The Obama Abortion Agenda and the Congress: The Last Four Years

By Douglas Johnson

WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 1, 2012)–Over the four years of Barack Obama’s presidency, substantial damage has been inflicted to longstanding pro-life policies. In addition, new programs have been created which, during the years ahead, will result in large-scale federal subsidies to health plans that pay for abortion, other federally driven expansions of abortion, and rationing of lifesaving medical care, unless remedial legislation is enacted.

In addition, Obama placed two strongly pro-abortion justices on the U.S. Supreme Court.


An Important Last-Minute Reminder: It All Begins with You

By Jacki Ragan

Four years ago I wrote a story for National Right to Life News under the headline, “An Important Last-Minute Reminder: It All Begins with You.” Why the same headline? Has nothing changed?

To the contrary, everything has changed. A dedicated pro-life President, George W. Bush, was replaced by the most pro-abortion President in our nation’s history who without fail has fulfilled the fondest hopes of Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and EMILY’s List. For nearly four years President Barack Obama gave not an inch in pushing their agenda, all the while insisting he was seeking “common ground.” Whether at home or abroad, his True North is more abortions. Were he to be re-elected, Mr. Obama would only be emboldened to do more to promote the culture of death.



From the President...

There is a very small minority in this country who think abortion should be legal anywhere, any time, for any reason, and they want our tax dollars to pay for it. Unfortunately, one of those in the small minority is our President, Barack Obama. He is, without question, the most pro-abortion president we’ve ever had.
