Pro-Life

This website used to be dedicated to promoting abortion. Abortion is probably the worst tragedy in todays world by a long shot. Of course our world is full of injustice and cruelty, but abortion definitely takes the cake  as the worst.

There are many reasons why but chief among them is the fact that abortion ends the life of an innocent human being at a point when they are completely defenseless and unable to escape. They are completely helpless and yet they are regarded as worthless.

Worthless in terms of human dignity, but of course they are valued for the price of the abortion and the price of selling their remains for ‘research.’

Can you believe that the remains of aborted babies are sold in secret for profit? This is ridiculous! It sounds fake, it sounds like something out of a horror movie, but just google it! It’s for real. You can find video evidence of abortion providers making deals to sell the body parts of aborted babies.

It’s crazy. I mean, you can’t be that surprised I guess. When someone is okay with dismembering a little, innocent human being then what is to stop them from feeling that it’s okay to sell that baby for profit? Nothing.

It makes sense, but it’s still horrifying.

Abortion is a terrible thing. It must be avoided and eliminated and can only be done so through peaceful and non-violent means. The language of the abortionist is violence. The language of the pro-lifer is peace and non-violence.

There are many ways in which you can get involved and start helping to put an end to abortion. You can do it through activism, through voting, through donating, through your personal conversations, through volunteering. There are so many things that you can do!

Voting

Voting is probably the first thing people think of when it comes to abortion. It’s kind of sad really because it’s probably the least effective thing you can do. Don’t get me wrong, it’s important and you should vote pro-life at all levels of government and for all branches of government, but really politics follows culture. The culture is not yet changed so really the best you can hope for in the realm of politics is a marginal change. There won’t be huge world altering changes within politics without huge changes in the culture. So go ahead and vote, but remember that it’s really not enough.

Activism

Activism is probably the second one people think of and it is definitely more effective than voting, but to the extent that it is focused on political change it is really limited by the same issue I mentioned above.

Activism can change peoples’s minds and it can help put pressure on public figures and institutions, but in the end it’s not super effective. I mean really, when was the last time you changed your mind due to an activist you met on the street? When was the last time a picket sign changed your entire worldview?

See what I mean?

Donating

Again donating, like activism is helpful but is limited when it is used for politics and that sort of things. Donating to a pregnancy resource center or an organization that is focused on educating people is much more effective.

This is because people who specifically help those who are abortion vulnerable are really much more likely to have an effect than a politician. Service is more effective than power. Which brings me to the next option.

Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to get involved especially when you’re talking about your local pregnancy center or a pro-life education organization. Many of these organizations are often short-staffed and could put you to work doing some basic things even if you’re brand new to the pro-life movement.

Learning

One of the most important things that we can do as pro-lifers is to be educated. The abortion advocates may have more money and power but we have the truth on our side. Because of that in the end we will win and life will be protected! We recommend going over to whyprolife.com and spending some time there to learn as much as you can so that you can be effective in whatever you do for the pro-life movement.

Pro-Choice Members of Congress Must Protect the Right to Choose Abortion in Health Care

Diana Degette and Louise Slaughter wrote a letter signed by 41 pro-choice members of Congress, who stated quite clearly their position on the health care bill and abortion:

We will not vote for a conference report that contains language that restricts women’s right to choose any further than current law.

But Nancy Pelosi has said that the final bill will contain the abortion language passed by the Senate.  Does that “restrict a woman’s right to choose any further than current law?”  The answer is an unqualified “yes”:

  • The Senate language allows states to opt out of allowing plans to cover abortion in the insurance exchanges, a clear violation of Roe v. Wade
  • It prohibits insurance companies by law from taking into account cost savings when estimating the costs of abortion care, which raises premiums, thus limiting access
  • It includes “conscience clause” language that protects both pro-life individuals and pro-life entities that refuse to provide, pay for, provide coverage for, or refer for abortion.

Rep. DeGette and Rep. Slaughter won’t release the names of the members of Congress who signed their letter.  If they won’t stand up and give their names now, how can we expect them to stand by their word when it comes time to vote?

“Members of Congress must keep their promise to vote against any bill that restricts a woman’s right to choose, as the Senate bill does. Rep. DeGette and Rep. Slaughter should release the names on their letter and stand by their promise.”

Donate

Help us run this online ad to tell pro-choice members of Congress: vote “no” on the health care bill unless there are no restrictions on a woman’s right to choose.

Sign up to phone bank against the Stupak amendment

Will you help phone bank to help defeat the most serious assault on reproductive freedom in a generation?

Passing health care reform in this country shouldn’t come at the cost of women’s reproductive rights. But that’s exactly what will happen if Democrats allow the anti-choice Stupak amendment to become law.

That’s why we are launching a campaign called “One Voice For Choice.” We will be phone banking into the districts of Democratic lawmakers who voted for the Stupak amendment. This will be a unique and tightly targeted campaign, pressuring these lawmakers with the voices of those they SHOULD care most about—motivated pro-choice Democratic voters who will hold them accountable at the ballot box in 2010. Don’t let pro-lifers win!

Sign up to volunteer today!

We need hosts to commit to making at least 500 calls per phone bank. Hosts will be responsible for lining up locations and recruiting volunteers. We will provide lists, scripts, and tips on how to run a successful phone bank.

Before you start calling be sure you learn some abortion facts so that if you are in an opportunity to educate someone you can.
