South Korea cracks down on illegal abortions, calls it 'immoral' procedure

According to reports, around 3,000 abortions take place every day in South Korea, even though it is illegal in the country.

The government has cracked down the punishments for those performing abortions, and many doctors have temporarily halted the practice.

Please pray that many lives will be saved and that women and men will be find compassion, hope, and help when they are faced with pregnancy decisions.

Puzzling: The government is imposing penalties on doctors who do illegal abortions -- so a group of doctors have ceased their illegal abortions in protest.

Wales nixes Down syndrome pamphlet 'totally biased toward termination'

In Wales, advocacy has led officials to change a pamphlet after parents complained that it was overly negative and pushed women towards abortion.

The new pamphlet points out that most children with Down syndrome are able to live healthy, happy, fulfilled lives, and currently live to be in their 60s.

How God is Transforming the Church's Response to Abortion

This is an amazing testimony about how members of the church can help young women considering abortion by stepping up and offering authentic support.

The ministry I’ve been called to—ministry to the abortion-vulnerable—is very challenging: it is private and hidden; further, it has been politicized and disconnected from the gospel, discipleship, and grace. If things are going to change, the church must lead.

Should a man be forced by the state to pay child support for a child that he did not want prior to birth? Learn why pro-choice activists have trouble answering this question.

Abortion pills now available by mail in US -- but FDA is investigating

Not only are these drugs deadly for unborn babies, this "abortion by mail" system can be extremely dangerous for women.

"Handing out deadly drugs through the mail is a disaster waiting to happen." - Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America

Signaling a new chapter in the battle over abortion access in the United States, a European organization has stepped into the fray, providing Americans a way to get doctor-prescribed pills by mail to medically induce abortions at home.

What Atoms Can Teach Us About Marriage

It has become popular among the cultural elite to speak about "the end of the nuclear family." Is the nuclear family really dead?

The nuclear family is irreplaceable. The extended family literally can’t exist without the nuclear family. Put another way, the extended family only has meaning and stability if there is a nucleus around which it can orbit. The village will never replace a mother and father who are married.

Adoption has played a huge role in Barb Pearson-Cramer’s life. She was adopted as a newborn; she and her husband, Trevor, are parents to three adopted children and one biological child; and she runs a private adoption agency.

You can read her story below.

Families are made in many ways. For the Pearson and Cramer families, adoption has been a blessing for generations.

Pro-Life Generosity Changed Her Mind About Abortion

Staring down at the positive pregnancy test in her hands, Mariana felt torn. She had always dreamed of being a mom one day, once she had a good job and was married. But Mariana was young and just wasn’t ready to have a baby.

What happened next would change her life.

The idea of providing for herself and her baby on her own seemed impossible. She was certain that abortion was her only way forward...until she experienced the generosity of pro-life people.

Unborn or Preborn? Why We Still Say Unborn

We use “unborn” for a few reasons.

Why Men Aren’t Responsible For 100% of Unplanned Pregnancies

Instead of saying that men are responsible for “100% of all unplanned pregnancies,” we should talk about how men and women are responsible for unplanned pregnancy. (Other than in cases of rape and abuse.)

Most importantly, we should stop telling ourselves that sex is amoral and transactional and then complain when our experiences don’t match our rhetoric. It’s time to return to the sacred tradition that held that sex was immensely moral and incredibly powerful. Acting like it’s not doesn’t help women or men.

I recently encountered a pro-choice argument that has gone viral. Gabrielle Stanley Blair, a mother of six from California, argued that “men are 100% responsible for unwanted pregnancies.” Here are the logical fallacies of her argument.

How Overturning Roe v. Wade Might Strengthen Abortion In America

Overturning Roe should be the strategy, not the goal.

It’s not just about saving the baby, it’s about raising a child and helping families thrive. Life decisions need life support.

Just as bitterness over the end of slavery sparked horrendous backlash over the coming decades, the end of Roe v. Wade could turn into a pyrrhic victory.

“Since my defect was not discovered until after my arrival, my parents were given the alternative choice to withhold feeding and treatment and allow me to die.”

Despite her doctor’s poor prognosis, Misty is now thriving, and she is a published author.

Had doctors caught Misty's spina bifida on ultrasound, they would have insisted on abortion for 'low quality' of life. Today, she is married and an author.

Public buildings illuminated to raise pregnancy and infant loss awareness

In the United States, October marks Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Internationally, many other countries likewise designate October as a time to raise awareness and offer grieving parents an opportunity to share their stories.

The remembrance commemorates babies who died during pregnancy, at birth, or soon after.

One way many cities are participating in efforts to raise awareness is by illuminating prominent building in pink and blue to honor babies who have died.

Pregnancy loss is one of the most difficult things a parent can experience, and every October, these babies' lives are commemmorated.
