Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life discusses a newly released study using “detailed medical records from Denmark” which shows that women face a higher risk of death from abortion than childbirth.
Bryan Kemper writes about the heartbreaking experience of losing a son to miscarriage two years ago, and his disappointment at the unsympathetic response (“it’s just a miscarriage”) of his pro-life church:
Even those who call themselves Christian or pro-life sometimes cannot 100% understand the full humanity, the full personhood of the child inside the womb. If we did, abortion would be over.
Suzy B reports that despite a defeat in court, former Ohio Rep. Steve Driehaus (pictured left) – who was voted out after his constituents were informed of his support for taxpayer-funded abortion – is continuing to pursue his lawsuit against the SBA List for “loss of livelihood”:
This isn’t just about a single lawsuit – this is about a politician using the federal court system to attempt to restrict our constitutional right to free speech and to prevent us from holding elected officials accountable for the way they vote.
Reflections of a Paralytic links to an article by Students for Lifepresident Kristan Hawkins, on why pro-lifers should embrace rather than reject the “anti-abortion” label.
ProWomanProLife points to statistics showing the Canadian population is aging and has been suffering a “birth dearth” since 1971, with abortion as a major contributing factor.

In 2007 and 2008, the same would bring the birthrate within a hair’s breadth of replacement rate.”
Secular ProLife says pro-life internships are available with both Feminists for Life and National Right to Life.
At Stand for Life, Bud Shaver discusses “the butterfly effect” of abortion on society. If, as the Talmud says, “Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world,” then how much chaos might be wrought by more than 55 million abortions?
A Voice for Hope shares video of pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson(who gave this year’s National Prayer Breakfast keynote address) speaking on why he became pro-life:
