    The Local (Italy) ^ | 20 November 2017 | The Local (Italy)
    An Italian priest has sparked outrage after apparently comparing lawmakers who have campaigned for abortion access in Italy to one of the country's most notorious mafia killers. Bologna priest Don Francesco Piero was quoted by local paper Il Resto del Carlino as posting on his Facebook page: "Who has more innocent deaths on their conscience, Totň Riina or Emma Bonino?", referring to a mafia 'boss of bosses' who died last week and Bonino, a prominent campaigner for abortion rights. He went on to say that "morally, there's no difference" between the two. Riina, a mafia killer nicknamed 'The Beast' in...

    """Democrats Dump $250K a Day into Partial Birth Abortion Candidate Doug Jones Campaign to Beat Roy Moore""" Democrats are pumping $250,000 a day into the pockets of Doug Jones, the liberal candidate running against Roy Moore in Alabama. Doug Jones supports partial birth abortion up to the day a baby is delivered. Democrats and DC Republicans hope Judge Roy Moore will lose after a string of unproven sexual allegations this past week.

    Militant snowflakes at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia did their part to combat what they called “violence” by shredding other people’s signs at a free speech event: The signs contained messages such as, “Abortion is murder #DefundPlannedParenthood,” “There are only two genders,” and “The gender wage gap, Harry Potter, Both Fantasy.” Javid Ona, president of the College Libertarians at KSU, told Campus Reform that the signs were posted by individuals as part of a free speech event and did not necessarily represent the views of all the groups involved, noting that there were “groups from across the political spectrum.”...

    Professor Travis Reider of Johns Hopkins University boosted population control as a solution for climate change in a Wednesday op-ed for NBCNews.com. Reider, an assistant director at the school's Berman Institute of Bioethics, hyped that "having a child is a major contributor to climate change," and asserted that "the logical takeaway here is that everyone on Earth ought to consider having fewer children." He later outlined that "having a child imposes high [carbon] emissions on the world, while the parents get the benefit. So like with any high-cost luxury, we should limit our indulgence." Reider's item on the Big Three...

    FULL TITLE: Pastor Who Wouldn’t Say If Abortion is a Sin and Then Backtracked: “I Was Trying to Point People to Jesus” Mega-church Pastor Carl Lentz defended his controversial comments about abortion again this week, saying he made the conscious decision to focus on Jesus rather than sin during his appearance on “The View.” In a new interview with Relevant Magazine, the lead pastor of Hillsong Church in New York City explained why he said what he did about abortion on “The View.” Lentz said he prepared in advance, knowing that the talk show is fast-paced and unfriendly to pro-lifers....

    WASHINGTON – National Right to Life today endorsed pro-life Judge Roy Moore (R) in the Alabama special election to serve out the term of Jeff Sessions, who vacated the post in February to become U.S. Attorney General. Moore defeated Sen. Luther Strange, who was appointed to temporarily fill the vacancy, in a special primary earlier this year. Moore faces pro-abortion Democrat Doug Jones in the December 12 general election. “Judge Roy Moore’s position on life reflects the true values of Alabama’s voters,” said Karen Cross, National Right to Life political director. “There is a stark contrast between Judge Moore, who...

    There have been a lot of stories over the past few years about doctors and nurses treating veterans terribly at Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals around the nation. Tragically, this sort of horrible behavior isn’t just limited to VA clinics. There are several instances where veterans were treated horribly at other institutions. A veteran at the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation nursing home died in 2014. What makes this case truly sick is that the veteran was calling for help, and was ignored, WXIA reported this week. When a nurse did finally enter the room and found the patient, James...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., November 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) -- It’s been a year since the “Election of the Century,” and political pundits everywhere are assessing President Donald Trump’s performance thus far. Pro-lifers are evaluating Trump, too.  Their verdict so far?  He perhaps overreached in his campaign promises (what politician hasn’t?), but “The Donald” is the most pro-life, pro-marriage, and pro-family president in the history of the republic. “President Trump has been the most pro-life president in modern history,” Concerned Women for America’s Penny Nance flatly told Breitbart News. Even “Never Trumpers,” like Susan B. Anthony List’s Marjorie Dannenfelser, have come around...

    A Queens College pro-life student group ended its legal beef with the school on Wednesday. Queens College Students For Life complained that the school denied its efforts to become a registered student organization in November 2016. A lawsuit filed in Brooklyn federal court, alleged the school was teaching a bad lesson that free speech wasn't for everyone. Queens College said it approved the group in January. The case was settled on Wednesday, court papers show. Lawyers for the students say the deal will impact how student groups become approved. Caleb Dalton, a lawyer for the students, credited Queens College “for...

    A father of an 11-year-old girl in West Virginia who was arrested and ultimately indicted after arranging for an abortion following a case of pregnancy following incest will avoid prison. West Virginia State Police say they consented to the abortion and the abortion clinic in question didn’t report the abortion to authorities. Michael and Amanda Adkins were arrested on charges of child neglect causing the risk of injury. While some licensed medical professionals were involved in getting information to authorities, WSAZ-TV indicates the abortion clinic in Charleston that did an abortion did not report the clear case of statutory rape....

    A group of 16 Senate Democrats, led by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), wrote a letter Friday to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) acting secretary Eric Hargan, rebuking the Office of Refugee Resettlement’s (ORR) current practice of denying illegal unaccompanied minors in their care access to abortion, in light of the recent case before the D.C. Appeals Court. The ACLU and abortion advocacy groups seized on the case of 17-year-old Jane Doe last month to argue that illegal immigrants have a "constitutional right" to abortion access. Officials with the Department of Health and Human Services declined to facilitate...

    WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to decide whether a California law requiring private facilities that counsel pregnant women against abortion to post signs telling clients how to get state-funded abortions and contraceptives violates free speech rights. The justices will hear an appeal brought by Christian-based non-profit facilities sometimes called “crisis pregnancy centers” of a lower court ruling that upheld the Democratic-backed 2015 California law. The challengers argue that the law, by forcing them to post the information, violates the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment guarantee of free speech. The California challengers included the National Institute of Family...

    A Christian couple in the Canadian province of Alberta have been told by local Catholic Social Services and the provincial government that they are unfit to adopt children because they accept Biblical teaching regarding the immorality of homosexual acts, according to their attorneys at the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms. The married couple, whose initials are given as “C.D. and N.D,” have filed a civil suit against the province alleging religious discrimination, and calling the decision to reject their candidacy for adoption “unreasonable and void by virtue of arbitrariness, bias, bad faith, as well as breaches of procedural fairness and...

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Om Narayanan.  During a CNN health-care debate on September 25, 2017 Sen. Bill Cassidy stated, “You know, first, most Planned Parenthood settings are in urban areas, urban areas that have lots of OB/GYNs…Now, as it turns out, the folks who don’t have access to those cancer screenings live in rural areas. They live in areas where there are not enough physicians. So the idea is that we want someone to have to drive — a lower-income person drive — three hours to a Planned Parenthood facility there to get her screening, or would...

    Last week, I testified before the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, on HR 490, also known as the Heartbeat Bill. The bill, introduced by Iowa Republican congressman Steve King, prohibits abortion of an unborn child once the child’s heartbeat is detectable. I have been fighting for the last 30 years to protect the unborn, and I wholeheartedly gave my endorsement to this bill. In follow-up questioning, I responded to allegations, often made, that abortion essentially is a health and welfare program, categorizing it like major government spending programs that target the poor, such as Medicaid and...
