    FULL TITLE: Clarke D Forsythe describes at length why legal abortion deaths do not make it into CDC and other statistics Clarke D Forsythe, in his excellent book Abuse of Discretion: the inside Story of Roe Versus Wade (buy the book on Amazon here) explains at length why legal abortion deaths and injuries do not make it into the published statistics. “Abortion injuries and deaths are washed out of the US public health system through a series of filters. The first filter is the clinics. Clinics do not take responsibility for injuries if they can avoid it. Standard procedure for...

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the following statement in support of the 2015 March for Life: Today thousands of students, families, and church communities have traveled to Washington to march for life and lift up our nation in prayer. “Forty-two years ago, Roe v.

We are filled with grief for the nearly 57 million souls who will never have a chance to become the next teachers, artists, entrepreneurs, and heroes. “This anniversary marks a shadow in our nation’s history,...

    I will never forget the first ultrasound of my unborn child. Expecting an idle smudge on a grainy screen, my wife and I were greeted by a hyperactive baby, all four flailing limbs foiling the doctor’s attempt at accurate measurement. Our child was beautiful, and very much alive. This week marks the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and across the country pro-lifers gather to profess the humanity of unborn children. However, as Brennan Manning noted in The Ragamuffin Gospel, “the danger of the pro-life position… is that it can be frighteningly selective.” Recent events provide repeated and disturbing evidence...

    As we observe the sad forty-second anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that overturned all state laws banning abortions and effectively served as a judicial death warrant for tens of millions of innocents, I think it is appropriate to pay tribute to the two dissenting Justices, Byron White, a Democrat, and William Rehnquist, a Republican. Here are the texts of their dissents: MR. JUSTICE WHITE, with whom MR. JUSTICE REHNQUIST joins, dissenting. At the heart of the controversy in these cases are those recurring pregnancies that pose no danger whatsoever to the life or health of the...

    There are times when words simply cannot describe what is unfolding in history. January 22nd marks the 42nd anniversary of legalized abortion in America. What this means is that millions upon millions of unborn children have paid the price for the lie of “pro-choice” and “reproductive rights” with their lives. 55 MILLION 56 MILLION 57 MILLION There is probably no way to know the complete body count. It is beyond words to fathom what this number represents. Each child – a gift sent to earth from Heaven- snuffed out on the alter of convenience and “women’s rights.” Tragedy? Perhaps… Merriam...

    s liberals excoriate Republican Congressman Steve Scalise for speaking to a group with a reported connection to David Duke, former KKK member, I’m reminded today—on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade—of a moment that liberals will never dare acknowledge: a 1926 speech to the KKK by one of their most revered ideological darlings, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. Unlike Scalise, Sanger did not unwittingly speak to a group with a link (direct or indirect) to the KKK through a member. No, Margaret knowingly went directly to the Real McCoy—straight to the dragon’s mouth. In May 1926, a hopeful spring day,...

    This level of incompetence and cowardice should alarm us all. If Republicans can’t pass wildly popular legislation protecting innocent unborn children, what’s going to happen when they face difficult legislative battles? It’s best to view this as a very simple test for House Republicans. A test they failed miserably. In an essay at National Affairs, Michael Needham looks at the contrast between the grassroots and party establishment. He talks about the fight over the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank, a fund for corporate welfare. The establishment fought against the grassroots tooth and nail in order to keep the bank.

    Today the Church in the United States observes a day of penance on the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court Decision that deprived children in their mother’s womb of a human right so foundational that its denial precipitates an unraveling of all other rights that are necessary for a civil society to ensure human flourishing. This foundational right is the right to life. Penitential practices are a manifestation of contrition for sin and exhibit a conscience enlivened by the virtues of faith, hope and love. Penance displays that a person is willing to acknowledge what has been done and what...

    The United States marks 42 years of legalized abortion in all fifty states at any time for any reason throughout pregnancy on January 22nd, the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Since that time, there have been approximately 57,762,169 abortions that have destroyed the lives of unborn children. How is that number calculated?

The House is planning to vote on the bill Thursday, the anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court abortion case, Roe v.

    As both an active member of the pro-life movement and a law student, I am frequently confronted with the fact that the vast majority of activists on both sides of the abortion debate have many misconceptions about what Roe v. Wade actually says about the legality of abortion. Most of this arises from the fact that they have not read the case themselves, or if they did read it, they were unable to understand it due to a lack of legal training. My goal is to attempt to clear up four of the most common myths surrounding Roe v. Wade,...

A future where we go back to an America where preborn children are protected members of our society and, yet, move forward into an America that seeks to really help those women facing an unplanned, crisis pregnancy, ensuring she has...

    Given the trends seen in recent national reports, National Right to Life now believes that there have been over 56 million abortions since 1973. One critical piece of evidence in that calculation arrived in November of 2013, when the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported its latest national figures. It was important to find out whether the drop in abortions for 2009 seen by the CDC–4.6%–would continue in 2010. If it dropped again, we’d have some confidence that the 2009 figure wasn’t just some odd statistical aberration, that there really was some real and significant decline. It did. As...

American University political science professor Karen O'Connor, who supports abortion-on-demand, told ABC News, "I think we are going to see Roe overturned." “I'm thinking 2015," she added. O'Connor said the number of cases “pending in the circuit court” makes it more likely the justices will take up a challenge...

    Many commentators on United States v.

Don't believe it for a minute. The contest is over. Windsor is a stealth Roe. It showed that five justices regard the arguments in behalf of traditional marriage to be nothing more than bigotry. It also revealed that those five will not be constrained by law or tradition from imposing their views on the nation at the next opportunity. Chief Justice Roberts attempted to limit the damage,...

At the same time, it pointedly declined to declare that there is a constitutional right to same-sex marriage. There were victories and setbacks here for political and cultural conservatives and for political and cultural liberals. Only one of the four cases was decided by the familiar...

    There is a 43-year-old woman, born in Texas, who should be dead right now. In fact, she should have never been born. Forty years ago, the Supreme Court decided that the Texas law that prevented Jane Roe from ending the life of her unborn daughter was unconstitutional. But by the time the Supreme Court issued its decision in 1973, http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1258350/posts she had already been born and adopted by a family—likely not knowing that all that ink spilled in Roe v.

As I sat and watched his recent press conference, I finally understood his opposition to the Iraq War. It seems he and the late President Hussein are kindred spirits who share more than just a name. They share a sick penchant for using children as human shields in the middle of war. And make no mistake about it; America is currently at war with itself on many different fronts. As I sat and watched Obama surrounded by...

    This week is the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion in America. Since the decision, over 56 million innocent children have been aborted, an average of 3,835 lives per day. That’s worth repeating: Every day around 3,835 innocent lives are taken by abortion, higher than any other cause, and yet this sad fact is known by so few of the public or rarely reported by the media. In contrast, consider the public attention brought to Adam Lanza’s shooting spree in Newtown, Connecticut just over a month ago that took the lives of...

Dr. Adams will then go to Minneapolis to speak at the Minnesota Youth for Life Conference on January 21. The all-day conference will be at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. A former student recently emailed that she was disappointed that I had gotten so heavily involved with the student pro-life movement in recent years. She said she could remember a...

    The number forty has great significance in the Bible. Perhaps best known is the forty years that the Israelites were condemned to wander in the desert before being permitted entry into the Promised Land. Maybe this mystical quantity will bear significance as we note, this month, the fortieth year since the Roe v Wade decision legalized abortion in America. Forty years we have lived with the silent, and sometimes not so silent, holocaust in our midst as the lives of 55 million innocent and unborn children have been killed, plucked from their journey to enter this world. Who were they?...

    Most of us would be honored to have our name become a verb. Especially those of us in public life. But that is not how Judge Robert H. Bork got into the dictionary. He was "borked" when President Reagan nominated him to the U.S. Supreme Court. No sooner had the announcement been made by the White House on July 1, 1987, than Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) raced to the Senate floor to denounce the distinguished judge and former Yale Law Professor. In Robert Bork's America, Kennedy roared, blacks would once again sit in the back of the bus, rogue...
  • Republicans’ Easy Way to Defuse Social Issues

    This is part two of a column on the state of Republicanism and how they should move forward.In 1973, the Supreme Court issued one of their worst rulings ever in Roe v. Wade. Largely made from “whole cloth,” the ruling has started a 40-year fight over abortion that unnecessarily has divided this country. If Republican principles were in place on this issue, then there would be a heated discussion; but the core of the fight would be defused and the issue would be handled at the state level where it properly belongs and where other issues should be handled. Without...

    If your planning on celebrating Independence Day today, I would suggest you do so as if you were attending a wake. After all, every reason we used to celebrate it has been destroyed. All those who died to defend the flag have died in vain, and those still fighting must ask themselves what are they putting their lives on the line for. I suggest they are now fighting for a future of rulers of America that will be managing the decline. I used to celebrate the 4th of July by enjoying the freedom I was given by those who...

    Author’s note: This column is based on a metaphor I stole from Scott Klusendorf. As such, I owe him and Oliva V and a trip to the Texas Roadhouse.Like most of you, I try to be financially responsible. For example, I pay my IRS estimated pre-payments well in advance. I also make conservative estimates of what I owe the IRS. Therefore, I usually end up getting a nice tax refund. When I get it back, I buy something I really don’t need. Two years ago, it was a Fender Telecaster. Last year, it was a Fender Stratocaster. I don’t mind...

    Someone once asked me whether I would abort Adolf Hitler if I knew in advance he would try to launch a Holocaust against millions of Jews. I said I would not. That is because aborting Hitler would not have prevented the Holocaust. It would have justified it. The killing of millions of innocents does not begin with the killing of one innocent. It begins with the idea that in the larger scheme of things it is permissible to kill one innocent person. The movie Judgment in Nuremburg (1961) shows that, even in Hollywood, Americans once appreciated this important principle. The...

    With the nation embroiled in intense debate over spending and the economy, social issues have taken a backseat to fiscal battles. However, despite the lack of visibility, numerous abortion related campaigns are ongoing around the nation. After decades of futile attempts to stack the Supreme Court with anti-abortion judges, opponents of abortion have switched tactics and are pursuing a variety of legislative strategies at the state level. Common strategies are the limiting of the time period when an abortion can be performed, and attempts to influence the mother to keep the fetus. South Dakota has just passed a law that...
  • Going Down To The Capital For The March For Life

    Tomorrow, St Joseph the Worker Parish, my home parish, will be taking a busload of us including our pastor to Washington DC for the Annual March for Life. Just one of the reasons  I love this march is that we get to see the Church at its best. Young high school and college students, families with small children and nuns and priests from every order marching for life. The Franciscans in their moccasins without socks in 29 degrees, Mother Teresa's Missionary's of Charity  with their white and blue striped saris, you name them, they will be there.    Many different...
