By Dave Andrusko I grant you no major “mainstream media” outlet, let alone the Washington Post, would ever be honest about abortion, but don’t you think describing a veteran pro-abortion propagandist as a “freelance journalist and commentator on politics, gender and culture” is just a tad disingenuous? That’s the Post’s description of Laura Bassett who …Continue reading "A deliberately distorted explanation of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act"
By Katie Franklin Physician Brent Boles is taking the internet by storm once again with a Facebook post about a pregnant patient whose chemical abortion failed to take the life of not one, but both of her unborn children. Pregnant with twins, the patient didn’t know she was expecting more than one baby until after …Continue reading "Twin Babies Survive Planned Parenthood Chemical Abortion"
By Melissa Ohden Editor’s note. As our NRL News Today readers know, Melissa survived a 1977 saline infusion abortion. She has spoken around the world, testified in Congress, and met President Trump. The following appears on her blog and is reposted with permission. The more the U.S. culture experiences the phenomenon of increasingly aggressive abortion …Continue reading "Survivors’ Stories May Often Be Kept Private, But They Will No Longer Be Silenced"
Editor’s note. This appears on the blog of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life. MCCL is NRLC’s state affiliate. Unborn children targeted for abortion are too young to have a voice. But when a child miraculously survives that abortion, she can grow up to be a voice for all of them. Melissa Ohden’s birth mother underwent …Continue reading "Abortion survivor Melissa Ohden: ‘We’re really in this defining moment’"
By Dave Andrusko For the last post of the day I’d like to take a look at two stories, one attempting to prove that the increase in pro-life self-identification is only an “illusion” and the other a classic case of stacking the deck in favor of refusing to treat babies who survive abortions. What did …Continue reading "Two misleading attempts to minimize prolife swing in public opinion and the horror of non-treatment of born-alive abortion survivors"
By John Jalsevac February 20, 2019 — In 1977, Melissa Ohden’s then-19-year-old mother was forced to abort her baby by her own mother. She underwent a grueling five-day saline abortion. At the end of it, she delivered what doctors expected would be the dead body of her baby. Instead, Melissa was born alive. Astonishingly, however, …Continue reading "Melissa’s birth mother didn’t know she had survived the abortion. Then they met face-to-face"
By Dave Andrusko If we didn’t already have enough incentive to call our U.S. senators about voting in favor of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, what took place in New York and is taking place in Arizona should remind us that Democrats have now moved pass supporting abortion through all 40 weeks of pregnancy …Continue reading "Tell the U.S. Senate: Vote YES on the Born-Alive Bill"
By Dave Andrusko It is, indeed, a sign of the times, an illustration of how abortion on demand has spilled over into an insistence that we do nothing for babies who survive abortions. Back in 2017, NRL News Today wrote about passage of Senate Bill 1367 that required abortionists to use all available means and …Continue reading "Arizona pro-abortionists trying to eliminate all protections for abortion survivors"
WASHINGTON – The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) today thanked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for scheduling a Senate vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311).

By Melissa Ohden Editor’s note. As most of our readers know, in 1977 Melissa survived a saline infusion abortion. She has written many times for NRL News and NRL News Today and appeared numerous times at NRLC’s annual convention. After seeing her on Fox & Friends, I asked her to write about her experience. This …Continue reading "Why we share our stories of surviving abortions"
By Nancy Valko I still remember my shock when nurse Jill Stanek came forward to describe how she discovered a baby with Down syndrome born alive after a late-term abortion who was left in a dirty utility room to die at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois in 1999. She found that these second or …Continue reading "Why Can’t We Protect Babies who Survive Abortion?"
Born weighing just 1 ½ pounds By Dave Andrusko For those Germans with long memories, the “Oldenburg baby” is the earliest and most famous case of a “failed” abortion. Twenty-one years after he was supposed to die from a late-term abortion, Bernhard and Simone Guido’s adopted son Tim passed away suddenly after suffering from a …Continue reading "German man who survived late-term abortion in 1997 passes away"
