The proposal "to recognize in law the right of men to have as many wives as they like was cowardly and will be a backward step for Kenya if it becomes law," Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop Eliud Wabukala said.
The Kalamazoo Health Center did not report an abortion that sent a woman to the emergency room last April, and the state is doing nothing to hold the abortionist accountable, according to a local woman.
ABC, CBS and NBC news should sit down and write George Clooney a thank you note for the timing of his engagement rumor. Oh, the networks weren’t ever going to report the horrific news that an Oregon plant burned aborted babies to fuel homes. But now they can credibly say they were busy with real, important news – the kind about celebrities. The macabre story from Oregon, coming on the heels of a similar report about the fate of aborted babies in the U.K., might have garnered a mention on a slow news week, but we’re talking about George Clooney! And talk they did: for a total […]
Harvard AIDS Expert Says Pope is Correct on Condom Distribution Making AIDS Worse by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry Westen March 19, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Edward C. Green, director of the AIDS Prevention Research Project at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, has said that the evidence confirms that the Pope is correct in his assessment that condom distribution exacerbates the problem of AIDS. “The pope is correct,” Green told National Review Online Wednesday, “or put it a better way, the best evidence we have supports the pope’s comments.” “There is,” Green added, “a consistent association shown by our best […]
A Catholic-affiliated hospital system is allowing four local abortionists to maintain admitting privileges at one of its hospitals, as well as permitting one of them to perform sterilizations, organizers told LifeSiteNews.
“The failure of the leaders of U.S. cancer ‘charities’ and leftist women’s groups to blow the whistle about the [abortion-breast cancer] link shows what frauds they are,” said Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer.
Spike Lee and Phelim McAleer are both film-makers who’ve both achieved something unique: each has successfully raised $1.4 million to finance his movie through crowdfunding – a campaign seeking donations from the public. But Spike Lee is famous and established, with a net worth of $40 million. Phelim McAleer isn’t. So it’s a bit odd that the networks took note when Lee (a famous, if not household name) did it, but not when McAleer overcame greater odds to reach that number. Well, it would be odd, except that McAleer is trying to fund a movie about abortionist Kermit Gosnell – America’s “most […]

Apologizing San Francisco Archbishop Has History of “mistakes” Related to Homosexuality by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry Westen SAN FRANCISCO, October 12, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Nearly a week after being filmed giving communion to two gay activists dressed as ‘nuns’ Archbishop George H. Niederauer has apologized in a column for the diocesan Catholic San Francisco newspaper. In his column, the San Francisco Archbishop repeats statements previously given to LifeSiteNews.com about not being aware of any disruption, nor recognizing any “mock religious garb.” (see coverage: https://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2007/oct/07101004.html ) However, the column adds that he was not aware during the Mass that those “strangely dressed […]
“This prayer time is designed to bring us all together with one purpose: To pray for every facet of our movement that we might see a culture of life restored in America,” says Brian Fisher of Online for Life.
San Francisco Archbishop Responds After Caught on Video Giving Communion to Gay Men Dressed as Nuns by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry Westen SAN FRANCISCO, October 10, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Last Sunday, October 7, San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer said Mass at a Catholic Church in the heart of the gay Castro district. Most Holy Redeemer Parish has a lamentable reputation of having caved in to demands of homosexual activists. One group of homosexual activists which until recently operated regularly out of the parish was called “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence”, men who wear makeup and dress as Catholic nuns. Archbishop Niederauer was […]
Council of Europe Rejects Euthanasia – Vatican Praises Move by LifeSiteNews.com STRASBOURG, May 2, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – On April 27th, during the plenary session in Strasbourg, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) rejected a draft resolution on “assistance to patients at the end of life”, a report submitted by Dick Marty (Switzerland, LDR). Euro-fam, a pro-life group which monitors the European Parliament reports that at the end of a long debate, parliamentarians voted on 71 amendments. Once amended, the text was overwhelmingly rejected by the Assembly. 138 voted against, 26 in favour and 5 abstained. During the […]
Catholic tradition regards use of contraceptives as gravely wrong. Still, we must consider whether uncertainty about their abortive effects reduces whatever additional gravity abortifacient contraceptives involves—and whether their use is tantamount to surgical abortion.
The 15 Conclusions of the Workshop on the Prevention of Abortion by LifeSiteNews.com Ecuadorian Federation of Societies of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FESGO) April 17, 2008 – Enrique Sotomayor Hospital Guyaquil, Ecuador Translated by Matthew Hoffman 1. The members of the Ecuadorian Federation of Societies of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FESGO) are not in agreement with any form of induced abortion; life is inviolable from the moment of conception. The elimination of an innocent human being is always unacceptable, ethically and medically speaking. 2. We are against induced abortion because it is not only an illegal act, but a criminal one, as […]
Many have Asked: Is Obama the Anti-Christ? – Famed Novelist Michael O’Brien Answers by LifeSiteNews.com (Editor’s Note: The following are excerpts from the latest newsletter of Canadian Catholic novelist Michael O’Brien best known for his apocalyptic novel Father Elijah.) November 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – I am receiving letters from American subscribers and visitors to my studio website asking me some rather surprising questions about Barack Obama, related to one of my novels … Then, a few weeks ago a German friend called me immediately after Obama’s speech in Berlin, to say that the presidential candidate had mesmerized the crowds, and […]
Vatican Cardinal Ends Debate: No Communion for Pro-Abortion Politicians or Rainbow Sashers by John-Henry Westen VATICAN CITY, February 16, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze, the top Vatican Cardinal in charge of the sacraments of the Catholic Church has made it plain in an on-camera interview with EWTN that pro-abortion politicians may not be admitted to Holy Communion. A February 11 EWTN broadcast of the news program, World Over Live, with host Raymond Arroyo, featured an interview with Arinze, the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. The interview covered a wide range […]
Former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson converted to the pro-life position after assisting during an ultrasound-guided abortion, and having her eyes opened to the reality of abortion. This is a letter that she wrote to the baby that she watched die during that abortion.
The Hemlock Society Compassion and Choices has no shame. Now, they have bootstrapped assisted suicide onto the recent success of LGBT issues. From one of its ubiquitous emails: 1994 was a different time in America. A vicious plague was erasing entire communities across America and hope was scarce. The dark specter of HIV/AIDS loomed large as treatment options were unreliable, and many research programs were starved for funding. Too many in the LGBT community in the later stages of this disease–seeing their friends and loved ones torn apart by it–turned to desperate acts of violence to escape the inevitable, and often excruciating pain […]
In a recent survey of 40 countries, Pew found that only seven percent of Americans are morally opposed to contraceptives. Over half of respondents said using contraceptives is morally acceptable. While not surprising, this level of support is still gravely concerning, especially since the survey also found that 36 percent of Americans don't even consider contraception to be a moral issue. Over at the Washington Post Wonk Blog, Christopher Ingraham took advantage of the survey results to make a plug for — you guessed it — the Obama administration's contraception/abortifacient/sterilization mandate (emphasis added): Contraception is one area where Democrats and […]
Doctors and nurses who have a moral objection to prescribing ‘contraceptives’ which act by killing human embryos are to be barred from receiving diplomas in sexual and reproductive health even if they undertake the necessary training according to new guidelines. Under new rules issued by the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (FSRH) earlier this year these doctors and nurses are also to be barred from membership of the faculty and from specialty training. The FSRH is a faculty of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists established on the 26th March 1993 as the Faculty of Family Planning and […]
Israeli Pro-Life Organization Warns of Demographic Threat to Nation’s Survival by LifeSiteNews.com By Thaddeus M. Baklinski JERUSALEM, September 8, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – EFRAT, an Israeli pro-life organization that works with women contemplating abortion by providing emotional and material support, is warning that the demographic implications of abortion in the nation are the greatest danger to Israel today. “Israel has lost more than one and a half million Jewish children to abortion since 1948. In a country of about 5.5 million Jews this number has great demographic significance. Imagine how much stronger Israel would have been today with one million more […]
Leading UK AIDS Organisation Website Instructs Gay Men in “Extreme” Sexual and Drug Practices by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White LONDON, April 9, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Terrence Higgins Trust (THT), an organisation in the UK founded ostensibly to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, has set up a website giving graphic information and instruction to homosexual men interested in “extreme” sexual practices. The site, called “Hard Cell”, includes photos of male models involved in the various practices described, including “barebacking” – anal sex without condoms; “body mods” like branding, cutting and scarification; bondage and “breath control” […]
This is a compilation of my favorite quotes from the Vatican’s Cardinal Raymond Burke addressing Catholic media last month at the Rome conference of Alliance Defending Freedom. My favorite line: “Of supreme importance in an age which characterizes itself by its means of communication is the development and support of truly pro-life and pro-family media.” His remarks: First and Fundamental Proclamation of the Truth of Christ The first and most fundamental way of radiating the living truth which Our Lord Jesus communicates to us in His Mystical Body, the Church, is a strong witness to the inviolable dignity of all […]
The closing of a private abortion clinic in Fredericton, New Brunswick has caused hysterics among Canada’s abortion activists usually reserved for Parliamentary pro-life motions. Columns full of rhetorical questions that prove devastatingly stupid as soon as they’re answered have been filling Canadian newspapers. Anne Theriault, a “feminist blogger” for the Huffington Post, wrote a column called “If Fredericton’s Morgentaler Clinic Closes, Women Will Die.” “What century are we living in?” she howls. Well this one, Ms. Theriault. In which we have embryology, and ultrasound machines, and videos of babies growing inside the womb that neatly implode the idiotic “clump of cells” argument […]
I was returning home from giving a pro-life presentation in Omaha, Nebraska. Imagine my shock when I saw who I was sitting next to: late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart, on his way to abort babies in Maryland.
I’ve seen it again and again in my more than twenty years of opposing assisted suicide: the media promote suicide in the guise of reporting the news. Indeed, these days, it is almost a universal rule. Here’s the biased–both by what is reported and what isn’t–usual pattern: 1. Make sure the headline promotes assisted suicide, particularly important since many won’t read the story; 2. Introduce an ill person with terrifying disease–often ALS (motor neurone disease), the bloody flag of the euthanasia movement; 3. The patient just wants to die when a “line” is crossed; 4. But mean society won’t let doctors prescribe death, so he has to die in […]
In July 1949, the New England Journal of Medicine printed an article by Dr Leo Alexander titled 'Medical Science under Dictatorship'. In it, he explains what happens to science when it 'becomes subordinated to the guiding philosophy' of a political ideology. 'Irrespective of other ideologic trappings', he argues, the 'guiding philosophic principle of recent dictatorships' is to replace 'moral, ethical and religious values' with 'rational utility'. Alexander eloquently demonstrates how 'medical science in Nazi Germany collaborated with this Hegelian trend' and became the source of 'propaganda' which was 'highly effective in perverting public opinion and public conscience, in a remarkably short […]
During Holy Week last year, Relevant Radio’s Sheila Liaugminas interviewed Pro-Life Action League executive director Eric Scheidler about the Good Friday Way of the Cross for Victims of Abortion, which is being held again this year outside abortion clinics across the country. (See the list of locations here.) In the course of the wide-ranging interview, Eric also shared his thoughts about one particular Gospel passage that we as pro-lifers should spend some time reflecting on: I think that the guiding Gospel passage for me as a pro-life activist…is Jesus with the Samaritan woman [John 4:4-42]. Here is Our Lord stopping along the […]
Study: Homosexuals Twice as Likely to Seek Mental Health, Substance Abuse Treatment by LifeSiteNews.com By Thaddeus M. Baklinski August 18, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A study led by Susan Cochran and her team of researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, published in the open access journal BMC Psychiatry, reports that homosexuals seek treatment for mental health issues or substance abuse at a rate over two times higher than heterosexuals.

AIDS Rate 50 Times Higher in Homosexual Men: Center for Disease Control by LifeSiteNews.com By Patrick B. Craine ATLANTA, Georgia, August 24, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – An official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced the CDC’s estimate Monday that in the United States AIDS is fifty times more prevalent among men who have sex with men (‘MSM’) than the rest of the population. Dr. Amy Lansky revealed this statistic during a plenary session at the 2009 HIV Prevention Conference in Atlanta. The CDC had already revealed last year that approximately 53% of the estimated 56,300 new HIV […]
New Brunswick Government Continues to Oppose Morgentaler Abortion Funding by LifeSiteNews.com By Thaddeus M. Baklinski FREDERICTON, New Brunswick, October 4, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – David Alward, leader of the provincial Progressive Conservative party and premier-designate after last week’s landslide victory, said his government will continue to oppose funding of Henry Morgentaler’s private abortion facility in the province. “That was my position before,” Alward said in an interview with the Globe and Mail a day after the vote. “My position hasn’t changed.” New Brunswick is the only province in Canada with a private abortion facility owned and operated by arch-abortionist Henry Morgentaler […]
Bishop: Denying Communion to Obstinate Pro-Abortion Catholic Politicians “in many cases becomes the by LifeSiteNews.com By Steve JalsevacPhotos also by Steve Jalsevac Washington, D.C., January 31, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – LifeSiteNews counted 37 Catholic bishops, including four cardinals, participating in the March for Life events Jan. 20-22 in the U.S. capital. Many have been coming to the events for years to express their commitments on the issue. Strong support from the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has been a major factor in the large turnout of bishops and several hundred seminarians, priests and religious brothers and sisters every year. The bishops’ […]
UN POPULATION FUND RECEIVES $57 MIL FROM GATES by LifeSiteNews.com NEW YORK, Apr 5 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) announced yesterday a $57 million (US) grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. While the grant is reportedly to fight AIDS among African youth, UNFPA will use the funds for its reproductive health – abortion – agenda as well. The Foundation is funding a five-year initiative to expand national campaigns in Botswana, Ghana, Uganda and the United Republic of Tanzania that will educate youth about preventing HIV/AIDS and ensure that they can protect themselves. The government of […]
Homosexuals’ Complaint against Health Canada Lists Negative Health Consequences of Homosexual Lifest by LifeSiteNews.com By Thaddeus M. Baklinski May 14, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A group of homosexuals headed by Gens Hellquist, director of the Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition, has filed a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC), in which they detail the numerous statistics that prove the high-risk nature of the homosexual lifestyle. The group claims that Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada discriminate against the country’s homosexuals by not providing “equitable levels of programming supports based on needs when compared with programming supports from […]

Israel’s Health Committee Approves Human Cloning In Principle by LifeSiteNews.com HAIFA, March 12, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Israeli Health Ministry has given the go-ahead to cloning of human beings for experimentation. The Health Ministry committee decided to approve the experiments and is being criticized for going forward without consulting other bodies and without public debate on the controversial issue. In Israel, the Health Ministry delegates decisions regarding new genetic research involving human beings to the Helsinki Committee for Genetic Experiments on Human Subjects. Professor Yosef Itzkovitz, director of the women’s ward in Rambam Hospital, made a request to the committee […]
UK IVF Clinics Have Intentionally Killed over One Million Human Embryonic Children by LifeSiteNews.com By John Connolly LONDON, January 2, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Following a UK Parliamentary question, data from a government organization showed that over one million human embryonic children were killed in the UK in the past 14 years as ‘waste’ embryos from in vitro fertilization (IVF) processes. The acquired data showed that 2,137,924 embryonic humans were created using IVF between 1991 and 2005, but about 1.2m were never used. Scientists killed the embryos who were not deemed strong enough for implantation, and froze those not considered ‘waste’ […]
Study: HIV-positive Practicing Homosexual Men 9000% More Likely to Develop Anal Cancer by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry Westen LOS ANGELES, March 22, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – New research has again shown the grave danger of homosexual sex acts to the human body. The grave health risks associated with such dangerous sexual behaviours is one of the prime reasons why society as a whole should oppose homosexual acts, doctors have told LifeSiteNews.com under condition of anonymity. A study which appears in the February issue of the International Journal of STD & AIDS, has found that “HIV-positive men who have sex with men are […]
Physician Says Science of Medical Consequences of Homosexual Behaviour is Being Trumped by Political Agenda by LifeSiteNews.com WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pennsylvania, September 19, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – On Thursday, Zenit News published a lengthy interview with Dr. Rick Fitzgibbons regarding the serious medical consequences of homosexual behaviour that are being ignored, if not suppressed, during current public discussions on homosexuality. Dr. Fitzgibbons is a principal contributor to the Catholic Medical Association’s statement on “Homosexuality and Hope” and has spoken widely on the issue. Fitzgibbons indicates that recent historical changes in institutional views of homosexuality have not been helpful for those who have […]
Israel’s Chief Rabbis Issue National Letter Against Abortion by LifeSiteNews.com By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman JERUSALEM, January 5, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Israel’s two chief rabbis have stepped up a campaign against abortion they began two years ago, sending a letter to all rabbis on the government payroll that claims the deadly practice is delaying the coming of the messiah, according to Israeli news sources. Rabbis Shlomo Amar and Yona Metzger state in their letter that abortion in Israel is “a real epidemic, as tens of thousands of Jewish souls are being lost each year … In addition to the enormity of […]

After analyzing 25 earlier studies on sexual orientation and mental health, researchers, in a study published in the medical journal BMC Psychiatry, also found that the risk of suicide jumped over 200% if an individual had engaged in a homosexual lifestyle. These findings strongly support the results of […]
In Year of St. Paul Pro-Lifers, Toronto Archbishop Issue Call for Prayer for Morgentaler Conversion by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry Westen TORONTO, July 2, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a press conference today, Henry Morgentaler, Canada’s most notorious abortionist, accused the Catholic Church of stirring up violence against abortionists, while hostile reporters questioned Toronto Archbishop Thomas Collins on whether he was encouraging people to “yell and scream” about the conferral of the award on Morgentaler. However, while the pro-life movement is indeed outraged by Morgentaler being named to the Order of Canada, there has also been to call to pray for a […]
Editor's note: Paul Eagle, spokesman for Catholic Relief Services, provided this statement to LifeSiteNews in response to questions after Jhpiego, one of CRS' pro-abortion partners, received the UN Population Award. Thank you for your letting us know about the award to Jhpiego and for your interest in Catholic Relief Services. More than one million children in Kenya have been orphaned by AIDS-related illnesses and 6.1% of the adult population is living with HIV, along with 200,000 children living with HIV. Jhpiego and CRS partnered on a project in Nairobi, Kenya called Support and Assistance To Indigenous Implementing Agencies (SAIDIA). This […]
Cardinal McCarrick Continues to Conceal Rome’s Insistence that Pro-Abort Politicians Be Denied Commu by LifeSiteNews.com Part 1 By John-Henry Westen CORNWALL, October 23, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Last week, recently-retired Washington Cardinal Theodore McCarrick delivered an address to the annual Plenary Assembly of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops. McCarrick, who headed up the US Bishops Conference task force on Catholics in Political Life, spoke mainly of his experiences on the task force and of the central debate it explored – namely that of whether or not to deny Holy Communion to Catholic politicians who reject Church teachings on central issues […]
Rep. Tiahrt: With Tax-Funded Abortions Obama Might Not Have Been Born by LifeSiteNews.com By Kathleen Gilbert WASHINGTON, D.C., July 20, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Kansas Rep. Todd Tiahrt touched off a controversy last Thursday when he urged Congress not to fund abortions in D.C., pointing out that had such funding existed years ago it could have snuffed out the African-American luminaries of today before they were born. The children aborted in Washington, D.C., correlating to the city’s community of poor on a whole, are disproportionately African-American. During his remarks the Kansas congressman called for an up-or-down vote in the House of […]
An informant from the Planned Parenthood Keystone affiliate in Pennsylvania has slipped me some fascinating new documents. Recall Pennsylvania is the home of infanticide abortionist Kermit Gosnell, convicted in May 2013 of first degree murder in the deaths of three babies and involuntary manslaughter of a patient. In reality, Gosnell likely “snipped” the spinal cords of hundreds if not thousands of babies he aborted alive over three decades but was never caught. The state simply stopped inspecting abortion clinics “for political reasons,” according to the Gosnell Grand Jury Report. Gosnell’s heinous crimes were only discovered by accident when the FBI raided his clinic for writing illegal drug prescriptions. Republican Gov. Tom Corbett began righting the wrongs by firing […]
Tony Blair’s spin doctor Alistair Campbell famously said that the Labour government didn’t ‘do God’ but the Prime Minister’s Easter address to church leaders has him trending on twitter as #CameronJesus. Today he has called for Christians to be ‘unashamedly evangelical’. David Cameron’s pronouncements have sparked controversy and criticism from both sides of the political spectrum. Is the astronomical rise of charity food banks a consequence of the Coalition government’s welfare policy creating a new class urban poor? Is the exodus of traditional Tory voters to UKIP linked to Cameron embracing same sex marriage? What would Jesus, who had a […]
Monica Miller, PhD, Director of Citizens for a Pro-life Society, has sparked conversation recently within pro-life activist circles, asking us to reevaluate which photos of abortion victims we display in their necessary role of helping end legalized abortion. Miller is one of the few pro-lifers who has actually retrieved aborted babies from the trash and photographed their remains. Many of Miller’s thoughts on this subject are taken from her September 2013 New Oxford Review article, available for $1.50 or by going CPL’s homepage. This post highlights some of Miller’s points with the goal to prompt discussion and new thinking on this important topic. […]
Two More Women’s Deaths Linked to RU-486 by LifeSiteNews.com By Kathleen Gilbert ATLANTA, Georgia, October 4, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Two more deaths have been linked to use of the abortion drug RU-486, according to doctors at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Pro-life leaders are warning that countless more women could stand threatened now that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the drug ella, which is similar to RU-486, as an “emergency contraceptive.” Elissa Meites, Suzanne Zane, and Carolyn Gould of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention detailed the deaths in a letter to the […]
May God have mercy on those “ardent practicing Catholics,” peddling in the evils of abortion, contraception, euthanasia, and homosexuality, who are even now eating the fruit of the tree of life while in their current state of misery.
“Some families are disappointed that the USCCB did not address in more detail the concerns with troublesome role models and organizations that Girl Scouts routinely promotes to girls," said a Girl Scouts critic.
Pro embryo-destructive research activists are often so irrational. They claim than an embryo isn’t an embryo but merely a “bunch of cells.” Well, for the reductionist minded, so are they. They claim that an embryo is no different than the cells you kill when you brush your teeth. But embryos are organisms and mouth cells are not. They claim that embryos aren’t really human because they don’t have toes and fingers. Yes! A scientist actually said that to me in a debate! Idiotic. And they say that only USA religionists care about embryos, when in actuality, Germany (as just one example) […]
The UK media has reported the case of a third healthy elderly woman in the last several weeks having flown to Switzerland to be made dead. From the Express story: ANOTHER British woman has been helped to die at a Swiss suicide clinic because she had grown tired of life, the Sunday Express can reveal. The 99-year-old Londoner, who was not terminally ill or severely disabled, felt her time had come to an end. Geriatric depression is treatable, but never mind. Sigh. And get this: 3000 people die each year in the clinics. That’s nearly 10 each day! The deaths have once more […]
The ACLU filed a request earlier this week to enter an amicus curiae brief in support of the mandate, saying that while they support the free exercise of religion they see view the issue more as a matter of gender equality.
Earlier this year the Pro-Life Action League reported that notorious Chicago area abortionists Vinod and Vijay Goyal had recently sent a cold-call mailing [PDF] to local physicians inviting them to consider working at one of the husband-and-wife team’s six abortion clinics. The letter also tried to drum up business for the financially troubled Goyals. Their business has been down in recent years — which means their abortions have been down, reflecting a statewide trend across Illinois — and just this morning, we heard some great news: one of the Goyals’ abortion clinics, Forest View Medical Center in northwest suburban Des […]
Over Half of Italian Families Childless: Report by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White ROME, March 24, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A new report issued Tuesday has revealed that 53.4 per cent of Italian families have no children. The report said that 21.9 per cent of households have only one child and just 19 per cent have two. While mass immigration contributes to Italy’s population growth, the country’s rock-bottom fertility rate of 1.31 children born per woman has resulted in a largely childless and aging nation. The report was compiled by the Milan-based International Center for Family Studies that identified the reason for […]
Communist Cuba Goverment Seeks to Secure Homosexual “Right” to Adoption by LifeSiteNews.com HAVANA, Cuba, Jun 28, 2007 (CNA).- The Communist Party of Cuba has welcomed a plan to reform the country’s family laws to grant “full rights” to homosexual couples, including the adoption of children, allowing sex and identity changes for transsexuals, and in the long term, legalizing homosexual unions. The announcement was made by the director of the National Center for Sexual Education, Mariela Castro, during the 5th International Culture and Development Congress which was held in Havana. Castro, who is the daughter of interim president Raul Castro, said, […]
When you see a movement as unprincipled and ruthless as the gay lobby is, you must be clear that you have an enemy. The gay lobby is not your friend. Any friendliness from them is likely manipulation and subterfuge.
The redefinition of marriage and state policies on sexual orientation have created a climate of intolerance and intimidation for citizens who believe that marriage is the union of a man and a woman and that sexual relations are properly reserved for marriage.
News broke April 13 of a gruesome find in a Pleasant Grove, Utah, garage: the remains of a dead newborn infant stuffed inside a box. The owner of the home, Darren West, called police, who found six more babies, also hidden inside boxes. Of the seven, one was apparently a stillbirth, but the rest were murdered after delivery. West’s estranged wife, Megan Huntsman, readily admitted to killing her children. According to the AP: Huntsman, 39, told police she either strangled or suffocated them immediately after they were born. She wrapped their bodies in a towel or a shirt, put them […]
Judge Allows Driehaus Case against Susan B. Anthony List to Move Forward by LifeSiteNews.com By Peter J. Smith COLUMBUS, Ohio, October 26, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A federal judge has declined Susan B. Anthony List’s request to rule on the constitutionality of an Ohio election law that makes it a criminal offense to make a false statement about a political candidate during an election. U.S. Rep. Steve Driehaus (OH-1) has been locked in a battle with the SBA List over four billboards the national pro-life campaign group wanted to erect in his district.

Prominent U.S. pro-family activist Peter LaBarbera, who was detained by the Canadian Border Services Agency before being allowed into Canada on appeal, was arrested late Monday on the University of Regina's campus.
You may (or may not!) have noticed I’ve been out-of-pocket a few days. I was in Dublin, Ireland, where I was asked to speak at the National Convention for Life 2014 on April 12. The daylong event was more than sold out. Many came who hadn’t registered, and although there were dozens of chairs added, some of the 600 attendees still had to stand. The life issue is huge in Ireland, which was abortion free until the tragic death in 2012 of Savita Halappanavar and her 17-wk-old baby, which abortion zealots exploited and lied about to push through a law legalizing abortion for medical emergencies and suicidal ideation last year.

A tip of the hat to ABC 13 News which broadcasts in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia and especially to reporter Lucy Bustamente for her terrific story about Ella and Anna Springer. The twins were born February 21 at 32 weeks and are doing fine. However, no one could be sure there would be a happy outcome when Crystal Springer, then 22 weeks pregnant, learned that her babies had a condition known as twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. TTTS is rare and potentially lethal, and occurs only in identical twins. In TTTS one sibling, called the recipient, takes too much blood […]
Canadian Family Groups Praise Conservative Government Budget For Ending Marriage ‘Penalty’ by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry Westen OTTAWA, March 30, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Both the Institute for Marriage and the Family Canada (IMFC), and REAL Women Canada have praised the recently released federal Conservative budget. IMFC specifically praised the “end of the marriage penalty”. They explained, “For many years, family groups have worked to eliminate the disparity of the tax deductible amount that spouses could claim on their income tax filing. The government is now increasing the spousal and other amounts to the same level as the basic personal amount.” REAL […]
Major medical organizations . . . as well as U.S. government policy, consider a pregnancy to have begun only when the entire process of conception is complete, which is to say after the fertilized egg has implanted in the lining of the uterus.

Another 40 Days for Life campaign is now complete, and we’re still counting the blessings God has provided! More of our local campaign leaders will be sending in their reports soon … but so far, we are aware of … 547 babies whose lives have been spared from abortion during this campaign! And as always, those are only the ones we know about. Here are some of those stories. ——————————————————- EL PASO, TEXAS ——————————————————- “Exciting news from the sidewalk!” said one of the El Paso volunteers. “A woman rejects abortion! “ When the woman arrived with her sister, there was […]
FLAHERTY DEFENDS PRO-LIFE STAND IN STATEMENTS TO MEDIA by LifeSiteNews.com TORONTO, February 11, 2002 (LSN.ca) – Ontario Finance Minister and candidate for PC Ontario leader, Jim Flaherty, shocked reporters Friday with straightforward answers about his pro-life convictions. Flaherty faced questions on abortion at a news conference intended to announce his platform on crime. “You’re asking me what do I believe in? I’m pro-life. I always have been. I don’t anticipate ever changing that view.” Media questioned Flaherty on abortion following the release of the Campaign Life Coalition February newsletter which urged pro-lifers to become involved in the leadership election. The […]
South Korea: Lowest Birthrate in the World by LifeSiteNews.com By Peter J. Smith SEOUL, August 28, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – South Korea now claims the lowest birthrate in the world according to South Korea’s National Statistical Office, which confirms population data just released by an independent study. According to the Korean Herald, the National Statistical Office (NSO) has announced that the South Korea’s total fertility rate dropped to 1.08 last year, and reports the number of newborns has also dropped nearly 8 percent to 438,000. The fertility rate is the lowest in the world, and broke South Korea’s 2004 record of […]
There have been 88 abortion workers who have had a change of heart and left their jobs during 40 Days for Life campaigns. Many of these workers leave during the last two weeks of the campaign … and today, we ask for prayers for one abortionist who is struggling with his conscience. A prayer volunteer has spoken to one of the abortionists at a facility where the 40 Days for Life vigil is in progress. I’m keeping the location confidential for now. They’ve had several conversations, and the volunteer says the man has told him, “I can’t do this anymore. […]
China Admits to Sale of Organs from Prisoners by LifeSiteNews.com By Terry Vanderheyden BEIJING, December 5, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Chinese officials have admitted to selling the organs of executed prisoners to foreign transplant recipients. Deputy Health Minister Huang Jiefu admitted that the practice is common, while promising to change the policy. “We want to push for regulations on organ transplants to standardise the management of the supply of organs from executed prisoners and tidy up the medical market,” Huang said, as reported by the UK’s Times on Line. A liver sells to a foreign recipient for approximately $41,000 USD, the […]
Every time a picture of a dead fetus shows up in someone’s mailbox (put there by anti-abortion activists such as ourselves, of course), it’s Rally ‘Round the Mass Grave over on Parliament Hill. Last week, we started the newest installment of our “Face the Children” Project, placing postcards in the mailboxes of Hamilton Mountain NDP MP Chris Charlton which featured her face next to a dismembered pre-born child and the banal, factual statement: “MP Chris Charlton Supports Abortion.” Which she does. Pro-abortion politicians, though, very much dislike it when dead fetuses refuse to stay in the trash can/bio-hazard bin/incinerator where […]
The Journal of Critical Care Medicine has published a statement by the Belgian Society of Critical Care Medicine giving ICU docs the right to kill patients–even though euthanasia in the country is supposed to only be consensual. Under the document, futile care impositions of withdrawing or withholding care are up to the medical team–whatever a patient or family may want. Moreover, in such cases, doctors are allowed to kill! From the statement (my emphasis) : This statement paper, developed by members of the Belgian Society of Intensive Care Medicine Council, is not about giving analgesics or sedative agents to combat pain or agitation, nor […]
The 40 Days for Life campaigns in the United Kingdom continue to get media attention. However, much of it is less than complimentary. Even the headlines reflect the abortion industry’s claim that vigil participants “harass” their clients. Of course, a picture is worth a thousand words – and the pictures always show the harassment claim is a pure fabrication. Robert Colquhoun, our international outreach director, takes a look at a couple of UK campaigns today. ——————————————————- LONDON, ENGLAND ——————————————————- First of all, please watch this brief video (above) on behalf of the 40 Days for Life vigil in London’s Ealing […]
66 British Babies Survived Abortion – All Were Left to Die Without Medical Aid by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White LONDON, February 4, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In line with similar revelations in Canada and the US as well as previous UK reports, a government report has shown that babies who survive abortion attempts in the UK are often left to die. According to the fine print of a government report, at least 66 infants survived NHS-funded abortion attempts in one year alone. According to the report, by the Confidential Enquiry into Maternal and Child Health (CEMACH), about half of the surviving […]
The recordings of a 911 call and a dispatcher’s ambulance call reveal Planned Parenthood’s diligence—but only when it comes to protecting their business from public scrutiny. On Saturday, January 18, 2014, an ambulance appeared at the huge Planned Parenthood facility in Aurora, Illinois, during the Pro-Life Action League’s monthly protest there. I caught the incident on camera, as did volunteers with the Live Pro-Life youth group. The recordings were later obtained with help from the Thomas More Society through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. 911 Operator Rebukes Planned Parenthood Staffer The ambulance arrived at approximately 9:40 a.m. Shortly […]
HOUSTON, TX, April 9, 2014 (OperationRescue.org) — In response to a Freedom of Information Act request, Operation Rescue has received documents that indicate Douglas Karpen’s Texas Ambulatory Surgical Center in Houston, Texas, has not been inspected since 2010, despite supposed investigations last year into allegations that Karpen killed babies born alive during failed illegal late-term abortions. Operation Rescue also received a one-page document that indicated a routine licensing inspection was conducted at Karpen’s second Houston abortion clinic, Aaron Women’s Center, on March 13, 2013. The contents of that report were completely redacted. The Aaron Women’s Center inspection took place two […]
Essence Magazine has made it no secret that the nation’s largest abortion chain, Planned Parenthood, is its ally. The black media outlet has been given the Margaret Sanger Award multiple times for promoting abortion. Back in 2010-2011, Planned Parenthood was desperate to defend its territory in urban America after we launched our TooManyAborted.com campaigns and other urban pro-life/pro-adoption efforts emerged to expose the abortion giant. Coming to Big Abortion’s rescue, Essence co-sponsored a Bloggers and Journalists Conference, held at Planned Parenthood’s own offices. They met to strategize how to combat the truth about abortion’s impact in the black community. And […]
An out-of-state special interest group has once again moved into California seeking to push assisted suicide legislation. Despite failed legislative efforts this year in New Hampshire, Connecticut and Massachusetts, Compassion & Choices, formerly the Hemlock Society, began a roll-out of online advertisements aimed directly at Californians. This same group sponsored California legislation in 1999, 2005 and 2007 which were all defeated with bipartisan opposition. Assisted suicide has long been opposed by disability rights organization across California and nationally. “If calculating dollars and cents, it does not take an economist to realize the frightening prospect that assisted suicide is for […]
If there’s a 40 Days for Life campaign going on, I’m either visiting a local vigil … getting ready to travel to one … or just getting home from one. Today, I’m at home. But yes, that only means there will be another trip before Day 40! Here’s a look at some of my recent stops in Ohio and South Carolina. ——————————————————- COLUMBUS, OHIO ——————————————————- The abortion center in Columbus is a father and son operation. And they do not like 40 Days for Life. In fact, they covered the windows so there is no way for patients to see […]
Since the law of Canada does not recognize a human embryo or fetus as a legal person possessing rights, and the majority of Canadians supposedly support a woman’s right to choose whether to continue a pregnancy or not, the pre-born has been declared a persona non grata.
According to Merriam-Webster, “feminism” is defined in one of two general ways. First, “the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities.” Second, as “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.” This may have been the foundation upon which feminism was based. But it has become increasingly clear that this is not what so-called “feminists” are fighting for in America today. I could cite the easy examples — the horrible treatment women like Margaret Thatcher, Sarah Palin, Laura Ingraham, and Michelle Malkin, among many others, have seen from supposed feminists for not […]
Pope Supports Excommunication for Pro-Abortion Politicians – “Incompatible with Receiving Communion” by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry Westen ROME, May 9, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A reporter aboard the Alitalia plane chartered to transport the Pope to Brazil Wednesday asked Pope Benedict XVI if he supported the Mexican bishops in their warning to politicians who supported legalizing abortion that they would face excommunication. The Pope responded saying, “Yes, this excommunication was not an arbitrary one but is allowed by Canon law which says that the killing of an innocent child is incompatible with receiving communion, which is receiving the body of Christ.” Referring […]
Fears that the Catholic baptism for the child of an Argentinean woman and her lesbian partner would amount to a stunt to promote Church acceptance of homosexuality were borne out Saturday at the Archdiocese of Cordoba’s cathedral.
The anti-life forces are back at the UN for the Forty-Seventh Commission on Population and Development, promoting their radical agenda of sexual and reproductive health rights, which include pushing for abortion as a human right. Luckily they are not alone as Campaign Life Coalition, along with other pro-life, pro-family groups have also returned to add an alternative voice to the debate and to make sure that the real issues do not get hijacked by the abortion agenda. Campaign Life Coalition has had an active presence at the UN for twenty years. At the behest of Pope John Paul II, CLC participated […]
The recent video promoting the legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide, as shown on Vision TV, tells the story of people who want to die by euthanasia. When considering these stories it appears that opposing “assisted death” is irrational, but this video was designed to promote the legalization of euthanasia and not to provide full information on all sides of the issue. To legalize euthanasia requires a change in the law to allow one group of people, most likely doctors, the right, in law, to kill another group of people in society. When the euthanasia law is […]
According to one researcher, one in four women will have an abortion by age 25. That makes college campuses a prime target for the abortion industry. But that also offers opportunities for college students to enthusiastically defend life … and help their peers who are considering abortion. It was in a college town that 40 Days for Life began. Planned Parenthood saw the 60,000 college students at Texas A&M and a local junior college as a huge market. But as you may know, their facility in College Station, Texas closed its doors forever last summer. So have faith! Steve Karlen, […]
South Wind Women’s Center, housed in the Wichita abortion clinic formerly operated by murdered late-term abortionist George Tiller, just marked its one-year anniversary by announcing how many babies it had killed since opening. An article strangely removed from the Wichita Eagle’s website (and from which all other news sources are quoting), but cached on the abortion mill’s website, shares the exciting news: South Wind Women’s Center says it provided about 1,200 abortions in its first year….. No clinic offered abortions in Wichita after Tiller died until South Wind opened. South Wind said it has seen a total of about 1,500 […]
LifeSiteNews readers often post dramatically informative comments. Some of them are exceptionally personal, as the lengthy, inspiring one from a recovered lesbian, for the purpose of helping others. The comment from a nurse regarding Terry Shiavo's death is chilling.
As part of a pro-life week in Rome starting with John Paul II's canonization and ending with the May 4th March for Life, LifeSiteNews will host a conference with pro-life leaders from across the globe.
A macroeconomics professor at Aquinas Catholic College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has a policy of making students answer cellphones that ring during class. But he had no idea what was coming when he told a girl in his class to answer her phone this past April 1. Since being posted two days ago, this video has racked up nearly 4 million views! Like us on Facebook!
The woman was transported to Brigham and Women’s hospital by ambulance and the report was completed at 11:10 a.m., nearly an hour and a half after the 911 call was first placed. There was no further information about the woman’s condition provided on the report.
Heading into the final week of this 40 Days for Life campaign, we now know of at least 437 babies whose mothers had a change of heart and rejected abortion. Praise God – He’s answering your prayers! Here are a couple of the stories that show Christ’s love in action. ——————————————————- MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA ——————————————————- A couple of sidewalk counselors approached a young woman outside the abortion center in Minneapolis, and she agreed to stop and talk. The counselors were both parents, and both greatly concerned that someone so young was arriving for an abortion. They told her about the many […]
In response to a state law passed in 2012, the Arizona Department of Health Services issued new rules in January specifying that the administration of the abortion drug RU-486 must follow FDA guidelines. This meant that come April 1 Arizona abortion clinics would only be able to dispense RU-486 up to 49 days (7 weeks) after the first day of a woman’s last period rather than up to 63 days (9 weeks), as is abortion industry practice. In addition, the dosage clinics currently gave of RU-486 (i.e., mifepristone, which kills the baby) and its chaser Cytotec (i.e., misoprostol, which flushes […]
Grove City College Psychologist Warren Throckmorton Blasted for Backpedaling on Homosexuality by LifeSiteNews.com By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman GROVE CITY, PENNSYLVANIA, March 19, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A psychologist teaching at the conservative-Evangelical Grove City College has been making waves by endorsing same-sex civil union legislation, and claiming that homosexuals can live “normal, natural and healthy” lives. In a recent interview with the Evangelical news service OneNewsNow (ONN), Dr. Warren Throckmorton reportedly said that “he opposes same-sex marriage but believes the Equal Protection Clause permits homosexual civil unions,” according to the news agency. “Throckmorton says he personally holds a ‘traditional view of […]
Mainstream Media Admits Anti-Family Bias: NBC to ‘Gay’ Activists: ‘Your Victories Are Our Victories’ by LifeSiteNews.com Commentary by Brian Fitzpatrick, senior editor at the Culture and Media Institute, a division of the Media Research Center WASHINGTON, August 27, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) just held its annual convention here in Washington D.C., attracting hundreds of journalists – and ringing endorsements – from virtually every major publication and broadcaster in the news media. In a full-page ad in the convention program, NBC Universal declared it is “proud to support NLGJA,” under the bold headline: “YOUR […]
French Homosexuals Plan “Kiss-In” at Notre Dame Cathedral by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White PARIS, February 10, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A French homosexualist organization will be staging a “kiss-in” at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this Sunday, St. Valentine’s day. Dozens of homosexuals are expected to turn up and kiss for five minutes at 2 p.m., after services at the cathedral. Organizer Arthur Vautier told a Paris homosexual magazine, Tetu, that the demonstration is meant to ” challenge the Church to question religion on the issue of love and marriage between gays and between lesbians.” “We were probably over a hundred […]
One Year Ago Today – The Miracle of Abby Johnson’s Conversion by LifeSiteNews.com Commentary by Shawn Carney, 40 Days for Life October 5, 2010 (40DaysforLife.com) – Today is October 5. It may be just another day to you, but not for me — and most certainly not for Abby Johnson.

We had been on opposite sides of the fence for years and at that moment we found ourselves together — her […]
US Human Trafficking Report Calls Canada “Transit and Destination” for Sexual Slavery Trade by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White WASHINGTON, July 23, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The US State Department has issued its 2007 report on human trafficking and has named four wealthy US Arab allies – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar – as among the worst offenders in failing to act to stop the international trade of human beings. The report listed Canada as a “tier 1” country, one that complies with the minimum standards of combating the trade. It describes Canada as “principally a transit and destination country” for women […]
The news report included footage of an angry neighbor of the school telling an unidentified man to stop putting abortion literature on his car, but Project Truth says the man isn’t involved with their group and that they never put literature on cars.
Talk about blatant bias. Although crowdfunded site Kickstarter refused the makers of the new Gosnell movie permission to fundraise, the same company hosted the recent “After Tiller” late-term abortionist documentary. Filmmaker Phelim McAleer along with wife Ann McElhinney and Magdalena Segieda aimed to raise $2.1 million in 45 days via Kickstarter for their Gosnell project, a scripted drama based on abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s trial and the grand jury report. When Kickstarter complained about the project’s description of Gosnell, the team turned instead to site Indiegogo. In the past, Kickstarter also made news for hosting the controversial “After Tiller” abortionist documentary. The McAleer team reacted to the irony, telling […]
Jesus said whenever two or three are gathered in His name, He is with them. Lately, it’s been whenever two or three with umbrellas are gathered. Sometimes it’s rain. Sometimes it’s snow.

As a van pulled into the driveway, the driver looked at them […]
Teen Youtube Sensation Lia Mills Proves Personhood of Unborn in New Video by LifeSiteNews.com By Patrick B. Craine TORONTO, Ontario, October 27, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – After proving the humanity of the unborn in an August video, teen pro-life orator Lia Mills has released a new video aiming to prove that the unborn are also “persons” by virtue of being human, as are other classes of humans who have been denied the status of ‘person’ in the past. The video, released Tuesday, comes out as Lia prepares to address the International Pro-Life Conference in Ottawa, taking place this Thursday through Saturday. […]
U.K. Commons Passes Sex-Ed Bill Forcing Schools to Promote Homosexuality, Abortion by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White LONDON, February 24, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The House of Commons voted 68 to 177 last night to pass third reading of the government’s sex-education bill in a vote that pro-life and pro-family advocates have called “deplorable.” Under the bill, schools, both religious and secular, will be required to give children information on homosexual relationships as well as artificial contraception and abortion. The government has confirmed that these programs will specifically include information for children on how to obtain abortions and contraceptives. Under current rules, […]
UK Sex Education Lobby Demands End to Parents’ Right to Opt-Out by LifeSiteNews.com By Thaddeus M. Baklinski UK, July 17, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The sex education lobby in the UK is putting pressure on the government to ban parents’ rights to withdraw their children from the controversial new sex education program that is slated to become a compulsory part of the National Curriculum from September 2011. Parents currently have the right to withdraw their children from sex education under the 1996 Education Act. In response to the Department for Children, Schools and Families’ request for public input on the sex […]
UK: Religious Schools May Not Teach Christian Sexual Morals “As if They Were Objectively True” by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White LONDON, March 5, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – After this April’s implementation of the Sexual Orientation Regulations (SOR’s), British religious schools may no longer be allowed to teach school children that the Christian viewpoint on sexual morality is “objectively true,” a government report says. The Joint Committee on Human Rights, made up of members from Parliament and the House of Lords, has issued a report on the implementation of the Regulations recommending that religious schools be required to modify their religious instruction […]
Second U.S. Bishop Says Vatican Letter on Pro-Abort Politicians Withheld from Bishops by LifeSiteNews.com ST. LOUIS, August 6, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In an exclusive interview with Barbara Kralis of CatholicOnline.org, St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke has become the second U.S. Bishop to admit that the letter from Vatican Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger intended to guide U.S. Bishops in their deliberations around the subject of communion and pro-abortion politicians was withheld from the bishops. The letter was sent to Washington Cardinal Theodore McCarrick who heads the U.S. Bishops’ task force studying the matter. On the Ratzinger memo which spelled out that obstinately […]
Clinton, Carter to Lead Faction of Baptists Away from Biblical Truth on Life and Family by LifeSiteNews.com Editorial By John-Henry Westen ATLANTA, January 11, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter needed their Southern Baptist credentials during their political years in order to boost their electoral appeal. Now the pair, who have both been publicly criticized in the past by Southern Baptist Convention leaders, are helping to move the denomination against life and family as they did the country. At the Carter Center in Atlanta Tuesday, Clinton and Carter were on hand to announce a 2008 Baptist […]
President Carter to Military: Get Rid of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Homosexual Policy by LifeSiteNews.com By Peter J. Smith WASHINGTON, D.C.

Steve Karlen, our North American outreach director, has topped off his gas tank and headed out to visit 40 Days for Life campaigns across Michigan. There are ten locations there … and Steve hopes to visit all of them. By the way, Michigan is one of the top US states as far as campaign numbers go.

It is not the illness or the prognosis that is the driver for euthanasia in any of these cases. It has more to do with the person themselves and how they decide to cope with their pending or existing situation.
This is John Mark McCord. He is remarkable for at least two reasons: 1) He was born extremely prematurely at 26 weeks, and after spending over 100 days in the hospital, survived against incredibly slim odds, and, 2) He can claim at least part of the responsibility for the passage of Texas SB2, the law that bans abortion after 20 weeks, and imposes a variety of stringent safety regulations on abortion clinics – a law that has forced numerous abortion clinics in the state to shut down. Even as Sen. Wendy Davis was capturing national media attention by filibustering in […]
Sweden Tightens Legal Noose on Homeschooling by LifeSiteNews.com By Peter J. Smith STOCKHOLM, July 8, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Sweden’s parliament gave a crushing blow to parental rights two weeks ago, passing a law that makes homeschooling legal only in “extraordinary circumstances,” reports the Home School Leal Defense Association (HSLDA). The law excludes religious or philosophical convictions as legitimate reasons for home education. The parliament passed what the HSLDA called a “sweeping” reform of the nation’s education system on June 22 in the form of a 1500 page bill, two pages of which addressed the topic of home education. The new […]
Nearly a year after the end of the trial, there’s still opposition to telling the Kermit Gosnell story. Fox News Contributor Kirsten Powers appeared on FNC’s “The Kelly File” April 1 to discuss how Kickstarter, a crowdfunding site, refused independent filmmaker Phelim McAleer and wife Ann McElhinney permission to fundraise for their new project: the Gosnell Movie. Powers explained that while a grand jury report accused abortionist Kermit Gosnell of “killing hundreds of babies,” Kickstarter only allowed McAleer’s Hat Tip Productions an account to fundraise “if they would remove references to babies being stabbed to death” in the project description. As a result, […]
The conference wrote to Catholic MPs this week after Portsmouth Bishop Philip Egan told LifeSiteNews that denying Communion to pro-abortion and pro-same-sex "marriage" politicians is an "act of mercy."
Last week the Telegraph reported that the remains of over 15,000 aborted babies have been incinerated as clinical waste over the past two years in the UK, with some of them having having been used in “waste-to-energy” plants that produce power for heat: One of the country’s leading hospitals, Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge, incinerated 797 babies below 13 weeks gestation at their own ‘waste to energy’ plant. The mothers were told the remains had been ‘cremated.’ In response to the news, the ever outspoken P.Z. Myers wrote the following: I’m not in the least disturbed by the fact that patients were […]

Head of Pontifical Academy for Life Should be Removed: Academy Members by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White, Rome correspondent ROME, February 17, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Five prominent members of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life are calling on the pope to remove Archbishop Rino Fisichella as the Academy’s president following their plenary meeting in Rome last week.

Virginia AG: State Can Force Abortion Clinics to Follow Same Standards as Hospitals by LifeSiteNews.com By Peter J. Smith RICHMOND, Virginia (LifeSiteNews.com) –Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli may be about to make abortion “safe, legal, and rare” – simply by making abortion clinics offer women the same standard of care required by other outpatient surgical facilities. Statistically speaking abortion is the number one surgical procedure that women undergo in the United States, and most abortions are performed in the first trimester. However in Virginia, as in many other places around the country, abortion facilities have often escaped the health and […]
Vatican Official Criticizes Nobel Prize for IVF Pioneer by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White ROME, October 5, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Vatican official and pro-life advocates have condemned the awarding of the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine to Dr. Robert Edwards, a pioneer of in vitro fertilization, whose work led to the birth of Louise Brown, the “first” IVF baby in 1978. Ignacio Carrasco de Paula, the recently appointed head of the Pontifical Academy for Life, said, speaking in a personal capacity, that the award ignores the ethical questions raised by artificial methods of reproduction.

Hey kids! I have an idea to cut health care costs: Let’s legalize assisted suicide and also ration care to the elderly and dying! Then we’ll still call it “choice.” Genius! Think that’s alarmist?
