Lots has been happening at the state level recently. On Monday, the California-based pro-life advocates at Live Action will release more undercover footage of abortion “counselors” lying to clients. Michigan Senator Bart Stupak, who led a coalition of pro-life Democrats in the House of Representatives during the health care battle but has been criticized for […]

This came out back in October, but I only just learned about it and feel it’s important enough to share. The key ingredient in several of Neocutis’ anti-aging products is protein from an aborted baby. Neocutis . . . has developed a line of anti-aging products that include an ingredient the company has trademarked as […]
To the surprise of virtually no one, liberal Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who is approaching his 90th birthday, has announced that he plans to retire while Obama is in office. Much like the replacement of Justice Souter with Justice Sotomayor, this probably will not have much impact. Seeing as there’s no way in […]
40 Days for Life is a recurring pro-life campaign that takes place in front of abortion facilities all around the country. Although 40 Days for Life is a strongly religious event, with a focus on “prayer and fasting,” you may recall that they sent SecularProLife.org an email affirming the value of a secular approach and […]
Apologies for not posting yesterday. Here are some quick highlights. (Yes, it’s April Fool’s Day, but I promise all these stories are real.) Duke University Women’s Center refused to allow Duke Students for Life access to space for a presentation on student motherhood, because Center administrators were “uncomfortable” with the pro-life viewpoint. They quickly reversed […]
Gerard Nadal’s post on Chapter Three of Embryo: A Defense of Human Life has been postponed until tomorrow. In the meantime, I was intigued by this 2009 article that a facebook friend shared: “Poll Shows Catholics Support Abortion Funding in Healthcare.” Wow! Those anti-choice religious fanatics have finally come around! But read the actual article, […]
Nothing shocks me anymore.Once again, women’s safety has been sacrificed to the abortion lobby’s higher goal: unfettered access to abortion. Younger physicians have shown less willingness than their older counterparts to participate in abortions, probably because they have grown up with greater knowledge of prenatal development. This has resulted in the “greying” of abortionists. Abortion […]
Jill Stanek posted this on Facebook: Hi all, our 3 mo old grandson Colt has cystic fibrosis. My DIL is participating in a fundraising event for the Cystric Fibrosis Foundation (which does not support human embryo experimentation or fetal tissue research, fyi). If anyone could like to help reach the goal of $500 in contributions, […]
The Susan B. Anthony List has recognized five young women who have displayed strong pro-life leadership. I’m happy to see that there’s a nice balance of secular and religious (both Catholic and Protestant) activism. And I fully agree with the idea that “youth are not the future of the pro-life movement. We are the pro-life […]
The Princeton Tory, Princeton’s center-right student magazine, has a piece about us by Aaron Smargon. You should also read the Tory’s coverage of the March for Life, in which Katie Fletcher discusses the problems that will confront a faith-based pro-life movement.
