Lawsuit Hopes to Block Abortion Funding

Attorneys from the Thomas More Society are appealing to the Illinois Supreme Court to stop a state law requiring taxpayer funding of abortions for Medicaid recipients. According to the filing on behalf of hundreds of thousands of Illinois taxpayers, the funding for the law violates the state constitution's balanced budget requirement. In September 2018, an appellate court upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit against the funding for the law, previously known as "House Bill 40." Read more...

Ohio Bans Dismemberment Abortions

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed into law a measure that bans dismemberment abortions in the state. The common second trimester abortion procedure also known as dilation and evacuation (D&E) involves dilating the mother's cervix and then removing the baby's limbs using surgical instruments prior to extracting his or her remains from the uterus. Abortionists who perform dismemberment abortions in defiance of the law could face fourth-degree felony charges, including a jail sentence and fines. Read more...

Brett Kavanaugh Is Not the Pro-Life Savior

Given the announcement from the high court that they would decline a case concerning government funding of Planned Parenthood, conservatives shouldn't hold their breath for a Kavanaugh-led charge against the "right" to end unborn life. If they do, it's to their continued detriment. Along with Chief Justice John Roberts, Kavanaugh sided with the left-leaning justices, much to Republicans' correctly placed dismay. Read more...

Turning California Universities Into Abortion Factories

The bill would require, on and after January 1, 2023, each student health care services clinic on a California State University or University of California campus to offer abortion by medication techniques, as specified," the law reads.

Democrats Target New Mexico's Abortion Law

New Mexico would repeal its anti-abortion law one of just nine of its kind in the country under legislation Democratic lawmakers plan to pursue in the 2019 session. The state's criminal abortion law has been on the books for 50 years, but it's unenforceable now because of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade. Read more...

An Unintentional Pro-Life Message

Many media commentators are warning readers about a new Ohio bill because it could prevent women from obtaining abortions before they know they're pregnant. But in the process of doing so, they're making a pro-life message go viral: Abortion stops a beating heart. The Ohio Senate made national headlines for approving abortion legislation, known as the "heartbeat bill" or H.B. 258, which would ban the abortion of unborn babies with a detectable heartbeat. Republican Gov. John Kasich has promised to veto the bill. Read more...

2 States Approve Pro-Life Amendments

Pro-life supporters are cheering the results of two out of three abortion issues from the midterm election. Voters in both Alabama and West Virginia approved measures to change their state constitutions to effectively outlaw abortion. Still, the federal law making abortion legal takes precedence over any state laws. However, should Roe v. Wade be overturned, Alabama and West Virginia are now poised to immediately outlaw abortion and preclude women from suing over the ban. Read more...

Ohio Gov. Kasich 'Should Be Ashamed'

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a past and potentially-future Republican presidential candidate who bills himself as "pro-life," has renewed his opposition to pending legislation that would protect almost all pre-born babies in his state. The Ohio House voted 60 to 35 to pass House Bill 258, which bans abortions on any pre-born baby with a detectable heartbeat, except in cases of a "substantial and irreversible" physical threat to the mother. Any physician who violates the statute would face up to a year in prison. Read more...

Abortion Facility Closures Are on the Rise

The report was published by Abortion Care Network (ACN), whose stated mission is to "ensure access" to abortion. Since 2013, 148 independent abortion clinics have closed. Read more...

Pro-Life Groups Blast US Mail Abortions

A European organization known as Aid Access has now opened up another front in the abortion battle in the US. The company now offers American women doctor-prescribed abortion pills to induce abortion at home. The organization uses online consultations to determine if women seeking their services are healthy and who are less than nine weeks pregnant.

Netflix 'Big Mouth' Show Promoting Abortion

Vulgar and crude, the animated Big Mouth TV series on Netflix is now promoting Planned Parenthood with a special episode devoted to America's largest abortion provider. "This is more evidence that Netflix is becoming an evil media empire intent on corrupting its millions of young viewers with liberal ideology," said Jack Fonseca, a spokesman for Campaign Life Coalition, in an interview.

States Won't Give Up Abortion Pill Mandate

People can gain access to contraceptives and abortion pills without the government forcing religious and pro-life groups to provide them. But California, Delaware, Maryland, New York, and Virginia can't seem to accept that. These state governments are challenging federal regulations that protect religious and pro-life non-profits who conscientiously object to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) abortion pill mandate.
