Democrats Begin Celebration of Abortion at Obama Convention
Democrats are beginning what many pro-life advocates and political observers are calling a Celebration of Abortion this week as they convene to nominate pro-abortion President Barack Obama to attempt to secure another four-year term.
Organizers of the Democratic convention in Charlotte, North Carolina has released lists of the speakers for the event and no pro-life advocates are included. The list is long on speakers who have spent their entire political careers advocating for abortion. Missing among the roster of notables speaking at the convention? Anyone who shares the pro-life view a majority of Americans hold on abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/democrats-begin-celebration-of-abortion-at-obama-convention/
Pro-Abortion Democrats Scream at 11-Year-Old Pro-Life Girl at Convention
I want you to meet my friend and fellow abortion abolitionist, 11-year-old Zoe Griffin. In a world when grown adults ignore, deny or just don t care about the abortion holocaust that has claimed over 55 Million of Zoe s generation, she is willing to take a stand no matter what people think. Zoe joined her mother and friends to lay thousands of roses outside the site of the democratic convention and pray for the babies, the politicians and this generation.
While Zoe was praying, pro-abortion activists who claim to stand up for women began to belittle and scream at Zoe for her stand for life. What is so sad is that one of the women who did this to Zoe, Sunsara Taylor, is a well know anti-porn activist who claims to be against the degradation of women. I guess just not 11-year-olds who believe that women should not be dehumanized by the abortion industry. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/pro-abortion-democrats-scream-at-11-year-old-pro-life-girl-at-convention/
2016 Movie Helps Explore Basis of Obama s Pro-Abortion Views
My husband and I saw the film 2016: Obama s America last night. 2016 is based on Dinesh D Souza s 2010 best-selling book, The Roots of Obama s Rage. The movie was advertised on this site for several weeks.
Both the book and movie attempt to make sense of Obama s otherwise inexplicable decisions as president by tying them to his anti-colonialist roots and subsequent belief system. Both of Obama s parents were anti-colonialists, as was his adolescent mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, and several of his professors and adult peers, particularly Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/2016-movie-helps-explore-basis-of-obamas-pro-abortion-views/
American Pie Actor Tries to Hide Attacks on Romney, Ryan Wives
American Pie actor Jason Biggs has deleted the controversial tweets attacking the wives of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan by making sexual comments about them and their bodies. However, Biggs has yet to issue any apology for the comments.
On Wednesday, Biggs sent out two very crude sexually-suggestive tweets attacking pro-life vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan and his wife Janna. While Republicans are accused of a so-called War on Women because of their pro-life positions, liberal actors like Biggs actually engage in one. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/american-pie-actor-tries-to-hide-attacks-on-romney-ryan-wives/
Report Claims Romney Rejected Condi Rice for VP Over Abortion
A report that came out late last week suggests Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney rejected the idea of Condoleezza Rice as his vice-presidential running mate because of her pro-abortion position.
Rice technically supports legalized abortion, though she also supports many pro-life limits on it and has tried to present her abortion view as a middle of the road position. According to the web site Radar Online, which quotes a source close to Rice, saying Romney ultimately rejected her because she wouldn t renounce her position. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/report-claims-romney-rejected-condi-rice-for-vp-over-abortion/
GOP Platform Condemns China One-Child Policy Biden Ignored
Last week, Republicans adopted a new party platform that condemns abortion, but it also takes China to task for its one-child policy.
The coercive policy not only limits the number of children couples can have but has been accompanied by human rights abuses ranging from forced abortions to sterilizations to home detention as personified by the plight of Chen Guangcheng. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/gop-platform-condemns-china-one-child-policy-biden-ignored/
Newt Gingrich: Democrats Are The Extreme Party on Abortion
Former Republican presidential candidate and House Speaker New Gingrich says it is Democrats who extreme on abortion, citing their party platform that calls for keeping abortion legal for any reason and paid for at taxpayer expense.
First, Gingrich appeared on an NBC program with host David Gregory:
DAVID GREGORY: Understanding, Mr. Speaker, the difference between Todd Akin talking about rape versus the abortion plank of the platform, I understand there is that distinction. Nevertheless, the question, social issues versus economic issues as being a big motivator for women, is a question. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/newt-gingrich-democrats-are-the-extreme-party-on-abortion/
Democrats Start Convention in North Carolina, Where Romney Leads
The following is the pro-life prayer Timothy Cardinal Dolan prayed at the Republican convention last night, following the speech presidential nominee Mitt Romney gave. The prayer hit pro-life themes that are dear to the heart of the head of the Catholic bishops conference. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/democrats-start-convention-in-north-carolina-where-romney-leads/
As a pro-life activist, sometimes I get discouraged. With every day that passes, 3,300 innocent lives are snuffed out in abortion clinics across our country, and I am acutely aware that I am living in the midst of our own American holocaust. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/pro-lifers-are-the-underdogs-but-we-will-win-the-abortion-fight/
Abortion Is Not a Settled Issue, Election Decides Its Future
On January 22, 1973, the U. S. Supreme Court struck down all state laws prohibiting abortion. Abortion advocates celebrated that decision, claiming that abortion was a settled issue. But pro-life people were outraged and committed themselves to restoring legal protection to the unborn. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/abortion-is-not-a-settled-issue-election-decides-its-future/
Chaput: We Must Begin Now Building a Culture of Religious Freedom
If we want a culture of religious freedom, we need to begin it here, today, now. We live it by giving ourselves wholeheartedly to God with passion and joy, confidence and courage; and by holding nothing back. God will take care of the rest. Adapted from remarks delivered at the Napa Institute s 2012 annual conference. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/chaput-we-must-begin-now-building-a-culture-of-religious-freedom/
Are Pro-Lifers Misogynist Pigs Who Hate Women?
I get that a lot. Apparently because I think innocent human life, particularly the most vulnerable and the least among us , should be protected from being killed, this means I hate, dis-like or mistrust women (that s the misogyny part). http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/are-pro-lifers-misogynist-pigs-who-hate-women/
Pregnancy From Sperm Frozen 40 Years Ago Highlights Problems With IVF
Good grief: A sperm bank is bragging that it set the record of having children born with 40 year-old sperm. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/03/pregnancy-from-sperm-frozen-40-years-ago-highlights-problems-with-ivf/
