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.

Thomas Glessner in Townhall: “Biden’s Pro-Abortion SCOTUS Pick Will Not Jeopardize Roe Reversal”

“The retirement of Justice Stephen Breyer gives President Biden a significant opportunity to leave a true legacy upon the nation. As Biden begins his interview process, it is clear he is committed to appointing a far-left ideologue to replace Breyer. However, this effort will not impact the current ideological divide on the high court or the chance to reverse Roe v. Wade.” Read the full article in Townhall.

Thomas Glessner in Townhall: “The Left’s Love For Abortion Blinds It To Abortion Alternatives”

“U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett drew the ire of abortion advocates with a comment during oral arguments for the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case in December. The case, to be decided this year, may spell the end of Roe v. Wade and its policy of abortion-on-demand. Recent responses from abortion proponents show how blind they are to the compelling realities of abortion alternatives. Barrett, an adoptive mother herself, asked if a woman who lacks access to abortion is […]
