Big Bundle of Joy! Chinese Mom Gives Birth to 14-Pound Baby Boy
Frequently at LifeNews we focus on the birth of premature babies.

New Book, Abortion Free, Tells the Inside Story of Late-Term Abortionist George Tiller and his "After Tiller" Protégés

New Book, Abortion Free, Tells the Inside Story of Late-Term Abortionist George Tiller and His
After Tiller Protégés

September 1, 2014

Wichita, KS - On Monday evening, PBS plans to air the film, After Tiller, which features three late-term abortionists, LeRoy Carhart, Shelley Sella, and Susan Robinson, who worked with George Tiller doing very late-term abortions in Wichita, Kansas.  

"After Tiller fails to tell the true story of what actually happened in Wichita while Carhart, Sella, and Robinson worked for Tiller. Those three abortionists are not the saints portrayed in the movie, as we witnessed first-hand," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Newman and Cheryl Sullenger have laid out the horrific truth about Tiller's late-term abortion business and the After Tiller abortionists in a new book, Abortion Free, which is set for release on October 2, 2014. The book is currently available for pre-order from WorldNetDaily Books.

In the book, Newman and Sullenger relate the story of the gruesome death of Christin Gilbert, a Downs syndrome teen that died as a result of a horrifically botched third trimester abortion at Tiller's infamous late-term abortion facility in Wichita. It details Carhart's involvement and his evasion of a grand jury subpoena that thwarted justice in that case.

The authors also describe:
* How former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius illegally wined and dined the most notorious abortionists in the world, including those featured in the After Tiller film.
* The real story of former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline, a pro-life hero who stood up to Sebelius's political agenda to protect Tiller from criminal prosecution - an effort that cost his political career.
* The inside story of Operation Rescue's campaign to expose wrongdoing by Tiller and his associates that the likes of Rachel Maddow don't want the public to know.
* How George Tiller was legally and peacefully shut down prior to his murder.
But more importantly, Abortion Free details how pro-life supporters can successfully close abortion clinics using the proven strategies and tactics that have contributed to the closure of 73% of all abortion facilities in America since 1991.

"Abortion Free is a manual for the pro-life movement that teaches how anyone can stop abortion through peaceful and legal means," said Newman. "Our experiences with Tiller and other abortionists around the nation that have been closed down using the methods described in our book serve as a blueprint for building an abortion-free America once community at a time."

Abortion Free can be pre-ordered at the WorldNetDaily Superstore and Amazon.com.

How did you startle your parents when you were 16 and refused to go to church any more? I grew up in a Christian home and at age 16 decided there’s no God. So I wrote my parents a letter, sat them down, had them read the letter aloud, and told them I was no longer going to church.
And how did they take that? I’m sure they prayed over it, but they allowed me to not go to church, so I... Read more

Why is the Abortion Rate Declining?
Over the most recent decade for which data are available (2001–2011), the overall U.S. abortion rate, calculated as the annual number of abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age (15 to 44), has dropped, continuing a trend that first appeared in 1980. The decline has been steeper since 1990, with a brief plateau in the middle of the past decade. The 2011 rate for the nation is the lowest since 1973.

What does ‘pro-life’ even mean if you do nothing for the voiceless?



t0jEBUFI_LU75UAfNLGsBRvi1RVekMQHXh19C9Fpuj7c9zA08Ts16hC3aO2iaJjq-Ox8dDXTm9WD5qg_JbRon0uizYZtUd3hAta6kPjd7k9S3d-l=s0-d-e1-ftThe following comes from an Aug. 29 email from the Survivors of the American Holocaust.
Picture a busy street in Los Angeles or Washington D.C.  Men and women rush by, distracted.  People hurry along, heels click on the pavement, taxi cabs fly by.  Everyone has somewhere to be, some place to go.  Unconcerned that one third of this generation is gone, they go about their daily lives unaware that abortion affects them.
Suddenly, a 14 year-old girl drops on the pavement and curls into the fetal position.  A young man kneels to chalk her outline on the sidewalk.  Then another young person drops.  And another.  In moments, dozens of people have collapsed.  Others follow behind draping blood-red silk over their motionless bodies.  The crime scene has been staged.  All at once, the hidden holocaust is revealed.  People stare.  The world can’t pretend anymore.  Seeing these activists represent the forty-two million murdered annually across the globe, forces them to look abortion in the face and see it for the crime that it is.
This demonstration isn’t purely educational, it is powerful. And it’s just one example of pro-life activism.
At the International ProLife Youth Conference, you’ll have the opportunity participate in events like these.  We’ll teach you how to become an effective abolitionist.  You’ll learn how to run toward the cries of injustice and rescue those being lead to slaughter.  You’ll be encouraged by international speakers, community and student activists, religious leaders and young people, like yourself.  What unites them?  They are abortion abolitionists.  You’ll hear countless pro-life methods and testimonials.  The IPYC’s visionaries are passionate about equipping you to make a difference.
Slavery wasn’t abolished because of rising awareness. Nazism didn’t fall because society began to discuss it.  And the killing of millions of preborn human beings won’t end because we simply claim to be pro-life.   Wemust RISE UP if we wish to abolish this atrocity.  We must RESIST APATHY.  We must RUN TOWARD THE CRIES OF INJUSTICE. Take action with us this November and become the generation that abolishes abortion!
