After a storied eight years in the NFL, Super Bowl XL champion Antwaan Randle El is praying about the long-term effects of injuries he sustained on the field.
Although he was celebrated as the only wide receiver to throw a touchdown pass that helped his Pittsburgh Steelers clinch the Super Bowl XL championship in 2006, the 36-year-old has trouble making down his own stairs after his retirement.
Randle El told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he might also be suffering from memory loss. The former NFL WR who left the game for good in 2012 is unsure if he should blame his time in the league or his busy life for his memory issues. more >>
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 — 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 >>
