    After meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican, Alfie Evans’ father says the Vatican hospital is “ready to take Alfie immediately” and provide the care and treatment Alder Hey Children’s Hospital refuses to provide. Tom Evans, 21, and Kate James, 20, have fought an extended legal battle with the children’s hospital to get it to allow them permission to take Alfie to the Bambino Gesú hospital in Rome. But Alder Hey hospital says it’s in Alfie’s best interests to pull his life support, potentially killing him. Last night Tom Evans posted on the Alfie Army Facebook page to describe his time...

    Some of the most powerful testimonies in the pro-life movement come from former abortionists. These are doctors who have committed abortions, sometimes thousands of them. They know more about abortion than anyone else. Like former abortion workers, they were insiders in the abortion industry and have seen everything that goes on in abortion facilities. One former abortionist, Kathi A. Aultman, has dedicates her life to protecting the preborn. She has testified in support of pro-life legislation before Congress. Most recently, Aultman testified in favor of the Heartbeat Protection Act. Introduced on January 12, 2017, the bill would ban abortions after...

    The parents of terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans have lost their latest legal battle. Tom Evans and Kate James asked Court of Appeal judges to rule that the 23-month-old should be allowed to receive treatment in Italy. Earlier Alder Hey Children's Hospital urged protesters supporting the parents to show respect. Police are investigating "acts of intimidation" among hospital protesters. Ch Insp Chris Gibson said officers recognised the sensitivities involved: "Whilst many people have gathered to protest in a peaceful way, Merseyside Police is now investigating a small number of reports, some of which originate from social media, as well as...

    PORTLAND, ORE. A federal judge has dismissed a tax evasion charge against a man who describes himself as a Christian who refuses to give money to the government to support abortion. The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Thursday the judge ruled that the government failed to provide evidence that Michael Bowman tried to conceal or mislead government officials. Prosecutors accused Bowman of not filing an accurate tax return since at least 1997. Bowman said he's been up front with the Internal Revenue Service, refusing to file a return or pay taxes since 1999 without some accommodation afforded to him for religious beliefs. The...

The idea was inspired by California student Brandon Gillespie, who wanted to highlight whether schools would practice a double standard on student protests. “Along with being a...

    The battle over the life of Alfie Evans has taken a turn for the worst in the UK. Yesterday, Alfie’s parents relied on a letter from a pro-life attorney saying they have the legal right to withdraw Alfie from the hospital. However police blocked them from getting Alfie and leaving. Today Alfie’s parents, via their media coordinator, indicated that courts have seized custody of Alfie and made him a ward of the state. “We are outraged that in further legally indefensible steps during the night, the hospital obtained a faxed order making Alfie a ward of the court, removing parental...

The Indiana General Assembly just passed Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) 340 that allows for the expansion of baby box installation at fire departments, including volunteer fire departments, that are staffed by an emergency...

    Abortion activists with Planned Parenthood complained that two new laws signed by Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam this week will “hurt women of color.” Implying a possible racist motivation, the abortion chain’s Tennessee branch slammed the governor Wednesday because he signed two laws to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups of state taxpayer dollars. “This hurts patients. It prevents them from seeing a healthcare provider they choose. Specifically, in our area, reproductive healthcare is difficult to access for some people,” said Sarah Wallet, the medical director for Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis. “There’s a lot of stigma surrounding reproductive healthcare....

    Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed two new laws this week to ensure that no state tax dollars go to Planned Parenthood and other groups that do abortions. One of the new laws (HB 2251) directs the state to request a federal government waiver to completely defund abortion facilities from the taxpayer-funded TennCare, the state Medicaid program. The legislature passed the bill in March. The second law (SB 2494 / HB 2262) codifies existing policy established in 2011 by the Haslam administration, which prioritizes health departments to receive Title X family planning funds rather than Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in the...

    As Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before Congress about the company’s failure to protect user’s personal data, the social media monopoly is facing more charges of censoring conservative voices. Aric Nesbitt, a former member of the Michigan House of Representatives and state lottery commissioner, wanted to amplify his announcement for State Senate on Facebook, so he submitted it the way any candidate or company would. But the ad was quickly rejected “because it doesn’t follow our Advertising Policies. We don’t allow ads that contain shocking, disrespectful or sensational content, including ads that depict violence or threats of violence,”...

    Can a federal judge with rock-ribbed pro-life views set aside her personal tenets and uphold the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing abortion? If she failed to tell Congress during her confirmation process about some of her pro-life statements, including promoting the dubious hypothesis that abortions cause breast cancer, should she even be a federal judge? Those were among the sharp questions that Wendy Vitter faced Wednesday (April 11) during testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Republican President Donald Trump has picked Vitter, general counsel to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans and wife of former Sen. David...

    Trump judicial nominee Wendy Vitter’s personal pro-life views were under intense scrutiny from several Democratic senators at her confirmation hearing Wednesday. Vitter was repeatedly asked about her pro-life beliefs and whether they would interfere with her role as a judge. She was also grilled about statements made in past, pro-life speaking engagements. The main questions from Democratic senators centered around two appearances she made, that were recently cited by the abortion giant Planned Parenthood in an op-ed targeting Vitter prior to the hearing. One appearance was as the moderator of a 2013 Louisiana Right to Life panel where views...
