Right to Life Rally

On January 25, George Grant will be the plenary speaker for the annual Tennessee Right to Life rally in downtown Nashville marking the 36th anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision. The event, held adjacent to Capitol Hill at the Bicentennial Mall from 2-3:30 PM, will also feature Dr. Richard Land and Bishop David Choby. Given the historic challenges to the sanctity of life posed by our new administration in Washington, this could very well be a pivotal moment for the pro-life movement and for our nation. Be sure to mark your calendars and plan to attend this peaceful, prayerful event.

Dangerous Days Ahead

According to Michael Brendan Dougherty writing in the American Conservative magazine, the Obama administration portends great danger to the pro-life movement. A tidal wave of change will soon hit the arenas of healthcare mandates, federal funding for abortion, and the composition of delegations to UN conferences. Indeed, everything pro-lifers have worked for since Roe is now at risk.

As Francis Stafford recently asserted, Obama’s “extremist anti-life platform is aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic. On November 4, 2008, America suffered a cultural earthquake.”

According to Dougherty, such pessimism is altogether warranted. "Obama’s commitment to serve pro-choice interests means that many of his larger agenda items will have abortion-related components. He has pledged that any healthcare reform package he proposes will require employer-provided plans to include coverage of abortion. He has also promised to overturn restrictions on money for fetal stem-cell research."

But, that is not all. "Obama has unambiguously pledged to appoint pro-Roe justices to the Supreme Court." And then there is the matter of foreign policy. Obama's pledge to reverse the Mexico City Policy “would greatly increase abortions around the world. It would also create a scenario in which American evangelicals and Catholics would be paying for abortion referrals through their tax dollars.”

All in all, Dougherty says, " there is plenty for us to do in the days ahead." Plenty indeed.

$1 Billion to Bail Out the Abortion Industry

Planned Parenthood and the other members of its pro-abortion coalition have petitioned president-elect Obama in a 55-page memo to bail-out it's already cash-rich industry with more than $1 Billion in new infanticide subsidies.

Its requests are not limited to major funding increases, however. They also include repealing policies that have "any limiting effect whatsoever" on organizations from being able to engage in abortion advocacy abroad and enshrining “reproductive health rights” in the legal system.

According to Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser these fiscal demands would actually increase federal spending for reproductive health and abortion by $1.5 billion. She calls it “the big abortion bail-out.”

If Obama's new administration acquiesces, as he has indicated it will, the next four years will herald a new level of global triage and genocide.

"Merry Christmas" Planned Parenthood-Style

Pre-paid Christmas gift cards from Planned Parenthood? Are you kidding?

Hardly. According to OneNewsNow, Planned Parenthood of Indiana, one of 99 nationwide affiliates of the infamous abortion conglomerate, has announced it is offering holiday vouchers for its "health care" services or for "the recipient's choice of birth control method," including abortions at its child-killing centers in Indianapolis, Merrillville and Bloomington.

The plan has been widely denounced for "making a mockery of the holiday season." Indeed, according to Mike Fichter, president and CEO of Indiana Right to Life, "The tragedy is that almost 6,000 fewer children will be celebrating a first Christmas this year because they were aborted in Planned Parenthood's Indiana clinics."

But apparently, the industry standard-bearers see little irony in promoting abortion amidst a season that exists solely because, "Unto us a child is born; unto us a Son is given."
