Several of the Pro-Life Action League staff went to Chicago’s Music Box Theatre last night to catch a showing of the film After Tiller, a documentary that follows the four abortionists—LeRoy Carhart, Warren Hern, Shelley Sella, and Susan Robinson—who continue to perform very late-term abortions in the US after the murder of George Tiller in 2009.
It was especially surreal sitting one row in front of a group of hard-core abortion-supporting feminists. Early in the film there is discussion of recent restrictions on abortion, including bans on abortion after 20 weeks. At the mention of the fact that a 20 week old fetus can feel pain, one lady behind us muttered, “Bulls**t!”
But as the camera later panned across a shot of abortionist Leroy Carhart’s horses as he talked of other horses he lost in a fire supposedly started by anti-abortion activists (though this has never been proven), the ladies behind us gasped in horror.
Horror for dying horses, and “bullsh**t” for babies being torn limb from limb. These conflicting sentiments were just one example of the contradictions and moral blindness that were at the root of After Tiller. [Continue reading ...]
On the same day when Nancy Pelosi holds a press conference and dances around a question about the difference between late-term abortions and the babies born alive and then killed by Kermit Gosnell, Live Action has released the latest installment in their Inhuman: Undercover in America’s Late-Term Abortion Industry video series.
Among the highlights:
Watch the whole thing:
The scandal of the IRS persecuting conservative and pro-life groups continues to unfold, and today Congress heard from activist Sue Martinek of the Coalition for Life of Iowa.
Check out the video above where Sue chronicles how the IRS unlawfully inquired into the content of the group’s prayers and said they wouldn’t approve their application for tax-exempt status unless they signed an affidavit swearing not to protest Planned Parenthood!
Our attorneys at the Thomas More Society were able to secure tax-exempt status for Coalition for Life of Iowa, but now that the IRS’s inappropriate actions have come to light before Congress, we may finally see the IRS called to account. Until then, continue to spread the word about this scandal far and wide!
McMahon called Gosnell “a dream client” who was “a complete gentleman” during the two and a half years the two men have known each other. And while McMahon admitted that “things went a bit awry” at the notorious Women’s Medical Society, he said it was “simplistic” to lay the blame at Gosnell’s feet. Instead, McMahon said, the real problem was that the state of Pennsylvania had turned a blind eye on the likes of Gosnell for 18 years.
It’s not as if McMahon was going to go on national TV and throw Gosnell under the bus, so his comments should come as no surprise. He was, after all, the lawyer that Gosnell paid to represent him, so one would expect McMahon to say nice things about his client, deflect blame and point the finger elsewhere, etc.
But the most surprising part of the interview came at the 8:15 mark, when McMahon had this to say about late-term abortion: [Continue reading ...]

We’re currently working on a compilation of video highlights from Chicago’s Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally, but there’s already a great deal of footage from the rally posted on YouTube. Citizen journalism at its finest!
Following a spirited march from Federal Plaza to Daley Plaza, Father Frank “Rocky” Hoffman led off the rally with a rousing talk:
On August 16, the man pictured to the right attacked pro-lifer Kevin Rilott while he was engaged in a “Face the Truth” Tour in Rockford, Illinois.
As you can see in the video below, the man and his companion went on a profanity-riddled tirade that would make a sailor blush before throwing Kevin’s sign and physically assaulting him.
Rockford police were provided with Kevin’s testimony, the license plate number of the car, and video of the incident documenting the man’s name and his crime. Kevin was told the case would be handed over to a detective, and they would be in contact with him.
As of today—nearly two weeks after the incident—Kevin has heard nothing from police. [Continue reading ...]
Here’s the shocking video of the attack upon pro-life activist Kevin Rilott during last Thursday’s Rockford Face the Truth Day. The video was shot by Kevin himself and I handled the video production. Raw footage of the attack was provided to Rockford Police. They are seeking the man, who is apparently named “Jacob.”

As a group of pro-lifers were praying and sidewalk counseling outside the Albany Medical Surgical Center abortion facility in Chicago on the morning of July 26, two Chicago Police cars arrived around 10:15 a.m., and three officers entered the building.
Five minutes later they came back out, along with Albany employee Diana Maracick, who pointed to one of the group’s veteran sidewalk counselors, 64-year old Anna Marie Mesia. Officer Julie Felsenthal then approached her.
Officer Felsenthal told her that she was not allowed to touch anyone. Anna Marie replied that she hadn’t touched anyone. Officer Felsenthal then told Anna Marie the police had received a complaint that she had touched someone the previous day (Wednesday, July 25), and that she was under arrest.
Anna Marie said that she wasn’t even there that day — and, in fact, hadn’t been there since the previous Thursday, July 19.
But her protests were of no avail, and she was arrested anyway. [Continue reading ...]
