    The defense attorney for abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell is upset the murder trial is taking so long. Today, he complained to reporters about it, attempting to make a witty comment about the time the jury is taking to reach a verdict. After Jack McMahon made a comment about the length of the jury deliberations and trial, a reporter shot back with an equally witty retort. McMahon has been in a particularly hot mood this week during the trial and started it off with a blowup over the Fox News special that aired Friday and Sunday nights exposing the gruesome abortions...

    A pro-life Catholic group will hold a memorial service tomorrow to give names to the babies killed via late-term abortions and infanticides at the Kermit Gosnell abortion clinic. Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, told LifeNews today about his plans. As he mentions, he has requested the actual bodies of the babies victimized in the abortion-infanticides at Gosnell and his staff’s hands. “As we await the verdict in the trial of Kermit Gosnell, Priests for Life, which has requested from the Medical Examiner the bodies of the babies retrieved from Gosnell’s clinic so that a funeral and...

    With a national controversy swirling surrounding abortion as the Kermit Gosnell murder trial unfolds, several Senate Republicans are seeking hearings on the abortion practitioner and abortion in general. Sen. Mike Lee, a Utah Republican, released a letter along with 10 of his GOP colleagues introducing a resolution calling for the Senate to hold hearings on abortion facility regulations. “Congress and States should gather information about and correct abusive, unsanitary, and illegal abortion practices and the interstate referral of women and girls to facilities engaged in dangerous or illegal second- and third-trimester procedures,” the resolution states. “The lack of oversight at...

    MEXICO CITY, May 6, 2013 (LifeSiteNews) – President Barack Obama told reporters at a Mexico City press conference Thursday that he is “very comfortable” with newer, more lax guidelines allowing the emergency contraceptive pill Plan B to be sold over-the-counter to girls as young as 15, and requiring it to be available on easy-to-access store shelves instead of behind the pharmacy counter. “The rule that’s been put forward by the FDA, [Department of Health and Human Services] Secretary Sebelius has reviewed,” Obama said. “She’s comfortable with it; I’m comfortable with it.” Plan B (Levonorgestrel) is a strong dose of hormones...

    In a huge victory for pro-life advocates taking on the controversial HHS mandate, the Obama administration is giving up its effort to force a Bible publisher to obey it. The mandate has generated massive opposition from pro-life groups because it forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties. The Obama administration opposed an order a judge gave temporarily stopping enforcement, arguing that Tyndale House Publishers isn’t religious enough for an exemption from the mandate, a component of ObamaCare that forces employers, regardless of their...

    Life News ^ | Steven Ertelt
    Abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell has drawn national attention for his gruesome method of killing babies in an abortion-infanticide procedure that involves “snipping” their necks with medical scissors. The idea of jabbing scissors into the back of necks of babies shortly after their forced induced birth sounds like something out of a creep science fiction film. The reality is, as one pro-life blogger has put together, the idea came from an Ohio abortion practitioner in a paper presented to the National Abortion Federation. In 1992, abortion practitioner Martin Haskell wrote a seminal paper presenting the new partial-birth abortion method, which has...

    Obama admin. surrenders in HHS mandate case against Bible publisher WASHINGTON, May 6, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - At the government’s own request, a federal appellate court Friday dismissed the Obama administration’s appeal of an order that stopped the president from enforcing the HHS birth control mandate against a Bible publisher. The administration’s retreat marks the first total appellate victory on a preliminary injunction in any abortion pill mandate case. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing Tyndale House Publishers say the administration is apparently nervous about trying to defend its position that a Bible publisher is not religious enough for a religious exemption...

This might shock anyone who doesn’t follow academia, but I wasn’t the least bit surprised. This is just the latest of seemingly endless efforts by colleges to accommodate the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) student community. “We hope that this represents a commitment to catch up to our peers in terms of offering transgender students an equitable student life and health care experience,” Gabriel Murchison, a member of Yale’s Resource Alliance for Gender Equity, told...

    In 1977, abortion was legal throughout the country during all nine months of pregnancy. When an obstetrician gynecologist told teenager “Mary W” that she was 28 weeks pregnant, he suggested that she give the baby up for adoption, as few doctors in the area were willing to perform abortions that late. But Mary was determined, and she managed to find an abortionist – Dr. William Baxter Waddill. On March 2, 1977, Mary arrived at Westminster Community Hospital for a saline abortion. Saline abortions are seldom performed today because of the danger to the mother and the possibility of live births,...

    President Barack Obama was proud to become the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood last Friday. But not proud enough to utter the word “abortion.” The right to abortion is the sneakiest, most shame-faced of all American rights. Its most devoted supporters don’t dare speak its name. They hide behind evasion and euphemism and cant. So Obama sang a hymn of praise to Planned Parenthood at the organization’s annual conference without mentioning what makes it so distinctive and controversial. He said it is a group women “count on for so many important services.” He said its core principle is...

    We are becoming a society in which “choice” and self-defined identities trump once-common values and traditional beliefs. But contrary to the rhetoric of its defenders, this shift is not a simple advance for freedom. The privileging of “choice” above all else in fact requires re-engineering the human person and society as a whole, and this will inevitably involve a great deal of coercion. This shift, if it didn’t begin with Roe v. Wade, could be said to have been dramatically accelerated by it. Despite continuing opposition by over 50 percent of the American people, abortion is now universally available, in...

    Pro-life activists protested outside the clinic of a Washington, D.C., abortionist who admitted during an undercover interview that he “would not help” any infant that survives an attempted abortion procedure. Melissa Ohden, a survivor of an attempted abortion, spoke at the May 1 protest, saying she was thankful that the doctors at the abortion facility where she was born “didn’t subscribe to Dr. (Cesare) Santangelo’s credo that children like me should be left to die.” “They didn’t see me as a liability, they didn’t hate me for surviving, they saw my humanity,” Ohden said. Lila Rose, president of the undercover...

    There aren’t a lot of slow news days in the world of abortion, but this week, thanks in no small part to Live Action’s newest investigative video, I don’t even know what to write about first. Let’s dive in, shall we? 1. One of the “doctors” caught on video admitting he would let babies die outside the womb is one Cesare F. Santangelo. He claims he has not viewed the undercover video, dismissing Live Action thusly: “I really consider them terrorists.” I find Santangelo’s worldview sort of fascinating. Here’s how things work for him: Wearing a hidden camera to record...

    Kermit Gosnell has been in jail since his January 2011 arrest after authorities raided his abortion clinic. The jury in the Gosnell murder trial is expected to deliver a verdict soon, and the abortion “doctor” is housed at the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility. He is currently in solitary confinement pending the verdict and his expected sentencing. That’s because, according to one local reporter in Philadelphia, fellow prisoners don’t take his crimes of killing babies in infanticides too kindly. Rapists, child abusers, gang snitchers and the like are normally viewed as the lowest “rank” of prisoner by fellow inmates. They are often...

    An ABC News article appeared recently on the Kermit Gosnell trial that included remarks from one pro-life spokeswoman (our own Ann Scheidler, Vice President of the Pro-Life Action League), as well as one “pro-choice” spokeswoman (National Abortion Federation President Vicki Saporta). Kermit Gosnell and Vicki Saporta In the article reporter Colleen Curry quotes or paraphrases Saporta in each of the last four paragraphs. Here are the first two: Vicki Saporta, president for the abortion rights group National Abortion Federation, said that Gosnell took advantage of the women who came to him in need of an abortion. She said his clinic...

    NBC News did break down and cover the story tonight. The pressure must have gotten to them. Glory to God! I wonder if anyone saw it covered on the other networks.

    Several staff members of Americans United for Life traveled to Philadelphia on April 28th to remember the tens of thousands of children who were butchered within the blood-red brick walls of the “Women’s Medical Society”, aka Kermit Gosnell’s infamous “House of Horrors”, and to attend the closing arguments of the trial of Dr. Gosnell the following day. We began by visiting the “House of Horrors” itself. What did we see? Collapsed ceiling tiles, trash, and moldy water are just a few of the remnants of the atrocities scattered throughout the waiting room. Even the dark green chairs lining the far...

    HOUSE OF HORRORS: 'Dr.' Gosnell and Obama's heart of stone Exclusive: Alan Keyes notes prez's 'obdurate insistence upon the death penalty for infants' “It will have blood, they say. Blood will have blood. Stones have been known to move, and trees to speak. Augurs and understood relations have by maggot pies and choughs and rooks brought forth the secret’st man of blood.” (Shakespeare’s “Macbeth,” Act 3, Scene 4) When he was a state senator in the Illinois Legislature, Barack Obama opposed a bill intended to assure that nascent children who managed to survive an abortionist’s effort to murder them would...
  • Emergency Contraception – Not the Best for Adolescents

    American College of Pediatricians [Medical Journal] ^ | May, 2013 | Primary author: Patricia Lee June, MD
    ABSTRACT: A policy of either pre-prescribing “emergency contraceptives” to adolescent patients, or making them available without prescription, carries significant medical risk and is counterproductive to the parent-adolescent and patient-physician relationships. The American College of Pediatricians recommends instead that health professionals encourage good adolescent-parental communication, and teach adolescent patients the benefits of delaying sexual activity until marriage and how to avoid early sexual debut.1. The practical effect of availability of EC without restrictions is harmful to adolescents. In England and Wales, rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among teens increased at a faster rate in those areas with free EC for...
