Abortion clinics slapped with huge fines
Similar cases in Michigan resulted in little more than some tut-tutting and slaps on the wrist, but Texas stepped up! The Texas Commission on Environment Quality has fined two Texas abortion businesses with fines in excess of $83,000 for illegal dumping of the remains of aborted babies.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held the hearing on the Obama Administration’s decision not to renew Bush Administration funding for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) program that provided medical and mental health services to more than 2,700 survivors of human sex trafficking. The 5-year funding is running out soon and the pro-abortion Obama administration recently notified the USCCB it would not be renewed, because of the Catholic program’s ban on abortion funding and/or referral.
Newt Gingrich issued an official statement about his position on abortion
“As I have stated many times throughout the course of my public life, I believe that human life begins at conception. I believe that every unborn life is precious, no matter how conceived. I also believe that we should work for the day when there will be no abortions for any reason, and that every unborn child will be welcomed into life and protected by law.…That is why I have supported, and will continue to support, pro-life legislation that not only limits, but also reduces, the total number of abortions, with a view to the eventual legal protection of all unborn human life.”
He also said that, if he becomes the GOP nominee and defeats pro-abortion President Barack Obama, he will implement a pro-life agenda immediately after being sworn in as president.
