Obama Judge Tells Trump Administration to Abort Illegal Mother’s Baby

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ — An Obama-nominated federal judge ordered the U.S. government to pay for an undocumented illegal immigrant teenager’s abortion at taxpayer expense in Texas. U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan ordered the government to transport the teenager to have the abortion — or allow her guardian to transport her — “promptly and without delay.”

The Justice Department has appealed the case, asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to suspend Judge Chutkan’s ruling regarding the 17-year-old, who crossed the border from Mexico.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has now implemented a new policy under President Trump which discourages abortions among undocumented minors residing in federally-funded shelters. The policy prevents pregnant, unaccompanied minors in shelters from seeking abortions and instead directs them to crisis pregnancy centers where they are encouraged to forgo the abortion. The new Trump administration policy is a stark contrast to the pro-abortion Obama administration, which mandated that unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children be given access to abortions at taxpayer-funded shelters.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which filed a restraining order on the girl’s behalf, claims the new federal government policy is blocking the girl from getting an abortion. U.S. Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler previously refused to grant the ACLU’s request, stating the restraining order should be filed in a different court.

“U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan’s ruling that the U.S. government facilitate and fund an abortion for an illegal immigrant is outrageous,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “This outrageous opinion sets a dangerous precedent to make the United States a sanctuary for the killing of unborn children at taxpayer expense. The Trump administration has implemented a new policy which protects the life and dignity of a young mother and her child. This is in stark contrast to Obama, who encouraged abortions for immigrants at taxpayer-funded shelters. There is no constitutional right for a pregnant minor to illegally cross the U.S. border and get an elective abortion while in federal custody at the expense of taxpayers. Shame on this judge for thinking she has the power to force taxpayers to fund the brutal killing of unborn children,” said Staver.

Christian Persecution Spikes

NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ — Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a new report on Christian persecution:

All across the nation, students are learning about genocide committed in the twentieth century, yet most know next to nothing about genocide taking place right now. That’s partly because the victims are Christians: many academics and journalists have become accustomed to seeing Christians as victimizers, not victims, thus leaving them unmoved when reports surface about genocide against the faithful.

Persecuted and Forgotten? A Report on Christians Oppressed for their Faith, 2015-17,” is a study released by Aid to the Church in Need, an organization chaired by George J. Marlin. Its findings are devastating.

“In 12 of the 13 countries reviewed,” the report notes, “the situation for Christians was worse in overall terms in the period 2015-17 than within the preceding two years.” Genocide has been recorded in Syria, Iraq, and northern Nigeria, either by ISIS or affiliates such as Boko Haram.

North Korea is singled out for persecuting Christians. Its atrocities include starvation, abortion, and hanging Christians on crosses over a fire; others were run over by steamrollers.

As usual, Muslim madmen go about killing converts in public, and they do so with impunity. This is in line with the stated goal of Islamists, namely, the “eradication of Christians, and other minorities.” In Sudan, the killing is orchestrated by the government.

One of the report’s most salient findings, which deserves greater attention, is something that Catholics, and indeed all Christians, need to confront. “The defeat of Daesh [ISIS] and other Islamists in major strongholds of the Middle East offers the last hope of recovery for Christian groups threatened with extinction.”

Notice that the report did not say that more dialogue is needed: it said ISIS must be crushed. That is a glum, yet realistic, conclusion; it is certainly supported by the evidence.

Now that ISIS is on the run throughout the Middle East, the time to finish the job is more important than ever before. As the report says, “Many [Christians] would not survive another similar violent attack.”

This report deserves a wide audience.

Carhart’s New Late-Term Abortion Facility in Bethesda is Illegally Unlicensed

BETHESDA, Md., Oct. 13, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ — Operation Rescue has received confirmation from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene that the new late-term abortion facility located at 10401 Old Georgetown Road, Suite 104 in Bethesda, Maryland, is not licensed as an abortion facility as required by state law.

The facility, currently operating under the name AbortionClinics.org, Inc., is run by Nebraska late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart.

That means any abortions he plans to do beginning on October 17, 2017, would be illegal.

Since Operation Rescue released the address of Carhart’s secret new abortion facility yesterday, the AbortionClinics.org web site has been changed to show a location in Bethesda, Maryland, along with an announcement that it would be “Offering advanced gestation abortion care in Maryland Starting Tuesday, October 17th.”

“There is no way Carhart could get the Bethesda location licensed by next Tuesday. It looks like he thought he could sneak some abortions in under the radar without having to comply with licensing laws,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “This is just another example of how much disregard Carhart has for the law and for the safety of his patients.”

Operation Rescue researchers uncovered the location of Carhart’s unlicensed abortion business through a successful undercover investigation.

Today, two complaints were filed by Operation Rescue with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and with the Maryland Board of Physicians.

“We trust that any effort to open that Bethesda facility without a valid license will be met with swift action on the part of Maryland authorities, who are already aware of the situation,” said Newman.

Meanwhile, local and national pro-life leaders plan to hold a press conference outside the illegal Bethesda abortion office on October 17, 2017, to announce further plans to oppose the dangerous new facility. Details to follow.
