    The Guttmacher Institute, a research firm that is squarely in the pro-abortion camp, has released a new study, “Abortion Incidence and Service Availability in the United States, 2014,” that is as interesting in its findings as it is in its interpretation of the data. Its central finding is striking: The number of abortions has fallen to the lowest level since 1974, the year following Roe v. Wade. “In 2014,” it concludes, “an estimated 926,200 abortions were performed in the United States, 12% fewer than in 2011; the 2014 abortion rate was 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44, representing a...

    A Kentucky abortion facility caught masquerading as a doctor’s office will close permanently on Jan. 27, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports. In the spring of 2016, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin’s administration filed a lawsuit accusing the EMW Women’s Clinic in Lexington of illegally operating an abortion clinic disguised as a doctor’s office. Bevin’s administration asked a court for permission to close the practice, saying it was not licensed as an abortion facility. State health investigators also found unsanitary conditions inside the facility, according to the Courier Journal. The state Supreme Court sided with the governor in August. It has not been...

Gosnell — who has been called America’s “most prolific serial killer” — operated what the 300-page grand jury report later called a “baby charnel house,” in which he regularly killed babies born alive at his clinic, which itself was staffed with inexperienced nurses and littered with blood-stained furniture and the remains of fetuses stored in basement freezers.

"I would respect it and follow it," Sessions said, while admitting he still thinks the Roe v. Wade decision was "colossally erroneous." Sessions also indicated he agreed with President-elect Donald Trump that the debate over same-sex marriage is already "settled."...

    A Republican-run House panel created to investigate Planned Parenthood and the world of fetal tissue research urged Congress on Wednesday to halt federal payments to the women’s health organization. Democrats said the GOP probe had unearthed no wrongdoing and wasted taxpayers’ money in an abusive investigation reminiscent of the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy. The Republican recommendation was included in the special committee’s final report and was no surprise. The GOP released the 471-page document just 16 days before Donald Trump becomes president, at the start of a year in which many Republicans hope Congress will finally cut off federal funds...

    It’s interesting to see groups that describe themselves as “pro-choice” attack organizations that offer pregnant women choices that don’t involve abortion. Planned Parenthood and NARAL, two of the largest abortion advocacy groups in the United States, have a history of fighting pro-life pregnancy centers that offer women and their babies life-affirming choices and support. But the latest group to launch a similar attack is a west coast United Methodist group. The Western Methodist Justice Movement recently urged its members to “put CPCs [Crisis Pregnancy Centers] on the defense” by supporting a California law that forces pregnancy centers to promote abortion,...

    After more than a year of delays, Texas is officially kicking Planned Parenthood out of the state’s Medicaid program. In a move that could affect thousands of low-income women, state health officials on Tuesday delivered a final legal notice to defund the organization from the Medicaid program through which it provides family planning and women’s health services to the poor. Planned Parenthood had previously received $3.1 million in Medicaid funding, but those dollars will be nixed in 30 days, according to the notice which was obtained by The Texas Tribune. That cut-off day will only be delayed if the organization...

    Two-thirds of Americans surveyed, including four out of 10 evangelicals, believe physician-assisted suicide is morally acceptable, according to a new poll, Christianity Today reports. “If they are facing a slow, painful death, Americans want options. Many believe that asking for help in dying is a moral option. They don’t believe that suffering until they die of natural causes is the only way out,” said Scott McConnell, Executive Director of LifeWay Research, which conducted the poll. Among faith groups, whether Catholics and evangelical Protestants who are traditionally pro-life or no specific denomination identified, more than 50 percent in all demographics support...

    The Christmas celebration is centered around the birth of the Christ child, but a UK group is using the holiday to push abortion. Abortion is illegal in Ireland, but the country is facing global pressure from the United Nations and pro-abortion groups, backed by some of the world’s richest men, to legalize abortion on demand by repealing its Eighth Amendment. The London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign is upping the pressure this Christmas by urging women to to advocate for abortion on social media as they travel during the holidays. Marie Claire reports more about the pro-abortion Christmas campaign: This Christmas, a...

    Obama’s ‘Eleventh Hour Power Grab’ Bars States From Pulling Planned Parenthood Funds By Bradford Richardson - December 14, 2016 President Obama is delivering a generous parting gift to Planned Parenthood in the form of a rule prohibiting states from divesting millions of dollars from the nation’s largest abortion provider. The final version of the rule, issued by the Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday, requires states to distribute dollars from Title X of the Public Health Service Act without taking into account whether recipient clinics perform abortions. The edict is set to go into effect Jan. 18, two...

    *** Abortions committed in frames of mandatory medical insurance are similar to giving drugs and alcohol for freeMoscow, December 13, Interfax - The Russian Church insists on cancelling mandatory health insurance coverage for abortions. "Abortions should stop being a part of mandatory health insurance, a norm of life for doctors, women and men, acceptable practice for society. Pregnancy is not an illness, and abortion is not a normal medical operation," head of the Synodal Department for Church, Society and Media Relations Vladimir Legoyda said in his article published on Tuesday by Izvestia daily. He reminded that abortion made on woman's...

    Barack Obama’s Health and Human Services Department (HHS) issued a final rule Wednesday designed to thwart state efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. The rule bans withholding federal funds from the abortion giant’s affiliates and other entities that perform abortion for any reason other than the ability to provide Title X “family planning” services, and is scheduled to take effect two days prior to President-elect Donald Trump’s January 20 inauguration. The regulation is in direct response to the effort of more than a dozen states to defund Planned Parenthood, and was set up by HHS to entail a laborious process to...

    Don’t pay your taxes if Congress defunds Planned Parenthood, feminist and abortion activist Gloria Steinem told a women’s group on Thursday. Reuters reports Steinem said she is worried about the future of abortion because of in-coming President Donald Trump. Trump promised to sign a bill to defund Planned Parenthood as long as it continues to do abortions and to appoint pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. Steinem said abortion activists should consider tax resistance if Congress defunds the abortion chain of its half a billion in taxpayer dollars. “In this case, we can say ‘I’m sending the part of...

    Leave it to ABC’s The View to connect Christmas – the celebration of the world’s most important birth – to abortion. But that it did. According to Whoopi Goldberg, the right to publicly celebrate Christmas is the same as a “woman’s right to choose.” During The View on Dec. 13, Goldberg brought up a story from Texas where a “public school teacher was forced to remove a display, a – a Christmas display of Linus,” based off of the Peanuts film A Charlie Brown Christmas. That display, she added, included a Biblical quote from the cartoon movie reading, “For unto...

    Nothing could make a liberal power couple’s hearts swell up with pride more than the sweet sounds of their young daughter throwing a pro-abortion hissy fit. That’s exactly what happened Tuesday on The View, when actress/comedian Ali Wentworth, married to ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, boasted about how “upset” her young daughter was with Trump’s win. Wentworth bragged that the 14-year-old ranted and raved around their home afterwards, sulking about abortion and “women’s rights.” You know, the typical story told around the watercooler except on national television. As The View hosts tried to shift the conversation to Wentworth’s new TV show,...

    FULL TITLE: Samantha Bee Slams Bill to Ban Abortions, Says Pro-Lifers Like “Sticking Your Face in a Teen’s Vagina” Samantha Bee calls herself a comedian, but her form of “comedy” is little more than insults and sexual innuendos that attack those she disagrees with politically. One of her favorite targets is pro-lifers. On her Monday night TV show, Bee lobbed insults at Ohio after its legislature passed a bill to prohibit abortions when an unborn baby has a detectable heartbeat, about 22 days after conception, Entertainment Weekly reports. That bill, as well as a second, overlapping bill to prohibit abortions...

    As if there wasn’t enough controversy surrounding abortion these days (and taking away women’s basic rights to have ownership over their bodies), Oklahoma has plans to force hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants, and public schools to post pro-life signs inside restrooms directing pregnant women where to receive services (like finding an adoption agency) as part of an effort to reduce abortions in the state. Um, what?
