University of Wisconsin faculty object to bill that could ban fetal body parts research

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has a history of fetal tissue and embryonic stem cell research and it is set on keeping that research, despite a bill being considered by the state legislature to ban the use of it. Wisconsin Assembly Bill 305 would “prohibit[] certain sales and uses of fetal body parts derived from an unborn child aborted by an induced abortion… [and] prohibits a person from knowingly providing, receiving, or using, for experimentation, a fetal body part in this state, regardless of whether the provision, receipt, or use is for valuable consideration.”

In response to this,  almost 700 faculty members at UW-Madison signed a letter to the editor of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel denouncing the bill as unethical, among other things…

Remarkable 3-D ultrasound video shows humanity of preborn children

This video from a medical diagnostic center in Kiev, Ukraine,  shows both early and late fetal development and has been viewed more than 1.4 million times on Facebook. The text states, “What are the babies inside mom. Remarkable video! The video cut through a 3 D Ultrasound.”

These are not clumps of cells. They are human beings exhibiting human behavior in the womb:

Video on Planned Parenthood shows connection with IVF and abortion

While the fifth video released by the Center for Medical Progress certainly has provided damaging insight into Planned Parenthood, the full footage–at 5 hours and 45 minutes–contains even more about Planned Parenthood employees and the abortion industry.

At about 2 hours and 41 minutes into the full footage, corresponding with pages 55-56 of the transcript, Melissa Farrell, who is the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discusses working for a facility that “performed abortions in the IVF department.”

What are the psychological consequences of abortion?

The pro-abortion world recently went crazy over a published study that made a rather outstanding claim. According to the study, 95% of women do not regret their abortions. Abortion advocates could not wait to trumpet the results of this study, excitedly proclaiming that this “proved” women don’t ever experience guilt and that post-abortion syndrome does not exist.

But unfortunately for the pro-abortion lobby, the overwhelming majority of scientific literature does not back up the results of the this new study. In fact, the majority of the literature has found that women who undergo abortion do experience negative psychological consequences.

Looking back: Jill Stanek exposed live birth abortions at Illinois hospital

Jill Stanek is a well-known pro-life blogger and activist who first became active in the pro-life movement when she exposed the practice of live birth abortions, which she witnessed while working at her job as a nurse at an Illinois hospital.

Stanek was working as a Labor and Delivery nurse at Christ hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois, when she witnessed babies being aborted alive. Despite its name and affiliation with two Christian churches, late-term abortions were performed at Christ hospital.

New study re-affirms abortion-miscarriage link

sad woman girlStop me if you’ve heard this one: the abortion lobby is lying about abortion’s medical risk—oh, you have? Of course you have; they do that a lot. But since one such lie has been debunked yet again, I’ll go on.

Planned Parenthood claims that “Safe, uncomplicated abortion does not cause problems for future pregnancies such as […] miscarriage.” Its information page on miscarriage makes no mention of abortion as a risk factor. NARAL calls it a “lie” to suggest “a link between abortion and future miscarriages,” declaring “ first-trimester abortions pose virtually no long-term risks of such problems as […] miscarriage.”

Despite these claims, Reuters reports that researchers from Rabin Medical Center in Petach Tiva and Tel Aviv University studied medical records from 13,000 women and found new evidence of such a link….

Abortionists’ deception has put women in danger for decades

Abortionist turned pro-lifer, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, described how patient care was compromised in the abortion clinic he ran because physicians were seeking more money.

Doctors were being paid based on the number of abortions they performed, and:

The pay system inspired incredible situations. Walden [one of the abortionists] told me that when he first started, the practice was that a “senior” doctor with more experience at the clinic would have to confirm the newcomer’s estimate on how far along the pregnancy was. One day he estimated the woman at 16 weeks, and called in a “senior” with a solid reputation outside the clinic who told him, “She’s only 10 weeks. You can do her.”

Walden started to work and soon was in the middle of a treacherous, 16 week abortion that took him an hour and a half, with blood, bone and fetal parts all over the room. Meanwhile the “senior” doctor was running through three women and earning three times the pay while he was tied up.

Walden told me that the old hands pulled this on a lot of the new boys, to tangle them in impossible cases and reduce the competition for fees. On the side, of course, there was the trifling matter that they were putting the women patients in unnecessary danger.

Abby Johnson to Dr. Nucatola: I used to harvest babies’ body parts too

In a graphic and moving article for LifeSiteNews,  former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson writes to Dr. Nucatola, reaching out to her to convert, and admitting that she, too, had harvested fetal tissue for profit.  Dr. Nucatola is the abortionist and medical director of Planned Parenthood who was recently caught describing the harvesting of aborted babies’ organs while sipping wine at a restaurant with undercover pro-lifers, who were secretly taping her every word.

Abby Johnson begins by recounting her vivid memories surrounding the use of dry ice. She confesses that clinic workers used to pack the bodies and organs of the mutilated, aborted babies into the dry ice to ship them to research facilities. Abby describes the trauma of these memories.

Protecting life in the case of ectopic pregnancy

In a 1979 letter, then-Governor Ronald Reagan of California stated, “my position is that interrupting a pregnancy means the taking of a human life. In our Judeo-Christian tradition, that can only be done in self-defense. Therefore, I will agree to an abortion only to protect the life of the prospective mother.”

This could be clarified further: when the mother’s life is in danger, saving her life is the only intention of any medical act. Unlike the purpose of an abortion, ending the baby’s life is not the goal even if it happens incidentally, such as in the case of treating some ectopic pregnancies.

FDA finally acknowledges what we already knew about Essure

The problems associated with Essure, a permanent, non-surgical, irreversible form of birth control have been written about by many— from local to national outlets, to pro-life and pro-abortion media outlets. And these problems certainly do not paint a pretty picture.

Even if a woman on Essure were to have zero problems, the process as a whole doesn’t sound very pleasant. Essure prevents pregnancy through the insertion of metal coils into a woman’s fallopian tubes, which causes her body to grow tissue through them, thus blocking the fallopian tubes. The egg then can not reach the uterus.

If the idea of the insertion of metal coils “not intended to be removed” doesn’t make you uncomfortable, the side effects will. And we’re not talking about your average side effects….

Petition launched to hold embattled Indiana abortionist accountable for violations

While legal action to revoke Indiana abortionist Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s license is pending, he has come under additional scrutiny as he continues performing abortions at the Women’s Pavilion in South Bend.  Years of inspections by the ISDH, Indiana State Department of Health, have repeatedly found serious health code violations, too numerous to ignore, yet there is concern the state may do just that.

In advance of the hearing, Attorney Shawn Sullivan, Executive Director of The Life Center, released the following statement: “For five years or more, Dr. Klopfer has repeatedly demonstrated his contempt for the rules that our State has established for abortion clinics. The law provides that abortionist Ulrich Klopfer’s deliberate and perpetual violations are grounds for this illegal facility to be closed immediately.”

Pioneering doctor reveals the science behind abortion reversals – and the babies saved

Dr. George Delgado recently pioneered a treatment that has many around the nation talking. He discovered a novel, scientifically accurate, and medically proven way to reverse abortions.

The kind of abortion Dr. Delgado (and the doctors on his impressive team) can reverse is commonly known as a medication or medical abortion. It is performed through the use of a combination of pills, almost always in the first trimester of pregnancy.

In the stunning 22-minute video posted below, Dr. Delgado puts to shame the claims of abortion advocates who argue that his treatment is unscientific and deceptive. Dr. Delgado’s team of doctors around the nation have a 60% success rate, when they treat mothers who want to stop a medication abortion.

The team is also there for pregnant women in other capacities, promising to not leave them “stranded or alone,” and to help them find solutions to other pregnancy-related needs. The team also urges women to not think it is too late. If women want a reversal, even if they are told that they cannot stop the procedure, they should call the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline: 877-558-0333.
