    New York will erect a statue honoring the legacy of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg in her native Brooklyn, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday. “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg selflessly pursued truth and justice in a world of division, giving voice to the voiceless and uplifting those who were pushed aside by forces of hate and indifference,” Cuomo said in a statement. (snip) “As a lawyer, jurist,and professor, she redefined gender equity and civil rights and ensured America lived up to her founding ideals -- she was a monumental figure of equality, and we can all agree that she deserves...
  • Producer of Abortion Film “Silent Scream,” Dr. Don Smith, Has Died

    It is with great sadness that we must inform you that Dr. Don Smith passed away on Wednesday, January 31, 2019. He was a warm friend with great intelligence who used his gifts to glorify God and save innocent lives from abortion. We were blessed to have him help us organize and edit our first real book, Their Blood Cries Out. His keen insight, steadfast faith in God, and fierce dedication to ending the barbaric practice of abortion in our country will be deeply missed. Dr. Don, as he was known, was a scientist and research engineer when he dedicated...

    Bernard Nathanson was once a prolific abortionist. The New York OB/GYN was a co-founder of NARAL — an acronym for National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws — now simply called NARAL Pro-Choice America. NARAL was launched in the late 1960s, prior to Roe v. Wade‘s passage. Nathanson was the organization’s medical adviser. But prior to his death in 2011 at the age of 84, he worked hard to reverse the damage he did as an abortionist and leader in a movement he denounced after undergoing a dramatic pro-life and Catholic conversion. He details his history and conversion in...

    Dr. Bernard Nathanson, once the foremost abortionist in the United States and then perhaps abortion's most effective opponent, died on Tuesday at age 84. The Washington Post obituary mentioned that his 28-minute film, The Silent Scream, released in 1985, "became a sensation, widely distributed by antiabortion groups and screened at the White House by President Ronald Reagan, who urged members of Congress to see the movie and 'move quickly to end the tragedy of abortion.'"Therein lies a tale in which I participated when I met Dr. Nathanson in the White House back in 1985. At the time, I was...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Howard Dean, a practicing physician before entering politics, was under consideration by the Obama administration for the post of U.S. surgeon general, CNN reported Friday. Dean, who recently wrapped up a four-year term as Democratic Party chairman, has been a supporter of health reform, and has privately made clear that he is interested in the job, according to the cable network. CNN said two White House officials noted that, while it is too early to compile a list of candidates for surgeon general, they did not rule out Dean getting the job. "I would not dismiss it,"...
  • Milpitas teacher who showed abortion film to 8th-graders quits

    The Milpitas science teacher who showed eighth-graders a graphic anti-abortion video remains on paid leave but has resigned from teaching at Russell Middle School effective June 30. It is not clear whether Randy Yang, a first-year teacher, will return to the classroom this semester. Superintendent Karl Black, citing confidentiality rules, refused to comment. In a closed session, the Milpitas Unified School District board accepted Yang's resignation Feb. 12, Black said. On Jan. 23, Yang showed clips of the controversial film "The Silent Scream," which depicts a fetus being aborted. The film was not part of the curriculum. The next day...
  • Study Finds 29-Week Fetuses Probably Feel No Pain and Need No Abortion Anesthesia

    Taking on one of the most highly charged questions in the abortion debate, a team of doctors has concluded that fetuses probably cannot feel pain in the first six months of gestation and therefore do not need anesthesia during abortions. Their report, being published today in The Journal of the American Medical Association, is based on a review of several hundred scientific papers, and it says that nerve connections in the brain are unlikely to have developed enough for the fetus to feel pain before 29 weeks. The finding poses a direct challenge to proposed federal and state laws that...

    A review of medical evidence has found that fetuses likely don't feel pain until the final months of pregnancy, a powerful challenge to abortion opponents who hope that discussions about fetal pain will make women think twice about ending pregnancies. Critics angrily disputed the findings and claimed the report is biased. "They have literally stuck their hands into a hornet's nest," said Dr. Kanwaljeet Anand, a fetal pain (search) researcher at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, who believes fetuses as young as 20 weeks old feel pain. "This is going to inflame a lot of scientists who are...

    Summary An abortion-rights group is running an attack ad accusing Supreme Court nominee John Roberts of filing legal papers “supporting . . . a convicted clinic bomber” and of having an ideology that “leads him to excuse violence against other Americans” It shows images of a bombed clinic in Birmingham , Alabama . The ad is false. And the ad misleads when it says Roberts supported a clinic bomber. It is true that Roberts sided with the bomber and many other defendants in a civil case, but the case didn't deal with bombing at all. Roberts argued that abortion clinics...

  • Hillary Clinton on Abortion [Hillary rabid fan of NARAL]

    Hillary Clinton on Abortion Must safeguard constitutional rights, including choice Q: What kind of justice to the Supreme Court would you support? A: I think the fate of the Supreme Court hangs in the balance. If we take Gov. Bush at his word, his two favorite Justices are Scalia and Thomas, both of whom are committed to overturning Roe v. Wade, ending a woman’s right to choose. I could not go along with that. In the Senate, I will be looking very carefully at the constitutional views [indicating] as to what that nominee believes about basic, fundamental, constitutional rights. Source:...

    My position on abortion has been, as politicians put it, evolving. I was once pro-choice and a contributor to Naral. Now I'm pro-choice but anti-Naral. The group has a genius for alienating potential allies, as demonstrated by the television commercial it introduced this week and then hastily withdrew after a barrage of criticism. The ad, which featured footage of a bombed abortion clinic and a victim in a wheelchair, accused Judge John Roberts Jr. of siding with clinic bombers and having an ideology that would "excuse" their attacks. What Mr. Roberts actually did, on behalf of the administration of the...

    The March, in three words: "viciously, mercilessly abusive." The amount of verbal aggression and abuse hurled at me personally, by women and men, of all ages, for carrying the I REGRET MY ABORTION sign, well, I thought that from all the nastiness and name-calling I've withstood recently on ampersand and calpundit's blogs, that I was ready for it. I wasn't. Not even close. I consider myself fairly far along on the "healing" and "public-appearances" scales. We stood, all 500 of us in the Silent No More Awareness groups, in total silence as planned, for over five hours, not replying or...
