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

Good news for pro-life advocates can be found in a recently released report from an abortion organization claiming that "independent [abortion] clinics are closing at an unprecedented rate." 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. A woman must complete the consultation in order to receive a prescription for the two pills to terminate her unborn baby. Read more...

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.

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.
