Thomas Glessner in Townhall: “Dobbs Means the End of the Beginning in the Abortion Wars”

“The Supreme Court of the United States has issued its long-awaited ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Center. This decision sends Roe v. Wade to the ash heaps of history – along with other discredited SCOTUS opinions such as Dred Scott v. Sandford, Plessy v. Ferguson and Korematsu v. United States. This decision does not end abortion, nor does it end the cultural war over the sanctity of life. It does, in the words of Winston Churchill, mark the ‘end of the beginning’ in this […]

Thomas Glessner in Townhall: “Pro-Abortion Advocates’ War Against Pro-Life Centers Reveals Their True Nature”

“The leak of the draft opinion from the Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Center, which overturns Roe v. Wade, brings out the true nature of the abortion movement. Recent actions show that it is not ‘pro-choice’ but radically ‘pro-abortion.’ A terrorist abortion group calling itself Jane’s Revenge claims responsibility for recent violence against at least 13 pro-life pregnancy centers. More is expected.” Read the full article in Townhall.

Thomas Glessner in Townhall: “The Death of Roe Will Bring Rebirth for the Culture of Life”

“The leak of Justice Alito’s draft opinion, which overturns Roe, appears to be the handwriting on the wall. This may be an indication that America has rejected the destructive agenda of the abortion industry.  The apparent downfall of Roe opens the door for the rebirth of a culture of life. Central to achieving this goal is the ongoing work of pro-life pregnancy centers and medical clinics. The love, care and support that families receive from these life-affirming nonprofits […]

Thomas Glessner in Townhall: “Pregnancy Centers Are the Answer to America’s Abortion Problem”

“The left’s proclamations that women will be victimized if Roe is overturned ignore the magnanimous work of nearly 3,000 pro-life pregnancy centers and medical clinics. The charitable work of these centers provides – free of charge – medical and non-medical services, hope and life-affirming options to mothers who feel alone and powerless. Pregnancy centers also provide expectant mothers with an abundance of essential resources ranging from diapers, vitamins, clothing and parenting classes to postpartum care. The long-term […]

Thomas Glessner in Townhall: “Biden Administration Fails to Honor Pro-life Women”

“March has been designated by the White House and others as Women’s History Month. Because of its endorsement of a radical pro-abortion agenda, the Biden administration fails to honor the work of pro-life female leaders. Instead, Biden issued a proclamation that clearly promotes abortion. In it, he asserts that his administration is working on expanding access to health care, ‘including reproductive health care,’ which is code for abortion-on-demand.” Read the full article in Townhall.
