In the 1960’s, when abortions were available only for “therapeutic” reasons, it was not uncommon for persons with the means and know-how to obtain an abortion on psychiatric grounds. In some states, all that was necessary was to find an agreeable psychiatrist willing to diagnose every woman with a problem pregnancy as “suicidal.”
Yet all the studies done on this issue show that pregnancy is actually correlated with a dramatic decreased rate of suicide compared to non-pregnant women. Read More
October 22, 2015 (LC) — On September 29, Inside the Vatican and Liberty Counsel both announced that Pope Francis met privately with Kim Davis on September 24. Since the announcement, there has been a wide variety of reporting ranging from some who deny any meeting occurred to others who admit a meeting occurred but that Kim Davis was merely one of many in a sea of faces. The fact is, Kim Davis was invited to a private meeting with the Pope and did meet privately with him on the afternoon of September 24, during which meeting Pope Francis said to Kim, “I want to thank you for your courage” and “Stay strong.” Below are the facts:
1. While Kim Davis was in jail on September 3, 2015, Inside the Vatican reported, “A Church source advises that Francis may soon decide to delegate a personal representative to visit Kim on his behalf.”
2. After spending six days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses, Kim Davis returned to work on September 14 and that evening received an invitation from the Vatican Embassy for a private meeting with Pope Francis on Thursday afternoon, September 24. Continue Reading.

In 1928, 16-year-old Minka Disbrow was on a picnic in the woods when she was assaulted and raped. Suddenly, this innocent farm girl was pregnant and terrified. The baby was secretly born, named Betty Jane, and placed for adoption.
For decades, Minka wrote letters trying to receive updates on her daughter. She kept loving and praying for Betty Jane, even though she never thought they’d meet again.
Nearly 80 years later, Minka whispered a prayer: “Lord, I’d like to see Betty Jane before I die. I promise I won’t bother her or interrupt her life. I just want to lay eyes on her.” Unbeknownst to Minka, a judge was releasing the sealed adoption records to her 77-year-old daughter. Soon, Minka’s phone would ring with the news she’d been secretly hoping for.

CatholicVote.org exposes political contributions on new PlannedProfithood.org site
CHICAGO — The House Judiciary Committee today opened investigative hearings on Planned Parenthood, but many Democrats on the Judiciary Committee have a conflict of interest, says Brian Burch, President of CatholicVote.org.
According to FEC records, 10 Democratic Members of the Committee have received contributions from Planned Parenthood’s campaign fund:
The House Judiciary Committee has announced that Congress will hold its first hearing on the Planned Parenthood scandal next week, following the recess. Among the witnesses to provide testimony are two women who survived abortion attempts; they will speak from first-hand experience about the horrors of the abortion industry.
The first of a series of hearings, titled “Planned Parenthood Exposed: Examining the Horrific Abortion Practices at the Nation’s Largest Abortion Provider,” will take place on Wednesday, September 9.
Let us pray for those who promote and support the abortion industry. Let us pray that they might experience conversion. Let us pray that they might know mercy and freedom. Let us pray that through Jesus Christ, who came to the world as an unborn child, every abortionist might rediscover the dignity, the joy, and the beauty of humanity.”

If your child was diagnosed with a health condition that required surgery and she was given a 50/50 chance of surviving, would you skip the surgery and allow her to die? Would you do everything in your power to save and help your child? Or would you say, “you know what, that time with you will involve too much effort, too many sleepless nights, and not enough time for me to focus on other things in my life, plus you won’t feel so good, so let’s skip the surgery and just end your life now”?
That’s what happens in late-term abortions.

Slate: Planned Parenthood’s 3% figure is ‘the most meaningless abortion statistic ever’
For years Planned Parenthood has claimed that abortion only makes up a measly, piddling “3%” of its services.
The statistic is nonsense. But most people never bother to question it, and with the mainstream media repeating the figure ad nauseam the 3% lie has been a gadfly in the face of pro-life efforts to inform the public and get Planned Parenthood’s half a billion dollars in taxpayer funding yanked.
Which is why it’s so significant that a 2013 article by one of the senior editors of the far-left online magazine Slate is starting to make the rounds today. I don’t…
Over 1000 people braved the heat at the capital yesterday at the Truth Exposed rally in Des Moines to protest the sickening videos about Planned Parenthood’s program of selling body parts of aborted children.
The rally was organized by Iowa Right to Life and WHO radio host Simon Conway.
Governor Terry Branstad, Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds, Senator Joni Ernst, Congressman David Young, Congresman Steve King, Rick Santorum, and representatives for many of the other presidential campaigns were among those who spoke.
August 13, 2015 (CatholicStand) — Recently the investigative journalism conducted by David Daleiden who started the Center for Medical Progress has provided a raw look into the minds of the people involved in the “human capital” abortion industry. As the videos continue to come out and lawsuits are filed threatening to suppress free speech and journalism, perhaps this is a good time to look more broadly at the sale and use of aborted fetuses in scientific research.
One does not need to conduct an undercover investigation to discover “human capital.” The facts are in the academic record, and they offer cold hard evidence that what Daleiden is revealing is not only true, but spans far, deep, and wide across time and locale.
