Good afternoon! In case you haven’t opened your email inbox yet, when you do you’ll find the latest monthly issue of National Right to Life News. Let me quickly summarize just some of the highlights of the March issue of “the pro-life newspaper of record.”
On page one, you’ll find news of a great pro-life victory. In “Massive Spending Bill Preserves Prolife Protections, including the Hyde Amendment,” Jennifer Popik, J.D., Director of Federal Legislation, writes of how the Senate passed a massive omnibus spending bill which contains long-standing pro-life protections, including the Hyde Amendment. This victory comes in the face of pro-abortion Democrats’ year-long campaign to remove long-established pro-life protections from spending packages. Pro-abortion House Appropriations Chair Rosa DeLauro, (D-Conn.), who was the first chair since 1977 to remove Hyde in the original bill, was very frustrated.
On page six, Karen Cross, NRL’s Political Director, explains how Democrats in unison voted in favor one of the most extreme pro-abortion bills to ever come before the U.S. Senate. The so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act,” which could be more accurately called the “No-Limits-on-Abortion-until-Birth Act,” would have enshrined abortion in federal law and policies, and it would overridden nearly all existing state laws. Fortunately the motion to advance failed but it shined a light on how out of touch Senate Democrats are with the American public on the issue of abortion.
On page seven, Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon, NRL Director of Education & Research explains how and why “Abortions Drop in Texas After Heartbeat Law” was enacted. You’ll also read late in the issue how “Florida legislature sends Gov. DeSantis a bill that would protect unborn babies after 15 weeks.”
As always, there are lots of heartwarming stories such as how “Couple refused abortion and welcomed misdiagnosed ‘miracle baby” (page 18) and “Couple choose life for both twins after doctor offers to abort one” (page 20).
Do dig into the issue. Please let me know what you think. My email is email@example.com.
