Roberts Joins Libs in Pro-Abortion Ruling

The U.S. Supreme Court blocked Louisiana from enforcing a law that women's groups said would leave only a single doctor legally allowed to perform abortions in the state. By a 5-4 vote, the court said the restrictions must remain on hold while challengers appeal a lower court decision in favor of the law. Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the court's liberal members. It was the Supreme Court's first significant action on the hot-button issue of abortion since Donald Trump's nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, replaced Anthony Kennedy, who generally voted with the court's liberals to uphold abortion rights.

'Silence From Congressional Democrats Is Shameful'

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO) have announced the re-introduction of the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The legislation was created to ensure any infant who survives an abortion attempt receives the same protection of law as any other newborn baby. The bill enforces care for the infants and institutes penalties for doctors who allow infants to die or who intentionally kill a newborn. Read more...

CNN Article Smears 'Anti-Abortion Extremists'

CNN Health published an article titled "Before judging 'late-term abortion,' understand what it means, doctors say." This article hardly qualifies as balanced, if for no other reason than the doctors author Jessica Ravitz chose to interview. One doctor interviewed by Ravitz demonized opponents of late-term abortion as "anti-abortion extremists." Read more...

New York Law: 'No Different Than Infanticide'

Pro-life leaders and commentators are responding with disgust, sorrow, and resolve to the New York legislature's votes to enshrine a "fundamental right" to abortion in state law and strip protections from preborn babies until birth. The state Senate voted 38-24 and the state Assembly 92-47 in favor of the so-called "Reproductive Health Act," a bill that has repeatedly cleared the Assembly in years past but been blocked by the formerly-Republican Senate. Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who signed the bill, called it a "historic victory for New Yorkers and our progressive values" and ordered the One World Trade Center spire to be lit in pink to mark the occasion.

New York State 'Celebrates' Death

Woe to us because even if New York hadn't passed the Reproductive Health Act, babies are still being killed. Woe to us because even as we post on the horrendous nature of this law—which we should—we have not yet oriented our lives such that our theology of pro-life compels us to greater involvement—speaking up for the unborn, valuing and promoting adoption, caring for children and their often-unwed mothers.

California Discriminated Against Pregnancy Centers

California violated federal conscience law in enforcing its so-called Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency (FACT) Act against pro-life pregnancy centers, the Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced. Last summer the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Reproductive FACT Act, which forced crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) to provide written information advertising how to obtain abortions in the state at taxpayer expense, and required centers without medical licenses to post disclaimers that they do not offer medical services.

Google 'Blacklisted' Pro-Life Videos

Internet giant Google makes a common practice of manipulating search results to obscure YouTube searches for topics of interest to conservatives, according to leaked materials obtained by the conservative website Breitbart, and recently added pro-life searches to an internal "blacklist" in response to left-wing pressure. OBreitbart reported that it was leaked a partial list of terms in a "blacklist" file for "controversial YouTube queries," as well as an internal Google discussion thread on the subject. "We have tons of white- and blacklists that humans manually curate. Hopefully this isn't surprising or particularly controversial," a Google site reliability engineer said in the chat. Read more...

Lawsuit Hopes to Block Abortion Funding

Attorneys from the Thomas More Society are appealing to the Illinois Supreme Court to stop a state law requiring taxpayer funding of abortions for Medicaid recipients. According to the filing on behalf of hundreds of thousands of Illinois taxpayers, the funding for the law violates the state constitution's balanced budget requirement. In September 2018, an appellate court upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit against the funding for the law, previously known as "House Bill 40." Read more...

Ohio Bans Dismemberment Abortions

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed into law a measure that bans dismemberment abortions in the state. The common second trimester abortion procedure – also known as dilation and evacuation (D&E) – involves dilating the mother's cervix and then removing the baby's limbs using surgical instruments prior to extracting his or her remains from the uterus. Abortionists who perform dismemberment abortions in defiance of the law could face fourth-degree felony charges, including a jail sentence and fines. Read more...

Brett Kavanaugh Is Not the Pro-Life Savior

Given the announcement from the high court that they would decline a case concerning government funding of Planned Parenthood, conservatives shouldn't hold their breath for a Kavanaugh-led charge against the "right" to end unborn life. If they do, it's to their continued detriment. Along with Chief Justice John Roberts, Kavanaugh sided with the left-leaning justices, much to Republicans' correctly placed dismay. Read more...
