EMILY’s List, the political action committee that showers money on Democratic female candidates who back abortion without limits, announced its top House targets for 2016 on Monday. The group is hoping for a better showing than 2014, when despite having a massive financial edge, their candidates came up short. In that year, there were 26 races in which a candidate supported by National Right to Life was running against an EMILY’s List candidate. Nineteen (73%) of the National Right to Life-supported candidates won.
We already knew that children with Down syndrome are spectacular. But one Utah dad is using his photography skills to drive home the message that there is no limit to what people with Down syndrome can accomplish.

A recent article published by the Washington Examiner focused on the remarkable pro-life progress being made on the state level.
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.
