Supreme Court Duty: Correct Injustice on Lawless Arizona Agenda

Rita Dunaway

Earlier this week, VCA’s Vice President for Public Policy, Rita Dunaway, filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, a coalition of 30 female state legislators from across the country, Concerned Women for America, and Susan B. Anthony List. The brief asks the Court to review a recent decision by the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals which struck down an Arizona law that banned abortion after 20 weeks, except where the mother's life or health is in danger.

Rita Dunaway: "Women Have Been Duped" by Democrats' False Charges

The Background

Throughout the campaign for Governor, Lt. Governor, and Attorney General, Democratic candidates are trying to win women’s votes on Nov. 5 by charging “extremist” Republicans with waging a “War on Women”. It includes the claim that they are even trying to ban contraceptives. However, this is totally and indisputably false, and they know it.

Goals for Churches to Reducing Abortions

Greene Hollowell 2012 150A

Christians are the only ones who can change the abortion culture in Richmond.

Christians will only move when educated and lead by their Pastors. The next important group is Doctors. Abortions can’t be performed if Doctors say ‘NO’ - we will not be involved in killing children.

The following are some suggestions that the Church can consider implementing.

Virginia Christian Alliance Holds Media Accountable

Bob Lewis AP

The VCA network launched into action earlier this week to demand that the Richmond Bureau of the Associated Press correct the false statements it has made about pro-life legislation—statements that could very possibly affect the November election.

In Tuesday night’s debate with E.W. Jackson, Ralph Northam claimed that the recent Virginia pro-life bill referred to by some as “personhood” would criminalize oral contraception and in vitro fertilization.  This claim is utterly false.

Is Abortion a Legitimate Choice?

Unborn Child the essence of innocence

Absolutely not. Consider the following and realize it’s time to take action.

RU-486 - The poison of choice to kill a young, unborn, living human. RU-486 involves two chemicals, specifically designed to kill an innocent child while still in the womb, while it is a painful and bloody experience for the mother.

An Open Letter to All Americans


AN UNBORN CHILD IN THE WOMB IS ALIVE. If it were not alive, it couldn't grow every day. An unborn child in the womb is a human. In spite of the Darwin evolution theory, every product of a woman's womb, since the Creation, has been a human. It is almost comical to even question these facts.

Why is this Hack Still in Business?


“It’s incredulous to see how our government entities pass the buck and allow this ‘doctor’ to open and operate these clinics.  Absolutely incredulous!  Class action suit time!  Against [abortion doctor] Brigham and whatever government entity that dropped the ball.”

“I think state agencies were afraid of raising eyebrows about abortion, but they just should have handled it like they do any other field of medicine.”

The Gosnell Murder Trial and the Conscience of a Nation

hs glessner

Abortion is simply the issue that will not go away. Despite the desires of many to ignore this very uncomfortable topic the reality of its brutality and injustice are becoming more apparent to the public.

Evidence of this is found in the recent conviction of Mr. Kermit Gosnell (who masquerades as a physician) for the first degree murder of three babies who survived his failed abortion attempts. The gruesome details of Gosnell's abortion clinic, which he operated for years without government inspection, have shocked the conscience of a nation. Even many of those who proclaim to be pro-choice are now openly expressing doubts about the morality of abortion.

Victory Alert! U.S. House Passes Historic Bill for Life


Yeas: 228 --- One Big Step for Humanity --- Nays: 196, Bill Passes: "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act"

Summary | The House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a landmark “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (H.R. 1797) by a vote of 228 to 196 along largely party lines with only six Democrats voting “Yea”. The bill, which Cong. Goodlatte and the Judiciary Committee which he chairs approved last week, would ban all abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy when unborn babies are able to experience excruciating pain. Attached below is a slightly edited report from the Family Research Council, followed by a suggestion for action at the bottom.

This is Abortion

The recent conviction and sentencing of Kermit Gosnell, along with the national attention it ultimately commanded, marks an important chapter in the contentious debate about abortion. Many in the pro-life camp were initially outraged about the media’s conspicuous decision to ignore the whole story. But the sad truth is that the silence reveals greater logical consistency than the outrage.

Gosnell’s clinic existed to perform the perfectly lawful service of killing human babies inside their mothers’ wombs. While that act will always be horrific in the minds of some, to many others it is--though perhaps sad and unfortunate--a necessary reality in a world of “reproductive rights.”

If we are honest about it, we must admit that the lawful acts we knew Gosnell to be doing and passively accepted (the same acts that will end the lives of over 3,000 babies in the U.S. today) are only marginally distinct from the unlawful acts that have forever branded Gosnell so deviant as to be practically sub-human.

How arbitrary we are, as a society, in our moral judgments! One physician performs an intentional act that ends the life of a tiny human being, and an army of elite, educated, activists will dedicate their lives to applauding and defending his ability to legally do so. Another physician performs the same act on a tiny human being who has emerged from the woman’s womb, and he is roundly deplored as the brutal criminal of the year.

How is it that a matter of spatial inches or relative anatomical positioning could ever be the dividing line between an act that is celebrated as the facilitation of civil rights--the empowerment of women--and an act that is condemned as heinous murder?   How is it that if an angry boyfriend kills an unborn child he can be prosecuted for homicide, but if the mother kills the same child, it is a private, protected “choice”?

This is the absurdity of legalized abortion. Where do we go from here?

As a modest starting point, we might seek means of investigating claims that Gosnell’s practices were an aberration from the allegedly clean, safe, and dignified business of abortion. Under present circumstances, it is difficult to do so systematically.

In a recent article that appeared in the Washington Post, reporters cited statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to demonstrate the alleged safety of abortion. According to CDC numbers, 10 women died from abortions in 2010, compared with 793 deaths from bicycle accidents.

The comparison is misleading and irresponsible because, in the case of CDC abortion statistics, the numbers that tell the real story are the numbers that aren’t there.   Even states that require abortion reporting do not require reporting to the CDC. The Alan Guttmacher Institute has estimated that the voluntarily reported information excludes data on as many as 45-50% of annual abortions.

Awareness of this “missing data” problem seems to be growing. For instance, a 2011 Chicago Tribune story by Megan Twohey flagged the disparity between the number of Illinois abortion providers that reported required data to state officials (26) and the number of providers actually in business (37). The article also suggested that the state’s data failed to account for as many as 17,000 abortions annually.

Rather than burying deadly realities in spurious statistics, let’s have the intellectual honesty to admit that abortion politics have paved the way for a new kind of “back alley.” Let’s take what we have learned from the Gosnell tragedy and insist, at the very least, upon meaningful oversight of businesses built upon human demolition.

But let’s not stop there. Let’s be “enlightened” enough to admit that we are hypocrites when we accept legalized abortion as a paragon of civil rights but we cringe in horror at the mention of snipped baby spinal cords. We have strained out a gnat and swallowed a camel.

Yes, our judiciary has hijacked our ability to maintain morally consistent, life-honoring laws. But we, the people, must never rest in our efforts to reassert our authority and restore our collective integrity.
