    FULL TITLE: Woman: “If there was a pro-life counselor outside of Planned Parenthood that day, I would not have had an abortion” Misti was raised a devout Christian. The daughter of a pastor and the granddaughter of missionaries, she grew up going to church. “In high school, I was really involved in church,” she said. “Right from there, I went to bible college in Canada for two years.” But after returning home from bible college, she realized that things weren’t the same. “I started feeling like a visitor in my own church,” Misti explained. She was working at Disneyland, and...

    Alliance Defending Freedom and six other pro-life organizations sent the Council of the District of Columbia a letter Thursday arguing that a proposed bill violates federal law by forcing the groups to provide elective abortion coverage through their insurance plans and employ those who live and act contrary to the organizations’ pro-life mission. The letter explains that the bill clearly violates federal law in light of the recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings in Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Burwell and Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores. pichealth50The Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act prohibits employers from “discriminating” against employees for any “reproductive health”...

    Every single day over 3,000 unborn children in the United States are brutally murdered by having their limbs literally torn and ripped apart.  This is the cold hard truth, and although every year there are hundreds of pro-life laws attempting to confront this dark reality legislatively, you will almost never hear a positive news story about pro-lifers. I believe that Heather and Brady's story needs to be heard and that the political media should be chastised for burying and distorting it. In the spring of 2013, I drafted and was one of the two proponents of the Colorado Brady...

    Though abortions are significantly down in the U.S. as a whole, business is booming at Planned Parenthood. Even while abortions have dropped to totals and rates not seen since the early days of Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood has been on building spree, putting up giant abortion mega-clinics all over the U.S. A new $9 million “health center” just announced by Planned Parenthood of New York City for Queens is just the latest. Annual abortions hit 1.6 million in the U.S. in 1990, but as of 2011 had dropped to 1.06 million a year. During that same time frame, however,...

The Daily Mail has an article by a deeply evil woman who bemoans the fact that she didn’t have that option: Questions I couldn’t answer raced through my mind: Had I caused his disability? How terrible would his life be? What impact would it have on his brother Andrew, then only two? How on earth would Roy and I cope? That was the day normal life ended for Roy, Andrew and me.

    A new book – a gospel of responsibility-free sex – defines abortion as “right,” “good” and “moral.” It’s what’s “best for kids” and it’s all about a woman’s “unalienable right” to pursue happiness.  When Katha Pollitt, an outspoken feminist and columnist for The Nation, published “Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights” on Oct. 14, the journalists used it as a launching pad for their latest abortion obsession: no-fault abortion. Pollitt’s book “reframes abortion” as “a moral right with positive social implications.” And since nobody ever went broke telling the self-obsessed what they want to hear, the book has received rapturous praise from the feminist left. Here, as given to us by Pollitt’s media...

    Louisiana is as deeply pro-life as any state in the nation. In fact, when Louisiana passed the bill to protect unborn babies capable of feeling pain from abortion – the 20-week abortion ban – the bill passed unanimously in both houses. Against that backdrop, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) is trying to retain her seat for a 4th term. To win in pro-life Louisiana, Landrieu and her handlers have fashioned an image of her as some kind of “moderate” on abortion. But since her last election in 2008, Landrieu has not cast a single pro-life vote – in that time, she...

    The dangerous abortion pill RU 486 has killed dozens of women and injured thousands of women in the United States. Responding to that, the Oklahoma state legislature put limits on the drug and, after a legal battle, a court says it can take effect. The law required doctors who prescribe the abortion drug RU-486 to abide by FDA requirements that the agency provides for use of the drug. The Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down the law last year as an “undue burden” on those seeking abortions, but the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to review the case and has asked the...

    Today, it is illegal to perform experiments on living aborted babies in the US. The issue of fetal experimentation has faded into the background. But it wasn’t always that way. There was a time, shortly after Roe V Wade, when babies who survived abortion not only were allowed to die, they were sometimes experimented on until they died. And experimentation on living aborted babies is legal in some countries. Dr. Jerald Gaull, then chief of pediatric research at New York State Institute for Basic Research in Mental Retardation on Staten Island, was quoted defending this practice: “Rather than it being...

Union made in the USA.” The baby sizes divided into 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months and 18-24 months. Other paraphernalia boasted messages...

She died at home in Oxford on 1 October after giving an extensive interview to the Sunday Times.Mrs Davies became involved in the right-to-die campaign as far back as the 1970s and was president of the World Federation of Right to Die Societies from 1990 to 1992 and was chair of the Voluntary Euthanasia Society UK (now...

    When abortion was made the law of the land, critics predicted that the number of “procedures” would multiply across America, that many would treat it as a form of birth control, and that millions of unborn babies would die. “Nonsense,” said abortion supporters. Abortion would be just for the “hard cases” so that a women would be safe from so-called “back-alley abortions.” Abortion supporters accused pro-lifers of using a “slippery slope” argument. Okay—40 years later which was right? Well, it’s pretty obvious: fifty-six million unborn children have been legally aborted since Roe v. Wade in 1973, precisely what pro-lifers predicted. Sometimes the...

    Walt Disney Studios has for nearly a century featured disabled characters in its animated cartoons, from a none-too-bright Dopey to Nemo and his damaged fin. Now a Bay Area couple has asked for one more from the media giant: a princess who has Down syndrome in common with their daughter. In the past two weeks, their Care2.com petition to persuade the Burbank studio has garnered more than 30,000 signatures from around the world. “We love Walt Disney,” said Keston Ott-Dahl, 48, of Antioch, whose 15-month-old Delaney Skye has high-functioning Down syndrome. “When I see her mesmerized by Disney princesses, it...

    When my daughter was born with Down syndrome 11 years ago, I was told by my doctor that she probably wouldn’t live until 3 years old. Beyond that, I was terrified that she would be ostracized or abused by society. Through parenting my brilliant daughter, my fear turned into amazement – amazement at all she could do. There are so many myths, misconceptions and outdated information out there, I wanted to write and let people know a few truths during this, National Down Syndrome Awareness Month. In fact, we, at the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, talk about the Two Syndromes,...

    Rep. Diane Black is one of the pro-life women members of Congress who is a consistent pro-life voter and outspoken on he issue of protecting unborn babies from abortion. In a new column at the Tennessean newspaper, Black explains why it’s important for pro-life voters to support Amendment 1. The Planned Parenthood abortion business is spending heavily to stop the Amendment, who would enable the Tennessee legislature to pass legislation that would protect women and save unborn children from abortions. Here’s what this pro-life Congresswoman has to say: tennessee3From my time in Congress to my years as a nurse in...

    I have three children. Each prayed for, desired, loved, cherished. For years, I have watched pro-abortion friends and family dote on them and shower them with love. They treat my children as precious and special, as valuable members of society—but only because I wanted them. Had I desired an abortion, these same people who rave about my son’s wit or marvel at my daughters’ smiles would have been the first to drop everything and drive me to the nearest Planned Parenthood to have them “taken care of.” My children’s worth, in the eyes of the pro-abortion community and of our...

    President Obama has been accused of trying to silence his critics. Apparently he’s silencing his supporters now, too. That was Gwyneth Paltrow’s experience, anyway. Obama was attending a Democratic fundraiser organized by the Hollywood star when he allegedly robbed Paltrow of her ability to communicate. After describing herself as one of the president’s “biggest fans,” Ms. Paltrow went on to declare, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.” As a heterosexual man, I’m probably not the most qualified person to evaluate President Obama’s physical attractiveness. What I can say is that no matter how handsome someone might be, there...

    Today, Pope Francis beatified Pope Paul VI, who served the Catholic Church as the bishop of Rome 1963-1978. (“Beatification” is one step below being canonized a saint.) Paul VI had a jam-packed papacy, including finishing the Second Vatican Council, traveling to all six inhabited continents (a first for popes), and historic ecumenical break-throughs. But today he’s probably most remembered for his 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae, which confirmed the Catholic Church’s long-standing teaching against contraception, abortion, and sterilization. Outside of the Catholic Church (and, unfortunately, by a large number of people within the Church as well), the teaching of Humanae Vitae...

    Carol Everett owned two abortion clinics and was the director of four. She eventually became pro-life and now speaks about her experiences. Like nearly all abortion clinics, Everett’s clinics had “recovery rooms” where women could stay after their abortions until the anesthesia wore off or they felt well enough to leave. Everett says there were two main reactions among women right after their abortions: …[T]here are two reactions in the recovery room. The first one is: I’ve killed my baby. And even then, it amazed me that that was the first time they called it a baby and the first...

    The Catholic Church has always condemned abortion as a grave evil. Christian writers from the first-century author of the Didache to Pope John Paul II in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae ("The Gospel of Life") have maintained that the Bible forbids abortion, just as it forbids murder. This tract will provide some examples of this consistent witness from the writings of the Fathers of the Church. As the early Christian writer Tertullian pointed out, the law of Moses ordered strict penalties for causing an abortion. We read, "If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely...

    Alaska draws hunters from around the world. In fact, Planned Parenthood is hunting there right now; their target is GOP senate candidate Dan Sullivan. Sullivan is trying to unseat the Democratic incumbent, Mark Begich, and that’s put him in Planned Parenthood’s crosshairs. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund has launched attack ads against Sullivan, including one that says, “Dan Sullivan would let the government control what you do with your body.” I can see why the folks at Planned Parenthood would run an ad about trying to control women. After all, they’ve been helping abusive men do that for years. Planned...

    Wisconsin has made huge strides in the protection of unborn babies and mothers in our state. In just 2013 alone, our new lifesaving laws gave mothers more information about their unborn children and helped save 465 babies, who now sleep peacefully in their beds. But we still have far more work to do. maryburkeThat’s why so many Wisconsinites are concerned by Mary Burke’s recent statement in a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel interview about her position on legislation that would protect unborn babies who are capable of feeling pain. When asked what she would do with legislation that would “ban abortions after...
