Want to Elect a Pro-Life President? Here’s what NOT to do.
By Karen Cross, National Right to Life Political Director
Do you want to elect a pro-life president?
Nearly eight years of Obama’s presidency has already been devastating. The Obama presidency brought us two new pro-abortion Supreme Court justices, a healthcare law that expands abortion and threatens the vulnerable, and vows to veto pro-life legislation, including a bill that would protect unborn babies 20 weeks and older from painful late abortions, and a bill that would defund abortion providers.
We cannot afford four - let alone
eight - more years of a president that
does not value the right to life.

United Nations Committee Affirms
David A. Grimes
In a landmark case, Peru has compensated a woman for denying her a medically indicated abortion. In 2001, K.L. was a 17-year-old who was diagnosed as having a fetus with anencephaly at 14 weeks’ gestation. As described below, this fetal anomaly is routinely lethal. Although abortion was legal in Peru in this circumstance, a hospital director refused her request for an abortion. She was forced to continue her pregnancy and deliver the doomed fetus, which survived only four days. Working with human rights lawyers, K.L. filed a complaint with the United Nations Human Rights Committee, based in Geneva. In 2005, the Committee concluded that Peru had violated several articles of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and it ordered financial compensation to K.L. Fifteen years after the incident, reparations were finally made for Peru’s “cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment.” This marked the first time a United Nations Committee had held a country accountable for failing to ensure access to safe, legal abortion.
