Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin Proposes Amendment Banning Tax-Funded Abortions

Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin Proposes Amendment Banning Tax-Funded Abortions

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America today celebrated the pro-life leadership of Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin after he proposed a budget amendment to stop taxpayer-funded abortion. The governor’s budget would restore a policy that mirrors the federal Hyde Amendment, which has saved more than 2.5 million lives.

Youngkin is keeping his promise to promote pro-life policies that protect the unborn and their mothers.

“We praise Governor Youngkin for keeping a key promise to pro-life voters and acting swiftly on the will of the people, who overwhelmingly reject abortion on demand. Abortion is not ‘family planning’ and Virginians’ hard-earned tax dollars should never be funneled to the abortion industry,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA Pro-Life America.

Planned Parenthood Botched Abortion So Badly Woman Hemorrhaged, Then It Covered Up the 911 Call

Planned Parenthood Botched Abortion So Badly Woman Hemorrhaged, Then It Covered Up the 911 Call

On May 20, 2022, shortly after noon, an ambulance arrived at Baltimore Health Center – Planned Parenthood. A sidewalk counselor captured video of the emergency medical personnel’s arrival, as well as a patient being loaded into the emergency vehicle on a gurney.

But when Operation Rescue requested the 911 recording of the obvious medical emergency, a recording was provided of an altogether different incident – a woman who had coffee spilled inside her bag of belongings by the facility’s escort.

Operation Rescue later obtained a radio dispatch recording for the timeframe surrounding the sidewalk counselor’s documentation, and we were able to glean more information about the medical emergency.

Former Abortionist Explains Why He’s Now Pro-Life and Stopped Doing Abortions

Former Abortionist Explains Why He’s Now Pro-Life and Stopped Doing Abortions

It took a horrific tragedy for former abortionist Anthony Levatino to wake up and realize he was killing other people’s children.

And it happened when he lost one of his own.

In an interview Wednesday on The First TV, the New York OB-GYN explained why he finally quit aborting unborn babies and became a pro-life advocate.

As a young doctor, “I wouldn’t have hesitated to tell you I’m pro-choice,” Levatino said. “This is a decision between a woman, her doctor, and nobody including the baby’s father has anything to say about it.”

He said he learned to do first- and second-trimester abortions as part of his OB-GYN training, and began doing them as part of his private medical practice in the late 1970s and early ’80s.

Years after her abortion, this woman found healing and purpose in the pro-life movement

Years after her abortion, this woman found healing and purpose in the pro-life movement

by Administrator

She was just 16 years old, afraid, and confused when a Planned Parenthood counselor informed Christine “Christy” Ballor that she was 10 weeks pregnant and that her baby just resembled a “blob,” or a “tiny tumor.” The counselor told Ballard she would not have to tell anyone she had an abortion and could on with her life – carefree as if nothing ever happened. She needed to decide quickly, though, because at 12 weeks gestation, the cost for the procedure would increase.

Ballor told Live Action News, “Being an unwed mother in 1972 was an embarrassment. My greatest fear was shaming and disappointing my family who already disapproved of my older boyfriend so it was very appealing that I could have the abortion without ever having to tell my family.”

Planned Parenthood president derides pro-life movement as a ‘small minority’

Planned Parenthood president derides pro-life movement as a ‘small minority’

by Administrator

With Roe v. Wade closer to being overturned than ever before, the abortion industry more concerned than ever. And that’s especially true for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain. In an interview with Forbes, Alexis McGill Johnson, the president and CEO, spoke about the future of abortion with contributor Liz Elting. Together, McGill Johnson and Elting parroted falsehoods about abortion and the pro-life movement, and how women supposedly need abortion to survive.

Abortion as a force for financial good

Elting began by arguing that banning abortion “makes women less likely to build a successful career,” and continued to belabor that point throughout the interview.

American Medical Association: Restrictions on killing preborn humans is a ‘human rights violation’

American Medical Association: Restrictions on killing preborn humans is a ‘human rights violation’

by Administrator

As more and more states have implemented protections for preborn children, the American Medical Association (AMA) has responded by announcing it will do all it can to protect abortion, labeling protections for preborn human beings a “violation of human rights.”

In a press release, the AMA announced a newly adopted policy which would seek protection for abortionists against what AMA deemed as “government systems of control and punishment that criminalize reproductive health services.” The AMA said it would challenge any penalties against abortionists or their patients, although virtually every current pro-life law in the country contains no penalties for a woman who has an abortion.

Abortion Activists Soaked in Blood-Stained Clothes Protest Outside Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s Home

Soaked in fake blood and carrying baby dolls, abortion activists protested Saturday outside the home of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett in Virginia.

Barrett is one of the justices who likely will help overturn Roe v. Wade this summer through the Mississippi abortion case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. Since Politico reported about a leaked draft ruling on the case in May, abortion activists have been protesting outside Barrett’s and other justices’ homes.

On Saturday, young women with Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights organized a “baby doll procession,” wearing white clothes with fake blood between their legs and holding baby dolls outside Barrett’s home, according to Townhall.

Texas Teen Who Wanted Abortion Now Blessed With Twin Babies: “A Miracle From the Lord”

Texas Teen Who Wanted Abortion Now Blessed With Twin Babies: “A Miracle From the Lord”

When Brooke Alexander looks at her twin daughters, she realizes that Kendall and Olivia might not be alive without the Texas heartbeat law.

The 18-year-old from Corpus Christi, Texas, wanted an abortion, but the pro-life law stopped her from getting one, according to the Washington Post.

Now, despite her struggles with finances, relationships and future plans, Alexander is thankful for her baby girls.

“It’s really scary thinking that I wouldn’t have them,” she told the newspaper, as baby Olivia grasped her finger.

According to the report, Alexander discovered she was pregnant on Aug. 29, 2021, two days before the Texas heartbeat law went into effect.

Groundbreaking heart procedure saving lives of ‘extremely early and extremely sick’ preemies

Groundbreaking heart procedure saving lives of ‘extremely early and extremely sick’ preemies

by Administrator

Doctors at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta are utilizing a groundbreaking procedure to help give premature babies a better shot at survival. The procedure, which closes an open flap of the heart vessel, was recently successfully performed on a baby girl weighing just one pound one ounce.

A press release from the hospital detailed the procedure, which is called a transcatheter Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA). It involves doctors inserting a catheter into the baby’s leg to transport and implant a device in the infant’s heart. The entire process is still relatively new and was approved by the FDA in 2019.

 

“If you hold your fist like this, that’s the size of your heart.

Florida County Proposes Abortion Ban so No Abortion Business Ever Opens There

Florida County Proposes Abortion Ban so No Abortion Business Ever Opens There

Commissioner James Calkins of Santa Rosa County, Florida, wants to take action to protect unborn babies from abortion this summer in the likelihood that the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to ban abortions again.

During a June 9 meeting, Calkins said he is working with the county attorney to draft an ordinance that would prohibit abortion facilities from opening in Santa Rosa County, the Gulf Breeze News reports.

“We want to be a real pro-life sanctuary and stop a potential abortion clinic from coming to Santa Rosa County,” Calkins said.

He told the other commissioners that he plans to introduce the All Lives Matter ordinance at the June 14 meeting.

Pro-Abortion Radicals Attack Pro-Life Group’s Office: Smash Windows, Vandalize Walls

Just one day after promising more violence against pro-life groups and pregnancy centers that help women, pro-abortion radical attacked a pro-life organization’s office in Minnesota.

Last night, pro-abortion extremists vandalized the Minneapolis-based office of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, a pro-life group that has been fighting for women and unborn children since the late 1960s.

Last night the MCCL office was vandalized for the second time in recent weeks,” the pro-life group wrote on Twitter. “But we are grateful that we are all safe.

As #SCOTUS prepares to rule in #DobbsVsJackson, please pray for the safety of the justices and of MCCL and other pro-life group,” it continued.

Abortionist Became Pro-Life After Seeing Aborted Baby’s Arms and Legs: “For the First Time I Saw a Little Boy”

Abortionist Became Pro-Life After Seeing Aborted Baby’s Arms and Legs: “For the First Time I Saw a Little Boy”

Dr. Beverly McMillian thought she was helping women when she began doing abortions in Mississippi after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade.

But after looking at a tiny aborted baby’s arms one day and thinking of her own son, McMillian realized she was wrong.

In a new column at the Daily Wire, the Mississippi OB-GYN explained why she stopped aborting unborn babies and became pro-life. Now, her mission is to help others understand the truth about abortion.

“I knew since high school that I wanted to go into medicine. I wanted to help and heal people,” she began.

Leftists Target Pro-Life Congressional Candidate With Vandalism: “F— Charity Barry”

Leftists Target Pro-Life Congressional Candidate With Vandalism: “F— Charity Barry”

Wisconsin pro-life Congressional candidate Charity Barry was another target of vandalism Tuesday as concerns mount about violence directed at people who want to protect unborn babies from abortion.

The incident is the second vandalism against a pro-life politician this week. The office of a Republican state representative in Washington state also was vandalized and attempted to be set on fire early Monday.

The Monroe Times reports local police are investigating the graffiti against Barry that was spray-painted on Vince’s Pizza and an adjacent Dollar General in Monroe, Wisconsin. Barry was supposed to appear at an event at the restaurant Wednesday.

Barry is a Republican primary candidate for the Wisconsin 2nd Congressional District.

25 Pro-Life Groups Demand Merrick Garland Stop Pro-Abortion Campaign of Terror

25 Pro-Life Groups Demand Merrick Garland Stop Pro-Abortion Campaign of Terror

A coalition of 25 pro-life groups have signed on to a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding that he put an end to this current pro-abortion campaign of terror. As many as 60 cases of firebombings, attacks, vandalism, and other forms of violence and intimidation have taken place since the leak of the draft of the Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.

Their letter comes after the latest incident of vandalism, where pro-abortion radicals attacked a pro-life organization’s office in Minnesota — smashing windows and vandalizing the office walls.

National Review has more:

In a letter organized by the non-profit CatholicVote, 25 pro-life leaders, mostly think tank presidents, called the Justice Department’s attention to the many attacks on pregnancy centers, churches, and even Supreme Court justices that have occurred since the Dobbs majority opinion leak last month.

Premature baby weighing just one pound saved with ‘kangaroo care’ from mom

Premature baby weighing just one pound saved with ‘kangaroo care’ from mom

by Administrator

Little Elsie Dutton had a difficult start to life, born premature at just 23 weeks and weighing 1lb, 4oz at birth. While doctors initially weren’t sure she was going to survive, they soon realized that her mother’s snuggles — known as ‘kangaroo care’ — were a crucial component of the little girl’s well-being.

Elsie’s mom, Amy Dutton, told the Mirror that after birth, she was able to hold Elsie for just 10 seconds before the little girl was whisked away to an incubator. Then, when she was 10 days old, Elsie had surgery to repair a hole in her bowel. Dutton explained that after a month in the incubator, doctors suggested that she start cradling little Elsie skin-to-skin time against her body for three to four hours a day, noting that studies have shown that this type of kangaroo care has notable benefits to babies.

Joe Biden May Declare Public Health Emergency to Keep Abortion Legal After Roe Overturned

Joe Biden May Declare Public Health Emergency to Keep Abortion Legal After Roe Overturned

Joe Biden reportedly is considering declaring a nation-wide public health emergency if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade this summer.

Such an order potentially could allow the Biden administration to welcome abortionists to practice on federally-governed military bases in pro-life states, according to The Post Millennial. The idea is to allow unborn babies to continue being aborted in states with abortion bans and to protect abortionists from prosecution.

The New York Times first reported about the proposal, though administration officials expressed uncertainty about its legality and noted that they are researching a number of options in response to the potential reversal of Roe.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul Calls Pro-Life Americans “Neanderthals”

New York Governor Kathy Hochul Calls Pro-Life Americans “Neanderthals”

As you doubtlessly recall, the Democratic Party has spent the past few years hearkening back to a kinder, gentler era of politics before President Donald Trump mucked everything up with his “divisive rhetoric.” Days when politicians stuck to the issues and avoided personal attacks – when political discourse was defined by mutual respect and civility.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D) evidently didn’t get the memo.

Hochul had some choice words for those who disagreed with her as she signed a radical pro-abortion legislative package.

Hochul said during her speech on Monday:

The women of New York will never be subjugated to government mandated pregnancies because that’s what will ensue if Roe v.

Doctor: Unlike Abortion Clinics, Pregnancy Centers Actually Help Women

Doctor: Unlike Abortion Clinics, Pregnancy Centers Actually Help Women

What would it be like to go to work in the morning and find a death threat spray-painted across the façade of your office? What would it be like knowing that a facility just like yours was recently fire-bombed near Buffalo, New York? Would you keep showing up? Would you continue to put yourself in danger?

Maybe you could, if you knew you were saving fragile lives and helping vulnerable women and girls each day. Maybe you could, if you were very brave.

These are the hard questions facing the volunteers and staff at a pregnancy care center in South Florida where I volunteer.

US Suicide rates are now highest among the elderly.

US Suicide rates are now highest among the elderly.

Alex Schadenberg
Executive Director, Euthanasia Prevention Coalition

Suicide is always a tragedy but a little known fact is that the highest US suicide rate is among the elderly. But this was not always the case.


When examining the suicide data published by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) the highest suicide rate in America was historically among the 45 to 54 age group, but since 2019 the 85 years and older age group has the highest suicide rate and in 2020 the 75 – 84 age group had the second highest suicide rate.

The US suicide rate was increasing on a yearly basis but it has gone down since 2018.
