Charles Krauthammer: Young people permissive, but not on abortion

by Kelli Bill O’Reilly: But it’s a more permissive culture, you know… unfettered abortion, OK, for any reason, up until the birth process. There’s a struggle. And the struggle is between, usually, people of faith and the secular progressives. And the secular progressives have the media in their pocket, so they’re powerful. Charles Krauthammer: Look… […]

March for Life expands direction

The-March650uphill-640x285 (1)

With attendance estimated to range between 200,000 to 500,000, the March for Life is the largest annual civil rights event in the world.

NellieatpodiumFor 40 years, founder Nellie Gray, pictured right, dedicated herself to the March for Life. “The last call she made before she died was about the March,” new M4L president Jeanne Monahan told me in an interview. Jeanne was appointed to her position after Nellie passed away in August 2012.

Jeanne and her team are now exploring ways to expand on Nellie’s vision and to capitalize on the innate power M4L holds. With advances online, in texting, and social media, I’ve hoped for the day when M4L would tap into the strength of its vast yearly crowd of mostly young people to promote the sanctity of life year-round in a greater capacity. Jeanne agrees. “We want to make March for Life a year-round thing,” she quipped.

Paul Ryan: Obama has “never once lifted a finger” to protect preborn

“We’re all in this together” – it has a nice ring. For everyone who loves this country, it is not only true but obvious. Yet how hollow it sounds coming from a politician who has never once lifted a hand to defend the most helpless and innocent of all human beings, the child waiting to […]

Young evangelicals: Ignoring right to life as social justice issue?

Again and again I see young social justice-focused evangelicals abandoning any effective voice for the unborn for the sake of an ephemeral, culturally-fashionable concept that as a practical matter means little more than advocating a utopian ideal through a grab-bag of banal, functionally socialist policies. Moreover, the embrace of social justice often drives them functionally […]

Barry Lynn: Jesus cares more about helping the poor than about abortion

Let’s get this straight. Even though abortion is not mentioned in the Bible, it is obvious to these conservatives that not only should Christians not get one; the government should bar anyone from obtaining one. However, when the deep concern for the poor is commonly located in the same sacred text, it means absolutely nothing […]

Explosive new evidence of torture, murder, and pillage to be revealed today at House hearing on China’s brutal one-child policy

In the wake of Vice President Joe Biden’s statement last month expressing support for China’s barbaric one-child policy, the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, and Human Rights will hold a hearing today about the gross human rights violations being committed by the Communist Chinese government in an attempt to forcibly control its population. The […]

Pro-abortion China: Living in the “dark ages” of women’s rights

Make no mistake. China’s One Child Policy is enforced through forced abortion, forced sterilization and infanticide. Women are dragged out of their homes, strapped to tables, and forced to abort babies they want, up to the 9th month of pregnancy. Women sometimes die during these violent procedures. The One Child Policy is China’s war on […]

1662 pro-slavery law sounds remarkably pro-abortion

This law says that an organization, another entity, or another individual can determine your worth before you’re even born…. Where does that exist today in our society? Who said it? Abortion. Derived from the same mindset as the law that sanctioned and recognized the institution of slavery, the ultimate form of tyranny. ~ Tea Party […]

Lila Rose’s segment on CNN documentary

See previous posts on this here and here. So what do you think? Did CNN fairly portray Lila? her work investigating Planned Parenthood?  the pro-life issue?  pro-life activism? [HT: LiveAction.org blog]

Pakistani woman slated for “honor killing” given stay of deportation

reported last week that illegal alien Roohi Tabassum, who fled to Canada in 2001, was scheduled to be deported to Pakistan today to almost certain death at the hand of her husband. I received word last night from several sources that Tabassum was given a stay of deportation yesterday. This buys her time but is […]

Are you reachable?

By HisMan (as one totally sold out to Jesus Christ) My words don’t mean much so I’m just going to quote a few of God’s words and let the Spirit touch your heart tonight. Will you let Him? My favorite is Psalm 139….

Pro-Choice: Just Say “No” to Safe and Rare

By Valerie Jane Pro-Choice advocates want abortion to be safe, legal and rare. *At any time during a pregnancy it is legal for a woman to destroy a human fetus, so they have legal covered. *What about safe? Metropolitan Medical Associates in New Jersey was temporarily closed by state health officials because of a complaint […]

“Social justice” movement dangerous to Pro-life movement

Just read this disturbing commentary in Human Events, published January 8. Its thesis is this: A significant factor in this election will be the left’s effort to finally achieve a goal it has pursued for decades: convincing a majority of Americans that liberal “social justice” and traditional Christianity are one and the same. Liberals have […]

Father Pavone poses with young family following news conference in Washington on RU-486 reversal protocol

The “reversals” also show that the ingestion of medication abortion drugs is never a sure thing when it comes to terminating a pregnancy. While anti-abortion activists tout the alleged “high complication rates” of the process, what they conveniently leave out is that the most common complication is that the patient remains pregnant, and that the protocol needs to be followed up with D&C or vacuum aspiration abortion in order to end the pregnancy….

Why is the “reversal” apparently so successful then? Primarily it is because those who are trying to continue the pregnancy are already in the midst of a failed medication abortion to start with….

“There’s no evidence of any demonstrable effect of the ‘treatment’ these anti-abortion centers are marketing,” Dr. Cheryl Chastine, a provider at South Wind Women’s Center in Wichita, Kansas, said. “The medical literature is quite clear that mifepristone on its own is only about 50 percent effective at ending a pregnancy. That means that even if these doctors were to offer a large dose of purple Skittles, they’d appear to have ‘worked’ to ‘save’ the pregnancy about half the time. Those numbers are consistent with what these people are reporting.”

Dr. Chastine isn’t alone in her assessment. Dr. Dan Grossman, vice president for research at Ibis Reproductive Health [and pro-abortion author at RH Reality Check], told Iowa Public Radio that the “treatment” was unlikely to be doing anything at all.

“[The abortion pill] binds much more tightly to the progesterone receptor, to block it than progesterone itself does…. So there really is not much evidence to indicate, I’m really not aware of anything, that by increasing the amount of progesterone you’re gonna somehow block the effect of this drug….

I think this is really outside of standard of care to just begin doing this kind of treatment, without collecting more rigorous studies about its effectiveness.”

~ Robin Marty, questioning whether attempting to save babies like Gabriel Caicedo (pictured above with his parents and Fr. Frank Pavone) is worth it, Talking Points Memo, March 2

Note: The function of mifepristone is to block progesterone receptors (which is why, in an abortion pill reversal, an extra injection of progesterone is given to counteract these effects). Mifepristone “directly causes endometrial decidual degeneration, cervical softening and dilatation, release of endogenous prostaglandins, and an increase in the sensitivity of the myometrium to the contractile effects of prostaglandins. Mifepristone-induced decidual breakdown indirectly leads to trophoblast detachment, resulting in decreased syncytiotrophoblast production of hCG, which in turn causes decreased production of progesterone by the corpus luteum (pregnancy is dependent on progesterone production by the corpus luteum through the first 9 weeks of gestation—until placental progesterone production has increased enough to take the place of corpus luteum progesterone production).”
