Last night, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers delivered the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union address. LifeNews.com points out some life-affirming comments made by the mother of three:

Like all parents, we have high hopes and dreams for our children, but we also know what it’s like to face challenges. Three days after we gave birth to our son, Cole, we got news no parent expects.

Bikers for Life hammer down for the babies

by Carder Several factors drive this. First, by their nature, bikers tend to be politically conservative…. Second, bikers also tend to be an extremely patriotic group and, today, they are sensing that something is terribly wrong with our country and that, if changes are not made, we will soon be in an irreversible state of […]

  • Michael New reflects on the progress of the pro-life movement in 2013:

    Overall, according to the Guttmacher Institute, 70 state-level pro-life measures were enacted in 2103. This makes 2013 the second most productive year on record in terms of the number of pro-life laws that were passed. Overall, there were more pro-life laws enacted between 2011 and 2013 than in the entire previous decade.

Pro-life video of the day: Supreme Court’s abortion decision was accident of history

People who believe in the right to life may not be welcomed by New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, but their numbers are growing, they are getting younger and more determined,  and they have more reason than ever to believe in the success of their cause.

Perhaps the best summary of what was at stake at the March For Life was made by Fox News’ senior political analyst Brit Hume. See it here and please read the transcript. It’s the kind of crisp editorial writing for which David Brinkley was famous.

In his new book, Clarke D. Forsythe  says that the Roe v. Wade decision was not inevitable,  but was the result of a series of happenstances.  He also believes its expansive scope makes its overturn likely. The author was interviewed for CBN News:

Rick Santorum: Truth doesn’t change, and it’s on the pro-life side

staneksantorumby Kelli

No one would have predicted that 40 yrs after Roe v. Wade, that teenagers and 20 year olds would be more pro-life than the generation that gave us Roe v. Wade. That tells you that truth is a very stubborn thing. Truth doesn’t go away just because people deny it…. And people, while they don’t want to accept it because it doesn’t fit with how they want to live their lives and the “freedom” that they have, they keep running into it, and when they hear it, they’re troubled by it….

Mike Huckabee was right about the Democrat Party’s overactive libido

Here is how NBC’s Kasie Hunt described comments made by former Gov. Mike Huckabee at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting on January 23:

  • The public editor of the New York Times feels the March for Life deserved more than just a photograph.
  • Christopher O. Tollefsen writes in The Public Discourse about Roe:

    The court declined to answer this question: “We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins.” But Justice Blackmun then proceeded to suggest that the reason this question did not need settling was its unsettle-ability. Doctors, philosophers, and theologians have failed to reach consensus; ancient and medieval theorists subscribed to different theories. Thus did Blackmun imply that the answer to this question was private in the following sense: our answer is largely a matter of private opinion, of speculation.

Phenomenal Mother Jones graphic on those “creeping” pro-life laws

Here’s a nice graphic posted at Mother Jones today:

It correlates with Guttmacher’s January 2 report indicating that “more state abortion restrictions were enacted in 2011-2013 than in the entire previous decade”…
