20130322 LifeNews Radio Gosnell Arguments Ineptitude- HHS Unprecedented Violation-Teacher Booted-Vascular Disease Risk-5 Texas Clinics
The questioning in the Gosnell murder trial is pointing to inconsistent arguments for abortion. With a re-created abortion clinic displayed before jurors’ eyes, the court is witnessing seemingly every question about the beginning of life and viability and the rights of vulnerable babies and the care of mothers. Thursday, an anesthesiologist testified that the anesthesia given to one woman who died was sufficient to stop her breathing and put her into a coma.
The more you look at the HHS mandate, the more you find tremendous problems. The nation’s Catholic bishops took a new comprehensive look at the mandate and their General Counsel says new revisions of the contraceptive mandate are an “unprecedented violation of religious liberty” and must be changed.
In other news, a courageous Portland schoolteacher was given the boot from Benson high school. Bill Diss has both attained great notoriety for his teaching skill and has been given years of grief for his personal pro-life activism in the Rose City. A new study shows abortion can lead to risk of heart disease and stroke. And 37 of 42 abortion clinics in Texas would close under a new bill that seeks to apply minimum standards to such surgical facilities.

20130306 LifeNews Radio Rights Act-Gosnell Horror-Abortion Closings-Arkansas Veto Override
Members of Congress, with the backing of major pro-life groups, are introduced the Health Care Conscience Rights Act, to stop the Obama administration’s assault on pro-life religious freedom via the HHS mandate. This bold act may be the last chance for Congress to take action to mitigate the conscience problems associated with President Barack Obama’s contraceptive and abortifacient mandate.
Going through the grand jury report for the murder trial of Kermit Gosnell reads like a horror movie. Some of the more mundane items: investigators say Gosnell distributed or wrote prescriptions for addictive drugs, something that would’ve garnered Gosnell hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Late-term abortions, which often failed and delivered premature but live births presented the situations and actions which ultimately led to the murder charges against the abortionist.
In other news, two more abortion centers have closed in Michigan after charges of illegal disposal and an abortion practitioner being sued for the death of a woman in a failed abortion. And the Arkansas 12 week abortion ban continues to make news as that state’s Senate has voted to override their governor’s veto. Some people in pro-life circles fear the Arkansas ban, if rejected by courts, could entrench Roe V Wade.

20130305 LifeNews Radio Gosnell Murder Case-Rights Act-HHS Probing Loophole-Abortion Breast Cancer
The complicated, gruesome case of Kermit Gosnell got underway in Philadelphia Monday with three jurors being selected. While there are rumors of Gosnell trying to negotiate a better deal with prosecutors, he faces eight murder counts. The story is loaded with tragic details of abortions botched, squalid conditions in his clinic, and multiple defendants who worked with Gosnell, some of whom had no medical background.
Members of Congress are working on a new major bill to stop the White House assault on pro-life religious freedom under the HHS mandate. The Health Care Conscience Rights Act would take the focus off Kathleen Sibelius for drafting the rules creating the mandate and put them on legislators who vote for or against this new bill.
The federal budget sequester seemingly has had no effect on Health and Human Services. On the first afternoon of the President’s doomsday, the agency was so productive it pumped out more than 700 new pages of ObamaCare regulations. Buried in those pages is a plan designed to directly fund abortion using the laws of individual states to circumvent the Hyde amendment. And another story at LifeNews dot com provides another likely link between abortion and a 90% increase in breast cancer.

20130222 LifeNews Radio Arkansas Abortion Ban-Friend of Court Brief-Fetal Brain Signals
It may be true that no law may fix the abortion problem, but one of the most interesting efforts has just passed the Arkansas state legislature in two bills that would ban abortions at the point when a unborn child’s heart starts to beat, typically before even the mother knows she’s pregnant. The bill has been presented to Governor Mike Beebe, who has yet to say what he plans to do.
Nearly a dozen members of Congress, 11 groups and a state’s attorney general filed friend-of-the-court briefs supporting Hobby Lobby Stores’ challenge to the HHS mandate. Chief Counsel for the Becket Fund Kyle Duncan says that “While any brief by sitting members of Congress is significant, this one comes from members who originally supported the federal civil rights law—the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993—which is at the heart of the mandate challenges.”
Researchers at Wayne State University in Michigan are mapping, for the first time ever, fetal brain signals. Besides showing human function and further displaying the humanity of unborn children, the prevention and treatment of brain disorders like autism or dyslexia may be on the horizon.
