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 >>
WASHINGTON — A new Marist Poll released Tuesday finds that an overwhelming majority of Americans support implementing tougher restrictions for abortions, including more than six out of 10 pro-choice individuals who favor banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Commissioned by the Catholic fraternal organization Knights of Columbus, Marist conducted its annual phone survey gauging the public's attitudes toward abortion and legislation seeking to restrict access to abortion in the United States in November 2015.
Although the media likes to portray the narrative that America is about split in half on abortion when it comes to pro-life versus pro-choice, the survey, which interviewed nearly 1,700 respondents nationwide, with an error margin of +/- 2.4 percentage points, suggests that there is a broad consensus in America that supports tougher abortions laws. more >>
Evangelicals in the pro-life movement need to go on offense in spreading their message, Jim Daly argued.
Daly, president of the Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family, was part of a Thursday panel at Evangelicals for Life.
Daly drew a parallel to American football, arguing that "the commentators on football always talk about the defense getting tired. They never talk about the offense getting tired." more >>
WASHINGTON — Abortion doctors experience a "burden of guilt" for the deaths of babies they are responsible for killing, David Daleiden, the man behind the two and-a-half year undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood, explained Thursday.
Daleiden, a 27-year-old pro-life activist who founded the Center for Medical Progress and headed the undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood's aborted baby parts compensation practices, sat down with Southern Baptist Convention ethicist Russell Moore and Focus on the Family's Jim Daly at the 2016 Evangelicals for Life conference to discuss his personal experiences from the investigation.
As the findings of the CMP investigation were released in a series of YouTube videos last year, Daleiden witnessed first-hand the inhumane and casual way that doctors and executives of the nation's largest abortion provider referred to and treated human fetuses and how they discussed ways that the company and its partners skirt around federal laws and restrictions. more >>
Hillary Rodham Clinton received the endorsement of the United States' largest gay rights group, further cementing her support among socially liberal groups.
The Human Rights Campaign released a statement earlier this week in support of the current Democratic primary frontrunner, declaring "HRC for HRC."
"She has stood with us, and now it's our turn. Her fight is our fight," stated the HRC group, listing various positions that Clinton has taken in support of gay marriage and antidiscrimination laws. more >>
