Missouri House Approves 20-Week Bill

Missouri is one step closer to protecting pain-capable unborn babies after the House moved forward with a bill to ban abortions at 20 weeks.

The bill prohibits abortions after 20 weeks except when there is a risk to the mother's life or loss of a major bodily function. The state House must vote again before the bill can move to the state Senate. Read more...

Ireland Sets Abortion Referendum Date for May 25

Ireland will hold a referendum on May 25 on whether or not to liberalize its abortion law, the first opportunity in 35 years to overhaul one of the world's strictest regimes that has long divided the once deeply Catholic nation. Voters will be asked if they wish to repeal an amendment to the constitution that was inserted following a 1983 referendum to enshrine the equal right to life of the mother and her unborn child, and to instead enable parliament to set the laws.

Pro-lifers Debunk 'Clearly Safe' Report

Pro-life advocates are criticizing a new paper claiming that abortion is so overwhelmingly “safe” that abortion-specific regulations in many states are “unnecessary.” The paper found that all four methods were “clearly safe.” Critics point out, however, that the paper ignored the safety of the preborn baby when making this claim.

Banning Abortion Will Save Millions

It is precisely a means to escape from the consequences of one’s choices: to be able to enjoy sexual intercourse without having to care for any children that result. It demands the power to destroy developing life that one’s own choices created, meaning the power to escape moral responsibility. Read more...

Pro-Choice Government Bullies Pro-Life Clinics

Government compels licensed centers to provide free advertisements for government-provided abortions. And government compels unlicensed centers to say — in large fonts, in as many as 13 languages, even on their own websites — that they do not have medical providers that the government itself says, by not requiring them to be licensed, are not necessary for the services they provide. The government’s obvious nasty purpose is to make the unlicensed centers’ clients unnecessarily uneasy. Read more...

Argentina's Prez Won't Veto Abortion

The pro-abortion movement in Argentina is gaining ground while the country’s “pro-life” president says he won’t stand in the way of pro-abortion legislation. Abortion is only legal in the Pope’s native country in cases of rape, fetal deformity, or when the mother’s life is in danger. Under current law, women seeking abortions must apply to a judge for permission. But up for a vote in Argentina’s Congress in five days is a proposed bill legalizing abortion on demand through the first 14 weeks of pregnancy. Read more...

SC Senate Considers Personhood Bill

A South Carolina senate panel voted in favor of a personhood bill last week, sending the measure to the state Senate on a 15-9 vote. The bill recognizes preborn babies as human beings starting at the moment of fertilization and would confer onto them “the constitutional right to due process of law and equal protection under the law,” as outlined in the South Carolina constitution. If passed, the law would effectively ban abortions in the state of South Carolina. Read more...
