    It seems like only yesterday, not for a good reason, but because the horror of the case made the memories so vivid.A year ago last June we reported on the arraignment of the mother and sisters of Robert Gensiak. The women were charged in the starvation death of the 32-year-old Taylor, Pennsylvania, man.Mr. Gensiak, who had Down syndrome, weighed 69 pounds at his death, ”his shrieking flesh raked by scabies and lice,” wrote Chris Kelly for the Scranton Times Tribune.I just learned today that earlier this month all three were sentenced by Lackawanna County Judge Margaret Bisignani Moyle.

    Earlier this month, The Huffington Post published an excerpt of Katha Pollitt’s new book, “Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights.” The excerpt is titled “The Abortion Conversation We Need to Have” and starts with Pollitt”s statement that abortion “is a common, even normal, event in the reproductive lives of women.”Theresa Bonopartis, the director of a post-abortion healing program, gives a good rebuttal to this statement, “It [abortion] is not “normal,” regardless of its frequency, and no amount of writing or talking will ever make it so. That is why abortion continues to be such a controversial issue. She tries to justify her...

The Girls creator's naked selfie followed a series of pictures posted by some of Hollywood's biggest leading ladies, who all proudly wore a shirt advertising the dual campaign with...

Lynn Zent, who is now a dedicated sidewalk counselor, tells the following story: “I just wanted to make it all go away, and the only way to do that was to just do it. Originally it was a wanted baby, but the counselor said ‘why don’t you come back in a few weeks and we will talk?’ When I went back she proceeded to fill my head with things such as ‘You are so young’, ‘You have your whole life ahead...

    This week on the popular Dr. Phil Show, a mother named Annette Corriveau was featured. She’s special because she wants the right to be able to kill her children. That’s right. She is the mother of two severely disabled adult children, and she feels that the moral thing to do would be to kill them by lethal injection, to end their “suffering.” Her children were diagnosed with Sanfilippo syndrome, causing them to lose motor function and be institutionalized. They cannot speak, and they have to be fed through feeding tubes. Any more information on their condition wasn’t made clear –...

If she called on Tuesday, we’d have her in no later than Friday. We wanted to avoid a long waiting period where she’d have time to think about it. The more time...

She says it “doesn’t seem like the right time now” to end her life.Although cancer patients and pro-life groups have tried to talk her out of the decision, it now appears Maynard may have either been used by assisted suicide advocates to promote their agenda or may have been a part of a plan working in concert with them to attempt to legalize assisted suicide in additional states.The 29-year-old terminally ill patient made nationally-discussed plans to take the lethal pill...

Well, it was for me, anyway. If you haven’t seen it, you really should. It’s a movie about a futuristic type of life where there is no emotion, no love, no hate, no war, and no death. Sure, people die. But they don’t call it death…they call it “going elsewhere.” It is a society where only the “best” people are kept. Those...

People with disabilities, people suffering from mental illness, people who were just lonely or old but otherwise healthy, even children — all can be euthanized in countries like Belgium and the Netherlands.

    So Planned Parenthood says that that only three percent of all Planned Parenthood health services are abortion services. Makes abortion seem pretty rare for Planned Parenthood doesn’t it?Here is Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report from 2012 to 2013. This pie chart represents every single service Planned Parenthood performed during that year, and this slice of the pie represents the number of abortion services they provided in comparison to all the procedures they performed.And this clearly shows that abortion services were only 3% of the total pie. Right?So then why are pro-life groups claiming that this 3% number is misleading? What’s their...

Ted Cruz and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. The National Journal is right.

It is close to midnight in America, and we simply do not have time to think about waiting until 2020. there may be little left of our country to save...

I was completely pro-choice and didn’t find the idea of abortion to be troubling, but I knew that...

    A new book – a gospel of responsibility-free sex – defines abortion as “right,” “good” and “moral.” It’s what’s “best for kids” and it’s all about a woman’s “unalienable right” to pursue happiness.  When Katha Pollitt, an outspoken feminist and columnist for The Nation, published “Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights” on Oct. 14, the journalists used it as a launching pad for their latest abortion obsession: no-fault abortion. Pollitt’s book “reframes abortion” as “a moral right with positive social implications.” And since nobody ever went broke telling the self-obsessed what they want to hear, the book has received rapturous praise from the feminist left. Here, as given to us by Pollitt’s media...

In fact, when Louisiana passed the bill to protect unborn babies capable of feeling pain from abortion – the 20-week abortion ban – the bill passed unanimously in both houses. Against that backdrop, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) is trying to retain her seat for a 4th term. To win in pro-life Louisiana, Landrieu and her handlers have fashioned an image of her as some kind of “moderate” on abortion.

    The University of California (UC) system is one of the most reputed institutions of higher learning here in the United States. Boasting 10 campuses stretching from Davis in Northern California to San Diego in Southern California, the UC system is historically regarded for molding future leaders and pioneers. Unfortunately, intellectual diversity and tolerance of differing opinions are concepts largely absent in the UC system today.UC-San Francisco (UCSF)—UC’s medical school—is one of the first universities offering a free online course on abortion. The free six-week course is titled “Abortion: Quality Care and Public Health Implications.” It is taught by Dr. Jody...

    A Wisconsin pro-life group is doubling down on its criticism of a false ad that erroneously attacks a pro-life law Governor Scott Walker signed. Leading pro-abortion groups are attacking pro-life Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is facing a tough re-election battle in this purple state. The out-of-state and extreme pro-abortion group Emily’s List is making false claims about Sonya’s Law, the pro-life bill Walker signed that allows women a chance to see their unborn baby in an ultrasound while considering an abortion. The pro-abortion groups claim Walker is violating women’s privacy by forcing them to have a transvaginal utlrasound —...

    Democrat Ann Kuster has been representing New Hampshire's 2nd congressional district since 2013. As our own Matt Vespa has extensively covered, New Hampshire State Republican Marilinda Garcia is challenging Kuster for her seat. At this point, the race is a toss up with less than two weeks to go until Election Day. Yesterday Kuster's campaign held a pro-abortion, pro-choice event in an effort to rally liberal voters and forgot to take down the Halloween decorations portraying death in the background.

    The dangerous abortion pill RU 486 has killed dozens of women and injured thousands of women in the United States. Responding to that, the Oklahoma state legislature put limits on the drug and, after a legal battle, a court says it can take effect. The law required doctors who prescribe the abortion drug RU-486 to abide by FDA requirements that the agency provides for use of the drug. The Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down the law last year as an “undue burden” on those seeking abortions, but the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to review the case and has asked the...

    He knew the way even in the dark. Murder suspect Jacob Ferrero was riding with Columbus police homicide detectives about 2 Wednesday morning. He directed them east across Franklin County, away from the Far West Side apartment that he shared with Samantha Greenlee, a 22-year-old woman who had told her family she was 3 months pregnant with Ferrero’s child. Just east of Madison Christian Church at 3565 Bixby Rd. in Groveport, Ferrero directed detectives to stop and pull into a gravel drive. It was the church’s rustic outdoor chapel, just a few wooden benches and an altar clustered among a...

    A Bro-choicer calling himself “Bacon” on the Return of Kings Blog has come up with a “plan” for convincing a girl to have an abortion to avoid child support. The male abortion advocate writes, “Let’s face it: sexually active people have accidents. Shit happens, that’s life. But we know that men have no reproductive rights in opting out of a being a parent. With only two birth control options available to men (a condom and a vasectomy) the words you use to get your girl off the fence about having an abortion must be well thought out. If you are...

    To the dismay of California’s people of faith, the California Department of Managed Health Care has 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. Operation Rescue opposes this policy that forces men and women who deeply oppose abortion on religious grounds to fund surgical abortion in violation of their faith, and encourages others to oppose it as well. “Since Obamacare was first introduced, we warned that the day could come when Christians would be...

    Today, it is illegal to perform experiments on living aborted babies in the US. The issue of fetal experimentation has faded into the background. But it wasn’t always that way. There was a time, shortly after Roe V Wade, when babies who survived abortion not only were allowed to die, they were sometimes experimented on until they died. And experimentation on living aborted babies is legal in some countries. Dr. Jerald Gaull, then chief of pediatric research at New York State Institute for Basic Research in Mental Retardation on Staten Island, was quoted defending this practice: “Rather than it being...

    What’s a pro-abortion activist to do when her husband’s grandparents are “very Catholic” and pro-life? That’s the question one woman asked when she wrote to The Jewish Daily Forward's Seesaw advice column seeking guidance on how to convince her husband's grandparents to support abortion-on-demand. “I am Jewish and a longtime pro-choice activist who is married to a half-Jewish, half-Catholic man,” wrote the anonymous activist. “He was raised more Jewish than Catholic, because his Catholic dad wasn’t really into the faith. His grandparents, on the other hand, are still very Catholic and therefore very anti-abortion. I have long desired to have...

    It's not every day that Planned Parenthood and Oregon Right to Life agree on anything, but both groups have come out against a new ballot measure that would limit the number of choices Oregon voters have in a general election – a measure backed by out-of-state billionaires and corporate interests.. If passed, Oregon Measure 90 would place all candidates for office – of any party – on one primary ballot, and only the top two vote-getters would face each other in the general election. This could result in two members of the same party facing one another. “Measure 90 will...
