6th and 8th circuits split over laws prohibiting an abortionist from performing an abortion if he knows that the woman’s reason is that she does not want a child with Down syndrome

By Dave Andrusko As we noticed in a prior post today, pro-abortionists are (I believe) genuinely unnerved by passage of what one pro-life legislator called “discrimination-motivated abortions” and pro-abortionists label “trait-selection” laws. Both refer to abortions sought because the baby is the “wrong” sex, ethnicity, or because he/she has a genetic anomaly, most often Down syndrome. …

There are endless possibilities to reorient our culture to one that is truly fully-life affirming

By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation The concept can seem daunting and incredibly overwhelming: How do we go about rebuilding what has been described as a “culture of life” in our nation?

Why does the thought of abortion pill reversal send pro-abortionists off the deep end?

By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. As the last look back for the week at what appeared in NRL News Today a year ago, I don’t think I could find a story that is more current.
