Trump Must Act to Stop Obama Sexual Rights Plan Cloaked as Women's Policy

Susan Yoshihara, Ph.D., Managing Editor, C-Fam: The Obama administration institutionalized its gender agenda through four foreign policy initiatives—three global strategies on gender-based violence and adolescent girls, and one on women, peace and security which we report on this week.

Cloaked in the language of women's rights and non-discrimination, they have effectively transformed the Department of State and the U.S. Military into homosexual advocacy organizations, mandating that our troops and foreign service officers promote sexual rights in countries around the world, even where they are most unwelcome. Most egregiously, the plans hurt women and girls in aid-dependent countries by diverting funding and political capital away from what they really need, such as schools, health clinics, and microfinance opportunities to open small businesses.

Obama Cloaked LGBTI Agenda in Women’s Rights Plan to Thwart Republicans

WASHINGTON, DC, February 17 (C-Fam) An Obama-era executive order on helping women in conflict settings mutated into a vast set of mandates including abortion, homosexual rights, and environmentalism in U.S. defense and diplomatic policy and programs. It remains resistant to President Donald Trump’s recent executive orders. Read More

Norma McCorvey, Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade, Passes Away: She Never Had an Abortion and Became Pro-Life

Norma McCorvey, who was the Jane Roe of the infamous Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court case legalizing virtually unlimited abortions, passed away today. McCorvey never had an abortion and eventually became pro-life and dedicated her life to overturning the horrible Supreme Court decision that bared her pseudonym.

McCorvey died today at an assisted-living facility in Katy, Texas. She was 69.

McCorvey never wanted an abortion — she was seeking a divorce from her husband — but young, pro-abortion feminist attorney Sarah Weddington used McCorvey’s case as a means of attempting to overturn Texas’ law making most abortions illegal. Weddington took the case all the way to the Supreme Court, which invalidated every pro-life state law in the nation protecting unborn children and the rest is history.

But most Americans don’t know that McCorvey, who was “pro-choice” on abortion at the time, became a pro-life advocate. She dedicated to reversing the Supreme Court case that bears her fictitious name, Jane Roe. . . .

“Back in 1973, I was a very confused twenty-one year old with one child and facing an unplanned pregnancy,” she says in the ad. “At the time I fought to obtain a legal abortion, but truth be told, I have three daughters and never had an abortion.”

“I think it’s safe to say that the entire abortion industry is based on a lie…. I am dedicated to spending the rest of my life undoing the law that bears my name,” McCorvey says. . . . Read More

France Passes Law Imposing Up To Two Years Prison For Running Pro-life Websites

The French National Assembly in session
Jeanne Smits, Paris Correspondent, Life Site News: The French National Assembly has adopted legislation to make what it calls “spreading misleading information” about abortion punishable with up to a two-year prison sentence and a fine.

The law specifically targets “electronic” and “online” means of spreading information with the intention of dissuading women from ending their pregnancy, but its wording is not restrictive. By and large, any person or group aiming to call public attention to the dangers and risks of abortion will be potentially at risk of prosecution.

Thursday’s vote was the final stage of a lawmaking process that saw various versions of the text come alternately before the Assembly and the Senate. The upper house repeatedly tried to impose less severe wording without trying to scrap the law entirely. In the absence of an agreement between the two governing bodies, the National Assembly has the last word and so it achieved its aim of virtually outlawing pro-life speech.

The law was adopted by a show of hands – an indication that few lawmakers were present in the Chamber – during which all left-wing representatives present as well as a majority of the centrists voted for the measure. It is the latest in a series of pro-abortion laws that have made “voluntary interruption of pregnancy,” as the French euphemism goes, a purely elective and 100 percent publicly-funded “fundamental right” since socialist François Hollande came into power five years ago.

The criminalization of negative information on abortion is the result of a process that began when members of Hollande’s socialist government realized that Google searches were linking women to pro-life groups. These sites explain the risks and realities of the procedure and where to find assistance to help women keep their baby.

The Ministry of Health responded by putting up a government information site on abortion that is limited to providing details about access to the procedure. It also characterizes as "misconceptions' the allegations that abortion can have negative side effects and cause health problems or psychological consequences. Included is a page on “misinformation about voluntary interruption of pregnancy” that claims there are pro-life sites masquerading as information sites. Women are urged to link to Planned Parenthood or sites that list abortion center addresses. There is no information on help and public subsidies for expectant mothers.

This initiative did not suffice to gag the pro-life sites the government wanted to relegate to insignificance. So it came up with a new law. It in effect expands an existing ban on “moral and psychological pressure searching to hinder abortion that was adopted in 2001 in order to stop peaceful pro-life activists from speaking to women planning an abortion or organizing demonstrations near abortion centers in clinics and public hospitals."

The law was rarely used, but Dr. Xavier Dor, a well-known elderly and almost blind pro-lifer, was fined heavily for having given knitted baby boots to a woman he spoke to in the public stairway of the building where Planned Parenthood has its Paris offices.

The new law imposed the same punishment – a maximum of two years imprisonment and a $30,000 fine – on any manner of “spreading or transmitting allegations or indications liable to intentionally mislead, with the purpose of deterring (from abortion), on the characteristics or medical consequences of a voluntary interruption of abortion.”

The Republican (center right) party said the law was a deliberate infringement of freedom of expression and voted against. They also intend to submit the text to the Constitutional Council in the hope of having it declared contrary to the French Constitution.

But while the party was in power, it made no move to abrogate the existing law that already bans “moral and psychological pressure” aiming to dissuade a woman from having an abortion. This has become a pattern in France over the last 40 years since abortion was made legal. All aggravating texts, once voted into law by the left, have never been disputed by the right when it came back into power.

Marisol Touraine, the minister of health, said the law exclusively targets websites that do not present themselves as being pro-life while aiming to deter women from having abortions. Laurence Rossignol, minister for women’s rights, said opponents to abortion would still be free to voice their opinion “under the condition they openly state who they are, what they do and what they want.”

However, the wording of the law does not match this restriction. As it stands, it can be used to prosecute those with any “information” that presents abortion in an unfavorable light and pushes women not to choose abortion. The law does not define who has authority to judge whether information is officially “misleading.” That will be up to judges in principle and specifically to health and government officials.

If government information on abortion is anything to go by, misinformation is likely to run rampant. It calls surgical abortion an “aspiration of the egg” and asserts that “abortion is not the removing of a life,” as Rossignol said in the National Assembly.

Jean-Marie Le Méné, president of the Fondation Lejeune, commented: “That which dissuades from abortion is not false information, but correct information.”

During the parliamentary debate, Rossignol went on record as saying: “Freedom of expression does not signify a right to lying.” That is why pro-lifers in France are slamming a law that attempts to prevent expression of an inconvenient truth.

Arkansas House Passes Bill Banning Abortions Based Solely On Baby’s Sex

Arkansas took an important first step this week to becoming the eighth state to ban abortions based solely on the sex of the baby. On Tuesday, the House voted 79-3 in favor of House Bill 1434, the Sex Discrimination by Abortion Prohibition Act.

The Associated Press ;reported, “The bottom line is it’s just the right thing to do to have this in the law,” Republican Rep. Charlie Collins told lawmakers before the vote.

The measure has now moved onto the state Senate.

The prohibition is already the law in Arizona, Kansas, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and South Dakota, according to Ingrid Duran, NRLC’s Director of State Legislation.

HB 1434 reads in part:
“A physician or other person shall not intentionally perform or attempt to perform an abortion with the knowledge that the pregnant woman is seeking the abortion solely on the basis of the sex of the unborn child… . . . Read More

House Reverses Obama’s Planned Parenthood Rule!

Funding for Planned Parenthood will no longer be protected by former President Obama’s Executive Order. The House has passed the necessary legislation to put these funds under the proper control. The various States can now decide how they want to distribute these funds and not be restricted by executive edict.

Republicans passed legislation on Thursday reversing former President Barack Obama’s lame-duck ban on states withholding taxpayer funds from Planned Parenthood.

The resolution will undermine a December order from the Obama administration that prevented states from blocking taxpayer funding of abortion clinics. Bill sponsor Rep. Diane Black (R., Tenn.) said on the House floor that state lawmakers should have the final say over how taxpayer dollars for medical care are distributed in their local communities.

“We are simply voting today to affirm the right of states to fund the healthcare providers that best suit their needs, without fear of reprisal from their own federal government,” Black said in a floor speech before the vote. “As a state legislator, I worked within my authority to make sure that Tennessee honored the will of our pro-life populace and steered our state’s share of Title X dollars away from health care providers that perform abortion.”

State efforts to redirect taxpayer dollars away from abortion clinics began to gain momentum after the Center for Medical Progress released undercover video of Planned Parenthood workers and executives discussing their organ harvesting operations.

24 states introduced or passed legislation that would have denied funding to the nation’s largest abortion provider, which receives about $500 million from taxpayers each year. If the resolution passes, state lawmakers could once again deny those funds to Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood decried the resolution in a press release. President Cecile Richards said that her organization plans on using the vote to mobilize opposition to Republican…..

Congressional Bill Would Protect Doctors and Nurses Who Refuse to Assist Abortions

Leading pro-life and faith-based organizations are asking members of Congress to support new legislation that would provide healthcare providers who conscientiously object to abortions the right not to participate in the life-destroying procedure.

The bill, the Conscience Protection Act, was introduced in Congress last year and it passed the U.S. House but was not voted on in the U.S. Senate. Leading pro-life members of Congress are trying again.

The measure also protects health insurance companies that oppose abortion and would rather not cover the procedure. California is one example of a state that currently forces health insurance companies and faith-based groups to comply with elective abortion coverage, with no exemptions based on religious opposition. The Department of Health and Human Services civil rights office declared that faith based organizations in California were mandated to provide abortion coverage.

Because of that, key pro-life and faith groups want Congress to take action. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has backed the legislation, as well as the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. . . . Read More

Alveda King: Sick of Pro-Abortion Politicians Using Race-Baiting to Deceive Black Voters

Life News.com: Alveda King, the niece of Doctor Martin Luther King Jr, has released a pro-life message for Black History Month. The Civil Rights leader says she is sick and tired of pro-abortion politicians using race-baiting to deceive black voters into supporting them.

“For years liberals and progressives have skillfully appealed to the Black communities, vying for the African American vote while maintaining that abortion is good for blacks and, conversely, that those who are pro-life are somehow anti-African American,” King told LifeNews in a statement.

King says abortion funding is one way pro-abortion liberal politicians falsely use race to appeal to black voters.

“They have alleged that the Hyde Amendment, for instance, is inherently racist and that those who support it must be the same. It’s one of those race baiting charges that makes no sense,” King explains.

“For example: When Congress held a hearing last year on the Hyde Amendment and the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen couldn’t resist playing the race card. He started by saying, “Controlling women’s reproductive processes has been something that men have done for years, or tried to do,” then moved on to add, ”And women since the days of slavery were very much encouraged to have children, because that was good, because you needed lots of more property to bring the crops to make the money,” she said.

“So, as the Congressman not so subtly inferred, if you don’t want your tax dollars to pay for the dismemberment of low-income mothers’ unborn children – or any unborn children for that matter – you must be like 19th century slave owners. In short, you must be a racist. Really? Twisted attempt to pervert justice,” King added.

“Think about it. Why would Congressman Cohen’s imagined “racist” want more people of color to be born? Wouldn’t a racist want there to be fewer African Americans and Latinos?” she asked.

King says Planned Parenthood continues the racist mission of Margaret Sanger.

She said: “Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, certainly would want fewer poor people around. Sanger, who happily spoke to a women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan and received invitations to speak to a dozen more, said, ‘Birth control… means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks – those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.’”

King continued: “Mrs. Sanger was a progressive in her era and she would be a progressive today, supporting the race baiters and calling for an end to the Hyde Amendment. She wanted fewer of those she called “unfit.” She wanted what she called “a cleaner race.”

She concluded: “It’s time that we stop allowing ourselves to be divided. Those who use ethnicity, skin color, political preference, religion, income, gender, physical ability or lack of such, or any other classification to divide our communities for their own political gain ultimately do not care for us. They care for themselves and their power.”

Former Catholic Priest: Used to Pray Outside Abortion Clinics, Now Supports Abortion

No Longer a Priest
- Now Pro-Death!
Dan Murtah used to be a Catholic priest. He used to stand outside of abortion clinics in the United Kingdom and pray for women and babies with other priests and pro-lifers.

In a column for The Huffington Post this week, Murtah said he now regrets those pro-life prayers on the sidewalk. He no longer is a priest, and now believes that opposition to abortion is little more than a religious belief.

... Murtah said he now believes the government should not get involved in abortion, what he says is a religious issue. He based his position on the inaccurate claim that there is no evidence that life begins at conception, and being pro-life is merely a religious viewpoint.

“Religious belief is only that – an assumption that something is true even if scientific evidence is lacking,” Murtah wrote. “There is no evidence that life begins at conception, however because there is a lack of scientific consensus religion is inclined to plug the gap with belief.”

[EDITOR: wait a minute]

. . . Last spring, scientists at Northwestern University in Chicago further confirmed this with an interesting finding. The research team not only noted that human life begins at conception, but also video-recorded a spark of light that takes place when the new life forms.

Some abortion activists also admit that life begins at conception. These include abortion practitioners, both current and former. Curtis Boyd, a New Mexico abortionist and founding member of the National Abortion Federation, is one of them.

“Am I killing? Yes, I am. I know that,” Boyd once said.

Murtah probably should start doing some more research.
[EDITOR; Thank the Lord - He is no longer a priest!]

Rev. Franklin Graham Says Planned Parenthood is “Hitleristic,” and “Death Is Their Prescription”

Rev. Franklin Graham condemned the deadly work of Planned Parenthood on Friday, describing its abortion practices as “Hitleristic.”

Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham and founder of Samaritan’s Purse, has been a vocal advocate for babies in the womb throughout his ministry.

On Facebook on Friday, Graham addressed the current issue of defunding Planned Parenthood.

The new U.S. Congress is working on legislation to defund the abortion group, and President Donald Trump previously said he would support such a measure. The legislation would redirect tax dollars to federally-qualified community health clinics that offer more comprehensive care but don’t perform abortions.

“Planned Parenthood—the country’s largest abortion provider—received over $353 million in private donations according to a recent annual report. Why on earth would Congress give them another $550 million in government grants and reimbursements?” Graham wrote.

Planned Parenthood does approximately 320,000 abortions every year – totaling close to 1 million in the past three years, according to its own annual reports. Graham called these numbers a “tragedy.”

“Taxpayer dollars, withheld from American paychecks should never be used to fund a Hitleristic organization whose conduct many see as insidious, evil, unjust, and even criminal,” he continued. “How do they keep on slaughtering little ones, and yet portray themselves as health clinics? Death is their prescription.” . . . Read More @ LifeNews

Trump’s Order to Defund Internationa; Planned Parenthood May Close Abortion Clinics

Joseph and Daisy Pardo are hopeful U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s reinstitution of the Mexico City Policy will speed the closure of an International Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Puerto Rico.

But in the meantime, they’re celebrating the closure of two privately owned abortion businesses in early 2017, as well as an upcoming birth for a young woman with a remarkable story.

The Pardos direct the first stand-along pregnancy help center in Puerto Rico, having relocated their family of six from Tampa, Fla., in the fall of 2015. Until recently, their center, Cree Women’s Care, had been situated within just a couple hundred feet of two abortion clinics on a one-way street.

Now, just one remains. In early January, abortion practitioner Santiago Diaz abruptly shuttered both his clinic next door to Cree and his second location, which had operated directly in front of the main hospital in San Juan—and right next door to its abortion industry competitor, “Clinica Iella,” a local affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).

Just three days after his inauguration, Jan. 23, President Trump reinstated a policy that keeps $100 million out of the hands of IPPF as part of the broader protection of $607.5 million in overseas funding that now cannot go toward international organizations that promote or perform abortions. . . .

Pro-Family Groups to Trump: Make Religious Freedom Great Again

Family Policy Alliance: Family Policy Alliance and its alliance of 40 state-based groups is sending a letter urging President Trump to sign a religious freedom Executive Order.

The order would strengthen protections for individuals and business owners who don’t want to be forced to violate their deeply held beliefs.

“On the campaign trail, the President repeatedly told evangelical groups he would do everything he could to strengthen protections for religious freedom,” explained Paul Weber, president and CEO of Family Policy Alliance. “President Trump now has the chance to stand up to the bullying against people of faith and to lead Congress in enacting strong religious freedom protections by signing this Executive Order.”

Federally, groups like Little Sisters of the Poor were forced to sue the government for tryng to force them to provide contraceptives in their healthcare plans – a violation of the teaching of their Catholic faith.

Individuals in several states had their livelihood threatened because they refused to compromise their faith to participate in same-sex weddings.

“Our network of organizations has been advocating for policy that would ensure that families in our states do not have to forfeit their faith when they do charitable work, provide education or healthcare, earn a living, start a business, or interact with their own government,” said Autumn Leva, policy director for Family Policy Alliance. “This has been difficult in a climate of government-endorsed hostility toward religion, and American families have been told to keep their faith private. President Trump’s Executive Order would be a breath of fresh air on the state of religious freedom in this country.”

TAKE ACTION
Ask President Trump to sign the religious freedom executive order. And don’t forget to share this with family and friends.

Pelosi to Adopted Student: Women Like Your Mom Must Be Able To Choose Whether To Give Birth

Pro-abortion House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi was quizzed on her abortion support by a pro-life student who was adopted at a CNN townhall. In response, Pelosi told the student that it was important that her birth mother had the ability to "choose" whether to abort or give birth to her, and went on to suggest that pro-life activists aren't concerned with the wellbeing of children after they're born.

"I am part of the pro-life generation," said college student Brianna Kristyn Roberts. "I believe that abortion is not the answer for unplanned pregnancy.

"My birthmother was faced with a decision that many women today are facing. Without the means of properly raising a child, she chose the most ethical decision and chose adoption. ... I now have the ability to thrive and succeed in life. Don’t you think that everyone … needs the ability to thrive and succeed in life?"

"I certainly do, and I love the word you used," Pelosi, who says she is Catholic, retorted. "You said, ‘my mother chose.’ My mother chose. And we want people to ... have that opportunity to choose as well."

What exactly mothers should be able to choose the California Congresswoman didn't specify. But she did imply that people who oppose abortion haven't done enough to help children. . . . Read More

Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood Clinic Hurts 2 Women in 3 Weeks in Botched Abortions

For the second time in three weeks, an ambulance has transported a patient from the Margaret Sanger Center Planned Parenthood abortion facility in New York City.

According to a pro-life activist who snapped photos of the incident, an ambulance arrived around noon on February 4, 2017, and emergency responders entered the Planned Parenthood center. Paramedics soon returned to the ambulance for a gurney. At approximately 12:25 p.m., they emerged with a patient on the gurney with her head covered with a black cloth.

“We have studied hundreds of medical emergencies at abortion facilities, and it seems like 25 minutes is an unusually long time for paramedics to be on the scene,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We don’t really know what happened, but one reasonable possibility is that it took the paramedics time to stabilize the patient before transporting her.”

Other medical emergencies documented by Operation Rescue at this same Planned Parenthood abortion facility include the following:

• January 18, 2017: A woman was removed from the abortion facility on a gurney and wheeled to the ambulance, passing under a large pink banner that ironically read “Healthcare happens.”
• November 4, 2016: African-American woman who was carted out of Planned Parenthood in a wheelchair, put onto a stretcher, and loaded into an awaiting ambulance.
• March 1, 2016: African-American woman was brought out of the abortion facility in a wheelchair and helped into ambulance.
• May 4, 2013: Ambulance transport woman from Margaret Sanger Center Planned Parenthood.
Cecile Richards, the CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America has stated, “The healthcare and the safety of our patients is our most important priority.”

However, the frequency of recent medical emergencies at their flag-ship New York abortion facility says otherwise. . . . Read More

Pro-Life Dr. Tom Price Sworn In As HHS Secretary

ARRA News Service: Early today, the US Senate voted 52-47 along party lines to confirm pro-life Congressman (Dr.) Tom Price for Secretary of the Health and Human Services. Price is an orthopedic surgeon.

Addressing Obamacare, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi said, “We’re relying on him for a lot of the confirmation on the ‘repeal,’ ‘repair’ and ‘replace.’ He’s the perfect one to do it, he’s a medical doctor that’s had a wide range of experience.”

Price has a long pro-life voting record as a member of Congress and has voted pro life 100% of the time according to the National Right to Life Committee.

In a statement about the nomination, Trump said Price has earned a reputation for being a “tireless problem solver” and “the go-to expert on healthcare policy.” “He is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring affordable and accessible healthcare to every American.”

Vice President Mike Pence swore in Dr. Tom Price as HHS Secretary.

New Senator Luther Strange Replacing Jeff Sessions is Pro-Life

Sen. Luther Strange
Now that pro-life Senator Jeff Sessions has been confirmed by the Senate as the new Attorney General, Alabama has replaced him with another equally pro-life senator.

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley appointed State Attorney General Luther Strange to fill Sessions’ Senate seat. The good news for the pro-life Community is that Strange is just as pro-life as sessions, it had a 100% pro-life voting record and excoriated Roe vs. Wade was one of the worst Supreme Court cases in history.

During his tenure as the Alabama Attorney General, Strange worked hard to uphold pro-life legislation taken to courts by abortion advocates.

A couple years ago, an Alabama court issued a ruling saying the state’s chemical endangerment of a child law also includes protection for unborn children. Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange issued a statement calling the decision a victory.

Strange said the court ruled that “the plain meaning of the word ‘child’ in the chemical endangerment statute includes unborn children.”

“The Court has ratified our argument that the public policy of our state is to protect life, both born and unborn,” Strange stated. “It is a tremendous victory that the Alabama Supreme Court has affirmed the value of all life, including those of unborn children whose lives are among the most vulnerable of all.” . . .
