And They Want You To Believe That Abortions Are Safe And Rare!

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

This past Friday Tonya Reaves, 24, died from a hemorrhage after an abortion at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Chicago. Many people may think that this is a rare occurrence but nothing can be further from the truth. Botched abortions happen all the time and yes some even result in death. Unfortunately, the abortion industry is so under regulated that many of the complication from abortions go unreported or are reported but absent the abortion component.

This is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. The CBS Chicago article states, “Tonya Reaves, 24, died late Friday night from a hemorrhage, with a cervical dilation and evacuation, as well as an intrauterine pregnancy as contributing causes, according to the medical examiner’s office.

“She died after she’d had an abortion at Planned Parenthood at 18 S. Michigan Av, according to the medical examiner’s office.”

“Her death was ruled an accident.”

And what did Planned Parenthood have to say about her death?

In a written statement, Planned Parenthood of Illinois CEO Carole Brite said “We were shocked and saddened upon learning of a tragic development at a nearby hospital. Our hearts go out to the loved ones of this patient.

“While legal abortion services in the United States have a very high safety record, a tragedy such as this is devastating to loved ones and we offer our deepest sympathies. Planned Parenthood of Illinois cares deeply about the health and safety of each and every patient. We do not publicly discuss private patient matters and we follow HIPAA laws that forbid the disclosure of patient information.”

But will Planned Parenthood be held responsible? Probably not. Should they? Absolutely.

As Operation Rescue writes in their article, “Abortion deaths like this are completely avoidable. When a woman bleeds to death after an abortion, it is usually an indication of error on the part of the abortionist coupled with a delay in calling for emergency assistance. Planned Parenthood should be held accountable,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. “Our heartfelt prayers go out to the victim’s family at this time of tragic loss.”

Carol Everett, an ex. abortionist speaks out in Bloodmoney and tells of the many incidents of botched abortions and the industries lack of care for the safety of the women. Their main goal was to make money, laws and rules be damned.

The main media doesn’t report on this too much because they are beholding to the liberals. Only when something as horrific as the Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who ran an abortion clinic so horrific that it was called the “House of Horror” will the media report on it. But check out a pro-life website like Operation Rescue and you will see report after report of botched abortions.

We must start demanding that regulatory agencies start doing their jobs and inspect abortion clinics and if found in violation of the law, shut them down. Women need to be protected from predators that are more interested in the almighty dollar than they are about the safety of their patients.

Fibromyalgia, Abortion and artificial/invasive birth control chemicals and procedures… Really?

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Psychiatrist and researcher Dr. Philip Ney relates the story of a patient of his who developed fibromyalgia, which causes chronic pain without any apparent cause. He found that she had undergone an abortion just before this pain began, and since then, has developed a theory that in some cases, the pain of fibromyalgia may in fact be caused by chemicals released by the aborted baby’s flesh when it is torn apart. These chemicals cross the placenta, and lodge in the mother’s nervous system. In reality, she is feeling not her own pain, but that of her aborted child. We have not yet begun to understand all the implications of abortion, and of how destroying a child in the womb destroys the rest of us.

Let’s pray that our society may forsake abortion and find healing.

Silent No More founders: From China, we can learn the truth about abortion and breast cancer

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Janet Morana and Georgette Forney, co-founders of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, today issued the following statement about a new study conducted in China that establishes an abortion-breast cancer link.

“This is a perfect time for a study that finds an abortion-breast cancer link to come out of China, while the world’s attention is still focused on the fate of forced abortion protester Chen Guangcheng,” Mrs. Morana and Mrs. Forney said. “Perhaps it’s time for an honest assessment of how this common surgical procedure – sold to American women and forced on unwilling Chinese women – is actually hurting all women.

The study reported in the Asian Pacific Journal of Breast Cancer Prevention concluded that “compared with women who had no history of induced abortion, women with a previous induced abortion had a significant increased risk of breast cancer.” For older women, the risk of developing breast cancer was even higher. To read the study, click HERE.

These findings were not unexpected.

“Medical professionals in the pro-life community in the United States have recognized the abortion breast cancer link for decades, but our ‘pro-choice’ culture can’t hear a bad word spoken about abortion,” the Silent No More co-founders said. “From China, where abortion is a tool of a repressive government, we can learn the truth. Abortion hurts women in so many ways. And one of those ways is that it increases the risk of breast cancer, which annually kills more than 39,000 women in the United States alone.

“Abortionists should be required by law to share this vital information with the women who come to them to end their pregnancies.”

Since the launch of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 4,845 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 865 gatherings in 48 states and 10 countries where more than 110,830 attendees have heard the truth about abortion’s negative aftereffects. More than 10,100 people representing 57 countries are registered to be Silent No More. Raising awareness about the hurtful aftermath of abortion and the help that is available to cope with the pain are two of the Campaign’s goals. The Campaign has over 1,300 testimonies posted here, with over 120 that are shared via video!

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit Silent No More Awareness Campaign.

International Catholic Organization to File Lawsuit against Obama Administration for Conscience Violation Regarding Forced Coverage of Abortion and Contraception

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: February 8, 2012

Staten Island, NY – Priests for Life, a New York based international pro-life organization of Catholic clergy and laity, today announced that it will be filing a lawsuit against the Obama Administration in an effort to seek injunctive relief from impending regulations that would require the organization to pay for employee health insurance that covers abortion-inducing drugs, contraception, and sterilization.

The Obama Administration’s rules – recently brought forth by a decree from the Department of Health and Human Services – are part of the controversial “ObamaCare” health insurance law (the so-called “Affordable Care Act”) that was passed by Congress in 2010 amidst endless ambiguities, confusion, and false assurances by President Obama himself that it would never be used to violate any organization’s or individual’s conscience on moral issues.

Now that the new HHS rules have been formally issued, however, Americans of all faiths are stunned that the Obama Administration is going to require employers to provide health insurance coverage for certain acts that go directly against their consciences or religious beliefs.

The lawsuit will seek injunctive relief from the HHS rules – first on behalf of Priests for Life, and hopefully extending universally since all organizations and companies will be affected by the tyrannical HHS decree. Priests for Life is particularly well placed to pursue this litigation because its primary purposes are to promote and protect life whereas the primary purposes of the contraceptive mandate are to prevent and destroy life.

According to Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, “It’s unthinkable that President Obama would force Americans of any faith to violate their consciences. Yet here he is, arrogantly imposing these regulations that clearly discriminate against Catholics and all Christians, as well as people of any faith who believe in the sanctity of innocent human life. This has clearly become a human rights case – and is no longer just a partisan political football.”

Priests for Life has retained noted civil rights attorney Charles LiMandri of San Diego to represent them in their lawsuit against Obama. LiMandri achieved national distinction by saving the famous “Mt. Soledad Cross” – a historic war memorial that had been erected on public property many decades ago, which local atheists sought to have torn down. He has also fought for the rights of San Diego firefighters who were forced to participate in a vulgar “gay pride” parade against their will or else face termination. He was also the General Counsel for the National Organization for Marriage–California during the successful Proposition 8 Campaign to save traditional marriage.

LiMandri remarks, “This is the first time in history any administration has used brute force to compel someone to violate his conscience or moral convictions. It’s unheard of. It’s also antithetical to the core American principles of religious liberty and freedom from invasions of privacy. We intend to fight the ill-conceived HHS edict and challenge it on constitutional grounds. This case could go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. And we’ll be happy to take it there if need be.”

Priests for Life is the largest Catholic pro-life organization in the United States. It is a private association of the faithful and an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit educational corporation. Under the Obama Administration’s new HHS rules, it is treated like any other corporation and therefore must comply with these conscience-violating mandates, decrees, and punitive measures.

Priests for Life applauds the members of Congress who have introduced legislation to address the HHS policy, and will also support the efforts of the Church, and many other groups, to pass such legislation.

Further details of the lawsuit will be forthcoming.

Diagnosing the Problem

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

An extremely overweight woman calls her doctor’s office to schedule an appointment to get rid of all the excess fat. An appointment is made for liposuction surgery the following week.

The day of the surgery comes and the woman goes to the doctor’s office for surgery. Before surgery a counselor escorts the woman to a small room where they explain the liposuction procedure and what she can expect. She is given a pamphlet with a list of foods that are safe for her to eat subsequent to her surgery so that she doesn’t put on the weight back and ends up back for surgery again. The list of foods includes a picture next to each food. The food includes items like hamburgers, french fries, ice cream, cake, hot dogs, and pizza. However, the pictures next to the food items are those of vegetable and fruits. Additionally, she’s given a prescription to take with each meal which is supposed to prevent her body from converting the food to fat. (Studies have shown that it is not always effective.)

The discussion with the counselor does not include anything about the actual surgery, the risks of the surgery or any side effects. All she is told that once she has the surgery everything will be okay and she can resume her life as before without the extra fat.

She is not counseled on good eating habits, on exercising, on food quantity consumption, or the dangers of the liposuction surgery.

The narrative above shocks the conscience of the average person. If a doctor acted this recklessly and without real regard for the patient, the public would be in an uproar and would call for the revocation of the doctor’s license.

So why aren’t people in an uproar over the abortion industry?

They do the same thing.

An extremely pregnant woman calls her doctor’s office to schedule an appointment to get rid of all the baby. An appointment is made for abortion surgery the following week.

The day of the surgery comes and the woman goes to the doctor’s office for surgery. Before surgery a counselor escorts the woman to a small room where they explain the abortion procedure and what she can expect. She is given a pamphlet with a list of sexual activities that are safe for her to try subsequent to her surgery so that she doesn’t get pregnant and ends up back for surgery again. The list of sexual activities includes . . . . However, the picture next to the sexual activities are those of non-pregnant women. Additionally, she’s given a condom to use with each sexual act which is supposed to prevent her body from becoming pregnant. (Studies have shown that it is not always effective.)

The discussion with the counselor does not include anything about the actual surgery, the risks of the surgery or any side effects. All she is told that once she has the surgery everything will be okay and she can resume her life as before without the baby.

She is not counseled on abstinence, on chastity, on adoption, or the dangers of the abortion surgery.

The abortion industry must be stopped. The public must be educated on what really happens in abortion centers. We must make know the effects of abortion on the women who have had an abortion and the men who have been involved an abortion.

But most importantly, we must educate men and women on how to prevent pregnancy. The only 100% sure way is through abstinence and chastity. Stopping promiscuity is the first step in ending the unplanned pregnancy issue and thus ending abortion.

New Hearing Set for Accused Murderer Riley; Brigham Will Not Fight Extradition

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012


Written by Operation Rescue

Salt Lake City, UT – Accused murderer Nicola Riley made a brief court appearance in Salt Lake City, Utah, yesterday, her first one since being arrested on a fugitive warrant issued by Maryland authorities after a grand jury issued murder indictments for her and her associate Steven Chase Brigham.

Riley’s hearing was continued until January 9 when her attorney is expected to ask for bail and extradition back to Maryland to face charges will be considered. She is currently being held without bail. Her attorneys have stated that they want her released on bail so she can self-surrender to authorities in Maryland.

“Based on her history of dishonesty and criminal conduct, it would be unwise to trust Riley to turn herself in,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “She is being charged with murder, not jaywalking. Release on bail is inappropriate.”

Riley served three years in a Federal Military Prison at Ft. Leavenworth in Kansas after being convicted of felonies related to credit card and identity theft. She lied about her charges and incarceration to medical board authorities in three states in order to gain licensure. Operation Rescue discovered the untruths and reported her to the authorities. Her licenses have since been surrendered or restricted.

Meanwhile, the Baltimore Sun has reported that Brigham, who is being held on $3 million bail in the Camden County Jail in New Jersey, is not expected to fight extradition. His hearing is scheduled for January 5.

Brigham was charged with five counts of first-degree murder and five counts of second-degree murder. Riley was charged with one count of first-degree murder and one count of second-degree murder. The charges are the result of a Grand Jury investigation. Additionally, Brigham and Riley were each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit murder. A grand jury investigated the case for 16 months before issuing the indictments.

Additional details of the case are expected to be released at the time Brigham and Riley are arraigned and the court records unsealed.

Don’t Abort, Parents are Waiting to Adopt Down Syndrome Kids

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

LifeNews.com
By Matt Bowman

A friend of mine wrote this inspiring article in last week’s Washington Post Magazine, about a family that has birthed or adopted several children with Down Syndrome.

Many sources report that there are long waiting lists in the U.S. for parents who want to adopt children with Down Syndrome. This is somewhat obviously due to the medical industry and wider culture’s push to abort “less-than-perfect” children, leading to a 90% abortion rate of babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome.

The article indicates the loving experience that families have when they welcome children with special needs (despite the task being sometimes difficult–or possibly, because of it):

Nina hopes that more people will face the fear of having a handicapped child — and come out on the other side, as she did. When she was pregnant with her other children, she says, she would think, “ ‘Oh, my God, what if I had a Down child?’” Now she says, “Why was I so afraid?”

The National Down Syndrome Adoption Network both supports parents in choosing adoption of their own children with special needs if they feel they are not in a position to parent them, and helps parents interested in adopting to link up with such families or with older children.

Let’s Not Forget About the Horrors of Abortion

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Do you remember Dr. Kermit Gosnell and the abortion clinic which became more commonly known as “House of Horrors”?

On January 19, 2011 Dr. Kermit Gosnell and nine other employees from the West Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society were arrested and charged with various offenses ranging like murder, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to participate in a corrupt organization, illegally administering drugs to patients without a license, and perjury.

Officials described his squalid clinic like something out of a horror movie.

“There were bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses scattered throughout the building,” said Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams. “There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”

Dr. Gosnell aborted some babies by fully delivering the babies and then sticking scissors in the back of the babies’ necks and severing their spinal cords.

When the story first came out there was a lot of media coverage. Then as time has gone on people started forgetting about what was found at this abortion clinic. Many who are not in the pro-life movement probably never even heard of the arrests or if they did they just dismissed it as just another terrible crime in today’s world. But we can’t forget because although this case is a pretty horrible, disturbing one, the same type of abortion centers are still open all over this country. And they too are hurting women.

While film BLOODMONEY describes some of the inner workings of the abortion industry, we must realize that there is so much more to know about what goes on behind closed doors of these killing centers.

Some states like Kansas and Illinois are enacting laws to regulate the abortion clinics which the abortion industry is fighting profusely to limit abortion accountability. The abortion industry doesn’t want to be regulated because it would cut into their profits. They would have to spend time and money to sterilize instruments; they would have to clean rooms where abortions are performed between patients; they would have to pay to have qualified personnel working at these clinics. All of these things cost money and cuts into their profits.

To date, six of the defendants have pled guilty to charges ranging from murder to perjury, most for murder. Some are probably going to testify against the other four which includes Dr. Gosnell.

Pray for the prosecutors in Philadelphia, for their vigorous prosecution of this case and for setting an example for other states to follow. This abortion clinic in Philadelphia is not an isolated case. Like I said earlier, there are abortion clinics all over this country that are operating in the same manner as the “House of Horrors” operated.

We pray that other prosecutors in other states find the courage to do the right thing. They need to go after those that do not follow even the simplest steps to assure cross-contamination from unsterilized instruments; they need to go after those that botch abortions; they need to go after those that disregard regulations.

We must also pray for those who are involved in the killings that they too can come to the light. The late Dr. Bernard Nathanson was one such doctor that saw the evil of what he was doing and got out of the business and began speaking out against abortion. Read his testimony HERE.

We need strong men/women of conviction to protect women from doctors like Gosnell.

Pray to end abortion!

God bless!

Fr. Pavone: ‘Voices from the Womb’ Will Change Hearts and Minds

Friday, October 14th, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: October 14, 2011

Contact: Andre Kim
347-286-7277

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement about “Voices from the Womb,” a project that gave federal lawmakers an opportunity to see babies in the womb via ultrasound.

Fr. Frank said, “The ground-breaking project called ‘Voices From the Womb,’ which brought live ultrasound to the U.S. Capitol Thursday, was a stroke of brilliance that will now be repeated across the nation. It should be required viewing for lawmakers in every state that has yet to pass a bill ensuring that a mother has an ultrasound before aborting her child.

“Abortion supporters claim these laws don’t respect the woman’s ability to make informed choices,” Father Frank continued. “But on the contrary, they precisely enhance that ability, by helping her see what she often finds out too late, that the baby is far more developed than her abortionist admits.”

Father Pavone applauded the National Pro-Life Center (of which he serves as Pastoral Director and which he helped develop) for organizing “Voices from the Womb,” together with the Stanton Project, the Christian Defense Coalition and the Knights of Columbus, which supported the project financially.

“When pro-life groups work together, we can change hearts and minds, and laws,” he said.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Be Aware of the Link Between Abortion and Breast Cancer

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Every October people across America are reminded that breast cancer is a huge problem for women. Many organizations bring awareness to the issue and try to educate women about the possible causes of breast cancer but not all are telling you the whole truth.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is one such organization. They do some good but they also contribute to an organization, Planned Parenthood, which performs abortions. Along with all the listed causes/links to breast cancer: Women who have had abortions have an increased risk of getting breast cancer.

Donating to Komen for the Cure amounts to the same thing as writing two checks, one to Komen for the Cure and another to Planned Parenthood.

Why an organization that is trying to find a cure for breast cancer is teaming up with an organization that is helping women get breast cancer is unimaginable. That’s like an organization saying that they want to make abortions rare on the one hand while encouraging sexual activity among young people on the other hand (which Planned Parenthood does by the way).

According to a recent article on LifeNews.com, “’Many studies have linked an increased risk of developing breast cancer after an abortion, yet both Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood deny the risk abortion poses to breast health,’ TRTL says.

“The Tennessee pro-life leader says his group recommends the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, Polycarp Research Institute and Coalition on Abortion / Breast Cancer as three organizations dedicated to stopping breast cancer as ones pro-life advocates can support.”

Dr. Gerard Nadal does as good a job explaining why abortion leads to an increased risk of developing breast cancer as any I’ve ever seen. Read his article HERE.

Donate to a real breast cancer prevention organizations and help find a cure for breast cancer while telling Komen for the Cure that you know about their support of Planned Parenthood and you won’t be supporting either of them from now on.
