Branford High School administrators have blocked Students for Life of Branford from handing out information during lunch time, even though other student groups are allowed to do so.
The school's principal, Lee Panagoulias, and other school administrators told the six person pro-life club they were not allowed to have models of a fetus at their display table, could not hand out literature or invite others to join, and were only allowed to set up their display after school, according to Students for Life of America.
Other student clubs at the school are allowed to set up a display at lunch, hand out literature and invite others students to join their group. more >>
A bill that would ban most abortions 20 weeks after conception has passed the West Virginia Legislature and awaits the signature of the state governor.
Known as House Bill 4588, the West Virginia House of Delegates passed the proposed legislation Saturday.
"Except in the case of a medical emergency, no abortion may be performed or induced or be attempted to be performed or induced unless the physician performing or inducing it has first made a determination of the probable post fertilization age of the unborn child or relied upon such a determination made by another physician," reads HB 4588 in part. more >>
In the Left's never-ending effort to enable girls and women to have recreational sex without being "punished with a baby" (as President Obama put it in reference to his daughters awhile back), emergency contraception will now be less expensive and more accessible because of two new developments.
Instead of having to take two Plan B pills, a new single-dose version - referred to as Plan B One Step (PBOS) - has been rushed through approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA); further, a generic version - at roughly half the price of the original Plan B - can be purchased over the counter by anyone (even though the fine print stipulates that it is for women age 17 and older). So, anyone can go into any drug store and purchase a relatively inexpensive version (at $20 to $40) of a high-potency pill that used to be available only by prescription and under a doctor's supervision.
Lots of folks are going to make a lot of money. The bad guys are going to have an easier time convincing girls to forego the condom. Girls and women are, once again, going to be the guinea pigs for a broad, general experiment in social engineering; it will be several years before we learn about the young girls whose bodies weren't able to handle such high-powered drugs in such a strong dosage. It won't be too long before some vulnerable girls are victims of unscrupulous guys who exploit them and then hand them a PBOS as they walk out the door. Even if a girl's body can take the chemical assault, what of her emotions, her sense of self-worth, when he doesn't call afterwards and it dawns on her that he wasn't really attracted to "her" … just sex. more >>
What do you do when you have no confidence that the party that holds to many of your core values will actually stand up for those values if put back in power? In the aftermath of CPAC, that's the predicament I find myself in when it comes to the Republican Party, and I'm sure I don't speak for myself alone.
Had I been a supporter of Barack Obama and had I been in agreement with the most recent Democratic Party Platform, I would have cause for jubilation.
After all, Mr. Obama held true to his historic, radical, pro-abortion position, one that was celebrated in shocking fashion at the DNC last year and one that was reinforced with the president's infamous "Thank you, Planned Parenthood, and God bless you." Not even the Kermit Gosnell trial could take the wind out of this administration's devotion to the slaughter of the unborn. more >>
A federal judge in Maryland on Friday struck down a county law that forced pro-life pregnancy counselors to advise women against using their services. The law mandated a signage that the county health department advises them to speak with a licensed medical professional.
The permanent injunction granted by the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland prohibits the Montgomery legislation known as "forced speech" law from being enforced effective immediately, according to Alliance Defending Freedom, which represented the Centro Tepeyac center in the case.
The law, which was struck down in its entirety, was crafted in a way that it didn't apply to pro-abortion centers, such as Planned Parenthood, even if counseling is offered there by non-medical persons, ADF said in a statement. more >>
Billionaire investor and philanthropist Warren Buffett, listed as the fourth richest person in the world by Forbes this year, has given millions of dollars to abortion groups in the U.S. and abroad, including one organization that facilitated the abortion of 1.2 million babies in 2013.
A National Review report noted that while Buffett, 83, isn't well-known as an abortion advocate, The Buffett Foundation - renamed the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation in 2004 after his wife's death – has given more money to support the pro-choice movement in the U.S. than some better known supporters.
His foundation, according to the report, gave more than $115 million to pro-choice groups in 2011, and a significant portion of that giving went toward abortions. more >>
