Graphic Autopsy Images Released of Woman Dying From Legal Abortion
A pro-life group has released the graphic images today of a woman who was killed in a botched legal abortion. The group says they are some of the first images ever seen publicly of a woman who was brutalized by an abortion that claimed her life.
When 18-year-old Marla Cardamone was killed having an abortion at a Pennsylvania hospital, her mother, Deborah, vowed that she would never let her daughter be forgotten. Then, late last year, she approached the pro-life group Life Dynamics and asked the group s president Mark Crutcher to help her show the public the risks women face when they submit to abortions. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/09/graphic-autopsy-images-released-of-woman-dying-from-legal-abortion/
Pro-Abortion HHS Secretary Sebelius to Stay in Obama Admin
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/
Judge Dismisses Obama Admin Lawsuit Harassing Pro-Lifer
In a legal victory, a judge has stopped the Obama administration from targeting a peaceful pro-life advocate helping provide abortion alternatives to women heading to an abortion facility in Louisville, Kentucky.
In January 2010, David Hamilton was peacefully and lawfully handing literature to women entering EMW Surgical Center, an abortion clinic. He was not only interfered with illegally by abortion facility volunteers who locked arms to block him from talking to women, but he faced legal action from the Obama administration. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/09/judge-dismisses-obama-admin-lawsuit-harassing-pro-lifer/
Parents Video Remembers Triplets Who Died 4 Hours After Birth
The parents of a set of triplets who died just four hours their birth have released a precious video that is making the rounds on social media outlets.
Triplets Bernadette Mae, Adam Joseph and Christine Victoria born Thursday, November 15, 2012 to parents Jason and Marie Taylor. Jason and Marie held them in their arms for four hours until they died. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/09/parents-video-remembers-triplets-who-died-4-hours-after-birth/
Planned Parenthood Cut Breast Exams Long Before Komen Feud
Planned Parenthood recently released its latest annual report, showing its services and finances for 2011. As many pro-life advocates have noted, the report shows that Planned Parenthood is continuing to expand its abortion business, and its bottom line.
In addition, the report shows that Planned Parenthood s breast care services are on the decline. Planned Parenthood performed 108,223 fewer breast exams in 2011 than it did in 2010. From 2009 to 2011, the number of breast exams provided by Planned Parenthood has fallen by over twenty percent. The pattern is clear: Planned Parenthood clinics are cutting back on breast care. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/09/planned-parenthood-cut-breast-exams-long-before-komen-feud/
Planned Parenthood: $1.2 Billion Nonprofit, $542 Million From Govt
Americans often look with disdain on people who continually live off of government assistance. While those from left to right would generally concur that welfare programs can be helpful for those in times of crisis, the majority of people grow weary, and even angry, when people live off of Uncle Sam for years on end.
This reality makes it a mystery of why the tolerance of Planned Parenthood s dependence on Uncle Sam (and Uncle Obama). As we reported, Planned Parenthood s latest annual report for the 2011-2012 reporting year shows that abortions were up by a few thousand. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/09/planned-parenthood-1-2-billion-nonprofit-542-million-from-govt/
Judge Dismisses Colorado Christian University s HHS Mandate Lawsuit
A federal judge has dismissed the lawsuit a Christian college in Colorado filed against the HHS mandate, that compels religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions in their employee health care plans.
Evangelical liberal arts institution Colorado Christian University is suing on religious liberty grounds, like many Christian organizations and businesses have done. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/09/judge-dismisses-colorado-christian-universitys-hhs-mandate-lawsuit/
Obama Admin Should Stop Fines Until Supreme Court Weighs HHS Mandate
We are on the front lines when it comes to challenging the HHS mandate which requires employers to provide health insurance for employees that include paying for abortion-producing drugs or face still penalties including significant fines. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/09/obama-admin-should-stop-fines-until-supreme-court-weighs-hhs-mandate/
