    As the final weeks of the GOP-controlled Congress draw to a close, pro-life voters look on with great disappointment at the Republican politicians who failed to follow through on their most crucial promise: to defund Planned Parenthood. In about a month, Democrats will take over the House of Representatives and any hope of stripping the abortion giant of federal funding will pass away. With precious little time left in the lame-duck session, GOP congressional leaders have chosen to ignore the persistent urgings of pro-life leaders. Just last week, leaders from Live Action, Students for Life America, the Susan B. Anthony...

    After reviewing a lot of the news this morning, it just seems to me that among the many GOP winners last night, a large contingent of them were definitely pro-life, and made that clear about themselves. In that regard I think the election results were a win for our pro-life advocates. It does leave me curious about how many of our GOP losses were not clearly pro-life GOPers. I know of one case where that was not true, where our pro-life candidate John James lost to Stabenow (this time).

    FULL TITLE: Operation Rescue Urges Virginians to Dump Clinton Lackey in Favor of Pro-Life Corey Stewart for U.S. Senate Washington, DC – According to pundits and polls, the Senate race in Virginia is all but over, but Operation Rescue doesn’t buy it. Pro-life Republican Corey Stewart is challenging incumbent Democrat Sen. Tim Kaine, who was Hillary Clinton’s 2016 running mate. “We believe Kaine’s seat is vulnerable, despite all the suppression polling out there that is meant to make people believe this race is already over. Kaine represents the corrupt Clinton agenda of unrestricted abortion, higher taxes, and disastrous foreign policies...

    WASHINGTON –National Right to Life has endorsed pro-life Rep. Jim Renacci in Ohio’s U.S. Senate election. Renacci faces pro-abortion Senator Sherrod Brown on the November 6 ballot. “National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Jim Renacci, whose position on life reflects the true values of Ohio’s voters,” said Carol Tobias, National Right to Life president. “There is a stark contrast between Jim Renacci, who supports legal protection for unborn children, and Sherrod Brown, who supports abortion for any reason until birth.” Renacci co-sponsored and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act – legislation to protect unborn children by...

    On Friday, President Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services announced it would be updating the Title X regulation framework to better enforce the letter of the law, which outlaws federal funding for abortion, and to ensure that federal family planning dollars do not go to facilities that perform abortion. This new framework is based largely on President Reagan’s similar Title X regulation in 1988, which was challenged in court but eventually upheld by the Supreme Court in Rust v. Sullivan.However, up to now, the framework has never truly been enforced. President Clinton quickly ditched it as soon as he took...

    South Carolina's Senate has effectively killed a ban on almost all abortions in the state, voting early Friday morning to return the bill to committee. Five Republicans joined Democrats in the 24-21 vote, which came after Democrats held the Senate floor for an hours-long filibuster. The measure, now dead for this year, would only have allowed abortions in cases of rape, incest or risk of the mother's life.

    Thoughtful pro-life Americans know that our greatest victories for the cause of the unborn have been made possible, in part, with help from a brave group of pro-life Democrats who have stood tall against members of their own party to do right by their most vulnerable constituents. The time-honored Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding of elective abortions and is estimated to have saved more than two million lives, initially passed in 1976 with support from more than 100 House Democrats and continues to enjoy bipartisan support as a policy rider to annual spending bills.Years later, the Partial Birth Abortion...

    One of the country's largest pro-life groups has launched a campaign targeting Red State Democratic senators who helped kill legislation that would have cut down late term abortions.The Susan B. Anthony List, a group that supports pro-life politicians, has launched a digital campaign tying Democratic senators facing re-election in states that President Donald Trump carried in 2016 to support for late term abortions. On Monday, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D., Ohio), Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.), Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D., N.D.), and Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mt.) voted to block a 20-week abortion ban, while Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D., Wis.) and...

    Statement by President Donald J. Trump on the Senate’s Failure to Advance the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection ActRecently, when I addressed the 45th annual March for Life, I called on the Senate to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, important legislation that would protect our most vulnerable. It is disappointing that despite support from a bipartisan majority of U.S. Senators, this bill was blocked from further consideration. Scientific studies have demonstrated that babies in the womb feel pain at twenty weeks. The vote by the Senate rejects scientific fact and puts the United States out of the mainstream in...

    Last Thursday, the Trump administration came to the rescue of pro-life nurses and doctors who accuse hospital employers of pressuring them to perform abortions against their religion. A new Conscience and Religious Freedom office within the Department of Health and Human Services will hear complaints from anti-abortion medical personnel who claim they're getting fired or retaliated against for their beliefs. Abortion rights groups are protesting that this Trump administration initiative amounts to a frontal assault on a woman's right to choose. Abortion rights advocates say doctors and nurses who don't want to perform abortions should go into another line of...

    DONALD Trump will become the first US president to address an anti-abortion march in 45 years on Friday. The move highlights his shift in recent years from a supporter of women's access to abortion to, now, a powerful opponent. Trump is due to address the march in Washington via satellite from the White House Rose Garden on Friday afternoon. Ronald Reagan, Trump's fellow Republican, made supportive remarks to the march in 1987 via telephone, while George W. Bush, another Republican, twice did the same, in 2003 and 2004. "The President is committed to protecting the life of the unborn, and...

    President Trump and Vice President Pence signaled their support as thousands of anti-abortion activists rallied on the National Mall at the annual March for Life on Friday. “Under my administration, we will always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independence, and that is the right to life,” Trump said in the White House Rose Garden, in a speech that was broadcast to the marchers gathered near the Washington Monument. The march — which typically draws busloads of Catholic school students, a large contingent of evangelical Christians and poster-toting protesters of many persuasions — falls each year around...

    Hundreds of thousands of pro-life advocates are converging on Washington for Friday’s March for Life to mark 45 years of legal abortion in the United States, and proclaim that “Love Saves Lives.”  They gather to mourn some 60 million children killed in the womb since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling struck down abortion laws on January 22, 1973, and to renew their strength to continue the battle to secure protection for their country’s tiniest and most vulnerable citizens. “Choosing life is not always easy, but it is the loving, empowering, and self-sacrificial option,” March for Life president Jeanne...

    Donald Trump once described himself as “pro-choice in every respect.” On Thursday, his administration announced a new office to protect doctors and nurses who object to providing abortion services and other medical care on moral and religious grounds. Acting HHS Secretary Eric Hargan announced the new “Conscience and Religious Freedom” office, housed in the agency’s Civil Rights division, saying Trump had promised his administration “would vigorously uphold the rights of conscience and religious freedom. That promise is being kept today.” It’s a major victory for the pro-life movement, especially given Trump’s past comments about his support for abortion. Trump is...

    Suzanne Michelle can scarcely hold it in any longer when it comes to Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. At her Friday Bible study social, the Alabama Democrat is so troubled by Moore's alleged sexual misconduct involving teen girls that she's taken to applying Jesus's teachings to today's politics. Michelle, 34, wants to know how anyone, including right-leaning Christians she sometimes socializes with, can square the "biblical truths" by which they all abide with what she sees as a "single-issue voting population." "From people who are friends of mine, who have different political ideologies, they hold matters of the soul in...

    GADSDEN, Ala. — Given the tenor of the campaign in the state, one might think Doug Jones was a doctor performing abortions on young women, not a former prosecutor and now Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate. But Republicans have been merciless in attacking the man some of them have dubbed “Abortion Jones,” hoping to find reasons to rally a base they fear might stay home on Election Day rather than turn out for embattled Republican nominee Roy Moore. “I believe the people of Alabama do not understand how important this U.S. Senate race is in the future of the...
