    John Barros has been ministering to women considering abortions in Florida for years and is credited by local pro-life advocates with saving more than 1,000 babies from abortions. Now, a new video celebrates his work — and thousands have already watched it and celebrated with them. Barros does most of his work at the Orlando Women’s Center abortion clinic. it was there, in June, that he helped a woman nine months pregnant who was considering abortion. A pro-life blog has the rest of the story: According to pro-lifers, ” Danielle actually looked up on the abortuary’s website to see if...

    A man with significant learning difficulties has been ordered to undergo a vasectomy to prevent him from having further children in a landmark legal ruling by the High CourtMrs Justice Eleanor King, sitting in the Court of Protection, said there was "no question" of the 36-year-old having the mental capacity to use contraception and that it was "lawful and overwhelmingly in his best interests" for him to be sterilised. The man, identified only as DE, and his long-term girlfriend who also has learning difficulties, had a son in 2010. As a result, measures were taken to prevent another pregnancy and...

    In ancient Rome it was customary to present a newborn child to the family patriarch who would decide whether the infant would live or die. Today this right is claimed by the mothers. While the majority of even late-term abortion campaigners agree that life begins at birth at the latest, that magical moment when a tissue blob suddenly turns into a human being, there are also those who promote the mother’s right to kill her newborn child, especially after a failed abortion attempt. Not everybody phrases it as bluntly as Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, who employ the oxymoron “after-birth...

    During the first two years of this decade, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that nearly a billion people suffered from chronic undernourishment. United Nations data suggests that children were the most affected – almost half of all child deaths in the world can be attributed to hunger. Five million die every year. Inaccessibility to clean potable water kills just as many. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in conjunction with the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there are 800 million people in the world without access to clean water. And again children are the most affected...

    Her only claim to fame is standing in the way of Texas’ efforts to ban late-term abortions of babies at the point of viability, but Wendy Davis’ infamy is enough for fashion magazine Vogue to do a full spread on the Texas lawmaker. The Vogue story is replete with effusive praise for the abortion activist who has become the face of the pro-abortion movement nationally. “After more than thirteen years in public office, Senator Wendy Davis had become an overnight sensation—and speculation about whether she might run for Texas governor immediately began making the rounds,” Vogue writes. “The story got...

    Lately I’ve been noticing a new pro-life trend. Quite active on Facebook are groups and individuals who condemn any attempt to convert an abortion advocate without taking a religious approach. What I can glean of their message from social media and blog posts is that unless you lead with Jesus, you are denying His power to change that person’s mind. In other words, taking any approach other than “here’s what the Bible has to say about abortion” is irreligious folly. I have several issues with this, but let’s start with my own personal experience. I’ve shared my conversion story with...

    A newly-published study shows the highest-ever abortion-breast cancer risk for women of any previously-published study on the link between the two. A Bangladesh study published in the Journal of Dhaka Medical College on risk factors for breast cancer, led by Dr. Suraiya Jabeen, found a statistically significant 20.62-fold increased risk among women with abortion histories. The new study on the abortion-breast cancer link is by far the highest risk elevation reported among 73 published abortion-breast cancer studies. “Physical inactivity, being menopause, positive family history of breast cancer and history of induced abortion were found important risk factors,” the authors wrote....

    The pro-abortion crowd is dwindling. The movement is in shambles. Sure, there is still a lot of money involved in exploiting women in desperate situations in this way, so the industry remains, but its support among the people is slowly dying. It is really being sustained by government. It is not hard to see why not even the abortion industry itself wants to promote its coveted pro-choice label. As was recently reported, Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, wanted to abandon the word "choice" after reading poll after poll saying people increasingly do not want to be associated with...

    RICHMOND, VA, August 13, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – As part of an ongoing electoral collaboration, Planned Parenthood and the Democratic Party have again teamed up to paint Ken Cuccinelli as an extremist on abortion. The new mailing brands Cuccinelli “extremely dangerous for women,” because he would restrict “access to safe and legal abortion.” The campaign attack highlights the Republican state attorney general's commitment to defunding Planned Parenthood. The abortion provider also chides Cuccinelli for his opposition to abortion-on-demand and for supporting new regulations that force abortion facilities to meet the same standards as other surgical centers – something the flyer said...

    This past July, Russian president Vladimir Putin ignited outrage among the (primarily Western) pro-homosexual community by signing into law a ban on homosexual adoption. The new law also prohibits adoption by single parent households. Only a few days before, Putin also signed into law broad prohibitions against "gay propaganda," which included provisions that allow "the government to arrest and detain gay (or 'pro-gay') foreigners for up to 14 days before they would then be expelled from Russia" While these latter measures are no doubt draconian, they nonetheless represent a growing realization within Russian society, namely: sexual anarchy has proven devastating...

Trijicon, which manufactures optics and aiming systems for military, law enforcement, hunting and self-defense, sued the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in May arguing that the HHS mandate violates the company owners’ deeply held Christian belief that life begins at conception.

    The dangerous RU 486 abortion drug has nearly claimed the lives of two million unborn children in the United States since its approval at the end of the Clinton administration. The Food and Drug Administration, which approved the drug in late 1999, estimated in April 2011 that 1.52 million American women had taken RU-486 to induce an abortion. According to CDC reports, about 16.5 percent of the estimated 1.2 million abortions that take place annually in the United States involve the mifepristone drug, commonly known as RU 486. In other words, about 198,000 abortions take place each year with the...

    August 8, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The most outspoken opponents of Texas' fetal pain law may have chanted “Hail Satan,” but actress Kathleen Turner has a different view of its most celebrated opponent: “Thank the Lord for the Wendy Davises of the world.” Turner wrote in The Hollywood Reporter this morning that she found Davis' 11-hour filibuster against the state's 20-week abortion ban “exhilarating to watch.” In addition to the pink-sneaker-clad state senator, Turner saluted Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores for having the “courage to speak of her own experience with abortion.” During testimony on a sex education bill in April, Lucy...

    Tens of thousands of people complained about a Facebook page that promotes the notion that the Virgin Mary should have had an abortion. Titled “Virgin Mary Should’ve Aborted,” the administrator of the page claims to “explain what really happened in the biblical times, since the bible is full of lies.” After a massive campaign to contact Facebook and a corresponding hashtag campaign on Twitter, it appears the page has been taken down. “Virgin Mary Should’ve Aborted,” which had at its peak about 6,800 likes, was taken down Wednesday, likely in response to complaints from Christian activists. The effort against the...

Today’s decision appears here. Derzis is well-known to pro-life advocates, she runs the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi and she is still operating a clinic in Birmingham doing abortions despite a previous order by...

    A Michigan family has 12 boys after welcoming another baby over the weekend — a dozen sons. Ranging in age from 19 months to 21 years, Jay and Kateri Schwandt's brood of boys now have a new addition: Tucker Ray Schwandt joins Ty, Zach, Drew, Brandon, Tommy, Vinny, Calvin, Gabe, Wes, Charlie, and Luke. "I never imagined I would be sitting here with my 12th child," Kateri Schwandt, who goes by the nickname Teri, told NBC News. "We didn't know what he would be when he was first born. We don't find out. It's always a boy, but it's always...

    HOLLYWOOD, August 7, 2013 (American Life League) - Planned Parenthood’s has its guns aimed squarely at Hispanic teens, as it continues its latest foray into eugenic targeting via an unbelievably salacious novella featuring an all-Latino/Latina cast.

She receives a text and, stopping mid-dance with her boyfriend, the Winter King, dashes to a car and has sex with the caller. The scene flashes from the dance floor to the car, where Vanessa is seen gyrating and moaning, while someone videotapes...
  • Not Everyone Who Has an Abortion Is a Woman - How to Frame the Abortion Rights Issue

    The "War on Women" isn't just a war on women. Trans men and gender-non-conforming people are losing their rights too, and we need to rework how we frame these "women's issues." The last month has been particularly brutal for abortion rights activists and women's health advocates, as state after state has proposed and/or passed various bills that restrict abortion access and undermine abortion care. In response, there has been a re-energized reproductive rights movement, with many across the nation stating that they "Stand With Texas Women" or "Stand With North Carolina Women." But in this response, abortion rights activists have...

    Secular Pro-Life condemns a recent comment by comedian John Oliver, who is currently standing in for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Oliver implied that abortion restrictions are motivated solely by religion and not by secular concern for the human right to life. The comment came on Monday night’s episode. The segment, which can be viewed here, focused primarily on the Supreme Court’s recent decision weakening the Voting Rights Act. But about four and a half minutes in, the subject turned to abortion. Commenting on a recent North Carolina senate bill that addressed both abortion safety regulations and sharia law,...

    DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) – Police were called to Baylor University Medical Center’s emergency room, after a dead fetus was found in one of the public restrooms. The discovery was made about 9 a.m. on Wednesday. Dallas Police Child Abuse detectives say they think they have identified the mother and are only describing her as a juvenile. Investigators will only say the fetus was deceased, and have given no details on how developed it was or if it was viable. Hospital visitors are in disbelief that a delivery could happen with potential help so close by.

    In the wake of a rising tide of pro-life sentiments and sensibilities in America, the utter bankruptcy of the pro-abortion position is being revealed, especially in its more militant forms. The pro-abortion side is now faced with: • The beautiful reality of 3D and 4D ultrasounds, making clear that the fetus in the womb is really a carefully formed, developing baby. It is now impossible to deny that the little one seen with such clarity on the screen is a human life that is about to be snuffed out. • The brutal reality of the houses of horrors run by...

    “Yes, we are facing difficult days. Yet there is hope ahead. Have faith and love for every member of the human race. It is time to hate the sin and love the sinner. We can set the example with personal and communal repentance, revival, restoration, rebuilding, recovery and renewal.” For Alveda King, “it’s all about redemption.” Her uncle once said: “We must discover the power of love, the power – the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world. We will be able to make men...

    The whole “BroChoice” campaign — and the notion that supporting abortion is a good thing for men to do because it allows them to get out of the responsibility of becoming a parent by pressuring their partner to have an abortion– continues to expand. Rollie Williams, who calls himself a comedian, writer, and biochemist on the website Upworthy, says Oregon is the best state in the nation to have sex in because it’s laws are the most pro-abortion. That’s what he says in a piece titled, “Why Oregon Just Became The Best State To Have Sex In” under the headline...

    File this one under “unbelievable.” A Staten Island, New York, man was arrested last week after allegedly posting ads to sell his girlfriend’s (or potential love interest — we’re unsure) baby on CraigsList. Yes, really. Paul Marquez, 22, purportedly posted a photo of the baby in a section of the site called “baby+kids.” He explained that the child loves to play, but that she is getting on his nerves. He essentially offered her up, according to accounts of what unfolded, to anyone who would want to take her off his hands. “Heyy I have a 2 month old baby name...
