Just a few hours ago, we posted the March digital edition of National Right to Life News. Even after all these years, I still anticipate the first responses—pro or con—which will help me produce a better April issue of the “pro-life newspaper of record.” You can reach me at email@example.com.
We considered holding off another day to include today’s six primaries but concluded otherwise. Instead will talk about the results from Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, and Washington tomorrow at National Right to Life News Today.
In the March issue, there is a huge emphasis on three topics.
The first is the oral arguments heard last week by the United States Supreme Court in a challenge to Louisiana’s law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles.
The second is, of course, politics. In the space of less than two weeks, former Vice President Joe Biden went from “down and out” to a near-prohibitive favorite over Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders to win their party’s presidential nomination.
The elephant in the room continues to be Biden’s erratic behavior. Just today, he had profanity-filled face-off with a Michigan auto worker who accused him (according to numerous news organizations, including Reuters)of “actively trying to end the Second Amendment.” As you would expect, the Washington Post buried the tense confrontation near the end of a long celebratory story that came from the Associated Press.
The third emphasis was the courageous attempt by Senate Republicans to overcome a filibuster of two immensely important measures: the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” and the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.” Each carried more than 50 votes but not the 60 required to “invoke cloture.”
We’ll be writing more about the March issue over the next week. Please pass along stories you like using your social media, also please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
