Inside the August edition of National Right to Life News

By Dave Andrusko

Earlier today, the August digital edition of National Right to Life News landed in your inbox. As always, we trust you will read the entire 41-page issue and share its contents with like-minded pro-lifers and with people who are open minded on our issues.

The August National Right to Life News issue is filled with the kind of stories you need to read to be up to date on politics, legislation, women-helping centers, bioethics, and all matters educational—to name just five categories. It also includes a last-minute update on pro-abortion Joe Biden’s selection of Sen. Kamala Harris of California, whom NRLC aptly described as “the poster child for the extreme pro-abortion position of the Democratic Party.”

Right off the bat, on page one, we have stories bringing readers up to speed both on the presidential contest between our pro-life President Donald Trump and pro-abortion former Vice President Joe Biden. As you would expect, with less than 2 ½ months to go before the General Election, we provide many stories contrasting President Trump and Mr. Biden. For example, see pages 2, 6, 10, and 20. 

Also on page one is and an important update on the competitive Senate seats written by NRL Political Director Karen Cross.

After 40+ years, we, of course, expect every pro-life law to be challenged by Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and/or the Center for Reproductive Rights. But we have good news about recent court decisions—very good news, in fact, particularly with regard to banning the dismemberment of living unborn children. See especially pages 2, 9, and 34.

Of course no issue of NRL News would be complete without stories about the unborn baby’s most lethal nemesis, Planned Parenthood. As you’ve read in numerous posts in NRL News Today, PPFA is in the midst of tremendous internal strife. Its largest affiliate (Planned Parenthood of Great New York) cut ties with PPFA founder Margaret Sanger  “because of her ‘harmful connections to the eugenics movement,’” as the New York Times put it. 

This is on top of the recent ouster of that same affiliate’s CEO over charges of abusive behavior, racism, and financial mismanagement. Ironically, the same affiliate which that CEO had left just a couple of years back is itself in the midst of cutbacks and staff disgruntlement.

There is much more in the August digital edition of National Right to Life News, including  important stories about reaching out to grieving post-abortion women. See pages 17 and 24.

Please be sure to pass this edition of the “pro-life newspaper of record” along to your friends and family. I eagerly await any responses you may have to the content.
