Bristol Palin’s Memoir: A Lesson in Abstinence
Laura Mitchell
Bristol Palin—who has been in and out of the media spotlight ever since her surprise pregnancy emerged during her mother’s campaign—released her side of the story this week in her memoir Not Afraid of My Life: My Journey So Far.  Though a number of negative reviews have already surfaced (many of which question her writing a memoir at age 20), few have applauded her humble honesty.Despite the consequences, Palin chose life for her son, Tripp—and being under the scrutiny of an unimpressed...Read More

J.D. Griffin
As LifeNews.com reports, North Carolina recently became the latest of more than 25 states to pass legislation protecting pregnant women and their unborn children. Jenna Nielson, a Raleigh newspaper carrier, was murdered when she was eight and one half months pregnant. Named in honor of Nielson’s unborn son Ethan, “Ethan’s Law,” “recognizes the unborn child as a second victim when the unborn child is injured or dies during the commission of the crime.” Before the passage of “Ethan’s Law,”...Read More

Rushad Thomas
Following the release of Live Action’s latest undercover video, last night on Fox News Live Action’s Lila Rose went to head to head in a debate with Sally Kohn of the pro-abortion Movement Vision Lab. In the interview, Lila explained the investigation conducted by her organization, LiveAction, which showed Indiana Planned Parenthood (PP) staffers admitting that Medicaid-eligible women in the State will continue to have ready access to well woman care once Planned Parenthood is defunded...Read More

Pro-Abortion Extremism on Capitol Hill
J.D. Griffin
As the Daily Caller reported, during the debate over the 2011 budget, New York Rep. Louise Slaughter spoke to a crowd of abortion advocates and railed against a proposal to strip Planned Parenthood of its federal funding. Instead of simply disagreeing, Rep. Slaughter argued that the proposal’s pro-life backers are “here to kill women.” As if that reasoning were not flawed enough, Rep. Slaughter continued by surmising, “You are allowed to have an abortion if you’ve been raped or it’s a matter of...Read More

Live Action Exposes Planned Parenthood's Medicaid Misinformation Campaign
J.D. Griffin
Live Action, led by Lila Rose, has exposed yet another Planned Parenthood misinformation campaign. After Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels signed legislation preventing approximately $2 million from reaching the coffers of the state’s 28 Planned Parenthood offices, the organization, through an official press release, argued that such action would “take away health care from thousands of women in Indiana.” Thanks to the Live Action investigation, and resulting video, we now know that all Planned...Read More

Votes Have Consequences: Pro-Life Democrats?
J.D. Griffin
Last year, pro-life advocates watched as self-identified pro-life Democrats abandoned their principles, their constituents and the unborn by voting for Obamacare, the largest expansion of abortion since Roe. The group, largely led by then Michigan Rep. Bart Stupak, chose to accept an Executive Order—a fig leaf—from President Obama rather than stand their ground for Life. A notable exception was pro-life Democratic Rep. Dan Lipinski who, unlike his colleagues, withstood immense pressure and...Read More

European Union Protects Doctors' Freedom of Conscience
J.D. Griffin
As Radio Free Europe reported, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) adopted a resolution which protects European Union (EU) doctors from being coerced into performing abortions. Unfortunately, Resolution 1763 did not begin with such noble intentions. In fact, former British Member of Parliament Christine McCafferty introduced the draft resolution with a title of “Women’s Access to Lawful Medical Care: The Problem of Unregulated Use of Conscientious Objection.” Despite...Read More

Maternity home for college students
purdy5
Last Monday, construction began on the first ever maternity home for college students.  Located next to Belmont Abbey College, near Charlotte, NC, the home serves an extremely essential purpose in the pro-life movement.  College students with planned and unplanned pregnancies face a great deal of pressure and discrimination as they struggle to maintain their academic and personal lives.  According to the Guttmacher Institute, approximately 71% of post-abortive women say that they...Read More

Pro-Life Victory: A Texas Man Takes a Stand for Life
J.D. Griffin
Recently, Edwin Graning took a stand for life in Texas and lost his job as a result. In January 2010, Graning, when employed as a driver for a nine-county public transit system, was dispatched to transport two women to a Planned Parenthood clinic. Being “an ordained Christian minister who is opposed to abortion,” Mr. Graning respectfully called his supervisor and explained that he, “in good conscience…could not take someone to have an abortion.” Instead of simply dispatching another driver to...Read More

Pro-Life Fetal Pain Legislation Enacted in Alabama
J.D. Griffin
In his LifeNews.com article, Cameron Smith, General Counsel for the Alabama Policy Institute, analyzes recently enacted pro-life legislation in Alabama. This month, with Gov. Robert Bentley’s signing of the Alabama Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, Alabama joined Nebraska, Idaho, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Indiana in passing legislation to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Lawmakers in Alabama, and other states, have used scientific research to justify setting the ban on abortions...Read More
