59 Million and Counting

On the 46th anniversary of the court cases Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton that legalized abortion, we remember the 59 million lives lost to abortion since January 22, 1973. Large numbers like 59 million can be difficult to wrap your brain around, because there aren’t many tangible examples of numbers that big. We decided to put together a few examples of what the number 59 million could represent. How would it compare to dollars and cents? The movies? Our cities? Our silence? Let us be the first to pay attention and stand up for the 59 million lives lost and be the first to recognize the sanctity of every human life.

Will Sex Ed End Abortion? No, it Won't

This is a frequent criticism prolife people hear: we should be reducing abortions by stopping our efforts to educate people about the value of unborn children and stop advocating for their legal protection. Only by focusing on sex education (or contraception) can we achieve abortion reductions, they say. Is it really true? Is expanding sex education the answer to ending abortion? Is teen pregnancy driving this problem? Looking at real-world examples, the answer is no. That criticism also brings up another important question: why just reduce abortions? If abortion takes the life of an innocent human being, what's an acceptable legal level for that? Who would argue we should cap homicides at 10,000, and not care so long as the number stays below that?

Latest CDC Abortion Report Shows Further Decline

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released their latest annual report on abortion statistics, showing that abortion rates are lower than ever. Though it is unacceptable that any number of children should die because of abortion, it is encouraging to see that the number of lives lost decreases each year—slowly but surely. The total number of reported abortions in the U.S. decreased 2% from 652,639 in 2014 to 638,169 in 2015. This number has been steadily dropping.

March for Life 2019

The annual National March for Life will be in Washington, D.C. on January 18. The March for Life is a great opportunity to physically stand up for the rights of the unborn and demonstrate support for life in our nation’s capital. On the 46th memorial of the legalization of abortion through Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, hundreds of thousands of people will gather to protest the injustice of abortion. This year the speakers at the rally preceding the March are Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood abortion facility director, and Ben Shapiro, host of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” a top national podcast. Several Right to Life of Michigan affiliates are planning bus trips for the March.
