“‘Money is The Root of All Evil’ Turns Out to Be True for Abortion” (Illinois Family Spotlight #165)

Prostitution and Abortion: The Exploitation of Women and Children

Written by Abigail Moreno-Riano

Earlier this year, the state of New York legalized abortion up until birth, and the governor and abortion activists then proceeded to celebrate this loss of life as a joyous occasion. Now, another crisis of human dignity was narrowly averted after New York came close to passing the first ever complete decriminalization of prostitution.

While Nevada is the only other state to legalize forms of prostitution, New York’s bill is the most extensive bill that has ever been introduced, and as these authors noted, “would only turn mostly women and girls into ‘commodities to be bought and sold.’” Thankfully, this bill has been tabled for now, but there is no doubt that pro-prostitution activists will continue to push for more decriminalization legislation in the future.… Continue Reading

Buttigieg Distorts Logic and Scripture on Abortion

Written by David Limbaugh

Perhaps Mayor Pete Buttigieg would have a better shot at appealing to Christian voters if he would not go to such extreme lengths to contort Scripture to rationalize his party’s abominable stance on abortion.

The Democratic presidential candidate openly expresses his Christian faith and was the first candidate to hire a national faith outreach director. He believes political conservatism is less compatible with Christianity than political liberalism.

Buttigieg says the GOP likes “to cloak itself in their language of religion” and accuses Republicans of hypocrisy for their alleged callousness about family separations at the border.… Continue Reading

They discuss the psychology of the Face the Truth Tour, the danger and general unpopularity of repealing parental notice of a minor’s abortion, why now is the best time to meet face-to-face with your lawmakers, and new legislation that would repeal Illinois’ newest abortion law in addition to making Illinois a heartbeat state.

They also talk about relatively recent critiques of how Republican party leadership handled the fight against the RHA, and the easiest way by far to get started in the pro-life movement: 40 Days for Life.… Continue Reading

Snatching Body Parts

Barbarous body snatchers calling themselves “doctors” don’t harvest just the parts of recently killed tiny humans. They also harvest them even while tiny humans yet live. One such “doctor” is Jörg C. Gerlach about whose work in harvesting livers from babies between 18-22 weeks gestation David Daleiden wrote in an essay published by the Washington Examiner on June 7 and excerpted here:

The abortions… were performed by routine medical induction; the labor was induced by local prostaglandin administration….

Rejecting the Marxists’ Version of the Constitution

Written by Robert Knight

The first rule of any Marxist revolution is that rules are fine if they advance the cause or cripple opponents.  The rules can be discarded the minute they get in the way.

That’s the way America’s Marxists, socialists and many liberals operate when it comes to the U.S. Constitution, especially the First Amendment.

Here’s the relevant portion:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press.”

When they are legalizing obscenity and destroying community standards, the Left’s attorneys, spearheaded by the ACLU, take a “no-exceptions” view.  … Continue Reading
