U.S. Court Allows Texas to Enforce Anti-Abortion Law

Published on: October 3, 2014

A federal appeals court Thursday gave Texas permission to fully enforce a sweeping abortion law signed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry last year that would effectively close all but seven abortion facilities in America’s second-most populous state.

Two years ago, Texas had more than 40 abortion facilities. Many clinics have already closed under a part of the law requiring doctors who perform abortions to obtain hospital admitting privileges, and now more than a dozen remaining clinics are set to shutter as well.

The decision by a panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court in New Orleans wipes out what was a fleeting victory for abortion rights groups — a lower court in August blocking requirements of the law that say clinics must meet hospital-level operating standards to stay in business.

The ruling is only a stay pending a full appeal, but the court wrote that Texas is likely to prevail. If it does, the clinics would have to make costly upgrades to meet the new standards and reopen.

The impact stands to be felt most along the Texas-Mexico border and in the western half of the state, where access to a legal abortion is especially limited. The only abortion clinic in McAllen, which reopened after the lower court’s ruling, now stands to close again. That would leave women in the Rio Grande Valley facing a 300-mile drive to the next-nearest abortion facility.

But the court wrote that “women from McAllen have been travelling outside their city for nearly a year and Plaintiffs made no showing that clinics in San Antonio (or any other city) have been deluged.”

black babies

In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

The report is entitled, Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes, and was prepared by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Vital Statistics. (See Pregnancy Outcomes NYC Health 2012.pdf)

The more pregnancies that are terminated, the higher the woman’s cancer risk becomes

One in 10 new cancers worldwide is a female breast cancer. And North American rates of breast cancer are the highest in the world.

While there is no magic bullet assuring prevention, epidemiological studies provide us with long-established odds-boosting factors: Have children; have many children; start early. But these guidelines do not sit well with current social and cultural norms. Consequently, one rarely (ever?) sees mention of them in breast cancer awareness campaigns.

There is another, hotly-contested preventive strategy, the very mention of which raises hackles in prochoice circles: Avoid induced abortion (IA).

In what has been described as a “real game changer” in breast cancer research, a new peer-reviewed study from China not only endorses the long-mooted link between IA and breast cancer, but concludes the risk rises with every abortion a woman has. The study, “A metaanalysis of the association between induced abortion and breast cancer risk among Chinese females” was published last week in Cancer Causes and Control, an international cancer journal.

Historically Chinese women have enjoyed lower breast cancer rates than in North America, but are now experiencing an “alarming rate” of escalating incidence. The study’s researchers from the Tianjiin Medical University Cancer Hospital point to China’s one-child program, which has seen 336 million babies aborted since the 1980s, as the culprit. Their findings, described as a “dose-responsive relationship,” pegged one IA to a 44% rise in risk of breast cancer, two IAs to 76% and three to 89%.

Appeals court reinstates most of Texas’ abortion restrictions (We Can Win)

A federal appeals court on Thursday issued a ruling reinstating most of Texas’ tough new abortion restrictions.

A panel of judges at the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals issued the ruling a day after District Judge Lee Yeakel said one provision serves no medical purpose.

The panel says the law requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital can take effect while a lawsuit moves forward. The restrictions could take effect Friday. Read the ruling here (.pdf).

The panel left in place a portion of Yeakel’s order that prevents the state from enforcing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration protocol for abortion-inducing drugs in cases where the woman is between 50 and 63 days into her pregnancy. Doctors testifying before the court had said such women would be harmed if the protocol were enforced.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott had made an emergency appeal to the conservative 5th Circuit, arguing that the law requiring doctors to have admitting privileges is a constitutional use of the Legislature’s authority.

Lawyers for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers had argued that the regulations did not protect women and would shut down a third of the abortion clinics in Texas.

Poll: Again, women and pretty much everyone else supportive of restricting late-term abortions

Aaron Blake of the Washington Post tweets a Quinippiac Poll with this finding thusly:

Aaron Blake @AaronBlakeWP Interestingly, Q poll shows women more supportive of 20-week abortion ban than men. Women back it 60-25, men 50-35. http://bit.ly/13HzBWc

Yes, it is interesting, even counterintuitive, but only if you’ve ignored the similar result in pretty much every poll on the subject. I’m not after Blake, in particular on this point, but the entire media makes it its mission to characterize any restriction on abortion as prima facie “extreme,” without ever noting the obvious and inconvenient fact that late-term restrictions are, by definition, mainstream. They are supported by a majority of Americans, even many of those who believe abortion should be legal in the first trimester, and even more solid majorities of women.

Quinnipiac is just another example in a long line of data points:

On another matter, the Republican-led effort in Congress and in many state capitols to reduce from 24 weeks to 20 weeks the time period during a pregnancy in which almost all abortions should be legal is striking a chord with voters. A total of 55 percent want a 20-week limit while 30 percent favor the current 24 week limit.

Looking a little deeper, there is not a major demographic that prefers 24-week unrestricted legality to 20-week. Republicans prefer a 20-week cut-off 62-17, Independents 59-26, Men 50-35, Women 60-25, White 55-32, Black 53-28, and Hispanic 59-20. Democrats come closest, only preferring a 20-week cut-off by a 46-44 margin.

Texas Governor Rick Perry Signs Bill Banning Late-Term Abortions

Published on: July 18, 2013

Governor Rick Perry of Texas today signed the ban on late-term abortions into law at a bill signing ceremony. The signing came after weeks of debate in the state legislature and passage of the bill despite an unruly pro-abortion mob.

“Today’s signing builds on our continued commitment to protecting life for more than a decade. This is an important day for those who support life and the health of women in Texas,” Perry said. “Signing HB2 further solidifies the foundation on which the culture of in Texas is built.”

“HB2 brings improvements to the quality of care women receive,” Perry added. “HB2 protects unborn babies after the fifth month of pregnancy.”requires a doctor providing abortions to secure admitting privileges at a nearby hospital, and lastly, requires a doctor to personally administer the abortion-inducing drugs to the patient.

After a day filled with pro-abortion threats, pro-life people hiding in secure areas of the capitol fearing for their safety and protestors disrupting the Senate proceedings, democracy finally prevailed. Members of the state Senate approved the bill to ban late-term abortions on a 19-11 margin on second reading. The chamber then approved the bill in third reading by the same 19-11 vote.

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today in support of Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s signing.

And Now It Begins: Catholic Groups Rise Up to Replace the Boy Scouts!

Within twenty-four hours of the Boy Scouts’ big announcement that they will open the membership to openly gay Scouts, fathers and concerned citizens are stepping up with plans to organize new ways to gather young males around the campfire for marshmallows and song. I thought it would happen—but I’m amazed, frankly, that it’s happening so soon.

I was going to tell you about two of the existing boys’ groups, which have a well-defined mission statement and a history of successful retreats and camp-outs and sporting events. Today I learned about two new groups bursting onto the horizon: groups which are rooted in faith and freedom, character and compassion.

So here’s my list of four boys clubs which encourage leadership and personal holiness, and which are still a whole bunch of fun. I’m sure the list is by no means exhaustive; in communities across America, men are planning, working, developing new ideas.

Rick Santorum: Wake Up! Our Freedom Is in Jeopardy

This is a critical time in American history. I think we all know that something big is happening in America. The steady stream of news out of Washington the past couple weeks is just a fresh reminder of this. We are learning more about how far our Department of Justice went in digging through the phone records of members of the press. We are also learning about how our own government targeted conservative groups by delaying or denying their tax-exempt status. And we are all waiting for the other shoe to drop on Obamacare — the rate increases, the religious liberty violations and the bloated government bureaucracy that it will surely bring. This is troubling stuff, but it’s just more evidence of President Obama’s real agenda.

A little more than five years ago, when Barack Obama was running for president, he said something to a private audience about my state of Pennsylvania that foreshadowed this agenda. He told this group in San Francisco that the people of western Pennsylvania “cling to guns or religion.” This quote was a slap of derision to faithful Christians and believers in the Second Amendment. At the time, we all saw it for what it was, but I don’t think we saw it for what he really meant. I think it goes deeper than that. Obama, in this last campaign, said he wanted to “transform America.”

What is really happening now as we hear more about gun control, tax increases, Obamacare and same-sex marriage is a debate about who we are as Americans. America is not like most other countries in the world. Most others countries in the world are based on some sort of ethnicity — France, Italy, Afghanistan, Russia. Not us. For Americans, it is a shared set of values. We are Americans because of what we hold together as a belief structure. So when Barack Obama says he wants to “transform America,” he wants to transform that basic set of core beliefs found in the Declaration of Independence — the words that bring us together which we all know and often hear repeated: “We hold these truths (truths) to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

That’s America.

So when Barack Obama says he wants to transform America, what does he mean? There was another revolution that went on, right about the same time as the American Revolution and the signing of the Declaration of Independence — the French Revolution. The French Revolution was eerily similar to the American Revolution, but there was a significant difference. The French Revolution was also to overthrow a king, yes. The revolutionaries’ guiding words were equality (sounds goods), liberty (good) and fraternity or brotherhood — not paternity, fatherhood. That is, in France, the belief was not that rights come from a Creator. Instead, the other revolution was a secular, godless, anti-clerical revolution. Churches were burned; clergy were killed. It was a rejection of God.

Barack Obama’s vision for America is the same vision that has been running wild for two centuries in Europe. All of Western Europe is now a descendent of the French Revolution. Churches there are empty. It is a secular culture and a dying culture. Europeans don’t have rights, other than the rights the government decides to give and occasionally take away. American liberals like to look to Europe and say, “Look at the gun-control laws there.” Well, how about looking at the free speech laws there, or the other freedoms? They don’t have the freedoms we do, because they don’t have the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution we have. So when Barack Obama says he wants to transform America, and he looks down his nose at people who “cling” to their guns and their Bible, he understands that the critical transition America has to make is to reject the Declaration, to reject that living, breathing document of the Constitution.

We are at a critical time in America because the transformation that Barack Obama has talked about is actually happening. Those on the left live this battle every minute of the day. They do it in their schools, in their homes, in their church, at work. They are constantly pushing their agenda, and they are marginalizing anybody and everybody who disagrees with them. And now it turns out many in the federal government are doing it, as well. Positions that have been the bulwark of American civilization are now the “fringe.” You must, in every aspect of your life, understand the battle that is before us — because they do. You ask what you can do? Be as passionate as they are about what you love about this country.

NY Gov Cuomo To Propose Bill To Match Federal Law Allowing For Abortions After 24 Weeks (6 Months!)

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (file / credit: Governor's Office)

An abortion battle could be brewing in Albany, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to propose a major change to abortion laws in New York State.

CBS 2 has learned that Cuomo will introduce a bill on Tuesday that would allow abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy to protect a woman’s health. The bill would fall in line with federal law.

Currently, New York State only allows late-term abortions if a woman’s life is at risk.

Planned Parenthood outlined a 2009 bill with reportedly similar goals. The 2009 Reproductive Health Act would “guarantee a woman can make her own personal, private health care decisions, especially when her health is endangered,” as well as treat abortion as a public health issue rather than a “potential crime,” and guarantee New Yorkers’ right to receive or refuse contraception as they see fit.

“Current New York law compounds that tragedy when it happens late in pregnancy by making it a potential crime to provide an abortion to protect her health,” Planned Parenthood said. “The Reproductive Health Act will ensure she can get the safe, legal abortion care she needs.”

The current law is not enforced, because it is superseded by federal rulings on late-term abortions, according to a New York Times report.

But Cuomo administrative officials told the newspaper in February that there is a concern that the U.S. Supreme Court could change the rules, leaving the older state restrictions on late-term abortions as the applicable law.

Republicans in the New York State Senate have slammed the proposal as an extreme measure from what they call the radical left.

‘Pedophile Protection’: Rapist Takes Young Girl to Planned Parenthood for an Abortion to Hide His Crime

Rapist Luis Gonztalez Jose Takes Young Girl to Planned Parenthood for an Abortion to Hide His Crime

A shocking story is coming out of Everson, Washington, where a pre-teen was raped, impregnated and coerced into aborting her child.

The girl’s attacker brought her to Planned Parenthood, where she lied about how she was impregnated and subsequently had an abortion.

It was August 2012 when the preteen told clinic workers that her 14-year-old boyfriend was the baby’s father — a lie that was apparently told to protect the adult male who had perpetrated the crime.

It wasn’t until six weeks later that she told authorities what really happened. As a result, in April, Luis Gonztalez-Jose, 31, pleaded guilty to second-degree rape of a child.

The horrific incident apparently occurred at a home in Whatcom County, while her mother was in the shower, reports The Bellingham Herald. Gonzalez-Jose will serve nearly seven years in prison as a result of the crime and will be deported upon release.

Second abortion clinic where doctor ‘twisted heads off fetus’ necks with his bare hands’ Investigated


A second ‘house of horrors’ abortion clinic is being investigated in Texas, just days after Dr Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of murdering newborns at his Philadelphia termination center.

Houston doctor Douglas Karpen is accused by four former employees of delivering live fetuses during third-trimester abortions and killing them by either snipping their spinal cord, stabbing a surgical instrument into their heads or ‘twisting their heads off their necks with his own bare hands’.

Other times the fetus was so big he would have to pull it out of the womb in pieces, Karpen’s ex-assistant, Deborah Edge, said in an Operation Rescue video, which has prompted a criminal investigation into the doctor.

‘Sometimes he couldn’t get the fetus out… he would yank pieces – piece by piece – when they were oversize,’ Edge explained.

‘And I’m talking about the whole floor dirty. I’m talking about me drenched in blood.’

Two of Edge’s colleagues, Gigi Aguliar, and Krystal Rodriguez, also described the hellish scenes which took place at the Aaron Women’s Clinic in Houston in 2011, and possibly two other abortion clinics run by Karpen in Texas.

Another staffer, who remains anonymous, filed an affidavit with her account of events, which the Texas Department of State Health Services is using in its investigation.

‘We have several people looking into the allegations,’ Harris County District Attorney spokesman Sara Marie Kinney told Chron.com.

Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said he had read the allegations ‘with disgust’ before calling for a full investigation into Karpen and his clinics.

Philly abortion doctor found GUILTY in 3 babies’ deaths

A Philadelphia abortion doctor was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder and could face execution in the deaths of three babies who authorities say were delivered alive and then killed with scissors at his grimy clinic, in a case that became a flashpoint in the nation’s debate over abortion.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the drug-overdose death of a patient who had undergone an abortion. He was cleared in the death of a fourth baby, who prosecutors say let out a soft whimper before he snipped its neck.

Gosnell appeared hopeful before the verdict was read and calm afterward; jurors and lawyers on both sides were more emotional.

The jury will return May 21 to hear evidence on whether Gosnell should get the death penalty.

Pope Francis’ First Crisis? Defiant Archbishop Refuses to Quit (Pedo Protecting, pro-homo priest wont go away!)

PHOTO: On several occasions the Vatican has asked Puerto Rican Archbishop Roberto Gonzalez Nieves to leave his post. But supporters of the archbishop have organized several meetings to pray for his continuity.

The new pope’s first crisis is not related to the Church’s controversial position on contraceptives or proposals for female clergy. Rather, Pope Francis’ first major quandary is getting rid of a Puerto Rican archbishop who, despite the Vatican’s numerous requests, has repeatedly refused to step down.

The source of Pope Francis’ current ordeal is Roberto Octavio González Nieves, the outspoken Archbishop of San Juan, who has been accused by Vatican emissaries of allegedly protecting pedophile priests, abusing his power, promoting Puerto Rican independence from the U.S., and supporting a law that could grant same-sex couples living together hereditary rights and health benefits, according to the Vatican Insider.

González Nieves was confronted by Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the current prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, and denied the allegations during a tense meeting in Puerto Rico on December 15, 2012. In the course of the discussion, the Vatican envoy subtly asked González Nieves to resign and to ask the Church for a new position elsewhere.

A college professor has been arrested for a profane rant at pro-life students at the University of Buffalo.

Professor Laura Curry screamed at students, yelling at them: “Where does it say I can’t use the f**k word in public. I can swear because that’s part of my vocabulary. That’s part of my First Amendment rights.”

According to a report by Fox News, Curry, an adjunct instructor of media study, was lashing out at the University’s Students for Life organization. The group had erected a pro-life display featuring images that offended Curry.

“I can swear in public because that is profane,” she said referring to the display. “That image is swearing to me. That is profane to me.”
