  • American Life League’s Judie Brown says that in our society, Granny might be better protected if she were an animal instead of a human:

    It becomes clearer every day that if Granny were not a human being, her chances of being protected from evil acts designed to take her life would be far better….

    So we have to ask how it is that the chimpanzees Hercules and Leo will have their day in court, but Granny can feel free to either exit on her own terms or wait for a doctor or nurse to authorize her death because she signed a form allowing others to make life and death decisions for her. Human beings are expendable; chimpanzees are not? Something is incredibly wrong with this picture.

What the heck just happened with the trafficking bill? We won, that’s what happened.

human+trafficking+1280On January 13, Republican Senator John Cornyn introduced the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015, legislation that would “create a federal fund for victims’ services and law enforcement tools financed by fines levied on convicted traffickers,” as U.S. News & World Report succinctly described it.

Honest liberal: Roe v Wade abortion decision “hardly a secure footing”

Roe_v_Wade_Bad_Law abortionI’ve written before that it isn’t only pro-life scholars who believe the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion was fundamentally flawed: Honest abortion proponents agree.

In a June 17 Truth-out.org article, pro-choice sociologist Salvatore Babones writes:

Abortion biz CEO: Hard to find good help in Texas

by Kelli I can’t find anyone to deliver water or resurface the parking lot, because they’re against abortion. I can’t get someone to fix a leak in the roof. ~ Amy Hagstrom Miller (pictured right), CEO of abortion facility Whole Woman’s Health in Texas, lamenting the widespread closing of abortion clinics in the state, where […]

  • ProWomanProLife showcases an article about the death of a young woman who used the NuvaRing contraceptive. Her lawyer now fights for justice against the manufacturer, which touts its product as being easy — but buried in the fine print of thousands of pages sent to the FDA are the results of 500 studies which included blood clots and death.

March for Life expands direction

The-March650uphill-640x285 (1)

With attendance estimated to range between 200,000 to 500,000, the March for Life is the largest annual civil rights event in the world.

NellieatpodiumFor 40 years, founder Nellie Gray, pictured right, dedicated herself to the March for Life. “The last call she made before she died was about the March,” new M4L president Jeanne Monahan told me in an interview. Jeanne was appointed to her position after Nellie passed away in August 2012.

Jeanne and her team are now exploring ways to expand on Nellie’s vision and to capitalize on the innate power M4L holds. With advances online, in texting, and social media, I’ve hoped for the day when M4L would tap into the strength of its vast yearly crowd of mostly young people to promote the sanctity of life year-round in a greater capacity. Jeanne agrees. “We want to make March for Life a year-round thing,” she quipped.

  • A Pennsylvania man named Ruben Velazquez has pleaded guilty to killing his girlfriend and unborn child. He faces two terms of 5 to 40 years.
  • A woman who believes proposed legislation in North Dakota would prevent her from getting in vitro fertilization has allegedly threatened the life of a state lawmaker. The legislation appears to attempt to limit the number of embryos created in an IVF cycle to the number that will be implanted:

    Richland County State’s Attorney Ron McBeth on Friday charged Nicolette Jean Knudson with threatening a public servant, a class C Felony punishable upon conviction with up to five years in jail, $5,000 or both.

    Court records obtained by Forum Communications show authorities allege Knudson called Sen. Margaret Sitte, R-Bismarck, at 3 a.m. Feb. 27 and threatened to kill Sitte if she interfered with her attempts to get pregnant via in vitro fertilization.
