Vatican officials have offered a homeless woman one year of free housing after she gave birth near St. Peter's Square this week in the freezing cold.
The homeless woman, whose name has not been revealed to the public, gave birth on a piece of cardboard near St. Peter's Square at around 2 a.m. Wednesday in zero-degree weather. She was noticed and offered help by a Vatican patrol car shortly after giving birth.
"When I got close I saw that the baby was already born and was still attached by the umbilical cord to the mother," Maria Capone, one of the officers who noticed the woman in the cold, told The Associated Press. "With my colleagues we tried to warm them up. We covered them with our uniform jackets." more >>
Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina declared that pro-choice Feminists are attempting to shut down debate over the issue of abortion.
At the annual March for Life in Washington, DC on Friday, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO told those gathered outdoors that "feminism now shuts down conversation on college campuses and the media."
"If you are a pro-life man or heaven-forbid a conservative woman who doesn't believe the litanies of the left then you are a waging a 'war on women' or you a threat to women's health," said Fiorina. more >>
WASHINGTON — The mass excitement, interest and outrage that ensued following the release of the Center for Medical Progress' undercover Planned Parenthood videos last summer "is dead," a pro-life author asserted Thursday.
Trillia Newbell, who is the director of community outreach for the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and author of the 2015 book Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves, participated in a panel discussion at the 2016 Evangelicals for Life conference where she discussed how millennials are impacting the pro-life movement.
Newbell was asked by moderator Briana Stensrud about the CMP Planned Parenthood undercover videos that showed the inhumane realities behind the practices at abortion clinics and what they have done to change the abortion landscape in communities. more >>
Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has praised a recent Google doodle of a pro-life feminist leader, and argued that human life should not be considered precious because of its ability to contribute to society, but because every human being is made in the image of God.
"As Christians we need to tell others why human life — every human life — is valuable, starting with God's Word. A life isn't intrinsically valuable because he or she can contribute to society; a life has intrinsic value because every human being is made in God's image (Genesis 1:27), and is a being who will live forever," Ham wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday.
"The Psalms remind us that 'I am fearfully and wonderfully made' (Psalm 139:14) and Jeremiah says that 'before I formed you in the womb I knew you' (Jeremiah 1:5). When we start our thinking with God's Word, it's readily apparent that every life has value, worth, and dignity," he added, and pointed to an AiG article from Sunday, which further elaborates on the topic. more >>
WASHINGTON — Women are being "victimized" and in some cases killed as a result of abortion procedures, yet lack of accurate data recording is keeping Americans in the dark about the issue, a prominent obstetrician-gynecologist who has been in her field for over 40 years explained Thursday.
During a panel discussion at the 2016 Evangelicals for Life conference, Dr. Freda Bush, a clinical instructor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Mississippi Medical Center who is an American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists board member, questioned whether Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics are doing their part to explain the real and fatal health risks of abortion to young women who are looking for a way out of their crisis pregnancies.
In the discussion, which was focused on the aftermath of Center for Medical Progress' undercover Planned Parenthood aborted baby body parts videos, Bush called for the "full disclosure" on how Planned Parenthood clinics respond to protect women who experience serious complications as a result of abortion procedures. more >>
A recent special edition of TIME Magazine headlined "The Supreme Court Decisions That Changed America" makes a surprising admission for the world's most-read newsweekly: "Like abolition in the 1850s or the war in Vietnam in the 1960s, Roe v. Wade divided the U.S. into two bitterly opposed camps."
This weekend's March for Life reflects that reality, as hundreds of thousands demonstrate on behalf of pre-born lives despite winter storm conditions in Washington, DC (a storm already dubbed #SnowVWade on social media).
Roe v. Wade is the Supreme Court decision, along with its companion case Doe v. Bolton, that legalized ending a pre-born baby's life — for any reason, at any stage of development. For the past 43 years, Roe v. Wade has been the "law of the land" … as some of our congressmen have stated many times during recent hearings investigating Planned Parenthood. more >>
