By Dave Andrusko I’d like to end this week’s edition of National Right to Life News Today with something that I’d written about a long time ago but which I happened to stumble across this morning. It was in response to a correspondence that had been sent to National Right to Life. It was posed ostensibly as …Continue reading "Can a soft answer really turn away wrath?"
By Dave Andrusko As you might expect, I frequently re-read essays and speeches as well as the Congressional Record. My reading list most assuredly includes speeches delivered at the annual NRL Convention which are often masterful. One example, which I happened to re-read last week, was Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton’s speech at the 2021 Banquet which closed …Continue reading "We all have a God-given right to life: The unassailable truth to which generations of brave reformers have rallied as they battled against the Culture of Death"
By Kim Schwartz, Texas Right to Life As early as five years old, Ainsley had a passion for helping pregnant women and newborn babies in her town.

By Dave Andrusko When doctors give expectant parents terrible news, it takes great courage not to give in to counsel to abort. Such news—that “one of her babies had a rare brain condition and an abnormality with her esophagus”– was given to Marie Stockdale who was carrying twin girls. “After receiving the news of one …Continue reading "Determined “to give her a chance to fight,” mother turns down advice to abort"
By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative/PAC Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation With the barrage of bad news which bombards us each day, it can be difficult to peer into the darkness and see the silver lining. But the fact is, the pro-life movement is filled with silver linings. This Thanksgiving, I am grateful for so many things: …Continue reading "This Thanksgiving I am grateful for……"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Over the years we have posted many messages to commemorate this very special holiday. However this one remains one of my favorites because it speaks to all Americans in a particularly powerful way and especially now.

By Dave Andrusko I have had the privilege of sharing a workshop at the National Right to Life Convention with two other people who are among the absolutely best pro-life communicators. In a sense what the three of us offer will resemble music you hear on Sirius FX’s “Cover Channel.” That is, our remarks will be …Continue reading "How do we blend appeals to the heart and to the mind to persuade the undecided to join us in defending unborn children?"
Editor’s note. This fine story was written a few years back for Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, National Right to Life’s state affiliate. It remains very powerful. President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving an official national holiday on Oct. 3, 1863. In the midst of the horror of the Civil War, precipitated largely by the great evil …Continue reading "Why pro-lifers should be thankful"
By Jacki Ragan, Director, State Organizational Development Department Do you ever stop to think about what it really means to be pro-life? It is something worth doing occasionally.

By Susanne Maynes When my children were young and I was homeschooling them, I faced an ongoing battle with frequent, excessive fatigue.

I remember one day when I planned to do a kitchen math …Continue reading "How to experience a joyful Thanksgiving despite ministry challenges"
By Bonnie Finnerty There we were, trekking to the beach, drawn to the promise of new life. We were to meet up with locals trained in protecting loggerhead turtles, a species officially labeled as “vulnerable.” Mama turtle had buried her 100+ eggs about 60 days previously, using back fins to methodically sculpt a deep hole …Continue reading "Save the Baby Humans, Too!"
