Patience and Perseverance Key to Pulling Down Strongholds

If you had surveyed the public a decade ago and asked whether they believed Roe v. Wade would be overturned, a majority would have emphatically said, “No.” Even to the most optimistic person, this seemed far-fetched as a possibility. But in 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned this stronghold of darkness called Roe v. Wade.

Saving Lives with Every Sip

Starbucks is, most likely, the most popular coffee chain in America today. Starbucks has become popular not only for its coffee shops, but also for its coffee gear (like mugs) and affordable roasts you can purchase at many local grocery stores.

Celebrate June as Pro-Life, Pro-Children Month

On June 24, 2022, the United States Supreme Court issued its opinion in the case of Dobbs vs Jackson Women’s “Health” Organization. The case moved the issue of abortion back into the States... Regardless of the state’s position, the Declaration of Independence made it clear that no legislative power exists that can deny the innocent the right to life as guaranteed by God, not man.

IVF Companies Depend on Abortion

The decision striking down Roe v. Wade has led to shrill outcries by providers of in vitro fertilization & surrogacy. Both are lucrative, high-growth commercial industries enjoying increasing demand, thanks in part to rising infertility & late pregnancy among folk in income brackets able to pay for these services. Many of those involved in this industry are alarmed that their “market growth” & profitability are threatened by abortion restrictions & are willing to publicly say so.

The Frightening Deterioration of Professional Medical Ethics

When I went to nursing school in 1967, abortion was illegal in the U.S. and so-called “back alley” abortions were universally condemned.

The American Medical Association was established in 1847 and the “AMA was keen to be taken seriously as a gatekeeper of the medical profession, and abortion services made midwives and other irregular practitioners—so-called quacks—an easy target.”

Abortion Disempowers Women

Accessible abortion gives women power, or so they say. As they put it, a baby on the way potentially jeopardizes a woman's professional career or even her social life. In short, if women aren't able to decide when to—excuse the euphemism—"terminate their pregnancies," then they are necessarily reduced to second-class citizens who cannot control their future.

How Roe v. Wade Poisoned the Abortion Debate for Fifty Years

Recently, we celebrated one year in a post-Roe America. As we acknowledge this important milestone, it’s worthwhile to look at how a decision handed down by a U.S. Supreme Court Justice still shapes the way our nation thinks about the humanity and rights of the pre-born after five decades — especially since a closer examination of the standard the Court offered reveals it to be capricious and arbitrary at best.

Mary Miller: Advocate for the Unborn

Children don’t exist in the mind of the radical Left...Every one of these is an example of forcing concepts, causes, and irreversible, life-altering decisions upon minds and bodies that are too young to correctly handle, process, or act on them. But since most of the Left believes children are simply miniature adults, this isn’t a problem for them. As a result of this tragic lie, in our nation, childhood gets shorter and shorter with every passing year, with innocence no longer considered a gift to be protected or a value worth upholding.

A Hopeful Resolution for Life In Congress

In the midst of so much bad news about our disintegrating culture nowadays, sometimes there is a bright light that appears to cheer us up. This is potentially one of those moments. U.S. Representative Doug Lamborn (R-CO) has introduced a "Life Resolution" declaring that children in the womb are living people who are protected by the 14th Amendment.

Abortion and States’ Rights

On May 2, the town of Danville, Illinois became what some have called a "sanctuary city for the unborn." After Planned Parenthood staff announced plans to open an abortion clinic in the town, the city council reacted by narrowly passing an ordinance (8-7), citing a section of federal law that forbids the mailing of abortion paraphernalia.

As Nearby States Protect Baby Lives, Abortion Explodes in Illinois

With more and more states in the region and beyond moving to protect the lives of unborn babies or at least restrict the mass killing, abortionists in Illinois are busier than ever, according to the abortion industry in the state and news reports about the gruesome phenomenon.

Expanding Abortion by All Possible Means

By definition, obstetric and other perinatal care providers always have two patients: a mother and her unborn baby. Both parties are considered equal in value and worthy of the full attention and effort of the provider, and in no case are they viewed as set against one another... But as the pro-abortion lobby in Illinois has grown bolder and more desperate, especially considering last year’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, there is now an expectation that a growing number of perinatal healthcare providers should be permitted to destroy the very lives they have been trained to guard.

Bolton.”) Here are some comments from some pro-life leaders on the fallout from 50 years of “Roe.”
