Draft Roe v Wade decision falls short

By David Bjornstrom, Esq. — It is encouraging to hear that the Supreme Court, in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson’s Women’s Health Organization, may finally overturn Roe v Wade. However, that will not be enough to protect the pre-born, because the Court’s decision just transfers the abortion issue to the states where, in many cases, abortion will be expanded.

COVID vaccines: Purging pro-life Christians from the U.S. military

By Deborah Stilt — Across America, thousands of pro-life Christian service members are being persecuted and purged from the military for refusing to accept an abortion-derived COVID vaccine.

Yes, Novavax used HEK293, an aborted fetal cell line

By Sarah Quale Despite Novavax’s public statements that its COVID-19 vaccine does not have any connection to abortion-derived cell lines, evidence from a private letter and Novavax’s own published study shows that the HEK293 aborted fetal cell line was used in the testing phase.

Making sense of the COVID vaccine mandate hearing at SCOTUS

The good, bad, and ugly of the Texas Heartbeat Act

Is Roe v Wade on a Collision Course?

By David Bjornstrom — The U.S. Supreme Court’s viability standard in Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood v Casey will be tested this fall in the Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization case. The Dobbs case involves a Mississippi law banning most abortions after 15 weeks.

Death via Zoom: Assisted suicide and telehealth

By Deborah Stilt — The CONNECT for Health Act of 2021 proposes expanding the use of telehealth across America. While this will make healthcare more accessible, imprecise language in the legislation may enable assisted suicide remotely, even in states where it’s illegal, putting an already vulnerable population at further risk.

Elder-neglect and the push for assisted suicide during COVID-19

By Deborah Stilt — In the wake of the COVID-19 health crisis, efforts to legalize assisted suicide have increased across America, and passive euthanasia is on the rise. Dangerous COVID-19 policies have brought thousands of deaths in long-term care facilities. What kind of message does this send our elderly, disabled, and medically vulnerable and those who care for them?

Abortion Is Unconstitutional and Not a State Issue

By David Bjornstrom — We concede too much in assuming that, if Roe vs. Wade is overturned, the individual states should decide whether or not to outlaw abortion. If unborn babies are “persons,” as modern science shows, the 14th Amendment outlaws abortion, since abortion deprives a class of persons of their life without due process of law and without equal protection. It is time to reclaim the 14th Amendment for the unborn.

“It Cuts Like a Knife”: The Dismissal of Mary Wagner’s case by the Canadian Supreme Court

By Dr. Charles Lugosi, SJD — Editor’s note: The Canadian Supreme Court has refused to hear a case launched by Mary Wagner, a pro-life activist who was arrested for engaging in an act to save the lives of unborn children at a Toronto abortion facility in 2012.

The Value Them Both amendment protects abortion in Kansas

By Deborah Stilt — The well-intentioned Value Them Both amendment in Kansas (HCR5003) is heading to the primary ballot, and if passed, will amend the Kansas constitution. But many don’t realize that this amendment fails to protect pre-born babies and their mothers and instead, expressly grants the ability to regulate abortion, further enshrining it into law. While HCR5003 greatly misses the mark, there is a solution that would, in fact, “value both”—a personhood amendment.

Before Roe, personhood had a solid legal foundation

By Daniel Gump — The budding science of embryology and the growing underground abortion industry helped form America’s first state-level criminal abortion laws in the early 1800s. But it was the American Medical Association, an educational campaign, and the Fourteenth Amendment that helped declare the personhood of pre-born children in the laws of 21 states and mark abortion as “a crime against persons.”

By Les Riley — The Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s appointment to the US Supreme Court are in full swing. Already, she is being attacked as a threat to so-called abortion rights and “a danger to women who desperately want children”—a reference to her purported views on IVF.

Vaccines in Colorado: Informed choice or forced mandate?

By Deborah Stilt — Under the guise of boosting school immunization rates, Colorado recently passed the Colorado Healthy Communities Act (SB20-163), which redefines vaccine exemptions and imposes new requirements on parents who choose not to vaccinate. As other states move in this direction, and as a COVID-19 vaccine nears, we must ask: How far can government mandate compliance without violating parents’ Constitutional rights? And what lies in store if citizens neglect to stand up for their rights?
