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"
By Dave Andrusko “God sometimes does His work with gentle drizzle, not storms. Drip. Drip. Drip.” — John Newton, from the film, “Amazing Grace.” Newton, at one time a slave trader, penned that great hymn following his conversion. William Wilberforce was born in 1759 in Yorkshire, England. Unfortunately, Wilberforce is not known today nearly as …Continue reading "The “smell of death,” the shock of recognition, and the legacy of William Wilberforce"
By Right to Life of Michigan News Gone are the days of “safe, legal and rare.” Lately, we see abortion supporters firmly embracing abortion-on-demand publicly. Pro-abortion legislators are looking to protect Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton by codifying abortion through all nine months of pregnancy in state law. Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia …Continue reading "Ignoring Euphemisms for Late-Term Abortions"
By Dave Andrusko I didn’t know until this week that Pastor Carl Lentz, the charismatic pastor of Hillsong New York City, had posted an Instagram harshly criticizing New York’s radical Reproductive Health Act (RHA). He wrote, “I spent hours talking to lawyers and people who hold opposing views on this issue. Although it is layered …Continue reading "Two steps forward and…."
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. I spend more time on the Internet than I care to admit. But the beauty of the “Web” is that stories circulate pretty much indefinitely. Periodically people see posts that you’ve written before, sometimes a long time ago. When they take the time to write to express their gratitude, it’s …Continue reading "“How come you didn’t love me enough?” post-aborted woman imagines her aborted child asking"
By Dave Andrusko The first time you watch pro-abortion Va. State Del. Kathy Tran matter of factly acknowledge that her (now defeated) “Repeal Act” would allow abortion “through the third trimester, the third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks,” you’re left dumbfounded. You say to yourself, “I couldn’t really have heard this. …Continue reading "The mind of the abortion absolutist on full display"
By Sarah Terzo A post-abortion woman named “Leena” tells the following story: “I’m now 21 years old, and I had my abortion 2 months ago… I was about six weeks pregnant.

By Dave Andrusko Kudos to Sen. Ben Sasse, sponsor of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, and Meghan McCain, a co-host of “The View,” for a terrific op-ed that appeared in the Wall Street Journal. Pro-abortion Democrats, of course, would insist the headline goes too far. But “America’s Extremist Abortion Industry; Why the party of …Continue reading "A missed opportunity to protect the most vulnerable among us"
By Sonny Joy Nelson As if the abortion industry wasn’t misleading enough, along comes #GramTheVan—a campaign started by pro-abortion advocates this January in an effort to “expose” pregnancy help organizations for showing women an ultrasound of their baby. From Pittsburgh City Paper: Launched as part of a national campaign organized by Lady Parts Justice League, …Continue reading "Abortion Activists Declare Ultrasound Mobile Units “Creepy”"
By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation When I was a child, my mother filled our family life with celebrations. Each holiday included festive decorations, special desserts, and holiday-themed dinnerware. From Valentine’s Day to St. Patrick’s Day to the 4th of July, each holiday was a cause for reverie and remembrance. But my …Continue reading "An insult to mothers around the nation—the Abortion Provider Appreciation Day"
By Dave Andrusko As NRL News Today has documented in post after post, the onslaught of radical, abortion-on-demand (and beyond) legislation began January 22, 2019. That was the day when pro-abortion New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law the so-called “Reproductive Health Act.” We’re told, “Riotous cheers” erupted from the gallery and from pro-abortion …Continue reading "New York’s radical “Reproductive Health Act”: What pro-lifers need to know"
