Pro-Life Film ’40’ Tackles Most Popular Pro-Abortion Arguments

“40” addresses the key arguments for Roe v. Wade and the pro-abortion movement in America by presenting testimonies of post-abortive women, men and women who survived abortions, and activists for the pro-life cause. Morales says it answers “all the arguments from the pro-abortion side with a myriad of testimonies.”

The film opens and closes with pro-life speaker Yvonne Florczak-Seeman, Morales told CP. “She had five abortions and then fell in love with Jesus Christ,” he explained. According to her booking website, Florczak-Seeman began using drugs and even attempted suicide to dull the post-abortive pain. She is now raising four children and speaking out for the unborn and post-abortive women.

The March for Life: Once We Get Moving

by Stephen Phelan

“Look at all these marchers, and they’re so young! We’re winning!”

“Look at the abortions still occurring, now paid for by hidden surcharges in insurance that most of us are going to have to pay for! We’re not winning, we’re losing!”

“Look at the polls, most people are pro-life now! We’re winning!”

“Analyze the polls. Most people are still ok with abortion in some cases, and they still think that “birth control” actually reduces the number of abortions. We’re losing!”

The Ugly, Unknown Story Behind Roe v. Wade

by Scottie Hughes

It’s not often that I agree with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but she was right for more reasons than she probably realized when she said last year that the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade went “too far, too fast.” Roe protected almost all abortions from the democratic process and led to four decades in which, by even the most conservative estimates, 50 million American babies were aborted and pulled from their mother’s womb.

Is President Obama Delusional?

There probably isn’t a pro-life activist alive who didn’t think what I thought when watching President Obama give his speech about Syria this week. To garner support for his plan to attack that country, Obama implored the American people to view the images of innocent children who had been poisoned to death by their own president. It was clear Obama wanted us to emotionally invest in their tortured deaths:

Abortion’s ‘Invisible Grief’ Surfaces With Nationwide Gravesite Ceremonies


Most people will acknowledge that losing a child is a terrible thing. That’s why it is the focal point of the National Day of Remembrance set for Sept. 14.

This solemn event will memorialize tens of thousands of children buried at gravesites around the nation—a tiny fraction of the 55 million children killed by abortion since it was legalized in 1973. Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League are coordinating this day to heighten awareness that every abortion results in the death of an innocent child, to create an appropriate outlet for both personal and national grief, and to pray for an end to abortion.

Planned Parenthood’s Adoption “Gag Rule:” Abortion Pushed Over Adoption 391 to 1


Concerned about the prospect of taxpayer funded counselors steering women toward abortion, the Reagan Administration issued what its critics called a “gag rule,” prohibiting options counselors under Title X from referring women for abortions. Planned Parenthood and others challenged the rule, claiming that it prevented women from receiving full and unbiased information about all of their options. Although the Supreme Court upheld it in Rust v. Sullivan, the “gag rule” was one of the first to be repealed when President Clinton took office. However, it appears that a “gag rule” has reemerged –  as Planned Parenthood works to steer women toward the one option that is financially beneficial to Planned Parenthood, abortion.

Playing catch with aborted babies: the horrible reality of abortion


Abortion providers see the bodies of aborted babies daily. They deal with the grief and heartache of seeing women through what is almost always a difficult and painful experience. Sometimes the stress of what they are doing comes out in disturbing ways. According to Father Frank Pavone from Priests for Life:

Former workers in the abortion industry have told us stories about playing games of toss with aborted babies in the hallway. Your mind has to invert what is going on: to make it a game, a joke, something positive. It’s the only way to keep from going crazy — and some of them do.


If you thought that it was frightening enough that the federal government was spying on you and had access to your personal information, get ready: Planned Parenthood is about to obtain access to your Social Security number, tax form, bank account, and medical records.

With the advent of ObamaCare, consumers buying health insurance through health care exchanges will be required to speak to “navigators.” “Navigators” are supposed to help consumers find the best coverage and ascertain whether they are eligible for a federal subsidy. Any “navigator” will have access to the federal data hub, which holds information from the Department of Health and Human Services, the IRS, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Defense Department, the Office of Personnel Management, the Veterans Health Administration, and the Peace Corps.

Ending abortion at the heart: States attempt to ban abortion based on fetal heartbeat


Earlier this year, I reported on the Kansas legislature’s attempt to become the third state to pass a fetal heartbeat bill. Ohio is now the newest state joining the battle. As Representative Christina Hagan puts it:

It’s a new general assembly, and we’re ready to start the fire again, and we’re ready for battle for what we believe is most important in this world, and that is life.

Peer-Reviewed Study: Abortion is Not Safer for Women Than Childbirth


How often do you hear a child disposal apologist repeat the talking point that abortion is safer for the mother than childbirth?

It’s never been quite the showstopper they hoped for, since annual pregnancy-related deaths in the United States (650) are less than a thousandth of 1% of the annual number of live births (3,953,590), because it seems like a new abortion mill is being busted for health violations almost every week, and ultimately because it wouldn’t change the fact that abortion’s mortality rate for the baby is virtually 100%.

“Cheap, Government-Funded, and Common:” How Abortion Activists Want Abortions


“Cheap, government-funded, and common.” That’s how The Atlantic’s Emily Matchar, currently living in the People’s Republic of China, described Chinese abortion policy last week in her piece outlining varying abortion laws worldwide.

By contrast, Matchar describes the newly passed law in North Carolina, her home state, as “stunningly restrictive.”

For the unaware, the North Carolina legislature recently passed both the Safe Harbor for Victims of Sex Trafficking bill (SB 683) and the Health and Safety Changes Act (SB 353). The legislation addresses minors who are victims of sex-trafficking, requires abortion facilities to meet increased health and safety standards, and protects the conscience rights of health care workers who object to participating in abortion. The new law also bans sex-selective abortion – lethal sex-discrimination usually carried out against girl children. And yes, from Columbia University to the University of California-San Francisco, there is evidence that sex-selective abortions are happening in the United States.

Planned Parenthood Getting Obamacare Funds Broke Law to Sell Abortion Drugs


One of the four Planned Parenthood abortion business affiliates to get taxpayer funding from Obamacare was accused of breaking state laws to sell abortion drugs in New Hampshire.

As LifeNews reported, three more local affiliates of the Planned Parenthood abortion business are getting hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer funding from the federal government to promote Obamacare. Among the grants listed were $295,604 for Planned Parenthood of Montana; $214,427 for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland; and $145,161 for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.

One of the affiliates has been accused of engaging in a massive Medicaid fraud scheme.

Planned Parenthood Tweets Article Supporting Using Women for Sex


The Planned Parenthood abortion business supports the so-called “BroChoice” campaign and its notion that supporting abortion is a good thing for men to do because it allows them to get out of the responsibility of becoming a parent by pressuring their partner to have an abortion.

The campaign essentially says it’s alright to use women for sex because they can always get an abortion if they get knocked up.

Routine Infanticide: Lila Rose and Live Action Expose the Abortion Industry’s Darkest Secret


By Doug Bean

Kermit Gosnell isn’t an isolated case. The latest undercover investigation by Lila Rose’s pro-life group, Live Action, makes that perfectly and painfully clear.

According to his employees’ testimony, this Philadelphia abortionist delivered hundreds of late-term babies and then killed them by snipping their spinal cords. But months before Gosnell’s trial ended in May with his conviction on three counts of first-degree murder in the brutal deaths of newborn children outside the womb, involuntary manslaughter of a patient, violation of Pennsylvania’s 24-week abortion limit, and hundreds of other crimes, Live Action sent investigators into late-term abortion facilities. This was the organization’s eighth undercover investigation of the abortion industry.
