Court stops Planned Parenthood from doing surgical abortions by Disney World

Last May, Planned Parenthood of Greater Florida purchased an 8,800 square feet property to conduct their abortion business in Kissimmee, Florida.

In September, LifeNews.com reported that Planned Parenthood got approval from an appeals court to perform abortions.

The initial court battle occurred because deed restrictions did not allow surgeries to be performed without the permission of other owners. Furthermore, zoning regulations for the building did not apply to surgery.

The building owners did not want Planned Parenthood performing surgical abortions there, but unsurprisingly, Planned Parenthood fought to get around the law.

New study shows preemies can survive at earlier ages, but hospital attitude can mean life or death

By Jennifer Popik, J.D., Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethics

babyincubatorVia National Right to Life News Today:

A study published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine demonstrates widespread discriminatory denial of life-preserving medical treatment to premature infants based on fear that if assisted to live they might have disabilities – in defiance of protective federal law. It provided a startling snapshot into the treatment of very premature infants.

Baby at 20 weeks

New study shows many premature babies can survive as early as 22 weeks

Yet another study has proven the tragedy and inhumanity of our nation’s abortion laws. Despite the continual bombardment of claims to the contrary, abortion is barely restricted in the United States. In the huge majority of states, abortion is legal until the very moment of birth.

The ban on partial birth abortion did not end late term abortion; it merely stopped one form of it. Several states have passed “fetal pain laws,” banning abortion when the preborn baby conclusively feels pain. Other states are passing “dismemberment bans,” banning a certain popular form of abortion that literally tears babies apart, limb by limb, piece by piece. Still other states have attempted to pass heartbeat bills, banning abortion once the baby’s heartbeat begins, 22 days after fertilization. (You can watch it here.)

Baby Angel born after doctors kept brain dead mother alive to give birth

Baby Angel Perez was welcomed into the world on April 4, 2015, but the happiness of his birth is complicated by the tragedy that surrounds it. His mother, 22-year-old Karla Perez, suffered a brain bleed 54 days earlier, and was left brain-dead as a result.

After complaining of a severe headache, Perez collapsed on February 8. She was just 22 weeks pregnant, and doctors knew her baby was too young to survive outside the womb.

Shocking: Medical center schedules ‘abortion experiments’ on minors that may cause them to bleed to death

It’s a known fact that D&E abortions are risky for women. Of course, these are the same abortions that rip babies limb from limb in their mothers’ wombs – the same ones that Kansas just banned.

But, far from banning D&E abortions, the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children at the University of Hawaii is planning to conduct experiments on minor girls with D&E abortions. According to Breitbart, here are the requirements for the experimental study:

[The experiment will be conducted on] pregnant girls and women…[who will] participate in second-trimester abortions to measure their bleeding during the operation, with and without antihemorrhagic drugs. According to the Clinical Trials website, run by the National Institutes of Health, participants must be at least 14 years old and 18-24 weeks pregnant.

Yes, 14 years old. A university’s medical center actually thinks it’s a good idea to experiment with letting very young teenage girls possibly bleed out during an abortion.

Mom wakes from coma to find out she’s given birth

Twenty-year-old Sharista Giles was left in a coma after she was injured during a car accident in December. At the time of the accident, Giles was five months pregnant.

Doctors offered her family little hope, and informed them that there was a 90 to 98 percent chance that Giles would never recover. In March, the family made the decision to move Giles to the Harriman Care and Rehabilitation Center.  After months in a coma, Giles woke up.

YouTube pregnancy video: From the first moment in the womb, “a tiny human thrives”

PregnancyChat has posted a beautifully informative video on YouTube that demonstrates the journey of every baby from fertilization to birth.

The video begins by saying:

Only two cells are needed to create a baby…two cells, and a miracle.

It continues, while showing the process of fertilization:

Gently nestled and protected in a mother’s womb, a tiny human thrives.

The 4 1/2 minute video – which has been viewed nearly 1,000,000 times – is composed largely of real-life ultrasound footage of preborn babies from early in their lives until just before birth. The video includes a glorious scene with a mother and her newborn, nestled tightly in her arms for the very first time.

Baby in womb, preborn baby, suck thumb

See 9 months in the womb in this amazing 4 minute video

Have you ever wondered how a baby develops so rapidly and fully in his or her mother’s womb? Well, this astounding short video demonstrates the mind-blowing process for us to witness. It’s a computerized, fast-paced – and accurate – window to the womb.

Here’s the description of the video on YouTube:

Life is truly wonderful! In fact, the development of human life in the womb is just amazing. Did you know that everything about you — including how tall you would be, the color of your eyes, and the color of your skin– was all determined at the time of fertilization? Month-by-month you grew in the safety and comfort of your mother’s womb until the big day of your birth finally arrived!

“Life in the Womb” is a fascinating video that gives us the story of the unborn child, and demonstrates the fetus development in the Uterus.

The day I died…with my unborn daughter still in my body

When I was pregnant with my first child I researched doctors and hospitals, knowing that not all hospitals and their doctors look upon unborn children as equally human and valuable as their mothers. I intentionally drove 25 minutes out of my way to see a pro-life OB/GYN and deliver at a hospital that I knew valued life at all stages.

Upon waking after nearly dying during childbirth, I saw how important that decision was in my life, and that of my child.

Viral photo of baby in amniotic sac proves humanity of the preborn

A few news sources have recently reported an extremely rare occurrence: a baby, delivered by emergency caesarean section at 26 weeks, with his amniotic sac still completely intact around his tiny body.

According to reports, this is something so rare that many OB-GYNs will never see it in their careers. In roughly one in every 80,000 births is the baby born with a portion of the amniotic sac, let alone the sac fully intact.

From this amazing photo of baby Silas Johnson, it’s easy to see his hands, feet, head, and little torso, which makes it more horrific to realize that in many states, it’s perfectly legal to rip him limb from limb in the womb through a late-term abortion procedure. According to the Guttmacher Institute, eight states have no gestational limits on abortion, meaning these states allow abortions at 26 weeks – and beyond.

Nurse who assisted in abortions now pro-life, opposes abortion

A nurse identified only as “Julia” talked about her experience as a nurse at a teaching hospital that did abortions. Her story appears at Priests for Life. She says:

20 weeks
20 weeks

I was a nurse practicing in North Carolina.  I worked on a Gynecology/tumor unit at a teaching hospital. The unit included 4 prostaglandin abortion beds.  The babies who were aborted were between 18-20wks of age.  Most women were young, but occasionally there were patients whose babies had life threatening defects.  I assisted the doctor in the initial placement of the prostaglandin.  Then the women were left on the floor to deliver.

Mississippi’s restrictive abortion law lands at Supreme Court for review

A Mississippi abortion law is the latest to arrive at the Supreme Court. Mississippi has asked the high court to review the decision of a federal district court that blocked a law from going into effect; that law requires physicians performing abortions to have admitting privileges in local hospitals.

Common in many states, the law helps ensure women’s safety by assuring them of quick hospital care should something go wrong during the abortion. But abortion advocates say it’s a ploy by pro-lifers to disguise outlawing abortions in the guise of safety.
