Late Monday afternoon, the judge in the case granted an extension for life support after a legal request from her family’s attorney.

Byrne, a Neonatologist who is the Director of Neonatology and Director of Pediatrics at St. Charles Mercy Hospital in Oregon, Ohio, has given a new interview to a local NBC television station. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/31/leading-pediatrician-jahi-mcmath-is-not-brain-dead-can-recover-with-proper-care/

Terri Schiavo’s Family Helping Jahi McMath’s Family Secure Transfer to New Hospital
The family of Terri Schiavo, who made international headlines when he husband starved and dehydrated her to death over the course of two weeks, has been quietly helping the family of Jahi McMath find a new hospital or medical facility that will provide her care.

News that Terri Schiavo’s brother Bobby Schindler, also a LifeNews guest blogger, is assisting the McMath family, follows on a judge’s decision allowing the McMath family more time to secure transfer for Jahi to a facility. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/31/terri-schiavos-family-helping-jahi-mcmaths-family-secure-transfer-to-new-hospital/

Court: Obama Admin Can’t Make Pro-Life Group Pay Fines for Not Obeying HHS Mandate
In a huge victory for Priests for Life, a pro-life organization, a federal appeals court has issued a ruling saying it doesn’t have to pay massive fines to the federal government for not obeying the HHS mandate, which forces religious groups and companies to pay for birth control or abortion-causing drugs for their employees.

An emergency injunction granted late this afternoon in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit means that Priests for Life will not have to obey the contraception mandate contained in the Affordable Care Act as its appeal is being heard. It also means that, tomorrow, Priests for Life will not have to cancel health insurance for its employees. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/31/court-obama-admin-cant-make-pro-life-group-pay-fines-for-not-obeying-hhs-mandate/



NYC Mayor: Horse-Drawn Carriages in Central Park “Inhumane,” Abortions Okay
Bill de Blasio, New York’s incoming mayor, apparently loves animals more than people. He thinks horse-drawn carriages in Central Park are “inhumane.” But abortions in New York City, which is the abortion capital of America given its ridiculously high abortion rates? No problem.

Fox News reports on de Blasio’s concern about horse-drawn carriages: New York City Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has vowed to move quickly to outlaw the horse-drawn carriages that pull tourists around the city’s famous Central Park. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/31/nyc-mayor-horse-drawn-carriages-in-central-park-inhumane-abortions-okay/

“I Had an Abortion But Am Still Pregnant Three Months Later,” Couple Keeps Baby This Time
Shannon Skinner had an abortion when she was eight weeks pregnant, or so she thought. She already had a four-month-old baby and she and partner Anthony were “having problems” so they decided abortion was the best answer as opposed to a second baby.

But after the abortion, Skinner continued to have morning sickness and to feel the unborn baby’s movements. After consulting a physician, she received word that the movements were just an after-effect of the abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/31/i-had-an-abortion-but-am-still-pregnant-three-months-later-couple-keeps-baby-this-time/



Former Abortion Clinic Staffer: “When I Saw the Baby’s Face I Knew We Killed a Human Being”
In 2008 The Population Research Institute published a testimony from the former medical director of an abortion clinic whose name was given as Zlata. Although she had been so committed to abortion that she worked in the clinic for six years, Zlata now considers herself pro-life. She tells her story:

“I remember assisting, once in particular, in the operating room at the clinic where I had been a medical assistant for six years. I was standing behind the doctor and could see everything as he was performing an abortion on a woman who was 20 – 22 weeks pregnant.” http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/31/former-abortion-clinic-staffer-when-i-saw-the-babys-face-i-knew-we-killed-a-human-being/
