Baby saved from abortion after mother changes her mind, seeks abortion pill reversal

When Becky Buell of Sacramento, California, discovered she was pregnant with her second child at the end of her freshman year of college, she was scared and unsure of what to do. With her marriage falling apart, she feared she’d also lose the support of her parents. Becky chose to abort her baby by taking two drugs that cause a chemical abortion. She visited a Planned Parenthood facility and took the first drug, RU 486, while she was there. She was to take the second drug 24 hours later.

But immediately after taking the first drug, she regretted her decision and called the abortion pill reversal hotline (877-558-0333, abortionpillreversal.com) run by Culture of Life Family Services, the family practice of George Delgado, MD. The reversal treatment was successful and her baby was born healthy at full term.

Becky now advocates for women who change their minds, and she’s speaking out about Dr. Delgado’s work. Many women and doctors are unaware that a chemical abortion can be reversed if treatment is started quickly after the first drug is taken. Dr. Delgado and nurse manager Debbie Bradel are spreading the word and gaining the support and help of doctors across the globe. If hearts and minds can be changed in those first few hours following the chemical abortion, thousands of babies could be saved.

President Obama: ‘We are people who believe every child is entitled to life’ (but not for the preborn)

On Friday, June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling which legalized same-sex marriage across the nation. President Barack Obama, who has supported same-sex marriage since 2012, issued a statement commending the Court.

Most striking is his utterance that “we are people who believe every child is entitled to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” President Obama’s stance as the most pro-abortion president appears in direct conflict with the values he espouses. Why does Obama not see preborn children as worthy of basic human rights? How can any child “write [his] own destiny” if he has been aborted?

President Obama talks about love. What about love for the preborn? Shouldn’t we respect people, at least enough to allow them to born? Why should it matter if they are still developing inside their mother’s wombs?

51 pro-life laws have passed this year, saving babies from abortion

As we begin the second half of 2015, some pro-lifers may be discouraged by recent judicial intervention that allows abortion facilities to remain open, or prevents other pro-life laws from passing. But the truth is, the pro-life side is still winning.

This year alone, 51 new pro-life laws have been enacted. As the Guttmacher Institute reports, there have been 282 abortion restrictions since 2010. Guttmacher notes that pro-life laws passed in the first half of 2015 already exceed all of 2014.

The pro-life laws passed take on a variety of aspects, but a few themes prevail: patient safety laws—known as Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws by abortion advocates, medication abortion laws, waiting periods for abortions, and D&E abortions (usually known as “dismemberment abortions”).

Euthanasia’s Open Season on the Mentally Ill

Helping the mentally ill commit suicide was unthinkable not long ago. Today, it is a growing practice.

In the Netherlands, for example, psychiatrists legally kill their patients with the approval of colleagues and the culture. Indeed, the Dutch Journal of Psychiatry has encouraged psychiatrists to euthanize patients with severe mental illnesses...

Netherlanders responded positively to their “emancipation”: The number of euthanasia deaths of the mentally ill rose from fourteen in 2012 to forty-two in 2013. Not coincidentally, a just-released study  reports that 34 percent of the country’s general practitioners would consider euthanizing a mentally ill patient.

Belgium is even more enthusiastic than the Netherlands about euthanizing those with psychiatric illnesses. The most well-known case is that of Godelieva De Troyer, who was euthanized by oncologist and palliative medicine professor Wim Distelmans. De Troyer did not have cancer; after a lifelong struggle with depression, she consulted with Distelmans (now a famous euthanasia doctor and advocate) for the sole purpose of being made dead.

Health Care Right of Conscience Act Deadline Extended to July 31st

Health Care Right of Conscience Act - SB1564

Sponsor: Senator Biss.

The bill is on the House floor for debate and vote.  The deadline to call the bill for a vote has been extended again to July 31st giving pro-aborts even more of a chance to get the votes this bill needs to pass.  IT IS IMPORTANT TO TAKE ACTION NOW TO STOP THIS BILL.

Contact your Representative, urge them to vote NO on SB1564.

Click here to find your Representative's contact information.

This bill amends the Health Care Right of Conscience Act:  provides that notwithstanding any other law, a health care facility, or any physician or health care personnel working in the facility, may refuse to permit, perform, assist in, counsel about, suggest, recommend, refer for, or participate in health care services because of a conscience-based objection.  

This bill now undermines Healthcare Right of Conscience by requiring pro-life facilities to refer pro-abort services to other facilities thus violating their morals or beliefs.

From the bill text:

Amends the Health Care Right of Conscience Act. Makes changes in the Section concerning findings and policy. Defines "access to care and information protocols" and "material information". Provides that notwithstanding any other law, a health care facility, or any physician or health care personnel working in the facility, may refuse to permit, perform, assist in, counsel about, suggest, recommend, refer for, or participate in health care services because of a conscience-based objection only if the refusal occurs in accordance with written access to care and information protocols designed to ensure that (1) the patient receives material information in a timely fashion; and (2) the refusal will not impair the patient's health by causing delay of or inability to access the refused health care service. Provides that nothing in the Act shall be construed to prevent a health care facility from requiring that physicians or health care personnel working in the facility comply with access to care and information protocols.

This amendment requires a written referral to a facility that will complete the refused services including abortion, contraceptives and family planning.

From the bill text:

...a written document that contains the names of and contact information for health care facilities, physicians, or health care personnel that may provide the patient the particular form of health care service refused...

"Health care" is defined as any phase of patient care, including but not limited to, testing; diagnosis; prognosis; ancillary research; instructions; family planningcounsellingreferrals, or any other advice in connection with the use or procurement of contraceptives and sterilization or abortion procedures; medication; or surgery or other care or treatment rendered by a physician or physicians, nurses, paraprofessionals or health care facility, intended for the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of persons...

Although an amendment has been added to bill, the Federation for Right to Life still opposes this bill.

Lifesaving Adult Stem Cell Research & Cures Focus of Capitol Hill Hearing

A House panel responsible for advancing and monitoring the nation’s health care and research laws Thursday examined new bipartisan legislation supporting treatment and therapies derived from adult stem cell lines.

Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), author of the Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Reauthorization Act of 2015 ( HR 2820), said he was encouraged that the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health moved quickly to include the legislation in their hearing entitled: “Examining Public Health Legislation: H.R. 2820, H.R. 1344, and H.R. 1462.” Smith and Rep. Doris Matsui (D-Ca.) introduced the bill only last week with a bipartisan group of lawmakers.

“This important bipartisan legislation will save more lives,” said Smith who also authored the first law (The Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Act of 2005—P.L. 109-129) creating the National Cord Blood Inventory (NCBI) program and continuing the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation program. Smith said “The adult stem cells found in bone marrow and cord blood provide hope not only for curing the diseases and conditions currently known, but they also set the stage for even more cures in the future.”

ObamaCare issue still on the table

On Thursday, the high court upheld the nationwide tax subsidies in the Affordable Care Act. But the justices didn't address the subsidy in insurance exchanges for elective abortions.

"The Government Accounting Office [GAO] said that there are more than 1,000 federally subsidized exchange plans that cover elective abortions," explains Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee. "So if a woman decides she wants the abortion, the insurance plan covered by federal subsidies will pay for that abortion."

That would appear to violate the Hyde Amendment, which bars use of federal money for abortions with limited exceptions.

Supreme Court Decision Underscores Need for No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act

“Federal taxpayer subsidies are helping pay for over 1,000 health plans that cover abortion on demand, and today’s Supreme Court decision underscores that only Congress can put a stop to that,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.

“This decision again demonstrates the need for enactment of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which would permanently prevent taxpayer subsidies for abortion-covering health plans, both in Obamacare and in other federal health benefits programs,” Tobias said.

In September 2014, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the nonpartisan investigatory arm of Congress, issued a report [www.gao.gov/products/GAO-14-742R] containing information that confirmed predictions by National Right to Life that federally subsidized abortion-covering health plans would become a widespread feature of Obamacare. That report found that more than one thousand federally subsidized exchange plans currently cover elective abortion. Currently, 26 states and the District of Columbia allow coverage of elective abortion in health plans that qualify for the federal subsidies (while 24 states have restricted or prohibited such coverage).

The pro-life citizens of Aurora may have their day in court

The pro-life citizens of Aurora, Illinois may have their day in court in an ongoing battle with a Planned Parenthood facility.

Eight years ago, Planned Parenthood began construction of an abortion mega-center in Aurora, moving the permit process under the radar as a business, not the non-profit it actually is.

Peter Breen, special counsel for the Thomas More Society, alleges the facility violated zoning ordinances but City of Aurora officials "side-stepped" the zoning issue.

Breen, Peter (Thomas More Society)When the zoning code declares the area is a commercial district, and the Planned Parenthood operation is a non-profit, "well that clearly doesn't meet the terms of the applicable zoning ordinance," Breen complains.

Prolife attorney warns Illinois of federal funding loss if "right of conscience" bill becomes law

Illinois could endanger federal health care funding if a pending "right of conscience" bill a state law, a prolife attorney told the Republican Assembly of Lake County last week at their monthly meeting.

Dan McConchie of Americans United for Life spoke Thursday, June 18 meeting of the Republican Assembly of Lake County regarding Illinois SB 1564. As amended by Senate Amendment 3 the law would would weaken the conscience protections afforded to healthcare providers. The bill passed in the Senate with two Republican votes. It has not passed in the House yet.

The attack on the freedom of conscience advances a radical ideology and fails to meet any demonstrated need. The refusal of service stories are manufactured by Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to advance their agenda.

Taylor Swift helps fans announce pregnancy


Most everyone we told before we posted on social media found out by us showing them our Taylor Swift picture. It was fun because the reactions were all pretty similar. First “Wow that’s so cool you got to meet her” or “She is really beautiful and tall” then “Wait… what’s that sign say?!”

“Abortion Drone” scheduled for Launch June 27

Look! Up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

No, it’s an abortion drone, launched by the same folks who brought you the “abortion ship,” abortion hotlines where you can learn how to self-abort, and the “I need an abortion” website where you can order abortifacients: “Women on Waves.”

Before going further, I must emphasize that although the following might sound as if it is a figment of my imagination—how could this possible be true, you might ask– the following is actually in the works, according to multiple media outlets.

The plan is to have a drone carrying abortion pills launch from Frankfurt, Germany, cross the border and deliver mifepristone (RU-486) and a prostaglandin (misoprostol) to women in Slubice, Poland, where abortion laws are highly protective.

'Selfie' with contraceptives for extra credit?

A geometry teacher in Alameda, California, has been suspended after suggesting that students who wanted to boost their grades look for their parents' contraceptives and take "selfies" with them. While Encinal High School officials are dismissing the assignment as a joke, at least one student took teacher Wing-Wah Leung seriously. That student's selfie was shown as an example in class.

Valerie Huber, executive director of the National Abstinence Education Association, says even if it was a prank, it's something parents need to be wary of.

"... It's sending a disturbing message to teens, to youths that any kind of sexual experimentation, discussion, and encroaching on privacy, even of parents, is a green light," says Huber. "And that's certainly not the message that our schools and our teachers should be communicating."

“Care Planning Act” Introduced in US Senate

When Sarah Palin (wrongly) said that insurance payments for advance planning under Obamacare were “death panels”–there are other such potentialities in the law, but not that–she killed the provision.

Ever since, politicians of both parties have been struggling to bring it back.

The latest bipartisan attempt–S 1549–has been filed by Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Senator Mark Warner (D-VA).

Tax dollars could be spent to “nudge” older people to agree to premature death under Senate bill

Last week, U.S. Senators Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) introduced S. 1549, the Care Planning Act of 2015, to use federal tax dollars to pay health care professionals to counsel older people in deciding whether to accept or reject life-preserving medical treatment, food and fluids.

On its face, S. 1549 purports to promote neutral, fully informed “advance care planning” that will assist patients to implement their own values in legally valid directives. Unfortunately, however, there is abundant evidence, documented in the March 2015 NRLC report “The Bias Against Life-Preserving Treatment in Advance Care Planning,” that a combination of cost pressures and the ideological commitment of a significant number of health care providers to hastening death for those deemed to have a “poor quality of life” would in practice lead to many federally funded advance care planning sessions being used to exercise subtle – or not-so-subtle – pressure to agree to reject life-preserving treatment.

Entities conducting such programs openly boast of how much money they have saved insurance companies by inducing patients to reject expensive life-saving medical treatment. Advocates believe it will save Medicare money as well.

Kids give Pro-Life answers without hesitation

While abortion advocates paint a bleak picture for parents who conceive unintended pregnancies, children see right past the agenda to the heart of the matter: A human Life has been created, and he or she deserves to live no matter what. In fact, the children seem baffled by the interviewer’s insinuation that not having the time or ability to care for a child would justify killing him or her.

“What if you can’t take care of it?” one interviewer asked. “Somebody else could take care of it,” one child quickly responded. “I would send it to a babysitter,” said another.

But, prodding deeper, the interviewers asked: “What if the baby was still in the mommy’s tummy? Is [abortion] OK then?”

Children, again, answered without hesitation: “No.” A little boy who said he wishes for the superpower of “strength to fight bad guys,” said, “Well it is a bad thing to kill a baby, because you would kill somebody.”

Unlike Illinois, Michigan Gov. Signs Bills Protecting Freedom of Adoption Agencies

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed into law three bills protecting the freedom of private adoption agencies to operate in accordance with their beliefs. The Michigan law comes on the same day the North Carolina legislature protected the religious liberty of clerks and magistrates in that state over the governor’s veto.

In 2011, Illinois went in the opposite direction, forcing private agencies to place adoptive children with unmarried, cohabitating couples—including same-sex couples—or be stripped of state contracts. As a result, the Evangelical Child and Family Agency, numerous Catholic Charities affiliates and other faith-based organizations in the state were forced to stop serving over 2,000 children. Similar situations have happened in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C., where the redefinition of marriage—coupled with sexual orientation policies—required all faith-based providers to place children with same-sex couples.

New UN agenda could enable massive global expansion of abortion

A massive, well-funded push to increase access to abortion worldwide could be underway at the United Nations, and according to one congressman it could silence faith-based organizations which oppose abortions out of conscience.

At issue is proposed language in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals that will eventually be voted on and adopted by the U.N. General Assembly in September, and will go into effect in 2016.

If the current proposed language is adopted, it could result in “unfettered access to abortion” around the globe, according to the office of Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), who is co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus.

The language establishes targets for global development, among them to “ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services” by 2030.

Shock: NARAL sends email claiming “babies” in utero feel pain

The email was signed by a NARAL supporter, Dana Weinstein, asking for donations to NARAL to fight HR 36, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks (5 months). She writes, “When I was more than 20 weeks pregnant, my doctor discovered our baby had horrifying severe fetal anomalies that could not have been discovered earlier in pregnancy.”

It’s strange enough to see NARAL using the term “baby” to describe the “products of conception” that the pro-abortion movement has worked so hard to dehumanize — to the point that the media now frequently refer to abandoned babies as “fetuses.”

But even stranger is what comes next. Weinstein writes, “If I’d carried our wanted and loved baby to term, she would have survived only for a short time, in a world of immense suffering. So we chose to end our baby’s pain.”

Again, the word “baby” — even “loved baby,” as if it were possible for this valueless being in the womb to be the proper object for human love. But even more shocking is the admission that children in the womb can feel pain.

State-by-state survey concludes 12% decline in abortions since 2010

A survey by the Associated Press of the health departments of the 45 states that compile abortion data on a comprehensive basis concludes that there has been a 12% decrease in the number of abortions since 2010. [1]

According to the AP’s David Crary

With one exception, the data was from either 2013 or 2014 — providing a unique nationwide gauge of abortion trends during a wave of anti-abortion laws that gathered strength starting in 2011.

All states, with the exceptions of Louisiana and Michigan, experienced a reduction. In both cases, both sides to the abortion debate attribute the increase to an influx of women from Texas and Ohio, respectively. The numbers include both surgical abortions and chemically-induced (“RU-486”) abortions.

Federal appeals court upholds Texas’ historic pro-life HB 2

Pro-abortion attorneys have vowed to quickly appeal a decision by a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals which upheld the bulk of Texas’s historic HB 2, the 2013 law which then-state Senator Wendy Davis famously filibustered.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared that the unanimous ruling by Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod, Catharina Haynes, and Edward C. Prado represented a “vindication of the careful deliberation by the Texas Legislature to craft a law to protect the health and safety of Texas women.”

Attorney General Ken Paxton said “Abortion practitioners should have no right to operate their businesses from sub-standard facilities and with doctors who lack admitting privileges at a hospital.” He added, “This ruling will help protect the health and well-being of Texas women. I am proud to have both supported this law in the legislature and defended it in the courts. …. HB 2 both protects the unborn and ensures Texas women are not subjected to unsafe and unhealthy conditions.”

What do you want to know about adult stem cell research?

Dr. David Prentice of the Charlotte Lozier Institute tells OneNewsNow the overall project, StemCellResearchFacts.org, is designed to educate people about the success with research on ethical adult stem cells.

"That debate has kind of gone away a little bit, but most people will remember the debates over embryonic versus adult stem cells, and, of course, the short story is that embryonic -- you have to destroy a young human life to get embryonic stem cells, and they haven't helped anybody," he explains. "They haven't even helped that many lab mice."

But adult stem cells, which can be obtained in various ways, such as from fat or skin, have helped many people. The Charlotte Lozier Institute has made videos on the successes and posted them at the new website.

Woman aborts 18 girls to give her husband the son he wants

Most of us don’t pay much attention to the issue of sex-selective abortion – either because we think it doesn’t affects us, or because we don’t realize how widespread it is and how much it is affecting our world. But its impact reaches far and wide, even here in the United States.

We are all aware of the population control that occurs in China with its one child policy. Most parents there want a boy, so over the years, the ratio of males to females born has been greatly altered. In 2004, the ratio was 121.2 boys for every 100 girls. The natural ratio is 103 to 106 boys for every 100 girls. But it isn’t just China.

One such woman had already given birth to four daughters, and was depressed for not conceiving a son. She recently admitted on Vietnam television that she aborted 18 baby girls in order to give her husband the son he wants.

Abortion clinic director admits at conference: ‘You’re killing a life’

New York abortion clinic director and owner Merle Hoffman, who has since retired, said the following at a conference of the National Abortion Federation:

… I mean, we are talking about an abortion here. And, also that the staff is uncomfortable when a patient said, “I think I’m killing my baby.” So I’m comfortable with saying, “Yes, you are, and how do you feel about that?” You know – “Oh, you are. You’re killing a life. You’re killing a potential life.” I mean, my God, if you don’t do that, in nine months you do have a live baby.

NRLC President Tobias provides deeper meaning of new Gallup Poll on abortion

You probably remember that for the first time in seven years, Gallup found more people identified as “pro-choice” (50%) than pro-life (44%). While, of course, NRLC would rather the numbers be reversed, Tobias explained that operationally, a majority is much closer to the pro-life position than the pro-choice position.

In other words when you go past self-identification to the question of what conditions people believe abortion should be legal in, you find that a majority say abortion “should be illegal in all circumstances” (19%) or legal “in only a few circumstances” (36%)–a total of 55%.

By contrast a total of just 42% said abortion should be legal “under any circumstances” (29%) or legal “in most circumstances” (13%).

Bruce Jenner wanted ex-wife to abort daughter


Bruce Jenner wanted his first wife to get an abortion when she found out she was pregnant during the middle of their divorce in the late 1970s, his daughter said.  In the same interview where Jenner made his debut as “Caitlyn,” Casey Jenner (pictured) told Vanity Fair the story of her birth.

Jenner married Chrystie Crownover in 1972, and the two had a son, Burt. They found out she was pregnant with Casey halfway through their divorce, and Casey said her mom told her that Bruce first suggested getting an abortion but “rejected it after 30 seconds.”…

But Chrystie once said the plan for the abortion went a lot further than just “30 seconds.” In a 1981 interview with People magazine, she said she came close to going through with the abortion simply because Bruce wanted it, even going as far as to pay for it.

Abortionist: ‘A fetus is nothing’

The abortionists who perform these sad and brutal procedures where babies are killed and women scarred for life, are sometimes challenged by stigma, pro-life pressures, and the grisliness of procedures, while some seem to be in it for the money.

For others, performing abortions is an altruistic calling. They believe they are making the lives of women better, or saving them from illegal, back alley abortions. Whether they fully believe this in their hearts, one can only wonder. Some seem to genuinely believe that they are on the side of the angels, making the world a better place for women by killing their unwanted children, setting them free to pursue their goals without hindrance. The fact that the babies have to die is just collateral damage.

In fact, some abortionists even deny the reality that abortion kills babies. They look at the bodies of torn apart babies on a daily basis and manage to convince themselves that these children aren’t human.

Wisconsin bill would allow fathers to sue late-term abortionists

Wisconsin Assembly Bill 237 would ban abortions after 20 weeks “postfertilization,” which doctors would measure as 22 weeks of pregnancy since pregnancies are usually measured from the woman’s last menstrual period. If the bill becomes law, doctors who perform an abortion after this time could be charged with a felony and fined up to $10,000, or face up to three and a half years in prison.

In addition to those penalties, the bill would allow the father to sue the doctor for damages, “including damages for personal injury and emotional and psychological distress,” if the doctor performs or attempts to perform an abortion after the 20-week limit. The man does not need to be married to the woman or even in a relationship with her to sue her doctor, as long as the pregnancy is not a result of sexual assault or incest. The bill also says the woman can sue.

The Reason for Euthanasia Word Engineering

The euthanasia movement has always tried to change the meanings and definitions of descriptive words and phrases as the honey that helps the hemlock go down. That is why assisted suicide–again accurate and descriptive–is called by movement propagandists ”death with dignity” or “aid in dying.”

We live in a time of feeling over thinking, and so such blatant word engineering tactics have an impact. The recent Gallup Poll shows a 20% increase in support for assisted suicide if it is described euphemistically as opposed to accurately described.

This is why the George Soros-funded Compassion and Choices pushes “aid in dying” so hard. It’s a game of hide the ball.

Hawking: Suicide if I Become a Burden, Can’t Contribute

I have been warning that the high-profile normalization of assisted suicide–and the media celebrating those who kill themselves in the face of disease–is leading toward an ethic in which people kill themselves to not be a ”burden,” in essence, a moral duty to die.

And now the great physicist Stephen Hawking has joined the parade, saying he would commit assisted suicide if he was no longer contributing or felt like a burden.

By saying that being a burden or unable to contribute justifies suicide–the actual issue is rarely pain, which can significantly alleviated–Hawking abandons those who should be able to look to him as an inspiration for keeping on keeping on.

Senator Graham to reintroduce Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in U.S. Senate!

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has announced that he will introduce the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the U.S. Senate the week of June 8, 2015.

This bill would extend general protection to unborn children nationwide beginning at 20 weeks fetal age, based on congressional recognition that by this point in development, if not earlier, the unborn child is capable of experiencing pain.The bill is based on model legislation developed by National Right to Life, already enacted in 11 states.  On May 13, 2015, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36) by a vote of 242-184.

It is easy for you to send email messages to your two U.S. senators, urging them to sign on as original Senate cosponsors of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  Just use our "Take Action" link, enter your zip code, and you will be taken to a page that shows you the names of your two U.S. senators, along with a suggested message (you can modify the suggested message however you see fit).  Be sure that you enter your contact information in the places provided, so that your senators' offices will recognize that the communication comes from a constituent, and so that you can receive a reply from the senator(s).
