Live Action: New Video Asks “What is Life?” (Powerful Video)

unborn babyHow would abortion rates change if Roe v. Wade was overturned? The perception seems to be that it would create a black market and numbers would surge. Realistically, that’s absurd. What Planned Parenthood knows and is desperately trying to market is access, because they know if there is an abortion clinic on every corner that women will use them. This fact is underscored by a recent study that concludes proximity to an abortion clinic makes a difference of whether or not a woman chooses to have an abortion.

After analyzing the data the researchers soon concluded that “if Roe were overturned and 31 states voted to make made abortion illegal, the national abortion rate would fall by 14.9 percent and the number of live births in the United States would increase by 4.2 percent.”

Perhaps this is why nearly every poll reveals that Americans are overwhelmingly pro-life. Yes, some who would say they are pro-life still want abortion access for cases of rape and incest; but the myth that most Americans want abortion on demand is crumbling around Planned Parenthood.

It’s a powerful blow against the abortion industry when a doctor that formerly did abortions is now a pro-life advocate willing to speak against this torturous procedure. Dr. Anthony Levatino is one such doctor that recently shared testimony with the members of Congress. In his statements he described in graphic detail exactly what takes place during a routine abortion. Some of his remarks are below, but use caution because they are graphic. [Read more...]

Leroy Carhart Jokes About Killing Kids in the Womb

Live Action films has released another undercover video showing just how inhuman and cruel abortionists can be. In this film, late-term abortionist Leroy Carhard jokes with two pregnant women about how he tears unborn babies apart in the womb in order to make sure they are dead. A recent article explains: “Live Action today released the fourth video in its Inhuman investigation. This time, two different undercover investigators – both pregnant, one at 22 weeks and one at 24 – went into LeRoy Carhart’s late-term abortion facility in Bellevue, Nebraska. Carhart is recorded joking and laughing about the process of tearing a human child apart in the womb, as well as relaying misleading information on his involvement in the death of Jennifer Morbelli this past February.”

Chilling Quotes from Abortion Doctors

forcepsA recent article from Live Action entitled: “10 Very Surprising Quotes From Abortion Doctors,” writer Lauren Enriquez shares the words of both former and current abortion doctors. They are reprinted below and will surely cause a reaction of some sort by anyone with a conscience. As the Day 2 Pray and Sanctity of Human Life Sunday approach we need to be in prayer for the end of this terrible national tragedy.

The words of these people are heartbreaking, because they know they are killing. They know the unborn children feel pain. They know the pregnant women are harmed in many ways. Yet they continue killing. Every person should read these words. They should be posted in every abortion clinic, every care pregnancy center, every maternity ward in the country. They are chilling, they are real, and they are painful.

They [the women] are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heart beat, they wouldn’t want to have an abortion. –Dr. Randall, former abortionist

The Top 10 Reasons Why Roe v. Wade is a Bad Decision by the Supreme Court

Roe v WadeThe Live Action Blog published an article last week worth reading. It is a recount of Steven Aden’s “Top 10 Reasons Against Roe v. Wade” presentation. No need for me to further comment, read his reasons below.

Top 10 reasons against Roe v. Wade

10. Roe was a decision that came out of the Sexual Revolution of the 1960s. The Court decided with Griswold v. Connecticut that there is “right of privacy” in the 14th Amendment and the “penumbra” of the Bill of Rights based on a “feeling.”

9. Roe was based on lies. Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” in this case, was persuaded by activist lawyers that as a young single mother, she should file an affidavit saying she had a right to abortion. She said that she had been raped, which was not true, and that she did not want to keep the baby. However, this affidavit was never actually signed.

8. Roe was not a strictly constitutional decision. The text of the Constitution from the framers was not the context for this decision; rather, a socio-political manifesto was. John Hart Ely is a scholarly example of someone who, even though he was in favor of abortion, did not like how the Court came up with the decision. The decision actually relied on history, medicine, and the philosophy/theology/sociology of abortion, but not the Constitution. By deciding what the law should be, this was a badly decided law, said Ely. It was a constitutional upheaval. Thus, the legacy of Roe and abortion in the Constitution is distorted.

Obama Misleads Again on Mammograms

By now everyone knows that Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms. Even Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards finally admitted that her organization does not do mammograms and simply finds places that does them for women. And earlier this year Live Action Films did released a video of a caller asking numerous different Planned Parenthood clinics if they performed the service only to be told they did not…every single time. So it’s a well-established fact that Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms. So why is President Obama telling people that Planned Parenthood does mammograms? In an interview with Glamour, Obama said he would not defund Planned Parenthood, then elaborated: “Precisely because in many of these states Planned Parenthood is your only possible access to not only abortion but Pap smears, cervical cancer screenings, mammograms. It is a place where women who may not otherwise have the means can take care of their own bodies.” Why does he continue to mislead people with false information? Click here for original article.

Are You Willing to Stand with James Dobson?

by Nathan A. Cherry, 06/11/2012

James DobsonJust how far are you willing to go to stand for life and oppose abortion? Are you willing to violate the law in order to adhere to your conviction that abortion is murder? Is it possible that we are moving toward a movement of civil disobedience not seen since the 60’s?

At least one national leader is letting the President know exactly how he feels, and even telling Obama to “come and get me.”

Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, and an outspoken pro-life advocate for many years is drawing a line in the sand and putting the president on notice that he refuses to give one penny to the abortion industry. According to a recent article at WND.com, Dobson did not mince words:

“I want to be very careful regarding what I am about to write now. It will not be said flippantly or with malice, but it will reflect the passion of my heart…I believe in the rule of law, and it has been my practice since I was in college to respect and honor those in authority over us. It is my desire to do so now. However, this assault on the sanctity of human life takes me where I cannot go. I WILL NOT pay the surcharge for abortion services. The amount of the surcharge is irrelevant. To pay one cent for the killing of babies is egregious to me, and I will do all I can to correct a government that lies to me about its intentions and then tries to coerce my acquiescence with extortion. It would be a violation of my most deeply held convictions to disobey what I consider to be the principles in Scripture. The Creator will not hold us guiltless if we turn a deaf ear to the cries of His innocent babies. So come and get me if you must, Mr. President. I will not bow before your wicked regulation.”

The Real War on Women is Happening Here

by Nathan A. Cherry, 06/06/2012

gendercideBeginning on Monday we started a series on sex-selective abortion taking place right here in America. The release of a recent Live Action undercover video of a Planned Parenthood worker working out the details of an abortion with a young lady due to the fact that her unborn child was a girl and not a boy, ignited a firestorm across the political and media landscape that continues today.

Most of us only think of sex-selective abortion in countries like China where the communist dictators brutally enforce their one child policy on families. But the fact of the matter is that sex-selective abortion is happening right here in the United States where groups like Planned Parenthood with no moral fiber has no trouble targeting girls for abortion.

Columnist an author Erik Rush has written an excellent piece on the topic with a conclusion that liberal policies must end up legitimizing abortion, euthanasia, and even eugenics as a whole. He wrote:

The New Word of the Week is…..GENDERCIDE.

By Tom Stark, 06/05/2012

sex selective abortionAs you read yesterday in Nathan Cherry’s great article on Planned Parenthood’s stepping in it deep with another sting that stung them badly, the buzz-word of the week should be gendercide – defined as  the selective aborting or killing of females by choice in order to bear a male child instead.

Gendercide just sounds so contrived that one would tend to pass it off as another culture quirk until you lift the lid and look inside the Pandora’s Box in which it lives.  Gendercide thrives underChina’s “one child” rule.  Gendercide in a number of other societies is the rule rather than the exception simply out of economic and cultural fears.  In India and China it it probably worst because it has deep roots.  Families worry about their elderly not being adequately cared for.  Women generally are not valued in the working world of these cultures because of their lesser strength to do physical work as well as their being considered less capable of dealing in “a man’s world.”  People in these cultures believe that having male children ensures adequate financial resources to see them through their later years without problems.

We can shake our heads, tsk-tsk the situation all we want, and think this kind of thing can never happen here inAmericabecause we value the equality of everyone.  Well, the Planned Parenthood video sting tells a different story.

Even in America, gender-selective abortions are being used to control the mix of children being raised in American families…perhaps right next door to you.  Even in America, the sex ratio at birth (SRB) is skewed beyond the 104:100 male-female ration that is considered neutral (the natural average without artificial interference by man).  It becomes more and more pronounced in second and third children indicating that families become more and more concerned with the sex of their child as they continue to have repeated female children.  The ethnic diversity ofAmerica is adding to this practice as ethnic groups that culturally support the pro-male child attitude grow.  They become statistically significant and skew the numbers even further.

On May 30, Erika Andersen, writing for The Foundry at Heritage.org put it this way:

SHOCK! Planned Parenthood Complicit in Sex Selective Abortion (Video)

by Nathan A. Cherry, 06/04/2012

Lila Rose

Live Action President Lila Rose

By now only the most naïve of persons would not know just how corrupt and insidious an organization Planned Parenthood is. Perhaps I will make some enemies for making such a claim, but that is hardly a concern considering the growing record of abuse, corruption, criminal activity, bully tactics, and certainly not least the abortions.

If you are still under the misguided impression that Planned Parenthood (PP) is a respectable organization take a minute to watch this video of PP helping to cover up sex-trafficking, or you can read this article by Live Action president Lila Rose as she uncovers the lies PP has been feeding the public, or you can read about PP lying to America about the fact that they don’t even do mammograms, though they receive funding for the procedure.

Now that you are caught up with the despicable nature of PP and their criminal efforts to continue lying to America while receiving millions in tax-payer funding, let’s talk about the latest disgusting scandal.

Generally when we think of “sex selective abortion” we think of China and their one child policy. Because of this policy in the communist country there is a premium on male children to carry on the family legacy. So it’s fairly routine for women to abort a baby girl in hopes of having a boy. To most people the idea of placing value on one sex over the other is morally repugnant as we believe both male and females are equally valuable and worthy of life.

Live Action Films, the organization that has previously and repeatedly exposed the criminal and morally reprehensible actions of PP over the last several years has released a new video. The new video shows a PP worker complicit in the sex-selective abortion of a little girl. LifeNews.com shares the story:

“The video shows a Planned Parenthood staffer encouraging the woman to obtain a late-term abortion because she was purportedly carrying a girl and wanted to have a boy. The video is the first in a new series titled ‘Gendercide: Sex-Selection in America,’ that Live Action tells LifeNews will be exposing the practice of sex-selective abortion in the United States and how Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry facilitate the selective elimination of baby girls in the womb.”
