Rep. Bill Cassidy's Pro-Life Reaction to Teen Daughter's Pregnancy

Bill Cassidy Family

Representative Bill Cassidy, considered Louisiana's top pro-life challenger to abortion extremist Senator Mary Landrieu, responded to his 17-year-old daughter's unexpected pregnancy as a supportive father. On July 3 he told the New Orleans Times-Picayune:

Earlier this year, Laura and I learned we will become grandparents this summer. Our children have been the greatest blessing of our lives and we welcome our grandchild as a joyous addition to our family. Our daughter now faces a more challenging future than her peers. She has our unconditional love and support.

Bill and Laura Cassidy's decision to surround their daughter and her unborn child with love and support is an excellent example of how society should welcome new life. It also reflects the sincerity of Bill Cassidy's strong pro-life stance. He is currently working in Congress to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would save 15,000 babies a year from excruciatingly painful late abortions.

How Can We Protect Unborn Babies with Down Syndrome?

This week the Charlotte Lozier Institute released a new paper, “Improving Joyful Lives: Society’s Response to Difference and Disability,” which makes policy recommendations to protect unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome and to educate and support their families.

Mark Bradford, author and president of the Lejeune Foundation USA, writes that oftentimes the information expectant parents receive following a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome heavily favors aborting the baby. Bradford therefore presents key changes that must be made to prevent discrimination and increase support for families. One suggestion is passing legislation that ensures parents are given information revealing the overwhelmingly positive lived experiences of those with Down syndrome and their families.

Another recommendation is increased NIH funding proportionate to the large population of persons with Down syndrome in the United States, which would allow researchers to follow through on the exciting preliminary studies the paper highlights. Prenatal nondiscrimination legislation would be another measure to protect children with Down syndrome from abortion based solely on their disability.

The way we treat individuals with difference or disability is evident through the way we respond to a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis. These measures are vital steps to ensure we treat the most vulnerable among us with the dignity and care they deserve.

SEXED - Live Action's Undercover Investigation into Planned Parenthood's Sex-ed

In classrooms and advertising across the country, Planned Parenthood styles themselves the "sex experts" for teenagers. So teenagers turn to Planned Parenthood for sex advice and eventually, if they conceive a baby, for a lucrative abortion.

But what exactly is the sex advice Planned Parenthood gives teenagers? Live Action, founded by president Lila Rose, investigated. And what they found was so disturbing they had to include a disclaimer: Warning. The following content is not suitable for children.

Clearly Planned Parenthood think it's suitable for the children and teenagers they "counsel" in sex-ed classrooms and their clinics across the country. Do you?

Planned Parenthood receives over half a billion taxpayer dollars every year for their "safe-sex" programs, including those targeting children and teenagers. Under Obamacare, an extra $75 million has been set aside for sex-ed programs... and millions is going to Planned Parenthood.

Stand with us to elect pro-life candidates in 2014 who will build a pro-life majority in the Senate to pass laws protecting unborn babies after 20 weeks from abortion and women and teenagers from predatory abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood.
