Over the last several years I have noticed a trend away from pro-abort arguments that dehumanize the preborn toward arguments that rely on “bodily autonomy” based ideas.

This is a guest post from friend and fellow Abolitionist, Alex Johnson. Although we do not wish to spend too much time responding to this sort of lightweight article, it is good that Alex responded. So much could be said about Fred Butler’s article, but one striking that popped out to me was Fred’s admission […]Read more "An Abolitionist Responds to Grace To You’s Fred Butler (Guest Post)"

Many Oklahoman Pro-lifers are very excited by SB 15521 being passed and sent on to the Governor’s Office. News headlines read “Oklahoma Passes Bill Effectively Banning Abortion” and “Oklahoma Lawmakers Pass Bill That Makes Performing An Abortion A Felony”. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Many will think so. I’m not so sure. I WILL say that the version […]Read more "Is Oklahoma Abolishing Abortion?: Part 1"
