Cardinal Timothy Dolan is blasting a proposal that would allow easier access to abortion in New York while also extending the legal time frame women are allowed to receive and abortion.
Governor Andrew Cuomo's yet-to-be-introduced Women's Equality Act he referenced in his State of the State address was stated to "protect a woman's freedom of choice by enacting a reproductive health act."
However, many pro-life advocates are warning that the bill will not increase women's health, but will increase the number of late-term abortions in a state with the highest abortion rate in the country. more >>
Partly due to their own hard work and partly due to events beyond their control, pro-life activists appear energized by new opportunities to reach the public with their message and advance legislation that limits abortions. Will 2013 be a watershed year for the pro-life movement? Some pro-life leaders interviewed by The Christian Post believe so.
Several recent incidents have become a sounding board for the pro-life message and pointed to flaws in pro-choice arguments, the interviewees said.In a Florida legislature committee hearing, Alisa LaPolt Snow, a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood of Florida appeared to condone the killing of a baby born alive after a botched abortion. Another Planned Parenthood spokesperson returned to the Florida legislature the same week to clarify that they do not support infanticide. Yet, the organization does support the killing of a fetus before it leaves the womb. The trial of Kermit Gosnell revealed the horrors of the late-term abortionist. He was sentenced to life in prison after the jury decided that he delivered live fetuses before snipping their necks. Yet, if Gosnell had killed the fetuses before delivering them, his actions would have been legal. After Ariel Castro kidnapped and held three girls for 10 years in a suburban Ohio home, he forced at least five abortions on one of the victims he impregnated by starving her and punching her in the stomach. He could be tried for the murder of those fetuses. Yet, it would not have been considered murder if he had taken his victim to an abortion clinic instead.
These cases are significant, Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, told The Christian Post, because they get the media to talk about the topic of abortion, a topic they would normally avoid. When the media begin covering the topic, it gets those Americans in what Hawkins calls the "mushy middle" to think about abortion, a topic they also would prefer to avoid. more >>
If you didn't think things could get worse under the Obama Administration, think again.
It appears we now have a Pimp-in-Chief, promoting through the Department of Health and Human Service's Office on Women's Health, a website, www.girlshealth.gov, which defines anal sex, mutual masturbation, gay sex, birth control, and emergency contraceptives to girls aged 10-16-as normal and healthy.
By clicking on the "Body" tab on the home page, and then clicking through a few more pages, girls learn that it's natural to be gay. more >>
Republicans should back off opposition to same-sex marriage, College Republicans argue in a new report on how to gain the support of young voters.
Using a March survey of young voters, those under 30, by the College Republicans National Committee, the report found that many young voters would not vote for a Republican candidate if they opposed same-sex marriage, even if they agreed with the candidate on a range of other issues.
About two out of five young voters, 39 percent, said that opposition to same-sex marriage would make them less likely to vote for a candidate, and one-third, 33 percent, said the issue would make no difference. Most young voters, the survey found, believe that jobs and the economy are the most important issues. Only 11 percent answered that making same-sex marriages legal was a high priority. more >>
A city in China released a draft regulation Friday that would force mothers who have children out of wedlock to pay a major fine.
The city of Wuhan's draft ordinance says "the parties" should pay a fee for births that occur out of wedlock or when one person knowingly has a child with someone who is already married, The Associated Press reports. State media outlets have said the policy primarily targets single mothers and women who have affairs with married men.
The fees women could owe for having a child out of wedlock could amount to as much as 162,000 yuan ($26,407) in some cases under the draft regulation's current interpretation, Lin Xi of the state-run Global Times reports. Xi criticized the draft ordinance for only having a serious impact on the poor and for penalizing mothers while not taking into account the responsibilities of the fathers. more >>
Pro-abortion zealots want you to believe that convicted killer Kermit Gosnell was an exception. That his "House of Horrors" was the only bad apple. But you don't have to look far to find other Gosnells. They are lurking in communities across our nation, enabled by politicians and officials who won't enact or enforce basic regulations and health safety standards on abortion businesses because of their own utmost devotion to abortion eugenics ideology or for fear of the powerful abortion lobby.
Late-term abortionist Douglas Karpen is one such man who has thus far escaped into the system, like Gosnell did for decades.
