Obama Admin Had Attorneys During Shutdown Push HHS Abortion Mandate
The state of politics in the 21st century has led most Americans to expect both sides of the aisle to use the government shutdown as a political pawn. But the Obama Administration has taken it a step farther, using the shutdown as a means to further advance its agenda of trampling the rights of conscientious business owners and entrepreneurs.
To be clear, front and center in the budget shutdown struggle was the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
Baby Survives Failed Chemical Abortion, Doctors Said He Wouldnt Live
What a story out of the Namibian newspaper in Southwest Africa. Under the headline Miracle baby survives abortion, we learn from Clemans Miyanicwe that doctors told Rebeka Vandueruru Tjombe that her unborn baby could not survive and ordered the mother to take abortion pills. (What kind of pills is never described.)
The husband, Jephta Mooka Kaevara, told Miyanicwe that his wife texted him with the bad news and he went to the hospital where, he alleges, the doctor refused to tell him about his wifes condition. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/17/baby-survives-failed-chemical-abortion-doctors-said-he-wouldnt-live/
Dead Newborn Baby Found in Bag After Girl Caught Shoplifting at Manhattan Victorias Secret
After staff at Manhattans Victorias Secret thought two teenage girls were shoplifting, authorities inspected their bags and found the body of a dead newborn baby in one of their bags. The security guard inspecting the bags reported it to the NYPD.
From a story with more details: The girls, both 17, were stopped by the stores loss prevention officer. It was then that one of the girls admitted she had a baby in the bag, CBS 2 reported. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/17/dead-newborn-baby-found-in-bag-after-girl-caught-shoplifting-at-manhattan-victorias-secret/
White House: No Plans to Fire Kathleen Sebelius Despite Massive Obamacare Failure
The White House is standing by pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, saying there are no plans to fire her despite the abject failure that is Obamacare. A campaign to fire Sebelius has been growing since the abortive launch of the Obamacare exchange web sites.
From a report in The Hill: The White House stood by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Tuesday, as Republicans called for her resignation over the botched rollout of ObamaCare. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/17/white-house-no-plans-to-fire-kathleen-sebelius-despite-massive-obamacare-failure/
Dear Abby Defends Mom Buying Condoms for Her Teen Daughter and Her Friends
A Dear Abby column this week featured a concerned mom who had learned that the condoms she was buying for her 17-year-old daughter were being given to her daughters friends.
The mom, who was proud that her daughter felt comfortable enough to confide in her, was concerned about the price of supplying multiple sexually-active teenagers with condoms, but alas, she considered that perhaps this expense was worthwhile if I can help to prevent an unwanted pregnancy. The question, from Safe Sex Advocate in Iliinois, went like this: http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/17/dear-abby-defends-mom-buying-condoms-for-her-teen-daughter-and-her-friends/
Mother Pre-Pays $1,575 for 21-Week Abortion, Pro-Life Prayer Warriors Change Her Mind
Late-term abortion received a fair amount of US media attention earlier this year coverage centered around the brutal practices and murder trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
Gosnell was convicted of murder. But the ugly practice of late-term abortion continues. And one Texas mom is very thankful for the volunteers who were outside praying when she recently went in for her $1,575 late-term abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/17/mother-pre-pays-1575-for-21-week-abortion-pro-life-prayer-warriors-change-her-mind/
Open Letter to Mom Who Killed Her Unborn Baby Because She Had Cystic Fibrosis
My heart is broken for you, Addie Morfoot. I can feel the regret, the pain, the torture in the words you shared at Salon.com this week. The sheer thought of what you did to your undoubtedly beautiful, smart, and resilient daughter makes my stomach turn and sends chills through my body a body which carries a defective cystic fibrosis gene. Just like yours.
And just like your Annie, my Peanut has cystic fibrosis. I can only imagine what the thought of your actions must do to you.http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/17/open-letter-to-mom-who-killed-her-unborn-baby-because-she-had-cystic-fibrosis/

Once-Paralyzed Man Given New Lease on Life Thanks to Adult Stem Cells
Here is the latest in the many stories weve carried about the remarkable improvements in patients who have been treated not with embryonic stem cells (there have been no such improvements) but with ethically unobjectionable adult stem cells which are obtained from bone marrow, blood, fat tissue, umbilical cord blood, and other tissues after birth. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/17/once-paralyzed-man-given-new-lease-on-life-thanks-to-adult-stem-cells/

The Abortion Industry Puts the Con in Population Control
Control. Someone has it. And, too often, its not you. We live in a culture that has disdain for self-control, unfortunately allowing all kinds of forces to remotely control so many aspects of our lives and the very definition of our humanity. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/17/the-abortion-industry-puts-the-con-in-population-control/
