According to the AUL documentation, government inspectors found everything from blood on tables and chairs to a sponge being used repeatedly for a week – without being cleaned.

Judge Overturns Texas Dismemberment Ban

A federal judge has struck down a Texas law that bans second-trimester dismemberment abortions, those in which an unborn baby is "torn limb from limb" and then extracted from the uterus. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel ruled that banning dismemberment abortion – a form of "D&E" (dilation and evacuation) abortion – places an "undue burden" upon women. "The State's valid interest in promoting respect for the life of the unborn, although legitimate, is not sufficient to justify such a substantial obstacle to the constitutionally protected right of a woman to terminate a pregnancy before fetal viability," the judge wrote.

Did the Bishops' Vote Disrespect the Pope?

Far from being some sort of act of disrespect to the pope, a vote for Archbishop Naumann was a vote to affirm the bishops' broad-gauged pro-life position, which has developed "synodally" over time, while privileging several of the life issues — abortion, to be sure, and, increasingly, euthanasia — rather than muting those issues for the sake of others.

Think Abortion Is OK for Rape?

I did not deserve the death penalty for the crime of my biological father. My own birthmother had tried to kill me at two illegal abortions, and was pro-choice when we met 29 years ago, but today, we are thankful we were both protected by law from the horror of abortion. She said back then, the only option she was given was to abort me. She said that there were no pro-life pregnancy resource centers at the time, and no one gave her any other help or hope.

Ministerettes 'Bless' Abortion Center

As abortion business Whole Women's Health fights a pro-life law in Texas, area women ministers expressed their support by collectively blessing the pregnancy termination provider. Last week, clergy sang "Alleluia!" as they prayed for the business and its staff. Organizer Kentina Washington-Leapheart of the Religious Institute said the purpose of the media event was to promote the idea that abortion is an acceptable Christian thing to do. "We're trying say (the pro-life) narrative isn't the only narrative related to faith," she explained. Read more...

Church's Pro-Life Display Vandalized

Volunteers at Faith Bible Church placed about 600 white crosses in the church's lawn earlier this month next to a sign that reads "Pray to end abortion." On Tuesday night, the Rev. Gene Harris, the church's pastor, returned from dinner to find the crosses broken and pulled from the ground, he said. "They were carefully and reverently placed, and it's sad that someone would desecrate the cross of Christ," Harris said. "We're not sure if someone specifically wanted to target the pro-life message or if it was just a random act of vandalism." Read more...

Pro-life advocates who have opposed the law, including The National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), praised the Supreme Court for deciding to hear what it called a "critical free speech case."

Second-Trimester Abortion a 'Brutal Procedure'

Attorneys for the state of Texas defended a law restricting the most common second-trimester abortion procedure with testimony from a doctor who described it as a "brutal procedure in which a living human being is torn to pieces." Earlier this year the Republican-led Legislature passed Senate Bill 8, a set of comprehensive abortion regulations that banned dilation and evacuation — a medical procedure used to remove a fetus using surgical tools — unless the fetus is deceased. It is the most common method used to perform an abortion in the second trimester. Read more...

U.S. House Considers 'Heartbeat Protection Act'

A House committee considered a bill that would make it illegal for doctors to perform abortions after a heartbeat is detected. The "Heartbeat Protection Act," authored by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), would make it a crime for a doctor to perform an abortion if the fetus has a "detectable" heart beat. King acknowledged that such a bill, if signed into law, would face legal challenges, possibly going all the way to the Supreme Court. Read more...

Ottawa Students Ban Pro-Life Clubs

A pro-life student group at the University of Ottawa has been censored and stripped of club status because their mandate promotes human rights for all human beings. In a follow-up recent decision, the Student Union on November 5th has now voted to have the Student Union be a "pro-choice" entity only supporting groups that support legalized abortion. The section reads that Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO) will "affirms a person's right to choose.
