Chile’s Constitutional Court Approves Bill Legalizing Abortion



A bill legalizing abortion in cases of rape, fetal disability, and life of the mother was upheld yesterday by Chile’s constitutional court, effectively securing the legalization of abortion in the South American country. It is widely expected that Chilean Socialist President Michelle Bachelet will sign the bill into law. In a last-ditch effort to block the bill, eleven senators from the opposition Chile Vamos party had challenged the abortion bill on August 2nd, petitioning the constitutional court …

Abortion is Never the Answer for Pregnant Women with Zika



  Abortion advocates have attempted to lobby and shame pro-life Latin American countries into legalizing abortion for women who may contract the Zika virus. Although it has not been proven that Zika causes microcephaly and other congenital disabilities, pro-abortion groups have nonetheless assumed that it does. Apparently abortion activists think they know more about ZIKV than the medical community. Pro-abortion groups like the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and abortion device manufacturer Ipas have used …

Planned Parenthood Uses Manual Vacuum Aspirators to Harvest Organs



A second video alleging Planned Parenthood’s gruesome selling of fetal body parts surfaced last week. And once again we find a senior executive of the organization, Dr. Mary Gatter, willing to put women’s lives at risk in order to make more money for the organization and for themselves. As Gatter explains, “I wouldn’t object to asking Ian, who’s our surgeon who does the cases, to use an Ipas [manual vacuum aspirator] at that gestational age …

Women Deliver: Gates Global Push for Abortion Continues



The Malaysia conference highlights how to market a drug for one thing and use it for another, how euphemisms work and how it is up to government to create demand for contraception. It's being billed as "the largest global event of the decade to focus on the health and empowerment of girls and women." But it is also very obviously a conference designed to reduce populations of developing nations by promoting a Western-style sexual revolution …

Ipas or IPPF?



The Manual Vacuum Aspirator (MVA) is small, lightweight and concealable—perfect for performing illegal abortions in Latin America. Ipas began life in 1973 as a one-trick pony. It was spun off of the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina, Capel Hill, to manufacture, distribute and promote a single deadly device, a manually operated suction abortion device called a Manual Vacuum Aspirator, or MVA for short. But it has battened on foundation grants over …

Fear GEAR: A United Nations Effort to Enforce Gender Equality



GEAR is short for the Gender Architecture Reform Campaign, whose goal is to establish a new radical feminist superagency with a billion-dollar budget. Vol. 12/No. 8 Going up to New York for the Beijing + 15 meeting at the U.N., I expected to be on the hunt for the hidden agenda behind dull, bureaucratic rhetoric. But attending the 54th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), I found that this year’s radical …

Illegal Abortion Hot-Lines: A New Attack on the Unborn



The International Planned Parenthood Federation and its allies have come up with a clever new tactic in its war on the unborn.  They have decided to simply ignore existing laws protecting the sanctity of life and set up abortion hot-lines to encourage women to abort themselves. Women who call these hot-lines are told about the abortifacient drug, misoprostol.  They are briefed on how they can obtain it, and how they can use it abort themselves. …
