Take five minutes now to stop PBS pushing late-term abortion doc ‘After Tiller’

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.

Abortion activists leaping on Zika virus fears to push for more abortions

Feb. 8, 2016 (LiveActionNews) -- Brazil is considered to be one of the most pro-life countries in the world. Abortion is completely illegal there, unless the mother’s life is in danger or the pregnancy is a result of rape. This has been a thorn in the sides of abortion activists, so it’s no surprise that they’re jumping on the fear surrounding the Zika virus. For most people, the virus only causes mild symptoms, but in pregnant women, it can cause their babies to be born with microcephaly, a birth defect that causes babies to have developmental disabilities and small heads.

“Imagine you’re pregnant already, and then you discover you have this virus, and then you discover that this virus causes this condition in the fetus,” said Anu Kumar, executive vice president of the global abortion rights non-profit IPAS. “Then you’re faced with the decision of, what do you want to do with this?”

Kumar, speaking at the International Conference on Family Planning in Bali, Indonesia, said the Zika situation highlights the public health problems that severely restrictive abortion laws cause. An estimated 47,000 women a year die from unsafe abortion complications.

“That’s exactly why these laws should be liberalized,” she said, “because unsafe abortions lead to injury, lead to death, lead to women having unspeakable horror inflicted on them. And why, when we have the technology to do this safely?”

Got that? Having a baby born with a disability is an “unspeakable horror” and women should kill their babies to avoid having that “horror” inflicted upon them. It would be interesting to see how parents of children born with microcephaly would react to hearing their children being described as “unspeakable horrors.” (That’s certainly not how this family sees it.)

And Brazil isn’t the only country feeling the pressure. The Center for Reproductive Rights is also lobbying the El Salvadoran government to loosen their abortion laws, although so far, officials have not responded to the petition.

Here’s the problem, though: no one has the right to decide whose life is worth living and whose is not. Just because a baby may be born with a birth defect doesn’t mean that the baby should be handed a death sentence. Every life has value and dignity — something that abortion advocates, sadly, don’t understand. This is another situation where they show the mentality of “better dead than.” Better dead than poor. Better dead than disabled. Better dead than unloved. If life doesn’t hand you a perfect beginning, then you’re simply better off dead. After all, why put a baby through hardship? Why make parents feel even an iota of stress or fear or grief?

Abortion doesn’t make those things go away, though. Life is hard regardless of what kind of beginning someone might have. There is no escaping fear or grief or stress or pain. And we can never guarantee that someone will not become disabled or die early. So why should we deprive innocent preborn children of life? Because we think it will be too hard on us? Because some people think lives with disabilities aren’t worth living? Sorry, abortion activists, but you don’t get to make those decisions. Plain and simple: you don’t get to play God.

Mom sues doctors for $14.5 million for ‘wrongful birth’ of baby with cystic fibrosis

Calvin Freiburger

Feb. 8, 2016 (LiveActionNews) -- Kerrie Evans of Gardiner, Montana, has filed a $14.5 million lawsuit against Park Clinic in Livingston, Billings Clinic’s Bozeman OB/GYN, nurse practitioner Peggy Scanson, and Dr. William Peters, arguing that she would have gotten an abortion if they had diagnosed her six-year-old daughter’s severe cystic fibrosis in utero.

Evans and her husband contend they were concerned about cystic fibrosis going into the pregnancy and planned to abort if a blood test showed the disease, and because they did not they now face $300,000 yearly medical bills for her.

In response, the defendants claim that Evans only discussed Down Syndrome with them during pregnancy and failed to either fully read the information they provided her or request a cystic fibrosis test. Therefore, they maintain, that they did meet their obligation to provide informed consent.

They further noted that “wrongful birth” is not recognized as a legal cause of action in Montana, meaning that the suit “would set a dangerous precedent.” However, District Judge Mike Salvagni rejected their motion to dismiss, deciding the suit was unlikely to invite a flood of similar claims.

7 hard pro-life questions for Donald Trump

Murray Vasser

Feb. 8, 2016 (LiveActionNews) -- Donald Trump insists that he is pro-life. However, like many in the pro-life movement, I am skeptical of both Trump’s understanding of and commitment to the pro-life cause. Here are seven questions I would like to ask the GOP candidate to clear up all the confusion:

1) While discussing ISIS, you argued that America must “take out their families.” How is the deliberate assassination of children compatible with the high regard for human life which is the hallmark of the pro-life movement?

2) In a 2015 interview, you were asked if abortion was murder. You replied, “It depends when, it depends when.” In your opinion, at what point in a pregnancy does the human fetus acquire human rights?

3) In the past, you have bragged about your affairs with married women and made derogatory comments towards women which are, frankly, unfit to repeat. How is this attitude compatible with the pro-life concern for the dignity and well-being of women?

4) You recently stated that your sister, who argued against the partial-birth abortion ban, would make “one of the best” Supreme Court justices. Did you mean that?

5) Since your conversion to the pro-life cause, how much money have you donated to abortion supporting candidates?

6) You explained that you became pro-life after a couple you knew decided not to abort, and “the baby turned out to be a superstar.” On the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, you lamented the loss of the children who “never had the chance to enrich the culture of this nation.” Do you consider the abortion of a future “superstar” who will “enrich the culture” to be as tragic and unjust as the abortion of a child with Down syndrome?

7) While you expressed disgust over the grisly Planned Parenthood videosyou asserted that abortion is “actually a fairly small part of what they do.” You stated, “I’m sure they do some things … that are good for women,” and, “We have to look at the positive also.” If Planned Parenthood was caught on video slicing up toddlers and selling their pieces, would you still insist that we “look at the positive”?
