Unethical Study Manufactures Results

The truth has been twisted to such a degree
it more resembles a pretzel than a research finding.

Abortion-Pill-Rescue

This is a hard hitting expose of a study done on abortion pill reversal.  It’s authored by Bradley Mattes of Life Issues Institute and uncovers the pro-abortion agenda of the researchers.

The chemical abortion pill is growing in use and may soon outpace surgical abortion. This evolving trend demonstrates why the Abortion Pill Reversal network of medical professionals is vital to saving babies and protecting their mothers.

A so-called study was underway to examine the effectiveness of progesterone to reverse a chemical abortion when a mother changed her mind. However, critics say its unspoken goal was to actually undermine the progesterone protocol.

But the process backfired and further underscored the need for added protections for women subjected to chemical abortion.

The study’s credibility was suspect from the start and many expected its conclusion would result in a preconceived notion that abortion pill reversal is “junk science.” Consider the bias of its authors. All five are dedicated pro-abortion advocates. Mitchell D. Creinin, is an abortionist and paid consultant with Danco Laboratories which manufactures mifepristone, the chemical abortion pill. Laura Dalton is an employee of Planned Parenthood of Arizona. Collectively, Planned Parenthood is the largest chain of abortion facilities in America and the most aggressive lobbyist for extreme pro-abortion laws on both the federal and state level. Melody Y. Hou, Rachel Steward, and Melissa J. Chen have all been or are currently abortionists.

The study’s goal was to enroll 40 pregnant women who had previously decided to have a surgical abortion. After consenting to a chemical abortion and receiving the mifepristone, the women were selected randomly to be given progesterone to attempt reversing the chemical abortion or a placebo. Those whose babies were still alive after two weeks were promised a surgical abortion.

The purpose of this ethically bankrupt research was to determine if a drug effectively saves the lives of babies, and if so, they guarantee mothers a dead child in the end.
After 12 women had been enrolled, researchers abruptly ended the study because of serious health concerns for those participating. Three women experienced “severe hemorrhage requiring ambulance transport to hospital.” One lost enough blood to require a transfusion.

A critical distinction that most media outlets have not made or highlighted is that two of the three women who experienced medical emergencies were given the placebo – that is, the only active drug they received and were suffering from was the mifepristone chemical abortion drug. One had been given progesterone. The potential of lethal blood loss has been an ever-present concern with chemical abortion. The study’s hasty demise underscores the need for the FDA to more closely scrutinize Danco’s death drug.

Pro-Lifers Attend Annual Peace in the Womb and Christmas Caroling at Warminster Planned Parenthood

 

Warminster Peace in WombChristmas Caroling at Peace in the Womb Event, December 13, 2019, Warminster Planned Parenthood 

On Friday morning in near freezing temperatures, 35 pro-lifers gathered in front of Warminster Planned Parenthood.  They came to the annual Peace in the Womb event to  observe the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and pray for an end to abortion.

Sandy Slater, president of Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition, began the event by introducing Pastor Chuck Wilson of New Hope Community Church.

Pastor Chuck opened with a prayer followed by a powerful, encouraging message.  He spoke about the importance of intercessory prayer in defeating abortion, especially at abortion sites. He mentioned the impact the movie Unplanned had on changing hearts and minds about the killing of unborn babies . Prayer warriors standing in front of abortion sites has resulted in many women choosing life for their babies. He also shared the satanic influence that is behind the abortion industry.  Pastor Wilson stressed that our presence and prayers are essential in defeating the evil of abortion.

Christmas Caroling brought to mind the Biblical account of Jesus’ birth: a miraculous ‘unexpected’ pregnancy, Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem, angels announcing the Savior’s birth to shepherds, the joy and holiness of that silent night.  Singing these joyful hymns about the sacred birth of Jesus was in sharp contrast to the evil of killing unborn babies taking place inside Warminster Planned Parenthood.

Longtime pro-lifer, Patrick Stanton, spoke about the importance of our presence and prayers at Warminster Planned Parenthood.  His late father, John Stanton, was known as the father of the pro-life movement in Southeast Pennsylvania.  Patrick shared the great need for intercessors and sidewalk counselors at two abortion sites in center city Philadelphia.  Mike McMonagle of the Pro-Life Coalition of PA urged everyone to become informed about pending legislation on pro-life issues.

Participants were invited for refreshments and fellowship at the VFW Hall following the close of the program.  This event was sponsored locally by the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition  and nationally by the Pro-Life Action League.

Another Peace in the Womb event took place at Planned Parenthood at Comly Road and Roosevelt Blvd. in NE Philly on Saturday, November 14th. They stood in the rain as they prayed and sang Christmas Carols in celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Anita Flynn, Voices for Life blogger, reported there were 21 pro-lifers who participated.

Below are photos of the gathering and a sign with a powerful pro-life message.

Supreme Court Lets Kentucky Law Requiring Ultrasounds Before Abortions Stand

“Modern ultrasound technology opens an unprecedented window into the womb, providing indisputable evidence of the humanity of the unborn child.”

A great victory handed down by the US Supreme Court in favor of a Kentucky law is recounted by Samuel Smith, a reporter for Christian Post.  

The U.S. Supreme Court Monday rejected a case brought against a Kentucky law requiring mothers to view an ultrasound and listen to audio of their child’s heartbeat before going through with their abortions.

The nation’s high court offered no reasoning for its decision to let stand a Kentucky law that has been blocked by courts since it was enacted in 2017. But the court’s decision paves the way for the law to finally be enacted.

The law requires mothers to look at an ultrasound of their child while a doctor describes the ultrasound to the patient. Doctors are also required to play audio of the fetal heartbeat.

“We are encouraged by today’s Supreme Court decision that lets Kentucky’s pro-life ultrasound law stand,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the national pro-life lobbying group Susan B. Anthony List, said in a statement. “Modern ultrasound technology opens an unprecedented window into the womb, providing indisputable evidence of the humanity of the unborn child.”

Abortion rights supporters chided the court’s decision. The law was challenged by Kentucky’s only abortion clinic, EMW Women’s Clinic of Louisville, which was represented by the American Civil Liberties Union.  The ACLU contends that the court’s decision “allows extreme political interference in the doctor-patient relationship.” The ACLU claims that the law violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

“Kentucky’s law is just one example of the ways politicians punish and stigmatize people who have already decided to have an abortion,” the ACLU tweeted. “Abortion is a right — and it’s legal in all 50 states.”

The pro-abortion advocacy group NARAL argued that the law “shames women for accessing basic care.”

“Mandating transvaginal ultrasounds for women seeking abortion care is not only medically unnecessary — it’s violently invasive,” NARAL wrote in a tweet.
Proponents of the legislation argue that patients looking to abort have the right to “informed consent.”

“Women facing an unexpected pregnancy deserve to have as much medically and technically accurate information as possible when they are making what could be the most important decision of their life,” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said in a statement.

Dannenfelser contends that the “abortion industry has proven incapable of policing itself and will stop at nothing to keep vulnerable women in the dark for the sake of profit.”
Pro-life activist Lila Rose, the founder of Live Action, tweeted that many women “reject the violence of abortion” when they have the “chance to see the humanity of their child [and] hear their heartbeat.”

The court’s refusal to take up the case leaves in place a ruling by a three-judge bench of the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last April upholding the constitutionality of the Kentucky law.

The appeals court overturned a lower court ruling declaring the law to be unconstitutional. The opinion by the Sixth Circuit was written by Trump appointee John Bush.

Although the case sets no precedents, it does imply that the court’s conservative majority could be inclined to grant the ability to states to regulate the abortion industry.
In October, the Supreme Court agreed to take up a case against a Louisiana law requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. Critics say the law will leave only one authorized abortion clinic in the state.

“We hope the Court will render another just decision in the case of Louisiana’s law requiring reasonable standards to protect women’s health and safety,” Dannenfelser said.

FALSE: “Thousands of Women Died in Back Alley Abortions Before Roe v. Wade”

abortionhurtswomen4

The following article was published by Right to Life of Michigan and posted  on th Life News website.  It highlights  just one of the many lies that Planned Parenthood has disseminated since Margaret Sanger founded this diabolical organization.

So much of the abortion debate is based on myths, bad assumptions, bad logic, or outright gaslighting through deception. For the rest of 2019 we will highlight one common abortion myth every month.

2: Millions of women died in back alley abortions.

The bottom line: Using false numbers and tactics of fearmongering to keep abortion legal does not benefit women.

Comments made this year by Leana Wen, the former president of Planned Parenthood, are an example of this myth in action. She stated:

“Before Roe v. Wade, thousands of women died every year.”

The Washington Post, which is by no means a prolife outlet, pointed out the falsity of such comments: “Even given the fuzzy nature of the data and estimates, there is no evidence that in the years immediately preceding the Supreme Court’s decision, thousands of women died every year in the United States from illegal abortions.”

Back-alley abortions were not as prevalent as they were claimed to be. Frightful stories of coat-hanger abortions are used by pro-abortion advocates to fearmonger and persuade public opinion in favor of keeping abortion legal. Abortion supporters frequently argue that having abortion be “safe, legal, and rare” would be better than the occurrence of dangerous, illegal, and back-alley operations.

Bernard Nathanson, a former abortionist and the co-founder of the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL Pro-Choice America), was an early propagator of the back-alley abortion myth. Concerning the use of statistics of 5,000 to 10,000 deaths a year, Nathanson stated,

“I confess that I knew the figures were totally false, and I suppose the others did too if they stopped to think of it. But in the ‘morality’ of our revolution, it was a useful figure, widely accepted, so why go out of our way to correct it with honest statistics? The overriding concern was to get the laws eliminated, and anything within reason that had to be done was permissible.”

The mental image of abortions accomplished with a coat hanger or the use of other unsanitary and gruesome manners to rid the child from the mother’s womb are useful to move audiences. However, those were generally not the practices used in the illegal abortions obtained before 1973. Nor was it unlicensed, ill-equipped quacks who were performing abortions prior to 1973. In 1960, Mary Calderone, a former medical director of Planned Parenthood, stated that nearly 90% of illegal abortions were performed by physicians in good-standing.

Abortions were not safe for women before 1973, yet neither have they been safe for women after the nationwide legalization of abortion. When considering historical and current abortion data, the logic of legalizing a practice in order to make it safe is empty.

Statistics reported by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) demonstrate that fatalities of women who received illegal abortions do not add up to the thousands or millions of deaths claimed by pro-choice advocates. In 1972, the year before the legalization of abortion in the United States, the CDC reported that 39 women died from illegal abortion and 24 died from legal abortion.

In 1973, the CDC reported 19 women died from illegal abortion procedures and 25 women died due to legal abortion procedures. Legalizing abortion did not lead to a dramatic drop in women’s deaths. In fact, the most impressive drop in abortion mortality was connected to the invention and widespread distribution of antibiotics, which occurred years prior to the legalization of abortion. Before antibiotics, childbirth and any type of surgery was extremely dangerous relative to today.

Life News article continues here

Blogger’s note:  In an adult evening college class, the subject of abortion was brought up for debate.  A young man stated that prior to Roe v Wade, 25,000 women died in back alley abortions.  I didn’t challenge him on that figure since I had no knowledge of the veracity of his statistic.  In a moment of clarity, I spoke up and told him his figures were wrong.  He asked why his number of deaths was incorrect.  I said,  “It was 50,000, not 25,000….you forgot the babies.  Needless to say he was speechless.

 

 

 

 

Paramedic Becomes Pro-Life After Viewing Post Abortion Body of Unborn Baby

Below is a story of how one person’s experience forever reinforced his belief in the sanctity of life.  

unborn_baby

The incident you are about to read is true.  It took place in a hospital after the infamous US Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade in January 1973.  It involves, a young Philadelphia Firefighter who was training to become a paramedic.

A segment of his three-month paramedic course was a rotation in obstetrics.  Part of this training included how to deliver a baby.  He observed how doctors assisted women during the birth process.

While he was in the delivery area, he walked into a side room.  In that small area, he observed a shocking scene.  Laying on a metal counter top was the fully formed body of a dead baby.  He described the baby’s skin as reddish in color. He didn’t understand how this baby died and what caused the crimson color of the baby’s skin. He then left the side room and asked a staff member how did the baby die. The person told him the baby was aborted.

Since that time, this incident has been etched in his memory.  It was years later that he shared this traumatic story with me.  As one who has been a long time pro-life activist, I knew why the baby’s skin was red.  I told him, since this was a late-term abortion, the baby was killed by the doctor injecting a saline solution into the mother’s womb.  This solution causes the baby to die a slow painful death and in the process burns the baby’s body.

As he matured, his belief that taking an unborn baby’s life by abortion was immoral. His view evolved to become a large part of his moral and ethical beliefs.  This incident is still clearly etched in his memory.  He said when he thinks about abortion and the right to life of the unborn, the picture of that dead baby comes to mind and reinforces his belief in the sanctity of human life.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:13-14

God’s Precious Gift of Love: Choosing Life for Special Needs Unborn Babies

Down Syndrom Newborn

Recently, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf vetoed the Down Syndrome Protection Bill passed by the PA House and Senate.  This bill would have saved these precious unborn babies from abortion. Read article here

The following is the story of my encounter with a special family.  They welcomed and embraced not only their unborn child diagnosed with Down syndrome, but made a decision to welcome into their family other children with special needs.

In late 1970, I had the privilege of meeting Florence ‘Floss’ and her husband Sam through my pastor. Floss and Sam had two children. She told me the story of when she became pregnant with their third child.  Her and Sam learned the baby had Down syndrome.  While the diagnosis was concerning and unexpected, they knew that many challenges lay ahead of them.  Little did they know that their precious baby girl would be the impetus that would lead them to a special call from God.

Many of these babies are born with heart defects and other medical issues. Floss told me that some doctors did not want to treat these children.  In their view, it was a waste of their time and resources.  Floss was a fighter and fought for not only her daughter’s right to medical care and educational needs, but also parents fighting the same battles for their special needs children.

So great was their love and concern for this God-given mission, they fostered and then adopted two older children with Down syndrome.  I would visit the family many times and join them in hymn sings.  The children were so filled with joy as they sang their very best in their praise to the Lord.

Years ago, while attending adult night classes at a community college, the professor brought up the issue of abortion. A student said that unborn Down syndrome babies  should be aborted.  I strongly disagreed.  I told him that these children have more love, compassion and acceptance that I had ever experienced from anyone. He was dumbfounded and had no response to my statement. This man’s attitude toward those born with Down syndrome continues to this day.

The unconditional love these special children have for their family, friends and anyone they meet is a gift from God.  In their eyes, no one is a stranger.

Below is a poem I wrote in tribute to Floss and Sam and to parents who chose life for their special needs children.

God’s Gift of Love

The sentence is death, I heard it today
The doctor told Mommy there’s no other way

Please give me a chance Mom to show you God’s reason
His purpose for my life will come in due season

I may not be cute, or charming or bright
My speech may be slow, my limbs not quite right

My gifts may not dazzle, enthrall or bring cheers
It’s God’s love I can give, full of laughter and tears

His plan for my life, a gift from above,
Is just to show others a glimpse of His love

His marvelous love to reach just one soul
Who longs to be loved, accepted, made whole

I wish you could see all the blessings in store
It may not always be easy. Life won’t be a bore.

So Mom, please listen to His voice from above…whispering

“This is a Special Gift of My Love

Alison Centofante, Director of External Relations forwarded the following report about the successful inaugural Live Action Awards Gala in Los Angeles, California. 

LA-blue3

The Inaugural Live Action Life Awards Gala was held on November 16th, and thanks to all who were able to support and attend, we filled the Historic Vibiana in Downtown Los Angeles, California with over 550 pro-life leaders from California and across the country!

We chose Los Angeles for this gala to make a statement: if we can change hearts and minds on abortion here, we can change hearts and minds anywhere. And we are changing hearts and minds in Los Angeles and across the country.

Our gala united pro-life leaders from across the country to make it clear abortion is the most urgent human rights abuse of our time – and it must end.

We honored outspoken pro-life champions Ben Shapiro, Ben and Kirsten Watson, and Gianna Jessen with Live Action’s first Life Awards for their work and dedication in the pro-life movement.

The Life Awards Gala honors these individuals and all who are fighting to end abortion, the greatest human rights abuse of our time.

Live Action President and Founder Lila Rose said of the awardees:

“These pro-life leaders are well-deserving of this year’s Life Awards. Their courageous example is inspiring for all of us as we build a culture that respects vulnerable, preborn life. The pro-life work of Ben Shapiro, Benjamin and Kirsten Watson, and Gianna Jessen touches millions of people, including a huge number of young people who will shape our culture in years to come. We need more outspoken voices like theirs to share the pro-life message about the dignity and worth of preborn children, and the harm that is caused by abortion.”

Special guest Pat Lencioni, president and founder of The Table Group and New York Times best-selling author, also addressed the crowd of over 550 business leaders, organizational leaders, and dedicated pro-life activists encouraging them in their pro-life convictions.

‘We Never Thought Twice’: Teacher Adopts Student With Down Syndrome After Mom Dies

 

Caucasian mother holding baby girl with Down Syndrome

The following is an inspiring story by Will Maule of Faithwire.  He writes about the selfless love of a teacher, a terminally mother and her son.

A compassionate teacher has adopted her own student after his mom died of cancer.

The incredible story began four years ago with a brutally honest conversation between special-ed teacher Kerry Bremer and Jean Manning, a terminally ill mother.

Though the pair had only known each other for a matter of months, their conversation would prove to be life-altering both for Kerry and for Manning’s son, Jake, who has Down Syndrome.

“I said, ‘I may be overstepping here and forgive me if I am, but my family and I would like to offer guardianship for Jake if you need a backup plan,’” Bremer recalled to TODAY Parents.

Through tears, Jean accepted her offer.

“I’ll sleep better tonight than I have in a very long time,’” the ailing mother explained.

Bremer noted how she “fell in love with Jake instantly” and could not help but offer him a place in their family. “I knew he would a need a home and there was no way I wouldn’t open ours to him,” she said.

Kerry Petkewich Bremer about a week ago

This past Wednesday, Jeanie Manning became a “Queen Angel.” She fought a long, hard and often very unfair battle with cancer. We knew it would happen some day, but it was the last thing any of us expected this past Wednesday. As a result of her passing, we will love, protect and treasure Jake just as we promised. He will live with us forever and we will keep her memory, her love, her determination and her beautiful smile alive in his heart and ours every day! We love you “Queen Angel Mom.” Fly high and watch over us every day. “Our boy” will miss you terribly, but we’ve got this! ❤️🙏😇 “Bremer, party of 6

On November 13, Manning passed away,

“My mom went to heaven,” Jake told CBS 17. “She’s my queen, angel mom. She’s always in my heart..she loved me so much.”

After Jean passed, Jean honored her promise and Jake moved into the family home. The house was already filled with Jake’s toys and clothes from the countless hours he’d been spending there while his mom went through grueling treatment. The transition was tough but is going well so far.

“We never thought twice about it,” Manning said of their decision to welcome Jake into their family. “I loved this kid so much. He has done more for us than we could ever do for him.”

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf Vetoes Bill Banning Down Syndrome Abortions

Wolf has close ties to the abortion industry.  In 2018, his re-election campaign received a record $1.5 million in support from Planned Parenthood. 

tomwolf2019

Gov. Tom Wolf is rabidly pro-abortion.  He served as a volunteer escort at Planned Parenthood.  During his 2018 reelection campaign, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Planned Parenthood described him as a “bulwark against GOP-led attempts in Harrisburg to restrict abortion rights” and as the “last line of defense.”

Below is a Life News report by Steven Ertelt and Miciah Bilger on Gov. Wolf’s latest veto on a bill that would have protected Down Syndrome unborn babies from abortion.  

Pennsylvania Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday vetoed a bill to protect unborn babies with Down syndrome from discrimination.

The Down Syndrome Protection Act (House Bill 321) passed the state Senate on Wednesday in a 27-22 vote. The bill would prohibit an abortion solely based on a diagnosis of Down syndrome. It would add to a state law that also prohibits discriminatory sex-selection abortions. The Pennsylvania House previously passed the measure by an overwhelming, bipartisan margin.

But Wolf today vetoed the legislation to protect babies with Down syndrome.

In a statement, the governor called the legislation a “restriction on women and medical professionals and interferes with women’s health care and the crucial decision-making between patients and their physicians.” He said enforcement of the bill would “upend the doctor-patient relationship and impede on patient confidentiality.”

“Gov. Wolf’s veto will prevent all children with Down’s Syndrome from going on to live happy and fulfilled lives,” said Eric Failing, executive director of the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference.

“Had Gov. Wolf signed this legislation, he would’ve ensured the protection of humanity’s most vulnerable lives. We thank all legislators who came together in a bi-partisan fashion to support this common-sense legislation, and PCC looks forward to working with them again to protect the sanctity of life.”

Ahead of his veto, Wolf slammed the bill in a statement to the AP, claiming it “seeks to limit health care choices for women and politicize difficult moments for vulnerable families.”

“This bill masks yet another attempt to ban abortions and put politicians between a woman and her doctor,” Wolf’s office said.

Wolf has close ties to the abortion industry. He once volunteered as an escort at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility. In 2018, his re-election campaign received a record $1.5 million in support from Planned Parenthood. He also appointed several people from the abortion chain to his administration, including his chief of staff. It is not clear if there are enough votes in the state legislature to override Wolf’s veto.

“We have a responsibility to protect those who don’t have a voice,” said state Rep. Kate Klunk, R-York County, a sponsor of the bill, in a statement earlier this year. “We have a responsibility to stand up against eugenics. And, we have a responsibility to stand up to say that a baby with Down syndrome has a right to life and should not be discriminated against in the womb.”

Other sponsors include Sen. Scott Martin, R-Lancaster and House Speaker Mike Turzai, R-Allegheny County. A number of disability rights advocates also support the bill, including Karen Gaffney, a long-distance swimmer with Down syndrome and disability rights advocate, Kurt and Chloe Kondrich, and Sara Hart Weir, the former president of the National Down Syndrome Society.

Supporters urged lawmakers to protect unborn babies from discrimination, noting how abortion has become a modern means of eugenics.
