State legislator condemned for saying Planned Parenthood ‘rips its victims to shreds,’ but it’s true

Last week, a number of New Hampshire fourth-graders went to visit their state legislature. They had designed a bill which would have named the red-tailed hawk as the state raptor.

The bill went down in defeat, and the media have been right to condemn the legislators who laughed at the bill and seemed to ridicule the children’s idea. This is no way to encourage young citizens to participate in a free and interactive government.

However, the media have also appeared to roundly condemn a comment from Representative Warren Groen:

The hawk “grasps them with its talons then uses its razor-sharp beak to basically tear it apart limb by limb,” State Rep. Warren Groen (R) said on the House floor as the class of 10-year-old students watched from the gallery. “And I guess the shame about making this a state bird is it would serve as a much better mascot for Planned Parenthood.”

Waiting in abortion clinic, here’s why she changed her mind

Kimberly Henderson became a viral Internet star when she posted a YouTube video singing “How Will I Know” to her baby daughter, Vaida. Kimberly shares that doctors thought Vaida was deaf as a small baby, so Kimberly sang to her all the time.

Vaida is Kimberly’s youngest daughter, but the young mother also has three other children. Her eldest daughter, who she became pregnant with at 16, inspired Kimberly’s latest hit, “Tiny Hearts.”

In “Tiny Hearts,” Kimberly shares part of her story as a young mom:

Sometimes I feel like my whole world is crashing down
While all my friends are being young and dumb and playing around
They’re out all night living a life that I just had to let go
I watch you sleep right next to me
It’s you and me on our own
Sometimes I feel there’s a world out there I’ll never know

But I know who I am
Yeah I know who I am
Tiny hearts are in my hands

On Facebook, Kimberly posted her abortion story about her daughter, Vaida. She is an incredible example of a woman who knew she didn’t need to sacrifice the lives of her children to succeed at life.

New video details the moments stolen by abortion

What is a preborn baby? If you ask someone working at NARAL or Planned Parenthood, they’ll say that it’s just a clump of cells, a product of conception, or some other similarly dehumanizing term to deny the preborn child his humanity.

If you ask just about any other person what is growing in a pregnant woman’s womb, the answer is almost always simple and immediate: a baby. The lives of the preborn killed by abortion were stolen from children who had beating hearts, faces, and futures.

Is another Alabama abortion clinic operating without a license? Pro-life leaders call for investigation

Selma, AL is famous for its connection to the civil rights marches in 1965, but now it may be infamous for being the latest city in the Heart of Dixie to illegally operate an abortion clinic. A press conference  at 10:30 Wednesday morning, led by a host of pro-life leaders, will call for an investigation into the Central Alabama Women’s Clinic which, they say, is operating without a legal license.

The abortion facility is located at 1013 Medical Center Pkwy in Selma, and the press conference will be held across the street. Leaders say they have tried for nearly a year to ask for an investigation of the facility, and they have received no response, so they are calling media attention to it.

The facility, they say, meets the legal definition of an abortion clinic which requires private abortion practices to be licensed by the state if they perform more than nine abortions per month.

“Grandma” shows women on a road trip begging for abortion money

Bonding over abortion is the heart and soul of the new film Grandma, starring Lily Tomlin, which is receiving buzz after when it premiered Friday at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. The film from Paul Weitz is what Variety‘s review notes is  partly a “breezy family comedy about mothers, daughters and abortions.”

Tomlin’s character, Elle, is a former professor and poet who, after having a bad day when she breaks up with her girlfriend, “rediscovers her softer side when her granddaughter, unexpectedly pregnant while in high school, comes to her for help. The two women embark on a mission to find funds for the teenager.”

The mission on which they embark is a road trip across Los Angeles to get the $630 they need for Sage, Elle’s granddaughter, to have an abortion. Sage doesn’t doesn’t want her mean old mom to know, but Elle just paid off her credit cards and tore them up, so their option is to drive around asking people for abortion money.

McDonald’s Super Bowl ad features girl with Down syndrome

In the midst of the trashy ads that tend to fill TV screens on Super Bowl Sunday, a few beautiful ones also make their appearance.

One of the most beautiful ads this year comes from McDonald’s. The burger corporation included Grace Ramsburg, an eight-year-old with Down syndrome, in its one-minute spot “Pay With Lovin.'”

Grace’s mom is thrilled that her daughter’s face will be seen by millions throughout the nation tomorrow. And indeed, the more often people are able to truly see the personality and spirit of people with Down syndrome, the more they realize their intrinsic beauty.

“There’s still misunderstanding and there’s still judgement,” Holly Ramsburg said of having a daughter with Down syndrome. “I feel like everyday when we go out and we’re able to get her face out there and get her personality out there it is wonderful.”

Pampers releases new ad celebrating babies – born and preborn

This month, Pampers released a new ad: “A Newborn Journey of Firsts.” Pampers has been known in the past for its beautiful, visually stirring ads that broadcast a pro-life message. A previous ad called babies miracles who “deserve protection” and referred to a baby on an ultrasound screen as a “he” instead of an “it.”

This time, Pampers’s ad — which has already received over 860,000 views on YouTube — opens as a mother lovingly caresses her pregnant belly. The scene switches to an incredible ultrasound where a baby is moving in the womb and, as Pampers puts it, is giving her “first hello.”

CNN prints “I’m a feminist and I’m against abortion”

Yesterday, on the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, CNN printed an op-ed by attorney Erika Bachiochi. She unwaveringly declared the truth that women can be pro-woman and pro-child (thus, pro-life) at the same time.

Ms. Bachiochi argues that abortion lays the sole responsibility for the life – or death – of a child at the feet of women. And, instead of making women equal, it only serves to demonstrate that they are treated anything but equal in abortion.

Abortion expects nothing more of men, nothing more of medicine, and nothing more of society at large. Abortion betrays women by having us believe that we must become like men — that is, not pregnant — to achieve parity with them, professionally, socially, educationally. And if we are poor, overwhelmed or abandoned by the child’s father, or if medical expenses would be too great for us or for our child, social “responsibility” requires us to rid ourselves of our own offspring.

Writer’s piece is insensitive not only to the faithful, but to rape victims

Just before Christmas, Salon reposted a piece titled “Why rape is so intrinsic to religion,” which was authored by Valerie Tarico and appeared first on Alternet, a site Salon claims it is “proud to feature content from.”

Many took to decrying the ridiculousness of the article. The Alternet version asks:

Stories like the virgin birth lack freely given female consent. Why don’t they bother us more?

Perhaps they “don’t … bother us more” because to view such stories, like Tarico does, as “rapey” is what’s really bothersome. To claim that Mary was raped is incorrect, especially considering that since Mary was a virgin, no sexual intercourse was forced upon her.

The actual Bible passage, Luke 1: 26-35, is quite beautiful and inspirational, as the angel Gabriel greets Mary and tells her that she is “highly favored.”

Pro-life OB/GYNs raise awareness of advances in abortion reversal process

Did you know that the effects of the abortion pill can be reversed for women and their babies? Many women have reported changing their minds about the termination of their preborn child after ingesting the first dose of the abortion pill. Thanks to pioneering research by Dr. George Delgado and his colleagues, the abortion reversal success rate is high and rising.

In an older article, we explained how the chemical abortion process works. It’s important to understand the process in order to understand how it can be reversed:

But Steven Crowder has released a heart-wrenching new video that is resonating with thousands of people exposing the tragedy of the special needs abortion holocaust.
