Hobby Lobby Wins Injunction Stopping Enforcement of HHS Mandate
Today, a federal court granted Hobby Lobby a preliminary injunction against the HHS abortion-drug mandate. The injunction prevents the Obama administration from enforcing the mandate against the Christian company, which does not want to be compelled to pay for birth control or drugs that may cause abortions.
This victory comes less than a month after a landmark decision by the full 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled 5-3 that Hobby Lobby can exercise religion under the First Amendment and is likely to win its case against the mandate. That decision helped the Christian craft store not be force to pay fines while its lawsuit continues. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/07/19/hobby-lobby-wins-injunction-stopping-enforcement-of-hhs-mandate/
Did Local Official Help Planned Parenthood Hide Botched Abortion Killing Woman?
After Tonya Reaves died from complications during a botched second-trimester abortion suffered at a Chicago area Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on July 20, 2012 it took months for the medical examiner to release a report on her death.
Once a copy of Tonya Reaves autopsy report was made public, it showed the 24-year old woman died from the abortion she obtained at Planned Parenthood. The report indicated Reaves injuries were survivable if she had received proper emergency care in a timely manner. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/07/19/did-local-official-help-planned-parenthood-hide-botched-abortion-killing-woman/

The Planned Parenthood abortion business is closing yet another location this time in New Jersey. The abortion giant will close the facility it operates in Somerset County within the next month.
From a local news report: A woman who answered the phone at the Manville Planned Parenthood Thursday afternoon confirmed the location will be closing within the next month, although she said no particular closing date has been set yet. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/07/19/planned-parenthood-abortion-biz-closing-clinic-in-new-jersey/

Woman in Chinas Guizhou province is in critical condition after family planning officials beat her and forced her to submit to an abortion. The woman, named Li Fengfei, was 18 weeks pregnant at the time of the abortion.

Did Planned Parenthood Close Texas Abortion Centers to Hide Its Medicaid Fraud?
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast took the occasion of Texas Governor Rick Perrys signing of a new omnibus pro-life law today to announce it was closing three of its 12 clinics. The reason, per Huffington Post:
The three clinics are located in Bryan, Huntsville and Lufkin, Texas. They are closing in response to a new package of a new package of abortion restrictions signed into law on Thursday and funding cuts to Texas Womens Health Program that were passed by the Texas state legislature in 2011. Out of the three Planned Parenthood clinics that are closing, only the Bryan clinic performs abortions. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/07/19/did-planned-parenthood-close-texas-abortion-centers-to-hide-its-medicaid-fraud/
Wendy Davis and the Failed Reinvention of the Pro-Abortion Movement
Im a native Pennsylvanian who was working in the pro-life movement in that state when the news first broke of the atrocities that had taken place at Kermit Gosnells Womens Medical Center abortion clinic in West Philadelphia.
The details of the case sounded like something out of a horror movie. Yet it took the national media almost two years to cover it. Thanks to the persistence of pro-life advocates, the story finally made it into the living rooms of at least some of the American people in April 2013. America was horrified and disgusted. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/07/19/wendy-davis-and-the-failed-reinvention-of-the-pro-abortion-movement/
Pro-Abortion NAACP Rejects Black Conservatives From National Conference

Pro-Life Men Reject BroChoice More Abortions for More Sex Argument
Pro-abortion men, aided by top pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL, are pushing the BroChoice notion that abortion should remain legal so they can have as much consequence-free sex as theyd like. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/07/19/pro-life-men-reject-brochoice-more-abortions-for-more-sex-argument/
Effort to Ban Abortions in the Late-Term Abortion Capital of America Getting Close
A unique attempt at banning late-term abortions through the petition process at the city level is close to reaching its goal of 12,000 signatures in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a city that is now known as the Late-term Abortion Capital of the U.S. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/07/19/effort-to-ban-abortions-in-the-late-term-abortion-capital-of-america-getting-close/

From Choice to Not in Her Shoes: Planned Parenthood Sidesteps Abortion
The use of choice in the abortion debate was never substantive. Everyone understands that some choices are morally unproblematic (choosing to exercise, to eat ice cream, to talk with friends) and other choices are not (choosing to rape, to steal, to abuse children). http://www.lifenews.com/2013/07/19/from-choice-to-not-in-her-shoes-planned-parenthood-sidesteps-abortion/
