It is not unusual for abortion to be framed as the only choice for women facing unplanned pregnancies, or for families in need struggling at the prospect of another baby on the way. Yet life-affirming options are available. Though they are frequently maligned by the abortion industry, pregnancy resource centers can mean the difference between life and death for a preborn child, and a helping hand both during and after the pregnancy. Yet part of the problem many face is knowing how to navigate the many resources available during an unplanned pregnancy. A new organization, endorsed by the American College of Pediatricians, has stepped in specifically to help with that.
Tens of thousands of Christians from across the country gathered in Washington, D.C. today to for Franklin Graham’s inaugural Prayer March. Coming from far and wide they assembled together in the nation’s capitol today to pray for the nation.

President Donald Trump today nominated federal appeals court Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be the next Supreme Court justice and that nomination has the strong support of pro-life groups.
“President Trump has chosen an absolute all-star in Judge Amy Coney Barrett to serve as our nation’s newest Supreme Court justice,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Amy Coney Barrett is a brilliant jurist in the mold of the late Justice Scalia, and President Trump could not have made a stronger selection to fill this Supreme Court vacancy. We have full confidence that the pro-life Senate majority will move swiftly to confirm her before the election.”
Consiglia Varriale was willing to sacrifice her life for her unborn daughter when doctors diagnosed her with breast cancer earlier this year.
Though her doctors advised her to have an abortion, Varriale could not bear the thought of ending her daughter’s life, Aleteia reports.
The 42-year-old from Quarto, Italy chose life for her daughter, Aurora, and today both mother and daughter are doing well, according to the report.
Varriale said she was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was three months pregnant with her second daughter. And, as often happens in such cases, her doctors recommended that she have an abortion so that she could begin cancer treatments, the report states.
Abortion was sold to the American public as a final step in achieving equality for women. But nearly five decades later, legalized abortion hasn’t liberated women.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg believed abortion to be about equality for women. There is no doubt that Ginsburg worked hard for women during her lifetime. Even before taking her seat on the Supreme Court, Ginsburg was fighting for gender equality. She took part in almost 300 sex discrimination cases, ensured that men and women would be treated as equals in estate disputes, fought for women to be allowed to obtain credit cards and loans in their own names, and even helped to ensure that pregnancy discrimination was recognized as a form of sex discrimination.
