  • CBS Drama Shares Beautiful Pro-Life, Pro-Adoption Message

    Here at NewsBusters, we have a love/hate relationship with the CBS drama God Friended Me. It can be a faith-friendly show with positive messages, but, like all network television, it has also included a left-wing LGBT agenda. But this Sunday’s episode, “All Those Yesterdays,” proved again why God Friended Me has landed on our “nice” list in the past. When new character Joy (Jessica Lu) joined the “God account” team this season, we learned that she had placed a child in a closed adoption at age 16. The audience discovered a few weeks ago that Joy arrived in New York...
  • Will your tax dollars pay for abortion on Virginia campuses?

    National Right to Life ^ | October 21, 2019 | Olivia Gans Turner, President, Virginia Society for Human Life (VSHL)
    Only days ago, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom signed a new, first of its kind law that will require all tax-payer funded public universities to make chemical abortion available to students. That’s right, the Governor of California has decided it is reasonable to force the taxpayers of California to pay for campus abortions! According to a report from the California’s Department of Finance (which objected to the legislation), “the new policy would cost University of California–system schools somewhere between $4.6 million and $7.8 million to initiate, with additional ongoing costs of $2.2 million to $3.3 million beginning in 2023 to operate...

    Irish Times ^ | October 21, 2019 | Freya McClements, Gerry Moriarty
    An attempt to thwart the liberalisation of abortion law in Northern Ireland fell at the first hurdle on Monday when the Northern Assembly, sitting for the first time in more than a thousand days, was unable to complete the first item of business – the election of a speaker. The appointment of a new speaker required a cross-community vote but as Sinn Féin and the SDLP boycotted the vote this parliamentary obligation could not be met. The DUP had supported the attempt to have a motion passed that would mean that any changes to abortion legislation or same sex marriage...

    “Best cities” lists typically are made for people looking for vacation spots, places to settle down with a family, or a career that they love. But a disturbing new list from the National Institute for Reproductive Health highlights cities that make it easy to abort unborn babies. Fast Company reports the pro-abortion group ranked 50 U.S. cities based on 34 different indicators, including how much they promote abortion access. The “top” city for killing unborn babies is San Francisco, with New York City and Chicago close behind, according to the list. Boston, Los Angeles, Portland, Oregon, Seattle and Washington, D.C....
  • Colorado abortion rates keep declining. Free IUDs and easier access to the pill are the reason.

    Colorado Sun ^ | October 21, 2019 | Jennifer Brown
    Abortion rates have dropped again in Colorado, and heath authorites are crediting increased access to birth control statewide. Pharmacists have written thousands of prescriptions for the birth control pill since 2017, when Colorado became only the third state in the nation to allow women to get prescriptions for oral contraceptives at the pharmacy instead of only from a doctor. State and federal dollars are funding free and low-cost IUDs — intrauterine devices that prevent pregnancy for five years or more — for low-income women and teens who visit community health clinics across the state. Another contributing factor: the so-called morning-after...

    NY Times ^ | October 19, 2019 | Lyndsay Werking-Yip
    I am a baby killer. I stopped mid-step on my way into my office in Manhattan, and that thought scrolled through my brain yet again: “I am a baby killer.” It was an April day this year, nine weeks after I ended my child’s life. I decided to keep walking. That is a choice I have to make every day: Give up or keep moving. I have been choosing the latter, over and over again. I consider myself “pro-life.” But that phrase is heavy with multiple meanings. Like “pro-choice.” I identify with both of those terms. I am a walking...

    FULL TITLE: Healthy Twins Survive Chemical Abortion After Planned Parenthood Failed to Disclose Second Child In Utero Recently, a Tennessee woman gave birth to healthy twin babies who miraculously survived a chemical abortion attempt at a Knoxville, TN, Planned Parenthood. The incredible story of these miracle babies, as told by one pro-life physician, underscores just how sorely the abortion giant fails to meet the needs of women, both from a medical standpoint and a human one. Displaying obvious ineptitude from the start, the nation’s largest abortion business only informed the woman she was pregnant with twins after the chemical abortion...

    Liu’s* husband told her to have an abortion. The Chinese woman discovered she was pregnant while on a visa as a visiting professor at a California university. Her spouse, still in China, feared the baby would have a disability due to the medication he took while ill. “He told her to have an abortion before coming home,” said Kerry Jepson, executive director of Assure Pregnancy Clinic in Fontana, California. “She felt she had no choice.” The woman whose home where Liu stayed encouraged her to visit Assure. A volunteer advocate at the clinic had been a missionary to China several...

    The American Center for Law & Justice represents the Everett, Washington, chapter of The Church at Planned Parenthood. The Church at Planned Parenthood-Everett (“TCAPP”) is an organization that hosts a “gathering of Christians for the worship of God and the corporate prayer for repentance for this nation, repentance for the apathetic church and repentance of our blood guiltiness in this abortion holocaust.” In April 2019, TCAPP began holding monthly worship services in Everett, near the Planned Parenthood Everett Health Center. In June, TCAPP was approached by City of Everett law enforcement officers who stated that the City of Everett had...

    Planned Parenthood’s exit from the federal Title X family planning program has spurred an array of allies to sound alarms about “millions of women” losing access to cancer screenings and birth control.  The charge is baseless and absurd.Women will still have many providers and facilities from which to obtain health care and contraception if Planned Parenthood is no longer an option.  Federally qualified health clinics and other rural and community health centers outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics by as much as 20 to one and they offer many services that Planned Parenthood does not: mammograms, immunizations, and care for medical disorders...

    PHOENIX — A Phoenix doctor is accused of pointing a gun at a small group of protesters outside Acacia Women's Center on Thursday, October 10, according to Phoenix police. Doctor Ronald Yunis was arrested by Phoenix police on Friday, October 18, on charges of aggravated assault, according to the Phoenix Police Department. A YouTube video posted by Apologia Studios depicts a group of anti-abortion protesters outside the Acacia Women's Center on October 10. As Dr. Yunis pulls out of the women's center parking lot, he appears to brandish a weapon, briefly pointing it at the protesters. ABC15 reached out to...

    NEW YORK, October 18 (C-Fam) The pro-abortion UN Population Fund (UNFPA) does not want pro-life critics in attendance when the agency convenes a conference in Nairobi in mid-November. UNFPA and the government of Kenya are co-hosting the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25: Accelerating the Promise to mark the 25th anniversary of the original and very controversial Cairo Conference on Population and Development. UNFPA’s website claims the conference “will offer an inclusive platform, bringing together governments, civil society, private sector organizations, women’s’ groups and youth networks to discuss and agree on actions to accelerate implementation” of the Cairo Program of Action.

    In footage released Friday afternoon, it appears an abortion doctor pointed a firearm toward a pro-life demonstrator from inside his vehicle as he left a clinic in Phoenix earlier this month. Apologia Church, the group behind the pro-life demonstration at the Acacia Women’s Center on Thursday, Oct. 10, posted the video to YouTube, urging viewers to contact the Phoenix Police Department to demand action be taken against Dr. Ronald Yunis, the physician who allegedly pulled a gun on protester Elvis Kesto. The altercation took place around 11 a.m. as Kesto was packing up to leave the clinic. Yunis, who only...

    During moments of desperation, Arizonans routinely rely on a 211 crisis hotline for help. "Everyone knows about 211. I've referred other people to them. I’ve called them myself about shelter," said Enrique Troche, sitting on a street corner recently near the CASS homeless shelter in Phoenix. But the nonprofit that manages the hotline has signaled it is running out of financial support, and an effort to restore state funds to the hotline failed earlier this year. The bill was left to die at the committee-level after a socially conservative think tank raised alarm bells because three phone calls to the...

    DAVIS, Calif. (KTXL) -- Abortion pills will soon be available at all 34 public colleges across California for those who want them. “I think it’s a great idea,” University of California, Davis student Areeba Zaman told FOX40. Access to the pill is expected to start January 2023 at all University of California and California State University health centers. The centers will be required to provide access to the abortion medication for students who want it. “Being able to refer to your school as a resource for that sort of thing is very helpful,” student Andrea Garcia said. The new law,...

    A Pittsburgh ordinance drawing a 15-foot buffer zone around medical facilities where abortions are performed doesn’t violate the free speech rights of “sidewalk counselors,” the Third Circuit said. The ordinance by its terms doesn’t apply to anti-abortion protesters who engage in “peaceful, one-on-one” conversations with people entering the clinics, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit said Oct. 18. Thus, it’s valid as applied to those protesters, the court said. The ordinance prohibits four activities: congregating, patrolling, picketing, or demonstrating within 15 feet of a hospital or health-care facility entrance. The sidewalk counselors’ activities don’t meet the definition...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A new study from researchers at Texas A&M University finds Tennessee's abortion waiting period law has reduced the number of abortions by 6%. Passed in 2015 under then Governor Bill Haslam, the law sets a 48 hour waiting period before undergoing the procedure. The law has been challenged in federal court by abortion clinics which argue it provides no benefits and causes a burden to women. Focusing on the Tennessee law, the new study found while abortions overall decreased, the waiting period caused a 38% increase in the number of second-trimester abortions. The study also found the waiting period...

    ST. LOUIS – Missouri officials are asking St. Louis police to provide security for an upcoming hearing on the state’s effort to end the abortion license for a St. Louis clinic. Both sides of the abortion issue have held vigils and protests over the licensing of Missouri’s only abortion clinic, which continues to offer abortion services while the case is pending. The next hearing is Oct. 28 at a state office building in downtown St. Louis. Administrative Hearing Commission staff attorney Ranada Vinyard told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that officials have been in contact with police because of the high-profile...
