SPOTLIGHT: Not Living Perpetually on Government Entitlements

Produced by Benjamin Smith

This edition of Spotlight features Monte Larrick’s interview with Latasha Fields at the recent CURE Chicago Summit for Solutions II. Mrs. Fields shares her testimony – rising above the poverty of her childhood in Baton Rouge, LA, taking personal responsibility for her choices, embracing hard work, pursuing education, and ultimately, placing her faith in Jesus – a testimony she also shared in June with the U.S. House Budget Committee.

Larrick and Fields discuss the Democratic Party’s decades-old tactics that continue to perpetuate poverty and dependence in black communities, the importance of voter education at the local level, and the value of individual moral responsibility.… Continue Reading

The Left’s War on Women

Written by TrevorThomas

One of the ugliest secrets about abortion is that, worldwide, girls are much more likely to be killed in the womb than are boys. This has resulted in an alarming male-to-female ratio in multiple countries. Even the George Soros-funded Human Rights Watch has recently declared that “You Should Be Worrying about the Woman Shortage.”

The piece notes that in India and China alone, there’s “now an estimated 80 million extra men.” Surprisingly, the piece acknowledges that this gross disparity is due to the gross policy of sex-selective abortion.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Rehumanizing the Baby in the Womb

Written by Benjamin Smith

The intersection of Vollmer Rd. and Governors Hwy. in Flossmoor, Illinois was a stop on the 2019 “Face the Truth” Tour, and also the setting for this week’s Spotlight conversation between Monte Larrick and Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League and leader of the FTT Tour.

Scheidler explains the psychology behind the new focus of the “Face the Truth” Tour and speaks to the challenges pro-life proponents face in engaging with the radically pro-abortion, fetus-hating culture that has taken hold in Illinois and our nation.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

Written by Benjamin Smith

Less than two weeks ago, SB25 was signed into law by Gov. Pritzker, effectively making Illinois the most abortion-friendly state in the Midwest, if not the nation. In light of this action, it is fitting that we welcome Tim Moore, board president of Springfield Right to Life, to this edition of Spotlight.

Monte Larrick and Tim Moore discuss how pro-life Illinoisans must move forward in this age of “anything goes” abortion.… Continue Reading

How Weasel Words Pave the Road to Hell

Written by Robert Knight

We are awash in weasel words. That is, euphemisms meant to distract us from reality.  The most obvious ones are replacing homosexuality with “gay,” taxes with “revenue,” spending with “investments,” sexual confusion with “gender identity,” and abortion with “choice.” Actually, abortion has a whole set of weasel terms.

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker drew “whoops and cheers” from onlookers on June 12 as he signed The Reproductive Health Act, which he called “a beacon of hope in the heart of this nation.”  A widely published AP photo shows him grinning broadly and holding up a pen as female abortion activists applaud.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Illinois Is As Easy As ABC: Abortion, Bankruptcy, and Corruption

With Abortion and Socialism, Democrats Are Peddling Slavery Again

Written by Trevor Thomas

In 1860, with the election of Abraham Lincoln as U.S. President, the newly-formed Republican Party controlled the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, and presidency. As was the case with most every state in what would become the Confederacy, my home state of Georgia cited slavery, republicans, and the election of Lincoln as its reasons for seceding:

A brief history of the rise, progress, and policy of anti-slavery and the political organization into whose hands the administration of the federal government has been committed [the republicans] will fully justify the pronounced verdict of the people of Georgia [who voted to secede].

Urgent Abortion ACTION Alert

Written by David E. Smith

Yesterday afternoon, the Illinois House Democrat Caucus met for 2-3 hours to discuss, among other things, the grotesquely misnamed “Reproductive Health Act.” If passed into law, this legislation would dramatically expand abortion–including Medicaid abortions–and usurp parental rights. We expect that the original proposal will be amended and a new (shell) bill number assigned.

Personal PAC, Planned Parenthood of Illinois, the ACLU of Illinois, along with State Representatives Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago), Sara Feigenholtz (D-Chicago) and Robyn Gabel (D-Evanston) are pushing hard to revive this deadly measure before they adjourn for the summer on May 31st.… Continue Reading

Democrats Unhinged Over Alabama’s Abortion Bill

Written by David Limbaugh

Alabama’s mostly Republican lawmakers and governor passed a strong abortion ban this week, and liberals are fit to be tied.

“Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, a bill that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the legislature,” said Gov. Kay Ivey. “To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God.”

In today’s secular culture, the governor’s invocation of God is almost as bold as signing the bill into law.… Continue Reading

The Hollywood Left Hates Alabama

Written by L. Brent Bozell III

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill on May 14 protecting unborn babies from the slaughter of abortion. The vote wasn’t close in the state legislature: 74-3 in the House, 25-6 in the Senate.

One more state has come to its senses.

There’s a wave of pro-life bills being passed in the Southern states. First came the “heartbeat” bills stopping abortions after a baby’s heartbeat can be detected (around six weeks).… Continue Reading
