    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 woman’s 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 you’d guess, I was strongly in favor of legalizing abortion. The bumper sticker on my car read, “Don’t 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. Koch’s hobby would later lead to her downfall during the Nuremberg trials. Witness after witness gave testimony to Koch’s monstrous cruelties, some testifying that she seemed to demonstrate particular joy at sending children...

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...

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 earlier–even in the womb. In the U.S., that means that 90% of children with Down’s 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 mother’s experience is what follows: Yet if making that choice was hard, the physical ordeal was only just beginning.

    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 mother’s health (a standard pro-lifers fear is too broad under the Supreme Court’s definition of health, and could theoretically exempt any...

    JERUSALEM, Israel, January 22, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The number of abortions in the nation of Israel continues to decline dramatically, according to the Israeli Health Ministry. The Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) reported that there has been more than a twenty-percent drop in abortions from 2000 to 2014. The report explained that of the terminations in 2014 (17,500), half were cases of rape or other criminal activity. The CBS report noted that the percentage of pregnant women who appeal for an abortion is diminishing, too. In 2013, 9.6 out of every 1,000 pregnant women appealed for an abortion –...

The formal complaint is based on the health system’s “repeated and systematic failure to provide women suffering pregnancy complications with appropriate emergency abortions as required by federal law,” according to an ACLU press release. Fox News religion correspondent Father John Morris said this is another example of religious institutions being forced to do things against their beliefs.

The phone calls were part of “Schedule Your Mammogram Day,” an event organized by And Then There Were None, a pro-life organization, to raise awareness of Planned Parenthood’s deceptive claims on women’s health.The misconception that the nation’s largest abortion provider has been offering mammograms is a common claim, repeated by the media.

Howard led the item by hyping that “House Republicans on Wednesday fueled an already emotional and partisan debate by hearing testimony” from Gianna Jessen and Melissa Ohden, who “survived failed saline-infusion abortion attempts.” Howard noted that Jessen was “left with cerebral palsy due to a lack of oxygen during her mother’s...

At the top of Gallup’s list of 19 issues was contraception, of which 90 percent of Americans approve, followed by divorce at 69 percent and premarital sex at 66 percent. Others making the top ten were embryonic stem cell research (65%), childbirth outside of marriage (58%), same-sex unions (58%), euthanasia (52%) and abortion (42%).

Americans remain cautious about having babies following the worst recession since the Great Depression, although they are increasingly changing residences again, suggesting growing confidence in the economic recovery. Those are among the findings from county-level data that also show the largest metropolitan areas are getting bigger as much of the rest of the nation sees slower population growth or declines. Rural areas where...

    Lincoln, Neb., Mar 24, 2014 / 08:06 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Bishop James Conley of Lincoln hopes his new pastoral letter on the sacrificial “language of love” and the disruptive immorality of contraception will be received “with open hearts and open minds.” “My hope is that people, Catholic couples especially, and also Catholic physicians and pharmacists, will be willing to look at this issue again,” he told CNA March 20. “The Language of Love” is Bishop Conley’s pastoral letter on the sacrificial nature of love and on contraception, officially promulgated March 25 -- the feast of the Annunciation, when the Church...

    There are times when a horrific fact comes to light that shows people the true feelings of what others think. We're constantly being bombarded by the media and popular culture that progressive liberals are compassionate, kind, and care about the poor, downtrodden, and dispossessed. Meanwhile, conservatives are branded as evil bigots that only want to oppress others and amass piles of wealth upon the suffering of those less fortunate. Christians are under constant attack as being intolerant homophobes. The message is relentless: only the far left gives a damn about the common man. Yet the that statement is the farthest...

    The Vatican blasted back at a UN-authored Rights of Children report, saying its criticism of the church's stand on homosexuality is driven by critics of the church's "non-negotiable" teachings. The U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child, whose members have included such nations as Saudi Arabia, Syria, Uganda and Thailand,accused the Vatican Wednesday of "systematically" adopting policies that allowed priests to rape and molest tens of thousands of children over decades, and urged it to open its files on pedophiles and bishops who concealed their crimes. Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the head of the Holy See's delegation to the United...

    A lot of noise has been generated by Vladamir Putin’s negative stance on homosexuality, and by the (falsely so-called) moral posturing and preening in the West as we resolve (courageously!) to be represented at the coming Winter Olympics in Sochi by homosexual athletes. That’ll show him. Actually, it won’t show him anything. What makes Putin tick? What’s his game? What is he up to in all this? His basic ideology—after Putinism—is nationalism. He is therefore not interested in developing an international consensus on exploring sexual identities. He would be if something like that could be played out to Russia’s advantage,...

    Al Gore pops his head up at Davos…say, how’d he get there? A fossil fueled flight?…to make a racist pronouncement (via Climate Depot). Stopping overpopulation is one way the dangers of climate change can be mitigated, according to two of the most prominent believers in global warming. Former Vice President Al Gore and Microsoft founder Bill Gates (how did Gates get to Davos? Anyone think he flew commercial?) said at the World Economic Forum in Davos that contraception is a key in controlling the proliferation of unusual weather they say is endangering the world. “Depressing the rate of child mortality,...

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA, January 27, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – At a Mass held just hours before the 10th annual West Coast Walk for Life, San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone praised young pro-life activists, but asked them to “look around and notice those who are your elders here in this church.” “They are the first generation of pro-lifers,” said Cordileone. “It is no understatement to say to you, my beloved young people, that you are here because of them.” Standing in front of at least 3,500 pro-life activists at St. Mary's Cathedral, the Archbishop compared today's pro-life efforts to those of 40...

    Aragon's Education Ministry has been slammed for promoting an anti-abortion short film competition aimed at teenagers. The contest, directed at students aged 14 to 18, will reward the makers of the film that best "defends the life of the unborn" with €500 ($680) in prize money. Two private pro-life associations are behind the controversial scheme, but it's Aragon's regional ministry that has received most criticism for advertising the scheme on its website. The competition's judges will be looking for films that "offer a beautiful, suggestive and encouraging view on why women who have an unexpected pregnancy should opt for life"....

    Birth control is a touchy subject that Evangelicals find extremely difficult to discuss. But as the President’s health care mandate officially launches and its oppressive contraception enforcements are questioned, some Evangelicals are reconsidering their embrace of oral contraception, or what is commonly referred to as the Pill.Evangelical leaders like Dr. Albert Mohler who question the morality of contraception are garnering criticism from the Religious Left. Hurling accusations of sexism and selfishness, Georgetown student and Jim Wallis’ teacher’s assistant, Jacob Lupfer, penned The Washington Post op-ed “The Evangelical Unease Over Contraception.” His article claims that Evangelical leaders are denouncing contraception...

This is followed by Comfort interviewing people about Adolf Hitler; their responses indicate a lack of historical knowledge, although he also finds a neo-Nazi who claims to love Hitler.[3] Comfort proposes a hypothetical situation to his interviewees, asking if they would kill Hitler if they had the opportunity at that time in history. He asks more hypotheticals dealing with what his interviewees might do in...

    It is that time of year to evaluate your life, to examine behaviors, and to determine how to make the next year better. Today's commentary shows us how Planned Parenthood plans to spend its next year – and future years. Are you committed to making the world a better place or to merely watching what happens in the world? How will you resolve to act this coming year? FILTHY: obscene, vile, impure, indecent, lascivious, lewd, pornographic, raunchy, vulgar In other words, not a very nice wish for the new year. But that is exactly what Planned Parenthood is offering our...
