    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...
  • Late-Term Abortions Become Fashionable? Vogue Does Huge Profile of Wendy Davis

    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...

As the piece mentions, USD has had issues in the past when it comes to being consistent with its Catholic identity, including on the abortion issue. The piece also mentions that LSRJ has had a pro-abortion presence on other campuses,...

    SAN DIEGO — It’s January 2015, and a newly elected House member from California walks side by side with his male partner to be sworn into office in Washington. The young lawmaker is a supporter of same-sex marriage. He believes the government should keep abortion legal. He considers himself an environmentalist. He's also a Republican. . . Despite his potential of being a maverick if he makes it to Congress, DeMaio is not a fringe candidate. He has early support from the party establishment — the National Republican Congressional Committee, the official party group responsible for electing Republicans to the...

    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....

    PROVIDENCE, RI, August 14, 2013 ( – Bishop Thomas Tobin of the Diocese of Providence has revealed that he changed his voting registration from the Democratic to the Republican Party after what he said was an "awful" 2012 Democratic Convention, reports WPRI. At the 2012 Convention the party strongly endorsed abortion on demand and same-sex “marriage.” Addressing a meeting of the Rhode Island Young Republicans, the bishop said, “I just said I can’t be associated structurally with that group, in terms of abortion and NARAL and Planned Parenthood, and [the] same-sex marriage agenda and cultural destruction I saw going on....

    In a column yesterday, the NYT’s Frank Bruni tried to examine what the various mindsets are behind the “roots of rape” in America. He cited an author and psychology professor who blamed trivial things like the phrase “you throw like a girl”, and who also foolishly tried to blame the pro-life movement for ‘disrespect of a woman being able to control her own body’ – to paraphrase (via Newsbusters’ Matt Vespa by way of Memeorandum): “We start boys off at a very early age,” Kilmartin told me during a recent phone conversation. “When the worst thing we say to a...

Three people tested using a special form of MRI called functional magnetic resonance imaging were able to answer simple “yes” or “no” questions, the team at Western University in London, Ontario report. They say their findings don’t mean everyone in a coma or a persistent vegetative state is conscious, but it should help doctors...

    Washington, D.C.’s health insurance exchange has awarded a $375,000 grant to abortion provider Planned Parenthood to help enroll participants in Obamacare, the exchange announced on Tuesday. As part of its effort to boost enrollment in the exchange created by President Obama’s health care law, the D.C. Health Benefit Exchange doled out $6.4 million to 35 DC-based groups. Those groups include local churches as well as health care and community organizations. One of the largest awards went to Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington D.C.

    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 ( – 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...

An escalation of their hostile behavior has every possibility of spilling out into the neighborhood, causing a safety concern to residents along Bleckley,” Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Policy Advisor for Operation Rescue told...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., August 13, 2013 (LifeSiteNews) – In a move that underscores the hot-and-cold approach of the Obama administration toward enforcement of its controversial Obamacare contraceptive coverage mandate, the Justice Department announced last week that it will not mount a defense against a lawsuit filed by a Michigan-based weapons company seeking a religiously-based exemption from the rule. 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.

    Terry McAuliffe is bringing his radical pro-abortion agenda to a whole new level. McAuliffe is joining forces with the standard-bearer for late-term abortion (i.e. the killing of a viable baby), Wendy Davis, literally fundraising off the brutal destruction of human life and endangering women (though it’s not the first time). Davis is the pro-abortion legislator who inspired a mob to literally shut down the Texas legislature earlier this year in order to prevent a bill from passing that would ban late-term abortions and ensure that abortion clinics abide under reasonable health standards. Now, she is joining forces with McAuliffe to...
