LifeNews Welcomes Four Top Pro-Life Bloggers Including Bobby Schindler

National   |   Steven Ertelt   |   Jun 2, 2013   |   10:02PM   |   Washington, DC, the premier pro-life news outlet and the most-visited pro-life web site on the Internet, is excited to welcome four key pro-life activists as new contributing bloggers.

With more than 5.5 million pageviews every month, LifeNews is the site millions of pro-life advocates trust for the latest news and analysis from the pro-life perspective. LifeNews features a slate of top pro-life bloggers and activists including Ryan Bomberger, Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life, David Prentice, Andrew Bair, Rebecca Taylor, and leaders from groups like National Right to Life, Americans United for Life and the Susan B. Anthony List.

Patient advocate Bobby Schindler, the Executive Director of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network and the brother of Terri Schindler Schiavo, who was killed after two weeks of starvation and dehydration, joins LifeNews to help focus on patient care, disability and end-of-life issues. He knows first-hand how patients are denied basics like food and water or lifesaving medical treatment.

“I am delighted to be invited to be part of the blog team,” he said.

“This gives me the fortunate opportunity to confront the issue of imposed death that is rapidly growing in our nation. Moreover, I can address the inaccuracies that continue to be reported about my sister, Terri Schiavo and the constant attempt by the mainstream media to justify her inhumane death,” he added.

Melissa Ohden’s story puts her in a small group of amazing people. Melissa is the survivor of a failed saline infusion abortion in 1977 and the founder of The Abortion Survivors Network, an organization which seeks to educate the public about the prevalence of abortion survivors and the reality of abortion.

But Melissa is not alone. She will be sharing her compelling testimony and highlighting other abortion survivors in her writing for LifeNews — putting a rarely-seen face on the victims of abortion.

“Although I regularly update the site with new survivor testimonies, I will be sharing exclusive previews of survivor stories here on LifeNews,” Melissa says.

“I am excited about this opportunity to work with LifeNews to share a perspective on building a culture of life and working in the pro-life movement that is unique—that of an abortion survivor,” Ohden adds. “I am equally excited about how my regular blogging here will provide readers of LifeNews with more knowledge of survivors and our experiences, which I hope will provide readers with real-life examples to strengthen their position on life and motivate them to keep moving forward in creating a culture of life.”

LifeNews has also added two up-and-coming pro-life leaders.

One of the top people communicating the pro-life message in today’s pop culture world is Scott Klusendorf. Hot on his trail is Josh Brahm, one of the best and brightest young minds of the pro-life movement and someone dedicated to helping pro-life advocates make their message more effective in changing hearts and minds. Klusendorf himself has called Brahm “an excellent communicator, a rising star, and one of the most talented young pro-life apologists I know.”

Braham is “very excited to be an official blogger for”

“No other pro-life website or blog has gained the kind of traffic that LifeNews gets by keeping pro-life people informed of both daily pro-life news as well as highlighting some of the best opinion pieces coming out of the movement,” the education director for Right to Life of Central California says. “I’m looking forward to publishing articles that help pro-life people reconsider the way they often communicate their views to pro-choice people, as well as continuing to publish audio and video that they will find engaging and thought provoking.”

Lauren Enriquez is no stranger to pro-life blogging and she has been communicating the pro-life message for Live Action and Texas for Life. It’s often said that young pro-life advocates are the future of the pro-life movement — but with her highly-engaging writing style and conviction for respecting the right to life of all people, the future of the pro-life movement is here now and at

“The opportunity to blog for LifeNews is truly an honor,” Enriquez says. “LifeNews has long been the Mecca of pro-life reporting, to which we look for information on a range of pro-life topics so broad and informative that it has become the go-to source for many in the movement.”

“The growing number of excellent pro-life blogs online look to LifeNews as a paradigm and a resource,” Enriquez continues. “I look forward to working with Steven Ertelt and having the opportunity to contribute in some small way to this admirable work.”
