Robin's contractions had started yet she was standing with me in the pouring rain at the University of New Mexico in front of a Students for Life's display about the consequences of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the infamous Supreme Court decisions that legalized abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. A member of the leadership team of the UNM Students for Life and one of the founding members of its campus' Pregnant on Campus outreach program, she wanted to be there to talk to her fellow students about abortion.
Robin could have related to almost any student on a college campus who was pregnant. The awkward stares. The cluelessness about where to go for special housing for parenting students. The anxiety about figuring out how to finish her education while caring for her baby. Sorting through Google trying to find resources for pregnant students on campus.
Becoming unexpectedly pregnant while in college can be a scary situation for most women, and many of these students have no idea about the resources available to them on their college campuses to help them stay in school and parent their children. more >>
With the recent attention to race, discrimination, and violence in the news, there's a major racist organization that's been entirely ignored by the mainstream media: Planned Parenthood.
Yes, you heard me right. Planned Parenthood – all too often thought of as merely a "women's health care provider – is actually America's abortion giant and racist to boot.
Not only does Planned Parenthood constantly erect new clinics in areas of cities where minorities live in larger numbers, but the organization has also been caught on tape happily accepting donations to specifically target Black babies for abortion. more >>
Acalanes High School in Lafayette, California, allowed Planned Parenthood employees to teach freshmen students sex education last month using a gingerbread man-like diagram of transgender expression and pamphlets asking students if they are ready for sex, according to the nonprofit law firm Pacific Justice League.
PJL said it has received complaints from parents who say their children felt "pressured to have sex" after Planned Parenthood distributed handouts about gender and preparing for sexual intercourse.
One of the three handouts in question, "The Genderbread Person" worksheet taken from a book titled The Social Justice Advocate's Handbook: A Guide to Gender by comedian and social justice advocate Sam Killerman, teaches that "gender isn't binary." more >>

With today's modern technology and medical information, we have a real-time window into the womb. What happens to babies before birth – all the ways they move, grow, and change – is nothing short of amazing.
Here are just 10 things that happen to babies before birth. These 10 things demonstrate their uniqueness, value, and of course, their humanity. more >>
Although a federal funding bill the House passed on Thursday includes language urging the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure Obamacare's federal health exchange provides consumers with transparency on which plans include a separate elective abortion surcharge, pro-life advocates are skeptical that HHS will actually listen to Congress.
Pro-lifers in the House sought to include in the CRomnibus appropriations bill, which would keep the federal government funded through next September if it passes the Senate, two concrete amendments that would have forced greater abortion transparency on the exchanges and created a legal course of action for those individuals and institutions discriminated against because they do not cover abortions for their employees.
But to the ire of pro-life advocates, neither the No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act nor the Abortion Non-Discrimination Act were included in the base bill. Instead, pro-lifers had to settle for non-binding language, which is seen as just a slap on the wrist to HHS for not providing consumers with enough detail about which plans on the exchange cover elective abortions. more >>
Millennials are increasingly more pro-life and supportive of restrictions on abortion than their parents' generation, according to polling data taken over the last decade, and pro-life leader credit medical technology for this growing trend.
Lila Rose, president of the pro-life group Live Action, told The Christian Post in a recent interview that advances in ultrasound technology is just one of the many reasons why teenagers and people in their 20s are joining the movement.
"There's a window into the womb with ultrasound. Just having the look into the womb you can see, even in the first trimester, the early development of the child — you can see the humanity of the child," Rose said. "Now that we have that imagery and it's more prevalent, people are having that personal encounter with the child, so it's easier to recognize their human rights." more >>
