The Point

The Point: Death 1, Life 3


John Stonestreet

It’s a battle, but life is winning.

A sad report from WORLD online last week said: “A federal judge ruled last week that the Trump administration must help pregnant minors caught illegally crossing the U.S. border obtain abortions.”

But then scroll down a bit further, and there’s this: “Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker…signed a law barring state health insurance from paying for abortions, except in the case of rape, incest, or danger to the mother’s life.”

And this: The Governor of Tennessee seems likely to sign a bill that would block TennCare payments from going to Planned Parenthood.

And, there’s more: Missouri’s House overwhelmingly passed the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act “that would protect the lives of unborn babies after 20 weeks gestation.”

The battle for life goes on. And in many ways, life is winning. Of course, we can’t do too much about knucklehead federal judges. But there’s much that can be achieved in local communities and through state-level activism. So please, get involved!
