35 Countries Sign Declaration Saying “There is No Right to Abortion”

35 Countries Sign Declaration Saying “There is No Right to Abortion”

by Administrator

Vice President Mike Pence led a pro-life event at the White House yesterday where he announced two major pro-life developments on the domestic front — the Trump administration denying $200 million to California for forcing Christians to fund abortions, and a lawsuit against the University of Vermont for forcing a nurse to kill a baby in an abortion.

But Pence also announced an international pro-life development as well: more countries signing a declaration saying there is no right to kill an unborn child in an abortion.

The United States has put together an international coalition of nations signing the Geneva Consensus Declaration.

New UN Manuel Shows Kids as Young as 10 How to Get Abortion Without Their Parents Knowing

New UN Manuel Shows Kids as Young as 10 How to Get Abortion Without Their Parents Knowing

by Administrator

(C-Fam) An inter-agency group that includes several UN bodies has been working to create a right to abortion in humanitarian settings.  A new manual focusing on adolescent “sexual and reproductive health” in crises represents another step in that process — defining children as young as 10 to receive abortion without parental knowledge.

Two years ago, the same group released its “Inter-Agency Field Manual on Reproductive Health in Humanitarian Settings,” which asserted that “multiple international agreements and expert bodies have recognized a women’s right to access safe abortion.”  This statement sidesteps the fact that no global agreement has ever accepted this, and that the opinions of expert bodies, including those that monitor compliance with UN treaties, are nonbinding.

Two and a half years after first saving a toddler from an abusive home, an Arizona police officer and his family adopted the little girl. Lieutenant Brian Zach was a patrol officer in Kingman, Arizona, at the time. He responded to a residence check in March 2018, where he found a toddler who was living in abusive home.

Zach told Good Morning America that during the check, he and the little girl, Kaila, “colored [and] snacked … she held my hand and she was just this cute little thing.” Detectives soon arrived at the scene and took Kaila to the hospital for her injuries.

When her water broke at 16 weeks, doctors told her to abort her twins. She chose life instead.

When her water broke at 16 weeks, doctors told her to abort her twins. She chose life instead.

by Administrator

In 2019, UK mother Hannah Morris described how she was repeatedly pressured to abort her twin boys by doctors and was called “inhumane” when she refused. She successfully delivered her children, who have become healthy and active toddlers.

Morris suffered a premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM) 24 weeks before her due date. She was 16 weeks along when the amniotic sac surrounding one twin ruptured. The second one ruptured three weeks later. When the first amniotic sac ruptured, doctors told her she should abort her twins because they were going to die. Morris said in a UK Sun article:

I had an internal examination and the doctor told me that my waters had broken, and he was really sorry but there was nothing they could do for us.

Leslie fell into depression and addiction after an abortion at 17, and now urges others to choose life

Leslie, a mother who recently shared her heartbreaking abortion story with The ProLife Momma on Facebook, was pushed into abortion as a teenager and said she “fell into a deep depression.” She spiraled into heavy drinking, but a second unplanned pregnancy changed everything.

“I ABORTED my baby at 17,” she said. “Not even one week after I found out I was pregnant, I was rushed into a Planned Parenthood center and laid there listening as my baby was chopped to pieces by a vacuum crushing machine. A sound that I have NEVER been able to forget.”

Leslie became depressed and tried to numb her pain with drugs and alcohol.

Forever families: Five of our favorite adoption stories of 2020

Forever families: Five of our favorite adoption stories of 2020

More than 100,000 adoptions take place in the United States every year. In 2015, about half of those were adoptions through foster care. Whether through a private organization or through foster care, adoption is a gift that helps love and families grow. Here are five of our favorite adoption stories from 2020.

1. “I’m your dad forever”

Former foster child Robert Carter entered the foster care program when he was 12 years old, and was unable to see his siblings for years. Once he was emancipated, he was awarded custody of his younger brother and sister, but the experience in the foster care system, away from them, left its mark.

Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard introduces bill to protect pain-capable preborn children

Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard introduces bill to protect pain-capable preborn children

by Administrator

After introducing a bill to protect abortion survivors last week, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has introduced a second pro-life bill. HR 8939 aims to protect pain-capable preborn children from abortion.

The full text of the bill is currently unavailable, but Democrats for Life of America (DFLA) wasted no time in thanking Gabbard. “Former Democratic Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard introduced her SECOND Pro-Life bill this week, which would amend Title 18 of the U.S. code to give pain-capable fetuses rights under the law,” the group said on Facebook. “Tulsi has previously voted against this bill three times, but is now the SPONSOR of the new bill.

Feminists Hate Ultrasound Photos Because They Prove Unborn Babies are Human Beings

Let’s see if I get this correct. When pro-abortionists find something—anything—they think can further the process of desensitizing the public to the horrors of abortion, it is “real science.”

When pro-lifers find something—anything—that offsets the callous attempts of the Abortion Industry, we’re indulging in “phony science.”

When we are offering is irrefutable, we’re said to have “hijacked” it.

Enter “The Iconic Photo Hijacked By the Anti-Abortion Movement,” by Amarens Eggerat, whose grumpy piece for VICE Netherlands was  reposted for an American audience here.

Pro-life veterans would guess, correctly, that she is referring to “Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson’s book of photography A Child Is Born, which became a global sensation after appearing in Life magazine in 1956 [she means 1965] Nilsson captured extreme closeups showing the different stages of human development, from fertilised egg to fully-formed baby.”

He’s a ‘fighter’: Baby boy born weighing one pound celebrates third birthday

On November 1, a family in Georgia celebrated their son’s final medical treatment from complications following his preterm birth. Then the following day, they celebrated his third birthday.

According to Good Morning America, when Charlie Smith graduated from his continued care, first responders and medical staff were there, holding a driveby parade and ceremony for him, which was captured on video. “He wore his cap and gown and [his nurse] Geunevah handed him a certificate,” said his mother Alena Smith.

 

 

Charlie was born at just 25 weeks gestation, weighing one pound, and doctors gave him a 50/50 chance of surviving.

Adopted Girl With Disabilities Makes 100 Hats for Premature Babies

When Ashley McKendrick had to take off work for two weeks after a coworker tested positive for the coronavirus, she decided to put her free time to good use.

The 23-year-old Gilbert, Arizona woman began making hats for premature babies, remembering how she herself had been born prematurely, the Arizona Republic reports.

Ashley, who has physical and mental disabilities, has made 100 hats so far, and she plans to continue her mission through March, according to the report. Her family said she also taught her siblings to make the hats so that they could help her.

Ashley has 23 siblings.

COMMENTARY: Mary of Guadalupe, symbol of hope and renewal

COMMENTARY: Mary of Guadalupe, symbol of hope and renewal

by Administrator

The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is Dec. 12. 

The most popular Marian devotion among U.S. Catholics presently is the devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe. She is the most widely embraced Marian devotion in the entire American continent and perhaps the most revered religious icon in the world.

Although we could attribute her wide appeal to the fast-growing Hispanic population in our country — nearly half of all U.S. Catholics — Mary of Guadalupe has a special place in the hearts of Catholics from every culture, race and social location.

My first encounter with Our Lady of Guadalupe was at a very young age when I heard the story of her apparitions.

The following article was published by the New York Times on October 8, 1933.

German monument to the victims of euthanasia

The Associated Press published an article on the proposed German euthanasia program on October 7, 1933; soon after the Nazi party took control of the German government. The article states:

The Ministry of Justice in a detailed memorandum explaining the Nazi aims regarding the German penal code today announced its intention to authorize physicians to end the sufferings of incurable patients.

The memorandum, still lacking the force of law, proposed that “it shall be made possible for physicians to end the tortures of incurable patients, upon request, in the interests of true humanity.”

New CDC report: Later abortions occur far more often than public is led to believe

New CDC report: Later abortions occur far more often than public is led to believe

by Administrator

Despite media and abortion advocates’ claims, later abortions are not as rare as the public is led to believe, nor are they only committed on unhealthy babies. Live Action’s undercover investigations have captured footage of late-term abortionists admitting as much.

A new report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals that in 2018, an estimated 50,000 abortions were committed at 14 weeks or later, with nearly 6,200 of those committed at or over 21 weeks — the point at which some premature babies have survived with assistance. The report also showed that the number of later abortions increased by four percent from just two years prior (2016).

Ireland study says over half of abortionists have ‘internal conflict’ over killing babies

by Administrator

A recent study from Ireland shows that abortionists feel “conflicted” about killing preborn babies. The study examined the induction abortions of babies with conditions likely leading to death soon after birth. An induction abortion consists of injecting the preborn child in the heart with a feticide to cause cardiac arrest and death, and then inducing labor.

The study found that over half of the abortionists “expressed internal conflict about the provision of feticide and the need to ‘separate yourself from it completely’. They described feticide as ‘brutal’, ‘awful’ and ‘emotionally difficult’, referring to it as ‘stabbing the baby in the heart’, and held themselves responsible for the death of the baby: ‘I caused the death.’”

Black births outnumber Black abortions in NYC for first time in years

Black births outnumber Black abortions in NYC for first time in years

by Administrator

For the first time in years, reported live births in 2017 from Black mothers outnumbered Black babies aborted in New York City (NYC). According to the most recent data from the Summary of Vital Statistics 2017, The City of New York, published by the NYC Department of Health, abortions obtained by Black women (20,569) made up nearly 38% of all abortions (54,391) reported in the city. Although the number is certainly grim, it represents a slight decline in the number of Black abortions from the previous year.

The news may be an indication that more Black mothers are choosing life in the Big Apple.

Stephanie Wolfe and her husband Eric thought they were finished having babies after their third daughter was born. When those feelings changed and they discussed having another baby or adopting, Wolfe had a strong feeling that if she were to become pregnant, their baby would have Down syndrome. Her instincts were right, and when the ultrasound tech told her she could abort her baby immediately, she vehemently refused.

“I told Eric I really felt like the baby would have Down syndrome if I were to get pregnant,” she told Love What Matters. “He told me that was silly and that the chances of that happening were so slim it shouldn’t even cross my mind.”

Abortions Have Dropped 57% Since 1990, More Babies Saved From Abortion Than Ever Before

Abortions Have Dropped 57% Since 1990, More Babies Saved From Abortion Than Ever Before

On Wednesday, November 25th, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released its annual “Abortion Surveillance Report” for the year 2018. Based on an in-depth analysis by National Right to Life’s Department of Education and Research, the numbers continue to show a steady decline in abortions since 2009, although the 2018 survey shows a slight increase in abortions compared to the previous survey.

“While it looks like, in the long-term, abortions are definitely down, there may be a small increase in the number, rate, and ratio of abortions since the CDC’s last full surveillance report in 2016,” said Randall K.

Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this guest post are solely those of the author and are not necessarily reflective of Live Action or Live Action News.

(JulieKlose.com) In advance of the election, many faith leaders weighed in with their opinions about the presidential candidates. Abortion was a focus of many articles, tweets, and videos. As Christians who embrace the sanctity of life of the unborn, we were faced with two candidates with opposing abortion beliefs: protecting life in the womb or expanding elective abortion up to 40 weeks of pregnancy and even infanticide. The choice seemed clear, yet many faith leaders added their nuanced positions regarding the candidates.

Premature baby born weighing 14 oz. leaves hospital after nine months

by Administrator

(Right to Life UK) A New Zealand baby born at 23 weeks is now 9 months old and has left the hospital.

Declan Colquhoun, along with his brother Riley, was born in March at just 23 weeks gestation. He was so small, weighing only 400g, that his aunt’s wedding ring would have fitted around his arm.

Over the next two weeks, Riley sadly lost his life, but 8 months later, Declan is getting stronger every day. He now weighs 7 kg [15 pounds].

At 22 weeks gestation, the twins’ mother Kathryn Hutchinson was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia and had to have an emergency caesarean.

Dad Adopts Five Siblings to Keep Them All Together, Was the Only Foster Parent to Say Yes

An Ohio man officially became a father of five after finalizing adoption of two girls and three boys at the end of October.  WBALTV reports that single foster dad Robert Carter adopted siblings Marionna, Makayla, Robert, Giovanni, and Kiontae in order to keep the children together as a family.

For Carter, the decision to foster and adopt came in part from his personal experience.  At age 12, Carter entered the foster care system and was separated from some of his younger siblings for years.  After being emancipated, Carter was reunited with a younger sister and brother by gaining custody and being appointed guardian.
