Archbishop Prays Outside Planned Parenthood For an End to Abortion

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone led prayers for unborn babies outside a Planned Parenthood abortion facility April 10 in San Mateo, California.

Catholic San Francisco reports the Catholic leader joined hundreds of pro-lifers for a special Mass for Life outside the nation’s largest abortion chain.

“During these days after Easter we celebrate the new life God has given us through the resurrection of Christ, His son,” Cordileone said. “We come together to pray for and to witness to the sanctity of life, human life that speaks to us of the eternal life God has won for us through the sacrifice of His Son.”

Arizona Legislature Passes Bill Banning Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

Arizona Legislature Passes Bill Banning Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

The Arizona state legislature today passed a pro-life bill that would ban discriminatory abortions on unborn babies with genetic abnormalities such as Down syndrome. Now the bill will head to Arizona’s pro-life governor, Doug Ducey, who is expected to sign it into law.

S.B. 1457 now heads to Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s (R) desk and the legislation prohibits discriminatory abortions due to a prenatal diagnosis such as Down syndrome. It also ensures that abortion drugs cannot be shipped through the mail, prevents taxpayer dollars from being used for research that involves fetal remains from an abortion, and requires dignified and respectful treatment of the remains of aborted children.

Oklahoma Legislature Passes Law to Prohibit Nurses From Killing Babies in Abortions

Oklahoma Legislature Passes Law to Prohibit Nurses From Killing Babies in Abortions

Oklahoma pro-life lawmakers took action to protect mothers this week by requiring that abortions be performed by board-certified obstetricians and gynecologists.

The legislation comes at a critical time when abortion activists are trying to expand abortions by taking doctors out of the process. In some states, nurse practitioners and midwives are allowed to abort unborn babies. And, earlier this month, the Biden administration blocked FDA safety regulations on abortion drugs, allowing them to be sent through the mail without the mother ever seeing a doctor in person.

Pushing back against this dangerous trend, the Oklahoma Senate passed state House Bill 1904 on Tuesday and sent it to Gov.

Stanford University Scientists Caught Using Aborted Babies’ Fingers in Tax-Funded Experiments

Stanford University Scientists Caught Using Aborted Babies’ Fingers in Tax-Funded Experiments

A federal complaint filed against Stanford University on Tuesday includes disturbing details about how scientists are using aborted babies’ fingers in taxpayer-funded experiments.

The complaint came from an animal rights group called the White Coat Waste Project, which aims to end taxpayer-funded experiments on animals, Fox News reports. It accused the university of failing to disclose the funding that it received from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the research.

“When NIH-funded white coats implant fingers and femurs from aborted human fetuses into young mice and keep their spending a secret, we call that a gross, gross misuse of taxpayer dollars,” the nonprofit said on its website.

Catholic Bishop Blasts Joe Biden It’s “Terrible” That He’s Making Americans Fund Abortions

Catholic Bishop Blasts Joe Biden It’s “Terrible” That He’s Making Americans Fund Abortions

Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas, is chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities and a dear friend of the Pro-Life Movement who has spoken at National Right to Life’s conventions.

So it came as no surprise that Archbishop Naumann criticized in no uncertain terms the decision by the Biden-Harris administration to reverse “The Protect Life Rule,” a regulation issued by the Trump Administration in February 2019. As NRL News Today readers recall, that rule reinstated the program’s original intent — to clearly separate abortion from family planning in the federal Title X family planning program.

Top Pro-Abortion Feminist Dies During Botched Abortion Procedure

A young activist who lobbied Argentina to legalize abortion is believed to be the first woman to die from a supposedly “safe, legal” abortion in the country.

ACI Prensa reports the woman, María del Valle González López, 23, died along with her unborn baby April 11 after taking abortion drugs that she was prescribed at the Arturo Illia hospital in La Paz.

Later, news outlets confirmed that González López was the president of Radical Youth of La Paz (Juventud Radical de La Paz) in Mendoza, one of the groups that lobbied the country to legalize abortion last year, Remix News reports.

Joe Biden Will Make Americans Fund Research Using Body Parts From Aborted Babies

Joe Biden Will Make Americans Fund Research Using Body Parts From Aborted Babies

In a new announcement form his administration today, Joe Biden will make Americans fund research using body parts from aborted babies with their taxpayer dollars.

The Biden administration announced it is overturning a pro-life rule President Donald trump put in place barring taxpayer funding for federally-funded studies involving the use of fetal tissue taken from babies killed in abortions.

During his administration President Trump put in place a new bioethics advisory board recommending that the government reject funding for 13 of 14 research projects that plan to use aborted baby body parts. Trump appointed a number of leading pro-life researchers and bioethicists to the board.

Pro-Life Reporter Criticizes Jen Psaki for Promoting Abortions on Black Babies

Pro-Life Reporter Criticizes Jen Psaki for Promoting Abortions on Black Babies

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki ignored a question Wednesday about how abortions disproportionately harm black babies and mothers while discussing a plan that would restore millions of tax dollars to the abortion industry.

The question came from EWTN White House correspondent Owen Jensen regarding the Title X family planning program, the Catholic News Agency reports.

On Wednesday, the Biden administration issued a new rule that will force taxpayers to fund the abortion industry through Title X. The rule will end a pro-life regulation that President Donald Trump put in place to ensure Title X funds are not used to subsidize the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

2nd Nebraska City Bans Abortions, Becomes “Sanctuary for the Unborn”

A second Nebraska city voted this week to ban abortions by becoming a Sanctuary for the Unborn.

The unanimous vote by the Blue Hill City Council on Tuesday made it the 25th city in the United States to pass an ordinance that protects unborn babies from abortions, Live Action News reports.

Mark Lee Dickson, director with Right to Life of East Texas and leader of the Sanctuary for the Unborn initiative, said city leaders took action swiftly after a community member learned about the Village of Hayes Center, Nebraska passing a Sanctuary for the Unborn ordinance earlier this month.

Pro-Life Congresswoman: We Must Stand Up for the Right to Life of Unborn Babies

Pro-Life Congresswoman: We Must Stand Up for the Right to Life of Unborn Babies

Congresswoman Ann Wagner encouraged Americans this week to raise their voices for the rights of unborn babies as pro-abortion Democrats in Washington work aggressively to destroy them.

In a column at Breitbart, the Missouri congresswoman said the need is urgent because the right to life for born and unborn babies is at stake.

“There is a battle for life in this country, and there is an urgent need for people to fight for our most vulnerable,” she wrote.

Earlier this year, she re-introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in the U.S. House. The legislation would protect newborn babies who survive abortions from infanticide by requiring that they be provided with the same medical care as any other baby born at the same gestational age.

Joe Biden Just Allowed Mailing Women Abortion Pills to Kill More Babies in Abortions

Joe Biden Just Allowed Mailing Women Abortion Pills to Kill More Babies in Abortions

In a development which surprised absolutely no one, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) yesterday “suspended” regulations on the dispensing of the abortion pill mifepristone for the duration of the pandemic. This means that abortionists can meet with women by video conference and have pills shipped to the women’s homes without ever having to visit the clinic.

The abortion industry has been calling for at-home abortions for years and has used the pandemic as an excuse to demand that the government allow “contactless” abortion pill distribution.

Several state attorneys general, led by then-California AG (and now HHS Secretary) Xavier Becerra , signed a letter in March of 2020 petitioning the FDA to relax its Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) regulations on mifepristone.

Mike Pence Starts New Group to Fight Abortion, Advance President Trump’s Policies

Former Vice President Mike Pence created a new conservative advocacy group Wednesday that will, among other things, advocate for the rights of unborn babies and pro-life Americans.

The AP reports the organization, Advancing American Freedom, aims to promote conservative values and the successful policies of President Donald Trump’s administration.

“Conservatives will not stand idly by as the radical Left and the new administration attempt to threaten America’s standing as the greatest nation in the world with their destructive policies,” Pence said in a statement announcing his new organization.

According to The Christian Post, this includes stopping taxpayer dollars from funding the abortion industry both in the U.S.

Abortion is Never a Human Right

Abortion is Never a Human Right

by Administrator

How is it still possible to speak of the dignity of every human person when the killing of the weakest and most innocent is permitted? In the name of what justice is the most unjust of discriminations practised: some individuals are held to be deserving of defence and others are denied that dignity?

─ Pope St. John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, no. 20

One of the great achievements of Christian civilization has been the development of a thorough and robust account of the dignity of the human person – a dignity that outstrips that of any other being in physical creation, to the extent that the human person is viewed as an image of God Himself.

Many parents know the difficulty of giving birth to a child who needs to receive special care in the neonatal intensive care unit, and what an emotionally trying time it can be. According to E online, singer Meghan Trainor and her husband Daryl Sabara recently experienced this, and shared a video of their son Riley’s time in the NICU.

While the pair have also shared pictures of their now healthy two-month-old son, it seems the journey toward this happy outcome was not an easy one. A TikTok video posted by the singer last week shows the newborn baby hooked up to tubes.

The moment you find out you are an abortion survivor is the moment you begin to navigate your new place in this world. In that moment, you are forced to wrestle with your new identity and the reality that we live in a society that doesn’t want to acknowledge your existence or humanity. 

At least that has been my personal experience as one of the first outspoken abortion survivors in history. When I learned I had survived the abortion procedure that had been intended to dismember my body to death like it did to my twin, I thought I was the only one.

Houston Texas Pregnancy Center is Helping Women, Saving Babies From Abortion

A Houston pregnancy medical clinic was tapped to provide emergency pregnancy help to hundreds of minor migrant girls brought to a local facility, and amidst the desperate situation, the staff took the time to be Christ through compassion and life-affirming support.

Sylvia Johnson, executive director for Houston Pregnancy Help Centers, and her Senior Director of Operations Sandra Ontiveros, are confident the part they and their center played in assisting hundreds of minor girls housed temporarily in Houston due to the ongoing humanitarian crisis at the border was brought about by God.

Houston Pregnancy Help Centers (HPHC) serves women facing unplanned pregnancy as part of a Christian mission and answering the call for help to serve the unaccompanied young women was a mere continuation of that.

Jessica Barnes was 21 years old, in college, and dating a man struggling with drug addiction when she learned she was pregnant. Though she was Christian and had always been pro-life, she felt backed into a corner. Filled with fear, she didn’t believe she could be a mother to her child.

“When you’re pushed into that corner and it’s you… ya know… so I was the one contemplating abortion,” she told Live Action News. “My friend Danielle was my one friend who was like, ‘Jessica, you can’t have an abortion. You’ll never forgive yourself.’”

Growing up in foster care, Barnes’s biological parents had used her as a pawn in their battles against each other.

Document Reveals How Abortion Activists Came Up With the False Term “Pro-Choice”

Document Reveals How Abortion Activists Came Up With the False Term “Pro-Choice”

In a memorandum from the early pro-abortion advocacy group The Association for the Study of Abortion, the term “pro-choice” was proposed and reasons were given for why the pro-abortion movement should adopt it as a slogan.

The organization was trying to come up with a slogan to match “right to life” which pro-lifers had adopted. The memorandum says:

“The alternatives seem to be Freedom of Conscience and Right to Choose. I hope someone can think of a clearly better one but, in the meantime, let me say why I think the latter preferable. There are two reasons – the first superficial, the second, less so.

Pro-Abortion Billboards Claim Killing Babies in Abortions is Just “Between You and God”

Pro-Abortion Billboards Claim Killing Babies in Abortions is Just “Between You and God”

Across Kentucky, pro-abortion billboards are popping up with messages that try to justify the killing of unborn babies in abortions to Christians.

WTVQ reports the billboards are a project of the Kentucky Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and they are located in Louisville, Nicholasville and Paducah.

The messages include “Abortion: a personal decision between you and God,” “Good people have abortions. God knows and loves you,” and “Walk in my shoes before you judge my abortion.”

The Rev. Diane Snowa, a board member of the pro-abortion group, said they want to counteract the Christian belief that abortion is a sin.

“The Kentucky Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice wants Kentuckians to hear a different truth: Abortion is a very personal decision, between you and God,” Snowa said.

A young woman who felt like she had no choice took the abortion pill and had immediate regret. But her local pregnancy help organization was there for her, and between the support she received there and the life-saving abortion pill reversal (APR) protocol, she has her little girl.

Ayah said her daughter is everything to her, and now she wants to show her little girl that “anything in the world is possible.”

“She’s my reason for everything that I do,” Ayah said. “She’s my little girl. And I love her with all of my heart. I can never imagine my life without her.”

Liberal Media: Republicans Who Support Voter ID are Racists Who Want to “Slaughter” Blacks

Liberal Media: Republicans Who Support Voter ID are Racists Who Want to “Slaughter” Blacks

If you think requiring some form of identification to vote is perfectly fine, you are racist!

At least that’s the current spin from liberal journalists, as they’ve labeled recent Republican efforts to require an ID to vote as “Jim Crow 2.0.”

It’s not just Georgia, and it has nothing to do with the “Big Lie.” A quick search of the MRC’s archives shows the Democrat-friendly media have been trashing Republicans as racist vote suppressors for the better part of ten years, disparaging sensible regulations as “downright evil.”

The left-wing media have shown particular hostility to the idea of voters showing identification at the polls to prevent fraud, even though polls show majorities of Americans (including non-whites) are in favor of such a requirement.

Just-released 911 records reveal that a woman bled uncontrollably and may have had a perforated uterus or other injury due to an abortion at the Planned Parenthood facility in Charleston, South Carolina. on March 12, 2021.

The records, obtained by Operation Rescue, show that a 36-year-old woman experienced pain and severe bleeding following an abortion and was transferred by ambulance to University Medical Center in Charleston.

Planned Parenthood staff was unable to stop the bleeding and was incapable of making an accurate diagnosis about the injury that caused the hemorrhaging.

The 911 call was placed by the Planned Parenthood’s health center manager, who identified herself as “Tiffany.”

The abortion facility Lovejoy Surgicenter, the oldest abortion facility in Oregon, closed recently but may open again under new management. A book published in 1994 revealed how Lovejoy was run as a profitable business.

The book says that Allene Klass, then-owner of Lovejoy, drove a “jet black Jaguar.” She made a great deal of money. Author Peter Korn writes, “Allene’s dress defies easy clarification. She clearly has paid great attention to her appearance… Outsized jewelry completes the ensemble – a large diamond ring, a shiny silver bracelet, dangling earrings.”

Korn refers to Klass repeatedly as a businesswoman, writing, “When they write Allene’s epitaph, whoever is doing the writing might paint her as a hero or villain.

Pro-Life Congresswoman Files Petition to Force Nancy Pelosi to Hold Vote on Bill to Stop Infanticide

Pro-life Congresswoman Kat Cammack wants the U.S. House to vote on a critical piece of legislation that would protect newborn babies who survive abortions from infanticide.

On Wednesday, the Florida representative filed a discharge petition that would force House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to the floor for a vote. House Republican Whip Steve Scalise, of Louisiana, and U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Missouri, joined her.
