    The Satanic Temple released a statement Saturday challenging new rules proposed by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott which require aborted babies to be cremated or buried and go into effect Dec. 19th. The Satanic Temple called burial rites a “well-established component of religious practice” and said their members believe in “the inviolability of the body,” concluding that “as such these rules contradict our fundamental beliefs.” The Satanists invoked their First Amendment “right to practice our beliefs,” adding that “under the Religious Freedom Reform Act (RFRA), the State must present a compelling reason for why they want to enforce rules that inhibit...

    Washington D.C., Nov 25, 2016 / 03:59 am (CNA).- When the Democratic Party makes its decisions about leadership at the end of the month, the House Minority Leader will be a self-proclaimed “pro-choice Catholic.”Both current House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, and her challenger, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), profess to be Catholic but also support legalized abortion.Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been a member of the U.S. House of Representatives since 1987. She has consistently advocated in favor of legal abortion, and has earned high ratings from pro-abortion groups including Planned Parenthood Action Fund and NARAL.Ryan represents a district in Northeast Ohio...

    Men who want to have sex with women who aren't interested in taking pills or getting abortions need to strap it up, wrap it up, or get a vasectomy. When I was 24, I decided against using hormonal birth control or getting an abortion unless absolutely medically necessary. At that time, I was dating and having sex with a man for about six months. We always used condoms, but that did not completely eliminate the possibility that I could become pregnant if we slipped up. So, I figured I was obligated to tell him about the choices I'd made. “If...
  • Boston’s Catholic Mayor Vows to Fight for Abortion Access

    Mayor Martin Walsh of Boston, Massachusetts, has vowed to keep abortion clinics open in the city, even if President-elect Donald Trump succeeds with pro-life initiatives. Walsh said that if the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision is overturned, and the issue of legal abortion is again governed by the states, the city of Boston should probably have more abortion providers, to ensure that the procedure is available to women traveling from other states where abortion is banned. “That is something I am sure we will be focusing on as we move forward,” he said. Although President-elect Trump has never suggested...

Theophilous Washington, 20, of Washington, D.C., a junior at Millersville University, is charged in Lancaster County with criminal attempt to commit first-degree murder of an unborn child as well as reckless endangering.

    Vanity Fair magazine just ended its third annual “New Establishment Summit” in San Francisco, a three-day conclave bringing together “titans of technology, politics, business, media and the arts for inspiring conversations on the issues and innovations shaping the future.” More accurately, what the magazine’s predominantly liberal readership would deem “inspiring.” At least one of those conversations, between New York magazine writer Frank Rich and purported humorist/Vanity Fair contributing editor Fran Lebowitz, hardly qualifies. Their discussion turned inevitably to the presidential campaign and Lebowitz offered this on how she “knew Trump wouldn’t win” long before the pesky election that actually decides...

    Many Judeo-Christian leaders speak out against abortion, but the few who advocate for abortion often are the ones who get the most media attention.

    Salon Magazine has accused the Republican Party of being out of touch with “post-Christian America,” warning the GOP that if it doesn’t renege on its alliance with Christianity, it will soon become irrelevant. Ted Cruz’s failure to get the GOP nomination, Matthew Sheffield proclaims in Salon, “is a perfect window into trends that will set the pace of American politics for decades to come: Americans are moving away from Christianity, including people most likely to vote Republican.” To back up his claims, Sheffield cites the 2014 Pew Research study finding that 23 percent of Americans say they’re “unaffiliated” with any...

It'd be embarrassing for you & for me,” tweeted Dominican Father Thomas Petri, the vice president and academic dean of the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception at the Dominican House of Studies.

Five years later, the White House referred to the Hyde Amendment while defending taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. Now, the Democrats’ party platform is calling for repeal of the measure. According to a new poll, Americans are solidly opposed to public funding of abortion, including nearly half of voters who support abortion rights, and at least four out of 10 Democrats.

Co-hosts Joy Behar and CNN’s Sunny Hostin led the charge, claiming that Pence was “incompetent” for his views on everything from global warming to “women’s rights.” Their treatment of Pence was polar opposite of how Behar and Hostin gushed over possible Clinton VP pick Elizabeth Warren on the show just a few weeks ago. The panel began by joking about how "awkward" the Trump-Pence interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes was before Behar and Hostin aimed their targets on Pence. Jedediah Bila...

    Churches in California are officially subject to an onerous state regulation that requires them to pay for abortions, thanks to a ruling by the Obama administration. The troubling situation began in 2014 when the California Department of Managed Health Care reclassified abortion as a “basic health service” under the Affordable Care Act and ordered all insurance plans in the state to begin covering surgical abortions immediately. Even churches are not exempt from funding abortions. The churches filed a lawsuit against the regulation last October, and it has been moving through the courts. They also asked the Obama administration to uphold...

It wasn’t that specific, as she said, “A woman voting for Ted Cruz is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.” So, as a woman, you must vote for a pro-abortion candidate?

Mike Pence in March, is the second in the nation to ban abortions because of a genetic disability such as Down syndrome. It also bans abortions based solely on the unborn baby’s race or sex. The law includes several other abortion-related measures, such as a requirement that aborted or miscarried babies’ bodies be cremated or buried and another requirement that abortionists who have hospital admitting privileges renew them annually....

    A Planned Parenthood “manager of community engagement” removed a connection to her employer from her Twitter account this week after criticizing Hillary Clinton, in a move that suggests that unconditional support for Clinton is key to the abortion group. In a rare twist, the criticism was for Clinton not being pro-abortion enough. The criticism came in the wake of Clinton’s statement Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press that “the unborn person does not have Constitutional rights.” Though Clinton’s statement was clearly intended to convey as pro-abortion a position possible, Planned Parenthood employee Diana Arellano criticized Clinton for “calling a fetus...

    You can see the exact moment last week that Donald Trump made up his mind on whether women would face criminal punishment once he signed new restrictions into law. He is at a town hall with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, and, after Matthews badgers him for a while, he finally answers the question. “The answer is ... that,” Trump says, eyes looking to the side in thought, “there has to be some form of punishment.” He punctuates “has” with a hand gesture. Done. Final. But as it turns out — and as it has turned out repeatedly over the course of...

    It’s a subject doctors, health providers and medical experts are discussing feverishly, but often quietly: Whether parents should undergo genetic tests, either before conception or after, to determine if their unborn child might have a serious genetic disorder. Hanging over the debate is the specter of eugenics—fears that the ability to manipulate the health of our future babies could devalue the sanctity of life.

    A Planned Parenthood abortion clinic caught selling live intact aborted babies in an undercover sting operation by citizens journalists has joined the lawsuit filed against David Daleiden, who headed the undercover investigation. In August, Daleiden released a video catching a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells “fully intact” aborted babies. The video makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die. The fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research...

    EMILY’s List is teaming up with actress Lena Dunham in an effort aimed at rallying female millennial voters for Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton. The political action committee, which backs pro-abortion Democratic women, announced the launch of its entertainment industry “Creative Council” on Sunday. “There is a true cultural moment around feminism and women’s leadership – and EMILY’s List can harness it and make sure it lasts,” said EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock in a statement. “We’ve been reaching out to non-political industries where women are working together to disrupt a boys’ club – and finding stories and sisterhoods like...

    West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has vetoed a a bill to ban the dismemberment abortion method that tears unborn babies limb from limb. The West Virginia Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, SB 10, successfully made it through the state legislature and would make it the latest state to ban the abortion method. State lawmakers are expected to override the governor’s veto. The bill passed by a vote of 86-13 after more than an hour of debate. Any abortion practitioner who violates the ban would lose his medical license, essentially prohibiting him from ever doing abortions again. This...

    I am a busy parish priest half-way through Lent with Holy Week and Easter in sight in my rear view mirror -- so I quite frankly did not have time this week to write about what it means to be prayerfully pro-choice... again. But the orchestrated efforts to turn back the clock on women's reproductive freedom left me no other principled choice. It boggles my mind that in the year 2016 we are still battling Congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, are subject to smear campaigns using doctored videos to villainize health care providers and need to show up at...

    Is that why he refuses to release his tax returns? After it was revealed this summer that Planned Parenthood was selling the organs and body parts of aborted human beings to biotech companies, Donald Trump said he wasn't sure if the organization should lose its federal funding. He even went out of his way to praise Planned Parenthood's good work. Meet the Press host Chuck Todd found Trump's stance interesting, so he asked Trump if he had ever been a Planned Parenthood donor. "It's possible," Trump replied. TODD: You were pretty--you were somewhat defending Planned Parenthood earlier this week. It...

    If you’re a sensitive progressive who is sent to the fainting couch every time you encounter any words you find upsetting there’s a new offering from Google which should vastly improve your life. In particular, if you find the idea of people who oppose abortion to be distressing and are sent into apoplectic fits when their ideas are published on the internet, it’s a dangerous world indeed. You can visit any number of news and opinion sites where the horrible term “pro-life” appears, insulting your sensibilities and inflaming your sense of outrage. Well, that can all be a thing of...

    On today's Meet the Press, Chuck Todd helped perpetuate the myth that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. Interviewing Donald Trump, Todd said "Democrats will say the money they give to Planned Parenthood does not go to abortions. That the money they give to Planned Parenthood only goes to other women's health issues including mammograms and things like that." Let's make this absolutely clear: Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms. Its own FAQ on the matter makes that clear. Even the Washington Post says "the myth that Planned Parenthood actually offers mammogram X-rays to patients has been long debunked, and needs to...

    Two professors representing the law schools of Marquette University and Georgetown University, along with a Georgetown Law student, joined 110 female attorneys in signing an amicus curiae brief to the U.S.Supreme Court in which the women argued that they would not have been able to achieve "personal or professional successes" in life "were it not for their ability to obtain safe and legal abortions." Lisa A. Mazzie, professor of legal writing at Marquette University Law School, and Jill Morrison, executive director of the Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program and visiting professor of law at Georgetown University Law Center,...

    Angered by the 40 Days for Life pro-life campaigns in England, a group of abortion activists who call themselves Christians recently formed a counter-campaign. The UK blog Abortion Rights reports the new group Christians for Choice formed in direct response to the pro-life 40 Days for Life campaigns. The pro-abortion group said it is made up of abortion supporters from various Christian denominations. Edem Barbara Ntumy, one of the group founders, said she doesn’t think her faith and support of abortion are “diametrically opposed.” “The rhetoric of Christian anti-choice groups has drowned out the voices of pro-choice Christians,” Ntumy said....

    Chelsea Clinton says she left a pro-life Baptist church when she was six years old because they taught her about abortion. The 35-year-old reportedly said she was tired of critics questioning her family's religion during a recent fundraiser for Hillary Clinton. "I find it quite insulting sometimes when people say to my mom, my dad or me that they question our faith," Clinton said. "I was raised in a Methodist church and I left the Baptist church before my dad did because I didn't know why they were talking to me about abortion when I was 6 in Sunday School....
