Leaders of top pro-life groups are unanimous in their response to last nights presidential election, vowing to not give up fighting abortion and the funding of the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
Now is not the time to give up, but instead, I hope I can count on you to join me in fighting the Presidents radical pro-abortion agenda for the next four years, said Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List. Together, we will win this fight. Dont lose faith. Unborn children and women are counting on us. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Top prolife activists say Mitt Romney should have pressed pro-life issues more on the campaign trail than he did drawing a starker contrast between his pro-life views and President Barack Obamas abortion record.
Barack Obamas re-election is a tragedy for the country. It is also the latest in a series of missed opportunities for the Republican Party. Voters overwhelmingly disagree with the extreme positions on abortion taken by President Obama and the Democrats, said Marjorie Dannenfelser, head of the Susan B. Anthony List. Mitt Romney, the Republican Party, and their Super PAC allies never highlighted this vulnerability, despite the fact that our polling of likely swing voters revealed it to be a persuasive line of argument. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
The SBA List and our pro-life mission certainly had some bright spots last night with the election of a 2nd prolife woman in the Senate, Deb Fischer, as well as the retaining of Michele Bachmann, who was heavily targeted by the left, and the return of Steve King.
The Planned Parenthood abortion business is jubilant about another four years of the United States under the helm of the most pro-abortion president in history. Although Planned Parenthood credits womens issues, one womens group says thats not why Obama won.
New polling data from the Faith and Freedom Coalition, headed by pro-life advocate Ralph Reed, shows that the evangelical turnout was up in 2012 for Mitt Romney compared to the 2008 numbers for John McCain.
The data makes it appear other reasons are behind the Romney loss to pro-abortion President Barack Obama last night than a failure of social conservative voters to support him. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Pro-Lifers, Dont Despair the Election, God is in Control
Im sure that most of you, as I am, are a little shell-shocked at the result of the election. I was one of those optimists who believed we could elect a pro-life president and maybe even put a pro-life majority in place in the Senate.
Things didnt turn out as we wanted, but it wasnt for lack of trying. Pro-lifers all over the country did everything possible, going above and beyond the almost-unimaginable, putting their hearts and souls into this campaign. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Despite a presidency that was based on attacks on Catholics, with aggressive promotion of abortion and attacks on religious liberty via the HHS mandate, President Barack Obama received the majority of Catholic votes on Tuesday.
The Vatican has a message for President Barack Obama: congratulations on your re-election but get your act together on the issue of abortion and curtailing religious freedoms. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Silver Lining: Pro-Life Candidates for Governor Win Victories
Four pro-life candidates won election as Governor this year. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
We Must Continue Fighting the Obama HHS-Abortion Mandate
Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Alan Sears tells pro-life advocates that they should expect more battles with the Obama administration over the controversial HHS mandate that forces religious employers to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Pro-Life Group Demands Candidate Training After Akin Rape Dustup
One of the top pro-life political groups says it will change the way it endorses candidates following the national dustup over comments Missouri Republican candidate Todd Akin made during a Senate debate. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Woman Rushed to Hospital After Botched 22-Week Abortion
New information is coming to light today about a woman in Cleveland, Ohio who was recently rushed to the hospital followed a botched 22-week abortion at local abortion facility. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Planned Parenthood Unveils New Logo in Election Victory
The Planned Parenthood abortion business celebrated the victory of its presidential candidate Barack Obama by quietly unveiling two new logos. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
I am defined, in some part at least, by the death of my extremely premature sons. My life changed during those days, waiting for their death and praying for them to live, and nothing was the same afterwards. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Planned Parenthood Tells Teenagers Its Great to be a Slut
Theres tons of ways that people define slut. Most, though, are fd up. Thats the lead in for an MTV video targeting teens and tweens on Planned Parenthoods Info for Teens Facebook page. This denigrating instructional video takes place in a classroom setting and encourages young girls to become promiscuous and emphasizes that others should respect them because, as sluts, they are confident in their sexuality.. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Massachusetts Fails to Become Third to Legalize Assisted Suicide
A coalition of pro-life groups, churches, disability rights advocates and doctors and nurses joined forces to defeat an effort by euthanasia proponents to make Massachusetts the third state to legalize assisted suicide. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
Why The Assisted Suicide Measure Lost in Massachusetts
Massachusetts voters have held the culture of death at bay for at least a little while longer in the USA, depriving backers of assisted suicide with an Eastern Front from which to spread the poison. Its a good result that I dont think could be duplicated in Europe. Much can be learned. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/
