Strategy

The town that started the Civil War

By Gualberto Garcia Jones, Esq. — In the 1850s, Christians in Oberlin, Ohio, were motivated by the fear of God’s just judgment to defy the federal government and refuse to cooperate with the unjust Fugitive Slave Act.

By Sarah Quale — U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson’s decision to block Alabama’s abortion law was the last in a series of court injunctions that stopped all state-level first-trimester abortion restrictions passed in the last year.

Personhood: Multiple fronts on the 21st-century battleground

By Sarah Quale — Personhood is a legal strategy, a moral philosophy, and a cultural movement that’s rooted in both faith and reason. Personhood is our only consistent defense against all direct attacks on human life and human dignity that have happened, are happening, and will happen in the future. So what are those attacks, specifically? What does personhood look like on the ground? Is it practical, and does it have any chance of actually advancing in America?

Pre-born children should be counted as persons in the 2020 census

By guest blogger Bill O’Brien— Next year, the U.S. Census Bureau, as it does every 10 years, will attempt to count virtually every person living in the United States as of Census Day, which is April 1, 2020.

Answering President Trump’s call to unite the pro-life movement

By Gualberto Garcia Jones, Esq.,— Last weekend, President Trump tweeted out his personal position on abortion. Many in the pro-life movement, including the Personhood Alliance, were disappointed that the president endorsed the continued killing of innocent children conceived in rape and incest. However, the president also called for unity among pro-lifers. I believe that unity can be achieved by actually allowing the moral vs. political conflict to continue. Allow me to explain…

What marijuana and sanctuary cities can teach the pro-life movement

Originally published on LifeSiteNews, March 27, 2018, by Gualberto Garcia Jones, Esq. — On March 23rd, President Donald Trump signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018, also known as the omnibus budget deal.  The budget funded Planned Parenthood, with no conscience protections for pro-lifers.  It also funded “sanctuary cities” that openly defy federal immigration law and defunded the Justice Department’s ability to enforce federal marijuana laws.  What I find most interesting about this budget boondoggle is what it tells us in the pro-life movement about the real political power of defiance.
