GOD'S HANDS: The abortionist seen praying in the video released by the Pro-Life Action League earlier this week claims to provide "Christ-like love" to pregnant women, and says she feels God's "spirit and guiding hand in my work" and "the support of thy spirit." PLW: Christ's love was sacrificial, not selfish like abortion.
DOWN AD: An advertisement meant to support World Down Syndrome Day will remain banned from French televisions after a French court ruled earlier this month that the ad could “disturb the conscience of women who, in accordance with the law, have made personal life choices.” PLW: French courts have redefined what is right and wrong - confronting someone who has made an immoral, yet legal decision is now illegal.
MEDAL OF FREEDOM: By awarding the founders of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Obama administration is sending the message that working toward the elimination of preborn children is a noble cause. PLW: The Gates Foundation has sterilized thousands of women in Africa and will continue to do so under the guise of health care.
VANDALISM: Vandals defaced a pro-life banner at a student group's abortion-victim memorial over the weekend - the second time it has been vandalized since being erected Nov. 3. PLW: The Illinois student group has promised to continue their memorial. We commend their strength amidst the persecution.
CONSEQUENCES: My boyfriend felt as if I was taking away some hypothetical choice from him (by saying I would never have an abortion), and, of course, taking away the freedom to occasionally have unprotected sex without repercussion. PLW: Abortion and contraception allow men and women to use one another without any perceived consequences or future thought. This was not how sexuality was meant to be.
TRUMP: Specific pro-life policies are missing from President-elect Donald Trump’s agenda for his first 100 days in office, yet pro-life groups are nevertheless hopeful about the future of his administration. PLW: Pro-Life Wisconsin will continue to educate Wisconsin's elected leaders on pro-life issues, hoping to continue successes we've had in recent years, regardless of the national landscape.
CELEBRITY: TV host Nick Cannon calls out Planned Parenthood for "modern day eugenics." PLW: We agree, and the evidence proves Planned Parenthood targets poor, uneducated and minority women in their contraception, abortion and sterilization campaigns.
