What You Need to Know About Medical Abortion and Abortion Reversal
By Nancy Valko   |   04.06.18
[Last] month Governor Butch Otter signed a law making Idaho the fifth state to mandate that women getting a medical (drug-induced) abortion be told that the abortion may possibly be stopped after the first dose if the woman changes her mind about having the abortion.

Why Is a Young Generation Opting for Death Via Suicide?”
By Tami Jackson   |   03.29.18

Aborting Down Syndrome People and the Monster That is Us
By Pat Hickey   |   03.12.18
I have had two children; I was old enough, when I became pregnant, that it made sense to do the testing for Down syndrome. Back then, it was amniocentesis, performed after 15 weeks; now, chorionic villus sampling can provide a...
The First Amendment Is In Far Greater Danger Than The Second
Our nation’s elites are waging war on the American people, wielding the institutions they’ve spent several decades capturing to punish those who disagree with their preferred positions and to deny them the ability to speak publicly, all in an effort to stifle free and open debate.

Love Saves Lives
I’ve attended the March for Life in Washington D.C. every year for the past eight years. Usually the weather is cold, dismal, miserable, and snowy.
