Poll: 56% Take Pro-Life Abortion Position, 80% Want More Limits
As the United States is weeks away from marking the tragic 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on demand throughout pregnancy, new polling data shows 80 percent of Americans want more limits on abortions.
The survey also shows a majority take one of three pro-life positions on abortion, opposing 99 percent or 100% of all abortions done annually in the United States. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/08/poll-56-take-pro-life-abortion-position-80-want-more-limits/
Stop Funding Planned Parenthood, Does 1 Abortion Every 94 Seconds
A leading pro-life members of Congress who is behind legislation to revoke taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business is not happy about the new annual report it released. Planned Parenthood s numbers reveal it does one abortion every 94 seconds.
Representative Diane Black, a Tennessee Republican, said, Planned Parenthood s annual report, showing the organization had provided a record number of abortions during fiscal year 2011-2012, indicates her bill to de-fund it needs to be approved by the House of Representatives. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/08/stop-funding-planned-parenthood-does-1-abortion-every-94-seconds/
92% of Pregnant Women at Planned Parenthood Get Abortions
Yesterday, LifeNews broke the story about the new annual report the Planned Parenthood abortion business released, showing it did a record number of abortions during 2011-2012.
Today, the Susan B. Anthony List broke some of the figures down further. They show 92 percent of pregnant women going to Planned Parenthood get abortions while a handful get prenatal support or adoption referrals. Although Planned Parenthood likes to talk about getting hundreds of millions in federal funding for family planning, the numbers show abortions are up while contraception services are down. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/08/92-of-pregnant-women-at-planned-parenthood-get-abortions/
Shocking Photos Show Disgusting Conditions at Abortion Clinic
A local television station is running shocking photos of the disgusting conditions at a newly-closed abortion clinic in Michigan.
As LifeNews reported earlier this month, the Muskegon Fire Department has posted closure notices on the Women s Medical Services in Muskegon, Michigan, and boarded up the abortion clinic until further notice. We ran photos showing the closure notice, dated December 26, 2012. One of the clinic s doors was boarded up with a plywood panel. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/08/shocking-photos-show-disgusting-conditions-at-abortion-clinic/
British Court May Force Mentally Disabled Woman to Have Abortion
A team of doctors in the United Kingdom are seeking an urgent ruling from the Court of Protection allowing them to forcibly abort the child of a woman they deem unfit to make the decision herself.
The woman, whose name has been withheld, has sickle cell disease, and she has already suffered from multiple strokes due to the condition. Her doctors think that allowing the woman s pregnancy to continue may cause further complications and could potentially endanger her life. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/08/british-court-may-force-mentally-disabled-woman-to-have-abortion/
Pope Benedict Criticizes Efforts to Legalize Abortions
Although clearly a pro-choice advocate, Kate Pickert in the January 14 Time Magazine cover story, What Choice? admits that the pro-choice cause is in crisis.
In the article, Pickert says there is a rebellion going on within the abortion rights cause, pitting younger feminists against the old-time leaders who were in their 20 s and 30 s when the battle began with Roe. But now, she says, these leaders are out of touch with the problem of state laws that curtail abortion while polls are showing abortion acceptance dwindling. The younger women want to take control of the fight, and believe they can do better than the old guard. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/08/pope-benedict-criticizes-efforts-to-legalize-abortions/
Today s Women: Sorry Feminists, We re Not Supporting Abortion
The cover story in the January 14 issue of Time magazine has stirred a lot of conversation on both sides of the abortion aisle.
In particular it has brought to the fore a generational rift within the pro-abortion movement.
The article noted the rift as one of several problems the movement is facing. But in the article s wake young feminists have apparently felt freed to launch an open revolt. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/08/todays-women-sorry-feminists-were-not-supporting-abortion/

Euthanasia Movement Promotes Kill Me Living Will in Australia
The euthanasia movement rarely tells the full truth about its objectives. Activists pretend that their goal is only to legalize voluntary terminations, or in the USA, to restrict killing to the already dying whose suffering a very elastic term in euthanasia advocacy cannot otherwise be controlled. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/08/euthanasia-movement-promotes-kill-me-living-will-in-australia/
