Two Abortionists Charged with Murder in Maryland
Two abortionists with checkered pasts are set to break new legal ground in the first-ever case of abortionists being charged with murder for aborting pre-born babies.
Steven Chase Brigham of New Jersey and Nicola Irene Riley of Utah have been charged with murder in the deaths of viable babies in a bi-state late-term “traveling” abortion ring which attempted to bypass state laws by starting abortions in one state and completing them in another. The extradition hearing is set for Tuesday, Jan. 3. Read full details here.
At the other end of the life spectrum, seniors’ access to medical treatment under ObamaCare is definitely going to be rationed, according to a neurosurgeon who recently attended a D.C. seminar for his medical specialty, one of medicine’s most complex and expensive. Listen to this four-minute audio clip of a concerned neurosurgeon who called in to radio show host Mark Levin late November for a glimpse of the future under ObamaCare.

Abortuaries in Virginia now will be treated like outpatient clinics and must meet the same medical standards as surgery centers built after 2010 under new regulations recently signed by GOP Gov. Bob McConnell. The regulations, approved in September by the state Board of Health, will require existing facilities that provide five or more first-trimester abortions per month must meet, among other things, specific architectural standards and staffing levels and carry certain medical supplies. Pro-aborts are, of course, whining that these common-sense measures will force many abortion centers to shut down since they don’t meet the standards. Read more here.
A brave Idaho teenage mother unselfishly chose life for her baby over life-saving cancer treatments for herself. As reported by Fox News, Jenni Lake had an aggressive form of cancer which resulted in three tumors on her spine and three more in her brain. But the teen chose to forgo radiation and chemotherapy in order to insure that her baby would be born. For the complete story, click here.
At last, it’s 2012 — the year we begin to take back our country! The Iowa caucuses are tonight, with the New Hampshire primary right on their heels. It will be interesting to see how the GOP candidates sort out, as actual votes and not just polls are taken. As the field narrows, we will continue to keep you posted on how each of the contenders stands on the Life issues. One measure, the pro-life pledge promulgated by the Susan B. Anthony List, commits the signers to appointing only pro-life federal judges and relevant cabinet positions, as well as advancing and signing legislation such as a Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and measures to de-fund Planned Parenthood. The pledge has been signed by all the top GOP candidates, except for Govs. Romney, Huntsman and Johnson who have refused to sign it. (Gov. Romney wrote his own “anti-abortion pledge,” noting his belief that abortion should be used only in “instances of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.” Gov. Johnson dropped out of the GOP race on Dec. 28 to run as a Libertarian.)
