After-Birth Abortion: Justifying Infanticide

by Rev. John A. Leies, S.M.

In one of his articles in the respected journal First Things, the late Father Richard John Neuhaus remarked, “The most consequential political event of the past half-century is the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions of 1973.”

These decisions, he wrote, dramatically reconfigured the nation’s cultural and political life. The moral question, he added, was not when human life begins — as the Supreme Court maintained — but at what point human life should be protected by law. Scientists know when human life begins.

Supporting barbaric late-term abortions: why there can be no dissension in the pro-abortion ranks

by Jewels Green

Abortions after 20 weeks are barbaric and gruesome, like something out of a horror movie. Here is a link to a medical drawing of Dilation and Extraction late-term abortion and this is a link to a medical journal articleInduction of Fetal Demise Before Abortion (without illustrations), that describes the process of using a lethal injection–through the uterus and into the fetus–to cause death before induced labor and delivery of a dead baby.

Pro-choice: Why I’m never going back

by Kristen Walker Hatten

I get this a lot, in e-mails and comments:

“Hey ‘Kristen,’ if that’s your REAL name. I read your dumb article because I have nothing better to do than read stuff I hate on the Internet. You’re always talking about how you used to be this big pro-choice liberal because you were uninformed and lost in the darkness or whatever. Well, how do we know you’re not uninformed NOW? How do we know you’re not just brainwashed and in two years you’ll be writing for Jezebel and condemning your dumb pro-life self? Will the real Kristen please stand up?”

She had five abortions, but then she found Jesus: now she’s a pro-life leader

by Christina Martin

Iman Essiet didn’t want to become another negative statistic.  Yet this beautiful African-American woman became pregnant when she was just 16. Iman was living in Brooklyn, New York, being raised by her older sister. Like most young women, she was in search of love.

Deep inside her heart, Iman knew abortion was wrong. She was a professed atheist whose thoughts about abortion didn’t come from a religious background. They had nothing to do with politics either. Iman had just always said she’d never get an abortion, because abortion was murder.  Unfortunately, negative circumstances have a way of driving us to do things we know we shouldn’t.

Abortion and fatherhood — a man’s take

by Brian Fisher

A dear friend of mine recently confessed to me that he was the father of one living daughter and four deceased children.  The four were aborted, three with his consent and one without.  My friend said the pain of those deaths is something he copes with on a daily basis.  “The guilt and pain can be overwhelming,” he said.

Another friend still can’t hold back tears, even after 20 years, when he shares that he took his then-girlfriend to Planned Parenthood to erase the “mistake” they made a few months before their wedding.   Now married for two decades and the parent of four other beautiful children, he recounts how his marriage was difficult and tumultuous for years until they sought counseling.  The root of their conflict and strife?  The abortion.

Debunking the pro-abortion lie so many Christians have swallowed, “we need to reduce the need for abortion”

by Brian Kemper

I was reading an article a few years ago about the Personhood Amendment in Florida and how vehemently opposed Planned Parenthood was to this legislation.  The article was full of ridiculous statements and lies, as is anything that favors or quotes Planned Parenthood.

I found it funny that Planned Parenthood actually helped expose their own lies about birth control by admitting that the Personhood Amendment would outlaw chemical birth control.  If this is true then the pro-life claim that chemical birth control often destroys a human person in the form of a zygote before implantation must also be true.

Mother Teresa: Roe v. Wade ‘has deformed a great nation’

by John Jalsevac

In 1994 Mother Teresa filed an amicus curiae brief before the U.S. Supreme Court in the cases of Loce v. New Jersey and Krail et al. v. New Jersey. In that brief the famous humanitarian and Catholic saint argued on behalf of the unborn in a way that is remarkably poetic and poignant. Not only does she plead for the rights of the unborn, but powerfully points out the various ways that abortion, ushered in by Roe v. Wade, has coarsened the life of the nation, sowing violence and discord. Her brief remains compelling reading.

5 reasons why abortion is the worst social injustice. ever.

by Andy Moore

I guarantee you – were he alive today, the visionary George Washington would be striving with us to end abortion. In fact he’d probably be on the board of Live Action. The following are five of the key reasons why I believe our Nation’s first President would stand with us.

“What Do We Want?: Response To Author Anne Rice’s Open Call To Pro-Life Persons” (By Mary Anne)

“Anti-abortionists, what do you want for America? What is your vision for our country? You post here often and you are welcome. But I cannot fathom what you actually want. Do you want women imprisoned and forced to give birth? Do you want every miscarriage investigated as a potential homicide? Do you want abortion doctors and nurses sent to prison for murder? If you had absolute power, what kind of state would you create? I am asking this sincerely. We see your posts all the time on this page, but I cannot discover what your vision for America truly is. (I hope anti-abortionists on the page will respond sincerely.)”  [Anne Rice]

Doctors ‘should have the right to KILL unwanted or disabled babies at birth as they are not a real person’

By Fiona Macrae 

Doctors should have the right to kill newborn babies because they are disabled, too expensive or simply unwanted by their mothers, an academic with links to Oxford University has claimed.

Francesca Minerva, a philosopher and medical ethicist, argues a young baby is not a real person and so killing it in the first days after birth is little different to aborting it in the womb.

Even a healthy baby could have its life snuffed out if the mother decides she can’t afford to look after it, the article published by the British Medical Journal group states.

The Case Against Abortion: Crisis of Conscience

At current rates, the Guttmacher Institute estimates that close to one-third of American women will have an abortion in their lifetime. For each of these women, there is also the man who impregnated her and the family or friends who may have pressured her to abort. The end result is a huge cross-section of people with a direct and intimate connection to abortion. Almost all of them have a vested interest in rationalizing its necessity–making an objective analysis of the issue almost impossible to come by. For any of them to finally conclude that abortion is immoral and unjust, they must be willing to first condemn themselves.

The Shifting Focus in the Abortion Debate: Does The Humanity of the Unborn Matter Anymore?

by Francis J. Beckwith

Pro-lifers in the United States have always assumed that if they could demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that the fetus is a human person, then it would be only a matter of time before the courts and legislatures would declare nontherapeutic abortion — the willful destruction of a living fetus — unjustified homicide. Thus the pro-life view would be vindicated and nontherapeutic abortion would once again be illegal.

Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation

By Ronald Reagan

Spring, 1983

THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade is a good time for us to pause and reflect. Our nationwide policy of abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy was neither voted for by our people nor enacted by our legislators—not a single state had such unrestricted abortion before the Supreme Court decreed it to be national policy in 1973. But the consequences of this judicial decision are now obvious: since 1973, more than 15 million unborn children have had their lives snuffed out by legalized abortions. That is over ten times the number of Americans lost in all our nation’s wars.

Inhumane Partial Birth Abortion, a Lucrative Racket

By J. C. Willke, MD

After fighting abortion for 30 years I thought I had seen and heard it all, but not so. Here is a new development, a coordinated high-tech industry functioning for the specific purpose of obtaining and selling high-quality fetal organs for research.
