A day after an interview the mainstream media used to claim Pope Francis is backing down on the Catholic Churchs pro-life teachings, the Pope condemned abortion in strong terms, saying unborn babies are unjustly condemned when killed in abortions.
In the text of a message the Pope delivered to a group of Catholic doctors this morning, as distributed by the Vatican today, Pope Francis soundly condemned abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
In a year of record closures, two more abortion clinics have gone out of business. These two closures bring the tally of out-of-business abortion businesses to 44 so far this year.
Operation Rescue has confirmed that an abortionist who wore a butchers apron while injuring a woman during an abortion has closed his Cleveland, Ohio, abortion clinic and is moving out of state. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
The Republican-led House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution today to de-fund the Obamacare health care law that funds abortions and the Planned Parenthood abortion business with taxpayer dollars while keeping the federal government open.
Students for Life of America has a new video exposing the Planned Parenthood abortion business and giving them a new slogan that is more appropriate than anything the abortion giant has ever used: Abortion, No Matter What.
Given that 92% of pregnant women who go to Planned Parenthood get abortions, rather than birth support or adoption assistance, the slogan is fitting. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
A pro-life-run company in Pennsylvania is taking the pro-abortion HHS mandate to the Supreme Court with a simple request: tear down this mandate.
Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing a Pennsylvania family and its woodworking business asked the U.S. Supreme Court Thursday to hear its lawsuit against the Obama administrations abortion pill mandate, which could cost the family nearly $3 million per month in fines if it doesnt agree to live contrary to its Christian convictions. It is the first Supreme Court petition in a case challenging a direct ruling on the mandate. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Recently, the Christian Science Monitor published an op-ed by Elizabeth Jahr, in which she asserts pro-life groups funnel tremendous resources into a legal war against abortion in the US without providing adequate practical support for women to maintain pregnancies. Yet not being able to afford a child is one of the main reasons women have abortions.
Do we have any Tom Lehrer fans in the audience? I couldnt help but recall one of the satirists songs, The Old Dope Peddler, while reading Amanda Marcottes latest musings at Slate. The gag in the former is how Lehrer contrasts the titular drug dealers exploits with wholesome lyrics and friendly piano accompaniment, as if reminiscing about a Mayberry-esque community staple like the sheriff, mechanic, or barber.
The more we remove reproduction from the normal way of having babies, the more complicated things become. Now, a court is to decide what happens to embryos after a couple splitsas if they are mere property. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/

Scary Doctors: Physicians Want More Abortions And Paid For on Your Dime
You trust your doctor with your care. Those in the medical profession are supposed to be healers, not killers. However, there are so-called doctors whore more willing to advocate for the cause of abortion, than they are for your health. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
An intelligent young Christian once told me he did not know if elective abortion was wrong, even in the second trimester. He needed to do more research on the issue, he explained, because he did not want to make a decision based on emotion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
UNFPA Head Babatunde Osotimehin Praises Population Control in Asia
With an article published in a Vietnamese news outlet titled People-centered Development, Not Population Control Babatunde Osotimehin, head of UNFPA, suggests that population control is a thing of the past, a sad chapter in the history of humanity that will soon end, perhaps even in China. Or at least that would seem to be the gist of his message from the title of the article. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Happy Constitution Day! I dont know about you, but I rather enjoyed seeing the posts on my Facebook news feed celebrating the signing of the Constitution on Tuesday, 226 years ago. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
If you believe in the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death, its time to watch and pray for those at the end of life, not just the beginning. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
The stalwart pro-life governor of Texas, Rick Perry, minced no words on Friday when he addressed supporters of Texas Right to Life about abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
This week, an Taoiseach, Enda Kenny admitted that his TDs were castigated in their constituencies on the abortion bill. However, he said that the same politicians voted for abortion rather than be kicked out of the Fine Gael party. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
The term reproductive health seeped without fanfare into UN language in 1972 when it was adopted by Jose Barzelatto, the inaugural head of WHOs program on human reproduction. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Many people keep wondering and asking how the African Bishops feel about International agencies (like International Planned Parenthood Federation and Marie Stope International) who are inundating Africa with condoms & contraceptives and who are also persistently pushing and lobbying the African leaders to introduce and enact anti-life laws in Afric. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
