Nebraska OKs Baby Killer License Plate

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland says it has submitted enough applications to ensure its own license plates will be available as an alternative to Nebraska drivers once the state's "Choose Life" plates go on sale in January. The Planned Parenthood plates, which read "My Body, My Choice," will cost $70. Motorists should be able to order them in the next few days, Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles Director Rhonda Lamm said. In a news release, Planned Parenthood said it submitted 263 applications for the plate, surpassing the state's requirement of 250 to begin printing an organizational plate. Read more...

Obamacare and Tax-Funded Abortions

Pro-life activists are mobilizing against an emerging congressional compromise on Obamacare insurance subsidies that they contend could allow hundreds of thousands of taxpayer-funded abortions. At issue is a program under the Affordable Care Act meant to help customers with incomes below 250 percent of the poverty line pay deductibles and other out-of-pocket health care expenses. It has been in legal limbo since a federal judge ruled last year that Congress never authorized the so-called cost-sharing reduction payments. Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) have been working on legislation to codify those payments. Read more...

49 Abortion Clinics Closed in 2017

In a year that abortion businesses attempted to expand in America, the actual number of abortion facilities decreased by 27 clinics over 2016 totals. Closures far outpaced newly opened abortion facilities in 2017. In all, 49 abortion facilities — 35 surgical and 14 medication only clinics — closed or halted abortion services. Only eight new surgical abortion facilities were opened, along with eleven new medication abortion facilities. Read more...

DOJ to Investigate Planned Parenthood

The Justice Department has launched a federal investigation into Planned Parenthood's practices and the sale of fetal tissue. Justice Department Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen Boyd formally requested unredacted documents from the Senate Judiciary Committee, the same panel that led the congressional probe into the women's health organization. "The Department of Justice appreciates the offer of assistance in obtaining these materials, and would like to request the Committee provide unredacted copies of records contained in the report, in order to further the Department's ability to conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment of that report based on the full range of information available," Boyd wrote.

Baby Killer Fined $600 for 3 Felonies

The "trunk abortionist" who kept aborted babies and stolen prescriptions in his car and admitted to three counts of larceny got off with only a $600 fine. Michael Arthur Roth has long been on the radar of Operation Rescue, a group that monitors the abortion industry, for his sketchy methods, including committing at-home abortions. Roth has been a defendant in several medical malpractice suits for botched abortions. "It is unfortunate that this man, who committed three felonies, got a mere slap on the wrist," Operation Rescue's Senior Vice President Cheryl Sullenger told reporters. Read more...

Hartford Ordinance Attacks CPCs

A proposed new city ordinance would require crisis pregnancy centers, which are known as CPCs, to disclose the medical credentials of their staff. The ordinance, which is on the council's agenda for Monday night, also would prohibit false or misleading advertising. Allegations raised by Hartford GYN staff — which prompted Hartford's mayor last month to propose an ordinance cracking down on crisis pregnancy centers — portray the center as "willfully deceptive, masquerading as a reproductive health clinic while dispensing mostly faith-based, non-medical advice."

Illinois Lawsuit Attacks Abortion Funding

A taxpayer lawsuit against the state of Illinois is challenging a new law that uses public funds for abortion. Illinois Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner broke his promises to pro-lifers when he signed into law at the end of September legislation (House Bill 40) to expand taxpayer-subsidized abortions. The complaint was made by the Thomas More Society (TMS) on behalf of Illinois taxpayers who do not want their hard earned money to be used to fund as many as 30,000 abortions a year. Read more...

Illinois Hearing Set December 28

Lawyers for pro-life groups and the state of Illinois will be in court Dec. 28 arguing whether a lawsuit that would block public funding of abortions should be dismissed. Pro-life groups also may seek to stop the state from spending any money on abortions until the lawsuit is resolved. A controversial state law that provides funding for abortion services for women covered by Medicaid and state employee health insurance is set to go into effect Jan. 1. Read more...

Black Pro-Lifers: 'Quit Targeting Our Women'

The African-American community is taking a stand against the abortion industry’s Black Genocide, and one Christian denomination is leading the charge. The Church of God in Christ (COGIC) is the largest African-American Christian denomination in the United States. Recognizing that abortion is pervasive and specifically targeting their community, the church stepped up to promote adoption among its churches and educate members about abortion and the pro-life cause.

Cold Texas 'Justice' for the Unborn

Killing these children prior to dismemberment is apparently too merciful for courts that protect "reproductive rights" at any cost and for the abortion-rights advocates who grow more zealous by the day. Women's rights demand, we are told, the unlimited ability to dismember living, unborn children between 13 and 24 weeks' gestation. And in Texas, despite legislators' efforts to prevent the practice, those children will continue to be dismembered alive, as the result of a recent decision by federal judge Lee Yeakel. Read more...

Charlotte Clinic Protest Grows

The pro-life group Love Life Charlotte led the prayer walk around A Preferred Women's Health, as it does weekly, but Saturday's walk marked the group's 40th week of marching at the clinic this year — a number they noted because a pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks on average. Read more...

John Kasich took office, state health inspectors have reported 17 times as many violations a year in Ohio abortion clinics as during the tenure of his predecessor, Democrat Ted Strickland. A wider range of violations, including "safety and sanitation" and "adverse events," have been found in the almost-seven years that Kasich has served. Read more...

Students Sue University for Blocking Protest

Miami University students filed a lawsuit against their school's president, trustees and other administrators over a "pro-life" protest. The Students for Life group says the university officials effectively shut down their "cemetery of innocents" display at the Hamilton campus. The federal lawsuit claims the university violated the students' free speech rights. University officials refused to approve the display unless the students agreed to post warning signs around campus with a "trigger warning" that urged people not to view it. Read more...

Kentucky's Last Abortion Mill to Close?

Simply put, the clinics cannot keep up with the costs of the ever-increasing standards. Not to mention, according to Rachel K. Jones, principal research scientist at the Guttmacher Institute, doctors willing to provide such services are becoming harder and harder to find. In recent years, the number of facilities has declined: in 1996, 452 clinics were open in the United States. Nine years later, in 2005, surveys revealed that the number had dropped to 381. Fast forward to 2014 and only 272 remained throughout the country. Read more...

Lawsuit Targets Tax-Funded Abortions

More than a dozen groups and lawmakers who oppose abortion have filed a lawsuit challenging a new law allowing state employee health insurance and Medicaid to cover abortion services. The Thomas More Society filed the action Thursday in Sangamon County Circuit Court. It says including abortion among procedures covered by state employee health insurance and Medicaid beginning Jan. 1 is illegal. Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner signed the measure Sept. 28. It infuriated conservatives who allege he promised to veto it. Read more...
