conservative social media firestorm eventually forced the mainstream media to cover...

    Ilse Koch, also known as The Bitch of Buchenwald, had a penchant for heavily tattooed human skin. She would search out the finest examples of skin art from among the prisoners at the death camp and have them skinned before they were shoveled into the ovens. Workers at the camp then made the skin into various artifacts. Some say lampshades were made from the most beautiful specimens. Kochs hobby would later lead to her downfall during the Nuremberg trials. Witness after witness gave testimony to Kochs monstrous cruelties, some testifying that she seemed to demonstrate particular joy at sending children...

    Recent revelations through the WikLeaks hacked emails show an anti-Catholic and anti-evangelical bias on the part of some of Hillary’s campaign staff. For instance, Sandy Newman, president of Voices for Progress wrote to John Podesta, now Hillary’s campaign manager, in a February 2012 email: “There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic church.”Podesta replied, “We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this.” One could only imagine...

    Unlike any previous major party platform, the final draft of the 2016 Democratic platform explicitly calls for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion except in cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother. A press release from the Democratic Party on Saturday proudly announced, “The platform goes further than previous Democratic platforms on women’s reproductive rights. It champions Planned Parenthood health centers and commits to push back on all Republican efforts to defund it.” "The platform also vows to oppose, and seek to overturn, all federal and state laws that impede a...

    Catholic Bishops Blast Obama Admin for Forcing Churches to Pay for Abortions The leading pro-life spokesmen for the Catholic bishops are blasting an Obama administration decision revoking federal protection for chruches in California forced to pay for abortions. As LifeNews reported, churches in California are officially subject to an onerous state regulation that requires them to pay for abortions, thanks to a ruling by the Obama administration.The troubling situation began in 2014 when the California Department of Managed Health Care reclassified abortion as a basic health service under the Affordable Care Act and ordered all insurance plans in the state...

    Modern technology brings diagnoses earliereven in the womb. In the U.S., that means that 90% of children with Downs Syndrom are aborted thanks to amniocentesis. In this UK example, a child diagnosed via ultrasound with Spina Bifida was aborted [WARNING: this is very disturbing]. His mothers experience is what follows: Yet if making that choice was hard, the physical ordeal was only just beginning. At 18 weeks pregnant, I was too far gone for a surgical termination and would have to go through a labour and delivery, under the care of midwives at our local hospital. The first step was...

The rule will require physicians, hospitals, insurers, and other healthcare entities that receive federal funds such as Medicare and Medicaid to include gender transition treatments and even abortion among their services for the alleged sake of equity. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the final rule on Obamacares...

Miller, who had a three-month affair with then Gov. Bill Clinton in 1983, recently shared with The American Mirror some of the intimate secrets Bill told her, including that even having a child was a political calculation for the current Democratic front runner for president.

    March 14, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) While some in the pro-life movement do not see a connection between the right to life and the struggle to preserve traditional sexual morality, those on the other side see how the efforts coincide quite clearly. The plaintiffs in the case to force California to redefine marriage say the LGBT political movement and actions to expand abortion are inseparable. John Lewis and Stuart Gaffney, a homosexual couple, won a California Supreme Court decision in 2008 stating that refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples is a form of discrimination that violates the state constitution....

    On Monday, the Utah State Senate voted 20-3 to pass legislation requiring any abortion past 20 weeks of pregnancy to include anesthesia for the preborn baby. The bill, SB 234, is based on a body of medical research strongly indicating that preborn children are capable of feeling pain around 20 weeks. Current law only requires abortionists to inform women of fetal pain and offer anesthesia as an option. It contains one amendment waiving the requirement in cases of the mothers health (a standard pro-lifers fear is too broad under the Supreme Courts definition of health, and could theoretically exempt any...
