Comedians Sarah Silverman and Zach Galifianakis, among others, will perform at an abortion fundraiser called "A Night of a Thousand Vaginas." Pro-life women activists claim that the event degrades women, rather than empowering their "reproductive rights."
"They're focusing on the bits and parts of the woman, and chosen to devalue the great worth of a woman in her entirety," Melissa Conway, director of external relations at Texas Right to Life, told The Christian Post in an interview on Tuesday. "It's unfortunate that the funds are being used in a threat to baby girls' lives as well," Conway added. "They glorify the right to choose the ending of one life for the benefit of the other."
The comedic fundraiser will take place in Los Angeles on Thursday, but the money will fund various abortion groups in Texas. The new reproductive rights group "A Is For" is hosting the event. On its website, the organization describes itself as an "ally and advocate for organizations working to protect reproductive rights." Its symbol, a scarlet letter "A," hearkens back to Hester Prynne, the "heroine" of Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel "The Scarlet Letter." more >>
This loving pastor's act of kindness is being used to help save the lives of babies who would otherwise be thrown in the garbage - literally. Unwanted infants abandoned in South Korea are SAVED by a loving pastor's idea to put a drop box for unwanted children near an orphanage. He believes that "God sent them here for a purpose." The drop box he is using is a part of the Jusarang Orphanage in South Korea.
He didn't think people would actually use the box and drop their baby inside but they did, and it has helped save hundreds of lives. Pastor Lee has sworn his commitment to the abandoned children, telling one mother of an abandoned child, "God, I will die for these children."
All It takes is just ONE person who really cares to help SAVE these beautiful children of God! more >>
As we approach the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision divining an absolute right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution, we would do well to pause and consider the impact of this monumental ruling and assess what it means for us in the days ahead.
One thing we know for sure: Roe has wrought a lot of dead babies. The United States is the well-established leader for abortion rates in the western world.
To be more precise, statistics reveal legalized abortion has led to the demise of countless unwanted babies. A vast majority of reported abortions in the U.S. are elective. According to information supplied by the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion research group, 92 percent of abortions in America have nothing to do with rape or incest or the health of the mother. Those lives are exterminated as a matter of convenience. more >>
Pope Francis described as "frightful" the fate of aborted children and lamented the "throwaway culture" of the world where even human beings are discarded, in a strong message to diplomats on Monday.
In his message to the Vatican diplomats, Francis stressed that peace is threatened by the denial of human dignity, whether it's in the form of ignoring hungry children or aborting or selling them.
"It is frightful even to think there are children, victims of abortion, who will never see the light of day; children being used as soldiers, abused and killed in armed conflicts; and children being bought and sold in that terrible form of modern slavery which is human trafficking, which is a crime against humanity," the Vatican leader told more than 180 ambassadors at the Holy See. more >>
The Supreme Court declined Monday to hear Arizona's appeal against a lower court's ruling that determined its ban on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy was unconstitutional. The lower court's ruling thus remains and the state's ban on abortion after 20 weeks has been struck down.
The Supreme Court justices declined to provide a reason as to why they won't be reviewing the case. In May 2013, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled that Arizona's ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy violated the legal precedents set by Roe v. Wade in 1973, and was therefore unconstitutional.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the 20-week abortion ban into law in 2012. The law has been considered to be one of the strictest pieces of pro-life legislation in the country, only allowing abortions after 20 weeks in the case of medical emergencies. Those who opposed the legislation argued it was stricter than other states with similar laws because the method for determining a gestation period barred abortions two weeks earlier than other states with 20-week abortion bans. more >>
Although this is not breaking news, Mayor de Blasio's war on the unborn remains shocking and morally reprehensible, and it is something we must continue to address.
While doing a radio interview in New York City last week, the host, Kevin McCullough, mentioned to me how the mayor has promised to work aggressively to shut down crisis pregnancy centers – not to shut down abortion clinics, or crack houses, or houses of prostitution, or gambling dens, but rather to shut down one of the few places in the city dedicated to saving life of the innocent.
Why this war against babies in the womb? more >>
