    A Las Vegas high school sophomore says school administrators denied her application to form a pro-life club on campus. West Career and Technical Academy Vice Principal Allan Yee allegedly told Angelique Clark that the club would be “controversial” and would make pro-choice students feel left out. He also reportedly said that others were “more qualified to speak on the issue than a high school sophomore.” …

    I’ve been there. I was 17, drugged and raped. When I learned I was pregnant, my family, counselors, and doctors took control. They intended the best. They wanted to help me. And even though there are literally no studies showing any benefit from abortion, they had total confidence in the social myth that abortion is the best option, even the only option, in cases of sexual assault. Even many pro-lifers approve of abortions in cases of rape. So surely it must be the best choice, right? Not in my case. It just added more layers of trauma, self-doubt, grief and...

    Although there are many, one of the pro-choice mantras for abortion supporters which you commonly hear is something like “keep your laws out of my vagina.” Like some we saw in Texas during the debate on HB2, where abortion advocates even used children to support killing children. Now the pro-life feminist group, New Wave Feminists has put together a little video to help educate the pro-choice masses about carrying such “stupid looking” messages: VIDEO ON LINK!!!!

    In April of 1991, Sue Thayer took a job with Planned Parenthood in the small community of Storm Lake, Iowa. She was against abortion, but she didn’t know Planned Parenthood was anything more than a health care facility. She was unaware of their focus on abortion. “I thought it would be a great place to work in order to help women,” Thayer said. “I got an entry level job as a family planning assistant.” Within a short period of time, the manager of the Planned Parenthood clinic, who was on maternity leave, decided not to return to the clinic.

    How many times have you heard a pro-abortion person say that abortion should be rare? The oft-repeated words, notably spoken by pro-abortion president, Bill Clinton, are “safe, legal, and rare.” Pro-abortion advocates often say this because it makes them look like moderates. But they are also acknowledging that they, like most people, feel uncomfortable about abortion. They may say that abortion should only be a last resort for women, but the policies they support, namely, abortion without any restrictions, actually encourage abortions to be more common. One response to the “safe, legal, rare” mantra is to ask the pro-choicer why...

    Vermont has a new Safe Haven law, which means that parents can hand over an infant to an employee at any fire station, health facility or hospital, with absolutely no questions asked. However, apparently Planned Parenthood is considered a safe place for infants in Vermont. In an advertisement from Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, the abortion business announced, “Vermont has a new safe haven law. This means that rather than abandoning your newborn, you can bring your baby to a safe place where he or she will be carried for. All Planned Parenthood health centers in Vermont are safe...

    “The most effective way to destroy people,” George Orwell once noted, “is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” In today’s culture, knowledge of history is, itself, fast becoming history. Late-night hosts sometimes make comedic hay of this growing cultural Alzheimer’s by asking people in the street mundane questions such as “Who were our allies in World War II?” to hilariously cringe-worthy responses. But there is a distinctly unfunny side to our forgetfulness. We are very much at risk, as the old saying goes, not just of repeating history because we have forgotten it, but of repeating...

Thus- the reason why Everyday Feminist blogger, Laura Kacere wrote: Abortion Isn’t a Bad Thing So we shouldn’t be talking about it like it is. It’s not just the phrase that’s the problem, but the sentiment behind it. Beneath the desire to keep abortion rare, people say, is a desire to reduce unintended pregnancies, which is completely legitimate. Unintended pregnancies are hard, can put undue stress on everyone involved, and can be reduced in pretty simple ways,...

    Not all pro-choice arguments were created equal. Some are much worse than others. Perhaps the worst is the claim that most pro-lifers aren’t consistently pro-life but are “only anti-abortion.” The assertion impersonates an argument when the pro-choice advocate starts to throw in various causes one must support in order to be “truly pro-life.” Here is an example taken from a recent email exchange I had with a friend: “I get tired of pro-lifers who are really only anti-abortion. If they were truly pro-life, they would adopt minority babies, donate to cancer research, and drop their opposition to national health care....

    While celebrities such as Kate Hudson, Khloe Kardashian, Gisele Bundchen, and Reese Witherspoon spent Mother’s Day paying tribute to the special women in their lives, Lena Dunham observed the holiday by asking others to join her in protecting abortion rights on social media. The star and creator of the HBO series Girls has been a vocal proponent for abortion throughout her career, and as the aforementioned stars were paying homage to the ladies who gave them life Sunday, Dunham was reminding her two million Twitter followers she believes life should be given strictly by choice. She tweeted:

    The Hillary Clinton campaign jabbed at House Republicans after they passed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks on Wednesday. "Politicians should not interfere with personal medical decisions, which should be left to a woman, her family and her faith, in consultation with her doctor or health care provider," Clinton's senior policy adviser Maya Harris said in a statement. She added that the bill conflicts with Roe v. Wade the Supreme Court decision that protects the right to an abortion. Court precedent has generally protected abortions up to the point of viability, at 24 weeks. “This bill is a direct...

    The House of Representatives today approved a pro-life bill that bans abortions from after 20-weeks of pregnancy up to the day of birth. The vote for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act broke down on mostly partisan lines with Republicans supporting the ban on late-term abortions and Democrats opposing it. The House approved the bill on a 242-184 vote with four Democrats (Reps. Cuellar, Langevin, Lipinski, and Peterson) voting for the bill and five Republicans voting against it (Reps. Dent, Dold, Hanna, Frelinghuysen) or voting present (Hice). (See very end of this article for how members voted). Should the...

Maureen Condic, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Utah and obtained her Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley.

    After months of wrangling, pro-life politicians and outside organizations praised the House for passing HR. 36, the "Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act," which aims to ban most abortions after 20 weeks. The final vote was 242-184, with one Republican voting "present." Four Democrats voted for the bill, and four Republicans against it. “I think America is at its best when we are standing up for the least among us," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, said in a statement released after the vote. "This debate is long overdue." The senator is expected to introduce similar legislation in the Senate. The vote...

    A woman who pretended to have cancer in order to get the state to pay for her late-term abortion has been charged. Chalice Renee Zeitner, 29, was arrested on Friday in Columbia County, Georgia, where she was living under a false name. Prosecutors allege Zeitner told her Arizona obstetrician in March 2010 that she had cancer and that her pregnancy put her life in further danger - and even produced fake documents. It remains unclear if Zeitner has a lawyer yet and when she could be extradited to Phoenix. The Arizona attorney general's office said Zeitner is accused of felony...

    Tatiana Guerra, 30, will soon give birth to her son, Murilo. She's blind, so she can't see the fuzzy results of a sonogram. To promote the Huggies diaper brand in Brazil, the ad agency Mood created a 3-dimensional model of her son as he appeared in a sonogram. It then surprised Guerra with the model, giving her a wonderful glimpse of her son that she could touch and study with her fingers.

    The Obama administration on Monday ordered all insurers to provide IUDs, the contraceptive patch and other birth control free of out-of-pocket charge to all women, rewriting the rules after reports that some insurance carriers were refusing to cover all types of contraceptives. Insurers must cover at least one brand of contraception in each of 18 different methods outlined by the Food and Drug Administration, such as oral contraceptive pills, the emergency contraceptive morning-after pill and intrauterine devices. Insurers can in some cases still impose costs to prod women to use generics rather than brand-name drugs, under the new guidance —...

    GREENVILLE, S.C. — Religious liberties were a hot topic at the Citizens United Freedom Summit Saturday, with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal taking particular offense at a remark made by Hillary Clinton on the issue. Jindal wondered how Clinton could actually change an individual’s religious views saying, “And by the way the speech in this conference where she said those of us who are pro-life should need to have our religious beliefs changed. She didn’t say how. What does it mean? Re-education camps? She proposed to have our religious beliefs changed.” “You have to see her most recent comments on religious...

    My mother was not only angry in 1950. She was pregnant and scared; seeking a D&C. Thank God my Granddaddy Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. had seen me in a dream in 1947; and he was looking and waiting for me. Granddaddy and Daddy promised to help Mother through that first unexpected pregnancy. I was born to A. D. and Naomi Ruth Barber King on January 22, 1951. Over the years, Mother recovered from her anger, finding grace in Jesus Christ. If my family had followed the abortion friendly path prescribed below, I and my siblings may never have...
