(New Wave Feminists) The documentary film After Tiller is a fascinating look at the abortion industry, but it’s also a fascinating piece of propaganda. It delves into the issue of late-term abortions, a topic too grisly for most people to consider.
The film focuses on a few of the few – the tiny percentage of abortionists who will do the procedure all the way into the third trimester of pregnancy. Only four doctors to be exact.
Dr. Hern is one of them. Most days he commits late term abortions in Boulder, Colorado. However, when reminiscing about how he got his start in After Tiller, he talks about his peace corp days in Brazil…
(LifeSiteNews) – The newly installed Catholic archbishop of Denver, Colorado, is renowned for his strong pro-life activism, and now we know why.
To mark the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Archbishop Samuel Aquila has penned a surprisingly personal pastoral letter in which he recounts two disturbing encounters he had with abortion while studying medicine in college – encounters that he says made him pro-life.
Archbishop Aquila explains that when he went to college in the late 1960s, he wasn’t practicing his faith. He spent the first three years working as a hospital orderly and helping in the emergency room.
(LifeSiteNews) An abortion industry worker left her job at a Planned Parenthood facility – and eventually brought four of her colleagues out of the abortion industry with her – shortly after she witnessed a woman abort her quadruplets. Most of them were delivered stillborn as she sat on the toilet or stumbled through the hallway, writhing in pain.
Two of the “perfectly formed” boys had their arms “wrapped around each other,” according to an e-mail she sent pro-life advocate Abby Johnson.
A San Antonio woman amended a sexual discrimination lawsuit this week, accusing her former employer of coercing her into an abortion, in addition to his alleged sexual discrimination and harassment.
The woman, Stephanie Cordero, joined her attorneys and Allan Parker of The Justice Foundation on Thursday on the steps of the Bexar County Courthouse in San Antonio, at a press conference announcing the amended suit. In January of 2015, Cordero, a former salesperson at Tom Benson Chevrolet, filed a sex discrimination suit against the dealership and her manager, Ernesto Davila. The amended suit, The Justice Foundation says, is even more serious…
I have written at length about how the ‘counseling’ in abortion facilities is often coercive, misleading and outright dishonest. In Cynthia Gorney’s massive book about abortion, Articles of Faith: A Frontline History of the Abortion Wars, an abortion center counselor describes a typical counseling session she has with partners of women who come in for abortions.
As we approach the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, pro-lifers plan to assemble for the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. The annual event is a chance for life advocates to show their opposition to the legalization of abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.
Abortion activists are not happy and are gearing up for a confrontation with pro-lifers.
Kermit Gosnell committed horrendous crimes in his abortion facility in West Philadelphia over nearly three decades. Some he got away with. Some he will spend the rest of his life in prison for. When looking at the timeline of events highlighted in the documentary 3801 Lancaster: American Tragedy, and when learning of the numerous instances in which Gosnell was reported, we’re left wondering how his reign of terror lasted so long.
How was Gosnell able to injure and murder so many people in an unsanitary facility before he was finally caught?
The grand jury came to one conclusion: eugenics. They said Gosnell did what he did and got away with it for so long because the women were “poor” and “of color” and the infants were “victims without identities.”
Abortion facilities have a long and shameful history of lying to abortion-minded women about the development of their preborn babies.
One post-abortive woman identified as Sue recalls:
The doctor said: “Don’t worry, it’s not formed till after 12 weeks.” Then I saw the Human Body program [on the ABC]. I would not have gone ahead if I’d been told the truth about the formation of the baby.”(1)
46-year-old Chris Dunn has died at Houston Methodist Hospital after the hospital not only refused to diagnose him or offer a prognosis, but also invoked a law that would have allowed the hospital to withdraw life-sustaining treatment and thus cause his death.
Chris was admitted to the hospital in November with a mass on his pancreas. Rather than exploring the cause of his ailment and possible treatment plans, or offering a prognosis of any kind, the hospital instead invoked a draconian Texas law — the only one of its kind in the nation — which allows the hospital to remove a patient from life-sustaining treatment for any reason.
Long time circuit-riding abortionist Michael Roth, who made headlines earlier this fall after police found multiple containers of aborted children along with controlled substances in his car after his involvement in a traffic incident, is the subject of a Michigan Attorney General’s Office complaint charging him with negligence and failure to protect patients’ personal information.
I recently spoke to several classes of Catholic girls about the dignity of the preborn child. I began every class with a video of an abortion survivor and then asked the high school students if they’d ever heard a story like that before. Out of over 100 teen girls, only a few knew abortion survivors existed and only a couple could name a specific survivor.
Late-term abortionist Dr. Marilynn C. Frederiksen testified under oath in the partial-birth abortion trials, explaining why babies are sometimes born alive in late-term abortions. The procedure she is talking about is one in which a poison (usually digoxin) is injected into the fetal heart to kill the baby, and then labor is induced. This is usually done on babies who are too far along to dismember with forceps (in a D&E procedure). She says:
I have been unable in certain cases to actually put a needle into the heart for technical reasons or because the mother is obese or the fetus is in a particularly difficult position to gain access to the heart. When you put these agents not in the heart or near the heart, you can’t guarantee fetal death.
A 46-year-old Texas man is being forced to fight for his right to life after his hospital invoked a Texas law that allows life-sustaining treatment to be removed at the doctor’s discretion without patient consent, and against his will.
