Judge Blocks Law Letting Women See Ultrasounds Because He Worries Mothers May Choose Life

Judge Blocks Law Letting Women See Ultrasounds Because He Worries Mothers May Choose Life

A Montana judge blocked a pro-life law late last week that makes sure mothers have the opportunity to see their unborn baby on an ultrasound screen before going through with an abortion.

KTVH Helena reports Yellowstone County District Judge Michael Moses issued a preliminary injunction blocking the ultrasound law and two others in response to a lawsuit from Planned Parenthood of Montana.

Moses, an appointee of former pro-abortion Democrat Gov. Steve Bullock, described the case as of “extreme constitutional importance” prior to issuing the order, according to Reuters.

The three pro-life laws, which passed the state legislature this spring, protect unborn babies and mothers from the abortion industry.

St. Louis Mayor: I Like Abortion Because Our City Makes Money

Since Texas passed Senate Bill 8 or the “Heartbeat Bill,” pro-abortion activists have been hosting “Stop the Bans” rallies throughout the country.

Dozens of abortion supporters rallied for abortion at the Old Courthouse downtown. Among these protesters were two prominent city figures—St. Louis City Mayor Tishaura Jones and Representative Cori Bush. Both women spoke at the podium on the steps of the courthouse, advocating for abortion.

Pregnancy Centers File Suit Against Connecticut Law Trying to Shut Them Down for Not Doing Abortions

Pregnancy Centers File Suit Against Connecticut Law Trying to Shut Them Down for Not Doing Abortions

Attorneys with Alliance Defending Freedom filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday to allow a faith-based pregnancy center in New London to continue providing critical services to women without fear of discrimination based on the center’s pro-life views. Care Net Pregnancy Resource Center of Southeastern Connecticut is challenging a state law that targets pro-life pregnancy centers by forcing them to comply with state-approved speech or face punishment.

The law targets pro-life pregnancy centers as “limited services” providers because they do not refer or perform abortions. Under the law, the state attorney general has the authority to decide whether Care Net is engaging in “deceptive advertising” because of its life-affirming message based on its religious beliefs.

Missouri | Pope Francis asks Parson to halt execution of Ernest Johnson

Through a diplomatic representative, Pope Francis beseeched Gov. Mike Parson to halt the upcoming execution of Ernest Johnson. The letter from Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the apostolic nuncio (a Vatican diplomat), said the pope asked Parson to consider Johnson’s “humanity and the sacredness of all human life” rather than the specifics of the case. “Governor Parson, the State of Missouri has

The story of D-had an abortion because she felt alone and helpless…..

by Karl Pieleck
Ok I wrote this so heavily hearted and sent before fixed all the typos AND something we left out of D’s story (and yes she had an abortion and it was too late for APR/abortion pill reversal) and this is important as at one point she said, “But why would you want to be friends with me as the very reason you are standing out here to try and stop women from having abortions is the very thing that I did….”
 
Powerful words….and what an opportunity we had to tell her about the love of Jesus and our love for her too.

DAY 9: The Good News Keeps Coming

It’s not just a clever tagline. Your prayers really do bring about The Beginning of the End of Abortion.

Case in point: over the last few years, 40 Days for Life campaigns in the El Paso, Texas area have helped put 3 different abortion facilities out of business…forever!

And the good news keeps coming. Mark, who oversees multiple campaigns in the region recently announced that El Paso’s Planned Parenthood no longer has an active abortion license.

“This means they are not able to perform any abortion…even chemical abortions under six weeks, which are still currently allowed by the Heartbeat Law.

Dr Miro Griffiths is a Leverhulme Research Fellow in Disability Studies at the University of Leeds, a policy adviser and spokesperson for the Better Way campaign, was published by the Press and Journal in Scotland on September 27, 2021 explaining why assisted dying undermines the equality of people with disabilities.

Dr Griffiths establishes why the issue of euthanasia concerns him.

I have health conditions which are categorised as “life-limiting” and “progressive”. My strength, respiratory function and swallowing will continue to deteriorate.

Physical movement is primarily limited to my fingers. I require a power wheelchair, 24-hour personal assistance from trained professionals, and various medical interventions every day.

New Records Show Obama Admin Purchased Aborted Babies’ Heads for 5 Each

New Records Show Obama Admin Purchased Aborted Babies’ Heads for $515 Each

Judicial Watch announced today that it received 198 pages of records and communications from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) involving “humanized mice” research with human fetal heads, organs and tissue, including communications and contracts with human fetal tissue provider Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR). Most of the records are communications and related attachments between Perrin Larton, a procurement manager for ABR, and research veterinary medical officer Dr. Kristina Howard of the FDA.

University Hides Investigation of Its Research Using Body Parts From Aborted Babies

University Hides Investigation of Its Research Using Body Parts From Aborted Babies

The University of Pittsburgh just hired a law firm to review its scientific research practices after allegations surfaced that aborted babies may be being born alive and their organs harvested for a taxpayer-funded research project at the university.

But pro-life leaders are questioning why the university does not plan to release the investigation results to the public.

The university is facing growing scrutiny after Judicial Watch and the Center for Medical Progress exposed evidence of babies potentially being born alive in abortions and other disturbing practices at the university earlier this summer. The evidence came from documents they obtained from the U.S.

Joe Biden Will Meet With Pope Francis Next Month, Pope Should Rebuke Him for Promoting Abortion

Joe Biden Will Meet With Pope Francis Next Month, Pope Should Rebuke Him for Promoting Abortion

Joe Biden will have his first official meeting with Pope Francis next month. The Pope has  recently called killing babies in aboritons “murder” and, since that is what abortion is, the head of the Catholic Church should rebuke Biden for aggressively promoting abortion despite declaring himself a “devout Catholic.”

Pope Francis is expected to receive Joe Biden on October 29 in Biden’s first official visit to the Vatican since his inauguration.

The sources told CNA on Sept. 25 that their information came directly from the Prefecture for the Pontifical Household. Though encounters with heads of state are diplomatic occasions, the Prefecture is responsible for the organization and protocol around the meetings.

Ohio Bill Would Ban Abortions Immediately After Roe v. Wade is Overturned

Ohio Bill Would Ban Abortions Immediately After Roe v. Wade is Overturned

A new bill in the Ohio Senate would protect unborn babies by banning all abortions as soon as the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.

The Human Life Protection Act (Senate Bill 123), sponsored by state Sens. Kristina Roegner, R-Hudson, and Sandra O’Brien, R-Ashtabula, would ban abortions and impose felony charges on abortionists who violate the law. Exceptions would be allowed if the mother’s life is at risk. The bill would not ban birth control or miscarriage care.

On Wednesday, Roegner told the state Senate Health Committee that Ohio needs to stand for life, according to the Ohio Capital Journal.

A Baby’s Heart Begins Beating Three Weeks After Conception, Abortion Stops a Beating Heart

A Baby’s Heart Begins Beating Three Weeks After Conception, Abortion Stops a Beating Heart

As a journalism student, I was taught never assume. Yet, as a radio reporter, when covering the issue of abortion, I assumed that my listeners knew the basics about abortion.

The huge irony here is that I myself did not have a fundamental knowledge of abortion–in other words, what it did to an unborn child, and what it could do to a mother, in terms of emotional and psychological after-effects.

By that I mean that, for a long time, I did not know that abortion stops a beating heart. I had no clue that, at just 24 days after conception, the baby’s heart is beating.

Democrats Used to Want Abortion “Safe, Legal and Rare.” Now They Want Unlimited Abortions Up to Birth

Democrats Used to Want Abortion “Safe, Legal and Rare.” Now They Want Unlimited Abortions Up to Birth

Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton said Wednesday that Democrats have discarded Bill and Hillary Clinton’s “safe, legal, and rare” stance on abortion because it implies that there is “something wrong about the practice.”

Cotton questioned Democratic Texas State Rep. Donna Howard on her abortion stances Wednesday during a Senate Judiciary Committee, asking Howard whether she agreed with the Clintons that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.”

“I would think that there’s a lot of options that we could put in place that would limit the need for abortion in terms of supporting healthcare for women, access to contraceptives, making sure that they have insurance coverage or Medicaid coverage,” Howard told Cotton.

Radical Feminists Injure 37 People in Violent Pro-Abortion Protests

Radical Feminists Injure 37 People in Violent Pro-Abortion Protests

At least 37 people were injured Tuesday during a violent pro-abortion protest in Mexico City, Mexico, an annual event known for mass vandalism and violence.

Every year on International Safe Abortion Day, abortion activists protest across Central and South America, demanding that their governments legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions. The protests are infamous for vandalism and violence targeting public buildings, churches and police.

CNN reports at least 37 people were injured in the Mexico City protest alone. A video on its website shows abortion activists lighting a structure on fire, vandalizing a wall with spraypaint and appearing to throw smoke bombs and Molotov cocktails.

Pregnant Mom With Cancer Has Her Leg Amputated to Save Her Unborn Child

Pregnant Mom With Cancer Has Her Leg Amputated to Save Her Unborn Child

A brave young British mother with terminal cancer has no regrets about choosing to have her leg amputated rather than aborting her unborn daughter.

Kathleen Osborne, 28, of Wisbech, England, gave birth to a healthy baby girl in March, the Daily Mail reports. However, the mother-of-three was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer near the end of her pregnancy, and she does not know how much longer she has with her children.

“I’m happy I made the decision to lose my leg because it gave me my daughter,” she said. “If I’d not had my leg amputated then, I’d have lost her and I’d have been going through chemotherapy which might not even have saved my leg in the end anyway.”
