Vote Next Week on Congressional Bill Banning Abortions at 20 Weeks
Members of a U.S. House committee will cast a vote on a congressional bill that would ban abortions nationwide at 20 weeks of pregnancy.

The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, chaired by bill author Rep. Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican, will hold a markup on H.R. 1797 on Tuesday. After lawmakers debate the bill, a vote is expected. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/vote-next-week-on-congressional-bill-banning-abortons-at-20-weeks/

Planned Parenthood Abortionist Who Reused Blood-Stained Gloves Faces Complaint
Planned Parenthood abortion practitioner Timothy Liveright faces an official complaint from the Delaware Attorney General’s Office for injuring and mistreating women to who came to Planned Parenthood for abortions.

The attorney general’s complaint cites him for unprofessional, incompetent and negligent conduct at Planned Parenthood’s Wilmington, Delaware abortion clinic and calls him a “clear and immediate danger to the public.” http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/planned-parenthood-abortionist-who-reused-blood-stained-gloves-faces-complaint/

Girl Scouts Join Planned Parenthood at Huge Pro-Abortion Conference
Tell me who you hang out with and I’ll tell you who you are.

Anna Maria Chávez, CEO of Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA), offers this pithy saying as her favorite quote. In order to figure out who the Girl Scouts are, I suppose we must follow Ms. Chávez’ logic and look at the organizations that GSUSA associates with. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/girl-scouts-join-planned-parenthood-at-huge-pro-abortion-conference/

We Must Stop Kermit Gosnell’s Colleagues Douglas Karpen and LeRoy Carhart
Abortionists like Kermit Gosnell and Douglas Karpen are more common than you think.

They aren’t exceptions, they’re the rule. Unsafe conditions and barbaric practices in abortion clinics are an epidemic, not a random occurrence. The blood splattered walls and freezers full of children do not just exist in a few clinics in Pennsylvania and Texas. They’re in clinics across the nation from Illinois to Virginia. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/we-must-stop-kermit-gosnells-colleagues-douglas-karpen-and-leroy-carhart/



Pope Francis: Baptize Babies of Unwed Moms, They Had Courage to Reject Abortion
Pope Francis has an encouraging message for single mothers who rejected an abortion: your baby is welcome for baptism.

The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano indicates that, during a private mass at his residence, Pope Francis relayed the message: http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/pope-francis-baptize-babies-of-unwed-moms-they-had-courage-to-reject-abortion/

Georgetown’s Catholic Standing Challenged After Pro-Abortion Speaker
Should Georgetown University be able to call itself a Catholic university in good standing? A new canon law petition says no, since the college has repeatedly had pro-abortion speakers — including HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

“Do alumni, students, faculty and parents have a right to be heard, when a Catholic university repeatedly violates its Catholic identity?” asks Patrick Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Society, a Catholic educational watchdog group. “That’s the question at stake at Georgetown University.” http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/georgetowns-catholic-standing-challenged-after-pro-abortion-speaker/

Blind Chinese Woman Sells Four Newborn Children, Husband Can’t Hold Job
On the heels of international news about a newborn baby who was found in a sewage pipe after being born alive and flushed down the toilet comes another tragic story from China.

A blind Chinese woman has admitted she sold four of her children because her husband is unable to keep a job to provide for their family. The London Daily Mail newspaper reports that Du Xiurong, from Shibei Village in Mianyang sold the four children between 2005 and 2012. The sold kids include three girls and one boy. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/blind-chinese-woman-sells-four-of-her-children-husband-cant-hold-job/

Obama to Spend Second Term Packing Courts With Liberal Activists
If you don’t like the court’s decisions, change the people making them! That seems to be Barack Obama’s philosophy, as he gets ready to pick one of the biggest fights of his presidency with Republicans. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/obama-to-spend-second-term-packing-courts-with-liberal-activists/


Not Just Gosnell: No Such Thing as a “Humane” Abortion
Much attention has rightly gone to the horrible practices of convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell, who aborted babies alive, stabbed them in the back of the neck with surgical scissors, and snipped their spinal cords. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/not-just-gosnell-no-such-thing-as-a-humane-abortion/

Human Development 101 for Scientists and Abortion Backers
Embryology text books will tell you that when fertilization is completed, an embryo is formed. That, is, a new individual organism exists–which remains the same organism until death. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/human-development-101-for-scientists-and-abortion-backers/

Congressman’s Human Cloning Ban Would Actually Ban Human Cloning
Congressman Andy Harris (R-MD) has reintroduced a true ban on human cloning to the U.S. Congress. H.R. 2164, Human Cloning Prohibition Act of 2012, would ban human cloning all over the U.S. This is actually a remarkable bill. Why? Because most other “bans on human cloning” do nothing of the sort. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/congressmans-human-cloning-ban-would-actually-ban-human-cloning/

Women Deliver Conference a How-To on Breaking Abortion Laws
Abortion was rarely mentioned by dignitaries on stage during the international webcast portions of Women Deliver, a global conference on family planning. The non-webcast breakout sessions, however, featured late-term abortionists, radical activists describing how to skirt abortion laws, and World Health Organization experts promoting their how-to-do-abortions manua. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/women-deliver-conference-a-how-to-on-breaking-abortion-laws/

United Methodist Church Only Condemned Gosnell After Pro-Life Pressure
The D.C. lobby office of the United Methodist Church, the General Board of Church and Society (GBCS), has finally broken its silence about the “health care” offered by abortion and infanticide provider Kermit Gosnell. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/united-methodist-church-only-condemned-gosnell-after-pro-life-pressure/

Planned Parenthood Sues to Overturn Parental Notification on Abortion
The Planned Parenthood abortion business has always been against allowing parents to be notified when their minor daughter is considering an abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/planned-parenthood-sues-to-overturn-parental-notification-on-abortion/

Princess Mary of Denmark: Right to Abortion “At the Core of Human Life”
