Planned Parenthood Never Called 911 for Abortion Victim
Documents a pro-life group has obtained show the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which waited five hours before sending a woman who died from a botched legal abortion to the hospital, never called 911.

Initially, Steve Miller of the CBS news affiliate WBBM released a report showing documents released in the botched abortion death of Tonya Reaves that alarmingly showed Planned Parenthood delayed summoning emergency care for the dying woman for five and a half hours after the abortion failed.

Obama Admin Funding Allows Abortion-Referral Clinic to Expand
Following a recent announcement that the Obama administration would replace the state taxpayer funding North Carolina cut for a Planned Parenthood abortion referral business, a Durham clinic says it will be able to expand.

As LifeNews reported, for the third time in July and the fifth time overall, the Obama administration has override the decision of a state to revoke taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The Obama administration usurped the will of the North Carolina legislature by awarding $426,000 in federal grants directly to Planned Parenthood affiliates in the state. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/03/obama-admin-funding-allows-abortion-referral-clinic-to-expand/

Forced Abortion Victims File Complaint Against One-Child Policy
In the last several years, women who regret their abortions have been active at the UN telling delegates and bureaucrats how abortion hurt them. Now they are spearheading a coalition that submitted a formal complaint to the UN Commission on the Status of Women against China over its One Child Policy.

They hope this complaint will be the catalyst that will convict the Chinese government to abort their population control campaign by dropping the one child policy. Billions of Chinese women are suffering post traumatic stress disorder, millions are depressed and suicidal. Every 4 minutes a woman in China is killing herself. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/03/forced-abortion-victims-file-complaint-against-one-child-policy/

Irony: Celebrating a Pro-Abortion President s Birthday
On Saturday, the President of the United States, who has spent the past four years dividing Americans rather than uniting, celebrates his 51st birthday. He will be lavished with all kinds of praise by the sycophants known as mainstream media.

Undoubtedly, groups like the NAACP, the ACLU, GLAAD, OWS and the failed Democrat party will laud him with undeserved accolades, but it s fitting in their surreal universe. Anyone who can be given a Nobel Peace Prize without any record of actually brokering peace can certainly be praised for a myriad of mythological achievements from devoted surrogates. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/03/irony-celebrating-a-pro-abortion-presidents-birthday/

Even Liberals Agree Obama HHS Mandate Has No Conscience Exemption
Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne, Jr. wrote, the [Catholic] Church s leaders had a right to ask for broader relief from a contraception mandate that would require it to act against its own teachings. He said that the administration had utterly botched the way it handled the mandate.

Former DNC Chairman Tim Kaine said that the administration made a bad decision in not allowing a broad enough religious employer exemption. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/03/even-liberals-agree-obama-hhs-mandate-has-no-conscience-exemption/

Defending Abortion After 20 Weeks is Anti-Woman, Anti-Child
To protect mothers as well as their preborn children, Arizona lawmakers passed H.B. 1036 a bill banning elective abortions after 20 weeks. Although the legislation was aptly titled The Mother s Health and Safety Act, the ACLU and the Center for Reproductive Rights sued to block its implementation. But a federal judge just ruled for mothers, and as a result, the law will take effect in Arizona. (Editor s note: A liberal appeals court has since issued an injunction). http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/03/defending-abortion-after-20-weeks-is-anti-woman-anti-child/
