  • Ann Romney to 'The View': 'I'm Pro-Life'

    ABC OTUS NEWS via Yahoo ^ | 10/18/12 | Russell Goldman
    As the race tightens and focuses on women, new attention is being paid to Mitt Romney's evolved position on abortion, but the woman who knows him best - his wife Ann - emphatically stated her own stance on the topic today, saying: "I am pro-life." Ann Romney, an influential surrogate for her husband who often takes his place on daytime talk shows with large female audiences, typically avoids any comment about policy or her own politics. But today she told the hosts of "The View" that she, like her husband, is opposed to abortion. "The good news is I'm not...

    IF HIPPOCRATES, the "Father of Western Medicine" were alive today, would he favor Question 2, the Massachusetts ballot initiative to authorize doctor-prescribed suicide?Presumably not: The celebrated code of medical ethics that bears his name, which physicians for centuries took an oath to uphold, flatly forbids assisted suicide. "I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked," the Hippocratic Oath avows, "nor will I advise such a plan."Some things never change, and one of them is the beguiling idea that doctors should be able to help patients kill themselves when incurable disease makes their lives unbearable.

    If you were watching the 2nd Presidential debate last night, you probably remember President Obama’s claim that Planned Parenthood does mammograms. (Aww, bless his heart. Obama actually thinks that his buddies at the abortion-giant Planned Parenthood do mammograms.) Mr. President — I’d like to welcome you to the real world — where Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms. Just over a year ago, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards was caught in the middle of a massive lie, when she said on national television that Planned Parenthood does mammograms. Well — Live Action was watching (Or as Planned Parenthood says, Live...

    Exposing the ELCA ^ | 10/16/12 | Dan Skogen
    FACT! Through its health benefits plan, the ELCA will pay for any and all surgical abortion procedures through the first five months of the unborn child’s life, no questions asked. FACT! The ELCA's health benefits plan, which covers fifty thousand individuals, is self-funded. This means that instead of buying a policy created and financed by an insurance company, the ELCA has created its own policy and uses only its own financial resources to fund the plan. FACT! Self-funding gives the ELCA maximum freedom to design and administer its plan. The ELCA has used this freedom to create an extremely unrestricted...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Oct. 16, 2012 ( - The Bishop of Colorado Springs is making headlines after he insisted that Vice President Joe Biden, a pro-abortion Catholic, “should know” he shouldn’t receive Communion if a campaign stop brings him to his diocese. “He should know, and I would do everything I could do to make sure that he knows, he ought not to be receiving Communion,” Bishop Michael Sheridan told the Colorado Springs Gazette earlier this month. “It’s clear to me that the Code of Canon Law, Canon 915, says that a Catholic politician who publicly espouses positions that are contrary,...

    ObamaCare: The leaders of the vice president's church are calling him out for denying the Affordable Care Act's threat to religious liberty and the institutions that provide needed social services. As we noted in our post-debate analysis, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) were not amused with Joe Biden's other great debate lie — that ObamaCare doesn't threaten religious liberty or the ability of churches, particularly the Catholic Church, to put their faith in action. On Oct. 12, the USCCB denounced the VP's deceptive comments, noting that the so-called HHS exemption is a farce that unconstitutionally defines what a...

    Planned Parenthood is in the killing business. They perform approximately 324,000 abortions per year, using various methods on women at various stages of pregnancy. For example, during a first trimester abortion, they usually suction out the child, or pieces of the child, through a tube inserted into the uterus. But during a second-trimester abortion, where the child has become too large to be killed and then sucked through a tube, Planned Parenthood performs a cervical dilation that allows them to get sharp instruments into the intended safety of the womb and kill the child so that it can then be...

    The Education Minister of Ontario, Canada — a professing Catholic who sends her children to Catholic schools — declared October 10 that the province’s publicly funded Catholic schools may not teach students that abortion is wrong because such teaching amounts to “misogyny,” which is prohibited in schools under a controversial anti-bullying law. “Taking away a woman’s right to choose could arguably be considered one of the most misogynistic actions that one could take,” Laurel Broten said during a press conference. “Bill 13,” she asserted, “is about tackling misogyny.” Passed in June, Bill 13 requires schools to provide “a positive school...

A spokeswoman for the minority Parti Quebecois government of Premier Pauline Marois said the proposed legislation was part of the party’s election platform and was based on recommendations from the report of the province’s Special Commission on Dying with Dignity. While some media outlets reported that the commission recommended the legalization of assisted suicide in exceptional cases, Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition pointed...

    I know it sounds outrageous, but the arguments my liberal readers make for abortion have convinced me that they are trying to legalize rape. Aside from the obvious fact that rape is a moral issue (and one can’t legislate morality), pro-abortion reasoning provides 10 additional reasons for making rape legal. I have enumerated all of them below. I have even taken the time to expand on some of the more disturbing arguments: 1. It is uncertain where consent ends and force begins. Because that is largely a religious question that cannot be determined by science, it has no place in...

The UN Human Rights Council published its “technical guidance” to address maternal mortality and morbidity in July, to “assist policymakers in improving women’s health and rights.” The document starts from the abortion industry’s assertion that the best way to reduce maternal mortality is to introduce legalised abortion and reduce legal and other restrictions on abortion.

    On the one hand, I cannot vote to re-elect President Barack Obama, who more than any other president in our history continuously exceeds the constitutional limitations of the executive branch.

But I have other reasons for not possibly voting for him. One is that no previous president has been so radically pro-abortion as Obama, who, when he was in the Illinois Senate, voted...

The passage of time and progress of society have brought many blessings – civil, cultural, and technological. Society today is freer, fairer, safer, and more comfortable. Unfortunately many of the blessings of progress come at a cost. The same technologies that make life healthier and more comfortable can also present us with previously unimagined ethical dilemmas.

From New York Daily News, October 1, comes this article, the title and subtitle of which provides pretty much all the information you need to know: “Sunset Park clinic will no longer offer abortions, instead only outpatient surgical care: Protesters drove away doctors and patients, says clinic owner”: A Sunset Park abortion clinic has shut down after Catholic protesters drove away doctors and...

    NEW YORK, October 1, 2012 ( – At least one in five patients declared “brain dead” and approved as “organ donors” by one organ donation organisation, are in fact still alive and are being killed by the removal of vital organs, a lawsuit filed last week in Manhattan alleges. The suit outlines the ghoulish worst-case scenario, one that was widely dismissed as scaremongering in the early days of the development of organ transplant technology, but which is getting a second hearing amidst growing concerns that coercion and abuse are becoming increasingly common in the highly lucrative transplant business. Patrick McMahon,...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 1, 2012, ( – Over the weekend, 54 pro-life activists were arrested outside the White House. Their crime? Kneeling to pray. Bryan Kemper, the founder of Stand True Pro-life Outreach, told (LSN) that dozens of activists were breaking an ordinance that bans protesters from remaining stationary - allowing them to carry signs in front of the White House, but not to kneel in prayer - to draw attention to the Obama administration’s assault on religious liberty through the HHS mandate. The event’s organizer Rev. Pat Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, told LSN, “In...
  • Blacks are abandoning the Democratic Party

    For more than 50 years, the black community has been the wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party. That may be changing. In spite of the overwhelmingly liberal voting patterns of black voters, they are an essentially conservative community. Americans of African descent are more pro-life and pro-family than the average white voter and as conservative on social issues as any white evangelical. Democrats have managed to monopolize the black vote in spite of the vast chasm between the two on social issues. This philosophical difference has become more pronounced in the past 20 years, as liberals have embraced far-left...

    This past weekend, a pro-life protestor was booed – at a D.C. church – for attempting to ask Kathleen Sebelius a question regarding the HHS contraception mandate at a forum following the church service. From WorldNetDaily: Brandi Swindell [pictured right], National Director of Generation Life, a pro-life group dedicated to mobilizing activists, students, artists, musicians and young professionals to end abortion and spread the message of sexual integrity, told WND that she had a “divine appointment” in Washington today. “Three of us chose to attend church at St. John’s this morning,” Swindell said, “and at the last minute found out...

    LIBERTY, Mo. – Prosecutors are charging a Missouri woman with forging her father's signature on a document doctors relied on to take him off of life support. Legal experts say there's little precedent in the case, which essentially accuses her of "death by forgery." Retired accountant William Van Note and his companion were shot by a home intruder in October 2010. Sharon Dickson was killed and Van Note was critically wounded by a gunshot to the head. He died four days later, after 44-year-old Susan Elizabeth Van Note told doctors her father would prefer to die rather than be kept...

    Celebrate Life September-October 2012 Today’s ‘palliative care’ disrespects the natural lawBy Elizabeth D. Wickham, PhD The natural law tells us that, in the context of health care, 1) food and water are basic treatment and care, and should not be withdrawn lightly; 2) morphine must not be used aggressively to hasten death when a patient is not near the time of death; and 3) pain management must be properly titrated to avoid overdose. In the early 1980s, the “right-to-die” movement identified a serious roadblock to its agenda: Society still considered the provision of nutrition/hydration as “basic care.” Journalist Diana Lynne...
  • Your Church’s Involvement In The 2012 Election [Oct. 7 is Pulpit Freedom Sunday]

    Every year around this time, questions come up about churches being involved in political elections. Questions like, “Can my church talk about issues that are at stake in the election,” “can my church pass out voter guides,” or “what if a candidate wants to address my congregation?” Admittedly, it can be confusing for churches and pastors to know what is allowed during an election season. Much of this confusion stems from the vagueness of the tax code and the accompanying IRS regulations. To help, Alliance Defending Freedom has created many resources for you to utilize this election season. Guidelines for...

    On November 4 of this year, a new pro-life documentary – The Voice of John – will be released. Produced by River Song Productions, this film will discuss the reality of babies born alive after abortions as well as evidence of atrocities that occur with far too much regularity in the abortion industry. In The Voice of John, the humanity of the unborn will be made real in yet one more way for the world to see, as “one small voice will speak for millions.” “John” is not a make-believe person or a fantasy. He is a real baby, who...

    Over the years I’ve learned that you can see some really amazing stuff on the Today Show at 7:30 in the morning. A week or so back as I puffed away on the tread mill, I spotted actress and director Penny Marshall being interviewed by Matt Lauer about her new book, “My mother was nuts.” Most remember her best for co-starring in the television comedy “Laverne and Shirley” and as the director of films such as “Big” and “A League of Their Own.” Marshall is legendary for, shall we say, living the drug culture of the 1970s to the fullest,...
