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.

And what lies in store if citizens neglect to stand up for their rights?

The June Medical v. Russo distraction

Russo.

ACLU lawsuit shows wisdom in personhood’s alternative approach to sanctuary cities

By Sarah Quale — The pro-life sanctuary city movement in America includes multiple factions using different strategies to achieve the same goal—to protect pre-born children from abortion in our own communities, while exerting the constitutional right to self-governance by defying the unjust ruling of Roe v. Wade. However, a recent ACLU lawsuit against seven sanctuary cities in Texas is exposing the vulnerabilities in Texas’s strategy and showing the effectiveness of an alternative approach.

Above the law: America’s abortion-trafficking-pornography enterprise

By Sarah Quale — News has resurfaced about the 15-year-old girl in Florida who was repeatedly assaulted on videos that were uploaded to Pornhub and who was then taken for an abortion to cover up the crime.

Abortion and rape: Responding with facts and compassion

By Sarah Quale — What about abortion in cases of rape and incest? It’s an emotional question that’s often used to stump pro-lifers and force us to concede that, in some cases, abortion might actually be the right thing to do. But we need to ask ourselves: Is abortion really the compassionate solution we’re led to believe it is? What do the victims of sexual assault say? Are we listening to them? Are we protecting them? And finally, what can we do as individuals to advocate for them?

Being fully pro-life: A story of human value and disability

By guest author Deborah Stilt — Pro-life advocates care about the personhood of children, born and pre-born. We care about the personhood of the moms and the dads. We are horrified at the barbarism of abortion. The brutality; it sickens us. We say we want to end it. We pray, we march, we protest, and we vote. We tell the world that all lives matter. But do they really, even in the most difficult, heartbreaking circumstances?

Prenatal child support: The U.S. laws you’ve never heard about

By guest author Daniel Gump — Georgia’s LIFE Act received considerable media attention during the spring of 2019, but larger discussions surrounding abortion glossed over other provisions in the legislation, including prenatal child support requirements.
