Sweet schadenfreude/0 Comments/in Uncategorized /by Kelsey Hazzard
Remember when Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson was the holdout vote for the Senate version of the healthcare reform bill? He opposed it on the basis of its funding for abortion, but when legislators offered a deal to reduce Nebraska’s Medicaid expenses, he conveniently caved. Pro-lifers criticized him harshly, characterizing his switch as a “betrayal.” So, […]

Trouble in Utah/0 Comments/in Uncategorized /by Kelsey Hazzard
Abortion advocates are angry about a bill, recently passed by the Utah state senate, that imposes penalties on people who perform abortions on themselves. (The law does not include abortions performed by physicians, so this is not a challenge to Roe v. Wade.) The criticism centers on the phrase “reckless act,” which they contend includes […]

Earthquake in Chile/0 Comments/in Uncategorized /by Kelsey Hazzard
As you’re probably aware, Chile just experienced a major earthquake. Fortunately, it has not caused nearly as much devestation as last month’s earthquake in Haiti. The Chilean government has not yet requested international aid. Still, we must take this seriously. 147 lives have already been lost, and if we do not act quickly to restore […]
Should we leave God out of pro-life?/2 Comments/in Uncategorized /by Kelsey Hazzard
Bryan Kemper of Stand True: Christ-Centered Pro-Life invited me to answer today’s weekend question on the role of religion in the pro-life movement. Wherever you come out on the substance of the question, this is a great example of pro-lifers working through their differences in a peaceful, respectful way.
Nebraska’s Abortion Pain Prevention Act/0 Comments/in Uncategorized /by Matthew Newman
In Nebraska, State lawmakers are considering a new piece of legislation entitled the Abortion Pain Prevention Act. The bill, if enacted, would be the most stringent in the nation by banning most abortions after 20 weeks of the pregnancy. Why 20 weeks instead of the traditional 24 weeks? After 20 weeks, it’s stated, that the […]
One step forward, one step back/0 Comments/in Uncategorized /by Kelsey Hazzard
Our step forward is in Kenya, which is in the process of approving a new national constitution. The most recent draft includes, and the final version is expected to preserve, the human right to life beginning at conception. Its proponents have stated that this provision will not impact the availability of contraception. The progressive constitution […]

The abortion ad is back, and more dishonest than ever!/2 Comments/in Uncategorized /by Kelsey Hazzard
You may recall that earlier in the week, I was a guest blogger on SuzyB, where I discussed a facebook ad that invited users to “become a fan” of abortion. I asked pro-lifers to pledge a dollar to SecularProLife.org each time they saw the ad. We got a few dollars, and then nothing. The ad […]
