2019 March for Life Floods Washington with Pro-Life Message

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. The 2019 March for Life drew thousands upon thousands of participants. Starting with a rally on the National Mall, the marchers walked from this gathering point to the U.S. Supreme Court building, giving witness to the strength of the pro-life cause along the way. Begun in January of 1974 as a protest movement in response to the Roe v. Wade decision, the first March for Life consisted of a rally,

Voters Approve Pro-Life Constitutional Amendments in Alabama, West Virginia

Voters in Alabama and West Virginia passed strong pro-life amendments to their state constitutions in ballot initiatives on Tuesday. In West Virginia, where Joe Manchin masquerades as a pro-life Democrat and pulled off a narrow victory, voters passed Amendment 1 by a margin of 52 percent to 48 percent. A 1993 state Supreme Court decision effectively mandated taxpayer funding for abortion in West Virginia by striking down a law prohibiting funding of abortion through Medicaid. According to state Delegate Kayla Kessinger, over 35,000 abortions have been paid for by West Virginia taxpayers since then. That ends with Amendment 1, which adds to

Lawmakers Move to Bolster Abortion in Massachusetts

While whispers of a possible Roe v. Wade reversal continue, the Massachusetts lawmakers have decided to ensure that abortions remain legal in the state, regardless of what happens in Washington. A bill was signed by Governor Charlie Baker on Friday that repeals a state ban on abortion that traces its roots back to 1845. Governor Baker is a pro-abortion Republican. “Here in Massachusetts, we will not compromise on a woman’s right to her own decisions,” he stated. The bill that was signed does not just repeal the ban on abortion; it also repeals some older laws that are still on

Democrat Pollster Admits There’s No Gender Divide on Abortion

A common narrative Americans typically get from the media has been that women are vehemently more pro-abortion than men. However, Democrat pollster Celinda Lake has recently come forward to suggest this line of thinking may not be true. Lake, president of Lake Research, spoke with Joe Concha on Hill TV’s “What America’s Thinking” earlier this week, where she stated, “Women are much less likely to be pro-choice.” She went on to explain that women are also more likely to be religious than men, which results in less support for abortion. A 2016 study done by The Marist Poll surveyed almost

States Seek to Bolster Pro-Life Laws Ahead of Possible Roe v. Wade Reversal

This November, both Alabama and West Virginia will vote on proposed state constitutional amendments which stipulate that a right to abortion is not protected at the state level. Although both state legislatures approved the ballot measures last April and May, the two initiatives could have more immediate relevance than expected if Judge Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed and the Supreme Court shifts toward a conservative majority. Since Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement in late June, conservatives and liberals alike have speculated about the likelihood of a potential court reversal of Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case that

Pro-Abortion Activists Spread Ugly Rhetoric as Supreme Court Battle Begins

Often, pro-abortion rhetoric is not inherently violent, but is simply based in a lack of biological understanding and the misconstrual of women’s rights. However, in reaction to the possibility that the next U.S. Supreme Court justice may assist in overturning Roe v. Wade, what abortion supporters are willing to say has grown quite disturbing. Take comedian Michelle Wolf for example, who recently decided to have a ‘salute to abortion’ on her Netflix show, stating, “God bless abortions and God bless America.” “Some people say abortion is ‘killing a baby,’” Wolf went on. “It’s not. It’s stopping a baby from happening. It’s

Is This GOP Senator Right to Consider Roe v. Wade Settled Law?

As U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement last week, one vivid possibility flashed across the minds of pro-lifers throughout the country: the overturning of Roe v. Wade. However, certain GOP members of Congress are not supportive of this possibility, most notably Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine). Collins believes that Roe v. Wade is settled law. “I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v Wade,” she remarked on CNN’s “State of the Union” program. She additionally commented on ABC‘s “This Week”: A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not

Buckle Up: Left in Full Panic Mode after Kennedy’s Retirement Announcement

In the beginning of this first full week of summer, it looked like the big issues leading up to November’s midterm elections were going to be immigration, Obamacare, and North Korea. However, that’s all been thrown out the window now with the bombshell news that Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring for the Supreme Court. Court observers have speculated for several years that one or more justices would retire imminently. They focused most intently on Kennedy, who had reached his eighties and did not appear to have the same ideological motivation to stay on the court as justices like Ruth Bader
