Earlier this week, LifeSiteNews reported that PBS is going to be showing the pro-abortion movie "After Tiller" next week. The movie highlights late-term abortion doctors with the intent of convincing the American people to sympathize with their worldview and difficulties.

Blogger Jill Stanek now reports that abortion supporters are promoting the documentary on Twitter and is urging pro-lifers to hack their hashtags #AbortionAccess and #AfterTiller starting at 2:00 Eastern.

From Stanek:

So please help us keep abortion radicals from peacefully promoting the excruciatingly painful blood bath of older preborn infants, never mind the extra danger their mothers face (hello, Jennifer Morbelli, killed last year by After Tiller star LeRoy Carhart), by tweeting about the reality of late-term abortion – there is so much to say about it – beginning at 2p EST. Use their hashtags #AbortionAccess and #AfterTiller.

PBS pulled in millions in U.S. federal taxpayer funding in 2012. That's in addition to more than $500 million state and federal taxpayer dollars that went to Planned Parenthood for, among other things, abortions and abortion-causing drugs and devices.

With five minutes today, you can help stop PBS from further entrenching the awfulness that is late-term abortion -- and abortion in general -- in the minds of the American people. Tweet to your family, friends, politicians, and the media this afternoon.

Hillary Clinton tells pro-abortion meeting she’s ‘embarrassed’ by U.S.

By Rebecca Oas Ph.D.

On Friday, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was a keynote speaker at a two-day conference of international feminists in New York.  During her remarks, she was asked whether the United States was likely to ratify the international treaty to combat discrimination against women, known as CEDAW.

The question prompted laughter from the audience, and then Clinton gave her answer:

Well, you would think the answer was likely…but honestly, as a senator who tried, as a secretary of state who tried, we have to change the Senate and try to get people who will support that, I mean, we submitted the disabilities treaty which you would have thought would have been pretty much…easy to pass.  It was modeled on the Americans with Disabilities, and even Bob Dole on the floor of the Senate couldn’t get the votes that were needed.  On CEDAW, we are just still struggling to try to get a favorable committee that would then pass it on to the floor and try to get the votes for it.”

 She went on to say:

 “The short answer is, not for lack of trying, but for absence of support, and we just have to keep working on it.  It is embarrassing, I mean, really, it’s embarrassing.”

Her embarrassment was shared by John Podesta, who was White House chief of staff during the Clinton administration, a co-chairman of President Obama’s transition team.  During his remarks on Thursday, the current chair of the liberal think tank Center for American Progress said:

We remain embarrassed that the United States Senate can’t ratify CEDAW, but we’re not done trying, we’ll keep at it.  There are a bunch of people who think that the United States can’t ratify anything these days, but we’re going to keep working at it.”

 Both Clinton and Podesta alluded to the repeated failure of the US Senate to ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which has been generally regarded as less controversial than CEDAW.

Robert Menendez, a Democratic Senator and Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, alluded to the US’s general reluctance to bind itself to UN treaties – inadvertently slighting the importance of the issues facing those with disabilities in the process.  In a November, 2013 interview on PBS, he said:

And then, finally, you know, if we cannot pass [CRPD] — this treaty is about as much as motherhood, apple pie as you can get — if we cannot pass this treaty, we’re not going to pass any treaties here on any substantive issues.”

Emphasis on “substantive” rather than “any.”

Given that former Secretary Clinton’s speech Friday was to a room full of leaders in the global pro-abortion movement, motherhood and apple pie probably weren’t in much demand there either.

Cruel and unusual death with dignity strikes again!

Wesley J. Smith
By Wesley Smith

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Belgium is opposed to capital punishment.

Belgium allows widespread euthanasia.

A rapist/murderer–who once would have been subject to execution–now wants to die.

He isn’t sick but wants euthanasia because he doesn’t want to spend life in prison.

The Belgian judiciary said, “Sure!”

So, a doctor will lethally inject a prisoner, but it won’t be considered capital punishment.

Cruel and unusual death with dignity strikes again!

Police officers oppose converting former abortion clinic into police station

Jill Stanek Jill Stanek Follow Jill
By Jill Stanek

rockford-abortion-3-hanging-rubber-chickenPolice officers in RockfordIllinois, are balking at the suggestion that a police station inhabit the building where a notorious abortion clinic was once located. Per WIFR.com, September 12:

Some Rockford Police officers are refusing to work in one of the buildings city leaders are considering using as a police station. The city wants the old Turner School on Broadway to be the new District Two headquarters.

“A number of people have an objection to the Turner School building because of what it represents and they have some serious moral objections to being in that building,” PBPA Union President Terry Peterson, said….

“That was definitely an issue that came up and it came up overwhelmingly,” Peterson said.

Peterson says he’s heard from more than a dozen officers who say they won’t work in that building because it used to be an abortion clinic.

“You know that’s ridiculous, it’s for the community. You’ve got to do what’s good for the area,” Bobby Dahlberg, owner of Bobby’s on Broadway, said….

“This police station is a win-win situation, you know. Jesus Christ himself can forgive anything right, so let’s go forward, not backwards,” Dahlberg said….

women's center montage-thumb-500x508The abortion clinic under consideration isn’t just any abortion clinic. It’s the infamous Northern Illinois Women’s Center, where the former owner once hung a rubber chicken by a noose in one window (photo above right), and a rubber chicken on a cross and blasphemous signs in others (photo right).

Deathscorts were known to cheer and do a happy dance when mothers drove in for abortions, and several times owner Wayne Webster put horse manure next to the public sidewalk to dissuade pro-life protesters and once traipsed around outside in a devil costume…

devil-thumb-500x749

After being closed in September 2011 by the Illinois Department of Public Health for health violations, Webster voluntarily shut down in January 2012 after 40 years of killing children… 40 years….

AR-301139875

The building has stood vacant since then.

I am of the belief that all abortion mills are satanic and inhabited by demons. Even when they’re closed and converted for good… even when “every nook and cranny of the place” has been exorcised… I don’t know… I still have trouble. That’s just me.

That said, there are demonic abortion clinics, and there are demonic abortion clinics on steroids. Three I recall making me want to jump out of my skin when I visited them were Gosnell’s clinic in PhiladelphiaLeRoy Carhart’s clinic in Nebraska, and this one.

I’m with the police. No way would I work in that place. And what of citizens who would also be forced to go there? Not just Christians and pro-lifers but others, as prolifecorner.com pointed out:

It is unjust to expect people who live in the Broadway neighborhood to go to a building for help where their own children may have been brutally and viciously killed in by abortion.

It is cruel and unusual punishment to force people who may be arrested to be taken and held in a building that may have been used to kill their own children.

Kevin Rilott of Rockford Pro-Life Initiative told me his group was contacted by both the police department and an alderman asking if they would object to the old abortion mill being purchased by the city. Initially the group said no, but when hearing of opposition by officers they changed their position. Here is their statement:women's center hiv-thumb-500x375

When the Rockford abortion mill was open not only did they celebrate the deaths of babies in the womb as a victory over God, they also mocked African Americans, put up signs ridiculing people with HIV, and spent years attacking Christians with brutally profane language both over their loud speakers and with signs in the windows. 

Many Rockford police officers heard and saw this on a weekly basis.  Can anyone blame them for not wanting to reward the owner of that building by having the city purchase it? No officer or citizen should be forced to enter a build where 100,000 children were murdered. No one should have to work in a place that publicly celebrated the pain, suffering and death they inflicted on babies and mothers.

A building that may once have been useful, and a historic landmark even, has been ruined by abortion. The blood of thousands of murdered children will forever cry out.
