A Movement of Hope and Miracles

  By Micaiah Bilger, Education Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Lifelines Every baby is a miracle. I’ve heard that saying many, many times, but I understand it a lot better now that I’m working in the pro-life movement. Especially when I read stories about babies like Hannah. While Hannah was still in the womb, doctors diagnosed …

If not me, who? If not us, who?

By Dave Andrusko Ellie Saul is a gifted writer, some of whose postings at bound4life.org  she has happily allowed us to reprint.

Message: “drop dead, prolifers.” Hey, that’s okay. Helen M. Alvaré and Meg T. McDonnell no doubt anticipated a hailstorm of withering blowback to their opinion piece in the Washington …

Remember 40 Years of Roe v. Wade by rededicating yourself to the coming year
