Planned Parenthood Abortion Business Listed as Safe Haven for Moms to Surrender Their Newborn Baby

Vermont Government has to be crazy.  It has a new Safe Haven law, which means that parents can hand over an infant to an employee at any fire station, health facility or hospital, with absolutely no questions asked. However, apparently Planned Parenthood is considered a safe place for infants in Vermont.  Read More at LifeNews.com

Democrats Can’t Think of Single Thing Pro-Abortion Hillary Clinton Accomplished

YouHitNews:  For his With All Due Respect show on Bloomberg TV, Mark Halperin sat down with a focus group of Iowa Democratic voters to discuss Hillary Clinton‘s prospects for the 2016 presidential election.

While the group fawned over the former First Lady’s personality and politics (one called her a “bad mama jama”), they were stumped when Halperin asked them to name a single accomplishment of Hillary Clinton’s during her tenure as Secretary of State.

The responses ranged from “I really can’t name anything off the top of my head” to “Give me two minutes” to “I honestly can’t say I followed along everything that was going on” to outright “No.”

Washington Post‘s “The Fix” blog noted that while it’s stunning that some of her biggest fans cannot name her State Department achievements, “not being able to name specific things politicians have done isn’t that unusual for the average voters. . . .

Brain Birch, CatholicVote.org: The Supreme Court is deliberating right now on how to rule on the case involving marriage. This court case will have a major impact on marriage, and the future generations of Americans not yet born. This case could change our country forever.

The court’s ruling is due by the last day of June. As we await the court’s ruling, CatholicVote.org is calling on all Catholics to join our 40 Days of Prayer for Marriage from May 22 to June 30. [Dr. Bill Smith, Editor, Greater Fitchburg for Life,  is calling on all Christians to join in praying for Traditional Marriage: one man-one woman.]

Can we count on you? Will you Pledge to Pray for Marriage?

We have voted for marriage at the ballot box. We have supported candidates who stand for marriage as a union of one man and one woman. And have defended marriage in the court of law.

Each time, we have united our action with prayer. And now we must pray harder than ever before.

Please join the members of CatholicVote and Pledge to Pray for Marriage during these 40 days.

Federal Court Forces University of Notre Dame to Obey Pro-Abortion HHS Mandate

A federal appeals court has denied a request by the University of Notre Dame to get out of having to comply with the pro-abortion HHS mandate that is a part of Obamacare and requires businesses and church groups to pay for abortion-causing drugs for their employees.

Notre Dame won a victory at the Supreme Court earlier this year. After a lower court dismissed the lawsuit, in March the Supreme Court ordered the lower court to reconsider its ruling that denied a Catholic university the freedom to follow its faith. But, today, a panel of a federal appeals court ruled that Notre Dame must comply with the mandate.

SCOTUS blog has more on the decision the appeals court issued:
In a two-to-one ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit cleared the way for a trial of the university’s challenge but denied any immediate religious exemption.

This marked the first time that a federal appeals court had rejected a claim that the Supreme Court’s ruling last June in the case of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores should shield a non-profit religious organization from any role whatsoever in carrying out the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate. The issue seems certain to return to the Justices, probably next Term, although Notre Dame could try to get some temporary relief by returning quickly to the Supreme Court.

The university’s case has yet to go to trial in a federal district court, so the appeals court ruling was limited to denying preliminary protection for the university in the meantime.  Still, it was a strong signal that the Roman Catholic institution may have a hard time, at least in lower courts, getting an exemption.

Although the government has made clear that non-profit groups need to take only a minimal step to take advantage of a religious exemption, Notre Dame — like some other non-profits — has been arguing that even taking such a step would mean that it had helped to implement the mandate in a way that violates its religious opposition to birth control. . . .Read More at LifeNews.com

Planned Parenthood Leadership Knew That The Pill Would Increase Abortions

In 1973, Malcolm Potts, MD, the first medical director of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, stated outright: "As people turn to contraception, there will be a rise, not a fall, in the abortion rate."

And he was right. The number of US abortions doubled between 1973 and 1981.

That reality is not a comfortable one for today’s Planned Parenthood, since it uses “acceptable” contraception to make inroads into every area where it wants to promote “unacceptable” abortion.

Remembering Kermit Gosnell’s Victims by Protecting Other Women and Children From Abortion Industry

by Sarah Torre: Today marks the second anniversary of the conviction of Kermit Gosnell, the late-term abortionist who brutalized women and routinely killed living, breathing infants in his rundown West Philadelphia clinic.

The House is scheduled to vote (House passed bill) on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, H.R. 36, which would limit late-term abortions after 20 weeks, include stronger informed consent requirements and additional protections for children born alive after failed abortions.

Late-term abortion ends the lives of some 15,000 unborn children every year.


Protecting the safety of women and the lives of unborn children who are so close to being able to live outside the womb from late-term abortion is a policy the American people overwhelming support and our collective conscience demands.

Gosnell is currently serving a life sentence for first-degree murder in the deaths of three infants who were born alive after botched abortions. Among more than 200 other criminal counts, he was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, a 41-year-old woman who died from an overdose of anesthetic drugs during an abortion procedure.

The details of the Gosnell’s six-week murder trial were grisly. The pictures submitted as evidence are almost unbearable. According to the almost 300-page grand jury report, the murder of newborn infants after failed abortions was a regular occurrence during the 40 years Gosnell ran the clinic. One clinic worker estimated nearly 100 living babies were killed just moments after birth. Many of those murders followed failed, illegal abortions, attempted after Pennsylvania’s 24-week limit.

Gosnell’s disregard for the dignity of human life extended to the vulnerable mothers of the infants he was charged with murdering. Prosecutors and former clinic workers testified to the decaying, dangerous operating rooms, stocked with “filthy, corroded” instruments and outdated machines. Despite reports of death, injury, and dangerous conditions, Gosnell’s clinic went uninspected by the state for almost two decades.

In the wake of the Gosnell trial’s disturbing revelations, many are left questioning how the oft-repeated slogan of “safe, legal, and rare” abortions can continue to encompass late-term procedures. After all, just a few weeks earlier or a few inches within the womb, Gosnell would have been well within the law to take the lives of those near-viable infants.

There is broad consensus that late-term abortions shouldn’t take place—either within the filthy walls of 3801 Lancaster Ave. or the more sterile facilities of other providers.

The vast majority of Americans — including nearly 60 percent of women — support limits on dangerous and gruesome late-term abortions performed after 20 weeks. That’s five months, or halfway through pregnancy, when unborn children can feel pain and women are at increased risk for the negative effects of abortion.

National leaders’ failure to protect women and unborn children from late-term abortion has made United States’ policy on abortion extreme among developed nations. The U.S. is currently one of only seven countries in the world—in the company of North Korea and China—in which elective, late-term abortion after 20 weeks is allowed.

Which is why protecting women and children from the harms of late-term abortion is a good and long overdue step to restoring respect for the dignity of every life in law. But it cannot be the last.

Gosnell’s clinic, though one of the more horrific, is not an outlier in the abortion industry. Dozens of other abortion clinics across the country have faced investigations and criminal charges. Many continue their dangerous and life-ending work with little to no oversight or inspection.

Planned Parenthood, the leader in the lucrative abortion industry, performs over 300,000 abortions every year, while receiving over half a billion dollars in annual taxpayer funding. Yet, this is the same organization that allegedly turned a blind eye to the safety of women in at least two of its clinics, has been repeatedly accused of fraud, and opposes commonsense legislation that would protect infants born alive after failed abortions.

In light of the brutality that became commonplace at the infamous West Philadelphia clinic and has appeared elsewhere, both state and federal policymakers should also strengthen safety regulations on abortion clinics and end continued financial support for an industry that creates and supports the likes of Gosnell.

3801 Lancaster Ave. stands vacant today; its murderous owner justly behind bars. The victims of Gosnell’s “House of Horrors,” many of whom remain unnamed and unknown, can be remembered and honored by the protection of other women and children from the dangers of late-term abortion and recklessness of the abortion industry.

U.S. House Passes Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

Bill Smith, ARRA News Service: At 5:33 PM, the U.S. House passed today H.R. 36 by a vote of 242 - 184. H.R. 36 "Will amend title 18, United States Code, to protect pain-capable unborn children after 20-weeks (5 months) of pregnancy up to the day of birth. Four Democrats voting for the bill and five Republicans voted against it. During the debate, 36 courageous pro-life champions in the House gave impassioned speeches in support of the bill.

Attention now turns to the United States Senate. Just because the Republicans have control of the Senate, doesn't mean getting a vote will be easy. While most Republicans in the Senate are pro-life, there are a few Republicans who are not. Then there is the Democratic filibuster.

President Obama has threatened to veto the bill.
