Meriam Ibrahim Finally Leaves Sudan After Being Sentenced to Death for Her Faith
The Sudanese woman who was pregnant and sentenced to death for not recanting her faith has finally been allowed to leave Sudan after she spent weeks in a U.S. embassy after her release from prison.

At eight months pregnant, Ibrahim had been sentenced to death for not renouncing her Christian faith and she was imprisoned and eventually forced to give birth in chains while shackled in the Omdurman Federal Women’s Prison in North Khartoum, Sudan. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/24/meriam-ibrahaim-finally-leaves-sudan-after-being-sentenced-to-death-for-her-faith/

Woman Has Two Abortions Because She Didn’t Want to Share Her Husband With Her Children
Rowena met Roger when she was a teen and knew he was the man for her and they ultimately married when they were 21 years old. Both agreed they never wanted to have children, so when Rowena became pregnant twice, she had abortions both times.

Rowena says she had the abortions in part because she didn’t want to share her husband’s affections with her children. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/24/woman-has-two-abortions-because-she-didnt-want-to-share-her-husband-with-her-children/

Meriam Ibrahim Visits Pope Francis After Finally Leaving Sudan
After finally being able to leave Sudan, the woman who was sentenced to die for her Christian faith when she was pregnant visited Pope Francis today.

“Pope Francis was very tender with her, her husband, who was in prison, and thanked her for her courageous witness to perseverance in the Faith,” Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi said of the meeting in a statement. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/24/meriam-ibrahim-visits-pope-francis-after-finally-leaving-sudan/

Obama Motorcade Prevents Pregnant Woman in Labor From Getting to the Hospital
News reports today and irate witnesses at the scene report that a pregnant woman in labor was not allowed to cross the street to go to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for 30 minutes because Obama’s motorcade was expected to drive through the area.

The woman sat on a bus bench until Obama’s motorcade drove through. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/24/obama-motorcade-prevents-pregnant-woman-in-labor-from-getting-to-the-hospital/

Mother Reveals “Monumental” Secret Before Reuniting With Baby She Gave Up 77 Years Ago
The story of Minka Disbrow sounds almost too horrific in some ways, but also too amazing, to be true.

In 1928, before she even knew where babies came from, at the age of 16, Minka was raped by a stranger and became pregnant. Fortunately, although she initially tried to hide the situation, she was able to turn to her mother to have her explain what was happening. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/24/mother-reveals-monumental-secret-before-reuniting-with-baby-she-gave-up-77-years-ago/

Feminist Studies Professor Who Assaulted Pro-Lifer Pleads No Contest to Criminal Charges
The pro-abortion feminist studies professor at University of California Santa Barbara who attacked a young pro-life activist, stole and destroyed her sign, and encouraged a group of students to violence, inciting an angry mob, has plead no contest to criminal charges.

The incident, which took place on March 4, saw two pro-life students Thrin and Joan Short, lead the peaceful pro-life outreach event with 11 friends, most of whom were students from Thomas Aquinas College. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/24/feminist-studies-professor-who-assaulted-pro-lifer-pleads-no-contest-to-criminal-charges/



Abortionist Who Failed to Report Rape of 13-Year-Old Stopped From Doing Abortions
Ulrich Klopfer who faces charges that he delayed reporting an abortion on a 13-year-old girl in South Bend, Indiana, in January 2013, has been stopped from doing abortions.

Indiana law requires reports on abortions provided to girls younger than 14 to be submitted within three days. Klopfer submitted the report six months after the abortion, according to state records. Klopfer potentially faces a fine of $1,000 and 180 days in jail if convicted of the Class B misdemeanor. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/24/abortionist-who-failed-to-report-rape-of-13-year-old-stopped-from-doing-abortions/

vatican city

In his message to British Catholics for the
annual Day for Life, which this year falls on 27 July, he called on
faithful to “combat the culture of death, not only by working to ensure
adequate legal protection for the fundamental human right to life, but
also by seeking to bring the merciful love of Christ as a life-giving
balm to those troubling “new forms of poverty and vulnerability.”
