    In a startling show of incivility, pro-abortion activists hurled abuse at participants in a pro-life rally in Dublin, shouting insults, giving the finger and holding signs such as “F*** you, I’m pro-choice!” Pro-abortion campaigners also hacked into the website of pro-life group “Youth Defense” prior to the march, replacing its usual homepage with a message reading #RepealThe8thAmendment, a reference to the passage in Irish law that recognizes the “right to life” of unborn children. Meanwhile, tweeters compared demonstrators for the pro-life cause with members of ISIS and the Ku Klux Klan. The Irish Times reports that some 10,000 demonstrators showed...

    Thousands of people have gathered at Parnell Square in Dublin city centre for an anti-abortion rally. Organisers say the theme and aim of this year's march, titled 'Rally for Life', is to speak up for babies with a disability. It is being organised by Youth Defence, the Life Institute, and Precious Youth. At 2.30pm demonstrators began making their way down O'Connell Street towards their finishing point outside Leinster House. Gardaí estimated the crowd for today's rally at between 5,000 and 8,000, while organisers said the figure was between 25,000 and 30,000.

    Abort67, the project that uses abortion victim photographs to convey the reality of abortion, is prepared to press charges against an individual captured on security cameras at a display in Brighton on the 11th June 2015. Founder of the project, Andy Stephenson, said he released the video of the attack on YouTube primarily to identify the man, but equally to highlight the need for the group to collect evidence of such attacks for use in court. The group has been criticised by the abortion industry, in particular the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), which has urged MPs to create buffer...

    In 1977, abortion was legal throughout the country during all nine months of pregnancy. When an obstetrician/gynecologist told teenager “Mary W” that she was 28 weeks pregnant, he suggested that she give the baby up for adoption, as few doctors in the area were willing to perform abortions that late. But Mary was determined, and she managed to find an abortionist – Dr. William Baxter Waddill. On March 2, 1977, Mary arrived at Westminster Community Hospital for a saline abortion. Saline abortions are seldom performed today because of the possibility of live births, but in the ’70s and ’80s, they...

    Our nation, formed in such idealism in 1776, today is under assault. Some people might think that word “assault” is just a metaphor. Our values under “assault.” Our religious rights of conscience being “attacked.” All that is true, of course. But I’m talking about real, literal assault. Unborn babies in today’s America are literally – not figuratively – assaulted. They are physically attacked in the womb, dismembered, often in the most painful ways imaginable. They, even more than our nation itself, are truly “under assault.” Through the work of National Right to Life, our state affiliates, local chapters and others,...

    Far too often, women who choose to be childfree are asked to defend their “immature,” “selfish” lifestyles. They’re told that motherhood is the “most important job in the world” and face accusations of living “meaningless” lives. The number of childfree women is at a record high: 48 percent of women between the ages of 18 and 44 don’t have kids, according to 2014 Census numbers. The Huffington Post and YouGov asked 124 women why they choose to be childfree.

In legal filings in federal court, attorney Douglas Drury who represents Christ tells Judge Steven Logan that he should dismiss the lawsuit filed on behalf of abortion providers and doctors because the case is not “ripe” for consideration. “Plaintiffs and their patients have not suffered any injury in fact,” Drury wrote. That same argument is being made by the Attorney General’s Office representing the Arizona Medical Board, the agency that...

Circuit Judge Charles Dodson on Thursday sided with lawyers representing a Gainesville clinic challenging the law. The law took effect on July 1 despite the lawsuit.

Lawyers for the state argued there is no need for an injunction and said the new requirement...

    Last week’s Supreme Court ruling forcing every state to recognize same-sex marriage has inspired a New York Times post by David Leonhardt and Alicia Parlapiano, exploring why increasing public acceptance of homosexuality hasn’t been accompanied by increasing acceptance of abortion. This is a question we’ve explored here before too, and they come to basically the same conclusion: while the case against same-sex marriage is somewhat abstract and gay causes tend to have an edge with Americans’ live-and-let-live sensibilities, the fact that abortion has a specific victim means an “unavoidable tension between a mother’s rights and a fetus’s” can never be...

    As we begin the second half of 2015, some pro-lifers may be discouraged by recent judicial intervention that allows abortion facilities to remain open, or prevents other pro-life laws from passing. But the truth is, the pro-life side is still winning. This year alone, 51 new pro-life laws have been enacted. As the Guttmacher Institute reports, there have been 282 abortion restrictions since 2010. Guttmacher notes that pro-life laws passed in the first half of 2015 already exceed all of 2014.

School-based health clinics in at least 13 Seattle-area public high schools and middle schools offer long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), including IUDs and hormonal implants, to students in sixth-grade and above at no cost, according to Washington State officials. LARCs are associated with serious side effects, such as uterine perforation and infection. IUDs, specifically, can also act as abortifacients by preventing the implantation of a fertilized egg....

    It seems Planned Parenthood of the Heartland has a hiring problem. The Norfolk Daily News reports Sunday on the difficult the abortion giant is having keeping an abortion doctor employed. Earlier this year, Dr. C.J. LaBenz, their abortionist, left, as Live Action reported in April. Planned Parenthood’s Omaha and Lincoln clinics were left without a regular abortionist. Lest the baby killing be left undone, Planned Parenthood, the organization always begging for money, flies an abortion doctor from Massachusetts to Nebraska. However, he or she can only abort on a part-time basis; therefore, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland now kills babies...

    A judge this afternoon granted an emergency injunction that blocks Florida’s newest abortion law from going into effect tomorrow as planned. The new law requires women to wait at least 24-hours after meeting in person with her doctor before the procedure can go forward. The law, which was scheduled to go into effect on Wednesday, will remain blocked while the case proceeds. In an 11-page ruling, Leon County Circuit Court Judge Charles Francis emphasized that he was not ruling on whether the law violated a woman’s right to privacy but whether the groups that sought the emergency order were entitled...

    The Supreme Court of the United States ruled on Monday to stay the order of a lower federal court requiring abortion clinics in Texas to close or remain closed. The order from the court in Whole Woman’s Health et al. v. Cole, Comm’r, Texas DHS, et al. maintains the status quo while the Court decides whether to decide the case on the merits on any appeal. Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Antonin Scalia, Justice Clarence Thomas, and Justice Samuel Alito, voted to deny the application for stay. Breitbart Texas reported that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit...

    Just when Texas pro-lifers thought they had finally shaken off opponents to a bill that threatens the state's abortion clinics, SCOTUS has halted their celebration. In another confusing turn of events for House Bill 2, a pro-life bill that bans abortions at 20 weeks and strengthens regulations for the state's abortion clinics, the Supreme Court of the United States just sided with the clinics and granted a stay in the case, allowing them to remain open for the time being. The justices voted 5-4 to grant an emergency appeal from the clinics after a federal appeals court upheld new regulations...

    TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A judge's decision to block Kansas from banning a common second-trimester abortion procedure eventually could reshape the state's legal climate and intensify conservative Republicans' push to change how the highest court is selected. The law prohibiting a procedure that critics describe as dismembering a fetus likely creates too big an obstacle for women seeking abortions, Shawnee County District Court Judge Larry Hendricks ruled last week, an order that'll remain in effect until he reviews a lawsuit filed by an abortion rights group. He also declared that the Kansas Constitution creates a right to an abortion that...

    Continuing to make sure that female employees and students have access to birth control, but that religious non-profit organizations where those women work or study do not have to provide it, the Supreme Court took action Monday on a case that is developing for next Term. In a two-page order, the Court turned aside requests by Roman Catholic colleges, charities, and other non-profits in Pennsylvania to keep on hold a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, rejecting those groups’ challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate.   Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., had temporarily put that...

    A website claiming to have been created by a 26-year-old pregnant woman, who intends to have an abortion on July 10, has issued a challenge to pro-life donors, stating that if they want to save her unborn baby's life, they must donate $1 million in three days through the website or else she will have the abortion. On a website called ProLifeandAntiWoman.com, the alleged pregnant graduate student writes that she's seven-weeks pregnant and has "every intention of having an abortion," but is giving the "157 million Americans that identify as pro-life" the chance to prevent it. The student explains that...

    Pro-choice activist Ellen Willis, whom the book Women of Color and the Reproductive Rights Movement describes as a “well-known feminist journalist,” was interviewed in 1996. She said that her early abortion rights work was about: “asserting autonomy and subjecthood; it was about the right to have sex, play God, to bring life into the world.” Jennifer Nelson Women of Color and the Reproductive Rights Movement (New York: New York University Press, 2003) 3

    “Because the fetus feels no pain, a function of the brain as yet undeveloped, and the woman acts under her own will and conscience, it is still not violence to a human being.… It is not enough to say that abortion is not violent. Abortion is a positive decision and not a lesser evil. It gives women control over their lives, their fertility, their education, their vocations, and their responsibility to their families, and is therefore profamily and pro-life.” Pro-choice Methodist pastor John M Swomley John M Swomley Compulsory Pregnancy: the War against American Women (Amherst, New York: Humanist Press,...

    A Minneapolis teen stomped his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter to death to keep her from crying. Cody Feran-Baum, 17, admitted to investigators he kicked little Sophia O’Neill in the back, laid her on the floor and stomped on her back, authorities said. “It was, it was bad,” Feran-Baum said when asked how hard he’d kicked the tot. “It was hard.” The vicious blows split the girl’s left kidney and pancreas in two, ripped her liver loose from a ligament, fractured eight ribs and collapsed a lung. Feran-Baum, who is not Sophia’s father, was babysitting on June 9 while the mother left...

    FULL TITLE: Marie Stopes doctor and nurses 'bungled woman's abortion then sent her home despite symptoms of internal bleeding that killed her just hours later' A doctor and two nurses appeared in court today charged with the manslaughter of a pregnant woman who died from massive blood loss following a bungled abortion. Aisha Chithira, 32, had travelled from Dublin to a west London branch of the Marie Stopes clinic for the procedure on January 21, 2012 and collapsed hours later in a taxi in Slough, Berkshire. The cause of her death was given as 'extensive internal bleeding' following the abortion,...
