Alabama Eyeing Constitutional Amendment on Abortion

Alabama voters will decide whether to add anti-abortion language into the state constitution that would have the state recognize the "rights of unborn children" — language that could restrict abortion if the Supreme Court ever gives states more power to curtail access. The language does not limit access to abortion as long as Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a right to abortion, remains in place, but would become the state's top legal guidance if Roe is altered or overturned. Read more...

Indiana Court Asked to Review Abortion Law

With a markedly different makeup on the U.S. Supreme Court, Indiana officials are asking that the justices take up the case of a 2016 pro-life law that's been repeatedly blocked by lower courts. Before leaving the governorship to serve as Donald Trump's vice president, then-Gov. Mike Pence signed legislation banning abortions motivated specifically by a baby's race, sex, ethnicity, or potential disabilities. It also required abortionists to bury or cremate fetal remains rather than treating them as medical waste. Read more...

Court Allows Tennessee Amendment to Stand

The United States Supreme Court will not hear a challenge to a pro-life amendment to the Tennessee state constitution. Amendment 1 categorically excludes abortion rights from the state's constitution. The Supreme Court declined to admit an appeal on the matter in a decision released on Oct.1, the first day of the court's new session. Without further avenues of appeal, the amendment - which explicitly states that "nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion" - will stand. Read more...

Court Reinstates Missouri Abortion Restrictions

A federal appeals court handed pro-lifers a victory by reinstating a Missouri law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at local hospitals and abortion clinics to be set up as "ambulatory surgical centers." The 3-0 ruling by the U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court's injunction that prevented the law from going into effect. The decision could suspend abortion services in Columbia, Mo., and prevent a Kansas City clinic from regaining its license, Planned Parenthood officials said. Read more...

Judge Strikes Down St. Louis Ordinance

The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri has declared a city ordinance intended to make St. Louis a "Sanctuary City" for abortion to be unconstitutional and violates several Missouri state statutes, including the Missouri Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Judge Audrey Fleissig found that the ordinance violated the First Amendment rights of a pregnant women's home and the group of Catholic grade schools "to employ or house individuals who advocate for or perform abortions," practices that are contrary to the missions of both organizations.

Court Blocks Abortion-Funding Lawsuit

An Illinois appellate court has upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit filed to stop a law that'll expand Medicaid and state-employee group health insurance to cover abortions. A three-judge panel of the Fourth District Appellate Court ruled unanimously that a Sangamon County judge correctly dismissed the lawsuit filed by anti-abortion groups. The judge ruled in January that courts shouldn't intervene in General Assembly "political questions." Read more...

Judge Rules in Favor of Indiana Clinic

A judge has ruled in favor of an abortion chain seeking to open a clinic in Indiana but pro-life activists are vowing to fight the effort.

Jackie Appleman, executive director of Saint Joseph County Right to Life says the Indiana Department of Health denied the license request and Whole Woman's appealed and won a ruling last week.

Kaepernick Funds Radical Pro-Abortion Activism

This is the outfit that celebrated the 40thanniversary of Roe v. Wade with a bizarre sexualized tribute to the millions killed by abortion, called “Happy 40th Anniversary, Baby”. Read more...

NY Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers Under Attack

The Big Apple and state of New York have been targeting pro-life pregnancy centers with laws that – for the most part – have been declared unconstitutional, but that has not slowed down the assault. The latest assault is a bill proposed by Assemblyman Deborah Glick. The bill – if passed – would require information for a database to find ways to further cripple the centers. Read more...

Video: The Reality of 'Safe and Legal'

There’s little real difference between “professional” abortions and the abortion lobby’s proverbial back alleys, according to a new video tour of a now-defunct abortion facility. Pro-life activist Lauren Handy released a video on Facebook Wednesday touring the National Abortion Holocaust Memorial in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The building used to be an abortion facility called Delta Women's Clinic, where almost 30,000 babies are estimated to have been killed from 1986 until 1994. Read more...
