Who’s paying millions for this abortion training program? Taxpayers.

Abortion training is being orchestrated out of a University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) program which receives millions in government dollars. UCSF trains abortion providers through their Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health. According to Bixby’s annual reports, in 2014, nearly $22 million dollars (52 percent) of Bixby’s revenue came from the taxpayer, although the report does not specify whether the funds were state or federal. By 2015, although Government dollars made up only 18 percent of Bixby’s revenue, it totaled over $18 million in taxpayer dollars. Bixby is conveniently located in California, which permits millions in taxpayer dollars to fund abortions and has no requirement that abortion numbers be reported to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for data analysis.

As more women die from abortion pill, the FDA approves a generic version

As more women die from abortion pill, the FDA approves a generic version
The FDA has approved a generic version of the abortion pill Mifeprex, at a time when more deaths are being reported and the abortion industry is pushing for the dangerous abortion inducing chemicals to be dispensed online or by mail. According to a notice from the FDA, the generic version is approved for use as an abortifacient. This news comes just a day before the FDA updated its adverse effects reports through 2018, stating, “As of December 31, 2018, there were reports of 24 deaths of women associated with Mifeprex since the product was approved in September 2000, including two cases of ectopic pregnancy resulting in death; and several cases of severe systemic infection (also called sepsis), including some that were fatal…” The FDA’s 2017 report put the number of deaths at 22.

This means that in 2018 alone, two more women died from taking the abortion pill. And yet, now a generic version is going to be made available.  To date, the report documents nearly 4,200 reported adverse effects, including hospitalization and other serious complications.

Vandals hit Students for Life display at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville

Vandals hit Students for Life display at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville
An Illinois chapter of Students for Life (pictured) is reporting vandalism of one of its college displays. The group at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville (SIUE) reported that a sign marking a cemetery display was stolen. The group wrote of the incident on its Facebook page:

Yesterday, we had a Cemetery of the Innocent display at SIUE to show how many innocent lives are lost in just one year to abortion (926,000 in 2014, the most recent data from the Guttmacher Institute). Unfortunately, our sign was taken just before we were going to pick up the display.

While it was disappointing to see the animosity some have for the pro-life cause, there were many positive points from the day. We had discussions with students about abortion in a compassionate and understanding manner, and many students saw the the display while our sign was still up. We also collected signatures in support of smart paid family leave proposals in Congress. Thank you to everyone that came out to help with the display; even though it can be hard on days like yesterday, we are lucky to have the chance to stand for those who can’t stand for themselves.

Pro-Life Displays on College Campuses do work as this one at Xavier University in Ohio has

Pro-Life Displays on College Campuses do work as this one at Xavier University in Ohio has
Pro-lifers at Xavier University in Ohio (pictured) recent put up a Students for Life “Planned Parenthood Truth” display, with attention-getting pink banners. “Planned Parenthood Truth” gives students information about the abortion giant that they won’t get in the mainstream media, allowing them to “read real reports from public health departments and mainstream news sources about Planned Parenthood’s facilities and their failure to protect women,” writes Matt Lamb of Students for Life of America. “At the end of the display, students are asked if they trust Planned Parenthood.”

At the end of the display, Xavier students had spoken with 110 individuals on campus about Planned Parenthood, and at least 33 people to whom they spoke reported that they had a change of opinion about the corporation, shifting from once trusting the organization to reconsider. 68 percent of those visiting the display stated that Planned Parenthood shouldn’t get taxpayer funding, and just 19 percent said they would “strongly trust” the abortion giant’s services, or trust it with taxpayer funding. Xavier U’s Lily Hutkowski said that “other groups have even had success getting students to cancel their appointments after seeing the display.”

Royal or not, they are babies, not “fetuses”

Royal or not, they are babies, not “fetuses”

Primarily that the impending “more private” birth of Meghan Markle’s and Prince Harry‘s first child will be far different from the minute-to-minute coverage of the births of Kate Middleton’s and Prince William’s three children.

What will be the same is the royal baby will not have been referred to as a “fetus,” which is more important than you might think.

Here’s how Owen Strachan wrote about the approaching birth of Kate’s and William’s first child back in 2013:

How strange was it, then, that leading [American] news sources referred to the fetus of William and Kate as the “royal baby.” There were no pre-birth headlines from serious journalistic sources like “Royal Clump of Cells Eagerly Anticipated” or “Imperial Seed Soon to Sprout.” None of the web’s traffic-hoarding empires ran “Subhuman Royal Fetus Soon to Become Human!” No, over and over again, one after another, from the top of the media food chain to the bottom, Kate’s “fetus” was called, simply and pre-committedly, a baby. Why was this? Because, as I see it, the royal baby was a baby before birth. The media was right; gloriously, happily right.

He continued

Like all babies-in-womb, in the months before Kate gave birth, the royal heir was spinning around, jabbing mom at inopportune moments, reacting in sheer physical bliss to the soothing sounds of dad’s voice, getting hungry, becoming sad and even agitated when voices were raised in marital conflict, sleeping, sucking its thumb, enjoying certain kinds of music, waking mom up in the night in order to do more spinning around/kicking, and eating hungrily what mom ate.

Agreed, this is a temporary lapse into sanity on the part of publications such as the Washington Post and the New York Times and CNN, etc. But what choice (pardon the pun) do they have?

It’s just too—what?—lame to talk about the upcoming birth of someone who is already internationally famous as if he or she could be reduced to nothing more than a toneless, emotionless Latin term for “baby.”

But that acknowledgment of the unique humanity of each royal unborn child should apply to the children of all of us commoners as well, don’t you think?

I love Strachan’s conclusion:

But in a society that has moved to a stunning degree away from pro-choice identification and toward some form of pro-life conviction, it may also be that the American moral sense, short as its reach is, uncertain as its effects are, will, after much travail and division, shelter the babies that now spin, kick, and play in their mother’s wombs.

Whether royal or unroyal, they are just that, after all: babies

Federal Legislative Update: Pro-lifers proposing protective legislation in both Houses of Congress

Federal Legislative Update: Pro-lifers proposing protective legislation in both Houses of Congress
Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

On April 2nd nearly two hundred energized pro-life members of the U.S. House of Representatives lined up on the House floor to begin signing a discharge petition on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

The discharge petition is a tool that the pro-life Republican minority can use to circumvent pro-abortion leadership which is blocking a vote on this bill. The discharge petition can remain open an entire congress. Once it reaches a simple majority (218) of signatures, the bill can come for a vote. To reach that figure, 21 Democrats must join Republicans.

Led by Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and bill sponsor Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.), an impressive 193 members signed the petition on the first day. Currently, there are 198 signers, including three Democrats–Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), Ben McAdams (D-Utah), and Collin Peterson (D-Minn.). The battle continues to reach the crucial 218 number of signatures.

In addition, a different prolife member has gone to the floor every legislative day since the bill’s introduction asking for unanimous consent to consider H.R. 962. Democrats have blocked these requests 28 times.

An always current list of House of Representatives signers is available here.

There was prior action in the Senate. On February 25, the U.S. Senate voted 53-44 for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. However, the bill failed to receive the 60 votes necessary to “invoke cloture” (end a filibuster) due to efforts by pro-abortion Democrats to block its advancement.

Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act Hearings in the U.S. Senate

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee and the sponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, has scheduled a hearing on S. 160 for today, April 9th.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act continues to be one of the right-to-life movement’s top congressional priorities for the 116th Congress. Like the state bills, the proposed federal law would generally extend legal protection to unborn humans beginning at 20 weeks fetal age, based on congressional findings that by that point (and even earlier) the unborn child has the capacity to experience great pain during an abortion.

Dismemberment Abortion Ban Act

On April 4th, Sens. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) and Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) introduced the Dismemberment Abortion Ban Act. This vital pro-life legislation would prohibit the performance of dismemberment abortion on living unborn children.

The Dismemberment Abortion Ban Act defines “dismemberment abortion” as “knowingly dismembering a living unborn child and extracting such unborn child one piece at a time from the uterus through the use of clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors or similar instruments that, through the convergence of two rigid levers, slice, crush or grasp a portion of the unborn child’s body in order to cut or rip it off . . .”

Abortion Pill Reversal and the Second Chance at Life Act

On April 1st, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), introduced the first-of-its-kind Second Chance at Life Act of 2019 in the U.S. House. This legislation, based on a model developed by National Right to Life, will require that a woman be informed that the effects of the chemical abortion pill can potentially be reversed in order to save her baby if she changes her mind after taking it and does not take the second of the two drugs.

Over 500 babies have been saved by the abortion pill reversal protocol.

High numbers of chemical abortions explain why nearly two-thirds (65.4%) of abortions are now performed at eight-week’ gestation, or earlier.

The chemical (medical) abortion currently involves a two-step drug process. The first abortifacient drug (mifepristone or RU-486) is usually given at the clinic and begins the process of shutting down the unborn child’s life support system (nutrition, oxygen, etc.). The second drug, misoprostol, is taken 24-48 hours later, usually at home, to expel the baby’s remains and complete the abortion.

Research on abortion pill reversal indicates that the first drug, mifepristone, used alone, does not always end the unborn baby’s life. A woman may still have a viable pregnancy after taking the first abortifacient drug, mifepristone.

While action on this legislation is unlikely with pro-abortion Democrats controlling the House, this important legislation can be used to educate and save lives.

Actress Alyssa Milano seeks pro-abortion stories, gets pro-life ones instead

Pro-abortion actress Alyssa Milano took to Twitter on Friday to ask followers to send in their “personal abortion story” so she could share them on her podcast. Her goal, she said, was “to help shine a light on the importance” of abortion. In return, pro-lifers and regretful post-abortive women shared the reasons why they are against abortion.

I had an abortion at the age of 23. I missed out on what a precious gift I choose to give up. I’m thankful for God’s grace and forgiveness and for raising my precious baby in heaven. I get to see my child when I get to heaven. What an amazing day that will

It's personal and the most difficult decision I ever made. I would never talk about my story to encourage abortion, I would discourage it, so obviously you wouldn't want to hear my story.

San Francisco late 1973, my mother told by 3 separate doctors at 3 different facilites to abort because she was 39 (ridiculous), Latina and this would be her 6th. Was it racism? "You don't have to tell your husband." How many babies didn't make it in this situation?

My birth mother had a D&E Abortion that aborted my twin, but missed me. Her abortion traumatized her. She says if she could go back to when she was pregnant with me knowing what abortion does, she would have made a different choice. Abortion hurts women and women deserve better.

Sure. My ex partner aborted our baby without me knowing. One person out of three killed one & led to 5 yrs of anxiety, depression & self loathing for the other two.

Struggling to see the autonomy here. Oh and our baby was killed. Have a nice day Alyssa.

Milano is also sure to tell women who might be interested in sharing their abortion stories that they can remain anonymous. But remaining anonymous would mean that shouting your abortion isn’t something that women want to do. The fact is that abortion is the taking of a life — your own child’s life. Even if women are acting as if they are proud, at some point – at some moment in time, there is the possibility that they will regret their abortion. If and when that happens, it won’t be the abortion advocates like Milano there to help them pick up the pieces. It will be pro-lifers and programs like Rachel’s Vineyard, which help women heal after the trauma of abortion whether that trauma surfaces on day one or day 2,000. Without pro-lifers, post-abortive women suffering from the devasting effects of abortion would have no place to go. Pro-abortion women like Milano and the organizations that push abortion will simply ignore them, writing them off as collateral damage of a “right” that they seek to protect at all costs.

If you are struggling with a past abortion, please reach out to Rachel’s Vineyard or Silent No More Awareness.
