Media Hailed Wendy Davis Abortion Filibuster as Heroic, But Attack Ted Cruz
The media treatment of Ted Cruz and his anti-Obamacare filibuster is a significant contrast from the way it handled the filibuster Texas lawmaker Wendy Davis mounted to keep abortions legal in Texas up tot he day of birth.
Sen. Ted Cruz, also from Texas, pulled an all-nighter in the U.S. Senate as he advocated for the defunding of Obamacare. Wearing black tennis shoes for comfort in the same way Davis sported pink sneakers, the Texas senator started speaking at 2:41 p.m. on Tuesday and has continued for almost 20 hours as of this writing. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/25/media-hailed-wendy-davis-abortion-filibuster-as-heroic-but-attack-ted-cruz/
Kermit Gosnell Uses Margaret Sangers Arguments to Defend His Abortions, Infanticides
Ive often thought that one of the best things that could happen to the pro-life movement is for the pro-choice movement to get its own 24-hour cable channel.
Just give them a camera, give them a microphone, and let them talk. And talk. And talk some more. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/25/kermit-gosnell-uses-margaret-sangers-arguments-to-defend-his-abortions-infanticides/
Chinas One-Child Policy Turns 33 as Forced Abortions, Female Infanticides Continue
Today, China will mark 33 years of the one-child family planning policy that has resulted in massive human rights abuses, including forced abortions and coercive sterilizations.
Started in 1980, the policy, which prohibits most Chinese couples form having more than one baby and limits rural residents to two, has resulted in severe human rights abuses. Family planning officials frequently jail couples who refuse to comply, sentence them to house arrest or labor camps, revoke jobs or governmental support, use physical harassment or violence and often target other family members. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/25/chinas-one-child-policy-turns-33-as-forced-abortions-female-infanticides-continue/
11 Things Pro-Choicers Dont Get About Abortion
1) Its not about choice; its about abortion. I mean, really, what choice are we talking about here? The choice to what? Were not debating the choice to keep your child and raise him yourself. Were not arguing over adoption, either. The sole thing we have a difference on is abortion. Thats what were debating here. So lets get real.
Youre either pro-abortion or youre pro-life. If you support the choice to abort, then you are pro-abortion. And if you have a hard time with that, maybe you should reconsider your beliefs http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/25/11-things-pro-choicers-dont-get-about-abortion/
My Son Would be Four Today, But I Cant Celebrate His Birthday Because I Aborted Him
As summer turns to autumn and the leaves on the trees begin changing hues and the air gets a bit cooler, my heart remembers. This is the time of year I should have welcomed my first child into the world. He should be turning four this year, as he was due at the end of September or beginning of October.
He should be playing, laughing, learning, growing, and a part of my every day. I should be baking a birthday cake with four candles to be blown out. The day should be full of balloons, presents, and all things related to a little boys birthday. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/25/my-son-would-be-four-today-but-i-cant-celebrate-his-birthday-because-i-aborted-him/
575,000 Participants, 7,500 Babies Saved But Networks Have Never Covered 40 Days for Life
As thousands gather across the world in a campaign against abortion, one group will likely remain absent: the media.
September 25 marked the beginning of the fall 2013 40 Days for Life, an international pro-life campaign of prayer and fasting for the unborn and their mothers held in 306 cities this year. The Washington, D.C. chapter held a vigil to raise awareness the night before, hosting as speakers Catholic Information Centers Director Father Arne Panula and Susan B. Anthony Lists Deputy Director Billy Valentine. No media attended other than the Media Research Center. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/25/575000-participants-7500-babies-saved-but-networks-have-never-covered-40-days-for-life/
Little Sisters of the Poor Sue Obama: Dont Force us to Obey HHS Abortion Mandate
A Catholic religious order, the Little Sisters of the Poor, has filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration asking the courts to protect them from being forced to comply with the HHS abortion mandate. The mandate compels religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions.
Yesterday, the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Little Sisters of the Poor, a religious order of Sisters dedicated to caring for the elderly poor. Without relief, the Little Sisters face millions of dollars in IRS fines because they cannot comply with the governments mandate that they give their employees free access to contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/25/little-sisters-of-the-poor-sue-obama-dont-force-us-to-obey-hhs-abortion-mandate/
Is Abortion Justified When the Unborn Baby is Disabled?
The New York Times recently published an article titled My Abortion, at 23 Weeks. The author explains that she was pregnant with twins, a boy and a girl, but that the boy was diagnosed with a herniated diaphragm. He would require surgery and life support for a period after birth. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/25/is-abortion-justified-when-the-unborn-baby-is-disabled/
The Ugly, Unknown Story Behind Roe v. Wade
Its not often that I agree with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but she was right for more reasons than she probably realized when she said last year that the Supreme Courts 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade went too far, too fast.. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/25/the-ugly-unknown-story-behind-roe-v-wade/
