In another of today's SCOTUS decisions, the Court ruled in NIFLA v. Becerra that a California law requiring crisis pregnancy centers (pregnancy counseling clinics usually run by pro-life Christians) to post notices that "California has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services (including all FDA-approved methods of contraception), prenatal care, and abortion for eligible women" was an unconstitutional violation of free speech. The vote was the familiar 5-4 and once again came down to the swing vote of Kennedy siding with the conservative wing, and all the liberal justices dissenting.

The March for Life is an amazing event that brings pro-lifers from all over the country to D.C. to march in support of the sanctity of each and every human life. Life, we believe, begins at conception and is not subject to convenience or circumstance of birth. For years, anti-lifers, though they prefer the innocuous "pro-choice" moniker, have argued over fetal viability, have tried to convince themselves (and others) that a fetus is not really a person, and have discussed at length when a fetus becomes a baby.

Every year, pro-lifers from all over the country brave the D.C. winter to stand for the sanctity of life, representing a fraction of national pro-life support. The value and sanctity of each and every human life is by far one of the most, if not THE most important issue of our time.

In March, California's Attorney General slapped David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, with a whopping fifteen felony charges. Daleiden and Merritt, by way of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), released several horrifying undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the price of aborted baby parts. I discussed those charges at length and concluded the only charge that might have some legitimacy was the last charge which addressed Merritt and Daleiden's use of an expired employee ID to login to the Stem Expresses system.

Earlier this month, DNC chair Tom Perez famously declared that every Democrat should be pro-abortion, and apparently a garbled version of this memo seeped down to one Fresno State professor as "every person should be pro-abortion . . . or be silenced." Assistant professor of public health Gregory Thatcher directed his class to erase pro-life messages that Students for Life had written in chalk on the sidewalks at Fresno State, a public university. The interaction between Thatcher and the student reporter resulted in a jaw-dropping exchange in which Thatcher condescendingly explains that such messages are only appropriate in "free speech areas." He further notes, "College campuses are not free speech areas."

It was the most infuriating, heartbreaking, conversation on abortion this Insurrectionist has seen. On his Monday night Fox News show, Tucker Carlson asked Planned Parenthood Executive VP Dawn Laguens six ways to Sunday how she feels about aborting fetuses after five-and-a-half weeks, at which point the baby's heartbeat can be heard. But no matter how he framed it, Laguens refused to answer, hiding behind a series of canned responses about a women's right to choose, etc. At one point, Tucker said, "I'm asking you a human question, and hope you'll favor me with a human answer."
