…an article by Naomi Cahn and June Carbone in the left-wing publication Slate targets the right-to-life movement as the real villain in the rise of unwed motherhood. The authors come out point-blank and draw the conclusion—admittedly not illogical—that pro-lifers are to blame for unwed mothers.


It won’t come as any shock to readers who are a part of the pro-life movement, but the results of a survey published in the book Aborted Women: Silent No More, provide more heartbreaking evidence that abortion is only the surface “choice” of the mother, and instead the tragic endgame of a series of manipulation and lies by Planned Parenthood, along with unfortunate direction given by those a scared pregnant woman turns to for advice.


You may recall the horrific shooting that took place last August at the Washington D.C. headquarters of the Family Research Council. The conservative political organization was the target of Floyd Lee Corkins, who came in and shot the guard (who survived) before being arrested. This past week, Corkins pleaded guilty to three different charges, including an act of terrorism.


The state of Arkansas is on the move when it comes to defending the unborn and setting up the prospects for an eventual Supreme Court showdown that could drastically weaken or overturn Roe vs. Wade. The Arkansas state Senate has passed a bill that would protect human life at the point from which a heartbeat can be detected by ultrasound. If the bill passes the Arkansas House and is signed into law by Governor Mike Beebe, it would in practice protect society’s most innocent from the 12-week point forward.


For decades, the left-wing propaganda machine that disguises itself as “science” has been lecturing the world about the dangers of overpopulation. Anyone watching the math already had reason to be skeptical, as Western Europe dealt with population shortages. Now, according to the numbers from the Center For Disease Control & Prevention, the United States, it turns out, has the reverse problem—apparently the people of this country aren’t having enough children.


A week ago today, the pro-life marchers in Washington D.C. made a powerful statement that the cause for the protection of innocent life will always live on. Two days from now, the singer Beyonce will take the halftime stage at the Super Bowl. And the interviews she’s given over the past week have been an even more powerful statement about the humanity of the child in the womb.
