Just hours after Governor Matt Bevin signed Kentucky’s fetal heartbeat bill into law on Friday, a federal judge temporarily blocked it.

In a blow to the pro-life movement, the U.S. Supreme Court has blocked Louisiana’s Unsafe Abortion Protection Act.

While the decision currently blocks the law, […]

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) has signed into law one of the most horrifying abortion bills in the country, legalizing the abortion of unborn babies after the 24-week mark of pregnancy.

Advocates for life flooded into Washington, D.C. on January 18th to take part in a 45-year-old annual tradition and the largest pro-life event of the year: the March for Life.

In a shocking move, Planned Parenthood’s new president, Leana Wen, has finally acknowledged that providing access to abortion is the main mission of the organization.

Since its creation in 2017, the ‘Women’s March’ has evolved into a series of annual events across the country and a movement that enshrines pro-abortion, anti-family, and anti-women policies.

Making a charitable donation in someone’s name is typically a thoughtful thing to do. However, it becomes cruel when the donation is made to further a cause that person opposes. Yet, this is exactly what Planned Parenthood is encouraging people to do for one of our country’s leading political figures this holiday season. In their […]


In a move being applauded by the pro-life community, the Trump administration has halted a government-run study that was using aborted fetal tissue.

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gave the pro-life movement even more to be thankful for this year, releasing a report that shows abortion rates have hit a decade low.
