Planned Parenthood President: My Childrens’ Lives Began at Delivery, Not Conception< Despite its status as the nation’s biggest abortion business, Planned Parenthood very rarely talks about abortion — and it almost never talks about the development of unborn children. The abortion giant essentially admitted long ago that science was not on its side in the abortion debate, since basic biological facts of fetal development and the advent of 3-D and 4-D ultrasounds clearly depict a human being growing and developing in the womb before birth.

Beautiful Photo of Noah, Miscarried at 12 Weeks, Shows Unborn Baby’s Humanity Baby Noah died from a spontaneous miscarriage on February 20th, 2014.

Even though he passed away, his perfectly formed body displays the development of a new human life, the most spectacular miracle on earth. Read More

Fifth Abortion Clinic Closes in 2014 as California Biz Shuts Down Liberalization of California’s abortion laws last year could not save the Family Planning Associates abortion clinic in Montclair, California, which has closed due to a lost lease. The building is up for sale and there are currently no plans to reopen the clinic at another location. All services are expected to halt by the end of February, but furnishings stacked behind the clinic near a large dumpster, which was loaded with medical and office equipment, more furniture, brochures, and even money bags from a local bank, indicate that the business is finished.

Dad Surprises Fiancée by Marrying Her While She’s Giving Birth to Their Baby Talk about a shotgun wedding! One dad just couldn’t wait for his fiancé to be done birthing their child before he made her his wife. Brandi Wetzel was laboring away at a hospital in Fort Worth, Texas on Tuesday when her intended suddenly “ran to the store.” Unbeknownst to her, James Anderson had dashed off to find a ring and to enlist the nurses’ help in staging an impromptu wedding in the maternity ward. The couple has been engaged since last August, but it seems like dad really didn’t like the idea of their second child together being born out of wedlock. Read More

March Event-in-a-Box!

Kristan, Students for Life of America: Abortion has never been about compassion for women or even about choice. Since the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions in 1973, nearly 400 women (like Tonya Reaves) have died from this supposedly “safe” procedure, and over 56 million children have died at the hands of abortionists.

Despite the evidence at hand, Planned Parenthood continues to hail the safety and practicality of this procedure (ignoring the physical and mental risks involved). Why? Because abortion is profit. It is a profit gained from vulnerable women who are deceived into believing that killing their child is the only choice in a desperate situation.

The bottomline: Abortion equals profit. Abortion providers do not profit when a woman chooses life for her child. On Planned Parenthood’s 2011-2012 annual report, the records show that there is only 1 adoption referral for every 145 abortions*. Even more frightening, 92% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services (i.e. prenatal services, abortion procedures, and adoption referrals) documented were abortions. The abortion Goliath has mastered the art of creating a customer that leads to their greatest profit. (See full explanation here.)

Nevertheless, many Planned Parenthood advocates will attempt to justify support of organizations with statements like, “But Planned Parenthood offers so many other valuable services to women and to the community! You shouldn’t reject or defund an organization just because they do one bad service!” Unfortunately, these individuals deny the truth of the matter– namely, that abortion kills children and exploits women. No other service, low-cost procedure, or supposedly “good deed” performed by such an organization can justify the blood money being made in abortions.

This month, we challenge you to help us expose the true nature of Planned Parenthood as a business built on greed, not compassion. Help us expose Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry on your campus and in your community, and join us in actively promoting life-affirming pregnancy resource centers.

Planned Parenthood to Spend $15 Million in 2014 Keeping Senate in Democrat Hands No pro-lifer doubts the political muscle of Planned Parenthood’s “political entities”– the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Votes. As a key component of the Democratic Party’s “left of center” coalition, they have access to gazillions of dollars and a voice—a large voice—at the table. But besides the usual self-congratulation and soft-peddle treatment by the mainstream media, what else can we learn from Alexander Burns’ “Planned Parenthood reveals big 2014 game plan,” which ran in Wednesday’s POLITICO?

Patricia Heaton’s Gutsy Tweet About Margaret Sanger and Black Abortions Hollywood is known for its liberal ideology and agenda, and few actors stand out as outspokenly pro-life. Celebrities who publicly oppose abortion are diamonds in the rough, and one of these — who has been an audacious pro-lifer for years — is Everybody Loves Raymond’s Patricia Heaton. Once in a while, Heaton takes to Twitter to voice her pro-life convictions, like when she tweeted multiple times during the Gosnell trial in April about the horrors of his practice. She even called out network television for its silence on the matter (undeterred by the fact that she is employed by one such network — ABC — where she currently stars on its primetime comedy, The Middle).

Whites Outnumber Blacks in Mississippi But 72% of Aborted Babies Are Black
The pro-life movement has pointed out for years that the abortion industry, including the Planned Parenthood abortion business, targets black women and Hispanics. The way in which it targets black women in more apparent today after a news report shows almost three-fourths of abortions in Mississippi, where a majority of residents are white, are done on black babies. According to a Life Issues Institute study, 79 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion centers are located in minority neighborhoods. Read More

Man Comes Back to Life After Being Pronounced Clinically Dead for 45 Minutes A man who doctors pronounced clinically dead came back to life 45 minutes after his death had been called. Brian Miller’s coming back to life is a reminder of the problems of declaring patients dead too quickly and either removing their life support or stopping further medical treatment. This is also a cautionary tale for patients who are organ donors, where doctors may too quickly began cutting up patients who are not really dead to begin harvesting their organs for donations.

Planned Parenthood Told Them Their Abortion Was Risk-Free, Now They Can’t Have Children There’s a group of women Planned Parenthood doesn’t want to talk about. In fact, they won’t even admit they exist. They’ll gladly usher vulnerable women into their abortion chambers. But when those very same women experience physical or psychological effects of their abortion, they’re considered an anomaly. They don’t fit the façade the abortion industry has carefully built for public consumption. According to the Planned Parenthood website, there are no long-term risks associated with abortion. They reject any link between abortion and breast cancer. Read More

The Abortion Olympics

Marjorie Dannenfelser, President, Susan B. Anthony Lis : Did you watch the Sochi Olympics at all?

If so, you know it was a pretty tough winter for Team USA. We left with only nine gold medals – coming in fourth place for the gold medal count.

It was a tough break – but here’s something tougher: If late abortion was an Olympic category, the U.S. would get a silver medal.

You see, we are 1 of 7 shameful countries to allow unrestricted, brutal late abortions after 20 weeks – that’s after the 5th month of pregnancy and the point at which research shows the baby feels pain.

Our research arm, the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), compiled the report on international abortion laws which found that the U.S. is far outside the international norm – and in bad company. After investigating 199 countries with a population of a million or more, CLI found that:
  • The laws of 140 countries protect unborn babies to some extent.
  • Nearly sixty countries permit elective abortions but with some baby-protective limits.
  • The United States, Canada, China, North Korea, Vietnam, Singapore, and the Netherlands are the only 7 countries to allow elective abortions of unborn children who are twenty weeks and older.
If those 7 countries are ordered by population size, the U.S. gets a silver medal in the category of late abortions, outranked only by China. This is yet another reason why it is critical we ramp up our lobbying efforts to have the U.S. Senate vote on and pass the historic Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the advance similar legislation in the states.

A silver medal for extremely permissive abortion laws is nothing to be proud of. We’ve got to get the CLI data and other research into the hands of Senators and urge them relentlessly to take up this important legislation. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would save the lives of more than 18,000 children per year.

Right now in the United States, the law permits elective abortions – even on babies more than halfway through pregnancy. According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute (formerly the research arm of Planned Parenthood), 23 percent of U.S. abortionists will do these brutal abortions

At this late stage of pregnancy, abortions are carried out by either D&E (Dilation and Evacuation) abortion, where the baby’s arms and legs are broken off with manual force, or saline injection abortion in which the baby is stabbed with a needle and injected with saline solution, which burns the developing skin before killing the unborn child.

The majority is on our side. Poll after poll confirms that most Americans are simply horrified by our nations’ extremely permissive laws and support ending abortion after 20 weeks. That’s why thirteen state legislatures have already voted on related legislation to protect 20 week babies. And as Emily told you last week – similar bills are already moving in 4 states. Your SBA List is involved in every fight, working to protect babies everywhere we can.

South Carolina House Panel Passes Bill to Ban Abortions After 20 Weeks
A South Carolina state House committee has a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks based on scientific evidence showing unborn children feel pain. Currently the state allows abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy unless the life of the mother is at risk. A National Right to Life Committee poll found that 63 percent of Americans, and 70 percent of women, support a ban on post-fetal pain abortion in Washington, D.C.

A new report authored by Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) associate scholar Angelina Baglini and co-released today by CLI and Life Canada finds that the United States and Canada join China, North Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, and Netherlands in allowing abortion beyond 20 weeks, more than halfway through pregnancy and the point at which research shows the unborn child feels pain.

Navy plan falls short on promising religious expression, says former chaplain

by Chad Groening, One News Now: A former U.S. Navy chaplain and Christian activist says there are a number of things missing from a newly released report on the Navy's plan for religious ministry.

The Navy Chaplains Corps has released the Department of the Navy's Strategic Plan for Religious Ministry 2014-2019.

The four-page document said it is the commitment of the Navy Chaplain Corps to deliver religious ministry characterized by cooperation, tolerance, mutual respect, and respect for diversity.

Gordon Klingenschmitt says there is one important element the strategic plan didn't include.

"It does not have any language whatsoever about religious freedom, or religious liberty, or being an advocate for sailors with regard to their religious expression," he argues.

Those allowances didn't seem to "come upon the radar" of senior leaders in the Chaplain Corps, he alleges.

Klingenschmitt operates the "Pray In Jesus Name Project," which advocates for religious freedom for chaplains.

Klingenschmitt, Gordon (former Navy chaplain)The former chaplain says Chaplain Corps leaders tend to be liberal chaplains who never rock the religious boat.

For example, he says, they don't pray in Jesus name or defend the rights of junior chaplains to pray in Jesus name, or the right of Jewish sailors to eat kosher food, or the right of the Muslim sailors to pray to Allah.

"These are things I defended and I advocated for," he tells OneNewsNow.

Klingenschmitt thinks it's a serious omission from the strategic plan.

An On-Going Journey

Silent No More Campaign - Angelina, Ontario, Canada: Forty years ago I had an abortion to erase the result of a date rape. My world felt unreal until the icy cold instruments entered my body. I felt severe physical pain. Told to be still, I was assured it wouldn't take long.

Next, I heard the sound of a high-pitched vacuum cleaner that sucked out the contents of my womb. As I saw the bottle next to my right foot fill up with blood, I wondered, "Is there a baby? Is there soul? Who sees what I'm doing?"

More Black Babies Die in Abortions in New York City Than Given Birth The good news in New York City, often referred to as the abortion capital of America, is that the abortion rate is under 40% for the first time in decades. But CNS News indicates there is some bad news as well — namely, that more black babies are killed in abortions than given birth. In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Read More

The pro-life community often condemns wrongful birth or wrongful life lawsuits — filed by couples who are upset they did not know their unborn baby would have some sort of physical or mental disability and who would have had an abortion had they known. Such lawsuits show a lack of regard and respect for human life, even if “imperfect” from what an expecting couple would hope for with their baby. Read More

American College of Pediatricians Blasts Belgium for Legalizing Child Euthanasia While the Belgian media seems genuinely perplexed why much of the rest of the world is shocked by its new policy making children eligible for euthanasia, until today I hadn’t read a response from any part of the American Medical Establishment. What did the pillars of medicine here in the United States think about a nation so out of control that barely half of the assisted deaths in the Flemish region of Belgium were reported yet would brazenly double down and go after helpless children?

Sweden has signed this agreement. But reality paints a different picture. Out of the 47 member states in the European Council, Finland and Sweden are the only two which do not uphold freedom of conscience in practice. Ellinor Grimmark, 37, is the first midwife in Sweden to report a hospital to the Discrimination Ombudsman (DO) concerning abortion. Read More

Abortion and The Heart Cases: I Am Not The Rapist’s Child Wow! I hate that phrase. “Rapist’s child”, “rapist’s baby”, “rape baby”, or “product of rape”—all equally despicable, yet intentional, pejoratives used by abortion activists to debase those conceived in such horrid violence. As if these revilers had any control over the circumstances of their own conception, they stand as judge and executioner of human beings with the exact same cellular makeup. Do we refer to children as the “drug dealer’s child” or the “adulterer’s child?” President Obama’s alcoholic father was married multiple times. In fact, his NOT-THE-RAPISTS-CHILD-FBfather was married to two different women concurrently. Do we call Obama the “bigamist’s child” or the “alcoholic’s child”? Read More

Although I’m Agnostic, I’m Proudly Pro-Life In a 2010 survey, Americans stated that the group of people that they trust the least is people of no religion. The study went on to say that Americans see irreligion as more suspect than other controversial lifestyles, including homosexuality. In this less than welcoming climate, it is easy to see how, for some young people, opening up about their lack of faith is to akin to coming out of the closet, so to speak. Being an atheist or agnostic in America isn’t the easiest of tasks. Likewise being a pro-life college student on a campus where the key age demographic (18-24) accounts for 44 percent of abortions performed isn’t a cake walk either. Yet I remain steadfastly pro-life and agnostic; as one secular person I know has described it, we are a minority within a minority. Read More
