  • 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 (LifeSiteNews.com) - 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,...

    PEMBROKE, Ontario, Oct. 16, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – After Ontario’s Education Minister shocked Catholics last week by declaring that under the law their schools should not be teaching that abortion is wrong, the Bishop of Pembroke insists that the Church has no intention of letting the government define the Catholic faith. The Church will “defend her legitimate autonomy from outside organizations which attempt to define the content of Roman Catholic teaching,” Bishop Michael Mulhall stated in a letter to parishes on Oct. 11th. “As a Bishop of the Catholic Church, this is a sacred obligation and a joyful mission which was...

    Paul Krugman assured us back in 2009 that, “In Britain, the government itself runs the hospitals and employs the doctors. We’ve all heard scare stories about how that works in practice; these stories are false.”If that’s the case, then the British press is filled with liars who deliberately make up horror stories about their nation’s healthcare system, as you can see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.We now have another nightmare to add to this list.

    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...

    Basic Rights: A court in Colorado has ruled that, contrary to DOJ arguments, Americans do not have to choose between giving up their faith or giving up their business. Freedom of religion also applies to the free marketplace. The Newland family of Colorado and the heating and air conditioning business they run are not quite as famous as CEO Dan Cathy and his Chick-fil-A restaurant chain — at least not yet.

    Outspoken and passionate in his faith, Maryland Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr. tells it like it is. Speaking to his congregation last Sunday in Baltimore, the outspoken man of faith declared his reasons for opposing the re-election of Barack Obama this November 6th. In fact, he offered four compelling reasons to make a stand against the first black president that may resonate strongly in the black Christian community. We have the video, and on Pulpit Freedom Sunday, Jackson took a strong political stand on the upcoming November elections. “The Bible says righteousness and justice,”he preached. “We've come to a point…...

    (ACN) The founder of Operation Rescue, Randall Terry, is back in the national spotlight and has found an ingenious and novel way to literally force television stations across the nation to run his hard-hitting and controversial pro-life commercials. His strategy? ... find a cadre of pro-life activists who are willing to run for Congress and "carpet-bomb" pro-life commercials, under the guise of campaign ads, across the nation. The rationale behind Terry's strategy is that television outlets are prohibited by federal law from refusing to run a campaign ad from a candidate for federal office or from asking the candidate to...

    Dozens of psychiatric and dementia patients had their lives ended under the Netherlands’ controversial euthanasia laws last year. According to Dutch media reports 13 psychiatric patients were euthanised last year, an increase of more than 500 per cent since 2010.

    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...

    A new SuperPac called Women Speak Out, affiliated with the Susan B. Anthony List (both organizations are deserving of support), released yesterday the single most powerful pro-life ad I've ever seen. Watch it here. The ad is slated to run in the Hampton Roads, VA area, to start with. In my humble opinion, it needs to run in selected places nationwide (and surely will do so if the funds are forthcoming).

    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...

Police had to bring in reinforcements to remove the protesters. “The church door was locked to keep the protesters out, but as one of the conference participant left the building during the morning session, the protesters took advantage of the open door and snuck in,” said Georges Buscemi, president of Quebec Life Coalition, to LifeSiteNews.com....

    QUEBEC, October 9, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Quebec’s newly elected government announced that it plans to table legislation legalizing euthanasia and assisted suicide as early as next spring, even though Canadian federal law prohibits the practice. 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...
