We've hit the ground running in 2018!

Things aren?t slowing down any time soon as we head into the?largest spring 40 Days for Life campaign ever!?Here's a short rundown on a few important items:

New podcast episode ? 'Aborting Free Speech'

"Aborting Free Speech"?examines a critical issue: an effort by pro-abortion forces to eliminate pro-life activities from the public square.?

The most serious threats are currently in Canada and the United Kingdom, but efforts continue to spring up in the US as well.

In the most extreme examples,?it could be considered a crime to merely hand someone a pro-life leaflet?within a certain distance from the door of an abortion facility. So much for free speech!

Thankfully, good pro-life attorneys are?fighting these outlandish proposals?and standing up for your rights to peacefully speak out.
