Why Abortion Isn’t Just a Political Issue: the Profound Significance of Oregon’s New Law Mandating Taxpayer Funded Elective Abortions

Sadly, my home state of Oregon, which I love in so many ways, legalized abortion four years before Roe v. Wade, and we were the first state, in fact the first principality in the world to legalize physician assisted suicide. As if this weren’t enough for Oregon to be famous for, last month, Governor Kate Brown signed House Bill 3391, making Oregon the only state in the U.S. without any laws that restrict or limit abortion, and one of only a handful of states that chooses to use taxpayer money to pay for elective abortions. 

Why Every Prolife Church in Oregon Should Support the Petition to Stop Taxpayer Funding for Abortion

There’s no sense in which the killing of children is a marginal issue that Scripture is indifferent to!

Perspectives After Attending the #DefundPP Rally

On Saturday, February 11, thousands of prolifers gathered nationwide for Defund Planned Parenthood rallies. Altogether, 228 rallies were held in 45 states.

A Teenage Girl’s Response to Teen Vogue’s “Post-Abortion Gift Guide”

An angry uterus heating pad, an F-U-terus pin, a box of chocolates, a girl power hat, a coloring book of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: these are some of the gifts recently suggested by Teen Vogue as ways that girls can show their “care” to teenage friends who just had abortions.

Trapped: A Short Film on Teen Unplanned Pregnancy

Most prolife films are short clips or movie length, and unfortunately, the short ones don’t allow viewers much time to experience the emotions or to ponder. This one, on the other hand, has a large amount of silence, allowing for contemplation. The fact that the air doesn’t get filled with words helps listeners draw their own conclusions based on the obvious facts.

Benjamin Watson at the 2017 March for Life

The 44th annual March for Life took place last Friday, January 27 in Washington, D.C. One of this year’s speakers at the rally was Baltimore Ravens tight end Ben Watson. I love this brother and so appreciate his willingness to speak out on behalf of the unborn.
