Truth and Love or Hate?

Written by Rev. Calvin Lindstrom

I am a pastor and board member of Illinois Family Action (IFA). I am happy to serve with IFA because I believe that Christian principles have an application for politics and society. Man’s main problem is not political. All men and women enter the world as sinners and need a Savior and salvation. The main thrust of God’s Word is to show the only way of salvation that is found in Jesus Christ, but God’s Word also gives guidance and direction to families and civil governments.… Continue Reading

Do Democrat Politicians Prefer Dead Babies?

Written by Abigail Ruth

There has been a significant amount of howling among Democrats and even some Republicans since IFA posted an article written by Teri Paulson last week that had to be retitled, “Why is Legalized Abortion Called a Holocaust?” Briefly,  Illinois Family was accused of “hate speech,” “inappropriate behavior,” “trivializing the memory of Holocaust victims,” and “promoting violence,” to name a few.

No one who complained actually addressed the core issue of whether or not there really is a moral difference between killing people based on their ethnicity (e.g., Jewish) versus killing people based on their imperfections or  inconvenience to others.… Continue Reading

Leftist Hysteria and Their Language Rules

Written by Laurie Higgins

An illuminating tempest in a polluted teapot churned up at the end of last week when 10 “progressives” in Springfield took umbrage at an article written for Illinois Family Action (IFA) by Teri Paulson that compared the sickening, vigorous, and enthusiastic anti-life position of the Democratic Party to the sickening, vigorous, and enthusiastic anti-life position of the Nazi Party.

Somehow Chicago Sun-Times writer Tina Sfondeles got wind of their umbrage and wrote an article that quoted one of the indignant lawmakers, State Rep.… Continue Reading

Dems’ Deceit and Moral Bankruptcy on Abortion

Written by David Limbaugh

Why should anyone be surprised at the left’s careening into extremism on abortion? Leftists’ position has always been morally bankrupt and deceitful.

I am old enough to remember when Barack Obama, in the 2008 presidential campaign, vehemently denied that he had supported infanticide while in the Illinois Senate. Fact-checkers and other Obama defenders came out of the woodwork to defend Obama’s moral integrity. What were those facts?

Well, in 2001, Obama voted against Illinois’ Born-Alive Infants Protection Act in committee, which would have required immediate medical care for any child born as a result of a failed abortion.… Continue Reading

Democratic U.S. Senators Refuse to Ban De Facto Infanticide

Written by Laurie Higgins

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was just defeated because we don’t have enough U.S. senators who oppose infanticide. The vote was 53 in favor and 44 opposed—including 2020 presidential hopefuls Booker, Gillibrand, Harris, Klobuchar, Sanders, and Warren—falling 7 votes short of the 60 needed to pass. Illinoisans should take note that both our senators, Durbin and Duckworth, voted against banning de facto infanticide. This exposes the repugnant and pernicious moral degeneracy of many in our ruling class.… Continue Reading

Pro-Aborts Aren’t Victims; They Create Victims

Written by Peter Heck

It’s one of the most curious approaches to a lopsided public policy battle I’ve seen, and yet it continues to work.  The propensity of pro-abortion advocates to play the underdog is so frighteningly effective, I have to ask if the portion of the general population that falls for it has taken complete leave of their senses.

I understand this approach meets the “speak truth to power” mantra that the political left has adopted.  … Continue Reading

Sophisticated People Don’t Use the Silly “Pro-Choice” Label

Written by Peter Heck

“No one is pro-abortion.”  That’s what the commenter said in response to one of my stories last week about the sudden, unveiled, and frighteningly bold push by progressives to advocate for nothing short of legalizing infanticide.  It was nice to see that even with the left’s newfound stomach for abortion that is anything but “safe and rare,” they were still willing to fall back onto tired, worn-out semantical games to justify the gruesome ritual.… Continue Reading

Infanticidal Democrats Took Their Cues from Barack Obama

Written by Trevor Thomas

When it comes to the most significant moral issues of our time, no one should be surprised by immoral actions of modern liberals. You can be saddened, shocked, angry, disgusted, and the like, but you should not be surprised.  This is certainly true when it comes to the issue of even infanticide.

For decades, Democrats have dehumanized the unborn and argued against protecting the most innocent and helpless among us, even when they escaped death in their mothers’ wombs.  … Continue Reading

Republicans Ignore Abortion as a Wedge Issue

Written by Cal Skinner
McHenry County Blog – Former Illinois State Representative

In 2010 State Senator Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) lost the gubernatorial race to Pat Quinn by 31,834 votes–less than one percentage point. Brady took a pounding from the pro-abortion Personal PAC’s television ads starting in early August.

Unlike Bill Clinton in his 1992 contest against George Bush, Brady never responded when he was attacked. On the abortion issue, he stood there like a punching bag and took the blows.… Continue Reading

Abortion Extremism Exposing Left’s Moral Contradictions

Written by David Limbaugh

It’s horrifying that we are rapidly approaching the kind of culture that God ordered the Israelites to wipe out when he finally allowed them to enter the land he had promised them — a culture of rampant immorality, idolatry and child sacrifice.

For the longest time, the political left insisted that it was not pro-abortion but pro-choice, that it truly wanted to make abortion safe, legal and rare. I never could quite grasp why liberals would care about making it rare if they didn’t consider the unborn to be human lives.… Continue Reading
