Abortion and Healthcare: What’s the real issue?
WASHINGTON, DC, March 12, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Democrats explaining their stubbornness to maintain the abortion funding in the Senate health care bill have admitted that a primary motivation for doing so lies in encouraging more abortions, lest more children born put a strain on government funds, said Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) as reported by National Review Online.

"If you pass the Stupak amendment, more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more. That’s one of the arguments I’ve been hearing [from Democrat leaders],” Stupak said in a phone interview published Friday. “Money is their hang-up. Is this how we now value life in America? If money is the issue — come on, we can find room in the budget. This is life we’re talking about.”

Joseph didn’t mind what the other babies said behind closed playpens. He could see the silver lining in his situation. He heard the stories and hoped they were true as he thought:

“Hey, Tooth Fairy! You better be ready ‘cause Christmas is comin’ early this year for little Joe!”
Hey, there, you...Thanks

Breaking: Man who shot pro-life activist sentenced to life in prison
Harlan Drake, the 33-year-old Michigan man who shot and killed pro-life activist James Pouillon and businessman Mike Fuoss, was sentenced to life in prison without parole yesterday.

Drake’s defense team pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity for the double murders committed Sept. 11, 2009 in the small Michigan town of Owosso, but that defense was thrown out. Drake testified that he didn’t like Pouillon’s graphic aborted babies signs displayed in front of his nieces’ school, and he didn’t want them to have to look at the signs anymore.

Let’s continue to pray for Drake, his conversion and healing for all those involved in this sad case.
Horror: Six aborted babies found by river in Napal
At least six human fetuses were found near the banks of Bishumati River in Kuleshwor, Kathmandu, in January, leading authorities to suspect of foul play by private hospitals involved in illegal abortion. Kathmandu is the nation's capital and the country's largest metropolitan city.

The fetuses were found wrapped in a polythene bag near the banks of the river. Eyewitnesses said that the fetuses could be anywhere from four to five months.

Police suspect private hospitals and clinics involved in illegal abortion to have disposed off the fetuses and said that they have started an investigation into the case.

Abortion has been legalized in Nepal, which is located in south Asia and borders China and India, a few years ago. But some private clinics in the country have been found to offer cheap abortion related services without following proper guidelines, putting at risk the life of the patients.

Hope in the darkness: 151 babies saved in 15 days
In 15 days, 151 lives have already been sparred from the death of abortion! God works in so many amazing ways. If you don’t already get the updates from David Bereit, I recommend you sign up for the latest life-saving stories from across America on the 40 Days for Life national blog.

Here are some of the holy spirit-inspired highlights.

“A young woman walked up to the 40 Days for Life vigil outside an abortion center in Austin, Texas recently. She signed up to join the others in prayer ... and then immediately sat down on the sidewalk and started to cry.

One of the volunteers stopped praying for a moment to approach the young woman, whom she had never met before, and asked her if she needed a hug. This volunteer assumed that the thought of what was going on inside the abortion facility had simply overcome this woman and brought her to tears.

But that wasn't the case. To her surprise, she found out this young woman was crying for another reason.

‘I'm pregnant right now and don't want to be,’ she said. ‘I've already had four abortions.’”

“Two volunteers stood in the rain and prayed at a 40 Days for Life vigil last week as a young man drove up, got out of his car with the engine still running, and walked over to talk to them

‘I just wanted to thank you for being here,’ he said.
‘I know you know what kind of a place this is,’ he said, pointing towards the abortion facility. ‘Can I tell you a story about it?’

The prayer volunteers nodded yes, and the young man began to pour out his heart.

He said a couple of weeks ago, his wife was not at home and he had no idea where she was -- until he got a phone call from the hospital. ‘My wife had been admitted because she was having seizures,’ he said.

At the hospital, he found out his wife was pregnant. It would be a struggle with two young children already, he said, but they'd work it out.

As he spent more time at the hospital, it began to dawn on this young man that no one was telling him the whole truth. He realized something was seriously amiss when his wife told him she'd left her car at an abortion facility. He thinks she went there for a chemical abortion -- the abortion pill. She began to have seizures and was taken to the hospital.

His wife insisted she was still pregnant, but he simply didn't know for sure.

‘I haven't stopped crying in over two weeks,’ he said. ‘What kind of place is this that would do this to a married woman without telling her husband, the father of the baby?’"

Prayer and perseverance work. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
