Support Three New State Reps Who Support Life!

Thanks to a super-majority of left-wing lawmakers, Illinois “boasts” some of the most egregious abortion laws in our nation.

On Tuesday, May 28th, the Illinois House voted 64-50 to pass SB 25 — an abhorrent bill creating a fundamental “right” to abortion throughout all 9 months of pregnancy. Three days later, the Illinois State Senate voted 34-20 to pass it as well. This past Wednesday, Gov.… Continue Reading

Democrats: The “Post-Truth” Party

Written by Trevor Thomas

In September of 2008, U.S. Senator, vice-presidential candidate, and democrat Joe Biden was asked his thoughts—“as a Roman Catholic”—on when life begins. Demonstrating a vast ignorance of science, along with an unflattering display of faith, he told NBC’s Tom Brokaw, “Look, I know when it begins for me.” A decade later, using the same “post-truth” relativism, New York Mayor, presidential candidate, and democrat Bill de Blasio, after signing a law that allows New Yorkers to declare their chosen gender on their birth certificate, told a cheering crowd, “You be you.… Continue Reading

Facebook & Twitter: Biased Against the Right?

Written by David Grogan

Recently, representatives from Facebook and Twitter appeared before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to respond to claims that their companies are engaging in the censorship of conservative news and voices. For years, conservatives have lamented the power of Big Tech over political discourse and their bias against the Right.

U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) made sure to point out that, in her view, the evidence conservatives have for social media bias is purely anecdotal.… 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

Ignorance First, Destruction Next

Written by Laura Hollis

If the latest policies advanced by prominent Democrats are any indication, the national party is going over a cliff: outrageous and extreme abortion legislation (enacted or proposed) in New York, Virginia and Rhode Island; the “Green New Deal”; U.S. Senator Cory Booker‘s meatless society; U.S. Senators Kamala Harris‘ and Kirsten Gillibrand‘s determination to do away with private insurance.

The current slate of Democratic policy proposals are shocking in a number of ways, but one thing that stands out is the staggering ignorance of the proponents.… Continue Reading

Planned Parenthood and the African-American Community

Written by Jerry Newcombe

Does Planned Parenthood target blacks? That is what Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece thinks.

Recently, I spoke on my radio show with Evangelist Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She is the Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn with the organization Priests for Life. The focus was on Planned Parenthood and the African-American community.

Her comments are relevant all year round, especially around this time of MLK day and the anniversary of the U.S.… Continue Reading

Why Democrats’ New “Morality” Messaging Will Fail

Written by Jon Schweppe

If you’ve been paying attention to the rhetoric coming from elected Democrats and progressive activists in recent weeks, you’ve probably noticed a calculated effort to frame issues in the vein of morality.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared to reporters that building a border wall would be an “immorality.” Abortion activist Amelia Bonow told children in a viral video that aborting her baby was “part of God’s plan.” Even social media superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who apparently works part-time as a Member of Congress — clumsily invoked morality to excuse her aversion to the truth, telling Anderson Cooper that it’s more important to be “morally right” than factually accurate.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: What’s the Dress Code?

Written by Benjamin Smith

This special edition of Spotlight features highlights from a post-Thanksgiving dialogue between David Smith, IFI’s Executive Director, and Stephanie Trussell on the Stephanie Trussell Show (WLS 890 AM).

Their initial topic of conversation addresses a local pastor who confronted a male church member who repeatedly attended worship dressed as a woman, the resulting social media reaction and backlash against the pastor, and the need to support pastors and church leaders who take a hard stance for adherence to Scripture and biblical principles.… Continue Reading

GOP Fails Pro-Life Voters by Refusing to Defund Planned Parenthood

Written by Carly Hoilman

As the final weeks of the GOP-controlled Congress draw to a close, pro-life voters look on with great disappointment at the Republican politicians who failed to follow through on their most crucial promise: to defund Planned Parenthood. In about a month, Democrats will take over the U.S. House of Representatives and any hope of stripping the abortion giant of federal funding will pass away.

With precious little time left in the lame-duck session, GOP congressional leaders have chosen to ignore the persistent urgings of pro-life leaders.Continue Reading
