Pope Francis Talks About Health Problems: I Only Have Two or Three Years Left to LiveNew reports today indicate Pope Francis, who has been celebrated by the pro-life community for his vocal opposition to abortion combined with a tender touch in support of pregnant women and the disabled, had a frank talk with reporters about his health and said he may not have long to live.
The leader of the Catholic Church spoke candidly about his health with reporters for the first time aboard the plane that carried him back to The Vatican from his visit to South Korea. On the plane during the interview, the Pope talked about his declining health and hinted that he may die in the next two to three years or retire early from his position as Pope Benedict XVI did before him. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/19/pope-francis-talks-about-health-problems-i-only-have-two-or-three-years-left-to-live/
Pro-Life Mom Was Arrested for Offering Water Outside Planned Parenthood, Then This HappenedOn July 24, 2012, in blazing 100°F heat, Kathy Forck approached a Stericycle truck driver who was leaving the Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Columbia, Missouri, to offer him a bottle of water.
Planned Parenthood had Kathy arrested as if a criminal! http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/19/pro-life-mom-was-arrested-for-offering-water-outside-planned-parenthood-then-this-happened/
Liberals Love Abortion, But They’re Outraged Ferguson Police are Using “Miscarriage Causing” Tear GasYou’ve got to hand it to the Left. Liberals love abortion, but when they’re outraged about something else and that something else somehow involves pregnant women, they act as if it’s the horror of horrors.
Witness their latest eyebrow-raising claim: Pro-life people aren’t really pro-life because they’re not speaking out about how police in Ferguson are using “miscarriage-causing” tear gas. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/19/liberals-love-abortion-but-theyre-outraged-ferguson-police-are-using-miscarriage-causing-tear-gas/

You Won’t Believe What These Parents Say About Their Son Who Has Down Syndrome
In our society, many people view children with Down syndrome as a burden or as people who will never reach the potential of other human beings. This is because some have medical hurdles to jump, educational mountains to climb, and daily living skills to learn that are a little different than everyone else.
However, if I were to give a parent the news that their child would have Down syndrome, I would not lift up the aforementioned challenges. Instead I would tell them that they had been given one of the most loving and sensitive children imparted to a family. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/19/you-wont-believe-what-these-parents-say-about-their-son-who-has-down-syndrome/

The Doctor Told Her Parents She Would Never Play Sports, Now She’s a Rodeo QueenAccording to the Center of Disease Control, Cerebral Palsy is the most common motor disability in childhood and causes abnormal brain development or damage to the developing brain that affects a person’s ability to control his or her muscles. In the United States, 1 in 323 children have cerebral palsy.
Although Cerebral Palsy is known to affect the way a child walks, many children are able to overcome their disability. For example, one girl in Colorado refuses to let her disability define her. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/19/the-doctor-told-her-parents-that-she-would-never-play-sports-now-she-is-a-rodeo-queen/
In Canada You Can’t Destroy Viable Geese Eggs, But You Can Abort Viable Unborn BabiesWhether your summer involved staying around home visiting the local swimming holes or travelling great distances, the chances are most of us will have seen Canada geese at some point. And, if not the geese themselves, certainly their ill-placed feces scattered across lakeside beaches.
Though majestic in flight, these large fowl have become a nuisance in recent years, and with a birth rate hovering around 5 goslings per year, new methods of population control are being explored. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/19/in-canada-you-cant-destroy-viable-geese-eggs-but-you-can-abort-viable-unborn-babies/
Single, Pregnant and Abandoned, She Could Have Chosen Abortion, But This HappenedEmbrace Grace, an organization dedicated to helping single, pregnant mothers to find the strength needed to choose life and find hope in their difficult situation, recently released the following video testimony by Mickaela.
Mickaela is a young mom who found herself abandoned by her father as a teen. The abandonment left her questioning her own self-worth and in search of someone who would accept her for who she was. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/19/single-pregnant-and-abandoned-she-could-have-chosen-abortion-but-this-happened/

Cosmo Attacks Pro-Lifers, Calls Abortion “Miscarriage Management”In keeping with their recent “excellence in media” award from Planned Parenthood, the September issue of Cosmopolitan offers its young female audience a “Hot and Healthy Investigation” into how Texas Republicans have ruined the glorious opportunity to abort in the Lone Star State. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/19/cosmo-attacks-pro-lifers-calls-stopping-abortions-miscarriage-management/

Ireland: Labour Party Pushes for More Abortion as Premature Baby Clings to LifeThe Pro Life Campaign has strongly criticised the statements yesterday from a number of Labour Party TDs demanding wider access to abortion and for Article 40.3.3 of the Constitution to be deleted. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/19/ireland-labour-party-pushes-for-more-abortion-as-premature-baby-clings-to-life/

Heroic News: “Law and morality in public discourse” plus 4 more

heroicnews

University of California Santa Barbara Professor of Feminist Studies, Mireille Miller-Young, has been sentenced in a criminal case in connection with an assault on pro-life young people who took the pro-life message to the UCSB campus.
"Being pregnant has a strange duality to it. Your life—the principle parts of it—stay the same. Social invites keep hitting your inbox. Work doesn’t wane. You still have the same commitments, meetings, and to-dos. So this big difference in your life can feel, well, small. It can be hard to be present and connected to the baby growing within you, when you’re so overwhelmed with your changing body and world."
One of the nation's most pro-life governors is facing growing opposition from his own party -- and some of that opposition has backed a pro-abortion candidate to replace him.
Unless California state officials decide that the move violates state law, starting next year Loyola Marymount University and Santa Clara University, both Catholic-affiliated schools, will deny insurance coverage to faculty, staff, and administrators seeking abortions.

Just imagine…before election time…


The Shocking Horror of a LIVE ABORTION
will now be broadcast on LARGE TV SCREENS
for THOUSANDS of AMERICANS!
Dear Pro-Life Friend,
If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I would not have believed it.
But one day, when we first used the big huge "JumboTron" TV screen -- the kind you see at professional sports stadiums and major concerts -- to broadcast the horrible TRUTH about abortion to the crowds...
YOU COULD HAVE HEARD A PIN DROP!


The huge crowds just stood there and watched. Their jaws dropped. I saw tears run down the faces of many people as I glanced around.
When the video was finished, you could just "feel" the impact it had.
There was a hushed silence, and then you could hear murmuring as people tried to explain to themselves and each other what they had just seen...
LIVE ABORTION CAUGHT ON CAMERA!
All the gory parts. All the blood. All the trauma. And especially... the little baby's body parts -- including the head -- pulled and ripped apart and callously removed from the mother's womb.
There was no mistaking it. This was a homicide. That was a BABY. And the crowd of onlookers finally knew what the word "abortion" really means.
No longer could they be "swayed" by double-talk of "women's freedom" and "a woman's choice"!
Not anymore!
This was in a public square -- with a HUGE crowd of people watching.
For once -- finally! -- average Americans got to SEE what abortion really is.
As the saying goes...
"Americans won't STOP abortion until Americans SEE abortion."
And that's what we're doing.
We're SHOWING ABORTION to the American people through the use of the amazingly powerful "JumboTron" TV screens -- those HUGE impossible-to-ignore live-action video screens that are used nationwide these days.
We have a long history of success with this kind of pro-life work.
We not only "Show The Truth" about abortion with things like Truth Trucks that drive across the country with BIG graphic posters on them -- as "mobile billboards" -- but we also go directly onto COLLEGE CAMPUSES with our powerful (and professional) displays and literature...
...calmly yet methodically spreading the horrible truth about abortion to as many young people as we can reach.
We know that if college students these days SEE THE TRUTH about abortion, they are FAR less likely to GET an abortion. That's a fact.
And the ones who've had abortions are able to get the HEALING and FORGIVENESS they so desperately need, directly through our outreach.
But the most powerful thing we've ever done is our "JumboTron" Project -- where we rent these big huge TV screens and set them up in the PUBLIC SQUARE for ALL passersby to see.
Therefore, I'm hoping you'll be able to help us today with an extra-special gift of $30 or more for this monumentally-effective LIFE-SAVING pro-life project.
Recently we have shown our "JumboTron" video in FOUR major markets: TampaSan FranciscoCincinnati, and the granddaddy of them all, WASHINGTON, DC.
But now we're ready to move forward and conduct our "JumboTron" Project in SIX MORE CITIES before the November elections.
To accomplish that goal -- and finally CHANGE the way people THINK and FEEL about abortion -- we now need a whopping $23,700 from pro-lifers like you, from all across the country.
All it takes is the funds to rent each JumboTron screen, each time.
For your special gift of $100 or more, we will send you a copy on DVD of the powerful video we use on the JumboTron screen.
This HITS PEOPLE right between the eyes... and ears... and puts the TRUTH about abortion directly into their MINDS!
Virtually everyone says, "I'm opposed to abortion now" after they watch our JumboTron video.
When that is done -- on a nationwide scale -- we will definitely see REAL CHANGES in the way Americans think and "vote" on abortion.
But America simply won't change until they SEE an actual abortion.
And that's what our JumboTron Project is all about!
Therefore, I'm hoping and praying that you'll be able to help us with a generous donation of $30 or more -- today -- so we can move forward with our current plans to bring the JumboTron video project to at least SIX MORE MAJOR CITIES between now and November.
Just imagine the impact THAT will have on elections wherever we go!
In one afternoon, we can deeply reach more people for less money than if we spent hundreds of thousands on 'slick direct mail' for a political campaign.
When you see the baby being torn apart in her mother's womb -- on a HUGE TV SCREEN in the middle of the public square with thousands of people watching -- you will see what I see...
...the beginnings of a nationwide "shift" in public opinion on abortion.
It's long overdue. And yet, not a moment too soon.
Please. May I hear from you TODAY?
Thank you, and God bless you for caring.
Yours in the cause of LIFE,
           
Mark Harrington
Founder and National Director,
Created Equal
p.s. If you give $100 OR MORE you can transform your TV into your own "mini-JumboTron screen" -- and show this video wherever you'd like. You'll be both shockedamazed, and inspired to do more! It changes everything...!

BREAKING VICTORY: Judge Upholds Iowa Webcam Abortion Ban Regulations

 

Breaking Victory!  Judge Upholds Iowa Webcam Abortion Ban Regulations

August 19, 2014

By Cheryl Sullenger

Des Moines, IA - Polk County District Judge Jeffrey Farrell ruled today that the Iowa Board of Medicine was acting within its proper authority when it banned the use of Planned Parenthood's experimental "Webcam" abortion pill distribution process.

This ruling will allow the implementation and enforcement of the webcam abortion ban in 30 days.

Planned Parenthood has said it will appeal today's ruling.

"Operation Rescue has worked with other state and national pro-life groups since 2010 to bring an end to this dangerous abortion pill distribution racket that puts Planned Parenthood profits above the lives and health of women," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "Today represents a long awaited victory for women and their babies."

Feminist Professor Who Assaulted Pro-Lifers Sentenced to Three Years Probation and Anger ManagementUniversity of California Santa Barbara Professor of Feminist Studies, Mireille Miller-Young, has been sentenced in a criminal case in connection with an assault on pro-life young people who took the pro-life message to the UCSB campus.
Miller-Young was sentenced to 108 hours of community service, 10 hours of anger management, and three years probation for her assault on a group of pro-life students in early March. She was also ordered to pay a small fine and restitution of almost $500. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/18/feminist-professor-who-assaulted-pro-lifers-sentenced-to-three-years-probation-and-anger-management/
Planned Parenthood Director Threatened Black Pro-Life Legislator, Wanted Someone to “Kick Her A–”A director of an affiliate of the Planned Parenthood abortion business has been forced to resign after threatening a black pro-life state legislator in Louisiana — saying she wanted someone to “kick her a–.

Katrina Jackson, (pictured right) who sponsored legislation that may result in shutting down abortion clinics that can’t comply with new state health and safety laws. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/18/planned-parenthood-director-threatened-black-pro-life-legislator-wanted-someone-to-kick-her-a/
Abortionist’s Wife on How It’s Okay to Do Abortions: “Read the Bible and You’ll See”The Bible condemns abortion with its admonitions against murder and encouragement to choose life and respect the life God created. But the wife of a prominent late-term abortion practitioner thinks the Bible justifies her husband’s profession.
After a hearing late last week which saw a local judge issue an order closing down his abortion clinic if it failed to meet state health and safety laws, Martin Haskell and his wife left the courtroom and were greeted by pro-life advocates. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/18/abortionists-wife-on-how-its-okay-to-do-abortions-read-the-bible-and-youll-see/

When I Found Out My Mother Aborted My Brother: “$100 is Not Too Bad For an Abortion”
I recently interviewed Donna, who struggles with feelings of loss, sadness, and guilt over an abortion her mother had before she was born. Her testimony is raw and honest, and she is still struggling with the death of her sibling. Even though neither her testimony nor her views fit neatly into the typical pro-life narrative that some people may expect, I feel she deserves a chance to be heard. May her story raise awareness of the pain that siblings of aborted babies often feel.

The Quiet Moment That Shocked an Abortion Worker Into Leaving Planned ParenthoodIt happens all too often that a person’s ideology and moral conscience are in deep conflict.
This is exemplified in the story of Catherine Adair, who was so entrenched in her “pro-choice” philosophy that she couldn’t see that the guilt and depression she so regularly experienced stemmed from an abortion in her youth. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/18/the-quiet-moment-that-shocked-an-abortion-worker-into-leaving-planned-parenthood/

Sacrilegious Cinemax Show “The Knick” Features Nun Performing AbortionA sacrilegious television show on the Cinemax cable television channel is coming under fire from Catholics today because it features a nun performing an abortion.
The Knick is a television drama series on Cinemax directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Clive Owen. The program looks at the professional and personal lives of Dr. John W. Thackery (played by Owen) and the staff at the fictional Knickerbocker Hospital (“the Knick”) during the early part of the twentieth century. Abortion was not legal during this time. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/18/sacrilegious-cinemax-show-the-knick-features-nun-performing-abortion/

"The Church does not shame people about sex. It actually holds sex as sacred. It values the God-given function of the sexual act, to create life. And in doing so, it celebrates the other functions of sex, to give pleasure and bring two people closer together. The Church holds that, by separating sex from its main purpose of creating life, we change it and devalue it."
