Wars and Abortion

Martin Luther King Jr.’s Niece: “My Uncle Would Have Been Very Pro-Life”

Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece says her uncle’s legacy as a civil rights leader has a strong impact on the pro-life movement today.
“As the niece of the Rev.

Forty-three years ago, the Supreme Court decided that the Texas law that prevented Jane Roe from ending the life of her unborn daughter was unconstitutional.

Both McCorvey and Sandra Cano, the Doe of Doe v. Bolton—Roe’s companion case from Georgia decided the same day—became outspoken pro-life advocates who swore that their cases were built on lies. …

Catholic Cardinal and Evangelical Pastor: Quit Forcing Americans to Pay for or Participate in Abortions

An op-ed that ran this week in USA Today was an example of ecumenism at its best.
Appearing under the headline, “To be really pro-choice, you must protect each doctor’s choice to not perform abortions,” Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, eloquently made the case for passage of the “Conscience Protection Act of 2017.” Current federal law does not sufficiently protect the conscience rights of health care professionals and others. …
