What’s Airing on Pro-Life Perspective This Week? “Making the Difference for Mothers and Their Children,” Part 1

By Dave Andrusko

National Right to Life President Carol Tobias

As we approach the end of the year, National Right to Life President and Pro-Life Perspective Host Carol Tobias reflects on the life-saving legislation passed this year because of—and only because of–your efforts. 2011 has been a tremendous year for women and their unborn children due to your ongoing work at the grassroots level to educate and activate your neighbors, friends, and family members. That HAS saved lives and made a difference.

Mrs. Tobias begins her survey with the legislation that perhaps holds the most potential for reorienting the abortion debate: The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the groundbreaking law that protects from abortion unborn children who are able to feel pain. The measure was passed in four states in 2011–Idaho, Kansas, Oklahoma and Alabama—which  joined the Nebraska law of 2010 to reinforce the humanity of the unborn child. This kind of education saves lives.

She also discusses legislation passed by North Carolina that requires that an abortionist to display an ultrasound, and allow mothers the opportunity to view their children before making an abortion decision. Six states also addressed the very real and present threat of web-cam abortions. This are not only unbelievably dangerous to mothers, by expanding the lethal reach of the abortion empire into rural areas webcam abortions could reverse the welcomed decline in the number of abortions.

This is just a taste of what Mrs. Tobias talks about today at www.prolifeperspective.com. Tomorrow she picks up the narrative, reminding her listeners that the abortion lobby fought hard to prevent protective legislation, and to protect their bottom line.
