The final two "house of horrors" abortion clinic employees who testified against Kermit Gosnell in the deaths of one patient and three babies killed at his West Philadelphia facility have been sentenced.
The sentencing for the last two of Gosnell's nine employees came just a month after the largest-ever crowdfunding campaign for a film raised over $2.2 million to make a made-for-TV movie about the abortion clinic, which was left unregulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Human Services for 17 years.
Lynda Williams, 45, Gosnell's acting phlebotomist at the Women's Medical Society abortion clinic, was sentenced to serve five to 10 years in prison on two counts of third-degree murder on June 26 by Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Benjamin Lerner. Williams' final sentence was reduced to two and-a-half years in prison. more >>
Connecticut's liberal Sen. Richard Blumenthal wants no one to have to worry about aborting unborn children late in pregnancy, very late. He favors abortion at any time prior to birth. It's not clear yet whether he would vote to deny federal protection to newborns that survive an attempted abortion. Blumenthal was not in the Senate when that bill passed. Barack Obama was in the Illinois Senate when that state's Infant Born-Alive Bill was killed. Then-Sen. Obama made sure that bill never got to the Governor's desk.
We should know what Sen. Blumenthal wants. He wants no protections at all for mothers or their unborn children. No waiting periods. No ultra-sound images, especially no ultra-sound. Why?
As liberal columnist Joe Klein has written in TIME Magazine, "ultra-sound has made it impossible to deny that that thing in the womb is a human being." Easy for you to say, Joe Klein! You are not running for public office and seeking campaign cash from liberal donors. Liberal politicians do the impossible every day. Richard Blumenthal denies that "that thing" is a human being. His bill treats that thing as nothing. It simply does not exist in his vocabulary. It is a choice, nothing more. more >>
Pro-Life organizations have expressed cautious relief after the U.S. Senate failed to vote in favor of ending debate on a bill meant to counter the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision.
Known as S. 2578, if enacted the bill would have compelled businesses like the Oklahoma-based Hobby Lobby Inc. to provide all FDA approved birth control methods despite the owner's religious objections to paying for drugs that could cause an abortion.
When S. 2578 was brought to a cloture vote Wednesday, it failed to get the necessary 60 votes to have debate ended and an up-or-down vote be given by the Senate. more >>
"You're a racist f--ing male that doesn't stand for women's rights!," screamed a pro-abortion activists at young men leading a peaceful pro-life demonstration in downtown Columbus on July 9, 2014. A YouTube video captures the irate abortion supporter verbally attacking Seth Drayer, Created Equal's Director of Training, saying, "No uterus. No right to talk about it."
If you are against abortion or tax-payer funded contraception, then you are waging a so-called "War on Women." No right to talk about it. Men should stay out of women's business, they say. This is a major falsehood that liberals constantly tell men. But as Christians and future husbands and fathers, women need men to engage in the "war on women" debate.
Guys, here's why. more >>
WASHINGTON – The idea that businesses cannot have religious liberty protections because they are not individuals or nonprofits is "total bunk," Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Hatch explained that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was sponsored by him back in 1993, was meant for everyone, including business owners.
"[RFRA was] meant to protect everybody and businesses are important as well. If we can impose corrupt or wrong rules on businesses, that would spread corrupt or wrong rules throughout the country," said Hatch. more >>
Dr. Willie Parker, a Washington, D.C.-based abortionist who claims to be a Christian, says he now regrets not performing abortions in the first 12 years of his medical career. Parker threw his support Tuesday behind a bill called the Women's Health Protection Act that would make it difficult for states to regulate abortion clinics.
Parker, who works at the Family Planning Associates Medical Group, an abortion clinic in Chicago, Illinois, also practices in Mississippi, where a law regulating abortion providers went into effect this month, and will likely shut down the state's sole abortion clinic, Jackson Women's Health Organization.
On Tuesday, Parker testified in support of the WHPA introduced by Sens. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, and Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisconsin, at a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and suggested that Mississippi is the frontline of a war against abortion in the United States. more >>
