Right to Life Michigan is proud to bring transparency and peace of mind despite the histrionics from Rachel Maddow who claimed that beginning today the women of Michigan will have to purchase rape insurance to provide for their abortions:
So what will happen when the Abortion Insurance Opt-Out law takes effect on March 14? The sun will rise and Michigan will join 23 other states that have opted out of abortion being a standard part in health care policies offered through the national health care exchanges. Michigan will also join nine other states that have opted out of abortion as a standard part of private health care plans.

Stand for Life does not intend to give up after the defeat of a 20-week abortion ban in Albuquerque, New Mexico, last November:
What is the answer to light a fire under the citizens of Albuquerque? Protest ABQ is one. This new movement spearheaded by Father Stephen Imbarrato is to protest not only at abortion facilities but at businesses and residences that have close ties to them. Abortion victim photography, or graphic images as some may call them, are a huge part of the protest, along with other pro-life text signs. Names of businesses affiliated with the abortion industry in Albuquerque are also highlighted in signs and literature.

Pro Life Action League reminds us that Good Friday is the day for the Way of the Cross. PLAL has all the tools you need to bring this event to your city.

We hear people say it was a “therapeutic” abortion, as if that word makes it okay. Now Wesley J. Smith opines on the issue of “rational” suicide. So if the psychiatrist has determined you are not mentally ill and can make rational decisions, go for it:
Psychiatrists are sometimes the last bastion of protection for despairing self-destructive people. To succeed, the life-saving mission must be unequivocal. But rational suicide proponents believe that when the doctor agrees that the desire to die is “rational,” it should be “permitted.” Imagine being told by your doctor that self-killing makes sense.
Pro Life in TN is proud that Tennessee Congresswomen Diane Black (right, top) and Marsha Blackburn (right, bottom) received special recognition from Susan B. Anthony List for their pro life legislation.

Pro Woman Pro Life lists a link to songs about abortion, some of which carry a subtle theme that need an explanation.

Amanda Marcotte may have gushed over the opening in Buffalo of a birth/abortion combo. calling it the “nation’s first.” But Real Choice takes exception, reminding us of previous combos and their not so stellar track record:
But the abortion/birthing combo in Buffalo is not breaking new ground. Others have dug that grave before, and buried many a child along with some mothers.
Secular Pro Life points to a recent poll indicating that only 36% of Millennials would describe themselves as religious as the reason why SPL is well situated to appeal to the this generation:
Because if you aren’t a “religious person,” prayer vigils, sermons, and sayings like, “Let God Plan Parenthood” are not going to get you involved in the pro-life movement. And heaven forbid (ha!) that you take such an approach with an average young Christian woman who is pregnant, terrified, and considering what looks like an “easy way out.” About 65% of abortions in the U.S. are performed on Christian mothers, according to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute.
