Judge Grants Request From Jahi McMath’s Family to Extend Life Support
The judge who is adjudicating the case of Jahi McMath has granted an extension for life support after a legal request from her family’s attorney.

Pro-Abortion MSNBC Host Mocks Mitt Romney’s Family for Adopting Black Baby
A pro-abortion MSNBC host is getting heavy criticism today for mocking the family of Mitt Romney for adopting a baby who is black.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry, who wore tampon earrings during a July broadcast, mocked the Romney family. As Caleb Howe of Right Scoop reports:

Why is a Children’s Hospital So Bent on Cutting Off Jahi McMath’s Life Support?
Children’s Hospital Oakland has a very good reputation where I live in the Bay Area. But its public communication around the tragedy of Jahi McMath’s ”brain death” has been astoundingly insensitive, bordering on arrogant.
The hospital’s statements quoted in today’s San Francisco Chronicle continues the maladroit insensitivity. The hospital states it will remove the ventilator the moment that can be done legally. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/30/why-is-a-childrens-hospital-so-bent-on-cutting-off-jahi-mcmaths-life-support/

My Mom Paid a Doctor to Abort Me, My Fiance’ Thanks God She Changed Her Mind
On this past December 18 I was busy gathering Christmas presents for our client’s at the Pregnancy Resource Center I work for. We connected with the post office, a boy scout troop, a high school and individual donors to make sure our client’s kids would wake up to presents under the tree.
