    (CNN)As the Democratic primary winds down to a close, Green Party likely nominee Dr. Jill Stein said she wanted Bernie Sanders supporters to "know that there's a plan B here to continue to fight that revolution." Sanders went from a long-shot candidate to the head of a national progressive movement in months, and Stein said she believed many of his supporters, turned off by presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's record and a bruising primary season, might go Stein's way. Stein offered condolences to Sanders supporters and praised Sanders for running a "revolutionary" movement that spoke to the issues she also...

    Emergency Contraception at Catholic Institutions: Bishops Can No Longer Claim Ignorance by Dr. Brian KoppFebruary 24, 2015Photo courtesy of Mike Mozart. The February 2015 Linacre Quarterly (the official journal of the Catholic Medical Association) features a groundbreaking study by Chris Kahlenborn, MD of The Polycarp Research Institute titled Mechanism of action of levonorgestrel emergency contraception. The study, contrasting the theoretical basis on which emergency contraception (otherwise known as “Plan B”) is claimed to function with the facts and statistics of the most recent research outlining the mechanism by which they cause early abortions, is sure to cause heartburn among...

    (CNSNews.com) – The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is advancing federal regulations that require federally funded organizations caring for illegal alien minors who are in the United States without their parents (Unaccompanied Children or UC) and who may have been sexually abused access to “emergency contraception” services. “Emergency contraception” includes abortion-inducing drugs. These care providers currently include Catholic and other faith-based organizations that oppose abortion, according to the Center for Family and Human Rights or C-FAM, a Catholic advocacy group. The Interim Final Rule was published in the Federal Register on Dec. 24,...

    February 18, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Pro-life advocates are urging Catholic hospitals to reconsider their use of the Plan B “morning-after pill” in light of a new meta-review of past studies claiming that despite its being marketed as “emergency contraception,” it is statistically more likely to cause early abortion than prevent pregnancy.According to the drug’s manufacturers, Plan B’s primary method of action is to suppress ovulation, thereby making conception impossible.Some Catholic hospitals authorize the use of the pills by rape victims if it can be proven that the woman has not yet ovulated.But according to Dr. Christopher Kahlenborn, who co-authored the...

But if there is no deal - hopefully (there will be) - and if we see that Germany remains rigid and wants to blow apart Europe, then we have the obligation to go to Plan B. Plan B is to get funding from another source," he told Greek television show that ran in to early Tuesday. "It could the United States at best, it could be Russia,...

    A Plan B One-Step emergency contraceptive box is seen in New York, April 5, 2013. A federal judge on Friday ordered the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to make "morning-after" emergency contraception pills available without a prescription to all girls of reproductive age. The District of Columbia has delayed a vote on a bill mandating all businesses cover abortion in their insurance programs regardless of the business owner's moral objections. In a decision made on Tuesday afternoon, the Council of the District of Columbia pulled the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014 off the agenda. Months after the D.C.-based...

    PORTLAND, Ore. – Kristen K. Waggoner, lead counsel representing a pharmacy owner and two pharmacists opposed to Washington state regulations that would force them to dispense drugs that can terminate human life after conception, will be available for media interviews Thursday following oral arguments at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. “No one should be forced to choose between their religious convictions and their family-owned businesses and livelihoods. This choice is neither necessary nor constitutional,” said Waggoner, senior vice president of legal services for Alliance Defending Freedom and counsel with Seattle-based Ellis, Li & McKinstry PLLC. “The...

    Senate Democrats’ effort to reverse the Supreme Court’s “Hobby Lobby” ruling on birth control could not overcome a Republican filibuster Wednesday, exposing the partisan divide over how to balance women’s health rights with religious liberty ahead of November’s congressional contests. The chamber’s 56-43 vote was not enough to green-light the “Not My Boss’ Business Act” for final consideration, even though Republicans Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Mark Kirk of Illinois and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska broke party ranks and voted to put the bill on the floor. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, changed his vote to “no” at...

    Poverty, violence and other issues aside, women everywhere are focused on being depressed after hearing the “anti-woman” ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.and Wheaton College v. Sylvia Burwell last week. Hobby Lobby and Wheaton College became embroiled in litigation due to Obamacare’s requirement that for-profit employers provide abortifacients to employees, despite their owners’ Christian beliefs. As we all know, there is no issue or right more important to women everywhere than to force all employers to subsidize their use of abortifacients. It doesn’t matter that women can easily buy the abortifacient Plan B...

    Amazon has recently made the morning-after pill Plan B, a so-called emergency contraceptive, available online. For about $20, anyone can have an abortion-inducing drug with high doses of contraceptive hormones shipped right to their door step. (And when we say “anyone,” that includes statutory rapists who want to use the drug on young victims without their consent.) On the other hand, to obtain low-dose hormonal birth control pills, you’ll have to schedule a doctor’s appointment, be examined, and obtain a prescription. According to Students for Life of America, an organization working to expose the dangers and victimizing potential of Plan...

    President Obama’s signature healthcare law is headed back to the Supreme Court in a high-stakes case that could redefine the limits of religious freedom in the United States. The high court on Tuesday will hear challenges to ObamaCare’s contentious “birth control mandate,” which requires companies to offer contraceptive services to workers as part of their insurance coverage. If successful, the challenge could peel away a significant portion of the mandate, potentially affecting preventive health coverage for millions of women and striking a major blow to the law itself. But the court’s ruling could also have far-reaching implications for religious liberty...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., March 3, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Less than a year after approving Plan B One-Step for over-the-counter sales, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has said generic versions of Plan B can be sold without a prescription. Last July, a court order forced the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to sell the emergency contraception without age limitations and without a prescription. The decision came after years of lobbying by leftist groups to allow over-the-counter access to the potent, and potentially abortifacient drug, to underage girls. “The FDA is doubling down on the harmful and dangerous quest make...

    Using artificial contraception to avoid pregnancy is a mortal sin, according to the teachings of the Catholic Church.While only the Catholic Church maintains this teaching on contraception, it would be a better world if everyone did.Paul VI was a prophet when he told the world that great societal evils would follow upon the widespread use of contraception: a loosening of morals, an objectification of women, family breakdown and all the rest of the pathologies that have visited us like furies.Many of us also hold that contraception also leads inevitably to abortion. After all, according to national statistics, 94 percent...

    The CVS drug store chain has announced it will halt the sale of tobacco products in its store beginning in October, but the retailer will continue to sell Plan B: One-Step, an abortifacient that is for sale without prescription to anyone regardless of age. “Ending the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS/pharmacy is simply the right thing to do for the good of our customers and our company,” CVS announced on its website. “The sale of tobacco products is inconsistent with our purpose—helping people on their path to better health.” If the company is concerned about public health,...

    Any discussion of Obamacare’s “contraception mandate” must include the fact that the most commonly used emergency contraceptives “can cause the death of a human embryo,” according to a new report by the Washington-based Charlotte Lozier Institute. “Numerous studies have shown that the most popular emergency contraceptives can cause the death of embryos. For the sake of full and accurate informed consent for patients and for the sake of the integrity of the medical profession and research community, this reality must be acknowledged,” writes Susan E. Wills, associate scholar at the institute and author of “New Studies Show All Emergency Contraceptives...
