We got some powerful proof this month that the pro-life position is picking up massive momentum.
In Texas, the duly elected state legislature passed a 20-week abortion ban, over NARAL's and Planned Parenthood's caterwauling. Abortion centers will be held to the same standards as other ambulatory surgical centers, and abortionists will need admitting privileges at a hospital no more than thirty miles away.

Abortion advocates did everything they could to thwart the vote, including trying to smuggle jars of human waste into the Texas Capitol to throw at legislators. But the Lone Star State prevailed, and we're another step closer to protecting the inherent dignity of every human being.
Carhart's not the only one endangering women and children every day. Our Inhuman investigation has uncovered horrors across the country.
Yes, pro-lifers still have their work cut out for them â€“ even in the states where we're making progress. After all, pain-capability is not what determines humanity. Only the babies lucky enough to be twenty weeks old will be safe in Texas...and that's only if an unelected judge doesn't strike down the law (as they're fond of doing). Even if everything works out perfectly, the law doesn't go into effect until next September.
So what do we do in the meantime? Educate our country on the reality, the gruesomeness, and the utter cruelty of abortion. Share facts like these with your friends and family:
By 4 weeks' gestation, a baby in the womb has already formed nearly all of his major organs and body systems. This includes his heart, which is beating.
The baby's vocal chords start forming around 10 weeks' gestation. He'll be sucking his thumb - which has a unique fingerprint - at this time, too.
Every child in the womb is both human and alive from the moment he is conceived. At no point does he stop being either of those things, only to somehow "regain" his humanity or vitality at an arbitrary gestation point (such as at birth, or even at when he can feel pain).
