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

    The Local (Spain) ^ | 24 Jan 2014 13:03 GMT+01:00
    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...

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...

    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...

    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.

    What happens when a teenager who came into the world as an unplanned teenage pregnancy ends up with an unplanned pregnancy of her own? Will she bend to all the "helpful" insistence that she needs to exercise her "right to choose" before she is, as one callous presidential contender put it, "punished with a baby"? This is the plot of "Gimme Shelter," a new movie that departs from the feminist pack mentality of Hollywood. Agnes "Apple" Bailey -- played in a breakout role by "High School Musical" star Vanessa Hudgens -- looks like a poster child for Planned Parenthood at...

    On paper, "liberal intolerance" is something of an oxymoron, like "jumbo shrimp," "loyal opposition" or "conspicuous absence." But what makes oxymorons funny is that they are real things. There are jumbo shrimp. Absences can be conspicuous, opponents can be loyal, and liberals can be staggeringly and myopically intolerant. Last Friday, in a public radio interview, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo offered the sort of potted analysis of the national Republican Party one would expect from an MSNBC talk show. But he went a bit further. After nodding to the fact that, historically, the New York state Republican Party has been...

    Students say it is no coincidence that Benedictine College was chosen to lead the March for Life in the year of its consecration. “I think Mary has definitely had a hand in us taking eight buses and the overall success of our trip to the March for Life,” said Kathryn Brown, the college’s Ravens Respect Life student coordinator. The signs of Mary’s involvement are everywhere, she said. Taking a quarter of the student population more than 1,000 miles is expensive, but Kathryn  said she got a call over Christmas break from the college’s advancement office that they had found...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 25, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley condemned abortion in the starkest terms before a packed congregation of over 10,000 in Washington, D.C. Tuesday evening, insisting the Church has a duty to oppose abortion. “The Church with the candor of the child must call out the uncomfortable truth: abortion is wrong,” the Cardinal said as he celebrated the opening Mass of the annual National Prayer Vigil for Life, which occurs the night before the March for Life at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. The Mass was standing room only, with the faithful filling in...

    Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is under fire for apparently misstating facts about her life story, with a Republican opponent claiming the discrepancies raise questions about her honesty. Davis, a Democratic state senator who rose to prominence last year after delivering a lengthy filibuster against abortion restrictions, was the subject of a Dallas Morning News piece on Sunday that took issue with several details in her personal narrative.
