For the 11th consecutive year, a Nativity scene is on display in the Illinois Capitol Rotunda in Springfield. It has detractors. And the spirit of Christmas could be dampened by an anti-life, anti-family agenda that may ring in the new...
Illinois Raking in Abortion From Other States
By Charlie Butts   |   12.10.18
While the United States saw a drop in the abortion rate in the last reporting period, Illinois registered an increase -- and one pro-life leader in Chicago believes it could go even higher.
Planned Parenthood could soon be your next door neighbor. Former Governor Rauner and Democrats in the General Assembly have paved the way for the abortion giant’s expansion in Illinois....
Social Justice Warriors and Their Anti-Life Work
By Laurie Higgins   |   12.01.18
Do you want to know what motivates and animates our “Social Justice Warriors”? Well, I know you know it’s not really justice—one of the buzzwords often blathered by our warriors—because justice depends on absolute standards by which to determine the...

By Charlie Butts   |   11.12.18

The Problems with Assisted Suicide
By David E. Smith   |   11.08.18
In an excerpt from a panel discussion, Ryan T. Anderson, PhD., author and the William E. Simon Senior Research Fellow in American Principles & Public Policy at The Heritage Foundation, discusses four arguments against physician-assisted suicide. A strong pro-life stance must encompass not only the value of life in the womb, but also the value of life at every point from birth to God-appointed death.
The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy
Forty years ago, a group of evangelical leaders and scholars took a clear and unapologetic stand on a fundamental tenet of the faith. This month marks the fortieth anniversary of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, which was signed in October of 1978 by more than 200 evangelical leaders, including R.C. Sproul, J.I. Packer, and Francis Schaeffer. The Chicago Statement was not only a landmark document in evangelical history...
No Suicide Discrimination!

When I was asked by my late daughter Marie’s best friend to join her on a family and friends fundraising walk for suicide prevention last Sunday, I hesitated. I was in the process of reading yet another disturbing article about...
The Most Important Movie You’ve Never Heard Of
It's here. "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer" debuts in theaters nationwide on Oct. 12. I do believe this groundbreaking film by indie producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney is the most important movie in America right now — a true-life saga of good vs. evil, deadly medical malpractice, systemic government malfeasance and cultural apathy toward the most vulnerable members of our society. I first reported on this real-life horror story nearly eight years ago, but you've probably not heard or read a word about "Gosnell" in the mainstream press, TV news or online. The conspiracy of silence is the result of both malign neglect and active suppression of inconvenient truths...

Ask President Trump to Veto Pro-Abortion Spending Bill
By David E. Smith   |   09.27.18
We are very sad to report that the U.S. House of Representatives voted last night, by a vote of 361 to 61 (with 6 not voting) to pass a spending bill that includes taxpayer-funding for Planned Parenthood, which is still...
Planned Parenthood is Racist, Classist, and Abelist
According to the Planned Parenthood Glossary of Sexual Health Terms, “Eugenics” is “a racist, classist, and ableist movement to control who should and shouldn’t have children.” Racism, classism, and ableism are all horrible ideas. These ideas say that a human being’s worth is based on their ethnicity, position, or abilities. Eugenics applies those ideas to reproduction, and says that only the “good” people should give birth.
Prepare for the Wrath of the Pro-Abortion Militants
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   09.22.18
I recently tweeted, “Regardless of the charges against Justice Kavanaugh, this much is absolutely clear. The frenzied attempt to try to keep him out of the U.S. Supreme Court is simply a battle for the ‘right’ to abort babies in...
