20130221 LifeNews Radio Aborting Disabled-Carhart Investigation-Abstinence Redefined-Washington Abortion Mandate


As details of the woman who died an abortion-related death come forward, attention is being brought to the issue of women pressured to abort disabled babies.  Jennifer Morbelli and her husband were looking forward to the birth of their baby girl when doctors discovered problems with the baby’s brain.  The couple traveled from New York to the late-term abortion clinic of LeRoy Carhart in Maryland. An autopsy released shows the 33 year old teacher died of an amniotic embolism and widespread coagulation.

Other aspects of a state investigation include personal patient documents and other waste that may have been disposed of illegally.  Some of the documents and references to protocols seem to call into question the care received at Carhart’s clinic.  Tragically adding suspicions, some former employees of the abortionist say he frequently broke state health and medical laws in his Nebraska abortion business.

New curriculum touted by Planned Parenthood uses an interesting definition of abstinence.  Abstinence in this curriculum refers not to abstinence but strictly to unprotected sex.
And a vote is scheduled in the Washington State House to require all insurance policies covering maternity to also pay for abortions.  Debate begins at 9 AM Friday in Olympia.

0peration Rescue Says HHS Secretary May Hinder Botched Abortion Death Investigation, Rubio Introduces Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, Correlation between Marital Sex and Pro-Abortion Opinion, 11% Use Hormone Overdose Morning after Pill

Former Kansas Governor and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius may have significant ties to late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart.  As governor, Operation Rescue says she successfully turned back laws to regulate businesses like Dr. Carhart’s Kansas operations.  They are concerned that she may do the same with the investigation into the death of Jennifer McKenna Morbelli.  In related news, Operation Rescue has found evidence that Morbelli may have been told not to visit an emergency room.

Earlier this week, in his counter to the state of the union address by President Obama, Senator Marco Rubio articulated how the human person is an asset to a nation.  He has now gone a step further, introducing to the U.S. Senate the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act that would stop secret interstate abortions on teenagers, notifying parents and criminalizing the transport of a minor across state lines to evade state parental notification laws.

In other news, A new survey makes a direct correlation between someone’s view regarding premarital sex and whether or not they are pro-abortion.  And a new report from the CDC finds more women are using the radical hormone overdose known as the morning after pill; now about 11% of all women have used it.

Tragic Death of New York Teacher, Media Outlets Ignore Late-Term Abortion Death, Washington State May Be Turning Tide on Abortion

20130211 LifeNews Radio Tragic Death-Media Ignores-Washington State Bills

A 29-year-old woman and her husband discovered that their pre-born child was suffering some anomalies, so they traveled to the clinic of Leroy Carhart near Washington DC and four days later both mother and child were dead.  Family members told the hospital that abortionist Doctor Carhart failed to respond to their urgent phone calls.  Troy Newman of Operation Rescue said, “The avoidable death of this young woman dramatically illustrates the dangers of third trimester abortions that are done outside of the safety of obstetrical standards.” The mother was a kindergarten teacher from New York State.  Details are at LifeNews–dot–com.

Major media outlets are avoiding not only the tragic details of this story, but the apparently dangerous practice of late-term abortions.  Despite offering a news conference in the Washington DC area detailing the situation, only one newspaper sent a reporter to get the news. There was… no Washington Post, Baltimore Sun, and no coverage from the networks or AP.

From the state was first to legalize abortion in the US, comes news that activists may be turning the tide.  While one bill lingers near death in Washington State that would force all maternity health care coverage plans to also pay for abortion, another bill requiring parental notification before abortion is bringing large pro-life crowds to the state capital in Olympia in support of the pro-life measure.

February 1st Twitter Censors Black Pro-Lifers, Arkansas Senate Passes Abortion Ban-Injunction against HHS Mandate, 491 Babies from Failed Abortions Left to Die

A coalition of African-American pro-life activists have had their Twitter account suspended after firing off tweets challenging the NAACP over its position favoring abortion.  Leading black pro-life advocates have been planning to protest the NAACP’s pro-abortion activism at its 44th Image Awards Show.

The Arkansas Senate passed a bill on to that state’s house that would ban virtually all abortions by making any abortion illegal when the baby has a heartbeat.  States are allowed to restrict abortion within certain guidelines.  This law would test those guidelines.

Another of the lawsuits against the HHS contraceptive-abortifacient drug mandate has yielded a preliminary injunction against the mandate on behalf of a family-run business.  The significance of the injunction is that it is the second time the seventh circuit Court of Appeals has found that there is a reasonable likelihood that plaintiffs will prevail in court with their case against the mandate.

When an abortion fails, it fails because the child is delivered.  Members of the Canadian Parliament are calling a probe into figures we released at life  In November, we reported on Statistics Canada figures showing nearly 500 children were abandoned to die following failed abortions in Canada.


January 30, 2013 LifeNews Radio: Kerry Confirmed, Lack of Coverage of March for Life, Prayer and Fasting Friday, Vending Morning After Pill, Growing Human Hearts from Stem Cells, Pushing Depressed Oregon Patient into Suicide

TEXT:Senator John Kerry will replace outgoing pro-abortion Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  All but Senators Cruz and Cornyn of Texas and Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma voted to confirm Kerry.

Maybe you know about the famous college football player who was duped into believing that a girl on the Internet liked him and how, responding to this ongoing hoax, the football player was tragically hurt by her supposed death.  And by now you’re wondering why a newscast on the life issue is telling you about this.  The Media Research Center analyzed the coverage of this story and of the March for Life and found that the hoax got over 500 times the coverage that half a million citizens received for marching on the nation’s capital.

Other stories you’ll find at… The Obama administration has approved the morning after pill to be dispensed through a vending machine to college students at a Pennsylvania university.  The Texas Heart Institute is literally growing human hearts using adult stem cells.  And there is the story of a pro-life Oregon doctor who lost one of his patients when another doctor-operating under Oregon law- pushed the patient, who was suffering from depression, into the use of barbiturates to commit suicide.

January 22, 2012 President Obama Record on Abortion, Inaugural Motorcade Confronts Graphic Images, Closed Abortion Clinics, Botched Abortion, Irish Pro-Life Rally

On the occasion of the president’s inauguration to a second term, pro-life groups say President Obama brings a stark contrast to a second term: a large pro-abortion record and a small approval rating.  Gallup polling finds the president’s first-term approval rating is the lowest of any post-World War II president.

The president’s motorcade was forced to confront pictures of babies victimized by abortion.  The exposure of graphic images was arranged by Created Equal.

On the 40th anniversary of the Roe V Wade decision legalizing all abortion, pro-lifers can celebrate the closure of 1500 abortion clinics over the past 22 years.  There were nearly 2200 abortion clinics in 1991; now there are less than 700 and that number is falling.

Nevertheless, a St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion business had its fourth botched abortion in recent weeks.  As pro-life advocates tried to document the injuries, clinic staffers attempted to conceal matters.

Over the weekend, what has been billed as the largest pro-life rally in the history of Ireland took place as more than 30,000 pro-life people gathered to hold political leaders accountable for pledging to oppose abortion.
