Poll: Majority Rejects Abortion-on-Demand

According to the most recent survey, as many Americans identify as "pro-life" (48 percent) as "pro-choice" (48 percent). That's a big improvement from the results of Gallup's first poll on the issue back in the mid-1990s, when 56 percent identified themselves as "pro-choice," and only 33 percent claimed to be "pro-life." Even more importantly, more Americans now believe that abortion is morally wrong (48 percent) than believe it's morally acceptable (43 percent). Read more...

Why Was Pope Francis Silent?

While the world reeled at the alleged comments Pope Francis recently made on homosexuality, it also noticed the pontiff's deafening silence on Ireland's now-lost abortion referendum. Pope Francis allegedly told a male victim of priestly sex abuse that God "made" him gay and that's "okay," which made headlines around the world. The Vatican press office wouldn't confirm or deny the comment. Many have noted the Catholic Church's minimal role in the campaign to save the pro-life Eighth Amendment, partly because the homosexual sex abuse crisis was so bad in Ireland that it shattered the Church's credibility.

Planned Parenthood Challenges Iowa Law

A lawsuit challenging the nation's most restrictive abortion law was filed in Iowa, a state that for years was largely left out of Republican efforts to overturn abortion protections and where the Democratic attorney general has refused to defend the law. If allowed to take effect, the law would ban most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, around the sixth week of pregnancy, a point when, abortion-rights groups say, many women don't know that they are pregnant.
