The Law of Life Project sees twelve major goals within the scope of our mission:

1. Establishing through lawful process the juridical existence of the human person from conception to natural death in all relevant jurisdictions

2. Advance, through legislative, administrative and legal case advocacy, the elements of social policy designed to constrain human subject experimentation within universal

ly accepted principles governing experiments on human subjects – principles reflected in the Hippocratic Tradition (first, “do no harm”), the Nuremberg Code, the World Medical Association’s Declaration of Helsinki, the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, and many other statements. Accordingly, members of the human species who cannot give informed consent for research should not be the subjects of an experiment unless they personally may benefit from it or the experiment carries no significant risk of harming them.

3. Using state “informed consent” and ultimately “prohibition” legislation, when prudent, to better regulate and ultimately end legal protection for so-called “elective abortion”, always excepting “medical abortions to save the life of the mother or where abortion can mitigate a serious risk of a substantial and irreversible impairment of the functioning of a major bodily organ or system of the pregnant woman should the pregnancy be continued and also excepting, only where politically necessary as an incremental step, abortions in the extremely rare cases (less than 2%) of reported r**e or in**st.

5. Regulate through False Claim Act investigation and litigation and ultimate end direct or indirect governmental funding of abortion.

6. Provide the legal and legislative advocacy support needed to defend the health care right of conscience in court and also enact model Health Care Right of Conscience legislation at both the federal and state levels as a necessary "opt-out" of mandated health care laws and treatment or research protocols for health care providers, with a private right of action for violations of such legislation.

7. Provide the legal and legislative advocacy support needed to defend the rights of biological mothers involved in surrogacy arrangements, including the state law enactment of model statute prohibiting surrogate mother contracts, prohibit enforcement of and establishing standards to award custody of children born as a result of such arrangements.

8. Provide legal support needed to defend pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) from false and politically-motivated private or governmental claims alleging the unauthorized practice of medicine, false advertising, or unfair business practices.

9. Provide legal support needed to assure that patient's right to receive care and compassion is not replaced by a doctor's right to prescribe poison or administer a lethal injection and to mobilize and guide the volunteer attorneys needed to defend disabled persons who lack the legal advocacy they need to protect their constitutional right to life, including nutrition and water, particularly in jurisdictions where “futility of care” laws or practices are denying patient’s life without due process of law.

10. Provide legal and public education support, in collaboration with other sponsoring organizations, for the International Tribunal on the Law of Life’s “Life on Trial” global communications project commencing in 2011-2012.

11. Develop an “Arm the Advocates for Life” training program that annually provides up to two “fellowships” for young attorneys to work at the LOLP supervising the training of up to two eight law students under the overall supervision of the LOLP’s Managing Director and General Counsel. The AAL in the 2012-2013 timeframe, will also include a continuing legal education (CLE) program for state and federal prosecutors to educate them on the laws and regulations protective of life that they have an obligation to investigate and enforce (e.g. medical clinic licensing laws and regulations covering out-patient surgical abortion).

12. Develop and maintain a LoLP website designed to provide public education and distribute legal resources through its Law of Life Project.

Austin Forced to Pay Pregnancy Centers $461,000 After Trying to Shut Them Down

JC-LOLP's General Counsel, Samuel B. Casey, served as lead trial counsel for its client in this case, Austin LifeCare. When court costs are added to the attorneys fees, the City of Austin agreed to pay a total of $480,000. Hopefully, these fees will deter other municipalities, like the City of Austin, from violating the constituttional rights of pregnancy resource centers.

Human Capital - Episode 1: Planned Parenthood's Black Market in Baby Parts

The Center for Medical Progress just released the third video further exposing Planned Parenthood's business of selling aborted baby's organs to the highest bidder.

Anyone with eyes to see—at least with eyes willing to see—can recognize the tiny hand and forearm, the tiny leg, picked at in a glass pie plate. You can see the neural tissue—what should have finished becoming a child’s brain and spinal cord—as a Planned Parenthood abortionist dismisses the idea of a flat fee and suggests a “per-item thing is a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”

Be warned—this video isn’t well-dressed people sipping wine and discussing “specimens” over lunch. This is right inside a Planned Parenthood facility.

You may be tempted to turn away, thinking how much will decent people be able to stomach as this exposé of Planned Parenthood unfolds? But don’t turn away.

Our attorneys here at JC-LOLP have previously described the deep cuts in Planned Parenthood's non-abortion services and prenatal care and its ethodical push to build abortion mega-centers measuring tens of thousands of square feet, particularly in low income neighborhoods. Abortion, focusing on minority populations, and the sale of body parts is the business of Planned Parenthood.

What you can do . . .

Contact your legislators, state and national. Write letters to the editor of your local paper. Call in to your local radio station. Demand your local media cover this story. Join a march. Start a march. Forward and share this email. Share it and the video on social media, and when you do, ask your friends to share it too.

Like we do here at JC-LOLP, you’ll no doubt want to weep for the 57 million babies slaughtered since 1973. Weep also for what this nation has done under the cover of its laws and the culture of death it continues to support.

But don't turn away. Look this evil squarely in the eye and call it out, once and for all.

Congressman Diane Black - More Than A Video: Planned Parenthood’s Decades-Long Culture of Deceit

It's time to stop giving the abortion industry's leading abortion provider, Plannned Parenthod, any more federal taxpayer dollars. Call your representatives in Congress and tell them to sponsor and vote for Congresswoman Diane Black's bill,
H.R. 217, the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act. This much-needed legislation would withhold Title X grants from Planned Parenthood and any other “health care” provider that performs abortions or that provides funds to organizations that do. The legislation, which Congresswoman Black first introduced in 2013, has the support of 151 cosponsors in Congress and would effectively defund America’s largest abortion mill once and for all. For the reasons set forth in Congressswoman Black's article below, JC-LOLP's attorneys are personally Congress to immediately act on the measure in light of these latest news developments.

Over the last week, Planned Parenthoods slogan Care no matter what has become even more of a cruel irony after an undercover video exposed one of the organizations senior doctors callously describing the process by which she harvests aborted babies tissue and organs.

Kathryn Lopez - Planned Parenthood's Travesty of Sacrifice

What has America become? Our President to advance his ill--gotten political fortunes says: "God bless Planned Parenthood" who we now learn as a matter of regular business practice to defray their "business" (abortion) expenses plan their late-term abortions to insure while they are destroying the baby they can harvest the marketable organs to "donate" to stem cell research firms who then pay them a "fee" per organ. Planned Parenthood's response that it is all for a "humanitarian cause" (pluripotent stem cell research) reminds us of the German residents of Auschwitz who the allies found wearing the shoes and jewels of Jews who had been incinerated at the nearby concentration camp who gave this excuse: "we didn't kill the Jews we are just using their shoes!" But PP is worse because they are doing the killing and they are being paid for both the killing and the "donating" of the organs. Whether this is or is not currently illegal will be the subject of Congressional and state investigations. But it should be illegal. While they are at it, Congress should amend the language of the Dicker-Wicker Amendment to make it clear that federal taxpayer money should not be used directly or indirectly to pay for destructive human embryo research that necessarily requires the destruction of embryonic human beings -- something that the Obama Administration currently funds everyday.

"We were at one, blood to blood, as no other kind of union could make us," the English essayist Malcolm Muggeridge wrote, recalling giving his wife his own blood during a critical medical moment.

JC-LOLP has long argued that Planned Parenthood (PP), the abortion industry's largest provider, should not be supported by the American taxpayer. Here's yet another reason: they are getting rich off the taxpayers. American Life League just released their report on the salaries of PP’s top headquarters personnel as well as all the CEOs of PP’s 62 affiliates. You can see the complete report here with CEO salaries listed by name and by affiliate:http://www.stopp.org/pdfs/2015/STOPP_AffiliatesCEOs2015.pdf

PP's National President, Cecile Richards, made $590,928 in 2014.
The top 12 people at PPFA headquarters made an average of $345,338 in 2014. The average CEO of a PP affiliate made $186,071 in 2013. Thirteen percent of the CEOs made over $300,000 that year.

This is crony capitalism at its worst. Let's stop taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.

the U.S. Supreme Court today again refused to resolve a conflict among the U.S. Courts of Appeals and left standing a 4th Circuit Court of Appeals decision that told North Carolina that they could not require an abortion doctor to require a mother to have an opportunity to see her ulltrasound and have what it depicted explained to her before she could give her voluntary, fully-informed consent to the abortion of her unborn child.

Call your U.S. Senators and urge them to follow the House and enact the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, as introduced yesterday in the Senate by its sponsor, Senator Lindsey Graham.

In 2013, a congressional report found that some 11,000 abortions take place each year at 20 weeks or more after fertilization.

Despite there being no national law banning the procedure, a number of states have taken it upon themselves to limit women’s access to late-term abortions, at least after 20-weeks when there is no doubt the unborn child feels the excruciating pain of the abortion and the risks of abortion at that time are greater than the maternal risks of carrying the child to term

Nationwide Ban on Late-Term Abortions Reaches Senate

Call your U.S. Senators and urge them to follow the House and enact the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Getting one step closer to what could be the most significant pro-life victory since the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, Sen. Lindsey Graham today introduced a measure in the U.S. Senate that would drastically limit women’s ability to access abortions past a certain point in their pregnancy.

The legislation, called the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, passed the House in May by a 242-to-184 vote and would ban abortions after 20 weeks (approximately halfway through a pregnancy).

The bill is based on a broad consensus of research that shows unborn infants are able to feel pain 20 weeks after fertilization, and at this point, children’s hospitals throughout the U.S. “routinely” administer fetal anesthesia when performing surgery.

The measure includes exceptions for cases of r**e, in**st or to save the life of the mother. According to public opinion polls, the majority of Americans support limits on late-term abortions.

For that reason, Graham and leaders of the pro-life community hope to rally bipartisan support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., introduced a measure that would drastically limit women’s ability to access abortions past a certain point in their pregnancy.

Woman rejects abortion after she sees her baby on ultrasound | NRL News Today

JC-LOLP's attorneys have filed a "friend of the court" brief, a copy of which can be found here:

http://www.lawoflifeproject.org/sites/default/files/pdf/2015/JC_LOLP_Walker_McGill_USSC_amicus_brief_No_14_1172.pdf

The brief asks the United States Supreme Court to reverse the decision of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Walker-McGill v. Stuart holding that the State of North Carolina may not constitutionally require a doctor to fully inform a pregnant mother about what her ultrasound shows prior to her consenting to an abortion. The 4th Circuit's Walker-McGill decision directly conflicts with the United State Supreme Court's Casey, Whalen and Zauderer decisions, as well as the 5th Circuit's Lakey decision, and the 8th Circuit's Rounds decision.

Rebekah Nancarrow had an ultrasound at Planned Parenthood (for which she paid $80), but wasn’t allowed to see the image. She was told by a Planned Parenthood worker that seeing the fetus on the screen “will only make it harder on you.”

House Passes 20-Week Abortion Pain Bill on Anniversary of Gosnell Murder Conviction - Breitbart

Good news! On the 2nd anniversary of late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell's convictions for infanticide, the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday finally passes bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks, in line with the laws of most nations.

The bill now moves to the Senate. President Obama, who voted in favor of infanticide when he was in the Illinois legislature, has threatened to veto the bill. Call your U.S. Senators and urge them to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Polls show most Americans support a ban of elective abortions after 20 weeks. An estimated 10,000 to 20,000 abortions occur in the USA after the 20th week of pregnancy. 42 states bar abortions after certain points in pregnancies, including 10 with bans after 20 weeks.

The bill passed by a vote of 242-184. Four Democrats voted in favor of the bill and four Republicans voted against it. The measure now heads to the Senate.

As anticipated, the issue is now being joined in the Indiana State Legislature, whether sexual orientation and gender identity laws should be written to trump the religious liberty rights of all Indiana citizens. Based upon twenty years of legal history and for the reasons set forth below, I think Indiana's current religious freedom restoration act provides the appropriate equalizing balance between religious liberty and sexual orientation non-discrimination principles.
At a time when many Americans may be wondering why government's support of religious liberty for all Americans is so important, it is helpful to reflect upon President Lincoln's Proclamation of March 30, 1863 requesting that April 30, 1863 be a national day of fasting and prayer. Many Americans faithfully responded to President Lincoln's request. With his issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, effective January 1, 1863, his call for prayer and fasting in March 1863 and the Union's extremely costly victory at Gettysburg in July, the civil war began its journey towards it ultimate resolution in 1865.

On March 4. 1865, in his famous Second Inaugural Address just before his assassination on April 14, 1865, President Lincoln returned to the theme of Divine Providence in the affairs of this nation:
"The Almighty has His own purposes. "Woe unto the world because of offenses; for it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh. If we shall suppose that American slavery is one of those offenses which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."
Louantha Kerr, thanks for telling me about this great site.
Thank you for your work in Oklahoma!!!!

JC-LOLP's General Counsel, Sam Casey, said yesterday afternoon at the time the brief was filed:

The abortion industry's longstanding opposition and ignorance of any reasonable safety regulation of two powerful drugs never intended by their manufacturers to be used for abortion, because of the industry's selfish desire to make more money while providing less than safe medical supervision for abortion is unconscionable. Hopefully, the Supreme Court of Oklahoma will accept our Oklahoma Doctors' 'friend of the court' advice that Oklahoma law properly reflects the sound medical evidence which demonstrates that the FDA-approved Mifeprex Regimen, including the use of misoprostol as prescribed in the FDA-approved Mifeprex Regimen, is safer than off-label uses of mifepristone and/or misoprostol to induce a medical abortion. Since surgical abortion is always available as an option throughout the first trimester, and since it is safer and faster than medical abortion, the State's restriction of medical abortions from 63 to 49 days poses no undue burden on access to abortion. Further, since treatment of ectopic pregnancy and medical abortion are considered separate procedures by the medical community, the Act's restrictions on medical abortions in no way restrict the use of methotrexate to treat ectopic pregnancies. Consequently, this Oklahoma law best protects women's health while constitutionally posing no undue burden on women's access abortion, as required by the United States Supreme Court.
Wouldn't we be shocked if any man told us, "Personally I am opposed to r**e, but I respect the man's right to choose...? As a father or a grandfather,no man would compromise to allow the r**e of his daughter or grand-daughter long as it was 'safe and rare' or only legal under 'specified circumstances.' R**e is a violent act that is criminal without compromise (even when the girl is a willing sexual participant but underage). Yet, another violent act that actually causes death—abortion—is politicized as a reproductive right or an acceptable exception.

In the face of the kind of adversity of soul that comes with your daughter being given an 'INCOMPATIBLE WITH LIFE' diagnosis in utero and the medical community's strong pressure to end the life of your daughter through a late-term abortion, here is a rare example of a single post-abortive African mother's UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for her baby child. As you listen to Stephanie Spidell's story below, reflect on how it was a mother's unconditional love for her child, and the support of her husband who was not the father of that child, that in the midst of their crisis pregnancy made the first Christmas possible.
Who will disarm the abortionists? As we celebrate the 5% decline in USA abortions, let's not forget or cease our efforts to save the lives of the 1.15 million unborn children (3150 children per day) whose lives are terminated by induced abortion every year in America's abortion clinics. Here are the latest statistics released for 2009 on November 23, 2012 by the Centers for Disease Control.
WHO IS WRONG. The second edition of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Safe Abortion: Technical and Policy Guidance for Health Systems deserves scrutiny because it raises questions about whether it promotes the highest standards of medical care. The guidance aims at ensuring that abortion may be performed more widely by non-medical personnel even if it has to proceed without diagnosis, ultrasound, follow-up care, or drugs that have become standard in medical practice. A primary concern is the WHO seems to be recommending abortion practices for women in developing countries that have been rejected by medical experts in the developed world. WHO bases its promotion of the revised guidelines on claims that abortion is both safer than childbirth and also a human right, neither of which enjoys international agreement.
It is often said by social scientists that "demography is destiny." If so the study (set forth in English) below, Demography in Life: How Goes Europe?, is a wake-up call to stop listening to the eugenicists who tells us we have too many people and not of the right sorts; and begin listening to the demographers who are telling us that "under-population" will be our biggest social problem everywhere, except maybe Africa, that can only be mitigated by a renewal of marriage, family and the the birth of at least 2 children per fertile woman. Something to ponder at Christmas when we celebrate, not denigrate, the birth of a child.
Here's a great example of a church-based "no longer bound" abortion recovery program. Too many women and men need to heal from abortion-related trauma but fee there is nowhere to go. Thankfully, more and more churches are seeing the light and providing the means for post-abortive people to recover and be healed.
