Obama Says His Pro-Abortion Supporters are “Doing God’s Work” At an event in Washington last night, President Barack Obama told his liberal, pro-abortion supporters who are member of his political group Organizing for Action that they are “Doing God’s Work.”
“The work you are doing is God’s work,” Obama told supporters, according to reporters who attended the event. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/obama-says-his-pro-abortion-supporters-are-doing-gods-work/
Couple Get Five Kids in Nine Months: Adopts Triplets Then Pregnant With TwinWhen God blesses, sometimes He blesses abundantly — and that is certainly the case for a couple from Oklahoma. Sarah and Andy Justice of Tulsa, Oklahoma had just adopted triplets when she found out she was pregnant with twins.

That’s five children in the span of nine months, but the Justices tell the Christian Post they have no regrets. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/couple-get-five-kids-in-nine-months-adopts-triplets-then-pregnant-with-twins/
Patricia Heaton’s Gutsy Tweet About Margaret Sanger and Black AbortionsHollywood is known for its liberal ideology and agenda, and few actors stand out as outspokenly pro-life. Celebrities who publicly oppose abortion are diamonds in the rough, and one of these — who has been an audacious pro-lifer for years — is Everybody Loves Raymond’s Patricia Heaton.
Once in a while, Heaton takes to Twitter to voice her pro-life convictions, like when she tweeted multiple times during the Gosnell trial in April about the horrors of his practice. She even called out network television for its silence on the matter (undeterred by the fact that she is employed by one such network — ABC — where she currently stars on its primetime comedy, The Middle). http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/patricia-heatons-gutsy-tweet-about-margaret-sanger-and-black-abortions/

Whites Outnumber Blacks in Mississippi But 72% of Aborted Babies Are Black
The pro-life movement has pointed out for years that the abortion industry, including the Planned Parenthood abortion business, targets black women and Hispanics. The way in which it targets black women in more apparent today after a news report shows almost three-fourths of abortions in Mississippi, where a majority of residents are white, are done on black babies.
According to a Life Issues Institute study, 79 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion centers are located in minority neighborhoods. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/ 25/south-carolina-house-panel-passes-bill-to-ban-abortions-after-20-weeks/


Man Comes Back to Life After Being Pronounced Clinically Dead for 45 Minutes A man who doctors pronounced clinically dead came back to life 45 minutes after his death had been called. Brian Miller’s coming back to life is a reminder of the problems of declaring patients dead too quickly and either removing their life support or stopping further medical treatment.
brianmillerThis is also a cautionary tale for patients who are organ donors, where doctors may too quickly began cutting up patients who are not really dead to begin harvesting their organs for donations. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/man-comes-back-to-life-after-being-pronounced-clinically-dead-for-45-minutes/
Planned Parenthood Told Them Their Abortion Was Risk-Free, Now They Can’t Have ChildrenThere’s a group of women Planned Parenthood doesn’t want to talk about. In fact, they won’t even admit they exist. They’ll gladly usher vulnerable women into their abortion chambers. But when those very same women experience physical or psychological effects of their abortion, they’re considered an anomaly.
They don’t fit the fa├žade the abortion industry has carefully built for public consumption. According to the Planned Parenthood website, there are no long-term risks associated with abortion. They reject any link between abortion and breast cancer. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/planned-parenthood-told-them-their-abortion-was-risk-free-now-they-cant-have-children/

How Can an Unborn Baby be a “Parasite” When Having a Baby Helps Women Avoid Cancer?Today’s blog post serves as a place to compile sources for the assertions in the graphic on the right.
As an initial matter, let me note that it is not Secular Pro-Life’s position that unborn children must “earn their keep” to have the right to life. (In the same vein, the fact that infants sleep and poop and don’t do much in the way of making immediate contributions to society does not justify infanticide.) This is simply an attack on the pro-choice movement’s misuse of the dehumanizing term “parasite.”
So, moving right along: http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/how-can-an-unborn-baby-be-a-parasite-when-having-a-baby-helps-women-avoid-cancer/
West Virginia House Passes Bill Banning Abortions After 20 Weeks On a 79-17 vote Tuesday night, the West Virginia state House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.B. 4588), a measure to ban abortions after 20 weeks based on scientific evidence that unborn children can feel pain during an abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/west-virginia-house-passes-bill-banning-abortions-after-20-weeks/
Abortionist-Population Controller Dies Who Wanted to Sterilize Everyone She Could Former Florida Abortion Clinic owner, Joyce Tarnow died February 21, 2014 at the age of 74 years old, after a two year battle with cancer. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/abortionist-population-controller-dies-who-wanted-to-sterilize-everyone-she-could/
Canadian Medical Groups Condemn Ultrasound Use Leading to Sex-Selection Abortions A new joint policy statement from the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada and the Canadian Association of Radiologists calls for “a halt on using ultrasound for the sole purpose of determining the sex of a fetus,” according to Sharon Kirkey of Postmedia News. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/23/canadian-medical-groups-condemns-ultrasound-use-leading-to-sex-selection-abortions/

Abortion Groups Give Wendy Davis Hundreds of Thousands in Campaign Donations Wendy Davis’s sole claim to fame as a Democratic candidate for governor in Texas is her abortion advocacy and she’s been rewarded for it by her best friends at Planned Parenthood and Emily’s List, two top pro-abortion groups, who have given her hundreds of thousans of dollars. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/abortion-groups-give-wendy-davis-hundreds-of-thousands-in-campaign-donations/
An Extra Dose of Love: A Brother’s Story of Trisomy 21 My youngest sister, Eva, just turned 12 this past December 31st. Each year, my parents invite friends and family over to celebrate the new year and the birth of our favorite family member at our New Years “Eva” party. Now I know, we aren’t supposed to have favorites, and our large family would seem to make unanimous consent impossible. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/25/an-extra-dose-o f-love-a-brothers-story-of-trisomy-21/
Louisiana Bill Protects Women From Abortion Practitioners Without Admitting Privileges Yesterday afternoon, the Unsafe Abortion Protection Act (H.B.388), authored by Representative Katrina Jackson (D-Monroe), was filed in the Louisiana Legislature. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/26/louisiana-bill-protects-women-from-abortion-practitioners-without-admitting-privileges/
