Words Can Kill

Why have those of us who believe in the sanctity of life lost seven straight state referenda across America since the overturn of Roe v. Wade? The pro-life movement is working overtime to answer that question. If the trend continues in 2024, we could again experience a gigantic disappointment with a pro-abortion president and a pro-abortion majority in the Senate. And, of course, that would mean more innocent pre-born children will die.

Studies in the seven states that voted pro-abortion show some disturbing trends. Turnout by pro-life voters, including pro-life Christians, was lower than expected in each state. The pro-abortion movement outspent us on media ads and grassroots organizing, sometimes by massive margins. We can't let that happen again in 2024.

But there is another challenge, too, that must be recognized and addressed. The modern pro-abortion movement is extremely radical, embracing abortion on demand in all nine months of pregnancy for any and all reasons. Knowing most Americans reject that position, they have made a subtle change in their rhetoric, including exploiting words and ideas generally associated with conservatism.

The Wall Street Journal analyzed the messaging changes in their December 30/31 issue. They found that the word "choice" has fallen into disfavor. A few months ago, the pro-abortion group NARAL Pro-Choice America changed their name to "Reproductive Freedom for All." Polling shows the word "freedom" is key. In Kansas, where we lost a ballot initiative, our opponents started a new group called, "Kansas for Constitutional Freedom." "Freedom" polls better than "abortion" or "choice."

The pro-aborts are exploiting anti-government sentiment, too. The pro-abortion group in Arkansas calls themselves, "Arkansans for Limited Government," a conservative name.

Ads in all the states that voted pro-abortion featured the theme that the pro-aborts wanted to ensure that families - not government - have the "freedom" to make their own personal decisions. By the way, all of this is similar to how the gay rights movement pushed the "freedom to marry."

The irony is the pro-abortion movement is anti-freedom in every way. It deprives the innocent child of his or her right to live. It actively works to take away the freedom of all Americans by forcing us to pay for abortions. It opposes parental rights and tries to use the government to allow minors to get abortions, regardless of what the mother and father want for their child.

Don't be deceived!

Biden's War on Women

The Biden administration hopes the abortion issue will lead to his re-election in November. Women voters may want to think twice, however. Late last Friday, the administration declared war on women by distorting and destroying Title IX, a landmark 1972 law that bans sex discrimination in any school that receives federal funding. Title IX guarantees equal treatment for women in every aspect of education from the classroom to sports. Feminists hailed its passage 52 years ago, but the law may have a fatal omission that the Biden administration just drove a truckload of "wokeness" through: It didn't define what a woman is.

Religious Left Smears Christian Conservatives

As we have repeatedly warned, there is a deliberate effort to intimidate, shame, smear, and even threaten conservative Christians out of the political and public policy arena. It is understandable that the radical, secular Left would want to do that. But it is outrageous that some so-called "progressive Christians" are lending their support to this effort.

Stand With Israel

We thank God that the April 13th missile and drone attack on Israel, by the Islamic Republic of Iran, failed. Many of the 300 missiles and drones were destroyed by Israel's Iron Dome defense system or by U.S. and Israeli jets. But the failure of the attack does not erase its significance. For the first time, Iran has launched an attack directly from its own territory on Israel, instead of using its proxies, including Hamas and Hezbollah.
