    Catholic Bishops Blast Obama Admin for Forcing Churches to Pay for Abortions The leading pro-life spokesmen for the Catholic bishops are blasting an Obama administration decision revoking federal protection for chruches in California forced to pay for abortions. As LifeNews reported, churches in California are officially subject to an onerous state regulation that requires them to pay for abortions, thanks to a ruling by the Obama administration.The troubling situation began in 2014 when the California Department of Managed Health Care reclassified abortion as a “basic health service” under the Affordable Care Act and ordered all insurance plans in the state...

    "While Abortions Kill Babies, Court in Argentina Grants Basic Human Rights to an Orangutan" An Argentinian court ruled this week that a orangutan named Sandra should receive some of the same legal rights as human beings, according to the BBC. Position 9 Not in use The court decided that while the 20-year-old animal was not a human being, she is a “person” who deserves certain legal rights, according to the report. Lawyers for the orangutan argued that she was being illegally detained in the Buenos Aires zoo and that she had “probable cognitive capability,” the BBC reported. The court ruled...

    An Evangelical Christian leader went against the grain of her religious subset’s strong pro-life stance this week and endorsed pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton for president. Deborah Fikes is the executive advisor to the World Evangelical Alliance, which works with churches in 129 countries to spread the Christian message. The Hill reports Fikes voiced her personal support for Clinton on Tuesday after a meeting between Christian leaders and likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. She called Clinton “trustworthy” and Trump “un-Christian” as she gave her personal endorsement to the pro-abortion candidate. “Hillary Clinton is the leader who people of faith are...

Father Patrick Henry Reardon, pastor of All Saints Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church in Chicago, who’s also an author and senior editor for the Christian magazine Touchstone, spoke in a recently published YouTube video of how throughout history until the 20th century all Christians, not just the Orthodox, but the Church fathers and Protestants as well, regarded birth control use as immoral and a sin. “Now it’s lost,” he states in the video. “And the Church really must not go with...

In the widely published video, Santella is seen emerging from the abortion facility to confront a pro-life activist. He is heard hissing and growling in a demonic voice as he holds scissors to the pro-lifer’s throat while professing that he loves killing babies and that, “I never listen to Christ.” “I do have a darkened heart,” Santella snarled. “I do, I do.

    In the early 1990s, with panic over the AIDS epidemic rising, hundreds of school districts began making condoms more accessible to students. The hope was to encourage students to practice safe sex and better protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases. A new research paper suggests that decision may have backfired. It finds that access to condoms in school led to a 10 percent increase in teen births. The effects were concentrated in schools that offered condoms with no required counseling. Those schools also saw that gonorrhea rates for women rose following the condom programs.

County Court at Law Judge Diane Bull threw out a misdemeanor count of trafficking in human organs. “Judge Diane Bull’s swift dismissal of the bogus charge against CMP founder David Daleiden of trafficking human organs is the latest confirmation that the indictments from a runaway grand jury in Houston were a politically motivated sham all along,” the Center for Medical Progress said in a statement. “The dismissal of the first indictmen [on Monday] sends a strong message to Planned...

    Carol Everett was the owner of two abortion clinics and the director of four. She has since become pro-life and now shares her story to further the pro-life movement. Everett’s association with the abortion industry began in 1973, after her husband and physician pressured her to abort her third child. The mental effects of her abortion sent her life spiraling downward. She said she began drinking, had an affair, and eventually left her husband. She then started working for a medical supply company. Through this job Everett said she saw how much money is available in the abortion business, and...

    Preborn babies with Down syndrome are still aborted at alarming rates. Abortion advocates often use birth defects like Down syndrome as an excuse for late-term abortions, and the majority of women who receive a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis still report that doctors deliver the news in an overwhelmingly negative manner. Many say that they felt pressured to have an abortion. Societally, it’s still expected that abortion will follow a Down syndrome diagnosis. Salt Lake City’s Utah Electronic High School apparently not only feels that preborn babies with Down syndrome should be aborted, but also that high schoolers should be indoctrinated...

    When all else fails, abortion activists often resort to the old “pro-lifers are forcing their religion on us” argument to push their agenda. That is what a group of Indiana University student editors used to attack a new state law that protects the dignity of unborn babies by requiring that aborted babies’ bodies be buried or cremated. The new law will help stop the kind of sale of aborted babies’ body parts that Planned Parenthood facilities in other states have been caught arranging. Although Roe v. Wade prohibits states from completely banning abortions, pro-life advocates in Indiana believe the aborted...

The facility, carafem, opened in Washington, D.C. with a brash advertising campaign and promises of hot tea, comfy robes and a five-star experience for women while they abort their unborn babies.

This summer, carafem announced that it opened a second abortion clinic in Atlanta, Georgia. According to a press release, carafem said it plans to launch “bold and unapologetic birth control and abortion care...

    The administration of former Republican presidential candidate Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) has given Planned Parenthood a waiver allowing it to continue performing abortions — even though it goes against state law. The waiver has many pro-life advocates up in arms because Planned Parenthood failed to comply with Ohio state law —a law that makes it mandatory for surgical facilities to have an emergency patient-transfer agreement in place with a local hospital. Ohio Department of Health Director Richard Hodges issued Planned Parenthood permission by issuing it a variance last week so that the abortion giant’s clinic in Cincinnati’s suburb of Mount...

    On Sunday, West Virginia’s Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Act officially took effect. The law, which bans D&E abortions, passed in February but was vetoed by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin. As Live Action News’ Calvin Freiburger reported, less than 24 hours later, West Virginia’s House and Senate overwhelmingly voted to override the veto. According to NRL News, the ban on dismemberment abortions was supported by 100% of West Virginia’s women senators and 83% of women delegates. The ban received extensive bipartisan support, and State Sen. Ryan Ferns argues that the ban is just common sense legislation. “We’re talking about ripping...

    Gallup released a new poll this week that examines people’s positions on abortion based on their religious affiliation. The poll asked people about a series of moral issues, including abortion and doctor-assisted suicide, and then examined their answers based on their religious affiliation. Researchers found major differences among religious groups, with Protestants, Catholics and Mormons taking a pro-life stance and Jews and the non-religious taking a more liberal stance. Gallup reports: Jews and those with no religious preferences have virtually identical views on the morality of abortion, doctor-assisted suicide, gay-lesbian relations and cloning animals. Jews are somewhat less likely than...

A portion of every paycheck goes to the world’s leading abortion business through the federal and state taxes allocated by your elected representatives and the unelected bureaucrats they empower. For the fiscal year ending in June 2015 (just before the Center for Medical Progress videos were released), over $550 million of your hard-earned tax dollars went to Planned Parenthood. But the states are taking the lead to end this forced partnership with “Big Abortion” and redirecting those funds to providers that better serve women...

While the entire situation was harrowing, terrifying, and tragic, what many of these vocalized opinions reveal about our culture is infinitely troubling. There’s not a legitimate debate over whether the little boy who crawled and fell into Harambe’s habitat would have died if the gorilla hadn’t been shot. CNN reported: Officials made the decision to shoot Harambe because the boy was in “imminent danger.” They feared a tranquilizer would take too long...

    In the wake of an undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood’s alleged fetal trafficking operation, the California state legislature is considering a bill that would criminalize publishing secretly recorded video footage of “health care providers.” AB 1671, which has been backed by Planned Parenthood, would criminalize the publication of confidential interactions with state-licensed medical personnel, including abortionists and clinician staff, punishable by up to one year in prison and a $10,000 fine per violation. Introduced by Los Angeles Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, the bill has received criticism from both pro-life activists and those who worry about its potential to chill free speech...

    Comedian Sarah Silverman appears to be on some sort of sick mission to convince Americans that aborting an unborn baby is funny. This week, however, her raunchy comedy routine backfired. Page Six reports Silverman told some “considerably dirty and outrageous” jokes during a recent charity event for children in New York City. Young students were in the audience when Silverman joked about abortion, sexual assault, semen and sex with her boyfriend, according to the report. The charity event benefited the ArtsConnection, which promotes art education in public schools. In addition to Silverman, children from city middle and high schools also...

    Germantown, MD – An inspection of Germantown Reproductive Health Services (GRHS) conducted last fall discovered that the late-term abortion facility had been operating without a current medical laboratory permit. Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, who is under investigation by the House Select Panel on Infant Lives, commits abortions at GRHS in Germantown, Maryland, throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Operation Rescue has obtained a copy of the inspection report dated September 25, 2015, that cites GRHS for failing to maintain a current medical laboratory permit. It allowed its permit to expire in August, 2013. The abortion facility was also cited for...

    A survey shows that a four-minute medical animation video of what happens during an abortion leads over a third of “pro-choice” women to view abortion “less favorably.” Pro-life organization Live Action’s “man-on-the-street” video below shows people watching a medical animation video of a Dilatation & Evacuation surgical Abortion Procedures video, narrated by former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino. During this second trimester abortion procedure, the abortionist uses instruments to tear the baby’s arms, legs, and body organs, and crush his or her head prior to extracting the baby’s remains from the uterus. Live Action used independent polling company Survey Monkey to...

    An attorney representing Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Josh Schaffer, has admitted that he pressured the Harris County District Attorney’s office to refocus a grand jury investigation away from his client and onto pro-life journalists David Daleiden and his associate, Sandra Merritt, of the Center for Medical Progress. Schaeffer also confessed that Assistant District Attorney Sunni Mitchell did an “end around” the State Attorney General Ken Paxton in order to share sealed video evidence with Planned Parenthood. The grand jury later returned indictments against Daleiden and Merritt. Shaffer stated publicly that he was informed by the District Attorney’s office that no...

    It’s instinctive for us to look favorably upon a situation where a markedly messed up and apostate group such as the United Methodist Church takes a step ostensibly in the direction of a better position than what they held before. But let’s check out some reasons why this is not necessarily a great reason to celebrate. First, let’s note that 310 delegates voted against the resolution to stop supporting Roe v Wade. Let that sink in. I’m no mathematician, but it sure looks like 40% of the people that United Methodist churches across the USA selected to represent them at...

    PREFACE The constitutional issues raised by Roe v. Wade have never had, a public airing and the public debate on the subject has turned on philosophical rather than legal issues. This study attempts to bring into focus some of the constitutional issues involved, but by no means exhausts them. it is merely an overview of a totally new development in constitutional law, a development that could be labeled embryonic law. That development was opened by the Roe v. Wade decision, as the issue of civil rights was opened by Plessy v. Ferguson, workers' rights by Lochner v. New York, and...

    The job of a midwife is to care for women and their babies before, during and after birth, but the leader of British midwives group is pushing to add late-term abortion advocacy to midwivesÂ’ job descriptions. Cathy Warwick, the chief executive of the Royal College of Midwives, has been facing heavy backlash ever since she used her role to push for late-term abortions for any reason up to birth, LifeNews reported. Without consulting members, Warwick recently published a new RCM policy that supports abortion on demand, according to the UK Metro. She also got the midwives group involved in a...

    Modern technology brings diagnoses earlier–even in the womb. In the U.S., that means that 90% of children with Down’s Syndrom are aborted thanks to amniocentesis. In this UK example, a child diagnosed via ultrasound with Spina Bifida was aborted [WARNING: this is very disturbing]. His mother’s experience is what follows: Yet if making that choice was hard, the physical ordeal was only just beginning. At 18 weeks pregnant, I was too far gone for a surgical termination and would have to go through a labour and delivery, under the care of midwives at our local hospital. The first step was...

    This is not violence,” an angry abortion advocate screams while physically attacking a Created Equal team member. Last week a Columbus, OH resident roughed up one of our outreach team members even before he had an opportunity to dialogue with his intended audience. It seems increasingly common for abortion advocates not only to dissent to our message but also to resort to violence. In defending the violence of abortion, abortion advocates use violence to intimidate preborn defenders. But this call for protectionism isn’t just for abortion advocates or unbelievers anymore, but we now see it cropping up among Christians, especially...

    A news station has uncovered shocking new audio evidence about a baby who was born alive at a late-term abortion facility in Phoenix, Arizona. In February, Pro-life Arizona reported learning that a city fire department transported a baby from the Family Planning Associates abortion clinic on North 7th Street to the Banner University Medical Center. “The baby was reported to be 21 weeks along (gestation) to the termination clinic, but when they removed the baby from the mother’s womb, the ‘fetus’ was breathing. A 9-1-1 call was made from clinic staff, firefighters responded and worked … to save the babies...

    One day after lawmakers passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony, Gov. Mary Fallin decided to veto the measure. On Thursday, the Oklahoma Legislature has passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony punishable by up to three years in prison. […] On Friday, Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed the measure, saying the bill was “vague” and “would not withstand a criminal constitutional legal challenge.” …
