  • Dear USA Today, abortion isn’t ‘support’ for female athletes

    Instead of telling little girls — future athletes — “You can do anything!” they are sending the message, “You can do anything … as long as you don’t have children.”

  • The push to normalize infanticide

    America must turn back. There must be justice for the five babies whose remains were recovered from Cesare Santangelo’s abortion business, and the legislative efforts to legalize infanticide in California must be stopped.

    Because Mississippi’s law directly challenges the abortion jurisprudence of Roe v. Wade, the Dobbs case presents the greatest opportunity to overturn Roe since the decision was first handed down in 1973.

  • Poll numbers on Roe show that pro-lifers have a lot of work to do

    The results of a Washington Post-ABC News poll released on November 16 indicate that 60% of Americans think the U.S. Supreme Court should uphold Roe v. Wade. Americans should be appalled by these results.

  • Pray that we might know their names: Uniting in prayer for Dobbs

    Abortion has torn our nation apart, but the power of God is stronger than evil. God can heal the brokenhearted, restore the destroyed, and mend the torn.
