British hospitals used the bodies of aborted and miscarried babies to heat their buildings, the United Kingdom's Channel 4 has shockingly revealed.
A Channel 4 show airing on Monday night reveals that the bodies of thousands of preborn babies were included as clinical waste in 10 National Health Service (NHS) trusts and subsequently incinerated. Two others admitted to burning the human remains as part of their "waste-to-energy" plants.
Health Minister and Conservative Member of Parliament, Dr. Dan Poulter, decried the practice as "totally unacceptable." more >>
A feminist professor at a state university in California has been charged with physical confrontation with a pro-life protester from a Christian ministry on campus and with stealing and destroying a banner during an awareness event earlier this month.
University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young, who specializes in black cultural studies and pornography, was on Friday charged with theft, battery and vandalism – all misdemeanors – and her arraignment is scheduled for April 4, according to Santa Barbara Independent.
The alleged victim is from a Riverside-based Christian ministry, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. more >>
South Carolina's House of Representatives voted Wednesday to approve a bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. If the bill passes the Senate and is approved by Gov. Nikki Haley, South Carolina will become the 13th state to enact such a ban.
The Republican-dominated House voted 84-29 Wednesday to approve House Bill 4223, also known as the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act," that bans doctors from performing an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy unless the mother's life is in grave danger. The bill is based on the highly-debated medical argument that a fetus can feel pan at 20 weeks post-fertilization.
The bill needs another perfunctory House vote before it can head to the state's Senate, which also carries a Republican majority. more >>
A Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit group that raises funds for abortion is coming under fire for selling a "coat hanger pendant" to donors who finance their group. The small nonprofit has shot back at critics, saying it has sold the pendant for several years and arguing that the small necklace is meant to represent the desperate measures women would take to have an abortion if the procedure is not readily available.
The nonprofit group, DC Abortion Fund, makes grants to low-income women in D.C., Maryland and Virginia who cannot afford to pay for their abortion on their own. On their website, the group offers a "coat hanger pendant" gift to all donors who give $10 or more to the nonprofit group. "Donors who sign up to give $10/month or more will receive a DCAF coat hanger necklace as our way to say thank you," the DCAF's donation website reads. "Visit our online donation page today and in the dedication box, type in 'Coat Hanger.'"
Pro-life advocates have blasted the group for their "gift," calling the coat hanger pendant "sick," "twisted," "disgusting," and "gruesome." Herman Cain, former 2012 candidate for the GOP presidential nomination, tweeted: "It's a sad day in America when an abortion fund pushes donations by saying they'll send you a coat hanger pendant." more >>
After receiving media attention and a letter from a Christian legal group, Branford High School administrators have backed off from censoring Students for Life of Branford. The student-led club will now have the same privileges as the other clubs at the school.
"On behalf of Branford High School Students for Life and on behalf of all abortion abolitionists across the nation, I am honored to say that another victory for the pre-born has been won," Sam Bailey-Loomis, founder and president of Branford Students for Life, said in a Students for Life of America press release.
As The Christian Post reported on March 11, school administrators would not let the pro-life student club show a model of a fetus at their display table, and would not let them set up the display table, hand out information and recruit members, or "clipboard," at lunch, even though other student clubs were allowed to do so. more >>
A 34-year-old Brooklyn man gave his pregnant girlfriend abortion-inducing pills during intercourse, thus causing her to have a miscarriage, prosecutors recently argued in the Brooklyn Supreme Court.
Prosecutors allege that Shervaughn Remy of Crown Heights, N.Y., is guilty of felony abortion after reportedly slipping two Cytotec pills inside his pregnant girlfriend while the two had intercourse in 2013. The girlfriend claims in the criminal complaint that after having intercourse with Remy, she felt intense abdominal pains so severe that she admitted herself to the local hospital.
The criminal complaint goes on to say that the doctor treating Remy's then-girlfriend at the hospital discovered two Cytotec pills inside her. The woman then gave birth to a stillborn, 14-week old fetus hours later. Remy was arrested on Valentine's Day 2013. more >>
