Pope Tells America: Time to Reject Abortion and Accept Life at Every Stage
The same day that he was chosen as TIME magazines Person of the Year Pope Francis exhorted North and South America to accept human life at every stage, from the mothers womb to old age.
Amid misinterpretations of the pontiffs pro-life stance in the mainstream media, the Holy Father continues to affirm his unwavering belief, completely united to that of the Catholic Church, that human life is sacred from conception to natural death. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/13/pope-tells-america-time-to-reject-abortion-and-accept-life-at-every-stage/
Baby Saved After Mom Regrets Taking the First Part of Abortion Drug
For some women, the regret of having an abortion may comes months or even years after the fact. But for a young mother named Emily, the regret was instantaneous. Immediately after she took the first part of the RU 486 abortion drug, she regretted her decision.
Fortunately, as the California Catholic newspaper reports, a pro-life physician was able to reverse the abortion drug and save her babys life. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/13/baby-saved-after-mom-regrets-taking-the-first-part-of-abortion-drug/
Woman With Stomach Pain Has 40-Year-Old Unborn Child Inside Her
A woman from Columbia reported stomach pain to her physician and doctors determined she had inside of her a 40-year-old unborn child who had died internally.
The 82-year-old, from Bogota, had what is known as lithopedion otherwise known as a stone baby. That is a condition that happens when the fetus develops outside the womb. The mother will now undergo surgery to have the baby removed. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/13/woman-with-stomach-pain-has-40-year-old-unborn-child-inside-her/
Sebelius Dodges Question About Obamacare Insurance Promise as Lie of the Year
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today dodged a question about the Lie of the Year award Obamacare won yesterday.
When Congress debated the Obamacare health care law, pro-life advocates were often the one early voice exposing how the law would cause rationing of life-saving care. Obamacare supporters have mocked the claim and the media went after Sarah Palin saying Americans should be concerned about death panels. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/13/sebelius-dodges-question-about-obamacare-insurance-promise-as-lie-of-the-year/
Which Obamacare Plans Pay for Abortions? Most State Exchanges Wont Tell You
From the beginning of the rollout of the federal and state websites displaying health insurance plans eligible for premium subsidies, the ability to identify key elements of the plans, compare and contrast them, and understand the scope of coverage and other issues has been limited at best.
In most cases, it was necessary at the outset of healthcare.gov (the federal exchange web site) on October 1, 2013 for an individual to register for a plan before finding out what it contained and what it excluded. That situation prevailed even for the most controversial of coverage topics elective abortion despite the prominence of the abortion issue in the final passage of the Affordable Care Act. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/13/which-obamacare-plans-pay-for-abortions-most-state-exchanges-wont-tell-you/
Couple Wins $50M in Biggest Wrongful Birth Suit, Doc Didnt Suggest Aborting Disabled Baby
A couple in Washington state have won what is being called the biggest so-called wrongful birth lawsuit ever, when their doctor didnt suggest aborting their disabled unborn child.
A jury in Washington state awarded a couple $50 million after genetic tests didnt give the couple the information they wanted to know about whether their baby had a rare genetic disorder. Had the baby had the disorder, the couple planned to take his or her life in an abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/13/couple-wins-50m-in-biggest-wrongful-birth-suit-doc-didnt-suggest-aborting-disabled-baby/
Liberal Activists Angry European Parliament Rejected Declaring Abortion a Human Right
The European left is outraged today as a controversial resolution went down to a totally unexpected defeat in the European Parliament on Tuesday in Brussels. Called the Estrela Report, the resolution called for a whole host of sexual and reproductive rights.
Writing at the blog Turtle Bay and Beyond, European human rights lawyer JC von Krempach said the non-binding Estrela report would have defined abortion as a human right, a first in the European context, eliminate conscience protection for medical personnel, federally fund abortion and in-vitro-fertilization, and through comprehensive sexuality education begin to teach toddlers about things like masturbation. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/13/liberal-activists-angry-european-parliament-rejected-declaring-abortion-a-human-right/
