Their son had a tumor and the greatest opportunity for survival was surgery in the womb. It is amazing how doctors can address a person’s medical challenges even before they are born.

Federal legislative alert

S. 1696 and H.R. 3471, both formally titled the "Women's Health Protection Act," have the support of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, NARAL, and other pro-abortion activist groups. A more accurate title for this radical federal bill would be the "Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act." The bill, if enacted and upheld by the federal courts, would invalidate nearly all state limitations on abortion, including waiting periods and women's right-to-know laws.
