She has been in jail ever since on charges of “mischief: interference with lawful enjoyment/operation of a business,” and and breach of a probation order that prohibits her from being within 200 meters of any place where abortions are performed in Ontario.
This was the sixth time Mary had been arrested since she began her campaign of civil disobedience in March 2010. Since then, she has spent nearly three years in prison.
As a graduate of the University of Notre Dame (class of 1950) and a former instructor there, I was happy to see that Notre Dame has refiled its lawsuit challenging the federal government’s Health and Human Services mandate that religious employers must provide contraceptive coverage (including abortion-inducing drugs) to their employees.
The lawsuit [PDF] was filed Tuesday in the Northern District of Indiana. It says the government does not have the right to impose any rules on the university that violates its Roman Catholic principles, but that the University should have the same blanket exemption that applies to houses of worship.
Notre Dame had first filed against the government in May of last year, but a federal judge deemed it premature because the Obama administration had not yet enforced the mandate, but held it off until January 2014.
Father John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame, said the lawsuit is about one of America’s most cherished freedoms: the freedom to practice one’s religion without government interference. [Continue reading ...]
Every year the Pro-Life Action League brings the joy and hope of Christmas to the darkness of the abortuary with our “Empty Manger” Christmas Caroling day.
Now more than ever, we need to be actively engaged in fighting abortion on the ground outside our nation’s abortion facilities. Sometimes that means sidewalk counseling, sometimes that means protesting, and sometimes that means bringing the good news of the birth of Jesus Christ to the doors of the abortion clinic with peaceful Christmas caroling.
In recent years, more and more pro-life activists around the country have started holding their own Christmas caroling events at abortion clinics, and now it’s your turn to get involved in this Advent pro-life ministry.
To help you do just that, the Pro-Life Action League has put together some resources that will make your caroling day a success: [Continue reading ...]
Dr. Mary Davenport
Today, Dr. Mary Davenport, MD, FACOG reports at American Thinker about a shocking study out of China confirming the link between abortion and breast cancer.
Though the abortion industry and their advocates have done everything in their power to deny and cover up this link (also covered in Dr. Davenport’s must-read article), the new study, pooling 36 studies from 14 provinces in China, showed that abortion increased the risk of breast cancer by 44% with one abortion, and 76% and 89% with two and three abortions, respectively.
That’s right. Two abortions increases your risk of breast cancer by 76%! When you factor in that half of abortions in the US are repeat abortions, that means that well over half a million women each year are exposing themselves to an incredible risk for breast cancer, all while Planned Parenthood, NARAL and their ilk insist that there’s no connection at all.

On Monday the liberal magazine Mother Jones reported:
The European manufacturer of an emergency contraceptive pill identical to Plan B, also known as the morning-after pill, will warn women that the drug is completely ineffective for women who weigh more than 176 pounds and begins to lose effectiveness in women who weigh more than 165 pounds. [emphasis added]
The article also states:
Weight data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that, at 166 pounds, the average American woman is too heavy to use these pills effectively [emphasis added].
Add this to the ever-growing body of evidence that the increasing propagation of so-called “emergency contraception” (EC) has been an utterly failed strategy. (Indeed, this news comes just a few weeks after an article was published in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management which found that increased access to EC has had no significant effect on unintended pregnancy or abortion rates—but that it may have led to a decrease in reports of rape.)

The U.S. Supreme Court announced today that they will hear two critical cases in the fight against the HHS Mandate.
The two cases represent two sides of the issue. Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. v. Sebelius, filed by Mennonite cabinet makers, is a case brought by a private business against the government, while Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., regarding the well known craft store chain, is a case brought by the government against a private business.
It is our hope that by taking both of these cases, it is a sign of the Supreme Court’s intention to take a thorough review of the Mandate and its implications.
Whenever we go out on the streets for a “Face the Truth” Tour, we can always count on someone happening by our display to tell us that by showing the pictures of abortion victims in the public square, we’re doing more harm than good. This is a charge we’ve heard often enough that we address it as one of the most Common Objections we hear.
In our response to this oft-raised argument, we plainly make the observation that throughout modern history, any number of successful social reform movements — from the movement to enact child labor laws to the civil rights movement — have used disturbing images that depict victims of maltreatment and violence, and that public support for the reforms these movements sought could not have been garnered without publicly showing these images.
The intent behind displaying graphic abortion pictures is the same, of course, for it puts a human face on the victims of what is, for far too many people, merely a theoretical concept or political issue. [Continue reading ...]
In response to a series of new abortion restrictions enacted in Texas, abortionist Sarah McNeil wrote recently in USA Today:
I and my physician colleagues across the country continually seek out and welcome measures that improve patient safety, but absurd laws such as this one only hurt women and families by decreasing access to essential reproductive health care services.
It’s no surprise, of course, that the abortion industry and its allies are wailing and gnashing their teeth and bandying about phrases like “absurd laws” in reference to Texas’ new abortion restrictions.
But what’s really absurd is the implication behind their bellyaching: namely, the idea that abortion clinics can be trusted to police themselves. [Continue reading ...]
The Pro-Life Action League is very happy to announce the release of the 5th edition of our essential pro-life handbook, Sharing the Pro-Life Message.
Since the handbook was released nearly five years ago, we’ve been thrilled at how well it’s been received by all segments of the pro-life movement.
We debuted Sharing the Pro-Life Message at the 2009 March for Life, and it’s been in great demand ever since. Our first print run of 10,000 copies went like hotcakes, and was exhausted in just over a month! Over the next two years we did another three more print runs, which brought us up to 80,000 copies in print.
And now, with the publication of the 5th edition, there are now 100,000 copies of Sharing the Pro-Life Message in print.
Earlier this year, as handbook orders kept coming in and showed no signs of stopping, Pro-Life Action League Executive Director Eric Scheidler assembled a team of staffers — along with summer intern Grant Wilson, who provided indispensable help — and began the painstaking process of revising the handbook to make sure it contained the most current information.
