WASHINGTON - The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the nation's largest pro-life group, today responded to the shooting death of James Pouillon in Owosso, Michigan. Mr. Pouillon was reportedly shot while standing outside Owosso High School holding a sign with a picture of a baby and the word "LIFE." Police believe a second homicide nearby may be linked and a suspect is in custody. The following statement may be attributed to NRLC Executive Director David N. O'Steen, Ph.D.:

We are saddened to learn of this tragic taking of innocent human life. National Right to Life extends its sympathies to Mr. Pouillon's family over his death. While the motive behind the shooting is unknown, we know that Mr. Pouillon was known for his stand against abortion.

The National Right to Life Committee unequivocally condemns acts of violence. The pro-life movement works to protect the right to life and increase respect for human life. Any unlawful use of violence is directly contrary to that goal.

Real Health Care Respects Life

Normal Breast Physiology: The Reasons Hormonal Contraceptives and Induced Abortion Increase Breast Cancer Risk

By Angela Lanfranchi, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Dr. Lanfranchi is Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

A woman gains protection from breast cancer by completing a full-term pregnancy. In utero, her offspring produce hormones that mature 85 percent of the mother’s breast tissue into cancer-resistant breast tissue. If the pregnancy ends through an induced abortion or a premature birth before thirty-two weeks, the mother’s breasts will have only partially matured, retaining even more cancer-susceptible breast tissue than when the pregnancy began. This increased amount of immature breast tissue will leave the mother with more sites for cancer initiation, thereby increasing her risk of breast cancer. Hormonal contraceptives increase breast-cancer risk by their proliferative effect on breast tissue and their direct carcinogenic effects on DNA. Hormonal contraceptives include estrogen-progestin combination drugs prescribed in any manner of delivery: orally, transdermally, vaginally, or intrauterine. This article provides the detailed physiology and data that elucidate the mechanisms through which induced abortion and hormonal contraceptives increase breast-cancer risk. Read more.

The shedding of innocent blood is a sin in the eyes of Almighty God, and how much more innocent and vulnerable is an unborn child in the womb of its mother. Jeremiah1:5 says, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; And I ordained you a prophet to the nations."

Please help protect the unborn by having anyone interested in attending or helping with the banquet email The slaughter of innocent babies must not be allowed in a civilized nation!

Abortion: the Deadly Side of Vaccines

Another downside to abortion is the use of fetal cells in making vaccines. The National Vaccine Advisory Committee has recommended further study of vaccine safety.

Although mercury in vaccines has been ruled out as a causative factor in childhood autism, the autism rate is still rising (on out of every 64 children). The autism rate began to rise in 1979 and spiked upward in 1983. After 1983, the new vaccine, MMR II, was produced using aborted fetal cells. Mercury was not present in these vaccines.

Today, more than 23 vaccines are contaminated by the use of aborted fetal cells and residual aborted fetal DNA. There is no law that requires the vaccine manufaturer to disclose the contents of the vaccine. Until recent concerns about vaccine safety, nearly 94% of American children were vaccinated.

The contaminating aborted fetal DNA creates the potential for autoimmune responses. A group of researchers, Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute, has studied the effects of fetal DNA in vaccines. Preliminary studies have shown a link between DNA recombination and the autism-associated genes present on the X chromosome. The study produced more questions than answers, but it is clear that more study and openness is needed in the development of childhood vaccines.

Obama Perpetuates Abortion Funding Myth in Joint Session Address

by Derrick Jones, National Right to Life Committee Media Relations
September 9, 2009

WASHINGTON – In his address to a joint session of Congress tonight, President Obama said, "One more misunderstanding I want to clear up -- under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions."

Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee, commented: "Barack Obama needs to learn that the mere repetition of a verbal formula does not change reality. The reality is that the Obama-backed House bill would explicitly authorize the federal government insurance plan to pay for elective abortions and would explicitly authorize subsidies for private abortion insurance -- and all with federal dollars, which are the only kind of dollars that the federal government can spend."

The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) last week released definitive memoranda that demonstrate that (1) the "Hyde Amendment" would not apply to the new programs that would be created by the Obama-backed health bill, H.R. 3200, and (2) that all of the funds that would be spent on elective abortions under the bill, and all of the funds that would be spent to subsidize private insurance plans that cover abortion, would be "federal funds" in both the legal sense and in the sense in which those terms are used throughout the government.

"The claim that a federal agency would be spending private funds on abortion, not federal funds, is absurd on its face, a political hoax," Johnson said.

The Passing of a Real Hero

Robert Schindler Sr.Picture source

Today the pro-life movement mourns the loss of Mr. Robert Schindler, Sr., the father of Terri Schindler-Schiavo, whose fight for life captured the heart of the pro-life community in 2005. Mr. Schindler is being buried in Philadelphia today without the fanfare or accolades that are due a real champion who fought one of the most insidious evils of modern society - the legalized murder of the innocent. His funeral will not be televised on all the cable news networks, no cardinals will attend it, and the President of the United States will not deliver the eulogy - thank God. Mr. Schindler, however, is promised a better send-off than that. God Himself will him speak to him words spoken to all the suffering righteous: "Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Master."
