American College of Pediatricians Confirms Abortion-Breast Cancer Link: "Not Merely Correlational'

Breast cancer. Two of the scariest words a woman can hear. You’d think people who claim to advocate for women would do everything possible to educate them about their risks.

You’d think they’d offer all the information and all the research. Read More at LifeNews.com

Hillary Clinton Pushes Abortion in First Speech as Candidate: Too Many Women “Denied” Abortions


Hillary Clinton made it clear that, if she is elected president of the United States, she will push unlimited abortion on demand. In her first speech as a presidential candidate, Clinton said too many women are “denied” abortions, even though the United States allows abortions virtually for any reason.  Read More at LifeNews.com

Deja Vu: Another Navy Chaplain Censored: ‘Don’t Pray In The Name of Jesus’

Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD, Praying In Jesus Name: Fox Newsexposes more about the abuse sufffered by Navy Chaplain Wes Modder.

"A Navy chaplain who faces the end of a stellar 19-year career because of his faith-based views on marriage and human sexuality was told by a base commander to refrain from offering a prayer in the name of Jesus, according to attorneys representing the chaplain.

"That allegation was tucked away in an 18-page letter written to the commander of Navy Region Southeast by Liberty Institute attorneys representing Chaplain Wesley Modder. Liberty Institute is a law firm that specializes in religious liberty cases."

"The letter included the results of Liberty Institute’s investigation of allegations levied against the chaplain by Captain John Fahs.

"Just a few months earlier, Modder’s commander had called him the 'best of the best” and a consummate professional leader.' But now he’s on the verge of being kicked out of the military.

"After our investigation, it is clear that the facts and law are on Chaplain Modder’s side," Liberty Institute attorney Michael Berry said. "He has done nothing more than provide ministerial services in accordance with the precepts of his faith – which is completely consistent with Navy rules and federal law."

"And if the Navy silences chaplains – they could certainly silence sailors.

"If the Navy can remove a chaplain who expresses his religious beliefs, then service members who share those beliefs will believe that they, too, are unwelcome in the Navy," Liberty Institute wrote.

I'm fuming with anger over how this outstanding Chaplain is being mistreated. It's time for Congress to intervene and set punishments, not for Chaplains who pray, but for commanders who censor chaplains' prayers, or punish them for sincere acts of religious expression.

Let's petition Congress to restore Chaplains' right to pray "in Jesus' name."

I talked to a leading Congressman who has written the Navy brass, to defend Chaplain Wes Modder, under fire for his faith in Jesus Christ.

"A decorated Assemblies of God Navy chaplain who spent several years counseling elite Navy SEALs could be kicked out of the military for allegations that he [quoted the Bible to] sailors regarding homosexuality and premarital sex," reports the National Catholic Register.

"Navy officials accuse Lt. Cmdr. Wesley Modder of being 'intolerant' and 'unable to function in the diverse and pluralistic environment' of his assignment at the Navy Nuclear Power Training Command in South Carolina.

"Modder’s attorney, Mike Berry, told the Register that federal law, military regulations and Navy policy protect service members’ rights of conscience and religious freedom. Berry said the law 'is very clear that service members do not forfeit their First Amendment rights of religious freedom.'"

But Congress is taking action.

"Modder’s case has prompted more than 100,000 people to sign a petition calling on the Navy not to discipline him. Meanwhile, several members of Congress have expressed their support for Modder, a former U.S. Marine who served in Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm in 1991. He has served as a Navy chaplain for 15 years.

"In a March 30 letter to Navy Secretary and Rear Admiral Margaret Kibben, the chief of Navy chaplains, the congressional members ask the Navy to ensure that all investigation be conducted 'in accord with laws protecting a chaplain’s right to express and conduct himself according to his religious beliefs.'

"Wrote the congressional members: 'Military chaplains fill a crucial religious need that exists uniquely in the realm of military service — a need that is imperative to the well-being and operational readiness of the troops.'"

We need another 100,000 fax petitions delivered to Congress. We need to bury the Navy Brass in public outcry and DC in petition paper, so Congress holds them accountable, and they get the message. They hate the Constitution? Fire them all, and restore this Chaplain's good name and religious freedom.

Hillary to Churches — Change on Abortion

by Bill Donohue, Catholics League: It was not surprising that Hillary Clinton, who strongly opposes a ban on partial-birth abortion, would tell her feminist audience (at the Women in the World Summit in New York City) that she supports Planned Parenthood. What was surprising was her comment on the need to change religious beliefs on abortion. Here is what she said:
"Yes, we've cut the maternal mortality rate in half, but far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health [read: abortion] and safe childbirth. All the laws we've passed don't count for much if they're not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice, not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources, and political will and deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed." In other words, Hillary has a problem with the Catholic Church's teachings on abortion — they must be changed.

Never before have we seen a presidential candidate be this bold about directly confronting the Catholic Church's teachings on abortion. It's time for Hillary to take the next step and tell us exactly what she plans to do about delivering on her pledge. Not only would practicing Catholics like to know, so would Evangelicals, Orthodox Jews, Muslims, and all those who value life from conception to natural death.

Small Nations Fight Back Over UN Harassment To Establish Abortion and Homosexuality Rights

Ambassadors Accuse UN Agency Of Harassment and Exerting Undue Influence

Ambassador Usman Sarki of Nigeria
by Stefano Gennarini, Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam): In a rare case of backroom pressure spilling onto the floor of a UN meeting, a delegate from the Pacific island of Nauru angrily scolded the UN Population Fund for “harassing” their government and “maligning” their UN delegation.

“Does UNFPA think they can do this because Nauru is the smallest member state?”

Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin answered in kind at the close of the 48th session of the UN Commission on Population and Development last Friday. The head of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) with a $1 billion annual budget angrily accused countries that harbor concerns with sexual and reproductive health policies, or see them as gateways to sexual rights and abortion, of not being “tolerant.”

After two weeks of negotiations the commission could not reach an agreement on how such policies should be integrated in a new UN development scheme, the main theme of this year’s commission.

The Belgian Chair pulled the plug on a resolution rather than accommodate the remaining concerns with the compromise draft she prepared.

African and other delegations wanted to omit or qualify terms like “comprehensive sexuality education,” and “sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights” in the draft document—terms associated with social acceptance of homosexuality, sexual rights for children, and abortion.

Ambassador Usman Sarki of Nigeria delivered a biting message on behalf of the Africans. He criticized governments and activists that use UN development work to promote controversial social issues.

“We came to the meeting with an open mind,” Sarki said, objecting that from the outset they had to deal with drafts “replete with controversial issues that have in the past not only proved difficult to deal with but are also extremely divisive in nature.”

Sarki urged countries not to deviate from “universally agreed human rights” — a phrase that excludes homosexual rights and abortion which are not established in international law.

The resoluteness of the Africans was cemented by a recent UN report exposing the desire of donor countries to use the new development agenda to promote homosexuality and abortion.

Sarki also lamented attempts to manipulate negotiations by UN bureaucrats exerting influence on officials in capitols and at UN headquarters. UN negotiations should be “free from all undue influence, pressure, and coercion,” he said.

African delegates privately complained about unprecedented pressure from UNFPA in their nations’ capitals and in New York, especially to include “comprehensive education on human sexuality” (CSE) in the agreement, which promotes sexual activity to children as young as 5.

A delegate from El Salvador, who led the negotiations, was especially disappointed. He apportioned blame mostly on those who sought to “impose” their will in UN negotiations and called for respect for different positions. At the same time, he chided countries “holding other people back” on expanding the notions of sexual and reproductive health.

John Wilmoth, the chief UN demographer, said at the close of the meeting that he was “shell shocked.”

Normally, countries with objections to one or a few terms will adopt a resolution but make reservations clarifying their position. This time, Africans wanted to delete and qualify the controversial terms.

Sarki explained that the failure to reach an agreement was not a failure at all, but a positive development. “Member states have resisted the imposition of unhelpful ideas and concepts on all the membership.”

March for Marriage Highlights Supreme Court Case

by CitizenLink Team: Millions of people in the U.S. support marriage. That will be the message this weekend at the annual March for Marriage in Washington.

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), which sponsors the event, is planning a full slate of speakers and a march to the steps of the Supreme Court. All in an effort to show the justices that God’s timeless design for marriage should be affirmed.

“This is right before oral arguments,” said Brian Brown with NOM, “the court will be looking, the nation will be looking and it’s a chance for supporters of traditional marriage to come together and show their support.

CitizenLink President Tom Minnery will be among the speakers at the event. He said the high court has no right to redefine marriage.

“Our prayer is that the outpouring of people for Saturday’s march will become a mighty argument that the court cannot ignore,” he explained. “From the lineup of speakers to the faces in the crowd, Saturday’s march will be highly diverse. This diversity will show the country that people from all walks of life and all ethnic backgrounds are united in their belief that every child needs a mom and a dad.”

MSNBC Host: Force Med Students to Perform Abortions

Melissa Harris-Perry
by Candice Thomas, Liberty News Now: Calling abortion a “basic core skill” that medical students should be forced to learn in order to graduate, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry suggests that force is the only way to make sure doctors have the skills needed to perform abortions going forward – especially when the government decrees “abortion on demand” as ObamaCare begins to show its true self.

During an April 11 appearance on MSNBC’s “Lean Forward” program, Harris-Perry questioned Dr. Anne Davis, consulting medical director for the pro-abortion group Physicians for Reproductive Health about state legislation that would prohibit the “basic core skill” of abortion at state medical schools.
Harris-Perry and Davis described abortion education as a “core part” or a “core skill” no less than five times during the five-minute interview. Harris-Perry began the conversation about recent pro-life advances saying:

“We’re not even one-third of the way through 2015 and already more than 330 provisions to restrict access to reproductive services have been proposed.”

One proposal unnerving Harris-Perry is North Carolina’s House Bill 465 – legislation that would clarify & modify the state’s abortion laws to prevent state medical schools from “perform[ing] or supervis[ing] the performance of” abortions. If passed at the state level, it would be hard for ObamaCare dictators in Washington, DC to order a procedure that doctors are not trained to perform.

Harris-Perry reacted angrily by saying:

“If that bill is enacted, the implication for our medical system could be unprecedented.”

Students should learn to perform abortions in medical school because it is a “basic core skill,” regardless of whether or not that student will be specializing in anything related to the gynecological field.

The tide has decidedly turned against the abortion industry in recent years as more and more pro-life legislators are being elected to state and local office and then using their clout to pass laws tightening restrictions on clinics that perform abortions – something that is well within the right of states to do.

In retaliation and typical fashion, the Left is resorting to force to make sure doctors know how to perform abortions at all stages of gestation – from the “morning after pill” before a baby implants itself in the mother’s uterine lining to partial birth abortion of a live baby.

This use of force would also extend to all medical disciplines including everything from family practice doctors to neurologists, podiatrists, endocrinologists, psychiatrists – you name it. And there would be no exceptions for medical students with religious objections or those that simply find abortion to be morally reprehensible.

Do you believe?

Ben Woodard, Online for Life: I often remind my two sons of a popular phrase: “Your attitude determines your altitude.” Those who value all of human life need to stop thinking about fighting the abortion battle and start thinking about winning the abortion war.

Why I Believe
My belief that abortion will be made unthinkable and unavailable in our lifetime is not some flippant, altruistic platitude. It’s based on conviction and fact. Consider these points:

1. Abortion arguments are completely untruthful. The entire abortion infrastructure is built on lies, but we know that truth sets us free. Winning the abortion war is based on our ability to compassionately and winsomely share truth. Abortion kills a human being. That’s a medical fact. Abortion harms women. That’s a fact. Abortion destroys families. Fact. Abortion is a negative influence on the economy. Fact. Abortion is the leading cause of death in America and breaks the heart of God. Fact. Every life, regardless of the circumstances of their conception, is priceless in value and unlimited in potential. Fact.Therefore, the abortion epidemic in America exists because we, as a society, either believe these lies or passively ignore them. The more effective we are at spreading truth, the faster abortion will disappear.
2. Slavery was a 5,000-year-old institution when William Wilberforce came on the scene in the late 1700s. Over the course of four decades, Wilberforce successfully mobilized a nation that, when he started, accepted slavery as normal and then, when he finished, found slavery reprehensible. Abortion has been legal for 42 years in America, and our culture has never been settled with it. Culturally speaking, it should be easier to overturn abortion now than it was for Wilberforce to overturn slavery. We have historical precedent to guide us.

3. We are learning how to effectively help rescue children and their families from abortion. It used to cost Online for Life over $1,100 to reach an abortion-determined woman who would then choose life. Today, that cost is $265. We are testing; innovating; and learning how to overcome obstacles, meet needs, link arms with hurting people, and help save more babies. The pace of our ability to help rescue children is accelerating.

Online for Life works with 30 life-affirming pregnancy centers across the country, and we continue to see innovation, imagination, and increased results. The two pregnancy centers we own and operate in Pittsburgh and Dallas–Fort Worth are helping to rescue four to five times the number of children from abortion compared to just one year ago.

Do You Believe It?
In light of this tremendous progress, why do compassionate pro-life people still have a pessimistic or neutral attitude about ending legalized abortion? This is by no means a scientific study, but I believe there are three primary reasons:

1. We don’t hear enough good news. I’m often asked if Online for Life, being one of the largest pro-life nonprofit organizations in America, is targeted and abused by the mainstream media. The answer is no, it’s worse. We are ignored. This has been the media’s strategy for years—they simply act like we don’t exist.
So it’s difficult for many people to hear about the amazing progress that is being made by the pro-life movement in political, activist, and community efforts. Lives are being touched, babies are being saved, hearts are being changed. It’s quiet, grassroots, and largely ignored by the powers that be, but it’s happening.

2. “Things are supposed to get bad.” There are many Christians who believe we are living in the “last days.” This theological perspective maintains we are making our way to a time of terrible tribulation, and things are going to get worse before Christ comes to rescue the Church at the second coming. Therefore, legalized abortion may merely be a sign of the times, and we should expect it to continue.

In my travels across the country and in discussions with church leaders and laypeople, I often run across a resigned acceptance of the permanence of abortion, primarily because of this theological view.

I don’t know when Jesus is coming back, and there are numerous theological views regarding the end of time and history. I do know what God has tasked us to do while we are on this planet. Proverbs 24:11 says, “Deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those who are staggering to slaughter, oh hold them back” (NASB). God has given us both dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:28) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28). We have plenty of good work to do while we are here, and that work was ordained before we were even born.

Christians who believe we are living in the end times may very well be right. But they also need to be careful because that view may lead to a conscious—or even subconscious—fatalistic view of the ability of the Church to influence and redeem our culture. Our worldview and our theology govern our behaviors. The temptation may be to sit on the cultural sidelines and wait for Christ to come back to rescue us. Instead, let’s try to save as many souls as we can as this Titanic sinks.

We should be the most optimistic, joyful people in our communities, working passionately to redeem and reconcile all things. Christ’s work on the cross was complete and sufficient. The gates of hell will not prevail against His Church. Christ already won on our behalf.

We are to be both salt (preserving the Gospel in the culture) and light (proclaiming the Good News of Christ).

I’m not arguing for one eschatological (end times) interpretation of Scripture over another. My point is our commitment to rescuing those being taken away to death, restoring our culture to one that values all human life, and obeying the clear command of Scripture to be both “salt” and “light” should be passionate and relentless regardless of our view of the end times. We cannot sit by and allow the suffering, pain, death, and destruction to continue—even if we believe the abortion holocaust may be prophetic. That passivity is in clear contradiction to an abundance of Scripture that commands us to seek justice, preserve the lives of innocent human beings, and love our neighbors as ourselves.

Remember, Proverbs 24:11-12 starts with a command but ends with a warning: “If you say, ‘See we did not know this,’ does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man according to his work?”We can and we should end abortion regardless of when we believe Christ will return.3. “We don’t have the political or financial strength to win.” If we look to the government to end this holocaust, we are going to be severely disappointed—forever. It isn't up to Washington, D.C., or state legislatures to end abortion. It’s up to us.

Laws follow culture. The tremendous pro-life legislative gains that are being made in various state houses and senates are happening because thousands of committed pro-life people are changing the culture and putting pressure on politicians to follow suit. People ask me all the time, “Do you think Roe v. Wade will be overturned?” The answer is, of course, as soon as enough of the culture finds it reprehensible.

Planned Parenthood has a $1+ billion annual budget. But did you know that an estimated $500 to $750 million is donated to the pro-life movement each and every year? Americans care very deeply about the unborn and their families, and they put their money where their mouth is. The financial fight to end abortion may be a lot closer than you think.

Be encouraged. Despite what you hear on the news, on the Internet, or from political know-it-alls, the movement to end abortion is growing more effective than ever, and it’s on the way to ending the abortion holocaust.

So that’s my “why.” Every life is precious and deserves our protection. And I believe we can make abortion unthinkable and unavailable in America in our lifetime.

Do you believe it too? If so, what can we do together to speed up abortion’s demise?

Carly Fiorina: ‘Nobody Agrees With’ Democrats’ Abortion Platform

Carly Fiorina
by Kate Scanlon: Former CEO of Hewlett-Packard and likely presidential candidate Carly Fiorina criticized the Democratic Party’s platform of abortion on demand during a recent speech.

Serving as the mistress of ceremonies at the Susan B. Anthony List’s Campaign for Life Gala in Washington, D.C. last week, Fiorina praised the organization and its supporters for their contributions to the pro-life movement.

Fiorina said that while some call the Republican Party’s pro-life platform “extreme,” the Democratic Party’s platform of abortion on demand is hardly mainstream:
Here is what it says: Any abortion, anytime, at any point in a woman’s pregnancy, for any reason, to be paid for by taxpayers. Now, there are Democrats who want to add, ‘to be performed by a non-doctor.’

And this policy has been succinctly summarized by Democrats, such as Barbara Boxer, as ‘it isn’t a life until it leaves the hospital.’ Do you agree with that? Nobody agrees with that! Even people who think they’re pro-choice don’t agree with that.

She pointed out that tattoo parlors are more “rigorously and routinely inspected” than abortion clinics, and signs in bars caution that the consumption of alcohol is harmful during pregnancy.

“Hazardous to what, or to whom?” she asked.

She encouraged pro-lifers to engage in “persuasive conversations” with those who support abortion “to get them to think–perhaps in a new way.”

“A woman facing a difficult choice always deserves our empathy and our support, never our judgement or our condemnation,” said Fiorina. “But if we can engage in a reasonable conversation with people we can change people’s minds.”

IBM Attacks Religious Liberty

by Bill Donohue, Catholic League: Corporate behemoth IBM wants to join the culture war. Welcome, though it may regret doing so.

No one knew how anti-Christian IBM had become until it unleashed its fury against a religious-liberty bill in Louisiana. Its governor, Bobby Jindal, is a practicing Catholic, and he plans to sign a law that protects religious liberty from its enemies. Those enemies now include IBM.

IBM is charging that the religious-liberty bill will create a “hostile environment for our current and prospective employees,” saying the legislation is “antithetical to our company’s values.” It offers not a shred of evidence to substantiate this absurd accusation, and that’s because there is none. Proof: The Louisiana law is based on a similar federal law, as well as other state laws on this issue, and if religious-liberty legislation triggered a “hostile environment,” then IBM would be able to document it by now. It can’t. As for its “company values,” evidently not among them is respect for the First Amendment guarantee of religious liberty.

If IBM wants to relocate from Louisiana, it should consider Cuba. But it needs to move fast: Cuba is showing signs of renewed respect for religious liberty, and if conditions improve, the capitalist elites may find themselves sitting to the left of the communists.
