Fatuous Floor Debate on Parental Notice of Abortion Act
By Laurie Higgins   |   11.12.21
The euphemistically titled “Youth Health and Safety Act” (HB 370) has passed both the Illinois House and Senate. Leftists who believe it takes a village to strip parents of their natural rights and strip preborn humans of their right to live are close to fulfilling their promise to make Illinois America’s bloodiest killing field.  HB 370 will repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act passed in 1995 that requires parents of minor pregnant girls to be notified at least 48 hours before girls can have their babies killed.
Illinois State Lawmakers Rescind Parental Rights, Conscience Rights
By David E. Smith   |   10.28.21
I know we shouldn't be surprised. We know intuitively and intellectually that the nature of Big Government is tyranny. Yet I was stunned to watch Illinois Democratic State Lawmakers intentionally and aggressively pursued an agenda to diminish the civil rights of its people. Not only did they attack health care conscience rights protections, but they also repealed Illinois' last major abortion regulation which ensured the rights of parents/guardians to be notified when their minor daughter seeks to have an abortion.

Yes, Abortion and Transgenderism are Two Sides of the Same Coin
Just as the abortion movement insists that an unborn child is not a person even though science has proven that life begins at conception, the transgender movement insists that a person’s “true self” can be separate from his or her physical body. In Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Justice Anthony Kennedy infamously stated, “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one's own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life." In that statement, he captures the mindset that is behind both abortion and transgenderism — the idea that each of us has the “right” to define our own concept of existence.
Down Syndrome Awareness Month
By Jenna Smith   |   10.16.21
It may have slipped your notice, but October is Down Syndrome Awareness month.

Down syndrome (DS) is a genetic condition that occurs in one of every seven hundred babies born in the United States (CDC). The medical community, as evidenced from the source above, views it as a disease that makes life not worth living for those affected by it--which explains why so many mothers choose to abort their babies when diagnosed.
The Abortion Lobby’s Sudden Reversal on “DIY” Abortions
Ahead of last weekend’s Women’s March in Washington, D.C., marchers were offered a reminder of what to bring and what not to bring. On the “to bring” list was “Your feminist spirit, bring your defiance to injustice bring your demands for abortion justice.” The “don’t bring” list included weapons and illegal substances, as well as a note reminding abortion activists not to use “coat-hanger imagery” saying, “We do not want to accidentally reinforce the right wing talking points that self-managed abortions are dangerous, scary and harmful.”

Radical Pro-Abortion Bill in Washington D.C.
By David E. Smith   |   09.30.21
Last Friday, by a vote of 218 to 211, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a radical pro-abortion bill that would essentially codify Roe v. Wade. The so-called "Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021" (H.R. 3755) would create an absolute right to abortion in federal law, superseding all state laws. The vote fell along party lines, with only one Democrat—U.S. Representatives Henry Cuellar (D-TX)—voting against the bill.
Illinois Dem’s Bill to Punish Texas for Heartbeat Law
By Laurie Higgins   |   09.20.21
On September 14, State Representative Cassidy, filed a bill in response to the Texas Heartbeat Act. Her bill (HB 4146) is titled the “The Expanding Abortion Services Act.” While this bill addresses pregnancies resulting from “sexual assault” and “domestic abuse,” it goes further. If passed it would make it possible for any man in a consensual sexual relationship—including a marital relationship—that results in an “unintended” pregnancy to be sued civilly...

An Open Letter to Women Say ‘My Body, My Choice’
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   09.04.21
If you are a woman who believes that it is your moral right to have an abortion, you are likely quite angry or frightened over the enactment of the Texas Heartbeat Bill. All the more is the case if you live in Texas. And you likely think that people like me, conservative, male, pro-life Christians who are glad to see the bill enacted, are heartless, controlling, misogynistic monsters.
