By Dave Andrusko It’s only a Facebook page (as far as I can tell) named, “Only for Nurses.” But I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if I share it with you. I don’t recall who/what brought me to the computer-generated video that ran under the headline “Amazing Must Watch… And share.” And I’m not entirely sure …Continue reading "“Odysee” (“Voyage”) is a must watch video"
By Dave Andrusko The following appeared on a prominent pro-abortion website, Rhealitycheck.org.  The irony is that “The Day I Learned Aborted Fetuses Aren’t People” bears no relationship to [rh]reality. None, at least not the reality that 99% of us occupy. You may find an occasional syllable in Amy Littlefield’s piece that tangentially bumps into …Continue reading "The pro-abortion at work: Reducing unborn babies to medical waste"
By Matthew Wagner, Education Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation There has been a lot of talk recently of politicians like Vice-Presidential candidate Tim Kaine who claim to be “personally pro-life.” While they say they do not support abortion personally, mainly because of their faith, they refuse to allow their faith to impact their public policy position. …Continue reading "“Personally pro-life” should be fighting to protect all life"
By Dave Andrusko All these years, through all of the fetal development presentations I’ve witnessed, read, watched, or presented, the accepted beginning point for a baby’s first heartbeat was around day 21. Now a new study published in eLife, a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal, concludes a baby’s first heartbeat is at 16 days. Our …Continue reading "Baby’s first heartbeat is at 16 days, not 21 days, British research finds"
By Kathy Ostrowski, Kansans for Life Legislative Director Movie animators take great care to find just the right voices to “match” their painstakingly-drawn characters. Kansans for Life similarly took great care to cast just the right voice for our new radio spots in which an unborn child “talks” about life in the womb. This summer, …Continue reading "Kansas new pro-life radio spots personalize the unborn"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. My family and I will be on vacation through September 6. 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 over the last five months. This first ran July …Continue reading "Jean Garton tells 2016 NRL Prayer Breakfast, “Where there is life, There is Hope”"
By Dave Andrusko Over the weekend I watched a Netflix original film, “Tallulah,” starring Ellen Page, which had just been released at the end of July. The movie was recommended to me by a friend who had been steered in the film’s direction by a pro-life reviewer who noted that Page is vocally pro-abortion but …Continue reading "The shock of recognition reveals the ugliness of abortion"
The Associated Press carried an article Tuesday about 119 Democrats in the U.S. House who are sponsoring legislation to eliminate the Hyde Amendment. According to the article, no Republicans have signed on as co-sponsors. The Hyde Amendment is a policy in force for the past 40 years that says no taxpayer dollars can be used …Continue reading "What You Can Do Right Now to Help the Unborn!"
The Democratic convention could be called a war council. A war on unborn babies, that is. Democrats have long favored abortion on demand, forced taxpayer funding of abortion, and support for groups like Planned Parenthood that make money killing the unborn. But this year’s platform is an open declaration of war on the lives of …Continue reading "If you thought it was bad before"
By Dave Andrusko On its webpage The BBC offers some absolutely amazing examples of science developed with laypeople in mind. But replete with spectacular graphics, its series on “Inside the Human Body” may be the most fascinating of all. Although it first appeared over four years ago, it wasn’t until later that most of us …Continue reading "Amazing Computer Animation Shows In Utero Development of Human Face"
By Paul Stark Sometimes pro-choice advocates say that pro-lifers care only about the unborn (i.e., the human fetus or embryo) rather than “actual living, breathing human beings” (or variations on that phrase). Of course, pro-lifers do care about already-born human beings, and to suggest otherwise is an indefensible slander (and an ad hominem attack irrelevant …Continue reading "The unborn is not ‘living and breathing’?"
