  • The Left’s Love For Abortion Blinds It To Abortion Alternatives

    01/20/2022 5:41:09 AM PST · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | January 20, 2022 | Thomas Glessner
    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett drew the ire of abortion advocates with a comment during oral arguments for the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case in December. The case, to be decided this year, may spell the end of Roe v. Wade and its policy of abortion-on-demand. Recent responses from abortion proponents show how blind they are to the compelling realities of abortion alternatives. Barrett, an adoptive mother herself, asked if a woman who lacks access to abortion is freed from forced parenthood when she leaves her baby at a safe location for adoption. Barrett’s comment was...
  • DC Restaurant Confirms It's Fine with Discriminating Against Pro-Lifers in Name of Creating A 'Safe Space'

    The 49th annual March for Life will take place later this week on Friday, January 21. The days before and after surrounding the event are often a time of fellowship for pro-lifers, from all circles. For Democrats for Life of America (DFLA), this was supposed to mean holding an event for their supporters at Busboys and Poets. The establishment, however, canceled their event when learning that their would-be paying customers hold pro-life views. Kristen Day, the executive director of DFLA, emailed supporters on January 11 to let them know of the cancellation and request donations to help them find another...
  • Two Sunday Remembrances Call Out in Defense of the Full Spectrum of Human Dignity

    01/16/2022 5:10:44 AM PST · by Kaslin ^ | January 16, 2022 | David Cortman
    This week is bookended by two very important days: January 16 is Religious Freedom Sunday and Sanctity of Life Sunday, which some people alternately commemorate on January 23. These days, which honor our two first and most essential human rights, are under increasing attack in our nation. These rights, and the whole way of life we know and love, are being threatened, sometimes by the very government charged to protect them. Should these two rights—the right to life and the right to religious freedom—fall, they will take with them our whole understanding of what it means to be human and...

    Pro-life activists and religious leaders are slamming the enactment of a New Jersey bill that will legalize abortion up until the moment of birth.Gov. Phil Murphy, D-N.J., signed the Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act alongside Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver, the leadership of the state’s Senate and Assembly and Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson Thursday. The legislation will “explicitly guarantee, to every individual, the fundamental right to reproductive autonomy, which includes the right to contraception, the right to terminate a pregnancy, and the right to carry a pregnancy to term.”Additionally, the measure will “enable all qualified health care professionals to...
  • We Love Pregnancy Centers — And So Do The Women They Serve!

    01/15/2022 4:57:37 AM PST · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | January 15, 2022 | Caroline Wharton
    The abortion lobby isn’t exactly known for being kind or truthful. That’s why we see them labelling something as ghoulish as abortion as “empowerment” and something as empowering as Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRC) as “deceptive.” What’s so bad about providing amazing resources to women in need again? Here are the top three reasons you should love and support pregnancy resource centers: These centers provide many resources free of charge. Unlike Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities who like to fleece women during their hard times, PRCs understand that women in unplanned pregnancies do not need to be worrying about finances....
  • Pastors, Don’t Miss this Moment to Save Lives and Make History

    Editor's note: This piece was co-authored by Samuel Green.Pastors have helped end many of the gravest tragedies in human history by preaching countercultural truths that transform hearts and inspire action. We are once again at a critical moment in history that demands such bold leadership. Each day in America, thousands of innocent children are intentionally killed before birth. Rather than calling this a “crime,” our nation calls it a “choice.” But that may soon change. Just last month, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the most significant abortion-related case in decades: Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. That case...

    A dog and her puppies are being credited with helping to save a newborn who was abandoned in a field in India, possibly because she was a girl. The Epoch Times reports local residents in Chattisgarh, India reported finding the infant while going out into the field to work in late December. According to Chattisgarh Police, the newborn girl was naked and her umbilical cord was still attached. Local residents said the baby was surrounded by a dog and her litter of puppies, and they believe the animals kept the baby warm by snuggling up against her through the night,...

    When his girlfriend told him she was pregnant, Jean-Paul Noel-Cephise was elated. Although he was only young and the pregnancy was unplanned, he had always wanted to be a dad and felt confident they would make great parents. After all, he had a good job, was financially stable with his own home and they were madly in love. ‘I’d had a happy childhood and couldn’t wait to recreate it with my own child,’ says Jean-Paul. ‘I know some young men would’ve been horrified at the prospect of having a baby but I really wasn’t — quite the opposite.’ Sadly, though,...

    A pro-abortion think tank is decrying 2021 as “the worst year” for abortion rights in nearly 50 years as dozens of laws aimed at restricting access to abortion have passed at the state level in 2021. The Guttmacher Institute, a pro-choice research organization formerly affiliated with Planned Parenthood, released a report earlier this month titled “State Policy Trends 2021: The Worst Year for Abortion Rights in Almost Half a Century.”The report is the latest of several Guttmacher Institute publications highlighting the passage of numerous laws at the state level this year, which the organization and other pro-choice advocates characterize as...

    Knoxville’s Planned Parenthood building was engulfed in flames early Friday morning and is a total loss. Fire crews were called about 6:40 a.m. as heavy smoke was coming out of the back of the structure, Assistant Chief Brent Seymour said. There were no injuries to report. The building was being renovated and the clinic had not been used in some time. Seymour said it’s too early in the investigation, with parts of the building unsafe to enter, to be able to say what caused the fire. Representatives from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the FBI have...

    Abortion was the leading cause of death globally in 2021, with nearly 43 million unborn babies killed in the womb, according to data provided by Worldometer. As of noon on December 31, 2021, there were 42.6 million abortions performed in the course of the year, Worldometer revealed, while 8.2 million people died from cancer, 5 million from smoking, 1.7 million of HIV/AIDS, 1.3 million from traffic fatalities, and 1 million from suicide. Totaling all the deaths in the world from causes other than abortion reveals a figure of 58.7 million, meaning that abortions accounted for just over 42 percent of...

    "Be my Mommy!" the banner in the CVS window read, part of a display of surplus Baby Emma dolls. It was the fifth day of Christmas, and I noticed during Mass -- shortly before I went to the drugstore to pick up prescriptions -- that one of the petitions during the service was for those struggling to have a happy, peaceful Christmas. We prayed for the sick, the grieving, the lonely. We didn't pray for the orphans, though, I thought during Mass. I did, in my heart, but seeing the Baby Emma display reminded me to do so again. Over...

    The political atmosphere is heating up regarding next year’s election and is beginning to indicate a red wave tsunami. At the same time, the Supreme Court appears to be ready to issue a major decision regarding abortion and curtailing (or even overturning) Roe v. Wade. Enter Dr. Mehmet Oz, Professor of Surgery, Columbia University, the leading Republican candidate for the very crucial Senate seat in Pennsylvania. As a well-known celebrity, Dr. Oz brings serious credentials to the job. However, on the crucial issue of abortion, he is a typical politician speaking out of both sides of his mouth. If Oz...
  • Wis. AG's Comments on Enforcing Abortion Laws Prove Why Texas Lawmakers Had to Craft Their Law As They Did

    Last week, Wisconsin's Attorney General Josh Kaul shared during with the Associated Press that he would not enforce the state's abortion ban should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade. Whether or not he intended to, Kaul made the argument for Texas lawmakers as to why they felt the need to add in a citizen enforcement provision to the state abortion law that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, at about six weeks. Wisconsin is one of nine states that has an abortion ban from 1849 that became unenforceable once Roe legalized abortion on demand in...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | DEC 16, 2021 | Angie Leventis Lourgos
    Women can now terminate a pregnancy without leaving home by mail-ordering abortion pills, a new means of accessing abortion care that’s recently gained a footing in many states — including Illinois — as reproductive rights become increasingly under fire across large swaths of the country. The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday eased long-standing medication abortion restrictions that once required clinicians to dispense the medicine in person, a historic decision lauded by reproductive rights activists and condemned by abortion opponents. The FDA had already temporarily waived these requirements due to the unique challenges patients faced to accessing clinics and hospitals...

    LGBTQ lobby has already triumphed at the SynodThe wrestling match over a link to an American LGBTQ organisation on the Synod website - put, removed, put back - reveals just how influential the gay lobby is today at the top of the Church. It amounts to the official recognition of a group disavowed by the American bishops, condemned by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith 22 years ago, but now promoted by Pope Francis.A link is worth more than a hundred theological and magisterial documents. This is the lesson that was taught recently by the Synod on Synodality,...

    SEATTLE (AP) — The CEO of a Seattle-based affiliate of Planned Parenthood has been removed from her position after controversy following a donor’s use of a racist term in a meeting. Chris Charbonneau was ousted last week as head of Planned Parenthood Great Northwest, Hawaii, Alaska, Indiana, Kentucky, the Seattle Times reported. The organization said a donor used a racist term to refer to Black people this fall and Charbonneau repeated the word while discussing the meeting with another staffer. Charbonneau and the board have differing accounts of how she reacted to the donor’s use of the word, which the...

    In a case that hinges on enforcement rather than abortion itself, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8 to 1 on Dec. 10 that abortion providers can continue their legal challenge of the Texas Heartbeat Act, but the restrictive abortion law will remain in effect in the meantime. The court accepted the case, Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson, “to determine whether, under our precedents, certain abortion providers can pursue a pre-enforcement challenge to a recently enacted Texas statute,” the opinion of the court, delivered by Justice Neil Gorsuch, reads. “We conclude that such an action is permissible against some of the...
