Challenging Roe? Mississippi Abortion Case to Be Heard by Supreme Court

By Jessica Lea -May 17, 2021

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has agreed to hear a Mississippi abortion case that could set the Court up to challenge its previous landmark decisions in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood vs. Casey. 

“BREAKING: The Supreme Court agrees to take up a major abortion case that will give the court an opportunity to reconsider Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey,” announced the SCOTUSblog on Twitter. “The case involves the constitutionality of Mississippi’s ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.”

The Supreme Court will hear the case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, this October and will likely make a decision by June 2022. 

SCOTUS to Consider Mississippi Abortion Ban 

In 2018, the state Mississippi passed a law banning abortions after 15 weeks, except in the case of health emergencies or fetal abnormalities. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the state’s only licensed abortion clinic, sued to challenge the law on the grounds that Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey protect the right to an abortion prior to the viability of the fetus. In other words, the Court’s precedent indicates that if a baby is not developed enough to survive outside the womb, it can be aborted. 

Fetal viability is generally accepted to occur around 24 weeks of pregnancy. However, a 2001 study notes, “Viability exists as a function of biomedical and technological capacities, which are different in different parts of the world. As a consequence, there is, at the present time, no worldwide, uniform gestational age that defines viability.” According to the study, the chance of a baby surviving outside the womb at 23 weeks is 10%, while the chance of survival at 24 weeks is “about 50%.”

Both a federal court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit upheld the abortion provider’s position that SCOTUS has consistently supported a right to an abortion prior to fetal viability. Hillary Schneller, an attorney representing Jackson Women’s Health Organization, asked SCOTUS not to take the case, saying, “In an unbroken line of decisions over the last fifty years, this Court has held that the Constitution guarantees each person the right to decide whether to continue a pre-viability pregnancy…Nothing about this case warrants this Court’s intervention.” 

For its part, the state is questioning viability as a standard for the permissiveness of abortion, arguing that it keeps states from defending the health of the mother and the life of the unborn child. Said the state, “This case presents a substantial and important question of federal law: Whether a law which bars some, but not all, abortions after a gestational age of 15 weeks, is categorically unconstitutional, without any comparison of the potential benefits and burdens.”  

The state also said, “To be clear, the questions presented in this petition do not require the Court to overturn Roe or Casey,” but rather to “reconcile a conflict in its own precedents.” 

It remains to be seen whether the Court’s decision about the Mississippi abortion case could lead to overturning Roe or Casey. To some, the very fact that fetal viability is in question means that it would do so. Another reason the case is significant because it is the first time the nation will see how Trump appointee Amy Coney Barrett will vote on a major abortion case. It will also be the first time all three Trump-appointed Supreme Court justices, (Barrett, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh) will decide a major abortion case together on a Court that has a 6-3 conservative majority.

In early 2019, when SCOTUS struck down a law that would have limited doctors in Louisiana to providing abortions only if they had “admitting privileges” to a hospital within 30 miles, Kavanaugh and Gorsuch dissented, voting to put the law into effect.

March for Life president Jeanne Mancini released a statement in response to the news about the Supreme Court’s decision to take the Mississippi abortion case:

March for Life works for the day when abortion is unthinkable, but currently the United States is one of only seven countries – including China and North Korea – that allows abortions through all nine months of pregnancy. An overwhelming majority of Americans agree that this goes way too far, in fact 70% think abortion should be limited to – at most – the first three months of pregnancy. States should be allowed to craft laws that are in line with both public opinion on this issue as well as basic human compassion, instead of the extreme policy that Roe imposed.”

‘Standing in the Gap’: Pro-Life Group Celebrates Over 4,000 Babies Saved from Abortion During Pandemic

05-07-2021 by Deborah Bunting

Can anything good come out of a pandemic lockdown? The pro-life group Human Coalition answers with a definite “yes” and “amen” to that question.  

The group reports more than 4,000 unborn children headed for abortion were rescued from death during the lockdowns last year through their outreach. The coalition also is celebrating the milestone of 20,000 abortion-minded women who changed their minds and chose to let their babies be born since the group rescued its first mother and child in 2010.

While the pandemic presented huge challenges to most ministries and saw many businesses collapse, Human Coalition President Jeff Bradford told The Christian Post (CP) that when the lockdowns began, his group was already geared up with the technology to reach expectant mothers with telecare and virtual options.

“We were able to continue to minister to women and just save lives, which was amazing,” Bradford said.

Within just a weekend, the organization was able to shift all of its nurses online. 

“When the pandemic hit, because we’re a technology-driven company, we were able to move very quickly into a virtual model with all of our brick-and-mortar clinics,” Bradford said. 

Telecare is a great fit for the 18-to-24-year-old group most needing their services because that generation is very comfortable with technology. It allowed the Human Coalition staff to be able to shorten the wait for appointments and let the mothers talk to someone about their pregnancy much sooner, Bradford told the CP.

“We also were able to get twice as many women through the doors than we were in the traditional brick-and-mortar model, and it really breaks down geographic and transportation issues,” he said. “So we are able to serve a much broader client, get them in faster because we’re counseling them immediately and not having to wait days before they show up.”

Human Coalition has seven brick-and-mortar clinics available to women in Cleveland, Atlanta, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, and Charlotte, as well as two exclusively Telecare Women’s Clinics staffed with nurses and social workers. Its purpose is to show women that abortion is not the only option they have when faced with an unexpected pregnancy and to offer counseling, resources, and a continuum of care as they choose life for their babies.

The pandemic has increased anxiety and economic uncertainty for many of these mothers, Bradford says, making the choice of life for the unborn child an even braver one.

“Choosing life for her child is one of the most courageous and brave things a woman can do because you know these women are in tough situations and what we do is help empower them…,” he said. 

Empower them by offering a true alternative to abortion that helps them choose life. Something Bradford calls “standing in the gap” for these women.  

As a result, despite the pandemic, hardship, and tough situations, Bradford says this Mother’s Day there is much to celebrate.

“Imagine all the moms who will get to celebrate Mother’s Day with their child in just a few days. Imagine all the families who will get to make a lifetime of memories together. Imagine all the boys and girls who will grow up, attend school, play sports, celebrate holidays, and could go on to have children of their own one day,” Bradford said in a statement. “We thank God for using Human Coalition to help save preborn children and to provide resources, services, and hope to women in need.”

Top 10 Sickening Details About How Federal Employees Trafficked Baby Body Parts

New emails uncovered by Judicial Watch’s FOIA request detail how FDA employees were working with buyers to get ‘fresh’ aborted baby organs for experiments.

Top 10 Sickening Details About How Federal Employees Trafficked Baby Body Parts

By Edie Heipel APRIL 26, 2021

This article contains disturbing information about human dismemberment.

In what should have been a national headline, the exposure of the U.S. government’s involvement in trafficking aborted baby bodies is now even more newsworthy following Friday’s announcement from the White House. At Joe Biden’s direction, the Department of Health and Human Services reversed the Trump administration’s policy protecting preborn Americans from the callous dehumanization of organ harvesting and further desecration of their bodies in research disguised as “science.”

This sickening decision now gives license to our “best and brightest” government researchers and agencies, those in charge of steering the country towards medical breakthroughs and scientific progress, to use the skin, brains, and eyeballs of children in research that affects all of us and is funded by our money. For this very reason, we must know the full extent of how federal agencies traffic aborted baby body parts.

These top 10 shocking examples come from the latest emails uncovered by Judicial Watch’s FOIA request and recent investigations.

1. The FDA Paid $2,000 Per Baby

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration paid an estimated $2,000 per individual baby, at times adding up to $12,000 per box of harvested organs.

Email records confirm the FDA agreed to pre-pay Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), likely the country’s largest fetal tissue trafficking firm, an estimated $2,000 for each aborted child, adding up to $12,000 per average box of tissue with shipping and packaging fees.

2. FDA Bought Organs of Dismembered Babies

The FDA bought organs like livers, brains, and eyeballs of dismembered babies for hundreds of dollars apiece, courtesy of ABR’s collusion with local Planned Parenthoods.

ABR fee schedules and pricing charts obtained during a U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Investigation allow us to piece together how much a baby costs by body part, as if each child was a slaughtered animal sold in sections.

3. ABR Sold the Skin of a 21-Week-Old Down Syndrome Baby

FDA’s purchases were calculated according to ABR’s current “Fees for Services Schedule,” which maintained the same prices for all buyers. One procurement log records the sale of a 21-week old baby with Down Syndrome. This child’s limbs, organs, and skin were sold at hundreds of dollars apiece. ABR made $2,600 in total from the sale of this baby.

Whether or not the FDA itself purchased any of this tissue, the fact it entered a contract with a company that makes money off of selling the body parts of children with Down Syndrome is beyond inhumane.

It’s worth looking closely at this chart to see the level of dehumanization inflicted on this child. Each baby (“specimen”) is given a number (“No. xxx602”) and its individual body parts are sold to different customers. A 21-week old child who could have survived outside of the womb becomes just another statistic.

4. The FDA Wanted ‘Fresh’ Babies

The FDA demanded that tissue be in pristine condition. Their initial quote specifies that tissue must be “fresh, never frozen” and harvested from babies 16-24 weeks old “free of known chromosomal abnormalities.”

5. The FDA Asked for Organs from Late-Term Babies

The conscience of many pro-choice Americans has historically been alleviated by the assurance that most abortions occur when a baby is not “viable” to live outside the womb and that barbaric dismemberment procedures don’t happen. But emails prove the FDA bought numerous body parts from babies up to 24 weeks old, a date at which many preemies survive and go on to live healthy lives.

6. The FDA Bought Skulls of Second-Trimester Babies

Receipts confirm the FDA bought “intact calvariums” of babies from 8-24 weeks gestation for use in experiments. It is unclear exactly how these intact heads were used.

7. Busy Abortion Clinics Produced ‘Awful Specimens’

The FDA expressed a demand for more “fresh” tissue, but ABR responded that the busiest clinics in California produced “awful” specimens that were too mangled to use. The sheer volume of abortions at these clinics would have made it difficult for workers to keep up with preserving more intact specimens.

8. FDA Requested Boy Organs to Create Humanized Mice

The FDA went so far as to request organs from baby boys to use in “very important and … challenging” surgeries to create humanized mice. ABR responded that they would do their best but could make no promises due to the “nature of termination procedures,” which mutilate a baby’s body beyond physical recognition.

9. FDA, ABR Employees Called Aborted Babies ‘Amazing’

Email after email reveals the inhumanity FDA researchers and ABR employees have become accustomed to, casually referring to the organs of dead children as “amazing” and “beautiful” as if they were admiring jewels.

10. Taxpayers Paid for FDA Trips to ‘Humanized Mice Workshops’ in Europe

As if the research wasn’t enough, email traffic uncovered that FDA employees would be joining ABR associates at a “Humanized Mice Workshop” in Zurich later that year.

If you’ve managed to read to the bottom of this list, you’re no longer wondering why the federal government covered up these documents for so long. But you may be wondering why this story isn’t a national headline and why journalists, many of whom claim to be uncovering humanitarian abuses, still choose to ignore it.

There may be mainstream media silence and gaslighting by medical experts who tell us there’s nothing to see here, but the American people know better. We are no longer immune to the utter depravity of our federal government’s partnership with the corporate abortion cartel and their cowering beneath the guise of science. The truth is on the fighting side.

Federal Government Caught Buying ‘Fresh’ Flesh Of Aborted Babies Who Could Have Survived As Preemies

Federal Government Caught Buying ‘Fresh’ Flesh Of Aborted Babies Who Could Have Survived As Preemies

Americans should be outraged their government participates in the wide-scale human trafficking operation that created a market for harvesting the organs of murdered infants.

April 15, 2021 By Edie Heipel

This article contains disturbing information about human dismemberment.

Last week, legal accountability group Judicial Watch dropped a bombshell: a nearly 600-page report proving the U.S. government has been buying and trafficking “fresh” aborted baby body parts. These body parts, purchased by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to “humanize” mice and test biologic drugs in scientific experiments, came from babies up to 24-weeks-old gestation, just weeks from being born.

While Americans may be used to hearing pro-lifers beat the warning drum on abortion groups harvesting baby bodies and selling them for research, (who hasn’t heard of the lawsuit against David Daleiden, who exposed Planned Parenthood haggling over baby lungs and livers at dinner parties?) this time, the U.S. government was the one trafficking baby parts.

Recent emails uncovered by Judicial Watch between FDA employees and the California-based Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) prove the agency spent tens of thousands of dollars buying aborted babies for unethical scientific experiments between 2012 and 2018. In 2018, the Trump administration terminated the contract, halting government fetal tissue research due to concerns the contracts were unlawful. Judicial Watch’s new FOIA Request adds 575 pages of recordsto its existing 2019 lawsuit against the agency.

Caught Red-Handed

This is not the first time ABR has been in the spotlight, as the company was under congressional investigation for its long-standing involvement in fetal tissue trafficking. One of the oldest fetal tissue procurement firms, the company makes millions every year by harvesting organs like lungs, livers, eyeballs, and brains from aborted babies and re-selling them at a profit.

Emails between FDA officials and ABR employees reveal disturbing conversations as they collaborate to buy and sell aborted fetuses. Records indicate ABR was paid $12,000 upfront per baby, some survivable out of the womb, between the gestational age of 16-24 weeks. Most purchases are for intact thymuses and livers shipped “Fresh; on wet ice.”

With the callousness of picking a cut of meat from a butcher shop, an FDA doctor requests tissue samples be procured from a baby boy, as they claim “It is strongly preferred to have a male fetus if at all possible … [but] undetermined sex or female is better than no tissue.”

Even more appalling is an ABR employee complaining about the difficulty of identifying the sex of aborted babies. “We only check external genitalia and if it’s not there … we have no way of telling.” The fact techs are unable to identify the sex of aborted babies is no surprise to those familiar with the barbaric nature of abortion procedures, which require clinic staff to piece together mangled remains of babies after their limbs and organs are torn apart.

As if these casual orders weren’t horrific enough, more emails confirm that the FDA bought organs of babies who were aborted well after 20 weeks gestation, after the time a baby usually can survive outside the womb. If nothing else, this confirms the reality of late-term abortionsin the United States, which pro-abortion cheerleaders have denied for decades.

When an ABR employee reassured the FDA they were working with doctors who performed late-term abortions, he admitted some tissue was unusable from a procedure that injects a poison called digoxin into the baby, destroying its cells and tissues. Once the chemical has done its work, an intact, dead baby is delivered. This method makes fetal tissue specimens unusable in experiments; with digoxin off the table, the likelihood partial-birth abortions were used is sickeningly high.

These conversations should shock even those who are pro-abortion, most of whom believe in significant term restrictions. Babies at this level of development possess all characteristics necessary for surviving life outside the womb and premature children born as young as 21 weeks go on to lead healthy, thriving lives.

An Atrocity Against Human Dignity

These gruesome excerpts are just a sample of records substantiating the 2019 lawsuit Judicial Watch filed against HHS, which houses the FDA. In March this year, a federal court ordered the agency to release records it withheld about purchasing organs of aborted babies, saying it found “reason to question” the transactions violated federal law.

The court’s decision found that the U.S. government bought second-trimester livers, thymuses, brains, eyes, and lungs for hundreds of dollars apiece from ABR, stating ABR could collect “over $2,000 on a single fetus it purchased … for $60” and “the federal government participated in this potentially illicit trade for years.”

Americans should be outraged their government participates in the wide-scale human trafficking operation that created a market for harvesting the organs of murdered infants. In no humane society could such a violation of the human body and dignity occur, in which babies’ eyes are “harvested immediately upon death,” organs marketed based on sex, and personhood attributed to mice but not children.

Until demanded otherwise, our society is complicit in the unchecked abuse and commodification of preborn children. Moral urgency is incumbent on us to condemn these atrocities sanctioned by the federal government’s lead medical researchers and fight to stop them. We may lose more battles before we win, but we cannot say we never knew.

VIDEO Judge bars pro-life journalist from releasing additional evidence of abortion provider’s fetal trafficking

By Samantha Kamman, The Western Journal April 14, 2021

A recent ruling from a United States district court judge has blocked the release of additional undercover videos recorded by pro-life journalist David Daleiden from the public eye.

In 2015, Daleiden and his team at the Center for Medical Progress released footage of high-ranking Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the sale of aborted body parts at National Abortion Federation conferences and trade shows.

The guerilla journalist’s team described NAF as a “criminal organization that has spent years conspiring with Planned Parenthood on how to violate federal laws on partial-birth abortion and fetal tissue sales.”

But now, it appears audiences will be prevented from viewing the “hundreds of hours of footage” exposing the abortion industry’s illegal trafficking scheme.

According to court documents filed on April 7, Judge William H. Orrick III awarded a permanent injunction to NAF, ordering that the undercover videos recorded by Daleiden are to remain sealed.

NAF had previously been granted a temporary injunction on Daleiden’s footage in 2015, but Orrick’s recent decision barred the release of additional footage indefinitely.

The Thomas More Society, a nonprofit law firm representing Daleiden, shared on its website plans to appeal Orrick’s latest decision — which the firm claims “strikes at the heart of the First Amendment.”

“If these videos involved any issue other than abortion, you would have seen them by now,” TMS vice president and senior counsel Peter Breen told The Western Journal.

“And really, the abortion industry has been successful in eroding the First Amendment rights of undercover journalists and the American people for years, and we, the people, have to push back hard on that.”

This is not the first time that Orrick has ruled against Daleiden and the organization he founded. Even though Planned Parenthood admitted under oath to the accuracy of CMP’s videos, Orrick sided with the abortion vendor in 2019, when he levied a $16 million judgment against Daleiden.

According to Breen, the First Amendment concerns questions posed by the case that could impact more than just the pro-life community.

Indeed, animal rights organizations reflected these same concerns in a friend-of-the-court submission filed last month. Activist groups ranging from Animal Outlook to PETA argued that lower court decisions against CMP could set a standard where investigative subjects can sue undercover journalists.

The First Amendment’s free speech protections, the attorney went on to say, are not limited to the “person speaking.” The amendment is also intended to protect the right of the people to receive information from the speaker.

If NAF did not want its trade show recorded, Breen said they should have taken steps to “secure it.”

Considering that NAF failed to screen Daleiden and his fake fetal procurement company properly — even going so far as to invite the pro-life journalist to several conferences — Breen questioned how the videos could be “permanently concealed consistent with the First Amendment.”

The injunction prevented him from disclosing the videos’ full content, but Breen did say they contain material that would leave many people “shocked” if they saw them.

“And certainly, there’s a lot of material in there that the people of this country deserve to see,” the attorney said.

“Not just on the issue of fetal tissue trafficking, but on other abortion-related issues and issues about how — video that will — that would impact the way we govern ourselves, the way we decide to regulate abortion and the harvesting of the body parts of aborted children.”

Still, Orrick claimed in his recent ruling that he had reviewed the videos and determined they “disclosed no criminal activity.” But the judicial decision disregards an expert report from abortionist Forrest Smith, one of the country’s longest practicing abortion providers.

Contrary to Orrick’s findings, the abortionist wrote that the footage shows Planned Parenthood staff members violating the “medical standard of care.” But Orrick chose to ignore Smith’s expertise and rely on his personal assessment of the videos instead.

“And so when you have a federal judge sitting by himself and opposing medical experts, prosecutors, other legal experts — that puts that federal judge in the position of a censure over information that the American people need to see,” Breen said.

“David Daleiden and his group are, you know, they’re not — he’s not rich people. They’re just regular folks who decided to take on a great mission, and they need the protection of the courts.”

The Thomas More Society plans to take Daleiden’s case to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and even the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary.

“And we’re fighting very hard, against both the state courts in California and the federal courts, to vindicate the work that David did so that — the people of the country who have seen David’s videos know that Planned Parenthood did some things that were heinously wrong.”

VIDEO Roe v. Wade movie uncovers lies at the root of abortion movement

April 7, 2021 By Michael Ashcraft

The Roe v. Wade movie available now on livestream is an intense, chilling and frustrating documentary about how a cabal of liberal leaders harnessed the women’s movement and complicit media to ramrod abortion through the Supreme Court using fraudulent statistics and a demonization of Catholicism.

The movie’s narrator is Dr. Bernard Nathanson, portrayed compellingly by Nick Loeb, who was an abortionist in New York City at the forefront of the push to legalize abortion on demand. Dr. Nathanson in real life recanted his support for abortion after ultrasound allowed doctors to see the fetus struggle against the abortionists’ pincers. His 1984 video “The Silent Scream” put science to use in explaining his change of position.

Stacey Dash performs poignantly the role of Dr. Mildred Jefferson, who fought abortion.

“I knew all along life exists at conception,” Dr. Bernard says in the movie. “I’d taken part in over 70,000 abortions. I knew in my heart that what I was doing was wrong, and I lied. I lied to the world, I lied to God, I lied to me. But I kept on killing until I had the courage to face the absolute horror of what I was doing.”

Dr. Bernard decided to bear the torch for abortion after he paid for his girlfriend to “terminate” her pregnancy. He teamed up with Larry Lader, the so-called Father of Abortion in America. A “disciple” of Margaret Sanger, Lader crusaded unscrupulously to push through his atheistic agenda. Both Nathanson and Lader made millions through abortions and referrals. The drive was never motivated by a woman’s right or health but by ego and greed, the movie shows.

Larry Lader and Dr. Nathanson teamed up to push abortion and make millions.

The nearly two-hour movie is unrelenting. There’s hardly a light moment. This is understandable given the gargantuan devastation abortion has perpetrated in America. Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, an estimated 64 million babies have been aborted. Every 30 seconds a baby is aborted. African American babies account for 40% of abortions. Planned Parenthood made $1.6 billion last year, according to statistics provided in the movie.

The Supreme Court justices had conflicts of interest in their families to vote on the issue.

In one grim moment, Dr. Nathanson and Lader share a joke jingle from med school:

There’s a fortune in abortion
Just a twist of the wrist and you’re through
The population of the nation
Won’t grow if it’s left up to you.
There’s a gold mine in the sex line
You never bother for the father.

Much of the movie focuses on how supreme court justices caved under pressure and voted despite having family members volunteering for Planned Parenthood, an obvious conflict of interest. It also shows how D.A. Wade’s attorney failed to call expert witnesses to discuss how life starts at conception, bungling the lawsuit in its early stages.

In a moment of sincerity, Larry Lader brags about how he manipulated the nation to get abortion through.

Another part of the movie focuses on how lawyers unethically used Norma McCorvey, under the court-shrouded name Jane Roe, to bring a case even when she was no longer pregnant. McCorvey gave birth to the child. McCorvey later turned against the pro-choice movement, favoring life.

Already, the secular media is slamming Roe v. Wade as conspiracy theory, but the movie’s website has its own fact-check page where it provides the documentation for their allegations (see God Reports’ analysis of the manipulations that got the Supreme decision through).

The movie features a star-studded cast: Jon Voight plays Justice Burger and Stacey Dash portrays Dr. Mildred Jefferson, who as founder of the National Right to Life Committee squared off against Dr. Nathanson.

In a dramatic scene that represents a turning point for Dr. Nathanson, Dr. Jefferson confronts him about the lies and rationalizations he’s used to kill unborn babies. Dr. Nathanson defends himself against her accusing questions, saying that he even aborted his own girlfriend’s baby. But the scene flashes back to the actual occurrence and shows that remorse is beginning to crack his façade.

Roe v. Wade is a must-see for Christians. It is brilliantly written and directed, though it bogs down somewhat amidst the legal wrangling. It could use a bit more of the heroic aspects in this drama, but the lack of optimism is understandable given the on-going onslaught of lies in the media and by liberal politicians perpetrating this culture of death.

Abortion Pill Reversal is Saving Babies in the Middle of Abortions, And It’s Safe for Women

NATIONAL   MICAIAH BILGER   MAR 25, 2021

A leftist investigative group funded by pro-abortion billionaire George Soros is trying to discredit the life-saving abortion pill reversal procedure.

This week, Open Democracy published an investigation that portrays the abortion pill reversal procedure as dangerous and unethical — even though it has saved more than 2,000 babies’ lives.

Its investigators called the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline from different countries around the world, posing as pregnant women seeking to reverse the effects of the abortion drug mifepristone and save their babies’ lives.

Though its investigators did not uncover anything other than what pro-lifers are openly saying, Open Democracy attacked the abortion pill reversal anyway, quoting pro-abortion politicians and abortion advocacy groups to “confirm” that pro-lifers are doing something dangerous and unethical.

And leftists publications covered it as if it were news. Vice, in its biased coverage of the investigation, slammed the abortion pill reversal procedure as a project of an “ultra-conservative Christian right group,” Heartbeat International.

It also quoted an abortion activist with the British abortion chain BPAS who attacked the procedure.

“Unfortunately, this is a tactic used by anti-abortion activists who harass women who attend our clinics for care,” BPAS communications director Katherine O’Brien told Vice. “Women in Merseyside and Birmingham have been subjected to this potentially dangerous misinformation already this year.”

O’Brien also said she was “surprised” that one of the abortion pill reversal doctors advised an investigator to go to the emergency room if she experienced complications from the reversal procedure.

“It’s not good enough to say ‘if you start bleeding, go to [the hospital] – especially in the middle of a pandemic,” O’Brien said. “The GMC [can] strike off clinicians if they’ve been found to be guilty of malpractice, and I think this is a very serious case.”

But that is exactly what abortion facilities tell women to do if they are experiencing complications from an abortion: go to the emergency room.

Open Democracy also quoted a pro-abortion politician in the UK who criticized the abortion pill reversal procedure.

“I am shocked that this is taking place in the UK,” Labour MP Nadia Whittome said. “Women should not be used as guinea pigs by anti-abortion activists. The hotline needs to be shut down immediately.”

Heartbeat International, which runs the hotline, suspected that abortion activists were up to something when they noticed an irregular increase in international calls recently. Jor-El Godsey, president of the organization, praised the hotline nurses for their kind, professional responses in the midst of the ruse.

“We know that our team only supplied evidence that we love and care for women as they seek to make the choice to rescue their baby from a chemical abortion,” he said. “The good news? Our team performed excellently.”

The abortion pill reversal procedure works by counteracting the abortion drug mifepristone, one of two drugs typically taken together to abort and then expel the unborn baby. Mifepristone makes the uterus inhospitable to new life by blocking the hormone progesterone. The reversal procedure involves giving the mother doses of progesterone to counteract the abortion drug. The reversal does not work after the mother takes the second drug, misoprostol, one or two days later.

Though abortion activists try to discredit procedure, research and medical experts indicate that it is safe and effective. According to Heartbeat International, more than 2,000 unborn babies have been saved from abortions as a result. The American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists supports it, and even a prestigious Yale School of Medicine doctor told the New York Times that the treatment “makes biological sense,” and he would recommend it to his own daughter.

“We hear from women every single day who regret taking mifepristone to end a pregnancy and desire a way to continue their pregnancies and rescue their babies,” said Christa Brown, director of medical impact at Heartbeat International. “Abortion Pill Rescue Network listens to their requests and offers women real choices even after starting a chemical abortion.”

Godsey also criticized the “duplicitous” investigators for taking up nurses’ time that could have been spent serving women who truly needed their services.

Open Democracy and others also have tried to discredit the procedure by citing a recent study by pro-abortion researchers. The study was canceled when several women experienced severe bleeding after taking the first abortion drug. Immediately, abortion activists pointed to the complications as evidence of the “dangers” of the abortion pill reversal, but the complications actually suggest that the abortion drug is what is unsafe.

According to the Catholic News Agency, Open Democracy receives donations from George Soros’s Open Society Foundations and the Ford Foundation, both of which support radical pro-abortion advocacy groups across the world.

Anyone who has taken the first abortion pill and wishes to stop the abortion is urged to immediately visit www.abortionpillreversal.com or call the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline at 877-558-0333.

VIDEO Abortion—The Issue that Will Not Die – Abortionists are spiritually blind to their evil

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.

The pro-life movement has suffered some serious political setbacks recently.

President Donald Trump was surprisingly pro-life. In contrast, Joe Biden, although he is a Catholic, has become so pro-abortion that he believes in abortion for any reason up to the very moment of birth—and that you and I should pay for it.

Kamala Harris is just a heartbeat away from the presidency. She is so pro-abortion that when she was California’s Attorney General, she threw the book (and then some) at video-whistleblowers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt who shot some undercover videos documenting the grisly practice of Planned Parenthood trafficking in baby body parts

A major reason controversy over abortion would not die because it was imposed on the American people by judicial fiat. January 22, 1973 brought us one of the worst decisions of the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade (allowing abortions in the first trimester, and its companion decision of that same day, Doe v. Bolton—allowing abortions in second and third trimesters, if doctors approve).

Since that dark day, more than 60 million babies have been killed in their mother’s womb. Where’s the most dangerous place to be in America today? In your mother’s womb. It should be the safest.

The Court has unleashed this nightmare, provoking the wrath of Almighty God against the nation that sheds innocent blood—and so much of it too. “We the people” did not get to decide this. The Court did.

Perhaps the biggest reason abortion will never die as an issue is because the truth and science are against the “pro-choice” position. It is a baby being killed. And everyone knows it.

Ultrasound images reveal the humanity of the unborn more and more. Generally, the abortion industry tries to keep pregnant women, would-be-clients, from seeing these moving images. Why? Because when the women realize the humanity of the unborn, and they don’t go through with the procedure.

Some of the strongest voices against abortion come from those who used to engage in abortion in some way or another. One of those is Carol Everett, a former part owner of abortion facilities in the Dallas area. She was on her way to becoming a millionaire by selling abortions, until Jesus changed her heart and opened her eyes.

Carol compiled the following statements from others who used to work in that field:

•Former abortionist, Anthony Levatino, M.D.: “I want the general public to know that the doctors know that this is a person, this is a baby. That this is not some kind of blob of tissue.”

•Former abortion counselor, Nita Whitten: “It’s a lie when they tell you they’re doing it to help women, because they’re not. They’re doing it for the money.”

•Former abortion counselor, Debra Henry: “We were told to find the woman’s weakness and work on it. The women were never given any alternatives. They were told how much trouble it was to have a baby.”

•Former abortionist, Joseph Randall, M.D.: “The picture of the baby on the ultrasound bothered me more than anything else. The staff couldn’t take it. Women who were having abortions were never allowed to see the ultrasound.”

•Former abortionist, David Brewer, M.D.: “My heart got callous against the fact that I was a murderer, but that baby lying in a cold bowl educated me to what abortion really was.”

In the last year, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen the contrast between tyranny and liberty from our various governors, mayors, and politicians.

There is a direct link between those magistrates who are pro-abortion and who are tyrannical in their governance. Take the governors of California, New York, and Michigan. In the case of those first two states, people are voting with their feet. They are moving out. U-Haul trucks are in great demand right now in New York City and hard to get. Of course, in New York City, they have the double whammy of a pro-abortion governor and mayor.

Meanwhile, Florida and Texas (with pro-life governors) are enjoying a great level of freedom compared to these other states, and people are fleeing from other states to live there.

Where a politician stands on the issue of abortion represents where they stand on virtually everything else—freedom, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and so on.

Our founders said in our nation’s birth certificate, the Declaration of Independence (upon which the Constitution is predicated), that the Creator has endowed us with certain inalienable rights. The first one listed is the right to life.

If you take away the right to life, as they do in abortion, you effectively remove all the other rights. May God help America to repent from abortion and put this bloody mess behind us.

Abortionists are spiritually blind to the evil they are doing: top pro-life speaker

The deadliest hoax in America exposed

Exclusive: Terry Beatley takes what she learned from the ‘Abortion King’ to battle for the unborn

Feb 22, 2021

By Terry Beatley

It’s one the greatest love stories of all time, and if made widely known, it might cut the abortion industry’s political umbilical cord and stop politicians’ exploitation of young women and the brutal death of children. It might even lead more souls to Heaven.

Yes, it’s a story of God’s divine mercy for Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D. who died on Feb. 21, 2011. This doctor regretfully cofounded NARAL Pro-Choice America and was once known as America’s “Abortion King.”

In an unplanned turn of events, I made this doctor a promise to teach America how he deceived our nation with the lie that abortion is “women’s health care” and to deliver his personal parting message across our country. In an age where science is worshiped and God is rejected by far too many, the legacy of Dr. Nathanson is for such a time as this – 2021. Science led him to the truth, and the truth led him to Jesus Christ.

Every American on both sides of the abortion issue should know this unknown piece of American history. That’s why every Tuesday evening on a Zoom conference call at 7 p.m. Eastern and Central until the end of June 2021, I’ll be equipping participants with the relevancy of Dr. Nathanson’s pro-life conversion, along with the eight points of propaganda he used in executing the deadliest American hoax.

I’ll also delve into related topics such as how Dr. Nathanson’s deception led to 1) the evisceration of parental rights, 2) a dramatic increase in breast cancer, 3) increased participation in a racist population-control plan called the “Negro Project,” and 4) the execution of a political ploy called the “Catholic Strategy” to persuade Catholics to vote for pro-abortion candidates.

God had everything to do with my life intersecting with Dr. Nathanson’s. At a prayer vigil in November 2009, I fervently asked the Lord for direction regarding what I was supposed to do with my research about Planned Parenthood, its racist agenda and how it endangers American youth.

His answer came: “Go and interview Dr. Nathanson. …” I was surprised and troubled by this idea. I knew the doctor’s history as the cofounder of pro-choice politics who had become 100% pro-life, but I couldn’t imagine why God would direct me to interview him or why the doctor would agree.

I called his home in Manhattan. His wife answered and informed me her husband was 83 years old and very frail with terminal cancer. For over a year he had denied all interview requests. Instructing me to put my request in writing and fax it to her, she promised to present it to him but warned not to get my hopes up.

To my surprise, and hers too, Dr. Nathanson agreed. I flew to New York on Dec. 1, 2009 – a day that changed the rest of my life.

I sat with him for one hour asking questions. Listening to him lament about his crimes against humanity, I sensed his remorse as incredibly authentic. It was nearly tangible.

My heart filled with compassion for this old dying man who had turned his life over to Jesus Christ 13 years earlier, on Dec. 8, 1996. He had been carrying his cross ever since, and he knew he was leaving behind a culture of death.

I felt compelled to make him an offer.

Dr. Nathanson, … if you have something to tell America, I promise I will carry it across our nation for you.

He seriously contemplated his answer.

Yes, yes I do. Continue teaching the strategy of how I deceived America, but also deliver this special message. Tell America that the cofounder of NARAL says to ‘Love one another.’ Abortion is not love. Stop the killing. The world needs more love. I’m all about love now.

Then his eyes slightly lit up with what I deemed as hope. Hope that Americans would one day be liberated by the truth he was leaving behind. I reached over and shook Dr. Nathanson’s hand. I knew not how or when, but I promised him I’d get the job done.

As part of fulfilling the promise, I worked toward defeating Virginia’s most pro-abortion, anti-parental rights state senator who had sold out to the abortion lobby years earlier. It worked.

Then, I started the nonprofit educational organization called Hosea Initiative, in 2011. In 2016, my book, “What If We’ve Been Wrong? Keeping my promise to America’s ‘Abortion King,'” was published which sent me on a speaking circuit in over 20 states, including the Walk for Life in San Francisco. Then, I signed a movie deal for a feature film based on my book and Dr. Nathanson’s life from childhood to conversion.

Later, the Hosea team developed two educational tools: 1) high school curriculum named “Becoming a Witness for Life,” which draws young people into the life and legacy of Dr. Nathanson and teaches the impact of competing worldviews, and 2) the FACT-CHECK booklet, “Who was America’s ‘Abortion King’?” which teaches the pro-life conversion story of Dr. Nathanson and his stealthy eight-point strategy of deception.

Now that everything is in place, I’m eager to provide weekly live training to equip the 75,000,000 people who voted pro-life in November 2020 with the knowledge of how to use the FACT-CHECK booklet. Why? Because we have to show God we desire a pro-life America. This requires winning more hearts and minds to support a culture of life. There is no better way to do this than learning how and why Dr. Nathanson lied, and then, boldly, confidently share it with others.

We have learned at Hosea Initiative that when pro-choice minded people are presented with these irrefutable historical facts, they begin to question their pro-abortion position.

America is in need of a true love story of God’s divine mercy and redemption. Join me on Tuesday nights, and invite your friends.

Below are the Zoom links to the call beginning Tuesday, Feb. 23:

7 p.m. Eastern meeting
Meeting ID: 861 5944 8605
Passcode: 642730

7 p.m. Central meeting

Terry Beatley is the author of “What If We’ve Been Wrong? Keeping my promise to America’s ‘Abortion King'” and founder and president of the Hosea Initiative.


200 GOP congressmen slam Democrats, say they’ll never vote for tax-funded abortions

Radical liberals, led by flip-flopper Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, want to repeal the Hyde Amendment and fund abortion worldwide.

Wed Jan 27, 2021

By David McLoone

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 27, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Two hundred Republican Congressmen vowed in a letter addressed to U.S. House and Senate leadership their “unified opposition to Congressional Democrats’ efforts to repeal the Hyde Amendment and other current-law, pro-life appropriations provisions.”

The Hyde Amendment prohibits the use of most federal funds for abortions, except in some limited circumstances. Although Joe Biden was originally in favor of the Hyde Amendment, even as recently as 2019, he has dramatically altered his position to align with the Democratic Party platform, which has promised to repeal the amendment throughout the 2020 presidential campaign and, indeed, since taking the presidency. The Democrats officially support unlimited abortion on demand, funded by taxpayers. Biden and Kamala Harris marked the anniversary of Roe v. Wade by pledging to make abortion available to “everyone.”

The letter noted that Biden flip-flopped on the issue of tax-funded abortions “(as) recent as June 2019,” until which time he “supported the Hyde Amendment and acknowledged that it works harmoniously with federal funding for women’s health care.”

Biden justified his change of heart by saying, “If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s zip code.”

The 200 signatories taking a stand against the Democrats and supporting the amendment, on the other hand, have the support of the public. “Polling indicates that repealing the Hyde Amendment is opposed by most of the American public.” They added that “Congressional Democrats now seek to further erode public trust in government by ignoring mainstream public opinion in favor of placating the radical Left.”

“Repealing these pro-life provisions would destroy nearly half a century of bipartisan consensus,” the letter read. “Each year since 1976, Congress has included Hyde protections in annually enacted appropriations. No president in American history has ever vetoed an appropriations bill due to its inclusion of the Hyde Amendment.”

Appealing to the great benefit of maintaining the legislation, the Republican Study Committee, responsible for the letter, wrote that the “Hyde Amendment alone has saved the lives of over 2 million innocent babies and continues to protect the conscience rights of a vast majority of Americans opposed to publicly funded abortions.”

As a result, the signatories say they “cannot allow the Hyde Amendment and other important pro-life safeguards to be decimated by Congressional Democrats. Accordingly, we pledge to vote against any government funding bill that eliminates or weakens the Hyde Amendment or other current-law, pro-life appropriations provisions.”

Rep. Jim Banks, R-Indiana, chairman of the committee, pointed the finger directly at Democrats in a statement, claiming that they have turned their backs on conscientious Americans who oppose the use of their taxes for funding abortions.

“Despite decades of consensus on this issue, radical Democrats have signaled they no longer have an interest in protecting the conscience rights of millions of Americans who do not want their hard-earned money used to pay for abortions. My colleagues and I demand congressional leaders protect the ban on taxpayer-funded abortions and save the Hyde Amendment.”
