In her new book, ousted Planned Parenthood President said she was told to say “abortion” at every interview

By Dave Andrusko Sacked Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen has led a charmed life since July 2019 when the PPFA board unceremoniously threw her out after less than a year at the helm of an organization that aborts over 340,000 babies a year. Her face and her byline pop up everywhere as a medical …

NARAL and Joe Biden: two anti-life peas in a pod

By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. This repost of a story that appeared a year ago today in NRL News Today reminds us of how wedded then-candidate, now President Joe Biden is to the Abortion Establishment. They knew who they were getting, a man who pitched whatever minor qualms about abortion overboard to curry favor with …

The amazing pro-life legacy of John Noonan

By Dave Andrusko Judge John Noonan passed away on April 17, 2017. His pro-life impact is close to impossible to exaggerate. But why am I writing about someone who richly described the description of Renaissance man now? Well because pro-abortion author Garry Wills, in falsely arguing (yet again!) that the Catholic Church was late to …

Salvatore Cordileone, Nancy Pelosi’s Archbishop: “Let me repeat: no one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it”

By Dave Andrusko Kudos and thank yous are extended again to San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, the leading Catholic official in pro-abortion Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home district, for calling Pelosi to account. Speaker Pelosi (D-Ca.) “stated her support for repealing the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funding of abortion, ‘because it’s an issue of health …

When reporters worry Democrats are in trouble, they avoid discussing the damage Democrats are doing to themselves by attacking the Hyde Amendment

By Dave Andrusko When you delve into the legislation about or the politics of abortion, you always follows two tracks: what happens in the Congress and in the 50 states. (For our purposes here, we’ll not address the courts which are obviously a huge but separate component.) With regard to Congress, NRL News Today steadfastly …

Surprise! Three major newspaper accounts of pro-life brief filed with the Supreme Court defending Mississippi’s abortion law are fair!

By Dave Andrusko There has been so much hysteria, most of it artificial, about Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act that I fully expected news accounts of the brief filed by Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch to be riddled with the same over-the-top responses. But taking just three (of many) examples, that proved not to be the …

We can learn more than you might first imagine from these pro-abortion books

By Dave Andrusko As it happens I talked this morning to the students participating in the 2021 NRLC Academy, a kind of academic boot camp where over a five week period college age students learn from the talented staff at National Right to Life. After having  discussed the seemingly endless sources of ideas for posts …

The real impact should the Hyde Amendment no longer be included

Be sure to sign the Pro-Life Petition By Dave Andrusko As readers of NRL News Today know all too well, Biden-Harris and  congressional Democrats are determined to subvert the bipartisan accommodation that goes all the back to 1976: the Hyde Amendment. Only a party wholly in thrall to the extremist Abortion Industry would plant their …

Mississippi Attorney General gives sterling defense of state’s “Gestational Age Act” in brief filed with U.S. Supreme Court

By Dave Andrusko For good reason, NRL News Today has written a boatload of stories about Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the challenge to Mississippi’s “Gestational Age Act” which, with some exceptions, bans abortions after the 15th week. Today Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch filed her brief with the Supreme Court of the United States, …

Reliably pro-abortion judge preliminarily enjoins Arkansas pro-life law

By Dave Andrusko Well, that’s a surprise. Planned Parenthood’s/ACLU’s/Center for Reproductive Rights’ go-to judge grants a preliminary injunction against a pro-life Arkansas law. On second thought, that is exactly what you would expect from U.S. District Judge Kristine G. Baker. It doesn’t make any difference what the particular law at issue is. Baker will conclude, …
