Washington, DC ( -- A new reported issued by a national pro-life group takes on the growing practice of "telemed abortions" -- which see abortion practitioners instruct women on using the dangerous abortion drug by video conference instead of assisting them in an in-person, on-site visit.

Remember in November

After yesterday's scandalous vote to cram tax-funded abortion down our throats, we are feeling betrayed by Congress. Thanks to Team Sarah, I can share with you how individual congressmen voted. Go to this link, print it off, and remember in November who deserves your vote.

Last night's Roll Call Vote:

Lest you are pinning any hopes on the Executive Orders signed by President Obama, consider what House Republican leader John Boehner said:

“The law of the land trumps any Executive Order, which can be reversed or altered at the stroke of a pen by this or any subsequent President without any congressional approval or notice."

A Day in the Life of Karen DiCostanzo, Hawaii Right to Life

Today we received a call from a middle school instructor because a student from her school was pregnant. The teacher explained that the girl is a special needs student who had become pregnant through the molestation of a high school age boy. The student’s mother had scheduled an abortion but had taken no further action. The unborn child would be the sacrificial lamb for another’s misdeeds.

The instructor was inquiring about Hawai’i’s state law to see whether she could legally intervene on behalf of the girl and her unborn baby. Sadly, in the Aloha State, abortion is a “fundamental” right, meaning that no one may interfere with a woman’s (or minor girl’s) right to abortion.

Many would say that in this situation, an abortion is best, even some who consider themselves pro-life. But is abortion is the best help we can offer this young lady? Does it “fix” the molestation? Or is it a way to redirect our anger and revulsion away from the situation and toward an innocent third party at the expense of the mother? Abortion is never a good choice, and the devastation it visits upon all those it touches results in physical, emotional, and spiritual scars for a lifetime.

Jesus said, “Suffer the little children to come unto me.” Are we willing to say the same, regardless of the circumstances?
