The latest edition of the “pro-life newspaper of record” comes to you just after Congress returned from its Spring recess. With control in the hand of the likes of Sen. Chuck Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pro-abortion mischief –and far worse–will abound.
Page one has the best of times and the worst of times stories. Jennifer Popik, J.D., director of Federal Legislation, fills the details in about the latter in with a story headlined, “Post-Recess Senate to focus on legislation with major pro-abortion implications.” You’ll have an excellent overview of such terribly dishonest pro-abortion legislation as the “For the People Act” and the “Equality Act.”
But the other page one story provides the light to the darkness. Jacki Ragan writes about NRLC 2021—National Right to Life’s 50th Convention—which will take place in Herndon, Virginia, close to Dulles Airport, June 25-26.
For details about the 54 workshops, three General Sessions, a Dinner Theater presentation, a Prayer Breakfast, a closing Banquet, a full-on Teens for Life program, wonderful Exhibitors and most of all, the chance to meet and talk with other pro-lifers, go to www.nrlconvention.com. You can also learn how to register.
Even more than usual, this monthly edition is filled with story after story about pro-life successes in the state legislatures. Our affiliates have really been active in securing laws to protect mothers and their unborn children.
You will for sure want to read about Kentucky’s success at placing a pro-life amendment on the ballot next year to amend the state constitution to ensure that no future abortion-driven court decides all of a sudden there is a right to abortion that no one had seen previously in documents, many of which were written well over a hundred years ago.
Likewise, we have a batch of stories related to the United States Supreme Court. For example, the justices did not rule on a Kentucky law that bars the dismemberment of living unborn children but did agree (contra a lower court) that pro-life Attorney General Daniel Cameron could join in the defense of his state’s law which passed both houses of the legislature by overwhelming margins.
And, of course the April edition of NRL News provides stories of parents resisting dismal prenatal diagnoses to give their children life. For instance, Noah Wall, now nine years old, was born with just 2% of his brain!
Beginning tomorrow, be sure to read the issue in its entirety and pass it along to your pro-life family and friends. This is one issue you truly will want to share.
