Incrementalism and Abortion, by Stephen P. White

The Political Versus Moral Realities of Abortion, by Auguste Meyrat

By Auguste Meyrat, Crisis Magazine – So how committed to abortion are Americans really?… This seems to be the burning question haunting the minds of pro-lifers right now. If we go by the recent referendums on abortion in reliably red states like Kansas or Ohio, then it seems like a majority of Americans really want the freedom to abort their unborn children. Recent polls in deep-red Florida, which will have the abortion issue on the ballot this November, already favor keeping abortion as an option. ….

By Emmy Griffin, Patriot Post – …comedian Bill Maher … went on to say: “I don’t understand the 15-week thing, or the Trump’s plan [sic] is, ‘Let’s leave it to the states.’ You mean, so killing babies is okay in some states?

Trump’s Abortion Stance: Half a Loaf or a Poison Pill? by John Zmirak

By John Zmirak, The Stream – What are we to make of Donald Trump’s statement on abortion? In a recent post on Truth Social, he adopted a 100% states-rights approach, opposing any federal legislation to allow or regulate it… Cold hard fact: Any federal legislation that could actually pass would leave unborn babies unprotected all the way through birth — and overturn good state laws like Florida’s. So there’s a sense in which Trump’s stance is the best we can hope for, the least bad outcome considering the GOP’s failure to profit electorally from Joe Biden’s disastrous presidency.

Trump’s Mixed Messaging On Abortion And IVF Plays Right Into Democrats’ Electoral Strategy, by Jordan Boyd

By Jordan Boyd, The Federalist – Former President Donald Trump has a history of criticizing heartbeat bills when they come from his political rivals, misrepresenting the Supreme Court’s landmark Dobbs v. Jackson decision, and wrongfully blaming Republicans’ 2022 midterm losses on their unapologetically pro-life positions.

Is the Republican Base Ready to Compromise on Abortion? by Nicole Russell

By Nicole Russell, Human Events – President Trump is the de facto GOP nominee. While pro-life, he supports a 16-week ban, not the usual six-week ban many pro-lifers do. Trump’s position may be attractive to some Independents and maybe even Democrats who see it as a reasonable and tenable compromise. However, it could endanger his base’s support, since they tend to favor more conservative positions. How will Trump’s abortion position affect his ardently evangelical base? ….

Made, Not Begotten: Why We Said “No!” to In Vitro Fertilization, by Nathanael Blake

By Nathanael Blake, Catholic World Report – We should not expect much courage from politicians, but Christians are called to bear witness to the truth, regardless of what opinion polls show. And the truth is that IVF is wrong… When my wife and I said “No” to in vitro fertilization, we assumed that we were rejecting our last hope of bearing children. Our years of infertility were unexplained and unresolved, despite the best efforts of the Catholic Ob/Gyn practice we had been going to. They had been thorough, and the physician who offered us a second opinion had nothing to add—except pushing us to try IVF.

Political Grandstanding on IVF Ignores Its Abuse of Human Dignity, by Michael Warsaw

By Michael Warsaw, Publisher’s Note, EWTN News – But there is a bigger issue at stake than winning elections or steering clear of the cancel culture: the truth… That truth begins with basic science. Whether the embryo is created through natural procreation or when sperm and egg are joined in a petri dish, it is a human being in the earliest of stages. This isn’t a religious doctrine or a conservative court’s opinion. It’s a biological fact, one that wouldn’t change even if 100% of Americans said otherwise.

Say the Word, Mr. President, and Tell the Truth About Abortion, by Susan Ciancio

By Susan Ciancio, Catholic World Report – Euphemisms are often used in polite society to make distasteful words more palatable. But sometimes they are spoken to hide the truth. Nowhere was this more evident than in President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address on March 7th, when he refused to say the word “abortion” and instead repeatedly referred to it as “reproductive freedom”… Biden, who claims to be “a practicing Catholic” who is “not big on abortion”, spent just a handful of minutes discussing abortion. Yet his words were carefully crafted to not only incite anger but to make it seem like those who oppose abortion have waged a war against women.

By Ryan Bomberger, LifeNews – These were the exact words President Biden spoke in an interview about the supremely wrong Roe decision that commercialized the killing of America’s Posterity. “I don’t like the Supreme Court decision on abortion,” Senator Biden explained. “I think it went too far.

By Father Roger Landry, EWTN News – The Feb. 16 ruling by the Supreme Court of Alabama, which by an 8-1 margin determined that cryogenically frozen human embryos are considered unborn children under Alabama law, has brought a long-awaited spotlight on the practices, lack of regulation and dearth of ethics in the in vitro fertilization (IVF) and assisted reproductive technology (ART) industries… The decision on the consolidated appeal by three families — the official title of which is an unwieldy 98 words — against the Center for Reproductive Medicine and Mobile Infirmary Medical Center allows their lawsuit to go forward.

The Truth About Alabama’s Ruling on IVF, by Ryan T. Anderson

Conversion to End Child Sacrifice: In Ancient Israel and Now, by Dr. Jeff Mirus

By Dr. Jeff Mirus, Catholic Culture – A friend recently sent me an article on the new “climate-change religion”, in which the author wondered whether human sacrifices would be the next step in warding off environmental disaster. Of course, there would be a certain logic at work if the rich and powerful begin killing off the poor and weak in order to restore environmental balance—on the assumption that the rich are more resource-sensitive than the poor, or at least can purchase the kinds of products that prove by their logos and EPA statements …..

Let an ‘Unwanted’ Child Have the Best Day With You Today, by Grazie Pozo Christie

By Grazie Pozo Christie, EWTN News – My own daughter was abandoned at birth, on a sidewalk in the depth of winter. She was wrapped in a yellow blanket and her umbilical cord was still attached.

Today she is a cheerful, pretty, teenage girl who delights us every day…. Although her story of “unwantedness” is specific to her, it is essentially the same tale told in different ways for every baby that has been labeled as unwanted and undesirable.

Msgr. Richard C. Antall: We Live Among Barbarians

By Msgr. Richard C. Antall, Crisis Magazine – Ohio’s Issue One, which enshrines abortion on demand—and up to nine months of pregnancy—has won. We know that it was an unequal struggle: the proponents of abortion outspent the opponents of this extremist abortion amendment by 3 to 1. Much of that money has been from out of state. The millionaires and celebrities who have intervened have been abortion advocates à outrance, and in our culture money and fame have deleterious influence in the population.

Ohio’s Catholic Bishops Condemn ‘Deeply Disturbing’ Passage of Abortion Amendment, by Louis Knuffke

Ohio Passes Issue 1 to Allow Killing Babies in Abortions Up to Birth, by Steven Ertelt 

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – Ohio voters approved Issue 1 (Tuesday night) after a monumental abortion battle in the Buckeye State. With 57 percent of the vote counted, Ohio voted 56% to 44% for Issue 1, which will make killing babies in abortions a so-called “right” in the state constitution… The result was not surprising given how abortion advocates bought the vote. Also, Ohio voters also voted today on a ballot measure to legalize marijuana. That very likely increased turnout of liberal voters who were more likely to vote for abortion.

Planned Parenthood Sugarcoats the Abortion Pill, by Samantha Harris

By Samantha Harris, The Population Research Institute – How it Works… The deception begins with the name itself.  The so-called “abortion pill” is actually two separate pills taken at different times.  These two pills have complicated names– Mifepristone (mi-fe-pri-stone) and Misoprostol (miso- pro-stol)–but straightforward effects: The first starves the baby while the second induces labor to expel it.

Democrats’ Abortion Activism Hinges On Lies And Deception, by Jordan Boyd

By Jordan Boyd, The Federalist – In Ohio, proponents of Issue 1 are working overtime to sell their extremist ballot measure, which would give the abortion industry a free pass to end unborn lives and trample on parents’ rights, as protecting the state’s abortion status quo before the rest of voters head to the polls on Nov. 7. The outside abortion activists who penned the constitutional amendment “don’t want you to know how barbaric it is” which is why they rely on undefined terms and loopholes ….

What Does Texas Have to Do With Ohio? by John M. Grondelski, Ph.D.

By John M. Grondelski, Ph.D., Catholic World Report – Issue One declares that “every individual has the right to make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions, including … abortion.” Now, when it comes to the unborn child, is he a “person” or not?… Issue One is unclear. Is he a “person” whose personhood doesn’t count, or at least is preempted by the decision to have an abortion? Or is he not a person at all? Is he a never a person, sometimes a person, or always a person? Issue One doesn’t answer that question, at least clearly.

OHIO: Issue 1 Would Allow Sex Changes on Minor Children Without Parents Even Knowing, Vote NO, by Ken Blackwell

By Ken Blackwell, LifeNews – Ohio’s Issue 1 referendum is a contentious proposal that will undoubtedly impact the future of abortion policy within Ohio for the foreseeable future.

George Soros Foundations Spending Millions for Ohio Pro-Abortion Campaign, Millions for Anti-Semitic Terror Groups, by Tom Gilson

By Tom Gilson, The Stream – Next Tuesday Ohio will be deciding on Issue 1, a despicably pro-abortion, anti-family proposed state constitutional amendment. George Soros, the world’s richest leftist string-puller, has poured multiple millions from outside the state into swaying the vote. It’s another case of Soros wanting people everywhere doing things his way… He and his foundations have contributed more than $12 million of the $40 million raised to push this despicable amendment on the state. If that doesn’t bother you as much as it does me as an Ohio resident, this might: The same Soros funding groups have donated even more heavily to anti-Israel, pro-Hamas groups.

Speaker Mike Johnson Makes Liberals Angry Because He’s a Married Pro-Life Christian, by Suzanne Bowdey

By Suzanne Bowdey, LifeNews – Of the 469 members of Congress who call themselves Christians, the country has decided to pick on one: Mike Johnson. Apparently, it’s not a crime to say you’re a person of faith — it’s a crime to act like one. Unfortunately, that irony is being driven home with ruthless clarity in a nation where a majority of the population (63%) not only identifies with the new speaker’s faith but continues to elect leaders (87% of the House and Senate) just like him.

Fr. Shenan J. Boquet: Britney Spears Brings the Brutal Reality of Abortion Into the Light

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet, Human Life International – So long as abortion activists can keep the public discussion of abortion restricted to their chosen language and talking points, they are safe.

Axios Attempts To Rebrand Abortion As ‘Reproductive Freedom’, by Tierin-Rose Mandelburg

By Tierin-Rose Mandelburg, MRC TV – Axios is at it again with its pro-abortion rhetoric… According to Axios, the pro-abortion movement is attempting to rebrand abortion-related vocabulary in a way that paints pro-lifers as controlling tyrants, with pro-choicers as superior side.

The Roots of Our Disrespect for Life, by Robert B. Greving

By Robert B. Greving, Crisis Magazine – October is “Respect Life” month. In the minds of most, “respect life” means fighting abortion, and it is left at that. To leave it there, though, is to pull out the blade of a weed but leave the root intact; and if you don’t pull out the root, the weed will grow back. The root, in this case, is the seldom—if ever—mentioned sin of contraception and the “contraceptive mentality” that it has spawned. It is the woolly mammoth in the room that is never talked about.

COMMENTARY: The Pro-Life Movement’s Achilles’ Heel, by Daniel and Nellie Kuebler

By Daniel and Nellie Kuebler, EWTN News – The state-level battles over abortion are exposing what decades of a widespread contraceptive mentality has done to the spiritual state of our nation… Last year’s Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was monumental. But throwing the abortion issue back to the states has not turned out to be the boon the pro-life movement hoped it would be. When the euphoria wore off, the difficulties of passing laws to defend unborn babies at the state level became increasingly apparent.

Catholic Bishops Need to Vocally Speak Out Against Abortion, by Christopher Manion Ph.D.

By Christopher Manion Ph.D., LifeNews – Today, the few pro-family advocates at the USCCB are squirreled away in a tiny office in the conference’s D.C. headquarters, while our bishops advocate an endless stream of political programs that lie in the realm that properly belongs to the laity… And what about the family? As Cardinal Dolan observed in 2012, America’s bishops’ have suffered from “laryngitis over speaking about issues of chastity and sexual morality” for years… The truths of Humanae Vitae are timeless. One hundred years ago, America’s bishops clearly and steadfastly defended them. Today they’ve mostly gone silent.

On the ‘Necessary Murder’, by John M. Grondelski

By John M. Grondelski, The Catholic Thing – Murders for socio-economic reasons pose no insurmountable barrier: just redefine “health” (as Proposition 1, soon to be voted on in Ohio does)… It’s only the bravest of the brave or the tenured partisans who are honest enough to admit abortion ends a life, but then argue that murder is “necessary” just because the child’s mother wants it. Most find such candor alienates the ambivalent middle and so prefer the “semantic gymnastics” required for the wholesale justification of abortion.

Fr. Shenan J. Boquet: Transgender Ideology and Parental Rights

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet, Human Life International – Can a school nurse give your child Tylenol for a headache without your permission?… The answer, of course, is “no.” Even if the “expert” school nurse thinks that your child would benefit from pain killers, she must get permission from you before she does so… To most people this is just common sense. After all, it doesn’t matter how much education the nurse has. She doesn’t know your child as well as you do. Besides, she doesn’t have final decision-making authority for your child. That’s your job!

Abp. Carlo Maria Vigano: “Any Ruler Who Wants to Oppose the New World Order” Must Work to End Abortion

By Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, Catholic Family News – Death. Only death. Death before birth. Death during life. Death before dying naturally. Significantly, those who are in favor of the death of the innocent — of children, the sick, the elderly — are against the death penalty.
