Study Finds 96% of Biologists Think Life Begins at Conception

A University of Chicago Ph.D. graduate discovered that more than 90 percent of biologists agreed that life begins at conception.

Published

University of Chicago Ph.D. graduate Steve Jacobs discovered that more than 90 percent of biologists agreed that life begins at conception, but it is a fact that has made him a target of destruction by radical leftists.

Jacobs chose a very politically incorrect topic for his dissertation, and despite the facts of the case, he was almost tossed out of school because of it.

The researcher says that his idea of finding out when most scientists think human life begins was meant to help set a scientific baseline for one of the most contentious political arguments of the day. He said he thought that if there was at last one science-approved fact about the abortion debate, it would help keep the discussion grounded in facts.

Unfortunately for Jacobs, when his survey of scientists got underway, school officials repeatedly tried to shut him down because they did not like that the facts were going against the political ideology of left-wing abortion supporters.

“The U.S. abortion debate has raged for generations, and remains divisive to this day. As a lawyer, mediator and researcher, I sought to assess whether there is room for compromise,” Jacobs said in a new piece at Quillette.com.

Jacobs identified the names and workplaces of thousands of certified biologists and he asked them a series of questions, the most important of which was “when does human life begin.”

What he found set liberals back on their rear-ends:

As the usable responses began to come in, I found that 5,337 biologists (96%) affirmed that a human’s life begins at fertilization, with 240 (4%) rejecting that view. The majority of the sample identified as liberal (89%), pro-choice (85%) and non-religious (63%). In the case of Americans who expressed party preference, the majority identified as Democrats (92%).

Since Democrats love “scientific consensus” when it come to the global warming debate, Jacobs assumed that liberals would accept his research, even though they might be a bit shocked over the results.

It turns out that instead of accepting science, liberals turned on him and began attacking him on a personal level and attempting to get him kicked out of school and his dissertation suppressed.

Jacobs told Chicago’s AM 560 that his research was shut down no less than five separate times by five separate departments of the University of Chicago as liberals erupted in anger at the outcome of his research.

His research was also distasteful to radical leftists who want abortion unrestricted because it showed that most Americans who are pro-abortion even see logic in certain restrictions on the procedure.

As Jacobs wrote, “my research indicates that Americans on both sides agree that the nation’s abortion laws should both ensure some abortion access while also providing some protections for humans in the womb. Indeed, I found that a majority of both pro-choice and pro-life Americans supported a compromise that restricted access after the first trimester of pregnancy.”

Jacobs’ results threatens the hardcore left’s ideological position that human life does not start until birth and that abortion should be considered perfectly OK at any time during a pregnancy.

Once again, we see that it is liberals who hate science.

Bernie Sanders: Free Abortions For Everyone

Published

on

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) rolled out his new radical abortion agenda: ‘Free’ abortion for everyone, banning abstinence sex ed, and defunding crisis pregnancy centers.

The plan drew applause from NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue, who called it “robust” and “a very solid plan on its merits” while saying they “would like to see the same” from former Vice President Joe Biden.

Life News:

Bernie Sanders is radically pro-abortion. He’s also a Socialist. So his new campaign plan should not be surprising: Free abortions for everyone!

Sanders, like most Democrats, may talk a good game about health care for everyone and supporting women, but Sanders has no plan to provide health care for unborn children and instead of supporting pregnant women he merely pushes abortions. But Sanders doesn’t want abortions to just be legal and available for any reason up to birth, he wants them to be free — completely paid for at taxpayer expense.

Here’s more:  To begin, Sanders’ plan promises that, under his signature “Medicare for All” plan, “the Hyde Amendment will be repealed and all reproductive health services will be provided free at the point of service.” Of course, the government cannot really make any commodity or service truly “free,” but merely change how it is paid for and who pays for it, meaning that this would leave American taxpayers to pick up the tab for all abortion services.  More

There are no reproductive rights issues. Aborting babies isn’t a reproductive right. Funny how the devil can give murder a new name and have gullible people applaud it. It’s over Bern, you got DNC’ed, again!

Fortunately, this will never happen. The majority of Americans will never allow a socialist for president.

Radical Pro-Abortion Feminists Smash Car Windows, Set Buildings On Fire, Injure 65 People (Video)

Law enforcement arrested dozens of radical pro-abortion feminists Sunday for throwing self-made bombs at authorities, buildings and smashing automobiles during the International Women’s Day protests.

Reuters reports at least 65 people ended up injured in the violence in Mexico City, which includes a female journalist who sustained 2nd-degree burns. In Santiago, Chile, 19 law enforcement officers also injured.

Life News:

Police arrested dozens of radical pro-abortion feminists Sunday for throwing homemade bombs at government buildings and smashing vehicles during International Women’s Day protests in Mexico and Chile.

Reuters reports at least 65 people were injured during the violence in Mexico City, including a female journalist who sustained second-degree burns. In Santiago, Chile, 19 police officers also were injured during the pro-abortion protest there, according to the news outlet.

International Women’s Day focuses on a variety of issues, but legalizing the killing of unborn babies in abortions was at the center of many of the protests. Most Central and South American countries protect the right to life for unborn babies.

On Sunday in Mexico City, “women in black masks and armed with hammers smashed the windshield of a car, overturned a van and burnt doors of buildings,” Reuters reports. Others ripped down pro-life banners placed around the city. According to the report, many protesters wore green bandannas to symbolize their support for abortion on demand. More

Here are two more videos. In the second one, the idiots set themselves on fire. Oops!

U.S. Appeals Court Hands Trump a Victory, Upholds New Abortion Rules

A U.S. appeals court upheld Trump’s rules barring taxpayer-funded family-planning clinics from referring women to abortion clinics.

Published

on

On Monday, a U.S. appeals court upheld President Trump’s rules barring taxpayer-funded family-planning clinics from referring women to abortion clinics.

“The 7-4 ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned decisions issued by judges in Washington, Oregon and California. The court had already allowed the administration’s changes to start taking effect while the government appealed those rulings,” the Associated Press reported.

The Trump rule prevents clinics that take Title-X funding from referring women to abortion clinics. The administration maintains that the funding amounts to taxpayer funded abortions.

The new rules also prevent Title-X funded clinics from sharing the same offices with abortion providers. Consequently, clinics in that position will be forced to relocate, or shut down.

Title-X funds are already precluded by federal law to fund abortions — as are all federal funds. But the Obama administration found a back door to the ban by allowing clinics to work hand-in-hand with abortion providers.

While federal funds were not directly used to pay off abortionists, the clinics were essentially acting as agents for the abortionists.

Per the AP:

“Congress has long prohibited the use of Title X funds in programs where abortion is a method of family planning and (the Department of Health and Human Service’s) recent rule makes that longstanding prohibition a reality,” U.S. Justice Department spokeswoman Mollie Timmons said in a written statement celebrating the 9th Circuit’s ruling. “We look forward to continuing to defend this vital rule against all challenges.”

The AP added tat the new rules follow the “spirit” of the law.

The administration’s new rules are a return to the spirit of rules that were adopted in 1988 and subsequently upheld by the Supreme Court in the 1991 case Rust v. Sullivan. Under the Clinton administration, those rules were abandoned in favor of a requirement that the clinics provide neutral abortion counseling and referrals upon request.

“In light of Supreme Court approval of the 1988 regulations and our broad deference to agencies’ interpretations of the statutes they are charged with implementing, plaintiffs’ legal challenges to the 2019 rule fail,” 9th Circuit Judge Sandra Ikuta wrote in her majority opinion.

Trump Announces Advisory Board To Expose Research Using Aborted Baby Parts

Published

on

The Trump administration announced an advisory board to expose research using aborted baby parts.

Amazing how many Christian presidents in the past did not create safeguards to keep this from occurring. Thank you, President Trump, for being a voice for the voiceless!

Life News:

The Trump administration took another step to defend unborn babies Wednesday when it announced the formation of a new ethics board to look into the use of aborted baby body parts in government-funded research.

The new National Institutes of Health (NIH) Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board is one of several ways the Trump administration has been working to end the unethical practice of using aborted baby body parts in taxpayer-funded scientific research.

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar is overseeing the creation of the board, which will be made up of 15 non-government employees, including doctors, scientists, ethicists, attorneys and theologians.

The ethics board is tasked with researching the use of aborted baby body parts in scientific research and determining whether it is ethical. The board will create a final report to recommend whether HHS should stop funding such research.

“In providing advice and recommendations on these matters, the Ethics Board will consider, among other things, the use of alternative models, and review and verify the core ethical principles and procedures used in the process to obtain written voluntary informed consent for the donation of tissue,” the HHS announcement states.

Over the past several years, the Trump administration has been listening to pro-life leaders’ pleas to stop using taxpayer funding for research using aborted baby body parts through the NIH. More

Thank God President Trump and the Advisory Board for doing this finally. We need to know who is buying them and what they are doing with the baby’s body parts.

It’s the foulest thing to be doing after a baby is aborted. Then the next thing to do is to shut down and ban the selling of the baby’s aborted body parts. Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry have no right to do this with aborted baby body parts.

Liberals Now Claim Abortion is a True Christian Value

Ever ready to simply spout a wild claim as if it were true, liberals are now claiming that abortion is a “religious right.”

Published

on

Ever ready to simply spout a wild claim as if it were true, liberals are now claiming that abortion is a “religious right.”

This time it is the extremists at the left-wing website, Vice, with an article that claims killing babies is perfectly justifiable under the Bible’s teachings and is a quintessentially Christian thing.

Vice laments that the anti-abortion movement has created the narrative for Christians. Abortion is bad; that is the narrative for religious people. But Vice insists that there are Christians who claim that abortion can be justified with Biblical teaching.

“They say the right to abortion is a constitutional one, protected not only by the right to privacy, but by the freedom to exercise religion,” Vice writes.

“There’s a lot of folks who are pro-choice or support reproductive dignity and freedom because of their faith and not in spite of it,” Rev. Katey Zeh, an ordained Baptist minister and CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, told the leftist website.

The article then goes on the delineate all the reasons that abortion is a “religious right” justified under in Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.

For instance, Rev. Zeh insists that abortion is a vital part of “love and compassion and care for the neighbor,” and “eliminating systems of oppression.”

Notice that this ignoramus is essentially claiming that having a baby is a “system of oppression.”

Then the piece claimed that the only reason abortion is perceived as a bad thing among the bulk of religious people is because evil conservatives lit on the idea of using abortion as a political wedge issue.

“[A] political — not theological — effort was made by Republicans, specifically Richard Nixon, to recruit Catholic Democratic voters by polarizing the issue of abortion,” Vice said. “Evangelicals and Protestants later followed as a result of targeted political campaigns hoping to unite Christians under conservative cultural issues.”

In other words, abortion has no religious basis, it is all just political.

The religious right, Zeh told Vice, “doesn’t speak for everybody. But it’s almost served as an erasure of the prophetic work that people were doing, you know, before the 1980s. We’re trying to disrupt the idea that religion equals anti-choice.”

Just like the left went from calling global warming “climate change” because the left needed a different way to sell their lies, now the left is trying to redefine the morality of abortion.

Abortion Wild Britain Doubles Deaths of Down’s Syndrome Babies

The abortion-loving UK has kicked into high gear, doubling the number of late term abortions of babies with Down’s Syndrome.

Published

on

The abortion-loving United Kingdom has kicked into high gear, doubling the number of late term abortions of babies with Down’s Syndrome in just ten years.

The UK has clearly turned into an abattoir for people with Down’s Syndrome. In fact, it has been for a long time. The UK passed a law that allows parents to kill their babies right up until birth if the child has a disability.

So, the British government has determined that people with disabilities don’t deserve to live.

According to the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children:

The number of late term abortions carried out past 24 week’s gestation on UK children with Down’s syndrome have doubled in the past 10 years, recent figures have revealed. Michael Robinson, SPUC Director of Communications said: “It is barbaric that a child who may have a disability in the UK can be aborted right up to birth. This practice has no place in a civilised society.”

The recent figures, obtained in response to a parliamentary question by Lord Alton, have revealed that in 2018, the number of UK children aborted past 24 weeks gestation following a possible Down’s syndrome diagnosis increased from 11 in 2009 to 23 in 2018.

In addition, the figures also expose that the number of abortions carried out in the UK following a Down’s syndrome diagnosis have risen by almost 30% over the past decade.

Is this “liberalism”?

Is this how caring liberals are?

Apparently so.

Still, British families that have children with Down’s Syndrome are not sitting idly by.

“Over 1,800 people with Down’s syndrome and their families have signed a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, urging him to insure that abortion for disability will not be permitted in Northern Ireland,” the group reported.

This is what liberals want here, folks.

Make no mistake.

Senate Will Vote On Pro-Life Bills To Stop Infanticide And Ban Late-Term Abortions

Why didn’t the Senate do this two years ago when the Republicans had the House?

Published

on

Senate to vote on banning late-term abortion, infanticide.

Family Research Council staffer Patricia Mosley told senators: “There have been no cases involving prosecutions under the [2002] Born-Alive Infants Protection Act that we know of. Why? Because there is currently no federal criminal statute specifically prohibiting taking the lives of born-alive infants.”

LifeNews:

The Senate will soon vote on two major pro-life bills, to ban late-term abortions on babies capable of feeling excruciating pain during abortions and on the Born Alive bill that would stop infanticide and protect babies who survive abortions.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell today filed a procedural motion that would set up a vote for after the Senate takes its President’s Day recess. Once the Senate comes back into session next week, votes could take place on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Act and Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. President Trump has already promised to sign both pro-life bills into law should Congress approve them.

Both pieces of legislation would require a 60-vote threshold since pro-abortion Democrats are likely to filibuster both of them. And the votes on ending the filibuster would give Americans another indication of just how radical two of the leading Democrats running for president are on abortion — Senators Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar. Neither would be expected to vote to end the filibuster and allow votes on either common-sense bill.

The Senate recently held a hearing on the Born Alive bill.

In a hearing called, “The Infant Patient: Ensuring Appropriate Medical Care for Children Born Alive,” Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska made it clear why the bill is needed:

“This hearing is not about overturning Roe v. Wade. In fact, this hearing is not actually about limiting access to abortion at all. This hearing isn’t a debate about third-trimester, or second-trimester, or first-trimester abortion. This hearing is about making sure that every newborn baby has a fighting chance — whether she’s born in a labor and delivery ward or whether she’s born in an abortion clinic.” For once, he urged, can we not “immediately retreat into the fortified and familiar trenches our two parties have occupied for most of the past 47 years?” More

Should babies who survive failed abortions be given the same care as other newborns, or should they be left to die? Should there be any limit on abortions of babies who feel pain? The bills address these questions.
