Arizona Senate Passes Bill Banning Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

Arizona Senate Passes Bill Banning Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

The Arizona Senate gave initial approval Wednesday to a pro-life bill that would ban discriminatory abortions on unborn babies with genetic abnormalities such as Down syndrome.

The AP reports Senate Bill 1457, sponsored by state Sen. Nancy Barto, R-Phoenix, passed the first of two votes in the Republican-controlled Senate and likely will advance to the state House soon.

If enacted, the bill would make it a crime to abort an unborn baby because he or she was diagnosed with a genetic disorder. Exceptions would be allowed if the mother’s life is at risk. Arizona already prohibits discriminatory abortions because of an unborn baby’s race or sex.

3-Year-Old Boy Has “Died” Nine Times But Beats Doctors’ Expectations After Mom Rejected Abortion

Samson Farkas narrowly escaped death ten times already in his short life.

The 3-year-old from Far North Queensland, Australia has a rare condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which means he basically only has half a heart, the Daily Mail reports.

His parents said he “clinically died” nine times and had to be revived, suffered a watershed stroke and underwent two open-heart surgeries.

But Samson keeps refusing to give up.

“It blows my mind when I think of all the odds he’s beaten,” his mother, Renee McIntosh, said.

Democrats Block Laws Stopping Infanticide Even Though Babies are Born Alive After Abortions

Democrats Block Laws Stopping Infanticide Even Though Babies are Born Alive After Abortions

Forty-eight Senate Democrats and independents recently filibustered the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a bill that would legally require that babies who survive abortion be treated as any other infant of the same gestational maturity.

Reacting to the federal blockade, some red states are passing their own born-alive laws. South Dakota’s was just signed into law. Kentucky enacted such an anti-infanticide measure. These laws are needed because some such born babies are neglected to death or killed.

But how many babies survive being aborted? Forty-six in four states in just the last few years, it turns out — and this compilation is incomplete since many states don’t keep or report such statistics.

UN Report Pushes Sex on Kids, Criticizes Parents for Blocking Their Sexual Freedom

UN Report Pushes Sex on Kids, Criticizes Parents for Blocking Their Sexual Freedom

(C-Fam) A new UN report on children and privacy might shock parents if they ever knew about it. Produced by a “special rapporteur” and published by the UN Human Rights Council, the report probes the far-frontiers of sex.

The report asserts that “sexual expression” is part of the “interwoven fabric of children’s privacy.” The report defines children as anyone under the age of 18. Presumably, this includes children in swaddling clothes.

The report asserts that “adolescents need to be able to make decisions regarding their well-being and bodies, and to safely and privately explore their sexuality as they mature, whether offline or online.”

Statistics Show More Pregnant Women are Rejecting Abortion

Statistics Show More Pregnant Women are Rejecting Abortion

This past weekend, The Washington Post ran an editorial by Kate Cohen entitled “On TV, Abortion is the Road Less Traveled. Life’s Not Like That.”

Cohen bemoans the fact that fictional television and movie characters rarely resolve unintended pregnancies by obtaining abortions. Specifically, she cites “Knocked Up,” “Waitress,” “Juno,” “Friends,” “Modern Family,” “Girls,” “Glee,” “Gilmore Girls,” and “The Mindy Project” as examples of television shows and movies where characters carry unintended pregnancies to term. Cohen confidently states that carrying a pregnancy to term is “the choice that most women in that situation don’t make.”

While Cohen is correct in that 61 percent of unintended pregnancies end in abortion worldwide, the figure in the United States, where the shows she mentions are most commonly viewed, is quite different.

David Daleiden Appeals Ruling Forcing Him to Pay Planned Parenthood  Million for Exposing Baby Part Sales

David Daleiden Appeals Ruling Forcing Him to Pay Planned Parenthood $16 Million for Exposing Baby Part Sales

The investigative journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s baby body parts trade are fighting back in court, appealing a $16 million verdict in favor of the abortion chain.

On Monday, the Center for Medical Progress announced its lawyers filed an appeal with the Ninth Circuit Court on behalf of David Daleiden and other CMP investigators, seeking to overturn the decision.

“Planned Parenthood got caught selling aborted baby body parts in the undercover videos, and their fetal trafficking programs have started to be held accountable,” Daleiden said. “Yet because of a biased federal judge, who previously helped run a Planned Parenthood clinic in the fetal trafficking network, Planned Parenthood has been allowed to sue me and CMP for successfully reporting the facts …”

Planned Parenthood, a billion-dollar abortion chain, won its lawsuit at a jury trial in 2019.

Pope Benedict Criticizes Joe Biden for Supporting Abortion: “He’s in Continuity With” Democrats

Pope Benedict Criticizes Joe Biden for Supporting Abortion: “He’s in Continuity With” Democrats

Retired Pope Benedict XVI brought up the conflict between President Joe Biden’s claims of faith and his support for radical pro-abortion policies in a new interview Monday.

Benedict, who is 93, retired as head of the Catholic Church in 2013. He recently spoke with the Italian news outlet Corriere della Sera about a number of issues, including Biden, according to Breitbart.

Biden describes himself as a devout Catholic, but he also supports radical pro-abortion and anti-religious freedom policies that contradict his faith. This has caused controversy among Catholics, especially Catholic leaders in America, about whether Biden should be allowed to receive communion if he remains unrepentant.

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham Signs Bill Legalizing Killing Babies in Abortions Up to Birth

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a radical pro-abortion bill into law Friday, one that will keep abortions up to birth legal for years to come and could cause doctors and nurses to flee the state.

Grisham, a pro-abortion Democrat, thanked lawmakers for sending her the bill, claiming it will promote “equality for all,” according to NM Political Report.

“Anyone who seeks to violate bodily integrity, or to criminalize womanhood, is in the business of dehumanization,” the governor said in a statement. “New Mexico is not in that business – not any more. Our state statutes now reflect this inviolable recognition of humanity and dignity.”

Oklahoma Committee Passes Bill Banning Abortions When Unborn Baby’s Heartbeat Begins

Oklahoma Committee Passes Bill Banning Abortions When Unborn Baby’s Heartbeat Begins

Oklahoma House lawmakers advanced a pro-life bill Thursday to protect unborn babies with beating hearts from violent abortion deaths.

Fox 25 reports the heartbeat bill, House Bill 2441, passed the House States Right Committee in 5-1 vote.

Sponsored by state Rep. Todd Russ, R-Cordell, the bill would prohibit abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Exceptions would be allowed if the mother’s life is at risk or a doctor certifies in writing that her pregnancy is “medically futile.”

“This bill is about protecting the most vulnerable – the unborn child,” Russ said. “Hearing a heartbeat confirms what everyone already knows: These are living babies, not clumps of tissue that feel nothing.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem Signs Bill to Stop Infanticide, Care for Babies Born Alive After Abortion

by Administrator

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem signed a pro-life bill Wednesday to protect newborn babies who survive abortions from infanticide.

News Center 1 reports Noem’s signature means state House Bill 1051 becomes law. It overwhelmingly passed the state legislature last week.

“The pro-life cause continues even after a child is born,” she said in a statement. “Today, I signed Born Alive legislation to guarantee the right to life for every baby that is born alive. We expect doctors to treat all children equally, even those born in horrific circumstances. It’s basic human decency.”

Sponsored by state Rep. Fred Deutsch, R-Brookings, the pro-life legislation requires that the same basic medical care be provided to a baby who survives an abortion that would be provided to any other baby born at the same gestational age.

UN Claims Denying Women Abortions is Torture Even Though Abortions Torture Unborn Babies

It’s high time the world takes action to stop the torture of the most defenseless and vulnerable – unborn babies.

Over the past year, the majority of the world has agreed to take special precautions in order to protect the “most vulnerable” – specifically the elderly and immunocompromised – who are most susceptible and likely to suffer and even die from the current pandemic.

Yet, much of the world continues to turn a blind eye to the killing, through means that are tantamount to torture, of those who are completely defenseless – unborn babies still in their mothers’ wombs.

We recently told you how abortion has become the world’s leading cause of death, surpassing cancer, heart disease, and even criminal violence.

Xavier Becerra Desperately Tries to Hide How He Wanted to Force Catholic Nuns to Fund Abortions

Xavier Becerra Desperately Tries to Hide How He Wanted to Force Catholic Nuns to Fund Abortions

Joe Biden’s nominee to be the HHS Secretary desperately tried to cover up his attempt to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to fund abortions today during a Senate hearing on his confirmation.

Although the California Attorney General fought in court to make the Little Sisters pay for abortion-causing drugs in their health care plan, he claimed during the hearing that he “never sued any nuns.”

Becerra sued the federal government in 2017 because President Donald Trump has instituted a pro-life rule to protect Christians from having to pay for abortions under the Obamacare abortion mandate. The Little Sisters of the Poor fought the lawsuit because they knew if the mandate were enforced and the pro-life rule overturn, their conscience rights would be in jeopardy.

Texas Abortions are Increasing Because More Babies are Killed Using Dangerous Abortion Pills

Texas Abortions are Increasing Because More Babies are Killed Using Dangerous Abortion Pills

by Administrator

The number of elective abortions in Texas fell by approximately 36,000 from 1990 until 2017. Then the number of abortions rose in 2018 and again in 2019.

Something has gone wrong.

The previous abortion downward trend had been steady, laudable, and attributable to a multitude of Pro-Life victories. Fewer women were obtaining abortions, even while more women became pregnant. Thousands of preborn children were saved from being murdered by the abortion industry.

Numerous reasons underpin the previous decades-long drop in abortions. Reasons abortions have decreased in Texas include:

  • Pregnancy resource centers stand (sometimes literally) opposite abortion facilities.
  • Mandatory sonograms illuminate the humanity, beauty, and vulnerability of preborn life.

Planned Parenthood Kills 41 Babies for Every Woman It Helps With Prenatal Care

Planned Parenthood Kills 41 Babies for Every Woman It Helps With Prenatal Care

Last December, when new president Alexis McGill Johnson told the Washington Post that Planned Parenthood was through marginalizing abortion, declaring “We are a proud abortion provider,” she wasn’t kidding.

Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report for 2019-2020 has just come out and the group’s abortion performance and advocacy is front and center.

Despite a transition in leadership and a very slight decline in revenues, Planned Parenthood performed a record number of abortions – 354,871 – in 2019That would represent more than 41% of the most recent reliable national abortion figure, giving Planned Parenthood a commanding share of the nation’s abortion market.

If you search the text of the Equality Act for the term “abortion,” you won’t find it.

And while that might be by design, should the act ever become law, it would be disastrous for all Americans who care about protecting innocent unborn life.

The House of Representatives is set to vote on this dangerous piece of legislation this week. In addition to being a Trojan horse for abortion promotion, the Equality Act promotes inequality because it would penalize Americans for their beliefs about marriage and biological sex.

The Equality Act would amend federal civil rights law by adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” as protected classes.

Satanic Temple Files Lawsuit for “Religious Right” to Kill Babies in Abortions

Satanic Temple Files Lawsuit for “Religious Right” to Kill Babies in Abortions

by Administrator

Texas is a new target of the Satanic Temple and its plans to challenge pro-life laws based on the notion that aborting an unborn baby is a “religious right.”

This month, funded, in part, by the abortion of an unborn baby that it raffled off in August, the satanic group filed a lawsuit arguing that Texas informed consent laws violate its members’ religious freedom, The Dallas Observer reports.

Texas requires abortion facilities to provide informed consent information to women at least 24 hours prior to doing the abortion. This includes requiring abortion facilities to do an ultrasound and share the unborn baby’s image with the mother as well as provide an informational packet about the abortion, fetal development, abortion risks and resources for parenting and adoption.

Premature Baby Born at 22 Weeks Heads Home From Hospital

Premature Baby Born at 22 Weeks Heads Home From Hospital

Baby Sofia Viktoria Birina was allowed to go home from the hospital on Feb. 10, nine days after her due date.

But the milestone was especially significant for the Scottish baby and her parents after she was born 18 weeks prematurely on Oct. 2, 2020, the UK news site RTE reports.

Sofia weighed 1.1 pounds at birth after she spent just 22 weeks in her mother’s womb, according to the report. In the UK, abortions are legal up to 24 weeks without restriction.

Her parents, Inars and Egija Birina, said the doctors put their daughter’s chance of survival at just 10 percent.

Republican Colorado Rep. Doug Lamborn warned Democratic leaders Wednesday that Republicans will use “every tool in the legislative arsenal” to block Democratic efforts to repeal the Hyde Amendment, according to a letter exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

President Joe Biden has repeatedly promised to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal funds for abortions. His assurances are backed by Democratic leadership and pro-abortion advocates pushing to axe the amendment.

Lamborn highlighted “troubling” recent “rhetoric and policy directives” in his Wednesday letter, signed by more than 80 members of Congress, to Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders.

A mom who took steps to save her unborn child after starting a chemical abortion is thankful to have her son, and she is urging other moms who believe abortion is their only choice to pause and not act in haste.

You will not regret having your baby, Hannah would like those moms to know, whereas the absence of your child would be unthinkable.

Baby Landyn, now 19 months old, was saved through abortion pill reversal (APR). Listening to his mom, it’s clear that this little boy brings the family much happiness.

“I’m so, so glad that I didn’t do that,” Hannah said of her impending abortion.

The long-awaited “Roe v. Wade” film, which tells the backstory behind the infamous U.S. Supreme Court abortion ruling, is coming out in April.

On Friday, the film will premiere at CPAC in Orlando, Florida with producer Nick Loeb and Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight, The Federalist reports. In April, it will be available online through Amazon Prime and iTunes.

“Because the movie aligns with the conservative message, I reached out to CPAC to see if they would have any interest in holding it during the event because it’s in Florida and they’ve got a giant space that will accommodate social distancing,” Loeb told The Hollywood Reporter.

There has been a rapid rise in deaths caused by euthanasia across Belgium and the Netherlands, according to a Vienna-based bioethics institute. Antonia Tully, of the SPUC Lives Worth Living Campaign, said: “It is sad that people see death as the solution to their problems. But this is how people start to think once euthanasia has been legalised.”

The Vienna-based Institute for Medical Anthropology and Bioethics (IMABE) reported this month that the number of people killed by euthanasia and assisted suicide had surged in Belgium from just 24 in 2002 to 2,656 in 2019.

During the same period, the number of people killed by assisted suicide in the Netherlands increased from 1,882 to 6,361.

A South Carolina bill designed to ban abortions when an unborn baby’s heart starts beating moved ahead on Tuesday after the House Judiciary Committee voted 15-8 along party lines to advance the measure to the full state House.

Republicans supported the pro-life bill while Democrats voted against it. S.C. Rep. Mandy Kimmons, R-Dorchester, was not present to vote on the bill, and S.C. Rep. Ivory Thigpen, D-Richland, abstained from voting. Republicans turned back a variety of Democrat amendment designed to either kill the bill outright or weaken it.

With the state Senate already approving the measure, as long as the bill is passed on the House floor with no amendments requring a second Sneate vote the measure will head to pro-life Gov.

A major figure in the Southern Baptist community has joined his fellow pro-lifers in the Catholic community to condemn President Joe Biden who “has completely broken with his church’s bedrock beliefs in the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death.”

Dr. Richard Land is president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary, Executive Editor of the Christian Post, and former president of the influential Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention.

An Arkansas state Senate committee has a passed a bill that would ban killing babies in abortions, calling abortion a “crime against humanity.”

Senate Bill 6 is the “Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act to Abolish Abortion in Arkansas” and a Senate panel approved the measure and cleared it to go to the full Arkansas Senate next week.

“Abortion, as you will read in SB6, is a crime against humanity in which over 62 million innocent babies have been killed in our nation and we believe it’s important now at this moment to take a stand, in fact, it’s past time,” Senator Jason Rapert, the bill sponsor, told his fellow legislators today.

Catholic Archbishop Slams Joe Biden: His Promotion of Abortion is a “Great Evil”

by Administrator

Catholic Archbishop Joseph Naumann said President Joe Biden is promoting a “great evil” through his new pro-abortion policies.

Speaking with Newsmax TV on Wednesday, the Kansas City archbishop said the situation is worse because Biden, unlike other presidents who have pushed pro-abortion policies, professes to be a devout Catholic.

“We’ve faced presidents before who were aggressive in their advocacy for abortion, but this is a unique situation for the church in the United States, the Catholic Church, because we haven’t had a Catholic in that office doing this,” Naumann told The Chris Salcedo Show. “So, he creates a real problem for the church in the United States because he’s confusing people about what authentic Catholic teaching is.”
