55,772,015 Abortions in America Since Roe vs. Wade in 1973
The United States marks 40 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 55,772,015 abortions that have destroyed the lives of unborn children.
An estimate published by the National Right to Life Committee this time in 2011 indicated there have been an estimated 54,559,615 abortions since the Supreme Court handed down its 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision allowing virtually unlimited abortions. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/18/55772015-abortions-in-america-since-roe-vs-wade-in-1973/
Obama Admin Trying to Force Company to Comply With HHS Mandate
The Obama Administration has filed an opening brief in Newland v. Sebelius, a case a company filed against the federal government seeking to opt out of the controversial HHS mandate.
The Obama brief has federal government arguing that mandating free abortion pills and birth control for private employees is a compelling government interest and that forcing Hercules Industries and its owners to provide such coverage against their religious beliefs does not impose a substantial burden on any exercise of religion by Hercules Industries or the Newlands." http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/18/obama-admin-trying-to-force-company-to-comply-with-hhs-mandate/
NARAL Gives Nation a D on Protecting Right to Abortion

Roe v. Wade at 40: We Must Never Give Up Fighting Abortion
Four decades ago, the Supreme Court of the United States handed down a decision that for many is a blot on American history as shameful as slavery. In the case of Roe v. Wade, justices ruled that a woman s right to privacy was broad enough to encompass a woman s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.
The decision was hailed as the decisive victory for advocates of the pro-choice cause. Many expected it to settle the issue permanently. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/18/roe-v-wade-at-40-we-must-never-give-up-fighting-abortion/

Coming Face to Face With a Baby I Saved From Abortion
Standing outside of an abortion clinic is not a pleasant experience. No matter how many friends or family members are there praying and helping to counsel women close by, the thought of innocent lives being ended in the building right behind you is inescapable. Sometimes it can seem like no one is even listening, and the people going into the clinic pass by pretending they don t notice you. But God is there reaching out to those women who will open their hearts to Him. That s when a miracle can happen, and a life can be saved.
Such is the experience of Joannes Bucher who came face-to-face with a child saved thanks to his pro-life activism. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/18/coming-face-to-face-with-a-baby-i-saved-from-abortion/
