Guttmacher laments that pro-life policies grow “like a steady drumbeat getting louder each year.”

By Dave Andrusko Guttmacher, the in-house think tank for the Abortion Industry and its media/academic enablers, can still be read profitably by pro-lifers. Their summaries—aka the number of abortions, the abortion rate, and the abortion ratio—are far better than the CDCs for the simple reason that Guttmacher aggressively reaches out to abortion “providers” rather than …

Pro-abortion double speak: “Reproductive freedom”

By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Among the more curious terms advocates for legal abortion use to justify their position is “reproductive freedom.” The phrase certainly has a ring to it—but that’s because it seems life affirming. “Freedom” is such an important word in the American lexicon, connotations that extend all the …

Hold the presses. Even the NY Times grasps how out of touch pro-abortionists are with the public

By Dave Andrusko When many vectors are all pointing in the same direction, every so often our benighted opposition—or, better put, its media enablers—will eventually confront the Abortion Industry’s built-in weaknesses and shortsighted behavior. I write that as an introduction to a fascinating piece that just ran in the New York Times under the headline …

Understanding pro-abortion apologetics 1001

By Dave Andrusko Pro-abortionists defend the destruction of unborn children—early in pregnancy or at the end of pregnancy, makes no difference– in season and out. Thus there is no piece of pro-life legislation that they won’t attack. It’s what they do. It’s who they are. Nonetheless, if you really want to get their dander up, …
