The nation's oldest Catholic university, Georgetown University, has invited Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund, to speak at an event in April, citing "students' right to express their personal views."
The Lecture Fund, a student-run organization, has invited Richards to speak on campus, the university confirms in a statement it issued after drawing criticism for inviting the leader of America's controversial and largest abortion provider.
"This is the latest in a long history of scandal at Georgetown University," said Patrick Reilly, president of Cardinal Newman Society, a nonprofit that seeks to promote and defend faithful Catholic education. more >>
A New England Episcopal priest who says she aborted an accidental pregnancy while she was in divinity school is now among a group of high-powered pro-abortion women seeking to convince the Supreme Court to ease abortion restrictions.
The Rev. Anne Fowler, who recently retired from her position as rector at St. John's Episcopal Church in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, is among the group of more than 100 women who signed "friend-of-the-court" briefs intended to humanize abortion for the high court for what has been described as the most important Supreme Court battle over abortion in a generation.
Fowler's story appears along with the stories of nine other women in a brief supporting the argument that "reasonable access to abortion is essential for women to be equal participants in society." more >>

Along with their murderous, barbaric policies and practices, the Nazis engaged in serious medical research, and some Nazi doctors, like Prof. Dr. Julius Hallervorden (1882-1965), a famous neurologist who became head of the Neuropathology Department of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Brain Research in 1938, continued to advance their medical research after the Holocaust.
Yet no person in his or her right mind would say, "I hate the fact that these Nazi doctors were involved in torturing and slaughtering so many people, but they helped a lot of people too, so I'm going to be balanced in my criticism." more >>

NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland — A prominent abortion survivor and disability rights activist who was the influence behind the 2011 movie "October Baby" said Friday that it would not have been possible for her to overcome 18 hours of being burned alive inside her mother's womb if it were not for the glory and grace of her savior, Jesus Christ.
During a panel discussion on "personhood from womb to tomb" at the Conservative Political Action Conference, 38-year-old Gianna Jessen, who not only survived a torturous saline abortion but also has Cerebral Palsy due to lack of Oxygen during the abortion attempt, told the crowd at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center that she is living a happier life than most people who "whine about nothing" despite the fact that many questioned what her quality of life would be.
After the panel's moderator Julie Hocker brought up the fact that 90 percent of unborn children with Down's Syndrome are aborted, Jessen decried "healthy people" who think they can determine the quality of life for people with severe disabilities. more >>
