The Abortion Lobby’s Evolving Demands: From “My Body, My Choice” to “My Choice That You Must Pay for and Commit.”

Written by Patience Griswold

In May of 2018, a nurse at the University of Vermont Medical Center (UVMMC) was called into the operating room to assist with a “surgery.” Upon arrival, she discovered that the “surgery” she had been called in to help with was in fact an abortion and that she had been lied to. Although she was on the hospital’s list of conscientious objectors who had made clear to the hospital that they were morally opposed to abortion and there were other nurses available who were not on the list, UVMMC staff refused to call in a replacement and she was faced with losing her job and possibly her license if she refused to participate.… Continue Reading

Putting a Human Face on Abortion

Written by Dr. Jerry Newcombe

One of the great blessings of the United States is that written into our national birth certificate, the Declaration of Independence, is the acknowledgment that we are endowed by our Creator with the right to life.

But the right to life is under assault today through the widespread practice of abortion – and has been for decades.

Amazingly, through the years, there have been a few that actually survived an abortion attempt.… Continue Reading

Satanists Sue For Religious Right to Ritual Abortions

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

This past week while the nation was distracted by Joe Biden’s dementia-ridden incompetence and Andrew Cuomo’s predatory misogyny, The Satanic Temple of Texas filed suit to defend its religious right to engage in child sacrifice as a spiritual ritual.

The Dallas Observer reports as follows.

“[On Feb. 23, 2021] The Satanic Temple [of Dallas, Fort Worth, and Houston] filed a lawsuit against the State of Texas alleging certain state-mandated abortion regulations violate the religious liberty of its members … [and] violate the temple’s religious teachings.

The Mark of Faith

Written by State Representative Adam Niemerg

“Any country that accepts abortion,
is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants.”

What Would a Democrat-Controlled Presidency and Congress Mean for America

Written by Laurie Higgins

Republicans who care about liberty, equality, justice, safety, and economic prosperity must vote for President Donald J. Trump and Republican U.S. Senators. A Democrat-controlled presidency and U.S. Senate would further empower the arrogant, ignorant, divisive, tyrannical cancel culture that has taken root in every major cultural institution in America. Academia, the mainstream press, Big Tech, corporate America, Hollywood, and professional medical and mental health organizations collude to censor the dissemination of ideas leftists don’t like and oppress those who disseminate them.… Continue Reading
