Planned Parenthood Calls Kamala Harris a “Champion” for Killing Babies in Abortions

by Administrator

Vice-presidential debates are often the political equivalent of a halftime show at a sporting event: You might watch them, but they aren’t the main spectacle. This year’s debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris feels different, especially in the wake of President Trump’s hospitalization and enduring worries about 77-year-old Biden’s fitness. Voters want to know who Harris is, and where she stands on crucial issues such as abortion and the Supreme Court.

For pro-life voters, this debate is key, as Joe Biden has been avoiding discussion of abortion. Once upon a time, he was a pro-life politician. He even partnered with March for Life to lobby for a Human Life Amendment banning all abortions.

Supporting Birth Mothers in Their Journey of Unexpected Pregnancy

Regardless of the birth mother’s choice, meeting her where she is, and with the heart of Jesus, can be transformative. As a woman whose life has been radically changed by adoption and the hope of the gospel, it is a tremendous privilege to walk with, encourage, and equip birth mothers.

Loving Birth Mothers

I was adopted as an infant into an incredible Christian family. My adoptive parents loved my brother and me and honored my birth mother and birth father. My mom had a huge heart for my birth mother, and that love was contagious! Now, as an adult, I have the privilege of passing on that same contagious and Christ-like love to others.

Vice President Mike Pence: “I’m Pro-Life, I Don’t Apologize for It”

by Administrator

During tonight’s presidential debate with Kamala Harris, Vice President Mike Pence was not backing down in any way, shape or form, from his pro-life position against killing babies in abortions.

Pence said, “I’m pro-life. I don’t apologize for it.”

“I couldn’t be more proud to serve as vice president to a president who stands without apology for the sanctity of human life,” he said.

Pence went after Harris and Joe Biden for supporting abortion on demand and taxpayer funded abortions – adding that they support abortions and abortion funding “up until the moment of birth.”

A Conversation Between a Human Trafficking Survivor and Her Lawyer

Taushia Chacon is an empowered woman and devoted mother. She is also a sex trafficking survivor. In August 2020, her trafficker was sentenced to life in prison and ordered to pay almost $2 million in restitution and fines after being convicted on 13 counts of human trafficking-related charges. Justice has been served, but Taushia’s recovery endures.

Sarah Byrne leads Moore & Van Allen’s Human Trafficking Pro Bono Project in Charlotte, North Carolina. Taushia was referred to Sarah for legal services in 2017 after reporting her victimization to law enforcement. Over the years, the two women have discussed the need to raise awareness about survivor legal needs in order to ensure success in both the criminal process and, more importantly, in survivor well-being.

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

by Administrator

Did Kamala Harris use her political power as California attorney general to unfairly prosecute a pro-life advocate as a favor to Planned Parenthood? And would she do it again if elected vice president of the United States?

A new video from the Center for Medical Progress raised questions about Harris’s actions Tuesday ahead of the first vice presidential debate.

Harris is a U.S. Senator from California and former state attorney general. She also is Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate on the Democrat ticket.

The Washington Times reports the new video shows evidence of Harris following Planned Parenthood’s orders when her office raided the home of undercover pro-life journalist David Daleiden in 2016.

Coalition of Care: One Family’s Journey

Ben & Jessica are a married couple who attend Crossroads Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 2012, they heard their church was hosting a Foster Care Information Session. The church partnered with Coalition of Care, a nonprofit ministry serving as a bridge between local churches and vulnerable children in southwestern Ohio.

Coalition of Care Collaboration

When they attended the Info Session, they learned about the significant need for local foster parents. Also, about the challenges and the joys of fostering. As a follow-up to the Info Session, the Coalition of Care collaborated with a local private foster agency and with Crossroads Church to bring the 36-hour Ohio foster parent pre-service training to the church campus.

Judge Barrett’s Catholic Faith Exposes Leftist Bigotry

by Administrator

Justice Antonin Scalia was one of the most brilliant, influential, and fascinating Supreme Court justices in recent history. A faithful Catholic, he was the father of nine children, one of whom is now serving as a priest in the Arlington diocese. Not only was Scalia Catholic, but he was willing to express and defend his faith in public with a p  LLC forthrightness that often took people off guard.

In one famous interview with New York Magazine, the conversation veered towards Scalia’s religious beliefs. At one point, as Scalia emphasized that he really did believe everything that the Church teaches, he leaned in conspiratorially, and whispered, “I even believe in the devil.”

Amnesty International calls for ‘universal right to abortion’

by Administrator

(Right to Life UK) Amnesty International has announced a new abortion policy which calls for countries around the world to introduce abortion-on-demand, for any reason, up to birth and allow sex-selective abortion.

The self-declared human rights organisation says that, in addition to campaigning for the full ‘decriminalisation’ of abortion around the world, they will call for “a universal access to safe abortions for all people who need them”.

“Every woman, girl or person who can become pregnant should have the right to abortion,” they add.

The term ‘decriminalise’ is a misnomer commonly used by abortion activists to describe the removal of almost all current safeguards around terminations, allowing abortion on-demand, for any reason, up to birth.

Abortion survivor and adoptee Claire Culwell: ‘There is a reason that I survived’

Abortion survivor Claire Culwell was recently interviewed by Live Action President and Founder Lila Rose about her story of abortion survival, adoption, and forgiveness. Culwell had grown up knowing she was adopted. In her early 20s, she met her birth mother and learned that her story was much more shocking than she could have ever realized.

Culwell told Rose that both she and her adopted sister had always known of their adoptions, and felt it was a “really positive thing.” Their parents were missionaries and they spent time living in places like Mexico and Costa Rica as children. It was a life they loved.

Court Stops Andrew Cuomo From Shutting Down Christian Adoption Agency

A federal court has stopped Governor Andrew Cuomo’s administration from shutting down a Catholic adoption agency that wants to stand up for its Christian beliefs.

New Hope Family Services, a faith-based adoption provider, has been waging a long battle against the Cuomo administration because New York officials are seeking to shut down the provider simply for its religious beliefs about marriage.

The New York State Office of Children and Family Services singled out the religious nonprofit for its policy prioritizing the placement of children it serves in homes with a married mother and father.

In November, at the request of Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing New Hope, the 2nd Circuit temporarily halted state officials from interrupting current adoption placements or mandating the closure of New Hope’s adoption program until the court had a chance to consider whether to reverse the federal district court’s decision.

Abortion and COVID-19: Two Pandemics By the Numbers

Patrick Hand adds more white palm crosses to the 2,000 that have been placed on the walls of the Church of the Ascension of the Lord in Balally, south Dublin, Ireland, on May 20, 2020. Each cross represents a victim of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 2,000 crosses have been placed on the red brick walls in memory of those who have died in Ireland and Northern Ireland, which is equal to the approximate number of abortions in the U.S. each day.

Democrats Desperately Exploit Coronavirus to Try to Block Amy Coney Barrett’s Nomination

Democrats are grabbing any excuse they can to delay the confirmation hearings for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The president’s positive COVID diagnosis, for one. The number of senators getting the virus, for another. But there’s a solution to those safety concerns: virtual hearings. A number of committees have already, successfully conducted business via Zoom, so why can’t the Senate Judiciary do the same and question Barrett the same way?

The RNC picked out a handful of hypocritical senators on Monday who praised the use of “hybrid hearings” before it came to Barrett’s nomination. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), for instance, thanked Chairman Lindsey Graham for holding the virtual hearing for Judge Justin Walker’s nomination to the U.S.

Premature baby born at 22 weeks goes home after four months in hospital

by Administrator

According to Nola.com, a baby boy born prematurely at just 22 weeks and two days is heading home from the hospital after four months in the NICU. Russell William Appold, Jr. was born weighing about one pound after his mother Natasha went into premature labor. Doctors said he had just a 14% chance of surviving. He is the first baby to survive at Tulane Lakeside Hospital in Louisiana after being born at such a young age.

“We take care of a lot of small babies,” said Dr. Lisa Barbiero, a neonatologist at Tulane Lakeside Hospital. “The difference is we haven’t had a survivor at this early of a gestation.”

President Trump: “Every Child, Born and Unborn, is Made in the Holy Image of God”

by Administrator

Last Thursday’s 75th annual Al Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, like its predecessors, raised millions for Catholic charities. Since 1960, beginning with John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, it’s become a tradition for the presidential candidates to appear.

Unlike previous years, however, Timothy Cardinal Dolan hosted the annual charity fundraiser virtually from his residence. Both pro-life President Donald Trump and pro-abortion former vice president Joe Biden spoke on video.

According to the Associated Press, Mr. Biden said his time in politics has been “guided by the tenets of Catholic social doctrine.” He said, “What you do to the least among us, you do unto me,” adding “We have a responsibility to future generations, and that’s the charge before us today,” the AP reported.

Mom Saves Her Baby When She Changes Her Mind in the Middle of the Abortion

Francheska failed to accurately assess her situation. This led her to seek an abortion. Thankfully her experience did not end with the regret and pain of so many moms who have undergone a chemical abortion.

Born and raised in California, Francheska had her own apartment and the prospect of being offered a great job. She had always been pro-life, but the news of an unwanted pregnancy took the form of unanticipated pressure to consider abortion.

This was the 21-year-old’s first pregnancy. Her family was supportive, but the father of her child was the first obstacle to choosing life for her baby.
