Autopsy Confirms 33-Week Abortion Led to Young Woman’s Death
The Maryland Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has released the autopsy report on the death of Jennifer Morbelli, which again confirms the young woman died on February 7, 2013, from complications to a 33-week abortion done by late-term abortion practitioner LeRoy Carhart.

Jennifer McKenna Morbelli, a 29-year-old woman from New Rochelle, New York died from a botched 33-week abortion. The medical examiner’s office confirmed a botched 33-week abortion killed the young woman. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/autopsy-confirms-33-week-abortion-led-to-young-womans-death/

Mother of Baby Rescued in Sewage Pipe Regains Custody, Father Identified
The mother of the baby who has received international attention after he was flushed down the toilet and found in a sewage pipe has regained custody of the child.

The unnamed mother claims the incident was an accident. She also claims she wanted an abortion but was unable to afford one. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/mother-of-baby-rescued-in-sewage-pipe-regains-custody-father-identified/

Douglas Karpen Snipped Babies’ Necks Worse Than Gosnell, Is Anyone Noticing?
If Americans found the Gosnell trial disturbing, there can be no words to describe Douglas Karpen’s abortion clinic in Houston, Texas. Operation Rescue has been on the scene for years, working to stop Karpen. Thanks to Operation Rescue’s Abortion Whistleblowers Program, four women who previously worked for Karpen at the Aaron Women’s Clinic have come forward to describe their horrific experiences.

Like many abortionists, Karpen has had a string of problems at his clinics. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/douglas-karpen-snipped-babies-necks-worse-than-gosnell-is-anyone-noticing/

Obama’s Motorcade Confronted With Pictures of Abortion Victims
President Barack Obama and Rep. Nancy Pelosi came to Chicago yesterday for a Democratic Party fundraising event, and the Pro-Life Action League was there to confront the presidential motorcade with pictures of aborted babies—victims of the “choice” that Obama and Pelosi, et al. so stridently support.

Protest of Obama and PelosiWhen we arrived at the Hilton & Towers shortly before 4:00 to set up for our protest, we found that Chicago Police had set up metal fencing all along Michigan Avenue directly in front of the hotel, effectively eliminating our intended protest area. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/obamas-motorcade-confronted-with-pictures-of-abortion-victims/

FBI Targets Pregnancy Center That Saved 42,000 Babies From Abortions
Based in New York City, the Expectant Mother Care-EMC FrontLine Pregnancy Centers has helped more than 42,000 women find abortion alternatives. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/fbi-targets-pregnancy-center-that-saved-42000-babies-from-abortions/



Melinda Gates, Planned Parenthood and Hillary Clinton Push Illegal Abortions
It’s being billed as “the largest global event of the decade to focus on the health and empowerment of girls and women.” But it is also very obviously a conference designed to reduce populations of developing nations by promoting a Western-style sexual revolution via chemical contraceptives, access to abortion-on-demand including, the promotion of the chemical abortifacient misoprostol in countries where abortion is illegal, and sex education for youth.

On Tuesday more than 4,000 delegates from 145 countries attended the launch of the third Women Deliver conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/melinda-gates-planned-parenthood-and-hillary-clinton-push-illegal-abortions/

IRS Agent Who Wrote Threatening Letters Gets Promotion, Now a Supervisor
Operation Rescue has learned more about the death of an abortion patient at a shoddy Baltimore abortion clinic located in a residential condo complex. The operating license of that facility, Associates in OB/GYN Care, is currently suspended after state inspectors determined that it posed a danger to the public.

Computer aided dispatch transcripts show that a 911 call was placed from 3596 N. Calvert, Suite 110, in Baltimore on February 13, 2013, at 12:49 pm for a patient who was unconscious and not breathing. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/irs-agent-who-wrote-threatening-letters-gets-promotion-now-a-supervisor/

Premature Newborn Comes Back to Life in Mother’s Arms After Pronounced Dead
A premature newborn in Australia, born along with his twin sister at just 27 weeks’ gestation and weighing in at only two pounds, was pronounced dead by his physician after medical staff tried for twenty minutes to revive him. Jamie Ogg, now a little over three years old, is alive today only because of the undying love and affection of his mother.

According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, when Jamie was pronounced dead, the doctor handed him to his mother, Kate, so that she could say goodbye to her son. Kate took Jamie into her arms and tearfully caressed her tiny son. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/premature-newborn-comes-back-to-life-in-mothers-arms-after-pronounced-dead/

Planned Parenthood Has Never Rebuked Lobbyist Who Defended Infanticide
In a now-infamous Planned Parenthood video, the organization betrayed its love for abortion-above-all-else when a representative, testifying against language in Florida HB 1129, proudly admitted to the Florida legislature that Planned Parenthood takes issue with allowing infants born alive after failed abortions to be transported to a hospital. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/planned-parenthood-has-never-reversed-lobbyist-who-defended-infanticide/


Independent Payment Advisory Board’s Death Panels Should Not be Implemented
Recently the debate about “death panels” has been heating up as Republican Congressional leaders express their opposition to implementing the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) by refusing to appoint members to serve on it. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/independent-payment-advisory-boards-death-panels-should-not-be-implemented/

Gosnell Will Plead Guilty to Writing Thousands of Illegal Drug Prescriptions
There were broad hints from Kermit Gosnell’s attorney on the day the abortionist was convicted of three counts of first degree murder that his client would plead guilty to charges that he operated what the grand jury described as a “pill mill.”. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/gosnell-will-plead-guilty-to-writing-thousands-of-illegal-drug-prescriptions/

Remembering When an Abortionist Carved His Initials Into Patient’s Abdomen
Although not widely known, there is a long and sordid history of bizarre behavior by abortionists. In other words, Kermit Gosnell is by no means an “outlier,” as pro-abortion groups insist he is. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/remembering-when-an-abortionist-carved-his-initials-into-patients-abdomen/

IPAB Death Panels Stuck as GOP Leaders Refuse to Name Members
I have advocated here and elsewhere for the forced stillbirth of the Independent Payment Advisory Board, due to go into action later this year. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/ipab-death-panels-stuck-as-gop-leaders-refuse-to-name-members/

Abortions May Take Away Some Women’s Only Chance to Have Children
One common tale that women are told, over and over, is that we can have it all. We can go to college, have a fabulous career, and then, whenever we’re ready, get married and have a family. Why rush things? We have our whole lives ahead of us. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/30/abortions-may-take-away-some-womens-only-chance-to-have-children/

ACLU Supports Sex-Selection, Race-Based Abortions

Louisiana House Passes Bill to Ban Dangerous Webcam Abortions
The Louisiana state house has approved a bill that would prohibit the controversial use of webcam abortions.
