The Sexual Revolution and Its Victims: When Will We Learn?

Image
Christian Headlines By John Stonestreet and Roberto Rivera (Breakpoint) - Posted at Christian Headlines: This story has everything … Reproductive technology? Check! Same-sex union? Check! Autism? Check! Lawsuits? Check! The assumption that a child “product” of reproductive technology that someone paid for is “defective”? Check! In fact, I’m not sure I’ve seen a story in the last decade that more definitively proves what we often say around the Colson Center: Ideas have consequences. Bad ideas have victims. A recent Washington Post article tells of an Illinois woman who has struggled to raise two children, her now six- and seven-year-old sons. Both have autism. But this story isn’t about her day to day life dealing with these challenges. It’s about why the boys are autistic in the first place. Both of her sons were conceived by sperm donation, from the same nameless donor, “Donor H898.” This woman chose artificial insemination because her female partner, well, could not i

In Memory of Dr. Pat McEwen

By Jay Rogers - Posted at The Forerunner: Published 9.22.2019 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen (Matthew 28:18-20). Pat McEwen, missionary to the nations, died on Thursday, September 12th, 2019. “Miss Pat” had been a friend of mine since the fall of 1993. From 1993 to 2000, I lived in and owned a house across the street from an infamous abortion center in Melbourne, Florida. Due to a restrictive “no-free-speech” buffer zone, the site became a “hot bed” for pro-life activism. During that time, sidewalk evangelists and counselors cut the abortion rate in our county in half . This is while the abortion rate in every other county in Florida rose . The abortion cent

Illinois Right to Life Responds To News That More Than 2,200 Fetuses Were Discovered On Deceased Abortionist’s Property

https://illinoisrighttolife.org/ IRL News Release: September 16, 2019 – (CHICAGO) Illinois Right to Life (IRL) responded on Monday to news that 2,246 medically-preserved fetuses were found on the Will County, IL property of deceased Indiana abortionist Ulrich Klopfer over the weekend. Klofper, who died on Sept. 3, was a disgraced physician whose license was suspended in 2016 after he was charged with failure to report abortions performed on at least two girls under the age of 14. Klopfer performed abortions at The Women’s Pavilion – a now-closed clinic at the center of a local South Bend controversy involving Democratic Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg during his time as mayor. Klopfer owned a home in Crete, IL – about 35 miles south of Chicago in Will County – where it’s been suggested by some media sources that the fetuses were found by his family. “If these fetuses are not members of our human family, why are we appalled?” said IRL Executive Director Mary Kate Knorr. “A

Abortionist  Ulrich Klopfer - Image Source:  Family Council By Vic Ryckaert - Posted at IndyStar.com: After Dr. Ulrich Klopfer died in rural Crete, Illinois, on Sept. 3, authorities found "2,246 medically preserved fetal remains" in his home. Klopfer performed thousands of abortions in northern Indiana clinics before his medical license was revoked in 2016. But it's unclear where the fetal remains came from, though the Will County, Illinois, Sheriff's office said in a news release there was no evidence that Klopfer performed abortions on his Illinois property. Public records show that Klopfer had not been licensed to practice medicine in Illinois since 1990, when he failed to renew his license. Records do not show Klopfer holding any other state's medical license after the Indiana suspension. Continue reading... HT: Hoosiers for Life

5 incredible revelations from this week’s abortion hearing in California

Merritt and Daleiden at court, faced with fifteen counts of wire-tapping. - The Cripplegate By Jesse Johnson - Posted at The Cripplegate: One of the wildest criminal proceedings in the history of legalized abortion is happening this week in San Francisco. David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt are on trial for posing as potential buyers for the body parts of aborted babies. As part of their investigation they recorded conversations in restaurants with Planned Parenthood employees where they haggled over the prices and methods by which the “tissue” would be harvested. When Daleiden and Merritt began releasing their videos, there was public uproar, which was partially responsible for the election of President Trump, as well as the ending of much of Planned Parenthood’s government funding. These videos clearly capture Planned Parenthood employees breaking federal law, which prohibits the sale of fetal tissue for profit . But somehow Planned Parenthood workers have never been prose

How One Nurse’s Secret Abortion Became a Life-Saving Story

Image
By Karen Ingle - Posted at Pregnancy Help News : In 1985, a silent and numb seventeen-year-old girl named Michele tagged along as her boyfriend’s mother took care of the paperwork—first for her pregnancy test in a Missouri strip mall, and then for her abortion at a clinic in West St. Louis County. “The majority of my life I lived as ‘the girl who had an abortion’,” said Michele Menke, the nurse manager for Hand 'n Hand Pregnancy Center in Barnhart, Missouri. Only no one knew that secret but Michele, her boyfriend, and his mother. For decades, fear ruled her life—fear of exposure, fear of her parents’ disapproval, and fear that her sorrow would never end. But fear, she says today, is a liar. “Fear paralyzes you,” Menke said. “You can’t think or function the way you normally do.” Having grown up in a church-going family, she would have described herself as pro-life. “That was one of the hardest things: I knew it was wrong, but I just couldn’t think at the time,” she said. “

In Court Hearing, Planned Parenthood Employee Admits To Trafficking In Baby Body Parts

Wikimedia By Lauren Fink - Posted at The Federalist : Day one of the preliminary hearing for pro-life activist David Daleiden kicked off Tuesday morning at the San Francisco Superior Court with testimony from an abortion technician, a third-trimester abortionist, and a vice president of the National Abortion Federation, who testified she doesn’t know what a human tissue procurement company is or does. NAF Vice President of External Affairs Melissa Fowler also testified she recognized StemExpress—a human tissue procurement lab exposed in Daleiden’s undercover videos that is now under federal investigation—as a repeat vendor of her for-profit organization. NAF is a third-party abortion trade group. The nine-day hearing is the first time Planned Parenthood leaders and affiliates have publicly gathered and testified in court since Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress published 11 undercover videos featuring Planned Parenthood leaders discussing—and in some videos displaying—th

Judge Dismisses Father’s Lawsuit Against Alabama Abortion Facility That Killed His Unborn Child

Image
By Heather Clark - Posted at Christian News Network: HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A county circuit judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by an Alabama teenager who sued the abortion facility that killed his son or daughter despite his wishes that his girlfriend keep the baby. “[T]he court finds that Plaintiff’s asserted claims for punitive money damages are not cognizable under Alabama law, including the Alabama Wrongful Death Act,” Madison County Circuit Judge Chris Comer wrote, according to AL.com. Comer ruled that 19-year-old Ryan Magers didn’t show that Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives in Huntsville had broken any law in performing the abortion, nor did he show personal injury. He also concluded that federal and state law protects abortion facilities from such legal action. The abortion facility had filed a motion for Comer to dismiss the case, arguing that the abortion was legal and it had done nothing wrong. Continue reading...
