Woman Tells How Aerosmith Singer Steven Tyler Pressured Her to Have Late-Term Abortion
Julia Holcomb has spoken out before how Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler once pressured her to have an abortion when she got pregnant while they were dating.
In print interviews, Holcomb related the story of how her relationship with the rock star in the late 1970s resulted in an abortion that nearly destroyed both of them. Holcomb began telling her story recently after Tylers comments about the abortion and his regrets over it surfaced in Walk this Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith, a book about Tylers life. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/woman-tells-how-aerosmith-singer-steven-tyler-pressured-her-to-have-late-term-abortion/
Mom Wishes Daughter Was Never Born? Sues for Wrongful Birth After Botched Tubal
A so-called wrongful birth lawsuit makes it appear Cynthia Williams, a 40-year-old mother of three in Illinois, wishes one of her children were never born.
This wrongful birth lawsuit follows one which saw parents Parents Brock and Rhea Wuth were awarded $50 million by a Washington jury for the wrongful birth of their five-year-old son, Oliver. Oliver was born with an unbalanced chromosome translocation, a genetic defect that affects the little boy mentally and physically. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/mom-wishes-daughter-was-never-born-sues-for-wrongful-birth-after-botched-tubal/

South Carolina House Passes Bill to Ban Abortions After 20 Weeks
The South Carolina state House has passed a bill, on an 84-29 vote, that would ban abortions after 20 weeks based on scientific evidence showing unborn children feel pain. Currently the state allows abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy unless the life of the mother is at risk.
The vote included 70 Republicans and 14 Democrats. All 29 votes against the bill were Democrats. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/south-carolina-house-passes-bill-to-ban-abortions-after-20-weeks/
Mom Who Adopted One Child But Aborted Another: I Pray for Forgiveness Daily
When Meg Perez was 18 years old and far from home with the military, she became pregnant. Having been raised Catholic and pro-life, she knew in her heart that abortion was not an option. So, she took an honorable discharge and made her way back home to be with her family for support.
She decided that she would place her son for adoption and was blessed to find a Catholic adoption attorney who helped her find Catholic parents who would raise her child in the Church. The couple she chose were unable to have children, and Meg knew they were the right people to become her sons parents. But letting go of her baby was extremely difficult.http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/mom-who-adopted-one-child-but-aborted-another-i-pray-for-forgiveness-daily/
Mom Gives Birth to Healthy Quintuplets, Parents Still Working on Baby Names
A mother in Texas is now the proud mom of five brand spanking new babies the first set of quintuplets delivered at Baylor Universitys hospital. The parents are now working on names for the little ones.
Michelle Seals gave birth to four daughters and one son on Tuesday and they are all in good health. Doctors performed a Cesearian section to allow for the birth of all five babies. The addition of five new ones makes eight children for the family, who already has a 2-year-old boy. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/mom-gives-birth-to-healthy-quintuplets-parents-still-working-on-baby-names/
Conceived in Rape and Saved From Abortion, Patty Now Prays at Planned Parenthood
Patty is in a very small category. Not only is she one of a small group of people who were spared from being killed in an abortion after her birthmother was raped, but she is not an ardent pro-life advocate.
Patty spends her time now in the 40 Days for Life pro-life prayer campaign praying outside a local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic hoping to tell women considering abortions that they should spare their unborn children. A new video (below) features a short interview with patty as she explains how grateful she is that her birthmother gave her life and placed her with a loving adoptive family. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/conceived-in-rape-and-saved-from-abortion-patty-now-prays-at-planned-parenthood/
Mother Who Had Abortion in Hospital Wishes She Could Have Sacrificed Her Child Someplace Compassionate
Every now and then, during my research on abortion, I come across a quote or statement that just makes me shake my head. Such as this quote from a post-abortive woman named Sue Nathanson.
Nathanson, a self-proclaimed feminist, apparently regrets her abortion. But she regrets it not because she lost her child, even though she acknowledges this fact. No, she wishes that her child could have been sacrificed in a more compassionate and loving environment: http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/mother-who-had-abortion-in-hospital-wishes-she-could-have-sacrificed-her-child-someplace-compassionate/

Bad News for the Pro-Abortion Movement: Obamacare Dooming Democratic Senate Hopefuls
Obamacare is moving poll numbers against Democrats and even some of the laws supporters are beginning to fear the effect it may have on the 2014 midterm elections. However, not all are willing to publicly acknowledge the reality. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/bad-news-for-the-pro-abortion-movement-obamacare-dooming-democratic-senate-hopefuls/
Remains of 86 Babies Who Died in Abortions, Miscarriages Stored at Hospital for Four Years
It wasnt supposed to be this way. Babies who died in abortions and miscarriages at Walsall Manor Hospital, in the West Midlands, were supposed to be cremated within months of their deaths. Instead, they were stored for periods as long as four years. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/remains-of-86-babies-who-died-in-abortions-miscarriages-stored-at-hospital-for-four-years/

Abortion Activists Distribute Graphic Propaganda at UNs Commission On Women
On April 6, 2006 the New York Times Magazine published a highly fictionalized account of abortion in Latin America sardonically titled Pro-Life Nation. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/19/abortion-activists-distribute-graphic-propaganda-at-uns-commission-on-women/
