Dare to ask: What do you mean by choice?
Chris Crawford
Today, led by pro-life blogger Jill Stanek, the pro-life online community will join together once again on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade to ask NARAL, “What do you mean by choice?” Choice has been the operative buzzword for their movement for decades now, but their definition of choice is ambiguous. NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and others use buzzwords like “choice” in order to simplify the issue of abortion.

Lucy Feil
How do we keep baby girls safe from death? According to one doctor, the answer may be to withhold the child’s sex until he or she is at least 30 weeks old – too late for the easy “fix,” a no-questions-asked abortion.
