While we have your attention

Did you realize that most medical professionals are told Natural Family Planning (NFP) or Fertility Awareness Based Methods (FABM) have a 24% “failure” rate?
Where are they getting this misinformation? The Centers for Disease Control!

The website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which published a report in 2011 lists FABMs as the least effective method. But this data is based on one study with a low quality research design.

Natural Womanhood and FACTS has an online petition to convince the CDC to update their website and they need 100,000 signatures. LET’S GO FRIENDS OF FERTILITYCARE! Sign the petition today and tell all your friends.  Click on the image below to sign the petition!

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 is the date of our annual Arbonne Fund Raiser in beautiful Jenkintown PA. More details to come. If you wish to volunteer, contact Theresa at 267-342-2512.

Collusion? Planned Parenthood Drafted "Video Tape Law" Used to Charge Pro-Life Journalists



By Cheryl Sullenger
Operation Rescue 

Sacramento, CA - A public records request made by Operation Rescue has yielded e-mails and other documents that show a close working relationship between Planned Parenthood and the California Attorney General's office, especially when it comes to countering pro-life efforts.

Planned Parenthood attorneys often sought meetings and conference calls with members of the Attorney General's Office to discuss a number of issues, including the "Video Tape Law," HB 1671, which was used to criminally charge David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP).

"Planned Parenthood essentially wrote the language that criminalized Daleiden and Merritt's recordings more than a year after they were made," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who also served as a founding member of the CMP. "Planned Parenthood wanted to punish the CMP for exposing their appalling and illegal sale of aborted baby tissue and organs, so they concocted a law that made the legal recordings illegal, then apply it retroactively. David and Sandra's criminal charges are the result of the State of California aiding and abetting Planned Parenthood's vendetta against those who blew the whistle on their ghoulish conduct."

Alaska Legislator Introduces Bill to Define Unborn Baby as a Person and Ban Abortions


By Micaiah Bilger
Life News

An Alaska state lawmaker introduced a controversial bill Monday that would ban all abortions and protect unborn babies’ right to life.

Christian News reports the Life At Conception Act, or House Bill 250, introduced by state Rep. David Eastman, would put into law what the Alaska State Constitution already says.

Eastman said his bill will bring “state law into conformity with the Constitution of the State of Alaska, which provides that ‘all persons have a natural right to life,’ ‘all persons are equal and entitled to equal rights’ and ‘all persons are entitled to equal … protection under the law.’”

The bill also would repeal language from state murder and manslaughter laws that exempt abortions, and make the intentional killing of an unborn baby a crime of murder, Alaska Dispatch News reports.

Eastman said destroying the life of an unborn baby should carry the same penalties as destroying the life of a born child.
“[My bill] makes clear … that human life begins at conception, and that a child waiting to be born in Alaska is an Alaska resident if the mother of that child is an Alaska resident,” Eastman said in a statement. “Further, that child may not be transported to another state or country for the purpose of taking the life of that child.”
He also told the Liberator that lawmakers “have a responsibility to protect the least of these,” a reference to a biblical passage where Jesus tells his followers to take care of the most vulnerable members of society.
News outlets report the bill does not have much chance of passing, and several lawyers said the courts would overturn the bill if it does.

Planned Parenthood Undercover Recordings: Women Seeking Prenatal Care Told 'Just Google It'


Live Action News

When our investigators started sending me back their undercover recordings from our latest Planned Parenthood investigation, I saw a theme emerge.

I call it “Just Google it.”

That’s because that’s the response women heard when they called Planned Parenthood seeking prenatal care, ultrasounds, and adoption services (you know, the services to help them give birth to healthy babies).

Planned Parenthood tells us that the hundreds of millions of dollars taxpayers are forced to give it are going to help pregnant women. Yet when pregnant women ask Planned Parenthood for prenatal care, ultrasounds, and adoption services, the abortion giant often tells them it doesn’t provide them and to “just Google” someplace else.

You can see it happen in the video we just released this morning:




With legislation to defund Planned Parenthood now in the U.S. Senate, it’s never been more important that we reach as many Americans as possible with these truths.

Please take a few moments to watch and share this new video with your friends: https://www.facebook.com/liveaction/videos/

And, for your friends who aren’t on Facebook, email them this link: https://youtu.be/FCZlsQStC2E

After you’ve watched the video, please contact your senators again to urge them to defund Planned Parenthood now. They need to hear from you – even if this is the second or third time – because the vote will be extremely close. 

Clicking this link lets you email or call them directly (I’ve also included a suggested email and talking points): http://cqrcengage.com/liveaction/home?0

It’s up to us to ensure we stop endorsing with our tax dollars Planned Parenthood’s daily killing of 887 preborn children.

Please share the video and reach out to your senators today!

Pro-Life Waco Action Update: Protest in Austin. Rally in Waco. & more



from John Pisciotta

Director of Pro-Life Waco

I haven’t sent an update for over a week. Our big Cocktails for a Cause outreach in Austin on Thursday the 11th was followed by a day of exhaustion. Then came four days of happy events revolving around my grandson Harrison’s graduation from Baylor University. So. This has been an unusual week for me. I’m back.

1. Cocktails for a Cause in Austin. We made their heads spin.
We wanted to send a message to Planned Parenthood bigwigs that they will pay a price for their decision to bring back the shedding of innocent blood the Waco. We succeeded with a high-spirited outreach on the sidewalks of Austin with over 50 pro-life foot soldiers involved. The best way for me to let you know about what happened is to simply insert the Facebook post on the largest pro-life protest in the history of downtown Austin. Also, I include some photos of the sights of this memorable outreach.

Planned Parenthood celebration meets pro-life rejection. On May 11, Cocktails for a Cause, was one of the two major fundraisers of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas in Austin. Pro-life Waco had two big plans for greeting the abortion elite in downtown Austin. We hoped that pro-life foot soldiers from south of Waco would join us in Austin for the protest, life chain, or whatever you want to call it. We also planned that a “billboard” would be flown above us proclaiming “Stop Planned Parenthood: No abortions in Waco or the world.” The latter initiative did not happen because of the rain (rather light) during the protest. Darn it! The coming together of a pro-life remnant on the sidewalk in front of the venue was a big success. At least 50 pro-life foot soldiers from Waco, Temple, Belton, Harker Heights, Copperas Cove, Round Rock, Georgetown, and Austin were on board with high spirits as Planned Parenthood’s supporters arrived and walked by dozens of our signs to get into their festive occasion. Pro-Life Waco protested this event in previous years, but never with his many is 10 people. The reason for the surge this year is that just after Easter, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas resumed the shedding of innocent blood at their Waco facility. At the Austin sidewalk, I had the opportunity to personally greet the CEO of PPGT, Ken Lambrecht. He earns a yearly salary of $405,000. As Director of Pro-Life Waco, I happily receive an annual salary of zero. I am ready to continue the battle with PPGT over their decision to kill babies in the womb in my hometown. The return of abortion to Waco and Central Texas has generated much opposition, which will continue. THANK YOU to all who participated in the outreach on 6th Street in downtown Austin. I hope you will return next year. We must never relent in our opposition to the shedding of innocent blood.





2. Rally 2.0 at Heritage Square on Saturday, June 10, 9-11 a.m.  Recall that we had a Rally on February 11 at the (likely) Planned Parenthood construction site. Now that the heartbreak of abortion has resumed in Waco, will have another Rally on June 10, to help us pivot to our calling of outreach to moms and babies and to prayer that one day Waco will not be on the Texas dishonor roll of cities were babies in the womb are killed. The location of this rally will be Heritage Square in downtown Austin. This is an attractive venue with plenty of parking. The Rally will be in the cool of the morning from 9 to 11 AM. Our terrific lead speaker is a convert from Planned Parenthood clinic manager to dedicated pro-life warrior. Sue Thayer managed a Planned Parenthood clinic in her hometown of Storm Lake, Iowa for 17 years until she was fired in December 0f 2008. The Planned Parenthood affiliate wanted to begin chemical abortions in Storm Lake. With this heart changing, eye opening experience, Sue led a 40 Days for Life campaign at her former clinic in 2009. The PP clinic subsequently closed!!

Below is a video featuring Sue and the celebration of the closing of Planned Parenthood following 40 Days for Life. You can also view it on YouTube using this link. 




Sue has a message that will help us understand the realities of Planned Parenthood and the urgency of contending with PP at every corner.

June 10 is the day before second Sunday. Sue has consented to stay on to be our Second Sunday speaker (with a message different from what she delivers at the Rally).

Please mark your calendar now. I will provide more information later about the Rally. Invite your friends, even out-of-town friends, to join you at the Rally. This would be a good time to invite your out-of-town friends to come to Waco for the Rally and visit “The Silos” of Fixer Upper fame.


This Rally is part of our effort to maintain the momentum for defending life and not let abortion become broadly accepted within the culture of Central Texas and Waco. In the prior years of abortion of--1994 to 2013-- parts of the Waco Christian community tuned out of active concern for the shedding of innocent blood. Abortion is truly a holocaust. If we believe this, our actions, our discipleship, must show it. If you are guessing that you and I will have an opportunity soon to engage in a 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil, you are absolutely correct. Come to the Rally and absorb this and other plans.

3. I-35 Overpass Outreach on Saturday, May 27 10 to noon.  Weather should be great to deliver messages to thousands on Saturday, May 27, from 10 AM to noon at the pedestrian overpass near Baylor. This will be enjoyable and powerful pro-life outreach. If you try it, you will like it. With this pedestrian overpass near Baylor, Waco pro-lifers have the opportunity to spread the Gospel of Life message far and wide by simply taking a short drive to S. 8th Street. Please don’t take a pass on this if it fits with your schedule. Take South 8th street to I-35 and park near Panera Bread (1000 S. 8th Street). There is plenty of street parking available.

I commend you for all you have done to stand up for moms and babies so far in this year of disappointment, challenge and opportunity.




Pro-Life Waco is a local community-based organization with collaborative relationships with regional and national pro-life affiliations. Pro-Life Waco is committed to ending abortion, its damaging effects among women, and promoting chastity.  For more information on Pro-Life Waco, please use this link.



The Real “War on Women” is Christian Women Who are Tortured for Their Faith, Not Laws to Stop Abortion

With all their talk of women’s bodies, the feminist media appear to prioritize abortion and birth control over the grave human rights violations committed by terrorist groups.


By Katie Yoder
Life News


While the media readily report the U.S. “war on women” (think: abortion), they oddly refrain from covering the real war on women abroad – that of women tortured for their faith by terrorists like ISIS.

Last week, Open Doors USA Advocacy Director Kristin Wright spoke with MRC Culture about the “underreported” Christian persecution worldwide and the media’s hesitancy to call it out as genocide. As she told the story of one Iraqi woman fleeing ISIS, she stressed that women even face a “double-persecution” in many countries.

MRC Culture spoke with Wright at the World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians in Washington, D.C. Wright serves as a U.S. advocate for persecuted Christians abroad and travels worldwide to meet with victims. She also pens a Huffington Post column informing Americans of the issue.

At the beginning of the interview, MRC Culture asked Wright for her take on the media coverage of Christian persecution worldwide. According to Wright, journalists must do more.

“Definitely they’re not covering it enough,” Wright said of the “underreported” issue. “We definitely should be seeing and hearing more about the situation for Christians who face persecution as well as other faith groups.”
Wright urged the media to tell more stories – and to continue reporting others. She pointed to the 276 Chibok girls in kidnapped by Boko Haram three years ago.
“This is a story that really kind of splashed across international headlines … when it originally happened,” she said. “And now, what have we heard from this over the last three years? Almost nothing.” Even as, she noted, Boko Haram released 82 girls last week.
While U.S. politicians casually throw around the term “war on women,” Wright applied it more seriously to women persecuted abroad.
“There definitely is a war on women abroad. There’s no question about that,” she added. “If you look at the ways in which women suffer, it is unique to women.”

Meet Susan B. Anthony's List's Government Affairs Team



By Carlyle Gregory
Political Consultant

With the election of President Trump, a GOP majority in the US Senate and a pro-life majority in the House of Representatives, the stakes have never been higher on Capitol Hill for the Pro-Life Movement.

Getting the right people elected, and defeating those who support abortion, is only half the battle. Legislation has to be drafted, argued, debated, amended and finally voted on. To make sure we win the battle of the “Hill” as well as the battle of the ballot box, the SBA List has assembled a Government Affairs Team to fight for human life in Washington.

When Americans hear the word “lobbyist” the image they dredge up is a of a corpulent cigar-smoking, spats-wearing knock off of the top hat-wearing “millionaire” in the Monopoly board game, standing outside the door to the House Chamber handing out hundred dollar bills to passing rows of jelly-spined Congressmen.

There was some truth to that image once, but today’s lobbying is more sophisticated, more nuanced and much more complicated. Now information is power. Government affairs means helping to draft legislative language, assisting with issues research, coalition building, and, yes, letting our representatives know the concerns of their constituents.

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfield famously asserted that you go to war with the army you have. We are lucky that in the war for unborn children, the SBA List “army” is composed of the highest quality pro-life government affairs team in Washington.


Marjorie Dannenfelser. Yes, she’s the president of SBA List, and her portfolio contains many other duties like fundraising, administration and serving as the cheerleader and mother confessor to the SBA List staff, but Marjorie is always in the thick of things on Capitol Hill. Twenty years of working (and founding) the SBA List means that she knows a lot of Congressmen and Senators on a first name basis. Combining her in-depth knowledge of the legislative process and the strength of the organization she heads, Marjorie lends force to our efforts on Capitol Hill. When she calls, they listen.



Marilyn Musgrave is SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. Musgrave was a pro-life hero in the Colorado House and Senate, before graduating to Congress, where she served three terms representing Colorado’s 4 th CD. She knows the “dance of legislation” inside and out and is well-respected on Capitol Hill. Her phone calls get answered.




Billy Valentine is the SBA List’s Vice President of Policy. Billy has run political campaigns and worked on Capitol Hill for pro-life stalwarts like Chris Smith (R-NJ) and former Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS). A dynamo of energy, he gets more done before breakfast than most of us do all day. He blends the politics of the Pro-Life Movement with a canny sense of what is possible on Capitol Hill to score successes for our cause.



The newest addition to the team, Autumn Christensen, is the Director of Policy at SBA List. She has spent over a decade on Capitol Hill working for pro-life members of Congress, and staffed the bipartisan Congressional Pro-life Caucus. She has written pro- life legislation, drafted rules and amendments and worked with pro-life partisans on efforts to save human lives. She knows the legislative system inside and out, and brings a wealth of experience to the SBA List Team.



Eric Schmitz has served as Legislative Director for SBA List since October of 2014. A young man with extensive of legislative experience, he has worked for pro-life legislators both in Maryland and at the federal level, including Congressman Bartlett (R- MD). Eric is a constant presence on Capitol Hill and an expert at bringing SBA’s influence to bear at hearings and mark-up sessions where the real work of the Congress gets done.





Chuck Donovan leads the Charlotte Lozier Institute. Chuck and the Lozier Institute are critical to our success, Chuck served as legislative director the National Right to Life Committee, worked in the Reagan White House, helped lead the Family Research Council for nearly two decades and has been a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation. He has written and co-authored numerous books and papers on family topics and has appeared time and again on the various TV and cable networks. Chuck and the Lozier Institute supply our team -- and the Congress -- with that most valuable commodity, solid reliable information about abortion and its impact on America.

Driven by a strong desire to win the battle to save human lives, SBA List Government Affairs Team is the thin edge of the spear in the life movement’s fight on Capitol Hill.

I hope you enjoyed meeting our Government Affairs team. I am so glad to be able to work alongside them - and YOU - as we fight together for the right to life of precious unborn babies.

For Life,
Mallory Quigley
Director of Communications
Susan B. Anthony List
