    Planned Parenthood announced on Wednesday it plans to spend at least $45 million ahead of the 2020 elections, the most it has ever spent during an election cycle. The push comes as abortion rights are under assault across the Midwest and South, with state lawmakers passing abortion bans and restrictions aimed at capturing the attention of the Supreme Court. The investment intends to fund large-scale grassroots programs and canvassing, digital, television, radio and mail programs in battleground states across the country, according to a press release. Planned Parenthood Votes, the independent expenditure political committee arm of the reproductive health giant,...

    [Catholic Caucus] ‘The term ‘life’ must be redefined,’ new head of Vatican Life Academy declares LOS ANGELES, California, September 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― The president of the Pontifical Academy for Life has declared that the academy must broaden its scope and welcome non-Christian “experts.”  Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, 74, presented the speech at Loyola Marymount, a private Jesuit university in Los Angeles, yesterday. After introducing the pontiff’s January 6 letter Humana Communitas, the prelate explained that Francis wishes both the Academy for Life and the John Paul II Institute, of which Paglia is grand chancellor, to work “more broadly.” “The...

    This is an excerpt from my book, “Born From Above: a commentary on John 3″- available at The third chapter of John allows us to overhear a conversation between Nicodemus, the chief rabbi of Israel, and Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus was not trained in the rec- ognized rabbinic schools, but He was approved of God by signs and wonders as well as by the irrefutable doc- trine He taught. Nicodemus came to Him, and spoke for other leading rabbis when he acknowledged that Je- sus had come from God. The topic? The New Birth, as the entry into the long-awaited...
  • A doctor and medical ethicist argues life after 75 is not worth living (Ezekiel Emanuel keeps at it)

    MIT Technology Review ^ | August 21, 2019 | Stephen S. Hall
    In October 2014, Ezekiel Emanuel published an essay in the Atlantic called Why I Hope to Die at 75. Because Emanuel is a medical doctor and chair of the University of Pennsylvanias department of medical ethics and health policy, as well as a chief architect of Obamacare, the article stirred enormous controversy. Emanuel vowed to refuse not only heroic medical interventions once he turned 75, but also antibiotics and vaccinations. His argument: older Americans live too long in a diminished state, raising the question of, as he put it, whether our consumption is worth our contribution. Emanuel was born into...

    The media are reporting that one Frenchman's case represented a right to die fight.

Left a quadriplegic with serious brain damage after a traffic accident more than 10 years ago, Lambert needed a feeding tube, but could breathe on his own. He was heavily sedated by French doctors as he died, in a move that divided not only France but also...

    A masked gunman who opened fire nearly two years ago at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tenn., will spend the rest of his life in prison for the murder of church member Melanie Crow. A Nashville-area judge imposed the jury-recommended sentence after 27-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samsons recent conviction in Crows death. Crow was walking to her car after worship on Sept. 24, 2017, when Samson shot her multiple times in the church parking lot. Samson then entered the church building and began shooting, injuring several others before a church member apprehended him, according to authorities and witnesses....

    February 21, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) Planned Parenthood CEO Leana Wen sat down with presidential daughter Chelsea Clinton for a piece published in Interview Magazine this week, casting the abortion giant as an imperiled defender of women and claiming those who end preborn lives are the ones truly deserving the life label. Perhaps the most controversial part of the interview was when the two ladies discussed the labels of the abortion debate. I also want us to consider our choice of language when we define these movements. The pro-choice/pro-life dichotomy is problematic to me, Wen said. Clinton agreed, saying she refuse[s]...

    President Donald Trump is canceling a contract that provides government funding to the University of California, San Francisco for research that issues fetal tissue harvested from elective abortions. The Trump administration first focused its sights on the contract this past September, with the National Institute of Health (NIH) warning UCSF that its $2 million annual contract for fetal tissue research would be curtailed to 90 days and possibly canceled altogether. Senior administration officials told The Daily Caller that the contract will be officially terminated Wednesday. The cancelation stems from a 9-month U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) review...

    When I was a little girl around the age of 7 in the late 1960s, the most exciting thing in the world was to persuade my parents to take me and my sisters to Sharp Hospital, up the road from where I lived in San Diego, to go see the newborn babies through the hospital window. In my little-kid mind, two things were very important - to see the giant statue of the stork carrying a baby at the hospital entrance, and to see the window with all the newborn babies and find the babies in the incubators, marveling at how tiny they were...

    Scientists have unearthed fossilized fungi in the remote Northwest Territories of the Canadian Arctic dating back to one billion years, in a discovery that could reshape our understanding of how life first arrived on land from the oceans. Fungi, the Hidden Kingdom, are not plants. Living things are organized for study into large, basic groups called kingdoms. Fungi were listed in the Plant Kingdom for many years. Then scientists learned that fungi show a closer relation to animals, but are unique and separate life forms. Most fungi build their cell walls out of chitin. This is the same material as...

    Adva Biton, the mother of Hilda Adelle, who was murdered in a stone-throwing attack in Samaria, gave birth Sunday to a seventh child. Following the birth, Biton wrote, "By the grace of God, thanks to Rabbi Meir Baal Haness, I gave birth to our seventh daughter on the same date of her sister, Adele, of blessed memory!

The new baby is Adelle's first younger sister. In 2013,...
