A growing number of states are passing legislation aimed specifically at challenging Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 decision that legalized abortion in all fifty states. With two new conservative justices having been added to the Supreme Court under President Donald Trump, pro-lifers are optimistic that the Supreme Court, with its new conservative majority, may scale back or overturn Roe if presented with the opportunity. In many states where pro-life lawmakers hold majorities …

The U.N. Human Rights Committee has taken broad aim at pro-life laws and policies in the United States. Meeting last month, the Committee called on the Trump administration to “review” a number of its pro-life policies, suggesting that these were incompatible with international law. The Committee singled out for criticism President Trump’s Mexico City Policy, his executive order “Protecting Free Speech and Religious Liberty,” and his executive order which protects religious employers like the Little …

Last Thursday, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed the Human Rights and Heartbeat Protection Act (S.B. 23) into law. The new law prohibits doctors from performing an abortion if a heartbeat can be detected, except in cases to save the life of the mother or to prevent the…

https://www.pop.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/WB_PRI-Attacked-by-Soros-041019-1.mp3 A left-wing, George Soros-funded media organization in the United Kingdom, called openDemocracy, has just released a hit piece falsely accusing PRI of “subvert[ing] democracy” in Europe. This is nothing more than an attempt to smear the good work that Population Research Institute (PRI) and other Christian, pro-life, and pro-family organizations in the U.S. do on that continent. OpenDemocracy’s report alleges that PRI, along with other Christian and pro-life organizations, is funneling so-called “dark money” …

As the pope described it, “he” had undergone surgery and then married. Later, “he” had written to the pope, who had …

https://www.pop.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/WB-Heartbeat.mp3 With a new conservative majority on the Supreme Court, several states this year have seized on the opportunity to advance pro-life legislation aiming to overturn Roe v. Wade. One type of pro-life legislation in particular is increasingly gaining momentum on the state level—heartbeat bills which ban abortion from the moment an unborn child’s heartbeat can be detected. Sign PRI’s Petition Calling on Lawmakers to Pass Heartbeat Legislation Now Because heartbeat laws ban abortion prior …

https://www.pop.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/WB-Puerto-Rico.mp3 While most states in the U.S. have at least some restrictions on abortion, in Puerto Rico legal restrictions on abortion are practically non-existent. A pro-life bill passed by the Puerto Rico Legislative Assembly earlier this month would have helped change that. Although the pro-life bill passed both houses of the commonwealth legislature with overwhelming majorities, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló has vowed to veto it. The bill, entitled the “Law for the Protection of …
