    Pro-life activists and religious leaders are slamming the enactment of a New Jersey bill that will legalize abortion up until the moment of birth.Gov. Phil Murphy, D-N.J., signed the Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act alongside Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver, the leadership of the state’s Senate and Assembly and Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson Thursday. The legislation will “explicitly guarantee, to every individual, the fundamental right to reproductive autonomy, which includes the right to contraception, the right to terminate a pregnancy, and the right to carry a pregnancy to term.”Additionally, the measure will “enable all qualified health care professionals to...

    The abortion lobby isn’t exactly known for being kind or truthful. That’s why we see them labelling something as ghoulish as abortion as “empowerment” and something as empowering as Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRC) as “deceptive.” What’s so bad about providing amazing resources to women in need again? Here are the top three reasons you should love and support pregnancy resource centers: These centers provide many resources free of charge. Unlike Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities who like to fleece women during their hard times, PRCs understand that women in unplanned pregnancies do not need to be worrying about finances....

    Editor's note: This piece was co-authored by Samuel Green.Pastors have helped end many of the gravest tragedies in human history by preaching countercultural truths that transform hearts and inspire action. We are once again at a critical moment in history that demands such bold leadership. Each day in America, thousands of innocent children are intentionally killed before birth. Rather than calling this a “crime,” our nation calls it a “choice.” But that may soon change. Just last month, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the most significant abortion-related case in decades: Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. That case...

    Last week, Wisconsin's Attorney General Josh Kaul shared during with the Associated Press that he would not enforce the state's abortion ban should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade. Whether or not he intended to, Kaul made the argument for Texas lawmakers as to why they felt the need to add in a citizen enforcement provision to the state abortion law that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, at about six weeks. Wisconsin is one of nine states that has an abortion ban from 1849 that became unenforceable once Roe legalized abortion on demand in...

    "I'm so glad it's all women in here." As a family doctor and abortion provider, I hear this all the time. I know how important it is for many of the patients I care for to be seen by someone who shares their experiences. But I am not a woman. I am trans. Getting dressed for every shift, I put on my they/them and he/him pronoun pins. Like many trans folx, I use multiple pronouns. Often these go unseen. People assume my gender based on what they've been taught about which bodies look like a woman and which bodies look...

    Washington -- One of my favorite findings about liberals -- now called progressives -- is that they always go too far. Even when they are pursuing a noble goal, they almost always take it to extremes and end up headed toward disaster. Consider the goal of relieving poverty. It attracts not only the virtue flaunters but also the truly virtuous. The plight of the poor is one of the chief subjects of the Bible, and I would suppose that most of the great religions admonish the faithful to care for the poor. In fact, a substantial portion of the federal...

    The Supreme Court, as this is written, is hearing oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, challenging Mississippi's law banning, with a few exceptions, abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. There's a powerful argument that the Court can't logically uphold this statute, which is less restrictive than most other nations' abortion laws, without overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that overturned all 50 states' abortion laws. What is the likely political effect of such a decision? Democrats backing abortion rights predict a "revolution" of outraged voters ousting anti-abortion Republicans in elections for state legislatures...

    On December 1, I stood outside of the United States Supreme Court 21 weeks pregnant, emceeing a rally in support of Mississippi’s pro-life law at the heart of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case. The law challenges the court to reconsider Roe v. Wade and its companion cases. During oral arguments inside the Court on December 1, the Mississippi Attorney General defended her state’s “Gestational Age Act,” a law aimed at protecting Mississippi children in utero before the age of “viability.” This law — and the Supreme Court case it spurred — is especially personal to me as...

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday heard oral arguments for and against a Mississippi law that would ban abortions after 15 weeks. The arguments -- pro and con -- are familiar, but there is a greater argument to be made for upholding the law and, should a majority of justices decide to do so, overturn Roe v. Wade. That greater argument begins with several questions that may be connected to abortion. They include: Why is there so much looting? Why the indiscriminate destruction of property? Why are there so many shootings in our major cities? Disrespect for and devaluing babies yet...

    Today, Roe v. Wade is championed as a beacon of women’s rights, the foundation of the motto: “my body; my choice,” and the crux used to end an estimated 62 million potential human lives across the country. The landmark case was decided nearly fifty years ago finding a Texas state law banning abortions violated a woman’s privacy right in both seeking and obtaining an abortion. The rights of the fetus, however, were completely ignored in Roe’s ruling. The reasoning found in Roe was, and remains to this day, fatally flawed. Roe v.Wade was decided on the proposition that within the...

    The Supreme Court will hear this week Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. At issue is the law in Mississippi that bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. A decision finding the Mississippi law constitutional will fundamentally change the abortion regime in our country, defined by Roe v. Wade since 1973. Roe said the mother has a right to abort her child as long as that unborn child cannot survive -- is viable -- outside the womb. Generally accepted is 22-24 weeks as the time when viability occurs. Mississippi's abortion law says that the defining issue should not be viability...

    The media has expressed concern that the U.S. Supreme Court may soon reverse its 1973 decision of Roe v. Wade. In the coming weeks, arguments will be heard regarding the Mississippi law that bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The debate will focus on whether Roe will withstand the compelling reasons being offered to the court for its demise. It is uncertain if SCOTUS will take this opportunity to reverse Roe completely. However, most legal commentators are confident that SCOTUS will uphold the Mississippi law, seriously modifying Roe. States would then be free to seriously restrict and even ban...

    One-time notorious abortion doctor and key architect of the abortion movement, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, is speaking from the grave. His message: Embrace life.Over the weekend, author Terry Beatley spoke at a local right-to-life event here in South Florida. Beatley had met with Nathanson in 2009 (about a year before he died), and he gave her a charge to continue spreading the pro-life message. He told her, “teach the strategy of how I deceived America” to accept abortion.Nathanson’s message is most relevant these days, as the U. S. Supreme Court is possibly rethinking its infamous abortion decision from 1973, Roe v....

    "There are rules for most cases, and then there are rules for abortion cases," began a dissent of U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit Judge Amul Thapar in a case last month. "The majority reveals that abortion exceptionalism knows no bounds," he added. Thapar's allusion to the peculiar rules and procedures that characterize modern litigation surrounding the peculiar institution of on-demand abortion is especially apt, as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares for its expedited Nov. 1 hearing in U.S. v. Texas. That case, pertaining to the Lone Star State's recently enacted fetal heartbeat law, has attracted outsize attention....

    Two experts wrote about making an ethical case for abortion earlier this year. I disagreed, in a piece published by Townhall.com. Then, they responded. In April, Salon issued a piece with the headline reading, “Why the case against abortion is weak, ethically speaking.” Nathan Nobis, an associate professor of philosophy at Morehouse College, and Jonathan Dudley, a postdoctoral fellow in molecular genetic pathology at Johns Hopkins Hospital, argued that there’s a moral and ethical case to be made for abortion. “So, is abortion murder?” they asked. “Not unless other widely-accepted medical procedures that end human life are also wrong. But...

    Texas Right to Life says S.B. 8, the state law that prohibits abortion after fetal cardiac activity can be detected, has "saved at least 100 lives PER DAY" since it took effect on Sept. 1. Another calculation suggests the number "could be as high as 132." One reason for the uncertainty is that Texas women who have crossed S.B. 8's legal threshold, which typically happens around six weeks into a pregnancy, can still obtain abortions in other states with less restrictive policies. In that respect, recent experience in Texas offers a preview of what will happen if the Supreme Court...

    Was there a time in living memory when America was more divided? I’m 66, and I certainly can’t remember any time like today. Can you? It seems as if the right and the left are becoming more and more polarized, with less and less people in the center. From woke ideology to race issues to political divides to LGBTQ activism to religious conflicts to cancel culture to immigration, the divisions are deep and broad. But the ultimate dividing line is abortion. On no other issue are the passions so intense. And no other issue has such massive court cases attached...

    This year’s Women’s March has a new name: the “Rally for Abortion Justice.” On Sept. 27, the Washington Post reported that the Women’s March would return to Washington, D.C., this fall “to fight for abortion access.” Organizers are expecting the D.C. event on Saturday, Oct. 2, to attract up to 10,000 people – not counting those attending the 600 sister marches nationwide. The march began in 2017 as a reaction to the election of Donald Trump as president. Now, the focus is on abortion. It’s a theme that promises to divide – rather than unite – women. “Most of the...

    Fifty years ago, a deep and heartfelt chasm was created when the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its Roe v Wade decision. While that divide remains deep, scientific advances over the past five decades have created new understandings, which are impacting public attitudes about abortion today. But the pro-abortion governor and supreme court in Harrisburg seem more interested in scoring political points and forcing taxpayers to fund abortions than in fostering understanding. The more scientists and doctors investigate, the more evidence we find that human life begins at fertilization. We also now know, for example, that an unborn child’s heart...

    Editor's Note: This piece was co-authored by Joy Zavalick.Last Friday afternoon, U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra quietly announced a new set of actions in response to the implementation of Texas’ Heartbeat Act, a pro-life law the U.S. Supreme Court recently allowed to go into effect while further litigation plays out. Today, Speaker Pelosi is forcing a vote on Congresswoman Judy Chu’s (D-Calif.) Women’s Health Protection Act (H.R. 3755). A more accurate name for this bill would be the Abortion on Demand Act, since it seeks to codify Roe v. Wade and supersede state laws, thus preventing...
