    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...
  • Obama Admin Gives Up Forcing Bible Publisher to Obey HHS Mandate

    Life News ^ | Steven Ertelt
    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...
  • Gosnell Got “Snipping” Idea From Partial-Birth Abortion Inventor

    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...

    The defense attorney for abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell is furious about the Fox News special that aired Friday and Sunday nights exposing the gruesome abortions and infanticides that took place at his abortion clinic. Jack McMahon claims the special was designed to sway members of the jury, even though jurors have been instructed to not watch or read any media coverage of Gosnell and the murder trial. As local Philadelphia reporter J.D. Mullane reported on Twitter this morning: and Following McMahon’s outburst, Judge Jefferey P. Minehart called the jury into the courtroom and instructed them to let him know if...

    Obama admin. surrenders in HHS mandate case against Bible publisher WASHINGTON, May 6, 2013 ( - 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...

    A recent post on HuffPo has gone viral, being reposted mostly by people who can’t believe what they just read. A man, if you can call him that, writing under the pen name Albert Garland wants you to know: “My Wife Is Expecting Twins and I Am Not Happy About It.” This article is an excellent example of what we mean when we say “first world problems.” Even as it starts, I know I am about to read something steeped in a viewpoint warped and twisted by selfishness. It begins thusly: I’ve been doing some spying lately, casually asking friends...

    Last week, Yale announced that its student health plan will cover sex-reassignment surgery for students, deeming it an important part of “equal-access” health care. 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,...

    The passerby tried to justify Dr. Gosnell’s brutal abortions. “It’s not murder.” Refering to pregnant mothers, she said: “There’s nothing there until there’s love.” TFP volunteer: “If it’s not murder, then what is it?” Pro-abortion woman: “It’s like you’re weeding your garden.” TFP: “Really? Do you kill the weeds?” “You have to love. There’s not life until there’s love.” On Monday, April 28, 2013, six TFP Student Action members traveled to downtown Philadelphia to campaign against abortion. The atmosphere was highly charged as the young men formed outside the Center for Criminal Justice, where final arguments in the murder trial...

    I looked in the paper and saw a doctor’s office in need of a bilingual receptionist, someone who could schedule appointments for patients – it was perfect for me. I didn’t realize it was an abortion clinic. I was a Christian but abortion was not at the top of my list of concerns. I thought it was not a great option but really depended upon the woman’s situation. In my desperation, I put my beliefs aside, only worrying about putting food on the table for my three children and one on the way. As happens with a lot of abortion...

    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...

    Planned Parenthood is much in the news lately. And they can’t be happy about it. The trial of House of Horrors abortionist Kermit Gosnell is putting killing babies in a bad light. And then Lila Rose and Live Action released a number of videos showing there’s no real difference between Planned Parenthood and Gosnell. So I’ve put together a list of people I believe Planned Parenthood hates the most. Here they are: Lila Rose – You can’t overestimate the intensity of hatred that Planned Parenthood feels for Lila Rose. You see, representatives of Planned Parenthood never talk about abortion or...

    … And that’s not the worst of it. I didn’t have room in my title for the hymn abortionist Timothy Liveright sang to one patient during her abortion, “Jesus, Ohhhhh Jesus, take the sinners down the river, Ohhhh Jesus.” Seems to me that was meant as some sort of double entendre for the abortion he was committing. Gross on so many levels. I spoke yesterday with RN Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, pictured above right, who worked at Planned Parenthood Delaware’s Dover and Wilmington clinics for 3-1/2 months in 2012. During that brief time Jayne saw a lot. And what she saw left...

    The Common Pleas Court jury of seven women and five men have finished their deliberations for the week in the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. They will return on Monday, but not before having apparently moved on from considering charges against Gosnell’s co-defendant (according to multiple news sources including the Philadelphia Inquirer and CNN) and on to the 72-year-old abortionist charged with five counts of murder. Eileen O’Neill, 56, is charged with six counts of theft by deception (she is accused of posing as a licensed doctor) that form the basis of racketeering and conspiracy counts for her alleged...
