  • 'Teen anti-abortion film contest is shameful' [Spain]

    Aragon's Education Ministry has been slammed for promoting an anti-abortion short film competition aimed at teenagers. The contest, directed at students aged 14 to 18, will reward the makers of the film that best "defends the life of the unborn" with €500 ($680) in prize money. Two private pro-life associations are behind the controversial scheme, but it's Aragon's regional ministry that has received most criticism for advertising the scheme on its website. The competition's judges will be looking for films that "offer a beautiful, suggestive and encouraging view on why women who have an unexpected pregnancy should opt for life"....

    Tens of thousands of demonstrators gathered in San Francisco Saturday for an anti-abortion march and rally. This is the 10th year for the Walk for Life West Coast, and although the event is over, it continues to have an impact on traffic in-and-out of the city Saturday night. When the event finished Saturday afternoon, traffic along the Embarcadero was sluggish, and marchers were making their way back to buses parked past AT&T Park. Early Saturday, a massive crowd gathered at Civic Center Plaza for an anti-abortion rally before marching down Market Street to Justin Herman Plaza. Many of the protesters...

    SAN FRANCISCO, January 24, 2014 ( – The Walk for Life West Coast is demanding to be seen and heard and in the mainstream media. This year, Walk for Life organizers are asking participants to take to the "twittersphere" to “end the media blackout.” Saturday will be the tenth year pro-lifers have taken to the streets of San Francisco and, year after year, Walk organizers have noticed a reliable lack of media coverage, especially in the local media. However, they have also noticed the increasing youthfulness of the crowd, and their social media accounts. So this year, when 50,000 smart-phone-toting...

    One week ago today, Governor Cuomo railed against what he called “extreme conservatives” who are “pro-life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay.” He said such persons “have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Yesterday, Mayor de Blasio said he agrees with Cuomo’s comments “100 percent.” He explained, “I interpret his [Cuomo's] remarks to say that an extremist attitude that continues the reality of violence in our communities or an extremist attitude that denies the rights of women, does not represent the views of the people of New York State.” deblasoThe spin won’t work.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 24, 2014 ( – It was a bitterly cold day in the nation’s capital Wednesday as thousands of pro-life Americans marched on the United States Supreme Court on the 41st anniversary of its Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion nationwide. As the marchers braved single digit temperatures and a below zero wind chill to demand a reversal of Roe v. Wade, a group of 20 pro-abortion counter-protesters waited for them in front of the court, chanting shrilly, carrying coat hangers and signs that said “Keep your politics out of my” womb and “Dr. Tiller is my...

    I believe that the greatest ethical issue today is that of abortion. In recent years many have come to see terrorist as more concerning than abortion. I am baffled by that, because more people were killed on September 10 in the womb of U.S. women than were killed on 9/11 in New York City. More babies were slaughtered on September 12 than adults were killed on 9/11. If we had a camera on the womb so that CNN could show us graphic videos of what actually happens in the slaughter of unborn children, abortion would be quickly abolished, but the...

    A judge allowed a Texas husband’s bid to remove his “brain dead” pregnant wife from life support, an action that would end the life of his own unborn child. Marlise Munoz collapsed in her home last November from an apparent blood clot in her lungs when she was 14 weeks pregnant with her second child. Her husband and other family members have asked the John Peter Smith Hospital in Ft. Worth to remove Marlise from life support after they were told she was “brain dead.” Ending life support would also end her unborn baby’s life. munozSo far John Peter Smith...

Her husband, Erick Munoz, will ask the court to order John Peter Smith Hospital to terminate life support for his wife and baby.

    Bristol Palin ✔ @BristolsBlog Follow Dear #WendyDavis, You Can Have a Job AND Kids @TwitchyTeam Writing on her blog, Palin called out the Texas State Senator for greatly exaggerating her ‘success story’ and criticized liberals who are still supporting her: I know you would rather think about Wendy Davis, so let’s get back to her. She’s more your type of woman. She left her kid, husband, made it into a false “made-for-tv-movie-type-tale” and then demanded that Texans have the right to kill babies. That’s the woman you libs can really get behind! Let me be clear. I think...
  • ‘Gimme Shelter’: Film a Game Changer in Abortion Debate?

    Hollywood better be careful if it values its ability to insult and alienate conservative Americans. On the heels of the implicitly patriotic and plainly pro-military “Lone Survivor” comes an even less likely studio offering. “Gimme Shelter” will be out in wide release and boasts an A-list cast – and it’s the story of a young girl risking everything to save her unborn baby. The Ronald Krauss film follows pregnant teenager “Apple” (Vanessa Hudgens) as she flees her abusive mother (Rosario Dawson) only to face rejection from her Wall Street father (Brendan Fraser) and find herself alone and desperate on the streets. Apple's...

    At a time when more and more Americans are coming to an awareness of how evil abortion is, President Barack Obama, the most fiercely pro-abortionist president in our history, is digging his heels in further. This week, he made his annual statement glorifying this hideous practice on the anniversary of the infernal 1973 Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, which greatly restricted abortion laws. Obama's statement was as unapologetic as it was grotesque, celebrating an abominable procedure that ought to be outlawed -- not glamorized, as the left does with it. Before you accuse me of hyperbole, be advised that...

She thinks having an abortion is what “religious liberty” is all about. ilysehogueAt a time when pro-life advocates are losing their religious liberties by having the Obama administration force them ti pay for drugs that may cause abortions, defending abortion — the destruction of a baby before birth — as religious liberty and freedom is sacrilegious.

    On the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, CNN’s senior legal analyst smeared the entire pro-life movement in saying on Wednesday’s AC360 Later, “They want women to have no control over their own bodies.” Jeff Toobin was referring to the Texas case where a hospital, claiming that it is following state law, has kept a brain-dead woman on life support against the family’s wishes in order to bring her unborn child to term. Toobin went on a rant against the law: [Video below the break. Audio here.] “This is the logical extension of what the anti-abortion woman – movement wants....

    resident Obama reflected on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade by encouraging Americans to recommit to the “guiding principles” of the 1973 Supreme Court decision. According to Obama: Every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health. We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom. And we resolve to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and continue to build safe and healthy communities for all our children. Because this...
  • [WATCH] Sarah Silverman promotes access to abortions in PSA starring ‘Jesus’

    Sarah Silverman’s attempt to make access to abortions cool has officially hit a new low, as the comedian is starring in a new fake PSA that features “Jesus” telling Silverman “fertilized eggs aren’t people.” In a new faux-public service announcement released Tuesday, Silverman is visited by “Jesus” in a dream. The two, while sharing some popcorn and watching a NCIS marathon, begin discussing women’s reproductive rights, and Silverman asks Jesus when life begins. “At 40,” Jesus responds half-heartedly.”But fertilized eggs aren’t people. People are people. But people who believe fertilized eggs are people are people, too. You have to love...
