By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Editor’s note. As part of our series of looking back at what appeared in NRL News Today one year back, I think this post is extremely helpful in understand how the nihilism that is at the heart of legal abortion has extended itself into many other …Continue reading "How Roe paved the way to making the unthinkable commonplace"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. I chose this repost of a story that ran a year ago today because it reminds us of the endlessly creative—and, of course, wholly misleading—ways the Abortion Industry and its media enablers spin the narrative in their favor. The Abortion Industry and its minions in the media never run out …Continue reading "What to do about “The Woes of Roe”? Rebrand!"
By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation The impact of the devastating U.S. Supreme Court decision known as Roe v. Wade ripples through the generations. I have often thought about the impact of Roe on families who lose children to abortion. An entire limb of the family tree is severed, meaning the loss of their children’s children …Continue reading "Roe’s enduring legacy: Three women…three generations…three abortions"
By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation When I began working as a secular journalist, the Associated Press stylebook became my Bible. Although the AP stylebook has many competitors, it remains enormously influential. The AP stylebook prescribes the language that is approved for usage for news stories. I quickly learned that, in my …Continue reading "When Roe v. Wade is overturned, the case for life will have the last word"
“A New Ethic for Medicine and Society” Editor’s note. At a time when pro-abortionists are unabashedly legislating to secure abortion on demand up until birth, it’s difficult to believe that in the early days of abortion “reform,” pro-abortionists insisted their agenda was modest and unassuming. This faux humility was as phony as it was insincere. …Continue reading "Roe v. Wade: Preparing the Way"
By Dave Andrusko Every time there is an impending Supreme Court decision—or a presidential election—the Abortion Industry and its enablers crank up its enormous publicity machine to warn of the impending reversal of a decision that has already cost the lives of more than 61 million unborn babies. Periodically, we take a look back at …Continue reading "The fateful 19 months that culminated in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton"
Editor’s note. This testimony from Christina Bennett, which was reposted exactly one year ago, generated the most “likes” of any story we have ever posted. Ever. On June 4, 2019, the House Judiciary, Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, led by pro-abortion Democrats, had held a hearing on “Threats to Reproductive Rights …Continue reading "The Roe v Wade decision has led to the deaths of over 20 million Black babies"
By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation I once attended a talk where the female attendees were shocked to learn that the total number of abortions in the U.S. at that point was more than 58 million. (Now it is more than 61 million.) Nearly 90,000 abortions occur each year–more than 32,000 in …Continue reading "The more than 61 million victims of Roe v. Wade"
By Dave Andrusko I was so busy putting the finishing touches on the March digital edition of National Right to Life News last week that I neglected to write about something that took place last Friday and about which I think about every year: the 163rd anniversary of the day the Supreme Court handed down its awful Dred Scott v. Sanford decision. …Continue reading "Dred Scott and its uncanny parallels to Roe v. Wade: reflections on an anniversary"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. This first appeared in the Jewish Journal. Two days after the Jan. 22, 1973, Roe v. Wade decision was handed down, the editorial page of The New York Times — pro-abortion then, even more pro-abortion now — announced that the 7-2 decision “could bring to an end the emotional and …Continue reading "Radically out of sync with public opinion, the foundations of Roe are inherently unstable"
By Dave Andrusko Talk about setting the narrative! From the very first news story, the New York Times demonstrated its utter determination to minimize the impact (and reach) of Roe v. Wade and its companion case Doe v. Bolton. (“Doe” explained what “Roe” meant by the “health” exception.) In case we missed the point, the …Continue reading "How in the days after Roe v. Wade was handed down the NYTimes counseled pro-lifers to give up"
By Molly Noble Bull Editor’s note. The anniversary of Roe v. Wade was yesterday. The March for Life takes place tomorrow. Today and tomorrow we will continue to run prior stories that discussed that horrible decision which were particularly well received. The word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in …Continue reading "Today in History, Roe v. Wade"
