Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

'Adam and Eve after the Pill: Paradoxes of the Sexual Revolution' by Mary Eberstadt
Reviewed by Jeannie Hannemann, MA Celebrate Life
As I've traveled across the United States to speak about reclaiming God's plan for sexual health, I've often been asked if there is a book that covers the same information I present. I would respond that my material comes from a wide variety of books, studies, research projects, articles, anecdotal evidence, and other sources too numerous to name. Thus, I couldn't recommend just a single book. Well, now I can!
In Adam and Eve after the Pill: Paradoxes of the Sexual Revolution, Mary Eberstadt, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, has synthesized massive amounts of data into one compelling book that provides detailed documentation, allowing the reader to delve deeper. It's a masterpiece that merges vast amounts of research into a concise picture of the devastating effects of the birth control pill and the sexual revolution it unleashed. It unveils the lies of a culture that aims to replace sex that is both unitive and procreative with purely recreational sex.
[Friday], the North Dakota House of Representatives has passed the first personhood amendment in the United States, 57-35. SCR 4009 states, "the inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected." Every major prolife organization in North Dakota has joined forces to defend and endorse SCR 4009, including North Dakota Family Alliance, North Dakota Right to Life, Concerned Women for America North Dakota, North Dakota Life League [an American Life League Associate group], North Dakota Catholic Conference, and Personhood North Dakota. For the first time in United States history, a legislative body has approved a personhood amendment in both the House and the Senate. Now the amendment will be referred to the people of North Dakota for a vote.
What would you give to save a life? Laura Merriott, President of Save Unborn Life, is the March 2013 guest on Life Talk. After realizing that a large percentage of women aborting do so because of finances, Merriott began raising funds to help abortion minded women continue their pregnancies. In her interview with Mark Crutcher and his co-hosts, Merriott points out that Abolitionists purchased slaves in order to free them and Schindler's finances were used to free the Jews in Nazi Germany. Currently: Russia, Japan, Australia, and Italy are offering a baby bonus to women to bear children.
The Planned Parenthood office in Shelton closed Friday, which at least one local health official called a "huge loss" for the region. The Shelton center, at 415 Howe Ave., was closed because "we made a decision to focus on the continued upgrade of our other existing centers," said Jenny Carrillo, senior vice president of external affairs and strategic planning for Planned Parenthood of Southern New England. Carrillo said the Shelton office is the only Planned Parenthood site in Connecticut closing. The organization, which provides abortions and access to birth control along with many other health services, is sometimes a target for funding cuts, but Carrillo said no such concerns played a role in shuttering the Shelton office. Rather, she said, it was a strategic decision to close one of the organization's smaller offices.
