Norma 'Jane Roe' McCorvey Dead at Age 69

Norma McCorvey, who was the Jane Roe of the infamous Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court case legalizing virtually unlimited abortions, passed away today. McCorvey never had an abortion and eventually became pro-life and dedicated her life to overturning the horrible Supreme Court decision that bared her pseudonym. Read more...

A Chance to Defeat More Pro-Death Senators

In 2018, there are many opportunities to replace a pro-abortion United States Senator with a pro-life Senator. Next year Democrats are defending 25 seats, while Republicans are defending only eight. Generally speaking, the best pickup opportunities are in states that voted for pro-life President Donald Trump in 2016, but which have pro-abortion Democratic senators. Read more...

French Law Targets All Pro-Life Websites

The French National Assembly has adopted legislation to make what it calls “spreading misleading information” about abortion punishable with up to a two-year prison sentence and a fine. The law specifically targets “electronic” and “online” means of spreading information with the intention of dissuading women from ending their pregnancy, but its wording is not restrictive. By and large, any person or group aiming to call public attention to the dangers and risks of abortion will be potentially at risk of prosecution. Read more...

Pregnancy Centers May Be Forced to Promote Abortion

House Bill 663 and its companion Senate Bill 501 are making their way through the state legislature, with the House Committee on Health voting 4-3 on Tuesday to recommend passage of the bill with amendments. According to section 321-A of the House version, a "limited service pregnancy center" will have to provide to its clientele the following written notice: "Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services including all FDA-approved methods of contraception, prenatal care, and abortion for eligible women. To determine whether you qualify, contact the appropriate Med-QUEST division eligibility office." Read more...

Pro-Life Center Supports Kansas Ban

The University of St. Thomas Prolife Center filed an amicus curiae brief this week with the Kansas Supreme Court defending a ban on “live dismemberment” abortion during the second trimester of pregnancy, which opponents have argued is a state constitutional right. The heart of the controversy is whether a law that prohibits “live dismemberment,” a particular type of “dilation and evacuation” abortion, is constitutional under the Kansas Bill of Rights. The law was adopted last April, but the plaintiffs—a women’s clinic and the physicians who own it—claim the Kansas Constitution must be read to contain a state constitutional right to abortion that is at least as expansive as the right created by the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade. Read more...

Does Planned Parenthood Have Abortion Quotas?

Planned Parenthood clinics had monthly quotas for abortions or abortion referrals, according to two former clinic workers in a new Live Action investigative video. “I trained my staff the way that I was trained, which was to really encourage women to choose abortion; to have it at Planned Parenthood, because it counts towards our goal,” Sue Thayer, a former Planned Parenthood manager at Storm Lake, Iowa, revealed in an interview with the pro-life group Live Action. “We would try to get the appointment scheduled for abortion before they left our clinic.” Read more...

Pro-Life Leaders Wary of Obamacare Replacement

Dozens of pro-life leaders sent a letter to Congress Thursday afternoon urging Republican senators and representatives to honor their commitment to prohibit taxpayer-funding of elective abortion coverage under any health-care bill to replace Obamacare. "Currently, any bill funding healthcare must carry restrictions on abortion funding or it will end up funding the brutal practice of abortion," the letter states. "That is why the Republican platform rightly calls for a 'permanent ban on federal funding and subsidies for abortion and healthcare plans that include abortion.' The platform continues stating, 'We will not fund or subsidize healthcare that includes abortion coverage.' President Trump also pledged his opposition to taxpayer funding for abortion in his 2016 letter to Pro-life Leaders." Read more...

Live Action Backs De-Fudning Effort

Pro-life advocacy group Live Action, joined with members of Congress, called for the ending of taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider. "I hope that the sands of time blow over that Capitol dome before we ever give one more dime of taxpayer dollars to this insidious, deceptive, and evil enterprise," said Rep. Trent Franks. The Arizona Republican likened pro-Planned Parenthood talking points to "fake news" and "alternative facts." Read more...

A Brief History of the 'Pro-Life' Label

It was a marketing masterstroke: the word "life" has been linked to the opposition of abortion since, and being "pro-life" has come to mean specifically opposing abortion—and not, for instance, opposing war or the death penalty. The success of the label is largely due to its ability to frame the issue not as standing against something (a woman's choice) but in favor of it (life). Read more...

The Pro-Life Imperative

In 1973, after the Supreme Court issued its Roe v. Wade decision, the New York Times expressed confidence that "the Court's verdict on abortions provides a sound foundation for final and reasonable resolution" to a debate that has "divided America too long." The Times could not have been more mistaken. Not only did the abortion debate dramatically increase after Roe, it remains as lively as ever—forty-five years on—as witnessed by Friday's massive and inspiring March for Life. Read more...

Most Americans Want Some Abortion Restrictions

A majority of Americans are in favor of stopping taxpayer funding of abortions and banning most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, according to a new Marist poll commissioned by the Knights of Columbus. "There is a consensus in America in favor of significant abortion restrictions, and this common ground exists across party lines, and even among significant numbers of those who are pro-choice," Carl A. Anderson, CEO of the Catholic organization Knights of Columbus, said in a statement. Read more...

How Gosnell's House of Horrors Made Me Pro-Life

I also know that in a proper, legal abortion, babies are poisoned in their mother's womb by injecting a needle filled with potassium chloride into the baby's heart. Then the baby is suctioned out in pieces. If the baby is bigger, forceps are used to pull it out in pieces—an arm, a leg, the head often torn from the torso. If the head is too big to pull out, the abortionist makes a hole in the base of the skull and the brain is sucked out to collapse the skull so the head can come easily. That's how it's done when it's done well. Read more...

Planned Parenthood: 'We Don't Offer Prenatal Care'

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is on record stating her business is essential to American women because of the prenatal care it offers. She is emphasizing that point as a move develops in Congress to withhold the half-a-billion taxpayer dollars that each year goes to the abortion-industry behemoth. The funding must continue, Richards said, because prenatal care is among "the kinds of services that folks depend on Planned Parenthood for." The problem? Planned Parenthood "offers abortions, so they don't offer prenatal care," according to a Tempe, Arizona, spokeswoman for the business. That's right. The service Planned Parenthood says is so important, it doesn't provide. Read more...

Commentary: Congress Should Defund Planned Parenthood

No American should be forced to fund the abortion industry. Yet, that's exactly what's happening and it must end. It's time for Congress to defund Planned Parenthood. First, let's dispense with the absurd notion that Planned Parenthood is somehow not in the abortion business. Fact checkers have hammered this fallacious claim for what it is - a ludicrous lie. As a lawyer I deal in evidence, so let's look at the facts. Planned Parenthood provides more than 323,000 abortions each year - making it the largest abortion provider in America. Read more...

Arkansas House Favors Limiting Abortion

A day after thousands gathered for an abortion protest at the state Capitol, House lawmakers voted overwhelmingly to restrict a procedure used to end hundreds of pregnancies a year in Arkansas. There was no debate on the floor after state Rep. Andy Mayberry, R-Hensley, presented House Bill 1032 to restrict dilation and evacuation abortions, and the legislation was passed 78-10. The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration. The procedure that would be banned by the bill is the most commonly used method of abortion for women in their second trimester, according to the Arkansas Department of Health. Read more...

'Heartbeat' Bill Introduced in U.S. Congress

Iowa Rep. Steve King introduced a bill to prohibit abortions when a pre-born baby's heartbeat can be detected. Pre-born babies' hearts begin to beat as early as 21 days after fertilization. The Heartbeat Protection Act of 2017 (H.R. 490) mandates that abortionists check for a fetal heartbeat before committing abortions. They may not commit an abortion if a fetal heartbeat is detected. The only exception to this law would be if a mother's life was in danger. The bill specifies that this does not include "psychological or emotional conditions." Read more...

Abortion: More Evil Than Slavery

Today, adamant opponents of racism will argue that it's better to kill unwanted babies than to bring them into a world that does not care for them. Slaveholders argued that it was better to subject blacks to slavery than to leave them on their own in a world in which they could not properly care for themselves. The pro-abortionists today will be quick to say that the slaveholders' contention is, by and large, untrue. But they are blind to the fact that, by and large, human experience suggests that their present contention (that the world will not care for babies if they are not aborted) is equally questionable.

Britain Baby Killer Cathy Warwick to Retire

Cathy Warwick, the chief executive of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM), will step down from the role and retire at the end of August 2017, it has been announced. Prof Warwick is also Chairman of Trustees for the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), and came under fire when she signed the RCM up to their "We Trust Women Campaign", which advocates for full decriminalisation of abortion on demand up to birth. This means that the RCM, which is Britain's biggest maternity union -representing nearly 30,000 midwives and health workers – is calling for women to be allowed to terminate an unborn child at any stage of pregnancy, for any reason, with no criminal sanctions.

Sessions Pledges to 'Respect' Roe v. Wade

Attorney General-designate Sen. Jeff Sessions pledged during his confirmation hearing Tuesday to "respect" Roe v. Wade as attorney general, despite the fact that he disagrees with the ruling. The Alabama Republican tapped by President-elect Donald Trump to lead the Justice Department was quizzed by several of his Senate colleagues about his position on abortion. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) asked Sessions about his stance on enforcing Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, even though he is opposed to abortion. Sessions, who once described Roe as "one of the worst, colossally erroneous Supreme Court decisions of all time," said the ruling is nonetheless the law of the land and would be enforced.

Kentucky Attorney General Shirks Duties

Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear said he will fight a legal challenge to a new Kentucky law mandating ultrasounds for women seeking abortions — even though he believes such a defense comes with "risks and potential costs." But Beshear said he will not attempt to defend another new state law banning abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy — should it also be challenged — saying it is "clearly unconstitutional." The decision of Beshear, a Democrat, drew rebukes from Republicans, who control both the House and Senate and had fast-tracked the abortion bills as priority measures during the first week of this year's legislative session.

Inmate Sues Sheriff For Denying Abortion

A former inmate has filed a law suit against the Maury County Sheriff in federal court, claiming he denied her right to an abortion because the pregnancy was not a threat to the inmate's health or the result of rape or incest. "We did not have a specific policy," said Maury County Sheriff Bucky Rowland. "Tennessee Corrections does not have a specific policy. It's really a gray area." Kei'Choura Cathey, 29, first discovered she was pregnant in August, 2015, while awaiting trial. She was charged with facilitation and conspiracy to commit felony murder. Read more...
