  • Local Church Leaves United Methodist Church Over Its Support for Abortion

    A Mississippi United Methodist Church recently voted to leave its denomination, in part, because of the denomination’s position on abortion. In the past, the United Methodist Church has been affiliated with the pro-abortion group Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and some of its pastors continue to support pro-abortion causes. The denomination does not describe abortion as a sin, either. Its position statement describes abortion as a “complex” issue. It says: “Our belief in the sanctity of unborn human life makes us reluctant to approve abortion. But we are equally bound to respect the sacredness of the life and well-being of...
  • The Real Reason Toys R Us Is Closing That No One Wants to Talk About: Birthrates

    If you're a parent, you've had at least one passing discussion on the closure of Toys R Us. The mega-giant toy chain that ruled the childhoods of many of today's parents is shuttering nearly 200 stores this month. While bankruptcy is the official reason, it isn't the only or perhaps even the biggest reason why Geoffrey the Giraffe is being sent to the big zoo in the sky: Debt. Competition from online retailers like Amazon, as well as cheaper big-box stores like Wal-Mart and Target. Yes, bad customer service, too. All of these are the most commonly cited reasons...

    DES MOINES, Iowa, March 20, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Sixty-eight faith leaders who say they are Christian signed a letter of protest against a proposed Iowa law that would protect preborn children from abortion once their heartbeat is detectable. "As faith leaders, we want to use our collective voices to stand with Iowa women in support of their constitutional right ... to an abortion," the letter to the editor of the Des Moines Register begins. Speaking against the Iowa Heartbeat Bill, the faith leaders write supportively of a pregnant mother's "private medical decisions,” referring to her choosing abortion. “Most Iowans, people...
  • Ed Rendell Calls Late-Term Abortion Supporter Conor Lamb “Pro-life”

    This could be the biggest lie of the election season . . . On CNN this morning, former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell called Conor Lamb “pro-life.” The truth is that Lamb, the Dem candidate in today’s special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district, has said he would have voted against a ban on abortions after 20 weeks, the point at which the unborn can feel pain. That makes Lamb radically pro-abortion, Ed. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • I would’ve aborted a fetus with Down syndome. Women need that right.

    There is a new push in antiabortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women from terminating their pregnancies after the fetus has been determined to have Down syndrome. These laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable — and wrong. This is a difficult subject to discuss because there are so many parents who have — and cherish — a child with Down syndrome. Many people with Down syndrome live happy and fulfilled lives. The new Gerber baby with Down syndrome is awfully cute. I have had two children; I was old enough, when I became pregnant, that it made sense to...

    February 26, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Hillary Rodham Clinton criticized President Donald Trump’s State Department on Twitter last week for a recent move to trim abortion language in its annual global human rights report. “Women’s rights are human rights,” Clinton tweeted. “That was a radical idea back in 1995. It shouldn’t still be two decades later.” Clinton was sharing a Politico report on a State Department order to cut back portions in a forthcoming annual report on global human rights.

    The New York Times columnist David Brooks writes in a “memo” to Democratic Party leaders that their support for abortion on demand up until birth is hurting their party. Pointing out the failure of the Senate to muster 60 votes to protect unborn babies from abortion past the fifth month of pregnancy, Brooks notes, “I kept wondering: How much is our position on late-term abortions hurting us?” Taking his readers back through time before Roe v. Wade, when the Supreme Court created a right to abortion – though, as Alan Dershowitz has noted, none ever existed in the Constitution –...

    Emma Akpan is a faith leader at her North Carolina African Methodist Episcopal Church. She also volunteers for Planned Parenthood. Akpan wrote a column for Bustle this week trying to justify her abortion advocacy with her Christian faith by claiming that she wants to end violence against women. Akpan described herself a minister at her church. “I am a clinic greeter because of my faith, which teaches me how important it is to provide care for my community,” the Raleigh, North Carolina, woman wrote. “For me, that means ensuring that women have safe access to their health care facilities.” Akpan,...

    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 Obamacare’s 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. Northam’s position on abortion is extreme and out of touch with most voters, according to the National Right to Life...

    DURHAM, North Carolina, November 3, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A Catholic nurse is suing Duke University Hospital, claiming that the university discriminated against her religious and pro-life beliefs by requiring her to assist in abortions. Sara T. Pedro was told during her employee orientation that Duke University Hospital provides no exceptions to employees in its Emergency Department who don’t want to participate in abortions. The lawsuit, filed by The Thomas More Law Center on Pedro's behalf, says that Duke’s Emergency Department performs “a large number of abortions.” The lawsuit claims that Pedro faced retaliation and discrimination after she made a written...

    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...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s Senate campaign announcement ad is being blocked by Twitter over a statement the abortion rights opponent makes about the sale of fetal tissue for medical research. Blackburn in the ad boasts that she “stopped the sale of baby body parts.” Twitter found that statement to be inflammatory and “likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.”
