    Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters are known for their tough mentality and stop-at-nothing attitudes, so it’s no surprise that even though Garrett “G Money” Holeve has Down syndrome, he has muted his doubters and is fighting his way into the cage. On November 8, Holeve will enter the cage for his first sanctioned fight against David “Cerebral Assassin” Steffan. The fight between Holeve and Steffan, a former Special Olympian who was born with cerebral palsy, has been approved by Spire Sanctioning – an amateur MMA sanctioning body – and is being sponsored by Fighting for Autism.

    Planned Parenthood is about to bring a mammoth new abortion facility to New York City, sometimes called the abortion capital of the world because of its ponderous abortion rate. Planned Parenthood official Joan Malin told The New York Times that the facility, which will cost $9 million to build, will perform 17,500 abortions a year when it is complete. Malin also said that Planned Parenthood's patient visits in the city's other boroughs have gone up by 26 percent since 2008. More than 10 percent of Planned Parenthood's "patients" come from Queens, according to Malin. The Queens location will make the...

Pro-life groups have highlighted Orman’s abortion support and he has been running away from his position. he’s literally running away from voters, as Free Beacon reports: At a parade in Kansas on Saturday, the “independent” candidate running for Senate ran away without answering a woman’s question about his stance on abortion.

    The media’s “conscience on abortion” is profiting off of babies – in more ways than one. Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis’ online campaign store is selling baby onesies for a $20 contribution. The messages on the clothing read, “Wendy Davis for Texas” and “Generation Wendy.” (Ironic for a candidate the media showcased as an abortion heroine.) The product description read: “Let everyone know that you’re raising the next generation of Texas Democrats with this Wendy Davis onesie. Union made in the USA.” The baby sizes divided into 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months and 18-24 months. Other paraphernalia boasted messages...

    When abortion was made the law of the land, critics predicted that the number of “procedures” would multiply across America, that many would treat it as a form of birth control, and that millions of unborn babies would die. “Nonsense,” said abortion supporters. Abortion would be just for the “hard cases” so that a women would be safe from so-called “back-alley abortions.” Abortion supporters accused pro-lifers of using a “slippery slope” argument. Okay—40 years later which was right? Well, it’s pretty obvious: fifty-six million unborn children have been legally aborted since Roe v. Wade in 1973, precisely what pro-lifers predicted. Sometimes the...

    President Obama has been accused of trying to silence his critics. Apparently he’s silencing his supporters now, too. That was Gwyneth Paltrow’s experience, anyway. Obama was attending a Democratic fundraiser organized by the Hollywood star when he allegedly robbed Paltrow of her ability to communicate. After describing herself as one of the president’s “biggest fans,” Ms. Paltrow went on to declare, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.” As a heterosexual man, I’m probably not the most qualified person to evaluate President Obama’s physical attractiveness. What I can say is that no matter how handsome someone might be, there...

    Today, Pope Francis beatified Pope Paul VI, who served the Catholic Church as the bishop of Rome 1963-1978. (“Beatification” is one step below being canonized a saint.) Paul VI had a jam-packed papacy, including finishing the Second Vatican Council, traveling to all six inhabited continents (a first for popes), and historic ecumenical break-throughs. But today he’s probably most remembered for his 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae, which confirmed the Catholic Church’s long-standing teaching against contraception, abortion, and sterilization. Outside of the Catholic Church (and, unfortunately, by a large number of people within the Church as well), the teaching of Humanae Vitae...

    The Catholic Church has always condemned abortion as a grave evil. Christian writers from the first-century author of the Didache to Pope John Paul II in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae ("The Gospel of Life") have maintained that the Bible forbids abortion, just as it forbids murder. This tract will provide some examples of this consistent witness from the writings of the Fathers of the Church. As the early Christian writer Tertullian pointed out, the law of Moses ordered strict penalties for causing an abortion. We read, "If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely...

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund has launched attack ads against Sullivan, including one that says, “Dan Sullivan would let the government control what you do with your body.” I can see why the folks at Planned Parenthood would run an ad about trying to control women. After all, they’ve been helping abusive men do that for years. Planned...

    "It is [] our collective responsibility as healthcare providers to decrease maternal mortality throughout the world, and ensuring access to ‘safe’ abortion is a critical step in achieving that goal,” proclaimed Jody Steinauer, associate professor at the San Francisco General Hospital (1). Sure, the first half of that statement is good and true, preventing loss of life is elementary to sound medical practice, but is eliminating maternity itself really a prudent action to take in order to minimize mortality? Certainly the killing of a growing preborn human, the fetus, is not an ethical or reasonable solution to minimize death of...

Recent footage found of Sanger showed her proclaiming no more babies, in her push to make women stop procreating, whether they agreed or not. This is in addition to her racist, eugenicist tendencies, in which she...

Research conducted in 2006 suggested that just 19 per cent of babies born at 23 weeks survived. Yet in a study sure to reignite the ongoing debate about lowering the abortion...

According to Jeanie: “We offered her support and assisted her to the pregnancy care center next door.” According to Jeanie, this was not an isolated incident: “One couple we offered assistance to told us as they were leaving that...

    All eyes are on Tennessee. Tennessee is known as the Volunteer State, Music City USA, home of Elvis Presley, Beale Street, the buckle of the Bible belt, and the Great Smokey Mountains. Now it has another moniker…abortion destination of the Southeast. Tennessee ranks as the third state nationally for out of state women coming to get their abortions. This occurred because the ACLU and Planned Parenthood sued the people of Tennessee in a lawsuit known as Planned Parenthood vs. Sundquidst. Planned Parenthood sued to remove three regulations around abortion that had been voted into place by bi-partisan legislators. These were...

    I usually skim books by pro-abortionists—the arguments are repetitious and drawn from the same fetid pool of anti-child and (usually) anti-male rhetoric. But I believe I will have to read Katha Pollitt’s “Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights.”Is it because Pollitt’s book promises a breakthrough, so to speak, a new way of defending the indefensible? Not if you read the 100% sympathetic reviews that have appeared in the usual places (Slate, the New York Times, Salon, etc., etc.) But that’s not the point, although you keep hearing notions that an abortion absolutist is somehow reaching out to people who share none of...

    FULL TITLE: Woman who had no idea she was pregnant gave birth to twin girls after going to see the doctor for a stomach ache An Iowa woman had an eye-opening experience last week when she went to the doctor for a stomach ache and gave birth to rare twins in the hospital hours later. Shelby Magnani and her fiancé James Croskey of Ankeny, Iowa had no idea Shelby was six-months-pregnant with one child - let alone two. Ava and Anna were born by C-section last Thursday weighing just four and three pounds each. Not only was Shelby pregnant with...

    Two children were raped several times resulting in several pregnancies that ended in abortion. Each time the young victims were sent back into the hands of their abuser because the clinic or clinics where they were taken by their mother failed to report the possibility of abuse. The story begins in 2008, when a 16-year-old teen gave birth and her boyfriend’s parents realized that the baby did not look like their son, but rather like an adult male acquaintance of the teen’s mother. teensexualabuseA DNA test proved the boyfriend was not the baby’s father, and that’s when the girl admitted...

    A new report on Sex Trafficking has revealed that many women who are victims of Human Trafficking have also had several abortions at Planned Parenthood and abortion facilities. The authors interviewed several survivors of sex trafficking who stated that many of their pregnancies were forcibly aborted at abortion clinics and some of the doctors may have been clients of their pimps. In the report entitled, Health Consequences of Sex Trafficking, published by the Annals of Health Law, it reads, “the prevalence of forced abortions is an especially disturbing trend in sex trafficking…The survivors in this study reported that they often...

    FULL TITLE: Ohio televangelist ‘forced members to have vasectomies and abortions, told women to treat pregnancies as tumors and allowed children to be sexually abused’ Televangelist Ernest Angley has been accused of running an Ohio church where men are forced to get vasectomies and women abortions, and where children were sexually abused. Self-proclaimed prophet Angley has been described by some of 21 former members as a closeted-homosexual Jim Jones who's turned a blind eye to sexual abuse. But the 93-year-old has defended the allegations, saying he is simply an instrument of God. He told the Akron Beacon Journal: 'I'm not...

    Men can and do make a difference — just ask former abortion workers. In particular, they’ve noticed that no-shows and cancellations go way up when a it’s a man in a Roman collar who’s joined the vigil. The staff knows right away it’s going to be a bad day for business. We are thankful for all the priests and ministers who have helped make more “bad days” possible! Many members of the clergy have led by example by praying at 40 Days for Life vigil sites these past three weeks. It takes courage … so thank them when you see...

    Stand True Prayer Without Jesus ^ | Published: August 29, 2014 | Bryan Kemper
    When I arrived at the Ohio State House yesterday afternoon I was already skeptical about a prayer vigil that was being advertised by Planned Parenthood. I did not really expect to hear anything remotely biblical. I walked up to the steps of the State House with my pro-life signs and noticed the sign on the podium immediately. It read, “Moral Movement”. Are you kidding me? How can any movement that includes the nation’s largest child-killer call itself moral? Mark Harrington, of Created Equal, and I began to set up the signs we brought to show Planned Parenthood and their supporters...

    FULL TITLE: A young woman writes an open letter to the child she is about to abort and posts it online. – My open letter to her. A young woman writes an open letter to the child she is about to abort and posts it online. I want to start by saying that I am skeptical of this being a sincere post. I am actually praying that it is not. It seems to me that one of the biggest strategies of the pro-abortion movement is to de-stigmatize abortion: to make it a simple, no-big-deal action like clipping your nails. All...
