Move over, Legally Blonde! Harvard Law School has a more impressive graduate, and her story is real. Last month, 24-year-old single mom Briana Williams graduated from Harvard Law School with her one-year-old daughter in tow, and her Instagram post celebrating the achievement went viral.
Twenty years ago, Azita Milanian was invited to go dancing with a friend, but decided to go for a jog instead. That simple decision would have life-and-death consequences. It was 1998, and Milanian had taken her dogs for a run on a trail in Altadena, California. One of the dogs, Tango, began sniffing at the ground, and Milanian made a horrifying discovery: two feet, sticking out of the dirt. She began digging and found a newborn baby boy, buried alive in a blue towel. Now, 20 years later, Milanian has finally been reunited with the baby whose life she saved.

I have been referencing the “Jaffe Memo” for some time in presentations and Jaffe on this blog. It is a chilling look at the values and motivations of the ‘movers and shakers’ in the pro-abortion community, especially several decades ago, when they were working like mad to get abortion on demand legalized throughout the United States. Far from being a matter of a “woman’s choice”, and with no regard whatsoever for a “woman’s health”, the primary concern had to do with the number and quality of the people on the earth.
25-year-old Kamelia Walters was pregnant with her second daughter when she went to St. George’s Hospital in London for a routine ultrasound in January of 2016. That’s when doctors told her that her baby appeared to have Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type III, also known as Brittle Bone Disease, and advised her to abort. Walters refused.
When Amy Wright’s two youngest children — Beau, 13, and Bitty, 8 — who both have Down syndrome were born, she became an advocate, like many parents of special-needs children. But when Wright and her husband Ben realized that 70% of people with disabilities are unemployed, they decided to take action.
An early Planned Parenthood director, who once admitted that few women died from illegal abortion because a majority were performed by physicians, also called abortion the “taking of a life” and “a traumatic experience that may have severe consequences later on.”
Editor's Note: For those who claim to be pro-life, that includes ALL life, not just pre-born or new-born babies. Those who are threatening the medical staff at Great Ormond Street hospital, I would contend are misguided individuals, or maybe even prevaricators trying to escalate the tensions of the situation. At any rate, they are not truly pro-life proponents.
Scotland Yard has been called in to investigate allegations that staff at Great Ormond Street hospital have been bombarded with violent threats and abuse over the case of the baby Charlie Gard.
This week, the United Nations Population Fund and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation co-hosted a family planning summit in London, in which foreign leaders from around the world pledged millions of dollars to promote contraceptives and abortion in places like Africa and Asia. Lip service was paid to the idea that this was to help women in developing countries escape poverty — but could the real motivation be something much more disturbing?
De De and Joe Fasciano were awaiting the birth of their first child when doctors gave them a difficult diagnosis. They were told that their little boy had Harlequin ichthyosis, a genetic condition that creates hard, thick, scaly skin. Two days after receiving the news, doctors delivered the baby boy via emergency C-section with a team of specialists standing by. His parents named him Evan.
