    Within 24 hours the patient's responses had improved and in just three days he was fully conscious and had fist-bumped a doctor. Doctors have woken a coma patient for the first time ever by jump-starting his brain using a pioneering ultrasound technique. A saucer-sized device was put against the side of the 25-year-old patient’s head over a 10 minute period. Each of the 10 half-minute, low-intensity pulses created acoustic energy to stimulate brain tissue. The patient’s responses improved measurably within 24 hours. In three days he was fully conscious and had complete language comprehension. He could nod his head “yes”...
  • Still 'pro-choice' after this? Then you have no soul

    Moral clarity alert. The kid gloves are off. Time for some serious soul searching. You proponents of the torturous live-dismemberment of children in the womb, just knock it off already. Your pro-abortion euphemisms – “pro-choice,” “reproductive freedom,” “women’s rights” and other such propagandist nonsense – have run their shameful course. As you regressive “progressives” like to say, “The science is settled.” Pre-born babies are objectively and empirically distinct persons with emotions, autonomy (though in a dependent stage of human development, not unlike post-birth babies) and the unalienable human rights intrinsic to all human beings.

    Kentucky state Senators passed a bill Monday to require that abortion doctors perform an ultrasound and describe the unborn baby to the mother before an abortion. The Courier-Journal reports Kentucky Senate Bill 152 passed with a strong majority in the Kentucky Senate but could face opposition in the state House. The bill would require abortion center staff to display the ultrasound image for the woman and describe the dimensions of her unborn baby and the presence of internal organs, if seen, according to the Associated Press. The bill includes fines of up to $100,000 for the first offense and $250,000...

    Culture surrounding the annual Super Bowl usually isn’t complete without some haggling over controversial advertisements as companies try to make the most of their $5 million half minute.

    A Super Bowl Doritos ad featuring a woman who goes into premature labor when the father teases his unborn child with nacho chips has drawn both outrage and applause on social media. On Super Bowl Sunday -- the biggest advertising day of the year in the US -- marketing giants pulled out every trick in the trade, enlisting celebrity power to peddle their brands and creating strange and wacky storylines to try and retain viewers' attention. But while most ads garnered a chuckle at most, it was a Doritos commercial titled "Ultrasound" that had the internet freaking out, with some...

    Dr. Mary Gatter, President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council, was seen in a second video released yesterday by the Center for Medical Progress, haggling over fetal organ procurement compensation. While the haggling was by far the most damning part of the conversation, Dr. Gatter also mentioned off-hand her involvement with political action and research on various issues in the abortion industry – one of them being, in her words, an ultrasound study yielding “nuanced” results. Despite the fact that multiple studies prior to this one have found that close to 80 percent of women change their minds and choose...

    Every woman and every man has to look at these videos and think: What has gone wrong in our nation…. The cruelty of denying women over and over again ultrasounds so that they can see the life they carry within them and yet using that same technology to make sure that organs are preserved so that they can be presumably sold to save others. This is a terrible moment. And it is made more terrible by the absolute deafening silence of the Democrat party. ~ Republican Presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina, remarking on the undercover Planned Parenthood fetal tissue harvesting videos...

    HOUSTON — Six days a week, a big blue bus parks right across the street from Houston's Planned Parenthood clinic. At 78,000 square feet, it's one of the largest abortion facilities in the United States. The bus, operated by Houston's Coalition for Life, offers women contemplating an abortion a second chance. It provides free ultrasounds and pregnancy tests to any woman in need. Life and death decisions are literally made on the bus. More than 7,000 women have stepped aboard since it opened four years ago and nine out of 10 have decided to keep their unborn children.

    The nation’s oldest abortion rights advocacy group attacked Gov. Scott Walker and his presidential aspirations on June 18, 2015 with a TV ad called "Crazy Ideas." In it, NARAL Pro-Choice America, formerly the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, made a claim about comments Walker made about abortion and transvaginal ultrasounds. Walker, according to the group, "said that forcing women facing abortion to get invasive ultrasounds was 'just a cool thing.' " Let’s see if that’s what he said.

    One step forward . . . Since the only real policy fights concerning abortion anymore are the ones fought in courtrooms - and nothing is ever really decided until the Supreme Court makes a decision in some manner - the past week’s outcomes of two major state cases give us a sense of what passes muster and what doesn’t as states who are so inclined seek to put restrictions on the procedure. Yes, Texas, you can make abortion clinics adhere to the same standards as every other type of “medical” facility, lest we end up with more Kermit Gosnell stories:...

    Politico reported Wednesday on a controversial statement made by Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in a piece entitled “Scott Walker on mandatory ultrasounds: ‘It’s just a cool thing out there.'” The only problem? Walker never said that. In an interview with radio host Dana Loesch, Walker defended a law he signed that required an ultrasound be performed before an abortion. But the context makes clear that ultrasounds were a “cool thing,” not mandatory ultrasounds before an abortions. In particular, he made his statement during a discussion of people who keep ultrasounds of their own children:

    Recently, scientists from Swinburne University of Technology in Australia and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) have jointly demonstrated cream separation from natural whole milk at liter-scales for the first time using ultrasonic standing waves—a novel, fast and nondestructive separation technique typically used only in small-scale settings. At the 169th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), being held May 18-22 2015 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the researchers will report the key design and effective operating parameters for milk fat separation in batch and continuous systems. The project, co-funded by the Geoffrey-Gardiner Dairy Foundation and the Australian Research...

    Rhythm isn't something most babies are born with. But this one - which is yet to be born - seems to have it in abundance. In this incredible video of an ultrasound scan, the 14-week-old foetus appears to clap its hands together, as the mother sings If You're Happy And You Know It Clap Your Hands. The parents can be heard laughing in the background as the doctor then rewinds the tape to make it look like that baby was clapping along to their singing. The 15-second video that was uploaded to YouTube yesterday by Jen Cardinal, who is based...

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A Wyoming legislative committee on Tuesday rejected a bill that would have required doctors to advise women seeking abortions at least 24 hours before the procedure that they could see an ultrasound image of the fetus and listen to its heartbeat. The House Travel, Recreation, Wildlife and Cultural Resources Committee voted 6-3 against the bill sponsored by Rep. Tom Reeder, R-Casper. Reeder told the committee the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that requiring doctors to give such advice 24 hours before a scheduled abortion procedure doesn't violate women's right to abortion. Reeder said his bill would help...

    CNN)One of my favorite things I do at work is fetal ultrasound. I'm a practicing radiologist, and the miracle of peeking into that intimate space and then looking up to catch the awe in the parents' faces never seems to get old. But a couple of months ago I got the call that all physicians dread. A fellow doctor called me, irate, saying, "You missed something!" My heart dropped and I waited to hear what I had overlooked or misdiagnosed. The OB-GYN went on. "I delivered a baby girl yesterday with a cleft lip and palate. You did not mention...

A photo of the ultrasound went viral and inspired mothers to share images of their own unborn children. Millions of people were exposed to a strong pro-life message, even if many of them did not realize it at the time. Even the major news networks, normally reliable shills for “reproductive justice,” admitted that they were indeed seeing pictures of babies. When a matter is as hotly charged as the...

    The North Carolina Attorney General will appeal a federal appeals court’s ruling striking down a North Carolina law allowing women a chance to see an ultrasound of their unborn child before an abortion is done. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit struck down a North Carolina law requiring a 24-hour waiting period and informed consent of a woman before an abortion is performed. In January 2013, a district court imposed a temporary injunction on the law, claiming that its mandated disclosures about abortion are an unconstitutional imposition of “the state’s philosophic and social position discouraging abortion,” rather...
