  • New poll shows most Americans would ban abortion after the first trimester

    People on both sides of the abortion debate had much to talk about when Republicans introduced a bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. NARAL lobbied hard against it, and though the bill easily passed the House before and is supported by a majority of Americans, Obama promised to veto it. The bill was tabled due to debate over the rape exception, which is unfortunate for apparently both pro-lifers and pro-abortion advocates alike. A new poll shows that a whopping 84% of Americans want to ban abortion after the first trimester, and that includes 7 out of...

    In the United States, one in four women are victims of domestic abuse, which is why some abortion advocates argue that women need “safe and legal abortion care.” In fact, they believe that abortion is a life-saving option because pregnancy can tether women to violent men. Tragically, a recent example of this argument appeared in the article, “I Gave Myself an Illegal Abortion after My Boyfriend Forced Me to Get Pregnant.” A woman named Kaity shared that she had an illegal abortion after her abusive boyfriend forced her to get pregnant. She writes, “Shane didn’t like to use condoms. He...

    The head of the Russian Orthodox Church has called upon MPs to begin a campaign against abortions, starting with canceling state sponsorship for the procedure and aiming at a total nationwide ban. “If we manage to cut the number of abortions by 50 percent we would have stable and powerful population growth,” Patriarch Kirill said, speaking before the Lower House on Thursday. This was the first ever speech of the head of the Russian Orthodox Church before the State Duma. “The argument that a ban would cause an increase in the number of underground abortions is pure nonsense.

They never judged anyone with a deformity,” Levatino said, standing a few feet from the white marble steps of the Supreme Court. Forgive the overstatement. Levatino’s life has undergone a 180-degree change. Levatino was an abortion doctor. Now he is a pro-life gynecologist. Levatino said he is at peace with the transformation. Standing on a...

    Even though pro-lifers were criticized for saying that "Obamacare" funds abortion, some liberals, including House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, are now complaining about Obamacare abortion funding that the U.S. House voted to remove Thursday. The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which passed 242-179, would require that insurance plans that receive government funding no longer cover elective abortions. In reaction, some liberals have argued that the bill would increase taxes on small business. "Republicans Include Tax Hike In Latest Abortion Bill," announced the headline of a Huffington Post article by Jennifer Bendery.

    President Obama hailed the 42nd anniversary of 1973’s Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion at any time for any reason throughout a woman’s pregnancy. “Since 1973 over 50 million unwanted births have been prevented,” Obama pointed out. “That’s 50 million mothers spared the toils and troubles of rearing children they did not want. That’s 50 million individuals spared the indignity of being an unwanted child.” The President also took this anniversary as an opportunity to call for “continued vigilance against those who would have us backtrack on this vital human right.” Two instances of “backtracking” as the President sees it are...

    The new Republican Congress is weak and has almost no unity. What their message or agenda is changes almost daily. You would think though that Republicans could be counted on to defend the rights of the unborn. You would even like to think that Republicans could successfully present a case against infanticide. Unfortunately, the Republicans can’t even get behind a bill that would ban infanticide. House Republicans proposed a bill that would ban the abortion of babies over 20 weeks. Such a ban is popular among the general public. They even allowed for an exception for rape and incest, which...

    Perhaps the most astounding aspect of the shoddy care of abortion clinics is the claim they all make to provide quality health care for women. A recent example of the hypocrisy in Illinois is not only disgusting, but also dangerous to the women it purports to serve. The study from Illinois Right to Life revealed: 63% of licensed Illinois women’s clinics have not received a health and sanitary inspection in between two and three-and-a-half-years. The failure of the Department of Public Health to conduct regular health and sanitary inspections leaves women open to the prospect of unsterile surgical tools, dirty...

    Forty-two years after the Supreme Court legalized abortion in its Roe v.

Madeleine Kunin told those attending the gathering, which was organized by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. In the nearby Statehouse cafeteria, tables were littered with fliers emphasizing the value of adoption and offering testimonials from women who regretted abortions.

But similar legislation is likely to advance in state capitols around the country this year. Abortion opponents like the Susan B.

    Babies after 20 weeks of gestation can feel pain. If allowed a couple more weeks to grow inside their mothers, they can survive outside the womb. Most Americans — especially most women — believe that government should protect these babies by banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. After 20 weeks, a baby is entering her 6th month of in-utero life. She is forming taste buds and can hear her mother’s voice. At 20 weeks, an unborn child is on the brink of viability: James Elgin Gill was born after 21 weeks and 5 days gestation. He’s now a healthy...

The legislation combines several policies that must be enacted every year in Congressional battles and puts them into law where they will not be in jeopardy of being overturned every time Congress changes hands from pro-life lawmakers to those who support abortions. The House voted 242-179 for the bill with 239 Republicans and three Democrats voting to ban taxpayer funding of...

    Yesterday, I visited my mom and we watched a popular talk show. In the middle of the show, a breaking news update flashed on the screen. Suddenly the show was interrupted. My mind began to race. Did something happen to our President? Was there another terrorist attack? Did a school shooting occur? Soon my fears were erased. Patriots QB Tom Brady was in a press conference, denying claims he knew about deflated footballs in the AFC Championship Game. This was the breaking news that interrupted a scheduled program. I’ll admit I’m not a football fan. I also barely watch TV....

    I was leaving the One Voice worship service at the Renaissance Hotel in D.C. Wednesday night, on my way to meet fellow pro-lifers at the Dubliner Pub (dichotomous activities, I know, at least for a Protestant :), when Casey Mattox of Alliance Defending Freedom stopped me in the hall. “They’re pulling the 20-week ban,” said Casey, “and substituting ‘No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion‘.” Casey started walking again, on a mission to tell others, but I remained frozen, with my mouth hanging open, watching Casey until he disappeared around a corner. (Correction: Casey has told me he was actually on a...

    Today, the radical communist pro-choice on abortion group, Stop Patriarchy, uploaded a video showing them chanting after their arrest at the March for Life. You can read about how these loud feminist abortion pushers blocked the pro-life March for Life in D.C. yesterday- here. So, very proud of themselves, they actually video taped a chant inside the “paddy wagon” after their arrest. Like- who does that? And..who took the video? A tweet posted by the group reads, “RT! View from inside the paddy wagon…”Every generation, has an obligation, to WOMEN’S LIBERATION!” #Roe42 #DC” The group wasted little time attempting to...

    New Mexico’s three Roman Catholic bishops hope Republican control in the state House of Representatives will help them achieve a ban on late-term abortions that Albuquerque voters rejected in a 2013 city election. Allen Sánchez, executive director of the New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops, said the new Republican majority in the House provides the first “window of opportunity” in years to end late-term abortions in the state. “For years (Republicans) have made the claim that if they could take the House, they could get pro-life legislation on the governor’s desk,” Sánchez said. “We see pro-lifers, both Republicans and Democrats,...

    The St. Mary and St. Joseph Family Memorial Foundation has purchased the Twin Spires in Downtown St. Joseph with plans to create a national pro-life shrine. When it opens this spring, the church will become the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the first national pro-life shrine in the country. It will serve as a location for prayer to end abortion, and for atonement for the babies and the conversion of their parents, the nonprofit said. “It was kind of miraculous. We were going to build a shrine,” said Richard Mahoney, president of the foundation. “I got a call from a...

  • ‘Pain-capable’ SC abortion ban gains early ground

    S.C. lawmakers gave an early push to a bill Thursday that would ban abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy – an effort the General Assembly came close to passing last year. A five-member state House panel unanimously OK’d the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.” That act would ban abortion at 20 weeks – based on pro-lifers’ claims, disputed by some in the medical community, that a fetus can feel pain at that point. If the House Judiciary Committee also approves, the bill will go to the House floor for a vote. A similar bill passed the House 81-22 last...

    The “Director of Civil and Human Rights” for the United Methodist Church, Bill Mefford, posted a picture to Twitter yesterday mocking the pro-life marchers. Mefford, who works for the church’s lobby arm, the General Board of Church and Society, ridiculed the marchers by posting a picture of himself standing before them with a sign saying “I march for sandwiches.” TWEET ON LINK Here’s a thought. A great proportion of the pro-life marchers are young people. They are volunteers, unpaid and untrained. Mefford, on the other hand, is a grown man, one whose actual job is to represent Christians in the...

    A while ago, I read a blog post over at First Things that was a blast from my past. The author, a Lutheran pastor, recently left the ELCA to become a member of the newly-formed North American Lutheran Church (NALC). He said, “My real disaffection with the ELCA didn’t start with sex. It began in earnest over the ELCA abortion statement and the subsequent decision by the national council to treat elective abortion for pastors and dependents as a reimbursable medical expense under the church health plan.” It was this exact issue that was my first step on the path...
