Planned Parenthood HQ Has Sent 15 Women in 26 Months to Hospital After Botched Abortions

Planned Parenthood’s flagship abortion facility, located in the heart of Manhattan, has apparently injured another woman, who required ambulance transport to a nearby hospital.

On March 6, 2019, two ambulances arrived at the Margaret Sanger Center Planned Parenthood, located at 26 Bleecker Street. One pro-life witness told Operation Rescue that the first emergency crew entered the Planned Parenthood high-rise with a gurney.
However, since…

Pro Life Corner

Since legalizing abortion in 1973 the incidence of child abuse has soared at an alarming rate. Abortion weakens the social taboo against hurting the helpless and diminishes the value of life. If you don’t believe it, just watch the news. Abortions are 100% fatal to the baby and it’s never the baby’s “choice.” The abortion business makes a killing by getting away with murder! Lord, deliver us from the darkness of abortion and euthanasia.

A Letter from an Elected Legislator

This is the response by Senator Dick Durbin about the bill S.311. Evidently he does not even recognize a baby outside of the womb as a human being. Just another disagreement, not many more millions murdered. S.311 protects babies born! It is not abortion, it is infanticide! No excuses! If you are willing to protect the LGTBQ community with laws that are already in place that protect them, then why not protect these living babies in the same way? Let Senator Durbin know that you disagree.

Mr. Timothy Barr
229 Washington Place
Freeport, IL 61032-5171
Dear Mr. Barr:

Thank you for contacting me about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311). Though we disagree on this issue, I respect your deeply held views.
I believe that abortion should be safe and legal, consistent with Roe v. Wade. A decision that personal is best left to a woman, her family, her doctor, and her conscience. Although abortion is an issue that has divided Americans, I believe we can acknowledge a woman’s right to access safe reproductive health care services, while working to reduce the number of abortions.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, introduced by Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, was introduced with the stated purpose of ensuring that infants born alive during a failed abortion were not subsequently killed. … Continue reading

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit issued an order Thursday vacating a 2014 district-court decision against the Eternal Word Television Network in its lawsuit against the so-called contraceptive mandate issued by the Department of Health and Human Services. The order follows a settlement between the network and the Department of Justice reached Oct. 5.
Under the terms of the settlement, EWTN will not be required to provide contraception, sterilization or abortifacients through its employee health-care plan.
“This moment has been a long time coming,” said EWTN Chairman and…
