A Law Passed In Texas Last Year Has Ended Up Saving 9,200 Lives, ALREADY

| July 25, 2014

…even though some of the regulations have yet to be enacted. Following statewide restrictions partially implemented late last year, Texas has seen a precipitous drop in the rate of abortions performed within its borders. According to a recent Texas Policy Evaluation Project report, the reduction is already noticeable – abortions fell by about 13 percent […]

Tied Up in Our Own Preferences

| July 21, 2014

While the contemporary ability to determine one’s family size is heralded as a mark of Western progress, that freedom carries with it moral and spiritual responsibility. Some branches of Christendom (most notably, the Catholic Church) have well-documented doctrinal positions about issues of reproductive technology and artificial means of birth control, many in the evangelical world […]

10 Things Millennials Won’t Spend Money On

| July 18, 2014

Late marriages, no children — that’s the penchant of the “millennials” demographic. TIME MAGAZINE reports: “Many aren’t planning on having kids. In a 2012 study, fewer than half of millennials (42%) said they planned to have children. That’s down from 78% 20 years ago.” Prudence in planning for the future is wise, but we must […]

Does the Bible Condone Abortion? Clearing Up Misconceptions

| July 17, 2014

Does Exodus 21 teach that the life of an unborn child is unimportant? Tim Chaffey, AiG–U.S., examines the issue. “The Bible Condones Abortion.” Several years ago, those words greeted me when I logged on to a local online discussion board, which often focused on biblical issues. This statement intrigued me since I could not recall anything […]

Pro-Life Teen Assaulted After Standing for Life, His Reaction is Priceless

| July 16, 2014

Standing up for what you believe in isn’t always easy. Sometimes something unexpected happens, and it’s at that moment you will decide whether or not to change course or continue on. This Monday, our team received a phone call from one of our 17 year-old high school leaders in Alabama who faced that moment this weekend. While he was […]

Health economics 101: contraceptives pay for themselves, usually, babies don’t

| July 11, 2014

If anyone thought the controversy over Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate finished with the Supreme Court’s decision it’s time to think again. Over the past months the battle has been framed as conscience rights versus contraceptive rights. Now that conscience has won the first fight on points, a second round could be fought over money. According to […]

Having a Conscience is Illegal in Poland

| July 11, 2014

Editor’s note: Try not to be sick to your stomach over the heartlessness of quoted doctors and prime minister Tusk in this article. A Polish doctor who refused a woman’s request for an abortion procedure because of a “conflict of conscience” with his Roman Catholic beliefs has been fired from the hospital he works at. […]

The Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Hobby Lobby had nothing to do with the rights or wrongs of contraceptives. The morality of abortion and abortifacient drugs was not the issue. Neither was the scientific debate about how emergency contraceptives prevent pregnancy. The Supreme Court came down in support of Hobby Lobby, Conestoga, and Mandel […]

“An Unrelated Gestational Carrier.” The Real Handmaid’s Tale

| July 9, 2014

I would encourage business owners and physicians who are members of these organizations to get involved. Are your dues being used to support the Wild West of industrial reproductive technology? Are you writing checks that hire lobbyists who work in your name to continue this attack on the human rights of women and babies? Demand that your […]

Planned Parenthood CEO’s Husband Also Had a Very Bad Day in Court

| July 9, 2014

Most everyone knows by now the Supreme Court ruled in favor of religious freedom and against the Obama administration on Monday in its Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood decisions. This was a stunning rebuke against not only President Obama but also pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, whose office wrote the rules attempting to force employers with religious convictions to pay for abortion-inducing drugs. The contraception mandate was […]

Why Hobby Lobby is not about women’s health

| July 8, 2014

The Supreme Court voted 5-4 early this week that the closely-held private companies Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties are not required to provide certain forms of contraception to their employees—specifically, those that the companies’ owners believe act as abortifacients. The White House—and media sources—immediately responded to the Court’s ruling by decrying that it “jeopardizes” […]

And Then There Were None

| June 30, 2014

Hi, Ever since I left Planned Parenthood, I have been talking about the abortion quotas that are established inside abortion facilities.  Many abortion supporters refused to believe it, citing that surely Planned Parenthood wants abortion to be safe, legal and RARE.  If they want something to be RARE, they certainly wouldn’t have quotas, right? We […]

The HHS Mandate, Unborn Life, and the Professionals: A Cog in the Political Machine

| June 29, 2014

That is not a scientific finding but a semantic game. Obviously, what raises the moral problem of abortion for Hobby Lobby and so many others is that it can destroy an embryonic member of the human species; even ACOG’s brief admits that is a relevant consideration regarding the copper IUD. But the medical establishment (and […]

Supreme Court unanimously strikes down Massachusetts abortion buffer zone law

| June 27, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Supreme Court has unanimously struck down a Massachusetts law establishing a buffer zone around abortion facilities. The justices’ 9-0 ruling in McCullen v. Coakley reverses the First Circuit Court of Appeals decision upholding the law, which barred sidewalk counselors from setting foot within 35 feet of abortion facilities statewide. Eleanor McCullen – a 77-year-old […]

Is Surrogate Pregnancy Another Form of Human Trafficking?

| June 25, 2014

A recent People magazine story reported on a “paralyzed bride” whose college friend offered to be her pregnancy surrogate. Rachelle Friedman’s neck had been broken at her bachelorette party when one of her bridesmaids playfully pushed her. Fast forward a few years later, and Friedman and her husband Chris Chapman anxiously await the birth of their first […]
