New Website Reveals Truth About Pregnancy Centers, Busting Pro-Abortion Myths


“Hope. Compassion. Truth.”

These are just a few of the commitments pregnancy help organizations make to clients in need of support during one of the most trying moments of their lives.

That’s why it’s the tagline of a new website geared towards busting some of the most pervasive myths about their charitable work.

PregnancyCenterTruth.com, launched today by Heartbeat International—a global network of 2,600 pregnancy help organizations—tackles the major talking points of abortion advocacy groups like NARAL, designed to smear their life-saving work.

It's bye-bye to pro-abortion judges, Planned Parenthood

It's bye-bye to pro-abortion judges, Planned Parenthood
The abortion business has a huge political slush fund available to use in elections to gain victory for pro-abortion candidates to protect the organization and to fight against those who strive to defund it in Congress. But as Jim Sedlak of American Life League points out, Planned Parenthood has in the last decade relied on the courts and "friendly judges" to force its will on people.

"A lot of this has to do with the fact that President [Barack] Obama was in place for eight years and appointed a lot of federal judges at the district court level, at the appellate court level – and of course [two] at the Supreme Court level," he explains.

Sedlak says Planned Parenthood has relied on those judges – all who have a "progressive" bent and some who are judicial activists – to ward off legal challenges and protect it from its enemies. But now, says the pro-life spokesman, President Donald Trump is appointing conservative judges.

Down Syndrome community asks to be put on ‘endangered species’ list in face of abortion genocide
In Iceland, people with Down Syndrome have been virtually wiped out by abortion. In Denmark, people with Down syndrome also face extinction. In the United Kingdom, 90% of parents who discover that their pre-born child has Down syndrome opt to have the baby aborted. In the US, 75% of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. In Canada, it is also close to 90%.  In Iceland, people with Down Syndrome have been virtually wiped out by abortion. In Denmark, people with Down syndrome also face extinction.

Native American abortion worker compares abortion to abandoning an infant to be eaten by a wild animal
Samara Azam—Yu, director of Access Women’s Health Justice in Oakland, California, an organization that raises funds for women who can’t afford to have abortions:

“There’s a Native American nurse at an abortion clinic in San Francisco who put it this way. She said, “If you have twins and it’s a bad year, you have to put one in the badger hole.”

She compares abortion to abandoning an infant to be eaten by a wild animal.

Trump tries to ensure Affordable Care Act enrollees won’t unknowingly fund abortion

Trump tries to ensure Affordable Care Act enrollees won’t unknowingly fund abortion

The Trump administration has issued a proposed rule change to enforce existing regulations regarding taxpayer dollars used under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a.k.a. ObamaCare. This is meant to remedy the fact that, as SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser stated, “The Obama administration… allow[ed] insurers to ignore the plain language of the law that said an abortion surcharge had to be collected separately,” allowing insurers to collect the “separate” abortion surcharge “along with regular premiums, effectively defining ‘separate’ to mean ‘together.’”

“Thanks to this trickery,” Dannenfelser adds, “millions of Americans have unwittingly purchased plans without knowing about the hidden abortion surcharge…. Consumers deserve to know how Obamacare pays for abortion so they can avoid having their hard-earned dollars used to fund the destruction of innocent lives.”

Leakers seek to gut Trump admin’s pro-life foreign policy

A new Trump administration policy defending human life in international negotiations by avoiding terms that promote abortion has come under attack this week.

A recent spate of negative articles revealing details of internal U.S. documents that give guidance to diplomats have appeared in Foreign Policy and Politico. The guidance tells negotiators to avoid terms such as “sexual and reproductive health” and “comprehensive sexuality education,” according to the reports.

UN committee proclaims ‘right to life’ means ‘right to abortion’

UN committee proclaims ‘right to life’ means ‘right to abortion’

The “right-to-life” clause in an important UN human rights treaty must now include a right to abortion. So says a committee of experts charged with monitoring compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which most states have ratified.

The committee says governments must decriminalize abortion in all circumstances and “remove existing barriers that deny effective access by women and girls to safe and legal abortion including barriers caused as a result of the exercise of conscientious objection by individual medical providers,” according to the committee that monitors the implementation of the UN treaty on civil and political rights, ratified by the United States in 1991.

National Right to Life Applauds Announcement from Trump Administration Regarding Pro-Life Policies in Health Insurance

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) today issued a proposed rule to require health plan issuers operating in state and federal healthcare exchanges to separately bill for any elective abortion coverage and to segregate any collected funds.

Additionally, HHS announced a final rule change to the Affordable Care Act and HHS coverage mandate that would protect moral and religious rights of conscience.

Under President Obama’s administration, pro-abortion forces not only put increasing pressure on health care providers to violate their moral convictions with regard to abortion, but also backed efforts to force employers, including religious institutions and organizations that object to abortion, to cover abortion in their insurance plans.

The 2018 Elections, The Day After

The 2018 Elections, The Day After
Let’s be clear, all pro-lifers wish we had increased the pro-life margin in the United States Senate even more and retained control of the House of Representatives.

But that should not deflect our attention away from the bottom line. In the worst possible situation, pro-lifers came away with at least one if not three more senators willing to unabashedly defend constitutionalists, whether they are nominated for the lower courts or for the Supreme Court. That infusion of backbone will be huge when the next Supreme Court justice retires.

And as long as Democrats in the House are lead by pro-abortion-to-the-hilt Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) or someone just like her, you can know with 100% certainty they will overshoot the mark. They are not only rabidly pro-abortion, the caucus now consists of a preponderance of members who operate miles away from the center of American politics.

There are reasons, not excuses, why we did not do as well as we would have wanted Tuesday...

In an unavoidable bad turn for the innocent lives of the unborn in Illinois, Democrat J.B. Pritzker won the gubernatorial race after Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner conceded the race Tuesday night not that Bruce Rauner would have been better.

Vote. The babies’ lives depend on it!



Tensions are high and emotions stretched thin. The entire country has been waiting for the results of the midterm elections. So very, very much is at stake.

While many people have already voted, most will still vote Tuesday. It is an honor and a privilege as a citizen of this great nation.

Regardless of what the pundits may say we don’t know what those results will be. For those of us working to save unborn children, the outcome of this election season will tell us how much harder or easier that task will become.

Polls show many very close races — from the state legislatures, to contests for governor, to congressional match-ups. Remember how polls in 2016 showed that Hillary Clinton would win. But the country got a huge, and pleasant, surprise when Donald Trump was elected president.

When current polls show a candidate leading by two percent, or show candidates tied, regardless of whether they are precisely accurate, they do tell us as pro-lifers that every ballot counts.

Dozens, probably many dozens of races, are likely that close.

If you have family members or friends who have not voted, encourage them to get out tomorrow. If you know of someone who needs a ride to the voting site, offer to give them a ride. And because there are so many close races around the country, literally every ballot cast is critical.

From the single-issue pro-life perspective, the 2016 election was a great start to getting this country back on the right track after eight years of the most pro-abortion president in our history. Let’s use this year’s election to continue along that path.

Our pro-life President needs a pro-life House and a pro-life Senate to offset determined pro-abortionists who have virtually the entire media and entertainment industry in their pockets.

As if we needed a reminder, more than 2,500 babies will die by abortion today even as the elections are taking place.   

Please remember those babies when you vote.  Click here for Election Information for Illinois.

Texas OB/GYN who caused baby’s death is now an Illinois abortionist

In December 2013, Dr. George Backardjiev (pictured) used forceps to forcefully deliver baby Olivia Coats against the wishes of her mother, Rachel Melancon. The ob/gyn’s actions fractured Olivia’s skull and caused brain hemorrhaging, which in turn led to multiple organ failure. Four days later, little Olivia was dead.

In response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the Pro-Life Action League has learned that Backardjiev is now employed by the Aanchor abortion facility in Glen Ellyn, Illinois:




President Trump: “We celebrate the life-changing act of adoption”

During National Adoption Month, we recognize the immeasurable love and support that adoptive parents and families provide to hundreds of thousands of children each year. We celebrate the life-changing act of adoption, bring attention to the millions of Americans who are eager to adopt, and express our gratitude to the families who have welcomed children into their lives and homes. My Administration also acknowledges the courage of those mothers and fathers who place their child for adoption. Our Nation grows stronger because of the love and sacrifice of parents, both birth and adoptive.

Adoption is a blessing for all involved. It provides needed relief to birth parents, who may not, for whatever reason, be in a position to raise a child. It fosters loving homes for children. It enables individuals to grow their families and share their love. And it fosters strong families, which are integral to ensuring strong communities and a resilient country. To secure the benefits of adoption, we must continue to assist families who are willing to adopt children in need of a permanent home and support the adoptive families already formed. We must also encourage all Americans to recognize that adoption is a powerful way to show women they are not alone in an unexpected pregnancy.

Abortion giant uses pro-lifers' money to fight them

"It's important for taxpayers to understand that they are funding Planned Parenthood at the tune of $500 million, and Planned Parenthood uses those funds for their very nominal health services and it is now freeing up other donations that they receive through private donations or corporate donations," says Alison Centofante of Live Action, the organization behind the new report on Planned Parenthood. "Those donations are going to their political arm."

To put it another way, Live Action says Planned Parenthood is weaponizing taxpayers' money against them.

"By us funding Planned Parenthood with our taxpayer dollars," Centofante further explains, "we are freeing up other donations to be used to support pro-abortion candidates that go to Washington and in turn thanking Planned Parenthood by keeping their funding stream going."

US bishops endorse heartbeat abortion ban, pro-life congressman announces


The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has endorsed legislation that would ban most abortions in the U.S., according to the bill’s lead sponsor.

The Heartbeat Protection Act would require abortionists to first test whether a fetal heartbeat can be detected, and then forbid committing an abortion if the answer is “yes.” It allows an exception only for life-threatening physical circumstances (expressly rejecting exceptions for “psychological or emotional” health). Physicians who break the law would face up to five years in prison and/or a fine; women seeking abortions would not be punished.

Planned Parenthood wants you to stay home on election day


Elections have consequences. Pro-abortion activists know that full well after the election of President Trump. His efforts to advocate on behalf of America's most vulnerable citizens – unborn babies – have eclipsed those of any previous president in our nation's history.

The election of pro-life governors and state legislatures has resulted in over 600 pro-life laws enacted during the last nine years.  Planned Parenthood knows that its federal funding is in jeopardy as long as pro-lifers control the House and Senate. That's why they're investing $20 million to gain control of Congress. This threat is real.

Planned Parenthood called out for ‘birthright citizenship’ tweet while preventing births in abortion

Planned Parenthood called out for ‘birthright citizenship’ tweet while preventing births in abortion
Planned Parenthood has waded into another American debate over immigration, inspiring pro-lifers to raise another wave of questions and critiques about the abortion giant’s priorities.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump revealed he plans to issue an executive order ending the automatic granting of U.S. citizenship to children of illegal immigrants born on American soil. Both parties once denounced the doctrine of “birthright citizenship,” but today there is intense debate over whether the concept was ever intended by the Constitution’s 14th Amendment, and whether a president can eliminate it unilaterally.

VIDEO: New report details Planned Parenthood’s ‘political money laundering scheme’

Live Action has released a new report summarizing Planned Parenthood election efforts, dubbed as a “political money laundering scheme” to defeat pro-life candidates and elect pro-abortion politicians to carry out its agenda. Live Action News has previously documented that the abortion corporation’s political arms vowed to spend $20 million on their own in the 2018 midterms and $30 million in a consortium with other groups in a campaign called “Win Justice.”

“While Planned Parenthood and its political arms are separate on paper, because taxpayers are forced to give the abortion chain over $500 million a year, donors are freed up to direct their money to Planned Parenthood’s political agenda rather than to fund what nominal health services Planned Parenthood itself provides,” Live Action president Lila Rose stated in a press release.

Powerful documentary shows doctors’ push to abort babies with Down syndrome

Learning that your child has Down syndrome shouldn’t be something that causes fear and grief, but that’s the response many parents have. While the adjustment an unexpected diagnosis brings can be difficult, the experience is often made far worse due to negative bias that is endemic in the medical community. But now, Down syndrome families are speaking out and demanding better treatment.

Nothing Down, founded by Julie Willson and Shannon Daughtry to change the way the world views Down syndrome, fights negative stigmas and changes the conversation about Down syndrome and intellectual disabilities through filmmaking. They have released 14 documentaries and awareness videos, and their latest project takes aim at the medical community.

Federal Court Permanently Ends California Law that Forced Pregnancy Centers to Advertise for Abortion

A California law forcing pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise for abortion was brought to a permanent end Friday evening, thanks to an order by a federal district court.

With that, the 2015 law, AB 775, which essentially was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court in NIFLA v. Becerra in June, is now officially dead, unable to compel pro-abortion speech from life-affirming pregnancy centers.

“NIFLA v. Becerra is not just about whether or not to hand out abortion information on a piece of paper or post it on the walls of pro-life centers,” said NIFLA Vice President Anne O’Connor, J.D. who acted as co-counsel in the lawsuit on behalf of the national network of pro-life pregnancy centers. “It is about the right belonging to all American citizens to be free from government-compelled speech, and from being coerced into promoting a message that contradicts their values.”

‘The Abolition of Woman’: Novelist explains how radical feminism betrays women

Pro-life author Fiorella Nash
Pro-life author Fiorella Nash (pictured) calls herself a feminist. When discussing the near-religious fervor of the contemporary women’s movement for abortion, she is careful to call abortion advocates “radical feminists.” This is because Nash believes feminism is not wrong in itself but has merely lost its way.

“It’s become so ideologically obsessed with abortion and a very narrow view of women’s sexuality that it has drifted far away from its original purpose,” Nash stated.

Center for Medical Progress submits evidence Planned Parenthood may have lied to Congress
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) submitted evidence to a federal judge showing that Planned Parenthood may have lied to Congress and doctored evidence about the selling of aborted fetal body parts, which is illegal. CMP is asking the judge to force Planned Parenthood to produce its original records and invoices, as Planned Parenthood and its partner, Advanced Bioscience Resources, claimed to give the same invoices, but discrepancies were found.

“[B]oth ABR and Planned Parenthood produced what purported to be the same set of invoices, ‘but they produced different versions of the same invoice’,” CMP said in a press release. “Additionally, ‘the revenue totals and procurement totals’ for fetal body parts ‘do not match’ the totals that Planned Parenthood reported to Congressional investigations two years ago. The filing asks the Court ‘to verify that [Planned Parenthood] are not producing fabricated evidence’.”

Abortion groups want FDA to allow abortion pill use without medical supervision

Abortion groups want FDA to allow abortion pill use without medical supervision
The abortion lobby is planning to expand abortion access by seeking to change the FDA’s safety strategy for dispensing the abortion pill regimen known as RU486. Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry present abortion as “safe and simple,” but one look at forms they require women to sign reveals the real truth. Missed abortion, blood clots, infection and even death are among the risks associated with medication abortion. Despite these risks, the abortion lobby is pushing for “home use,” “mail order,” OTC, and “telabortion.”

The abortion pill regimen is made up of two drugs: Misoprostol and Mifeprex, which is currently regulated by the FDA under a system known as REMS, an acronym that stands for Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies.  The REMS document states that, “Mifeprex must be dispensed to patients only in certain healthcare settings, specifically clinics, medical offices, and hospitals, by or under the supervision of a certified prescriber.” The pill’s manufacturer, Danco Laboratories, must “[e]nsure that Mifeprex is not distributed to or dispensed through retail pharmacies or other settings….”

Mail-order abortion pill service may violate drug laws, FDA says
A European online service that has been quietly offering mail-order abortion pills to women in the United States for several months is being investigated by the FDA for possibly violating abortion drug laws. Aid Access is a website that says it offers abortion-inducing drugs to healthy women who are nine weeks pregnant or less.

If women qualify for the pills through online consultations, Aid Access writes them prescriptions for the two abortion-inducing drugs, misoprostol and mifepristone. These prescriptions are filled at a pharmacy in India, which mails the drugs to women in the U.S.

The FDA, however, has issued warnings that women should not buy mifepristone online, “because you will bypass important safeguards designed to protect your health (and the health of others).”

NFL star Benjamin Watson donates ultrasound machines to save lives

NFL tight end and Super Bowl champion Benjamin Watson, who plays for the New Orleans Saints, has long been an outspoken defender of life. But he also puts his money where his mouth is, making generous donations, like 3D ultrasound machines, to pregnancy help centers. He has also spoken at the March for Life, where he implored men to do their part in preventing abortion. “We as men must stand up for the lives of the innocent and their mothers in crisis,” he said. “As important as women have been in championing this cause, you men must rise up and lead the charge. Even if it wasn’t demonstrated for you by a father, you can be different. You can change the course of generations. Men: we can be silent no more!”

Watson recently announced that he’s taken action again to help expectant mothers and fathers choose life. “Earlier this year we felt led to serve expecting mothers, fathers and their unborn children by placing ultrasound machines at at health services providers around the country,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “So many men and women struggle with making decisions for life but we know from experience the power and encouragement seeing inside the womb offers.”

CBS poll: 72% of young women favor more abortion restrictions

In anticipation of the upcoming midterm elections, CBS and Refinery29 teamed up for a poll concerning young American women’s voting trends and views on certain issues. They began publicizing it August 13. While some media reports of the findings focused more on the political aspects, such as the Trump Administration, the poll revealed much more. Namely, that many young women don’t fit the mold that the media and politicians often assume.

The poll, conducted by YouGov, looked at women from the ages of 18 to 35 and found that only 28% want abortion “legal in all cases.” Other results included: 34% want abortion “legal in most cases,” 25% want abortion “illegal in most cases,” and 13% want abortion “illegal in all cases.”

In the end, that means 72% are likely in favor of some kind of abortion restriction.

Known as “Aid Access,” the website purports to connect pregnant women with a "doctor" for an online consultation via the internet, before being supplied with abortifacients mifepristone and misoprostol by mail. The website was created by Netherlands abortion activist Rebecca Gomperts.  The Aid Access website offers a troubling explanation of who the organization seeks to serve and how, including minors who want to hide their pregnancies from their parents

The women then take the pills at home, without the oversight of a medical doctor.

The U.S. International Agency for International Development (USAID) just gave a hefty grant to CARE, a global aid organization that is working to undermine the administration's pro-life policies and to insert abortion into humanitarian situations worldwide.

In a memo marked "confidential" CARE said it is deliberately undermining the effects of the president's expanded Mexico City Policy, the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA) policy. It said it is working with contacts, ostensibly including those within the administration, to delay the policy's implementation and blunt its life-saving impact for women and children around the world.

Clinic worker–Post abortion woman crying, feeling guilty, and scared

Clinic worker–Post abortion woman crying, feeling guilty, and scared
From a clinic worker:

“I’ve taken up to one hour and a half if the patient needs it – the people at the front desk don’t love it if I do that too often, but if I have to, I do. I just had a patient today that took a really long time. It was a post abortion – she was crying, feeling really guilty. The doctor really scared her; I had to act as her advocate.”

In actuality, most clinics either offer no counseling or counseling that consists only of a short session of telling a group of women about the abortion process (not in too much detail of course) and offering to answer questions. Even in cases where clinic workers want to give more counseling, there is pressure on them to make it short.

The UN should consider the dangers of child euthanasia

The UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights recently solicited input for a report regarding the rights of children with disabilities. MCCL GO provided a contribution that drew attention to the problems with child euthanasia.

The Netherlands permits the euthanasia of children as young as 12, and doctors there also practice the active euthanasia of sick and disabled infants, including those with disabilities such as spina bifida. Belgium removed any age limit for euthanasia in 2014. And earlier this year, Colombia passed a resolution expanding its euthanasia policy to children.

These developments raise a number of human rights concerns. Euthanasia violates the right to life, and child euthanasia is especially troubling. The immaturity of children inhibits their ability to make sound decisions and give proper consent.

Movie about gruesome Gosnell abortionist breaks into box office Top 10

Movie about gruesome Gosnell abortionist breaks into box office Top 10

“Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” has shattered expectations after opening weekend. According to Box Office Mojo, “Gosnell” — a movie about the crimes of a horrific abortionist — finished the weekend at #10 with $1.3 million, despite having a limited release with less than 700 theaters. It beat out movies featuring Hollywood heavyweights, like “A Simple Favor,” starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, and the Keira Knightley film “Colette.”

Despite the horrors of this story, the media notoriously refused to cover it. But now, five years later, Gosnell’s crimes are being told on the big screen, thanks to a crowdfunding campaign that raised over $2 million. Filmmakers had to fight multiple obstacles to bring the movie to theaters, but were ultimately successful — and apparently, more successful than anyone could have expected. “Gosnell” was able to break the box office top ten despite very little advertising, including a campaign to censor attempts to promote the film by Facebook, according to producers. Word-of-mouth from pro-lifers bolstered the film and helped push it towards success, with many viewers reacting positively to the film, despite negative reviews from pro-abortion activists.

AG Hill files powerful brief defending Indiana’s pro-life laws

AG Hill files powerful brief defending Indiana’s pro-life laws
Pro-lifers in Indiana are applauding the decision by Attorney General Curtis Hill (pictured) to ask the Supreme Court to review and reverse a lower decision overturning the state’s law banning abortion for the sole reasons of the child’s race, sex, national origin or a potential disability such as Down syndrome.

In addition, the historic “Dignity for the Unborn Act,” also known as HEA 1337, prohibits abortion businesses from treating the remains of unborn child as common medical waste. Both provisions were blocked in late 2017 by Judge Tonya Walton Pratt, an appointee of President Obama. AG Hill is contesting that conclusion as well.

The bill was signed into law in 2016 by then Gov. Mike Pence. The lawsuit against HEA 1337 was then brought by Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union

Planned Parenthood’s three-part plan for 2019: Abortion, abortion, abortion

Planned Parenthood’s three-part plan for 2019: Abortion, abortion, abortion
Planned Parenthood has released its plan for 2019, and despite declining clients and health services, the plan reveals the organization’s continued obsession with abortion. Planned Parenthood masquerades as a health care organization, and as its abortion market share steadily increased (due in part to half a billion dollars they receive from taxpayers annually), Planned Parenthood’s profits skyrocketed. In 2018, Planned Parenthood set out to protect those gains by vowing to spend millions to elect pro-abortion lawmakers and hire a new director to push for activist judges on the court.

The “multi-million dollar” plan was announced by the group’s political advocacy arm, and disbursed to the media days after Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court. It lays out how Planned Parenthood will “work to ensure there is still access to abortion across the country, even if the national protections afforded by Roe v. Wade disappear.”

'Civility' not a two-way street: pro-lifers

Pro-life campaigners report experiencing an increase lately in abuse. Mark Harrington of Created Equal tells OneNewsNow that since the election of Donald Trump and confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court, the rhetoric has reached a fevered pitch.

"... It's not hard to figure that when you have folks like Senator Cory Booker and Hillary Clinton making statements that they shouldn't be 'civil' in dealing with those who would disagree with them, it would follow that these type of things – you know, attacks and vandalism and threats and that kind of thing – would happen on a college campus," he shares.

Judge clears way for hospital to remove life support from child in Texas

Judge clears way for hospital to remove life support from child in Texas

The family of nine-year-old Payton Summons received heartbreaking news Wednesday that a 14-day restraining order against Cook Children’s Medical Center in Forth Worth, Texas, will not be extended, and Payton will be removed from life support on Monday afternoon. A judge put the original order in place on October 1, 2018.

CNN reports that Cook Children’s attempted to get other hospitals to take Payton. According to the Summons family’s attorney, “… after 25 out of 28 facilities that were contacted, we had no takers, we have two maybes and those were preconditioned on certain things which may be life threatening to Payton if performed” — a somewhat ironic statement, given that if Payton is removed from life support, this will be immediately life threatening.

Local news affiliate CBS 11 reports that after Payton went into cardiac arrest, it was revealed that she had a large tumor growing in her chest. Payton reportedly survived childhood cancer as a toddler.

The mid-term elections: It’s not about us, it’s about the 3,000 babies who will die by abortion today

The mid-term elections: It’s not about us, it’s about the 3,000 babies who will die by abortion today

With less than a month before the November 6 midterm elections. I’m going to say something some may find shocking.

It’s not about you.

No. And it’s definitely not about me. It’s about the nearly 3,000 unborn children who will die a brutal death by abortion today. And another 3,000 tomorrow. It’s about protecting their lives – and their futures.

We are in the business of saving lives. Thanks to you the carnage is far less than it once was. But one baby lost to abortion is too many.

When we elect pro-life women and men, life-saving legislation is passed.

For example, in South Carolina alone, there are nearly 175,000 people alive today because they passed pro-life laws.

And just one piece of federal legislation – the Hyde Amendment, which limits federal funding of abortions – is attributed to saving two million lives.

A lot is at stake. Lives are at stake…

This year, there are 35 U.S. Senate seats up for election: 26 Democrat seats and 9 Republican seats.

If Democrats were to control the Senate, pro-abortion Chuck Schumer (D-NY) would be Senate Majority Leader. Consider the fate of eminently qualified judges such as Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh were the Senate in the hands of pro-abortion Democrats.

If pro-abortion Democrats take over leadership in the U.S. House and Senate, there will be consequences.
