Late-Term Abortionists Charged with Murder in Maryland
Lucy Feil
Unborn children and women on the east coast are a little safer today. Two abortionists were recently charged with murder for the killing of viable babies at their illegal abortion practice in Elkton, Maryland after being arrested. Stephen Chase Brigham had no license to practice in Maryland, but ran a secret late-term abortion clinic in that state anyway, with the help of Nicola Irene Riley, who carried out the late-term abortions for him. According to LifeNews, Brigham would start the late-...Read More

Abby Johnson on Planned Parenthood's Use of IUDs
Laura Mitchell
This week on her blog, Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood employee turned pro-life advocate, speaks on another injustice going on in abortion clinics: the protocol concerning IUDs.An IUD, or intrauterine device, is a form of birth control inserted into the cervix that works primarily by preventing fertilized eggs from implanting on the uterine lining. Planned Parenthood describes it as a “small, ‘T-shaped’ device used to prevent pregnancy” that is “safe, effective, and long-lasting.”...Read More

She was recently featured in the documentary The Gift of Life, which addresses the exception that many people make: that abortion is acceptable in cases of rape. She met Perry at the showing of the film—and apparently left a lasting impression. LifeNews reports that she...Read More

Utah Supreme Court Declares Unborn Child "Minor Child"
Laura Mitchell
The pro-life movement has taken a leap forward in Utah: the Utah Supreme Court declared that an unborn child is legally a “minor child” in instances of wrongful death.The decision arose from a 2007 court case concerning parents Amelia Sanchez and Miguel Carranza, who lost their unborn child due to their doctor’s poor decision. The day before she was due to give birth, Sanchez told her doctor she was experiencing contractions and wanted to induce labor. Her doctor denied her request, however,...Read More

Pro-Abortion "Support" for Tim Tebow
Lucy Feil
The pro-abortion crowd never misses a chance to push their agenda. Now, they’re even using a pro-life athlete’s fame to raise money for pro-abortion groups. LifeSiteNews reports that a blogger for the Abortion Gang blog is calling for readers to donate five or ten dollars to a pro-abortion group every time Tim Tebow throws a touchdown. Tebow has faced many attacks for his defense of the unborn, but this one is particularly outrageous because it attempts to taint his successes by using them to...Read More

Obama Administration Interferes in Another Pro-Life State
Once again, the Obama administration is interfering with a state’s effort to defund Planned Parenthood.

The WHP provides family planning services to low-income women who are below the poverty line, but do not qualify for Medicaid. The WHP is federally funded and operates under a waiver...Read More

Planned Parenthood Shows Inconsistency with PRENDA Opposition
Chris Crawford
Planned Parenthood and NARAL have expressed staunch opposition to Rep. Trent Frank’s (R-ZA) Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), a bill that would ban sex-selection and race-based abortions. It is ironic that organizations that pride themselves on “standing up for women” would oppose a bill that specifically protects baby girls in the womb. Once again, Planned Parenthood and NARAL have shown that abortions – not women - are their top priority. As sex-selection abortions have become...Read More
