    Two opponents of a 12-year-old Alabama girl's decision to have an abortion after she was raped by a relative spoke out Wednesday during a news conference in Montgomery. Win Johnson, former Legal Director for the Administrative Office of Courts under Chief Justice Roy Moore, and Lorie Mullins, Executive Director of COPE Pregnancy Center, who has counseled post-abortive women, spoke regarding the court's decision. On Wednesday, the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals granted the unidentified child's petition to have an abortion without parental consent, a decision that bypasses Alabama's Parental Consent law. "There are two victims of this decision by the...
  • Three Republicans blocking final effort to defund Planned Parenthood, repeal Obamacare

    It looks like Planned Parenthood won't be defunded and Obamacare won't be repealed thanks to three Republican senators. Republicans failed to rally enough senators to vote for the Better Care Reconciliation Act, which would repeal and replace Obamacare. Then, Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, announced the Senate would instead only vote on repealing the pro-abortion healthcare law. The bill repealing Obamacare would also defund Planned Parenthood for one year. Three Republican senators, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Susan Collins of Maine, have all said they'd vote against the bill. This means McConnell doesn't...
  • The Golden Rule Ought to Help Us Recognize the Dignity of Unborn Children

    Why should we care about the fate of unborn children who are at risk of death through abortion? Why do they matter? Many people don’t care. After all, unborn children are small and largely hidden from view. They look (at their earliest stages) different from us. They don’t have the sophisticated cognitive functions that we do. They can’t speak for themselves. Worse, many people feel like (or think they could feel like) they have a self-interest in the destruction of unborn children. Abortion, people think, makes life easier. That’s why it happens. This isn’t a problem unique to the unborn....

    Yesterday Judge William Orrick held David Daleiden, the Center for Medical Progress, and two of David’s criminal defense attorneys in civil contempt for violating a court order prohibiting the release of video footage related to NAF conferences and related meetings. The footage was posted to a private website in May. Orrick said Daleiden’s lawyers published undercover video footage of a National Abortion Federation meeting in violation of a court order. “Criminal defense counsel … do not get to decide whether they can violate the preliminary injunction,” Orrick said Tuesday in court. Daleiden’s criminal defense attorneys argued that the videos are...

    President Donald Trump and talk show host Rosie O’Donnell do not have what one would call a “good” relationship. The two have been feuding for years, and Trump has gone out of his way to mock O’Donnell both on Twitter and during one of the early primary debates. In response, O’Donnell has been vocally opposed to Trump’s policies, and she apparently is a fan of a game where users kill the president. Over the weekend, O’Donnell tweeted a link to the online game “Push Trump Off A Cliff Again,” which, as one could infer, is a simple game that involves...

    Eleven pro-life activists have been charged with violating the federal F.A.C.E. act following a peaceful rescue event outside a Kentucky abortion facility in May. The event, held outside the EMW women’s abortion facility in Louisville, was organized by Operation Save America (OSA). Rev. Rusty Thomas, national director of Operation Save America (OSA), said he decided to check his e-mail late Tuesday evening he discovered that he along with ten other pro-life activists had been formally charged under the federal F.A.C.E. act. F.A.C.E. is the “Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act,” a draconian piece of legislation signed into law by...

    FULL TITLE: Mother-of-one dies after being forced to have FOUR abortions in a year by her husband who wants to have a son A woman in China has reportedly died after being forced to go through four abortions in a year because her husband wanted a son. The woman, who had one daughter, was told by her husband to terminate her pregnancies whenever the medical scan showed she was carrying a girl, according to Chinese media. Her husband was said to have proposed a divorce earlier this year after the woman had been left bedridden by the traumatic medical operations....

    The on-going political row over the treatment of Charlie Gard took a new turn today as it emerged US lawmakers have granted the terminally-ill 11-month-old permanent resident status to allow him to fly to America for treatment. Congress passed the amendment that it is reported could mean Charlie's parents, who have been mired in a battle with British doctors, to take him to the US without needing their permission. Jeff Fortenberry, Republican U.S. Representative for Nebraska, tweeted:

    The efforts of British medical personnel to prevent Charlie Gard from receiving experimental treatment implies they don't understand how important participating in medical research is. All medical treatments begin as experiments. Someone had to be the first to be treated for rabies. Someone had to be the first to receive a heart transplant. Sixty years ago my grandfather had experimental treatment for skin cancer on his face that didn't work as expected because, according to my dad, The doctor applied the radiation for too long. Decades later doctors used the knowledge they gained from treating my grandfather and others to...

    In baseball, it’s three strikes, you’re out. But there’s unfortunately no such guaranteed result in Kansas for an abortionist who has now lost her state medical license for the third time and could appeal the ruling again. In a quiet release online July 7th, the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts issued its third order revoking the license of Ann Kristin Neuhaus, who was issuing “second opinions” approving post-viability abortions in Kansas from 1999-2006. The Board also maintained its demand for her to pay approximately $31,000 in legal expenses–which is only a fraction of the costs accrued in pursuing this...
  • In Arkansas, Women Must Now Get A Man's Permission Before An Abortion

    Konbini ^ | 7/10/2017 | Kimberly B. Johnson
    In Arkansas, women are now required to get permission from men before going through with abortion services. The law is a provision of recently passed bill H.B. 1566 which states that in the matter of a person’s death, family members must all agree on what to do with the deceased person’s body. So, how do women and their bodies play into this at all? Arkansas legislators decided to include aborted fetuses into the Act, meaning both the mother and the father of the fetus must agree on what to do with the fetal remains. This essentially requires a woman to...

    Poor baby Charlie Gard and his parents are caught in the old battle between compassionless medical traditionalists who are satisfied with existing medical knowledge and the experimentalists who are trying to advance medical knowledge to reduce the number of disorders that cannot be successfully treated. Traditionalists who don't know how to treat disorders tend to deny the possibility that patients like Charlie whom they don't know how to treat can be treated by anyone. They are like selfish little children who don't want to let other children play with toys they aren't playing with at the time. Traditionalists would rather...

    Charlie Gard’s parents remain "optimistic" following a brain scan that will determine whether he can have experimental therapy. The scan took place at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) where a US professor of neurosurgery examined the 11-month-old boy on Monday. Prof Michio Hirano was studying the scan and other medical records before deciding whether he felt the boy could benefit from treatment for the rare mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome.

    The US doctor who has offered to treat terminally ill Charlie Gard has attended a meeting at Great Ormond Street Hospital to decide whether he should travel to America for therapy. Dr Michio Hirano will discuss Charlie's condition with doctors treating him and independent specialists. Great Ormond Street has given Dr Hirano an honorary contract giving him the same status as its own physicians. It means he can examine Charlie and has full access to his medical records. The visit has been arranged as part of the latest stage of a court fight, brought by Charlie's parents Connie Yates and...

    Under a law signed on Wednesday, pro-life pregnancy centers in Hawaii will be forced to tell patients about free abortions provided by the state. And if they don't, they could face fines up to $1,000 dollars for a repeated offense. There are currently five pro-life centers in the state. "This clinic does not provide abortion services or abortion referrals. Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate," reads the mandatory notification the centers will have to provide patients with. "Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to...

    The case of dying English baby Charlie Gard shows how much public opinion about life and death issues is swayed by emotion rather than thoughtful deliberation. Charlie was born with mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome. This condition is so rare that there are probably only a dozen children in the world who are affected. The child cannot breathe on his own, cannot move and is probably profoundly intellectually disabled. His parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, understand that their son will probably only live a short time, but want to give him every chance. They have found a professor of neurology...

    Charlie Gard’s parents have 11 days to breathe a little easier after a judge said he will delay his final decision on the infant’s life until July 25. On Friday, High Court Judge Nicholas Francis said he will wait to hear what United States neurologist Dr. Michio Hirano has to say about Charlie’s condition before ruling, Fox News reports. Hirano, a researcher from Columbia University who specializes in mitochondrial diseases, plans to travel to the UK next week to examine him. Judge Francis said he is “open-minded about the evidence” from Hirano’s examination. Charlie is an 11-month-old British infant who...
