By Cassy Fiano-Chesser The battle over abortion has clearly left the country divided. Pro-life lawmakers have been passing laws to save lives, while pro-abortion lawmakers have been working to expand abortion as quickly as possible. In some cases, like in California and Maryland, this has even led to bills containing language that many legal experts …Continue reading "WATCH: Abortion advocates express support for infanticide, having abortions ‘100 times’"
By Wesley J. Smith A little while ago I highlighted a shocking Maryland bill that would essentially decriminalize neglecting an infant to death in the “perinatal” period — i.e., through the first 28 days after birth — by preventing investigations and prosecution of such deaths that resulted from “a failure to act.” I was interviewed on several talk-radio …Continue reading "New California bill’s wording appears to allow infanticide by neglect"

By Right to Life UK Editor’s note. This repost of a story that appeared in NRL News Today a year ago is a reminder of how widespread is the attitude that babies who survive abortions do not deserve equal medical treatment. ‘After-birth abortion’—infanticide– for babies with a disability is supported by more than 9 in …Continue reading "94% of Belgian doctors surveyed support ‘after-birth abortion’ for babies with disabilities"
By Dave Andrusko Abortion, by its very nature, is one endless story of brutality, viciousness, and moral myopia. But some atrocities must be remembered in vivid detail, lest we miss how they established a pathway to even greater inhumanity.
