Google is Censoring Information on How Abortion Kills and Injures Women

Operation Rescue has released an updated version of its popular informational page, “Abortion In America.”

This page, which contains data, graphs, and links on currently available abortion statistics all in one place, was once Operation Rescue’s most-visited page before Google searches first began suppressing the content in 2017.

The newly updated page contains more data than ever before, including information about abortion facilities in America derived from Operation Rescue’s annual abortion clinic survey, which provides the most up-to-date information available on abortion facility numbers and trends.

Data about the numbers of abortions and abortion demographics have been derived from reports issued by the Center for Disease Control’s report released on November 27, 2020, that contained data from 2018.

South Dakota pro-life laws take effect, including protection for babies with Down syndrome

South Dakota pro-life laws take effect, including protection for babies with Down syndrome

A restriction on abortion based on a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis, which was signed into law by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem earlier this year, has officially taken effect.

Noem announced the good news on social media, explaining that multiple South Dakota pro-life laws became official on July 1, 2021. “Little Valentina Duffy is such a beautiful baby, and she happens to have Down Syndrome,” Noem wrote on Twitter. “Several pro-life bills that I signed are becoming law in South Dakota TODAY, including a ban on abortions based on a Down syndrome diagnosis. We’re protecting the right to life of all SD kids.”

Tennessee residents with disabilities will now be eligible for organ transplants

Tennessee residents with disabilities will now be eligible for organ transplants

Tennessee residents with developmental disabilities are celebrating, as July 1 marked the effective date for a law that made them eligible to receive organ transplants.

ABC’s News Channel 9 reported on the young poster child whose story became the impetus for passage of the new bill. At just five years old, Cora Hall of Athens, Tennessee, has already lived through multiple major surgeries to manage the complications of Down syndrome.

Cora’s mom, Ashley, described her daughter, saying, “She’s just a five-year-old spunky little girl that loves life, and she loves hard. She loves to dance and sing, and she’s just a true joy.

University Caught Harvesting Genitalia From Aborted Babies for Research

University Caught Harvesting Genitalia From Aborted Babies for Research

The University of California San Francisco, a hub for all things abortion in the U.S., is harvesting aborted babies’ genitalia and other organs for research, according to documents obtained by pro-life advocates.

The Daily Wire reports Pro-Life San Francisco made the gruesome discovery in documents that it requested through the California Public Records Act. UC San Francisco is a public, taxpayer-funded university.

Among the documents provided by the university were “Arrival/Departure and Collection Lists,” or logs listing the human tissue that was collected from aborted babies, according to the report.

Live Action, which reviewed the documents, found that many of the lists included “genitalia and/or gonads” from aborted babies.

Single Mom Who Rejected Abortion Graduates From Pharmacy School

Single Mom Who Rejected Abortion Graduates From Pharmacy School

Brittany stared with disbelief at the pregnancy test in her hand. It was positive. Fear ran rampant throughout her body.

This wasn’t part of the plan! She was too young to have a baby! She was still in college; she wanted to be a pharmacist! She couldn’t provide for a child! 

The adrenaline. The emotion. Deep breaths. Deep breaths. She needed to think …

Maybe an abortion. She could just go in, have it done, and get on with her life as if it never happened, right?

“Throughout that day, I thought more and more about it,” she recalled. “I Googled everything, so I decided to look up what occurs during an abortion, as well as the physical and emotional effects.”

Pro-Life Advocate Starts Pro-Life Bank Since Most Banks Donate to Planned Parenthood

Pro-Life Advocate Starts Pro-Life Bank Since Most Banks Donate to Planned Parenthood

Pro-life evangelist Nick Vujicic, known as the man without limbs, is starting a pro-life bank.

Vujicic told The Christian Post that he was disturbed to learn that most banks donate part of their profits to Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups.

He believes Christians need to do more to stop abortion, and, with a background in finance, he and Betsy Gray, the executive director of Network Medical Women’s Center, decided to create a bank that donates only to life-affirming causes.

Vujicic, the founder of Life Without Limbs, said he cannot imagine just how much money banks have donated toward the killing of unborn babies in abortions in America.

SHOCK: Chicago Public Schools plan to give 10-year-olds access to condoms

SHOCK: Chicago Public Schools plan to give 10-year-olds access to condoms

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that students as young as fifth grade will have access to condoms in Chicago public schools when they reopen in late August. It’s an effort to prevent teen pregnancies, HIV, and other sexually transmitted diseases, but research shows that these sex ed programs do more harm than good.

No U.S. state considers children younger than 16 legally able to consent to sex, including Illinois. Yet, Illinois’ REACH Act, which includes graphic material from Planned Parenthood, mandates sex education for Kindergarten through 12th grade. It defines “consent” as “knowing, affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in specific interpersonal, physical, or sexual activity at any given time.”

14 Catholic Groups: Abortion is Not a Human Right, It “Eliminates an Innocent Human Life”

14 Catholic Groups: Abortion is Not a Human Right, It “Eliminates an Innocent Human Life”

Catholic organizations across the world criticized the European Parliament in June for approving a radical pro-abortion report that puts pressure on countries to legalize abortions without limits and eliminate conscience protections for medical workers.

In a statement, 14 Catholic organizations said abortion is not a “human right,” as the report claims, because abortion destroys human lives, according to the Catholic News Agency.

“Abortion eliminates an innocent human life and has grave physical and psychological consequences for women who undergo it, and harmful consequences for those who procure it,” they said in the statement published June 23. “Moreover, this proposal would undermine the right of conscientious objection, which is essential to true progress and equality in our societies.”

Olympic Athlete Brianna McNeal Thought an Abortion Would Further Her Career, But It Destroyed It

Olympic Athlete Brianna McNeal Thought an Abortion Would Further Her Career, But It Destroyed It

Olympic gold medalist Brianna McNeal revealed this week that she struggled with guilt and depression after she aborted her unborn baby in 2020 to further her athletic career.

USA Today reports the California athlete shared about her abortion for the first time publicly after the Athletics Integrity Unit banned her from competing last month. McNeal won the gold medal for the 100-meter hurdles in the 2016 Olympics.

McNeal was charged with “tampering within the results management process” for required drug testing for athletes. She recently was disciplined with a five year suspension from the competition, according to the report.

But McNeal, 29, insists that she is “not doping and will never dope,” and her punishment stems from the “very emotional time” when she had her abortion, according to the New York Times.

New South Dakota Law Takes Effect That Bans Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

New South Dakota Law Takes Effect That Bans Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

A new pro-life law is taking effect this week in South Dakota and it bans abortions on babies with Down syndrome. South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem signed the pro-life bill into law back and March and it went into effect yesterday.

Noem signed HB 1110, which bans abortion based on a diagnosis of Down Syndrome as well as three other pro-life bills to protect babies from abortions. Both chambers of the South Dakota legislature passed the ban unanimously. The unanimous 35-0 vote in the state Senate happened less than two weeks after the state House also unanimously passed the pro-life bill.

Abortion Clinic Tells Women to Kill Their Babies With Down Syndrome, Hide the Reason Why

Abortion Clinic Tells Women to Kill Their Babies With Down Syndrome, Hide the Reason Why

An abortion clinic is dodging Ohio law by suggesting that pregnant mothers hide that they want to abort their unborn baby because of a Down syndrome diagnosis.

Preterm Cleveland’s website offers a pop up message telling patients that “it is legal in Ohio to get an abortion for any reason,” but warning that “under a new Ohio law, we cannot provide an abortion if we know that the reason is in whole or in part because of a fetal Down syndrome diagnosis.”

“Preterm is open and seeing patients,” the pop up message reads. “Please call us with any questions or concerns.”

Elizabeth Warren Condemns Filibuster, But She Used It to Block a Bill Stopping Infanticide

Elizabeth Warren Condemns Filibuster, But She Used It to Block a Bill Stopping Infanticide

Sen. Elizabeth Warren believes that the filibuster is bad now that Democrats have control of Congress.

But the Massachusetts Democrat relied on the procedural measure herself to stop pro-life legislation when Republicans were elected to power.

The Daily Wire reports Warren has been calling for an end to the U.S. Senate filibuster for months – ever since Democrats won narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate.

“Last time I read the Constitution, it’s majority rule in both chambers of Congress,” Warren wrote Monday on Twitter. “And it’s only the president of the United States who gets a veto—not the minority leader of the United States Senate.”

Premature Twins Died After Hospital Withholds Treatment, Despite Mom’s Desperate Pleas

Premature Twins Died After Hospital Withholds Treatment, Despite Mom’s Desperate Pleas

Pro-life advocates plan to hold a vigil Sunday at the Ohio Statehouse to remember premature twin boys who died in 2017 while their mother begged the hospital to provide care for them.

Emery and Elliot Finnefrock died at Riverside Methodist Hospital in June 2017 after they were born at 22 weeks and five days of pregnancy. The pro-life group Created Equal said the hospital staff refused to try to save the twins’ lives even though they were born alive, moving and breathing, and their mother, Amanda Finnefrock, begged doctors to try to save them.

North Carolina Governor Vetoes Bill to Ban Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

North Carolina Governor Vetoes Bill to Ban Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

Discrimination against unborn babies is still legal in North Carolina after Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a bill Friday to prohibit abortions based on a baby’s race or the likelihood that the may have Down syndrome.

Cooper, a pro-abortion Democrat, has vetoed a number of pro-life bills since he became governor, including 2019 legislation that would have protected newborns who survive abortions from infanticide.

While signing his latest veto, Cooper slammed the bill as an “unprecedented government intrusion” into a decision that should be between a woman and her doctor, WRAL News reports.

The Human Life Non-Discrimination Act (state House Bill 453) would prohibit abortionists from knowingly doing an abortion because of the unborn baby’s race or the likelihood that he or she has Down syndrome.

Pregnant rape survivor: ‘I wouldn’t be here today’ if I had an abortion

Pregnant rape survivor: ‘I wouldn’t be here today’ if I had an abortion

by Administrator

In the pro-life documentary “Except in Cases of Rape,” Ashley Boyer, who is raising a child conceived through rape, shared her story of choosing life in difficult circumstances. Pro-life laws meant to save lives from abortion often include “exceptions,” including for preborn babies conceived in rape. Essentially, the laws protect preborn babies from abortion unless they were conceived in a sexual assault. These discriminatory “exceptions” send the message to anyone who was conceived in rape that the government does not see their lives as worth living. For many rape survivors, the pressure to abort their babies is too much to bear and some give in, later suffering for it.

The Hyde Amendment Has Saved 2.4 Million Babies From Abortion, Stop Democrats From Killing It

The Hyde Amendment Has Saved 2.4 Million Babies From Abortion, Stop Democrats From Killing It

More than twenty peer-reviewed studies show that more than 2.4 million people are alive today in the United States because of the Hyde Amendment—with about 60,000 babies spared death by abortion every year.

Over 2.4 million people who would have been aborted instead survived because taxpayer funds were unavailable to effectuate their violent demise.

Growing numbers of Americans continue to be shocked to learn that the methods of abortion include dismemberment of a child’s fragile body including decapitation, and that drugs like RU 486 starve the baby to death before he or she is forcibly expelled from the womb.

The multibillion-dollar abortion industry cleverly markets the sophistry of choice while going to extraordinary lengths to ignore, trivialize and cover-up the battered baby-victim.

Why Pro-Life Governor Ron DeSantis Is The Future Of The Republican Party

Why Pro-Life Governor Ron DeSantis Is The Future Of The Republican Party

by Administrator

On May 20, 2020, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis stood outside a Central Florida long-term care facility alongside Vice President Mike Pence and officially arrived on the national scene. In one of the more iconic moments of the early pandemic, DeSantis, when questioned about his COVID-19 response, went off on the reporter, claiming that Florida was faring better on all metrics — deaths and cases — than its blue-state counterparts. DeSantis, pretty much a national unknown at that point, was summarily slotted as the anti-Cuomo, a maverick governor with a disdain for science and no respect for life, unconcerned about Florida’s inevitable decimation at the hands of COVID-19 — he was now Governor DeathSantis.

EU Parliament labels abortion a fundamental right, compares objectors to ‘flat earthers’

by Administrator

The European Union (EU) Parliament voted Thursday in favor of classifying abortion as a fundamental human right, putting pressure on pro-life member states to decriminalize abortion and remove the right of conscientious objection from pro-life medical professionals.

The Report on the situation of sexual and reproductive health and rights in the EU, in the frame of women’s health, caused enormous debate and led to more than 500 amendments from members of Parliament with two alternative texts submitted by pro-life MEPs, according to Politico. Despite pressure from pro-life members and citizens, the report received overwhelming support in May from the Parliament’s Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality.

“Human Beings as Lab Rats.” Scientists are Creating Unborn Babies to Kill for Research

by Administrator

A recent decision by the International Society for Stem Cell Research to lift their “14-day rule” paves the way for human embryos to be used as lab rats, according to ethical scientists at the Charlotte Lozier Institute.

The longstanding rule previously limited experimentation on human embryos to the first two weeks after creation.  The new “guidelines” are being discussed and publicized at ISSCR’s annual conference this week.

“At a time when Americans are increasingly urged to ‘follow the science,’ the ISSCR tarnishes the image of science by showcasing deeply unethical scientific practices,” said Dr. David Prentice, vice president and research director at CLI.
