Amicus brief of pro-life organizations supporting strong protection for pregnant workers from discrimination

    Mirror of Justice: The filing of the brief makes important statements that, I think, are noteworthy in our society polarized over the “life” issue and how to address it. In this, a variety of pro-life groups with different missions, who disagree on other things, have come together to emphasize that supporting pregnant women is a fundamentally pro-life position. I suspect that, in our polarized atmosphere, some people may be surprised that a bunch of pro-life groups have filed to support working women—so spread the news!

As a pro-life woman: Why I can’t go back to being “pro-choice” on abortion

    Life News: The pro-”choice” movement only promotes the choice to abort a child. It fights informed consent laws and laws to improve clinics’ safety. I find it misleading and oppressive. There is no “need” for abortion but there is a lucrative business and the eugenics mentality is alive. I will never go back because women deserve to be respected, to know all their options, to be supported when they find themselves pregnant and alone. Abortion is not simple or neutral and women shouldn’t be denied the right to know what they are getting into. All of us deserve to make choices we can live with.

Life, marriage, and family must be affirmed at UN General Assembly session

    Zenit: The General Assembly, fondly referred to as “the GA” by U.N. aficionados, is most known for bringing the leaders of the world together under one roof. But beyond this, the GA is responsible for the creation of several hundred documents outlining the position of Member States on a myriad of issues ranging from women’s rights to sustainable farming, and everything in between. Every year, a handful of these documents touch on controversial life and family issues. While the spotlight shines on the heads of state, the real excitement of the GA extends behind closed doors as country delegates battle over references to reproductive and sexual “rights.”

Children as consumer items: same-sex marriage won’t help us build a culture of life

    National Review: The fortunes of the main branches of American social conservatism are rapidly diverging. On the one hand, we are riding a wave of pro-life legislation sweeping across the nation. Dozens of pro-life laws have been passed in the states in just the past few years, and pro-life sentiment, especially among young people, is hovering around an all-time high. On the other hand, in the wake of United States v. Windsor, it seems that every week another state’s definition of marriage is being overturned by state or federal courts. Our cultural consensus in favor of the traditional definition of marriage has collapsed — most precipitously among young people.

Ray Rice, abortion, and being led about by the viscera

    RedState: But we humans are weird creatures. It is one thing to know, intellectually, that Ray Rice knocked a woman unconscious in a hotel elevator. It is another thing to actually see it happen. [...] This is, in essence, the reason our abortion policy has remained essentially static over the last 40 years in this country in spite of astonishing scientific advances in terms of understanding fetal development and our ability to move the viability window for premature children continually backwards.

Not just the pretty babies

    The Federalist: Being pro-life is about far more than can be captured in a well-lit Facebook image. It is about avoiding the many tempting promises of barbarity. Both sides in the abortion debate are aware the world is full of things that ought not to be. Babies should not be ill, dependent on tubes for survival, exposed to drugs or alcohol in utero, born into poverty in crime-infested neighborhoods, or rejected by their biological families.
