    FRC ^ | October 5, 2007
    Family Research Council recognizes and respects the inherent dignity of every human life from conception (whether by natural or artificial means) until death. FRC desires to help build a culture of life, holding that all human life is a gift to be treasured. The life of every human being is an intrinsic good, not something whose value is conditional upon its usefulness to others or to the state.Threats to human life include abortion, euthanasia, and many new forms of biotechnology. However, human beings need not prove their moral worth by demonstrating sentience, or self-awareness, or a certain level of cognitive...

Well, except to support the child in the lifestyle he/she wants and to take the blame for every mistake he makes and every problem he has. Not only has the Supreme Court of the United States declared that young girls have the right to get an abortion, if the state has the audacity to require the parents know of what their daughter has planned, the state must also provide for a judge to declare the parents...

    Analyzing the Effects of State Legislation on the Incidence of Abortion During the 1990s by Michael J. New, Ph.D. Center for Data Analysis Report #04-01   January 21, 2004 | | The 1990s saw both the election and re-election of a "pro-choice" President.1 However, the "pro-life" movement made considerable gains at the state and local levels. Survey data indicate that by the end of the decade, more people supported restrictions on abortion and fewer supported discretionary abortion.2Meanwhile, the actual number of abortions declined during the decade. For the 46 states reporting data to the Centers for Disease Control and...
