pro-life movie ‘Unplanned’ banned
from Canadian movie theatres
Free screening to be held at the
Edmonton Expo Centre May 14

Canadian movie distributors have de facto censored the
movie Unplanned from screening in theatres here says the
“We have been effectively blocked from distributing the
film in Canada,” said producer Lisa Wheeler at an Ottawa
news conference May 8.
Unplanned is based on the Abby Johnson’s memoir
Unplanned: the dramatic true story of an Planned
“What we’re seeing is that the film industry in Canada
mirrors the film industry here in the United States, in
terms of being more politically progressive, left
leaning and pro-choice than the population at large,”
said Chuck Konzelman, the film’s
writer/producer/director in an email interview.
“So our project is essentially anathema to them, and
they see excluding us from Canada as ‘positive good’…
effectively enacting de facto censorship, without right
The movie has exceeded all expectations at the box
office, earning about $18 million in its U.S. run, he
The two largest distributors in Canada cited ‘content’
as the issue, “not lack of consumer demand,” Konzelman
“And this follows on the heels of universal rejection
every Canadian distributor we approached, and whose
participation is required – by law – in order to exhibit
a film theatrically throughout much of Canada,” he said.
“In fact, we can’t even get a rating by any of the
provincial film boards, since one of the mandatory items
on the application for each province is for us to list
However, since the May 8 press conference, the Alberta
government has given the movie a 14A rating with a
warning of disturbing content.
In Edmonton, a private screening of Unplanned will be
held May 14 in the Expo Centre. The event starts at 6:30
p.m. and admission is free. The screening is sponsored
by Harvest Ministries International.
“I would like to say I’m surprised, but I’m not,” Abby
Johnson told the news conference the day before the
National March for Life. “I have to wonder what they’re
Last September, Johnson was the guest speaker at benefit
for the Alberta Life Issues Society, which runs The Back
Porch, an Edmonton pregnancy resource centre.
Johnson said she left Planned Parenthood in October 2009
for two reasons. The first was that she was told “we
needed to double our abortion quota, the number of
abortions we had to sell,” she said, noting that policy
went against the mantra around abortion that it should
be “safe, legal and rare.”
But the coup de grace for Johnson, in a gripping scene
portrayed in the film Unplanned, was viewing an
ultrasound-guided abortion of a 13 week pre-born child.
“Seeing that child fight and struggle for his life
against the abortion instrument,” made her realize
“there was life in the womb, humanity in the womb.”
As a “proud feminist,” Johnson said she realized “what I
had seen in the womb was a grave injustice.”
“I now go around the world, speaking about against
abortion and the abortion industry,” said Johnson,
who is the co-founder and director of And Then There
Were None, an organization dedicated to helping abortion
workers “get out of their jobs.”
Her organization has helped about 500 abortion workers
leave the industry. Since the movie Unplanned played in
2,000 screens in the U.S. even more abortion workers are
Johnson said she is deeply troubled by the lack of legal
protection for the unborn in Canada.
“I’m also deeply concerned that many people here have
not been able to speak publicly, because they are
concerned about punishment,” she said. “That is not
democracy; that is oppression.”
Johnson said she knows of Canadian women who have come
to the U.S. for late-term abortions paid for by Canadian
tax dollars. The fact these women have to leave Canada
for the procedure is a sign Canadians are uneasy about
the issue and that is far from “settled,” Johnson said.
She pointed out Canada abolished slavery in 1834. “What
would have happened if people in Canada had convinced
themselves they not going to concern ourselves with
slavery because the issue is settled?”
“It should concern all of us,” Johnson said. “We should
never look at any form of injustice and call it
Wheeler said there are two ways Canadians can see
Unplanned. They can rent buses and drive to the United
States, or independent groups and parishes can obtain a
license to screen the movie.
“We’re not defeated by this,” Wheeler said. “Canadians
want Unplanned here.”
Neither of Canada’s big chains have any plans to exhibit
“The film Unplanned presently does not have a
distributor in Canada to market and undertake the
necessary work, including for example securing the
applicable provincial sensor certifications, to release
the film across the country,” said Jack Gardner,
vice-president of marketing, sales and content
programming for Landmark cinemas.
“At one point, the film was to be distributed in Canada
by Level Films, and since that time, the producers have
unsuccessfully secured a partner to distribute the film
“The producers have inquired as to Landmark’s interest
in distributing the film directly, and we are seeking
additional information in regards to evaluating this
scenario as we do not distribute films, but rather
exhibit films in partnership with a films’ distributor,”
A spokeswoman for Cineplex said no distributor had
approached them about exhibiting Unplanned.
Konzelman said either chain could let distributors know
they were interested in showing the movie and Unplanned
a “distributor would jump to the fore.”
“Given the censorship in place, individual sponsorship
is the only way in which we will be able to show in
Canada,” Konzelman said. “We will be granting licences
for individual showings, at a time and place of the
sponsor’s choosing — which can be a theater, if desired,
or a parish hall, or any other venue.”

I want to say thank you to the
155,586 active citizens who helped us build a pro-life
army to defend the pre-born here and abroad.
Last week, we traveled to the United Nations (UN) to
testify at the sixty-third session of the Commission on
the Status of Women (CSW) to oppose urgent threats
against our values.
I had the pleasure to join my pro-life colleagues Ann
Kioko from Kenya and David Cooke from Canada And, thanks
to our supporters, our work made an impact.
Each year, UN Members States send delegates from their
capitals to represent them to negotiate an outcomes
document. Results from the outcomes document have
serious global implications, as CSW is the primary
conference to decide on how billions in development aid
money will be spent to help women and girls worldwide.
The outcomes document is required to have agreed upon
conclusions from the Member States represented to be
As we expected, finding solutions to eradicate poverty
and hunger, improve health and education, and produce
clean water were among the least of the UN's priorities.
Instead of focusing on these basic needs, liberals
pushed a controversial agenda:
⦁ free access to abortion for all women and girls
⦁ abortion as a fundamental human right
⦁ unlimited access to condoms and other methods of birth
⦁ sexual orientation and gender identity
⦁ changing the definition of the family unit
⦁ comprehensive sexuality education to toddlers
Our supporters made Ann’s powerful testimony to the UN
Ann Kioko had the opportunity to represent CitizenGO,
our members and petition signers, and women and girls
from her country who are being targeted by the United
Nations with the destructive agenda listed above.
Ann gave a beautiful speech to a roomful of UN
Ambassadors, delegates, and civil society.
Ann is brave and courageous, and I am very proud of her.
"Contrary to what the negotiators of some countries
argue here...and..push on countries in the developing
world, a young girl in a village like mine...does not
need policies that prioritize abortion. The women
carrying water cans...(and) their daughters on their
back to go to the hospital...need fully-equipped health
centers, good schools, clothing, they need food on their
tables! They need electricity. They need...proper skills
so they can be good career women... I keep looking
forward to that day the UN and those who are speaking
and working for the women of the world will get the
priorities of the women at the grassroots correct."
Watch Ann’s full speech here:
Our supporters made a fully wrapped bus with a pro-life
The “pro-life bus” was the talk of the UN and made a
significant impact circling the streets of New York
Without donations from our supporters, we couldn’t have
pulled this off.
Though the NYPD prevented us from stopping in front of
the UN, for long periods, after some complaints from
liberal activist, we were still able to keep it circling
the UN for delegates to see.
Many UN delegates and other supporters took pictures
with the bus. One person launched her coffee at the bus
On the final day of CSW, a group of young pro-lifers
joined us to rally around and on the bus.
The mission of the pro-life bus was apparent. It was one
tool we used to get the petition signers’ voices heard
and our message across. You can ignore this large
message directly in front of you.
Watch this video of Ann presenting the pro-life bus:
Our supporters made the petition stronger and gave it a
voice of its own…
155,586 active citizens joined our call to action by
signing our petition to encourage delegates to oppose
anti-life, anti-family propositions boldly.
And many of them did, including the US Mission under the
direction of President Donald Trump.
After we met with representatives of President Trump and
informed them of the petition, Ambassador Cherith Chalet
and the US Mission gave us their word that they would
defend pre-born babies and fight against the
comprehensive sexuality education (CSE).
And, indeed that they did!
Ambassador Cherith Chalet was targeted by liberal media
for standing against the Planned Parenthood funded
Our supporters made positive aspects of the outcome
This year's CSW turned out to be the biggest one ever.
There were over 5,000 representatives from various NGOs,
along with nearly 2,000 delegates, and 86 foreign
This made our presence even more critical.
The outcome was not as positive as we would have liked.
I am proud to announce that we helped push back the
abortion lobby’s attempt to make abortion an
internationally agreed upon human right.
But, the left has found sneaky ways to include ambiguous
language that attacks the family unit and provides a
horrible alternative to abstinence in their calls for an
education overhaul. These results come despite push
backs from upwards of as many as 21 countries as to the
process of agreeing on a consensus and final outcome.
The Saudi and Bahraini delegations stormed out of the
meeting after their objections to the document were not
heard by the CSW chair, Geraldine Byrne Nason, Ireland's
permanent representative to the United Nations.
According to the C-Fam.org Friday Fax, “The Saudi and
Bahraini delegations complained about language in the
agreement on sexual and reproductive health as a vehicle
to promote abortion, the absence of any mention of the
family “as the natural and fundamental group unit of
society” in line with international law, and the failure
to include any language about the importance of
sovereignty. They protested that Koki Muli (CSW chief
negotiator) did not respect their requests and waited
until the very end of the negotiations to discuss
They were not alone in expressing a lack of consensus on
abortion-related language, the inadequate attention to
the family, and the flawed negotiations and adoption
The Holy See, the United States, Guatemala, Comoros,
Bahrain, Belarus, Cameroon, Djibouti, Libya, Indonesia,
Iran, Iraq, Gambia, Malaysia, Mauritania, Nicaragua,
Pakistan, the Russian Federation, Sudan, Zambia,
Zimbabwe, expressed the same concerns.”
Please read more on the controversy and outcomes here:
I, again, want to thank our many supporters who donated
and the signed our petition.
Though the outcome wasn’t as we expected, we look
forward to changing this document during the next
opportunity we have and fighting for our values always

about RHA, protect children and their mothers, protect
the rights of pro-life persons to engage in life-saving
activities and express their views, and to build a

The law appears to
restrict late-term abortions, but it adds a broad
“health” exception for abortions after 24 weeks. The
exception would allow women to abort unborn babies up to
nine months of pregnancy for basically any reason,
including “age, economic, social and emotional factors,”
according to New York Right to Life.

most of those who identify as Republicans (92 percent),

Andrew Cuomo can claim to be a Catholic but there’s
little doubt left that he’ totally out of step with the

signed a bill legalizing abortions up to birth. Now, the

reason for one Catholic bishop to rip the governor:
The bishop of the
Diocese of Alabany attempted to convince New York
Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo not to sign a bill that
removes all restrictions on abortion in the state, but
Cuomo signed it anyway.
In an open letter
in The Evangelist, the Most Rev. Edward B.
Scharfenberger condemned Cuomo’s support of abortion
before the governor signed the Reproductive Health Act (RHA),
which repealed the state’s 24-week abortion ban, among
other things. Scharfenberger penned the open letter
ahead of Cuomo’s signing ceremony.
“Although in your
recent State of the State address you cited your
Catholic faith and said we should ‘stand with Pope
Francis,’ your advocacy of extreme abortion legislation
is completely contrary to the teachings of our pope and
our Church,” Scharfenberger said. “Once truth is
separated from fiction and people come to realize the
impact of the bill, they will be shocked to their core.
By that time, however, it may be too late to save the
countless lives that will be lost or spare countless
women lifelong regret.”
The bishop said
the recently signed legislation “threatens to rupture
the communion between the Catholic faith and those who
support the RHA” because of the bill’s “aggressive
“It is very
difficult to understand how you can align yourself with
Pope Francis and so vehemently advocate such profoundly
destructive legislation,” Scharfenberger said. “I find
myself wondering how it can be viewed as ‘progress’ to

to one that urges women to ‘shout your abortion’ as some
advocates of this bill boldly announce.”

Crisis Pregnancy Centers win Supreme Court Victory
As it ended its term, the Supreme Court delivered a
major victory to crisis pregnancy centers by siding with
the First Amendment against a California that forced
these centers to post a 29-word, 48-point-font notice in
up to 13 languages referring clients to free or low-cost
abortions. Liberty Counsel represented three-crisis
pregnancy centers challenging California's forced
abortion speech law at the High Court.
But, when I got to page 7 of the opinion, I was very
excited to read about two of our cases involving laws
that banned change counsel in California and New Jersey.
We challenged both laws, but the two Courts of Appeal
upheld them and created a new “professional speech"
category, thus providing less protection.
The Supreme Court criticized these lower court opinions
and rejected a lower level of “professional speech."
This means the handwriting is on the wall that laws
banning counsel for unwanted same-sex attractions,
behavior, or identity will fall under the First
Amendment Free Speech Clause.The
Court's findings explicitly adopt the arguments Liberty
Counsel has made all along in counseling cases, which is
that there is no such thing as "professional speech"
that is relegated to less protection under the First

California's AB 2943 is among the most overreaching

the list of 25 conservative leaders, most of whom
already are judges on federal circuit courts and state
“We need intellect, we need so many things,”
Trump said at a rally Wednesday in North Dakota.
“There is so many elements that goes into the making of
a great justice of the Supreme Court. …
“Democrats want judges who will rewrite the Constitution
any way they want to do it, and take away your Second
Amendment, erase your borders, throw open the jailhouse
doors and destroy your freedoms,” he continued.
Leading abortion advocates like Planned Parenthood
already are putting the wheels in motion for fundraising
and political action plans to attempt to stop any
nominee who might overturn Roe v Wade. That will
put the onus on pro-life advocates to step up their
fundraising and put up concerted efforts to ensure the
next Supreme Court justice is someone who will respect
the rule of law rather than make up a fictitious
abortion right from the bench.
The good news for pro-life advocates is that Republicans
hold a small majority in the Senate and have been
successful in approving Trump’s nominees on a majority
vote. Sen. McConnell has been successful in ensuring
that the Senate can vote on such nominees without a
filibuster by pro-abortion Democrats.
President Trump Makes Planned Parenthood Defunding
Official, Rule Would Cut $60 Million in Taxpayer Funding
Steven Ertelt May 23, 2018 | 9:42AM Washington,
Donald Trump yesterday made his proposed rule official
to defund Planned Parenthood of the $60 million dollars
that it receives via Title X Family Planning dollars.
Last week the president said the rule would be
forthcoming and late Tuesday the Trump
Administration released the text to the proposed rule,
which will go into effect after a standard 60-day public
the second time Trump has taken steps to revoke taxpayer
funding for the nation’s biggest abortion business —
after yanking taxpayer from from International Planned
Parenthood during his first week in office.
proposed rule contains three important parts. The first
prohibits recipients of taxpayer funds under Title X
from referring women for abortions. The second requires
companies that receive Family Planning funds to maintain
separate facilities that do abortions as opposed to
having their abortion businesses in the same facility as
the Family Planning business. Because that is something
Planned Parenthood refuses to do, it will no longer be
eligible for taxpayer funding under President Trump’s
section of the rule requires recipients of the Title 10
Family Planning dollars to ensure that they follow all
state and local laws requiring reporting of child abuse.
Interestingly, the Planned Parenthood abortion company
has repeatedly run afoul of such laws by refusing to
report cases of child abuse or rape to law enforcement
officials after killing the babies of young teenage
girls in abortions.
The proposed rule is available here, and it will be
available for public comment for 60 days after it is
published in the Federal Register.
preamble of the proposed rule explains that the
statutory authority for the Title X program “contains
the following prohibition, which has not been altered
since it was enacted in 1970: ‘None of the funds
appropriated under this title shall be used in programs
where abortion is a method of family planning.’” The
preamble then goes on to state that the Department
interprets this section “to establish a broad
prohibition on funding, directly or indirectly,
activities related to abortion as a method of family
planning…The Department has determined that the existing
regulations do not ensure compliance with the
prohibition” in the original statute.
new key sections are as follows:
Section 59.14, Prohibits Title X projects from referring
“A Title X project may not perform, promote, refer for,
or support, abortion as a method of family planning, nor
take any other affirmative action to assist a patient to
secure such an abortion. If asked, a medical provider
may [emphasis added] provide a list of licensed,
qualified, comprehensive health service providers (some,
but not all of which also provide abortion, in addition
to comprehensive prenatal care), but only if a woman who
is currently pregnant clearly states that she has
already decided to have an abortion.”
Section 59.15, Requires Title X entities to maintain
physical and financial separation
“A Title X project must be organized so that it is
physically and financially separate …. from activities
which are prohibited…”[abortion]. The proposed rule
outlines factors for the Secretary to take into
consideration to determine whether objective integrity
and independence exists, including; “the existence of
separate and accurate accounting records,” “the degree
of separation from facilities,” and “the existence of
Section 59.17, Compliance with abuse reporting
“Title X projects shall comply with all State and local
laws requiring notification or reporting of child abuse,
child molestation, sexual abused, rape, incest, intimate
partner violence, or human trafficking (collectively
‘State notification laws’).”In order to receive funds,
projects must provide documentation in a number of
areas, including a plan to comply with State laws,
annual training of all individuals serving clients on
behalf of the Title X project, and protocols to counsel
minors on how to resist coercion, etc.
PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood
Trump talked about the new rule last night
in a speech to the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List.
we have kept another promise. My administration
has proposed a new rule to prohibit Title X funding from
going to any clinic that provides abortions,” he
comments to LifeNews, Catherine Glenn Foster, President
and CEO of Americans United for Life, applauded the
proposed rule saying “it will go a long way toward
getting taxpayers out of the business of funding
abortionists like Planned Parenthood. Women can do much
better than Planned Parenthood. Comprehensive,
preventive healthcare centers outnumber Planned
Parenthood 20 to 1, and that’s where women receive
genuine expert care without the shadow of abortion
hanging over them.”
McGuire is a Senior Fellow with The Catholic
Association,agreed, telling LifeNews: “Americans don’t
want their hard-earned tax dollars paying for abortions,
a fact polling consistently confirms. In redirecting
Title X funding to nonviolent women’s health centers,
the government ensures that the needs of low income
women will continue to be served without lining the
pockets of corporate abortion giant, Planned
States spends about $260 million in Title X funds
annually for family planning for low-income individuals,
and Planned Parenthood is a huge recipient of those
funds, as much as $50-$60 million annually — which will
be cut off after the rule goes into effect.
proposal does not necessarily defund Planned Parenthood,
as long as they’re willing to disentangle taxpayer funds
from abortion as a method of family planning, which is
required by the Title X law,” a Trump administration
official said. “Any grantees that perform, support, or
refer for abortion have a choice – disentangle
themselves from abortion or fund their activities with
privately raised funds.”
Planned Parenthood is unwilling to do so. Abortion is
its primary focus, and it already is threatening a
lawsuit to stop the defunding. However, the proposal is
modeled after similar Reagan administration rules that
the U.S. Supreme Court upheld in Rust v. Sullivan
proposal comes amid strong pleas from grassroots
Americans and members of Congress to defund the abortion
giant Planned Parenthood. In April,
154 U.S. House members sent a letter to HHS Secretary
Alex Azar asking for a rule to prohibit tax dollars
from being use to promote abortions.
funds are supposed to be used to help low-income women
and men receive birth control, cancer screenings and
other health care services. While the tax money cannot
be used to pay for abortions, it indirectly funds
Planned Parenthood’s vast abortion business.
administration has cut several other streams of funding
to Planned Parenthood as well. Soon after Trump took
office, he signed the Mexico City Policy to prevent the
funding of groups that promote or perform abortions
overseas. This includes the International Planned
Parenthood Federation, which received tax dollars under
the Obama administration.
addition, in 2017, the Trump administration
cut millions of dollars in grants to Planned
Parenthood through the failed Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Program. HHS spokesman Mark Vafiades
told the New York Times last year that there is very
little evidence that the program was successful.
However, the abortion chain recently filed a lawsuit
challenging the cuts.
Parenthood is the largest abortion business in America,
aborting approximately 320,000 unborn babies every year.
most recent annual report showed a record income of
$1.46 billion, with about half a billion dollars coming
U.S. Department of Justice said it is investigating
whether the abortion chain illegally sold aborted
baby body parts.
President Trump Ends Taxpayer Funding to Two Biggest
Abortion Businesses in Africa
Micaiah Bilger May 22, 2018 | 10:13AM
no longer are giving money to the two biggest abortion
businesses in Africa, thanks to a 2017 Trump
making a huge difference for life.
Stopes International, a British-based abortion chain,
and the International Planned Parenthood Federation
received millions of USAID tax dollars under
pro-abortion President Barack Obama to provide and
advocate for abortions in Africa.
President Donald Trump cut that funding under the Mexico
City Policy, which prohibits tax dollars from funding
international groups that provide or promote abortions.
Stopes programs in Burkina Faso are slated to close in
June as a result of the cuts,
Devidiscourse News reports.
abortion chain’s budget for its Burkina Faso programs
came entirely from U.S. tax dollars; it would have shut
down sooner if the British government had not provided
tax dollars to make up for the U.S. cuts, according to
Stopes leaders in Africa said they employed ten women in
Burkina Faso to offer “advice on family planning and
reproductive healthcare.” This almost certainly included
abortion, even though killing unborn babies is illegal
in many African countries.
more from the report:
the International Planned Parenthood Federation are
among only four to reject the conditions of the [Mexico
City Policy.] They offer abortion services, in

administration did not cut any foreign aid when it
instituted the pro-life policy, and of the more than 700
groups that receive USAID,
only four refused to comply. That is a compliance
rate of 99.5 percent.
Previous news reports indicate that two of the four
groups that refused to comply are International Planned

increase of 13.5 percent over 2015, and
received more than $27 million in U.S. government
grants in 2015-2016.

received U.S. taxpayer funding. Like Planned Parenthood

Trump Administration Expands Mexico City Policy to
Further Prevent Foreign Aid Funding Abortion
Washington, D.C.: The U.S. State
Department issued a report late yesterday with an update
on the expansions to the "Mexico City Policy"
re-authorized by President Trump on his third day in
office. This policy was first signed by President Ronald
Reagan in 1984, and later again by President Bush in
2001. It curtails the use of foreign aid dollars going
to to non-governmental organizations that "perform or
actively promote abortion as a method of family
planning." The Trump Administration not only reinstated
the Bush 2001 version of this policy, but has expanded
it, renaming the initiative "Protecting Life in Global
"Reinstating this policy just days into office
solidified support for the president from many pro-life
people across the country," said Ed Martin, President of
Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. "We are encouraged to see not
only continued implementation of it but an expansion
into more departments and more foreign aid. These types
of executive policies have well-earned the reputation
that Donald Trump is one of the most pro-life Presidents
we have experienced.
"The new Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance
policies cover nearly $9 billion in U.S. foreign aid
funds," said Rebekah Gantner, Executive Director of
Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund. "We support
this expansion from the Trump Administration and look
forward to their monitoring the organizations who accept
this funding. We hope to see such strides made as
well in domestic policies that will protect the right to
life of pre-born Americans!"

doubles down on awarding Dutch abortion activist with
VATICAN CITY, January 26, 2018 (LifeSiteNews)
– Vatican officials are not backing down from awarding a
leading Dutch abortion activist a pontifical honor, nor
do they plan to do additional vetting or change their
procedure of exchanging such diplomatic honors in the
Controversy arose earlier this month when leading
abortion activist Liliane Ploumen displayed on Dutch
television a pontifical honor bestowed on her during a
visit to the Vatican in June 2017.
Ploumen boasted that she had received a “high
distinction from the Vatican, from the Pope,” in a
noted that while the award is the highest papal
honor given by the Vatican, "Ploumen, who has identified
as Catholic, is not considered a Dame of the Order of
St. Gregory by the fact that she received the medal
bearing his name. To be a Dame in the Order, she would
have gone through an investiture ceremony with a

out to the Vatican for an explanation for awarding a

homosexuality – such an honor.

would be implemented in the future to prevent it

procedure’ for such an ‘historic occasion’ and was

something that ‘has been done many times in the past for

‘going to visit someone else’s house as a guest, and who
comes with companions,” continues the
report. “One shows a minimum amount of respect to

week Paloma García Ovejero, deputy spokesperson of the
Holy See Press Office, said: “The honor of the
Pontifical Order of St. Gregory the Great received by
Mrs. Lilianne Ploumen, former Minister of Development,
in June 2017 during the visit of the Dutch Royals to the
Holy Father, responds to the diplomatic practice of the
exchange of honors between delegations on the occasion
of official visits by Heads of State or Government in
Ovejero insisted that the award, “is not in the
slightest a placet (an expression of assent) to the
politics in favor of abortion and of birth control that
Mrs Ploumen promotes.”
Critics maintain, nevertheless, that the optics remain
troubling and that awarding a high honor to Ploumen
continues to remain a grave concern.

Academy for Life, carefully distanced himself from the
controversy last week, saying he had no part in the

website, is a “global movement” meant to “support the

whether, when, with whom and how many children they
have. This includes having access to modern
contraception, to sexual and relationship literacy and
is unapologetic about our focus on the full spectrum of
sexual and reproductive rights and health,” the site
continues, “including safe abortion and comprehensive
According to a joint report filed by
OnePeterFive and The Lepanto Institute, which broke
the story, “The SheDecides initiative came in response
to the funding gap for “family planning” facilities
around the world created after U.S. President Donald

services. Within six months, SheDecides — which has the
support of 60 countries — had received pledges totaling
$300 million (USD)."
this occurred within the months immediately preceding
Ploumen’s reception of the Vatican Award in June 2017.
“It’s difficult to be dismissive of Ploumen’s award as a
simple oversight,” a

out, “which lends some Vatican watchers to wonder if

"It’s scandalous that the
United Methodist General Board of Church and Society is
lobbying in favor of Planned Parenthood federal
funding," Institute on Religion and Democracy President
Mark Tooley, a Methodist, told LifeSiteNews.
Tooley says his denomination
is slowly transitioning from promoting a culture of
death to affirming life. "United Methodism is heading in
an increasingly pro-life direction and last year
required the board to quit the Religious Coalition for
Reproductive Choice. The board in its abortion rights

"The ongoing effort to bring

"sometimes contradict and fight with each other."
"In the United Methodist
Church’s structure, there is only one body that can
officially speak, represent, or DO anything on behalf of
the entire United Methodist Church," Lomperis explained.
"It’s called the General Conference. Its members are
called delegates and are elected every four years, and I
am one such delegate."
Lomperis went even further to
illlumine the pro-abortion role of the GBCS. "This GBCS
has long existed as a 'rogue agency' that only
represents the most radical left wing minority of the
church," he said. "We have been trying to bring
accountability, but it has been a long struggle."
The U.S. House passed a bill
to replace ObamaCare and defund Planned Parenthood, but
the Senate has yet to act.
It is important to note that
the legislative effort to “defund” Planned Parenthood is
misnamed. Planned Parenthood businesses charge for their

The House bill ensures health
care access by redirecting tax funds to legitimate

ND - When an ambulance was summoned on Wednesday to the
Red River Women's Clinic abortion facility in Fargo,
North Dakota, paramedics discovered that the gurney they
used could not fit in the front door.
Instead, they went around to the back
door and brought the patient out into an alley filled
with trash dumpsters.
"It's almost like the Red River Women's
Clinic sent this woman out with the trash," said Troy
Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "Their only
employee seen at the scene wore a pink eared-hat that
vulgarly objectifies women and reduces them to merely
their reproductive parts. It is a disgusting view of
women that should make the Red River Women's Center
staff blush with embarrassment."

The Governor is deeply confused about the abortion issue. He is confused in believing that the lives of unborn children are insignificant and disposable. He is confused in perceiving support for abortion as a pro-woman stance; in reality, many post-abortive women regret their abortions, many women are pressured or coerced into abortion, and at least half of aborted babies are female. Finally, the Governor is confused in his apparent belief that full-throated support for abortion on demand is his ticket to winning female voters--both here in New York and across the nation.
On January 30, the Governor declared, "Make no mistake, we will always protect the right to choose in New York." Governor, make no mistake: New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms and our allies will always protect the right to life in New York.

administration needs to cancel two regulations in
The first is
the infamous Mandate requiring even religiously
affiliated institutions to have contraception and some
early abortifacients offered free in their health care
plans. The feds have not yet stopped chasing and
threatening the Little Sisters to force their will on
The second is
a regulation you may not have heard a lot about yet. It
was issued in connection with section 1557 of the
Affordable Care Act (ACA) by the Department of Health
and Human Services. Section 1557 forbids “sex
discrimination” in any health program or activity.
Obviously, “sex” means discrimination because a person
is male or female, and Congress has always been clear
about that. The Obama administration’s
new rule however, defines “sex” to include –
among other things - discrimination based on
“termination of pregnancy.” Of course, abortion-friendly
judges and regulators will be only too happy to read
this to require the provision of, or coverage or
referral for, abortion.
The rule has
no conscience protection attached. Some people believe
that an earlier enacted conscience rule might help (the
Weldon Amendment), but the Obama administration has
interpreted that rule narrowly so that it would not
likely protect us.
The idea that
abortion is so essential to women’s freedom that it is
“sex discrimination” to fail to embrace abortion is just
sick. Any feminism possessed of a heart + rational mind
So how do we
get the Trump administration to get rid of these awful
legacies of the Obama administration? Well, if Congress
actually overturns the Affordable Care Act, the
regulations attached to it would be out the window.
Congress and the President-elect are seriously
suggesting that option–but it could take them a while,
meantime, how can we protect institutions that object to
contraception and abortion coverage? Two ways are
1. A Trump
administration Health and Human Services Agency might
write new regs protecting conscience rights. But
remember this requires first, “proposed rules,” then
notice and comment periods, then final rules. Time
consuming, but it’s a possible avenue.
2. A Trump
administration could also provide guidance to agencies
not to prioritize enforcement of bad rules, while
working to replace them with good ones. Also possible.
We need to
start making some noise about undoing these regs.
Everyone should say something, but medical personnel –

How to use social media to mobilize
How to build coalitions
How to mobilize citizens for mass
How to persuade an audience
How to design a legislative strategy
How to lobby
The Bishops asked us to provide this
training. They see it as the best way to
protect their people from the population
control plans of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Duterte was sworn in as President on June
10--and immediately began talking about a Three-Child Policy.
Will it be modeled on the Two-Child Policy
Maybe Duterte is doing this because he is
ideologically so close to China – that’s the
biggest trading partner, after all.
You know what this kind of population
control meant in China: pregnancy police,
government-granted pregnancy licenses,
forced abortions and forced sterilizations….
The most anti-human rights, anti-human life
activity the world has ever seen.
We can’t let that happen to the Philippines,
the most Catholic country in the world.
Over 80% of the people of the Philippines
This bad idea must be stopped in its tracks.
The birthrate is already going down in the
Philippines. The total fertility rate is
already below replacement levels. But
that doesn’t stop President Duterte!
The road to a three-child policy has been
slowly paved for decades.
A 1967 Declaration on Population and
established a Population Commission. In
1970, Executive Order 233 empowered the
Population Commission to start a national
In 1971, The Population Act was passed,
making family planning part of national
development strategy. Ever since then, a
little bit at a time,
more policies have been put into place
that give the government power over the
fertility of its citizens.
Today the Responsible Parenthood and
Reproductive Health Act is on the books –
and it’s the law that Duterte can use to
start a pregnancy police in the Philippines.
Involuntary population control is a very
real threat in the Philippines.
But only if the Catholic people of the
Philippines don’t resist these policies
That’s where PRI comes in.
We have been asked to teach the Catholic people how to resist
Forty years of leadership in the pro-life
movement in the US and around the world have
taught PRI how to work every angle, use
every approach, fight every step of the way,
find every new line of defense.
That’s how the pro-life movement has kept
the fight going.
The Bishops of the Philippines have watched
us work around the world. They know PRI can
bring the skills they need: how to change
public opinion, how to put laws under a
microscope, how to build coalitions to stop
In other words, how to work peacefully
within the existing legal and public policy
system to defend the most basic of human
rights, the right to live.
But we have to act right away.
This fight will not wait until next year.
The battle is now!
Here is what the Bishops have asked us to
On September 30,
we will launch the biggest training blitz

Duterte needs to know that his people -- and
the world -- will not tolerate his making a
Three-Child Policy one of his goals.
The Catholic people must make the political
cost to him more than he is expecting.
That’s why the Bishops of the Philippines
asked PRI to do everything we can to train
leaders to mobilize citizen sentiment
against the anti-life, anti-family plans of
Duterte. As soon as possible.

"Me Before You"
Me Before You
is set to be released this Friday, June 3rd. The film
follows a romance between two of its characters, one of
whom eventually ends his life at a suicide clinic
because he does not want to live as a quadriplegic.
Liz Carr, a disability rights activist at
Not Dead Yet UK, explains the terrible message of this
you’re a disabled person, you’re better off dead”.
Whether or not the filmmakers intended
this message, it is certainly there. This is where the
“right to die” (i.e. the right to be killed) movement
Sign here: http://www.citizengo.org/en/lf/34858-new-film-spreads-message-disabled-lives-are-not-worth-living-we-say-they-are
Films like this, which juxtapose the
wonderful life the disabled person once lived, when he
was not disabled, with the difficult life he now lives,
negative portrayal of disability and contribute to the
view that life under conditions of severe disability is
not worth living.
Me Before You,
and the larger movement that inspired the movie, ignore
the inherent dignity and beauty of human life,
regardless of disability.
Campaigners who favor assisted suicide
focus on ‘autonomy’ and ‘choice’, but choices always
exist in a social context. The prejudiced view against
the lives of disabled people in this film is also the
view of too many people in society. The soft bigotry of
low expectations and societal pressure influence the
‘choice’ to commit suicide.
There are sharp disagreements on this
issue, and this issue personally affects many of us, but
Not Dead Yet and other disability advocacy groups are
right to recognise the danger inherent in this film and
the message it sends.
Sign here: http://www.citizengo.org/en/lf/34858-new-film-spreads-message-disabled-lives-are-not-worth-living-we-say-they-are
All persons have inherent dignity and rights and it is a tragedy whenever an individual,
disabled or not, fails to recognise that dignity.
The wish to commit suicide should not be
met with encouragement or submission – it should be met
with assistance to overcome the obstacles that the
person faces. People who are contemplating suicide should
be assisted to live, not to die.
Caroline Craddock and the entire
sign this petition asking Warner Brothers, the producers
of this film, to apologize for the offence they have
caused to many disabled persons who recognise their own
value and do not want to be killed.
Warner Brothers should publicly state
that they do not endorse suicide.

In the film, the
disabled character kills
himself at a suicide clinic. Many

April 07, 2015 by Laurel
New York State Assembly approved a bill that would
codify a “right” to third trimester abortions. Right
now, NY law does not specifically allow third
trimester abortions, except when necessary to save the
life of the mother. (Of course, we know from the Dublin
there are never cases where direct abortion is
AB6221 adds a new
“health” exception, stating that anything “relevant to
the well-being of the patient” – including physical,
emotional, psychological, and familial factors, and
the mother’s age – is grounds for abortion. In other
words, pretty much any reason at all.
For some indefensible
reason, anti-lifers like to make a distinction between
inside and outside the birth canal. Killing an unborn
child inside the womb is just as much infanticide as
killing a child outside the womb. We know
that, but anti-lifers somehow don’t.
logically explain why an unborn child who is one day
away from his due date can be shot
in the heart with poison,
but a new born baby can’t? Unless they want to
explicitly defend infanticide, anti-lifers have some
explaining to do.
Lori Kehoe, New York
State Right to Life Director, told the Christian
“It is ridiculous that in 2015, with all the
technology at our disposal, we are still arguing
whether or not an eight month old baby in the womb
deserves protection. It is doubtful that our
descendants will look kindly upon this period in our
history, when we fought for the right to dismember
babies weeks, days and even minutes before birth.”
“health” exception already exists in every state. Doe
v. Bolton, the companion case to Roe
v. Wade, has a health exception that is so
broad and vague it essentially allows abortion through
all nine months of pregnancy.
Deborah Glick, a chief sponsor of the bill, says “It
guarantees a woman’s life and health can be
what this bill guarantees is that New York would allow
killing babies at any time during pregnancy, even if
the Supreme Court overturned Roe.
Oh, and a side note to
proponents of abortion who think access to abortion
“empowers pregnant women” by giving them control over
their reproductive systems: It doesn’t. It empowers
doctors. What if a woman wants to keep her baby, but
her doctor decides that her well-being is endangered
by the pregnancy? In the eyes of the law, women do not
determine the status of their own health or
well-being, doctors do. Consequently, legal
reproductive “rights” only give women a fleeting sense
of choice…so long as their doctors agree with them.
It will be difficult
for this bill to pass the Senate. But even if it fails
this time, abortion lobbyists will consider the defeat
only temporary. They will try again.
Josh Craddock, a
spokesperson for Personhood USA, tells Prolife.Buzz,
“It’s sad that in the abortion capital of the world,
New York City, Democratic lawmakers are trying to
increase the number of abortions later and later in
pregnancy. Abortion always kills a human being, no
matter what stage of pregnancy it is performed in.”
New York abortion lobbyists are pushing hard to pass
Roe-like legislation at the state level. Why would
they make such an effort, especially in a state as
liberal as New York? They wouldn’t, unless they had a
very real fear of seeing Roe overturned. Let
their fear encourage pro-lifers that the fight is not
in vain, and the defeat in Roe is indeed temporary.

“Capital Punishment” Method for Unborn Babies
Just when you thought
abortion procedures couldn’t be any more debased…
New York legislators
are trying to legalize a new abortion method that will make sure unborn
children are given the same kind of treatment as death row inmates.
Ironically, what New
York is trying to do to unborn children would be seen as “cruel and
unusual punishment” for even the most despicable criminals. And, in fact,
New York does not allow capital punishment for prisoners.
Unborn babies, on the
other hand, are fair game.
How ironic and how
The New York state Assembly proved that

For years, the state legislature has been
embroiled in a mulch-year battle over a package of bills designed to push
the interests of women. The bills have been held up in part because it
includes a measure that would promote late-term abortions in the Empire
State. Despite strenuous support from pro-abortion Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the
legislature has refused to pass the package of bills because of the
The abortion bill would allow an abortion
procedure that has abortionists shooting poison through the hearts of
unborn children to kill them.
Now, the state Assembly has approved part of
the package of bills — specifically the abortion promotion measure
Governor Cuomo strenuously supports.
Today in a vote of 94-49 the New York State
Assembly approved passage of AB 6221, the extreme stand-alone 10th point
from the previously packaged 10-point Women’s Equality Act, which would
expand third-trimester abortions and allow non-doctors to perform
abortions. Since 2013, abortion advocates have been holding the Women’s
Equality Act hostage to this single dangerous bill, refusing to break the
10-point bill up. This session, however, the will of the voters was
finally heard, and the stand-alone bills have been considered.
“Expanding cruel and brutal third-trimester
abortions has long been a goal of the anti-life lobby who never met an
abortion they didn’t like,” said Lori Kehoe, New York State Right to Life
executive director. “With no regard for the fully developed unborn baby
who is violently dismembered, or otherwise killed, the New York State
Assembly once again put the abortion lobby above New York State women and
AB 6221, sponsored by Assemblywoman Glick,
would change existing New York State law, which currently allows for
abortion in the third trimester when the mother’s life is in danger, to
allow abortion on-demand throughout all nine months. The law would be
changed to allow abortion for any reason deemed “relevant to the
well-being of the patient” including physical, emotional, psychological,
and familial factors, and the mother’s age.
AB 6221 has no interest in the life of the
living, developed, unborn human child, stripping away any protections the
smallest members of our human family have.
“We now look once again to the Senate to hold
the line in defense of the children which happens to also be in accordance
with the will of the rest of the people,” added Kehoe. “It is ridiculous
that in 2015, with all the technology at our disposal, we are still
arguing whether or not an eight month old baby in the womb deserves
protection. It is doubtful that our descendants will look kindly upon this
period in our history, when we fought for the right to dismember babies
weeks, days and even minutes before birth.”
For those who
are paying attention, they will notice one thing about these kinds of
procedures and their ramifications.
dehumanizing nature of abortion is pushing humanity into a new dark age.
This kind of
barbarism is spoken against in the Bible and other religious texts, and
shows exactly what kind of ruin awaits us.
In a world
where unborn children — fully functioning humans — can be tossed away like
trash, it’s not a stretch to say all will be treated as such.
While the world
might be less violent than it was a century ago, it’s certainly not any
less murderous… is it?
Are you concerned that you will be paying
for abortion through the new ObamaCare Health plans?
The Government Health Plan was deliberately
written in a confusing complex manner so that the average citizen
(who was considered too stupid to understand it), would not know exactly
what was in it.
It was a pack of lies from the get-go. "You
could keep your plan..., you could keep your doctor..., your cost would
It was passed without being read.
Thank your congressman for that one.
But, now you can find out if you will be
paying for abortion in your new plan.
