Girl Scouts USA Threatens LifeNews After Reporting Its Link to Planned Parenthood
During the last two weeks, LifeNews has brought international attention to the link between the Girl Scouts and the Planned Parenthood abortion business and the national boycott of Girl Scouts cookies sponsored by pro-life groups.
The pro-life movement has been concerned for a number of years about the ties between the Girl Scouts and the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Although the Girl Scout organization maintains that it takes no position on the issue of abortion, parents, churches, and pro-life activists have long complained of the pro-abortion slant of the Girl Scouts resources, role models, and affiliations. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/17/girl-scouts-usa-threatens-lifenews-after-reporting-its-link-to-planned-parenthood/
North Koreas Kim Jong-un Forces Women to Drown Their Babies, Have Abortions
The Washington Times reports today February 17th that a new U.N. Report, on North Korea, alleges that the Kim Jong-un regime has been guilty of crimes against humanity including forcing women to abort their babies or killing them after birth. The Washington Times article follows:
The North Korean regime is committing systematic and widespread human rights abuses, including forcing mothers to drown their newborn babies and setting up secret prison camps, a United Nations report released Monday found. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/17/north-koreas-kim-jong-un-forces-women-to-drown-their-babies-have-abortions/
Mom Expecting Identical Triplets Gets Surprise When Doctor Shouts, More Feet!
Kimberly Fugate was expecting identical triplets. After a grueling labor process and the birth of three children, Fugate was ready for some much-needed rest. But rest would have to wait as the doctor shouted, More feet!
They had got the three out and they said, More feet, the Mississippi mother said. Fugate is now the proud mother of a statistical improbability four identical newborn babies. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/17/mom-expecting-identical-triplets-gets-surprise-when-doctor-shouts-more-feet/
Abortion Methods: The Gruesome Reality of How Babies Are Killed in Abortion
[WARNING: As the title implies, this blog post is highly disturbing. You should not read it if you have a weak stomach.]
Most people who see nothing wrong with abortion have that belief because they dont think an unborn baby is a person. They dont even like the term unborn baby because it lends to the idea that whats in the womb is a person. They usually stick with the term fetus because the emotional response generated from discussion of killing a fetus is more palatable than that of killing a baby. But even if they were right about the absence of humanity in a fetus, it doesnt change the fact that aborting a fetus is a horrific, senseless tragedy. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/17/abortion-methods-the-gruesome-reality-of-how-babies-are-killed-in-abortion/
Ex-Planned Parenthood Staffer: Mom Scheduled Daughters Abortion, She Blindsided Her Own Daughter
In a recent article in The Criterion, Natalie Hoefer interviewed a nurse who worked at Planned Parenthood but left the abortion business with the help of clinic-worker-turned-activist Abby Johnson and local pro-lifers. The nurse, Marianne Anderson, bravely decided to come forward with her story because, as she says, she wanted to right a wrong. She credits the sidewalk counselors that helped her leave with giving her the courage to speak out about her experiences.
I felt so much love and acceptance in that room [when I first spoke publicly, at Right to Life of Indianapolis "Celebrate Life" dinner]. I wandered around there looking at how happy the people were, how much theyre really trying to help other people. I thought, I want to be a part of that. I thought I could start by telling my story, then maybe later I could be a sidewalk counselor. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/17/ex-planned-parenthood-staffer-mom-scheduled-daughters-abortion-she-blindsided-her-own-daughter/

Bolivia Says No to Abortion: Law Recognizes Right to Life From Conception
