A moment later, she heard the baby shopping cart cover move, she looked up and saw the man pulling her 14-month-old out of the cart. “At no point did...

    TUSCARORA -- In a packed house at Mohegan Sun Arena near Wilkes-Barre, thousands came to see Donald Trump on Monday night. Instead of seeing just Trump, they got Trump and a much smaller version of the presidential candidate. "Now he's supposed to look like Donald Trump. He's actually much too good looking. You are really handsome," Donald Trump said Monday night in Wilkes-Barre Township. Trump locked eyes with the tiny tot with a little help from the crowd. Once Trump brought him on stage, the 2-year-old boy from Schuylkill County stole the spotlight. He even chose to stay with Trump...

    Concerns over the Zika virus have focused on pregnant women due to mounting evidence that it causes brain abnormalities in developing fetuses. However, new research in mice from scientists at The Rockefeller University and La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology suggests that certain adult brain cells may be vulnerable to infection as well. Among these are populations of cells that serve to replace lost or damaged neurons throughout adulthood, and are also thought to be critical to learning and memory. "This is the first study looking at the effect of Zika infection on the adult brain," says Joseph Gleeson,...

Her baby girl had a heart defect that was so severe they didn’t think she would live more than a few hours after birth. They told Parra that she should consider abortion. “I reminded the doctor that I was 32 weeks,” she explained. “But the doctor said that my baby was considered defective and that you can terminate up to 38 or maybe 39 weeks. I told her, no, termination wasn’t an option. We were going to continue the pregnancy.” Parra was determined to help her daughter anyway...

    RIDGEPORT — A Stamford doctor can be sued for allegedly causing the death of a baby while removing an intrauterine device from the mother, a judge ruled Wednesday. The case came down to whether a 22-week-old baby, which was born alive but died soon afterward, can be considered a plaintiff in a wrongful death lawsuit. Lawyers for Dr. Corrinne de Cholnoky claim it was not a viable baby, and therefore the lawsuit should be dismissed. But in a 25-page decision, Superior Court Judge Michael Kamp ruled it is not the age of the fetus, but the fact that it was...

While medical advances in organ transplantation have saved lives, how far will we go as a society — both ethically and morally — to further organ donation? Ending a developing life to sustain another begins to resemble playing god. The goal of Ganogen researchers is to transplant fetal organs into a rat, where the organ could grow to...

He wasn’t just any random lion. He was Cecil. Mere lions (along with chickens, cows, lambs, and pigs) are killed, but Cecil was murdered. We love the lion that was named Cecil. We feel as though we knew him. The abortion industry knows very well the difference a name can make. In a recent New Republic...

A single lion, which was unknown to most of us, gets hunted for sport. International drama.

The initial video focused on Planned Parenthood conducting abortions in a manner that would preserve fetal organs intact. The Human Capital Project of the Center for Medical Progress produced the video, alleging Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted babies for profit. That is a violation of federal law punishable by imprisonment and hefty fines. Planned Parenthood says it donates fetal tissue...

    FULL TITLE: Mom, 26, is arrested 'after dumping her helpless baby daughter on the roadside at midnight in a car-seat' A 26-year-old mother whose baby was found abandoned on the side of a Maryland road strapped in her car seat has been charged with child neglect and reckless endangerment, police said. Sandra McClary called police herself at 10am on Sunday to say the baby - who was discovered shortly before midnight on the 900 block of Druid Hill Avenue in Pasadena - was her daughter.

    A Minneapolis teen stomped his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter to death to keep her from crying. Cody Feran-Baum, 17, admitted to investigators he kicked little Sophia O’Neill in the back, laid her on the floor and stomped on her back, authorities said. “It was, it was bad,” Feran-Baum said when asked how hard he’d kicked the tot. “It was hard.” The vicious blows split the girl’s left kidney and pancreas in two, ripped her liver loose from a ligament, fractured eight ribs and collapsed a lung. Feran-Baum, who is not Sophia’s father, was babysitting on June 9 while the mother left...

    Her abortion is allegedly scheduled for July 10, but one anonymous mother is demanding that pro-lifers give her $1 million to keep her from killing her preborn baby through an abortion. The woman, who says she will do her “best to remain anonymous in this process as what I aim to prove has nothing to do with me personally,” claims that pro-lifers don’t actually care about the life of a child. She writes: “On July 7th I will start accepting donations on this page. I will accept donations for 72 hours, the same amount of time this state currently requires...

    This week, the House of Representatives is voting on a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
