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...

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...

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...

An Unintentional Pro-Life Message

Many media commentators are warning readers about a new Ohio bill because it could prevent women from obtaining abortions before they know they're pregnant. But in the process of doing so, they're making a pro-life message go viral: Abortion stops a beating heart. The Ohio Senate made national headlines for approving abortion legislation, known as the "heartbeat bill" or H.B. 258, which would ban the abortion of unborn babies with a detectable heartbeat. Republican Gov. John Kasich has promised to veto the bill. Read more...

According to the most recent survey, as many Americans identify as "pro-life" (48 percent) as "pro-choice" (48 percent).

Even more importantly, more Americans now believe that abortion is morally wrong (48 percent) than believe it's morally acceptable (43 percent). Read more...

Banning Abortion Will Save Millions

Abortion presupposes a lack of responsibility and moral agency. It is precisely a means to escape from the consequences of one’s choices: to be able to enjoy sexual intercourse without having to care for any children that result. It demands the power to destroy developing life that one’s own choices created, meaning the power to escape moral responsibility. Read more...

Abuse of Women: Coerced Abortions

Although some within the abortion industry acknowledge the problem of coerced abortion, abortion supporters downplay the scope of the problem by focusing almost exclusively on women who face pressure not to abort. Abortion proponents are known to allude to force and coercion in the context of abortion restrictions and their effects. Activists dressed as characters from The Handmaid's Tale have recently taken to protesting legislative hearings on abortion restrictions; they claim that pro-life laws are no different from the forced breeding program described in Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel.

Abortion: Two Americas Devided by Sex Ed

It makes sense in a state where people have been educated to embrace sex education (aka "have sex!"), birth control (which often fails), and reproductive rights (abortion, everyone!), these kids would later turn into adults who vote for politicians who pass legislation that represents some of the most radically pro-choice bills in the country. Oregon feels like they need abortions because the teenagers, and grown ups, keep getting pregnant "unintentionally." It's not a reactionary phase or even a political move: It's been ingrained since childhood via education. Read more...

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.

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...

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.

After Komen's decision to end the grants became public, Planned Parenthood raised about $3 million in pledges from more than 10,000 donors, Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood's president, said in a call with reporters. Komen announced its reversal in a statement today with an apology "to the American public" from Chief Executive Officer Nancy Brinker. Read more...

AMA Claims Ultrasound Law 'Dangerous'

Texas' new abortion sonogram law requires that woman receive a sonogram at least 24 hours before an abortion and that the doctor plays the sound of the baby's heartbeat for the mother and gives her the option to view the ultrasound. Seems easy enough, but abortionists are furious, stating that the law will mean women will have to wait longer for their abortion, schedule two trips to the clinic instead of one, and force clinics to have the high-demand abortionist on hand to do the sonogram.

Charity Halts Grants to Planned Parenthood

The nation's leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, is halting its partnerships with Planned Parenthood affiliates — creating a bitter rift, linked to the abortion debate, between two iconic organizations that have assisted millions of women. The change will mean a cutoff of hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants, mainly for breast exams. Planned Parenthood says the move results from Komen bowing to pressure from pro-life activists. Komen says the key reason is that Planned Parenthood is under investigation in Congress. Read more...

Graphic Pro-Life Ads Set for Super Bowl?

Racy ads are nothing new for Super Bowl fans, but those tuning into the game this year may need to prepare themselves and their families for a graphic anti-abortion ad sponsored by a presidential candidate. Pro-life candidate Randall Terry is a life-long Republican who has placed himself on the Democratic ticket against President Barack Obama to ensure he could run the ads. Terry said the images are horrific and will upset people, and these images should show people that abortion shouldn’t be legal. Read more...

Study Claiming Abortion Safer Than Birth Flawed

Hundreds of news articles appeared this week claiming, once again, that the best medical evidence shows that abortion is safer than childbirth. The rash of articles were all tied to a blatant piece of propaganda published in Obstetrics and Gynecologyby Dr. David Grimes, an abortion provider and chief propagandist for “medical proof” of abortion’s safety. The new study repeats the same discredited practice of simply comparing nationally reported maternal mortality rates with Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported deaths associated with abortion. Sounds reasonable, until you learn that there is no accurate or formal mechanism for reporting abortion-related deaths. Read more...

Poll: 51% of Canadians Support Abortion

A new poll that highlights the complexity of Canadians’ views on abortion finds only 51% of Canadians favour any limitations at all on the procedure – even as 60% favour a law restricting gender-based abortion. The Angus Reid Opinion Poll of 1,001 online participants across the country was released Thursday. In particular, when female respondents were asked if they favoured any abortion restrictions, 53% said yes. Then asked if there should be laws governing whether women could abort a fetus based “solely on the gender,” 66% of women agreed. Read more...
