Judge Rules That Names of Planned Parenthood Workers Will Remain Sealed

By Townhall. Last Monday, a California judge ruled that the names of 14 Planned Parenthood workers and others will remain sealed during the prosecution of two pro-life activists charged with secretly recording them.

According to an AP report, the ruling was made by San Francisco Superior Court Judge Christopher Hite even though the names had already been published by LifeSite News over the weekend.

Hite threatened to punish anyone caught providing the names. Charges were first filed against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress in 2017. . .

The disturbing videos were first released by the Center for Medical Progress in 2015. They allegedly depict Planned Parenthood executives and workers discussing the illegal harvesting and selling-for-profit of body parts of aborted babies. Subjects in the videos can be seen discussing prices, picking through fetal arms and legs in a tray, and figuring out which abortion methods might work best for obtaining fetal body parts to sell.

California Judge Will Keep Planned Parenthood Names Sealed

By AP. A California judge ruled Monday that the names of 14 Planned Parenthood workers and others will remain sealed during the prosecution of two anti-abortion activists charged with secretly recording them. . .

One the Planned Parenthood workers filed an affidavit saying Daleiden has her phone number and texted her in 2016 saying, ”‘I know a lot has happened in the past year, and maybe I’m the last person you want to hear from. But if there’s anything I can do to help you, please let me know.’”

Merritt’s lawyer Horacio Mihet and Daleiden’s attorney Brentford Ferreira argued against sealing the names. Each told the judge they didn’t give the names to the website and don’t know who did. (Read more from “California Judge Will Keep Planned Parenthood Names Sealed” HERE)

How New York’s Radical Abortion Law Will Hurt Preemies and People With Down Syndrome

Last week, a spokesperson for the Queens district attorney’s office announced that a New York man accused of stabbing his pregnant girlfriend to death repeatedly in the abdomen and neck would not be charged with second-degree abortion due to the repeal of that statute in the recently passed Reproductive Health Act (RHA), which expanded abortion access to the point of birth in the state.

Not an ounce of the justice due to the unborn child of Jennifer Irigoyen will be sought, all because pro-death officials elected by New Yorkers have succeeded in their mission to define all pre-born human life in their state as disposable non-persons.

Pro-lifers often criticize pro-choice language as myopically, disingenuously focused on “a woman and her doctor.” We assert that a child is involved, too––a child who is being killed. We point out the value of pre-born life and “the mother-child bond,” but in our zeal for saving pre-born babies from abortion, we often unwittingly restrict our focus to what happens in the surgical room of abortion clinics and the doctors’ offices that prescribe abortifacients. . .

Women have been pressured to abort babies with abnormalities or difficult pregnancies to the point of others scheduling the abortion without their express consent and trying to scare them with all the potential problems their child may face. They face this pressure because abortion has become the first “solution” to the problem of a difficult pregnancy, simply because it is legal and ostensibly more convenient and less expensive than giving birth and trying to potentially raise a disabled child, or trying to balance cancer treatment with preserving the baby’s health.

The tragedy doesn’t even end at the deaths of pre-born babies with abnormalities––the effect of killing off the vast majority of certain populations, as Denmark and the Netherlands have done with Down Syndrome, is a drastic decrease in quality of life for the few who are allowed to live due to scarce resources and an ever-increasing pressure for women to abort a baby with that diagnosis. If nearly every baby of a certain diagnosis is aborted, there is little incentive to develop treatments and therapy for those conditions, much less make them affordable. These are the consequences of legal abortion. (Read more from “How New York’s Radical Abortion Law Will Hurt Preemies and People With Down Syndrome” HERE)

DISRESPECT: Angel Moms Interrupted by Hecklers While Reading Poems For Their Murdered Children

A group of “angel moms” whose children have been killed by illegal immigrants were interrupted Wednesday by hecklers as they were reading poems that they wrote to their deceased children.

The rally took place at the Capitol in Washington, D.C., where parents spoke out to help educate others on their beliefs on why President Trump’s wall should be built.

The hecklers appeared to disrupt the rally because of Trump, despite the rally mainly consisting of angel moms who were trying to convince people that border security is crucial to the safety of the American people.

While the angel moms were reading poetry for their murdered children, the hecklers that passed them yelled, “You’re supposed to be with us. F**k Trump.

Doctors Called Mom ‘Inhumane’ for Refusing to Abort Her Twins. Now They’re Thriving.

By Life Site News. A mother has spoken out about how doctors called her inhumane when she ignored numerous attempts to get her to abort her twin boys.

Hannah Morris was urged to terminate her pregnancy when her waters broke at just 16 weeks. She was diagnosed with preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM), and told that neither baby had any chance of survival. . .

She describes being pressured to have an abortion. “They said, ‘no, there was a 100 per cent chance that this baby won’t survive, you need to have to have some medicine to induce labour, it’s your only option’. I didn’t want to do that. My gut was telling me not to follow the advice. . .

At a follow-up appointment at the hospital, a doctor told her that if the babies got to 24 weeks, their limbs would be stuck together and their vital organs wouldn’t be functional. “[They said] I was only causing them more pain by carrying on with the pregnancy,” Ms Morris says. “We were considering at this point terminating the pregnancies because this was coming from top consultants.” . . .

Despite the negative medical advice, Ms Morris made it to 34 weeks and had a c-section. George was born first weighing 5lb 4oz and Alfie followed at 4lb 1oz. They both spent four days in the NICU, but despite Alfie being born with holes in his heart and George suffering a weakened immune system due to his premature birth, both toddlers are now healthy and thriving.

Doctors Told Me I Was Inhumane for NOT Aborting My Boys – but My Instinct Was Right, I Have Healthy Twins

By The SUN. . . .Against all medical advice, Hannah made it to 34 weeks and had a c-section.

George was born first weighing 5lb 4oz and Alfie followed at 4lb 1oz – both spending four days in NICU.

Despite Alfie being born with holes in his heart and George suffering a weakened immune system due to his premature birth, both toddlers are now healthy and thriving.

Hannah said: “Taking our boys home was amazing. Just to know that we were right and that we had made the right decision by our children.

“They had defeated all the odds and they were strong, healthy little boys. They are now so cheeky and you look at them and think, wow, you nearly weren’t here. (Read more from “Doctors Told Me I Was Inhumane for NOT Aborting My Boys – but My Instinct Was Right, I Have Healthy Twins” HERE)

Man Who ‘Identifies’ as Woman Assaults 10-Year-Old in Women’s Bathroom

In Scotland, an 18-year-old male who identifies as a woman was given a slap on the wrist by authorities earlier this month after assaulting a 10-year-old girl in the restroom.

According to The Courier, the suspect, who goes by the name Katie Dolatowski, sexually assaulted the unidentified little girl in a supermarket restroom on March 4, 2018, reportedly grabbing “the terrified youngster by the face, shov[ing] her into the cubicle and order[ing] her to remove her trousers.” . . .

Rather than being sent to jail, Dolatowski has been banned from having contact with children and given community service and electronic tagging. “I have come to the conclusion that the public will be better protected by the imposition of a stringent community payback order,” said Sheriff James Williamson. . .

The mother added that Dolatowski behaved as a sexual predator and specifically stalked the toilets to victimize a little girl. “He was stalking the toilets. He went there specifically to attack a child,” she said. . .

The Senate Will Vote on Ben Sasse’s Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

On Thursday night, Senator Ben Sasse, R-Neb., announced that the Senate will hold a roll call vote for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act on Monday, February 25.

The bill is a response to the recent law passed in New York, which allows late-term abortions up to the point of delivery. Sasse’s bill would require physicians to provide medical care to infants born alive despite abortion procedures — to “fight for the little guy,” Sasse said — as Conservative Review has previously reported.

On January 30, Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam defended a bill similar to New York’s, going so far as to say that the mother and physician would have a “discussion” post-delivery to determine whether or not the baby would be saved. His remarks sparked huge backlash from many conservatives for endorsing infanticide and motivated Sen. Sasse to present this legislation.

The seven-page bill has been berated by Senate Democrats for overstating the issue. They claim infanticide is already illegal and blocked Sasse’s initial request for unanimous consent to pass the bill.

Focus on the Family Plans to Broadcast Live 4D Ultrasounds on Giant Screen in Times Square

In response to New York’s recent decision to allow abortions up to the moment of birth, Focus on the Family has launched “See Life Clearly,” the largest pro-life effort in the history of the organization.

The global Christian ministry’s campaign will conclude on May 4 with “Alive from New York,” featuring live 4D ultrasounds that will be broadcast across the large monitors in Times Square.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating life in the middle of Manhattan this coming May. Times Square is known as ‘The Crossroads of the World’ and we’re at a crossroad as a nation regarding life,” Focus on the Family President Jim Daly told TheBlaze in an email. “Do we really want to be part of the Abortion Axis of Evil – like China, North Korea and Vietnam that allows abortion for any reason after 20 weeks? We’re hearing from people all over the country who are disgusted by the blatant disregard for life. Enough is enough!”

Focus on the Family President Jim Daly believes the images of a baby inside a mother’s womb will be undeniable.

“We’ll have great speakers. We’re going to have music, but we’re also going to do a live ultrasound of a third-trimester baby. And with the 4D technology that we have, it looks like a picture of a 1-year-old,” Daly told CBN News. “There is no way a person is going to be able to say, ‘That is not a child.’ It is a child and we want everybody to see it,” (Read more from “Focus on the Family Plans to Broadcast Live 4D Ultrasounds on Giant Screen in Times Square” HERE)

State Passes Bills to Ban Abortion After a Baby’s Heartbeat Is Detected

The Mississippi Legislature on Wednesday passed bills to ban abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detected — usually at about six weeks — Live Action reported.

The “heartbeat bills” passed by the state Senate and House offer no exceptions for victims of rape or incest, according to The Clarion Ledger. There are, however, exceptions if it is believed the pregnancy could cause serious harm or endanger a woman’s life.

If either bill is ultimately agreed to and signed into law, abortions would be illegal in Mississippi as soon as a heartbeat is detected. Mississippi Republican Gov. Phil Bryant has said he would sign a bill banning abortion as early as six weeks. . .

Republican Sen. Joey Fillingane presented the bill in the Senate, according to the Clarion Ledger. That prompted Democratic Sen. Derrick Simmons to ask Fillingane if he was aware that Mississippi has spent $1.2 million defending in court a previous 15-week abortion ban, which was struck down by a federal judge. . .

Earlier this month, The Associated Press reported that Florida, Kentucky, Ohio, South Carolina, and Tennessee are considering legislation similar to what Mississippi lawmakers approved Wednesday. (Read more from “State Passes Bills to Ban Abortion After a Baby’s Heartbeat Is Detected” HERE)

SHOCKER: Bernie Sanders Calls Ilhan Omar to Offer His Support

Sen. Bernie Sanders, who was born Jewish but who has attacked Israel for years, called anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Tuesday to offer his support, reportedly saying, “We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters.”

As reported by Jewish Insider, and confirmed by The Daily Beast, Sanders spoke with Omar. The Daily Beast reported:

Omar’s office confirmed that the congresswoman spoke with Sanders—who is Jewish—but the conversation was off-record and so they could not go into further details about the contents of the discussion. A source familiar with the conversation confirmed to The Daily Beast that Sanders expressed support for Omar.

The Daily Beast noted that Jewish Insider had stated Sanders had discussed Omar’s anti-Semitic tweets on a conference call hosted by James Zogby. The Daily Beast added, “Zogby told The Daily Beast the call was off-record when contacted about the veracity of the reporting, but the source familiar with the lawmakers’ conversation confirmed the Jewish Insider story.” . . .

In 2017, Sanders referred to the “occupation” that Israel had foisted on the “Palestinian territories,” saying, “its daily restrictions on the political and civil liberties of the Palestinian people runs contrary to fundamental American values,” and adding, “Like our own country, the founding of Israel involved the displacement of hundreds of thousands of people already living there, the Palestinian people. Over 700,000 people were made refugees.” (Read more from “SHOCKER: Bernie Sanders Calls Ilhan Omar to Offer His Support” HERE)

Twitter Sued by Blogger Blocked for Tweets About Transgender

Social media giant Twitter is being sued by a Canadian blogger who says she was permanently banned from the platform last year for her tweets about transgender people, a lawsuit said Monday.

Meghan Murphy, the founder of the blog Feminist Current, was locked out of her account last year when the company asked her to delete a tweet that said, “Men aren’t women,” CNET reported, citing the lawsuit. A second tweet said, “How are transwomen not men?” according to the suit.

She had violated the social media site’s rules against hateful conduct when she referenced a transgender woman as “him,” resulting in her ban, the Mercury News reported. (Read more from “Twitter Sued by Blogger Blocked for Tweets About Transgender” HERE)
