Studies Purporting to Show Safety of Telemed Abortions Are Unpersuasive

Abortion advocates are working overtime trying to make the case that telemed distribution of the chemical abortion pill is “safe & effective.”

Good research shows otherwise.

The latest from Michael New at The Daily Signal

Supporters of legal abortion are trying to make the case that telemed abortions do not pose health risks, but their evidence is weak.

Opinion | How Planned Parenthood Can Atone for Margaret Sanger

Maybe Planned Parenthood is serious about abandoning eugenics. If so, it should endorse the idea that no baby should receive a death sentence because of a difficult diagnosis.

Chuck Donovan & Robert Marshall respond to Alexis McGill Johnson's misleading op-ed:

If it really wants to transcend its founder’s eugenics legacy, it should disavow abortion due to a prenatal diagnosis of disability.

HHS Chief's New (Re)search and Destroy Mission

"Not to be too graphic (is it possible not to be?) but we're talking about body parts from aborted babies. There are literally 'tissue procurement people' -- that's what they are called -- which is a euphemism for somebody that's basically scavenging corpses for body parts, baby brains, baby hearts, baby livers, other body parts."

Dr. David Prentice joined Tony Perkins on Family Research Council's "Washington Watch" to discuss HHS's 180 on funding unethical (and ineffective) fetal tissue research.

Abortion Cases in The Higher Federal Courts: Clarification Needed After June Medical | Charlotte Lozier Institute

Clarification needed: SCOTUS still has an opportunity this term to hear an argument focused on abortion law.

The State of Mississippi is asking the Court to clarify or modify the legal standards that are applied to laws that impact abortion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

This review is desperately needed, because the Court’s 2020 decision in June Medical Services v. Russo further obfuscated the law for legislators and judges who are trying to determine the constitutionality of proposed and existing abortion laws.

Baby Jabari, whose name means Brave, underwent a successful surgery at 21 weeks in utero

A rare discovery on a St. Paul mother’s 20-week ultrasound forced a family to make the tough decision for their baby to undergo surgery in utero.

Expanding Telemedicine Abortions Would be a Grave Mistake

If the Food and Drug Administration changes the current rules, it would be possible for a woman to consult with a doctor in another state -- or even a foreign country and receive abortion pills in the mail.

"After being firmly told that abortion was not an option for her, the doctor continued to push it. We later marveled that, in a post-#MeToo era, a medical professional who primarily serves women could refuse to believe that no means no."

All too often, mothers facing difficult pregnancies are pressured by their doctors to abort—and are bullied or berated if they refuse.

The toll of abortion among black Americans is ~4x times its toll among whites nationally, is persistent, & is seldom recognized as a public health crisis.

Repealing the Hyde Amendment would only deepen this disparity.

The so-called “American Rescue Plan” opens a startling new chapter in Congress’s debate over what has been all but settled law for four decades: the federal government’s long-standing policy of not using taxpayer funds to pay for or promote abortion on demand. The late Rep. Henry J. Hyde, au...

Your baby's prenatal diagnosis is not a death sentence. Just ask my giggling goddaughter.

“Incompatible with life”
“Severe fetal abnormality”
“Adverse prenatal diagnosis”

The diagnoses often accompanied by these terms, writes Dr. Christina Francis, do not have to be a death sentence: these babies deserve the best care & their mothers need support

A truly progressive health care system gives opportunity to all people, and goes beyond artificial human expiration dates.

Significant advances were made in 2020 to move away from the antiquated science using human fetal tissue from abortion and toward development of modern techniques and biological models that do not use fetal tissue.

However, a resurgence of research using trafficked aborted fetal body parts is likely with the new White House Administration."

For many Americans, the approval of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine raises renewed questions about the use of cells derived from elective abortions.

I'm a bit confused. A recent Catholic News Agency quoted CLI saying this: "The vaccine being developed by Moderna in collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is also “ethically uncontroversial,” CLI says. But my understanding is that the Moderna vaccine does utilize fetal tissue. Can you please clarify CLI's stance on this? Thanks.

My daughter was pregnant almost 13 years ago. My little granddaughter did not make it, nor would my daughters body expel it. She has told me that this vote for yes would keep others from having this baby removed and she would have died of gangrene. Can you show me anywhere in the vote on this amendment this is not true. Thank you.I am sure this is one of the lies the other side is propagating.
