Today, the Thomas More Society offered over 150 pages of analysis and evidence to the House Ways and Means Committee about repeated IRS harassment of pro-life organizations.
At the request of Congressman Aaron Schock (R-IL), Thomas More Society President Thomas Brejcha, Executive Director Peter Breen, and Special Counsel Sally Wagenmaker, prepared the legal memorandum with solid evidence of IRS harassment of pro-life organizations dating back to 2009. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
A leading pro-life group has put together a web site to expose Douglas Karpen. Like Kermit Gosnell, this Texas-based abortion practitioner kills unborn children who are born alive in a gruesome abortion-infanticide process.
This week, LifeNews exposed Douglas Karpen who, like the Philadelphia-based abortion practitioner, is also killing babies born alive after botched abortions. Unlike Gosnell, who killed babies by jamming medical scissors into their necks, at his Houston abortion clinic former employees of Karpen testify he goes one shocking step further, he kills the babies wit his bare hands by twisting their necks execution style. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Following the national outrage over Kermit Gosnell and his late-term abortions that were essentially infanticide, a pro-life Republican member of Congress is pushing legislation that would ban abortions on babies after 20 weeks of pregnancy nationwide.
The IRS will soon face more than controversy and Congressional hearings over its discrimination of pro-life and conservative groups. The federal agency will soon find itself in court.
Next week, the ACLJ will directly confront the IRS with a lawsuit representing dozens of victims of its discriminatory actions. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
As the IRS discrimination scandal grows, the head of the agency had an embarrassing moment this morning during a House hearing.
During intense questioning at a Congressional hearing this morning Rep. Aaron Schock asked acting commissioner Steven Miller if the IRS has asked a pro-life group about the content of its prayers. (see video at bottom). http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Judge Stops Arkansas Law Banning Abortions at 12 Weeks
A judge has issued an injunction preventing the enforcement of the strongest pro-life law on the books in the nation. The measure bans abortion after 12 weeks of pregnancy.
The state legislature had to override a gubernatorial veto to get the law in place. The Republican House voted 56-33 to override after the state Senate voted yesterday to do the same thing. The bill arrived on Beebes desk after clearing the Senate, 26-8, and the House, 68-20. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Kermit Gosnell may be behind bars, but his deadly legacy lives on.
