    Students for Life of America has released a disgusting new video showing a 15-year-old pro-life student who was punched in the face by an unidentified woman after standing outside a Planned Parenthood in an effort to prevent abortions. Purity Thomas is a member of Students for Life of America, in Roanoke, Virginia. On Saturday, she was praying and speaking to women in hopes of changing their hearts and saving their children from abortion near a Planned Parenthood abortion facility. Suddenly, a bystander walked up threateningly to Purity. The woman claimed she would "beat her up" and "f**k her up", according...

    The Little Sisters of the Poor are heading back to court to defend themselves against the Obama administration’s Health and Human Services mandate to provide contraception, yet again. In an unusual political move, Pennsylvania and California sued the Little Sisters, demanding the same group who won at the Supreme Court in Zubik v. Burwell provide contraceptives in their state. In early October, HHS issued a new rule that protects religious non-profits like the Little Sisters of the Poor from providing anything like contraception that would violate their religious beliefs. In a press release, Mark Rienzi, senior counsel at Becket and lead attorney...

    Five states are going to court to try to preserve an Obamacare mandate that forces employers and insurance plans to offer free birth control.California, Delaware, Maryland, New York and Virginia late Thursday filed a request for a preliminary injunction to stop federal regulations that weaken Obamacares birth control mandate. California had sued to stop the rollback after it was announced by the Trump administration in early October. These backwards rules will deny millions of women across the U.S. access to healthcare, unconstitutionally permitting discrimination against women, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Thursday about the new court filing. The Affordable...

    Once again, Virginia voters elected a radical pro-abortion governor in Democrat Ralph Northam. Northam beat pro-life Republican Ed Gillespie Tuesday in a closely watched race, the AP reports. NBC reports Northam won with 54 percent of the vote, while Gillespie received 45 percent. The current lieutenant governor, Northam raised nearly $11 million for his campaign, including huge contributions from the abortion industry. Earlier this year, the abortion business Planned Parenthood said it planned to spend $3 million to back Northam. Northams position on abortion is extreme and out of touch with most voters, according to the National Right to Life...

    An en banc federal appeals court has reinstated an order requiring the U.S. government to allow an abortion for a 17-year-old immigrant who is being held in a federally funded Texas shelter because she is in the country illegally. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued a 6-3 order (PDF) that overturned an Oct. 20 decision by a D.C. Circuit panel that had delayed the abortion, report Politico, BuzzFeed News and Reuters. The earlier, 2-1 panel decision had made it possible for the girl to have the abortion without government involvement because it allowed time...

    no link, just an observation.... open to correction...BUT. While October has been hyped in the media as a "pink" month, standing for breast cancer research, have you noticed that THIS year, the Susan G Komen Foundation--big Planned Parenthood funders--are NOT mentioned prominently? I wonder if SGK is still behind these efforts, but are choosing to mute its involvement. Recall a few years back many of us chose to STOP donating to Komen when the organization BACKTRACKED on a pledge to stop giving money to the abortion mills.

    U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan ordered the federal government to allow a teenaged illegal immigrant in its custody to have an abortion. Judge Chutkan said she was astounded that the Trump administration had sought to prevent the killing of the unborn child. Chutkan, a native of Jamaica, was nominated by Barack Obama. According to lawyers acting on behalf of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the 17-year-old girl had crossed the US border illegally last month. Moreover, the government lawyers argued that she has no right to an elective abortion while in federal custody, unless it is a medical necessity. The...

    While the pro-abortion crowd celebrates the fall this week of Pennsylvania Rep. Tim Murphy, the rest of us got a useful reminder: Sleazy men make out pretty darn well, thanks to easy abortions. Murphys political career came to an abrupt halt after the Pittsburgh Post Gazette caught him pressuring his mistress to have an abortion, even while he pretended to be pro-life. The pregnancy turned out to be a false alarm, but Murphys hypocrisy and the end of his career were real. After meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan, he announced he wouldnt seek re-election. Its nice to...

    CHICAGO -- Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner signed legislation Thursday allowing state health insurance and Medicaid coverage for abortions, ending months of speculation after the Republican reversed his stance on the issue last spring. The General Assembly controlled by Democrats approved the measure in May but delayed sending it to Rauner until Monday, in part because he has changed his mind about support of the plan. As a candidate in 2014, Rauner said he would support expanding coverage for abortions. But last April he said he opposed the idea and said the state should focus on improving the economy. The proposal...

    Governor Bruce Rauner has stabbed conservatives in the backagain. But much worse, he has ensured that thousands more babies will be killed in the womb every year in Illinois, and taxpayers will pay for their deaths. Despite his commitment to veto HB 40, which requires taxpayers to fund the intentional killing of humans in uteroincluding healthy humans of any gestational agethrough Medicaid and state employee insurance plans, Rauner is signing it into law. This is the same man who during the gubernatorial campaign told IFA that he believes life begins at conception. Claiming that life begins at conception and then...

    HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Pro-life pregnancy centers went to court Friday to try to overturn a new law that they argue requires them to publicly post abortion referrals. During a hearing before U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson, attorneys for Calvary Chapel Pearl Harbor and the Aloha Pregnancy Care and Counseling Center argued that the law violates their right to free speech and religion because it forces them to post signs that interfere with their faith. "It compels even non-medical pregnancy centers to recite what amounts to a government-scripted advertisement for abortion," said Kevin Connelly, Calvary's attorney. "It forces a church, Calvary...

    Planned Parenthood walked into a buzzsaw over their latest statement on Trump's repeal of Obama's Deferred Action of Childhood Arrival (DACA) executive order. In an email to supporters, Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, criticized Trump's decision - by claiming that every person has the "right to life." She wrote: "Here at Planned Parenthood, we firmly believe that every person has the right to live, work, and raise a family freely and without the threat of deportation or separation. We believe in every person's right to control their own destiny..." Jaws dropped all across Twitter, at how incredibly un-self...
