  • USA Today columnist complains that pro-life ‘Baby Olivia’ film could ‘stigmatize’ abortion

    (Live Action) — In an op-ed for USA Today, elections columnist Sara Pequeño admits the real reason that abortion advocates are fighting so hard to stop a prenatal development video from being shown to students in schools. It isn’t the video’s so-called “inaccuracy,” even though they repeatedly claim it will “mislead” people because it tracks the baby’s development from fertilization instead of from the mother’s last menstrual period (an estimated two weeks before the baby’s existence). The specific issue they take with Live Action’s “Meet Baby Olivia” video is that by sharing a realistic look at the development of preborn...

    On Saturday, March 23, police cars were seen arriving at Planned Parenthood Chapel Hill around 10 a.m. No ambulance arrived, leading witnesses to wonder what other type of emergency was taking place. 911 records obtained by Operation Rescue revealed that a 16-year-old girl confided in Planned Parenthood staff that she was being forced to have an abortion by others waiting outside of the building and procedure room. There were multiple people with her, including her boyfriend and at least one parent. The Planned Parenthood staffer stated she thought the boyfriend was also a minor, but she never confirmed it for...
  • Mom who aborted baby with Down syndrome says she’s a Christian, so pro-lifers should support her

    When Kelly Shannon learned her preborn baby had Down syndrome, she was upset to discover she wouldn’t be able to have an abortion under Alabama law. So she traveled to Virginia to have the abortion, and believes that her decision was the correct one — so correct, in fact, that she says since she is “a married, white, straight, Christian, grew-up-in-the-church woman,” pro-lifers should listen to her and change their minds about abortion. Shannon spoke with the States Newsroom about learning at 16 weeks by ultrasound that her preborn baby girl had Down syndrome along with a buildup of fluid...

    Updated to include guide to restrictions on letters to the William G Truesdale Adult Detention Center. (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-life rescuers in prison have made – and are making – generous sacrifices on behalf of their unborn brothers and sisters. One sacrifice is the company of likeminded men and women: Christians and other people of good will who share their conviction that innocent human life is sacred. By giving up their emotional support networks of family, friends, and colleagues, our pro-life heroes are in danger of a loneliness that can be felt even – or especially – in a crowded prison...
  • Supreme Court to Hear Another High-Stakes Abortion Case this Week

    The Supreme Court will hear a case on Wednesday surrounding the Biden administration’s attempt to require emergency room doctors to perform abortions under its interpretation of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act of 1986 (EMTALA). After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which had invented a constitutional “right” to abortion, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued guidance claiming that EMTALA requires doctors to perform abortions on patients in emergency rooms when it is “the stabilizing treatment necessary” to help in a medical emergency. Under the guidance, hospitals not in compliance could lose funding and the...

    (LifeSiteNews) –– Real Time host Bill Maher may be one of the strangest anomalies on late night TV. He is an environmentalist who is staunchly pro-abortion – chillingly, he openly admits that pro-lifers are right, that feticide is murder, but says he supports it anyway because he’s concerned about overpopulation. He is an atheist who has made an enormous amount of money sneering about religion, most famously in his documentary Religulous. He was a good friend of Hugh Hefner, the pornography king recently exposed as a sexual predator. But he is also beginning to openly question the LGBT agenda. His...

    (LifeSiteNews) – Far-left actress and The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg falsely claimed on Monday that the Ten Commandments held as sacred by Christians and Jews do not contain a prohibition on abortion, as part of a broader recitation of general pro-abortion arguments. The comments came as part of a discussion of former President and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump coming out on Monday against additional pro-life laws at the national level, instead saying that further legislative action on abortion should be relegated to individual states. “No one is obligated to have an abortion. You never have to have one, and...

    (LifeSiteNews) — As a result of significant pro-life laws continuing to be allowed to take effect, millions of American women of reproductive age live more than 200 miles from the nearest abortion facility, according to newly released data shedding light on the cumulative deterrent effect of laws to protect the preborn. National Public Radio (NPR) reported that, after the state Supreme Courts of Arizona and Florida recently ruling that laws banning most abortions can take effect, “it’s about 6 million women of reproductive age who are experiencing an increase in distance of more than 200 miles,” according to Middlebury College...
  • Gavin Newsom Proposes “Emergency” Bill to Let Arizona Abortionists Kill Babies in California

    Apparently there is an emergency that not enough babies are being killed in California. Never mind that California allows abortions up to birth and funds abortions at taxpayer expense. Now, Governor Gavin Newsom is proposing “emergency” legislation to allow Arizona abortionists to come to California to kill more babies in abortions. The move comes after the Arizona Supreme Court upheld an abortion ban that protects babies from abortions but allows an abortion if needed to save a woman’s life in an emergency. Hence, there is no emergency – because all emergency care is allowed in Arizona for pregnant women, including...

    A teacher in San Jose, California, has been arrested after being accused of raping a student 20 years ago and then coercing her to have an abortion. Shawn Thomas was a teacher at Leigh High School, as well as a football and track and field coach at Los Gatos High School. The alleged abuse took place between 2002 and 2003, but the victim did not report the crime to police until March 3, 2024. She has also filed a civil lawsuit against San Jose’s Campbell Union High School District, claiming that after forcing her to have an abortion, Thomas continued...

    Planned Parenthood’s just-released annual report reveals that the industry giant performed a record number of abortions last year – 392,715. Planned Parenthood President and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson and Board Chair of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) Tanuja Bahal introduced its 2022-2023 annual report by referring to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that declared Roe v. Wade an unconstitutional event that “took away our right to control our own bodies and lives.” And while the organization’s leaders bemoan that, since the Court’s ruling, “more than 20 states have banned some or all abortions,” the report reveals the group received...

    On April 9, the Arizona Supreme Court allowed an 1864 law to be enforced that effectively restricted abortion in all cases except when the life of the mother is in danger. The decision has supercharged the issue of abortion amid an already-contentious election year, forcing Republicans running in the battleground state to address not only the ruling, but the legal status of abortion itself. Conversations with strategists and campaigns reveal that many Republicans are acutely aware of the impact the Arizona Supreme Court’s ruling could have on races up and down the ballot. However, there is no consensus on how...

    When the Dobbs ruling overturned Roe v. Wade, we knew the abortion industry would not go away quietly without a fight. As you know, after our amicus brief was cited by the U.S. Supreme Court in overturning Roe, Liberty Counsel has been fighting the abortion industry’s attempts to make killing an unborn child a “right” in state constitutions across the country. Beyond barbaric … Now, the abortion industry is going for a bigger prize — federal legislation to force every state to wipe away all abortion restrictions. The bill even goes so far as to overturn the federal ban on...

    President Joe Biden is expected to give a speech in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday decrying the state’s six-week abortion restriction before it is set to go into effect. Biden will tie Florida’s abortion restriction to the 2024 presidential election and talk about “the stakes of this election for reproductive freedom across the entire country,” NBC News first reported. The president is expected to blame his opponent, former President Donald Trump, for Roe v. Wade being overturned in 2022 and for the wave of state restrictions in the wake of the ruling, including the recent Arizona Supreme Court decision upholding a...

    FIRST ON THE DAILY SIGNAL—Eva Edl turned 10 years old in a World War II-era death camp. She believes she may die in a United States prison. Charged by President Joe Biden’s Justice Department with violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, Edl faces up to 11 years in prison and $350,000 fines. She is about to turn 89 years old. “When I was indicted, I began to prepare to die there,” she said thoughtfully in a phone interview with The Daily Signal. “Right now, I am ambivalent. … I’m doing the best I can to get...

    No current topic is hotter, more divisive, and perhaps more determinative of modern election outcomes than abortion, but few understand more than bits and pieces of the issue. The broader contexts for the abortion debate have eluded the American public for decades, leaving most people with inadequate resources for engaging in it competently or confidently. Because their knowledge is fragmented, they can’t assemble the interlocking pieces to create the bigger picture, but must rely on the guidance of “experts” to show them the path to progress, wherever that may lead. But many of these “experts” are similarly ill-equipped for the...

    Democrat California Gov. Gavin Newsom released an ad on Sunday showing Alabama police forcing young women to undergo pregnancy tests. “Alabama’s abortion ban has no exceptions for rape or incest. Now, Republicans are trying to criminalize young women’s travel to receive abortion care. We cannot let them get away with this,” Newsom said on X as he shared the video. The video features two young, 20-something women driving an SUV toward the Alabama state line. We’re almost there. We’re gonna make it,” one woman says to the driver after looking back to see if they are being followed. Just then,...

This time, on-site pro-life eyewitnesses saw two emergencies on the same day at the University of New Mexico Center for Reproductive Health in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The information was provided by Abortion Free New Mexico. First Emergency: According to eyewitnesses, a woman was taken to an ambulance on a gurney around 2:30 p.m. on April 10, 2024.

    Singer Kelly Clarkson is the latest to jump on the pro-abortion bandwagon. The other day she falsely claimed that pro-life laws “literally kill” women. There’s just one problem with her claim. It’s 100% false. Not one single woman has died because of an abortion ban since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. But here’s what Clarkson has to say: “Last week we saw the Arizona Supreme Court uphold a law from 1864 that bans nearly all abortions,” the talk-show host and musician said during Monday’s episode of NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show. “Did you ever think in your lifetime...
