Thinking you are holier than others is form of self-worship, pope says

by Administrator

VATICAN CITY (CNS) — “Spiritual arrogance” — thinking one is holier or better than others — is a temptation everyone faces and is a form of self-worship, Pope Francis said.

“Where there is too much ‘I,’ there is too little God,” the pope told an estimated 35,000 people gathered in St. Peter’s Square Oct. 23 for the recitation of the Angelus prayer.

Commenting on the Gospel parable about the Pharisee and the tax collector, the pope said the lesson Jesus was trying to teach was that to approach God, people must look inside themselves and be aware of their own needs and failings.

Planned Parenthood offers online courses on at-home abortions

Planned Parenthood offers online courses on at-home abortions

by Administrator

(C-Fam) The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) recently launched an online course on the use of abortion pills. The course is based on guidance from the World Health Organization and in collaboration with a website that promotes medication abortion even where it is illegal.

The IPPF course was launched on the website HowToUseAbortionPill.org, run by anonymous “dedicated individuals” and affiliated with an unnamed U.S.-based nonprofit. HowToUseAbortionPill.org demonstrates the owners’ disregard for national laws by advising women to dispose of “anything recognizable” if they live in a country where abortion is illegal or restricted.

The site not only keeps its ownership secret, it encourages potentially dangerous and illegal drug activity, and claims credibility from the World Health Organization, citing the WHO’s extreme abortion guidance.

Georgia Fights in Court to Defend Heartbeat Law Banning Abortions

Georgia Fights in Court to Defend Heartbeat Law Banning Abortions

On Monday, in the first of two scheduled days set aside to hear oral arguments over Georgia’s Heartbeat Law, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney listened as pro-abortionists argued the law violates the Georgia Constitution’s right to privacy and liberty by “forcing pregnancy and childbirth upon countless Georgians.”

By contrast, in a court filing, the state attorney general’s office said  Georgia’s privacy protections do not extend to abortion because it affects another “human life.”

“There is a third party involved,” Georgia Solicitor General Stephen Petrany told McBurney yesterday.

The 2019 law is currently being enforced, thanks to a July ruling from the 11th U.S.

Bowling Green, Ohio Measure Would Promote Abortion, Attack Pregnancy Centers

Bowling Green, Ohio Measure Would Promote Abortion, Attack Pregnancy Centers

Today, Ohio Right to Life (ORTL) issued a letter to Bowling Green City Council urging them to vote down Proposed Ordinance 9031 that would make mothers seeking an abortion a “protected class.” In Ohio Right to Life’s letter, they stated that as written, the amendment violates free speech protected by the First Amendment, and that if passed by the Council, the ordinance will be challenged in court by many organizations, including ORTL.

The ordinance was first introduced on October 3rd. In the second reading of the ordinance on October 17th, over 150 individuals from the area came to speak out against it.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron: “There is No Right to Abortion”

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron: “There is No Right to Abortion”

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade affirms what we all have known—that the U.S. Constitution says nothing about the right to an abortion and that abortion policy must be left to the states. As lawmakers across the country undertake the hard work of legislating in this area, it is inevitable that legal challenges to pro-life laws will arise. That is currently happening in Kentucky. But my office is opposing any judicial action that would create a Kentucky version of Roe.

As a starting point, there is no right to an abortion in the Commonwealth’s constitution. When courts interpret that document, they look to the express language.

Mom Sues Planned Parenthood After Giving Birth to Dead 30-Week-Old Baby in a Toilet

Mom Sues Planned Parenthood After Giving Birth to Dead 30-Week-Old Baby in a Toilet

A traumatized young mother is suing Planned Parenthood after giving birth to her late-term unborn baby in a toilet, saying she never would have aborted her son if the abortion chain had provided her with basic medical care, such as a physical exam or an ultrasound.

Live Action News first reported about the lawsuit this week from the young New York woman, “Jane Doe.” According to the lawsuit, her baby, a son referred to by the initials J.T., died as a result of the abortion; he was nearly full term, between 30 weeks and 36 weeks of pregnancy.

Doe said Planned Parenthood abortionist Meera Shah estimated she was only about six weeks of pregnancy.

Democrat Wants 150 New Abortion Centers to Kill More Babies in Abortions

Democrat Wants 150 New Abortion Centers to Kill More Babies in Abortions

Pennsylvania pro-life leaders are calling out a ridiculous new pledge from a Democrat lawmaker that calls for adding what amounts to more than 150 new abortion facilities across the state.

The “pledge to protect and expand abortion” comes from state Rep. Elizabeth Fielder, D-Philadelphia, and asks lawmakers to join her in working to expand abortion facilities, support taxpayer-funded abortions, end parental consent laws and more, according to the Pennsylvania Family Institute.

“Pennsylvania voters are now realizing just how extreme many Democrat politicians are in pushing abortion — even at the expense women’s health,” organization president Michael Geer said in a statement.

A traumatic abortion experience leads to a life dedicated to pro-life ministry

by Administrator

At age 24, Linda Fernandez socialized with friends for whom the college experience was about getting drunk, being promiscuous, and finding comfort from liaisons with men. This way of life was attractive to Fernandez who always tried hard to win love from those around her as a way to deal with a traumatic childhood experience.

Fernandez told Live Action News, “I was so young, just six years old at the time this [trauma] happened. I couldn’t tell anyone about it, so all my life I tried to take charge and be rebellious. It was a way to handle my secret shame.”

MSNBC Host Tiffany Cross: Black Republicans are Not “Voices of Color”

MSNBC host Tiffany Cross attacked minority Republican candidates Saturday morning, claiming they were “not voices of color.”

“Despite the fact the GOP’s racist rhetoric has not slowed at all, they have begun hyping up, get this, their ‘diverse’ candidates,” Cross said while making air quotes with her hands. “According to numbers provided by the National Republican Congressional Committee, 80 Republican incumbents or candidates on the ballot next month are women, 33 and Latino, 28 are black, 13 are Asian and three are native Americans.”

Poll Shows Americans Want Lower Inflation, Secure Borders and Less Crime. Joe Biden Wants More Abortions

Poll Shows Americans Want Lower Inflation, Secure Borders and Less Crime. Joe Biden Wants More Abortions

Another new poll reflects just how out of touch Joe Biden and Democrat leaders are with the American people.

While Americans grow increasingly concerned about inflation, crime and secure borders, Biden and Democrat candidates have been prioritizing abortion on demand leading up to the November election.

According to Newsweek, a new poll from Monmouth University found that Americans want politicians to prioritize inflation (46 percent), secure elections (38 percent), crime (37 percent), immigration (34 percent) and jobs/unemployment (32 percent).

Abortion came in at number six on the list (30 percent), down in Americans’ priorities compared to September polling, the report noted.

Biden indicates support for establishment of federal abortion fund

by Administrator

(National Review) President Biden revealed in a recent interview that he supports the establishment of a federal fund to cover costs associated with abortion, including time off work, travel, and childcare.

Biden expressed support for the radical idea for the first time during a roundtable panel discussion with NowThis that was recorded on Tuesday and is slated to air over the weekend. The answer was delivered in response to a question from a 26-year-old medical student, Danielle Mathisen, who pointed to growing commitments across the corporate world to support women procuring abortions and suggested the federal government should follow suit.

Vatican Advisor: It’s Okay to Kill Babies in Abortions Until They Feel Pain

Vatican Advisor: It’s Okay to Kill Babies in Abortions Until They Feel Pain

Another appointee of Pope Francis to the Pontifical Academy for Life was caught advocating for the killing of unborn babies in abortions this month.

The National Catholic Register reports Roberto Dell’Oro, a member of the Pontifical Academy for Life, said abortions should be legal until an unborn baby is capable of feeling pain during a public event Oct. 12 at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

Dell’Oro, a bioethicist at Loyola, also criticized the U.S. Supreme Court for overturning Roe v. Wade in its Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health ruling in June.

The news comes amid criticism about Pope Francis appointing academics who oppose church teachings about the sanctity of human life to an institution dedicated to defending it.

People in These Five States Will Vote on Whether Unborn Babies Live or Die, Vote Pro-Life

People in These Five States Will Vote on Whether Unborn Babies Live or Die, Vote Pro-Life

Babies’ right to life could be protected or completely stripped away on the ballot in five states this November.

Voters in California, Montana, Michigan, Vermont and Kentucky all will consider abortion-related state ballot measures that will determine the future of rights and protections for babies in the womb for many years to come.

With the exception of Montana, all of the ballot measures are state constitutional amendments that would make it clear if an abortion is a “right.”

In Kentucky, voters will consider the pro-life Amendment 2, which would add language to the Kentucky Constitution stating that aborting unborn babies is not a right and taxpayers should not be forced to pay for abortions.

Pentagon will pay for abortion travel of military members and dependents

by Administrator

The Pentagon will be paying travel expenses for military members and their dependents to get abortions if they live in a state with pro-life laws.

According to a new memorandum, entitled “Ensuring Access to Reproductive Health Care,” Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that the overturning of Roe v. Wade leading to the enactment of protections for preborn babies in some states will cause “readiness, recruiting, and retention implications” for the U.S. military. For Austin, the fact that service members frequently travel or move to such locations and could be unable to obtain abortions easily – or have to pay out of pocket for travel to obtain abortions – is an “emergency.”

Pro-Life Woman Demands Apology After Democrats Use Her Image to Promote Killing Unborn Babies

Pro-Life Woman Demands Apology After Democrats Use Her Image to Promote Killing Unborn Babies

Macy Petty felt shocked when she saw an image of herself crying outside the U.S. Supreme Court in an ad promoting a pro-abortion constitutional amendment in California.

The ad, which Hillary Clinton shared Tuesday on Twitter, makes it appear as though Petty was upset that the Supreme Court had overturned Roe v. Wade.

Actually, she was crying tears of joy.

Now, Petty, a young pro-life advocate, is demanding an apology from Clinton and Gov. Gavin Newsom and urging Californians to vote no on Proposition 1 in November.

“It is awful. They are totally manipulating those emotions and trying to promote the killing of innocent children because of my tears,” she told the California Family Council this week.

Harvard University Planned Huge Event to Celebrate 50 Years of Roe, Dobbs Forced Cancellation

Harvard University’s Schlesinger Library is changing up plans for an exhibit marking the 50th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, opting instead for a “meditation on what does it mean that Roe has gone,” the Harvard Gazette reported Thursday.

The new exhibit, called “The Age of Roe: The Past, Present, and Future of Abortion in America” will open Oct. 24 and will chronicle the history of abortion in America from the pre-Roe era to today.

“Obviously, we had to adjust a bit to account for the fact that the age of Roe, as the exhibit says, is over,” said Mary Ziegler, a professor UC Davis School of Law and the exhibit’s curator.

Abortion industry wants non-physicians to commit abortions in North Carolina

by Administrator

The abortion industry is mobilizing in an effort to allow non-physicians to commit abortions in North Carolina.

Planned Parenthood South Atlantic filed a request on Monday asking that the law requiring only physicians be allowed to dispense abortion pills be blocked. In a press release from the ACLU, the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade was described as having triggered a “public health crisis” — and as abortion is still legal in North Carolina, the ACLU claimed that countless women are traveling there to undergo abortions, allegedly making it difficult for local women to undergo the procedures. The solution, in their opinion, is to allow non-physicians to commit abortions as well.
