Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton doubled down on controversial comments she made earlier this week on the "unborn child" having no constitutional rights when she declared that even on their due dates it's still up to their mothers whether they live or die.
In an appearance Tuesday on ABC's "The View," co-host Paula Faris asked Clinton: "At what point does someone have constitutional rights, and are you saying that a child, on its due date, just hours before delivery, still has no constitutional rights?"
"Under our law that is the case, Paula," Clinton said. more >>
Abortion giant Planned Parenthood is under fire again for the organization's controversial fetal harvesting consent form given to women considering abortion that falsely claims aborted babies' tissue has been used to "treat and find a cure" for diseases such as AIDS, cancer and diabetes.
The controversial form was reviewed during a hearing of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives held on March 2 to examine the bioethics of fetal tissue harvesting and experimentation.
"Research using the blood from pregnant women and tissue that has been aborted has been used to treat and find a cure for such diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and AIDS," begins the language on a copy of the form. more >>
The Roman Catholic Church in Poland is coming out in support of a proposed law that would increase regulations on abortion in the European country to protect life from conception to death.
As Reuters reports, Poland's abortion laws allow the termination of a pregnancy if the mother's life is in danger, in cases of rape or incest, or if the baby would be severely deformed.
The legislation, which is being proposed by the conservative Law and Justice Party, will make unborn life protection laws even stronger, allowing termination of pregnancy only in cases where mothers face a medical emergency. more >>
They have made a personal vow to God and to the elderly poor. With a joyful and humble spirit, the Little Sisters of the Poor are nuns who have dedicated their lives to ensure the frail elderly are treated with dignity and respect until they take their last breath.
The Little Sisters have a rich history of service that spans 175 years and 31 countries, serving more than 13,000 elderly poor. Yet today, these nuns find themselves petitioning the highest court of the land for justice in a case that reads like a modern-day David versus Goliath match.
The Little Sisters are undoubtedly David, driven by their mission to serve, while the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the giant demanding the Sisters compromise their Catholic faith to comply with an imposed health care mandate that goes against their religious beliefs. more >>
Virginia's Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe vetoed a bill that would have defunded Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business.
McAuliffe vetoed House Bill 1090 on Tuesday, arguing in a statement that if the bill had become law it "would restrict access to healthcare services."
"This bill, aimed at Planned Parenthood, would harm tens of thousands of Virginians who rely on the healthcare services and programs provided by Planned Parenthood health centers by denying them access to affordable care," stated McAuliffe. more >>
British actor Jeremy Irons is receiving criticism on social media for saying that abortion harms a woman both psychologically and physically, and that the Church is right in calling it a sin.
"Take abortion … I believe women should be allowed to make the decision, but I also think the Church is right to say it's a sin," Irons, the "Die Hard With a Vengeance" star, told The Guardian.
"Because sin is actions that harm us," the 67-year-old actor, who plays Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," explained. "Lying harms us. Abortion harms a woman — it's a tremendous mental attack, and physical, sometimes. But we seem to get that muddled. In a way, thank God the Catholic Church does say we won't allow it, because otherwise nobody's saying that it's a sin." more >>
