Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act


The U.S. House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act by a vote of 237 to 187 on Tuesday afternoon. The bill if passed into law would ban abortions after 20 weeks except to save the life of the mother or in cases of rape and incest. This bill was also passed by the House […]


On Tuesday, after heated debate on the House floor, representatives voted 237 to 189 to pass H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Sponsored by Representative Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) and co-sponsored by 182 of his colleagues, the bill would prohibit abortions after the 20-week mark, the point at which science shows the unborn feel […]


Despite making some “positive progress,” reproductive rights at the state level have suffered many more “ongoing assaults,” according to a report released last week by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. The first, and much shorter, part of the report describes the “progress” which pro-abortion activists have made in state legislatures. The developments mentioned include increased contraceptive […]


Ohio’s Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act officially took effect on Tuesday, placing Ohio among a growing list of states that ban the barbaric practice of late-term abortion. Scientific evidence confirms that unborn babies feel excruciating pain during abortions at 20 weeks (though there is evidence it begins even sooner). At this point, babies are so […]


An international team of researchers based in England have released an incredible video that shows a 20-week-old unborn baby in the womb in stunning high definition. They are calling it the clearest ultrasound ever taken. In the video, the unborn baby moves rapidly, turning her head and taking big stretches in her mom’s belly. The […]


On Tuesday night, history was made. Not only because Donald Trump came through the finish line with the electoral college victory that people never thought he would achieve, but also for the issues that he stood for and won on. One of the most historic aspects of Trump’s campaign has been his stance on life. He has […]


Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence was in Iowa this weekend where he addressed social conservatives at the annual Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition dinner. During his remarks, Pence reiterated his full confidence in Donald Trump and made the case for Trump’s candidacy as a response to the increasing threats to Americans’ fundamental liberties: “For the sake […]


Donald Trump is doing everything he can to make it clear to the pro-life movement: “I’m With You.” This week Trump tapped Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List and a frequent contributor to The Pulse 2016, to head up his pro-life coalition. Politico reports: Dannenfelser will seek to mobilize “national and statewide […]


If there was ever any question about who pro-life voters should support on Election Day, Mike Pence — who has championed pro-life initiatives in Congress and as governor of Indiana — cleared it up over the weekend. At the annual Values Voter Summit on Saturday, Gov. Pence once again demonstrated his deep roots in the pro-life […]


(Editor’s Note: Danny Cannon is fluent in sarcasm.) On Monday, the American electorate received critical information it had long been waiting for this election— at long last, Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) told us who she would be voting for in November. Well, really, she just said who she wouldn’t be voting for, but at least […]


Lately there has been a flurry of interest in the Libertarian ticket of Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, including op-eds suggesting that they are a sensible alternative for pro-life voters disillusioned with both major parties. I couldn’t disagree more. Johnson and Weld are unacceptable for pro-lifers. Period. Johnson has said he supports abortion up until viability, […]


Last night we flexed the political muscle of the pro-life movement when we defeated Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.). For those who don’t remember what happened: In January of last year, Congresswoman Ellmers — a former ally of Susan B. Anthony List and the pro-life movement — led the charge to stop the Pain-Capable Unborn Child […]


Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, recently sat down with The Pulse 2016 to talk pro-life politics, and particularly the controversy that convinced her to work to defeat Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) in next week’s state congressional primary: THE PULSE 2016: So, who’s making you mad this week? MARJORIE DANNENFELSER: Well, Renee […]


Fierce pro-life advocate and two-term South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley signed into law a measure Wednesday afternoon which seeks to ban abortion in the state after the first twenty weeks gestation, except in cases where the life of the mother is threatened. Haley signed the bill after it was passed by a margin of 79-29 […]


Two big news items happened this week that revealed a lot about the pro-life movement’s evolving relationship with Donald Trump: 1.) Donald Trump released a list of 11 pro-life judges as potential Supreme Court nominees. Trump explained why he released the list to Fox News: I have a lot of people that are conservative that really […]


The Pro-Life Case for Donald Trump

by Marjorie Dannenfelser

At long last, the Republicans have a presumptive nominee in Donald Trump. For those of us concerned about the right to life of the unborn, now is a good time to reexamine what we know about Mr. Trump, as well as his most likely opponent, Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump has made very specific pro-life commitments […]


It looks like the Republican candidates were right all along. During a February debate in New Hampshire, Senator Marco Rubio called out the mainstream media for not asking the Democratic candidates about their positions on abortion. Senator Ted Cruz, too, has consistently talked about Secretary Hillary Clinton’s extreme stances on the issue. Two months later, […]


South Dakota just became the 16th state to stop abortion after five months — a point in pregnancy by which unborn children feel pain. State Senator Jenna Haggar, a longtime pro-life leader in the state and a stalwart member of the Susan B. Anthony List’s National Pro-life Women’s Caucus, was a lead author of the […]


As Republican candidates head into South Carolina, they would do well to go on offense on life using Senator Lindsey Graham’s five-month Pain-Capable legislation — instead of hitting the other candidates in the race. Here are five reasons why: 1.) It resonates with women voters. Sixty percent of women in America support legislation limiting abortion […]


This piece was co-authored by Bob Morrison. Is it possible to be pro-life without being pro-woman? The answer to that question may help pro-life Americans sort out the GOP field. After all, nearly all of the Republican candidates have endorsed the two cardinal priorities of the pro-life movement today: supporting a national limit on abortions […]
