Nebraska lawmakers pass ban on dismemberment abortions

UPDATE, 8/13/20: Today, Nebraska lawmakers passed a ban on dismemberment D&E abortions by a vote of 33-8. Republican Governor Pete Ricketts is expected to sign the bill into law.

8/11/20: Near the end of July, pro-abortion Nebraska lawmakers blocked a vote on a bill to ban dismemberment (D&E) abortions. As reported by Live Action News, “While Senator Suzanne Geist (R), the sponsor of LB 814, appears to have the support of the majority of Senators, debate on the bill will only open again if she can secure 33 votes for a super-majority—a task that may be hard to do.”

True Compassion: Whose Life Matters?

True Compassion: Whose Life Matters?

I try very hard not to let my emotions get the best of me, but there are those rare occasions when my ire is raised, and I cannot contain my outrage. Such a moment occurred a few days ago when a colleague in Oceania shared a story that involved a young pregnant woman who is aggressively pressured by medical staff to abort her innocent baby.

Health care officials diagnosed the pre-born baby with Down syndrome and life-threatening heart and kidney problems. They did not present the mother, whose life some would define as tragic, with life-supporting options or alternatives for her baby.

Kamala Harris Tried to Put Pro-Lifers in Jail Who Exposed Planned Parenthood Selling Baby Parts

Kamala Harris Tried to Put Pro-Lifers in Jail Who Exposed Planned Parenthood Selling Baby Parts

Five years ago, it was former California attorney general Kamala Harris (now senator and VP candidate) who launched the investigation into the work of Sandra Merritt and David Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, after these citizen journalists discovered and produced videos documenting Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of aborted baby body parts.

Under California law, conversations that “may be overheard” are, by definition, not “confidential” and can be recorded without consent. The recorded abortionists admitted under oath that their conversations with Merritt and Daleiden could be overheard by others in the public spaces where they were recorded, and they took no steps to prevent others from overhearing their candid discussion of what Planned Parenthood does behind closed doors.

Pro-Abortion Group Calls Killing Babies in Abortions a “Core American Value”

Pro-Abortion Group Calls Killing Babies in Abortions a “Core American Value”

by Administrator

On Thursday, Glamour magazine ran an excerpt of the death lobby’s latest pro-abortion book, The Lie That Binds, written by NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue (pictured) and Research Director Ellie Langford.

In the piece, the NARAL gals try to make the case that abortion is so popular, it’s crazy that it’s even a political issue:

…The overwhelming majority of Americans support—and always have supported—maintaining the legal right to abortion. Right now that support is at an all-time high of 77%… Protecting reproductive freedom is a winning issue with the American public. So why are we in the midst of an all-out assault on reproductive freedom?

Joe Biden Says Nuns Inspired Presidential Bid, But He Wants to Force Them to Fund Abortions

Joe Biden Says Nuns Inspired Presidential Bid, But He Wants to Force Them to Fund Abortions

Joe Biden praised a group of nuns for being his inspiration in a new campaign video Sunday after he promised to overturn a religious freedom rule that President Donald Trump enacted to protect nuns and other religious individuals.

Biden, the presumed Democratic presidential nominee, claims to be a devout Catholic and a “man of faith,” but he supports abortion on demand and wants to force taxpayers to pay for it. Recently, he vowed to end Trump’s religious freedom rule for nuns and others who oppose an Obamacare mandate that requires them to fund contraception that may cause abortions.

According to the Catholic News Agency, the Democratic National Convention portrayed Biden as a faithful Catholic in a short video Aug.

Doctors in Belgium Push for Abortion and Infanticide to Kill Every Single Disabled Baby

Doctors in Belgium Push for Abortion and Infanticide to Kill Every Single Disabled Baby

German doctors were hanged at Nuremberg for killing disabled infants — part of the medical Holocaust.

That same act — killing a baby because he or she is disabled or terminally ill — is now accepted with a shrug in the Netherlands under a bureaucratic infanticide checklist known as the Groningen Protocol — which was published with respect in New England Journal of Medicine.

And a new study of Belgian neonatologists and associated medical professionals finds that huge majorities support the abortion of viable fetuses and active infanticide if the baby has a serious, but non-fatal disability.

First, abortion. From the study:

Late TOP [termination of pregnancy] is highly accepted in both lethal foetal conditions (100%) and serious (but not lethal) foetal conditions (95.6%).

Joe Biden’s Supreme Court Picks Would Add to 62 Million Babies Killed in Abortion

Joe Biden’s Supreme Court Picks Would Add to 62 Million Babies Killed in Abortion

It’s a near certainty that Americans would see millions more babies being aborted if Joe Biden is elected president.

The pro-abortion Democrat has promised to “codify” Roe v. Wade into federal law and force taxpayers to fund elective abortions – sure ways to add to the already devastating abortion total.

If Biden has the chance to nominate U.S. Supreme Court justices — and the president likely will get to nominate one or two in the coming four years – he is expected to choose people who will uphold abortion on demand as the law of the land for years to come.

100 Democrat Politicians Slam Joe Biden’s “Extreme” Abortion Advocacy

100 Democrat Politicians Slam Joe Biden’s “Extreme” Abortion Advocacy

Pro-life Democratic politicians are pushing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to adopt more moderate stances on abortion heading into the presidential election.

Over 100 past and present Democratic politicians joined in sending a letter to the DNC Platform Committee on Friday calling on Biden, his vice presidential pick Sen. Kamala Harris, and the Democratic Party to make the platform more welcoming to both pro-life Democratic voters and pro-life Independent voters.

“We are concerned that many Democratic leaders support policies on abortion that are radically out of line with public opinion,” the letter says, emphasizing that the Democratic Party is “alienating voters” due to radical abortion policy.

President Trump Fought to Protect Pro-Life Doctors, Stop Research With Aborted Baby Parts

President Trump Fought to Protect Pro-Life Doctors, Stop Research With Aborted Baby Parts

The work being carried out by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) in the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) is arguably one of the biggest accomplishments of the Trump administration. This is not surprising as the department is full of stalwart conservatives and pro-lifers who not only believe in the work they are doing, but also believe that the government has an important role to play in protecting the constitutional rights of individuals.

However, bureaucratic and political delays are interfering with the efficacy of HHS. When it came to banning the use of human fetal tissue for experiments, restricting funding for abortion entities, or protecting the rights of health care professionals from having to violate their personal beliefs, the White House had to intervene.

Catholic bishops in Colorado and Kansas are urging Christians to dedicate time each day in August to pray for an end to the slaughter of unborn babies in abortions.

According to the Church Militant, the call to action came from Archbishop Samuel Aquila of Denver and Bishop Carl Kemme of Wichita in the midst of a society troubled by abortion, anti-Catholic violence, the coronavirus, the upcoming presidential election and more.

On July 22, Kemme announced the prayer campaign in the midst of a wave of vandalism and other hate crimes at Catholic churches and monuments across the U.S.,

A “disturbing” new research paper has revealed how 94 percent of Belgian doctors support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

Michael Robinson, SPUC Director of Communications said: “It is deeply disturbing that medical professionals who should protect and value each human life hold these shocking beliefs.”

The research article surveyed the attitudes of healthcare professionals in Belgium towards the ‘termination of pregnancy at viable stage.’

93.6% of physicians in Flanders region, Belgium, surveyed “agree that in the event of a serious (non-lethal) neonatal condition, administering drugs with the explicit intention to end neonatal life is acceptable.”

Life-Saving Partnerships

Outside of Planned Parenthood during the 40 Days for Life 365 campaign, Rachel Guy met Joyce and Stephen as they were leaving their appointment. Joyce and Stephen were 6 weeks pregnant and were seeking more information about abortion. “You will never regret choosing life,” Rachel shared with them.

In the days to follow, Rachel followed up with the couple and encouraged them to educate themselves further by making an appointment at The HOPE Center. “We knew the importance of them seeing the ultrasound,” Rachel said. A few weeks later, the couple came into The HOPE Center for their first ultrasound. “The baby, MY BABY is really moving around,” Joyce said.

Planned Parenthood’s New York chapter Disavows Founder Margaret Sanger Over Racist Eugenics

For decades, pro-life activists pointed out Sanger’s racism, but in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement, Planned Parenthood said it is addressing the problem. The national organization has defended Sanger in the past, claiming she was well-intentioned in her outreach to Black communities.

Sanger launched the Negro Project, in 1939, which was aimed at “helping Negroes to control their birthrate,” while advocating for a federal “population bureau” to police reproduction. She worked with Black leaders like W.E.B DuBois and Mary McLeod Bethune, but also addressed the women’s auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in 1926. Planned Parenthood stated it strongly disagrees with Sanger’s decision to speak to an organization that spreads hatred.… Read More “Planned Parenthood’s New York chapter Disavows Founder Margaret Sanger Over Racist Eugenics”

Planned Parenthood ‘steeped in white supremacy,’ employees, supporters charge

Life is Precious – and Worth Fighting For

Copyright LaurenW

I got the following story from Facebook from old friends I used to work with in Ohio. When I saw this beautiful picture of Lauren and her baby Carson, I was inspired to share her story on our website and newsletter. 

Background: The first sign of trouble in Lauren’s pregnancy was her water breaking at 22 weeks. She was admitted into Akron City Hospital immediately, and spent 81 days in the hospital before going into labor. Carson was born on April 28, 6 1/2 weeks early. Since Carson was still at serious risk, Lauren was moved to an operating room next to NICU for the delivery.… Read More “Life is Precious – and Worth Fighting For”

DAY 10: Shortage of abortion doctors

image

Abortion is the shame of the medical community.

That is evident with the increasing shortage of doctors willing to do an abortion, a mounting problem for the abortion industry.

The shortage of abortionists is often revealed during a 40 Days for Life campaign. Our prayer presence causes Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry to change their schedules and even cancel abortion days.

40 Days for Life volunteers are increasingly reporting that when they show up to pray on abortion day NO abortions are being done!

“We could speculate all day,” wrote Heather and Laurie. “[But] no matter the reason, there were no abortions in Fort Pierce, Florida this morning–and there are always abortions on Saturday mornings.

Georgia Senators Targeting the Elderly with Profoundly Immoral New Bill – The Resurgent

After suffering a crushing defeat when they tried to oppose the Heartbeat Bill last year; Senator Steve Henson, Senator Nan Orrock, and their pro-death supporters took the year to lick their wounds and have returned this legislative session with a new targeted attack on the innocent and most vulnerable among us – Senate Bill 291, the “Georgia Death with Dignity Act“.

There are attempts to introduce a version of this same initiative every few years, each with a different, catchy, and seemingly altruistic name – meant to ignite a sense of compassion and support from those who don’t realize that their only goal is to continue to attack and erode the value of human life, and our morals along with it.
