This short video shows you what the liberal media fears: More young Americans are fighting abortion — Watch & share the amazing footage here
It could have been the largest March for Life in history — 500,000 strong — in the bitter cold and snow.
Yet the major media mentions nothing or next to nothing. Read more…

“Picture a football stadium that holds 55,000 people, and then multiply that to 1,000 such filled stadiums, and you’ll have an idea of how many human beings we have lost, how many babies have been killed, since the Roe v. Wade decision 40 years ago.” Read more…
Mary Cooney writes about Friday’s March for Life through Washington D.C. to the steps of the Supreme Court, where, 40 years ago, the court created a right to abortion on demand at any time during pregnancy: “Despite the cold weather and snow, there were many more people at the March for Life than I have seen in past years. There were easily over half a million people there, mostly young and exuberant. Very uplifting and inspiring! And we ran into some people from Arizona and Canada.”
The following video shows the strong youth contingent in the march, close up. (Go to Video Watch for another powerful video.)
From the Walk for Life West Coast official website:
We, of course, are used to bias by the mainstream media. That does not mean we will not identify it when we see it.
Check out this clip from KTVU TV on yesterdays Walk for Life West Coast (50,000 + persons) and the opposition rally (300 persons according to KGO TV.) They interviewed 2 people from the tiny rally, and one person (Anne Morse, a Berkeley Student for Life) at the Walk for Life West Coast, who did great.
We do admit it is probably easier to get to a rally speaker when the rally has so few attendees…

As we recognize the fortieth anniversary of Roe v. Wade, pro-lifers should consider supporting a constitutional amendment to abolish abortion forty years from now.
It has been forty years since the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade. Last year, about this time, I reflected on “The Unbearable Wrongness of Roe.” Now, after another year of a million-and-a-half lives lost to abortion, it is fitting to reflect on those past forty years and to think creatively, and perhaps prophetically, about the next forty. What different roads might have been taken before? And what might that say about paths to be taken now, for the future, if those of us who may be alive in another forty years are to hope to see the promised land of protection of human life?

You just gotta love it when a pro-abortion columnist admits that the term “pro-death” is indeed the appropriate moniker for her movement.
First, on a personal note: Thank you, thank you and thank you, Mary Elizabeth Williams! What a glorious service you’ve done the pro-life cause. I know, that’s not what you intended. But that’s precisely what you’ve accomplished. Read more…

Despite the fact that tens of thousands of people showed up in Washington and other cities for last Friday’s “March for Life” events, media coverage from the major secular news agencies was sparse.
The nation’s mainstream media has once again shown its pro-abortion bias. According to the Media Research Center (MRC), in the 40 years since the first March for Life, the media coverage has been consistently lopsided in favor of the pro-abortion perspective. Rich Noyes, MRC’s director of research, said The New York Times has virtually ignored the march for five years running. Read more…
Special thanks to Peggy B. who sent these pictures and these words of her experience:
I have done the West Coast WFL in SF for the past seven years. That march continued to grow every year and the number of crazies and hecklers decreased every year. Both positive signs in that bastion of relativism.
I loved being a part of the “inaugural” SD Walk for Life. My husband and I met up with our daughter and son-in-law and their young friends. It was such a beautiful and peaceful march. It almost seemed unnatural to not see one opposing person or sign! I loved chatting again with Walter Hoye. I loved meeting Dr. Morse and so many wonderful people who were in the various booths. I am starting to volunteer with the Culture of Life group. I am so happy to be living in San Diego! Read more…
From the article: “Mainstream media, take a memo,” she wrote in a tongue-in-cheek column published shortly after the NPR decision, “and frame all news stories this way: Refer to abortion supporters as ‘right to life opponents,’ refer to gun control supporters as ‘gun rights opponents,’ refer to ‘hate speech’ backers as ‘speech rights opponents.’”
“Who wants to be against rights, right?” Barber quipped. Read more…

January 24, 2013 (NCRegister) – When I was younger, I was always particularly shocked when I heard about societies where it was common to abandon or kill unwanted newborns. In college I once read a particularly graphic description of a family in ancient Greece “discarding” a newborn baby girl. I was shocked to the point of breathlessness. I was also horribly confused: How could normal people be okay with this, let alone participate in it? Nobody I knew would do that! Were people that different back then?! Read more…
