From the gross to the pathetic, these 7 marketing pitches reveal Planned Parenthood's true colors...and why pro-lifers are winning.
Things looked bleak for the pro-life movement in December of 2008. The most pro-abortion president in history was about to take office after running on a promise to wipe out all federal, state, and local abortion restrictions.

Professor Michael New has researched the question, and the answer is a resounding "no." Instead, the Catholic University of America professor--who earned his PhD at Stanford and did post-doc work at the Harvard-MIT Data Center--determined that pro-life laws, grassroots pro-life efforts, and the use of ultrasound technology have saved millions of lives from abortion.

The United States has a long and sacred tradition of freedom of speech and assembly--even when it comes to expression of unpopular viewpoints.
