On Friday, the Virginia Board of Health gave final passage to a bill requiring all 20 state abortion clinics to uphold the same surgical standards that hospitals provide patients. The Virginia board heard testimony from over 30 individuals from both sides of the discussion. Pro-lifers reminded the board what abortion truly looks like, while abortion advocates complained about the burdensome cost of renovations.
But one message was clearly heard by the board members: "We need to be assured that a Kermit Gosnell-type practitioner is not operating in Virginia." These are the words of Janet Robey, State Director of Concerned Women for America of Virginia.
Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell is undergoing a capital murder trial for the gruesome slaughter of at least seven newborn babies and the death of one woman. In what can only be called an abortion "House of Horrors," Gosnell allegedly forced vulnerable women to give birth to viable babies and then murdered the newborns by "snipping" their spinal cords. It is understandable why Virginias have gone the extra mile to ensure new measures will protect the health and safety of its female citizens. more >>
The openly gay son of a conservative Republican Congressman has stated that he benefitted from undergoing the controversial practice of reparative therapy as a teenager.
Matt R. Salmon, son of Ariz. Rep. Matt Salmon, told CNN's Anderson Cooper that his taking of "ex-gay" conversation therapy helped him be more comfortable around other men.
"Looking back, I don't regret it. The goal was to become straight, and it turns out what I took away from it was an increased confidence," said Salmon, who entered therapy at age 18. more >>

In the fifth week of Kermit Gosnell's murder trial, jurors learned about severed hands and feet Gosnell kept in jars of formaldehyde, clogged toilets filled with aborted babies' arms and legs, and a federally-funded children's vaccination program Gosnell scammed to obtain vaccines for his grandchild.
On Monday, Dr. Sam Gulino, Philadelphia's chief medical examiner, gave his testimony about the 47 dead babies recovered from Gosnell's office that were delivered to him for examination, including the aborted remains of Karnamaya Mongar's baby. more >>
At yesterday's White House press conference, spokesman Jay Carney said the President would not comment about the murders committed by Kermit Gosnell because his trial is ongoing. Despite the spurious response, the President has made his position quite clear on the issue of infanticide: he supports it.
Infanticide is defined as the killing of infants within the first twenty-four hours of a child's birth.
Here are just a few examples as to why the President of the United States supports infanticide: more >>
Republicans have been so busy attacking each other lately that little attention is being paid to the antics of the left. The far left activists, including the Occupy movement and Anonymous, have been quite busy.
The Occupiers are helping fast food workers strike for higher wages and a union. Their targets include Wendy's and Burger King in New York City. If they really wanted to help those workers, they would encourage them to attend college and find higher paying jobs. The founder of the Occupy movement, Adbusters, is organizing Occupiers to protest Goldman Sachs banks around the world. They would be better off targeting the politicians who created the arbitrary laws that banks must operate inside of; running one bank out of business won't change the status quo.
Anonymous, the shadowy, unorganized group of hackers and anarchists has been threatening vigilante justice in sexual assault cases. One of the main problems with this tactic was seen in the case of Amanda Todd. The teenager committed suicide after relentless cyber bullying. Anonymous outed Kody Maxson as her attacker. It was reported later that he was the wrong man. By then he had received over 50 death threats. This month, Anonymous is demanding that police reopen a closed investigation into four young men who allegedly raped 17-year old Rehtaeh Parsons and bullied her for two years. She committed suicide in early April. Anonymous threatened to release the minors' names if the case wasn't reopened, and coincidentally the police have now reopened the case. Parsons' mother is concerned and says her daughter would not have wanted more harm to come to anyone. more >>
The Consultation Chamber in the North Cairo Court postponed the lawsuit filed against Ahmed Mahmoud Abdallah, a controversial entertainer more commonly known as Abu Islam, for contempt of Christianity to May 20, so that related documents can be submitted and processed.
Sheikh Abu Islam previously burned a Bible and called for people to urinate on it during a demonstration of Salafis and Islamic groups in front of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to protest the anti-Islam film, The Innocence of Muslims, which was released in the summer of 2012.
Abu Islam mocked the Christian faith and Jesus Christ on Al-Ummah [The Nation] TV channel, which he owns. He also infamously claimed that girls who demonstrate in Tahrir Square are Christians who want to be harassed by protesters. more >>
