Australian TV Star Commits Suicide After Massive Guilt Following Abortion
Abortion proponents push for easy access to abortion, deemphasizing its after-affects to the point they absolutely refuse to acknowledge post-abortion depression, which further incapacitates those actually living through it.
This is such a tragedy. Charlotte Dawson, RIP, was born in New Zealand but achieved fame in Australia as a model and a judge on Australias Next Top Model. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/23/australian-tv-star-commits-suicide-after-massive-guilt-following-abortion/
Little Sisters of the Poor Ask Appeals Court to Protect Them From Obamacare HHS Mandate
A Catholic religious order, the Little Sisters of the Poor, launched their full appeal before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals today , asking the court to protect their religious freedom from the HHS mandate. The mandate compels religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions.
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/2014/02/24/little-sisters-of-the-poor-ask-appeals-court-to-protect-them-from-obamacare-hhs-mandate/
Girl Scouts CEO Denies Planned Parenthood Links in Video Responding to Cookie Boycott
The Girl Scouts organization has had ties to the Planned Parenthood abortion business since the 1970s and a past CEO has admitted as much, but the Girl Scouts CEO has released a new YouTube video denying any such links.
Responding to the national Girl Scout cookie boycott LifeNews and several pro-life groups are co-sponsoring, Girl Scout CEO Anna Marie Chavez has released a new video saying the venerable organization is not working with Planned Parenthood or pushing an abortion agenda, despite considerable evidence to the contrary. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/girl-scouts-ceo-denies-planned-parenthood-links-in-video-responding-to-cookie-boycott/
Baby Born Alive in Poland After Failed 22-Week Abortion, Girl Has Down Syndrome
The Polish socialized healthcare system is bound and determined to exterminate children with Downs syndrome before they are born, said Kaja Godek, a pro-life activist.
Godek is also the mother of a boy born with this genetic condition. She herself was subject to pressure from health care providers to kill her child. Her televised speech before the Polish Parliament during a recent attempt to outlaw eugenic abortions granted her a standing ovation from conservative congressmen, and sent a shockwave through the media. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/baby-born-alive-in-poland-after-failed-22-week-abortion-girl-has-down-syndrome/
Paralympics Swimmer Jessica Long Meets Her Birth Parents for the First Time
Jessica Long grew up in Baltimore but thats a long way from where she was born. The Paraolympics swimmer was born in Russia and adopted by American parents and the Paraolympic Games in Sochi, Russia gave her an opportunity to meet her parents.
Long was featured on NBCs Olympic coverage in primetime Saturday. The 20-minute feature, Long Way Home: The Jessica Long Story, chronicled her rise to becoming a world class swimmer. The double amputee has won 2 Paralympic gold medals. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/paraolympics-swimmer-jessica-long-meets-her-adoptive-parents-for-the-first-time/
66 Babies Born Alive After Abortions in One Year in Britain, 16 After Viability
The problem of how to deal with babies born alive after abortion has been highlighted by a question asked at the Council of Europe.
The Committee of Ministers has been asked to act in order to guarantee that foetuses who survive abortions are not deprived of the medical treatment that they are entitled to as human persons born alive according to the European Convention on Human Rights. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/66-babies-born-alive-after-abortions-in-one-year-in-britain-16-after-viability/
Blakes Story: He Was Almost Aborted, Now Im Holding Him in My Arms
Seeing the fruits of our labor doesnt happen everyday in the pro-life community. But when a baby is saved from abortion, all glory be to God!
June 10, 2013 started out like any other day at Allen County Right to Life in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Everyone was working on projects for upcoming events. I was making calls regarding our Banquet dinner in October when my cell phone rang. It was my oldest daughter, Ali. I answered the phone and she informed me that a friend of hers had called her and asked if she would drive her to her appointment today at the abortion clinic. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/blakes-story-he-was-almost-aborted-now-im-holding-him-in-my-arms/
Supreme Court Forces Arizona Residents to Fund Planned Parenthood, Abortions

Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz Sells Baby Onesies at Its Online Store

Appeals Court Forces Notre Dame to Comply With Obamacare Birth Control Mandate

Taxpayer-Funded Planned Parenthood Is Selling Obamacare Door to Door
On Friday, Washington Post reporter Juliet Eilperin filed a Style section front-pager on Marlon Marshall, the deputy director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, where he is charged with helping to sell the Affordable Care Act, which remains politically polarizing and was damaged by a disastrous Web site rollout last fall. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/taxpayer-funded-planned-parenthood-is-selling-obamacare-door-to-door/
Atheist Comedian: Abortion Kills a Terrifying Blob of Not-a-Real Baby
Leftist funny man Jamie Kilstein posted a YouTube video titled Recruiting Tools for Atheists that travels pretty much to where you would expect a repeat guest of Melissa Harris-Perrys on MSNBC. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/atheist-comedian-abortion-kills-a-terrifying-blob-of-not-a-real-baby/

Sex-Selection Abortions an Issue in the Muslim World as Women Devalued
I wrote recently on this blog regarding the connection between religious chauvinism and sex-selective abortion, using reactionary Hinduism as an example. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/sex-selection-abortions-an-issue-in-the-muslim-world-as-women-devalued/
Study: 16% of People Killing Themselves in Assisted Suicide Clinics are Perfectly Healthy
I have been warning for more than 20 years that assisted suicide ultimately leads to death on demand. And so it has become in the Swiss suicide clinics according to a recent study. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/study-16-of-people-killing-themselves-in-assisted-suicide-clinics-are-perfectly-healthy/

Pennsylvanias Allegheny College Calls Pro-Life Students Dangerous
Allegheny College, a small liberal arts school in Pennsylvania, had an odd reaction to pro-life students who distributed flyers in academic buildings: they issued a campus alert, called the students dangerous, and treated it like a major security breach. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/24/pennsylvanias-allegheny-college-calls-pro-life-students-dangerous/
