Dr. Grant Clark: A journey from death to life
By Anna Abbott
Celebrate Life

The life of Dr. Grant Clark, of Depoe Bay, Oregon, calls to mind Saint Augustine’s words: “Our hearts are restless till they rest in Thee.” Decades ago, just a few years after finishing medical school, he began committing abortions. He only recently broke his silence about that dark chapter in his long medical career, because, he explained, “What the Lord has put me through … was gradual. … It takes courage to admit you were a murderer.”

Teaming with Planned Parenthood like ‘joining the mob’

One News Now

A spokesman for American Life League believes the announced departure this week of the two top executives of the Susan G. Komen Foundation, following a year of controversy, spells out Komen’s direction for the future. Paul Rondeau tells OneNewsNow that Planned Parenthood, in reaction to Thompson’s and Brinker’s departure, is now talking about their “profound contributions to women’s healthcare.”  

Obamacare mandate: Sterilize 15-year-old girls for free – without parental consent

CNS News

Thanks to an Obamacare regulation that took effect on Aug. 1, health care plans – except those provided by actual houses of worship organized under the section of the Internal Revenue Code reserved for churches per se – must provide coverage, without cost-sharing, for sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives to “all women with reproductive capacity.” In practical terms, “all women with reproductive capacity” means girls as young as about 12. That, according to the National Institutes of Health, is when girls usually start menstruating.

Amnesty International uses maternal deaths to push for unrestricted abortion


NEW YORK, August 10 (C-FAM) Amnesty International, a human rights organization that used to be abortion neutral, is now using the problem of maternal mortality to advocate for abortion. In a new report, ostensibly on medical care for maternal health, Amnesty calls on governments to repeal abortion laws and conscience protection for medical workers who may object. They also call for public health systems to train and equip health care providers to perform abortions. Amnesty’s “Maternal Health is a Human Right” campaign focuses attention on four countries: Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Peru, and the United States. Amnesty argues that maternal mortality will decrease if it is treated as a human rights issue, if costs to health care are covered by governments, and if a right for women to control their reproductive and sex lives is established.
