The European Parliament will vote Tuesday on a report, known as the Estrela Report, which will decide whether or not abortion is a “human right.” This is important first because it is absurd to think that abortion is a human right. This is important secondly because this vote will no doubt have consequences for America.
As Americans continue to recognize that life should be defended from conception to natural death, the abortion industry grows desperate. Clinics are closing at unprecedented rates, pro-life laws are being passed by states like never before, and most Americans now identify as pro-life than in the last 40 years. This spells trouble for the money making machine of the abortion industry.
A vote, such as the one taking place tomorrow, will have a ripple effect on the United States. Should the European Parliament find a “human right” to abortion, we can be sure the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history and his administration will seek to further push their pro-abortion agenda on us. However, if the vote defends life, we can expect an increased surge in the protection of life here in the states.
Here’s some important statistics you need to know about abortion coverage in state insurance plans:
34 states prohibit public funding of abortions for indigent women.
19 states restrict coverage in insurance plans for public employees.
23 states prohibit coverage in plans offered through the exchanges.
8 states have laws restricting insurance coverage of abortion in private insurance plans.
These statistics show how abortion coverage is restricted in the states so that people will a moral or religious objection to abortion are not forced to pay for it. Here’s one more very important statistic:
West Virginia has no restrictions on abortion coverage in insurance plans. None.
A recent article explains what some states have done: “Obamacare allows health insurers selling plans on exchanges to cover abortion. In response, some states have passed ‘opt-out’ laws, barring insurers participating in their exchanges from offering health plans that include coverage of elective abortion. However, 27 states and the District of Columbia have taken no final action to prevent insurers from covering elective abortion.”
While most states have taken measures to secure the moral, religious rights of pro-life people that don’t want to fund abortion, West Virginia has done nothing. As many of our lawmakers claim to be pro-life and say they will defend life, they have yet to put any action behind those words. For now, every citizen paying taxes in West Virginia is also helping to fund the abortion industry and ensuring that 5-7 West Virginia babies are killed daily in our great state. Let that sink in for a while. Click here for original article.
Planned Parenthood officials are officially “disappointed” by the results of Plan B on the unintended pregnancy rate. They believed this abortion drug would be the answer to their perceived problem but it has not had an impact on the rate, which has stayed steady at 50% of all pregnancies. Planned Parenthood recently said: “While there’s a lot of data to show it can prevent pregnancy in individual women, we’ve all been disappointed that on the population level, it just hasn’t had the effect we hoped…The unintended pregnancy rate hasn’t changed at all.”
It’s almost as if Planned Parenthood cannot understand that many people are pro-life, and taking a drug that will kill a living human being is simply not an option. So whether the pregnancy is unintended or not, Plan B will not be considered. This is a simple way to explain the steady unintended pregnancy rate. It might be too simple for Planned Parenthood to understand. Click here for original article.
Planned Parenthood vehemently opposes any laws requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. Abortion advocates often refer to such laws as TRAP laws – Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers – and say their sole purpose is to put undue burden and stigma on abortionists. But is that the truth behind these laws?
First, let’s be clear about what laws requiring admitting privileges are. These laws simply require that any medical professional that performs any type of invasive surgical procedure hold admitting privileges at a hospital close to the clinic where the procedures are being performed. Admitting privileges simply means the medical professional is allowed to attend to the needs of their patient should something go wrong and the person need to be admitted to the hospital.
So, in essence, all these laws are doing is to require a person performing medical procedures be allowed to serve their patient at a local hospital should something go wrong. That seems like an easy to understand, common sense requirement for any medical professional; one that a doctor would gladly endorse in an effort to serve his or her patients.
What makes videos like these so unbelievable is the ease and comfort the pharmacists show in selling an abortion drug to an admitted statutory rapist while his victim stands with him. It is an appalling site to watch this rapist tell the pharmacists that he is having an illegal sexual relationship with a minor and see them show absolutely no concern. This further proves that medical professionals are not concerned with protecting minors and gives greater evidence that parents must be vigilant in protecting their kids.

Abortion advocates say some of the most outrageously absurd things. I don’t know how else to characterize the words that come out of their mouths. By any logical, rational standard the ideas and comments they put forth make absolutely no sense and would in any other context be considered too ridiculous to take seriously.
Take for example the comments of a British abortion advocate and attorney who said that rape victims bear some responsibility for being raped. In other words, “the fact that you were violently attacked and forced against your will to have sex is kind of your fault too.” I can’t even imagine making such a statement in the case of a prostitute being raped because logic dictates that there is a difference between consensual and non-consensual sex in every context.
If you paid attention to the vote that took place in Albuquerque this week you were disappointed by the defeat of a ballot measure aimed at protecting unborn children. Voters rejected a measure that would have banned abortion after five months. This is the point in pregnancy when an unborn child can feel pain, which makes abortion nothing less than cruel torture and murder.
While the defeat of this measure might be immediately disappointing, Family Research Council researcher Anna Higgins says good will come from this very public battle:
“The hard work that was put into the measure was not in vain. Due to efforts such as these, people are waking up to the fact that abortion necessarily involves two lives and that late term abortion is an unnecessary evil. In fact, 64% of Americans support banning the practice of late-term abortion. We must build on this effort in [Albuquerque] and begin to introduce similar legislation in cities across the country. These efforts go a long way towards exposing the truth about abortion. They also force those who support the heinous practice to defend themselves in light of the reality that abortion causes excruciating pain to the preborn child and is dangerous for the mother.” Click here to read original article.
Two articles caught my attention recently. One was from a “parenting” website called “Mommyish” at which a blogger shared a list of reasons to kill your unborn child. Now, I don’t know for sure if the irony of advocating child murder on a parenting website was lost on the writer, but it wasn’t lost on me.
The list of reasons this blogger felt were worthy of killing an unborn child is below.
