    Barbara Pierce Bush, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, will be the keynote speaker at Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas' annual Fort Worth luncheon. Barbara Pierce Bush, the daughter of former President George W.

Bush's public appearance before the group is striking, given that her father, President George W. Bush, was...

    Pro-life obstetricians understand that a pregnant woman isn't the only patient, and now medical ability allows them to act on what science has already confirmed with earlier treatments for unborn and premature babies. A study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine on February 16, 2017, from Duke Health of more than 4,000 babies born between 22 and 24 weeks shows more of those infants are surviving and with fewer neurological difficulties. Dr. Donna Harrison, executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, says while that should be celebrated, it also should cause one to pause...

    We’re nearing the end of the day, and as promised earlier, I did want to talk about the interview the New York Times Magazine conducted with itinerant abortionist, Willie Parker. As you need to know about the magazine’s motivation is in the headline: “Willie J. Parker Changed His Mind About Abortion.” Of course, it goes without saying (since Ana Marie Cox is writing for the New York Times Magazine), Parker’s “conversion” is from “someone who, for religious reasons, didn’t want to provide abortion” to becoming a practicing abortionist who flies into a location and takes the lives of up to...

    LIFE NEWS ^ | Feb. 23, 2017 | Micaiah Bilger
    Sometimes even the fact checkers need fact checked. The pro-abortion bias of the popular fact checking website Snopes came through recently when it claimed pro-lifers are wrong to say Planned Parenthood lied about providing prenatal care. Snopes rated the claim “mostly false,” arguing that Planned Parenthood never said it provides prenatal care at all its centers. It also claims Planned Parenthood leaders did not emphasize prenatal care as a primary service, and pro-lifers took their comments out of context. The fact check is based on a new Live Action investigation showing employees at the Planned Parenthood abortion business denying women...

    NBC DFW ^ | 2/21 | Paul J. Weber
    A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Texas can't cut off Medicaid dollars to Planned Parenthood over secretly recorded videos taken by anti-abortion activists in 2015 that launched Republican efforts across the U.S. to defund the nation's largest abortion provider. An injunction issued by U.S. District Sam Sparks of Austin comes after he delayed making decision in January and essentially bought Planned Parenthood an extra month in the state's Medicaid program. Texas is now at least the sixth state where federal courts have kept Planned Parenthood eligible for Medicaid reimbursements for non-abortion services, although a bigger question remains over whether President...

    Norma McCorvey, who passed away Saturday, didn’t go see attorney Sarah Weddington out of any desire to legalize abortion. She literally went to see her because she was hungry. They met together in a pizza parlor. Norma didn’t even know the meaning of the word “abortion.” She never got the help she was seeking for her third pregnancy, and ended up making an adoption plan for the baby girl who was born. She never appeared in court, and she found out about the outcome of Roe vs. Wade like everyone else did — in the morning paper. Having been exploited...

    According to government statistics, an increasing number of women from the millennial generation are opting out when it comes to having babies. Instead, it appears they’re finding an alternative more to their liking. Why the trend for young couples becoming “child-free”? And what have they found to fill the void? There’s an important distinction to be made between a “childless” couple that has no control whether or not they hear the pitter patter of little feet in their home, versus others who refer to themselves “child-free.” The latter is an intentional lifestyle choice not to have children. There is a...

Born with only 2 percent of his brain to a family in Cumbria, England, Noah had no hope — at least according to the doctors.In utero, Noah had developed a rare complication of spina bifida where his skull filled with fluid, crushing his brain down into a “thin sliver of tissue,” according to the UK’s Mirror. His parents — Shelly and Rob — were advised to abort him on five occasions. They refused. After Noah’s birth, an open wound...

    People around the world would be shocked if they could hear Madonna’s secret confession at the January 21 women’s protest march in Washington D.C. Hidden in her profanity-laced attack on President Donald Trump and his supporters was the iconic entertainer’s admission from her heart of hearts—her “super mind”—that she understands that all life is sacred and that a woman’s right to choose an abortion is really a right to murder. Put simply, the super mind is a deeper intelligence than our conscious mind. It perceives reality in far more detail than the conscious mind and is an expert at observing...

    PARIS, France, February 17, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — The French National Assembly has adopted legislation to make what it calls “spreading misleading information” about abortion punishable with up to a two-year prison sentence and a fine. The law specifically targets “electronic” and “online” means of spreading information with the intention of dissuading women from ending their pregnancy, but its wording is not restrictive. By and large, any person or group aiming to call public attention to the dangers and risks of abortion will be potentially at risk of prosecution. Thursday’s vote was the final stage of a lawmaking process that saw...

The 229-188 vote effectively repeals an Obama administration rule from December. “As a registered nurse, I know that vulnerable women seeking true comprehensive care deserve better than abortion-centric facilities like Planned Parenthood,” Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), who introduced the resolution, stated before its Feb. 16 passage. The Department of Health and Human Services issued a rule in...

"We are outside the high schools to present all the evidence. We want students to have the full facts about what abortion does so they can make an informers choice," said Seth Drayer, who is the Director of Training for Created Equal.

    A proposal which would force women to get permission from their sexual partner to allow them to have an abortion has passed the first hurdle in Oklahoma. The bill would mean women needed written consent from a man for a doctor to carry out a termination. The bill's author, state legislator Justin Humphrey, who has described pregnant women as "hosts", said it would give the father a "say-so". Critics say it degrades women. The fact Oklahoma lawmakers decided to move the measure toward a full vote by the legislature comes at a time the anti-abortion movement is growing bolder under...

    McCRACKEN Co, Ky - The teens who left their baby in this dumpster will serve one-year supervised probation. A judge sentenced 16-year-old Casside Cherry and 18-year-old Trevon Elmore on Thursday. The teens went to trial as adults, because they faced an attempted murder charge. The jury dropped that charge and found them guilty of only class d felonies, so the judge sentenced them as juveniles. That means he couldn't give them more than 90 days in jail. They already served that amount of time. Both sides debated over this for most of Thursday's hearing. Prosecutor Carrie Ovey-Wiggins pushed for 90...

    February 9, 2017 (TheBridgehead) -- Due to relentless influences from Hollywood and progressive activists, many people now believe that Christians are hateful people. Specifically, Christians are hateful because Christianity forbids a broad range of sexual behaviors, and secular progressives have decided that this makes Christians “homophobic.” This term can be applied willy-nilly and irrespective of whether or not Christians do, in fact, fear or hate gay people. If Christians cannot agree that the definition of marriage can be arbitrarily changed after thousands of years, for example, this is indicative that Christians are desperately in need of the one quality progressives...

    A bill introduced at the state capitol would require the father of a fetus to sign off on an abortion. House Bill 1441, authored by Republican Rep. Justin Humphrey, would force women seeking abortions to identify the father to the doctor. If the person identified disputes he is the father, the person may ask for a paternity test, according to the bill. The legislation grants exceptions for rape, incest or when the mother's life is in danger. Exceptions are also made if the father of the fetus is deceased, provided the woman signs a notarized affidavit attesting to the fact....

Remember.”

    In Tuesday night's episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the Fox News host sparred with U.S. Democratic representative Eric Swalwell of California over Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. "I just want to know if you agree with this or not — and I'm quoting him directly," Carlson began, reading aloud words written by the 10th Circuit judge in his book The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia. "'Human beings are intrinsically valuable and the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong.'" Turning to Swalwell, Carlson asked, "Do you believe that?" Agreeing that human beings have intrinsic value, Swalwell...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business was quick to announce its opposition to President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Trump nominated the federal appeals Court Judge yesterday with strong support from pro-life organizations that point to his track record as supporting religious freedom for pro-life organizations refusing to be forced to pay for abortions. They also noted his opposition to assisted suicide and his support for a state fighting to defund Planned Parenthood abortion business. Now the nation’s largest abortion corporation is launching a massive campaign to stop Gorsuch’s nomination. The pro-abortion group says he should not be confirmed...

    Teen Vogue is doing its best to push its pro-abortion agenda on young, impressionable minds. This week, the magazine ran a column by the Rev. Broderick L. Greer, an Episcopal priest who advocates for abortion. Greer argued that Christians should support women in their decisions to have abortion, rather than judge them. “And that is where the Church can find its point of entry: in offering people making these decisions every measure of mercy they need to live wise and whole lives,” Greer wrote. “It is the act of looking people in the eye and saying, ‘I trust you. I...

    Tuesday on the View, host Whoopi Goldberg led a segment based off of the ridiculous question, "Is America becoming like the Taliban?" Whoopi referenced Monday’s show, where co-host Jedediah Bila talked about terrorists hating American values like freedom and democracy. Tuesday, Whoopi wondered if it was actually America who hated freedom and was trading it in for "Taliban values" with Trump in the White House. WHOOPI: We keep hearing about terrorists hating about American values. We had this conversation yesterday. Let me ask you now, we have had a leader who's repeatedly demeaned women, wants to defund organizations that benefit...

    Pro-abortion House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi threw a fit yesterday over President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Pelosi claims the appeals court judge is “hostile to women” because he opposes abortion on demand. Here’s what Pelosi had to say: House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi torched President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, as “a very hostile appointment” and someone who is “well outside the mainstream of American legal thought” in a televised town hall on Tuesday. During the live event on CNN, Pelosi painted Gorsuch as a judge who is “hostile to women’s reproductive...
  • NRA Applauds Neil Gorsuch's Nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court

    APPEARS IN News Tuesday, January 31, 2017 Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association (NRA) applauds the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the United States Supreme Court. “President Trump has made an outstanding choice in nominating Judge Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court. He has an impressive record that demonstrates his support for the Second Amendment,” said Chris W. Cox, Executive Director, NRA-ILA. “We urge the Senate to swiftly confirm Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, just as it did in confirming him to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit by...

    President Trump has announced that he has nominated 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court as the replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. “Judge Gorsuch has outstanding legal skills, a brilliant mind, tremendous discipline and has earned bipartisan support,” Trump stated in introducing his pick to the public Tuesday night. “Mr. President, I am honored and I am humbled. Thank you very much,” Gorsuch, an Episcopalian, said to applause in accepting the nomination. While it is not known where Gorsuch himself stands on abortion, he is the author of the book...
  • A pro-life look at Trump’s SCOTUS frontrunner, Neil Gorsuch

    ... First, SCOTUSblog’s profile on Gorsuch highlights cases in which his “opinions also reveal a measure of distrust towards unwritten constitutional provisions like the dormant commerce clause”—a useful clue: Gorsuch’s opinion shows respect for the doctrine’s “[d]etractors,” like Scalia, who “find dormant commerce doctrine absent from the Constitution’s text and incompatible with its structure.” Though Gorsuch’s personal constitution seems to require him to write clearly about the many unclear aspects of the doctrine, his opinion plainly takes some joy in the act of demonstrating that not only does the dormant commerce clause not apply — the doctrine also doesn’t make...

    Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor. Their names were synonymous with major Supreme Court battles to stop the Obama Administration from forcing them and others to pay for drugs that cause abortions. And when it came to their religious freedom to opt out of Obama’s abortion agenda, Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch agreed. In a significant ruling in a major landmark case, Gorsuch outlined a broad definition of religious freedom that could point to how he would rule in similar cases regarding abortion if confirmed by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ultimately sided with Hobby Lobby and...
