  • Colorado abortion rates keep declining. Free IUDs and easier access to the pill are the reason.

    Abortion rates have dropped again in Colorado, and heath authorites are crediting increased access to birth control statewide. Pharmacists have written thousands of prescriptions for the birth control pill since 2017, when Colorado became only the third state in the nation to allow women to get prescriptions for oral contraceptives at the pharmacy instead of only from a doctor. State and federal dollars are funding free and low-cost IUDs — intrauterine devices that prevent pregnancy for five years or more — for low-income women and teens who visit community health clinics across the state. Another contributing factor: the so-called morning-after...
  • Amin Yashed: Furious man replies to Facebook trolls making ‘shed’ jokes about his name

    AN EXASPERATED man took to Facebook to demand social media users stopped mocking his name. Amin Yashed has been inundated with messages from jokers telling him to get out of their sheds. He wrote: “Wish you f****** would stop taking the p*** out my name! 50 message requests telling me to get out of your shed! I’M OBVIOUSLY NOT IN YOUR SHED YOU RACIST B*******. Stupid infidels.” Since his initial outburst though, Amin seems to have embraced the comedy of the situation and has made a mock up cover photo with his face peering out of a shed window.

    I am a baby killer. I stopped mid-step on my way into my office in Manhattan, and that thought scrolled through my brain yet again: “I am a baby killer.” It was an April day this year, nine weeks after I ended my child’s life. I decided to keep walking. That is a choice I have to make every day: Give up or keep moving. I have been choosing the latter, over and over again. I consider myself “pro-life.” But that phrase is heavy with multiple meanings. Like “pro-choice.” I identify with both of those terms. I am a walking...

    VAN ZANDT COUNTY, Texas (KETK) – The president of the Van Zandt County Humane Society has been arrested for stealing dogs. Cynthia Diane Durham, 61, was arrested Wednesday by Van Zandt County Precinct 2 Constable Jesse Ison and charged with theft of property. She is in the Van Zandt County Jail on a bond of $250,000. She is accused of participating in a process known as “pet flipping,” or stealing pets to be transported elsewhere for resale as a “rescue.” According to a press release from Ison, the victim, Jeremy Housden, contacted his office on July 15 to report the...

    FULL TITLE: Healthy Twins Survive Chemical Abortion After Planned Parenthood Failed to Disclose Second Child In Utero Recently, a Tennessee woman gave birth to healthy twin babies who miraculously survived a chemical abortion attempt at a Knoxville, TN, Planned Parenthood. The incredible story of these miracle babies, as told by one pro-life physician, underscores just how sorely the abortion giant fails to meet the needs of women, both from a medical standpoint and a human one. Displaying obvious ineptitude from the start, the nation’s largest abortion business only informed the woman she was pregnant with twins after the chemical abortion...

    Liu’s* husband told her to have an abortion. The Chinese woman discovered she was pregnant while on a visa as a visiting professor at a California university. Her spouse, still in China, feared the baby would have a disability due to the medication he took while ill. “He told her to have an abortion before coming home,” said Kerry Jepson, executive director of Assure Pregnancy Clinic in Fontana, California. “She felt she had no choice.” The woman whose home where Liu stayed encouraged her to visit Assure. A volunteer advocate at the clinic had been a missionary to China several...

    The American Center for Law & Justice represents the Everett, Washington, chapter of The Church at Planned Parenthood. The Church at Planned Parenthood-Everett (“TCAPP”) is an organization that hosts a “gathering of Christians for the worship of God and the corporate prayer for repentance for this nation, repentance for the apathetic church and repentance of our blood guiltiness in this abortion holocaust.” In April 2019, TCAPP began holding monthly worship services in Everett, near the Planned Parenthood Everett Health Center. In June, TCAPP was approached by City of Everett law enforcement officers who stated that the City of Everett had...

    PHOENIX — A Phoenix doctor is accused of pointing a gun at a small group of protesters outside Acacia Women's Center on Thursday, October 10, according to Phoenix police. Doctor Ronald Yunis was arrested by Phoenix police on Friday, October 18, on charges of aggravated assault, according to the Phoenix Police Department. A YouTube video posted by Apologia Studios depicts a group of anti-abortion protesters outside the Acacia Women's Center on October 10. As Dr. Yunis pulls out of the women's center parking lot, he appears to brandish a weapon, briefly pointing it at the protesters. ABC15 reached out to...

    In footage released Friday afternoon, it appears an abortion doctor pointed a firearm toward a pro-life demonstrator from inside his vehicle as he left a clinic in Phoenix earlier this month. Apologia Church, the group behind the pro-life demonstration at the Acacia Women’s Center on Thursday, Oct. 10, posted the video to YouTube, urging viewers to contact the Phoenix Police Department to demand action be taken against Dr. Ronald Yunis, the physician who allegedly pulled a gun on protester Elvis Kesto. The altercation took place around 11 a.m. as Kesto was packing up to leave the clinic. Yunis, who only...

    During moments of desperation, Arizonans routinely rely on a 211 crisis hotline for help. "Everyone knows about 211. I've referred other people to them. I’ve called them myself about shelter," said Enrique Troche, sitting on a street corner recently near the CASS homeless shelter in Phoenix. But the nonprofit that manages the hotline has signaled it is running out of financial support, and an effort to restore state funds to the hotline failed earlier this year. The bill was left to die at the committee-level after a socially conservative think tank raised alarm bells because three phone calls to the...

    DAVIS, Calif. (KTXL) -- Abortion pills will soon be available at all 34 public colleges across California for those who want them. “I think it’s a great idea,” University of California, Davis student Areeba Zaman told FOX40. Access to the pill is expected to start January 2023 at all University of California and California State University health centers. The centers will be required to provide access to the abortion medication for students who want it. “Being able to refer to your school as a resource for that sort of thing is very helpful,” student Andrea Garcia said. The new law,...
  • Pittsburgh’s Abortion Clinic Buffer Zone Law Upheld

    Bloomberglaw ^ | October 18, 2019 | Mary Anne Pazanowski Legal Reporter
    A Pittsburgh ordinance drawing a 15-foot buffer zone around medical facilities where abortions are performed doesn’t violate the free speech rights of “sidewalk counselors,” the Third Circuit said. The ordinance by its terms doesn’t apply to anti-abortion protesters who engage in “peaceful, one-on-one” conversations with people entering the clinics, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit said Oct. 18. Thus, it’s valid as applied to those protesters, the court said. The ordinance prohibits four activities: congregating, patrolling, picketing, or demonstrating within 15 feet of a hospital or health-care facility entrance. The sidewalk counselors’ activities don’t meet the definition...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A new study from researchers at Texas A&M University finds Tennessee's abortion waiting period law has reduced the number of abortions by 6%. Passed in 2015 under then Governor Bill Haslam, the law sets a 48 hour waiting period before undergoing the procedure. The law has been challenged in federal court by abortion clinics which argue it provides no benefits and causes a burden to women. Focusing on the Tennessee law, the new study found while abortions overall decreased, the waiting period caused a 38% increase in the number of second-trimester abortions. The study also found the waiting period...

    ST. LOUIS – Missouri officials are asking St. Louis police to provide security for an upcoming hearing on the state’s effort to end the abortion license for a St. Louis clinic. Both sides of the abortion issue have held vigils and protests over the licensing of Missouri’s only abortion clinic, which continues to offer abortion services while the case is pending. The next hearing is Oct. 28 at a state office building in downtown St. Louis. Administrative Hearing Commission staff attorney Ranada Vinyard told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that officials have been in contact with police because of the high-profile...

    NBC ^ | October 18, 2019 | Erika Edwards
    Women living in states with more restrictive policies on abortion are turning to online sources for medications that can be used to induce the procedure, a study published Thursday found. The study in the American Journal of Public Health examined data from a European online service called Women on Web. The service mails women early in their pregnancy two drugs — mifepristone and misoprostol — after a doctor reviews an online form filled out by the women. The women can then take the pills at home, without having to go to a clinic or other abortion provider. Over a period...
  • Louisiana could become the first state without abortion access as soon as next year

    Louisiana could become the first state not to have legal abortion access since the procedure was legalized in 1973. Depending on the outcome of an upcoming Supreme Court case next spring, the state could see abortion access effectively eliminated, even though Roe v. Wade — the case that legalized the procedure — would stay intact. Louisiana's "Unsafe Abortion Protection Act" is at the heart of the Supreme Court case. The law, not currently in effect, would require doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. Supporters of the law say the regulation would assist with "continuity of...

    Jacksonville, FL – In an all-too-frequent scene at abortion facilities in America, an ambulance was spotted at the Women’s Choice of Jacksonville abortion facility in Jacksonville, Florida, on Friday, September 27, 2019. Operation Rescue obtained the 911 recording and CAD transcript, both of which were heavily and unnecessarily redacted. An employee of a Women’s Choice of Jacksonville phoned 911 at 1:07 p.m. for emergency assistance with a patient. A fire unit and ambulance were dispatched. The Jacksonville Fire Department covered all information about why city emergency services were summoned under a shrill screeching sound that blocked out the conversation between...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood Abortionist Forced to Admit Under Oath That She Said “I Want a Lamborghini” in Relation to “Compensation” for Aborted Babies’ Body Parts A Planned Parenthood abortionist was just forced to admit under oath in our trial that she did in fact say, “I want a Lamborghini,” in relation to “what I would receive in compensation” for “fetal tissue” procurement – i.e. aborted babies’ body parts. We recently told you how, despite their legal efforts to keep certain evidence out of court, Planned Parenthood’s own legal team has opened the door, and disturbing evidence continues to mount....

    Abortion has been a surprisingly popular topic on television this week. New Amsterdam, Bull, and Empire have all openly referenced, debated, or supported the right to kill an unborn child. Now NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is joining the pack with a plot focused entirely around abortion. The October 17 episode “The Burden of Our Choices” follows the SVU investigating a 13-year-old runaway named Evangeline (Kira McLean). Evangeline comes from a fundamentalist Christian family (because, of course) in Ohio, but after her stepfather rapes her (another easy trope), she escapes to New York to have an abortion due...
