By Monica Snyder, Executive Director, Secular Pro-life First Things, a conservative Catholic magazine, recently published “We Are Repaganizing” by Louise Perry. It is an eloquent article exploring possible relationships between abortion, euthanasia, and the decline of Christianity in Western civilization. A friend asked for my thoughts on the piece, which I’ve decided to reprint here: I …Continue reading "Even “pagans” reject infanticide"

By Dave Andrusko Kudos to John Sexton for cutting right to the chase: The Hill [newspaper] has exclusively released another Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, this one on the topic of abortion. The headline of the Hill piece is “Nearly half of Americans say Supreme Court should uphold Roe v. Wade.” That’s accurate but it overlooks the …Continue reading "New poll shows overwhelming opposition to infanticide & majority support to overturn or modify Roe"
By Dave Andrusko Elsewhere today I plan to write about a post that appears on a pro-abortion site that cynically dismisses as “just politics” our concerns over babies aborted because they have Down syndrome. If you read my interpretation of the writer, you’ll see that the only way they can live with their consciences is …Continue reading "Why Democrats must be soft on infanticide"

They will scream to high heaven, mix categories so as to blur the point, and insist that they would never do what they just got through suggesting they would do. Welcome to infanticide by …Continue reading "Another failed effort to hide Democrats’ support for infanticide"
By Dave Andrusko The resemblances are uncanny. I am referring to the Democrats’ response to the need to protect abortion survivors today and what they were saying during the long, long debate over partial-birth abortions (PBA) in the 1990s and early 2000s. We were told incessantly that PBAs didn’t take place. Who would deliver all …Continue reading "Pro-abortion excuses for infanticide have a familiar ring"
By Right to Life of Michigan Editor’s note. This was posted the day after the United States Senate failed to advance the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311), sponsored by Sen.

By Don Feder Editor’s note. This is posted on the webpage of Massachusetts Citizens for Life and is reposted with permission.
