  • [In Africa] Pope Francis Condemns Abortion: “Resist Practices That Threaten the Innocent Unborn”

    Pope Francis encouraged Catholics in Africa to reject abortion and treat children as a blessing on Thursday in Kenya. "We are also called to resist practices which foster arrogance in men, hurt or demean women, and threaten the life of the innocent unborn," the pontiff said during a Mass at the University of Nairobi, Kenya, according to the BBC. He encouraged young people to stand up for the sanctity of every human life by shaping "a society which is ever more just, inclusive and respectful of human dignity." He added that they "should reject everything that leads to prejudice...

    In Tuesday's USA Today, Supreme Court correspondent Richard Wolf (not to be confused with the former MSNBC exec Richard Wolffe) reported another one of those sob-story pieces about how women seeking abortions will have to drive more than an hour to have their babies "terminated." The headline was "In Texas, Going the Distance for an Abortion." The star of the article was "Veronica" in San Antonio, but she "didn't want her last name used because of the personal nature of the procedure." Wolf began:

    Thanksgiving is an outward act of inner gratitude. This holiday is more than pumpkins, turkeys, and commercially hyped Black Fridays. Thanking God for our blessings, giving selflessly and generously, and loving one another is at the heart of this day, which should be a daily occurrence. Being thankful is not always a natural response. People rescued from brokenness tend to have a better perspective on gratitude. I'm daily reminded of being saved from abortion. I was conceived in rape, yet given the incredible opportunity, through adoption, to love and be loved. Today, as an adoptive father, I have the awesome...

    NEW YORK (AP) - U.S. abortions continue to fall, according to a new federal report released Wednesday. Federal statistics show abortions have been in a general decline for about 25 years. The number of reported abortions dropped 4 percent in 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. About 699,000 abortions were reported to the federal government that year. That's about 31,000 fewer than the year before. ... ...Declines were seen in states that have passed anti-abortion laws as well as in more liberal states.

    The annual national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is this weekend. What many Catholics do not realize is that at the very core of the CCHD is a philosophy of revolutionary leftist ideologies. Over the years, the CCHD has been rightly criticized for funding organizations that are themselves promoting contraception, homosexuality, abortion, prostitution, and socialism. But these issues are only symptoms of an overall thrust that is aimed directly at convincing Catholics to fund Marxist revolution in the United States. The intent of this article, while certainly not exhaustive, is to help Catholics understand how the...

    A recent story in the Washington Post left me agog! I mean really folks, how intentionally pointed and disjointed can a report that is really not a report be? Curious? The Post states that “nearly 2 percent of Texas women say they tried to induce abortion.” The headline is generated by a report entitled “Knowledge, Opinion and Experience Related to Abortion Self-Induction in Texas” prepared by the Texas Policy Evaluation Project. The report and the Post story concur that self-induced abortions in Texas have taken a dramatic turn since the abortion clinic regulation bill was passed and signed into law...

Yesterday morning, in a comment sent exclusively to LifeSiteNews, Dr. Carson said his remarks had been "taken out of context and misinterpreted."

    SWEDEN, November 16, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- A local Swedish court found last week that a midwife’s rights had been infringed upon after she was denied employment at three separate maternity centers because of her refusal to assist at abortions. Despite this, the court ultimately ruled against the midwife, stating that maternity centers have a “duty to ensure that women have effective access to abortion.” A U.S. legal defense organization which filed a friend-of-the-court brief on the midwife’s behalf has criticized the ruling as a violation of Swedish and international law. “We are disappointed the court did not affirm Swedish law...

How is the legalization and relentless promotion of “assisted suicide” not the “glorification of suicide”? I’m tired of all of transparently mindless babble about how “assisted suicide” is not a slippery slope. The phrase itself screams with denial: “Wanna kill yourself? Here, let us help you with that.” When helping people kill themselves is referred to as “end-of-life care” rather than “accomplice to murder,” who will be picking up the phone at the other end of the suicide prevention...

    The Supreme Court on Friday decided to hear its first major abortion controversy in nearly a decade, agreeing to determine how far states may go in regulating the procedure without violating a woman’s constitutional rights. It will be one of the court’s most consequential rulings on the morally and politically divisive subject, and it will land just months before Americans choose a new president. The divide over protecting the unborn and safeguarding the right of a woman to choose is among the starkest differences between the Republican and Democratic candidates. Numerous states have enacted restrictions that lawmakers say protect a...

    In 2011, the Texas state legislature cut Planned Parenthood out of one family-planning program and revamped the way another program hands out funds, placing private clinics like Planned Parenthood at the bottom of the list. Last month, Governor Greg Abbott said he would block the organization from participating in all Medicaid programs in the state. Legislators also imposed a welter of expensive new regulations on abortion clinics, forcing many of them to close.

Last month, House Republicans passed a bill to repeal several components of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through reconciliation, a budget process that avoids a Senate filibuster and requires a simple majority vote instead of the normal 60. That bill also included a measure to defund Planned Parenthood, which may need to be pulled if the Senate Parliamentarian rules it is not a budgetary measure.

But from 2002 to 2008 they barnstormed, fibbed, exaggerated, hyped, and caricatured to get government funding so that they could play God with human embryos. It was a brutal battle in which truth came second. "People need a fairy tale," said Ronald D.G.

    Recently the culture of death took the ambiguous term “natural death” and adapted it to fit into its roadmap to hell. For Catholics, the phrase “natural death” is best identified with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which teaches that “death is the end of earthly life,” not the death of the soul, and states, “In a sense bodily death is natural.” Catholic statements on the right to life usually include: “The Church affirms the right to life of all persons, from conception to natural death.” But as we have shown elsewhere, the word “conception” is erroneous in today’s topsy-turvy...

    “Not far from us, flames were leaping up from a ditch, gigantic flames. They were burning something. A lorry drew up at the pit and delivered its load–little children. Babies! Around us, everyone was weeping….. Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp …. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children, whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent sky.” –Elie Wiesel, Night October 29, 2015 (TheBridgehead) -- I’ve now gone through the second set of leaked Planned Parenthood videos, the three part series entitled “Fetal Disposition,” or in layman’s...

    Defund the WPA!Oh, wait, the Works Progress Administration, a Roosevelt New Deal federal agency providing Depression-era unemployed with jobs, was dissolved on June 30, 1943. By then the United States was deep in the Second World War, recruiting everyone possible for its military, and putting everybody else to work in war-related industries. The WPA quickly became the relic of another time.Now, there's another relic of a terribly misguided past that is still drinking from the government bucket.Not since Dr. Frankenstein's minions went scouring through cemeteries and morgues for body parts have we seen anything as sinister as Planned Parenthood's tissue...

    Abortion stops a beating heart, kills innocent babies that are defenseless and unable to defend themselves against the murderers, and abortion advances a culture of death I own a rubber model of a 12-week unborn baby that I keep on my desk. My four-year-old granddaughter, the first time she noticed the Precious Onein my office said, “Look Grandpa. A baby!” Even my pre-school aged granddaughter recognized the reality of God’s Creation. She did not see the model as being one of a “fetus,” or “a blob of tissue.” She recognized it as being a replica of a baby. The idea...

    YouTube: Fetal Disposition [2/3] SAN FRANCISCO, October 27, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - An undercover video of the National Abortion Federation caught the owner of a chain of abortion facilities saying that burning aborted babies' bodies for energy is "a great idea" and "a really good solution" for society.

During a Q-and-A session, a Canadian abortionist announced, "Just before I came I had to handle some media" requests dealing "with a big, sort of, explosion...

    HARTFORD, Connecticut, October 26, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Melanie and Floyd Foster's baby died, they say, because their doctor, OB/GYN Corinne de Cholnoky, ruptured the baby's membrane while trying to remove an IUD. As a direct result, they say, their premature baby was later born alive but died after two hours. Because the baby was only 22 weeks along, Dr. de Cholnoky says the baby was not viable and therefore not a person, and no wrongful death occurred. Because the baby was born alive, the Fosters – and the judge presiding over the case – say the baby was a person,...

    You wont believe what the number one killer of black Americans is. It isnt heart disease, it isnt cancer, it isnt homicide and it isnt motor vehicle accidents. In fact, the number one killer of black Americans is abortion. Despite a lack of reporting by California, New Hampshire and Maryland, a total of 730,322 abortions were reported to the CDC in 2011, the most recently published reporting year. 405,994 of these reported abortions included cross-classified race/ethnicity data for 2011, of which 146,856 were reported to be black American abortions, equaling about 36 percent of the total number of abortions with...

    Dr. Ben Carson says he would love to see Roe v. Wade overturned, making abortion illegal in nearly all cases. Im a reasonable person, and if people can come up with a reasonable explanation of why they would like to kill a baby, Ill listen, Carson said in an interview that aired on NBCs Meet the Press Sunday. Unreasonable explanations, according to the Republican presidential candidate, include unwanted pregnancies in cases of rape and incest. Rape and incest, I would not be in favor of killing a baby because the baby came about in that way, he said. The only...

    Washington D.C., Oct 23, 2015 / 04:12 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Amid continuing controversy over fetal tissue harvesting at abortion clinics, the U.S. House of Representatives voted Friday to defund Planned Parenthood and to reroute funding to community health centers. Women have the most to gain from congressional action to reroute these tax dollars to community and rural health centers, which provide comprehensive health care services to women, but do not abort the lives of unborn children and harvest their body parts, the pro-life political action committee the Susan B. Anthony List said Oct. 23. The bill also guts key parts...

    The website GotNews.com claims it has obtained and released "all" the remaining undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials shot by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), including videos that were blocked from being released to the public by a court order. Eleven previously unseen videos have been uploaded to YouTube. The website's founder, journalist Charles C. Johnson, said that an internet hacker named Andrew Weev Auernheimer obtained the footage and uploaded it to YouTube. "This material was turned over by Congressional whistleblowers not subject to the court order," Auernheimer said. The videos, which range in length from just over one...
