Down Syndrome Abortion Ban Introduced in U.S. Senate

Unborn children who are diagnosed with Down syndrome can often be targets for abortion. A bill recently introduced in the U.S. Senate seeks to change that, making it illegal to abort a baby solely because of such a diagnosis. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) has introduced the Down Syndrome Discrimination by Abortion Prohibition Act, which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. The text reads: It shall be unlawful to—perform an abortion—with the knowledge that a pregnant woman is seeking an abortion, in whole or in part, on the basis of— a test result indicating that the unborn child has

Ohio State Senate Passes Two More Pro-Life Bills

Even while judicial setbacks in Ohio have discouraged pro-lifers in the state and across the country, the Ohio State Senate has been busy working on even more pro-life legislation. One such bill was passed in October, and the chamber passed an additional pro-life bill on Wednesday. Senate Bill 155, the most recent of the two, requires doctors to inform mothers that it is within the realm of possibility to reverse a chemical abortion if they change their mind and no longer want to abort their child. The bill was passed 22-10. While most voted along party lines, one Republican voted

Pa. Democrat Callously Compares Miscarried Baby to “Mess on a Napkin”

Pennsylvania State Rep. Wendy Ullman (D-Bucks) revealed the dehumanizing sentiment that drives the pro-abortion movement in a comment made last week regarding miscarriages. Speaking on a bill before the Pennsylvania House Health Committee that would give parents of aborted or miscarried babies the decision to cremate or bury their child, Ullman remarked: It refers specifically to the product of conception after fertilization which covers an awful lot of territory. I think we all understand the concept of the loss of a fetus, but we’re also talking about a woman who comes into a facility and is having cramps and —

University of Oklahoma to Host “Abortion Access Is Love” Event

Many of us are familiar with 1 Corinthians 13, a passage of Scripture that talks about love: “Love is patient, love is kind…” Now, a department at the University of Oklahoma would add another item to the list: “Love is ensuring abortion access.” The University of Oklahoma’s Department of Women’s and Gender Studies is co-sponsoring an event titled, “Fighting for Abortion Access is Love.” Other co-sponsors are the department’s Center for Social Justice and a nonprofit group, Oklahoma Call for Reproductive Justice. A description of the event states: We fight because we know that without the ability to control our

Abortionist Caught in Undercover Video Downplays “Lamborghini” Comments

As David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress undergo a civil trial in California for their work investigating Planned Parenthood, the abortionist featured in their most famous video was called upon to testify under oath. The resulting testimony was self-incriminating. Dr. Mary Gatter took to the witness stand as part of Planned Parenthood v. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP). She testified that she was an abortionist and Medical Director at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles for over 15 years, and also served as the Medical Director for Planned Parenthood Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley. Gatter

Judge Bars Ohio from Enforcing Down Syndrome Abortion Ban

A federal appeals court ruled on Friday that Ohio will not be allowed to enforce a 2017 law that bans abortion of unborn children that test positive for Down syndrome. Signed into law in December 2017 by Republican Governor John Kasich, House Bill 214 (the Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act) would have revised the Ohio code “to prohibit a person from performing, inducing, or attempting to perform or induce an abortion on a pregnant woman who is seeking the abortion because an unborn child has or may have Down Syndrome.” Immediately after the passage of the bill, the American Civil Liberties

Supreme Court Takes Up Case on Louisiana Abortion Law

As the Supreme Court begins a new term, they will take up a case regarding a very important issue: abortion. The decision will be whether to uphold or overturn a new Louisiana law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. Opponents see this as an attempt to shut down abortion clinics, while supporters argue that it may be necessary to save the lives of women who are harmed during an abortion. In the 2016 Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt case, the Supreme Court struck down a similar Texas law for causing an “undue burden” to women

Elizabeth Warren Buys from Lemonade Stand, Money Donated to Pro-Life Cause

When Elizabeth Warren stopped her tour bus to buy lemonade from a stand run by two 11-year-old girls, she had no idea that the girls’ parents would turn it into a teaching moment. Neither did she know that the money she spent would be donated to a pro-life charity. Earlier this summer, Warren stopped her bus to buy $10 worth of lemonade at a stand in rural Iowa. She tweeted about the stop, saying, “Stopped for a quick drink at a lemonade stand in Harlan, Iowa. When life gives you lemons, make big structural change!” The stand was being run
