These Tragedies Must End

An entire generation of Americans has never known an America without legalized abortion for any reason, at any stage of pregnancy or any age of the mother.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, more than 50 million lives have been aborted during this time – just under 1/6 of the current U.S. population. Countless men and women also have suffered the effects of abortions.

The numbers are staggering. It’s the greatest tragedy of our time.

This is the fight worth fighting. This is the cause for which we will never stop until we see preborn children’s lives and their mothers’ lives protected. It has never been nor will it ever be an option to stand aside and let this great tragedy continue.

This is a fight we can win. As the recent cover of Time shows, pro-lifers have been winning in our effort to save preborn children and women from the abortion industry. The pro-life movement is stronger than ever.

Join us to commemorate the loss of lives, support abortion alternatives, and stand with pro-life leaders at our rally on Tuesday. Let us come together in recognition of the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

Let’s send a powerful message that the prolife movement is stronger than ever, and we are committed to protecting life from its very beginning to its natural end.

Funding Abortion Providers: Prop 204’s Unintended Consequences

Center for Arizona Policy and Arizona Right to Life announced opposition to Proposition 204 today due to vague and ill-defined language contained in the proposition that could allow up to $100 million of taxpayer dollars to be given to abortion providers annually.

While the proposition has been billed as an education measure, it creates a $100 million slush fund that a governor could allocate for “family stability” and “basic needs” that “lead to family stability”. These terms are not clearly defined in the proposition, leaving the door open for chief executives to use this section to funnel monies to abortion providers. (more…)

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has blocked a key provision of HB 2036, known as the Mother’s Health and Safety Act, from taking effect.

Earlier this week, the Arizona District Court upheld the law and denied the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Center for Reproductive Rights’ request to stop it from taking effect.

Yet today, the Ninth Circuit Court ordered that the state couldn’t prohibit most abortions after 20 weeks of a pregnancy, pending oral arguments. (more…)
