  • In an Election Year Like No Other, Where Are the William Wilberforces of Our Day?
    One of the greatest heroes in history, William Wilberforce was a member of the British Parliament in the late eighteenth century. During this time period, he was the leading voice against the institution of slavery in the British Empire. Wilberforce’s mission to end slavery and emancipate slaves throughout the British Empire was daunting and clearly appeared impossible to most. Slavery was an institution that fueled the economy of much of the British Empire. For Wilberforce […]
  • [Life News] Hillary Clinton Once Thought Abortion Should be “Safe, Legal and Rare.” Two No Longer Apply
    Almost 25 years ago, Bill and Hillary Clinton famously said abortion is a “fundamental constitutional right” that should be “safe, legal, and rare.”  In 2008, Hillary Clinton – who opposed the 2003 partial-birth abortion ban – repeated that this is her goal, saying she wanted abortion “safe, legal and rare, and by rare, I mean rare.” Opponents of abortion never believed the Clintons. Now, after receiving the first ever presidential endorsement from the nation’s premier […]
  • [Daily Caller] Pro-Choice For Thee, But Not For Me
    More than 40 years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled there is a constitutional right for women to have an abortion.  Since that time, approximately 60 million abortions have taken place, and the term pro-choice has dominated the landscape. Modest restrictive measures on abortion, such as parental notification for minors or bans when babies can survive outside the womb, are opposed by the abortion industry and its proponents. They loudly proclaim that such measures restrict a woman’s […]
  • Remembering Jack Wilke
    It was in the spring of 1979 when God jolted me out of my apathy and convicted me of the necessity to take a stand on the most controversial issue of the day — abortion. Then the only significant organized opposition to the growing numbers of abortions in America came from the Roman Catholic Church. This was what is now referred to as the “first wave” of the prolife movement. At the time it was […]
  • Albert Einstein and the Unalienable Right to Life
    The founding of the American Republic resides in these familiar words from our Declaration of Independence, which state: We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among these life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness The uniqueness of America is that it is a nation that was founded upon what was considered at the time to be a radical notion concerning […]
  • Kermit Gosnell murder trial
    The Gosnell Murder Trial and the Conscience of a Nation
    Abortion is simply the issue that will not go away. Despite the desires of many to ignore this very uncomfortable topic the reality of its brutality and injustice are becoming more apparent to the public.  Evidence of this is found in the recent conviction of Mr. Kermit Gosnell (who masquerades as a physician) for the first degree murder of three babies who survived his failed abortion attempts. The gruesome details of Gosnell’s abortion clinic, which […]

    Abortion is Not Safer for Women Than Childbirth
    Media outlets such as Time Magazine and Reuters have provided extensive coverage to an article recently published as “Original Research” and entitled, “The Comparative Safety of Legal Induced Abortion and Childbirth in the United States,” by Raymond and Grimes in the Feb, 2012 journal Obstetrics & Gynecology. The article concludes by stating: “Legal induced abortion is markedly safer than childbirth. The risk of death associated with childbirth is approximately 14 times higher than that with […]
