Topic - Live Action
In film, video, and other media, the term live-action refers to cinematography not produced using animation. As it is the norm, the term is usually superfluous, but it makes an important distinction in situations in which one might normally expect animation, as in a Pixar film, a video game or when the work is adapted from an animated cartoon, such as The Flintstones or Josie and the Pussycats films, or The Tick television program. Use of puppets in films such as The Dark Crystal is also considered to be live-action, provided that stop-motion is not used to animate them. - Source: Wikipedia
The cruelty of fetal dismemberment is fostering palliative measures
So shocking about late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell was how he killed his victims. When we learn how the abortionist slit the necks of struggling, crying infants, moments after a failed abortion, and scissored their spinal cords, we're sickened, and rightfully so.
A pro-life group's "undercover video" campaign has caught a prominent abortion doctor telling a pregnant woman that if her baby didn't die after a lethal injection, he would take it out "in pieces."
A pro-life activist group that uses hidden cameras to go undercover in abortion clinics called Wednesday for a government investigation into the practice of letting "born-alive" children die.
New undercover videos of abortion professionals explaining late-term abortions, coupled with states passing strict abortion laws and a horror-show abortion criminal case, are keeping abortion at the top of the news — an unexpected development after the nation re-elected its most vocal pro-choice president.
Amid new concerns about the brutality of illegal forms of abortions, President Obama plans to deliver the keynote address at Planned Parenthood Federation of America's annual fundraising dinner Thursday.
When President Obama ridiculed small businesses and said, "You didn't build that," he was correct in the case of the abortion industry. The tax burden on American families has built the biggest abortion chain in the history of mankind.
One of the easiest telephone calls I would get as spokesman for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops was the call about Komen. Easy in the sense that the issues were clear. Susan G. Komen for the Cure gives money to Planned Parenthood. If you don't want your money to be given to the nation's largest abortion provider, don't give it to Komen.
Most feminists defend abortion rights to the death - literally, for the babies who are killed. When the issue is abortion for purposes of sex selection, however, some liberals trade the notion of "my body, my business" for "protect the unborn women."
In the wake of a damning Media Research Center report that broadcast news networks afforded a mere 19 seconds of coverage to historic Catholic lawsuits challenging the White House on certain mandates in the health care bill, religious and pro-life leaders have stepped forward to express "outrage" at ABC, CBS and NBC.
When it comes to feminist goals, working to end sex-selection abortions should be common ground for all sides. It is a real war on women, costing the lives of girls simply because they are girls. While mainstream American values reject gender-based killings as patently offensive, in this war on women in the womb, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry are on the side of abortion-trumps-all.
Late last month, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels promised to sign legislation barring Planned Parenthood from receiving any federal funds in his state. This measure is long overdue: Planned Parenthood does not deserve one dime of taxpayer money. Not only is Planned Parenthood the biggest abortion chain in the country, but its Indiana affiliate has been caught on camera giving medical misinformation to women and covering up the sexual abuse of vulnerable underage girls with secret abortions.
The pro-lifers at Live Action struck again when they posted tapes Wednesday showing that Planned Parenthood's claims of offering mammograms are false.
Dr. Bernard Nathanson died last week at age 84 — a towering figure in the pro-life movement, who in an earlier life had been responsible for more than 75,000 abortions, had co-founded what is now NARAL Pro-Choice America and had directed New York City's Center for Reproductive and Sexual Health formerly the biggest abortion provider in the Western world.
I was disappointed to see the use of inconsistent and therefore slanted labels for the opposite sides of the abortion issue that appeared in Thursday's article "Judge Orders trial for Pa. abortion doctor" (Nation).
