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.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday will hear oral arguments challenging a 2007 Massachusetts law that prohibits pro-life advocates from approaching abortion clinic workers and potential clients past a regulated "buffer zone."
Currently, pro-life advocates are barred from standing within 35 feet of the front door of abortion clinics in Massachusetts. Outside some abortion facilities in the state, a painted yellow line clearly marks the parameters allocated for protesters who face potential arrest if they cross that barrier.
In the case, McCullen v. Coakley, the Court is being asked to decide whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit was right in upholding the state's law that makes it a crime for pro-life advocates to "enter or remain on a public way or sidewalk" within 35 feet of an entrance, exit or driveway to an abortion facility. more >>
The United States Supreme Court has officially scheduled oral arguments for what many believe will be a landmark case regarding religious liberty.
Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., a Midwest crafts retail chain, will get to present oral arguments against the Department of Health and Human Services' "preventive services" mandate on Tuesday, March 25.
Owned and operated by a Christian family who hold religious objections to providing abortion-inducing drugs to its employees, Hobby Lobby is represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. more >>
A Chinese woman has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and has described herself as a "walking corpse" two years following a forced abortion, highlighting the dangers of the country's one-child policy rule, according to a pro-life group.
"It was the pain of my lifetime, worse than the pain of delivering a child. You cannot describe it," 25-year-old Gong Qifeng said in a recent interview, according to The Associated Press. "And it has become a mental pain. I feel like a walking corpse."
According to the report, two years ago when Gong was seven months pregnant with her second child in China's southern province of Hunan, and was in violation of the country's family size policy, she was taken by government officials who held her down and injected a syringe of labor-inducing drugs into her stomach. more >>
The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear two pro-life groups' challenge to an Ohio law that prohibits candidates and issue groups from making false campaign statements and deters the groups from erecting billboards on taxpayer funding of abortion through "Obamacare."
The groups, Susan B. Anthony List and Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes, say former Democrat Rep. Steve Driehaus from Ohio sought to use the law to prevent them from erecting billboards in his district during the 2010 election cycle to educate constituents about his vote in support of taxpayer funding abortion by voting for the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
The SBA List was threatened with prosecution if it engaged in similar speech about Driehaus or other candidates, the group said in a statement Friday. more >>
A bill that calls for a permanent ban on federal funding of abortions is making its way through the U.S. House of Representatives.
H.R. 7, which if enacted would amend Title 1 of the United States Code, was given a hearing Thursday held by Arizona Republican Representative Trent Franks.
"No funds authorized or appropriated by Federal law, and none of the funds in any trust fund to which funds are authorized or appropriated by Federal law, shall be expended for any abortion," reads H.R. 7 in part. more >>
