Abortion accuracy - In a 2004 October surprise, just before President George W. Bush’s re-election, the religious left publication Sojourners published figures indicating that the number of abortions in the U.S. had gone up 25 percent during President Bush’s first term in office. That increase was shouted from the media rooftops as uncontested fact; even recently in two high-profile interviews last week –– Howard Dean on NBC’s Meet the Press with Tim Russert and Hillary Clinton on CNN’s Inside Politics with Judy Woodruff.

Then, the Left’s Planned Parenthood think tank, the Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), released a comprehensive study of 43 states indicating that both the number and the rate of abortions were down by around 1 percent in 2001 and again in 2002.

Abortions rising under Bush? NOT TRUE! How that false claim came to be - and lives on - Politicians from Hillary Clinton and John Kerry to Howard Dean have recently contended that abortions have increased since George W. Bush took office in 2001. This claim is false.

Red China: Ultrasounds Used to Kill Girls - In China, because of the Communist government’s brutal 25-year one child policy, and since boys are considered more valuable than girls—as they carry on the family name and are expected to care for aging parents—ultrasound machines are employed to determine the sex of the baby.

Abortion docs reveal partial-birth procedure - Court hears "gruesome' testimony in challenge to federal ban - The testimony at three trials – in California, Nebraska and New York – includes descriptions of the dismemberment and decapitation of unborn children moments before live birth, says the Washington, D.C.-based American Center for Law and Justice.

A physician testified in the San Francisco trial – where Planned Parenthood is challenging the ban – he often must separate the skull of the unborn child from its body during the abortion in order to remove the child from the woman's body.

An abortion provider in the New York City trial testified an unborn child often is dismembered during the procedure and does not immediately die after limbs are pulled off.

The baby remains alive until the head is crushed, he testified in a case in which the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Abortion Federation are challenging the Diagram of Partial Birth Abortion Procedureban. more>

Abortionists Reveal Inhumanity in Testimony on Partial-Birth Abortion - This excerpt is from an examination by Judge Richard Casey of the Southern District of New York of Dr. Timothy Johnson on March 31, 2004.

Q. Did you make any observation of the way the physician performing that intact D&E effected the incision into the skull?
A. In the situations that I have observed, they either-actually, the procedures that I have observed they all used a crushing instrument to deliver the head, and they did it under direct vision.

THE COURT: Can you explain to me what that means.
THE WITNESS: What they did was they delivered the fetus intact until the head was still trapped behind the cervix, and then they reached up and crushed the head in order to deliver it through the cervix.

THE COURT: What did they utilize to crush the head?
THE WITNESS: An instrument, a fair, a large pair of forceps that have a round serrated edge at the end of it, so that they were able to bring them together and crush the head between the ends of the instrument.

THE COURT: Like the cracker they use to crack a lobster shell, serrated edge?
THE WITNESS: No.

THE COURT: Describe it for me.
THE WITNESS: It would be like the end of tongs that are combined that you use to pick up salad. So they would be articulated in the center and you could move one end, and During fetal surgery, the baby's hand grasps the surgeon's finger. This is not an abortion - this is surgery to save a baby with a congenital defect.there would be a branch at the center, and the instruments are thick enough and heavy enough that you can actually grasp and crush with those instruments as if you were picking up salad or picking up anything with-

THE COURT: Except here you are crushing the head of a baby.
THE WITNESS: Correct.

THE COURT: If you are all finished let me just ask you a couple questions, Dr. Johnson. I heard you talk a lot today about dismemberment D&E procedure, second trimester, does the fetus feel pain?
THE WITNESS: I guess I-

Baby Parts for Sale - A batch of eyes by UPS – 30 livers by FedEx - After fighting abortion for 30 years I thought I had seen and heard it all, but not so. Here is a new development, a coordinated high-tech industry functioning for the specific purpose of obtaining and selling high-quality fetal organs for research.

The other method of late-term abortion, D&E (Dilatation and Evacuation), involves reaching up into the uterus and dismembering the live baby. This delivers pieces of macerated organs that are usually unsuitable for fetal research, transplantation etc. This may be the main reason for their vehement defense of the practice of Partial-Birth abortion.

The story was broken recently by Life Dynamics under the guidance of its director, Mark Crutcher. A lady came to him with a story, which he has verified. The name of the informant cannot be revealed, as she is still involved in the work that she has exposed. Her story is dramatically recorded in a video just released by Life Dynamics. In it, this woman under the pseudonym, Kelly, tells her story. Her back is to the camera and her voice is electronically altered to prevent her identification. She worked for “an outside source, hired with a team to go in [to late term abortion clinics] to dissect and procure fetal tissue for high-quality sales.” Read on as Kelly describes her macabre profession. “What we did was to have a contract with an abortion clinic that would allow us to go there on certain days. We would get a generated list each day to tell us what tissue researchers, pharmaceutical companies and universities were looking for. Then we would examine the patient charts. We would screen out the ones we didn't want. more>

Biohazard bags & buckets - Although it was only first acknowledged publicly in 1999, the practice of live-birth abortion is now known to be widespread. The nurse I spoke with by phone worked at a late term abortion clinic chain on Florida's west coast. She described wanton barbarism, on par with Nazi Germany's Dr. Mengele:

I saw a lot of babies born alive ... Dr. X said that was a side effect of a medication. They always said to leave the baby alone, and they would stop breathing ... Two hours was the longest I saw a baby live ... One girl was 26-27 weeks ...

They put the babies in red biohazard bags when they were still moving ... tied the bag up ... put them in a biohazard box. The biohazard medical service would pick boxes up Monday and Thursday.

There was one incident where the woman had the baby while she was waiting at the door for the clinic to open. She got there at 7 a.m. The clinic opened at 8 a.m. She said the baby was born alive. The baby was now dead, and she was holding the baby in a bag. She was bleeding.

I know this nurse – Bridget. She was working there when the new doctor held a baby under water in a bucket when she told him the baby was alive. That baby was between 25-26 weeks. Bridget left two months ago because of that.

I left because I got tired of everything going on and the fact Dr. X would coach women into saying they were going to kill themselves if they didn't abort. Then he said he had a legal right to do it past viability. He did them all the way to 40 weeks. more>

Born-Alive Infanticides May be Occurring Despite Federal Law Preventing It - A Florida pro-life group is investigating allegations that babies are being left to die in the state -- despite a federal law requiring medical care to be given to them. And a nurse who drew nationwide attention to the practice says many hospitals still may not know about the pro-life law designed to care for the infants.

The infanticide practice, that some describe as a "born-alive abortion," refers to cases when a premature baby is delivered, sometimes following a botched abortion, and intentionally left to die.

Congress passed the Born Alive Infants Protection Act to help prevent their deaths and require hospitals to provide such infants with proper medical care. President Bush signed the legislation into law. more>

Catholic hospitals commit – and U.S. bishops condone – live-birth abortion - The news was a real bummer. A reporter named Tom Szyszkiewicz, who writes for the Catholic publications, Our Sunday Visitor and the National Catholic Register, was calling to tell me he had discovered two Catholic hospital systems were committing the induced-labor abortion procedure – live-birth abortion – on handicapped babies.

The bad news warped to bizarre when Szyszkiewicz said these hospitals were waiting until babies were 23 to 26 weeks gestation before aborting them – i.e., until they were of viable age – so they could say these weren't abortions at all, but simply labor inductions and, thus, sanctioned by the Catholic Church.

The Catholic hospitals' abortion strategy seemed even more risky when taking the Born Alive Infants Protection Act into account. It states that live-born babies, no matter what their gestational age or circumstances of birth, are "persons." According to the 14th Amendment, "persons" born in the United States are automatic citizens who cannot be "deprive[d] ... of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor den[ied] ... equal protection of the laws." more>

Debatable Debate Impressions III - Clinton felt our pain, and Kerry respects us enormously by Bob Redman - ... An astoundingly beautiful young woman named Sarah Degenhart stepped to the microphone and, in a voice trembling with emotion, posed the following question:

Q. "Senator Kerry, suppose you're speaking with a voter who believed abortion is murder, and the voter asked for reassurance that his or her tax dollars would not go to support abortion, what would you say to that person?"

Pow, bam, crunch. I could have kissed Miss Degenhart and hugged Charlie Gibson. Kerry did neither. He paused, reeling behind facemask, and then said:

"I would say to that person exactly what I will say to you right now. First of all, I cannot tell you how deeply I respect [Oh, oh, there he goes again.] the belief about life and when it begins."

The commentators who discussed this portion of the debate agree that Kerry went on to stumble and fumble and ramble while letting us know that, as a former altar boy, he’s against abortion but, as a public official, can’t force his deeply held belief onto other people, and on and on.

Bush responded and floored Kerry:

“Trying to decipher that. My answer is we're not going to spend federal-taxpayers' money on abortion. I - this is an issue that divides America. But certainly reasonable people can agree on how to reduce abortions in America. I signed the partial-birth - the ban on partial-birth abortion. It's a brutal practice. That's one way to help reduce abortions. My opponent voted against the ban."

Image of Unborn Baby "Walking" in the WombKerry responded with the spurious argument that he voted against the bill only because it contained no provision for the health of the mother.

Here’s what Kerry knows and doesn't want you to know: Partial-birth abortions are a 3-day procedure which is very risky in itself to the mother, and that the procedure is never carried out in order protect the physical health of the mother. The mothers are encouraged and even paid to carry the baby almost to term, and often enough the baby slips out alive anyway, in which case it is still killed. There is a method to this madness.

The purpose for partial-birth abortion is to permit the harvesting of functional fetal organs and tissue for use in transplantation and research. There is a large and growing market for such organs and tissue, their sale is enormously profitable, organized crime is involved, and many politicians are bribed to protect the industry. more>

Dr Wilke's letter about the sales of dead babies by abortuaries for 'fetal tissue' use:
Dear Pro-Life Friend:

A batch of eyes going out by UPS.
A shipment of 30 livers by Federal Express.

I can't believe this is happening - and routinely. These are real baby parts, often from live born babies who had been delivered by Partial-Birth abortion. I think it would be an understatement to say that I'm shell-shocked. I've been at the forefront of the pro-life battle for decades. Not much surprises me - until recently.

Recently a young woman has come forward to tell a horrifying account of what she has seen, and to an extent been part of in some of the abortion chambers across the nation. Her identity is concealed because she fears for her life should those in the killing centers find out that she is sharing their dirty, deadly secrets.

"Kelly" is part of a team that travels to abortion chambers to, in her words, "dissect and procure fetal tissue for high quality sales." In other words, they harvest body parts from recently aborted babies. The list of marketable part is considerable and includes eyes, livers, blood, brains, pancreatic cells, etc. more>

Fetal profits promoting partial-birth abortions? Former clinic insider cites need for intact baby parts - An abortion clinic routinely performed partial-birth abortions and even live births in order to maximize the profits from the subsequent sale of undamaged fetal tissue, claims a former technician for a business that markets fetal body parts.

"Kelly" -- the name is a pseudonym -- worked for Anatomic Gift Foundation (AGF), which sells fetal tissue to researchers, drug companies, hospitals and universities. Although marketing fetal tissue is a violation of federal law, a major loophole has allowed a burgeoning growth industry in the sale of baby body parts.

Working in AGF's rented space inside the abortion clinic, Kelly's job was to collect fetal tissue and body part "donations" from the clinic for AGF. After an abortion, Kelly would survey the various orders for body parts she had received from AGF's clients, and make sure these orders were filled in a timely manner. more>

Fetal Tissue Research Using Aborted Babies Vigorously Opposed in Nebraska - The ongoing ferocious debate over the use of brain tissue harvested from aborted babies grew even more intense when an Omaha, Nebraska, newspaper reported that the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) was not only using fetal tissue in experiments but obtaining it from the state's most notorious abortionist. There also is evidence the University of Nebraska's Board of Regents was given only limited and incomplete information about the federal grant which pays for the experimentation. more>

Kerry accepting 'blood money'? 3 infamous partial-birth abortionists give cash to Democrat - Three abortion doctors who specialize in partial-birth abortions – two of whom actually advertise their willingness to perform the grisly procedure – are all contributors to John Kerry's presidential campaign.

George Tiller and Warren Hern may be the only two abortionists in the U.S. who openly advertise that they perform third-trimester abortions, writes Douglas Johnson in the Weekly Standard. Johnson is legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee. The third doctor is Martin Haskell. Together, the three have contributed a total of $7,000 to help put Kerry in the White House.

A nurse who worked briefly at one of Haskell's clinics, Brenda Pratt Shafer, witnessed close up the partial-birth abortion of a baby boy who she said was at 26 and a half weeks, Johnson writes.

"I stood at the doctor's side and watched him perform a partial-birth abortion on a woman who was six months pregnant," Shafer said. "The baby's heartbeat was clearly visible on the ultrasound screen. The doctor delivered the baby's body and arms, everything but his little head. The baby's body was moving. His little fingers were clasping together. He was kicking his feet.

"The doctor took a pair of scissors and inserted them into the back of the baby's head, and the baby's arms jerked out in a flinch, a startle reaction, like a baby does when he thinks that he might fall. Then the doctor opened the scissors up. Then he stuck the high-powered suction tube into the hole and sucked the baby's brains out. Now the baby was completely limp. I never went back to the clinic. But I am still haunted by the face of that little boy. It was the most perfect, angelic face I have ever seen."

Tiller, whom pro-life activists have dubbed "Tiller the Killer," runs an abortion clinic in Wichita, Kan., and gave $1,000 to Kerry. Johnson notes Tiller, in a 1995 speech, spoke of performing abortions as late as 36 weeks.

Hern made three donations to two different Kerry accounts, totaling $4,000. more>

Life just got a little cheaper - In Ukraine and other former Soviet republics, women are being paid about $200 to have abortions and turn over their dead babies, which, in turn, are sold for over $9,000 for use in "youth injection" beauty treatments.

The dead pre-babies are cryogenically frozen before being peddled for use in rejuvenating skin and treatments of diseases.

Some women, according to a report in the London Observer, are being paid extra for having their abortions late term, producing more valuable dead babies.

The trade in dead babies came to light when border guards stopped a train entering Russia from Ukraine last month and arrested a man involved in smuggling 25 frozen remains in two vacuum flasks. more>

Dilation and Extraction for Late Second Trimester Abortion
Presented at the National Abortion Federation Risk Management Seminar, September 13, 1992
BY MARTIN HASKELL, M.D.

The surgical method described in this paper differs from classic D&E in that it does not rely upon dismemberment to remove the fetus. Nor are inductions or infusions used to expel the intact fetus.

Rather, the surgeon grasps and removes a nearly intact fetus through an adequately dilated cervix. The author has coined the term Dilation and Extraction or D&X to distinguish it from dismemberment-type D&E's. more>

Partial Birth Abortion - A Commitment to Gruesomeness - This year is the twenty-seventh year of legal abortion, and the only thing that appears to have changed in the debate is the addition of newer and more gruesome abortion procedures. At the top of the list is partial birth abortion.

The first legislative debate on partial birth abortion took place back in 1995 when Representative Charles Canady introduced a bill to ban this unknown procedure. Congressional testimony revealed that a fetus was delivered feet first, up to the head, so that the skull could be pierced and the brain suctioned out. more>

Partial Birth Abortion: As Described by its Inventor - So what is a "partial birth abortion", really? Let's turn to a source that cannot possibly be accused of anti-abortion bias. Let's turn to the abortionist who invented it. He wrote a paper describing how to do it for a conference of abortionists in 1992. This paper was presented to Congress during the debate on the partial-birth abortion ban bill, and so I take all the quotations I use here directly from the Congressional Record, September 19, 1996, pages H10631 and following.

The abortionist refers to the procedure as "Dilation and Extraction", or D&X for short. But how do you do it? The apparent purpose of the paper was to tell other abortionists how they could use this procedure too. He gives a quick checklist of the steps:

Dilation
MORE DILATION
real-time ultrasound visualization
version (as needed)
intact extraction
fetal skull decompression
removal
clean-up and recovery

He gives details of each of these steps. For the fifth and six steps, he explains that an assistant will use ultrasound to determine which way the baby is facing and to find his feet ("lower extremities"). Then:

The surgeon introduces a large grasping forcep, such as Bierer or Hern, through the vaginal and cervical canals into the corpus of the uterus. Based upon his knowledge of fetal orientation, he moves the tip of the instrument carefully towards the fetal lower extremities. When the instrument appears on the sonogram screen, the surgeon is able to open and close its jaws to firmly and reliably grasp a lower extremity. The surgeon then ... pulls the extremity into the vagina.

With a lower extremity in the vagina, the surgeon uses his fingers to deliver the opposite lower extremity, then the torso, the shoulders and the upper extremities. The skull lodges at the internal cervical os. Usually there is not enough dilation for it to pass through. The fetus is oriented dorsum, or spine up.

At this point, the right-handed surgeon slides the fingers of the left hand along the back of the fetus and "hooks" the shoulders of the fetus wit the index and ring fingers (palm down). Next he slides the tip of the middle finger along the spine towards the skull while applying traction to the shoulders and lower extremities. The middle finger lifts and pushes the anterior cervical lip out of the way.

While maintaining this tension, lifting the cervix and applying traction to the shoulders with the fingers of the left hand, the surgeon takes a pair of blunt curved Metzenbaum scissors in the right hand. He carefully advances the tip, curved down along the spine and under his middle finger until he feels it contact the base of the skull under the tip of his middle finger.

Reassessing proper placement of the closed scissors tip and safe elevation of the cervix, the surgeon then forces the scissors into the base of the skull or into the foramen magnum. Having safely entered the skull, he spreads the scissors to enlarge the opening. The surgeon removes the scissors and introduces a suction catheter into this hole and evacuates the skull contents. With the catheter still in place, he applies traction to the fetus, removing it completely from the patient.

Perhaps you found some of the technical medical terminology in that quote confusing. But surely there can be no confusion about the statement, "The surgeon then forces the scissors into the base of the skull" and "he spreads the scissors to enlarge the opening". more>

'Pro-choicers' clap after partial-birth abortion - Attendees of a national conference for abortion providers watched and listened with rapt attention as the inventor of the partial-birth abortion procedure narrated a video of the grisly procedure – and then burst into applause when the act was over and the unborn child destroyed. more>

Testimony of Brenda Pratt Shafer, RN - eye witness to partial birth abortions - Editor's note: The following are excerpts from Brenda Pratt Shafer's speech to NRLC '96. Shafer, an RN, participated in three partial birth abortions. Prior to that experience, she was "Pro Choice". She gave similar testimony to Congress during the Congressional investigations of the partial birth abortion.

...I worked for a nursing agency at the time and they did everything -- they staffed clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, and I did the whole gamut. And they called me one day and they said, "Brenda, will you work in this abortion clinic in Dayton?" and I said, "Well what do they do?" They said, "Well they do abortions. They do D & C abortions." That's what they told me. I have never even heard of the partial birth abortion before I walked in there. So I told them I would do it. I didn't have a problem with it, that I was pro-choice, and that's the way I felt about it. I was even interviewed when I got to the clinic about my views because they wanted to make sure, I guess, at that point that I wasn't a 'plant' there. more>

What About Harvesting Tissue from Embryos and Fetuses? - Editor's note: First published in 1995, this brochure remains surprisingly relevant. Tissue from embryos and fetuses are more in demand than ever. Investigations have revealed that abortion clinics are a conduit for baby parts, shipping them to researchers across the country for a wide variety of uses. The National Institutes of Health continues to debate whether taxpayers should fund experiments using cells and tissues from aborted babies or the embryos leftover after fertility treatments.

Shortly before this brochure was revised for republication in 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled invalid the state of Nebraska's prohibition of a procedure some abortionists use to obtain intact tissue, organs, and limbs from late term babies. This method, known as 'partial birth abortion,' is shockingly similar to the one Dr. Nathanson described below. Yet, we now know that researchers desire cells and tissue from babies at every stage of gestation, not only from the later weeks of pregnancy.

Finally, the promise of wonderful cures from these experiments has still not been realized, and many alternatives to fetal and embryonic transplants continue to be investigated. more>

Abortionist accused of eating fetuses - Kansas City clinic closed as grisly house of horrors - A Kansas City abortionist is out of business after investigators discovered a grisly house of horrors at his clinic – with fetuses kept in Styrofoam cups in his refrigerator and one employee accusing him of microwaving one and stirring it into his lunch.

Detective William Howard of the Kansas City Police Department responded. "I thought I had heard and seen every vile, disgusting crime scene, but was in for a new shock when I started this investigation," he would say later. Howard turned the matter over to the local district attorney and three state agencies.

Topping the list of horrors was an employee's account that she and others witnessed Rajanna "microwave one of the aborted fetuses and stir it into his lunch," as Howard recalled earlier this year when testifying before a Kansas House committee.

Rajanna denied the accusation. But he did keep fetuses in Styrofoam cups in the refrigerator along with food and drink. more>

'Fetus eater' loses medical license - It is so hard to find a good abortionist these days. Most seem to meet with one of three professional demises: imprisonment for sexual assault; medical license revocation for malpractice; or death, alone in their beds, while watching porn flicks after overdosing on heroin.

On June 11, it was career end No. 2 for abortionist Krishna Rajanna, proprietor of the now defunct Affordable Medical and Surgical Services in Kansas City, Kan.

Rajanna's was the poster abortion mill this past year during legislative debates on whether or not Kansas needs abortion clinic regulations. Rajanna has also been the focus of law enforcement investigations for almost two years. more>

Eating fetuses not against law? Why Kansas abortionist was not charged with crime - Ever since the story broke about a Kansas City abortionist accused of eating fetuses questions have been raised about why he wasn't charged with a crime besides losing his medical license.

The short answer, according to law enforcement authorities involved in the investigation of Krishna Rajanna, is: Because there are no laws against eating fetuses.

After being provided information about horrific conditions of a Kansas abortion clinic nearly two years ago, the Kansas state board in charge of regulating such facilities took months to investigate it and even longer to shut it down. more>

Abortionist 'flushed babies down toilet' - Doctor's receptionist also faces charges for illegally performing terminations - Police in New Jersey say an abortionist who flushed the remains of babies down toilets and tossed bloodied materials into garbage bins is now facing charges, just days after his receptionist was arrested for illegally performing terminations.

According to the Asbury Park Press, Dr. Flavius Thompson, 60, turned himself in at the Lakewood Police Department this week, and is accused of operating an abortion clinic without a license to process or store medical waste.

Thompson's office is at the Pleasant Women's Pavilion, a licensed abortion clinic, where a search warrant was executed last Saturday.

Officials say he's charged with violating the New Jersey Water Pollution Act by flushing "products of abortions" into the sanitary sewer. more>

Abortion Doctor’s Receptionist Charged with performing Illegal Abortions - A receptionist at a New Jersey abortion clinic has been charged with injecting abortion-inducing drugs. The receptionist had performed at least 4 abortions at the office of Dr. Flavius Thompson and pocketed $500 per procedure. This investigation exposes some of the many abuses that occur daily inside the so-called “safe and legal” abortion industry.

“This has always been an industry driven by greed which exploits women and puts their lives at risk, while deceptively marketing itself as champions of “women’s rights,” said Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life.

“New Jersey’s laws are very lax when in comes to abortion. It has become the great untouchable of law and politics. New Jersey abortion clinics are not even required to report abortions,” said Tasy. “Parents of minors need to be on guard that their minor daughter can get an abortion anywhere in New Jersey without their knowledge or consent. The lack of protective laws increases their risk of encountering unscrupulous abortion providers and staff which has been so pervasive throughout the industry,” said Tasy. Tasy called on state legislative leaders and lawmakers to pass a Parental Notification Constitutional Amendment without delay. more>

Abortion TV - The Internet's #1 abortion information source. - Includes everything schools, government, and abortion clinics are afraid to tell or show you - Warning - you must be at least 12 years old to visit this website!

Choice Uber Alles - It's called "selective reduction." It means killing one or more babies when a woman is pregnant with "multiples." It is a difficult decision of great moral moment.

But not in the view of free-lance lecturer Amy Richards, whose account just appeared in the New York Times Magazine. She was living with her boyfriend and decided to go off the pill. They agreed to have the child if one showed up. Alas, three babies appeared in place of one. Now what?

Her answer was no. There were health risks. Moreover, "I'll have to start shopping only at Costco and buying big jars of mayonnaise." So it was off to the specialist who would shoot potassium chloride into the hearts of two of the babies.

"Choice." Making two heartbeats disappear is simply a "choice."

Yet abortion really is not about choice. It is about consequence. The consequences of choices freely made. If you want the right to choose to have sex with whomever you want whenever you want, you can't act surprised when a child shows up, even if you didn't intend to have one. Especially if you knowingly dropped birth control.

Which means that "selective reduction" is not the same as breast reduction. Or having an appendix removed. Or most any other medical treatment. There is another life involved. more>

‘Cosmetic abortion’ fears over ability to identify defects earlier - The scientist behind the remarkable 4D ultrasound images of babies “walking” in the womb has re-ignited pressure for a review of Britain’s abortion law with a breakthrough technique to detect cleft palates in foetuses. Professor Stuart Campbell has adapted the scanning technology to pick up the abnormality weeks before traditional ultrasound would detect it. more>

Doctor charged with performing abortions after license revoked - A doctor whose license was revoked for botching abortions, including leaving fetus parts inside a patient, was arrested on charges he continued to perform the procedures.

Robelto A. Osborne, 44, turned himself in to police Wednesday and was released on bond. He was charged with performing medicine without a license, a third-degree felony. more>

FDA To Announce Important Labeling Changes for Mifepristone - The Food and Drug Administration will announce today important new safety changes to the Danco Laboratories, LLC's labeling of mifepristone (trade name Mifeprex, also known as RU-486). Mifeprex was approved in 2000 for the termination of early pregnancy, defined as 49 days or less. FDA and Danco Laboratories have received reports of serious bacterial infection, bleeding, ectopic pregnancies that have ruptured, and death, including another death from sepsis that was recently reported to FDA. These reports have led to the revision of the black box labeling.

Baby Rowan - Florida Baby is Born Alive after Late-Term Abortion

'I aborted my handicapped baby' - It took us 18 months to conceive. We were over the moon. It was wonderful.

Then, my routine triple screen blood test came back abnormal, and my doctor told me to go to a hospital in Nashville for a Level II ultrasound.

When the doctor finally got off the phone, she checked and told my husband and I she was sorry but our baby had anencephaly. She said, "What usually happens now is you terminate," and, "We have a guy here who's really good at D&Es, and you can check in right now." She did not explain what a D&E is [dilatation and evacuation: dilating the cervix, cutting the baby up, and removing the body parts]. She also described the induced-labor abortion procedure. more>

Labor and delivery - ABORTION: A gruesome Florida abortion saga reveals sordid—and possibly illegal—practices in late-term procedures - "It's a women's clinic . . . My friend is having an abortion and the baby was born alive. . . . They're not allowing her to use the phone there. They're wanting the baby to die! . . . and she's not wanting that to happen."

That was a portion of the 911 call to the Orlando Fire Department on April 2, when a 34-year-old woman named Angele (who asked that only her first name be used) claims to have delivered a live baby during a botched abortion at the EPOC Clinic—and that the child died after clinic workers refused to render aid or call for help. more>

Monsters With Medical Practices: Performing Partial Birth Abortions On Pre-Born Babies
Dilation and Extraction for Late Second Trimester Abortion
Presented at the National Abortion Federation Risk Management Seminar, September 13, 1992
BY MARTIN HASKELL, M.D. (donor/contributor to John Kerry's campaign)

The surgical method described in this paper differs from classic D&E in that it does not rely upon dismemberment to remove the fetus. Nor are inductions or infusions used to expel the intact fetus.

Rather, the surgeon grasps and removes a nearly intact fetus through an adequately dilated cervix. The author has coined the term Dilation and Extraction or D&X to distinguish it from dismemberment-type D&E's. more>

Mother Can Sue Abortion Business Over Daughter's Abortion Death - An Illinois appeals court has ruled that a woman whose 13 year-old daughter died following a botched abortion has the right to file a lawsuit against the abortion business where it was performed.
Dianne Adams initially filed a wrongful death suit related to her daughter Deanna Bell's death in 1994 and, five years later, a jury ruled in favor of the abortion facility.

In 2000, an appellate court reversed the decision and said the judge in the initial case wrongly blocked some evidence from being admitted.

Adams attempted to re-file the case last year, according to an AP story, but a judge ruled too much time had elapsed since Bell's death. The appeals court decision Friday reinstates the lawsuit.

On September 4, Bell had the D&E abortion procedure performed under general anesthesia.

According to court records, Bell was given 150 milligrams (mg) of Brevital as an induction dose and three subsequent maintenance doses of 100 mg, 100 mg, and 50 mg.

Brevital is a fast-acting barbiturate. Recommended doses, according to the medical literature, for a patient of Bell's weight would have been 53 mg to 70 mg as an induction dose and subsequent maintenance doses of 20 mg to 40 mg every four to seven minutes.

Attorneys for Adams argue the high doses caused respiration problems that eventually led to Bell's death.

Bell returned the next day and was given an even higher dose of the anesthesia drugs because she appeared to be nervous and because the extraction procedure to remove laminaria is painful.

After the abortion, while being transferred to the recovery room, staff noticed Bell turned pale and began having significant breathing problems.

The only staff member on hand at the time was a woman who had no medical training. Adams' attorneys say at least two registered nurses should have been with bell during the recovery. more>

RU-486 Information from National Right to Life

Save a Mother, Kill a Baby - ''Save a Mother, kill a baby" seems to be the most popular excuse for abortion. Doctors, feminists, and others say that abortion should be legal since a mother's life might be in danger.

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, a ''whopping'' 6.1% of all abortions are due to maternal and fetal heath risks. If you think about it, only 2.8% really concerns the woman's health. If we speak solely of the health of the child, this is indeed a risk, but not a definite risk. But maternal risk seems nonexistent. more>

  Is there a link between Abortion and Breast Cancer?
 Abortion and Breast Cancer - Medical studies on the possible connection between abortion and breast cancer.
 Abortion and breast cancer - Fifty years of research is in and the record is now clear – abortion significantly increases the risk of breast cancer. That's what one of the nation's premier researchers wrote in a paper published earlier this week. And the fact that no other major news organization has yet covered the comprehensive report by Joel Brind, a professor of human biology and endocrinology at Baruch College, City University of New York and president of the Breast Cancer Prevention Center, is nearly as shocking as the findings of the paper. more>

 Abortion-cancer link goes on trial - N. Dakota case could undercut key argument of rights advocates - The Red River Women's Clinic in Fargo, N.D., is being sued by Amy Jo Mattson to compel the clinic to inform women considering abortion about the evidence supporting increased risk of breast cancer.

The case hinges on whether the information contained in a pamphlet given out by the Red River Women's Clinic is true. As WorldNetDaily previously reported, the clinic was disseminating a brochure containing the following statement: "Anti-abortion activists claim that having an abortion increases the risk of breast cancer and endangers future child-bearing. None of these claims are supported by medical research or established medical organizations." more>

Abortionist accused of eating fetuses - Kansas City clinic closed as grisly house of horrors - A Kansas City abortionist is out of business after investigators discovered a grisly house of horrors at his clinic – with fetuses kept in Styrofoam cups in his refrigerator and one employee accusing him of microwaving one and stirring it into his lunch.

Detective William Howard of the Kansas City Police Department responded. "I thought I had heard and seen every vile, disgusting crime scene, but was in for a new shock when I started this investigation," he would say later. Howard turned the matter over to the local district attorney and three state agencies.

Topping the list of horrors was an employee's account that she and others witnessed Rajanna "microwave one of the aborted fetuses and stir it into his lunch," as Howard recalled earlier this year when testifying before a Kansas House committee.

Rajanna denied the accusation. But he did keep fetuses in Styrofoam cups in the refrigerator along with food and drink. more>

'Fetus eater' loses medical license - It is so hard to find a good abortionist these days. Most seem to meet with one of three professional demises: imprisonment for sexual assault; medical license revocation for malpractice; or death, alone in their beds, while watching porn flicks after overdosing on heroin.

On June 11, it was career end No. 2 for abortionist Krishna Rajanna, proprietor of the now defunct Affordable Medical and Surgical Services in Kansas City, Kan.

Rajanna's was the poster abortion mill this past year during legislative debates on whether or not Kansas needs abortion clinic regulations. Rajanna has also been the focus of law enforcement investigations for almost two years. more>

Aborted baby's head left inside woman - Couple horrified to find face of child after returning home - A British hospital is now investigating the case of a woman who had an abortion, but then was shocked to find out the head of her unborn baby had been left inside her. Davina Chambers, 29, became pregnant this year with her fourth child, but she had just been diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis, a disease eating away at her liver. It was during routine medical tests she discovered she was 12 weeks pregnant. more>

Aborted-fetus shots used to stop aging 'I had lots of wrinkles ... but now the skin is as smooth as a baby's' - There's a heavy demand in Russia for aborted and miscarried fetuses – for stem-cell injection treatments designed as anti-aging therapies.

The treatments are the hottest thing among the Russian elite since Botox.

According to a report in the Scotsman, pharmaceutical magnate and former presidential candidate Vladimir Bryntsalov, 58, one of Russia's 27 billionaires, is already a firm believer in the experimental treatment that can cost as much as $9,000 per session.

"I had lots of wrinkles on my face, but now the skin is as smooth as a baby's," he said. "I also had terrible scars on my body that were there since childhood, but they too have disappeared." more>

Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation - Ronald Reagan’s pro-life tract - The 10th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade is a good time for us to pause and reflect. Our nationwide policy of abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy was neither voted for by our people nor enacted by our legislators — not a single state had such unrestricted abortion before the Supreme Court decreed it to be national policy in 1973. But the consequences of this judicial decision are now obvious: since 1973, more than 15 million unborn children have had their lives snuffed out by legalized abortions. That is over ten times the number of Americans lost in all our nation's wars.

Make no mistake, abortion-on-demand is not a right granted by the Constitution. No serious scholar, including one disposed to agree with the Court's result, has argued that the framers of the Constitution intended to create such a right. Shortly after the Roe v. Wade decision, Professor John Hart Ely, now Dean of Stanford Law School, wrote that the opinion "is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be." Nowhere do the plain words of the Constitution even hint at a "right" so sweeping as to permit abortion up to the time the child is ready to be born. Yet that is what the Court ruled.

Abortion Causing 'Black Genocide,' Activists Say - During America's commemoration of Black History Month, some pro-life activists are charging that legalized abortion has led to a "black genocide" of more than 14 million unborn African-American babies. They condemn, in particular, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, whose president Gloria Feldt announced last week that she's resigning.

"For every five African-American women who get pregnant, three have an abortion," Clenard Childress Jr., director of the Northeast Chapter of the Life Education And Resource Network, told the Cybercast News Service. "This is a horrific injustice to women, and it's decimating our communities." more>

Abortion counseling service is going national - After she had an abortion at 23, Aspen Baker longed to talk with other women about the welter of emotions she was going through – the relief, the regret, the feeling of foolishness for getting pregnant in the first place.
"To want that and not find it made me feel I must be outside the norm, that I was crazy or weird," said Baker, now 29.

Funneling her frustration into action, Baker banded together with four other women who share her support for abortion rights and founded Exhale, a post-abortion telephone counseling service that has carved out a place of its own in a field often marked by extremes.

Launched in 2002 and staffed by more than two dozen volunteer counselors on an annual budget of $200,000, the confidential talk line – 1-866-4-EXHALE – has until now been available only in the San Francisco Bay area. It is going nationwide this week. more>

Abortion in Russia: No Big Deal - There may be no sex in Russia, so goes a Soviet urban legend. And somehow, with abortions outnumbering live births nearly 2 to 1, if you’re a Russian woman and never had one, you’re a statistical non-entity.

The women I spoke to — stoic, intelligent matrons obviously with other things on their minds besides talking their husbands into using condoms — took it for granted that they had friends who’d chide them with “I’ve had thirty abortions already, what’s the big deal?” when they had to make that trip to the clinic. more>

'Abortion kills' shirts stir debate over speech in high school - Sisters Brittany and Tamera Chandler said they were threatened with suspension when they wore the T-shirts, which included a picture of a fetus above the words "Abortion Kills Kids," as part of Tuesday's "National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day." more>

Abortion Linked to Later Anxiety Problems, New Study Shows - Women who abort unintended pregnancies are more likely to experience subsequent problems with anxiety compared to women who deliver their unintended pregnancies, according to a study published in the latest edition of Journal of Anxiety Disorders. more>

Abortion more prevalent for birth control - While teen numbers decline, those having procedure multiple times on rise - According to a study by Janice Shaw Crouse of the Beverly LaHaye Institute, abortion is no longer represented by a frightened young teenager faced with a first pregnancy. Instead, Crouse reports teen abortions are declining, while abortion is increasingly being used as a method of birth control among women beyond their teen years.

Women over age 25 are having the largest share of abortions, the report states. Also, the number of women having repeat abortions is increasing (some with four or more), and more abortions are being performed on women who have previously had a live birth. more>

Abortion survivor to tell story at rally - Gianna Jessen came into the world as a surprise. Her 17-year-old mother knew she was pregnant. She also knew she didn't want to be. She underwent an abortion procedure, having toxic saline solution injected into the womb during the third trimester.
Jessen, then in the womb for 7½ months, spent 18 hours in the solution. "It burns the baby inside and out," she said. "(The mother) is to deliver a dead baby within 24 hours." But when a 2-pound Jessen emerged, she was alive.

"I did not die that day," Jessen said. "I was delivered alive in a Los Angeles County abortion clinic in a room full of teenage girls who had already had the saline injections and were feeling their children die inside of them." more>

Abort pro-choice retirees from Social Security program - I confess I have no patience for pro-choice senior citizens.

There they are whining about President Bush's proposal to allow young workers to privately invest a percentage of their own Social Security payments, and I think: What nerve.

Almost 32 years ago, these gods decreed themselves the right to abort the very young people they now demand pay for their Alaskan cruises and bingo games, if they somehow managed to survive. Incredible.

As more and more baby boomers reach retirement age, they will continue to reap what they have sown. They have already suctioned, dismembered and decapitated their very own children, and by so doing decimated their own bodies, minds and souls.

Now, another of their pitiful harvests will be the lack of young workers paying into the Social Security system. Approximately one-third of them have been aborted.

And it's not just aborted children who will never pay Social Security. Some of their children would now be nearing entry-level work age, but they have been offed as well.

Abortion just doesn't kill children; it kills family trees. more>

Abortion on demand - national suicide -by Bob Redman ...The Roe vs. Wade decision on 22 Jan. 1973 removed the issue of abortion on demand from the state legislatures' control and put it in the hands of old, black-robed demigods called judges. Although at higher levels these people are appointed, they remain political beings and subject to the temptation of power like anyone else.

Since then, more than 40 million clinical abortions have been performed in our country, and this year there will be about 1 million abortions. To put this in perspective, this means that 3000 babies are being killed every day which is the same toll as the one exacted on us in New York on 11 Sept. 2001.

Currently, aside from the acquisition and maintenance of power which is a constant, the fundamental issue in our country's politics is that of abortion. It underlies every other political discussion because the largest single voting block supporting the democrats are those women (along with the men catering, or attempting to cater to them), who demand to be granted the same freedom to be irresponsible which they suppose men are granted. It boils down to a demand for Constitutional protection against stretch marks. Without this voting block, the democrat party would fall apart. Having to really work to find and defend positions which a national majority will support is not a pleasant prospect for politicians spoiled and corrupted by the automatic votes of this block. There is also, big surprise, money involved.

The abortion industry is very profitable. On the average, the clinics rake in about $1000 on every abortion performed, and much of this money comes from the government. In addition, the clinics sell off the body parts, harvested in late term abortions, through the channels of organized crime. There is so much money involved that some of it finds its way into the pockets of legislators. Until 1860, the slavery issue fulfilled the same purpose for the democrat party (1), and like the slavery issue, abortion is threatening to disrupt the cohesion and peace of the Union as its supporters in Congress resort to extra-constitutional expedients in order to prevent the growing number of anti-abortion Americans from being heard.

This number is, in fact, a growing majority. The best possible indicator of the real sense of the nation toward abortion is the composition of the U.S. House of Representatives and specifically, its 4 June 2003 vote on its version of the Bill to Ban Partial-Birth Abortion (H.R. 760). In the roll call 282 representatives voted for the bill, explicitly rejecting the Senate's proposed Harkin amendment, and 139 voted against. Click here to see a summary of this vote.

For this reason the democrats avoid talking about this issue and obfuscate when they must. When they thunder about Iraq, errant WMD's, unilateralism, taxing the rich, disappearing manufacturing jobs, level playing fields, and (very recently) deficits, they are really talking about abortion. And power of course.

Abortion on demand is the same thing as abortion on whim or for convenience. Whatever you call it, it is murder. In addition, abortion is national suicide. If just a quarter of the babies aborted since 1973 had survived, we would have a sounder foundation for future social security disbursements, and we would have much less of a problem today with illegal immigration. The illegal immigrants are drawn here by a vacuum in our work force which our suicidal social policy has created. These workers are not going to go away, so they must be dealt with fairly. However, we can begin to resolve the crisis by recognizing that it exists, by putting order into a chaotic situation, and by overturning Roe vs. Wade.

I have to admit, for much of my life I accepted the assertion that women should have the right to choose whether to bear a child or not. As far as I can remember, I never discussed the issue, and was never challenged on it. What changed my mind was reading an article about partial-birth abortion, called "intact dilation and extraction" or D&X by people fleeing from the reality of what they do or support. Click here to see diagrams of what such people are trying to suppress in their own minds. It was banned by landmark legislation in the fall of 2003, but now several activist judges are attempting to prevent implementation of the law. You find below a line drawing of the final stage of the procedure.

When I first learned the details of the procedure, I was struck by the horror of it, and then I realized that it was the logical consequence of opening the door in the first place. It was only a matter of time before the limits were extended to the end of the third trimester, at late as just minutes before the birth of a viable baby. The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan thought that partial-birth abortion is "too close to infanticide." So close that, indeed, there are now people who dare to assert in public and print that newly born babies have no personality, and that therefore infanticide should be legal, if the mother so chooses. Nobel Prize winners James Watson and Francis Crick have suggested there be period of time after birth during which parents could decide whether to keep their baby or have it killed. They just differ on how much time.

In addition, some babies are born alive despite the best efforts of the abortion practitioner (2). Senators Lautenberg (D-NJ and Feingold (D-WI) have said that if a child were to "slip out" alive during a partial-birth abortion, the mother and her doctor should be able to decide whether to let the child live or die. Rest assured that such babies are then often destroyed, with or without the parents' consent. From these considerations I conclude that it is time to shut the door, incrementally if we must. If we don't, sooner or later the Andrea Yates model will become the social norm.

Here are a couple of dirty secrets which the pro-abortion would like to keep you from finding out: All of the procedures, even those used to terminate first term pregnancies (such as D&C or dilation and curettage or scraping of the uterus), can scar the uterus wall or damage the cervix and thus result in reduced fertility of the mothers. Sometimes the mothers even die from a legally performed abortion. In addition, there is the increased risk of breast cancer and high incidence of depression among women who have aborted a child. In fact, according to statistics, women who have had an abortion have a lower life expectancy than women who haven't.

A fair question has been asked me: How far would I shut the door? Since I am trying to address this problem from a practical as well as an ethical point of view, I admit that it is impossible at the moment to eliminate abortion entirely. To do so would entail all of us acting in a responsible manner all of the time which is humanly impossible. However, I tentatively propose a standard which would limit the damage to the mothers and to society and avoid the problems which more subjective standards create: viability. If the fetus is viable, that is, has reached the stage of development, however early this is, at which our current technology can save his or her life, then the fetus should receive the same care which any other member of our society can expect...

The next steps toward overturning Roe vs. Wade and returning the matter to state legislatures could be:

1) Banning the very commonly practiced dismemberment of the fetus in the womb in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. The abortion merchants refer to this procedure as "dilation and evacuation" or D&E or "instrumental disarticulation." Click here to learn about this particular barbarity;

2) Following up on the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. It was passed in the Senate on 25 March 2004, but applies only to Federal crimes. The states must now pass similar legislation in order to make the protection complete;

3) Passage of state legislation mandating parental consent for minors and, for all pregnant women, informed consent, in effect a truth in labeling requirement for abortion merchants. In states where they must inform the pregnant mothers about the possible consequences of and alternatives to the procedure, the abortion rate has declined.

4) Passage of the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act (HR 4420) introduced by Representative Christopher H. Smith (R-NJ).

There is much you can do:

- Talk to your neighbors and co-workers;

- Write to the senators representatives and express your opinion. An efficient way of doing this is through the people at Laptop Lobbyists who will send faxes to all 100 senators for $25;

- Make some contribution to defeat one or more of the pro-abortion senators up for reelection this year.

- Vote for George W. Bush who is pro-life. If he is reelected, we have a chance to overturn Roe vs. Wade which may not recur in our lifetimes.... more>

Abortionists kill 25,000 jobs at GM - Last week General Motors held their annual shareholders meeting. As noted in World Magazine, chairman Rick Wagoner outlined plans for getting the company back on track. Most noted by the major media were the plans to shrink North American operations leading to the elimination of another 25,000 jobs. Although World caught it, most of the media missed (or intentionally failed to report) that Wagoner clearly identified union-demanded benefits as a big cause of General Motors' problems. The chairman identified that health care costs add $1,500 to the cost of each car sold by the company, placing the company at a huge disadvantage to foreign competitors. This should come as no surprise to BizNetDaily readers since we reported to you nearly two years ago that the unions were demanding outrageous health care benefits and that GM was more than happy to consider these demands. At the core of those demands were requirements, inserted by the normal anti-God forces that dominate union leadership, that auto makers pay for the murder of unborn babies. more>

Will justice be done for baby Rowan? At 5 ½ months, Rowan was born April 2, 2005, in Orlando, Fla., inside an abortion clinic. Rowan's mother, Angele, thought she wanted an abortion. She took the medication to begin the procedure according to the instructions provided by the clinic. more>

Be a Pro Life Witness to your community, Pro Life Signs - We received an email recently that provided some useful information. One piece of legislation that we have supported since our very first year has been the "Women's Right To Know" bill. This is a simple bill, already passed in many States that simply ends discrimination against pregnant women.
On every elective surgery except one, patient's have the right and are required to be given some disclosure about potential harmful effects and alternatives. The one exception is abortion.

It is not a surprise to anyone that many Chamber types only look at the amount of cash generated by the abortion industry (billions). Such things as long term effects on women, the short term and permanent effect on unborn babies and society are not of interest to them. In addition to the money - abortions reduce the number of native born children to make more room for illegal aliens who they can hire cheaper. To the Chamber types "money" is the only thing that matters. The only thing about the citizens that they consider to be important is that they have wallets from which the Chamber types can extract more money. more>

Big Infanticide - Between the years 1973 and 2003, approximately 44,670,812 abortions were performed in the United States. An estimated 435,000 Americans die each year from tobacco-related illnesses. In other words, approximately 1,489,027 are killed each year by Big Infanticide, while only 435,000 are killed by Big Tobacco!

Millions of dollars are spent by our government to warn us about the dangers of Big Tobacco. Programs in our schools teach children to fear Big Tobacco. Taxes are raised continually to drive Big Tobacco out of business. Movies are made about the evils of Big Tobacco. Lawyers sue Big Tobacco on behalf of their supposed victims. States sue Big Tobacco. Just this week, ''After five years of legal wrangling, the nation's largest cigarette-makers are meeting federal lawyers in court for the trial phase of the government's record $280 billion civil racketeering suit against the tobacco industry,'' the Associated Press reports.
Abortion is a legal practice, and according to Roe vs. Wade, a right guaranteed to Americans. Isn't tobacco use and the sale of tobacco also legal? Don't we have a right to use tobacco? Why is Big Tobacco hated, but Big Infanticide celebrated?

The reason for such disparity is that Big Infanticide has better public relations. Groups like the National Organization of Women, Planned Parenthood, and the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) have spent the past four decades lobbying Congress, running relentless advertising campaigns, and co-opting public school curriculums. Big Infanticide has convinced much of America that the babies it kills are not even real, live human beings. But, so what if they are, it is a choice, a right guaranteed to women!

Recently, Planned Parenthood issued a T-shirt bearing the slogan, ''I had an abortion.'' The goal of this activist wear was to make such a statement so commonplace that it would carry no stigma. To Big Infanticide, killing an unwanted child is as innocent a deed as taking out the trash. In fact, they see those actions as very similar. more>

Biohazard bags & buckets - Although it was only first acknowledged publicly in 1999, the practice of live-birth abortion is now known to be widespread. The nurse I spoke with by phone worked at a late term abortion clinic chain on Florida's west coast. She described wanton barbarism, on par with Nazi Germany's Dr. Mengele:

I saw a lot of babies born alive ... Dr. X said that was a side effect of a medication. They always said to leave the baby alone, and they would stop breathing ... Two hours was the longest I saw a baby live ... One girl was 26-27 weeks ...

They put the babies in red biohazard bags when they were still moving ... tied the bag up ... put them in a biohazard box. The biohazard medical service would pick boxes up Monday and Thursday.

There was one incident where the woman had the baby while she was waiting at the door for the clinic to open. She got there at 7 a.m. The clinic opened at 8 a.m. She said the baby was born alive. The baby was now dead, and she was holding the baby in a bag. She was bleeding.

I know this nurse – Bridget. She was working there when the new doctor held a baby under water in a bucket when she told him the baby was alive. That baby was between 25-26 weeks. Bridget left two months ago because of that. more>

British Girl Who Had Secret Abortion is Pregnant Again, Will Keep Baby - A British girl who triggered a national controversy after she had an abortion without her mother's knowledge is pregnant again. But this time, student Melissa Smith intends to keep the baby. Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for the pro-life group known as LIFE, Rachel Heath, said, “It is not uncommon for women who have an abortion to become pregnant again soon after.”

"Many women find the pain of their abortion difficult to bear and go on to have an ‘atonement' baby. This is often by the same father," Heath said.

British miracle baby survives 2-day abortion procedure; child 'defeated all the odds' - Sometimes an abortion does not produce a dead child. In a recently reported case from Great Britain, even multiple attempts at an abortion failed to do so.

A baby boy who survived repeated efforts to kill him while he was in the womb is doing well as a 2-year-old, according to a report in a British medical journal. Physicians at Salford’s Hope Hospital, where the infant was treated after his birth 24 weeks into his mother’s pregnancy, believe he is the most prematurely born baby to survive abortion long term. more>

Can the unborn save future generations? - The mothers – with no excuse or reason necessary other than "I don't want it" – could have murdered any of these children legally. But it seems incredulous to me that it can be both ways. If it is not permissible for a father to murder his 18-week-old unborn child by beating-up its mother, then how can it be argued as permissible for the mother – with perhaps less provocation (sarcasm intended) – to do the same?

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Kate Michelman, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry as a whole continue to oppose and lobby against measures under legislative consideration, e.g., "Unborn Victims of Violence Act" renamed the "Laci and Connor Law," when these unborn children are presenting unambiguous proofs contradicting their positions. more>

China - The Lost Girls of China - Both Chinese and Westerners fear discussing the issue openly because the census also reveals that the human rights abuses stemming from the one-child policy are as grave, if not worse, than feared.

China Uses Abortion as Female Genocide - Shocking pictures of an apparent victim of China's "one-child policy" - a newborn baby girl lying dead in a gutter, ignored by passers-by - have prompted shock and revulsion. The pictures, published in a British newspaper Wednesday, come at a time British government officials are holding talks in China over human rights issues.

DIANA HAD A SECRET ABORTION - DIANA, Princess of Wales had a secret abortion while having an affair before she and Charles were divorced, a new book sensationally claims. The book says that Diana freaked out when she learned she was pregnant in 1994 and became almost unhinged with misery and grief .

At the time, the Princess was having an affair with wealthy art dealer Oliver Hoare. According to The Real Diana, by Royal author and socialite Lady Colin Campbell, she wanted to keep the baby and told friends wistfully: Suppose it s a girl. But distraught as she was, she knew what she had to do. According to the book, after Diana recovered from the abortion she was overtaken with anxiety. more>

Diary of an Unborn Baby - Fetal Development From conception to birth -

Day 1: fertilization: all human chromosomes are present; unique human life begins.

Day 6: embryo begins implantation in the uterus.

Day 22: heart begins to beat with the child’s own blood, often a different type than the mothers’.

Week 3: By the end of third week the child’s backbone spinal column and nervous system are forming. The liver, kidneys and intestines begin to take shape.

Week 4: By the end of week four the child is ten thousand times larger than the fertilized egg.

Week 5: Eyes, legs, and hands begin to develop. more>

Dutch baby euthanasia warrants no prosecution - Study reports 22 cases of infant mercy killing where cases dismissed between 1997 and 2004 - A study published today in the Dutch Journal of Medicine reveals that doctors in the Netherlands have been killing infants born with disabilities at least since 1997, despite euthanasia of children being illegal in that country.

Dr. Eduard Verhagen, a pediatrician at Groningen University Medical Center and one of the study's authors, is a well-known advocate of euthanasia. As reported by WorldNetDaily, Verhagen has boasted of killing four seriously deformed babies within the last two years. more>

Farah talks abortion-breast cancer link - Hosts pioneer researcher on subject who points to cover up - As WorldNetDaily reported, Joel Brind Ph.D. says an overwhelming amount of evidence collected in nearly 50 years of studies demonstrating a conclusive link between abortion and breast cancer has been systematically covered up by biased scientists, government agencies and the news media using fraudulent data to deceive women about potentially life-and-death decisions. more>

FDA poised to approve pedophile thrill pill - Tuesday an FDA joint committee recommended that Plan B, an emergency contraceptive, be approved for sale without prescription. The final FDA decision is expected in February. These sad dupes support easily accessible ECs to have yet one more way to avoid the consequences of illicit sex.

That is precisely the reason pedophiles support easily accessible ECs. Sexual predators would welcome this tool to keep assaults of stepdaughters, nieces, daughters of friends, or infatuated students hidden, storing a stash of ECs in their bedroom drawer or pocket to give their victim after each rape. No pregnancy, no evidence. more>

FETAL HANDICAP AND INFANTICIDE - Abortion Leads to Infanticide Like Night Follows Day - Why?

Because it’s completely logical. Follow this example. Let’s assume that a mother has the amniocentesis test to be sure that she is not carrying a Down’s syndrome baby. If it is positive, she definitely intends to have the unborn baby killed by abortion. In this instance, the test is normal.

But, when the baby is born, he turns out to have Down’s syndrome. The test was mistaken. Now what? If she had identified the baby’s condition before birth, she would have "solved" the problem by killing the tiny patient.

Now the baby is breathing air. Now the diagnosis is definite. Now there is also no danger to the mother as a result of the "procedure."

Why not kill the baby now? more>

Former Actress: Abortion Hurts Women - Caron Strong recently became the national director of mobilization for Operation Outcry: Silent No More (www.operationoutcry.org), an organization “working to overturn Roe v. Wade in light of new evidence of the physical, emotional, and psychological damage to women who have experienced abortion and new scientific evidence regarding the undeniable humanity of the child at the time of conception.”

She knows first hand the horror of abortion. She’s been through it more than once, and she doesn’t want women to needlessly suffer like she has.

“Operation Outcry addresses the women’s rights aspect of the pro-abortion dogma and contrasts their ideas with our actual experiences,” says Caron. “We are women who know first hand the remorse, guilt, pain, and shame of abortion

“We are women who have attempted suicides, lived out lies, and buried our nails into our carpets trying not to wake the neighbors with our grief-stricken cries. We are women who have received forgiveness and healing in Jesus Christ. And now we are women speaking the truth that abortion ‘rights’ advocates do not want to hear, namely, that abortion hurts women. more>

From fetus to baby - In a spectacular murder case in Missouri, Lisa Montgomery strangled to death Bobbie Jo Stinnett, who was eight months pregnant. Montgomery cut open Stinnett's womb and kidnapped her child. This is a horrific crime that, like the Scott Peterson case, opens an uncomfortable window into our culture's tortured reasoning on anything related to unborn life.

During the coverage of the crime, the status of the Bobbie Jo Stinnett's unborn girl steadily changed. All at once on AOL News during the weekend, there were headlines tracking events in the case: "Woman Slain, Fetus Stolen"; "Woman Arrested, Baby Returned in Bizarre Murder"; "Infant in Good Health." Note how a "fetus" -- something for which American law and culture has very little respect -- was somehow instantly transformed into a "baby" and "infant" -- for which we have the highest respect. By what strange alchemy does that happen? more>

How Men Feel After Abortion - In their own words, what abortion does to men. more>

How lying marketers sold Roe v. Wade to America - "Women must have control over their own bodies."

"Safe and legal abortion is every woman's right."

"Who decides? You decide!"

"Abortion is a personal decision between a woman and her doctor."

"Who will make this most personal decision of a woman's life? Will women decide, or will the politicians and bureaucrats in Washington?"

"Freedom of choice – a basic American right."

In one of the most successful marketing campaigns in modern political history, the "abortion rights movement" – with all of its emotionally compelling catch-phrases and powerful political slogans – has succeeded in turning what once was a heinous crime into a fiercely defended constitutional right.

During the tumultuous 1960s, after centuries of legal prohibition and moral condemnation of abortion, a handful of dedicated activists launched an unprecedented marketing campaign. Their aim was twofold: first, to capture the news media and thus public opinion, and then, to change the nation's abortion laws. more>

How society enables the abuse of kids - Consider that in Kansas and Indiana the states' chief law enforcement officials have decided to pursue and prosecute child molesters by searching medical records for evidence of rape and child abuse.

Specifically, in Indiana, Attorney General Steve Carter and his Medical Fraud Control Unit want to search the medical records of 12- and 13-year-olds who were victims of child abuse. (In Indiana, anybody under the age of 14 who has sex is, by law, a victim of abuse.)

In Kansas, Attorney General Phill Kline has subpoenaed medical records in an investigation of abortion clinics regarding child rape and illegal late term abortions. (Under Kansas law, when a girl under 14 is pregnant, she has been raped.)

Attorneys General Kline and Carter obviously recognize their duty to investigate such criminal activity to protect the children of their respective states. They also recognize their duty to expose and prosecute those who routinely cover up such crimes.

As you might expect, Planned Parenthood is denouncing the efforts to seize patient medical records from clinics, calling the actions "a coordinated attempt to intimidate health-care providers and patients." In each case, abortion rights advocates object on grounds of privacy.

Ironically, that means the rapists go free under the veil of women's sexual freedom and right to abortion. So instead of protecting the very people the organization supposedly exists to serve, Planned Parenthood is protecting men who abuse women and young girls.

Truth is the reaction of Planned Parenthood isn't a surprise. The surprise is that the so many millions of men and women can be alarmed and outraged by the sexual assault and murder of a 9-year-old little girl like Jessica and not see their contribution. It lies in society's tolerance and individual support of abortion and sexual promiscuity in its myriad forms. In the end, it makes us all partly to blame for what happened to Jessica Lunsford. more>

In praise of ‘Jesusland’ - As in previous years, Planned Parenthood has been selling greetings cards for abortion proponents filled with seasonal cheer to send to each other: ‘Choice On Earth’, they proclaim. I can just about understand being a proponent of abortion; I find it harder to fathom someone whose obsession with the subject extends to sending out holiday cards on the theme. Especially as, insofar as the Christmas story is relevant to this question, it’s a season to reflect on the potential of every new life. more>

In Service to Inhumanity - What is the difference between aborting a baby and euthanizing it? Nothing except the timing of the killing. In the Netherlands, a country that never hesitates to unfold the logic of liberalism to its farthest points, doctors have devised a program to euthanize babies deemed defective. They euthanized four babies last year, according to press reports earlier in the week. Now they are calling upon the Dutch government to pursue a more ambitious program that would let doctors euthanize undesirables with "no free will," meaning minors. more>

'In the Womb' film gets encore showings - National Geographic airs high-tech 4-D images of developing baby - After an initial showing earlier this month, the documentary "In the Womb," which chronicles the development of a child from fertilization to birth, will be aired at least five more times on the National Geographic channel.

The two-hour film, which uses the latest high-tech 4-D ultrasound images to capture a developing girl in the womb, first aired on Sunday. National Geographic reportedly received thousands of calls in support of the documentary, prompting the rescheduling for tonight, tomorrow and March 18. more>

'Jane Roe' appeals to Supreme Court - Plaintiff in landmark abortion case seeking to overturn 1973 decision - The woman known as "Roe" in the landmark case that struck down all state laws restricting abortion is appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn its 1973 decision.

As WorldNetDaily reported, Norma McCorvey began a quest in 2003 to reopen the case, based on changes in law and new scientific research that make the prior decision "no longer just." She cites the sworn testimony of more than 1,000 women who say they were hurt by abortion. more>

Liberals, Abortion, and the Least Among Us - Children are the least among us, and unborn children the least of those.
To continue abortion in America, liberals must be willing to deny or forget that abortion ends a life--a tiny life of one of the least among us.

Making these least among us ''disposable'' is necessary for one of the last entrenched liberal battlegrounds, and it comes down to this: What we allow liberals to do to the least among us reflects our valuation of good and evil in America.

Liberal ''justification'' of abortion is becoming increasingly ludicrous. Here are some of the intensely sad arguments I have encountered recently:

Because humans are subject to primal urges, they are unable to resist sex. Unwanted pregnancy is a result of design limitations, which must be correctable by the availability of abortion.

Primal urges entered the world when man did, and are nothing new. Each generation struggles to balance primal urges with what is good for society. The liberal conveniently forgets that a generation ago sexual abstinence until marriage was the norm in America, with shame attached to breaching that standard.

The abortion industry is a vital part of the nation’s economy. In these uncertain economic times, we cannot put people out of jobs.

Mega dollars certainly flow in the abortion industry, and abortionists are loath to relinquish the cash cow. But those degraded dollars are countered by the loss of wages over millions of lifetimes. We lose also untold societal contributions, across all spectrums of human endeavor. And we know that the actual state of the economy is completely misreported in the mainstream media.

The fetus is actually a parasite. As you rid a dog of fleas, you can rid a woman of a blob of tissue.

That blob is a human being, unique in the world. Just as we do not eliminate two year olds for not having grown to their adult height, we cannot eliminate the unborn for not having grown enough to exit the womb. Advancing technology reveals the incredible humanity present from conception in the human baby.

A return to Christian morality in America would be a death knell to liberalism. The more we protect the least among us, the sooner that will be. more>

Life gets a little cheaper - When the U.S. Supreme Court struck down all state laws restricting abortion in 1973, a few wise souls warned the ruling would open up a Pandora's box that would some day lead to state approval of murder of innocents on a broader scale.

You don't have to look at China, where forced abortion and infanticide have resulted in the deaths of more than 100 million, resulting in a major and destabilizing imbalance between the numbers of males and females.

Instead, look to the "enlightened" West, to the so-called "civilized" nations of Europe.

And look not at the statistics, but at the wrenching story of one little girl in England. more>

Mercy Killing in the Netherlands: Euthanasia or Eugenics? - This past year, it was quietly announced that Holland had approved euthanasia for children under twelve. This news alone was unsettling, but then last month came the disturbing disclosure that not only had euthanasia been approved for infants, but had in fact been practiced by doctors for some time. In other words, first adults and now children and infants are slowly being eliminated in the name of "compassion."

The practice has been approved for terminally-ill infants, or those whose suffering is deemed intolerable. Presumably, this includes babies that are premature, developmentally disabled, or physically deformed. This is in marked contrast to the United States, where such infants are kept alive against all odds, using expensive, cutting-edge technology. But the Dutch have apparently decided that these lives are expendable. How long before other "undesirables" are slated for termination? more>

More choosing kids' sex - Practice prompts ethical argument - The Magills are part of a small but growing number of Americans who are selecting the sex of their children, using techniques developed to help couples who are infertile or at risk for having babies with genetic diseases.

The doctors offering the services, as well as some medical ethicists who defend them, argue the procedures make it possible for parents to fulfill a natural desire, harm no one, and enhance the joys of parenthood.

But others say the practice, which is prohibited in many countries, uses expensive medical care for frivolous purposes, destroys some embryos just because they are the "wrong" sex, and promotes gender discrimination. Critics see it as a dangerous first step toward transforming childbirth from a natural process full of surprise and wonder into just another commodity in which a baby's features are picked like options on a new car.

Mother Can Sue Abortion Business Over Daughter's Abortion Death - An Illinois appeals court has ruled that a woman whose 13 year-old daughter died following a botched abortion has the right to file a lawsuit against the abortion business where it was performed.
Dianne Adams initially filed a wrongful death suit related to her daughter Deanna Bell's death in 1994 and, five years later, a jury ruled in favor of the abortion facility.

In 2000, an appellate court reversed the decision and said the judge in the initial case wrongly blocked some evidence from being admitted.

Adams attempted to re-file the case last year, according to an AP story, but a judge ruled too much time had elapsed since Bell's death. The appeals court decision Friday reinstates the lawsuit.

On September 4, Bell had the D&E abortion procedure performed under general anesthesia.

According to court records, Bell was given 150 milligrams (mg) of Brevital as an induction dose and three subsequent maintenance doses of 100 mg, 100 mg, and 50 mg.

Brevital is a fast-acting barbiturate. Recommended doses, according to the medical literature, for a patient of Bell's weight would have been 53 mg to 70 mg as an induction dose and subsequent maintenance doses of 20 mg to 40 mg every four to seven minutes.

Attorneys for Adams argue the high doses caused respiration problems that eventually led to Bell's death.

Bell returned the next day and was given an even higher dose of the anesthesia drugs because she appeared to be nervous and because the extraction procedure to remove laminaria is painful.

After the abortion, while being transferred to the recovery room, staff noticed Bell turned pale and began having significant breathing problems.

The only staff member on hand at the time was a woman who had no medical training. Adams' attorneys say at least two registered nurses should have been with bell during the recovery. more>

Mother Wins Permission to Challenge Abortion Guidelines - A mother-of-five has won permission to challenge guidelines that allow abortions to be carried out on young girls without their parents’ knowledge.

Sue Axon, 50, from Baguley, Manchester, who has two daughters – Amber, 12, and Joy, 15 – was given the go-ahead to seek a High Court judicial review. She had an abortion 20 years ago and later regretted it, saying it made her ill and had a long-term effect on her.

Department of Health guidelines state terminations can take place without parental consent. The guidelines advise doctors that the confidentiality of under-16s must be respected if they want to terminate a pregnancy.

Mrs Axon contends that parents have the legal right to be consulted and that the guidelines are unlawful. more>

Poll: Women say abortion makes life worse - Researcher contends politicians misread their female constituents - A new national poll shows only 16 percent of women believe abortion generally makes women's lives better.

Furthermore, among women who describe themselves as "pro-choice," less than 30 percent believe abortion generally improves women's lives.

"At least one of every four women voters has had an abortion, and most of these women consider it to be an ugly, painful memory," he said. "Most have many regrets about their abortions, even if they believe it to have been their 'only choice.' This is why they don't support the radical agenda of pro-abortion special interest groups. They've been there, done that, and hated it." more>

Pros and Cons of Abortion: The Biggest No Brainer of Our Day? Thirty plus years after the infamous Supreme Court decision in Roe versus Wade and thirty one years after my own timely birth, I sit in awe at the ignorance of a great portion of society...their lack of understanding, their selfishness, and their brazen support of such a horrendous practice as abortion. I guess I should not be surprised that the unregenerate world can support abortion, but what shocks me most is that professing Christians need to consider some sort of pros and cons of abortion list so that they can "make an informed decision". It is a crying shame that we have reached a day when the Bible is not sufficient enough of a guideline for Christians that they feel they must hear the "pros and cons of abortion".

Well, since this seems to be the case, let’s look at some pros and cons of abortion. Lets evaluate them in light of the scriptures and in light of our conclusions based on the whole of scripture and the impeccable character of our God and His expectations for us. I recently viewed a site with one of these lists with the "pros and cons of abortion". I would like to review their statements with my evaluation of them below:

Pros of Abortion

"*Laws against abortion kill women. Even though abortion may be illegal doesn't mean that women won't go through with the abortion. Look at the case of Becky Bell for example. She was an innocent girl that did not want her child and died because of an illegal abortion."

***My Assessment: Yes, people will continue to sin, but we should never sit band condone theirs inn by either verbal support or merely apathy. We certainly should not use the dumb excuse of: "Well, they are just going to do it anyway and at least if abortion is legal, they won't be doing them in dirty back alleys." It is always tragic when a human being loses their life, but if abortion is once again outlawed (as it should be), these people would always be losing their lives in violation of a good, common sense, and compassionate law. If they die breaking the law, then they will die the death of a criminal. But, please keep this in mind: As abortion remains legal these days, many women still die as a result of complications of "clean, safe abortions" (every aborted child dies) and though they are guiltless according to "the laws of the land", they are guilty according to the eternal laws of the God that will judge them. read more>

Red China: Ultrasounds Used to Kill Girls - In China, because of the Communist government’s brutal 25-year one child policy, and since boys are considered more valuable than girls—as they carry on the family name and are expected to care for aging parents—ultrasound machines are employed to determine the sex of the baby. Then, if the baby is a girl, abort her. more>

Revealed: how an abortion puts the next baby at risk - Having an abortion almost doubles a woman's risk of giving birth dangerously early in a later pregnancy, according to research that will provoke fresh debate over the most controversial of all medical procedures.

A French study of 2,837 births - the first to investigate the link between terminations and extremely premature births - found that mothers who had previously had an abortion were 1.7 times more likely to give birth to a baby at less than 28 weeks' gestation. Many babies born this early die soon after birth, and a large number who survive suffer serious disability. more>

Show the American people what an abortion is! - Warning! Horrific images in these photos of aborted babies. From the inception of his pro-life work, Fr. Frank Pavone has been urging the mass media to show the American people what an abortion is. Abortion is a reality which is so horrific that words alone can never convey its meaning.

Fr. Frank serves on the board of the Center for Bioethical Reform, which makes it a priority to share with the nation the world's largest collection of images of actual abortions. In conjunction with that organization, a series of careful analyses of what the pro-life movement can learn from other social reform movements is being prepared.

These images are arranged according to the gestational age of the children who were killed. You will note that below the link to each image is a link to a document signed by a pathologist who attests to the medical accuracy that particular image. Each document was also notarized. This pathologist, Dr. Abigail Allen, worked specifically with the remains of aborted children.

It is especially critical to show people the images of babies aborted in the first trimester. It is in regard to such children, who constitute 90% of abortion victims, that the myth persists that they are not really children at all. more>

Students Protest Princeton Professor Who Advocates Infanticide - More than 100 protesters denounced Princeton University on Saturday for hiring Peter Singer, a philosopher whose extreme views include allowing parents to end the lives of their severely disabled infants.

The 52-year-old academic is widely considered the father of the international animal rights movement yet has argued parents should have the right to euthanize newborn children who have severe handicaps.

In his books, Singer has said that children less than one month old have no human consciousness and do not have the same rights as others. "Killing a defective infant is not morally equivalent to killing a person," he wrote in one book. "Sometimes it is not wrong at all." more>

Surprised lawyer finds Terri Schiavo alert - 1st visit contradicts claims of 'persistent vegetative state' - Despite the widely believed claims of her husband, Terri Schiavo is purposefully interactive, curious and expressive with her parents, according to a surprised lawyer who visited for the first time the brain-damaged Florida woman embroiled in a euthanasia dispute.

After a 45-minute visit Christmas Eve, attorney Barbara Weller concluded Schiavo was so alert that she "should have been gathered around the Christmas dinner table enjoying the holiday with her family." more>

The Embryonic Jesus Story - At this time of year, we focus on Christ's birth, but there is a fascinating incident the Bible describes near the beginning of Jesus' human life, several months prior. It is the Embryonic Jesus Story.

Luke 1 tells about the first person besides Jesus' mother and earthly father who recognized He was extraordinary – Jesus' cousin John, while John was yet a fetus, and Jesus was but an embryo.

When John was a preborn 6-month-old, his Aunt Mary came to visit John's expectant mother Elizabeth, her cousin. Mary was newly pregnant with Jesus.

Luke 1:41 says when Mary greeted Elizabeth, John kicked. Elizabeth told Mary, "The instant I heard your voice, my baby moved in me for joy!" more>

The Empty Cradle Will Rock - How abortion is costing the Democrats voters--literally - More than 40 million legal abortions have been performed and documented in the 30 years since the U.S. Supreme Court declared abortion legal. The debate remains focused on the legality and morality of abortion. What's largely ignored is a factual analysis of the political consequences of 40 million abortions. Consider:

• There were 12,274,368 in the Voting Age Population of 205,815,000 missing from the 2000 presidential election, because of abortions from 1973-82.

• In this year's election, there will be 18,336,576 in the Voting Age Population missing because of abortions between 1972 and 1986.

• In the 2008 election, 24,408,960 in the Voting Age Population will be missing because of abortions between 1973-90.

These numbers will not change. They are based on individual choices made--aggregated nationally--as long as 30 years ago. Look inside these numbers at where the political impact is felt most. Do Democrats realize that millions of Missing Voters--due to the abortion policies they advocate--gave George W. Bush the margin of victory in 2000?

The number of abortions accumulate in size and political impact as the years roll along. Like an avalanche that picks up speed, mass, and power as it thunders down a mountain, the number of Missing Voters from abortion changes the landscape of politics. The absence of the missing voters may not be noticed, but that doesn't mean its political impact disappears. As seen during a famine, what no longer exists becomes as relevant as what does. more>

The Pain of the Unborn Child - What does an unborn child feel during an abortion? While an unborn child cannot verbally express the pain she experiences, all biological indicators suggest unborn children are capable of feeling pain by at least 20 weeks. more>

The third time's a charm - A woman who buries abandoned babies had played California lottery just twice before - All too often, the ring of Debi Faris-Cifelli's cell phone means there is another abandoned newborn at the morgue, another forsaken child for her to name and bury in a shoebox-size coffin under a white cross in the California desert.

Last week, though, Faris-Cifelli — who has had to rely on donations, grants and fund-raisers to give babies a decent burial — got a very different call. She had won the California lottery.

"Maybe it's the children saying, 'Thank you' for taking care of them when nobody else would," Faris-Cifelli said, bubbling with laughter. "It's a gift, and one for which we feel an awesome responsibility."

The money could not come at a better time for Faris-Cifelli and her Garden of Angels, the tiny cemetery in the town of Calimesa where she has buried dozens of tiny children whose mothers didn't hear — or didn't care — about California's safe-haven law. more>

The "Unwanted" Child - Abortion proponents have long capitalized upon the propaganda value of hard cases, such as pregnancies that result from rape and incest. By filtering the subject of abortion through the distorting lens of such situations, supporters of abortion on demand have exploited the sympathy of decent people to advance the notion that a child’s right to life is contingent upon the circumstances of his conception. However, as Dr. Charles Rice of the University of Notre Dame Law School observes, to allow for abortions in the "hard cases" is to say "that the question of which babies will be killed is negotiable." Julie Makimaa is alive today because her mother, who became pregnant with Julie as a result of rape, understood that her child was a non-negotiable blessing.

"It doesn’t matter how I began," explains Julie, who lives with her husband Bob and two teenage children in western Michigan. "What matters is who I will become." Julie is the founder of Fortress International, which works on behalf of women who become pregnant through sexual assault and the children thus conceived. She has offered testimony to Congress, as well as state legislatures in Louisiana, South Carolina, Missouri, and Tennessee. Pro-life leaders in Ireland sought out Julie’s help during that nation’s debate over legalizing abortion. Julie has spoken before school, civic, church, and youth groups across the country, and appeared on numerous radio and television programs. Hers is an eloquent and compelling voice offering a message of hope in the context of the tragedy of sexual assault. more>

Tortured...for being a mother - A woman campaigning against China's stern one-child policy is being tortured in a re-education through labour camp, including being bound hand and foot and suspended in mid-air, a rights group said on Wednesday.

Mao Hengfeng, a Shanghai resident and a mother of two, is serving an 18-month labour camp sentence and has been repeatedly subjected to abusive treatment and severe beatings, Human Rights in China (HRIC) said. more>

Unborn baby pictures fuel abortion debate - Extraordinary pictures of a 12-week-old unborn baby wriggling his legs in the "stepping" motion characteristic of newborns triggered a debate on the ethics of abortion which no one predicted would take centre stage at a general election.

Prof Stuart Campbell, the ultrasound pioneer who captured the images, said yesterday he was "truly staggered" by their impact. more>

When baby has no brain - I remember sitting in the office of the vice president of nursing at the hospital where I worked. She and I began discussing the hospital's induced-labor abortion practice, which I had recently discovered.

But then she surprised me, the first of many Christians to surprise me by their support, and sometimes participation in, abortion. She became defensive about the hospital's abortions practices, particularly in regard to anencephalic babies, because "they have no brains; they're not human." more>

When children become disposable - Charlotte Wyatt is a beautiful baby girl of 11 months who is also terribly ill. Born premature at 26 weeks, she has serious heart and lung problems. She has never left the hospital and is fed through a tube.

In the span of her very short life, she stopped breathing three times. Each time she was resuscitated. But doctors at the treating hospital in England do not want to revive her should her breathing fail a fourth time.

They say keeping her alive is futile and causing suffering. Her parents strongly disagree. They believe Charlotte, who is responsive to them, is not suffering. Their hope is that maybe she would live long enough and become strong enough to one day walk outside and see the sky and the trees. more>

Women having abortions over and over - 33% repeat in Britain, procedure's risks allegedly swept under rug - A dramatic rise in repeat abortions has reinforced fears that women are increasingly having terminations for lifestyle reasons, reports the London Daily Mail.

One in three abortions is now carried out on women who have had at least one before, according to the British Pregnancy Advisory Service. Women between 20 and 24 have taken over from teenagers as the largest age group to have abortions – while only one in 100 abortions is carried out solely because of a medical risk to the baby. more>

Woman Rushed to Hospital After Botched Abortion in Kansas - A woman was rushed to a local hospital Thursday after a botched abortion at the facility of infamous late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller. The abortion business was accused of botching another abortion in September.

With sirens blaring and emergency lights flashing, an ambulance rushed the woman from the abortion facility to Wesley Medical Center Thursday morning.

"They almost caused an accident at the intersection," said Brenna Sullenger, who witnessed the arrival of the ambulance at Wesley. "They were in a big hurry."

Edna Roach, a nurse's assistant who frequently accompanies injured women to the local hospital, was the first staff member of the abortion facility to arrive. Witnesses say she carried what appeared to be medical files into the emergency room.

Cheryl Sullenger also witnessed the scene and said paramedics "very grim and in a very big rush to get the woman inside." more>

Women hating women - The communist government of China is the most bloody-minded government in the history of mankind. Long before tanks were mashing bicycles and students into lifeless red pulp at Tiananmen Square, Chairman Mao's left-wing revolutionaries killed an estimated 35 million people in the Great Leap Forward and the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.

And yet, even these most merciless of men are beginning to recoil at the murderous extremism of the abortionettes now that the feminist logic has finally reached a long-expected milestone. It is no secret that parents traditionally prefer male babies to female – the availability of pre-natal sex identification technology combined with pro-abortion extremism has resulted in a 16 percent shortfall of baby girls from the natural ratio, which approximates 50-50.

To put it into terms that feminists might understand, a girl baby in China earns only 84 cents on the boy baby's dollar. Except in this case, the dear girl isn't out 16 cents of spending money, she's just dead.

Whereas the abortionettes will not suffer any limits on a woman's right to kill her children – no doubt they are still celebrating the overturning of a famous post-natal water abortionist's murder convictions last week – the Chinese National Population and Family Planning Commission, not generally considered to be made up of right-wing religious fanatics, announced: "As a new measure, the commission will start drafting revisions of the Criminal Law in order to ban foetus gender detection and selective abortion other than for legitimate medical purposes." more>

World's Tiniest Baby Doing Well in Chicago - A premature infant believed to be the smallest baby ever to survive was called "a great blessing" Tuesday by her mother, who is preparing to take the little girl and her twin sister home from the hospital.

World's Smallest Baby Goes Home - A little girl who's believed to be the smallest surviving baby in the world has been sent home from the hospital. Rumaisa Rahman was born in September weighing only 8.6 ounces. That's about the size of a cellphone. The baby, named Rumaisa, weighed 8.6 ounces when she was delivered Sept. 19 at Loyola University Medical Center - less than a can of soda. That is 1.3 ounces smaller than the previous record holder, who was born at the same the hospital in 1989, according to hospital spokeswoman Sandra Martinez. more>

 Planned Parenthood Federation - America's Largest Abortion Provider

Abortion Not About Choice: It's About Money - Put in historical perspective, the abortion industry in America has slaughtered seven times as many helpless children as Adolf Hitler did Jews during his infamous Final Solution. What is the difference between Hitler and abortion? The world banned together and stopped Hitler.

These sobering facts cause me to contemplate just why this is happening in a nation founded on morals and values. One simple answer comes to mind. It is done for “the love of money,” which happens to be “the root of all evil.”

With that in mind let’s examine the profits of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s most prominent provider of so-called “abortion rights,” as revealed in its 2003-04 Annual Report.

- Planned Parenthood clinics performed 244,628 surgical abortions, an increase of 6.1 percent. A total 3.5 million surgical abortions have been performed at PP clinics to since 1970.

- Planned Parenthood clinics grossed $302.6 million last year, with $104 million coming from surgical abortions.

- Total PP income for the year was $810 million, with one-third of that, or $265.2 million, coming from public funds given by our elected officials.

- The PP organization has earned net profits for the past 18 years in a row, totaling $538 million.

Meanwhile, private donations to Planned Parenthood dropped for the second time in three years, and the number of PP-operated clinics declined from 866 to 849.

“Increases in abortions, more money from taxpayers’ pockets, and bigger profit margins — all while clinics are closing down and donations are dwindling. That is the state of Planned Parenthood,” said Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League’s watchdog agency STOPP International. more>

Abortions and Profits Up at Planned Parenthood - A pro-life group says Planned Parenthood's latest annual report reveals the "hypocritical nature" of the organization.

"Planned Parenthood claims it seeks to reduce abortion, but its abortion numbers are skyrocketing," said Jim Sedlak, executive director of the American Life League's STOPP International project.

According to Sedlak, Planned Parenthood has performed over 3 million abortions in its own facilities since 1970 - and that includes 227,385 abortions performed in 2002-2003, a 6.7 percent increase over the 213,026 performed in 2001-2002, he said.

In its 2002-2003 annual report, Planned Parenthood reported a profit of $36.6 million, a 300-percent increase over the $12.2 million profit reported the year earlier, STOPP International said. more>

Can the unborn save future generations? - The mothers – with no excuse or reason necessary other than "I don't want it" – could have murdered any of these children legally. But it seems incredulous to me that it can be both ways. If it is not permissible for a father to murder his 18-week-old unborn child by beating-up its mother, then how can it be argued as permissible for the mother – with perhaps less provocation (sarcasm intended) – to do the same?

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Kate Michelman, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry as a whole continue to oppose and lobby against measures under legislative consideration, e.g., "Unborn Victims of Violence Act" renamed the "Laci and Connor Law," when these unborn children are presenting unambiguous proofs contradicting their positions. more>

Condom testing reveals best brands - Planned Parenthood condom performs worst - The consumers group best known for rating cars and washing machines has turned its testing prowess to condoms to find out which ones measure up best and how other birth control methods compare.

A melon-colored model distributed by Planned Parenthood performed the worst, bursting during a test in which the latex condoms were filled with air. more>

Consumer Reports advocates abortion - Trusted magazine analyzes condoms, refers readers to Planned Parenthood to eliminate 'uterine contents' - Consumer Reports, the respected magazine that has advised Americans on everything from new car purchases to which electric can opener to buy, has published a list of birth-control options that includes abortion, complete with a section describing how the procedure gets rid of a pregnant mother's "uterine contents."

The main report, which is available in the February issue and online, analyzes various brands of condoms for strength and reliability.

Along with the condom report, Consumer Reports provides both a comparative guide to other contraceptive methods and a page entitled "Birth control: More and safer choices," which includes discussion of abortion.

Some pro-life activists are shocked at the magazine's promotion of abortion as a birth-control method. more>

Consumer Reports CEO led Planned Parenthood - Revelation comes after story pushing abortion from publication that claims it has 'no agenda' - Despite the mission statement of Consumers Union, which publishes Consumer Reports, stating the organization vows to maintain "independence and impartiality," the president and CEO of the nonprofit once led a state branch of Planned Parenthood.

The revelation comes in the wake of the magazine's recent article pushing abortion as birth control.

As WorldNetDaily reported, Consumer Reports, the respected periodical that has advised Americans on everything from new car purchases to which electric can opener to buy, published in its February 2005 issue a list of birth-control options that includes abortion, complete with a section describing how the procedure gets rid of a pregnant mother's "uterine contents."

Along with an analysis report on condoms, Consumer Reports provides both a comparative guide to other contraceptive methods and a page entitled "Birth control: More and safer choices," which includes discussion of abortion.

Pro-life activists have criticized the magazine for failing to list the downsides and alternatives to abortion, and for referring readers to Planned Parenthood, the nation's No. 1 abortion provider. more>

Gloria Feldt's delusional rant - Just days after stepping down as president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Gloria Feldt is enlightening us as to exactly why pro-abortionists were dealt such a stinging blow on Nov. 2 – it's all John Kerry's fault.

Tapping into some of the anger she apparently never exhausted while overseeing the destruction of more than 1.3 million unborn children over the last eight years, Feldt chastised Kerry for his unclear abortion rhetoric during the presidential campaign. more>

How society enables the abuse of kids - Consider that in Kansas and Indiana the states' chief law enforcement officials have decided to pursue and prosecute child molesters by searching medical records for evidence of rape and child abuse.

Specifically, in Indiana, Attorney General Steve Carter and his Medical Fraud Control Unit want to search the medical records of 12- and 13-year-olds who were victims of child abuse. (In Indiana, anybody under the age of 14 who has sex is, by law, a victim of abuse.)

In Kansas, Attorney General Phill Kline has subpoenaed medical records in an investigation of abortion clinics regarding child rape and illegal late term abortions. (Under Kansas law, when a girl under 14 is pregnant, she has been raped.)

Attorneys General Kline and Carter obviously recognize their duty to investigate such criminal activity to protect the children of their respective states. They also recognize their duty to expose and prosecute those who routinely cover up such crimes.

As you might expect, Planned Parenthood is denouncing the efforts to seize patient medical records from clinics, calling the actions "a coordinated attempt to intimidate health-care providers and patients." In each case, abortion rights advocates object on grounds of privacy.

Ironically, that means the rapists go free under the veil of women's sexual freedom and right to abortion. So instead of protecting the very people the organization supposedly exists to serve, Planned Parenthood is protecting men who abuse women and young girls.

Truth is the reaction of Planned Parenthood isn't a surprise. The surprise is that the so many millions of men and women can be alarmed and outraged by the sexual assault and murder of a 9-year-old little girl like Jessica and not see their contribution. It lies in society's tolerance and individual support of abortion and sexual promiscuity in its myriad forms. In the end, it makes us all partly to blame for what happened to Jessica Lunsford. more>

Humanist Manifesto II (1973) - FIRST: In the best sense, religion may inspire dedication to the highest ethical ideals. The cultivation of moral devotion and creative imagination is an expression of genuine "spiritual" experience and aspiration.
We believe, however, that traditional dogmatic or authoritarian religions that place revelation, God, ritual, or creed above human needs and experience do a disservice to the human species. Any account of nature should pass the tests of scientific evidence; in our judgment, the dogmas and myths of traditional religions do not do so. Even at this late date in human history, certain elementary facts based upon the critical use of scientific reason have to be restated. We find insufficient evidence for belief in the existence of a supernatural; it is either meaningless or irrelevant to the question of survival and fulfillment of the human race. As nontheists, we begin with humans not God, nature not deity. Nature may indeed be broader and deeper than we now know; any new discoveries, however, will but enlarge our knowledge of the natural. ...

In a First, Planned Parenthood Backs Kerry - The political arm of taxpayer-supported Planned Parenthood Federation today threw its support to Sen. John Kerry. It's the first time the group has ever endorsed a candidate for president, according to the Associated Press, and is thus a signal of the importance the polarizing issue will play this year.

In praise of ‘Jesusland’ - As in previous years, Planned Parenthood has been selling greetings cards for abortion proponents filled with seasonal cheer to send to each other: ‘Choice On Earth’, they proclaim. I can just about understand being a proponent of abortion; I find it harder to fathom someone whose obsession with the subject extends to sending out holiday cards on the theme. Especially as, insofar as the Christmas story is relevant to this question, it’s a season to reflect on the potential of every new life.

Two thousand years ago, if a betrothed woman such as Mary became pregnant by a man other than her intended, she was guilty of adultery and liable to stoning. But Joseph, St Matthew tells us, ‘being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily’ — i.e., a quiet divorce. Given the prevailing social climate back then, had they had ‘Choice On Earth’ — abortion on demand — Jesus would have been first in line for it. There would have been no Christ, no Christmas, no New Testament, no lines about ‘peace on earth’ for abortion fetishists to riff off for their holiday slogan. more>

Margaret Sanger: Intellectual Moron (and Founder of Planned Parenthood) - In 1937, Sanger gave a speech on behalf of those ''too inarticulate to speak for themselves.'' In her speech, she said the following about blocking the procreation of so-called undesirables:

“(It) makes possible the spread of scientific knowledge of the elements of sound breeding. It makes possible the creation of a new race; a new generation brought into this world consciously conceived. It makes possible the breeding out of human weeds-the defective and criminal classes-(and) the breeding in of the clean, strong and fit instruments to carry the torch of human destiny.”

Margaret Sanger’s following two-step plan (which she proposed to the U.S. Congress) to establish a ''Parliament of Population'' is also well-documented in the pages of Intellectual Morons:

1. To ''control the intake and output of morons (apparently excluding Sanger), mental defectives, epileptics.''
2. To ''take an inventory of the secondary group such as illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals, prostitutes, dope-fiends; classify them in special departments under government medical protection, and segregate them on farms…''

Sanger then went on to summarize her plea to Congress by saying that ''fifteen or twenty millions of our population would then be organized into soldiers of defense-defending the unborn against their own disabilities.''

Sanger also had a pretty negative view of Australian, Jewish, and Italian families. She called aboriginal Australians ''the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development.'' She said the following of the ''Jewish people and Italian families'':

“(They) are filling the insane asylums, (they) are filling the hospitals and filling our feeble-minded institutions, (they) are the ones the tax payers have to pay for the upkeep of, and they are increasing the budget of the State, the enormous expense of the State is increasing because of the multiplication of the unfit in this country and in the State.”

Is it any wonder that Sanger spoke at a KKK rally in 1926? Is it any wonder that she said that ''The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it''? more>

Planned Parenthood ''Celebrates'' the Season - I recently came across Steven Ertelt’s article on Planned Parenthood’s Christmas cards, or ''Holiday'' cards, if you are so generically and secularly inclined (''Planned Parenthood’s Christmas Cards Ready to Offend Again'' at Lifenews.com). Mr. Ertelt invites his readers at the end of his article to send responses to the organization at: store@ppfa.org.

There seems to be a movement away from acknowledging the purpose of our winter holidays. I have read countless articles citing the actions of the ACLU in its attempt to erase the word ''Christmas'' from the consciousness of public America. And yet, I wonder, what is everyone doing? What is the point of this so-called ''Holiday Season'' or, worse yet, ''Winter Break?'' And do the organizations that deny Christmas, an undoubtedly religious celebration, really deserve all the money they make precisely because of the people who celebrate it? And ought Planned Parenthood to peddle Christmas cards at the same time that it remains not only steadfastly secular, but anti-religious? more>

Planned Parenthood fights order in fraud probe - Pro-life group's undercover work leads to state investigation - Planned Parenthood is on the defensive in Indiana after a pro-life group's undercover work led to a state fraud investigation and a judge's decision ordering the agency to turn over medical records for abortions done on girls under the age of 14. more>

Planned Parenthood Perversity - Can you say “perverse”? Planned Parenthood in Indiana and Kansas is effectively fighting to protect child rapists from potential prosecution in two high-profile legal fights. That an organization devoted to the interests of women finds itself in this position is a cautionary tale of abortion-rights extremism.

In Indiana, the attorney general is seeking the records of girls under the age of 14 who have visited Planned Parenthood clinics. Let that sink in: We’re talking about 12- and 13-year- old girls. It is a crime to have sex with a child under 14 in the state. Under law, individuals with reason to believe a child is a victim of sex abuse are required to report it to the proper authorities. In Kansas, the attorney general is carrying on the same fight (he is also looking for evidence of illegal late-term abortions).

An Indiana judge has just upheld the Indiana attorney general’s request, although the case is under appeal. “The great public interest,” the county superior judge wrote, “in the reporting, investigation and prosecution of child abuse trumps even the patient’s interest in privileged communication with her physician because, in the end, both the patient and the state are benefited by the disclosure.”

The loopiest free-sex advocates might imagine that after sex-ed courses on how to put a condom on a banana, 13-year-old girls blissfully explore their bodies with 13-year-old boys. Put aside that this vision will make most parents gag — it’s not how it works. Teen sex often involves adult men exploiting teen girls. Estimates are that in 60 percent or more of teen births, the father is an adult. A California study found that the fathers in births to junior-high-school mothers were on average nearly 7 years older.

Why would a feminist organization not be eager to cooperate in a fight against the sexual exploitation of young girls? Well, Planned Parenthood represents that wing of the feminist billed as “sex positive.” Although that phrase doesn’t quite capture it. Planned Parenthood is developing the “statutory rape-positive” wing of feminism.

These feminists are unwilling to pass judgment on any sex in any circumstances, don’t care if parents are cut out of the equation entirely, believe the right to an abortion trumps any other consideration, and embrace a notion of privacy so sweeping it includes men who have, under law, raped their young sexual partners. If only Michael Jackson were interested in girls instead of boys, he might, in the right circumstances, have a friend in Planned Parenthood. more>

Planned Parenthood sued for racism - Black ex-worker also claims sexual harassment - Andrew Jones, an African-American who formerly served as project manager of the Community Services/Education Department of the L.A. Planned Parenthood branch, or PPLA, seeks recovery for unlawful termination, racial and sexual harassment, and a failure to pay overtime.

Among his allegations is that PPLA did nothing when one of its employees was referred to as a "nigger."

Additionally, the suit, filed under penalty of perjury, alleges PPLA portrayed African-American males as irresponsible and male employees were regularly referred to as "d--kheads" and other offensive terms by the white, female management. more>

Planned Parenthood's question about size indicates the organization lacks tact - "Planned Parenthood's façade that it is an organization that helps women and children continues to crumble as more people discover their offensive products, which trivialize sexuality and directly target children," said Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League's STOPP International.

Planned Parenthood is selling a 6-inch ruler that poses the sarcastic question, "Does Size Matter?" The ruler then directs children to Teenwire.com, a web site filled with graphic sexual content that many parents find offensive. This web site was recently banned from public libraries in South Dakota.

"Planned Parenthood again shows us that they are not about helping kids, but about forcing their radical agenda on the public," said Sedlak. "These types of materials and the Teenwire website are an attack on the vulnerability of our youth and a vehicle for Planned Parenthood to come between parents and their children." more>

Pro-Life Advocate: Holiday Cards Expose Planned Parenthood's 'Anti-God Nature' - During a season set aside to honor the birth of the Prince of Peace, a federally funded agency that prevents million of children -- and parents -- from experiencing the joy of birth has once again co-opted the Christmas spirit by promoting its line of "Choice on Earth" holiday cards.

The Planned Parenthood website has announced another release of the cards, saying: "'Tis the season to share with family, friends, colleagues, and loved ones the message of 'Choice on Earth.' Place your orders now for the 2004 Holiday Card." Jim Sedlak is executive director of American Life League's STOPP International -- an organization whose mission is simply to cause Planned Parenthood to "close its doors and get out of town," according to the group's website. more>

Rating Consumer Reports - I would say it's about time someone rated Consumer Reports:

Good taste – F
Decency – F
Propriety – F
Morality – F

Those are my grades for the consumer magazine based on its February issue in which it ranks condoms from most effective to least effective, promotes abortion as a birth-control option and suggests killing unborn babies in utero is a safer choice for mothers than bringing them to term.

With this foray into condom-mania and risk-free abortion, Consumer Reports has announced to the world that it has joined the anything-goes, no-consequences sexual revolution where disposing of an unborn baby is described simply as emptying the "uterine contents."

There's no risk at all to the mother in abortion, suggests Consumer Reports. There's no hint of dozens of studies linking abortion to breast cancer. There's no hint of the hundreds of women who have died torturous at the hands of ghouls in white gowns. And, of course, there is no concern for the tens of millions of unborn babies at all stages of development victimized by this hideous, barbaric procedure.

Methods of disposing of unwanted babies are rated just like electric can openers and glove compartment organizers. more>

STOPP International's plan for defeating Planned Parenthood - The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is the nation's largest operator of abortion facilities and has admitted to committing over 3,000,000 post-implantation abortion procedures since it first started doing them in New York state in 1970. In 1993, PPFA operated 938 facilities across the country and announced an aggressive plan to have "2,000 clinics by the year 2000." In order to accomplish this goal, it said it was launching the largest fund raising campaign of its history.

In answer to this threat from Planned Parenthood, STOPP immediately launched an aggressive campaign to halt the spread of Planned Parenthood facilities. This was done through a series of initiatives all aimed at getting people in local communities all across the country to oppose existing PP facilities and prevent the establishment of new ones. As a result of ordinary people rising up against the behemoth, Planned Parenthood not only failed to achieve its stated goal of "2,000 clinics by the year 2000," but actually revealed in the year 2000 that its number of facilities had dropped to 875! more>

T-Shirts That Say ''I Had an Abortion'' - “They have finally arrived! Planned Parenthood is proud to offer yet another t-shirt in our new social fashion line: 'I Had an Abortion' fitted T-shirts are now available. These soft and comfortable fitted tees assert a powerful message in support of women's rights. Order yours for $15 each.''

I think that America has been involved in an unjust war on the unborn for over thirty years.

I think about the night that my wife spent six hours with a woman who was having her second miscarriage. While the young woman was passing the fetus and writhing in pain, she was thinking about the two abortions she had previously. She was also thinking that she would never be able to have a child now that she wanted one. She may have been thinking about how she had been misled by Planned Parenthood and the Women’s Resource Center.

I think about feminists on my campus who violate the civil liberties of groups who wish to provide comfort for those women who need love and support, not condemnation. I think that they need someone who will share the Truth with them after their lives have been destroyed by the lies of Planned Parenthood.

I think about campus feminists who pass out condoms and put Planned Parenthood advertisements in every woman’s bathroom stall on campus.

I think about my failed efforts to get campus feminists to debate the abortion issue on our campus. I think about a North Carolina chapter of Planned Parenthood that declined a campus debate on abortion saying, ''It is our policy not to debate the abortion issue.''

I think about the early feminists, the true feminists, like Susan B. Anthony, who were steadfastly opposed to abortion...

NOW you know what I think.

'The March for Women' lies - Planned Parenthood's "March for Women's Lives" in New York will take place later this month, showcasing Elizabeth Cavendish, Gloria Feldt and the coalition of the catlike pro-abortionists. They will be lacing up their shoes, putting great big grins on their faces and marching in happy support of the right of a pregnant woman to have her unborn infant killed. Somehow, even if you are not pro-life, the grins and shouts will seem out of place and almost promiscuous in the face of such a personal, moral, and serious issue.

You can be assured that words such as "right wing extremists" and "anti-woman agenda" coupled with phrases like "it's your body" and "it's your choice" will be used with vigor and venom. The old "it's-just-a-blob-of-tissue" mantra will most likely be avoided because that lie has already been exposed through pictures, films and the newest ultrasound technology. Planned Parenthood and their supporters would be wise to skip the scientific side completely, and they know it. Instead, you can count on them talking endlessly about the woman; about how it is her choice, her sexual life, her body. The goal of the march, as listed on Planned Parenthood's website, is "to make sure that issues of reproductive health ... are part of the national political dialogue." more>

The predators of Planned Parenthood - Planned Parenthood's outspoken activists remain stone-cold silent about Holly Patterson. She's the teenager who died of tragic complications from taking the abortion drug cocktail RU-486, which she obtained from a northern California Planned Parenthood clinic in September. Holly and her unborn child suffered a painful, bloody and prolonged death.

Patterson was seven weeks pregnant when she received the chemical abortion regimen. After seven days and two desperate trips to a hospital emergency room seeking help for intense cramping and bleeding, she succumbed to "septic shock, due to endomyometritis (inflammation) due to therapeutic, drug-induced abortion," according to an Alameda County coroner's report.

While Patterson's family mourns and the Food and Drug Administration investigates, Planned Parenthood continues to dispense the abortion kill pills to pregnant teens – and it continues to entice young people to its abortion clinics with a glitzy, MTV-like website offering "sexuality and relationship info you can trust." Called "Teenwire.com," the Planned Parenthood site is chock-full of colorful graphics, hip jargon, voluminous health advice, and lots of exclamation points:

"Check out our interactive color diagrams of female and male anatomy!"
"SEX TALK LIVE!"
"Got Lube?"
"I want both guys!"
"MASTURBATION: Go there!"

Amid explicit discussions of "dry humping," oral sex, masturbation and encouragement for "queer and questioning" teens, the Teenwire.com site issues a stern note to parents who might be trying to monitor what kind of sex-education propaganda their kids are reading. Planned Parenthood lectures mothers and fathers that "this website is for teens. This is their place. Take a look around the site if you like, but please do not register on the site." more>

Truth or consequence - If you believe in conspiracies (which, of course, none of us do!), look at these facts and see if one of those conspiracy-minded persons could find something here:

Planned Parenthood Federation of America bills itself as the world's largest voluntary family planning organization. In fact, on its website, PPFA states that "In many communities around the world, Planned Parenthood is the only source of affordable, quality reproductive health care services and information" (emphasis added).

If condoms are used and fail, pregnancy can – and often does – occur.

Abortion is heralded by PPFA as a "solution" for unwanted pregnancy.

PPFA's annual report for 2003-2004 shows that more than one-third of its annual income comes from abortions.

PPFA is consistently critical of abstinence education as a solution for sexual health and behavior issues, while promoting so-called "safe sex." According to PPFA's website, Condoms are an effective, inexpensive form of birth control."

A recent study by the independent testing service of Consumers Union, as reported in Consumer Reports magazine, February 2005, evaluated the performance of 23 kinds of latex condoms.

Three condom types distributed by PPFA were tested. Those condoms finished 14th, 22nd, and 23rd (again, out of 23 types tested). In fact, the PPFA condoms that ranked 22nd and 23rd were the only condoms rated "poor" on strength. more>

 NARAL / NOW / et al.

Abortion and the Democrats: Why the Left Is Dying - The National Abortion Rights Action League's youth coalition, Generation Pro-Choice, dispatched an email this week with the headline "Rumors of Gen Pro-Choicers demise are greatly exaggerated." Interestingly, it didn't say that the "rumors" were false, only that they were exaggerated. It is increasingly clear to NARAL, though subtly expressed, that the demise of the Left is imminent.

NARAL's "Generation Pro-Choice" is dying because liberals are birthing fewer children. James Pinkerton recently contended in Newsday that "the left has birth-controlled, aborted and maybe also gay-libbed itself into a smaller role in American society." Overall, the fertility rate in Kerry states is around 12 percent lower than in Bush states. The Economist reports that in the ultra-liberal state of Vermont, the annual fertility rate is 49 children for every 1,000 women of childbearing age. But in the heavily pro-Bush state of Utah, nearly twice as many children per 1,000 child-bearing-aged women are being born. Of every 1,000 Utah women, 91 children are born. more>

Big Infanticide - Between the years 1973 and 2003, approximately 44,670,812 abortions were performed in the United States. An estimated 435,000 Americans die each year from tobacco-related illnesses. In other words, approximately 1,489,027 are killed each year by Big Infanticide, while only 435,000 are killed by Big Tobacco!

Millions of dollars are spent by our government to warn us about the dangers of Big Tobacco. Programs in our schools teach children to fear Big Tobacco. Taxes are raised continually to drive Big Tobacco out of business. Movies are made about the evils of Big Tobacco. Lawyers sue Big Tobacco on behalf of their supposed victims. States sue Big Tobacco. Just this week, ''After five years of legal wrangling, the nation's largest cigarette-makers are meeting federal lawyers in court for the trial phase of the government's record $280 billion civil racketeering suit against the tobacco industry,'' the Associated Press reports.
Abortion is a legal practice, and according to Roe vs. Wade, a right guaranteed to Americans. Isn't tobacco use and the sale of tobacco also legal? Don't we have a right to use tobacco? Why is Big Tobacco hated, but Big Infanticide celebrated?

The reason for such disparity is that Big Infanticide has better public relations. Groups like the National Organization of Women, Planned Parenthood, and the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) have spent the past four decades lobbying Congress, running relentless advertising campaigns, and co-opting public school curriculums. Big Infanticide has convinced much of America that the babies it kills are not even real, live human beings. But, so what if they are, it is a choice, a right guaranteed to women!

Recently, Planned Parenthood issued a T-shirt bearing the slogan, ''I had an abortion.'' The goal of this activist wear was to make such a statement so commonplace that it would carry no stigma. To Big Infanticide, killing an unwanted child is as innocent a deed as taking out the trash. In fact, they see those actions as very similar. more>

But let them kill 'it' anyway - Kerry is the first prominent pro-abortion politician I can remember admitting that life begins at conception. In fact, I don't remember any pro-abortion person making that admission – to himself, much less to the public.

Indeed, with the breathtaking scientific and technological advances – such as the discovery that a baby in the womb smiles and feels painit's practically inevitable that the pro-aborts will be forced to abandon that argument.

In fact, one can detect from the militancy of pro-abortion radicals that to them, at least, the focus is not on what's inside the womb – whether it's a baby or a potential life. It's all about power, the unfettered prerogative of women to do as they please, even if it means killing an innocent child inside their womb. more>

Gov. Howard Dean NARAL Pro-Choice America Dinner Washington, DC January 21, 2003 - "You know we all have our reasons for running. I'm running because I don't like extremism, and I think extremism has taken over our country. [applause].

I'm going to talk to you as a governor and as a doctor tonight, but I was thinking as I was listening to the four speakers how much is at stake.

Now Vermont is the promised land for you folks [laughter]. I'm the governor, I was the governor up 'til last week. I served on the board of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England for five years.

Keynote Address of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on the 31st Anniversary of Roe v.

With their beliefs in hand, they are chipping away at reproductive rights, at privacy rights, and at progress. That is their goal.

You - the people right here in this room - are the ones with the power to stop them. You have that power because you are the trained ear. You understand what their policies really mean. You understand the scope of this battle. And, you are not asleep. You have a great responsibility - to wake up this country.

It falls to you to make people aware that we are one Supreme Court nominee away from overturning Roe v. Wade; One Supreme Court Justice away from throwing privacy rights to the wind; One Supreme Court Justice away from a world where the beliefs of a few will dominate the many.

NARAL: Scalia Nomination For Chief Justice Must Be Stopped - Radical pro-abortion group NARAL warned its members that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia would be President George W. Bush's choice to replace ailing Chief Justice William Rehnquist when he decides to retire, and they want to "stop this nomination before it's even announced."

In an e-mail to supporters on Saturday, NARAL said "rumors are flying" that the "extreme far-right" Scalia will be chosen by Bush to replace Rehnquist and they are not pleased with this at all.

"Justice Scalia is out of step with the American people and is one of the Court's most virulent opponents of a woman's right to choose," NARAL wrote to supporters regarding Scalia's previous court opinions on the issue of abortion. more>

New NARAL President May Have Falsified Battle With Catholic Church - New NARAL president Nancy Keenan is finding herself in hot water for possibly exaggerating claims that she "stood up" to pressure from the Catholic Church in Montana after she spoke publicly at a pro-abortion rally fifteen years ago. more>

Pro-choice propaganda is failing! - When NARAL Pro-Choice America announced several days ago it was spending $3 million to launch a nationwide pro-abortion ad campaign, I thought: "Big deal."

I'm not complaining. NARAL is smart. But why are pro-aborts pumping out their propaganda so fiercely now?

Obviously, they are frightened out of their bloody minds over the reportedly imminent Supreme Court vacancies. Their success began in the courts, and most of their strength depends on the courts. NARAL's "ad campaign" is aimed at the political power brokers.

Everyone can pull out a poll showing their side is winning, but how about a poll sponsored by former Planned Parenthood president Faye Waddleton that she says carries "alarming news" about our views on abortion?

The center hired Princeton Survey Research Associates to conduct a two-year "groundbreaking" survey of American women, and the results of the poll were not good for their side. Women ranked abortion rights as number 11 out of 12 on their list of priorities.

In fact, the poll showed declining support for abortion rights. Only 30 percent of those surveyed believe abortion should be generally available, and a whopping 51 percent say abortion should only be available in cases of rape, incest, life of the mother, or not at all.

The Democrat Party has increasingly stood for the "right" to abort – so much so that abortion must now be considered its No. 1 issue. The Party opened the door to pro-aborts and has now been overrun by them, sustained by abortion-industry money. more>

Probing the judges - On May 5, the U.S. Judicial Conference in Washington received a request from a man named Mike Rice from Oakland, Calif., for the financial disclosure records of U.S. Appeals Court Judge Edith Jones (5th Circuit) of Houston. A 20-year veteran on the bench, Jones is a perennial possibility for the U.S. Supreme Court. The demand for her personal records is part of a major intelligence raid preceding momentous confirmation fights in the Senate.

Jones was not alone as a target, and Rice is not just a nosy citizen. He and Craig Varoga, a former aide to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, are partners in a California political consulting firm. Their May 5 petition requested financial information on 30 appellate judges in all but one of the country's judicial circuits, including nine widely mentioned Supreme Court possibilities. Varoga & Rice's client: NARAL Pro-Choice America. more>

Vatican warns that feminism threatens families - The Vatican assailed radical feminism for what it views as efforts to erase differences between men and women, warning in a document released Saturday that the movement threatens the traditional family based on a mother and a father.

Such a push for equality, the Vatican said, makes "homosexuality and heterosexuality virtually equivalent, in a new model of polymorphous sexuality."

Legislation & Politics / Ban on Partial Birth Abortions / Born-Alive Infants Protection Act / Unborn Victims of Violence Act / Voting Records

A dark day in history - On this date 29 years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court made one of its worst decisions in history. You've heard it said hundreds of times since, that the Roe v. Wade ruling legalized abortion in America. That is not true.

What the court actually did was overturn infanticide and homicide laws in all 50 states, exceeding all constitutional authority by attempting to legislate – a power vested only in the Congress.

If you doubt what I am saying, just read the decision for yourself, sometime. It's a ruling, that, when read between the lines, reveals its racist origins. It's a ruling by "elites" for "elites." It's a ruling designed to promote population control. It had nothing to do with the law in 1973, yet it has, by default, become the "law of the land" today. more>

A new federal move to limit teen abortions - The House considers new out-of-state restrictions - The bill, called the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, or CIANA, would make it a federal offense to transport a minor across state lines for an abortion in order to evade a parental notification law, unless she has obtained a waiver from a judge. The bill would also require a doctor to notify a minor's parent before performing an abortion, if that girl is a resident of another state. The second part also contains provisions that allow a minor to get around parental notification.


In contrast with the ban on so-called "partial-birth abortions," which is not in effect as it faces continued court action, legal experts say that the new teen abortion restrictions have a much better chance of becoming the law of the land and would have broad impact.

A rock and a hard place - Democratic leaders try to oppose abortion even as they support it - The Democrats, apres le deluge de 2004, are tinkering with a new approach to abortion rhetoric. This is to be distinguished, of course, from a new approach to abortion. more>

Abortion accuracy - In a 2004 October surprise, just before President George W. Bush’s re-election, the religious left publication Sojourners published figures indicating that the number of abortions in the U.S. had gone up 25 percent during President Bush’s first term in office. That increase was shouted from the media rooftops as uncontested fact; even recently in two high-profile interviews last week –– Howard Dean on NBC’s Meet the Press with Tim Russert and Hillary Clinton on CNN’s Inside Politics with Judy Woodruff.

Then, the Left’s Planned Parenthood think tank, the Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), released a comprehensive study of 43 states indicating that both the number and the rate of abortions were down by around 1 percent in 2001 and again in 2002.

Abortion and the Democrats: Why the Left Is Dying - The National Abortion Rights Action League's youth coalition, Generation Pro-Choice, dispatched an email this week with the headline "Rumors of Gen Pro-Choicers demise are greatly exaggerated."

Abortion foe is target of pranksters - Pranksters have targeted Bozeman state Rep. Roger Koopman with phony pizza delivery orders and harassing telephone calls after the lawmaker publicly spoke about abortion legislation he intends to introduce, Koopman said Tuesday.

Koopman, who reported the pizza orders to police Monday, has a requested a bill that would require death certificates for fetuses aborted at 20 weeks or earlier. Current state law requires certificates for fetuses that die after 20 weeks. Koopman has said he believes the requirement would make some women think harder about having an abortion. more>

Analyzing the Effects of State Legislation on the Incidence of Abortion During the 1990s - The 1990s saw both the election and re-election of a "pro-choice" President. However, the "pro-life" movement made considerable gains at the state and local levels. Survey data indicate that by the end of the decade, more people supported restrictions on abortion and fewer supported discretionary abortion.

Meanwhile, the actual number of abortions declined during the decade. For the 46 states reporting data to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in both 1990 and 1999, the number of abortions fell from 1,035,5734 to 854,416,5 a decline of 17.4 percent. This decline translates into a reduction in the abortion rate from 20.61 to 16.62 abortions per 1,000 women between the ages of 15 and 44.6. more>

Anxiety Over Abortion - Pro-choice Democrats eye a more restrictive approach to abortion as one way to gain ground at the polls - The week after Thanksgiving, dozens of Democratic Party loyalists gathered at AFL-CIO headquarters for a closed-door confab on the election. John Kerry dropped by to thank members of the liberal 527 coalition America Votes. When Ellen Malcolm, president of the pro-choice political network EMILY's List, asked about the future direction of the party, Kerry tackled one of the Democrats' core tenets: abortion rights. He told the group they needed new ways to make people understand they didn't like abortion. Democrats also needed to welcome more pro-life candidates into the party, he said. "There was a gasp in the room," says Nancy Keenan, the new president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. more>

Bill requires ultrasound prior to an abortion - All women seeking abortions would be required to submit to ultrasound procedures under legislation being taken up this week in the state Senate.

The bill, pushed by abortion opponents, is the latest test of lawmakers' personal beliefs on the sensitive issue. It passed the House on a 69-37 vote last week.

Ultrasound would become an additional mandate in Michigan's informed consent law, which requires women considering abortions to receive medically accurate information before ending their pregnancies. A diagnostic technique, ultrasound produces a fuzzy, TV-like image of the fetus inside the mother's womb.

Doctors and nurses would have to offer abortion seekers the opportunity to view these images. The expectant mothers, however, would not be required to look at them.

Gov. Jennifer Granholm, whose signature would be required to make the bill law, doesn't support it as passed by the House. more>

California Attorney General: Schools Can Hide Student Abortions - Responding to efforts around the state to protect parents' rights, California's top attorney has determined that schools are not required to tell parents when a student leaves school to obtain "confidential medical services," such as an abortion. more>

Can Democrats be pro-life? - Election losses wonderfully concentrate the minds of politicians. As did November 2004. Many Democrats seem to realize that "it's the values, stupid." Candidates such as presidential nominee John Kerry don't share the views of the majority of Americans on cultural and social issues. Worse, many liberal elites demonstrate ostentatious contempt for those opinions.

Being pro-life has been political death for any Democrat with national aspirations. Many on the left are unable to even contemplate a legitimate argument against legal abortion.

The satirical weblog "BlameBush!" recently seemed to speak for some abortion activists when it opined that "we must protect a Woman's Right to Choose and err on the side of inhumanity." more>

Can the unborn save future generations? - The mothers – with no excuse or reason necessary other than "I don't want it" – could have murdered any of these children legally. But it seems incredulous to me that it can be both ways. If it is not permissible for a father to murder his 18-week-old unborn child by beating-up its mother, then how can it be argued as permissible for the mother – with perhaps less provocation (sarcasm intended) – to do the same?

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Kate Michelman, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry as a whole continue to oppose and lobby against measures under legislative consideration, e.g., "Unborn Victims of Violence Act" renamed the "Laci and Connor Law," when these unborn children are presenting unambiguous proofs contradicting their positions. more>

Dean of Abortion - As Vermont pro-lifers know well, Howard Dean is pro-abortion to the hilt and has no use for pro-lifers. During the Democratic primary I interviewed Mary Hahn Beerworth, the executive director of the Vermont Right To Life Committee. "There is no abortion that Governor Dean doesn't think is a good idea and doesn't think the government should pay for," she said. "There is no more pro-abortion a politician in America." She recalled the time Dean refused to talk to Vermont pro-lifers because, as he put it on a Vermont talk show, he didn't want to meet with common criminals.

Under Dean, Vermont climbed to the top of the nation in rate of abortion. In 1992, Vermont averaged 359 abortions for every 1,000 live births. Dean instituted a "Dr. Dynasaur" program -- which he would tout on local televisions ads with a stethoscope around his neck -- that had a sickening provision in it: low-income mothers could claim their unborn child for eligibility in the program, then once eligible they would receive funds with which to abort that same child.
more>

Dr. Howard Dean and Abortion - Dr. Dean's work for Planned Parenthood invites further journalistic scrutiny. Is it true he never performed an abortion? Never even assisted at one? Somehow along the way he gained a knowledge of abortion procedures, according to Vermont Magazine in 1998. How did he learn them?

Surely Dean will at least take credit for abortion referrals. Recall his NARAL dinner speech last year where, in a attempt to score a debating point against parental notification laws, he described an occasion in his medical office where he lent a sympathetic ear to a 12-year-old who had been impregnated by her father. Under questioning from NBC's Tim Russert, Dean had to admit his incest story was bogus. The girl's father wasn't involved. Russert: "…when you told the story, you knew otherwise." Dean: "That's right." Russert: "Why didn't you say that?" Dean: "Because it didn't make any difference."(It would have made a difference for his argument. He needed the incest fabrication to punctuate the story with the line: "You explain that to the American people who think that parental notification is a good idea.") more>

Democrats eye softer image on abortion - Leaders urge more welcome for opponents - Leading Democrats, stung by election losses, are signaling they want the party to embrace antiabortion voters and candidates, softening the image of the party from one fiercely defensive of abortion rights to one that acknowledges the moral and religious qualms some Americans have about the issue. more>

Dems' fake to the right on abortion - Democrats must recruit pro-life voters if they plan to become the majority party again. So stated staunch abortion advocate John Kerry while addressing party supporters shortly after Thanksgiving at the AFL-CIO headquarters in Washington, D.C.

FDA poised to approve pedophile thrill pill - Tuesday an FDA joint committee recommended that Plan B, an emergency contraceptive, be approved for sale without prescription. The final FDA decision is expected in February. These sad dupes support easily accessible ECs to have yet one more way to avoid the consequences of illicit sex.

That is precisely the reason pedophiles support easily accessible ECs.

Sexual predators would welcome this tool to keep assaults of stepdaughters, nieces, daughters of friends, or infatuated students hidden, storing a stash of ECs in their bedroom drawer or pocket to give their victim after each rape. No pregnancy, no evidence. more>

From fetus to baby - In a spectacular murder case in Missouri, Lisa Montgomery strangled to death Bobbie Jo Stinnett, who was eight months pregnant. Montgomery cut open Stinnett's womb and kidnapped her child. This is a horrific crime that, like the Scott Peterson case, opens an uncomfortable window into our culture's tortured reasoning on anything related to unborn life.

During the coverage of the crime, the status of the Bobbie Jo Stinnett's unborn girl steadily changed. All at once on AOL News during the weekend, there were headlines tracking events in the case: "Woman Slain, Fetus Stolen"; "Woman Arrested, Baby Returned in Bizarre Murder"; "Infant in Good Health." Note how a "fetus" -- something for which American law and culture has very little respect -- was somehow instantly transformed into a "baby" and "infant" -- for which we have the highest respect. By what strange alchemy does that happen? more>

Hillary Clinton on Abortion - Voted NO on criminal penalty for harming unborn fetus during other crime.
Bill would make it a criminal offense to harm or kill a fetus during the commission of a violent crime. The measure would set criminal penalties, the same as those that would apply if harm or death happened to the pregnant woman, for those who harm a fetus. It is not required that the individual have prior knowledge of the pregnancy or intent to harm the fetus. This bill prohibits the death penalty from being imposed for such an offense. The bill states that its provisions should not be interpreted to apply a woman's actions with respect to her pregnancy.
Reference: Unborn Victims of Violence Act; Bill S.1019/HR.1997 ; vote number 2004-63 on Mar 25, 2004

S. 3 As Amended; Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003. Vote to pass a bill banning a medical procedure, which is commonly known as "partial-birth" abortion. Those who performed this procedure would then face fines and up to two years in prison, the women to whom this procedure is performed on are not held criminally liable. This bill would make the exception for cases in which a women's life is in danger, not for cases where a women's health is in danger.

How does 'moderating pro-choice position' translate? - It was in the Dallas airport early last month that I first sensed a change in the wind. At a news stand, I noticed Texas Monthly magazine promoting an article on its cover titled, "Am I really Pro-choice?"

... Now is the time to ask pro-abortion legislators to sponsor as well as vote for pro-life legislation in 2005, most of which has public support. If Democrats mean what they say, they must prove it. Now. And don't forget pro-abort Republicans. more>

How lying marketers sold Roe v. Wade to America - "Women must have control over their own bodies."

"Safe and legal abortion is every woman's right."

"Who decides? You decide!"

"Abortion is a personal decision between a woman and her doctor."

"Who will make this most personal decision of a woman's life? Will women decide, or will the politicians and bureaucrats in Washington?"

"Freedom of choice – a basic American right."

In one of the most successful marketing campaigns in modern political history, the "abortion rights movement" – with all of its emotionally compelling catch-phrases and powerful political slogans – has succeeded in turning what once was a heinous crime into a fiercely defended constitutional right.

During the tumultuous 1960s, after centuries of legal prohibition and moral condemnation of abortion, a handful of dedicated activists launched an unprecedented marketing campaign. Their aim was twofold: first, to capture the news media and thus public opinion, and then, to change the nation's abortion laws. more>

If the Frame Fits... - In the wake of the 2004 election, Democrats have embarked on an orgy of what the linguist George Lakoff calls "reframing"--repositioning their policies linguistically to give them mass moral appeal. Prime candidate for a values makeover? Abortion, of course. more>

'Jane Roe' appeals to Supreme Court - Plaintiff in landmark abortion case seeking to overturn 1973 decision - The woman known as "Roe" in the landmark case that struck down all state laws restricting abortion is appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn its 1973 decision.

As WorldNetDaily reported, Norma McCorvey began a quest in 2003 to reopen the case, based on changes in law and new scientific research that make the prior decision "no longer just." She cites the sworn testimony of more than 1,000 women who say they were hurt by abortion. more>

Judgment awarded in abortion-breast cancer case - 1st of its kind against clinic for failing to inform patient of increased risk - For the first time, an abortion clinic accepted an order of judgment for performing the procedure without informing the patient of psychological risks and increased risk of breast cancer.

The lawsuit against the All Women's Health Services clinic in Portland, Ore., was the second of its kind in the U.S. to be successfully prosecuted but the first to obtain a judgment. more>

Loopholes and Health Threats: The Deus ex Machina of American Abortion - Unless something changes, the Supreme Court will let the abortion lobby use it yet again, this time to “legitimately” invalidate parental notification laws. In a few short years, there will be another new “right” added to the American vocabulary, which will be placed right in line behind the “right” to a partial birth abortion: A minor’s guarantee to abortion on demand without parental notification.

The answer to this problem is absurdly simple and yet extremely difficult (then again, what isn’t?). Pro-lifers on all levels of the fight must demand a clear, medical definition of what constitutes a threat to a mother’s life. This definition would have to be realistic, but at the same time clearly exclude abortions for whim, convenience, and/or vague fear. Since this loophole is one of the real lifelines of the entire American abortion industry and movement, expect the entire Pro-Death establishment to viciously oppose any attempts to close it. more>

Massachusetts : HRL Runs Drive for Abortion Refund - Harvard Right to Life (HRL) began a drive on Monday to encourage students to request a small but symbolic refund for the portion of their University Health Services (UHS) fee used to fund abortions.

HRL placed cards in freshman mailboxes informing them of the $1 refund and tabled at upper-class dining halls this week.

This marks the seventh year that HRL has publicized the refund policy since 1998, when Daniel H. Choi ’94 found the provision about abortion in the UHS handbook and decided to let others know about it.

The refund—based upon the combined cost of all abortions divided by the number of people paying health fees—is down from $1.09 last year, according to UHS Director David S. Rosenthal.

HRL President Catherine C. Roche ’06 stressed the symbolism of the gesture, despite the small size of the refund. “I don’t feel that people should have to spend their hard earned money on something that they oppose,” she said. more>

Mississippi tries everything to curb abortions - For both sides in the national debate over abortion, Mississippi has become Exhibit A: It is widely considered the state with the most thorough arsenal of laws, policies and public pressure aimed at curtailing the procedure.

Nurse fired for refusing to give abortion pill - Files suit claiming she was acting on her religious beliefs - A nurse is suing a hospital that fired her after she refused to administer the "morning after" abortion pill.

Tni Lemly says the St. Tammany Parish Hospital in Louisiana violated the state's Employment Discrimination Law.

Lemly, represented by the non-profit Alliance Defense Fund, says she had informed hospital supervisory staff that she objected to administering the abortion pill because of her sincerely held religious beliefs.

The hospital responded by firing her from her full-time position and reducing her to part-time status, working only three days a week. The demotion to part-time status caused a substantial reduction in her pay as well as loss of employee benefits. more>

Pro-aborts' desperate ploy - Unless you've spent the last several years stranded on a deserted island, you probably know of at least some of the medical miracles provided by stem-cell research.

Pro-life agenda advances - The last session of Congress was very successful for the pro-life movement. Two significant pieces of legislation -- the Partial Birth Abortion Ban and the Unborn Victims of Violence Act -- were signed into law by President Bush. It took years -- even decades -- of struggle on the part of pro-life activists to achieve those successes.

Key items on the agenda are the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act, the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act and the Human Cloning Ban.

Pro-lifer charged for fetus display - Attorney sees contradiction in trial for 'exposing a dead body' - An activist who had a dead fetus in a jar at an anti-abortion rally is facing charges for keeping and exposing a dead body or body part.

Probing the judges - On May 5, the U.S. Judicial Conference in Washington received a request from a man named Mike Rice from Oakland, Calif., for the financial disclosure records of U.S. Appeals Court Judge Edith Jones (5th Circuit) of Houston. A 20-year veteran on the bench, Jones is a perennial possibility for the U.S. Supreme Court. The demand for her personal records is part of a major intelligence raid preceding momentous confirmation fights in the Senate.

Jones was not alone as a target, and Rice is not just a nosy citizen. He and Craig Varoga, a former aide to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, are partners in a California political consulting firm. Their May 5 petition requested financial information on 30 appellate judges in all but one of the country's judicial circuits, including nine widely mentioned Supreme Court possibilities. Varoga & Rice's client: NARAL Pro-Choice America. more>

Sprinting toward Gehenna - ... One wonders why so many Jews in the media elite wish to see America move toward a more perfectly secular society, considering that they will doubtless be the first to be victimized should they ever get their wish.

Or consider the abortionettes, who hold sacred a woman's right to murder. (That this goes well beyond a woman's right to her own body can be seen in the feminist support for women who kill sleeping men "in self-defense," murderous mothers and young women committing Singerian infanticide.) Now that sex-selection technology is on the verge of widespread availability, abortionettes are appalled at the notion that a disproportionate number of unborn baby girls will be slaughtered. There is a silver lining in this, though, as we'll likely be inflicted with far fewer abortionettes in the future. more>

Supreme Court to Review Abortion Law - The Supreme Court, re-entering the politically charged abortion debate, agreed Monday to hear a state appeal seeking to reinstate a law requiring parental notification before minors can terminate their pregnancies.

Justices will review a lower court ruling that struck down New Hampshire's parental notification law. (search) The Boston-based 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (search) said the 2003 law was unconstitutional because it didn't provide an exception to protect the minor's health in the event of a medical emergency. more>

The Dems’ Pro-Life Gambit - Journalists in Washington have been buzzing for days over reports that House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is backing former Indiana Rep. Tim Roemer for Democratic National Committee chairman.

That's only the latest is a series of signals suggesting that the Democratic Party is starting to rethink abortion politics. After years of being implacably pro-choice and scornful of anyone who disagreed, Democrats are beginning to realize that their position may have been hurting them more than they realized. more>

The filibuster and Roe v. Wade - The Roe v. Wade decision was allegedly made in the spirit of American freedom. However, time has shown that this was mistaken and ill advised. The president is showing needed leadership in the judges he is nominating.

The new 'pro-choice' law that pro-aborts hate - Abortion zealots showed their true colors (blood-red and cash-green) last week when they launched an assault against a new pro-choice law.

The Hyde-Weldon Conscience Protection Amendment, signed by President Bush into law Dec. 8 as part of the 2005 Health & Human Services appropriations bill, guarantees freedom of choice to medical professionals, hospitals and health insurers to not participate in abortion if that is their preference.

You would think those claiming to be "pro-choice" would welcome a law that expands abortion alternatives for medical professionals and organizations – to opt out if that is their preference.

But, of course, no. Actually, it was "pro-force" abortion aggressors stalking the medical community in the first place who made the conscience protection amendment necessary. more>

The worms turned - Two points of review:
1. The battle over judicial nominees is a battle within a war. At the center of this war is abortion, a point even the mainstream media acknowledges.
2. Judges are integral combatants in this war, because legalized abortion is and always has been an illegitimate product of the courts, and only the courts are sustaining it.

Turning back the clock - It is celebrated as a giant step forward. In fact, it is a great leap backward to ancient pagan practice. Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion 32 years ago this month, not only rejected state laws against abortion, but a 2,000 year-old Christian ethic that holds human life sacred. In its place, the Court substituted the pagan philosophy that prevailed in ancient Greece and Rome. more>

U.S. says China forces abortions - Despite some changes, China's one-child family planning program remains a source of coercion, forced abortions, infanticide and perilously imbalanced boy-girl ratios, State Department officials said Tuesday.

When Harry Met Roe - The new Senate minority leader is no pro-lifer - JOE KLEIN, WRITING IN Time, says Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid is "pro-life." The New York Times quotes Washington lobbyist Frank Fahrenkopf, the former Republican national chairman, as saying about Reid, "He's pro-life." In the Washington Post, after Reid was elevated to his leadership post, columnist E.J. Dionne labeled him "an opponent of abortion rights." And as far back as 1997, Post political writer David Broder wrote that Reid is "pro-life." So it's all but unanimous in the press that the Nevada senator is a serious foe of legalized abortion.

But is he really? more>

Wrestling with abortion stance - Democrats may redefine their position, a key theme of the contest to head party's national committee - After long defining itself as an undisputed defender of abortion rights, the Democratic Party is locked in an internal struggle over whether to redefine its position to appeal to a broader array of voters.

The fight is a central theme of the contest to head the Democratic National Committee between two leading candidates: former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who supports abortion rights, and former Indiana Rep. Tim Roemer, an abortion foe who argues that the party cannot rebound from its losses in November unless it shows more tolerance on one of society's most emotional conflicts.

 Ban on Partial Birth Abortion Act - S.3

Death March 2004 - A very large storm is brewing in D.C. and it has nothing to do with the weather. For the first time, a coalition of seven organizations is joining forces to bring a hoped-for 800,000 women to march on the Mall in D.C. in support of abortion rights. There is a great sense of urgency to this march in response to recent pro-life victories such as the ban on partial-birth abortion and the Unborn Victims of Violence Act.

Advocates include all the usual groups such as the National Organization for Women, The American Civil Liberties Union, NARAL Pro-Choice America and Planned Parenthood.

There is, however, one more group that is neither a women's group nor a civil-rights group lending its muscle to the event. It's the National Education Association. That's right, the very institution charged with the care and education of our children is co-sponsoring this month's march for abortion by providing a hospitality center and bus rides for participants.

So what is the reason for the Herculean effort? The answer is panic and fear. Abortion advocates actually think history may be at a turning point for a woman's constitutional right to abortion. more>

 Born Alive Infants Protection Act - H.R. 2175

Born-Alive Infanticides May be Occurring Despite Federal Law Preventing It - A Florida pro-life group is investigating allegations that babies are being left to die in the state -- despite a federal law requiring medical care to be given to them. And a nurse who drew nationwide attention to the practice says many hospitals still may not know about the pro-life law designed to care for the infants.

Florida Right to Life's president, Robin Hoffman, confirmed to LifeNews.com that she has met with a Florida nurse who witnessed a baby left to die.

The infanticide practice, that some describe as a "born-alive abortion," refers to cases when a premature baby is delivered, sometimes following a botched abortion, and intentionally left to die.

Congress passed the Born Alive Infants Protection Act to help prevent their deaths and require hospitals to provide such infants with proper medical care. President Bush signed the legislation into law. more>

Born-Alive Infants Protection Act - more>

Senate Passes Born-Alive Infants Protection Act - The U.S. Senate on July 18 gave final congressional approval to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (H.R. 2175). The bill would guarantee that live-born infants are afforded full legal rights under federal law, regardless of their stage of development or whether their live births occurred during an abortion.

When the legislation was originally introduced in 2000 by Congressman Charles Canady (R-Fl.) (since retired), it was attacked by some pro-abortion groups, but they later muted their criticism. The bill passed the House 380-15 on September 26, 2000, but it was killed in the Senate by anonymous objection at the end of the 2000 session.

The legislation was reintroduced in the current Congress by Congressman Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) and Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.). It had passed the House on March 12 by a voice vote, and on July 18 cleared the Senate by unanimous consent.

State Homicide Laws That Recognize Unborn Victims (Fetal Homicide) - What appears below is a summary of the laws of the 30 states that recognize the unlawful killing of an unborn child as homicide in at least some circumstances. The federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act, enacted April 1, 2004, covers unborn victims of federal and military crimes. more>

Unborn Victims Act helps aborted victims - In a statement released after last week’s passage of the Unborn Victims of Violence Act by the U.S. Senate, National Organization for Women President Kim Gandy warned, "Giving a fetus at any stage of development [emphasis hers] the same legal rights as the pregnant woman will undermine the right to abortion as guaranteed under Roe v. Wade."

After President Bush signed UVVA today, it became a criminal offense to harm a preborn baby during the commission of a federal crime. In that case, the baby will be considered a human victim in her own right. And yes, Kim, this will make it ever more difficult to rationalize the legality of permitting that same baby to be killed if the perpetrator is her own mother.

Slowly, methodically, pro-lifers are dismembering Roe v. Wade. (They learned this technique from pro-aborts.) more>

Alan Keyes and Barack Obama, on Carpetbaggers and Abortion - On abortion, Obama is even more liberal than the two current Johns running for president on the Democrat ticket. Jill Stanek, new columnist for World Net Daily, covered the Keyes speech for the Illinois Leader (See ''Obama’s Waterloo – Live Aborted Babies?'').

Keyes explained, ''What finally caught my eye, however, what finally arrested my attention and forced me to consider whether I not only have the opportunity to oppose [Obama], but the obligation, was when I learned that he had actually, in April 2002, apparently cast a vote that would continue to allow live birth abortions in the State of Illinois.''

Abortion is becoming an issue in the nation again, and Democrats are on the wrong side. More and more voters are against abortion. And live birth abortion--where tiny aborted babies live for a time outside the womb--is the most heinous of the abortion acts. It repulses all. more>

Howard Dean and Abortion:

 Dean of Abortion - As Vermont pro-lifers know well, Howard Dean is pro-abortion to the hilt and has no use for pro-lifers. During the Democratic primary I interviewed Mary Hahn Beerworth, the executive director of the Vermont Right To Life Committee. "There is no abortion that Governor Dean doesn't think is a good idea and doesn't think the government should pay for," she said. "There is no more pro-abortion a politician in America." She recalled the time Dean refused to talk to Vermont pro-lifers because, as he put it on a Vermont talk show, he didn't want to meet with common criminals.

Under Dean, Vermont climbed to the top of the nation in rate of abortion. In 1992, Vermont averaged 359 abortions for every 1,000 live births. Dean instituted a "Dr. Dynasaur" program -- which he would tout on local televisions ads with a stethoscope around his neck -- that had a sickening provision in it: low-income mothers could claim their unborn child for eligibility in the program, then once eligible they would receive funds with which to abort that same child.
more>

Dr. Howard Dean and Abortion - Dr. Dean's work for Planned Parenthood invites further journalistic scrutiny. Is it true he never performed an abortion? Never even assisted at one? Somehow along the way he gained a knowledge of abortion procedures, according to Vermont Magazine in 1998. How did he learn them?

Surely Dean will at least take credit for abortion referrals. Recall his NARAL dinner speech last year where, in a attempt to score a debating point against parental notification laws, he described an occasion in his medical office where he lent a sympathetic ear to a 12-year-old who had been impregnated by her father. Under questioning from NBC's Tim Russert, Dean had to admit his incest story was bogus. The girl's father wasn't involved. Russert: "…when you told the story, you knew otherwise." Dean: "That's right." Russert: "Why didn't you say that?" Dean: "Because it didn't make any difference."(It would have made a difference for his argument. He needed the incest fabrication to punctuate the story with the line: "You explain that to the American people who think that parental notification is a good idea.") more>

Transcript: Gov. Howard Dean NARAL Pro-Choice America Dinner - Washington, DC January 21, 2003 - text of Howard Dean's speech to abortion supporters - You know we all have our reasons for running. I'm running because I don't like extremism, and I think extremism has taken over our country. [applause].

I'm going to talk to you as a governor and as a doctor tonight, but I was thinking as I was listening to the four speakers how much is at stake. It's not just abortion rights or reproductive freedoms. Title IX is under attack by this administration [applause] and I think if one of us doesn't win, next thing girls won't be able to go to school in America, you watch. [laughter].

Now Vermont is the promised land for you folks [laughter]. I'm the governor, I was the governor up 'til last week. I served on the board of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England for five years. [cheers, applause]. When I became governor I had to resign because all--we contracted all our family planning services through Planned Parenthood in Vermont. more>

Howard Dean -- Planned Parenthood "Doctor" - While Dean may not find his Planned Parenthood connections too politically damaging in Iowa and New Hampshire, site of the nation's first two major political contests, he could face some fallout in the crucial Feb. 3 Democratic primary in South Carolina, where voters are more culturally conservative. Dean has been one of the Democratic field's most vocal supporters of legalized abortion, including the procedure known as partial birth abortion, which Congress and President Bush moved to ban this year until three federal judges blocked the ban from taking effect.

On Nov. 6, the day the president signed the ban, Dean called it a "dark day for American women, who are seeing their reproductive freedoms restricted by a President acting in concert with a right wing congress. "As this controversy moves to the judicial system," Dean's statement continued, "we are reminded anew of the importance of electing a pro-choice president next year." more>

Drowning Out Sense - Howard Dean on abortion - I have no idea if Howard Dean is telling the truth when he says he has never performed an abortion and that he does not have the necessary training. But I do have reason to wonder. Dean, it would seem, has spent way too much time as a politician around abortion-advocacy doublespeak: He may not know the truth anymore.

A Peoplemagazine interview with Dean and his wife last week went where the Deans obviously did not want to go: to their days working for the abortion mill Margaret Sanger built. more>

A Dean's list of questions - On leaving office this year, Howard Dean sealed his gubernatorial papers for 10 years -- almost twice as long as his two predecessors, but considerably less than the 20-year-lock he sought -- determining himself, with his lawyers, what was covered by executive privilege. And so, on a hot, bright June morning, before Dwyer went back to her fields to bring in the hay --among other things, she is also a farmer -- we sat on her screened porch and cobbled together a list of questions the national media doesn't seem to have ever asked presidential candidate Howard Dean.

First, how come Gov. Dean, who is campaigning on his state record, sealed his own archive? "Well, there are future political considerations," the former governor told Vermont Public Radio. "We didn't want anything embarrassing appearing in the papers at a critical time in any future endeavor."

Well, at least he's up-front about things -- or is he? Having supported Vermont's divisive civil union law, which confers the legal rights of husbands and wives onto homosexual couples -- "in many ways," he said, "the most important event in my political life" -- he signed the controversial legislation behind closed doors. Why?

And speaking of controversial issues, is the Democratic Party ready to unite behind a leader who, as a med student, performed his OB-GYN rotation at a Planned Parenthood clinic? Vermont magazine reported on this in 1998, adding: "While he has never performed an abortion himself, he is strongly pro-choice and certainly understands the medical procedures involved." Which must rate as the medical equivalent of not inhaling. more>

Pro-Abortion Politicians Risk ''Cooperating in Evil'': No Communion for Unfaithful Catholics - This August, three Roman Catholic bishops issued a solemn statement entitled: ''Worthy to Receive the Lamb: Catholics in Political Life and the Reception of Holy Communion.'' The message: consistent support of pro-abortion legislation is a grave sin from which public officials must recant before receiving Holy Communion.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops asserts that ''killing an unborn child is always intrinsically evil,'' and warns that pro-abortion politicians risk ''cooperating in evil.'' However, the conference defers to the prudential judgment of each bishop in deciding whether to deny anyone Communion. As famous Catholics continue to flaunt the ''culture of life,'' more bishops are considering their most extreme option. more>

Pro-choice propaganda is failing! - When NARAL Pro-Choice America announced several days ago it was spending $3 million to launch a nationwide pro-abortion ad campaign, I thought: "Big deal."

I'm not complaining. NARAL is smart. But why are pro-aborts pumping out their propaganda so fiercely now?

Everyone can pull out a poll showing their side is winning, but how about a poll sponsored by former Planned Parenthood president Faye Waddleton that she says carries "alarming news" about our views on abortion?

The center hired Princeton Survey Research Associates to conduct a two-year "groundbreaking" survey of American women, and the results of the poll were not good for their side. Women ranked abortion rights as number 11 out of 12 on their list of priorities.

In fact, the poll showed declining support for abortion rights. Only 30 percent of those surveyed believe abortion should be generally available, and a whopping 51 percent say abortion should only be available in cases of rape, incest, life of the mother, or not at all. more>

The beginning of the end of abortion - ...Conservatives are on the verge of seizing the high ground of history on abortion. Arlen Specter -- Arrogant Arlen -- is groveling before them. Clarence Thomas will be the next chief justice. More and more politicians will see it safe to jump on the abortion=slavery bandwagon. Soon, the blood seeping from a wounded Roe v. Wade will be in the water, the feeding frenzy will be on and the constitutionally non-existent "right to privacy" chewed to shreds. The day is not that far off when school kids will be asking their history teacher puzzled questions as to how there was a time in America when people passionately defended the morality of a mother killing her own baby.

The dark chapter of America's peculiar institution of abortion is coming to an end. more>

 John Kerry & Abortion

A Kerry Presidency Would Be a Boon to the Forces of Death - A President Kerry would change the direction of the courts--starting with the Supreme Court--stacking them with pro-choice appointments and rejecting pro-life judges. Kerry would be the most staunchly pro-choice president ever. At the 2003 NARAL Pro-Choice America Dinner, where he described pro-lifers as ''the forces of intolerance,'' Kerry boasted that his maiden speech as a freshman senator had been in support of Roe v. Wade. On August 2, 1994, on the Senate floor, he stated: ''The right thing to do is to treat abortions as exactly what they are--a medical procedure that any doctor is free to provide and any pregnant woman free to obtain. Consequently, abortions should not have to be performed in tightly guarded clinics on the edge of town; they should be performed and obtained in the same locations as any other medical procedure.... [A]bortions need to be moved out of the fringes of medicine and into the mainstream of medical practice.''

In April 2004, Kerry took a rare timeout from the presidential campaign to appear on the Senate floor to vote against a bill that would make it a crime to harm a fetus during an assault on the mother--a bill supported by two-thirds of senators. Kerry also joined a Senate minority in voting against a ban on partial-birth abortion…. more>

John Kerry's Bizarre Abortion Views - ''I don't like abortion. I believe life does begin at conception. But I can't take my Catholic belief, my article of faith, and legislate it on a Protestant or a Jew or an atheist...who doesn't share it. We have separation of church and state in the United States of America.''

Well, what sort of degenerate is John Kerry? How is it that he can believe that every abortion ends an innocent human life and yet regularly receive a 100% rating on his voting record from pro-abortion groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood? more>

John Sanger Kerry - Few politicians can beat past John Kerry on the radical social left. Often accused of flip-flopping, Kerry never flip-flops on one issue -- abortion.

Like Bill Clinton, the womanizer who would waffle on everything except "women's issues," Kerry is a reliable vote for NARAL. He marched with militant feminists on the streets of New York in the 1970s. During the primaries, Kerry tried to wow NARAL activists by claiming that his maiden speech as a senator was a ringing endorsement of Roe v. Wade. He had to abandon the assertion after reporters discovered it was bogus, but The Congressional Record shows plenty of later speeches. In 1986 he rose to defend the right of federal prisoners to abort their unborn children. He applauded a court decision which held that "inmates not only have the constitutional right to an abortion for medical reasons, but that abortions must be paid for by the Government."

This week Kerry again defended the right of criminals to kill unborn children -- criminals in this case assaulting women and their unborn children. He voted with the minority bloc in the Senate against the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. The bill stated that if an assailant attacks a pregnant woman the assailant can be charged for offenses against both the woman and the unborn child. Kerry "interrupted" his campaign, the press reported, to vote against the bill.

Kerry accepting 'blood money'? 3 infamous partial-birth abortionists give cash to Kerry
Three abortion doctors who specialize in partial-birth abortions – two of whom actually advertise their willingness to perform the grisly procedure – are all contributors to John Kerry's presidential campaign.

George Tiller and Warren Hern may be the only two abortionists in the U.S. who openly advertise that they perform third-trimester abortions, writes Douglas Johnson in the Weekly Standard. Johnson is legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee. The third doctor is Martin Haskell. Together, the three have contributed a total of $7,000 to help put Kerry in the White House.

Kerry Claims Partial-Birth Abortion Doesn't Exist - Even though several thousand gruesome partial-birth abortions are perpetrated a year, allegedly "Catholic" White House wannabe Sen. John Kerry lives in a fantasy world where they don't exist.

Pandering for votes Wednesday night at a forum sponsored in Manchester, N.H., by the taxpayer-supported pro-abortion group Planned Parenthood, Kerry claimed "there is no such thing as a partial birth."

Kerry is Hypocrite on Abortion - Kerry brags about his 100 percent pro-abortion record when speaking to NOW groups, but hides it when speaking to more conservative groups. Kerry's Catholic faith, litmus test for Supreme Court nominees, partial-birth abortion (voted for), and live-birth abortions. more>

Kerry's abortion doubletalk - Puzzling Democrats and other pro-abortion voters everywhere, John Kerry proclaimed to ABC News and its viewers that he believes life begins at conception. He made similar confusing statements in Iowa earlier this month when appealing to a largely Catholic based community.

He "clarified" his statements by distinguishing human life from personhood. His position is that the unborn child is not a person according to the law. Though human, the unborn child is not protectable human life. That means, Kerry adheres to and supports the decision made in Roe v. Wade. And for our non-French speaking audience, that means he undauntedly supports abortion. more>
