Pressured to abort due to a prenatal diagnosis, they refused and their daughter was born healthy

Pressured to abort due to a prenatal diagnosis, they refused and their daughter was born healthy

by Administrator

Focus on the Family has produced a pro-life program featuring interviews with individuals who have lived through the “hard cases” of abortion. These are the so-called “exceptions” to pro-life laws, such as babies with a poor prenatal diagnosis — cases in which even many people who consider themselves to be pro-life erroneously support abortion.

In August, a woman named Rachel Guy (whose story has been shared by Live Action News before) shared her story with Focus on the Family. Rachel’s parents were devout Christians, and they wanted a child very much but struggled for six years to conceive. When Rachel’s mother finally became pregnant, they were overjoyed.

WATCH: People With Down Syndrome Condemn Abortion: “My Life Matters”

WATCH: People With Down Syndrome Condemn Abortion: “My Life Matters”

by Administrator

“My life matters.”

That’s how Missourians with Down syndrome responded this week as a federal court considers whether states may protect unborn babies with disabilities from discrimination.

Several Missouri families shared their stories in a video produced by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s Office as it defends a 2019 pro-life law at the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. Among other things, the law prohibits discriminatory abortions on unborn babies based on a Down syndrome diagnosis, their sex or race. Planned Parenthood is challenging the law.

One parent, Edward Lyons said the moment that they learned their son James had Down syndrome was one of the hardest of his life.

California judge rejects preliminary injunction to permit euthanasia within the California assisted suicide act.

California judge rejects preliminary injunction to permit euthanasia within the California assisted suicide act.

Executive Director, Euthanasia Prevention Coalition

A California federal judge has rejected a preliminary injunction asking the court to permit euthanasia within the state assisted suicide act. Link to the court decision (Link).

On August 30 I wrote an article about the California court case to permit euthanasia within the state assisted suicide act. The case argued that some people with disabilities, who are approved for assisted suicide, are unable to self-administer the lethal drugs. Therefore, based on the Americans with Disabilities Act, the court must permit euthanasia (doctor administered death) in these cases.

On September 13 I wrote that the California court must reject the challenge to the state assisted suicide act based on (among other reasons): 

  1. There is no right to assisted suicide, therefore there is no legal requirement to amend the perceived inequality within the state assisted suicide law.

Whoopi Goldberg Promotes Killing Babies in Abortion, Then Claims “We’re All Pro-Life”

It’s really clear that some of the liberal hosts of The View don’t even listen to themselves when they talk. If they did, they’d realize how insane it is to suggest that they are “all pro-life.” On Tuesday, even the presence of Republican guest co-host Carly Fiorina and absence of Joy Behar could not curb the other co-hosts’ outlandish and false claims regarding abortion and the pro-life movement.

The deeply pro-abortion Whoopi Goldberg lectured Fiorina: “We’re all pro-life.” She then opened the segment by commenting on efforts by legislators in both Texas and Mississippi to limit abortions in their state:

Abortion Activist Threatens to Kill Pro-Life Lawmakers Who Voted for Texas Abortion Ban

by Administrator

An abortion activist has posted an online threat to kill the pro-life Texas lawmakers who voted for the state’s abortion ban. There have been a host of threats directed to pro-life elected officials, pro-life Texans and pro-life groups since the state’s abortion ban went into effect three weeks ago, including a bomb threat that brought out police to the headquarters of a local pro-life group.

Here’s more about the death threats:

Law enforcement on Tuesday evening alerted members of the Texas Legislature about “a credible threat” to their safety, citing that the concern was targeted at members who voted for the new six-week abortion ban passed by lawmakers earlier this year.

Florida Legislator Introduces Heartbeat Bill That Would Ban Abortions Just Like Texas

Florida Legislator Introduces Heartbeat Bill That Would Ban Abortions Just Like Texas

by Administrator

A Florida state lawmaker hopes to duplicate Texas’s life-saving efforts with a pro-life heartbeat bill in his state.

On Wednesday, state Rep. Webster Barnaby, R-Deltona, introduced the Florida Heartbeat Act to protect unborn babies from abortion, News 6 Orlando reports.

Similar to the Texas heartbeat law, Florida House Bill 167 would require abortionists to check for an unborn baby’s heartbeat before doing an abortion and prohibit the abortion if they detect a heartbeat. Typically an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable by about six weeks of pregnancy.

The bill also includes a provision unique to the Texas law that would allow private citizens to enforce it by suing abortionists who abort unborn babies with detectable heartbeats or fail to check for a heartbeat before doing the abortion.

Catholic Bishop Slams Pelosi’s Bill to Overturn Every Pro-Life Law Nationwide: “This is Child Sacrifice”

Catholic Bishop Slams Pelosi’s Bill to Overturn Every Pro-Life Law Nationwide: “This is Child Sacrifice”

by Administrator

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s archbishop chastised Catholic politicians Tuesday for supporting a radical pro-abortion bill that promotes “child sacrifice.”

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco urged Catholics to pray and fast for the defeat of the deceptively named Women’s Health Protection Act, according to the Catholic News Agency.

“This proposed legislation is nothing short of child sacrifice,” Cordileone said in a statement. “[It] is surely the type of legislation one would expect from a devout Satanist, not a devout Catholic.”

Pelosi, a San Francisco Democrat who claims to be Catholic, is expected to bring the bill to the House floor for a vote later this week.

Mississippi Attorney General: SCOTUS Should Overturn Roe So States Can Protect Babies From Abortion

The Supreme Court will hear arguments Dec. 1 in what some are saying is the biggest abortion-related case of the past four decades.

Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization could result in the overturning of Roe v. Wade and the returning of power to the states to set their own abortion laws, as they did prior to the high court’s 1973 ruling in Roe.

“I feel very confident that we’re going to win,” Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch says.

Fitch, a Republican, has filed briefs with the Supreme Court asking the justices to deliver “strong clarity” on the issue of abortion in their ruling.

On Wednesday, National Right to Life made known its intent to score any House roll-call votes on the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act (H.R. 3755).

“The Women’s Health Protection Act is designed to remove all legal protections for unborn children on both the federal and state levels,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life (NRLC). “The Women’s Health Protection Act is, in effect, the Abortion-Without-Limits-Until Birth Act.”

Tobias continued, “The only ones to benefit from this legislation would be abortionists and abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood. This legislation endangers women and their unborn children, would expand taxpayer funding of abortion, and would no longer require that a woman be given information about the development of her unborn child.”

A grieving mum has said that being able to take her stillborn daughter home in a ‘cuddle cot’ for a few days before her funeral was “immensely comforting”.

Amy Dutch, 25, gave birth to her stillborn daughter Alicia-Mae, on 18 April. Sadly her daughter had died in the womb shortly before she was born. After leaving the hospital she visited the funeral home every day to see her daughter. A bereavement midwife then arranged for a refrigerated ‘cuddle cot’ so that Amy could take her baby home for the final 12 days before the funeral.

Amy was able to sleep next to her daughter and spent hours reading Star Wars storybooks, and taking her on walks around the house as a way of grieving and bonding with her deceased daughter.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott signs bill limiting abortion pill to seven weeks

Texas Governor Greg Abbott signs bill limiting abortion pill to seven weeks

by Administrator

UPDATE, 9/22/21: According to KHOU-11, Governor Greg Abbott has signed SB 4, which bars medical providers “from providing an abortion‑inducing drug to a pregnant woman without satisfying the applicable informed consent requirements for abortions.” KHOU reports that the law “pre-emptively puts a ban on doctors’ ability to mail abortion pills to patients” which is already not allowed in the state of Texas. SB 4 restricts the abortion pill to the first seven weeks of pregnancy. Current FDA restrictions limit the pill to the first 10 weeks of pregnancy, though abortion providers like Planned Parenthood have been prescribing the pill for pregnancies beyond FDA recommendations which leads to a higher failure rate.

65 Members of Congress Demand Investigation After University Does Research With Aborted Baby Parts

65 Members of Congress Demand Investigation After University Does Research With Aborted Baby Parts

by Administrator

Almost 65 members of Congress called for an investigation Tuesday into allegations that aborted babies may be being born alive and their organs harvested for scientific research through a taxpayer-funded project at the University of Pittsburgh.

“We are alarmed by public records obtained by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) which show that the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) may have violated federal law by altering abortion procedures to harvest organs from babies who were old enough to live outside the womb,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter to the Biden administration.

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.

The assisted suicide lobby must have forgot to tell Polly Toynbee that legalizing assisted suicide has nothing to do with money as she argues that assisted suicide needs to be legalized in the UK based on healthcare savings.


Toynbee doesn’t come out with a crass statement demanding that people die to save money, instead she writes about The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) decisions and protocols concerning end-of-life care as Nice attempts to control healthcare spending.

Toynbee writes:

On Thursday, it (Nice) opened a consultation period for new guidelines on how much NHS England should spend on end-of-life drugs, planning to remove some of the extra funding for very expensive drugs that may only delay death a little.

The CCHR stated that:

While the U.S. limits this to terminally ill individuals, … it’s a quick jump from this to killing patients who do not have terminal illnesses but are suffering emotional, not physical disabilities after failed psychiatric treatments.

UN Human Rights “Experts” Slam Texas Abortion Ban That Protects Human Rights for Unborn Babies

by Administrator

Several United Nations human rights experts criticized Texas this week for protecting human rights for babies in the womb through its new heartbeat law.

Scottish Legal News reports the UN human rights leaders believe abortion is a human right and restricting it amounts to “structural sex and gender-based discrimination at its worst.”

Melissa Upreti, chair of the United Nations working group on discrimination against women and girls, slammed the Texas law as a violation of international human rights in an interview with The Guardian.

“This new law will make abortion unsafe and deadly, and create a whole new set of risks for women and girls,” Upreti said.

For the first time in nearly 50 years, Americans finally know the face and name of the child whose life, by no choice of her own, was the reason for the infamous U.S. Supreme Court abortion ruling Roe v. Wade.

Unknown to many, Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” of the case, never had an abortion. Instead, she gave birth to her baby girl and made an adoption plan for her.

This week, The Atlantic revealed the “Roe baby’s” name for the first time: Shelley Lynn Thornton.

For decades, Thornton avoided the press and even hid her troubling background from friends.

Joe Biden made it official today, by filing a lawsuit seeking to overturn the Texas abortion ban that has saved hundreds of babies from abortions. In announcing the lawsuit, Attorney General Merrick Garland  falsely claimed the Constitution has a right to abortion.

“The Department of Justice has a duty to defend the constitution of the United States and to uphold the rule of law,” he said.

“The act is clearly unconstitutional under longstanding Supreme Court precedent,” he said. “Those precedents hold, in the words of Planned Parenthood v. Casey that ‘regardless of whether exceptions are made for particular circumstances, a state may not prohibit any woman from making the ultimate decision to terminate her pregnancy before viability.’”

In her executive order, Noem told the South Dakota Department of Health to issue rules that the abortion pill can only be prescribed or dispensed by a state-licensed physician following an in-person exam, according to ABC News. That law already exists, and the U.S.

The Food Network distanced itself from former “Ginormous Food” host Josh Denny this month after he voiced his support for the new Texas heartbeat law.

The Mix reports Denny, who hosted the show on Food Network in 2017, posted several controversial comments Sept. 1 on Twitter right after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to temporarily block the pro-life law.

The Texas heartbeat law went into effect Sept. 1, prohibiting abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. The law has the potential to save tens of thousands of babies’ lives and protect countless mothers from the pain and regret of abortion every year.
