In yet another pro-life victory against the HHS mandate that forces churches and religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions for their employees, a federal judge has ruled that the Catholic Church in Pittsburgh doesn’t have to comply. Bishop David Zubik of Pittsburgh made such a stink when he […]…
The U.S. Senate today failed to stop a Republican filibuster against pro-abortion Cornelia Pillard, a law professor President Barack Obama selected for an appointment to the most important appeals court in the nation.
Obama’[s pick for the D.C. Circuit Court, who is one of the most pro-abortion ever nominated, saw senators vote 56-41 to invoke cloture on her nomination and proceed to a vote. Short of the 60 votes needed, Democrats were unable to stop the Republican filibuster against the abortion advocate.
A Texas judge today issued an opinion striking down two parts of a Texas pro-life law that protects women from dangerous abortions.
The judge blocked part of the law that required its doctors to have the right to admit patients to local hospitals. Texas became one of several states that require abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at local hospitals so women can be treated when they are victimized by botched abortions.
A federal judge in Nebraska has ordered the state to stop enforcing a law that prevents legal, non-citizens from getting a permit to carry a concealed handgun.
The Red River Clinic, the sole public abortion business in North Dakota, reportedly performs an average of 1,200 abortions a year. Yet its fly-in abortionists have no admitting privileges with local hospitals, should a woman suffer complications from her abortion.
The North Dakota legislature approved a bill which would require all abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. Because the abortion business can’t find a hospital to enter into an agreement with it, the abortion facility would have to close.
With the agreement of both parties, last week U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson extended the Temporary Restraining Order he issued in June blocking a section of Alabama’s pro-life HB 57. The TRO, scheduled to expire in August, was extended to March 2014.
The provision at issue is that the commonsense requirement that abortionists have admitting privileges in a local hospital, in case there are complications. The plaintiffs are three of the state’s five abortion clinics. (The other two abortion clinics–in Huntsville and Tuscaloosa—use abortionists with admitting privileges to local hospitals.)
Today, Shawnee County Judge Franklin Theis heard arguments for and against retaining the July 2012 revocation of the medical license of former abortionist Ann Kristen (Kris) Neuhaus. The judge said his ruling will not be ready for sometime.
The complaint from the state Board of Healing Arts is that Neuhaus failed to follow the standard of care in recommending that eleven teens in 2003 were eligible to abort viable babies because continuing the pregnancy caused them to suffer substantial and irreversible mental harm.
Shep Smith and Judge Napolitano Explode Over Massive Scale of NSA Surveillance: ‘Under This Logic, They Can Do Anything!’
In the last 24 hours, it has been revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) has been indiscriminately monitoring all Verizon phone records for the past seven years.
The stunning revelation sent Fox News host Shep Smith and Judge Andrew Napolitano into a frenzy on Thursday. In fact, Napolitano said it represented the “most extraordinarily broad search warrant ever issued in the history of the federal courts of the United States.”
