A new term for killing an unborn baby: "Fetal demise"

When the criminal proceedings concluded against Dynel Catrece Lane who cut a 7-month-old pre-born child, Aurora Wilkins, from her mother’s womb, it was determined that Wilkins Lane hadn’t really killed the unborn baby. The authorities ruled that it was fetal demise, as if the child had died on its own, the result of a miscarriage. This bizarre legal straight... Read more »

Where does Donald Trump stand on abortion?

It’s hard to tell. As on many issues, it’s difficult to nail him down. Question him directly and he fills the air with non sequiturs, answers to questions weren’t asked, personal attacks and other rip-rap until you’ve entirely forgotten the question. So, here is an article in lifenews.com that tries to sort it out: Republican... Read more »

More media bias against pro-life successes in Chicago

Yesterday I posted a story here that I thought important enough that readers, both progressives and conservatives, should know. It was the closing of the Albany Medical-Surgical Center Family Planning Associates abortion clinic after it was cited by the state for health and safety violations. It represented a victory for women who had been victimized by... Read more »

Pro-choicers as human life deniers

Hillary Clinton meet Donald Trump. You two have become two of the most unhinged presidential candidates in memory. No need to return to Trump’s loopy and narcissistic rants—they’ve been well documented by the progressive (i.e. mainstream) media. But Clinton’s recent crackpot utterance, not so much. Speaking to an outdoor organizing event of supporters at Case... Read more »

Illinois Senate Bill 1564, which rewrites the Health Care Right of Conscience Act, is designed to cripple or shut down  pregnancy resource centers, such as Aid for Women and the Women’s Center, that offer women alternatives to...

As always, in this Illinois election, don't trust Terry Cosgrove or Personal PAC

If you’re planning to vote in next week’s election as the fanatically pro-abortion Terry Cosgrove and Illinois Personal PAC recommend, you ought to watch this video. For more details on how this extremist pro-choice organization operates check out “Why can’t Terry Cosgrove tell us the Truth?” from the Illinois Opportunity Project. Oh, I know, I’ll be...

'It's not my boss's business'

Pro-choice groups are holding a “Not My Boss’s Business” rally (see below) to support the Obamacare (the ironically named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or ACA for those of you who still think that it’s a rousing success) edict that companies must pay for contraception and certain abortion procedures despite their religious (constitutionally protected...

Dick Durbin, Illinois' staunch pro-life senator

Does it surprise you that Democrat Richard Durbin, Illinois’ senior senator, was once adamantly pro life? That’s when he was running as a representative from a Downstate Illinois district, and before he ran for the Senate, where a switch to pro-choice position made him more electable. To suggest that Durbin bends with the wind to... Read more »

55 million dead Americans; do they matter?

America is missing at least 55 million people–that’s the estimated number of abortions performed in the United States since this historic Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions were handed down by the Supreme Court in 1973. They will be remembered on Sunday at the  “March for Life Chicago” that this year marks the... Read more »

Would Barack Obama have convicted Kermit Gosnell of murder?

When a Philadelphia jury convicted Dr. Kermit Gosnell of three counts of murder for killing three infants born alive after attempted abortions, the question jumped into my mind: Would Barack Obama have voted to convict Gosnell if the president had been on the jury. It’s a highly speculative question to which we’ll never get an... Read more »
