On Jan. 19, we published an article on a renewed effort by some legislators in New Jersey to legally redefine marriage. The article referenced a statement issued by New Jersey bishops in 2009, when such a legislative redefinition was first attempted in the state.

On Jan. 20, the Catholic bishops of New Jersey issued a new statement on the defense of marriage. We would like to present that statement in its entirety here.

Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire intends to sign a bill that would redefine marriage, but the National Organization for Marriage wants to prevent the bill from getting to her desk in the first place.

But with another state senator, Mary Margaret Haugen, a Democrat from Camano Island, coming out in favor of the measure, the bill has the 25 votes it needs to pass out of the upper chamber. The bill is also expected to pass the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.

Gregoire, a Democrat who is not seeking re-election, recently changed course on the issue and requested the legislation to change the legal definition of marriage.

Washingtonians voted against this stance in 1998 when...READ MORE

March for Life 2012 dawned cold and rainy. For the thousands of young people who have grown up making the yearly trip to D.C., harsh weather conditions are nothing new. Washington in the middle of January feels like home. We know the city, its parks, landmarks, historic places — and the route we take to be the voices for the unborn.

We come because we are the generation who has been hurt by abortion; youth are missing countless brothers, sisters, cousins, friends ...

Although the day was gloomy, the crowd was joyful, if not a bit too exuberant at times. For once, the group I was with made it to the rally early. We were right in front of the main stage and saw and heard the testimonies...READ MORE

Pro-life Congressmen Speak About the Fight Against Abortion (1515)

01/23/2012 Comments (1)

WASHINGTON — Members of the U.S. Congress reflected on the negative effects of almost 40 years of legal abortion in America, but said they are encouraged that the pro-life movement continues to gain momentum.

The estimated thousands of people who will “descend upon Washington” for the Jan. 23 March for Life, remind the country of its obligation “to protect life and be stewards” of God’s creation, said Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.).

The march took place a day after the Jan. 22 39th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion throughout the United States.

Ellmers told CNA on Jan. 20 that the protection of life is “a mission that is very near and dear to my...READ MORE

NOT DISCOURAGED BY RAIN. Thousands proceed up Constitution Avenue at the March for Life Jan. 23 in Washington.

WASHINGTON — The 2012 March for Life today drew tens of thousands of pro-life Americans to the National Mall, armed with umbrellas and a spirited commitment to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal throughout the United States.

An estimated 54 million unborn children have been killed since the ruling by the high court, and in recent years, the nation has become increasingly more pro-life, particularly among the young. In 2009, a Gallup poll marked the first year that a slight majority of the adult population opposed legal abortion in most cases, and judging by the sea of high school and college students at this year’s march, the young account for...READ MORE

First-Class Pro-Life 'Letter' Sent Via Video (2312)

Seventeen-year-old Caitlin McInnis has made a short film with a strong pro-life message called The Letter.

She proves that creativity, talent and a message that goes to the heart don’t need a multi-million-dollar budget to reach a receptive audience.

The last time she checked, the video had more than 5,000 viewings on YouTube. 

The Letter “deserves to be publicized far and wide,” said John Jansen, the director of Generations for Life, the youth outreach for Pro-Life Action League. Both organizations linked the video on their sites because they wanted it in the public eyes as much as possible.

Pro-life leader Jill Stanek also linked to The Letter on her website.
