New HHS Protect Life Rule Would Cut Funding to Abortion Providers—But There’s Still Room for Improvement



https://www.pop.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/WB_Title_X_081618.mp3 In June, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a new rule proposal that, if adopted, would stop funding for abortion providers through the Department’s Title X family planning program.

Let’s Roll Back Roe v. Wade



https://www.pop.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/WB-Lets-Overturn-Roe.mp3 Two score and five years ago, seven Supreme Court justices, in a brazen act of judicial activism, read into the Constitution an invented right to abortion on demand.

Since then, more than 60 million unborn children have been terminated through abortion in America. …

North Dakota Judge Strikes Down State Pro-Life Laws



North Dakota is known for sub-zero temperatures and the Bakken oil field, which is helping America to achieve energy independence. But it is also one of the most pro-life states in the nation, a state where nearly all Republicans—and even most Democrats—are in favor of protecting life because they believe that abortion is morally wrong. Just last year the state legislature—in an impressive display of bipartisanship—quietly passed a series of sound, commonsense laws intended to …
