    Pro-abortion feminists in Argentina staged a violent, topless protest Sunday to demand taxpayer-funded abortions and cultural acceptance of prostitution. Crux reports protesters vandalized several buildings, including a Catholic cathedral in Argentina during the pro-abortion “Boob Protest.” Local news reports indicate the pro-abortion protesters threw rocks, a Molotov cocktail, bottles, tampons and feces, as well as balloons filled with paint. They also painted walls with messages such as “Death to the pope” and “Lesbianize yourself.” The South American country protects unborn babies’ right to life in most cases. However, abortion activists met with legislators in September to push a new bill...
  • English bishop: you cannot be Catholic and support abortion

    10/17/2017 3:54:02 PM PDT · by iowamark · 19 replies
    Bishop Michael Campbell said it was a 'foundational issue' for the faith and there is 'no getting around it.' Catholics cannot claim to be true to their faith if they do not support Church teaching on abortion, a bishop has said. Bishop Michael Campbell of Lancaster said abortion was a “foundational issue”, quoting Pope Francis who said: “We are called to defend and safeguard human life, especially in the mother’s womb, in infancy, old age and physical or mental disability.” “Sadly,” Bishop Campbell added, “The price of admission into mainstream British life has meant that we somehow keep the Catholic...

A small group protested on the steps of the Washington State Capitol in Olympia, wearing red robes and white hoods and claiming they are being oppressed because pro-life advocates are trying to keep unborn babies from being killed. According to Crosscut, similar protests were scheduled across the United States as part of a “50 Handmaids in 50 States” event. Abortion activists...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed legislation Sunday that could have forced churches, Christian schools and pro-life organizations to employ abortion supporters. California Assembly Bill 569 would have prohibited employers from requiring their employees to follow a moral code of conduct, such as no sex outside of marriage and no abortions. It also would have prohibited employers from disciplining or firing employees for actions that violate the mission or beliefs of the group. The bill did not provide any exceptions for employers, meaning pro-life organizations, churches, religious schools and faith-based groups could have been forced to keep on employees whose actions...

    Wherever you stand on the issue, it’s impossible to ignore the cultural shift in attitude towards euthanasia and assisted suicide. What was once considered murder under the law is now being accepted as medical ‘treatment’ in many countries. However, even the most ardent promoters of these laws are now saying the ‘genie is out of the bottle’ and are severely questioning where these laws have taken society. We’ve all heard the tragic and much publicized stories of people who died by an assisted death. Tragic indeed. However, this film will focus on stories seldom heard in mainstream media: testimonies from...
  • Trump administration: 'Life begins at conception'

    The Department of Health and Human Services has published a draft of a new strategic plan that states in its introduction that life begins at conception. The personhood of the unborn child is central to the abortion debate — as even the justice who wrote the landmark Roe v. Wade opinion has acknowledged — because, if established in law, it would nullify a “right” to abortion. The largely overlooked HHS strategic plan for 2018-22 states the agency “accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving and protecting Americans at every stage of life,...

    “In a world where everyone wears a mask, it’s a privilege to see a soul.” I stumbled across this quote weeks ago, and it both struck me at the time and has stuck with me about the incredible gifts that transparency and vulnerability are in our world today. They provide a window to the soul, a connection to people, that is often sorely missing in our technologically driven, fast-paced culture. Although I share my life story in the hopes to inspire others, to shape our culture in respecting and protecting life and healing from our various emotional and spiritual wounds,...

    For many Americans, the crucial moment of last year’s election came during the last debate in which Hillary Clinton clarified her support for radical abortion policies such as partial-birth abortion, while Donald Trump stood for protecting life. Now, almost a year later, voters can see the results of their investment in the president. The Trump administration has made great strides to protect the innocent through proposed conscience protections, support of the House of Representatives’ Pain-Capable bill, and a statement of support for the Down syndrome community. Last week, the Departments of Health and Human Services, Treasury and Labor announced two...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards: “Why Should Christians be Able to Impose Their Views on Women?” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards claimed Monday evening, at a conference in D.C., that progressives can’t “take back political power if we don’t also stand up every single day for reproductive healthcare including safe and legal abortion in America.” The conference was hosted by the State Innovation Exchange (SiX), an organization that “supports state legislators in advancing and defending progressive policies across the country.” The remark was likely prompted by some recent discussion within the Democratic party over whether abortion should be...

Rupa Huq, the MP for Ealing Central and Acton, told a fringe meeting at the Labour Party conference that pro-life protesters were “weaponising rosary beads” outside a clinic in her constituency. HuffPost UK quotes her as saying: “We have a Marie Stopes clinic in Ealing and for as long as I can remember, there has been a constant phoney vigil outside the clinic, with people stopping women going...

    Twitter has blocked Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn's (Tenn.) Senate campaign announcement ad, ruling that a pro-life statement was "inflammatory."At one point in the video, Blackburn, who announced last week that she is running for the Senate in Tennessee, heralded how she "stopped the sale of baby body parts," a reference to her investigation into Planned Parenthood's reported practice of "donating" body parts in return for monetary compensation.But a Twitter representative told the Blackburn campaign that Twitter blocked the ad from being promoted, calling it "an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction," the Associated Press reported Monday. Twitter said...

    While the national media narrative of abortion focuses on the women, babies, protestors, and the vast political tangential impacts of defunding Planned Parenthood, contraception mandates, and the Supreme Court, one group of individuals consistently is left completely out of the conversation: the abortion workers themselves.Sometimes abortionists will snatch the spotlight, often not in positive stories, like late-term abortionists Kermit Gosnell or LeRoy Carhart. But what about the unseen nurses, counselors, secretaries, managers, and janitors, all of whom make their living at abortion clinics around the nation? What of their stories?There are an estimated 3,200 abortion workers currently in this country....

    Tennessee Episcopal Priest Kira Schlesinger believes so strongly in legalized abortion that she wrote a book to reconcile her Christian beliefs with the killing of unborn babies. In her new book “Pro-Choice and Christian: Reconciling Faith, Politics, and Justice,” Schlesinger criticizes churches that “shame” and stigmatize women who abort their unborn babies. She said church congregations should have more open conversations about abortion, and support women who have them. “The shame and stigma surrounding abortion and unwanted pregnancies, particularly in religious circles, are a huge impediment to having honest and forthright discussions about something nearly a third of women have...

    The View’s Sunny Hostin is “pro-choice,” whether she admits it or not, according to her co-hosts. On Thursday, The View ladies slammed Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) after a report revealed that the politician, a member of the House Pro-Life Caucus, encouraged his mistress to have an abortion. Both Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg took the opportunity to insist that their co-host, Sunny Hostin, was pro-choice because, they said, she wouldn’t “vote to overturn Roe v. Wade” or tell someone else “you can’t” have an abortion. They wouldn’t take no for an answer, even when Hostin stressed she would likely advise...

    No, I did not make that quote up. It flowed from the lips of the Reverend Laura Young, explaining to thinkprogress.org why she and others from the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice are blessing Preterm, a local abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. And, no, I did not make up “blessing” either. Who is the Rev. Young? I did a quick check in the Columbus Dispatch. From one story I learned This year, Young, a United Methodist minister in the West Ohio Conference, was assigned by Bishop Gregory Palmer to serve as executive director of the Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive...

    Commentary: Welcome to the dysfunction of Illinois government Diana Sroka Rickert I walked into the Thompson Center on my first day, not knowing what to expect. In many ways, my new workplace was like any other large organization: big building, thousands of people and plenty of broken computers. Except this building is dilapidated, many of the employees are political hires and the computers will never be repaired, ever. And it’s all paid for by you, Illinois taxpayers. “Welcome to state government,” said a new colleague, as we boarded the elevator for the 16th floor. This summer I got to see...
