Joe Biden Fires Father of Teen With Down Syndrome Because He’s Pro-Life

Joe Biden Fires Father of Teen With Down Syndrome Because He’s Pro-Life

by Administrator

In a stunning move, President Joe Biden has fired the father of a teen with Down syndrome from a national disability council.

As Fox News reported, the decision has been heartbreaking for Kurt Kondrich’s 18-year-old daughter, Chloe.

President Donald Trump appointed Kurt to a two-year position with the Presidential Commission for Persons with Disabilities in 2020.

In an unprecedented action, President Biden has been terminating Trump-appointed Presidential advisory council members. He is violating a long tradition of permitting council appointees to complete their terms. The councils are non-partisan and play an advisory role.

Couple Adopts Two Sets of Twins to Keep The Family Together: We’re “Spreading the Love”

by Administrator

Empty nest couple Karen and Tobias Thompson have a full house again.

The Cincinnati, Ohio couple sacrificed their time and opened up their home to adopt two sets of twins on Sept. 9 – biological half siblings who were separated in the foster system, Fox News reports.

Karen Thompson, 55, said caring for Wilnya and William, who are 14, and Shania and Sharleathea, who are 9, has been a challenge. But after raising seven children, she said she and her husband decided that they could be “spreading the love” to the twins, too.

“We had an empty house, an empty nest, and then we ended up with the four,” she told Fox News.

Apple Will Pay Its Texas Employees to Kill Their Babies in Abortions in Other States

Apple Will Pay Its Texas Employees to Kill Their Babies in Abortions in Other States

The technology company Apple told its Texas employees Friday that it will pay for them to abort their unborn babies in other states now that the heartbeat law is in effect.

ABC 7 News reports Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company’s medical insurance plan will cover out-of-state abortion costs for employees in Texas.

He made the statement during an employees-only meeting; The New York Times obtained a recording of the meeting and reported about it over the weekend. Tech Crunch and other news outlets confirmed the statement with Apple.

In recent weeks, a number of politically left companies have condemned the Texas pro-life law, which may save as many as 100 unborn babies from abortion every day.

Half of prominent Texas abortion chain’s abortionists quit due to Heartbeat Act

Nine out of 17 abortion providers on staff with Whole Woman’s Health abortion chain in Texas quit when the Heartbeat Act went into effect on September 1, according to The Guardian.

As is common in many states, the “vast majority” of Whole Woman’s Health abortion providers were ‘circuit rider’ abortionists who did not reside in Texas, hailing instead from different parts of the country. For most of them, the stakes simply became too high to continue working in Texas.

Whole Woman’s Health’s CEO and founder, Amy Hagstrom Miller, lamented that “Just because we are complying with SB8 doesn’t stop extremists from saying that we are defying SB8.

The work of pro-life sidewalk counselors cannot be overstated. Their presence outside of abortion facilities, their prayers, and their hands-on approach to encountering abortion-minded mothers and putting them in touch with alternatives have changed many minds over the years and saved the lives of babies all over the world.

Here are just three stories that demonstrate how sidewalk counselors have made a difference in the lives of families. 

Kiesy and Jocelyn 

A couple’s encounter with sidewalk counselors outside the Lovejoy Surgical Center in Portland, Oregon, saved the life of baby Sebastian.

Kiesy and Jocelyn Hernandez had driven over 400 miles to have an abortion.

New Hampshire Executive Council votes to strip public funding from abortion providers

New Hampshire Executive Council votes to strip public funding from abortion providers

by Administrator

New Hampshire’s Executive Council voted 4-1 last Wednesday to reject three contracts providing public funding to abortion providers across the state, citing concerns over compliance with a new state law requiring financial separation of abortion and family planning services at facilities that receive taxpayer dollars.

The three abortion providers that were denied the contracts include Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, Equality Health Center, and Lovering Health Center. In total, the contracts were valued at around $640,000. Funds were allocated to several reproductive health facilities that do not offer abortions. 

The state law “prohibits the distribution of state funds awarded by the department of health and human services to a reproductive health care facility for provision of abortion services.”

Planned Parenthood CEO: Pro-Life Americans are “Cruel” Because They Oppose Abortion

Planned Parenthood CEO: Pro-Life Americans are “Cruel” Because They Oppose Abortion

by Administrator

MSNBC host Craig Melvin brought on Planned Parenthood president Alexis McGill Johnson on Tuesday to address a “Missouri’s restrictive abortion law.” He goaded her to “help folks understand” why anyone would oppose abortion. She made her usual argument that the “cruelty” by pro-lifers is “the point.” The people who prevent the killing of babies are the “cruel” ones.

Melvin said the Missouri law, passed in 2019, “bans abortions at or around the eighth week of pregnancy, it has no exception for rape, no exception for incest. It also, it also bans abortions based on Down Syndrome diagnosis.” In other words, no killing the babies with disabilities.

And Then There Were None, the only organization in the nation to actively assist people who work in the abortion industry to leave, to find new jobs, and to obtain healing from the horrific things they saw and participated in, held their first ever “Quitters Ball” in Dallas, Texas this past weekend honoring these former workers, affectionately called “quitters” by the ministry.

“Never before has this many former abortion workers been in the same room together and on the side of life,” said Abby Johnson. “Abortion workers are overlooked in the national conversation on abortion, yet they are just like us, people who went to work trying to support their families and wanting to help others.

‘A chilling silence’: The devastating effects of euthanasia and abortion on its practitioners

‘A chilling silence’: The devastating effects of euthanasia and abortion on its practitioners

by Administrator

When people decide to go into the field of health care, it’s often with the goal of saving lives — not taking them. Yet sometimes, the job of saving lives is subverted, especially when abortion and euthanasia — acts of clear killing — are touted as health care. Some workers have said they thought they were going to be helping people, only to realize too late the tragic truth.

And while things like abortion and euthanasia affect women and the families left behind, the reality is that the act of killing affects health care providers, too.

Euthanasia causes “deep distress”

Across the globe, euthanasia has been rapidly growing in popularity.

A Kentucky family is praising God for the safe arrival of their conjoined twins, Lakelyn and Laylie, after doctors warned that the girls may not survive.

The Louisville, Kentucky twins were born Sept. 1 after 32 weeks of pregnancy, and, last week, they grew well enough to leave the hospital, according to a Facebook page set up to share the twins’ journey.

WLKY reports Logan and Charla Cook, of Louisville, Kentucky, hoped and prayed for a miracle when they learned that they were expecting conjoined twins.

“I honestly pray for God just to perform some type of miracle,” Charla told the news outlet.

Abortion is Legal in Spain But Most Doctors Refuse to Kill Babies

by Administrator

When Mexico passed its law decriminalizing abortion,  it took the country by surprise. What also caught the secular press by surprise is that other nation  that as had legalized abortions were having difficult finding doctors willing to perform them.

Nicholas  Casey of the New York Times took the opportunity to see how widespread this pattern was. He began with Spain.

He focused on Dr. Mercedes Sobreviela, who said with respect to abortion, the “right decision” for a woman is “always the one she wants.”

“But as a physician in Spain, Sobreviela believes she has the right to choose as well, and she has chosen not to perform abortions,”he wrote.

Actress Uma Thurman Celebrates Killing Her Baby in an Abortion: “I Have No Regrets”

by Administrator

Actress Uma Thurman revealed for the first time Tuesday that she aborted her unborn baby when she was a young adult just beginning her career.

Though Thurman insisted that she has “no regrets,” her abortion story is full of pain and trauma. She admitted that, after more than three decades, it “saddens me even now.”

The 51-year-old actress (“Pulp Fiction,” “Les Misérables”) wrote about her abortion in an op-ed at the Washington Post. She also criticized the new Texas heartbeat law, which is saving as many as 100 babies and mothers from pain, regret and death every day.

“This law is yet another discriminatory tool against those who are economically disadvantaged, and often, indeed, against their partners,” Thurman wrote.

Malcolm Gladwell, Talking to Strangers; What We Should Know About Talking to People We Don’t Know, Little, Brown and Company, 2019 

In 2016, in small town Texas, Officer Brian Encinia pulled over a young black woman, Sandra Bland, for a minor traffic infraction. The interaction becomes heated and Sandra is incarcerated. Three days later, she is dead in her jail-cell.

Malcolm Gladwell examines this case in light of ways we commonly mis-interpret strangers.

German monument to the euthanasia victims

By Mark Sutherland

“Your son was released from a severe and incurable disease.”

“He died quickly and without pain. Considering his serious and incurable illness, death meant relief for him.”

“Considering her severe and incurable illness, life was agony for the deceased. You must therefore understand her death as deliverance.” [1]

These short sentences contrast with the enormity of the suffering of the incurably sick. They are typical of a narrative which makes it hard to understand why anyone could oppose the euthanasia bill to be tabled in the New South Wales Parliament later this year, a narrative which damns its opponents as lacking in compassion.

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

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”

“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.

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.

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:

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.”
