Mother of murder victim pens letter to daughter’s killer, reveals her refusal to abort

When tragedy strikes, we often lash out at whomever we can, especially if there is someone to blame. But one mother, a retired New Orleans police officer, has chosen to forgive the man who murdered her daughter, and wrote a letter telling him so.

20-year-old Milan Arriola wasn’t 20-year-old Will Reed’s intended victim. She was just someone who was in the wrong place at the wrong time when he shot her to death as she drove her car. Milan’s mother, Imani Ruffins, reached out to Reed on Facebook, detailing how lucky she was to have had her daughter for 20 years and the sympathy she feels for Reed that he never knew such love.

Former abortionist describes how profitable abortion can be

This is one way in which abortion generates profit for clinics. But the doctors performing abortions also make a great deal of money.

In a speech at the “Meet the Abortion Providers” convention sponsored by Pro-Life Action League, former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino reveals how profitable the abortion industry is. He discusses how much easier it is to make a living out of doing abortions than trying to earn the same amount of money delivering babies.

Miracle baby with rare medical condition gets superhero cape for bravery

Jude Peters is an adorable one-year-old boy living with a disease called rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP), a rare and fatal form of dwarfism.

Parents Hannah and Sully Peters refused to abort Jude even when doctors pressured them to “terminate and try again.” In an interview with FOX News, Jude’s mother said doctors expected that he would only live a few weeks.

“They told me that he might not be compatible with life outside of the womb,” Hannah Peters said. “Then when he was born, they sent him home on hospice and said he wouldn’t make it a few weeks.”

Abortion advocates left with questions and heartbreak after Planned Parenthood video is released

The video of Planned Parenthood director Deborah Nucatola discussing the sale of fetal body parts while casually eating lunch may have dealt the abortion behemoth a blow they can’t recover from. Nucatola serves as Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services and talks openly about how best to maneuver preborn babies into position in order to kill them while still making sure that valuable body parts – hearts, lungs, livers – are able to be recovered.

The investigation rocked the nation, with the House of Representatives opening an investigation into Planned Parenthood, as well as five states vowing to investigate. The biggest setback for Planned Parenthood may be that this video threatens their core support group: pro-abortion advocates.

It was like a new Grimm’s Fairy Tale: “The better to harvest from you!”

Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) movingly spoke for many as the news broke on the floor of the House:

At a weekly press briefing July 16, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said he’d instructed committees to investigate, but added he’d “vomit” if he had to talk specifically about the contents of the video…

Planned Parenthood ‘absolutely’ involved in the illegal sale of baby parts, says investigative journalist

The man behind an undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood says the abortion giant is “absolutely” engaged in the illegal trafficking of fetal body parts. During an appearance on the “O’Reilly Factor,” David Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress, said his organization spent years investigating Planned Parenthood’s involvement in selling the parts of aborted babies— and he has the evidence to prove it.

“We spent three years with our actors and investigators undercover deeply embedded with Planned Parenthood affiliates and top level executives,” Daleiden said. “We have heard from their own mouths many, many times over that they sell the body parts, and that they make money off of doing so— and they have the profit motive in doing so.”
