    Lena Dunham stirred up controversy during a recent episode of her podcast by saying she wishes shed had an abortion. While hosting Women of the Hour, the Girls creator recalled a visit to a Texas Planned Parenthood years ago, during which a girl asked her to share her experience with abortion. I sort of jumped. I havent had an abortion, I told her. I wanted to make it really clear to her that, as much as I was going out and fighting for other womens options, I myself had never had an abortion,recalled Dunham, 30. And I realized then that...

    VATICAN CITY, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Pope Francis on Monday extended indefinitely to all Roman Catholic priests the power to forgive abortion, a right previously reserved for bishops or special confessors. Francis, who has made a more inclusive and forgiving Roman Catholic Church a characteristic of his papacy, made the announcement in a document known as an "apostolic letter" after Sunday's close of the Church's "Holy Year of Mercy". He said he wanted to "restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life" but "there is no sin...

    Filmmaker Tracy Droz Tragos hopes that her new documentary, Abortion: Stories Women Tell, will move people to compassion when they listen to women share the difficult circumstances that led them to choose abortion. Unfortunately, her film extends no compassion for unborn children. Tragos told Pop Sugar that she was troubled by all the new abortion restrictions in her home state of Missouri. She said she decided to base her new documentary in Missouri and feature the stories of women affected by abortion and the state laws. Tragos (pictured) never had an abortion herself, but she interviewed more than 40 women...

While important questions remain, 911 records just obtained by Operation Rescue, along with a police report provided by long-time Michigan pro-life activist Lynn Mills, shed a bit more light on what happened to 24-year old Cree Erwin in her final hours of life as she struggled with...

    Abortion is unique because pregnancy is. The fact that an unborn baby resides entirely inside the body of another human being with rights of her own makes mincemeat of our whole approach to justice, which is based on individual rights, balanced against the rights of others and the claims of the common good. Yes, the baby has the right to life, but the mother has the right to control her body, too, so how can we disentangle the claims of two people who literally inhabit the same space, eat the same food, and are intimately related? To what else...

    The Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio is getting some positive publicity this week after it placed pro-abortion billboards across the city. The billboards advertise the pro-abortion website and the words, “End the silence. End the shame.”, a campaign to portray abortion in a positive light, Mashable reports. Nancy Starner, Preterm’s director of development and communications, said her abortion clinic wants to end the “stigma” of abortion by promoting women’s “diverse” abortion experiences – in other words, women’s abortion experiences that fit their pro-abortion agenda. “We wanted to move away from political black-and-white abstract issue,” Starner said, “and look...

    Diane Derzis is the owner of the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi and she is no stranger to some strange quotes. Through botched abortions, dozens of pro-life laws providing women the protection for their medical health her facility ignores, and lawsuits stopping the state from having her abortion practitioners get admitting privileges at local hospitals, Derzis has kept the Jackson Women’s Health Organization going. Derzis started working as an abortion clinic counselor shortly after the first clinic opened in Alabama in the 1970s. And she talks openly about the abortion she had when she was 20, newly married and...

It was the right decision for me and my husband, and it wasn’t a difficult decision. Before becoming president of Planned Parenthood eight years ago, I hadn’t really talked about it beyond family and close friends. But I’m here to say, when politicians argue and shout about abortion, they’re talking about me—and millions of other women around the country. At the time I thought the “it wasn’t a difficult decision” line was terribly insensitive to Richards’ three surviving children. They...

    Many abortion supporters believe that abortion should be legal without any restrictions. They say no to ultrasounds, counseling, or waiting periods before abortions; no to parental consent for minors seeking abortions; and no to bans on painful late abortions and federally funded abortions. Clearly, their ideology is that abortion should be funded by our tax-dollars and permissible for any reason. They also claim that abortion is harmless and access to it should be a womans fundamental right because shes the boss of her own body. In fact, these days we hear that abortion is actually good for women. Yes, thats...

    The "War on Women" isn't just a war on women. Trans men and gender-non-conforming people are losing their rights too, and we need to rework how we frame these "women's issues." The last month has been particularly brutal for abortion rights activists and women's health advocates, as state after state has proposed and/or passed various bills that restrict abortion access and undermine abortion care. In response, there has been a re-energized reproductive rights movement, with many across the nation stating that they "Stand With Texas Women" or "Stand With North Carolina Women."

    GENEVA, Switzerland, May 23, 2013 (National Right to Life News) - Legalized abortion is widely touted as beneficial to women, but a wealth of medical and psychological evidence suggests otherwise, according to a new analysis of decades of research. The analysis was released today at the World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life Global Outreach (MCCL GO) and National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund (NRLC), an NGO based in Washington, D.C. Jeanne E. Head, R.N., Patrick Buckley and Scott Fischbach, who are in Geneva introducing the analysis, are calling for a renewed emphasis on...

    I write these words chiefly to women and girls who have had an abortion. Still, it is my humble hope and honest prayer that anyone weighing this life-versus-death choice might also read them with an open mind and a hearing heart. I share these truths in love. Some of you already know them. Others deny them. Yet truths they remain. It is through obedience to Christ and in the authority of His Spirit that I write you this letter. It may be difficult to read, but I pray you will read it.

    September 14, 2012 ( - In a study published last week in the European Journal of Public Health, Priscilla Coleman and colleagues report that mothers who have experienced natural pregnancy loss or induced abortion are more likely to die over a 25-year period than those who have experienced only giving birth. Dr Coleman, a Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Bowling Green State University, responds here to MercatorNets questions about the study. What was your aim in this study? The study was undertaken to provide reliable data pertaining to the relative risk of death associated with distinct reproductive...

    August 13, 2012 ( - Wednesday is late term abortion day at Orlando Womens Center (the clinic where I had my abortions 12 years ago). When I first started visiting the sidewalks of abortion clinics to pray and minister, I had no idea that late term abortions were even legal. I remember hearing about the Partial Birth Abortion Ban in 2007 and assumed (like most) that this stopped abortions late in a womans pregnancy. Shock cant even begin to describe my feeling when I first counseled on late term day. These girls are so pregnant, I kept thinking to myself....

    ...feeling the pressure to conform, Kristen gave in to her 16-year-old boyfriend Carls continual pestering for sex when her parents were out at work one day. She... anticipated a romantic encounter. But the harsh reality was that losing her virginity so early turned out to be one of the worst experiences of Kristens life. It has also had lasting repercussions, since she is convinced that having sex at such a young age made her far more promiscuous in later years than she otherwise might have been. We had sex on the bathroom floor because it was the only room with...

    May 22, 2012 (The Crescat) - The bumper sticker read, Having an abortion does not make you un-pregnant, it makes you the mother of a dead baby. The word mother struck me because mother is such a powerful word. It conjures many meanings, and when a woman becomes one she is fundamentally changed. Mother as a verb means to nurture, care for and protect. Mother as a noun means a female person who is pregnant with or gives birth to a child; or a female person whose egg unites with sperm, resulting in the conception of a child. By this...

    Once, at a smart wedding in Northamptonshire when I was about 30, someone handed me a newborn baby and my skin broke out in hot hives. In Brazil, I met a ten-year-old street kid. I fed him, let him sleep and shower in my hotel room, bought him clothes, and felt an overwhelming desire to protect and nurture him. I had never before felt such a forceful maternal instinct. These events were profoundly physical reactions, both shocking to me. Just around the time of my trip to Brazil, the ghost of my never-born came back to haunt me. I began...

    A guest writer for the New York Times has described her daydreams about the infant daughter she aborted, but says that she is thankful she has been spared the agonizing sadness of guilt and regret suffered by countless other post-abortive mothers, and that she doesnt grieve the child lost to abortion. Susan Heath of New York described her gratitude for the ease of obtaining her own abortion at Planned Parenthood years ago when, after bringing four children into the world, her contraception failed. Im pregnant but Im not trapped. All I had to do was call the clinic and make...
