The pro-life movement is united in its goal of electing a pro-life president in 2016.
Advancements in science and medical technology have proven to be great gifts to the pro-life movement time and time again. Doctors are able to routinely deliver premature babies at earlier and earlier stages of development. Innovations in sonogram imaging have provided a window to the womb enabling expectant mothers to see their unborn children face to face. We also have the ability to hear the unborn baby’s tiny heartbeat.
The pro-abortion movement is in a predicament. They are compelled to fight a ban on dismemberment abortions because it challenges their abortion-without-limits ideology. But they know they cannot actually talk about dismemberment abortions. Putting the gruesome reality of unborn babies being torn limb from limb in front of the public would be highly detrimental to their cause.
Not long ago, Americans from both sides of the aisle came together to protect unborn children from the unspeakable cruelty of partial-birth abortion. Many are still unable to forget the conscience-stirring images and diagrams showing an unborn child being partially delivered and then killed before fully emerging from the birth canal. Ultimately, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed that partial-birth abortion was incompatible with our nation’s character and upheld a ban on the procedure.
Groundbreaking legislation recently introduced in Kansas that would protect unborn children from dismemberment abortions is causing quite the stir among abortion advocates.
Sen. Tim Scott made history in 2014 when he became the first African-American senator from the state of South Carolina and the first elected from the South since 1881. This year, he bears the distinct honor of leading the congressional delegation to the March for Life, along with Rep. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (R-Wa.).
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated Sunday, January 22nd as Sanctity of Human Life Day.
In a discussion on PBS’s “To the Contrary” on the subject of abortion center regulations, Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting person who speaks for the District of Columbia in the House of Representatives, willfully ignored the tragic reality of abortion.
It’s only January of 2015 but the 2016 election cycle has already begun. Today, Senator Barbara Boxer of California became the first senator to announce her retirement at the end of her current term. Boxer earned a harrowing reputation as one of the U.S. Senate’s most outspoken abortion advocates. According to National Right to Life, Boxer voted against all limitations on abortion during a congressional career that has spanned more than three decades.
