An international court has tried to intervene in a major abortion case in El Salvador by stating that doctors must perform the procedure in order to save the life of a woman who is carrying a deformed baby.
The Inter-American Court of Human Rights stated its position on Thursday after El Salvador's Supreme Court rejected an appeal by the 22-year-old woman who asked to be granted an exemption from the Latin American country's strict no abortion laws.
When asked if Attorney General Eric Holder should resign for the numerous scandals in which he finds himself, MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson said, "What [Holder] should understand is that he is the chief lawgiver of the United States of America, so to speak – he's the Moses of our time, and at least for this administration."
To state the obvious: nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Moses could demand quite a few things of President Obama, America's modern day Pharaoh.

WASHINGTON – The newest breakthrough in the pro-life movement isn't a bill in Congress or a march on Washington: it's a mobile ultrasound vehicle. Equipped with a team of Christian medical professionals, 22 mobile vehicles already visited 19 cities in the United States.
Michael Homula, executive director of ICU Mobile, shared the story on Wednesday at a Family Research Council event. ICU stands for Image Clear Ultrasound, but also sounds like "I See You," as in "I see you in the womb."
"We're not interested in having a pro-life-mobile," he said. "We're very interested in appealing to women who are considering aborting their children." more >>
Abortion rights advocate Planned Parenthood got a boost from a Supreme Court ruling on Tuesday which upheld a previous ruling in lower courts that Indiana could not block Medicaid funding for the organization's clinics because they perform abortions.
"Today's announcement from the Supreme Court is not only a victory for Planned Parenthood's patients in Indiana, it is a victory for the nearly 3 million people who turn to Planned Parenthood health centers each year across the country," Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said in a Los Angeles Times report on Tuesday.
The Supreme Court let stand rulings by an Indiana federal judge and the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago preventing Indiana's 2011 law from taking effect. It would have banned Medicaid funding from organizations that perform abortions like Planned Parenthood clinics. more >>
Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist who is now pro-life, described in clinical detail how a late-term abortion is performed. Levatino was testifying in support of a bill that would ban all abortions nationwide after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Levatino asked the committee members to imagine a patient 24 weeks pregnant. The baby "would be as long as your hand plus a half from the top of her head to the bottom of the rump not counting the legs," and the patient has been feeling the baby kick for the last two months.
He was testifying before the House Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice Thursday hearing on H.R. 1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The bill was originally going to only apply to the District of Columbia, but after the horrific details of the Kermit Gosnell trial came to light, the bill's sponsor, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), decided to change the bill so it would apply to the whole nation. more >>
Recent reports reveal the costly socio-economic and human reality of four decades of gendercide in China. Gendercide is sex-selective abortion, which has resulted in the murder of girls (born or unborn) at disproportionately higher rates than boys. Gendercide is a direct result of China's One Child Policy.
If the consequences of China's policies are not seriously heeded, tragedies of unknown proportions will occur in America—as they are already occurring around the world.
In 1964, the first national Family Planning Office was established to oversee China's fertility reduction program, which included implementing a One Child Policy (one child per couple). To enforce the policy, the government instituted mandatory birth control and abortion (often referred to as "remedial measures"). more >>
