By Karen Cross Sadly, pro-abortion Democrats have become so brazen on abortion – so zealous – that they no longer hide behind the old euphemism of supporting abortion only in “rare” instances. They finally admit what we’ve known all along – they support abortion without limits until birth. But wait! There’s more! Pro-abortion Democrats are …Continue reading "Hold Democrats accountable for supporting abortion without limits until birth and beyond"
By Dave Andrusko It was a red letter day in South Dakota Wednesday when pro-life governor Kristi Noem approved a package of bills to strengthen the rights of unborn children in the Mount Rushmore State.

By Right to Life of Michigan “Gaslighting” is ugly. Gaslighting is when a person uses manipulative techniques to get another person to question their perception of the truth. On February 25, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow [D-Mi.] voted to filibuster the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The bill she voted against does exactly what the bill …Continue reading "Michigan Senator Stabenow: Stop Misleading Your Constituents about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act!"

Doug Burgum do the right thing, there will be six states that require abortionists to inform women they may be able to save their unborn babies from a chemical abortion.

By Dave Andrusko As anticipated, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has signed House Bill 5 into law. The measure, which bans abortions because of a child’s sex, race, or a disability such as Down syndrome, includes an emergency clause, meaning HB 5 went into effect immediately upon Gov. Bevin signing the bill on Tuesday. HB 5 …Continue reading "Kentucky Gov. signs bill to ban abortions based on sex, race, or disability"

By Katie Franklin Editor’s note. This is excerpted from a post that appeared at Pregnancy Help News. Last week, an unexpected thing happened in the Ohio and New Mexico state senates: Democrats joined their Republican colleagues in taking a stand for pro-life policies. In Ohio, all state senators—Democrats and Republicans alike, pro-choice and pro-life alike—approved …Continue reading "Democrat State Lawmakers Buck Pro-abortion Party in Ohio and New Mexico"
By Dave Andrusko In what was supposed to be a shoo-in turned into an unexpected disaster for pro-abortionists in New Mexico last week. A bill ostensibly confined to repealing an unenforced 1969 law and “codifying Roe” had already easily passed the House, 40-29, and two Senate committees when it went down in flames on Thursday. …Continue reading "Bi-partisan coalition defeats New Mexico abortion bill"
