Pro-lifers at my alma mater, the University of Illinois, explain why they are pro-life in the above video.  They are on the cutting edge of a cultural shift on abortion that is magnificent to behold.  The Gallup poll on abortion released today illustrates this.

The 41% of Americans who now identify themselves as “pro-choice” is down from 47% last July and is one percentage point below the previous record low in Gallup trends, recorded in May 2009. Fifty percent now call themselves “pro-life,” one point shy of the record high, also from May 2009.

The trend lines are clear.  In 2001 in the Gallup poll 56% identified as “pro-choice”, while 30% identified as pro-life.  It has been a long and arduous struggle, but we pro-lifers are clearly winning the battle.  The wiser pro-aborts understand this and are terrified at the trends they see.  With the media, academia and the entertainment industry stacked against us, we are still winning.  It is a miracle, but we are a cause that believes in miracles, and that each new human life is such a miracle.

Archbishop Carlo Vigano has some questions about the Vatican Dog and Pony Sex Abuse Summit:   I am praying intensely for the


  1. So tell me: if a majority of Americans were to democraticly vote pro-life – that is to say, outlaw abortion in an election – would the Democrats then support democracy?

    Don’t think so. The last thing they want is liberty.

  2. As has been said many times before, future generations are going to look back with horror at our generation, for the wholesale slaughter of innocents that we have initiated and watched – many with disinterest.

  3. Abortion seems like something which shows who truly loves people and those who expect return from what they do.

  4. From the “Catholics for Choice” leader’s Feb 18 WaPo editorial as given from the link:

    “[The fetus] may not have a right to life, and its value may not be equal to that of the pregnant woman, but ending the life of a fetus is not a morally insignificant event….”

    How can anybody say that one life is somehow unequal to another? This is the fascist view, completely contrary to “all are created equal” and the idea that also underlies the acceptability of genocide, ethnic cleansing, concentration camps and slavery.

    At least there’s a recognition that murder is somehow “morally significant.” Maybe that will eventually save this woman from eternal perfidy, but there’s going to be a very long spell in Purgatory.

  5. Thanks McClarey, that last sentence there got me alittle choked up here at work.
    Had to quickly hide my face so that no one would see.
    My wife and I are about to have our first miracle July 10th.

  6. I hate to be the bearer of not so good news, but if you look at the last stat – Circumstances under which abortion should be legal – the numbers seem pretty consistent over time (52% under some circumstances, 25% under any circumstances, 20% under no circumstances). It appears “pro-choice” has gotten the bad rep it deserves, and fewer people want to self identify as such (much like “liberal”). So while fewer want to label themselves as pro-choice, functionally there is still a sizeable majority that believes abortion should be legal at least under some circumstances (77%). On the bright side, at least now that “pro-choice” appears to be a dirty word, maybe more folks will actually start thinking about what the “choice” we are allowing to take place actually entails.

  7. The vast majority of the 52% that say legal under some circumstances are probably thinking of rape, incest or the life of the mother, in other words an infintesimal portion of current abortions. I think the poll indicates a functionally pro-life majority of 72%. The culture is shifting on abortion and this poll reflects that shift. We ban abortion in all but the so-called hard cases and then we build a majority to ban it in all cases. We get there by baby steps.

  8. “I think the poll indicates a functionally pro-life majority of 72%.”

    But the liberal progressive Democrats will never ever give up the “right” to murder whom they so willingly create by their sexual promiscuity.

  9. Ah but we will never give up either Paul, and there are more of us and the disparity in numbers will only increase in our favor as time goes on. The pro-abortion movement is the only movement I can think of in history fighting solely for the right to slay their own kids. Additionally, the pro-abortion mentality is fundamentally a creation of the latter half of the twentieth century. Christian opposition to abortion has existed for two millenia. I would not bet on the staying power of the pro-aborts in the long run.

  10. Paul, Don, to borrow from Darwin…

    Because most philosophies that frown on reproduction don’t survive.

  11. Good point big Tex I think there was a group of people a long time ago that thought that reproduction was immoral, they are undoubtedly gone now.
