King James Version (KJV)
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Read the statistics of the reasons that women have abortions. View the video. Read the Pro-Life News Report. Ask yourself: “How can a Christian vote for a candidate that endorses the killing of innocent babies, either through abortion or by allowing a “born-alive” baby to die? Remember. It’s not a choice, it’s a child, an innocent child, a child which deserves to live.
Reasons given for having abortions in the United States
by Wm. Robert Johnston
last updated 26 August 2012
Summary: This report reviews available statistics regarding reasons given for obtaining abortions in the United States, including surveys by the Alan Guttmacher Institute and data from seven state health/statistics agencies that report relevant statistics (Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Utah). The official data imply that AGI claims regarding “hard case” abortions are inflated by roughly a factor of three. Actual percentage of U.S. abortions in “hard cases” are estimated as follows: in cases of rape, 0.3%; in cases of incest, 0.03%; in cases of risk to maternal life, 0.1%; in cases of risk to maternal health, 1%; and in cases of fetal health issues, 0.5%. About 98% of abortions in the United States are elective, including socio-economic reasons or for birth control. This includes perhaps 30% for primarily economic reasons.

Parents Arrested After Taking Raped 11-Year-Old Daughter for Abortion
Parents of an 11-year-old girl in West Virginia have been arrested after arranging for an abortion following a case of pregnancy after possible incest. West Virginia State Police say they consented to the abortions and, the abortion clinic in question didn’t report the abortion to authorities.
Michael and Amanda Adkins were arrested Friday night on charges of child neglect causing the risk of injury. While some licensed medical professionals were involved in getting information to authorities, WSAZ indicates the abortion clinic in Charleston that did an abortion did not report the clear case of statutory rape. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/parents-arrested-after-taking-raped-11-year-old-daughter-for-abortion/
Doctors Use 3-D Ultrasound to Detect Unborn Baby’s Heart Defect, Save Her Life
Doctors in Florida are using a high-tech method of detecting problems in unborn children and correcting them as soon as possible. While we often focus on heart disease in adults — sometimes the tiniest of hearts have problems. Now, doctors are diagnosing problems even before some babies are born.

Teacher Battling Breast Cancer Gives Birth to Healthy Baby Girl
Although doctors sometimes suggest an abortion when a woman battling cancer is pregnant, Briana Dannen and her husband Brian decided not to have an abortion and to carry the pregnancy to term to give birth to their healthy baby. Studies show women don’t need to have an abortion and can safely seek chemo treatment during pregnancy.
Despite the struggle with breast cancer Briana faces, she gave birth to Harper June Dannen. The Sherwood, Oregon teacher was diagnosed with cancer about 20 weeks ago but gave birth Monday afternoon. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/teacher-battling-breast-cancer-gives-birth-to-healthy-baby-girl/
Man Almost Died After Losing Health Insurance Due to Obamacare
The pro-life movement raised the alarm during the health care debate that adopting Obamacare would lead to rationing of health care in a way that could cost patients their very lives. That’s just what happened to Lenny Hubbs.
Hubbs lost his health insurance due to Obamacare and is now facing over $100,000 in medical bills that his insurance plan would otherwise have paid. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/man-almost-died-after-losing-health-insurance-due-to-obamacare-has-100k-in-hospital-bills/
Moving Video Pays Tribute to Man Who Drowned Trying to Save His Son With Down Syndrome
A new very moving video pays tribute to a man who drowned while trying to save his disabled son, who has Down Syndrome.
vanderwoudeThomas Vander Woude Sr. died in 2008 after leaping into a septic tank to save his youngest son, Joseph, who had fallen in. According to sources at the time, Thomas, 66, allowed himself to sink beneath the sewage while holding 20-year-old Joseph above his head until rescuers arrived. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/moving-video-pays-tribute-to-man-who-drowned-trying-to-save-his-son-with-down-syndrome/
Women’s College Allows Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz CEO to Give Commencement
One of the top women’s colleges in the nation thinks the CEO of America’s biggest abortion business is the best candidate to give the commencement address to this Spring to graduating students.
Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, will deliver the keynote address at Barnard College’s 122nd Commencement on May 18. Richards will address approximately 600 members of the Class of 2014 and receive the Barnard Medal of Distinction, the College’s highest honor, together with three other honorees. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/womens-college-allows-planned-parenthood-abortion-biz-ceo-to-give-commencement/
Pro-Life Organizations Stand United to Free Justina Pelletier
Making decisions for a child’s well-being is arguably a parent’s most important responsibility — especially when that child faces a life-threatening disease. According to the Patient Advocate Foundation, seeking a second opinion regarding a serious medical condition is not only a reasonable course of action, but commendable. However, for the Pelletier family, what started as a simple follow-up inquiry regarding their 15-year-old daughter Justina’s health has turned into a 12-month-long nightmare.
In January 2013, after Justina developed a severe bout with the flu, a medical team at Tufts Medical Center in Connecticut, which had been treating Justina’s mitochondrial disease for years, recommended that the Pelletiers visit an expert gastroenterologist at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH). http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/pro-life-organizations-stand-united-to-free-justina-pelletier/
Priests for Life Tells Supreme Court: Don’t Let Obama Admin Force Us to Obey HHS Mandate

When Will the United Methodist Church Extend Compassion to the Unborn?
My Saturday morning began with a chilling experience. I am not referring to the colder-than-expected DC weather (coming from Chicago, I had hoped for better) nor to my being an observer at the board meeting of the United Methodist Church’s controversial lobby office (which has its own spiritual challenges). http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/united-methodist-church-still-endorses-abortion-ignores-biblical-teachings/
Planned Parenthood Lies: Only 4 Million Have Obamacare, Claims it Registered 27 Million
Be in the pro-life movement for a while and you understand that those at the top of the pro-abortion movement tend to not really think truth or civility is relevant to debate. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/planned-parenthood-lies-only-4-million-have-obamacare-claims-it-registered-27-million/
Indiana Awards Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz That Hid Statutory Rape
Pro-life advocates in Indiana are upset that the State of Indiana has given an award to the head of the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which was shown as willing to hide statutory rape in an undercover investigation a few years ago. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/state-of-indiana-awards-planned-parenthood-abortion-biz-that-hid-statutory-rape/
Man Sexually Assaults 13-Year-Old, Gives her $700 for Abortion to Hide Crime

I’m a Pro-Life Lobbyist in an Auditorium Full of Pro-Abortion Feminists at the UN

They Told Me Pro-Lifers Should Support Sex Ed, Then They Wouldn’t Let Me Join Their Sex Ed Club
As a pro-life activist who supports comprehensive sex education, reliable contraception, and pro-life legislation to reduce the number of abortions performed, I was deeply disheartened to learn that my university’s sex education club, which is officially connected to my university’s student health center, is officially pro-choice. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/they-told-me-as-a-pro-lifer-i-should-support-sex-ed-then-they-kicked-me-out-of-their-sex-ed-club/
Missouri Down to Just One Abortion Business After Planned Parenthood Closes
The abortion business can be very lucrative. Planned Parenthood alone brings in over $150 million from abortion revenues – as much as half of its patient charges. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/11/missouri-down-to-just-one-abortion-business-after-planned-parenthood-closes/
Supreme Court Asked to Review Suspension of Phill Kline’s License for Investigating Planned Parenthood

Mad Scientists Push Self-Breeding and Polyamorous Genetic-Related Babies
