By Mary DeTurris Poust Editor’s note. Earlier this week we posted a story written by two pro-abortionists in Ireland about how to encourage “critical thinking” in young children about the upcoming abortion referendum.

As deeply committed as I’ve been to the pro-life effort over the years–going on marches …Continue reading "What children can teach us about abortion"
In advance of Irish abortion referendum By Dave Andrusko To say the mainstream press in the Republic of Ireland is pro-abortion is like saying it’s above freezing when the temperature is 100 degrees. True, but it vastly understates the reality. When the the Irish media are not busy making up accusations out of whole cloth, …Continue reading "Advice on how to plant pro-abortion ideas in the minds of little children"
By Dave Andrusko Originally when I first wrote this story, my intention was that it would be a short post. But the more I thought about “My dad’s story: Dream for My Child,” which is also dubbed “My Dad’s A Liar! (A Child’s Future Is Worth Every Sacrifice),” the longer it became. I understand this …Continue reading "“A Child’s future is worth every sacrifice”"

That truth became abundantly clear as I was reading through dozens of “thank you” cards for state lawmakers that had been handmade by students, some as young as the …Continue reading "When we protect unborn babies it “helps make the earth a better place for everyone”"

By Wesley J. Smith The ink is barely dry on Canada’s expansive right to euthanasia and there is already much talk of expanding the killing to new categories–such as children. Now, after more than 600 sick people were put down in Quebec 2016-2017–if we are going to reduce medical ethics to veterinary standards, let’s use …Continue reading "Because there can never be enough euthanasia in Canada…"
By Dave Andrusko Here’s an exercise. What would you expect from a pro-abortion post running in the pro-abortion Huffington Post under the headline, “When The Person Shaming You For Your Abortion Is A Child: How the anti-abortion movement uses children to legitimize its message”? At the risk of being overly cynic, how about a narrative …Continue reading "Why the abortion industry is so defensive about the presence of children"
Editor’s note. As we near Father’s day, all this week we will be posting stories about men and abortion, including in the June digital edition of National Right to Life News which we will publish Wednesday. We’re starting with one that goes way back, one I wrote in 1999. “Maybe we are all so starved …Continue reading "Thoughts from a Dad as Father’s Day approaches"
By Dave Andrusko If there is such as thing as a reverse spoiler alert, this may well qualify. In this post, you will figure out where I am headed long before I get there. Having said that…. Tomorrow, as most everyone knows, will be the 47th Earth Day. The photo you see below comes from …Continue reading "One day out, reflections on Earth Day and unborn children"

They even have taste buds and their …Continue reading "5 amazing things preborn children can do inside the womb"

By Kristi Burton Brown As parents (or kids’ caretakers), we have the opportunity to build pro-life values into them from a young age. Of course, we can talk to them directly about the value of every life, explain things, and answer questions. One day we’ll have to explain exactly what abortion is to them. But, …Continue reading "Simple ideas for communicating the pro-life message to children"
