The U.S. Supreme Court will soon issue its most significant abortion opinion in decades.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been considering how our movement should proceed in the upcoming Presidential election.
Great news for free speech, specifically pro-life speech, on college campuses! Students for Life of America’s University of South Alabama campus group, along with Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys, have reached a legal settlement in a lawsuit that has increased the amount of the University of South Alabama campus that is open to free speech from less than one percent to the vast majority of campus.
The Mustangs for Life, the Students for Life group at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, set up close to 3,000 crosses in a main area of campus as part of the common display that memorializes the number of babies that will be aborted that day this week. Sometimes it causes more controversy; other times it doesn’t. This situation is the former.
The process of picking a Supreme Court Justice has become a complicated and emotionally wrought procedure, one that deals more with ideology than actual jurisprudence. The nation has every right to have a Supreme Court with justices on the bench that adhere to the U.S. Constitution and balances the other two branches of government, performing their duties as the original Founding Fathers envisioned.
While this election cycle is like no other our nation has experienced – who would have thought the front runners would be a socialist versus a reality TV star? – one particular issue has been brought up multiple times during one party’s debates and zero times during the other party’s debates.
As President Barack Obama delivers his last State of the Union to the United States as its president, reflecting back on his legacy as the most pro-abortion president ever to lead this nation is sobering.
Planned Parenthood has been the focus of the pro-life movement for years now – and for good reason. The nation’s largest abortion chain has been caught in undercover videos aiding and abetting sex traffickers, taking donations to abort black babies, covering up statutory rape and child abuse and harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies. Yet Planned Parenthood gets over half a billion a year from taxpayers.
Desperation breeds the kind of logic that warrants double takes – did they really just say that?
