By Paul Stark, Communications Associate, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life In late February, the U.S. Senate tried to pass legislation requiring ordinary medical care for newborn babies who survive abortion—the medical care any other infants born alive at the same age would receive. Abortion advocacy groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL opposed it. Forty-four senators …Continue reading "How opposition to protecting abortion survivors points to growing specter of infanticide"
By Dave Andrusko Over at “One Gosnell Myth that endures”, we talked about how Monday, May 13 was the 6th anniversary of the day the jury found abortionist Kermit Gosnell guilty of three counts of first degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter. The myth I was referring to is the enduring mythunderstanding that …Continue reading "Kermit Gosnell: a precursor to today’s defenders of infanticide"
By Dave Andrusko You can always, always, always tell when you’ve uncovered a truth that anti-life forces desperately want kept hidden. 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. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.). The final vote was 53-44 with all but three Democrats voting to block the bill from receiving the 60 votes …Continue reading "Infanticide: Between a Woman and Her Doctor?"
By Don Feder Editor’s note. This is posted on the webpage of Massachusetts Citizens for Life and is reposted with permission. I gave this address a year ago: We need to keep talking about the savage roots of the abortion mentality. When I was a kid (a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far …Continue reading "Reflections on Abortion & Infanticide from a Jewish Perspective"
By Dave Andrusko On Thursday we reposted what I consider the best analysis yet of the vote for infanticide, by which I mean a vote against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The in-depth look was provided by Paul Stark of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life and ran under the headline, “Here’s exactly how Minnesota …Continue reading "A brilliant critique of the Democrats’ phony defense of infanticide"
By Kirk Walden Recent news events—particularly New York’s passage of a sweeping abortion law which clearly embraces infanticide—are leading many in the Christian community to wonder whether we will ever see the end of abortion. After all, if we can’t hold back infanticide, how can things do anything but get worse? New York’s law, however, …Continue reading "How Early Christians Resisted Infanticide by Loving Their Neighbors"
By Dave Andrusko As we often do the last post of the day I’d like to look at one item (abortion, in this case) through the lens of another (“assisted” suicide). Way back in 2014, you’ll recall Brittany Maynard became the face of “assisted suicide.” It was no accident the assisted suicide movement, led by …Continue reading "Infanticide— “a barbaric step backward to pre-civilized past.”"
By Ed Mechmann Editor’s note. This is excerpted from the “Stepping Out of the Boat” blog Mr. Mechmann writes for the Archdiocese of New York. On Monday, the United States Senate couldn’t muster enough votes to pass a bill banning infanticide. Yes, you read that correctly. A practice that in a civilized society would be …Continue reading "Defending Infanticide is now Pro-Abortion dogma"
Editor’s note. Yesterday we posted excerpts from four pro-life Republican senators who spoke Monday in support of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. S. 130 received 53 votes, but 60 votes were required to move the bill forward (in the jargon, “invoke cloture”). With a meager three exceptions, all Democrats voted against a measure that …Continue reading "“You can either stand with Governor Northam for infanticide, or you can protect the most vulnerable among us”—Sen.

By Wesley J. Smith It’s not that Democrats support infanticide: They just aren’t against it. What other conclusion can one reach when 44 out of 47 Senate Democrats blocked the Senate from voting on a bill requiring that any baby who survives an abortion — in other words, a baby who was born — must …Continue reading "Infanticide Makes a Comeback"
