93% of women regretted aborting their pregnancy conceived in rape

The Elliot Institute’s, Amy Sobie, joined Brad to dispel some misconceptions about rape and abortion. After a variety of research was conducted on post-abortive women who had also been raped, 93% of women regretted aborting their pregnancy conceived in rape.

March for Life - Mark Your Calendars

In 2011 and 2012, the anniversary date of the Roe v. Wade decision will fall on a weekend, a time when lawmakers are typically away from Washington. We want to make sure that our pro-life pilgrimage to our nation’s capitol has maximum impact on our elected leaders; and that our Marchers have an opportunity to visit with their Congressional delegations in order to press their pro-life message. For those reasons, we have scheduled the March for Life to be held on Monday, January 24, 2011, and Monday, January 23, 2012.

Please plan now to attend. Your presence, in growing numbers every year, is the best way to draw attention to the untenable legacy of Roe v. Wade, and to persuade our leaders to eradicate it from America’s future.

The Guttmacher Institute recently released a new report on abortion statistics nationwide that confirms the abortion industry continues to target black Americans. Abortions on black women still occur at a much higher rated than compared with the percentage of African-Americans in society as a whole.
