Documentary shows Belgian doctor euthanizing a depressed, suicidal woman

A new PBS documentary glowingly features euthanasia in Belgium, including one performed on video by Dr. Marc Van Hoey, one of the leading advocates of assisted suicide in Belgium. ProWomanProLife featured the video, which will send chills down the spine of any sane person who watches it.

In this video, a woman named Eva wants to be euthanized because she has been struggling with depression her entire life. She is suicidal and has attempted to kill herself many times. Now, she’ll finally be successful, because an obliging Belgian doctor was not bothered at all by the fact that he was killing a healthy young woman who was struggling with mental illness.

New poll shows most Americans would ban abortion after the first trimester

People on both sides of the abortion debate had much to talk about when Republicans introduced a bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

NARAL lobbied hard against it, and though the bill easily passed the House before and is supported by a majority of Americans, Obama promised to veto it. The bill was tabled due to debate over the rape exception, which is unfortunate for apparently both pro-lifers and pro-abortion advocates alike. A new poll shows that a whopping 84% of Americans want to ban abortion after the first trimester, and that includes 7 out of 10 who consider themselves “pro-choice.”

Obama promises to veto 20-week abortion ban

The abortion lobby has been very nervous about the possibility of a nationwide 20-week abortion ban. The bill is scheduled for a vote in the House on Thursday, where it is expected to pass, and if it does, it will move to the Senate.

Republicans hold a majority in both houses, so there is a good chance that the bill will get sent to President Obama. The White House, however, has announced that Obama will veto the bill.

Amanda Marcotte wants people to abort babies with Down syndrome

North Dakota recently passed a bill outlawing the abortion of babies based on birth defects, like Down syndrome. Pro-lifers and disability advocates alike cheered the decision, because it is horrific to deprive a baby of life simply because he does not meet our society’s standards of perfection.

It is disgusting to see how low we will stoop to avoid “defective” babies, with mothers aborting their children even for very minor defects like cleft lips, which can be repaired. So to see North Dakota step up and ban these abortions is a step in the right direction, reaffirming that people with disabilities and birth defects have intrinsic value and worth just as the rest of us do, and that they deserve life, too. Some people, though, disagree.

Indiana state senator Travis Holdman has just introduced a similar bill to the one passed in North Dakota, and Amanda Marcotte is not happy about it.

Pro-abortion editor of RH Reality Check says there is “no difference” between pro-lifers and Islamic terrorists

Take a minute and think about the difference between pro-lifers and Islamic terrorists. One group wants to save lives; the other takes them. It really is that simple. The two have nothing whatsoever in common. Islamic terrorists kill people around the world in a sick sacrifice to their twisted fanaticism for violence and bloodlust, as well as force women to live as second-class citizens and slaves. They commit appalling human rights abuses. Pro-lifers…try to protect unborn children.

To any rational person, there isn’t any comparison between the two. But to pro-abortion extremist Jodi Jacobson, editor-in-chief of the radically pro-abortion website RH Reality Check, pro-lifers are just like Islamic terrorists. To her, there’s no difference at all.

Anti-life extremists say they would kill unborn babies even if they could be safely removed from the womb

Imagine if unborn babies, at any gestation, could be removed from a mother’s body and implanted into an artificial womb. It seems like it would be the perfect compromise for pro-lifers and pro-abortion activists: women wouldn’t have to take the lives of unborn babies, and yet they wouldn’t have to be pregnant if they didn’t want to be. Win-win, right?

Unfortunately not — even this seemingly common-ground proposal has abortion extremists angry.

NARAL very unhappy as Republicans propose national late-term abortion ban

It’s only a few days into the new year, and already NARAL is on defense. One of the first actions the newly elected Congress has taken is to introduce a bill that protects life at 20 weeks of pregnancy — and NARAL is fighting mad.

E-mails sent to NARAL supporters described the bill as “McConnell’s first attack,” claiming that voters don’t support the idea of a 20-week abortion ban. Ilyse Hogue also sent out a petition asking supporters to send a message to Mitch McConnell asking him to stop his “attack” on abortion.

Nicki Minaj opens up about abortion; says it ‘haunted me all my life’

Nicki Minaj is a female hip-hop powerhouse with millions of fans around the world. Most of her songs have been upbeat, but she says that her latest album, The Pinkprint, will be more personal. After hinting at an abortion earlier this year, Minaj has finally opened up to her fans about the experience in a Rolling Stone interview, admitting that she had an abortion, and that it has haunted her all her life.

Minaj’s first love was an older guy from Queens she dated while attending the prestigious Manhattan performing-arts high school LaGuardia. When she discovered she was pregnant, “I thought I was going to die,” she admits. “I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through.” She ended up having an abortion, a decision she says has “haunted me all my life,” though it was the right choice for her at the time. “It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”

She wrote about her abortion and the pain she still feels from it in the song, “Autobiography.”

Planned Parenthood celebrates Christmas with a picture of a birth control snowflake

There is seemingly no holiday that the abortion industry will not exploit to promote their anti-life agenda, and Planned Parenthood usually leads this charge. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, you name it – they’ll force themselves into it. So why should Christmas be any different?

In their typical oh-so-classy fashion, Planned Parenthood tweeted out a picture wishing their followers happy holidays with a birth control snowflake, just in time for Christmas.

Look, there’s nothing wrong with access to contraceptives, provided that people aren’t being forced to violate their religious beliefs by paying for it. But is Christmas really the time to be pushing birth control?

Salon writer wants pretty abortion clinics, isn’t so concerned about patient safety

What do pregnant women need? Not support, or resources, or a safe clinic to go to. Apparently, all us ladies want only to go to places that are pretty. That’s what abortion advocates have been trying to convince us of, anyway, with the latest effort coming out of Salon. Katie McDonough features architect Lori Brown in an article McDonough titles “Making Abortion Clinics Beautiful.”

Powerful video from paralyzed boy shows that every life matters

Many people don’t get the opportunity to come face-to-face with a person who has a disability. Rarer still is getting an honest view of how a person feels about their disability. But millions caught a glimpse into the life of an extraordinary individual living with a disability after actor Ashton Kutcher shared the following video with 18 million of his followers on social media.

Cashel Gardner is a 17-year-old living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which, for Cashel, means that he cannot move, breathe, talk, or eat on his own. But he made this video to show that his life is fulfilling and valuable – and that everyone matters.
