After Senate Democrats blocked an anti-human trafficking bill last week because it lacked language that would allow abortions, pro-life groups have come together to condemn the decision and to advocate for anti-trafficking legislation. “In a stunning display of protecting abortion at all costs, the U.S. Senate failed to defend victims — women and little girls — […]


The narrative commonly pushed by Planned Parenthood is that abortions only account for a tiny percentage of the services they provide; typically, the statistic cited is 3 percent. However, a pro-Planned Parenthood op-ed recently published in The New York Times went off script and inadvertently admitted that, regardless of percentages, abortions are central to the […]


The state of Iowa just made headlines with the passage and signing of the “Heartbeat Bill,” a piece of legislation that will ban the majority of abortions within the state. “I understand that not everyone will agree with this decision,” stated Governor Kim Reynolds. “But if death is determined when a heart stops beating, then […]


A bill that seeks to erect a monument dedicated to unborn victims of abortion is currently working its way through the Tennessee state legislature. The bill was passed by the Tennessee Senate and will now make its way to the House. If passed, it would create a monument to be erected on the grounds of […]


An anti-abortion law signed by Vice President Mike Pence while he was still governor of Indiana was struck down as unconstitutional this past Thursday.

For example, the legislation prohibits “a […]


Students from over 200 schools across the country walked out of classes on Wednesday, April 11th in an effort to stand for life and protest the legality of abortion in America.

Whether you are with President Trump or stand opposed, it is an undeniable fact that his actions have established him as one of the most pro-life presidents in recent decades. This was made clear once again during his recent proclamation of April 2018 as National Child Abuse Prevention Month: “Every child is a precious and unique […]


School walkouts have been growing in popularity as a form of protest among high schoolers. However, students have not typically organized such events to protest abortion — until now.

Thousands of people flooded to Washington, D.C., on Saturday to participate in the March for Our Lives. The protest was organized in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., and primarily advocated that the life of children is more important than the ability to own a gun. However, were participants and organizers of […]


The abortion referendum in Ireland has been making headlines for weeks, and will continue to do so until it comes up for a vote in May. Pro-life Americans may have seen the headlines and wondered two things: “What is this vote all about, and should I care?” The answer to, “Should I care?” is a […]


The Washington Post recently published a pro-abortion op-ed with the title “I would’ve aborted a fetus with Down syndrome. Women need that right.” Written by Ruth Marcus, the piece was in response to the passage of a number of recent state laws that bar women from aborting their babies solely because of a diagnosis of […]


The state of Iowa is currently on the brink of a massive pro-life victory as the Iowa House of Representatives takes up the recently passed Senate File 2281, also referred to as The Heartbeat Bill, for consideration.

Merle Hoffman, a prominent New York abortionist, compared pro-life sidewalk counselors to the Taliban while testifying in court earlier this month, referring to their beliefs as comparable to the terror group’s “misogyny and fundamentalism.” Hoffman, dubbed “The Millionaire Abortionist” by a 2011 Forbes article, is the CEO of Choices Women’s Medical Center in New York […]


The American Civil Liberties Union is working on behalf of abortion clinics across the state of Ohio to strike down a new state law before it goes into effect. This law would prevent abortions that are solely based on the diagnosis of Down syndrome. Governor John Kasich signed the law in December, and it is […]


The Right To Life Club at the University of Notre Dame is establishing itself as pro-woman and pro-child in a whole new way. The group has started offering child care on campus for graduate students with children. Daycare services take place once a week and allow students that utilize it to take a break from […]


If you were asked about what abortion is, how would you answer? Pro-lifers around the country would likely answer in unison, “Abortion is murder.” However, an abortion facility in Cleveland recently decided to launch a billboard campaign that gave their alternate version of the truth. “Abortion is sacred.” “Abortion is a blessing.” “Abortion is necessary.” […]


On Sunday, the pro-life movement revealed itself in one of the most unlikely places: The Grammys. Joy Villa, a 26-year-old pro-Trump singer, made headlines at last year’s award show, sporting a Make America Great Again dress. This year, she debuted a white dress with a hand painted rainbow depiction of a baby in its mother’s […]


A Tale of Two Marches

by Kelvey Vander Hart

January 19th and January 20th of 2018 were both significant days in America. On January 19th, pro-lifers swarmed Washington, D.C., to participate in the 45th annual March for Life. A day later, thousands of men and women, primarily pro-abortion, came to D.C. to attend the 2nd annual Women’s March. Although these two marches were only […]


Thousands gathered in Chicago this past Sunday for the city’s ‘March for Life.’ The March for Life Chicago wasn’t simply a rally or a march but a series of events broken up over the weekend. Rose Dinner Chicago was hosted by the group SpeakOut Illinois, and took place on Saturday night at Petterino’s Restaurant. Sunday […]


As its revenue declines, Planned Parenthood is reportedly trying to increase business by moving into a new market: transgender hormones. More women are apparently realizing that Planned Parenthood is not a great source of health care after all, as evidenced by the abortion giant’s 2016-2017 annual report showing decreasing numbers in both abortions and patients […]
