G7 Summit Group Wants to Expand Killing Babies in Abortions Worldwide

G7 Summit Group Wants to Expand Killing Babies in Abortions Worldwide

The Group of Seven (G7) Summit is taking place in the UK from June 11-13 under the presidency of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson with an aim to “build back better from coronavirus, uniting to make the future fairer, greener and more prosperous.”  Last year’s G7 Summit under the presidency of President Donald Trump was postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic.

One of six official G7 engagement groups is Women 7 (W7) which is described as bringing together “women’s rights advocacy groups from the G7 countries and around the world committed to women and girls’ rights.”  Its objective is “to ensure that G7 leaders adopt concrete commitments that lead to a tangible, lasting and transformative impact on women and girls’ lives in 2021 and beyond”.

Suicide Attempts Among Teenagers Skyrocketed During Democrat Lockdowns

Suicide Attempts Among Teenagers Skyrocketed During Democrat Lockdowns

Suicide-related emergency room visits among both adolescent girls and boys spiked amid the pandemic and continued to surge as lockdowns persisted, according to a government health report.

Emergency room (ER) mental health visits increased 31% among children aged 12-17 years old in 2020 compared to the previous year, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report released Friday. The CDC noted that, while it couldn’t definitively establish a cause, it’s likely that pandemic-related restrictions on everyday life could be to blame for the increase.

“Young persons might represent a group at high risk because they might have been particularly affected by mitigation measures, such as physical distancing (including a lack of connectedness to schools, teachers, and peers); barriers to mental health treatment; increases in substance use; and anxiety about family health and economic problems,” the report stated.

Mom Rejected Doctors’ Advice to Abort Her Son With Down Syndrome, Now He’s “Thriving”

Mom Rejected Doctors’ Advice to Abort Her Son With Down Syndrome, Now He’s “Thriving”

Koh Sui Tin, a mother from Singapore, has recently spoken out about her experience of having a son with Down’s syndrome, and the influence doctors have in whether a woman has an abortion after a doctor informs her that there is a high probability of the child being born with the condition.

In an open letter to The Straits Times, Tin recounted how she was told during the first trimester of her pregnancy that there was a “very high chance of my baby having a chromosomal abnormality”.

She said her doctor advised that she should have an abortion because of “all the challenges that my child would potentially have…”.

New Poll: 74% of Faithful Catholics Say Pro-Abortion Politicians Shouldn’t Request Communion

New Poll: 74% of Faithful Catholics Say Pro-Abortion Politicians Shouldn’t Request Communion

A new poll of faithful Catholics finds 74% of regular churchgoers say pro-abortion Catholic politicians like Joe Biden should not present themselves for communion.

The poll, conducted by the CRC Research polling firm for the pro-life group CatholicVote, found 74% of Catholics who attend mass regularly did not think pro-abortion politicians should show up for communion and another 83% of Catholics who regularly attend Mass say these pro-abortion politicians “create confusion and disunity” because they do not follow the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church.

According to the survey, 87% of Catholics agree that the Church has a longstanding pro-life position and has “has long taught that certain issues are of grave moral importance, such as abortion.”

Republicans Kill Pelosi Bill to Promote Killing More Babies in Abortions

Republicans Kill Pelosi Bill to Promote Killing More Babies in Abortions

In a House of Representatives controlled by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats, it’s difficult for Republicans to secure any legislative victories. But they achieved one Tuesday night when they were able to use parliamentary tactics to block a bill that would have promoted killing more babies in abortions at taxpayer expense.

House conservatives came up with a way to derail a bill Pelosi and her pro-abortion cohorts attempted to fast-track through the House to the Senate. The measure, called the Equal Access to Contraception for Veterans Act, would have facilitated government-funded access to abortion drugs through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Steve Scalise: “We’re Going to Fight With Everything We Have” to Stop Democrats’ Abortion Funding

Steve Scalise: “We’re Going to Fight With Everything We Have” to Stop Democrats’ Abortion Funding

As NRL News Today readers know so well, there is seemingly nothing the Democrat-controlled Congress and the Biden-Harris administration won’t do for their compatriots in arms, the Abortion Industry.

That  includes even going after the Hyde Amendment which has saved over two million lives and that has been a mainstay for decades, even when Democrats wielded all the arms of power. It meant and means, with very limited exceptions, no federal dollars  to pay for abortion.

Last week, in describing “the Administration’s radical left turn,” Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) said

It touches much more than just infrastructure policy. In fact, it includes an unprecedented new threat to the basic dignity of human life.

Abortion Activists Admit Most Late Abortions Aren’t for Medical Reasons

Abortion Activists Admit Most Late Abortions Aren’t for Medical Reasons

Mother Jones, a left-leaning outlet hostile to the lives of children in the womb, recently published an article about abortions after 15 weeks, sometimes called “late-term” abortions. A Mississippi law protecting children 15 weeks and older from abortion will come before the Supreme Court in the fall.

Author Becca Andrews criticizes her fellow abortion advocates’ approach:

You’re familiar with the milieu, which goes something like this: Abortions after 15 weeks are rare, and these are heartbreaking cases where the pregnancy was wanted and something went horribly wrong.

But the reality is, these are simply medical procedures given to those who need them.

Democrats Want to Make Killing Babies Up to Birth a National Law, And They Want You to Fund It

Democrats Want to Make Killing Babies Up to Birth a National Law, And They Want You to Fund It

Democrats seem to have found a use for Congress again. After years of relying on the courts to do their dirty work, the far-Left has had to find other solutions after Donald Trump spent the last four years balancing U.S. benches. Now, suddenly, more liberals have seemed to awaken to the fact that there’s a legislative branch too, and they’re spilling all of their ink urging fellow abortion activists to use it. “The Supreme Court may toss Roe,” the Washington Post tries to comfort its Leftist readers. “But Congress can still preserve abortion…”

It’s an ironic twist from the last several decades when the Democratic Party turned to activist judges to change the governing policies of the nation they couldn’t rewrite democratically.

Feminists Lose in Illinois as Pro-Abortion Bill for Secret Teen Abortions Dies

Feminists Lose in Illinois as Pro-Abortion Bill for Secret Teen Abortions Dies

Illinois teens and their unborn babies will remain protected under a state law that requires underage girls to notify a parent before having an abortion.

Earlier this year, state lawmakers introduced bills in the Illinois House and Senate to repeal the 1995 state parental notification law.

This week, however, the state legislative session ended, and lawmakers did not act on either bill, the Belleville News-Democrat reports. The pro-abortion legislation never advanced out of committee.

There is a chance the bills could be resurrected. The report did note that lawmakers could consider action during a special session later this summer on emergency legislation.

Democrats are Working With Abortion Activists to Try to Silence Pro-Life Americans

Democrats are Working With Abortion Activists to Try to Silence Pro-Life Americans

Democrat prosecutors have been working with abortion activists in New York and California to silence pro-life advocates who work to save unborn babies from abortion.

The Federalist recently highlighted two examples, one being an on-going New York case against pro-life sidewalk counselors that began in 2017. The other, more widely-known to the pro-life movement, is California prosecutors’ attempts to silence David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress after they exposed Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade.

“The two cases, although separated by flyover America, unite in their lesson: The truth about abortion must be silenced, and powerful people will try to ensure it is,” Federalist writer Margot Cleveland wrote.

Missoula, Montana Backs Down After Trying to Stop Pro-Life Woman From Praying at Abortion Clinic

Missoula, Montana Backs Down After Trying to Stop Pro-Life Woman From Praying at Abortion Clinic

A peaceful Missoula, Montana, pro-life advocate has been vindicated following erroneous and unconstitutional charges made by a city law enforcement officer. The charges against Marilyn Hatch were dismissed after Thomas More Society attorneys sent a demand letter to the Senior Deputy City Attorney of Missoula pointing out that the ordinance the charges were based upon is unconstitutional.

“All people have the right to peacefully give their opinions about the dignity of unborn human life outside abortion facilities. The City of Missoula’s  decision to criminally charge Mrs. Hatch for engaging in speech protected by the First Amendment was itself unconstitutional,” declared Thomas More Society Senior Counsel Matt Heffron.

World Medical Association Wants to Force Doctors to Make Referrals for Abortions or Euthanasia

World Medical Association Wants to Force Doctors to Make Referrals for Abortions or Euthanasia

The World Medical Association is revising the International Code of Medical Ethics (ICoME) to limit the scope of conscientious objection.

According to a WMA press release, “Workgroup members and observers representing more than 15 countries have reviewed the document carefully to determine what might be missing from the ICoME, what might be superfluous, what could potentially be organised differently.”

The principal change would be to make referral a duty for a doctor who has a conscientious objection. The current code says:

Physicians have an ethical obligation to minimise disruption to patient care. Conscientious objection must only be considered if the individual patient is not discriminated against or disadvantaged, the patient’s health is not endangered, and undelayed continuity of care is ensured.

Abortions Increase 24% in Iowa as More Babies are Killed With the Abortion Pill

Abortions Increase 24% in Iowa as More Babies are Killed With the Abortion Pill

Abortions rose dramatically in Iowa in 2019 as abortion facilities pushed dangerous abortion drugs on women and their unborn babies.

The Gazette reports a new state health report shows a 24-percent increase in abortions in 2019, a change from the steady decline in abortions over the past decade.

In total, 3,542 abortions killed unborn babies in Iowa that year, according to the data. The increase came despite a decline in the number of abortion facilities in the state, down 33 percent from 2014 to 2017, according to the Gazette.

One clue about the rise in abortions may be the increase in drug-induced abortions.

If Black Lives Matter, Liberals Should Stand Against Killing Black Babies in Abortions

If Black Lives Matter, Liberals Should Stand Against Killing Black Babies in Abortions

Sometimes, no matter how wedded to “choice” someone may be, reality peeks its way through the clouds of slogans, disinformation, and illogic.

Enter Getty Israel, a Black woman, whose op-ed for the [Jackson, Mississippi] Clarion Ledger is headlined, “Abortion Rate disparities: I’m pro-choice but I can’t ignore statistics.”

Israel, founder and executive director of Sisters in Birth Inc., located  in Jackson, straightforwardly establishes her thesis in her initial sentence:

Pro-choice people like me often decry the rates of premature births and infant mortality among Black babies while remaining silent about the abortion rate disparities among Black women.

Later while affirming her “pro-choice” credentials

Black women should maintain their constitutional right to decide when to carry a pregnancy to term.

Mom Refused Abortion When Doctors Said Her Son Had a Heart Defect, Later It Disappeared

Mom Refused Abortion When Doctors Said Her Son Had a Heart Defect, Later It Disappeared

Amber Casey, a mother of two, refused to abort her child because of a heart defect identified by doctors. Now her son is healthy and happy after the defect disappeared.

Amber has no regrets about her decision to let her baby live.

In 2019, Amber had a prenatal scan 20 weeks into her pregnancy, revealing that her son, Orton, had congenital heart disease (CHD), which affects one in 100 babies.

Amber was told that the left side of Orton’s heart was smaller than the right side, meaning that he might not live past the age of five. Multiple surgeries would almost certainly be required.

Hillary Clinton Applauds Teen Who Used Graduation Speech to Promote Killing Babies in Abortions

Hillary Clinton Applauds Teen Who Used Graduation Speech to Promote Killing Babies in Abortions

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton praised a teenager Wednesday for secretly switching her valedictorian speech in order to criticize a new Texas law banning abortions after an unborn baby has a heartbeat.

The former First Lady tweeted her support for Lake Highlands High School valedictorian Paxton Smith, who pulled an unapproved valedictorian speech from her bra at the lectern on graduation day and delivered a speech about Texas’s Heartbeat Act.

“This took guts,” Clinton tweeted. “Thank you for not staying silent, Paxton.”

The new Texas law bans abortions after the unborn baby has a heartbeat. By the end of the fourth week of pregnancy, according to the Cleveland Clinic, the unborn baby’s tiny heart tube will beat about 65 times a minute, and a heartbeat can be detected by about six weeks.

Scientists are Making “Frankenstein” Babies Who are Part Human, Part Monkey

Scientists are Making “Frankenstein” Babies Who are Part Human, Part Monkey

Federal lawmakers are trying to ban the creation of human-animal hybrids, or chimeras, after scientists in California and China were discovered injecting human stem cells into monkey embryos for experiments.

The Washington Times reports U.S. Sen. Mike Braun, R-Indiana, a lead advocate of the legislation, said these potential “Frankenstein” experiments raise serious ethical questions and undermine the sanctity of human life.

“I mean, any of us could speculate on kind of the Frankenstein concept, let’s put it that way, which that was being referred to as in terms of what this leads to,” Braun said. “I do believe that there’s a genuine interest in taking so much that we’ve learned through DNA analysis, understanding the genome of not only human beings but other animals, that there’s going to be that [temptation] contagion to go beyond maybe just the altruistic effort of finding cures for very, very vexing ailments like ALS, like Alzheimer’s …”

In April, an international team of scientists published an article in the journal “Cell” describing how they created embryos with human and monkey cells.

Bishop: No Communion for Pro-Abortion Politicians Who “Reject Fundamental Teachings of the Church”

Bishop: No Communion for Pro-Abortion Politicians Who “Reject Fundamental Teachings of the Church”

Two Catholic bishops urged the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops this week not to delay plans to create a new document to give guidance about Communion and Catholic politicians who openly advocate for the killing of unborn babies.

The Catholic News Agency reports Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco and Archbishop Samuel Aquila of Denver lamented that some bishops want to postpone action on the document.

“I’m deeply grieved by the rising public acrimony among bishops and the adoption of behind-closed-doors maneuvers to interfere with the accepted, normal, agreed-upon procedures of the USCCB,” Cordileone told CNA in a statement Tuesday.

He said the bishops should have an open debate about the matter, and he criticized attempts to “derail the process.”

Alabama Gov Kay Ivey Signs Bill to Stop Infanticide, Protect Babies Born Alive After Botched Abortions

Alabama Gov Kay Ivey Signs Bill to Stop Infanticide, Protect Babies Born Alive After Botched Abortions

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has signed a pro-life bill to stop infanticide that would require appropriate medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions. The new legislation was inspired by a woman named Gianna Jessen who survived an abortion attempt on her life.

Gianna’s Law (House Bill 237) passed by a strong majority in a 76-12 vote earlier this month and the Senate followed suit with its own approval.

Today, Governor Ivey signed it into law.

The bill says that if an infant is born alive after an attempted abortion, the doctor “shall exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious physician would render to any other child born alive at any other location in this state at the same gestational age.”

Texas Legislature Passes Bill to Ban Abortions, Legally Protecting Every Unborn Baby

Texas Legislature Passes Bill to Ban Abortions, Legally Protecting Every Unborn Baby

Pro-lifers celebrated the passage of another pro-life bill in Texas on Tuesday, one that would completely ban abortions as soon as the U.S. Supreme Court allows states to do so.

The Texas Senate passed the Human Life Protection Act (House Bill 1280) in a 19-12 vote; now it heads to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk.

“We are extremely pleased at the passage of HB 1280,” said Dr. Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life. “To whatever extent the Supreme Court allows states to protect unborn babies from abortion — whether at 15 weeks, six weeks, or at conception — the Human Life Protection Act will go into effect to the same extent.”

Baby Born at 24 Weeks With Feet the Size of a Penny Defies the Odds, Now Shes Walking

Baby Born at 24 Weeks With Feet the Size of a Penny Defies the Odds, Now Shes Walking

Doctors told Francesca Bradley-Curran’s parents that she never would walk or talk.

Born prematurely after just 24 weeks of pregnancy, the tiny British girl had feet the size of a penny and a slim chance of survival, The Epoch Times reports.

But she did survive, and, five years later, she is both walking and talking, her parents said.

“It’s crazy to think that the doctors told us even if she did survive she would never walk or talk, but now we can’t get her to sit still or be quiet,” her mother, Victoria Bradley, said.

When Francesca was born, she weighed only 1 pound, 6 ounces, according to the report.

Aborting People With Down Syndrome Deprives Our Society of Love And Joy

Aborting People With Down Syndrome Deprives Our Society of Love And Joy

On November 8, 2020, Chris Nikic became the first man with Down syndrome to complete an Ironman Triathlon. An Ironman consists of a 2.4-mile open-water swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run — a full marathon. It’s an endurance test that less than 0.003 percent of able-bodied Americans can complete.

When asked why Chris became interested in the triathlon, his parents responded, “Ever since Chris was born, the doctors have told us that he’d never walk, that he’d never make friends, that he’d be confined to bed all day, and that his life would be miserable. Chris showed them that those were lies.”

Pro-Life Mom’s Tweet Goes Viral on Twitter: “Let’s Share Stories of Kindness, I’ll Start.”

Pro-Life Mom’s Tweet Goes Viral on Twitter: “Let’s Share Stories of Kindness, I’ll Start.”

As a social media platform, Twitter is regularly wielded as a political battleground and debate forum. But it also presents an opportunity to inspire kindness and encourage heroic actions – actions that reveal the goodness of humanity.

Joanne Mason – a self-identified Christian wife, mother, and daughter – recently took that opportunity when she asked others on Twitter to share their personal “stories of kindness.” She started with her own: She remembered when she once “burst into tears” in public after her brother died. Her tears moved an “elderly gentleman” to reach out, hold her hand, and sit with her. Hundreds of tweeters responded to Joanne’s story, many of whom shared heartwarming stories of their own.

She Took the Abortion Pill and Regretted It, Amazingly a Doctor Was Able to Save Her Baby

Abortion backers made good on their threat to sue the state of Indiana over a law ensuring informed consent on abortion pill reversal (APR) for women seeking chemical abortion, but one mom who successfully reversed her chemical abortion is grateful for her child and told Indiana lawmakers so.

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) signed HB 1577/HEA 1577 into law Apr. 29 after the bill made its way through the state’s legislature earlier this spring. The law requires doctors that provide abortion to notify women pursuing chemical abortion that it may be possible to reverse the abortion drug’s effects should they change their mind before taking the second set of drugs.

Texas Senate Committee Passes Bill to Protect Patients From Euthanasia

The Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services passed the Respecting Texas Patients’ Right to Life Act (SB 917 by Senator Bryan Hughes) by a vote of 5-4. Chairwoman Lois Kolkhorst (R-Brenham), Senator Charles Perry (R-Lubbock), and Senator Bob Hall (R-Edgewood) have worked alongside Senator Hughes (R-Mineola) on the needed reforms throughout this 87th Session of the Texas Legislature and in sessions past. Senator Dawn Buckingham, M.D., (R-Lakeway) and Senator César Blanco (D-El Paso) joined Hall, Perry, and Kolkhorst in voting SB 917 out of committee.

Under current law, the Texas Advance Directives Act, hospital committees can impose a 10-day countdown on the lives of vulnerable Texas patients.
