New Mexico Senate Passes Bill Legalizing Abortions Up to Birth

New Mexico Senate Passes Bill Legalizing Abortions Up to Birth

by Administrator

After rejecting measures to ban the very latest of late-term abortions and protect doctors from being forced to abort unborn babies, the New Mexico Senate voted Thursday to approve a bill to keep abortions up to birth legal in their state for years to come.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Democrats who control the legislature basically ignored Republicans’ questions and concerns before the vote. The final vote on state Senate Bill 10 was 27-15 with two Democrats joining Republicans in opposing it.

Sponsored by state Sen. Linda Lopez, D-Bernalillo, the pro-abortion legislation would repeal a 1969 New Mexico statute that prohibits abortions except in cases of rape, incest or threats to the mother’s life.

Alveda King: Margaret Sanger Wanted to “Weed Us Out.” Now 20 Million Black Babies Have Been Aborted

by Administrator

Black History Month this year follows on the heels of the deadliest month of the coronavirus pandemic. We have long known the virus is more often fatal to Blacks than Whites but new headlines scream of something insidious afoot as we begin to deal with the virus: Blacks are being vaccinated at lower rates than whites.

Here’s why, according to Kaiser Health News, which commissioned the study that prompted the flurry of news stories:

“African Americans are being left behind because of barriers stemming from structural racism, as well as a failure to address nuanced hesitancy and mistrust about the vaccines and the medical system overall.”

Assisted suicide is a hotly debated issue in 2021 even though many States legislatures have COVID-19 restrictions making communication with elected representatives difficult.


States that are currently debating the legalization of assisted suicide include: Arizona, Connecticut, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Nevada, New Mexico, and New York.

2021 is also the year that the assisted suicide lobby is trying to  expand current assisted suicide laws. Assisted suicide expansion bills are being debated in California, Hawaii, Vermont and Washington State.

The media wants you to think that there is a tidal wave of support for assisted suicide.

UK mom has one twin daughter with Down syndrome and one without… and life is beautiful

UK mom has one twin daughter with Down syndrome and one without… and life is beautiful

by Administrator

Women who receive a diagnosis of Down syndrome rarely receive the news in a positive way. For Nicola Bailey, a nurse from Sheffield in the United Kingdom, it was no different. When her daughter with Down syndrome was born, she said doctors apologized and acted as if someone had died.

Bailey gave birth prematurely to twin girls, Harper and Quinn. According to the Daily Mail, her water broke at 32 weeks, but doctors were able to keep the babies in her womb for another week. Bailey didn’t get a good look at either of her twin girls, as they were quickly rushed to the NICU.

Addiction almost killed him, but choosing life for his son changed everything

A man shared his fatherhood story on Twitter last week, noting that as a 22-year-old struggling with addiction, he was told that he should have his son aborted. But he and the baby’s mother refused, and he believes that baby saved his life.

“When I found out I was having a kid I was 22, addicted to drugs, in and out of rehab with no place to live,” he wrote. “Everyone said we should get an abortion. I’m really glad I didn’t listen.”

Two days after his son was born, the father entered rehab for the last time. He never went back.

An excellent article by Barbara Kay was published in the National Post today titled: Wider access to assisted dying in Canada will be catastrophic for the disabled. Kay is writing about Bill C-7, the bill to expand euthanasia in Canada, that will be voted-on in Canada’s Senate next week.

Kay explains that Bill C-7 is the government’s response to the Quebec Truchon court decision that struck down the requirement in the law that a person’s death be reasonably foreseeable to qualify for euthanasia. She explains how Bill C-7 goes far beyond Truchon.

‘Aid in dying’ is suicide, no matter how much its advocates try to redefine it

‘Aid in dying’ is suicide, no matter how much its advocates try to redefine it

Last month, news broke that Connecticut lawmakers are planning to introduce another assisted suicide bill, calling it a “priority.” Even though a similar bill previously failed in 2013 and disability groups continue to oppose assisted suicide, it seems the bill will move forward anyway — and assisted suicide advocacy groups are already mobilizing.

In an op-ed for the Connecticut Mirror, lawyer David Leven argued that assisted suicide is not only necessary but somehow different from “regular” suicide. His letter was written in response to disability activist Lisa Blumberg, who pointed out the numerous problems surrounding assisted suicide. Yet Leven’s response was to simply further obscure the issue by using deceptive pro-assisted suicide rhetoric.

Yesterday was the second time that I presented (by zoom) before a New Mexico legislative committee hearing concerning HB 47 the bill to legalize assisted suicide.

My concern with the legislative committee hearing was not the one minute given to every witness. Not much can be said in one minute but one minute applied to every witness.

My frustration related to the lies told by the “expert” witnesses, who had more time, concerning the bill.

1. The “expert” witnesses claimed that HB 47 is one of the tightest assisted suicide bills anywhere.

Renewing Our Resolve to End Human Trafficking: Lessons from the Past Two Decades

Renewing Our Resolve to End Human Trafficking: Lessons from the Past Two Decades

We commemorated two notable anniversaries in our collective fight against human trafficking in 2020: The 20th anniversary of the U.S. Trafficking Victims Protection Act (the law that sets the U.S. federal response to human trafficking), and the 20th anniversary of the Palermo Protocol (the U.N. Convention to prevent trafficking and punish human traffickers). This year brings us the 10th anniversary of the endorsement of the U.N. Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (an internationally recognized policy framework for countries and companies to prevent and mitigate human rights abuses in supply chains).

Together, these set the legal, operational, and moral standards of how we ultimately end the buying and selling of human beings – and these anniversaries should strengthen our resolve to do so.

New Abortion Fund Will Pay for Free Abortions to Kill More Babies

New Abortion Fund Will Pay for Free Abortions to Kill More Babies

by Administrator

In the past 48 years, approximately 62.5 million unborn babies have been killed in abortions across America.

Abortions are tragically common. They are the number one killer of human life in America. They are not health care or a necessity.

Yet, abortion activists frequently try to drum up support for their cause by claiming women need abortions and they face too many obstacles to access them.

A new organization in New Hampshire is based on this false claim, and it already has raised money to “help” by paying for unborn babies to be aborted.

The state NPR affiliate NHPR reported about the start-up of the Reproductive Freedom Fund of New Hampshire this month.

A Tennessee group that describes aborting unborn babies as “healthcare” received a $50,000 grant from a U.S. Catholic bishops’ agency in 2019, according to a new report from the Lepanto Institute.

The grant came from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, an anti-poverty agency of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The Lepanto Institute recently discovered that the Catholic agency gave multiple grants to groups that openly defy Catholic Church teachings about the sanctity of human life and family.

One of them is the Workers’ Dignity Project, a Nashville, Tennessee-based group that is listed as a “community partner” on Planned Parenthood’s 2017-2018 annual report.

An Idaho Senate committee advanced a pro-life bill Monday to protect unborn babies from abortion once their heartbeats are detectable.

Idaho News 2 reports the Senate State Affairs Committee voted along party lines to recommend the Fetal Heartbeat Preborn Child Protection Act (Senate Bill 1085) to the full state Senate.

Sponsored by state Sen. Patti Anne Lodge, R-Caldwell, and Rep. Steven Harris, R-Meridian, the bill would prohibit abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Exceptions would be allowed for rape, incest or threats to the mother’s life.

The Lewiston Tribune reports the bill would take effect only if a court in the U.S.

Vulnerable groups in Canada plead: Don’t expand assisted suicide

Vulnerable groups in Canada plead: Don’t expand assisted suicide

by Administrator

Debate continues to rage around Canada’s Bill C-7, which would greatly expand assisted suicide. Under this bill, euthanasia would be allowed for people whose deaths are not “reasonably foreseeable,” essentially allowing someone to choose to die because of a disability. Lawmakers are also debating whether or not to allow people to opt for assisted suicide solely due to mental illness. Yet the groups who are most vulnerable to potential abuses under this bill are urging lawmakers to vote against it.

Disability rights groups have been vocal in their opposition to C-7, rightly pointing out how it will be dangerous for Canadians with disabilities.

An Indiana bill that would inform women about the life-saving abortion pill reversal process passed a state House committee Monday.

Lawmakers approved state House Bill 1577 in a 9-3 vote with bipartisan support, moving the pro-life bill to the full state House for consideration.

Sponsored by state Rep. Peggy Mayfield, R-Martinsville, the bill would require abortion facilities to inform women about the abortion pill reversal procedure, which can reverse the effects of a drug-induced abortion and may save their unborn baby’s life. It also would require abortion facilities to give women a photo of their unborn baby’s ultrasound image at least 18 hours before the abortion.

One in four students are “threatened, abused, alarmed or distressed” for being pro-life at university, a shocking new survey has revealed. Michael Robinson, SPUC Director of Communications, said: “Pro-life students are routinely subject to discrimination and mistreatment solely because they uphold the humanity and worth of unborn children. It is vital that steps are taken to ensure that pro-life students are not silenced and can speak out about pro-life issues.”

The survey, conducted by the Alliance of Pro-life Students (APS), asked for the views and experiences of over 200 students at university in the UK.

The poll found that:

  • Over 70% of students faced situations in lectures or seminars where they felt “unable to speak” about their views.

Carolyn Frandsen, programming coordinator for Support After Abortion, knows the pain of abortion firsthand. In a video, she shared her story of having an abortion and dealing with the aftermath in her life.

After growing up in a broken home, Frandsen entered her teen years craving “acceptance” and said she quickly became a part of “the wrong crowd, the people that I definitely shouldn’t have been hanging out with, the partiers.” She recalled, “I enjoyed being the center of attention… I realized that I could get attention and acceptance with my body… So boys became my main concern. My goal was just to feel loved.”

Feminists Now Call Abortion Drugs “Missed Period Pills” to Make Killing Babies Sound Better

Feminists Now Call Abortion Drugs “Missed Period Pills” to Make Killing Babies Sound Better

by Administrator

Abortion proponents obliquely touting chemical abortion pills as an answer to late menstruation is yet another ploy to push abortion at the expense of women’s health.

“Missed period” remedies as a euphemism for abortifacient drugs or herbal concoctions is nothing new. However, a study recently published in the journal Contraception and accompanying articles in the New York Times and Ms. Magazine covering the study have drawn more public attention to the idea of a “missed period pill” (MPP) to “fix” a late period.

Make no mistake, this fix is an abortifacient.

According to the Contraception article, the “missed period pill” would be a uterine evacuation drug or combination of drugs, like mifepristone and misoprostol (which are the two main drugs used in a medical abortion procedure).

Women pregnant from rape: Don’t use us as an ‘argument for abortion’

Women pregnant from rape: Don’t use us as an ‘argument for abortion’

by Administrator

According to a recent Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll, 40% of Americans who consider themselves pro-life think abortion should be legal in cases of rape, incest, or risk to the mother’s life. However, being pro-life means supporting the right to life for all preborn babies to be born. Pro-life laws are created to protect preborn lives from abortion. Adding exceptions to that protection based on the circumstances of a child’s conception is discriminatory and inhumane.

Like rape, abortion is an act of violence that causes trauma. Abortion is so traumatic that it has been associated with an increased risk of depression, alcohol and drug use, and suicide.

Soon after passing a law to protect newborns from infanticide, South Dakota lawmakers moved forward with another pro-life bill Wednesday that would ban discriminatory abortions on unborn babies with Down syndrome.

The Argus Leader reports pro-life House Bill 1110 received unanimous support Wednesday during a House State Affairs Committee hearing.

Introduced by Gov. Kristi Noem, the legislation would prohibit abortionists from knowingly aborting an unborn baby because the baby has or may have Down syndrome.

The governor said she wants to protect every unborn baby from abortion, but the U.S. Supreme Court prohibits states from doing so under Roe v.
