Be a Man, Bro
Much fun of Ben Sherman’s silly recent blog post has been made. Most of his article contains typical stale pro-abortion arguments. But Sherman adds a little spice and swaggers out, admitting (nay, boasting) that it’s all about his sex life. “Don’t be surprised,” he warns of the current Texas bill, “if casual sex outside relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.” Alright, then.
So Sherman wants to have as much casual sex outside relationships as possible. The “vibe” will be better for him so long as he has the comfort of knowing that he can simply pay a one-time fee to have his unborn child dismembered in the womb rather than accept the responsibility of fatherhood. For being so eager to sacrifice his unborn children for his sex life, though, Sherman seems oddly determined to spend a long time deliberating over his decision to pressure his women into abortions. After all, the topic of his "bro-choice" rallying cry, the Texas bill, only prohibits abortions after twenty weeks (the point at which his innocent children feel excruciating pain as they are killed). Wouldn’t he want to restore normality to his sex life as soon as possible and intimidate his hookups into abortions quickly, lest his personal life experience lengthier inconveniences? I don’t get it.
Anyway, the broader point, of course, is that what makes Sherman "bro-choice" is his amazingly callous lack of seriousness when it comes to his sexual choices. Men must respect women, not use them. Your job, bro, is to be a man: take responsibility for your actions and stand up for the vulnerable. Maybe your sex life isn’t the only thing that matters. I don’t stand with Ben Sherman. I’m proud to be bro-life.Read More

On the Ground in Texas!
Yesterday, I embarked on a historic journey to Austin, Texas to support pro-life Texans, women, and the unborn! On a bus trip organized by Students for Life of America, we arrived at the capitol Monday around noon. Immediately, we set out for the rotunda where the Texas Stand for Life rally was taking place.
[Read more here about why Texas needs our pro-life support.]
Pro-life advocates stood up and shared their stories with everyone as a sea of blue gathered to support them. Some abortion supporters were present, holding signs against religion and supporting “choice.“ One had the word “theology” crossed out in a circle.
While many pro-life speakers did talk about their faith, God, and used Bible quotes, the legislation being advocated right in Texas right now is not about religion. It is about saving the lives of viable babies, capable of feeling pain, protecting women, and requiring abortion clinics to follow common ground regulations. As the many at Secular Pro-life will attest to, you do not have to be religious to understand the scientific fact that life begins at conception and deserves protection – especially pain capable 20 week old children.
My group had the privilege of meeting with Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst. He is determined to see this bill passed and informed us that “we won’t allow mob rule in Texas.” To ensure order, the session will start Tuesday morning and will last until 4 or 5 Wednesday morning.
After the meeting, we moved back to the rotunda for even more amazing speeches. When the pro-abortion crowd tried to make noise to disrupt the speakers, pro-lifers outnumbered them and our cheers and clapping drowned them out. It ended with the speaker asking everyone, pro-life and pro-abortion to join in prayer.
As the day drew to an end, we prepared for another Stand for Life rally. Our supporters are numerous and eager to take a stand for life. Keep following for updates!Read More

This July 4, We Must Protect Everyone's Inalienable Rights
Unborn children will be spared from abortion tomorrow only because most abortion centers will be closed so that their employees can celebrate Independence Day.
In the past few years, the abortion lobby has increasingly moved away from its rhetoric about “choice,” toward rhetoric about “reproductive rights” and “reproductive justice.” Abortion-supporting writer Natasha Chart recently wrote an article titled Just Have the Baby? A New Mom Reveals Why There is No ‘Just,’ and Not Necessarily Any Justice Either for the pro-abortion site RH Reality Check. Chart lamented that we need abortion because pregnancy makes women fat, requires them to buy maternity clothes, and can make their feet swell.
“There’s no ‘just’ about having a baby. And not necessarily any justice, either,” Chart wrote.
Since America’s founding, women have made significant progress—gaining suffrage, advancing to top positions in every career field, and holding elected office, for example. But girls face the very real possibility of being aborted when they are young and most vulnerable, both in America and around the world.
Despite the abortion industry’s allegations that it believes in justice and rights for all women, it’s not interested in stopping gendercide—the deliberate extermination of baby girls just because of their gender, a growing global problem.
Last summer, Live Action released undercover videos showing the abortion industry’s complacency in providing sex-selective abortions to eliminate baby girls. There’s nothing “just” about killing very young girls just because of their gender.
As we celebrate Independence Day, let’s not forget that even though women are equal under American law, baby girls are being targeted just for being girls. There isn’t any freedom or justice for victims of abortion. We must work to make America a place where everyone is guaranteed the inalienable right to life.Read More
