Kansas Governor and former United States Senator Sam Brownback wrote "JESUS+MARY" on his talking points for a major pro-life bill that he signed into law on Friday.
He had written "JESUS+MARY" at the top of the page and "a culture of life" scribbled farther down on the front page, according to The Associated Press. more >>
Much like the shooting death of Trayvon Martin and the massacre of school children in Newtown, Conn., the horrific accounts of beheadings of hundreds of newborn babies described during the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell could have political implications beyond the trial itself. Here are three issues that may become part of the public debate because of the events at Gosnell's abortion clinic.
Obama's Position on Abortion
The trial serves as a reminder of President Barack Obama's contentious history regarding legislation that makes the killing of babies born alive, even if marked for abortion, a crime – the very crime that Gosnell is accused of committing. more >>
The American Center for Law and Justice has rejected Planned Parenthood's explanation of its comments about killing infants after they have been born, saying that the "clarification" the organization issued came only after it received media scrutiny.
"What's clear is that Planned Parenthood in Florida clearly articulated what they believe: that Florida should have the 'right' to do what Gosnell did -- kill a child after it's born, if the mother and doctor agree. The Planned Parenthood follow-up 'clarification' came only after their abhorrent position received media attention and publicity," Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the ACLJ, told The Christian Post via email.
Last month, Alisa LaPolt Snow of the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates argued that the fate of a child that is born after a failed abortion should be in the hands of the mother and the doctor. more >>
Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, has set their sights on college-aged women – preying on them in their moments of crisis and panic. We must expose Planned Parenthood as the big abortion business that they are -- and show young people just how Planned Parenthood is profiting off of them.
According to research Students for Life of America published last June, a majority of young people do not even know Planned Parenthood performs abortions, and often have a "favorable" view of the abortion Goliath.
This generation is opposed to abortion. Every poll confirms this fact. But when Planned Parenthood presents itself in the media and on campus, they never mention the dirty word "abortion" or their corrupt business model. That's how they get their positive ratings from young people and lure them in. more >>
In a week where a terrorist attack in Boston reminds us once again of the value of each human life, another story, from Philadelphia, regarding human life, has gone woefully under reported.
The trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell began on March 18th. He is currently on trial for the murder of seven babies that managed to slip past the execution's blade and live – for a short time, at least. His specialty was late-term abortions. He is also being charged with the death of one mother.
The grand jury report was released in January of 2011. The details are almost beyond belief. According to the report, Dr. Gosnell relegated his performance of late term abortions of particularly mature babies to Sundays. On that day, the clinic was closed and he only needed one assistant – his wife. more >>
The Florida House of Representatives Thursday passed a bill, 71-44, that would make it a crime for abortion providers to knowingly provide an abortion to a customer seeking to abort their fetus because of his or her race or gender. Some Democratic lawmakers walked out of the House chambers in protest as the bill was debated.
The bill, H.B. 845, would require abortion providers to sign an affidavit for each customer confirming that she is not seeking an abortion because of the race or gender of her fetus. Anyone who knowingly performs or "actively participates" in a race or gender-selective abortion could be charged with a third-degree felony, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison. Fines could also be imposed for not reporting incidents of race or gender-selective abortions.
"This wickedness of destroying human babies because they are not the chosen sex or chosen race must be brought to an end in our state," said Rep. Charles Van Zant, the bill's lead sponsor, according to Bruce Schreiner of The Associated Press. more >>
