Hobby Lobby Asks Supreme Court to Stop Obama Admin From Forcing it to Obey HHS Mandate
Christian craft store Hobby Lobby today filed papers with the Supreme Court asking it to take it case against the Obama administration, which is attempting to make it comply with the HHS mandate that compels religious companies to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs for their employees.
In July, a federal court granted Hobby Lobby a preliminary injunction against the HHS abortion-drug mandate. The injunction prevented the Obama administration from enforcing the mandate against the Christian company, but the Obama administration appealed that ruling recently. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/21/hobby-lobby-asks-supreme-court-to-stop-obama-admin-from-forcing-it-to-obey-hhs-mandate/
311 Babies Saved From Abortion so Far During 40 Days for Life Campaign
Almost four weeks into this 40 Days for Life campaign, God has greatly blessed many people! So far, we have reports of 311 babies saved from abortion (that we know of) all across the world!
Wow! said Adri in Paarl. We are astounded at Gods faithfulness! We had an amazing campaign thus far and God saved three unborn babies lives. All glory to Him! http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/21/311-babies-saved-from-abortion-so-far-during-40-days-for-life-campaign/
Americans Deserve to Know if Their Health Care Plans are Paying for Abortions
Americans deserve to know if their health plan will be subsiding a culture of death.
As the Obamacare exchanges have gone live this month, it has become evident that it is nearly impossible for individuals seeking exchange plans to identify which, if any, plans on their state exchange exclude abortion.
Teens With Down Syndrome Voted Homecoming King and Queen
October is Down Syndrome Awareness month and heartfelt stories about people with Down Syndrome are being shared across the Internet as a way of fostering more respect for human life. From Florida comes another smile-inducing story this time about two teens whose peers voted them Homecoming King and Queen.
When you stop to consider the fact that as many as 80 or 90 percent of babies diagnosed as having Down Syndrome before birth become victims of abortions, the realization occurs quickly that Semone Adkins and Travjuan Bubba Hunter are exceptions to the rule and are obviously enjoying a fulfilling life that many babies with the condition dont get to experience. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/21/teens-with-down-syndrome-voted-homecoming-king-and-queen/
Planned Parenthood Uses Scarlett Johansson, Aisha Tyler to Promote Obamacare
The Planned Parenthood abortion business, which has made more than $1 million promoting Obamacare to its customers, is now partnering with Hollywood celebrities to promote the abortion-funding government health care scheme.
The partnership has Planned Parenthood teaming up with long-time pro-abortion supporter Scarlett Johansson as well as Aisha Tyler and Gabrielle Union to record phone messages to encourage its customers to sign up. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/21/planned-parenthood-uses-scarlett-johansson-aisha-tyler-to-promote-obamacare/
Clinic Gets Approval to Screen for Autism in Unborn Children, Could Lead to Abortions
A fertility clinic in Australia has been given permission by local authorities to perform sex-selection of human embryos for families at a high risk of having an autistic child. Such testing could lead to abortions of unborn babies who testing show may have the genetic makeup that would include autism.
While there is no genetic test that specifically can isolate autism in unborn children, the screening is a sex-selection process because boys are four times more likely to have autism than girls. According to a report in the Australian newspaper, the test will be done on pre-implantation embryos presumably created via in-vitro fertilization. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/21/clinic-gets-approval-to-screen-for-autism-in-unborn-children-could-lead-to-abortions/
Father Fights to Save His Baby From Abortion After Seeing Pro-Lifers at Clinic
This week Planned Parenthood wished itself a Happy 97th Birthday. Its Facebook page and Twitter feed featured the image of a single candle, atop a frosted and sprinkled cupcake, with the following words: 97 years ago the first Planned Parenthood clinic opened in Brooklyn,New York. Today, we celebrate the 3 million patients that come to us every year for high-quality, affordable health care.
The American Life League took the meme head-on, with a counter-candle and a counterfactual of its own: Planned Parenthood is celebrating its 97th birthday. But the 6,300,000 babies aborted in its facilities wont even have one. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/21/father-fights-to-save-his-baby-from-abortion-after-seeing-pro-lifers-at-clinic/
