Cardinal Raymond Burke: Joe Biden Could Face Excommunication for Promoting Abortion

Cardinal Raymond Burke: Joe Biden Could Face Excommunication for Promoting Abortion

Catholic Cardinal Raymond Burke recently made the case for pro-abortion politicians like President Joe Biden to be excommunicated from the Catholic Church because of their “open and aggressive” apostasy.

Biden’s radical pro-abortion agenda coupled with his insistence that he is a devout Catholic have caused massive controversy in the Catholic Church. Some bishops, including Burke, have said the president should not receive communion unless he repents, but others disagree.

Burke, a leading expert in Canon Law and former head of the Vatican’s highest court, discussed the controversy in a March interview with Thomas McKenna of Catholic Action for Faith and Family.

Assisted Suicide Continues the Genocide That Has Targeted Disabled People for a Century

Assisted Suicide Continues the Genocide That Has Targeted Disabled People for a Century

JAMA Internal Medicine hosted a fiery debate about Dutch euthanasia this week. Geriatrician Diane E. Meier, of the Icahn School of Medicine, New York, responded feistily to critics of an editorial which she had written in December, headlined “The Treatment of Patients With Unbearable Suffering—The Slippery Slope Is Real.”

Two teams of Dutch physicians responded with reassurances that “all of these Dutch cases of physician-assisted suicide are characterized by a vital patient-physician relationship and that all these requests are voluntary and well considered” and that “instances of physician-assisted suicide always follow the letter of the law and never involve family, financial, or other pressures.”

40 Days for Life Campaign Has Saved 353 Babies From Abortion So Far

40 Days for Life Campaign Has Saved 353 Babies From Abortion So Far

We now know of 353 babies spared from abortion since February 17–with more reports coming in every day!

Abortion supporters argue that abortion is healthcare…but one step inside an abortion facility is enough to convince many women there’s something deeply disturbing about the practice.

“The people at the abortion clinic freaked me out,” a 17-week-pregnant mother told vigil participants in Sacramento, California.

The expectant mother had already seen an ultrasound and knew her child is a boy, but relationship problems with the child’s father led her to make an abortion appointment.

Vigil participants prayed with the woman, exchanged phone numbers, and offered support, but she went home noncommittal about continuing her pregnancy.

Pope Francis Condemns Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome: “Every Child is a Gift”

Pope Francis Condemns Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome: “Every Child is a Gift”

Pope Francis celebrated World Down Syndrome Day on Sunday by recognizing that every child, born and unborn, is a gift to the world.

“Every child who a woman expects in her womb is a gift that changes a family’s history: the life of fathers and mothers, grandparents and of brothers and sisters,” the pope wrote on Twitter.

More than ever before, people with Down syndrome are thriving and reaching new achievements. Some even attend college, own businesses and get married. And while society has become more accepting and supportive of people with disabilities outside the womb, the same cannot be said of those diagnosed with disabilities before birth.

Pushback in Ireland over euthanasia bill: ‘This isn’t a gentle, peaceful death’

Pushback in Ireland over euthanasia bill: ‘This isn’t a gentle, peaceful death’

Opponents of euthanasia are pushing back against a bill in Ireland meant to legalize it. They argue that while it is widely believed that euthanasia is reserved only for those in unbearable pain and facing certain death, this is untrue. They are concerned that legalizing assisted dying will take the focus away from helping people to live well and refocus it on helping them to commit suicide.

A leading palliative care doctor and member of the House of Lords, Ilora Finlay, spoke of the dangers of the legislation at a recent End of Life Matters conference. She noted that based on a 2019 Health Authority report from Oregon, people seek death by assisted suicide because they feel “less able to engage in activities making life enjoyable” or the fear they will be a “burden on family, friends, and caregivers.”

Supreme Court Could Take Mississippi Abortion Ban Case That Challenges Roe v. Wade

Supreme Court Could Take Mississippi Abortion Ban Case That Challenges Roe v. Wade

For more than six months, the U.S. Supreme Court has been delaying a decision about a Mississippi pro-life law that bans abortions after 15 weeks.

And on Monday, it did so again.

Last summer, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch, the first female to hold the position, asked the Supreme Court to hear the case and allow the state to protect unborn babies from abortions.

But the justices have not issued a decision about whether they even want to hear the case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Initially, National Review writer Ed Whelan expressed optimism about the case, arguing that it could be “the best opportunity the Supreme Court will ever have to overturn Roe v.

Mississippi Governor Signs Bill Saving Babies With Down Syndrome From Abortions

Mississippi Governor Signs Bill Saving Babies With Down Syndrome From Abortions

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves signed a pro-life law last week to provide resources and encouragement to families of children with Down syndrome.

The Down Syndrome Information Act aims to combat the high abortion rate for unborn babies diagnosed with the genetic disorder by requiring medical facilities to provide information and support to parents facing the diagnosis, according to the Christian Post.

Among other things, it requires medical professionals to explain details about their child’s development, medical needs and treatment options, as well as support programs and other resources to help individuals and families with Down syndrome.

The pro-life bill passed with bipartisan support, including unanimous support in the Mississippi Senate.

Singer with cystic fibrosis wins golden ticket to Hollywood on American Idol

Singer with cystic fibrosis wins golden ticket to Hollywood on American Idol

by Administrator

A 15-year-old girl recently got a golden ticket on American Idol, meaning she will advance to the Hollywood round of auditions. But what makes her stand out is that she also has cystic fibrosis (CF), and overcame many obstacles to win the hearts of the judges.

Brianna Collichio is from Spencerport, New York, and performed Alessia Cara’s “Scars to Your Beautiful” for judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan. But it was also a long road for her to get there. CF is a progressive illness affecting the lungs which causes infections, inflammation, and respiratory failure. People who have CF have typically lived into their 30s, although recent medical advancements are making a huge difference.

The National Memorial for the Unborn is a breathtaking sight — the memorial wall is lined with row upon row of individualized plaques representing sacred lives lost to abortion. The scene grips the heart… all the tokens of love placed there… the cross standing tall in the foreground, casting a beautiful blanket of comfort over grieving hearts, and boldly declaring the forgiveness and healing found in Christ Jesus.

While passing through Chattanooga from a recent vacation, my husband and I made a point to stop at the National Memorial, to revisit the site where my child’s plaque is displayed.

South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem Will Sign Bill Banning Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem Will Sign Bill Banning Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has announced that she will sign a bill this week that will ban abortions on babies just because they have Down syndrome.

Earlier this month, the South Dakota legislature unanimously passed a pro-life bill to ban discriminatory abortions on unborn babies with Down syndrome. The unanimous 35-0 vote in the state Senate took place less than two weeks after the state House also unanimously passed the pro-life bill. The House vote was 68-0.

Introduced by Gov. Kristi Noem, state House Bill 1110 would prohibit abortionists from knowingly aborting an unborn baby because the baby has or may have Down syndrome.

Woman With Down Syndrome Condemns Abortion: “I’m Not a Devastating Diagnosis or a Crisis Pregnancy”

Woman With Down Syndrome Condemns Abortion: “I’m Not a Devastating Diagnosis or a Crisis Pregnancy”

Heidi Crowter knows her life is valuable.

But she does not understand why so many other people in the world don’t.

The 25-year-old British woman is a disability rights advocate who is working to stop discrimination against people who, like her, have Down syndrome.

News Letter reports she recently spoke out against the British government’s push to force Northern Ireland to expand abortions, including on unborn babies with Down syndrome.

The law being imposed on Northern Ireland by England allows unborn babies with “severe fetal impairments,” such as Down syndrome, to be aborted up to birth.

“The reason I feel so strongly about abortion is because I am someone who has Down’s syndrome,” Crowter said.

While they met at school when he was 16 and she was 14, wounds from their pasts would eventually strain their relationship and future marriage and family life.

Louisiana Abortions Decline 9% as Almost 700 Babies Saved From Abortion

Louisiana Abortions Decline 9% as Almost 700 Babies Saved From Abortion

The number of abortions in Louisiana dropped 9% from 2019 to 2020, according to preliminary figures provided to Louisiana Right to Life recently by the Louisiana Department of Health. This puts the abortion rate in Louisiana at a 12-year low.

There were 7,448 abortions performed in Louisiana in 2020. In 2019, 8,144 unborn babies were killed by abortion.

Abortion numbers are 27 percent lower than they were in 2014, when 10,211 abortions were done in Louisiana. The number of abortions performed in the state had increased steadily from 2008-2014 before the decline began.

Benjamin Clapper, Executive Director of Louisiana Right to Life, said the following on the publishing of the statistics: “Today we celebrate that in fewer babies were lost from abortion in 2020 than were lost in 2019.

Premature Baby Girl Born Just Weeks After Abortion Limit is Doing Great

Premature Baby Girl Born Just Weeks After Abortion Limit is Doing Great

Parents of a premature baby have praised a new app that has allowed them to stay connected to their newborn daughter, Barbara, despite the lockdown.

Barbara was born at 27 weeks’ gestation – just three weeks after the abortion limit – in Kent in September last year and was transferred twice to Evelina London Children’s Hospital for her care.

Due to the COVID lockdowns, parents Jenny Clarke and John Britton have had to make use of a video messaging app called vCreate in order to receive updates on their daughter’s progress.

“As we don’t live close to the hospital, we rely on public transport to visit Barbara, which has been especially difficult over the past few months”, Jenny said.

New Report Shows Teen Abortion Rate Has Dropped a Whopping 82%

New Report Shows Teen Abortion Rate Has Dropped a Whopping 82%

Last week, the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute released long-term data on rates of pregnancies, births, and abortions in the U.S. The national data range from 1973 to 2017 and include breakdowns by age demographics, and the state-level data range from 1988 to 2017.

These statistics are especially helpful because, while the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provide some information about the age demographics of women obtaining abortions, their data are incomplete. For instance, the CDC’s 2018 Abortion Surveillance Report did not include data from California, Maryland, New Hampshire, and Wyoming.

As a result, this new Guttmacher report provides interesting information for understanding U.S.

“Disastrous” Day for Vulnerable People in Spain as Euthanasia is Legalized

“Disastrous” Day for Vulnerable People in Spain as Euthanasia is Legalized

Spain has passed a law which will allow vulnerable people to be killed by euthanasia. The day has been described as “disastrous” and “devastating.”

The Spanish lower parliament voted to approve the euthanasia law which will allow vulnerable people suffering from “serious and uncurable” disease to be killed.

It is expected that the euthanasia law will come into effect in June 2021.

Pro-life groups have said that they will challenge the euthanasia law in Spain’s constitutional court.

Up until now, attempts to legalise assisted suicide and euthanasia in Spain have faced resistance and widespread opposition from Spanish politicians and the public.

Doctor drives hours in snowstorm to save high-risk newborn baby’s life

by Administrator

The actions of one heroic doctor helped save a high-risk baby’s life recently in Virginia. Carrie Rush was thrilled to discover she was pregnant after some initial difficulty, but her joy turned to concern when she discovered her preborn baby had a dangerous jaw abnormality. And her delivery only became more dangerous when she went into labor hours away from the hospital, in the middle of a snowstorm.

Dr. Stephen Early of the University of Virginia Health system was ready for Rush. “That type of abnormality creates difficulty with breathing at birth and may be a fatal abnormality,” Early told CBS19 News.

Iowa Fights in Court to Defund Planned Parenthood Abortion Business

Iowa Fights in Court to Defund Planned Parenthood Abortion Business

The Iowa Supreme Court considered arguments Tuesday about a state law that defunds Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups of sex education grants.

In 2019, Iowa lawmakers voted to disqualify abortion providers from its sex education program in response to a strong outcry from state residents. But Planned Parenthood of the Heartland sued, claiming the state unfairly singled it out, and a state judge blocked the law.

This week, the state appealed that ruling in front of the Iowa Supreme Court, telling the justices that Iowans do not want their tax dollars to subsidize abortions, the Iowa Capital Dispatch reports.

Christians cannot claim to live for God while justifying abortion

Christians cannot claim to live for God while justifying abortion

by Administrator

Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this guest post are solely those of the author and are not necessarily reflective of Live Action or Live Action News.

Recently I read an article by ABC News that attempted to portray how the Black Christian community views abortion. It saddened me to read how misguided even some Christian “leaders” are when it comes to abortion. If we’re being honest, we must admit that our own personal journeys often create understanding (or a lack of understanding) when we read the Bible. At times, even Christians can misconstrue the words in the Bible. We are human, after all.

NEW YORK (CNS) — Viewers will get an early Easter treat when “Resurrection” (MGM), the latest project from executive producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, becomes available on the streaming service Discovery+ March 27.

Though its tone is sometimes overheated, this is a handsomely done dramatization of the most essential period in human history.

The narrative covers the death, rising and ascension of Jesus (Juan Pablo Di Pace) as well as the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Writer Simon Block and director Ciaran Donnelly examine the impact of these events both on the followers of Jesus and on his opponents.

Judge Hides 200 Hours of Video Footage Exposing Planned Parenthood Selling Aborted Baby Parts

Judge Hides 200 Hours of Video Footage Exposing Planned Parenthood Selling Aborted Baby Parts

For six years, the undercover journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade have been battling a judge’s order blocking them from releasing more videos.

Back in 2015, federal Judge William Orrick, who has ties to Planned Parenthood, blocked David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress from releasing an additional 200 hours of video footage, The Federalist reports.

The videos were taken at a National Abortion Federation (NAF) convention. NAF is suing Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress for breach of contract. It also wants a permanent ban on the release of the videos.

In February, Daleiden and his lawyers returned to court to argue that they should be allowed to release the videos to the public, according to the report.

(Newsbusters MRC) It is not often that a television drama promotes a pro-life viewpoint (just last week, ABC’s A Million Little Things featured an abortion at a Planned Parenthood) so when one pops up, it is noteworthy. In the March 22 episode of ABC’s The Good Doctor, titled “Teeny Blue Eyes”, Dr. Shaun Murphy and his girlfriend debate going through with an unplanned pregnancy.

Shaun (Freddie Highmore) and Lea (Paige Spara) are in a new live-in relationship. Lea is unexpectedly pregnant. Both Shaun and Lea want to have children but the question is whether or not this is the right time to do so.

Autopsy Report Reveals Botched Legal Abortion Killed Woman, Perforated Her Uterus

Autopsy Report Reveals Botched Legal Abortion Killed Woman, Perforated Her Uterus

A woman who died after leaving the West Alabama Women’s Center (WAWC) abortion facility in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on May 7, 2020, has been identified through her autopsy report as 29-year-old April Lowery.

The report was obtained by the CEC for Life on behalf of a coalition of national and local pro-life groups that also includes Operation Rescue, Life Legal Defense Foundation, and Pro-Life Tuscaloosa.

Lowery was seen on May 7, 2020, leaving the WAWC by pro-life activists, who described her as “sick and pale.”  She had to be physically supported as she struggled to walk from the clinic to an awaiting private vehicle, which then reportedly transported her to what is believed to have been UAB Hospital in Birmingham, where she was later pronounced dead.
