WASHINGTON — Abortion doctors experience a "burden of guilt" for the deaths of babies they are responsible for killing, David Daleiden, the man behind the two and-a-half year undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood, explained Thursday.
Daleiden, a 27-year-old pro-life activist who founded the Center for Medical Progress and headed the undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood's aborted baby parts compensation practices, sat down with Southern Baptist Convention ethicist Russell Moore and Focus on the Family's Jim Daly at the 2016 Evangelicals for Life conference to discuss his personal experiences from the investigation.
As the findings of the CMP investigation were released in a series of YouTube videos last year, Daleiden witnessed first-hand the inhumane and casual way that doctors and executives of the nation's largest abortion provider referred to and treated human fetuses and how they discussed ways that the company and its partners skirt around federal laws and restrictions. more >>

Called the Dignity of Life Advisory Board, members will include Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler, Assemblies of God General Superintendent Dr. George O. Wood, Baylor University Professor Francis Beckwith, and Christian apologist and author Ravi Zacharias.

"Stand up for others: especially the weak, especially the vulnerable." – President Barack Obama, State of the Union Address, Jan. 12, 2016
During his final address to Congress last week, President Obama's words near the end resonated with Americans of all political persuasions. Yet in delving into what he means by weak and vulnerable, worldviews begin to clash. In law and public policy, specifics matter.
While the President's speech sidestepped his signature issue of abortion rights — without even a mention of "reproductive choices" or other euphemisms for ending innocent lives — clearly his worldview does not see the pre-born as weak or vulnerable. By contrast, compassion for mother and child is the heartbeat of the pro-life movement. more >>
Tens of thousands of pro-lifers from across the nation are expected to gather on the National Mall Friday to protest America's embrace of abortion during the annual March for Life rally, which this year holds the theme "pro-life and pro-women go hand in hand."
Although forecasts are calling for snow this upcoming weekend, activists are still planning to bear the frigid temperatures and march down Constitution Avenue in Washington D.C. on the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade with the purpose of speaking in defense of the nearly 60 million babies that have been aborted since the Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973.
The march is set to take place at 1 p.m. and will be preceded by musical acts and an hour-long rally near the Washington Monument that will feature a number of prominent Christian speakers such as Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, Southern Baptist Convention ethicist Russell Moore, social conservative leader Jim Daly, and a number of other prominent pro-life activists and politicians. more >>
There is a new theme emerging in the media: an explicit attempt to normalize abortion to a degree we haven't seen before.
Pro-choice advocates were once content to refer to abortion as an unfortunate necessity, but in the face of pro-life gains in legal and cultural fronts, pro-choicers are going for broke on a new strategy: flaunt your abortion.
The Twitter trend #shoutyourabortion is the most obvious and dumbed-down version of this trend. But other instances in the past few years are numerous. more >>
WASHINGTON — A new Marist Poll released Tuesday finds that an overwhelming majority of Americans support implementing tougher restrictions for abortions, including more than six out of 10 pro-choice individuals who favor banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Commissioned by the Catholic fraternal organization Knights of Columbus, Marist conducted its annual phone survey gauging the public's attitudes toward abortion and legislation seeking to restrict access to abortion in the United States in November 2015.
Although the media likes to portray the narrative that America is about split in half on abortion when it comes to pro-life versus pro-choice, the survey, which interviewed nearly 1,700 respondents nationwide, with an error margin of +/- 2.4 percentage points, suggests that there is a broad consensus in America that supports tougher abortions laws. more >>
