By Dave Andrusko I’d like to end this week’s edition of National Right to Life News Today with something that I’d written about a long time ago but which I happened to stumble across this morning. It was in response to a correspondence that had been sent to National Right to Life. It was posed ostensibly as …Continue reading "Can a soft answer really turn away wrath?"
By Dave Andrusko All this week and, for that matter, the last few weeks, we’ve been following the decline—precipitous decline in some cases —in public support for pro-abortion President Joe Biden. Overall his approval numbers hover around 40% with Gallup’s Megans Brenan writing that “President Joe Biden’s job approval rating remains at 37%, tying his …Continue reading "Polls say that President Biden is losing support at a faster clip among people of color than any other demographic"
By Dave Andrusko As you might expect, I frequently re-read essays and speeches as well as the Congressional Record. My reading list most assuredly includes speeches delivered at the annual NRL Convention which are often masterful. One example, which I happened to re-read last week, was Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton’s speech at the 2021 Banquet which closed …Continue reading "We all have a God-given right to life: The unassailable truth to which generations of brave reformers have rallied as they battled against the Culture of Death"
By Dave Andrusko For the last post of the day, I’ll briefly look at Gallup’s latest numbers on pro-abortion President Joe Biden. The headline to Gallup’s Nov. 1-21 survey is “Poor Marks for Biden: Middle East, Economy, Foreign Affairs.” The headline for the New York Post’s take on that poll is “Biden falls to record-low 27% approval …Continue reading "Biden’s support among Independents drops to record-low 37%"
By Dave Andrusko Frankly, I prefer when a news story is going to swim in pro-abortion advocacy, it leads with an example of this bias rather than a perfunctory, pseudo-balanced sentence or two at the beginning. Writing for Stateline, Anna Claire Vollers cuts right to the chase: Anti-abortion organizations are pushing state lawmakers to promote a controversial …Continue reading "Another failed hatchet job on Abortion Pill Reversal"
By Dave Andrusko This Saturday, December 2, I will ring the bell for the Salvation Army and take my first and only pass at Christmas shopping. All our children are adults now, so the list of presents is considerably different. But I enjoy every second, even if much of it is online. Paul Stark, Communications …Continue reading "Reflections as Christmas approaches: Three things Christmas tells us about human life and dignity"
By Dave Andrusko Well today’s tale of woe for pro-abortion President Joe Biden comes from a number of similar stories topped off by “Why Biden’s Weakness Among Young Voters Should Be Taken Seriously,” written for the New York Times by Nate Cohn. As the Times’s chief political analyst, Cohn’s findings merit our attention. As you would expect, Cohn’s findings …Continue reading "It appeared in the New York Times so it must be true: “Why Biden’s Weakness Among Young Voters Should Be Taken Seriously”"
By Dave Andrusko In his brilliant National Review Online columns, which we repost regularly, Wesley J. Smith helps the reader appreciate that, like a cancer, the growth of support for so-called physician-assisted must be fought 24/7. Led by the likes of Compassion and Choices (the new name for the Hemlock Society), they are relentless. Opponents must be …Continue reading "The devastating impact of Physician-assisted suicide on the medical profession"
By Dave Andrusko Our pastor of almost 20 years retired in May. But we keep in touch by email while he makes his peace with having a lot of free time when just a few months ago he had none! It’s hardly the same thing, I readily admit, but what about women who find themselves …Continue reading "Facing the pressures and fears of being unexpectedly pregnant later in life when you’re sure your family is “complete”"
By Dave Andrusko The Alliance Defending Freedom and Cooper & Kirk, acting on behalf of the state of Idaho, filed an emergency application Monday for a stay pending an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of State of Idaho v. United States of America. “Idaho’s law allows state officials to prosecute or revoke the professional license of doctors who perform abortions unless it …Continue reading "Idaho asks the Supreme Court for a stay of a law forcing emergency room physicians to perform abortions"
By Dave Andrusko The headline to the story merely confirms what we already knew: ‘Biden admin urges Supreme Court to nix mifepristone restrictions.” But the real guts of the story comes immediately, in a photo caption: “Industry representatives have pushed back hard against the appeals court’s restrictions on mifepristone.” Surprise, surprise, those with a gigantic …Continue reading "Maker of and supporters of mifepristone “push hard,” asking the Supreme Court to remove all “restrictions” which are intended to safeguard women"
By Dave Andrusko In a decision handed down November 21, Judge James T. Russell concluded that a proposed ballot initiative that would have embedded abortion in the Nevada constitution is too broad, contains a “misleading description of effect” and has an unfunded mandate. “This is probably the clearest case I have seen that I think there …Continue reading "Nevada judge nixes pro-abortion initiative petition: Nevadans for Reproductive Rights expected to appeal to state Supreme Court"
