“Advocates of abortion can try to deny that thousands of unborn children who are killed in late abortions feel pain, but they are the ones dabbling in ‘junk science’.” — Carol Tobias, President of National Right to LifeContinue reading "Unborn children feel pain"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. My family and I will be on our vacation through August 27. I will occasionally add new items but for the most part we will repost “the best of the best” — the stories our readers have told us they especially liked. It would be difficult to exaggerate this one. …Continue reading "Va. Delegate Tran, Va. Gov. Northam, and the reality of fetal pain"
By Dave Andrusko Earlier today we posted a critique of the latest aren’t-chemical-abortions-wonderful study ground out by the same litany of pro-abortion academics. But, as we’ve reported over the years, chemical abortions can be dangerous to the mother and are invariably bloody and hugely painful, sometimes almost unbearably so. I will never forget the abortion …Continue reading "Another brutally honest account of the pain and dangers of a “medical abortion” by a woman who had one"

By Sarah Terzo Dr. Paul Ranalli, Professor of Neurology at the University of Toronto, has stated, in reference to the pain felt by premature babies: “The only difference between a child in the womb at this stage or one born and therefore in an incubator, is how they receive oxygen – either through the umbilical …Continue reading "Neurologist: Both preborn and premature babies feel pain"
By Sarah Terzo A pro-choice writer shared the following argument against laws protecting babies from late-term abortions: “We may, as many people do, sympathize with the pain we think the fetus feels, but we must be careful in saying that this sympathy establishes the personness of the fetus. It establishes nothing but our ability to …Continue reading "Pro-Choicer: sympathy for the pain we think unborn babies feel means nothing"
By Paul Stark “With respect to those meanings of ‘human’ that are relevant to the morality of abortion, any fetus is less human than an adult pig.” — A tweet from Richard Dawkins, echoing philosopher Peter Singer, who has made the same comparison. Dawkins is probably the world’s most famous, or infamous, proponent of atheism, …Continue reading "The ability to feel pain and Richard Dawkins"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. While this post ran a couple of years back, it is 100% relevant to the battles we fight today. I had not read or heard about the essay that appeared on the Jewish parenting site Kveller titled, “My Jewish Abortion” when it first ran in May. My first exposure was …Continue reading "The “incredible pain” that followed years after her abortion"
By Dave Andrusko As state legislatures reconvene for the 2017 session, pro-abortion sites are running stories under such headlines as “A Wave of Anti-Abortion Laws is About to Hit This State” [Mother Jones magazine, talking about Missouri] and “The Scariest Abortion Restrictions To Watch For In 2017:How states are chipping away at reproductive rights—right now” …Continue reading "Pro-abortionists lament 2017’s “Scariest abortion restrictions”"
By Dave Andrusko It’s easy to forget that when pro-life legislation passes, it does not take effect until a date sometime in the future (barring successful pro-abortion legal shenanigans). But as Congress comes back into session today and state legislatures approach the opening of their sessions, we’re reminded of the good news that Ohio’s Pain-Capable …Continue reading "It will soon be official: Ohio will become the 15th state to protect pain-capable unborn children"
By Wesley J. Smith Assisted suicide is promoted in the USA with fear mongering about the terminally ill suffering with intractable pain for which nothing other than a lethal overdose will suffice. In actual suicide facilitation, existential issues–such as fears about being a burden or loss of dignity–rather than untreatable pain are the reasons people …Continue reading "“Worse Than Death” Meme Pushes Culture of Death"
By Dave Andrusko “At the moment, incrementalist bills are the real risk Roe faces.” — Molly Redden, Washington Post “There is nothing automatic about Supreme Court reversals, which are not common.
