1) "Shortly after taking office, President Donald Trump signed an executive order re-instituting the Mexico City policy, also know as the global gag rule, which prevents groups that provide or promote abortion overseas from receiving U.S. aid money. Yesterday, his administration took further executive action to modernize the policy, applying it to all foreign-health assistance provided by government agencies, including the State Department, U.S. Agency for International Development, the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, and the Defense Department.

2)"Gov. Sam Brownback has signed 18 pro-life bills covering a broad range of issues that all go toward protecting pre-born babies."http://familypolicyalliance.com/issues/2017/05/16/kansas-governor-shows-means-pro-life-family-policy-briefing/
3)"Congressman Lamborn released the following statement in response to the Administration's changes to the Mexico City policy:
"Yesterday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson implemented the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy, formerly known as the Mexico City Policy. This policy precludes international non-governmental organizations from receiving funding from the United States if that NGO performs abortion as a method of family planning, or promotes abortion as such. Historically, this policy had applied to funds under international family planning streams. However, when President Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy in January, he further directed Secretary Tillerson to expand the policy to include all global health assistance under the Department of State, Department of Defense, and USAID. This is a critical step in protecting American taxpayers from unwittingly funding abortion overseas, while also freeing up funds to support other NGOs that are not enmeshed in the tragic business of abortion." https://lamborn.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=2001;
4)"OTTAWA, May 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Canada’s top Catholic cleric said at the March for Life that prayer and fasting are needed to end abortion and euthanasia.
“It is by the hand of God that the sanctity of human life will treasured once again in our sad land,” Cardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto said in a homily at St. Patrick’s Basilica during Mass on the morning of the March.
“We need prayer and fasting if the evils that afflict our land are to be removed,” he said"http://angelqueen.org/2017/05/16/cardinal-tells-pro-life-march-we-must-pray-and-fast-to-remove-evils-that-afflict-our-land/
5)"JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Republican dominated Missouri Senate is being called out by the Missouri Right to Life organization. The group released a statement which singled out the chamber for failing to act on pro-life legislation.
Missouri Right to Life President Steve Rupp said “Pro-life people of faith and values who went to the polls in November to elect pro-life leaders expect more!”...[Bills they want Missouri to pass are:] Among other things, the bill offers employment protections for whistle-blowers who report trafficking of baby body parts. It also prohibits fetal tissue from being donated for any reason except to determine the cause of illness or death of a fetus or for law enforcement purposes.
In addition, it calls for the Department of Health and Senior Services to perform random inspections of abortion clinics. Franklin says this provision is the result of previous inspections by the department showing lack of cleanliness and sterilization of instruments."...Finally, the measure changes the definition of “remains of a human fetus” to be the remains of the dead offspring of a human being. “It’s just to give a true definition of what has happened” said Franklin. “It’s been a loss of life, of human life.”http://www.ozarksfirst.com/news/pro-life-group-calls-out-mo-senate-for-lack-of-action/714687476
6)Press Release : "Laurens, S.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s announcement to expand the Pro-Life “Mexico City Policy” through the “Protecting Life and Global Health Assistance” initiative:
“I am thankful that we now have an administration that respects and protects life, both at home and abroad. I am pleased to see the expanded Mexico City Policy implemented in our foreign aid efforts to ensure that U.S taxpayer dollars are not spent on subsidizing non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that promote or perform the heinous act of abortion around the globe. In no way, shape, or form should taxpayer dollars support such organizations.
“The United States remains committed to global health assistance, and this initiative does not change the amount of funds available for the Department of State to continue this work. However, we must ensure that we protect the conscience of Americans that do not want to assist organizations that choose to support abortion.
“Thank you to President Trump and Secretary Tillerson for taking this step and showing the world exactly what our nation stands for.”
7)"WASHINGTON – Under President Trump's administration, the State Department announced today plans to expand the Mexico City policy that bans U.S. funding for abortions overseas. The expanded policy, known as “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance,” prohibits U.S. taxpayer money from funding foreign organizations that perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning.
The pro-life policy will apply global health assistance funding for international health programs, such as those for HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, malaria, global health security, and family planning and reproductive health, rather than abortion.
The new policy states: “The United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child (1959) calls for legal protection for children before birth as well as after birth. In keeping with this obligation, the United States does not consider abortion an acceptable element of family planning programs and will no longer contribute to those of which it is a part. Accordingly, when dealing with nations that support abortion with funds not provided by the United States Government, the United States will contribute to such nations through segregated accounts that cannot be used for abortion.”http://www.lc.org/newsroom/details/051517-state-department-expands-prolife-policy
8)"Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed a bill Friday that requires abortionists to evaluate unborn babies for their ability to live outside the womb after 20 weeks gestation. The new law bans abortions on unborn babies shown to be viable and requires medical opinions from two abortionists. Violators could be slapped with possible felony charges, sent to prison for up to three years, and have their medical licenses revoked. The law makes exceptions for cases in which carrying a baby to term endangers the mother’s life or vital organs."https://world.wng.org/2017/05/tennessee_passes_viability_test_for_abortions_after_20_weeks;
9) "Trespassing charges have been dropped against a pro-life Anglican priest who regularly prays outside of an abortion facility in California.
Father James Linton was arrested in November outside the San Bernardino Planned Parenthood while he was praying for women and babies entering the facility, according to Life Legal Defense Foundation, which represented him in the matter. Police later charged him with criminal trespassing.
Life Legal Defense Foundation described Linton’s arrest as “unjust,” and said prosecutors did not have a case against him. They said Linton stayed on the public sidewalk and never stepped onto the abortion facility’s property.
Now, prosecutors have dropped the charges against him."http://www.lifenews.com/2017/05/16/anglican-priest-facing-criminal-charges-for-praying-outside-abortion-clinic-wins-his-case/

My selfie in Feb 2017:
This is a selfie of me [Ms] Gloria Poole,Registered Nurse, and artist in all visual mediums, that I photographed yesterday to add to a blog. It is necessary to do this for several reasons: there was a well-orchestrated effort last week to totally annihilate me from the web and to steal my landline telephone, a cell phone number of mine, and there was a fake obituary that was sent to Google to try to fool the world about me. I am alive and well [except for the permanent damage to my physical body from trauma on 2 occasions]. I am adding this here today to document that I am alive and well, and still very much active on web and in other ways. I photographed this in my bathroom so I could use the mirror to see the push button on other side of camera, and forgot I had a towel over the door! And that white streak is where I wiped mirror first but didn't realize til photo that threads got on mirror. I often look very red in summer because I walkabout a lot in the sunshine. I am a white woman and that is apparent in a better light. photo-by-gloriapoole. Copyright. Gloria Poole. Missouri. 27 Feb 2017. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED to me Gloria Poole.

MORE ABOUT ME GLORIA POOLE, REGISTERED NURSE AND ARTIST, WRITER, AUTHOR, PHOTOGRAPHER, PROLIFE REPUBLICAN:
This is my selfie [Gloria Poole,RN, artist] in spring 2014 but I look the same except that I am thinner and my hair is longer but I still put it in lop-sided pony tail when I walk about or create art to prevent hair from blowing into my eyes or into paint.That is also me that you see in the "about me" box on right side of this blog and I am wearing a dark grey winter wool hat because that photo was taken of me in state of Georgia in Jan 2010 and my family in Georgia saw me wearing that hat and so did other people. So I am leaving that photo also on this blog for that reason.
