Jeanne Mancini Op-Ed in Townhall

March for Life President Jeanne Mancini had an op-ed published in Townhall.com entitled, “Pro-Life Progress During Trump’s First 100 Days.”

Much has been accomplished in a little over three months and we are grateful that President Trump has been a man of his word. However, there is still more work to be done. Over these next 100 days, we encourage the President and Congress to work together to pass healthcare that codifies the Hyde Amendment and redirects Planned Parenthood funding, to quickly fill the over 127 federal judicial and key personnel vacancies, and to sign into a law a ban on five month abortions (the pain-capable unborn child protection act) – a bill that reflects the 74% of Americans who wish to limit abortion to the first three months of pregnancy.

Support Pro-Life HHS Appointees Yoest and Manning

 

Your voice is urgently needed to support pro-life appointments in the Trump Administration!

Last week, President Trump appointed two pro-life advocates to key positions in the Department of Health and Human Services – Dr. Charmaine Yoest as Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services, and Teresa Manning as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Population Affairs. Both Charmaine and Teresa have worked tirelessly for pro-life and pro-woman policies their entire careers, and now pro-abortion activists are protesting their appointments and pressuring the White House to rescind them.

It’s critical that pro-life Americans raise their voices in support of the appointments of Yoest and Manning.

Send a message to President Trump and Secretary Price thanking them for the appointments of Yoest and Manning to HHS.

In the first 100 days of the Trump Administration, many pro-life policy successes have been achieved. Check out March for Life President Jeanne Mancini’s op-ed in Townhall, “Pro-Life Progress During Trump’s First 100 Days.”  However, there’s still much work to be done – and your voice is needed!

Urgent support for Yoest and Manning are needed as pro-abortion activists seek to derail these appointments.

Take Action NOW by sending an important message to President Trump and Secretary Price!

March for Life Statement on Planned Parenthood’s 100th Anniversary Celebration

 

“Tonight, as part of its 100th anniversary year-long commemoration, Planned Parenthood will award Secretary Hillary Clinton a “Champion of the Century” award. The 100th  year-long anniversary dates back to the 1916 opening of Margaret Sanger’s first clinic in New York City. Originally known as the American Birth Control League and renamed Planned Parenthood in 1942, the organization has evolved into a billion-dollar business and the single largest provider of abortions in the United States – performing over 320,000 abortions annually.

“Since 1973, over 58 million Americans have been lost to abortion, and approximately a third of those have been at the hands of Planned Parenthood. Abortion is profoundly anti-woman, and while some will celebrate Secretary Clinton’s achievement award tonight, we instead grieve the fact that approximately one-sixth of our nation is not with us today because of the very work of Planned Parenthood.

The 100th anniversary of our nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, is a somber reminder of the work we have ahead of us in building a culture of life. We also use this year-long anniversary to redouble our educational efforts to show the attractive and empowering truth that being pro-life is pro-woman, and, unlike Margaret Sanger, we know that each person – regardless of race, special needs, or “being planned” – has inherent dignity from the moment of conception.”

Jeanne Mancini Op-Ed in the Hill

Over the weekend, March for Life President Jeanne Mancini had an op-ed published in The Hill entitled, “Democratic leaders hurt their own party by ousting pro-life voters.” 

The March for Life has a 44-year track record of inclusivity. Each year, thousands of people across all state, cultural and party lines travel from every corner of this country to march side by side, shoulder to shoulder, down the streets of our nation’s capital for the protection and dignity of human life. For those few, frigid miles, we march not only as individuals from different backgrounds, but as a pro-life community united in our purpose to defend the inherent dignity of all human life.

March for Life Statement on DNC Abortion Position

 

“DNC Chairman Tom Perez drew a line in the sand on Friday when he demanded that unwavering support for abortion be “non-negotiable” for “every Democrat”, decisively alienating the 23% of Democrat voters who identify as pro-life and 44% of Democrats oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, in favor of siding with federally-funded abortion giants like Planned Parenthood, who perform over 300,000 abortions a year.

The March for Life has a 44-year track record of uniting people of all backgrounds in defense of the inherent dignity of all human life. We have welcomed and will continue to welcome pro-life Democrats like Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL) to speak at the March, and will continue to support all whom fight for the right to life until the culture of abortion is unthinkable to every person and party alike.”

America’s Pro-Life Consensus

 

Many Americans do not realize that our nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, receives half a billion taxpayer dollars every year.

In a country where the majority of citizens are pro-life and eight out of ten Americans do not support taxpayer dollars paying for abortion, this funding is unjust and needs to stop!

The Missing Science

 

Guest Blog post by Brooke Stanton, Founder, Contend Projects

Did you know that when a human being begins to exist is a scientific issue and not a philosophical or religious one? And, that the science has been settled for a very long time? Did you also know that the scientific experts to ask about this most fundamental question are the experts in the science of Human Embryology?

 

For over 100 years, Human Embryology has stated that in sexual reproduction a new, whole, individual, living human being begins to exist at the beginning of the process of fertilization, i.e. at “first contact” between the sperm and the oocyte (“egg”).  When these two mere cells make first contact and fuse, immediately specific human proteins and enzymes are produced (not sperm or “egg” proteins and enzymes), and a new single-cell human being, with his or her own new, unique human genome and complete set of DNA begins to exist.  This is an objective, empirical and modern scientific fact, and is documented in the Carnegie Stages of Early Human Embryonic Development as Carnegie Stage 1a.

One of the main reasons the basic ‘facts of life’ are so confusing today is because of the court ruling in the Roe v. Wade case. In his majority opinion, Justice Blackmun wrote that the beginning of human life could not be determined, saying the “disciplines of medicine, philosophy and theology” were “unable to arrive at any consensus”, and “we need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins.”

Most people do not know that the academic disciplines Blackmun referenced have no bearing on the science of Human Embryology. Human Embryology is the only scientific field that specializes in when a human being begins and his or her early development.  Yet, no human embryologists testified in the Roe v. Wade case.

And so, because the science has been obscured for so long, today many people still believe that the question is not settled, and are making uninformed and erroneous decisions, policies and laws concerning a human embryo and a human fetus.

Contend Projects aims to reverse this deeply harmful trend. We are working to make the internationally acknowledged empirical scientific fact of when a human being normally begins simple, accessible and relevant for everyone.

March for Life Statement on Title X Law

 

“Today we thank President Donald Trump for restoring the state’s right to direct taxpayer dollars away from abortion providers in favor of supporting community health centers that deliver comprehensive women’s care, and already outnumber abortion providers 20 to 1.

We continue to applaud Vice President Mike Pence for casting the tie-breaking Senate vote, and are grateful for the strong female leadership exhibited by Rep. Diane Black and Sen. Joni Ernst in introducing H.J. Res 43 to Congress. We look forward to working with Congress in finding a permanent solution to defund Planned Parenthood, whose clinics perform over 320,000 abortions a year, and in ensuring that our government sides with the majority of Americans who oppose taxpayer funding of abortion.”

March for Life Statement on Supreme Court Confirmation of Neil Gorsuch

 

“The March for Life congratulates Judge Neil Gorsuch on his historic confirmation to the Supreme Court today. We were pleased to support Judge Gorsuch’s nomination, as were our grassroots activists from across America who sent thousands of messages to their Senators in support of his nomination. We thank Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for remaining steadfast throughout this process and President Trump for keeping his promise to the American people in nominating a pro-life Justice to the Supreme Court. November exit polls showed that 1 in 5 Americans prioritized the Supreme Court nomination when casting their vote, and with a majority of 57% of those voters casting a vote for Donald Trump, it is clear that the majority of American voters wanted a strict constructionist.”

Tom McClusky Healthcare Op-ed in Morning Consult

 

March for Life Vice President of Government Affairs, Tom McClusky was published in Morning Consult with an op-ed entitled, “Doing Nothing on Health Care Is Not an Option.”

Congress must persevere. The next attempt at repealing Obamacare needs to continue that pro-life trend, while also seeking consensus on the issues that led to the defeat of the first bill. To be clear, what happened last week was a failure. But with every failure comes an opportunity. True leadership will take that opportunity and run with it, not be defeated by it.
