    NEW YORK (AP) - U.S. abortions continue to fall, according to a new federal report released Wednesday. Federal statistics show abortions have been in a general decline for about 25 years. The number of reported abortions dropped 4 percent in 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. About 699,000 abortions were reported to the federal government that year. That's about 31,000 fewer than the year before. ... ...Declines were seen in states that have passed anti-abortion laws as well as in more liberal states.

    In an article celebrating the incestuous relationship of a brother and sister who met for the first time as adults, Cosmopolitan magazine defies “the last taboo” and argues that, by virtue of shared genetics, a brother and sister coupling creates a “perfect storm” that others might be missing out on.The leftwing publication has a history of pushing liberal social causes—whether its celebrating a woman who posted on Facebook a video of herself having an abortion, advocating for gender neutral restrooms, or praising the Kardashian/Jenner family as “America’s First Family.” Now Cosmo is pushing the taboo of incest and seemingly overlooking...

    MADISON, Wisconsin, November 23, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – A bill to stop transgender students from using restrooms and other facilities of the opposite sex faced a contentious, hours-long hearing on Thursday. But a spokesperson for the bill's sponsor in the state Senate says it is designed to protect children, and that the bill accounts for the struggles of transgender teenagers. And a state activist told LifeSiteNews that "this bill is a reasonable response to a complex problem." "It's clearly not an easy issue for public schools to deal with," said Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action, who e-mailed LifeSiteNews during the...

    A recent story in the Washington Post left me agog! I mean really folks, how intentionally pointed and disjointed can a report that is really not a report be? Curious? The Post states that “nearly 2 percent of Texas women say they tried to induce abortion.” The headline is generated by a report entitled “Knowledge, Opinion and Experience Related to Abortion Self-Induction in Texas” prepared by the Texas Policy Evaluation Project. The report and the Post story concur that self-induced abortions in Texas have taken a dramatic turn since the abortion clinic regulation bill was passed and signed into law...

    MONTGOMERY, Alabama, November 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Pockets of resistance to the Supreme Court's judicial activism in constitutionalizing homosexual "marriage" are cropping up across the United States. Not isolated pockets, either. Large, organized pockets. The latest groups to officially resist Obergefell v Hodges include Alabama pediatricians and an entire church denomination, petitioning the state Supreme Court to disobey federal law in order to "protect" churches, families, and children. The American College of Pediatricians (ACP) submitted a "Friend of the Court" brief November 6. "It is in the best interest of children and this State to preserve the fundamental and immutable...

Yesterday morning, in a comment sent exclusively to LifeSiteNews, Dr. Carson said his remarks had been "taken out of context and misinterpreted." "When I used the term 'much ado about nothing,' my point was that the media tried to create the impression that the pro-life community was nutty and going way overboard with the support of the patient," Dr. Carson told LifeSiteNews yesterday.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has announced additional donations over three years totaling $120 million more for their pet project, a global initiative to combat childbirth among the poorest of the world. FP 2020 had a goal of getting contraceptives to 120 million more women and girls by its namesake year. A status report showed only an additional 25 million, far short of the trajectory needed...

Jeb Bush, disqualify them both from serving as president of the United States, a leading pro-life leader said today. "We have seen what it is like to have a president who does not value every life equally, and we certainly do not need another," said Troy Newman, the president of Operation Rescue.

    Ben Carson may be a pro-life Republican presidential candidate when it comes to the issue of abortions, but new comments the doctor made over the weekend about the Terri Schiavo case are causing concerns for pro-life voters. Carson thinks the federal and state governments overreached when they attempted to protect Terri Schiavo from a painful 14-day starvation and dehydration death. Despite the best efforts of pro-life lawmakers in Congress and the Florida state legislature, where lawmakers approved pro-life laws to allow Terri’s family to take their case to federal courts and to allow then-Governor Jeb Bush to try to protect...

Despite this, the court ultimately ruled against the midwife, stating that maternity centers have a “duty to ensure that women have effective access to abortion.” A U.S. legal defense organization which filed a friend-of-the-court brief on the midwife’s behalf has criticized the ruling as a violation of Swedish and international law. “We are disappointed the court did not affirm Swedish law...

How is the legalization and relentless promotion of “assisted suicide” not the “glorification of suicide”? I’m tired of all of transparently mindless babble about how “assisted suicide” is not a slippery slope. The phrase itself screams with denial: “Wanna kill yourself? Here, let us help you with that.” When helping people kill themselves is referred to as “end-of-life care” rather than “accomplice to murder,” who will be picking up the phone at the other end of the suicide prevention...

    Not all American states have placidly accepted the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v Hodges to declare same-sex marriage constitutional. Some are listening to advice from legal scholars that “state officeholders” should “refuse to accept Obergefell as binding precedent”.If this gathers momentum, there could eventually be some scope for state governors to ignore Obergefell as a precedent. Instead, they could argue that the Court had spoken authoritatively only for the parties involved in that case alone. It’s not likely, but a crack may be opening.Here is what happened in Mississippi.Lauren Beth Czekala-Chatham, a 52-year-old credit analyst, who already had two...

    It did not take long for marriage revisionism to show its hostility to the relationship among children, mothers, and fathers. Just a few months after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that all states must eliminate from their legal definition of marriage the essential involvement of man and woman, conflicts between this redefinition and the fundamental rights of children to be connected to both father and mother are already making their way through the courts.In these conflicts, children’s rights might seem to enjoy an advantage of priority. Even states that redefined marriage several years ago have left in...

Last month, House Republicans passed a bill to repeal several components of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through reconciliation, a budget process that avoids a Senate filibuster and requires a simple majority vote instead of the normal 60. That bill also included a measure to defund Planned Parenthood, which may need to be pulled if the Senate Parliamentarian rules it is not a budgetary measure.

Jorgensen’s blood alcohol level was .06 and the anti-anxiety medication Clonazepam was in her system.” The doctors delivered her baby by caesarian section, and for six days the child clung to life, but then died. The mother was initially found guilty of manslaughter, but on appeal a five-member majority of the court of appeals...

But from 2002 to 2008 they barnstormed, fibbed, exaggerated, hyped, and caricatured to get government funding so that they could play God with human embryos. It was a brutal battle in which truth came second. "People need a fairy tale," said Ronald D.G.

    Nov. 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - What does the Left want our society to look like? What is their endgame? This is a question that often comes up in the circles I travel in. There are many answers to that question, of course, but I think one encapsulates things quite nicely: Universities. In order to see what the ideal endgame for the Left is, we simply need to look at institutions where they hold nearly complete power and impose their agenda with totalitarian impunity. Freedom of speech, for example, is virtually non-existent. Universities claim to be marketplaces of ideas, but in...
  • Nothing Natural about 'Natural Death'

    Recently the culture of death took the ambiguous term “natural death” and adapted it to fit into its roadmap to hell. For Catholics, the phrase “natural death” is best identified with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which teaches that “death is the end of earthly life,” not the death of the soul, and states, “In a sense bodily death is natural.” Catholic statements on the right to life usually include: “The Church affirms the right to life of all persons, from conception to natural death.” But as we have shown elsewhere, the word “conception” is erroneous in today’s topsy-turvy...

    “Not far from us, flames were leaping up from a ditch, gigantic flames. They were burning something. A lorry drew up at the pit and delivered its load–little children. Babies! Around us, everyone was weeping….. Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp …. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children, whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent sky.” –Elie Wiesel, Night October 29, 2015 (TheBridgehead) -- I’ve now gone through the second set of leaked Planned Parenthood videos, the three part series entitled “Fetal Disposition,” or in layman’s...

    Defund the WPA!Oh, wait, the Works Progress Administration, a Roosevelt New Deal federal agency providing Depression-era unemployed with jobs, was dissolved on June 30, 1943. By then the United States was deep in the Second World War, recruiting everyone possible for its military, and putting everybody else to work in war-related industries. The WPA quickly became the relic of another time.Now, there's another relic of a terribly misguided past that is still drinking from the government bucket.Not since Dr. Frankenstein's minions went scouring through cemeteries and morgues for body parts have we seen anything as sinister as Planned Parenthood's tissue...

    CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts, October 29, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy told a Harvard Law School audience that government employees with religious convictions about marriage should resign. The Ronald Reagan appointee said on Wednesday that if a public official has a moral objection to homosexuality, he must either follow the law or quit public service. The judge's comment came in answer to a question a student asked about government officials who disagree with the Supreme Court's decisions on gay marriage, or abortion, and if those citizens have the constitutional right to act according to their sincerely held moral...

    The father of Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.), a Republican presidential candidate, said Wednesday that LGBT activists will try to legalize pedophilia. “I think that’s the next thing that they’re going to push, to try to legalize pedophiles,” Cruz told BuzzFeed News. “Pedophilia, you have all these laws to forget about — we have laws on the books about statutory rape. You have to basically throw away the statutory rape laws to legalize pedophilia.” Rafael Cruz, a pastor, made the remarks at the World Congress of Families, an annual gathering of social conservatives held this year in Salt Lake City. He...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- A Navy chaplain who got his job back in September says he's glad to be cleared of charges -- but that dark days are ahead for Christians. “The days of going to Church on Sunday and going throughout the week and not ever having anyone talk to you, I think, [are] gone,” Lieutenant Commander Wesley Modder told The Daily Signal. “We live in a very secular society, very postmodern. And people want to know what you believe. Even at the risk of being maybe attacked.” Modder's case became a cause célèbre for social...

    YouTube: Fetal Disposition [2/3] SAN FRANCISCO, October 27, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - An undercover video of the National Abortion Federation caught the owner of a chain of abortion facilities saying that burning aborted babies' bodies for energy is "a great idea" and "a really good solution" for society. The remark came during a panel on "fetal disposition" - disposing of the bodies of aborted babies - at the NAF's 2014 annual convention in San Francisco. During a Q-and-A session, a Canadian abortionist announced, "Just before I came I had to handle some media" requests dealing "with a big, sort of, explosion...

    WALES, U.K., October 26, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Author and '60s radical feminist Germaine Greer is coming under fire after telling the BBC that transgender "women," such as Bruce Jenner, are not women and that they don't "look like, sound like, or behave like women.” Greer was responding to a petition that was being passed around by leftist activists demanding that Cardiff University cancel a lecture by the radical feminist scheduled for November 18 because of her history of making statements questioning transgenderism. Criticizing Glamour magazine’s decision to name Jenner "Woman of the Year," Greer told the BBC, "I think misogyny...

    HARTFORD, Connecticut, October 26, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Melanie and Floyd Foster's baby died, they say, because their doctor, OB/GYN Corinne de Cholnoky, ruptured the baby's membrane while trying to remove an IUD. As a direct result, they say, their premature baby was later born alive but died after two hours. Because the baby was only 22 weeks along, Dr. de Cholnoky says the baby was not viable and therefore not a person, and no wrongful death occurred. Because the baby was born alive, the Fosters – and the judge presiding over the case – say the baby was a person,...

    The secular progressive tactic of advocating death in the name of liberty continues, this time in the state of California, where Governor Jerry Brown recently signed a bill legalizing physician-assisted suicide in that state. This makes California the fourth state to embrace the practice, after Oregon, Washington, and Vermont. Commenting on his decision to sign the bill, Governor Brown remarked that were he afflicted with a painful terminal illness he would not want to suffer in his final days of life, the implication being that physician-assisted suicide is a means for individuals to free themselves from the physical suffering and...

    On May 30, 2008, defendant, driving eastbound on Whiskey Road in Suffolk County, entered the westbound lane and struck the vehicle of Robert and Mary Kelly head on, killing them both. At the time of the collision, defendant was 34 weeks pregnant. She was taken to a local hospital where, due to signs of fetal distress, she consented to an emergency cesarean section. Despite the best efforts of hospital personnel, the baby died six days later. An autopsy confirmed that the cause of death was due to injuries sustained in the accident.... Following deliberations, the jury returned a verdict finding...
