Planned Parenthood Plans to Spend $45 Million to Elect Pro-Abortion Candidates in 2020

Planned Parenthood, an organization that admits receiving 37% of its overall revenue from taxpayer funding in its 2017-2018 annual report, revealed to CBS reporter Kate Smith that it plans to spend record amounts in 2020 to support pro-abortion candidates.

Smith reported this move is “the biggest electoral effort in its history: a $45 million spend to support presidential, congressional and state-level candidates in the 2020 elections who support abortion rights.”

The abortion corporation wants to stop the recent influx of abortion regulations from states around the country and maintain the role of other states (like Illinois) as abortion havens for women who cannot access abortion in their own states. Smith explained Planned Parenthood's reasoning further:
"There is so much at stake if you are an abortion rights activist. I mean, last year, you saw an unprecedented number of abortion restrictions and bans across the country. This is not just the south and Midwest we’re talking about. I think there was 38 different states introduced at least some of these restrictions. They are really leaving no stone unturned. Every single state they are looking at, and how can they either find candidates that are less hostile toward abortion rights, or in some cases, finding candidates that are particularly open to reproductive health. For example, I spoke to a volunteer activist in Colorado. She was telling me that Colorado, their Planned Parenthood affiliates see patients from 38 different states."

Genetic Researchers Paid Women to be Artificially Inseminated so they Could Study Embryos.

A recent study led by CooperGenomics reproductive geneticist Santiago Munne took advantage of impoverished women by paying them to be artificially inseminated. Living embryos were flushed from their bodies and studied for the purpose of developing a new method of fertilization that is cheaper than in vitro fertilization, while also allowing doctors to destroy embryos with certain genetic conditions.

“What this essentially does is use a woman’s body as a petri dish,” Laurie Zoloth, a bioethicist at the University of Chicago, told NPR. “And there’s something about that that seems so profoundly disturbing.”

This study further stigmatizes genetic conditions, takes advantage of impoverished women by allowing them to sell their bodies for much-needed income, and even paid for the abortion of any children whose embryos weren't flushed from their mother's body.

IL Rep. Dan Lipinski Under Fire from Democrats over Support for Louisiana Abortion Regulation

U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinksi (D-IL) is facing backlash from his party for his support of a Louisiana law that would require abortionists to maintain admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their facility.

Rep. Lipinski signed a friend of the court brief alongside 200 other Congress members to support Louisiana's law as it faces a Supreme Court Decision. For this, he is being heavily criticized by other members of his party, some of which argue he shouldn't be considered a Democrat at all.
Lipinski has also fallen under scrutiny from pro-life advocates in the past for his aye vote on the pro-abortion Equality Act. The Representative from Cook County voted in favor of the Equality Act, arguing that other aspects of the bill were positive enough that he could support it while trying to strengthen conscience protections afterward.

Rep. Lipinski offered this response to Live Action News when asked to comment:
The Louisiana law in question requires hospital admitting privileges for physicians performing abortions. I signed the amicus brief because I agree with the intention of the law as stated by the author, Democratic Louisiana State Representative Katrina Jackson: “If you are going to perform abortions in the State of Louisiana, you’re going to do so in a safe environment and in a safe manner that offers women the optimal protection and care of their bodies.” This is not an “undue burden.”

Virginia General Assembly Votes to Ratify Expired Equal Rights Amendment

Virginia's Senate and House of Delegates voted Wednesday to ratify the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment). The ERA (which legally died in 1979) now has the support of 38 states according to activists, the number required to ratify the amendment into law.

The ERA simply states "Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex." Advocates believe that if this language were to be inserted to the Constitution of the United States, any legislation that would limit access to abortion would become unconstitutional. They argue that abortion regulation is discriminatory because it forces women to give birth when they don't want children. Since giving birth does not affect men in the same way, they see any regulation as discriminatory.

“This is an attempt to air-drop into the Constitution a sweeping provision that could be used to attack any federal, state, or local law or policy that in any way limits abortion — abortion in the final months, partial-birth abortion, abortions on minors, government funding of abortion, conscience-protection laws, you name it,” said National Right to Life Senior Policy Advisor Douglas D. Johnson.

The Department of Justice issued an opinion restating the fact that the Equal Rights Amendment died over 40 years ago, and cannot be added to the constitution. David Ferriero, Archivist of the United States, said, “NARA defers to DOJ on this issue and will abide by the OLC opinion, unless otherwise directed by a final court order.”

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on H.J. Res. 79 in the future, a resolution that would retroactively change the ratification deadline. Advocates claim that the resolution can pass with simple majorities in the house and senate. Constitutional amendments must pass the house and the senate with two-thirds votes in both houses before being passed onto the states for consideration.

NRL’s Johnson said, “This resolution is a legislative mutant – nothing like it is described in the Constitution. Its authors claim it can reach backwards in time and change the terms of a constitutional amendment resolution that a different Congress passed with two-thirds votes nearly 48 years ago – and even more remarkably, this mutant resolution can accomplish this time-warping feat on the strength of simple-majority votes.”

9,000 Attend Chicago March for Life

Credit: Pro-Life Action League via Facebook
9,000 pro-life advocates attended the March for Life Chicago events on Saturday in spite of the cold temperatures.

Because of growing attendance, this year March for Life Chicago became event with a convention, a youth rally, a Catholic Mass, and more. Pro-life politicians, religious leaders, leaders of pro-life organizations, and others gave addresses at a rally that immediately preceded the march. Each of them spoke with the theme: “Life Empowers: Pro-Life is Pro-Woman.”

Alex Lehan, a student who gave a speech at the event on behalf of the pro-life organization weDignify, told Live Action News this theme was important for women to hear. She told the Live Action News that simply shouting pro-choice mantras (like protestors at March for Life Chicago who chanted "my body, my choice") doesn't offer support to women who are vulnerable and need to be lifted up. “You have options that are loving and life-giving. You are strong enough (to choose life),” she said.

Massachusetts Superior Court Rules Against Assisted Suicide

A Massachusetts superior court released its decision Friday that assisted suicide, “is not authorized under Massachusetts law.”

Near the end of its 24-page decision, the court listed several reasons why it believed assisted suicide should not be legalized in the state of Massachusetts.

"First, the Legislature could rationally conclude that difficulty in determining and ensuring that a patient is “mentally competent” warrants the continued prohibition of MAID [Medical Assistance in Dying]."

"Second, the Legislature could rationally conclude that predicting when a patient has six months to live is too difficult and risky for purposes of MAID, given that it involves the irreversible use of a lethal prescription."

"Third, the Legislature could rationally conclude that a general medical standard of care is not sufficient for those seeking MAID [citing testimony that assisted suicide is not a medical treatment or procedure]."

"Finally the Commonwealth produced expert testimony that the permissible end-of-life alternatives potentially involve far less risk than MAID because they occur in hospitals or other institutions devoted to medical treatment and involve numerous physicians and staff personnel… MAID, on the other hand, potentially takes place in an uncontrolled environment, without assurance that the patient will administer the medication when close to death and without physician oversight."

These reasons largely build on the fact that legal assisted suicide laws can easily lead to unnecessary death, especially when patients are able to access assisted suicide drugs for use outside of medical facilities.

Former Planned Parenthood Worker Speaks about Company Policy Harming Patients' Future Children

Credit: Blake Patterson / Flickr
In a webinar created by And Then There Were None, former members of the abortion industry shared their experiences watching Planned Parenthood endanger women in its rush to complete abortions quickly and secretly.

One of these workers shared that the clinic she worked at did not give some women a necessary shot after they had an abortion. In cases where a woman has Rh-negative blood and their preborn child has Rh-positive blood, abortions or miscarriages will cause antibodies to form within the mother. If another child with Rh-positive blood forms in the woman's womb in the future, these antibodies can attack the child and cause complications or a miscarriage. To prevent this, abortionists are supposed to give these women RhoGAM shots. Jayne said the Planned Parenthood at which she worked was in too much of a hurry to protect women from this danger.
"[A]t Planned Parenthood, because of the high volume and high-speed, patients were not – you only have 45 minutes to see a patient, and that’s when they come in, as soon as they come off the table it’s one blood pressure. You only take three blood pressures and they’re out the door, even if they’re groggy. [It] doesn’t matter because they have to keep moving. So, if you’re in charge and you have your 10 patients, there’s no way that you’re going to – things are going to get missed. And in this case, many cases, many times these patients were leaving, and not being given that shot – the RhoGAM."
Jayne further said that she was not allowed to contact patients who were told to leave without receiving the shot. Planned Parenthood policy tells employees not to contact former patients so they can keep their abortion secret if necessary. In this case, it valued that secrecy over the fertility problems their abortion procedures might cause.

Woman Talks about her Repeated Forced Abortions

Christine Loughead at about age 16
Christine Loughead spoke with Live Action News about her life experiences receiving forced abortions. If you want to read her full story, click here.

Christine Loughead had a difficult upbringing which included the separation of her parents, being raped by a 24-year old man when she was 12, and being sent into the government's care shortly after that. While in the government's care, she faced more abuse and often lived with women who made prostitution and drug use major parts of their lifestyle. Loughead was able to live independently under a program run by a group of nuns when she reached the age of 15, but she also became pregnant during this time. She told her social worker, who told her to meet at the Health Sciences Centre in the Women’s Hospital in Winnipeg.

When they met at the hospital, the social worker told Loughead that she had to get an abortion since the stipend given to her by the nuns would not cover the costs of providing for a child. She eventually had the abortion against her will, and the exact same situation happened a second time within a year.

“...they said, ‘No, no, no.’ So I thought, I’m obviously not meant to have kids. They are clearly telling me I’m too broken to be a mother,” Loughead said.

She had a total of five abortions over the course of her life because she believed these lies. Later in life, she believes that coerced abortions happen far more often than people think. Furthermore, she believes that her life would have changed positively had she been allowed to give birth to her first child.

Now Loughead is married and seeking legal assistance for a legal case against the hospital and the state government.

Baby with Spina Bifida Expected to Walk after Surgery in the Womb

After receiving surgery in her mother's womb, Kaelyn Murphy is expected to be able to walk in spite of a spina bifida diagnosis.

While Amanda Murphy was 20 weeks into her pregnancy, her daughter Kaelyn Murphy was diagnosed with spina bifida, a condition that causes the spinal cord to form improperly. Most children born with this condition are never able to walk. When the family was told Kaelyn was eligible for a new treatment that would allow her to walk, they sprung at the chance. Eoin Murphy, Kaelyn's father, appeared on the radio to discuss the amazing procedure that helped his daughter.

“We found out at 20 weeks and the operation had to be [done] by 26 weeks or it couldn’t be done. So we didn’t have much time to soak it all in. It was a massive shock,” Eoin said.

“So what they would do is Caesarean my partner Amanda, open her up, cut a little slit in the sac the baby is in turn the baby around so the opening in the back would be visible. They would sew it up and they would put her back in. And let baby try [to] heal itself whilst in mummy’s womb. That is what was done. We feel so fortunate.”

Preborn children diagnosed with spina bifida are often aborted by parents who believe they would suffer too much to make their life worth living. While that logic will never hold true, now they have another reason to give their child a chance.

Paralympic Athlete Talks about the Discrimination she Faced while Pregnant

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson with her family
Eleven-time Paralympic gold-medalist Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson expressed her frustrations with how people responded to her pregnancy on a BBC program entitled “Stumps, Wheels and Wobblies.”

“The first thing I was offered at my first scan was a termination because people were like: ‘You should not have children,” she said. “We had a discussion about ‘was I trying for a baby?’… and the individual had some quite complicated views on disability.”

Grey-Thompson's doctor told her they were concerned that people with disabilities would “breed” and “spread.” The doctor's opinion was the very definition of eugenics. He would rather have Grey-Thompson abort her daughter because her daughter might have a similar disability.

She also recalled being approached by a woman in the street who couldn't comprehend someone like her possibly wanting to give birth to a child. She gave a synopsis of this conversation in the interview:
“[The stranger] poked me and said: ‘How did you get pregnant?'” 
‘I remember screaming at her in the street: “I had sex with my husband. How do you think I got pregnant?”‘ 
‘She was like: “Oh well, that’s disgusting.” 
And I said: “I think he’s quite good looking, actually.”
Discriminatory attitudes against disabled women have become more common as abortion has become acceptable. Doctors and strangers have no right to impose that kind of decision on a mother, but because Grey-Thompson was disabled, they felt empowered to do so.

Canadians Concerned as Euthanasia Increases Organ Donations

As the rise of euthanasia increases the number of organ donations in Canada, ethics questions are being raised.

Between the months of January and November 2019, patients who died by euthanasia gave 18 organ and 95 tissue donations. This is an increase of 14% over donations in 2018, and 109% compared to donations in 2017. Some politicians expressed concerns that patients considering euthanasia might be influenced by doctors telling them that they will be able to make organ and tissue donations if they choose to die.

“The concern that I have is that it muddies the waters in terms of the patient making a decision freely, without any degree of coercion or influence from anyone,” Conservative Member of Parliament Michael Cooper told the Catholic News Agency. He further stated that the decision to donate one's organs “should not be part of the conversation” and stay “completely separate” from the decision to die via euthanasia.

If patients are convinced by others that being euthanized to save others is a noble act, then they are more likely to choose that option. Persuading desperate patients in this way is a manipulative and emotionally abusive act aimed at a vulnerable individual.

91-Year-Old Mother's Life Support Threatened in Legal Battle Against her Wishes.

Arline Lester
Arline Lester, a 91-year-old mother in New York, is caught in the middle of a legal battle over her right to life support.

Arline stated in an old will that she did not want her life to be prolonged in case of severe infirmity, and now her two sons have taken sides over whether that still applies. She was recently deemed mentally capable of making her own decisions and updated her living will. The updated will says that she wants the opportunity to remain on life support and recover. One son has moved to have Arline's life support removed per her old will, while the other has gone to lengths to help protect her.

Ed Lester says that he will take care of his mother after she leaves the hospital, and recorded a video to publicize her desire to live. He asks her if she wants to stay alive, to which she responds by nodding her head and mouthing the words "I want to stay alive."

Operation Rescue Survey: Surgical Abortion Clinics More Likely to Abort Late-Term, Prices are Increasing, Waits are Shorter

Operation Rescue released the second half of its report on abortion trends in the United States on Wednesday. 

The organization found that while the number of clinics that perform surgical abortions may be decreasing overall, the gestational age at which they are willing to abort is increasing. "In 2018, 46% of all surgical abortion facilities set an abortion limit of 13 weeks or under. However, in 2019, only 31% of all surgical abortion facilities restricted themselves to the first trimester of pregnancy," Operation rescue wrote in the report.

The survey also found that the average cost of first-trimester abortions hit a record high of $603 in 2019, while the average wait time for an abortion appointment remained under a week, which is two-weeks under the average wait to have an appointment with a family physician. 

“Much of the data gathered during our survey this year either debunks pro-abortion rhetoric or red-flags dangerous trends,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We see women being exploited by rising prices and a rush to get abortions done. We also see abortion becoming riskier with the new push into dangerous late-term abortions. This information exposes areas where more can be done to save lives.”

Department of Justice Says ERA has Expired and Must be Reintroduced to be Ratified

Equal Rights Amendment Demonstration

Some Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives have been working to revive the Equal Rights Amendment, an expired proposal that was introduced in 1972. These lawmakers want to continue the process of state ratification from where it was left; retaining the votes of states that elected to ratify the amendment nearly half-a-century ago. The Department of Justice's Legal Counsel has now issued an opinion reiterating that to ratify the ERA or anything similar to it, a new amendment must be introduced to Congress and start the process from the beginning.

“We conclude that the ERA Resolution has expired and is no longer pending before the States,” the opinion reads. “Even if one or more state legislatures were to ratify the 1972 proposal, that action would not complete the ratification of the amendment, and the ERA’s adoption could not be certified under 1 U.S.C. § 106b. In addition, we conclude that when Congress uses a proposing clause to impose a deadline on the States’ ratification of a proposed constitutional amendment, that deadline is binding and Congress may not revive the proposal after the deadline’s expiration.”

The constitutional amendment states, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” It is argued that this amendment could be interpreted as giving women the legal right to abortion, but it could have even greater effects such as forcing women to enlist in the draft.

Court of Appeals Rules Against University of Alberta's $17,500 Fee Deterring Pro-Life Speech

The Alberta Court of Appeal ruled Monday that the University of Alberta could not levy a fee against the student group UAlberta Pro-Life in order to pay for supposed security concerns.

The University of Alberta told UAlberta Pro-Life in 2016 that they would require a $17,500 security fee if they wanted to hold a two-day campus event including a stationary display. The previous year, the organization attempted to hold a similar event, but other students intervened by obstructing and interrupting the event. Rather than enforcing the University's code of conduct against the students, the institution chose to let their conduct go unpunished. Some students even publicly gloated on social media that they were able to silence the speech of their pro-life peers.

By imposing this fee on the pro-life group, supposedly to pay for security concerns, the university blamed the pro-life students for the content of their event and held them responsible for any actions radical pro-abortion students took to stifle their speech. The court of appeal's decision is a huge win for free speech on college campuses. It hopefully means that the school's policies will apply equally to all students in the future.

Nick Sandmann Reaches Settlement with CNN in $250 Million Defamation Lawsuit

CNN agreed on Tuesday to a settlement with pro-life teen Nick Sandmann to resolve a $250 million defamation lawsuit levied against the news outlet.

Nick Sandmann was attending March for Life in Washington D.C. with his Catholic school class when a fringe group started to shout racist taunts. In response, his classmates started to perform a school chant to attempt to drown out the taunts. A Native American man associated with neither group approached Nick Sandmann during this chaos and beat his drum while performing a chant of his own. A camera captured this moment, and the media reported claims that Nick Sandmann and his class approached and harassed the Native American.

These claims were false, and further information quickly confirmed that the man approached the students with his drum, not the other way around. Some outlets refused to retract their stories or issue corrections, so the students filed lawsuits against those news outlets; CNN being one of them.

There are still many lawsuits pending over media reporting of this event, including a $275 million suit against NBCUniversal and a $250 million suit against the Washington Post.

Baby's Life Support Extended until Appeals Court Hears Case Against Texas Advanced Directives Act

Tinslee Lewis
A Texas appeals court ordered that 11-month-old Tinslee Lewis's life support will be extended until it rules in a case her mother brings against the Texas Advanced Directives Act. This law governs when the hospital can legally remove life support.

Tinslee Lewis has spent her entire life at Cook Children's Medical Center, where she was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect, chronic lung disease, and severe chronic high blood pressure. Tinslee has further developed severe sepsis. She requires a ventilator, cardiac support, painkillers, sedation, and medical paralysis.

Cook Children's said it “has been devoted to this precious baby her entire life, providing compassionate, round-the-clock, intensive care and attention since she arrived at our hospital 11months ago. Her body is tired. She is suffering. It’s time to end this cycle because, tragically, none of these efforts will ever make her better.”

The hospital says it contacted over 20 medical professionals regarding Tinslee's conditions, and none of them knew how to save her.

Under the Texas Advanced Directives Act, if a patient's doctor and an ethics or medical committee agree that ongoing life support is medically inappropriate, but the patient or someone responsible for them still requests treatment, the medical facility is not required to provide treatment after 10 days once they notify all parties of the decision. This "10-day rule" also requires that a physician make a reasonable effort to transfer the patient to a physician who will continue providing treatment.

Pro-life advocates are conflicted about the ethics of the Texas Advanced Directives Act. Texas Alliance for Life and the Texas Catholic bishop's conference argue that the law provides a balanced approach to the situation, while Texas Right to Life, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and Attorney General Ken Paxton wish to have the law overturned.

In a joint statement, the Governor and Attorney General said,
“The Attorney General’s office is involved in the ongoing litigation, fighting to see that due process and the right to life are fully respected by Texas law. The Attorney General’s office will be supporting an appeal of this case to the Second Court of Appeals. The State of Texas is fully prepared to continue its support of Ms. Lewis in the Supreme Court if necessary. We are working diligently to do all we can to ensure that Tinslee and her family are provided the care and support that they seek.”

Operation Rescue Survey: Number of Surgical Abortion Facilities at Record Low; Chemical Abortion Facilities Increasing

On Jan 6, 2020, Operation Rescue released its annual survey on the number of abortion facilities in the United States. The survey shows that over 2019, the total number of abortion facilities increased from 701 to 710, but the number of surgical abortion facilities has reached a record low of 464.

“The decline in surgical abortion facilities is terrible news for the Abortion Cartel, but great news for women and their babies,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Surgical abortion facilities are still the most profitable, especially if they conduct abortions past the first trimester when prices – and profits – really soar. When they shut down it saves lives and takes money out of the pockets of the abortionists.”

Operation Rescue's survey reinforces that chemical abortion is rising in popularity as an abortion method. Surgical abortion clinics tend to offer both chemical and surgical abortions, but chemical abortions only provide abortion through the use of medication. Out of the 710 abortion clinics Operation Rescue counted, 246 of them only provide chemical abortions. This number is likely to continue increasing since abortion-inducing drugs are easier and cheaper to provide than surgical abortions. Over the past decade, there has been a 46% increase in the number of clinics that only provide chemical abortions.

Planned Parenthood Shows Record-Breaking Abortion Statistics in Annual Report

Planned Parenthood released its annual report for 2018-2019 in which the abortion corporation reported performing a total of 345,672 abortions, a record number for the company. Simultaneously, the number of other services provided by Planned Parenthood continues to fall.

That figure represents roughly 40% of abortions reported by the Guttmacher Institute, showing Planned Parenthood has a clear hold on the abortion industry. The corporation's political stance may also be an image problem for Planned Parenthood, however.

While the number of abortions Planned Parenthood provides may have risen, the number of other services Planned Parenthood provided fell. It provided 2,556,413 "birth control services" in 2018, a number that was 36% higher twelve years ago. Planned Parenthood provided 2,011,637 instances of "cancer screening and prevention services" in 2005, but barely provided a quarter of that in 2018 with a total of 566,186. Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms.

Planned Parenthood is an abortion business first and foremost, and its numbers reflect this. When tax dollars are repeatedly funneled into Planned Parenthood, they will always be primarily subsidizing abortion.

New Jersey Governor Signs Bill Giving $9.5 Million to Fund Abortion Clinics

Pro-Abortion Gov. Phil Murphy dressed in a pink tie, pink pocket square, and pink socks to address the public about his recent signature of bill A5802. His signature immediately allocated state funds through the current fiscal year (ending June 30).

“Planned Parenthood made a conscious decision to continuing providing vital information to their patients, knowing it would cost them much-needed federal funds,” Gov. Murphy said, referring to Planned Parenthood's decision to reject Title X funding because the organization did not want to comply with new pro-life rules.

The rules required family planning grantees to stop co-locating with abortion providers or referring patients to abortion providers. More and more states have chosen to attempt to replace the federal funds abortion corporations lost by allocating state funds to keep them afloat.

207 Congress Members File Amicus Brief to Supreme Court in Support of Louisiana Abortion Regulation

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.)
A total of 207 congress members have voiced their support of a Louisiana abortion regulation together in an amicus brief to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court will decide the fate of a Louisiana law which requires abortionists to maintain admitting privileges at a hospital in order to practice surgical abortions. This would treat abortion clinics like any other facility that offers surgical procedures in Louisiana.

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), Senator John Kennedy (R-La.), Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Congressman Mike Johnson (R-La.) led the group by addressing the press.

“I’m proud to lead the fight in Congress defending Louisiana’s pro-life law that will soon come before the U.S. Supreme Court. Innocent life must be protected at every stage, and I urge the Supreme Court to uphold this law which ensures the health and safety regulations meant to protect Louisianans from the very abortionists who don’t want high standards,” said Whip Scalise.

“When our Supreme Court justices take up this Louisiana case, they will be deciding whether abortion clinics should be required to maintain the same standards as any other outpatient surgical clinic,” said Senator Kennedy. “The health and lives of these women are at stake. We aren’t asking abortion clinics to close down; we’re demanding they protect their patients by securing admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. It’s a common-sense law, and we need to uphold this law which helps protect the lives of women and their unborn children.”

The abortion industry, headed by June Medical Services, has fought this legislation all the way to the Supreme Court. The state of Louisiana retaliated by challenging the ability of abortionists to challenge legislation designed to protect their patients.

Indiana AG Preliminary Report Says the 2,400+ Bodies Abortionist Ulrich Klopfer Hid could not be Identified

Late abortionist Ulrich Klopfer
Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill has released a preliminary report in the investigation of late abortionist Ulrich Klopfer's conduct.

Ulrich Klopfer became the focus of national news stories after a lawyer for Klopfer's family found the bodies of hundreds of aborted children in the abortionist's home while going over Klopfer's estate. Klopfer's home may have been in Will County, Illinois, but the 2,400+ bodies found by authorities were most likely transported across state lines from Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend Indiana where he performed abortions.

From the preliminary report:
The fetal remains were in various states of decay. The remains were mostly found inside molding boxes and old Styrofoam coolers containing large red medical waste bags. It appeared as though each remain had been placed in a small clear plastic specimen bag for purposes of being medically preserved in a chemical suspected to be formalin, a formaldehyde derivative. However, many of the bags degraded over time and/or suffered damage, resulting in leakage from the individual bags into the outer bag, box, or cooler.

Various personal health information was written on the front of the individual bags in black marker. The information displayed on the bags in certain instances included a patient chart number, date, and/or initials of the patient. However, the personal health information written on the individual bags varied greatly, and some of the information written on the individual bags was missing, contained errors, or had eroded over time due to the formalin leakage.
This is disturbing on many levels. Not only did Klopfer make a living from ending the lives of preborn children, but he kept the bodies seemingly as trophies along with sensitive medical information about his patients. Furthermore, the families who seek closure on this issue will never find it by having their children identified.

Judge Denies Injunction to Extend Texas Baby's Life Support

After spending all eleven months of her life at Cook Children's Medical Center (CCMC) in Fort Worth, Texas, prematurely-born Tinslee Lewis's life is being threatened. The hospital has declared intentions to remove life support for Tinslee, and Texas Fourth District Court of Appeals Chief Justice Sandee Marion ruled against the family's injunction to extend life support.

Tinslee Lewis was born with a heart defect, lung disease, severe chronic pulmonary hypertension. She underwent multiple surgeries before October; when doctors declared that she was beyond saving.

Tinslee's mother voiced her frustration with the court's decision:

“I am heartbroken over today’s decision because the judge basically said Tinslee’s life is NOT worth living. I feel frustrated because anyone in that courtroom would want more time just like I do if Tinslee were their baby. I hope that we can keep fighting through an appeal to protect Tinslee. She deserves the right to live. Please keep praying for Tinslee and thank you for supporting us during this difficult time.”

Texas Right to Life says they will file an appeal to Justice Marion's decision and have called on Republican Gov. Greg Abbott to convene a special legislative session to repeal a rule which only requires hospitals to provide 10 days of care if no new doctor steps in to help a patient.

South Korean Pastor's Baby Box Ministry Receives $64,000 Donation

Pastor Jong-rak Lee of Jurasang Community Church in South Korea received a $64,000 donation to support his baby box ministry courtesy of media company Asian Boss, who put a spotlight on his ministry with a video last summer.

Mothers or families can choose to leave a baby in their baby box so the ministry can find homes for them. Without this ministry, many of these children might otherwise be aborted. This lifesaving ministry saves 220-250 babies annually according to Pastor Lee.



With his ministry, Pastor Lee finds homes for babies that mothers feel they can't otherwise support. Sometimes they are conceived out of rape or incest. Sometimes their mothers are just very young. Other times they simply don't feel as though they have the financial resources they need. In many of the latter cases, however, the church steps in to help provide resources for families. Parents are encouraged to raise their children themselves with the help of materials provided by the church if possible. Counseling is provided and encouraged for all parents who leave children at the baby box.

Pennsylvania Bill Would Require Abortion Facilities to Post Results of Health Inspections on their Websites

Pennsylvania State Representative
Timothy O'Neal
An interesting bill introduced Pennsylvania state Representative Timothy O’Neal would require abortion facilities in the state to take additional measures to show the results of health department inspections to potential customers.

House Bill 2138 would have abortion facilities publish results of health inspections on their websites. Furthermore, it would require abortion centers to publish written plans of correction on the internet for situations in which they violate health code. With these regulatory efforts, repeated violations such as the ones committed by West Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, such as the murder of three newborn babies, might be reduced in the future.

National Right to Life Committee Urges Supreme Court to Uphold Louisiana Requirement that Abortionists Maintain Hospital Admitting Privileges

The National Right to Life Committee and Louisiana Right to Life filed documents in the Supreme Court urging justices to uphold a Louisiana "Act 620" which requires abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges.

The law was passed in response to health and safety violations in Louisiana abortion clinics which negatively impacted the safety of patients. Act 620 extended the requirements currently enforced against doctors who provide outpatient surgery at surgical centers to abortion doctors. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals already ruled that the law is constitutional, saying that the worst it could do is cause a one hour delay for abortion procedures at a Louisiana clinic.

The NRLC hopes that the Supreme Court will sustain that this delay is not an "undue burden" on women's access to abortion and prevent courts from assuming the role of a medical board on this issue.

Massachusetts District Attorney Drops Larceny Charges Against Man Who Stole Pro-Life Sign

Credit: (Jesse Costa/WBUR)
Zachary Pelletier was arrested and charged with larceny after he stole a pro-life sign from a display and was caught by police on June 18th. To the dismay of many, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins has now dropped charges against the thief.

The dismissal of this case happened so quickly that there wasn't even time for a victim impact statement to be made. The perpetrator didn't have to pay any court fees, and Massachusetts residents are left to believe that Pelletier's behavior is acceptable. Constitutionally, it violates the first amendment and could even classify as a hate crime due to the political circumstances.

Catholic Action League Executive Director C. J. Doyle commented on the District Attorney's actions:
“The question remains whether the sidewalk counselors of Operation Rescue: Boston are the objects of official indifference due to ideological bias, or have simply become the latest victims of the reckless and revolutionary nihilism of Rachael Rollins, or both. Whatever the answer, given the repeated and unpunished attacks on Christians, conservatives and pro-life Catholics in Boston in 2019, it would seem that Massachusetts is becoming, politically, a Third World society.”

Firefighters who Saved Life of Premature Baby Celebrate with Mother

Credit: DC Fire and EMS
In March, a group of firefighters in Washington DC were flagged down by a man frantically waving on the side of the road. His wife was giving birth prematurely, and they needed help.

Firefighter Terrika Hooks told reporters that they were on the way to another call, but the situation was urgent and the baby was right there. Cierra Duckett had suddenly given birth to ZaNiayh Duckett while her family was traveling back from the doctor. ZaNiayh was born inside an amniotic sac, which the firefighters had to cut open. When they did this, however, ZaNiayh wasn't breathing. As the firefighters continued to work, there was even a point when she had no pulse.

The firefighters met with the Duckett family on Christmas Eve this year to celebrate the successful survival of ZaNiayh. To commemorate the occasion, the firefighters gave ZaNiayh a baby-size firefighter uniform.

UK Woman Recorded Audio of Boyfriend Strangling her and Telling her to Abort their Child.

Credit: Wales Online
Leah Collard released an audio recording of her ex-boyfriend assaulting and harassing her in hopes that she could bring awareness to abusive relationships and the trauma they cause.

In the recording, her boyfriend David Williams laughs while she cries in pain and repeatedly tells him to stop or get off her. "What are you gonna do about it?" he says. When he starts to strangle her, Collard exclaims, "You want to kill your child do you?" to which he responds, "Who the f*** would want to have a baby with you?" He simply tells her, "Get an abortion," and then holds her in place while repeatedly telling her to tear her ultrasound pictures.

Collard says in an interview with Wales Online that she stayed in the relationship for so long because she didn't believe she would be financially stable enough to care for kids and Williams threatened to kill himself if she left. “It is hard because when someone is controlling you it is like you can’t live your own life. You’ve lived your life through them for so long that you just don’t know what to do... They can make you scared of them but also completely dependent on them.”

Abortion in many scenarios is simply another way that abusive men can control women and avoid consequences such as having to pay child support. In these situations women don't need more access to abortion, they need resources to help them get out of their abusive relationships without fearing for their physical or financial safety.

Mother Writes that Doctors Refused to Help her Child Born Three Days Before "Viability" Cut-off

A Georgia woman went to Facebook early this month to describe her experience giving birth to a boy whom doctors refused to help because he was born three days before their viability cut-off.

She rejected doctor recommendations to abort her baby, whom she named Kailor, and struggled throughout her pregnancy with bleeding. The woman required ten transfusions in order to reach 22 weeks and 4 days. Despite how far she made it, terrible medical practice prevented Kailor from having any chance at survival. The mother gave birth while waiting for nine hours for an ambulance to arrive. Kailor was born inside an amniotic sac, which wasn't cut for seven minutes after he was born. He lived for 51 minutes total, and doctors issued a do not resuscitate order against the family's wishes.

Stories like this are becoming increasingly common as hospitals enforce strict viability cut-offs that deny prematurely born children decent medical care. It is sad that such a horrible human rights violation could become normal practice within the United States.

Chief Medical Officer of Unlicensed St. Louis Abortion Clinic Lies During House Committee Hearing

Dr. Colleen McNicholas, the chief medical officer of Planned Parenthood of St. Louis, testified in front of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform during a hearing on "women's reproductive health." At several points, McNicholas made statements that simply untrue and were purely designed to deceive legislators.

McNicholas responded to questions about the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act by claiming that abortion survivors don't exist. She claims that abortion works with 100% success and children are never born once abortion is attempted. This is easily demonstrated to be false since the CDC reports abortion survivors from states which collect that information. She further argued that the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was harmful.

“There are several harms. The first is which using that language and perpetuating the notion that that is actually a real thing is harmful in and of itself. And it only serves two purposes. The first is to shame people […] who need life-saving care in the second and third trimester of pregnancy. It also creates an environment in which abortion providers like myself and my colleagues are targeted and harassed.”

McNicholas also claimed during the hearing that, “Planned Parenthood has never sold fetal tissue and currently doesn’t and never has.” This comes just after David Dalieden was sued by Planned Parenthood for having exposed them of selling human body parts so medical institutions could use them to perform research.

This radical abortion advocate was even bold enough to refuse to say whether she would abort a baby who was considered viable under the law, saying that every reason a mother might have to abort their child is a valid one.

Ambulance Called to Fairview Heights Planned Parenthood "Mega Facility" Less than a Week after Opening

Less than a week after opening, the "mega clinic" Planned Parenthood built secretly using a shell company called an ambulance to assist one of its patients.

According to Coalition for Life St. Louis, the woman in need of assistance was "conscious, but in major distress and very pale." The organization further criticized Planned Parenthood's lies regarding the safety of the clinic: “While the public was told that this new facility would be better and safer for women, those performing abortions in Fairview Heights don’t have to be regulated, or even doctors. This facility was built to avoid the health and safety measures in place in Missouri.”

The clinic was most likely built to offer abortions to vulnerable women across state lines in Missouri. The future of Missouri's only remaining Planned Parenthood clinic is unclear as the state's clinic regulations are disputed in court, but even if the St. Louis clinic closes in 2020, Missouri residents will be drawn to the Fairview Heights clinic in Illinois, where abortion is essentially unregulated.

Man Pleads Guilty to Paying Money to Have Girlfriend Killed Because She Wouldn't Abort

VonTrey Clark
VonTrey Clark, an ex-Austin police officer who was extradited from Indonesia where he fled to escape charges in 2015, was convicted of offering money to have Samantha Dean, his pregnant girlfriend, murdered because she refused to abort their child.

Before September, Clark pled not guilty to charges related to Dean's death. This plea change resulted in him receiving life in prison rather than the death penalty. Witnesses say he offered $5,000 to have Dean murdered.

Taylor Dean, Samantha Dean's younger sister, spoke directly to Clark during the trial:

“The one person that I can turn to for moral advice or support is gone, thanks to you,” Taylor Dean said. “You stole my favorite person.

“But that’s not all. You stole an innocent child, you stole my niece. It’s incredible that someone so small could bring so much joy,” she went on. “You stole our future memories, too.”

Pro-Abortion Advocates Plan to Fight for Repeal of Parental Notification in 2020

Illinois State Capitol

Terry Cosgrove, president of the pro-abortion political action committee Personal PAC, recently told POLITICO that repealing Illinois' parental notification law is their “biggest priority” in 2020.

The Illinois Parental Notification of Abortion Act requires abortion clinics to notify parents before performing an abortion on a patient 17 years old or younger. The act was passed in 1995, but pro-life advocates may have to fight to keep it on the books in 2020.

Illinois Right to Life Executive Director Mary Kate Knorr responded to the news from POLITICO with an explanation of why parental notification is so important.

“This is purely predatory behavior by Terry Cosgrove and Planned Parenthood of Illinois,” said Knorr. “They are preying on minor girls and strategically forcing parents out of the conversation to cash in on their vulnerability.”

“This is a direct attack on the rights of parents – not just across the state, but across the Midwest. Repealing this law does not protect girls in crisis; on the contrary, it protects their abusers and traffickers by opening the door for coercion and forced abortions.”

New HHS Rule Helps Protect Taxpayers from Funding Abortion

The department of Health and Human Services announced that it will enforce a new rule designed to prevent publicly funded health insurance programs from using federal tax dollars.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar stated that these rules will require health insurance plans that use federal funding and provide abortion care will have to bill abortion care separately from other insurance.

“Being good stewards of taxpayer dollars and faithfully implementing the law are among the most important duties HHS has, and that’s what we’re doing with this rule. The rule is part of much broader efforts at CMS, under Administrator Verma, to improve program integrity and reduce improper payments.

“In addition, when an exchange plan covers abortions for which public funding is prohibited by federal law, this rule requires that customers receive separate bills for that abortion coverage and for the rest of their insurance. Providing these separate bills is an essential step in implementing the Affordable Care Act’s bar on tax credits going toward coverage of abortions for which public funding is prohibited. The separate billing requirement fulfills Congress’ intent and reflects President Trump’s strong commitment to preventing taxpayer funding of abortion coverage.”

A California Bill would have Helped Patients Recognize Abuse During Pelvic Exams. After Planned Parenthood Lobbying, it was Tabled.

A bill designed to protect patients from sexual abuse during pelvic exams was tabled with help from Planned Parenthood lobbying.

After authorities started an investigation against a California doctor accused of sexually assaulting young students when they had pelvic exams, the state senate introduced California Assembly Bill 1030. The bill would have required patients to be informed about what a pelvic exam is, what predatory behavior during a pelvic exam is and how to report it, be given a pamphlet produced by the California government in conjunction with several medical organizations, and to sign a document saying that they received the pamphlet.

The bill garnered bipartisan support and was expected to pass until Planned Parenthood began lobbying against it. In a letter of opposition, the abortion corporation stated it, “creates additional barriers for patients to access reproductive health care. … Based on the number of gynecological exams Planned Parenthood conducts, we believe this requirement will increase the length of patient visits and thus unintentionally cause patient volume to decrease.”

It may make patients safer, but because the bill would mean fewer abortions- and less profit- Planned Parenthood opposed it. The bill was tabled and never received a vote.

West Virginia Woman Sues Department of Health and Human Services for Keeping her with her Father after he Raped her

Credit: Carol Von Canon / Flickr
A 21-year-old West Virginia woman is suing her the state's Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for allowing her to stay with her father after he raped her and her mother forced her into abortion.

The woman claims she was raped by her father when she was only 11 years old. She was put into foster care due to her mother's neglect and later placed in her father's home despite his criminal history of domestic abuse (even though her sisters were still placed in other homes). After she became pregnant, she told others that the father was another boy she knew but secretly confided with her mother, who informed DHHS. When employees came, they discussed the issue in front of both the victim and her father. The girl recanted her story, later saying that she did not want her father to go to jail. When DHHS said they wanted a tissue sample from the child to confirm who the father was, the girl's mother had already forced her into abortion by taking her to another state.

DHHS failed to place this girl in a safe home and later failed to protect her from abuse by both parents. To complete the story, an abortion clinic was all too happy to accept payment and cover her father's tracks. Abortion's role as a tool to protect rapists from being caught is a disgusting one, and yet another reason the practice of abortion should be removed from our culture.

Google Employee Sued for Assaulting Pro-Life Protester

The Life Legal Defense Foundation announced on Thursday that it filed a lawsuit against Google employee Quinn Chasan on behalf of Michael Gribbin.

Gribbin was peacefully protesting in front of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Washington DC this September by holding a sign and writing pro-life messages with chalk on the sidewalk when Chasan approached him and got they got into an argument. According to Gribbin, Chasan erased the messages and stole his chalk. At this point, Gribbin took out his phone and recorded Chasan as he threw the chalk and walked away. Gribbin attempted to prevent Chasan from leaving on his bike, but Chasan retaliated by assaulting the protestor.


John Garza, an attorney for Life Legal, says Chasan committed a battery against Gribbin which constitutes a hate crime since it was fueled by political and religious prejudice.

Assisted Suicide Activist Gets Media Spotlight

Right to Die activist Philip Nitschke has become a major figure in his movement, now having created a death machine called the "sarco" to asphyxiate those who wish to commit suicide by using nitrogen gas. Recently he has been interviewed by multiple news outlets. The Economist refers to him as "the bad boy of the euthanasia movement" and together with his wife as "the movement's only power couple."

As Nitschke's ideas become more popular, so does the danger to the those vulnerable to being persuaded to commit suicide. Nitschke responded to a question by National Review Online journalist Kathryn Jean Lopez about whether suicide pills should be made available to "troubled teens with the following:
"My personal position is that if we believe that there is a right to life, then we must accept that people have a right to dispose of that life whenever they want. (In the same way as the right to freedom of religion has implicit the right to be an atheist, and the right to freedom of speech involves the right to remain silent). I do not believe that telling people they have a right to life while denying them the means, manner, or information necessary for them to give this life away has any ethical consistency. 
So all people qualify, not just those with the training, knowledge, or resources to find out how to “give away” their life. And someone needs to provide this knowledge, training, or recourse necessary to anyone who wants it, including the depressed, the elderly bereaved, [and] the troubled teen. If we are to remain consistent and we believe that the individual has the right to dispose of their life, we should not erect artificial barriers in the way of sub-groups who don’t meet our criteria."
The pro-life movement must fight to protect the life of every person, regardless of their age, mental state, or ability to provide for themselves. As ideas like Nitschke's become more popular, so too does the stigma and bigotry against those whom society values less. If the pro-life movement allows these ideas to become mainstream, impulsive suicide will not only be more common, it will be encouraged.

Unconcious Patient Sent to Emergency Room Due to Hemorrhage at Aurora, Illinois Planned Parenthood


Staff at a Planned Parenthood in Aurora, Illinois called 911 after a patient hemorrhaged during an abortion. According to the call, the patient was unconscious, needed a stretcher, and the employee could only hesitantly confirm that the patient was even breathing.

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman voiced his concerns about this event and the trend of emergency vehicles being called to the Aurora clinic: “We know women have died from blood loss, and it appears that this woman was bleeding out.  We hope she made it, but honestly, there is no way to know at this time without further information. But one thing in clear: abortions at this Planned Parenthood facility are not safe.”

Police in California arrested Jagmeet Sandhu for holding his pregnant girlfriend at gunpoint and forcing her to take at least eleven pills which resulted in the death of her child. This is forced abortion. When NBC reported the story, however, they referred to the incident as "forced miscarriage," in a clear effort to protect the idea of abortion from receiving negative news coverage.

The woman had broken up with Sandhu three weeks before the incident over his constant pushing that she get an abortion.

U.S. Senator from Illinois Tammy Duckworth Criticizes New Pro-Life Federal Judge to Raise Money to Defeat Senate Republicans

Sen. Tammy Duckworth

Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth recently condemned Republican senators for confirming Sarah Pitlyk for a lifetime federal judgeship and used her criticism as a platform to fundraise against senate republicans running for election in 2020.
"Trump’s appointment and Brett Kavanaugh’s former clerk, Sarah Pitlyk, vilified women who have the audacity to want to become mothers with the help of IVF. She’s accused moms and dads who use surrogates of having “grave effects on society.” And still, Senate Republicans confirmed her to a lifetime appointment. 
Pitlyk’s confirmation should remind all of us that if Democrats don’t take back the Senate next year, Republicans could confirm countless more unfit judges like her. 
We can’t let that happen."
The "grave effects" Sen. Duckworth took out of context in her speech were not a reference to parents who could not have children otherwise, but rather a reference to the culture in vitro fertilization creates: one that monetizes the womb, creates excess embryos, and encourages sex selection and eugenics.

Mississippi Governor Says Battle over 15-Week Abortion Ban will Continue to Supreme Court

After 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Patrick Higginbotham ruled against a Mississippi law that would ban abortion 15 weeks, Republican Governor Phil Bryant stated on Twitter, “Mississippi will continue this mission to the United States Supreme Court.”

Both the decision and the governor's tweet were made public last Friday. Judge Patrick Higginbotham cited precedent as his reasoning for his ruling.

“In an unbroken line dating to Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court’s abortion cases have established (and affirmed, and re-affirmed) a woman’s right to choose an abortion before viability,” he said in the ruling. “States may regulate abortion procedures prior to viability so long as they do not impose an undue burden on the woman’s right but they may not ban abortions.”

Pro-lifers are hopeful that changes in the makeup of the Supreme Court might cause Roe v. Wade to be overturned once cases like these make it to the Supreme Court.

Safe Haven Law Saves Illinois Baby

A baby girl who was only a few hours old was safely given to a firefighter in Cicero, Illinois Friday afternoon in accordance with Illinois' Safe Haven law.

Safe Haven laws allow families who don't believe they can care for a child to hand them over to public servants at police stations, fire stations, or hospitals with no questions asked. There will be no charges against anyone who does this as long as the child is less than 30 days old and unharmed.

This is an underutilized pro-life option that allows mothers to preserve the life of their child even if they cannot support them for reasons such as finances. It is commendable that a family would go through with the pregnancy and choose this option rather than have an abortion, especially in Illinois.

"They took loving, responsible actions to make sure that this baby girl was going to be OK," said Dawn Geras, president of the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation. "If they are listening, I bless them and I thank them and I reassure them that this baby will be loved and cherished and taken care of."
