By Dave Andrusko You’ll never go right, counting on abortion polls from Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI). Pro-life sentiment is habitually underestimated. That important caveat understood, there were some fascinating insights from a story written for the Catholic News Service. Mark Pattison dealt with a PRRI study that compared the results of a survey on …Continue reading "Survey finds Hispanics to be very pro-life and unwilling to vote for pro-abortion candidates"
By Dave Andrusko Often when analyzing what pro-abortionists are saying (which we do a lot at NRL News Today), you have to be very selectively in adding hyperlinks. Once upon a time you didn’t need to be so careful. Nowadays some of the language is, to put it mildly, salty. I mention that because crude …Continue reading "Pro-abortionists befuddled by pro-life persistence"
By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation In his 2018 book, Ship of Fools, cable TV host Tucker Carlson addresses some of the foolish claims of abortion industry backers. For instance, Carlson notes that “None is more rigid than the feminist orthodoxy surrounding abortion.” He points out a telling example: In January of …Continue reading "Tucker Carlson’s “Ship of Fools” shows the true defender of women is the pro-life movement"

By Dave Andrusko General Sessions, even at the pro-life educational event of the year, don’t get much better than “Out of the Darkness of Death, come Hope, Mercy and Grace” which completed the first day of NRLC 2019. There was Ashley Bratcher, star of “Unplanned,” the opinion-changing story of a Planned Parenthood employee of the …Continue reading "“Out of the Darkness of Death, come Hope, Mercy and Grace”"

By Dave Andrusko I am writing this in advance since my wife and I will be on the road heading to NRLC’s annual convention in Charleston, South Carolina. It is my fervent hope that many of you will join the many other pro-lifers who will assemble July 5-6 for the annual pro-life educational event of …Continue reading "Thoughts on Life as we approach the 4th of July"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. A while back the Managing Editor of Jewish Journal asked me to write an opinion piece for them, which I was delighted to do. (I didn’t know until after the op-ed ran, that my opposite number would be Sandra Fluke.) This is what ran. Two days after the Jan. 22, …Continue reading "Diversity in Pro-Life Movement is Richer Than Ever"

By Dave Andrusko As I sat down to write this post, my first thought was to contrast how “pro-choicers” and pro-lifers tell their stories. That’s how we communicate—in bits and pieces, shards and fragments—which we bring together into narratives: stories. But on second thought, I would like to focus on how ordinary pro-lifers like you …Continue reading "The deeply human and humane pro-life message"
By Dave Andrusko (This ran a while back but it remains one of my favorites.) Toward the end of the day I try to make posts both shorter and which come to the point quicker. This discussion is taken from “Big pro-life families are shifting the abortion debate,” written by the Boston Globe’s Kevin White. …Continue reading "Yowza: Sociologists discover pro-lifers have more children than pro-choicers!"
By Paul Stark, Communications Associate, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life Editor’s note. This appeared in the June digital edition of National Right to Life News, “the pro-life newspaper of record.” Please share the contents with your pro-life family and friends. “Religious fundamentalists,” warned U.S. Rep.
