Supreme Court rules in King v. Burwell: Subsidies include abortion insurance

 Today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the case of King v. Burwell, which dealt with federal subsidies for health insurance purchased on federal health exchanges. This is the second major case upholding parts of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Here are several major points about how the decision will affect prolife people:

  • The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling means federal subsidies will continue for plans purchased on health care exchanges, including plans that pay for abortions.
  • Because of the grassroots efforts of prolifers across Michigan to collect more than 316,000 signatures to initiate the Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act, the law was passed in 2013. Because of this law, subsidized plans purchased in Michigan do not include abortion coverage.
  • The federal Hyde Amendment prevents tax funding of most abortions, but because the Hyde Amendment does not apply to these subsidies, our federal tax dollars will continue to subsidize abortion coverage in states without an opt-out law.
  • The federal government should either apply the Hyde Amendment to health subsidies, or pass the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act to stop forcing people who object to abortion to fund abortions for others.

Belgium's leap off the moral cliff

The New Yorker has an article on Belgium's leap off the moral cliff, their acceptance of euthanasia, physicians willing to euthanize anyone who asks and a man who wasn't informed of his mother's euthanasia until after she was killed.

In the past five years, the number of euthanasia and assisted-suicide deaths in the Netherlands has doubled, and in Belgium it has increased by more than a hundred and fifty per cent. Although most of the Belgian patients had cancer, people have also been euthanized because they had autism, anorexia, borderline personality disorder, chronic-fatigue syndrome, partial paralysis, blindness coupled with deafness, and manic depression......
He recently approved the euthanasia of a twenty-five-year-old woman with borderline personality disorder who did not "suffer from depression in the psychiatric sense of the word," he said. "It was more existential; it was impossible for her to have a goal in this life." He said that her parents "came to my office, got on their knees, and begged me, ‘Please, help our daughter to die.'"

Clinic Laws and Enforcement Matter!


For years, abortion clinics in Michigan weren’t regulated and weren’t regularly inspected.  The Abortion Abuses and State Regulator Agency Failure Report released by Right to Life of Michigan in 2011 showed that most of Michigan's abortion clinics were not in compliance with dozens of state laws or regulations. The report also cited a vital need for oversight and enforcement on the part of Michigan agencies charged with holding health providers and facilities to account.

Below are some examples of what has been happening in the past few months in Michigan as a result of enforcement of prolife laws that Right to Life of Michigan spearheaded in the Michigan Legislature.

  • Martin Ruddock is an Ohio-based abortionist who has been traveling up and down the I-75 corridor over the past two years performing abortions for various Michigan abortion clinics. His foray into Michigan is the result of clinics he was associated with in Ohio closing based on the Buckeye State's prolife laws. Ruddock was found not to have proper Michigan prescribing licenses at one clinic and was discovered to have unethically pre-signed a prescription pad for routine drugs that the clinic staff could utilize in his absence. The prescription pad was seized by state inspectors, he was forced to pay fees for the proper licenses, and he was fined $1,000.00 for not having the proper licenses. (February 2015)

  • Franklyn Seabrooks, the long-time abortionist at the Scotsdale abortion clinic in Detroit was fined $500.00 for failing to have a proper controlled substance license, plus fees for compliance.  Abortionists like Seabrooks are feeling the effects of consistent oversight for the first time in 42 years. Their shoddy and sometimes dangerous practices are coming to an end. (May 2015)

  • Abortionist Jacob Kalo is struggling to get himself out of trouble, including still being prevented from performing surgical abortions at his notorious clinic in Lathrup Village. The state ordered surgical abortions to cease there last year based on persistent inspection failures. An administrative hearing to determine whether the clinic would be allowed to re-start surgical abortions was slated for June 9, 2015.  That hearing was postponed at Kalo's request as he seems to be embroiled in other personal challenges (a separate a private lawsuit) and can't seem to manage the problems he's caused for himself all at the same time. (Ongoing)

  • Infamous abortionists, Angel Ojeda and Michael Roth are currently subjects of a lawsuit stemming from the Eastland Women's Center abortion clinic in Detroit. The two are accused of misdiagnosing an ectopic pregnancy, with Ojeda prescribing the RU-486 abortion pill regimen to a 23-year-old college student. When complications from the undetected, but ongoing ectopic pregnancy developed, both Ojeda and Roth are accused of misdiagnosing the woman's situation and delaying proper treatment. Eventually her fallopian tube ruptured, which required life-saving surgery to remove her fallopian tube. Perhaps with this incident, the Eastland abortion clinic will receive additional scrutiny by state regulators. (Lawsuit filed February 2015)

Abortionist in northern Indiana surrenders license to operate Gary clinic

Yesterday, abortionist Ulrich “George” Klopfer surrendered his license to operate at his abortion clinic in Gary, Indiana.  The clinic has been closed since May 27, 2015.  On June 25, Klopfer will face a hearing with the Indiana Medical Licensing Board over his medical license which is currently under review.  Klopfer has had various issues including failing to report statutory rape in a timely manner. 

Klopfer will be in front of the Indiana Medical Licensing Board on June 25 for a hearing regarding the status of his medical licenses. His licenses are currently listed as “valid while under review.” The hearing was scheduled after the Indiana attorney general’s office filed an official complaint in September.

According to Nick Goodwin, spokesman for the Professional Licensing Agency, the outcome of Klopfer’s medical licensing hearing could range from no sanction to a letter of reprimand, to a fine, to the license being placed on probation, suspension or revoked.

Klopfer also has a court date set for July 13 in misdemeanor court in Lake County for failing to file a timely report of a terminated pregnancy he provided to a girl younger than the age of 14. He was charged with the same misdemeanor in St. Joseph County, but was granted pretrial diversion in December, with charges dismissed within a year if he abides by terms of the program.

Michigan woman shares horrific abortion experience

On the radio show Kresta in the Afternoon, a Michigan woman whose late-term abortion was botched shared her experience. 

DAY ONE:

The first day, Jessica said that she received an injection of digoxin and her overall visit to the clinic lasted about twenty minutes.

Digoxin is a drug injected into an unborn baby to cause his or her heart to stop in preparation for what amounts to a stillborn birth.

It was very painful, Jessica reiterated.

“The first day I was told there would be mild cramping. And, you actually go into labor. When they send you home…I had my son natural and this was much worse.”

Because the pain was so acute, Jessica’s husband called the abortion clinic’s emergency number and they told her under no circumstances to go to the emergency room.

DAY TWO

Jessica said that on day two she was not given any pain medication for the procedure.

“I was told I would have medications and fluids…I was expecting sedation and medication,” she said.

She recalls that after forty-five minutes the abortionist had to stop to call 911 due to a perforated uterus and massive blood loss.

Population explosion fear-mongering exposed, human life is precious

The New York Times recently published a lengthy article and produced a 12-minute video on the zero population growth movement of late 60's and 70's and how the widely believed claims of population control experts like Paul Ehrlich have proven to be wildly wrong.  

No one was more influential — or more terrifying, some would say — than Paul R. Ehrlich, a Stanford University biologist. His 1968 book, “The Population Bomb,” sold in the millions with a jeremiad that humankind stood on the brink of apocalypse because there were simply too many of us. Dr. Ehrlich’s opening statement was the verbal equivalent of a punch to the gut: “The battle to feed all of humanity is over.” He later went on to forecast that hundreds of millions would starve to death in the 1970s, that 65 million of them would be Americans, that crowded India was essentially doomed, that odds were fair “England will not exist in the year 2000.” Dr. Ehrlich was so sure of himself that he warned in 1970 that “sometime in the next 15 years, the end will come.” By “the end,” he meant “an utter breakdown of the capacity of the planet to support humanity.”

Picture of Paul R. Ehrlich via the Telegraph
Even though Ehrlich predictions have proven embarrassingly wrong, he still clings to his beliefs despite the overwhelming evidence.

At the blog of the Acton Institute, Joseph Sunde reacts to the article and video and the problems in Ehrlich's worldview.

For Ehrlich and many others, humans simply take, take, take; there’s no make, make, make. And thus, the struggle for provision, prosperity, and human flourishing is quickly reduced to a mere battle over consumption. We are leeches, drainers, and destroyers, a virus on the Earth that must be curbed and contained, if not wiped out completely (a “cancer,” as Ehrlich sometimes prefers).

Take, for instance, one of his lines in the video above: “The idea that every woman should have as many babies as she wants is, to me, exactly the same kind of idea as everybody ought to be permitted to throw as much of their garbage into their neighbor’s backyard as they want.”

Humans = bags of backyard garbage. NBD.

Fortunately for us (and for Ehrlich), humans aren’t globs of trash and the “global community” isn’t some morbid zero-sum realm wherein every new baby represents a dead mushroom on a distant mountaintop.

As Julian Simon famously observed, humans are the “ultimate resource” — valuable assets to our families, neighbors, distant strangers, and, yes, Planet Earth herself. We were created in the image of a creator-God to be co-creators and gift-givers, sharing, exchanging, collaborating, and innovating alongside the grand family of humankind. Each new child represents not some bag of waste, but a a creator and a dreamer — a unique and precious person born for relationship and brimming with capacity for production, investment, and love.
 
More than a generation after his book's apocalyptic warnings, Ehrlich's blindness to the uniqueness and preciousness of human life prevent him from admitting his obvious errors.

California Medical Association abandons opposition to assisted suicide

The California Medical Association has dropped their decades long opposition to assisted suicide after a bill to legalize assisted suicide was introduced in California. 

The CMA said its change to neutral on the issue marked the first by a state medical association. It comes amid renewed debate over doctor-assisted suicide following the death of brain cancer patient Brittany Maynard last fall.

The American Medical Association remains opposed to doctors participating in assisted suicide, saying in a policy statement on its website that doing so was fundamentally incompatible with a doctor's role as a healer, would be difficult to control and posed "serious societal risks." 

The press release announcing their decision is filled with absurd attempts to cover their disregard for the lives of those considering suicide and sounds eerily like the rhetoric and euphemisms used to defend abortion on demand.  Assisted suicide is called “physician aid in dying” or “end of life options.”  The relationship between doctor and patient is exalted. Helping someone kill themselves is equated with methods of “treatment.”

Important issues, which previously led the California Medical Association to oppose assisted suicide and attempts to legalize it, are not mentioned or refuted.  Those issues include the potentials for abuse, the recognition that desire for suicide is rarely a rational decision, fears that legalizing assisted suicide could undermine hospice care, the uncertainly of medical diagnoses, and how assisted suicide violates the fundamental “do no harm” medical ethic.

While the California Medical Association is the first state medical association group to announce they are "neutral" on physicians helping to kill patients, only time will time if they are the last.

New television ads starting this week

Starting this week, two new prolife television ads will begin airing across Michigan. 

One ad is part of the compassion project and features Sheryl and her story of being raped and having an abortion.

“It was acquaintance rape and he denied everything. Next thing I know, I’m in an abortion and I just pretty much went and totally shut down.  I just wish society would realize the long term effect that abortion has on women even in the case of rape. You know, to further traumatize a woman the way I’ve been further traumatized. I just don’t want this to happen to no one else.”  - Sheryl       



You can watch Sheryl’s full story here.

The second ad is a remake of our Seed ad and is a remake of a 1994 favorite which illustrates that like a plant, when life is allowed to grow, the results are beautiful.

Testimony on Rape Survivor Child Custody Act

Right to Life of Michigan members and the general public have been introduced to Shauna Prewitt thanks to her courageous advocacy mission and the television ad and video produced by RLM, which aired in the past several weeks on statewide TV.  Shauna's story of conceiving a child through rape and then fighting back against her attacker's effort to assert parental rights prompted the introduction of House Bill 4481 in the Lansing last month.

Already, the bill is being lined up for action in the House Criminal Justice Committee this coming Tuesday, May 19, at 9:00 a.m.

H.B. 4481 would allow a rape survivor who becomes pregnant from assault to petition the family court to terminate the parental rights of her assailant under a "clear and convincing" evidence standard and without the necessity of a criminal conviction.  Current law provides for the termination of parental rights of a man who impregnates a woman via sexual assault if he is convicted of felony rape.  Unfortunately, felony rape convictions are difficult to obtain and require a legal standard of "beyond a reasonable doubt".  This bill would make the standard for termination of parental rights the same as for those who abuse or neglect their child.

Late term abortion advocate Wendy Davis to speak at Planned Parenthood event in Michigan

Today, abortion advocate Wendy Davis is scheduled to speak at Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan’s annual luncheon.  Davis’ claim to fame was her filibuster as a Texas state senator against a law in Texas which banned abortions after 20 weeks.

The media fell in love with her pink running shoes and she became the Democratic nominee for governor in Texas, an election she lost handily. 

Her advocacy for late term abortion won her fame and now she speaks at pro-abortion events across the country.

U.S. House passes Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

On May 13th, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36) by a vote of 242 to 184.  This legislation would generally ban abortion after 20 weeks of fetal age (or 22 weeks of pregnancy) based on congressional findings that unborn children of that age are capable of feeling pain.

The measure passed in a 242-to-184 vote, with one member voting present. The bill dropped a provision in the original version that would have required women who became pregnant through rape to report their assault to law enforcement authorities to be eligible for an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Under the new bill, such women would have to receive counseling or medical treatment at least 48 hours before having an abortion. In cases involving minors, abortion providers would have to alert the authorities for the girls’ protection, it says. The bill, known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, would also make it easier to sue a noncompliant abortion provider.

Let's remember vulnerable human life during the National Day of Prayer

Today, May 7, is the National Day of Prayer. The first National Day of Prayer in 1952 invited people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. It is encouraging to know that every president since has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.

As we keep our nation in our thoughts, let's too, remember mothers facing unplanned pregnancies and their children preparing to be born. People compose a nation.  

A mother who considers abortion has the burden of a life or death decision. May we be the help that she needs. It is important to pray for all children, born and unborn, because the future of our nation depends on it.

"I felt like I live in a society that has gone mad"

Josh Brahm, a prolife advocate and President of Equal Rights Institute, recently visited a display at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry with members of his staff.  The display includes children who were miscarried at various stages of prenatal development and preserved.  In a moving blog post, Brahm describes their experiences and reactions to visiting this exhibit. 
   
My immediate emotional reaction upon entering the room was sadness. There was a seriousness to this room, and the design of the room was clearly intended to underline the seriousness of the exhibit. This isn’t a place to let your kids run free like they can at some of the other sections of the museum.

The youngest baby was only a few weeks old, and was very small. I took my time, spending several moments in front of each child. As I looked at the youngest embryos, I thought to myself that I could understand why a pro-choice person could see this part of the exhibit and still feel convinced that these early embryos aren’t morally significant. I certainly think they are, but it’s not because of the way they look. It’s because of what I believe about the nature of all humans, including the youngest of us.

It became harder for me to step into the shoes of a pro-choice person and defend abortion rights later in the exhibit though. Around the point where the baby in front of us was nine weeks old, it became clearer than anything that this is a little human, not an unorganized mass of developing tissue..... 
At Equal Rights Institute it’s a priority to us to be very careful with philosophy, and understand why the most philosophical pro-choice advocates believe what they believe. And yet, staring at these children, I felt like I live in a society that has gone mad.

U.S. House votes to strike down D.C. law aimed at prolife groups

Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 228-192 to nullify pro-abortion legislation passed by the District of Columbia.  The pro-abortion legislation in question could force prolife organizations in the District of Columbia to hire pro-abortion employees. 

Opponents of the local law said it would force employers like churches, religious schools and anti-abortion organizations to violate their own religious beliefs and provide contraceptive coverage to their workers. They said it could also prevent such groups from acting against employees who privately undermine their employer's mission, such as by volunteering at abortion clinics.

"I stand here to defend the rights of religious institutions and pro-life companies to honor their faith and respect the sanctity of life," said Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Mo.

NATIONAL RIGHT TO LIFE LETTER TO LAWMAKERS

National Right to Life urges Congress to pass H. J. Res. 43, prolife groups shouldn’t be forced to hire pro-abortion activists

National Right to Life Committee is urging members of Congress to vote in favor of H.J. Res. 43 which would nullify pro-abortion legislation passed by the District of Columbia.  The pro-abortion legislation in question could force prolife organizations in the District of Columbia to hire pro-abortion employees. 

In a letter to legislators, National Right to Life’s legislative team writes:

The RHNDA prohibits employers within the District from engaging in "discrimination" on the basis of "decisions" reached by employees, or potential employees, regarding "reproductive health" matters.  It is not disputed that abortion is among the matters encompassed by the term "reproductive health" as used in the new law.  The scope of the RHNDA is very broad, covering any "decisions" that are "related to the use . . . of a particular . . . medical service . . ." [emphasis added]

The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) advocates for recognition that each unborn child is a member of the human family, and that each abortion stops a beating heart and ends the life of a developing human being.  That viewpoint is shared by many women who once believed otherwise and submitted to abortions, and by many men who once believed otherwise and were complicit in abortion; such persons number among the most committed activists within our organization and other pro-life organizations.  Yet it would be intolerable for an advocacy organization such as ours to be required to hire, or prohibited from firing, a person who makes a "decision" to engage in advocacy or any other activity that is directly antithetical to our core mission to lawfully advocate for the civil rights of the unborn. 

Under the RHNDA, using any "decision . . . related to" abortion to inform decisions about hiring, firing, or benefits (among other things) would expose our organization both to enforcement actions by the District government bureaucracy, and to private lawsuits (some of which would likely be engendered by "sting" operations by pro-abortion advocates).

Trafficking legislation passes U.S. Senate without abortion funding after Democrats finally end disgraceful filibuster

After spending a month attempting to allow federal funds to be used to pay for elective abortions, Senate Democrats agreed to end their filibuster of the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act and allow a vote on the legislation. The agreement prevents federal funds for being used to pay for abortions and retains Hyde Amendment language in the legislation. 

Democrats repeatedly blocked an earlier version of the proposal, arguing it would create an expansion of the Hyde Amendment, which restricts the use of federal funds for abortions.
The deal that resolved the stalemate requires money for the victims’ fund to come from two sources: criminal fines and money that Congress previously appropriated.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) touted the vote as a win for Republicans and anti-abortion groups, saying that under the agreement, the trafficking legislation “won’t violate longstanding, bipartisan Hyde precedent.”

Republicans also shot down a last-ditch effort by Democrats to strip the abortion provisions from the legislation, which if successful would likely have killed the bill.

Reported Abortions Increase for 2014

Two Dynamics: Chemical Abortions and Women from Other States Coming to Michigan

Data released by the Michigan Department of Community Health showed an increase in the number of reported abortions performed in 2014. A total of 27,629 induced abortions were reported in Michigan in 2014, which was a 5.8 percent increase from the total of 26,120 reported in 2013 but a 43.7 percent decrease since 1987 (the year with the largest number of induced abortions).

Chemical abortions (non-surgical) increased in 2014. In 2014, 6,935 chemical abortions were committed which is up from the 5,103 committed in 2013.

Michigan residents received 95.3 percent of the induced abortions that occurred in Michigan in 2014. The data shows an increase in the number of women from other states coming to Michigan for abortions; in 2013 there were 708 non-Michigan residents who had abortions and in 2014 that number increased to 1,317.

The trend of declining abortions committed on girls under the age of 18 continued. In 1990, 3,820 abortions on minors were reported. The reported figure for 2014 is 917. This represents a 76 percent decrease since 1990.

No matter what the procedure or where the mothers come from to have an abortion, we are deeply saddened by the loss of precious lives. While the overall trend of decreasing abortions is encouraging, this year’s increase and the annual overall numbers serve as a reminder that our prolife efforts must continue - lives depend on us.

Illinois abortion clinic kills woman and gets out of fine by changing one word in their name

In 2009, Antonesha Ross died after receiving an abortion at Women's Aid Clinic in Illinois.  In an effort to get out of paying a state fine for one of their patients dying and the deplorable conditions at the clinic, the abortion clinic changed their name to Women's Aid Center. Unfortunately, a group of judges is letting the clinic off the hook. 

The clinic owner, Larisa Rozansky, has argued that the Women's Aid Clinic, which filed for bankruptcy before closing in 2011, has no money to pay the fine and that her new clinic, the Women's Aid Center, is an entirely separate entity that cannot be held responsible......

The Illinois Department of Public Health challenged that interpretation, pointing out that the new clinic has two of the same phone numbers as the old clinic and that for a while it had the same website and location. The state sought $3,135 held in the new clinic's bank accounts, arguing that the money could be traced to the old clinic.

The old clinic was fined $9,000 for failing to specify in writing which medical conditions would make a patient ineligible for an abortion, a violation stemming from the care of Ross, who died of severe pneumonia a few hours after a first-trimester abortion. The clinic was also fined $18,000 for failing to hire a registered nurse to supervise care and circulate in the operating room, and $9,000 for sanitary and equipment issues.

Retired abortionist left thousands of patients records at abandoned clinic

Infamous Michigan abortionist Alberto Hodari is coming under fire again after it was discovered that he unlawfully left thousands of patient files unattended at this former abortion clinic in Flint. 

According to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs records, Hodari is no longer licensed to practice as a physician.

When he closed down the Feminine Health Care Clinic in 2013, he abandoned hundreds of boxes filled with very private patient information.

ABC12 News talked a pro life activist who went into the facility earlier this month.

"The door opened and for me, the rest is history. It was all right there," she said.

She said when she looked inside, she saw hundreds of boxes of medical records, papers scattered all over the floor and piles of hypodermic needles.
