I am not giving up 80% or more of my life to care for a Down Syndrome baby that will be depend on me through his/her adult life. “Corkey” was lucky and probably the only cast to get ratings to play on the hearts of others.

    Many people don’t know that the early feminists (those who fought for a woman’s right to vote in the 1800s) were mostly pro-life. Mattie H Brinckerhoff was a popular lecturer in the Midwest on women’s suffrage and other women’s rights topics. Here is some of her writing on abortion. Her use of the term “voluntary motherhood” dealt with the choice women should have to refuse to have sex in order to avoid childbearing. It’s hard to believe, but at the time, women had no right to refuse sex with their husbands- they could not prosecute him for rape, and culture...

    A woman tells her story of an abortion of a down syndrome baby and then her subsequent birth of a disabled child. She shared this on a message board for women who aborted disabled children: I have lurked here for years, and although my story may not be welcomed with open arms, I feel compelled to share it none-the-less. Like many of you, I received a pre-natal diagnosis that our precious baby had Down syndrome and a heart defect. It was completely unexpected and devastating, obviously.

    From a former abortion clinic worker, Rayna Rapp, who is still pro-choice: Many minority women, even if they are not poor, cannot count on support for their pregnancies, and pregnancy related decision-making, from their healthcare providers.

    It’s been almost twenty years since O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder. In what was called “the trial of the century,” a jury found Simpson not guilty of killing ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. While the football star avoided going to prison, he was later ordered to pay over thirty million dollars in compensation to the victims’ families. This wasn’t the first time that Simpson had faced allegations. In 1989, he pleaded no contest to domestic violence charges after police were called to his home. Other 911 calls were made too, some of which got played...

    Yesterday’s vote by the Council of the District of Columbia to approve a bill banning even religious organizations from discriminating against employees for their “reproductive health” practices—including abortion—likely violates the Constitution and federal law, warned the D.C. mayor and attorney general weeks before the final vote. The Council’s disregard for Mayor Vincent Gray’s “significant legal concerns” increases the possibility that he may veto the legislation, which also may be halted by Congress if it can get President Obama’s signature on the repeal. “Today’s approval of this draconian bill confirms the D.C. Council’s intentional persecution of religious educators and other employers...

Police revealed the next day that Ms. Kaake was seven months pregnant at the time of her death. Her murder is a tragedy, but she wasn’t the only one who lost a life that night. Her pre-born baby girl did too. Yet her daughter is not recognized as a person under Canadian criminal law because she hadn’t yet exited her mother’s womb. And because of that legal deficiency, no murder charge will ever be laid against the person who took her life. According...

The petition, which currently has more than 180,000 signatures, began as a response to the family’s recent comments against LGBT rights.

First of all, of course God loves women who have had abortions, that’s NEVER been in question. Yet,...

The midwives, with more than 20 years’ experience, initially lost their cases against their employers in the Outer House of the Court...

    all it The Obama Rule. When will our president do something he wants to do that the Constitution or morality prohibits? When he can get away with it. President Barack Obama did not move forward with his unilateral action on immigration before the midterm elections, because he was worried he would pay too high a price. Additional congressional Democrats might have lost, and more Democrats would have blamed him for the losses. He moved forward with his unconstitutional action after the elections because he calculated — correctly — that Republican congressional leaders would let him get away with it. One...

    A South Carolina federal judge has awarded more than $197,000 in attorney’s fees and costs to the head of Columbia Christians for Life after a free speech court battle that involved years of legal wrangling at all judicial levels. “It’s certain to send a message to law enforcement, that they shouldn’t trample the rights of pro-life protesters,” Stephen Fitschen, president of National Legal Foundation (NLF), which represented the pro-life group, told LifeSiteNews. “It’s going to impact pro-lifers across the country.” Fitschen said the final victory of legal costs should provide pro-life supporters leverage when standing up for free speech while...

    Anybody paying attention to what has happened in our nation, and worldwide for that matter, regarding the lack of reverence for the dignity of life, is probably aware of the advances the culture of death has made over the past several decades. Here is some of what has happened:In 1968, a committee of 13 men at Harvard Medical School endorsed brain death as legal death; in 1981 it was approved by the American Medical Association. This has a profound effect on decisions regarding life and death and has placed physicians as the sole decision makers of who is alive and...

    oday, the Council of the District of Columbia will consider a bill that could force employers in the nation’s capital to cover elective abortions in their health plans and require even pro-life organizations to hire individuals who oppose their views on abortion. This latest attempt to violate the freedom of individuals in the District should spur Congress to better protect the conscience rights for all Americans. The “Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act,” would specifically prohibit employers from discriminating in “compensation, terms, conditions or privileges of employment” on the basis of an individual’s “reproductive health decision making” – including the “termination of...

    By a vote of 51 to 43 vote, the Senate has confirmed 37-year-old Vivek Murthy as Surgeon General of the United States. Critics say that the Obama pick is a political appointment only. Pro-lifers say that anyone the most radically pro-abortion president to date would select as America’s top doctor will most likely favor abortion. No sooner did the news of the confirmation become public that Planned Parenthood Action sent out a tweet of congratulations: PP Congrats Surgeon General Dec 2014 In the words of the Stanek Report, “Planned Parenthood support of new surgeon general says all you need to...
  • St. Joseph County considering tighter restrictions on abortion providers

    ST. JOSEPH COUNTY - A proposed ordinance could tighten restrictions on abortion providers in St. Joseph County. The ordinance could require abortion doctors to be able to admit patients to the hospital if there is a procedure complication. State law requires a doctor who performs abortions to have an admitting doctor on his staff; but this ordinance would toughen standards. It requires the doctor who performs the abortion to be able to admit his or her own patients to the hospital. "I think every member of the council should be concerned about patient health," says co-author and councilman Dan Herbster....

    ENGLEWOOD — A federal lawsuit challenging protest-free buffer zones around abortion clinics and other health-care facilities in Englewood has been withdrawn. The plaintiffs, two anti-abortion advocates known for counseling women outside an Engle Street clinic, voluntarily dismissed the suit last month, according to City Attorney William Bailey. The reason for the dismissal was not clear. The attorney who filed the suit, Edward Gilhooly of the Legal Center for Defense of Life in Morristown, died in August. His co-counsel, Francis Manion of the American Center for Law and Justice in Kentucky, did not return calls for comment. Rosemary Garrett, one of...

  • Infanticide now ‘debatable’ in bioethics - on its way to ‘justifiable

    The late Richard John Neuhaus famously wrote of bioethicists: Thousands of medical ethicists and bioethicists, as they are called, professionally guide the unthinkable on its passage through the debatable on the way to becoming the justifiable until it is finally established as unexceptionable. In my over 20 years engaged in trying to push back against the bioethics movement, I have found that to be an absolutely accurate formula.Take, as one example, dehydrating the cognitively devastated to death–a slow and potentially agonizing death. That was once unthinkable, it became debatable in the 1980s, and is now unexceptional.Allowing infanticide has now reached the “debatable on the way...

    From a proabortion clergy member: “Clearly, giving a woman the right to abortion is a compassionate stand, and anytime compassion rules over judgment, we see the kingdom of God. I can’t get any of these Bible thumping, antiabortion people to show me any place at all scripture where Jesus ever says, “You made your bed, now lie in it. Too bad…” I see Jesus as being outrageously gracious, outrageously forgiving. If Jesus were right here today, I think he would say, “I’m sad that anyone has to have an abortion. I’m sad that has to be a choice. But you’ve...
