    Perry, who has called for a second special session of the state legislature to pass the measure, told those gathered that it was lawmakers’ duty to prevent abortions, regardless of the conditions into which a child may be born. “Even the woman who filibustered in the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances," Perry said. "It's just unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters."

    A hearing was held on Tuesday, June 18 in the case of People of the State of Illinois v. Women’s Aid Clinic of Lincolnwood in Cook County Court in downtown Chicago, and Women’s Aid Clinic owner Larisa Rozansky is continuing her stall tactics: As has happened in four of the past five hearings in the case, Rozansky didn’t bother to show up in Judge Alexander White’s courtroom. The state Attorney General’s office filed suit [PDF] against Women’s Aid in August 2012 after the notorious abortion facility refused to pay the $36,000 fine assessed against it by the Illinois Department of...

    Governor Rick Perry gave a rousing speech to the National Right to Life convention today and urged pro-life activists to continue pressing members of the Texas legislature to ban abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy. Perry responded to the mob that shouted down members of the state Senate, who came a few minutes short of passing a bill that would ban late-term abortions and hold abortion clinics accountable for violating the health and safety of women. “Even if they lose at the ballot box and come up short with stalling tactics, they will resort to mob tactics to force their...

    Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s dismissive response to a letter from a leading pro-life Catholic priest is making waves nationwide. LifeNews reported on Father Frank Pavone’s letter to House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Pavone made an appearance on Fox News last weekend to underscore his point. Pelosi laughed off the letter from the top pro-life priest who is asking her to revise her pro-abortion position to make it conform to the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church or to leave the Church. She called Pavone arrogant, medieval, hysterical, and disconnected from the Catholic Church. Now that Pelosi has responded to...

    Rather than answer the simple question as to what is the moral difference between killing a baby outside the womb or inside the womb, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has criticized me and Priests for Life, of which I am the national director, for raising the issue in an open letter, calling us arrogant, medieval, hysterical, and disconnected from the Church. I would like to know if Mrs. Pelosi, in her charges that we are arrogant, medieval, and hysterical, intends to include the more than 14,000 people (and counting) who signed onto my open letter to her in just the...

    A bill that opponents claimed would virtually ban abortion in Texas failed to pass late Tuesday after lawmakers missed a deadline by just minutes. There were chaotic scenes after a filibuster attempt fell just short and protesters cheered, clapped and shouted for the final 15 minutes as lawmakers tried to hold the vote before the session ended at midnight. The filibuster by Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, lasted more than 10 hours but ended after three challenges to her speech were upheld. Spectators in the Texas Senate chamber protest a halt to Sen. Wendy Davis' filibuster against an anti-abortion bill....

    I recently interviewed a 26-year-old Swedish student about her views on life. I asked her if she believed in G-d or in any religion. "No, that's silly," she replied. "Then how do you know what is right and wrong?" I asked. "My heart tells me," she responded. In a nutshell, that's the major reason for the great divide within America and between America and much of Europe. The majority of people use their heart — stirred by their eyes — to determine what is right and wrong. A minority uses their mind and/or the Bible to make that determination. Pick...

    After the Texas House of Representatives passed the omnibus pro-life bill yesterday to ban abortions after 20-weeks of pregnancy, Democrats in the state Senate are planning to filibuster the measure today. The House approved the bill early Monday morning after 8 hours of debate by a vote of 97-33 with 5 Democrats voting in favor of the bill and one Republican voting against. According to Texas Right to Life, Senate Bill 5 would affirm the state’s interest in protecting the lives of preborn children who feel pain by banning abortion at 20 weeks post-fertilization. Senate Bill 5 also requires all...

    In 2011, Frances Kissling, the founding President of the National Abortion Federation, penned a Washington Post editorial supporting the very abortion regulations that many pro-life groups are celebrating today. Kissling defended such regulations saying: If the choice movement does not change, control of policy on abortion will remain in the hands of those who want it criminalized. If we don’t suggest sensible balanced legislation and regulation of abortion, we will be left with far more draconian policies – and, eventually, no choices at all. Did you hear that? Unless abortion-advocates advocate for “common-sense” regulations of their murderous industry, abortion will...

    The new president of Komen for the Cure is refusing to detail her position on abortion. That will likely only add to the furor the breast cancer charity has caused within the pro-life community — where its initial decision to de-fund Planned Parenthood and its backtracking days later cost it dearly with pro-life Americans. As LifeNews reported, Komen has a new president and CEO. The breast cancer charity named Judith Salerno to replace founder Nancy Brinker, whose promise to her dying sister begat a fundraising powerhouse has faced significant controversy. Brinker announced last summer she would step down following an...

    The House passed a historic piece of legislation last week that prohibits late term abortion. The “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” -- introduced by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) along with 187 co-sponsors and passed in the House by a vote of 228 to 196 -- prohibits abortion after 20 weeks. As Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) noted in her remarks, science is clear that, at the end of the second trimester of pregnancy, the unborn child feels pain. This initiative was a response in the House to the outrage triggered by the Kermit Gosnell tragedy, with the Philadelphia abortion doctor recently...

    Well, it finally happened: rapper Kanye West and professional famehound Kim Kardashian had their baby, a girl, this weekend. Unfortunately for the “happy” couple, though, the birth was marred by an ill-timed leaking of a single off Kanye West’s newest album, Yeezus. (The title is a mix of Kanye’s nickname, Ye, and Jesus. Get it?) Just before Kim gave birth to his child, the song “Blood on the Leaves” hit the internet, and considering that this song is basically an ode to abortion, the leak was ill-timed indeed. In the song, West tells the tale of a married man who...

    Chicago, IL (LiveActionNews) — If you live in Chicago, or anywhere else with a news channel, it’s likely you’ve seen one of these ads depicting pregnant teenage boys. The Chicago Department of Health followed Milwaukee’s lead by plastering them on billboards and buses across the city in an attempt to lower their teen pregnancy rate, which is reportedly 1.5 times higher than the national average. Shocking? Yes. Will they grab the attention of hyperactive, immature teenagers? For a second. Are they likely to stop teens from engaging in risky behavior? I don’t think so. Especially since the website these ads...

    Mom, Dad, I’m pro-life. The day I “outed” myself to my ultra-liberal family, I was terrified. These are the people who basically tried to bully me into aborting my son (aka, their grandson) back in 2011. Lord knows I love them, but I was seriously considering taking this to the grave. You’ve got to understand that I’ve always been the person in my family to keep my opinions to myself. Thank goodness I didn’t do that when I found out I was pregnant at 17 years old. I can date back several family issues that came up where I would...

    KIRKLAND, Wash. — I BELIEVE that parenthood starts before conception, at the moment you decide you want a child, and are ready and able to create a safe and loving home for her or him. I support abortion rights, but I reject the false distinction between the terms “pro-choice” and “pro-life.” Here’s why. A lawyer by training, I was 38 when I completed a term on the Seattle City Council. Two years later, I married my husband, who is five years younger. We wanted children, and started trying right away, but had trouble conceiving. Using in vitro fertilization, we had...

    Planned Parenthood is diving into a new area of education, not without its own controversy: Obamacare. The group’s more than 750 health centers across the country will be promoting the health law and helping women find out about new coverage options for themselves and their families before — and after — enrollment begins Oct. 1. They’re creating everything from refrigerator magnets to online apps that help people enroll in a health plan. Some affiliates will be applying to become official government-funded “navigators” to give people more hands-on help through the signup process. Planned Parenthood says its health centers see nearly...
