Every so often abortion activists cause a stir with prayers for abortion. The worst may have been when President Barack Obama asked God to bless the Planned Parenthood abortion business at the end of a speech this year.
Now, from Iowa comes this: Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates join abortion activists in prayer for increased abortion access. We pray for women whove been made afraid of their own power by their paternalistic religion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
A new report from a top international human rights group indicates a Chinese woman has come forward to share the nightmarish details of her forced abortion at nine months of pregnancy.
According to a Chinese news report, Lili Zeng from Youshan Borough, Xinfeng County, Guangdong Province in China, was forcibly aborted at nine months. Her baby boy was born alive and died in her arms. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
As Congress and several states grapple with bills that would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, babies like Baby Faith in New Jersey are surviving very premature births.
A tragic story comes out of Pennsylvania this week as authorities seek to understand the motive behind the brutal murder of a newborn baby boy.
A 26-year-old Pennsylvania woman could face the death penalty after she gave birth to a baby boy in the restroom of a sports bar in Allentown, suffocated him, then stuffed his body in a toilet tank before returning to the bar to finish watching a wrestling match in her bloodied clothes. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/

Rebecca Kiessling knows what its like to be targeted by abortion. She is one of the rare people to escape an abortion after her birthmother became pregnant following a sexual assault.
But Kiessling was targeted more directly today when she testified before local lawmakers in support of a pro-life resolution. Laughing at her story of how she survived an abortion that too frequently claims the lives of unborn children conceived in rape, they passed a resolution supporting abortions in cases of rape or incest as an in your face gesture. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Listen to Planned Parenthood and providing abortions is not only a public service, it is such a small part of all that it does that it hardly merits mentioning. Its only those mean old pro-liferssuch as Dr. Randall K. OBannon, NRLCs Director of Educationwho insist on making the insignificant (abortion makes up only 3% of PPFAs services) seem significant.
When a colleague sent me an article titled How To Convince A Girl To Get An Abortion, I was pretty sure it was satire. I mean, abortion activists have been increasingly less apologetic about their penchant for feticide, academics have been kowtowing to the idea of forced fatherhood, and abortion contracts may become a thing, but seriously?
The Planned Parenthood abortion business has closed another one of its abortion clinics in Texas this time in San Angelo. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Pro-Life Movement Dominating the Abortion Debate on Pinterest
Abortion might seem an odd search term for Pinterest. But since this explosive, relatively new social media site is increasingly becoming an addictive place to share opinions, beliefs, and ideas in the form of images we ought to check in and see just how abortion is doing. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Marriage equality. Racial equality. Gender equality. Everywhere theres equality. Its hard to go about even one day in life without hearing a story in which one member (or class) of our species is accusing another member (or class) of our species of unequal treatment. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Government Shouldnt Tell Doctors, Patients How to Discuss End of Life Decisions
I wrote at some length a few weeks ago in the Weekly Standard about a Senate bill to pay doctors to discuss end-of-life care with patients. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
In a statement set to be published in the September issue of the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 100 ob-gyns condemn new state restrictions on abortion as a political regression.. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/

Obamas Legacy: Pro-Abortion President or Catalyst for Pro-Life Action?. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
The foundation affiliated with billionaire businessman and former presidential candidate Ross Perot has given $1 million to the Texas-based Planned Parenthood abortion business that was found to have engaged in millions in Medicaid fraud. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Arizona Leads Nation in Number of Abortion Clinics Closed
A recently published report by the Huffington Post shows that Arizona leads the nation in the number of abortion clinics that have either shutdown or stopped providing abortion procedure services altogether. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
The Albuquerque city clerk has certified that more than enough valid signatures have been verified on a legislative petition submitted by pro-life groups that would create a city ordinance banning abortions after 20 weeks, or 5 months of pregnancy, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The matter has been forwarded to the city council for further action. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
It would appear that Politico would prefer to see a Democrat win the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Thursday morning, after hearing public testimony, the Department of State Health Services Council refused to vote on new rules that would instruct how abortion facilities are to adhere to portions of the recently passed House Bill 2the Pro-Life omnibus bill that passed in the special session of the 83rd Legislature. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
