Woman Dies After Second-Trimester Abortion at Planned Parenthood
A young woman has died after having a second-trimester abortion at a Chicago-area Planned Parenthood clinic. Tonya Reaves, 24, died late Friday night, according to a local CBS television station, of hemorrhage, with a cervical dilation and evacuation, according to the medical examiner s office following an autopsy after the abortion that claimed her life.
CBS Chicago said Reaves died after the abortion she had at 18 S. Michigan Avenue Planned Parenthood facility. The woman was transported from the Loop Health Center Planned Parenthood abortion clinic to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 11:20 P.M. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/23/woman-dies-after-second-trimester-abortion-at-planned-parenthood/

Obama Campaign Targets Romney for Wanting Roe Overturned
The Obama campaign is targeting presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the battleground state of Virginia.
The Obama camp is running a series of billboards that highlight Romney s position favoring the reversal of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case that allowed unlimited abortion for any reason throughout pregnancy. The ad quotes Romney from a debate earlier this year, saying, Do I believe the Supreme Court should overturn Roe v. Wade? Yes, I do. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/23/obama-campaign-targets-romney-for-wanting-roe-overturned/
Woman Who Survived Colorado Theater Shooting Gives Birth
The Colorado theater shooter may have taken a dozen lives and injured dozens more in his rampage but he wasn t able to claim the life of one person an unborn child just days away from birth. However, the father is in serious medical condition and needs support.
According to an AP report, a pregnant woman who escaped the deadly shooting uninjured delivered her baby today as her wounded husband remains in critical condition in the hospital. Today, 21-year-old Katie Medley gave birth but her husband, 23-year-old Caleb Medley, was shot in the head and remains hospitalized. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/23/woman-who-survived-colorado-theater-shooting-gives-birth/
Father of Pro-Life Student Killed by Car Gives Moving Tribute
When euthanasia became a dirty word the Voluntary Euthanasia Society changed its name to Dignity in Dying in January 2006. In 2008 Conservative MP for Reigate Crispin Blunt (pictured) claimed responsibility for the move.
I claim responsibility for encouraging the Voluntary Euthanasia Society to change its name he exclaimed in a in a Westminster Hall Adjournment Debate on 11 November 2008. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/23/father-of-pro-life-student-killed-by-car-gives-moving-tribute/
President Obama s Covert Zeal Supporting Unlimited Abortion
Abraham Lincoln faced a similar problem in 1854 when he spoke of the covert zeal of President Franklin Pierce and Sen. Stephen A. Douglas for the spread of slavery. These leading Democrats never said they were in favor of slavery. They simply viewed the right of whites to choose slavery for blacks as a sacred principle of self-government. Lincoln abhorred this subterfuge.
President Obama doesn t talk about abortion much. He famously tried to avoid the question in 2008 when Pastor Rick Warren asked him what rights, if any, unborn children have. The answer to that question is above my pay grade, he said then. With his strong election victory, Barack Obama was promoted to the office where the buck stops, where such questions demand an answer. His answer has been clear: None. The unborn have no rights at any time, in any context. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/23/president-obamas-covert-zeal-supporting-unlimited-abortion/

Colorado Theater Shooting Reminds Us Human Life is Precious
Reminders of the Fall were all around us this weekend. Of course an entire nation mourned the massacre in Denver, but even more died anonymously in a horrific truck crash Sunday night in Texas.
The sports world waited to see the NCAA s verdict on Penn State s malice and neglect, and as Israelis once again counted the cost of terror, the International Olympic Committee rubbed salt in old wounds by refusing to acknowledge the Games greatest tragedy. And that s just the news from the headlines. As I tried to retreat from the news, I got a Facebook message telling me that a childhood friend was found unresponsive and rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery to repair damage caused by an aneurysm. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/23/colorado-theater-shooting-reminds-us-human-life-is-precious/

Polling Data Shows Next Generation Doesn t Endorse Abortion
This June, Students for Life of America released the results of a nationwide study, in which we surveyed 805 18-24 year-olds about the upcoming 2012 election, unconstitutional HHS Mandate, and abortion. We knew that a lot of folks tend to try to put young people in a neat little box when it comes to the issue of abortion, but, with this rising generation, we knew we had to shed some light into how they are really thinking and the changing of this debate. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/23/polling-data-shows-next-generation-doesnt-endorse-abortion/
