Georgia to face doctor-prescribed suicide

NORCROSS, Ga., Dec. 10, 2014/Christian Newswire --

Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) Director of Bioethics, Bethany Walker, said today she is deeply concerned about a push to adopt a doctor-prescribed suicide law in Georgia.

"Georgia is overwhelmingly pro-life," Walker said. "And that support includes protecting the elderly, disabled and terminally ill, as well as pre-born children.

"Communicating to those that receive a negative diagnosis that dying with dignity means suicide forces a wrongful burden on the patient to seek suicide rather than healing or care while clearly going against the will of most Georgians."

As evidence, Walker noted that the Georgia Legislature successfully passed an anti-assisted suicide law in 2012.

Walker made the announcement in response to a report that a group called "Compassion and Choices," formerly the Hemlock Society, plans to introduce so-called "death with dignity" legislation in Georgia in 2015.

"There's nothing dignified about the despair that someone experiences if they think taking their life is their only option," Walker said. "A person should never feel that she will lose her value or dignity because of disease, illness, or dependency."

Oregon, the first state to pass doctor-prescribed suicide, has reported that 49% of people wanting to kill themselves included "not wanting to be a burden to their family members" as a reason.

There is growing pressure to encourage the elderly, terminally ill and disabled to simply do their duty and stop burdening society. The focus is continually expanding to save society the time and expense of caring for the vulnerable people.

"A death with dignity isn't doctor-prescribed suicide but affirming the value and humanity of that person through increased support and care not less," Walker said.

Especially when modern palliative care can provide some of the most efficient pain management and care methods available while enabling terminally ill persons to die naturally at home with their loved ones with true dignity.

Walker pledged GRTL's total commitment to defeat such legislation and encouraged all pro-life supporters to contact their state representatives to stand for the truth that no illness can rob someone of their value or their dignity.

Pro-life, pro-choice groups agree in pregnancy case

WASHINGTON (BP)/December 5, 2014 --

The U.S. Supreme Court has the uncommon opportunity to please both pro-life and pro-choice advocates at the same time.

The justices struggled with the meaning of a federal law barring discrimination against pregnant workers during oral arguments Dec. 3 in a case that has united representatives of both sides of the abortion debate. The protection of mothers in the workplace has brought together at least this time those who disagree on abortion rights, including such pro-life organizations as the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), Americans United for Life (AUL) and Bethany Christian Services with such pro-choice advocates as the ACLU, National Education Association and the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.

These organizations urged the justices in various friend-of-the-court briefs to find that United Parcel Service (UPS) violated a 1978 law, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), in its refusal to allow Peggy Young to take on lighter duty during her pregnancy. Young sued UPS in response to a policy by the package delivery company that resulted in her taking unpaid leave and losing her medical coverage while pregnant.

Supporters of Young's position contended in pre-argument statements for the rights of pregnant employees.

"Being pro-life means standing both with unborn children and with their mothers," ERLC President Russell Moore said. "Pregnant women should not have to decide between loving their babies, caring for their health and making a living."

Charmaine Yoest, AUL's president, said, "Pro-life and pro-abortion advocates agree: This case is about protecting pregnant mothers from employment discrimination. Women should not suffer physical hardship at work or lose their jobs because they are having a baby. Most especially, [they] should not be refused the same accommodation offered others with similar work challenges."

Lenora Lapidus, director of the ACLU's Women's Rights Project, said, "Employers and courts nationwide still aren't getting the message that the same temporary accommodations provided to injured workers must be provided to pregnant workers. The Supreme Court must make it clear that this type of discrimination is unlawful and that no woman should have to choose between her job and a healthy pregnancy."

For the pro-life organizations, however, the case certainly has an abortion component.

Ovide Lamontagne, AUL's general counsel, told Baptist Press it is important to understand "the policy behind the Pregnancy Discrimination Act isn't just the workplace but it's also a public statement to support women so they make the decision to keep their children, not to have an abortion."

"If women aren't given the kind of protection in the workplace that the Pregnancy Discrimination Act gives them, they're more likely to feel like they have no other choice in order to keep their jobs, in order to preserve their economic status than to seek an abortion," said Lamontagne, who attended the oral arguments....

Missing 911 call: Ambulance rushes abortion patient from shoddy Florida clinic

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 5, 2014/Christian Newswire --

Video shot by pro-life activists on the scene at the Florida Women's Center abortion facility in Jacksonville, FL, shows dramatic footage of a sobbing abortion patient being loaded into an awaiting ambulance while the injured patient's friend stood nearby crying and distraught.

The incident occurred on September 4, 2014, at an abortion clinic owned and operated by abortionist Patrick J. Kelly. Just five weeks before, state inspectors cited him - ironically - for failing to provide his staff with adequate training in medical emergencies.

"Given the demeanor of everyone in that video, that patient's injuries appeared to be quite serious. We don't know just how serious or if she even survived," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "Every medical emergency we are able to document represents dozens more that happen outside the presence of pro-life activists. Whatever happened to the woman in the video, has probably happened to others."

Kelly owns, operates, and acts as the administrator for the Florida Women's Center according to three deficiency reports obtained by Operation Rescue. The reports were based on facility inspections that took place between April 10, 2009, and July 29, 2014.

In fact, Kelly was cited in all three deficiency reports for failing to provide adequate training for his staff in the areas of safety, infection control, and incident reporting.

During a 2011 inspection, Kelly made absurd excuses for not properly training his staff in incident reporting procedures, raising questions about whether incidents were ever reported.

"Physician revealed that the facility has not had any incidents to report therefore there was no need for staff training," an inspector noted.

During a 2014 inspection, Kelly insisted that his staff was trained, but could produce no evidence to substantiate his claim.

Allison Aranda, an attorney with Life Legal Defense Foundation, which works closely with Operation Rescue reports she attempted to obtain the public records of the 911 call in order to learn more about September's medical emergency. However, her request was not met by authorities, who told her that all the records for that day had somehow been erased.

Aranda told Operation Rescue that Life Legal Defense Foundation will be filing a complaint against Kelly with the Florida Board of Medicine.

"Kelly is a shoddy provider that has been fined and repeatedly has refused to adequately train his staff. Perhaps that contributed to the emergency hospitalization of this patient in September. In any case, traditional discipline appears to have little effect on him. We can only expect more incident like this until Kelly is banished from the practice of medicine for good," said Newman.

7th Circuit to hear Christian colleges' case against abortion-pill mandate

Tuesday, December 02, 2014/CHICAGO --

Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Gregory S. Baylor will be available for media interviews immediately following his oral argument Wednesday before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit on behalf of Grace College and Seminary in Indiana and Biola University in California, both of which filed suit in 2012 against the Obama administration's abortion-pill mandate.

The Department of Health and Human Services mandate forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide access, through their health insurance plans, to abortion-inducing drugs and devices under threat of heavy financial penalties through the IRS.

"All Americans should oppose unjust laws that force people - under threat of punishment - to give up their fundamental freedoms and act contrary to their beliefs," said Baylor. "These schools are no different. They simply want to abide by the Christian faith they espouse and teach. The government should not punish people of faith for making decisions consistent with that faith."

Last year, a federal district court suspended enforcement of the mandate against the two schools. The administration appealed that decision to the 7th Circuit.

'Webcam' abortions put Planned Parenthood profits ahead of women's health

Tuesday, November 25, 2014/DES MOINES, Iowa/Alliance Defending Freedom --

Alliance Defending Freedom submitted a friend-of-the-court brief Tuesday to the Iowa Supreme Court on behalf of pro-life advocates in support of an Iowa Board of Medicine ban on "webcam" abortions.

After a trial court upheld the ban on the practice, in which women are provided with abortion-inducing drugs without any in-person examination by a licensed physician, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland appealed the decision to Iowa's high court. Sixteen other states have enacted similar bans.

"Planned Parenthood and other abortionists must be held to basic medical standards of care, and little is more basic than an in-person examination by a physician before a procedure that poses serious health risks," said ADF Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton. "The court was right to uphold the Iowa Board of Medicine's rule, which requires a licensed professional to personally meet with women who want to undergo this potentially life-threatening procedure. The health and safety of mothers is more important that the profits Planned Parenthood obtains through its 'webcam' abortion scheme."

ADF submitted the brief in Planned Parenthood of the Heartland v. Iowa Board of Medicine on behalf of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists; Donna J. Harrison, M.D.; Iowa Right to Life; and Susan Thayer, a former director of an Iowa Planned Parenthood facility who resigned her position rather than perform "webcam" abortions. ADF attorneys also represent Thayer in a separate lawsuit against Planned Parenthood of the Heartland that accuses the abortion giant of massive healthcare fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars.

"Contrary to Planned Parenthood's claims, medication abortions involve substantial health and safety risks to women - even greater risks than do surgical abortions. It is necessary and appropriate that the Board of Medicine regulate these risks and establish a minimum standard of care," said ADF Litigation Counsel Natalie Decker.

"The largest and most accurate study of medication abortions was published in 2009. It consists of a review of medical records from 22,368 women who underwent medication abortions...compared with 20,251 women who underwent surgical abortions," the ADF brief explains. "This study concluded that the 'overall incidence of adverse events was fourfold higher' in medication abortions than in surgical abortions. These higher frequency 'adverse events,' or risks, included hemorrhaging, incomplete abortions, surgical re-evacuation, and injuries requiring post-abortion operative treatment."

"No matter where people stand on abortion, everyone should agree that Planned Parenthood should not get a pass on abiding by established medical protocols," said ADF Senior Counsel Steven H. Aden. "Planned Parenthood's main concern should be the health and safety of women, not its bottom line. We hope the Iowa Supreme Court will uphold the trial court's decision."

Pro-assisted suicide Vermont legislative leaders lose seats in 2014 midterms

WI Right to Life/November 24,2014 --

"It has not been widely published, but Vermont proponents of the law to allow doctor-prescribed suicide (Act 39) were almost defeated or soundly defeated in the November 2014 elections," stated Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life.

  • Incumbent Governor Peter Shumlin made passage of the Vermont law to legalize doctor-prescribed suicide one of his four top priorities when he ran for Governor in 2012. Act 39 was enacted in 2013 with his strong support. In his 2014 re-election race, Shumlin was expected to easily defeat his Republican opponent -- a political unknown who got a late start, had little funding and had never run for public office. Shumlin won by just a few thousand votes and appears unlikely to remain as Chair of the Democrat Governors Association.

    Representative Linda Waite-Simpson led the fight in the House for passage of Act 39, publicly stating she was "doing this for my Dad who was a member of the Hemlock Society." Compassion and Choices, the national leader pushing for legalization of euthanasia and doctor-prescribed suicide, hired Waite-Simpson as its Executive Director while she continued to keep her House seat. Her leadership on Act 39 was a campaign issue and Waite-Simpson came in 4th in a two-seat district.

    Representative Cindy Weed was the only member in her county to vote in favor of Act 39 and her vote was also a campaign issue. Weed lost 55% to 45% to an opponent of Act 39.

    •The Patient Choices Vermont PAC attempted to defeat sitting Vermont Lt. Governor, Phil Scott, who broke two tie votes against Act 39 in the Senate. Scott delivered a crushing defeat to his opponent.

"We are buoyed by these election results which send a strong signal that support for killing a patient rather than caring for them is not a winning issue with the public, even in a state like Vermont. And, it shouldn't be," continued Weininger. "Public education is key to informing the public that we must maintain the goal of caring for a patient until his or her natural death, rather than allowing death to occur by lethal ingestion of drugs."

ADF argues govt shouldn't force Christian pharmacists to dispense abortion-inducing drugs

November 19, 2014/PORTLAND, OR --

Kristen K. Waggoner, lead counsel representing a pharmacy owner and two pharmacists opposed to Washington state regulations that would force them to dispense drugs that can terminate human life after conception, will be available for media interviews Thursday following oral arguments at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

"No one should be forced to choose between their religious convictions and their family-owned businesses and livelihoods. This choice is neither necessary nor constitutional," said Waggoner, senior vice president of legal services for Alliance Defending Freedom and counsel with Seattle-based Ellis, Li & McKinstry PLLC. "The premier medical and pharmaceutical associations all support the right of a provider to refer patients. No other state has a law this extreme, and the district court noted that these drugs are widely accessible throughout the state."

After a 12-day trial that concluded in 2012, a federal district court in Washington suspended the state's regulations. The ruling permitted the two pharmacists, Margo Thelen and Rhonda Mesler, and the owners of Ralph's Thriftway in Olympia to continue to refer customers rather than sell the drugs Plan B and ella.

The district court found that the state adopted its new regulations "primarily (if not solely)" to ban religiously motivated referrals while the state, at the same time, permits pharmacies to refrain from stocking and delivering drugs for "almost unlimited" business, economic, and convenience reasons. The state and attorneys from Planned Parenthood and Legal Voice appealed the decision to the 9th Circuit....

3rd Circuit to hear Christian college's case against abortion-pill mandate

Tuesday, November 18, 2014/PHILADELPHIA --

Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Gregory S. Baylor will be available for media interviews immediately following his oral argument Wednesday before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit on behalf of Pennsylvania's Geneva College, which filed suit in 2012 against the Obama administration's abortion-pill mandate.

The Department of Health and Human Services mandate forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide access, through their health insurance plans, to abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy financial penalties through the IRS.

"All Americans should oppose unjust laws that force people - under threat of punishment - to give up their fundamental freedoms and act contrary to their beliefs," said Baylor. "Geneva College is no different. It simply wants to abide by the Christian faith it espouses and teaches. The government should not punish people of faith for making decisions consistent with that faith."

Last year, a federal district court suspended enforcement of the mandate against Geneva College's employee and student health plans. The administration appealed those decisions to the 3rd Circuit, which consolidated the case, Geneva College v. Burwell, with two other similar cases.

New Jersey Assembly votes to legalize doctor-prescribed suicide

NRLC/WASHINGTON/November 13 -- The New Jersey Assembly today voted to legalize doctor-prescribed suicide in the state. The so-called "Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act" passed the Assembly 41-31 and now goes to the state Senate for consideration. Governor Chris Christie has previously stated he opposed efforts to legalize doctor-prescribed suicide in New Jersey.

"Today's vote represents another instance of society turning its back on the medically vulnerable who are at risk because they are either depressed or worried about what their future holds," said Burke Balch, J.D., director of National Right to Life's Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethics. "Contrary to what we're told by assisted suicide advocates, these laws do not offer a patient 'dignity,' but only abandonment from health care workers and family who are supposed to be caring for patients and loved ones."

While doctor-prescribed suicide is against the law in nearly every state, Oregon, Washington, and Vermont have laws that authorize the practice under certain circumstances. (Additionally, the Supreme Court of Montana interpreted its law to make "consent" of the victim a defense in cases of homicide. A lower court judge in New Mexico struck its existing protective law. The New Mexico case is currently being appealed.)

Advocates promote these dangerous laws, which are riddled with legal problems surrounding enforcement. In the states where doctor-prescribed suicide is legal and records are kept, most people seek suicide not because they are experiencing pain from illness, but because they feel like they are becoming a "burden" or losing autonomy. The "right to die" rapidly becomes a "duty to die."

For more information about doctor-prescribed suicide, the Powell Center for Medical Ethics published a four-part study, "Why We Shouldn't Legalize Assisting Suicide," which can be found here: www.nrlc.org/medethics/directkilling.

Will court force March for Life to pay for abortion pill coverage?

Alliance Defending Freedom/November 5, 2014 --

Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman will be available for media interviews immediately following his oral argument in federal court Wednesday on behalf of March for Life in its lawsuit against the Obama administration's abortion-pill mandate. Bowman will argue in favor of March for Life's request for a permanent injunction against the mandate.

March for Life, the pro-life organization that holds its well-known annual march in Washington, D.C., is challenging the mandate, which forces employers, regardless of their moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy financial penalties through the IRS.

"Pro-life organizations must be free to operate according to the beliefs they espouse," said Bowman. "March for Life was founded to oppose the tragedy of abortion - the very thing the government is forcing the organization to provide through its health insurance plan. The government cannot selectively punish organizations that wish to abide by their beliefs."

March for Life is a non-profit pro-life organization founded in 1973 following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision legalizing abortion in Roe v. Wade. Every year in January, March for Life holds a peaceful march to the U.S. Supreme Court and Capitol Hill to mark the decision until it is overturned.

The organization's sincere moral beliefs on abortion forbid it from furthering abortion through health insurance coverage it offers to its employees, including by hormonal birth-control items it believes can endanger early embryos. March for Life's beliefs are based on morality and science, but not on religion as such. It claims that the government is acting irrationally by imposing its mandate on a pro-life organization and women who do not want it.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys and allied attorneys are also litigating numerous other lawsuits against the abortion-pill mandate.

North Dakota police censor free speech of pro-life "truth truck"

WILLISTON, ND, Nov. 3, 2014/Christian Newswire --

The human life amendment on the North Dakota ballot for Tuesday's election remains hotly contested, but the right to free speech has long been guaranteed by the First Amendment. In Williston, North Dakota, police officers have silenced that free speech for pro-life advocates, who are being defended in court by the Thomas More Society.

Matt Trewhella, of Missionaries to the Preborn, and Rob Rudnick are supporters of the proposed human life amendment. They are also drivers of "truth trucks," vehicles adorned with large, graphic images of babies, both preborn and aborted. These "truth trucks" are intended to show the reality of abortion and influence North Dakota voters to uphold the human dignity of the unborn.

In August, just a little over two months before this election, Williston police officers ordered the pro-life advocates to remove the images. When Rudnick did not comply, he was arrested and the truck was confiscated. The case is set for pretrial hearing in district court in Williston on November 5, the day after the election. The Thomas More Society is defending Rudnick and is working with Trewhella and Missionaries to the Preborn, to pursue any redress that may be available to them in court.

"It's regrettable that Mr. Trewhella's and Mr. Rudnick's free speech was suppressed during this critical time before the election," said Tom Brejcha, Thomas More Society president and chief counsel. "Williston authorities have prohibited these pro-life advocates from proclaiming their pro-life message based on the content of that message, which is a patent violation of their First Amendment rights."

The images on Trewhella and Rudnick's "truth trucks" support North Dakota's proposed state constitutional human life amendment: "This constitutional measure would create and enact a new section to Article I of the North Dakota Constitution stating, 'The inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected.'"

The police report in the case explicitly states that it was the content of the signs on the trucks that prompted the police to suppress them. Trewhella was given a cease and desist directive to take his signs out of town and stay out of the city until after the election. Rudnick was likewise warned, but did not comply and was arrested, and his truck and signs were impounded.

"If someone disagrees with another's speech, the proper legal recourse is not suppression of speech but free speech in response," added Brejcha. "Our First Amendment does not permit silencing others just because you dislike their message."

ADF: AZ schools choose life-affirming curriculum

Alliance Defending Freedom/October 31, 2014/GILBERT, AZ --

An Alliance Defending Freedom letter and presentation to the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board prompted it to vote 3-2 in favor of requiring Gilbert Public Schools to comply with Arizona law and provide curriculum to students that encourages to child birth over elective abortion.

"School districts must follow the law and provide students with a curriculum that supports positive, life-affirming choices," said ADF Legal Counsel Natalie Decker. "We commend Gilbert Public Schools for taking the necessary steps to comply with a law designed to protect children and the state's strong interest in promoting childbirth and adoption."

In April 2012, Arizona Senate Bill 1009 was enacted and requires that no Arizona school district "may allow any presentation during instructional time or furnish any materials to pupils as part of any instruction that does not give preference, encouragement and support to childbirth and adoption as preferred options to elective abortion."

In January, parents expressed concern over a high school biology textbook, "Campbell Biology: Concepts and Connections" that discusses elective abortion and provides information about morning after pills that can induce abortion. Parents asked ADF to intervene to rectify Gilbert Public Schools' violation of state law.

"Students deserve to be taught important social values that promote life," added ADF Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton. "The Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board rightly voted to affirm state law and life."

Personhood Alliance to launch municipal ballot initiatives

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29, 2014 /Christian Newswire --

Our nation's newest national prolife group, Personhood Alliance (PA), today announced a ground-breaking campaign to launch pro-life ballot initiatives at the county and municipal level across the country in 2015.

"This represents the first time local voters will be able to approve no exceptions Personhood protection for all innocent human beings through their municipal ballots," said Dan Becker, current President of Georgia Right to Life and the interim President for Personhood Alliance.

Approving Personhood language in local ordinances and codes seeks to ensure that every innocent human life, from earliest biological beginning through natural death, is legally protected. "In addition to protecting children in the womb, this would add protection for the elderly infirm and severely disabled" said Becker.

The newly-formed PA is a Christ-centered organization which believes that pursing Personhood is essential to protecting innocent human life in the 21st century.

Gualberto Garcia Jones, J.D., Policy Director for the Personhood Alliance and author of Colorado's Amendment 67, expressed optimism ahead of Tuesday's elections in Colorado and North Dakota.

"Despite being outspent in Colorado by Planned Parenthood by a ratio of almost 120:1 ($2,708,500 to $22,929 ) the personhood movement is poised to make significant gains in the next few days," stated Mr. Garcia Jones, "when the results start coming in on Tuesday night, the media might be shocked by what it sees-the advance of Personhood as a movement. This has huge implications for local politicians."

"With its ideological stranglehold on the media and its government funded war chest, we know that winning in a head to head statewide battle with Planned Parenthood is almost impossible, so we are going to change the rules of engagement a little," said Molly Smith, President of Cleveland Right to Life, a key pro-life organization in the state of Ohio.

"In 2012, we watched as activists attempted to amend the municipal code of the city of Anchorage through a citizen ballot initiative. Although they were unsuccessful at the polls, they generated a lot of debate on their issue. We look forward to not only generating debate, but also being able to press our advantage in rural communities," said Christopher Kurka, Executive Director of Alaska Right to Life, a founding member of the Personhood Alliance.

States and municipalities have constitutionally recognized powers to promote public welfare and preserve public health. According to a 2014 Alabama Supreme Court decision, the 14th amendment to the US Constitution obligates states to use this power "to provide to unborn children at any stage of their development the same legal protection from injury and death they provide to persons already born."

"We look forward to following the clear and consistent rulings of the Alabama Supreme Court and working through the municipal bodies and through the ballot initiative process to ensure that in Alabama, every person is protected from their earliest stage of development," stated Bill Fortenberry, boardmember of Personhood Alabama.

In Mississippi, Les Riley of Personhood Mississippi is feeling upbeat about the future of the Personhood Movement. "In 2011, we were betrayed by establishment politicians like former Governor Haley Barber and had to endure the carpet bombing TV ad campaign by Planned Parenthood. Even then, we won many counties. We know that at the local level, Planned Parenthood and the media can't match our network of churches and our tight knit conservative communities." Dr. Beverly McMillan, President of Pro-life Mississippi concurred, "We are looking forward to a very active grass roots campaign in 2015."

In the Northeast, New Hampshire Right to Life recently made headlines by encouraging the New Hampshire GOP to adopt Personhood as part of its official party platform. "Ronald Reagan supported Personhood, the national GOP platform supports personhood, and we are proud that the New Hampshire GOP platform also supports personhood," said New Hampshire Right to Life PAC Director Darlene Pawlik.

The Personhood Alliance currently has established member organizations in Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Congressman says Obama officials aiding China's forced abortions

by Wendy Wright

New York/C-FAM/October 24, 2014 --

Pictures of mothers and their forcibly aborted babies ricochet across the Internet. Family planning agents extort massive fines from peasants. An attorney is tortured and jailed for defending mothers. Zhang Yimou, China's acclaimed film producer, is fined $1.24 million for violating his quota of children.

Over the past six years, evidence has mounted of China's brutal enforcement of its one-child policy. Now a U.S. congressman is accusing Obama's top officials of breaking U.S. laws and aiding China's forced abortions policies.

Obama has given $227 million to a UN agency that facilitates the one-child policy, and visas to Chinese officials with ties to brutal acts of forced abortions, charged Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ).

The U.S. bars federal funding of organizations complicit with China's forced abortion and sterilization policies, or allowing foreigners directly involved in its enforcement into the U.S. "Only a handful of abusers have been denied visas," Smith said.

Smith gave a litany of China's abuses and how Obama officials enable them in a speech last week.

China's harsh penalties for having a child without government permission range from abduction and forced abortion, jail, lost jobs, destroyed homes and fines up to ten-times the parents' annual income.

In just 24 provinces, more than $3 billion a year was collected in fines, often pocketed by local bureaucrats.

Lately, Chinese leaders have bent to pressure as victims posted pictures on the Internet and described abuses, sparking international fury. In some cases enforcers have been fired and families paid assistance.

Rather than heaping on pressure, Obama officials signal they endorse China's policy....

ADF addresses U.S. Supreme Court's TX abortion decision

Alliance Defense Fund/October 15, 2014 --

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Casey Mattox regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's decision Tuesday to place a temporary hold on portions of a Texas abortion law while litigation in Planned Parenthood of Texas Surgical Health Services v. Abbott continues at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit:

Texans have the freedom to prioritize women's health and safety over the bottom line of abortionists, and this good law affirms that. The Supreme Court's decision only temporarily and partially prevents the Texas law from going into effect while the 5th Circuit finishes hearing the case. While that is disappointing, it should cause no great alarm. The state's requirement against cut-and-run abortionists remains in effect for all but two abortion facilities.

The restriction on abortions after 20 weeks on unborn children who can feel pain was never challenged and remains in effect today.

Likewise, the limitations on chemical abortions up to seven weeks gestation and prohibiting abortionists from sending women home alone to abort have been upheld and remain in effect. We remain confident that the entirety of Texas's law will ultimately be upheld.

International Day of the Girl Child: Rep. Chris Smith, Chen Guangcheng and Reggie Littlejohn on China's One Child Policy

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2014 /Christian Newswire --

Women's Rights Without Frontiers is thrilled to announce that it will partner with the acclaimed research think tank The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. in an event commemorating the International Day of the Girl Child. The October 9 event will center on the terrible truths of China's One Child Policy and feature a discussion on valuing women and girls in the 21st century.

Congressman Chris Smith, a passionate and effective advocate for human rights in China, will provide the keynote address, followed by commentary by WRWF Founder and President Reggie Littlejohn and celebrated blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng. Director of Heritage's Asia Study Center, Walter Lohman, will moderate their remarks.

Beginning in 2008, Littlejohn advocated tirelessly in Europe and the United States to free Chen. Littlejohn stated, "I was humbled to testify at several Congressional hearings chaired by Rep. Smith concerning the terrible persecution of Chen Guangcheng, advocating passionately that the Chinese government release him and the U.S. government take him in. The day that Chen Guangcheng and his family set foot on U.S. soil was the most exciting day of my life. Speaking with Rep. Smith and Chen Guangcheng at Heritage is an extraordinary opportunity I never thought possible during the long years when Chen's freedom seemed inconceivable."

China's One Child Policy causes more violence against women and girls than any other official policy on earth and any other official policy in the history of the world. The Chinese Communist Party boasts that it has "prevented" 400 million births through the One Child Policy. The policy is still ruthlessly enforced through forced abortion and sterilization. Cultural preference for boys has promoted the sex-selective abortions of baby girls. This gendercide has caused a staggering gender imbalance in which there are 37 million more men than women living in China today. This gender imbalance is in turn driving sex-trafficking, a black market for children, and social unrest. The coercive enforcement of China's One Child Policy is the biggest women's rights issue - indeed, the biggest human rights issue - in the world today, affecting 1.2 billion people, one fifth of the population of the earth.

The presentation will be from noon to 1:00 p.m. at The Heritage Foundation's office at 214 Massachusetts Avenue NE, Washington, DC 20002. RSVPs, while not required, are encouraged.

National Life Chain Sunday 2014 - October 5

MEDIA ADVISORY, Oct. 1, 2014 /Christian Newswire --

National Life Chain Sunday, on October 5, will again occupy U.S. and Canadian sidewalks to provide a 'visible voice' for preborn children threatened by the surgical abortionists' cruel instruments or by the deadly chemicals in abortive birth controls. The poignant messages for Life Chain's 27th year of public witness will include Abortion Kills Children, Adoption the Loving Option, Jesus Forgives and Heals, and The Pill and IUD Also Kill Children. The location and time of the 1550 cities and towns participating will be posted at www.LifeChain.net.

In brief, Life Chain is an ecumenical prayer ministry rightly described as an afternoon extension of Sunday morning worship. Pastoral leadership is key, and the intent of each Chain is to provide God an outreach to anoint and work through. Only He can end the abortion holocaust now ravaging America and Canada, but for Him to do so, we must assume the duty He assigned to His church. As expressed by R. Arthur Matthews in Born for Battle, "without God man cannot" and "without man God will not."

Let us, then, on October 5, bond with God's sovereignty and resolve to defend the Preborns at risk in each local community. Of that duty, Pastor Curt Young wrote in The Least of These: "God declares that spiritual exercise counts for nothing when injustice is permitted to go unchecked. It is the muted cries of harm's victims that reach His ears... Petitions from saints indifferent to these sounds that pierce God's heart are hollow by comparison.... Love obliges us not only to care for neighbors who are the victims of injustice, but also to overcome the injustice itself so that other neighbors may be spared."

In 1945, following the unspeakable pain and destruction imposed by the holocaust they witnessed. German church leaders wrote: "We did not fear God above all the powers of men and government; we did not trust and obey God unconditionally... That is what gave the demon of humanity free rein among us.... Before Him there cries out against us all the innocently shed blood, all the blaspheming of his Holy name, and all the inhumanities which occurred in our midst, especially against the Jews" (from The Berlin-Brandenburg Church Leadership Day of Repentance Petition).

National Life Chain Sunday 2014 affords us in America and Canada valuable time for confession. Let us use it earnestly and commit to save the children who rely so heavily on our partnership with God. And let us do more. Let's end legal child killing in our nation.

Playing the victim card ignores the real victim: the unborn baby

National Right to Life News/September 29, 2014 --

By Dave Andrusko

... National Right to Life News Today readers are familiar with Jennifer Whalen and the publicity campaign to make a martyr out of woman who trolled the Internet for chemical abortifacients to kill her grandchild.

She was recently sentenced to serve a 9-to-18-month in jail (with granted work-release) for what the New York Times' Emily Bazelon described mockingly as

[O]rdering pills online that her older daughter took in the first several weeks of an unplanned pregnancy, when she was 16, to induce a miscarriage. The medication was a combination of mifepristone (formerly called RU-486) and misoprostol. The drugs have been available from a doctor with a prescription in the United States since 2000 and are used around the world to induce miscarriage.
The author of the editorial in the University of Buffalo student newspaper piece obviously read Bazelon's piece. To their credit, he or she grasped that "The illegality of Whalen's actions isn't in question here. There's no doubt that the dispersal of prescription drugs needs to be strictly monitored and controlled by professionals who are trained to do so."

So what is in question? "[T]hat Whalen felt she needed to circumvent the law is the real issue at hand." And that the judge, in the editorial writer's opinion, was too harsh. That "reveals a lack of sympathy for Whalen's situation - a situation created by factors entirely outside of her control." We read

Tasked with helping her daughter end an unwanted pregnancy - with protecting her daughter and the future she wanted - Whalen didn't feel like she had any options available, at least not any legal ones (she also says that she didn't know her actions were illegal when she committed them).
And since, as the last paragraph concludes, "Thanks to her mother's efforts, [her daughter] is free to pursue whatever future she desires," it is "patently unjust that freedom is only a distant hope" for Jennifer Whalen.

Apparently it's not unjust that the grandbaby has no hope, distant or otherwise.

A couple of thoughts. The list of reasons the editorial cites--distance to the nearest abortion clinic, cost, and ignorance ("if Whalen had known of the risks of ordering pills online")--is just a backdoor way of getting at the real "enemy": the absence of an abortion clinic on every corner, any law that requires a waiting period, limitations on how late in pregnancy chemical abortifacients should be used, and (although not mentioned here) requirements that abortion clinics meet minimal standards.

In other words, you (authors of pro-life legislation and, I guess, the FDA) made Ms. Whalen do it. They (taxpayers) should be paying for Ms. Whalen's teenage daughter's abortion.

Moreover you and/or they are responsible when the inevitable happens, (but fortunately did not to Ms. Whalen's daughter): women and girls die.

It's a very unsubtle argument. We must facilitate abortions, pay for abortions, forget protective laws, and keep parents out of the loop.

Because if we don't, the blame is not on the women getting the abortion (or the parents who order abortifacients online) but us.

Miss America, abortion, and why these two things go together now... unfortunately

by Dani Stringer, CPNP

On Sunday night, I, like 6.7 million other Americans, tuned into ABC to watch the 2015 Miss America crowning. In my family, watching Miss America together is a tradition as strong as pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving and praying before meals. We have done this for generations. Ever since I was a toddler, I was inspired by Miss America. That inspiration even led me to compete in the organization and make the top 5 at Miss Arizona in 2012. But, with the unfolding events since Sunday night, that inspiration has dissipated....

Kira [Kazantsev] used to work at Planned Parenthood. This revelation created such a firestorm from the media that the Chairman and CEO of the Miss American Organization Sam Haskell made this statement.

"Each Miss America takes a different path to the crown and Kira's path is no less special. Kira's college internship with Planned Parenthood afforded her the opportunity to advocate against child abuse while writing her thesis," the statement said. "In choosing a Miss America, the judges seek a well-rounded young woman who has the life experiences to be an effective role model. Kira's life experiences--including being a first-generation American, a triple major college graduate, fluent in three languages, as well as her vocational opportunities--have shaped her into the tremendous young woman she is today."

I refuse to move past that statement. For an organization that is foundationally built on producing spokeswomen and role models, the president just made one of the most dichotomous statements I've ever heard. Did you catch that? According to him, working for America's largest provider of abortions gave Kira the opportunity to advocate against child abuse. Child abuse is defined as "any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation." Let me get one thing very loud and very clear for the misinformed Sam Haskell and the rest of America:

Terminating a child's life intentionally is child abuse. 

If a one month old is murdered in the United States, we are outraged. However, if this baby was killed just a few weeks before in-utero, it is a victory for women's rights. Sam Haskell went as far as to say that an internship at the very organization responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of children gave Kira the right to "advocate against child abuse." If abortion isn't child abuse, nothing is. No matter what form or fashion Kira's internship at Planned Parenthood took, she worked for the epitome of child abusers in the United States. I don't care how many languages Kira speaks, if she doesn't support the language of life and equality for pre-born children, I'm not listening....

Alliance Defending Freedom appeals illegal funding of abortions with CO taxpayer dollars

Thursday, September 18, 2014/Alliance Defending Freedom/Denver, CO --

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing the former executive director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment filed an appeal Thursday of a trial court's decision that upheld the state's alleged misuse of more than $14 million in taxpayer dollars. The lawsuit contends that the funding Colorado has provided to Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood violates a voter-approved state constitutional provision that prohibits direct or indirect public taxpayer subsidies for abortion.

"No one is above the law, including Colorado politicians who are violating our state's constitution by continuing to fund Planned Parenthood's abortion activities with state taxpayer dollars," said ADF Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton. "The state acknowledges that about $1.4 million of state taxpayer money flowed from state government agencies through Planned Parenthood to its abortion affiliate. The lower court seems to have agreed with that but dismissed the case on a technicality."

"We hope the Colorado Court of Appeals reinstates this case for the benefit of the taxpayers and the voters who clearly intended to stop exactly this kind of back-door funding," added ADF Legal Counsel Natalie Decker, who is co-counsel in the case....
