Mom Files Lawsuit After Teacher Tells Third Grader She Can’t Wear “Jesus Loves Me” Mask

Mom Files Lawsuit After Teacher Tells Third Grader She Can’t Wear “Jesus Loves Me” Mask

Mississippi mother Jennifer Booth was surprised when her 9-year-old daughter, Lydia, came home from school and told her that she was not allowed to wear her “Jesus Loves Me” face mask anymore.

Thinking her daughter’s teacher might simply have been having a bad day, Booth sent Lydia back to school with her mask. Again, the third grader was told she was not allowed to wear the mask at school.

“The principal calls me and she’s like, ‘We’re going to have to have Lydia swap her mask out,’” Booth recounts, adding that the principal said it was against school policy “to have religious symbols or gestures on her mask.”

Catholic Priest Protests at Abortion Clinic Because That’s Where “Innocent Blood is Shed”

Catholic Priest Protests at Abortion Clinic Because That’s Where “Innocent Blood is Shed”

Abortion activists have yelled in Father Fidelis Moscinski’s face and try to block him from reaching out to women considering abortion. They have interrupted Mass and prayers for the unborn, and targeted him as the leader of a monthly pro-life march in New York City.

But the Franciscan priest recently told EWTN that he will not stop advocating for the unborn because nearly 300 unborn babies are aborted every single day in New York state.

The Catholic News Agency reports Moscinski helped to lead a Witness for Life prayer procession on July 10 when abortion activists with the group New York City for Abortion Rights blocked their walk and harassed the pro-lifers.

America’s Policy of Abortions Up to Birth Puts it in Line With China and North Korea

America’s Policy of Abortions Up to Birth Puts it in Line With China and North Korea

What do most European nations have in common with Mississippi? Commonsense limitations on elective abortion performed in the second and third trimesters.

Surprised? While American elites often look to Europe for social policy guidance, a new study by the Charlotte Lozier Institute shows 47 out of 50 European nations limit elective abortion at or before 15 weeks of gestation. In the United States, 0 out of 50 states have enforceable limits on abortion at 15 weeks.

So, who is following the policy example from Europe – pro-life legislators in Mississippi, or politicians in Washington who support abortion on demand until term?

Abortion is the Leading Cause of Death Worldwide, Killing 24 Million People This Year

Abortion is the Leading Cause of Death Worldwide, Killing 24 Million People This Year

Nothing kills more people than abortion. Nothing.

Half way through 2021, the world-wide abortion numbers already are mind-boggling. Worldometer, which keeps a running tally of various statistics, reported 24.2 million abortions so far this year. The total is based on data from the World Health Organization.

Scientists overwhelmingly confirm that a unique, living human being comes into existence at the moment of conception. And an abortion intentionally kills that human being – a valuable, irreplaceable child.

Yet, little attention is given to preventing or even acknowledging these babies’ deaths. Quite the opposite, saving unborn babies from abortion is considered highly controversial, and pro-life advocates constantly are disparaged for their work.

Pro-Life Groups Tell Congress: Overturn Roe So States Can Protect Babies From Abortion

The National Right to Life Committee (“NRLC”) and Louisiana Right to Life (“LARTL”) have filed a brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse course in a direction that will allow more abortion regulation and lead to reversing Roe v. Wade. They have asked the Court to provide a new roadmap, mandating that normal legal rules must be applied in abortion cases and state interests must be given full effect.

The case is Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, involving Mississippi’s ban (with exceptions) on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The lower courts said that under the Supreme Court decision in Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v.

Former President Exposes Planned Parenthood, Says It’s Obsessed With Killing Babies in Abortions

Former President Exposes Planned Parenthood, Says It’s Obsessed With Killing Babies in Abortions

Planned Parenthood has repeatedly (and incorrectly) argued that abortion makes up “only 3%” of its “services.” But a new book from the former head of the organization suggests that it dictates their direction 100%.

In her memoir published on July 27, Dr. Leana Wen details her time spent as president of the nation’s largest abortion provider: Planned Parenthood. Wen offers readers an insider’s view of the organization’s obsession with abortion in “Lifelines: A Doctor’s Journey in the Fight for Public Health.” Among other things, she says she was told to say “abortion” in “every media interview.” Someone else also warned her that “If we don’t talk about abortion openly, loudly, and proudly, as a positive moral good, then we are further stigmatizing it.”

University Health System Kicks Out Catholic Hospitals, Doctors Because They Won’t Kill Babies in Abortions

University Health System Kicks Out Catholic Hospitals, Doctors Because They Won’t Kill Babies in Abortions

The University of California Board of Regents voted in June to end its affiliations with Catholic medical providers and other pro-life medical groups, despite warnings that the change could cut off healthcare to 35,000 people.

The University of California is taxpayer funded. Its UC Health program runs healthcare facilities and hospitals across the state in partnership with several Catholic medical groups.

According to The College Fix, the board voted in June not to renew agreements with Catholic and other medical providers that refuse to provide elective abortions and other ethically troubling services. It also banned UC Health from entering future agreements with these healthcare providers; the decision will take effect in 2023.

Supreme Court Should Overturn Roe v. Wade, Finally Acknowledge Unborn Babies are People

Supreme Court Should Overturn Roe v. Wade, Finally Acknowledge Unborn Babies are People

Last Thursday, two months after the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear what could be the most significant challenge to Roe v. Wade to date, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch submitted a brief clarifying how this case could impact the abortion debate. “Under the Constitution,” she wrote, “may a State prohibit elective abortions before viability? Yes. Why? Because nothing in constitutional text, structure, history, or tradition supports a right to abortion.”

This case goes back to 2018, when the Mississippi legislature passed the Gestational Age Act, which limited abortion after 15 weeks to only those pregnancies involving health emergencies or fetal abnormalities.

8 Facts You Should Know About the Abortion Pill, Which Kills Babies and Hurts Women

8 Facts You Should Know About the Abortion Pill, Which Kills Babies and Hurts Women

The abortion industry really is getting aggressive about selling abortion drugs to women and girls.

Though abortion numbers have been dropping steadily across the U.S., abortion pills are being used to abort more and more unborn babies. Many expect the number will grow after President Joe Biden’s administration began allowing abortion drugs to be sold through the mail without the woman ever seeing a doctor in person – a huge gift to the abortion industry.

Popular women’s magazines and websites basically have been giving free advertising to the abortion industry, too, touting the abortion pills as “very safe” and effective.

BuzzFeed, for example, recently published a list of “14 things you should know about the abortion pill” based on comments from Melissa Grant, chief operating officer of the abortion chain Carafem.

International Planned Parenthood plans to sue UK government for cuts to abortion funding

International Planned Parenthood plans to sue UK government for cuts to abortion funding

by Administrator

(Right to Life UK) The International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF) has announced plans to launch legal action against the UK Government regarding its decision to cut its foreign aid budget, which includes funding abortions in developing countries.

On 13 July, MPs voted 333 to 298 in favour of cutting overseas aid from 0.7 to 0.5 per cent of national income.

The UK Government’s Women’s Integrated Sexual Health programme (WISH), which works with abortion providers MSI Reproductive Choices (formerly Marie Stopes International) and International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), will receive zero funding in the coming year. IPPF will lose an estimated £72m of UK taxpayer funding as a result of these new cuts.

The New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU), a localized branch of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), is asking New York state to force a new Catholic hospital to agree to commit abortions if it wants to open. The New York State Public Health and Health Planning Council is set to hold a hearing on the new hospital Thursday, July 29.

The Buffalo News reported this week that NYCLU fellow Gabriella Larios “denied Monday that the group opposes a new hospital for Lockport or that its recommendations, if adopted, would infringe on Catholic Health’s religious liberty.” According to the news outlet, Larios said, “What we are trying to do here is ensure is that health care is available to all people – comprehensive health care, reproductive health care, end-of-life care.

Catholic Priest Gives Joe Biden Communion Even Though He’s Radically Pro-Abortion

Catholic Priest Gives Joe Biden Communion Even Though He’s Radically Pro-Abortion

Catholic priests keep giving Communion to President Joe Biden despite his stubborn, unrepentant actions to promote and increase the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

According to a report published at California Catholic Daily, Biden received Communion again on July 24 at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Catholic Church in Wilmington, Delaware, his home parish.

The president professes to be a devout Catholic, but his administration has adopted the most radical pro-abortion policies in U.S. history. Not only did Biden recently allow abortion drugs to be sold through the mail without a doctor’s visit, he also is trying to force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions in Medicaid and in other countries.

An NL Times story reported:

“The suspect sold the drug from November 2018 to June 2021,” the OM alleged in a statement. “The criminal investigation started after the death of a woman from Best in May 2021.”

Democrat Congressman: Right to Kill Babies in Abortions Just as Important as Free Speech, Religion

Democrat Congressman: Right to Kill Babies in Abortions Just as Important as Free Speech, Religion

Rep. Joseph Morelle (D-NY) took to the House floor Wednesday to argue for taxpayer dollars to kill babies. Morelle claimed it was a constitutional right and compared it with free speech and choosing a religion.

“I do note that in my home state of New York, we’ve made the decision for many years to support women in poverty who seek reproductive rights,” Morelle said.

“Rights are granted to us under the Constitution. Those rights are as fundamental as any other right guaranteed to us under the Constitution. But we don’t have economic tests for rights in the United States. So if you have a right, you have a right.”

Congressman Slams Biden on Abortion: “Taxpayers Should Not be Forced to Pay for Child Dismemberment”

Congressman Slams Biden on Abortion: “Taxpayers Should Not be Forced to Pay for Child Dismemberment”

The following are excerpts of House Floor remarks by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), co-chair of the Congressional Pro-life Caucus, on the Mexico City Policy, Helms and UNFPA amendments he offered today during consideration of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2020 (H.R. 4373):

By executive order, President Biden reversed the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy, which was a reiteration and expansion of President Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City policy.

Announced by Ronald Reagan at the UN conference on population growth in Mexico City in 1984—hence its name—the policy was designed to ensure that U.S. taxpayer money was not funneled to foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that perform or promote abortion except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.

Texas mom Mariaha Jones could hardly believe the doctor’s words when they said her son Slade was well enough to leave the hospital.

KXII News 12 reports the Denison, Texas mother gave birth to her son 11 weeks prematurely after she suffered a life-threatening pregnancy condition.

Florida County Passes Measure Funding Pregnancy Centers Saving Babies From Abortion

Commissioners in a Florida county that is considering an abortion ban just approved funding to help local mothers in need.

On Tuesday, as pro-abortion protesters gathered outside the Manatee County Administration Building yelling and holding signs that read “Invest in community, not misogyny” and “Keep abortion legal,” inside the Manatee County Commissioners took action to help pregnant mothers and their babies.

Mark Lee Dickson, director with Right to Life of East Texas and leader of the Sanctuary City for the Unborn initiative, attended the meeting. He said the commissioners voted 5-1 to give $100,000 to help pregnant mothers receive prenatal care through Solve Maternity Homes and Care Net Manasota Pregnancy Center.

“For decades, the Hyde family of policies has protected unborn children and their mothers and kept taxpayers out of the abortion business, with the original Hyde Amendment saving nearly 2.5 million lives,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Joe Biden himself once supported common ground pro-life protections, as the strong majority of Americans do– yet Biden-Pelosi Democrats are scrapping this longstanding bipartisan consensus to pander to the global abortion lobby. Abortion is violence against the most vulnerable, not ‘family planning.’ Americans should never be forced to subsidize abortion on demand through birth at home, to be complicit in human rights abuses overseas, or to export abortion extremism around the globe.

Article: Assisted suicide lobby researchers promote suicide devices for people with dementia (Link).

By Wesley Smith

Bioethicists are looking for ways to eliminate people diagnosed with dementia when they become incapacitated. Belgium and the Netherlands permit advance orders to be euthanized. Another proposal gaining traction in bioethics would force caregivers to starve patients to death.

And here’s a new idea: Writing in the Hastings Center Report — the world’s most prominent bioethics journal — two prominent bioethicists propose the implantation of a time-release suicide device that will cause future death at the time of the patient’s choosing.

Abortion Clinic Injures 20th Woman in Botched Abortion, Tries to Hide Injuries From 911 Dispatcher

For the twentieth time in the past ten years, a woman was transported to a hospital emergency room from the Preterm abortion facility in Cleveland, Ohio.

The most recent abortion-related medical emergency took place on Friday, July 16, 2021, when an ambulance was called to Preterm for a 24-year-old woman who was suffering from “extreme hyperemesis,” a condition where pregnant women vomit to the point of weight loss and/or dehydration, according to 911 records obtained by Operation Rescue.

“The Preterm caller was acting strangely, as if she was reading from a script when she was describing the initial condition of the woman and using terms to disguise the nature of her emergency,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.
