Since the U.S. House of Representatives pulled the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act from consideration on January 21 – the evening before March for Life 2015 – pro-life blogger Jill Stanek has been relentless in calling for the bill to come back to the House floor for a vote.
With the bill yet to be reintroduced two months later, Stanek felt the voice of pro-life activists was not being heard.
When she teamed up with Rev. Pat Mahoney of Christian Defense Coalition and Troy Newman of Operation Rescue to announce a Sit-in/Pray-in at Speaker John Boehner's Congressional office, within days the Speaker of the House responded. more >>
You will be touched when you hear this incredible story through music. Kimberly Henderson sings powerful lyrics through her original song "Tiny Hearts." Your heart will be touched when you hear her story about her baby girl, who was nearly aborted.
Kimberly's baby girl, Vaida, is now everything she could have asked for and more. When you hear about her story, it will be hard to hold back the tears. Hearing about her life stories will show you just how much she has been through.
"Two years ago today I was sitting in an abortion clinic thinking not having Vaida was best for me. Well, this date is forever burned in my brain. … I think that is God's way of showing me that HIS plan is and will always be greater and bigger than anything and everything I've ever known," she said. more >>
Espresso makes you hyper. When you're hyper you sometimes make rash decisions. When you make rash decisions you usually regret it. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz evidently chugged a Venti-five-shot-double-pump-skinny-vanilla-latte last week before announcing Starbucks' new "RaceTogether" public relations stunt. As he describes it, the über-"progressive" head of the multi-billion dollar corporate mega-giant that brews mediocre coffee by the silo full and whose leadership is almost exclusively white – hopes to "start a discussion" about American race relations. (I'm pretty sure that discussion has been ongoing for a couple centuries, but, hey, I was wrong that one time about that other thing.)
The way I understand it is that when you unsuspectingly wander into any of your 12 local Starbucks locations, your official Starbucks barista will write "RaceTogether" with his official Starbucks Sharpie on the side of your official Starbucks cup and then, as you try to avoid eye contact and grab your Splenda and 2% on the way out the door while formulating an excuse for why you're already late to work, he'll ask you if you'd like to have a discussion about race.
Bad idea? The cost of white privilege? I don't know. Maybe it's just how I'm wired, but I kind of relish the opportunity to explain to a bearded, ghost white, heavily pierced and tatted 29-year-old aspiring LGBTOMGWTFBBQ Gender Studies professional that the whole "Hands up Don't Shoot™" meme was a cultural Marxist hoax rooted in, as are all things "progressive," a bunch of pretend stuff. more >>
In what is emerging as a national test case, the Iowa Supreme Court heard oral arguments last week in Planned Parenthood of the Heartland Inc. v. Iowa Board of Medicine, which challenges the 2013 state medical board's decision to require the physical presence of a physician when a patient is given an abortion-inducing drug.
Telemed abortion, otherwise known as a webcam abortion, is a procedure in which an expectant mother gets a chemical abortion when there is no doctor physically present.
The physician consults the patient via webcam and, after the doctor explains the procedure to the patient, the physician remotely activates a drawer that opens. more >>
Actor Nick Searcy from the hit television series "Justified" will be directing a film about infamous abortionist Kermit Gosnell who was sentenced to life in prison for committing crimes of infanticide and involuntary manslaughter inside his West Philadelphia abortion clinic.
"There are three aspects to this story that are fascinating — what happened; why it was allowed to happen; and why no one wanted to talk about it after it happened," said Searcy, who plays the role of U.S. Marshal Art Mullen in the FX series, and will direct the $2.2 million crowdfunded film project about Gosnell's "house of horrors" late-term abortion facility.
On May 13, 2013, Gosnell was sentenced to serve life in prison without parole for three counts of first-degree murder for killing babies born alive in his abortion clinic by cutting their spinal cords with scissors. He was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for the 2009 death of Karnamaya Mongar, a 41-year-old Nepalese refugee who died from a Demerol overdose administered by his untrained and unlicensed staff. more >>
The U.S. Senate was criticized for blocking an anti-human trafficking bill on Tuesday because Senate Democrats objected to the inclusion of anti-abortion language.
"Stopping human trafficking is too important a priority to be held hostage by the abortion lobby's culture-warring," Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, said in a statement.
"I urge the Senate to think about vulnerable women and children in peril, rather than about the political maneuvers of the abortion-industrial complex." more >>
