Social movement that advocates for the right of access to abortion services
Language wields more power than we often consider, particularly when it comes to sexuality.As we've noticed, the words we use to discuss topics like abortion - 'pro-life' and 'pro-choice' - carry substantial weight and can reveal underlying worldviews. We've also seen a fascinating evolution in how society talks about gender transitioning, shifting from 'sex change operation' to 'gender reassignment surgery', and now, 'gender confirmation surgery'.So, we're going to delve into these linguistic nuances and explore how changing terms reflect changing societal attitudes.But it's not just about linguistics.The conversation takes a deeper turn as we consider the very foundation of our understanding of gender and sexuality. In a world that has seemingly redefined these terms without concrete scientific proof, it's important to approach this discussion with compassion and grace.For those who are caught up in this societal shift, and for those who have undergone extreme body alterations, we extend our deepest empathy. Remember, it is only through God's words that we find the truth.Tune in as we navigate these complex waters, seeking truth and understanding in every conversation.Want us to talk about a specific topic?

President Donald Trump recently blasted Florida's six-week abortion ban, calling it a “terrible mistake.” Trump said that as president, he'd find a gestational age limit that would please both abortion supporters and pro-lifers. The surprising remarks were at odds with Trump's record as America's most pro-life president. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss just what in the world Trump was talking about.
You may have recently heard the story of Lizzie Marbach who shared a tweet, "There's no hope for any of us outside of having faith in Jesus Christ alone." Lizzie was fired for this tweet, and no, she didn't work for Google or some other woke company. She worked for Ohio Right to Life! That's right, Lizzie was fired from a pro-life organization for sharing the gospel. Join us for this shocking interview where Lizzie exposes the rot that is going on within Pro-Life Organziations and conservative politicians!Abolitionists Rising YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/@AbolitionistsRisingEnd Abortion Now (Jeff Durbin) - https://endabortionnow.com/jeff-durbin/Thanks for tuning in!

A lot of Christians justified a vote for Trump the first time because of his professed pro-life stance--but recently Trump called a 6-week abortion ban "a terrible thing". As he takes more of a tone of compromise, causing reaction from a number of pro-life organizations, how pro-life does a candidate need to be to earn our trust--and can that trust be lost?

The September 27-November 5 40 Days for Life campaign begins next week in 681 cities worldwide. And while more than a million people around the world have participated in a 40 Days for Life campaign, many pro-lifers haven't made it out to the sidewalk. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we share the most common reasons pro-lifers haven't prayed at their local vigil…and then we overcome those objections so you no longer have any reason to avoid going out and saving a mom and baby from abortion!
Big pod this week, diving right in! Soooo remember how Kansas voted to protect abortion access in a landslide ballot initiative? Guess that didn't matter to the anti-abortion babadooks in the Kansas legislature. Ever since that win, they have FOUR DIFFERENT abortion restrictions that are laughably terrifying. We are breaking down every single one of them and asking how these creeps keep getting elected when the people of Kansas voted overwhelmingly against these kinds of policies. And all this is happening while in the same week, 12 more people just sued because they almost died without abortion access. It's grim, but we always bring the facts, the funny, and the ways you can fight back! PLUS, Barry Lynn from Americans United For Separation of Church and State is our guest! He's been fighting to keep religion out of government and our underpants forEVER, and he's dishing with your Buzzkills about his entire life of being “Paid To Piss People Off” (that's the name of his memoirs!). This guy has been in the abortion fight from the beginning. Also, he has gossip about Dead Phyllis Schlafly.OPERATION SAVE ABORTION: You can still join the 10,000+ womb warriors fighting the patriarchy by listening to our five-part OpSave pod series and Mifepristone Panel by clicking HERE for episodes, your toolkit, marching orders, and moreROE-CABULARYDiscovery- the process by which the two sides in a lawsuit exchange information about the evidence and witnesses they will present to avoid a “trial by ambush,” according to the American Bar Association, the professional association for lawyers, law students and judges.”SHOW NOTESHOSTS:Lizz Winstead @LizzWinsteadMoji Alawode-El @MojiLocksNEWS DUMPER:Alyssa Al-Dookhi @TheDooknessSPECIAL GUESTS: Barry Lynn TW/IG: @barrywlynn/ @realrevbarrylynnWebsite: barrywlynn.comFacebook: Barry W.

In a post-Dobbs political landscape, abortion policy has become the great divider. But disagreements over abortion cannot stifle much-needed conversations about what can be done to support American women, mothers, fathers, and children. To nobody's surprise, WTH co-host Marc is a conservative. His colleague at the Washington Post Alyssa Rosenberg, is liberal. Together, they undertook the critical task that one might expect from our lawmakers, and put their differences aside to write a productive, respectful, and intelligent guideline for family policies that have been proposed by lawmakers, yet to be passed. They selected policies that did not require them to compromise on their respective positions on abortion, and those that have a serious chance of becoming law if the work is done by Congress. It is a model of good-faith hard work, and the kind that is rare among those who actually make policy – we commend you to read it here. Alyssa Rosenberg writes about mass culture, parenting, and gender for The Washington Post's Opinions section. Before coming to The Post in 2014, Alyssa was the culture editor at ThinkProgress, the television columnist at Women and Hollywood, a columnist for the XX Factor at Slate and a correspondent for The Atlantic.com.Marc Thiessen writes a column for The Post on foreign and domestic policy. He is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and the former chief speechwriter for President George W. Bush. He is a Fox News contributor.Download the transcript here.
Last month, the Center for Biblical Worldview at Family Research Council released the results of a comprehensive survey of American Christians' attitudes on a variety of issues--including abortion. And these aren't just Christians in name only. All respondents attend church services at least monthly. More than 70 percent attend weekly. There's good news and bad news. But most of all, there's opportunity. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we dive deeply into what American churchgoers really think about abortion.
This week John and Jonathan discuss the settelment of a lawsuit that Right to Life won, against the State of California. Then they take a darker turn when news breaks that Mexico's Supreme Court has ruled abortion a "human right" across the country.
Last month, the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals found that the FDA wrongfully removed critical restrictions around access to chemical abortion. In 2021, the Biden administration decided to make mifepristone, the first of two drugs used to terminate pregnancies, permanently available via mail. Moreover, it eliminated the requirement for a doctor's visit. According to the 5th Circuit, the FDA policy violates longstanding federal law, and the FDA must discontinue mail-order abortion. Even more shocking, the FDA removed these restrictions in spite of serious concerns about the drug's adverse effects. Such effects have been well known since before the drug's approval in 2000. Yet the FDA, rather than creating more safeguards around the drug, decided to make it widely available without requiring so much as one in-person doctor's visit. The court's ruling is a victory for human rights and upholds what Christians have long preached: that the lives of both unborn children and women have irrevocable, God-given value.

On the final day of Moshe's life, he gathers the entire nation for a parting message. After forging another covenant between the nation and God and explicating the consequences thereof, Moshe presents the nation with a choice: "Behold I have placed before you today: life and good vs. death and bad... Choose life." There are two options for us: life that amounts to good or death that amounts to bad. What is the nature of this binary choice? What is Moshe trying to convey to the Nation? Why are we commanded to choose life? Isn't it obvious that any sensible person will make that choice? In the final parsha Podcast before Rosh Hashana, we explore the stark choice that Moshe placed before the Nation, a choice that truthfully faces each one of us. – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –This Parsha Podcast is dedicated by my dear friend, Dr. Paul Block, in loving memory and leilui nishmas his mother, Mrs. Mildred Block OB"M, מינדל בת רב צבי הירש, whose first yartzeit is כב אלול.

Pro-lifers are used to getting kicked in the teeth by the courts... ...but that's changing. The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. 40 Days for Life volunteer Mark Houck was acquitted in an hour. A Texas court ruled against a reckless expansion of abortion pills. A New York county just abandoned a bubble zone provision before federal courts could strike it down. And there's more to come with the launch of the 40 Days for Life Institute of Law and Justice. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, 40 Days for Life general counsel Matt Britton breaks down the latest legal developments in post-Roe America--including why pro-lifers are finally winning in court.
While it's no secret the Church's stance on abortion, what about those who identify as Pro-Life? We go beyond Church doctrine into the personal views of our panelists on the reasons behind being pro-life aside from just “the Church says so” or “I just do what I'm told.” One panelist even works at a Pregnancy Aid Clinic, being on the front lines of the issue and coming face-to-face with women facing the question of whether to have a baby, some of whom do and some don't.

Join me for a one-on-one discussion with Doni Chamberlain, a Shasta county, California journalist who has been targeted by Right-Wing extremists who are looking to reshape the region.
In hour 1 of The Marc Cox Morning Show, Marc starts off the show with "The Short List". Marc then discusses Hurricane Idalia and hears Scott Jagow's hurricane experience. Marc then shares the frustration from families of lost one's due to during the military's withdrawal from Afghanistan. He discusses how Missouri Legislature missed an opportunity by not passing Initiative Petition Reform last year. As a result, Planned Parenthood and Pro Choice supporters are raising money in order to codify abortion until the day of birth in the state of Missouri in the Constitution.

A few weeks ago, voters in Ohio rejected a ballot measure that would have made it harder to amend the state's constitution. As it stands, to amend Ohio's constitution only requires 50% of the vote plus one. Issue 1 would have raised that threshold to 60%. The turnout for this vote was unexpectedly high for what appeared to be a procedural change. It was the only issue on the ballot. However, this vote was not merely about a procedure. It was also about abortion. In November, abortion advocates will put forth a proposal to enshrine the “right” to an abortion in Ohio's constitution, with no restrictions on the age of the baby or the mother. Had Issue 1 succeeded in Ohio, this new amendment would have been much more difficult to pass. In other words, Issue 1 was the latest chapter in the story of abortion in post-Dobbs America. Last year, within six months of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, voters in three states, Vermont, California, and Michigan, added a right to abortion to their constitutions. Kentucky voters rejected a constitutional amendment that would have prohibited almost all abortions. And, in Montana, voters rejected a measure to mandate that doctors care for babies born alive after botched abortions. The Ohio amendment was not technically an abortion vote, and it strained under additional political realities. Still, we have enough data at this point to assume how state-level politics on abortion are trending. For decades, under the judicial tyranny of Roe v. Wade, pro-life activism aimed to make abortion unthinkable. The primary strategy was to show that the preborn in question are, indeed, babies by, among other means, making the philosophical arguments in defense of life, offering empirical evidence through funding ultrasound machines and distributing tiny life-size models of preborn babies. This was done in the context of a growing and constantly improving network of care centers offered to women facing unexpected pregnancies. All of this work made a significant difference and saved an incalculable number of lives. However, it is important to note that the Supreme Court's decision in the Dobbs case was not a popular vote. It was a welcome gift of God to the cause, and a world without Roe is better than a world with Roe. However, it is best to remember that it was a court case and should not be viewed as a cultural bellwether. While it may be the case that at least some of these state level ballot initiatives may have fared better had they been more clearly worded, the most obvious takeaway is that all our thinking about abortion is happening in the context of a culture steeped in relativism. People are increasingly willing to grant that the preborn is a baby (or at least increasingly unable to pretend it isn't), but they also tend to have a follow-up question many pro-life activists didn't anticipate: “So what?” For many, perhaps the vast majority of people, the highest moral good is individual autonomy, and the default position on abortion is permissiveness. Even those who say they'd “never have an abortion” repeatedly tell pollsters they aren't comfortable taking away that option for somebody else. In that context, making rules that curb autonomy or being a tiny person who interferes with that autonomy are cardinal sins. Relativism and the related commitment to personal autonomy are evils built on the false premise that we are the creator and not creatures. In this worldview framework, the only real moral errors are not having the world I desire, being made to do something I don't want to do, or being prevented from some life I imagine will make me happy. Any meaningful pro-life agenda must account for this situation on the grounds that we are defending life in a cultural moment in which many are willing to sacrifice everything, even what is acknowledged as a child, to pursue these ends. Ultimately, we'll need to demonstrate, in both word, and deed, that this premise is false, untenable, and enables great evil. For example, abortion does not free and empower women, despite what has been claimed for decades. We now know that 7 out of every 10 women seeking an abortion feel pressured or coerced. Of course, these women still have a choice, but this is anything but “autonomy” and freedom. Christians know what happens when “everyone does what is right in their own eyes.” Cultures that worship personal autonomy inevitably violate human dignity. Within a Christian worldview, the dignity of every human person as image bearers supersedes their potential to infringe on someone's perceived autonomy. We were made for higher and deeper things than feeling comfortable and happy from one moment to the next. All we have learned about where we really are in this post-Roe moment points to the fact that there will be no shortcuts, legal or otherwise, in our ongoing efforts to protect preborn life. We cannot stop stressing the fact that every preborn child is a unique, valuable, and fully human image bearer of God. We'll need to champion the very strange idea that marriage, sex, and babies go together and, when they do, they bring strength and flourishing to society. We'll need to stop enabling and rewarding men who pressure, coerce, or abandon pregnant women, while helping women deal with crisis pregnancies. Let's get to work. This Breakpoint was co-authored by Maria Baer. For more resources to live like a Christian in this cultural moment, go to breakpoint.org.

Join me for another one-on-one discussion on all things political with Chris Matthews, political commentator, the former host of Hardball on MSNBC and author of the book "This Country: My Life in Politics and History."
A recent tweet featured a clip of a sermon on Psalm 139. In that Psalm, David famously declares, “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.” The preacher applied the passage to the place of abortion in our culture, noting that abortion is a subject that makes people feel uncomfortable and has been politicized to the detriment of society. So far, so good. Then the pastor, wearing vestments emblazoned with Planned Parenthood's insignia, went on to celebrate abortion, complaining about harmful messaging from pro-lifers and the Church's “failure” to uphold Roe v. Wade's abortion regime. She then claimed that she felt “no guilt, no shame, no sin” for her own two abortions. A seared conscience is far worse than a guilty one. The Church has failed on the issue of abortion, but the failure is that anyone could enter a pew, much less the pulpit, and still think that God considers abortion anything less than an abomination.
Recently on The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we had a two-part series looking back on the good, the bad, and the ugly of “Pride Month” (season 8, episode 29, on the L.A. Dodgers and the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" and season 8, episode 30, on signs that the Pride Movement has run its course). Some pro-lifers would prefer to ignore LGBTQ issues. After all, what does homosexuality have to do with abortion? Should we “stick to abortion”? On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we'll share why defending unborn babies and God's design for sexuality go hand in hand.
A recent BBC article questioned what last year's Dobbs decision could mean for in vitro fertilization. The owner of a self-described “boutique fertility clinic” in Austin, Texas, told reporters that she's worried abortion restrictions will be bad for business: “If you say life begins at fertili[z]ation, then how can I grow an embryo in a lab, or biopsy it for genetic testing, or freeze it or thaw it, or implant it in somebody, or leave it frozen?” These questions should have been asked before IVF became big business. In most fertility clinics today, human lives are put in real danger, especially those embryos designated “extra.” These are either aborted, left indefinitely on ice, discarded, or donated for medical experimentation. The few clinics committed to a more (though not completely) ethical IVF, by creating a single embryo at a time or requiring that every embryo is implanted, won't be affected by abortion restrictions, but most of them will. And they should be.
This week John and Jonathan discuss the court ruling restricting pill abortions, removing the Obama and Biden era policies, and loosening regulations. They also discuss the Ohio vote and what that could mean for an abortion ballot vote later this year.
In the penultimate episode of the Agnes Varda series, THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE, Carter and I discuss her 1977 film, ONE SINGS, THE OTHER DOESN'T. In this episode, we talk about abortion, Agnes' personal history with having an illegal abortion and being one of the 343 women who signed The Manifesto of the 343, which would pave the way for the legalization of abortion in France in 1975. We go over the history of France and abortion along with how the male gaze and female friendships are tackled in this film.Abortion Funds:https://www.yellowhammerfund.org/https://abortionfunds.org/need-abortion/Carter Moon's Writings:https://merrygoroundmagazine.com/author/carter/Support Me:linktr.ee/FromMyLipsPod

Are men allowed to have an opinion on abortion? For all the pro-abortion rallying cries of "No uterus, no opinion," men play a vital role in the abortion debate.

The award for the weirdest and most misleading headline of the year goes to a recent article in the Washington Post that announced, “An abortion ban made them teen parents.” The article tells the story of Billy and Brooke High and describes her pregnancy at age 18 as something that just “happened” because they were hanging out after meeting at a skate park. Brooke gave birth to twins soon after the Dobbs decision. She wanted an abortion but would have had to drive 13 hours to get one. Instead, she kept the babies and married their father. Because all of this is hard, the Washington Post implies, neither the children nor the marriage should have ever happened. Billy's and Brooke's perspective on the other hand is that day-to-day life is really hard. And being parents is growing them up, though they didn't have great examples. What we can learn from the Post article is not where babies come from, but what young families need.
Brooke Alexander and Billy High had been dating for just a few months. But a late-summer pregnancy test in 2021 changed everything. Brooke was carrying twins! The Washington Post first reported on Brooke and Billy just days before the Supreme Court overturned Roe, seemingly lamenting that the Texas Heartbeat Act prevented them from getting an abortion. A little more than a year later, The Washington Post is checking in with them again with an article that suggests their lives would have been much better had they gotten an abortion instead of their two beautiful little girls. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we break down the irresponsible articles.
US correspondent Ron Elving joins Susie to talk about the wait for Donald Trump's next indictment, expected from Fulton County Georgia over claims he tried to overturn the 2020 election result by asking officials to "find" votes for him. And Ohio voters are about to be asked whether they want the minimum threshold required to pass constitutional amendments raised - which some see as a proxy vote on the state's abortion laws. Ron Elving is Senior Editor and Correspondent on the Washington Desk for NPR News.

It's no secret that abortion is one of the most controversial topics of our time. Naturally, anger arises in people on both sides of the issue. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss beautiful encounters in which 40 Days for Life participants' peaceful, loving approach has led angry people to make a 180-degree turn in their behavior and attitude toward pro-lifers.
Nearly four weeks have passed since “Pride Month” ended. But this year, the month-long celebration of sexual confusion and perversion went out with a whimper. After two decades of losing ground on marriage, family, and our very nature, is 2023 the year the Western World begins the long journey back to sanity? It's too early to tell, but June provided signs that the culture just might be sick of celebrating sexual deviance. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we recap seven encouraging victories of this year's Pride Month.
