The Washington Times quotes ARTL in reporting on the malpractice accusations against Dr. Michael Kamrava, the "Octo-mom's" fertility doctor:
Bob Enyart, spokesman for American Right To Life, said he agrees with the medical board's action and insists that fertility doctors need boundaries, including treating embryos as persons rather than disposable commodities.
"Recognizing the personhood of these kids will end up protecting doctors, their patients, and their patient's children," he said.
MEDIA ADVISORY, July 2 /Christian Newswire/ — Colorado’s Amendment 62 personhood campaign is set to launch a remarkable Internet tool, MyCampaignTracker.org, on July 4th, 2010. The Tracker will help our state secure recognition of the right to life acknowledged by America’s Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…”
“We have human rights because we are made in our Creator’s image and likeness,” said amendment co-sponsor Leslie Hanks, “and therefore we have a moral obligation to protect and love our children, born and preborn.”
MyCampaignTracker.org is a multi-functioning website designed to capitalize on the grassroots personhood movement in Colorado, and will be utilized to saturate the state with grassroots activity through November’s election.
As the 2010 politican season was heating up and Republicans again pay attention to pro-life Christians, former president George W. Bush spoke on April 15, 2010 to 4,000 people at an Indianapolis fundraiser for Life Centers network of CPCs.
American RTL members showed up make sure that every attendee had the opportunity to get the truth. The ARTL event flyer was placed on every car parked for the event at Conseco Fieldhouse where George Bush repeated his well crafted lie that he is pro-life to a crowd of mostly God-fearing, well-intentioned but deceived pro-lifers funding Life Centers (whose mission and people are praiseworthy but whose method of raising funds by further deceiving Christians and disguising a pro-choice politican as pro-life is worthy of rebuke).
DENVER, Feb. 23, 2010 -- American Right To Life Action, the political 527 group which claims responsibility for derailing Mitt Romney's presidential hopes in 2008 in Iowa and South Carolina, is now questioning the pro-life credentials of Concerned Women for America and their president Wendy Wright.
ProlifeProfiles.com, created by a nationwide research team working for American RTL, today is publishing their dossier on Wendy Wright and CWA. Leslie Hanks, ARTL spokesperson, was also a longtime legislative liaison for CWA in Colorado. Hanks has since resigned her CWA membership and is saddened that, "CWA has repeatedly undermined the eventual re-criminalization of abortion by their continued support for abortion regulations and pro-choice candidates."
"Many people wrongly assume that they could trust CWA to endorse pro-life candidates" said Darrell Birkey, ARTL research director. "This has led many Christians to vote for candidates who not only work against the right to life, but who, by their own policies, have approved of the killing of millions of unborn children, as documented in this CWA profile."
Wright and CWA have also repeatedly endorsed legislation that, even if Roe v. Wade were ever simply overturned, would keep abortion legal.
ARTL "hit a nerve" with its Sarah Palin profile according to Mother Jones magazine which reported that within, "24 hours after the group posted the report, Palin's political action committee, SarahPAC, scrubbed its website." ARTL also celebrates Mitt Romney's loss this weekend, after three years of consecutive wins, of the CPAC presidential straw poll. With the release of ProlifeProfiles.com/Romney, ARTL began publicly predicting that Romney would lose the majority of his Christian endorsements, and the group sees that prediction as on track with this Conservative Political Action Conference loss.
Denver, Colorado, Jan. 11 -- American Right To Life Action, the political 527 group which claims responsibility for derailing Mitt Romney's presidential hopes in 2008 in Iowa and South Carolina, is now targeting U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX). But for what?
ProlifeProfiles.com, created by a nationwide research team working for American Right To Life, today is publishing their dossier on Ron Paul and his surprisingly dismal record on abortion.
Welcome to those searching for: pro life.
You've reached American Right To Life! And just to let you know, it's no useful, or even valid, to call us pro-life. We arre abolitionists! As explained at AmericanRTL.org/regulations, we advocate for abolishing abortion, not regulating it, for ending it, not mending it.
In an age of moral compromise, Deirdre A. McQuade, assistant director of policy and communications at the pro-life secretariat of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, makes a principled public statement that there is never a "need" to intentionally kill a pre-born child.
According to the Carnegie Institute, the term "egg" has "no scientific usefulness" regarding early human development.
This riveting TV advertisement (see it also at Vimeo), produced and directed by ARTL's founding vice president Steve Curtis, demonstrates one of the great dangers of Plan B in that it even further destroys the boundary of protection that naturally surrounds women and young girls. Of course the greatest danger of the "Morning After Pill" is that it is designed to kill a child, whether son or daughter.
Four Conservative Talk Hosts Correct Author in YouTube Video
DENVER - American Right To Life releases this YouTube video, The Ann Coulter Hang-Ups and its associated website, AnnCoulterApology.com, documenting the growing rift between the right-wing pundit and popular Christian pro-family leaders. This cross-country sampling of conservative talk show hosts from Florida, Iowa, Colorado and California confronts the best-selling author on her repeated defense of those implementing homosexual marriage and tax-funded abortion.
More than just the title of her new best-seller, Guilty, may also describe Ann Coulter herself, according to American RTL president and Columbine dad Brian Rohrbough. "If she wants him elected, Ann Coulter will try to cover up
Human Life Review invited American Right To Life to write a rebuttal to a critical article they published, A Lack of Prudence from Americans United for Life. However, HLR never published our reply, so we publish it here. Maria of HLR wrote to an ARTL staffer:
I want to thank you and Mr. Rohrbough for working to get his response to Forsythe in under the deadline I'd given. And now I have an apology... the piece itself [is] based specifically on [Clarke] Forsythe's piece, which we published a while ago now-I have to think about how I would set it up, how would we refresh readers' memories about the original piece, etc...
Yours sincerely, Maria McFadden, HLR
ARTL replied, "Maria, we're praying that you will publish Brian Rohrbough's submission. Regarding refreshing readers' memories [you could] publish a link in the preface which the readers can use to review Clarke's online article. Of course, the Forsythe piece could have told readers where to find our original letter online, but they were not told, so right now the readers' opportunity to be informed of both sides of the current personhood debate is slanted. Please consider publishing both sides. Pro-life activity in Colorado has exploded onto the scene, with far more energy and effort expended in the last year [with the personhood strategy] as compared to the previous 17 years (since rescue ended)."
Since Human Life Review has now refused to publish the reply that they requested, ARTL presents:
The Legacy of Judas
National Right to Life
Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot
went to the chief priests and said,
"What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him to you?"
And they counted out to him thirty pieces of silver.
So from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.
In 1981, after president Ronald Reagan agreed he would sign federal personhood legislation for the unborn, National Right to Life and their longtime attorney James Bopp actually opposed that effort claiming they supported a states' rights approach. Move forward in time a quarter century to today. Notice that NRTL and Bopp have long opposed all state personhood efforts. Demonstrated below, NRTL has continuously promoted legislation that undermines the personhood of an innocent child. In betrayal, NRTL quietly worked to oppose Colorado's 2008 and South Dakota's 2006 abortion ban referendums. Now, like a thief in the night they are circulating a recent Bopp memo to pro-life legislators and religious organizations to oppose personhood efforts in Colorado and elsewhere. NRTL is attempting to turn pro-life officials against this legitimate effort to end abortion and enforce the God-given right to life.
A stalwart authority of the pro-life movement, Dr. Charles Rice of Notre Dame, accurately reports that not one of the U.S. Supreme Court justices, which includes those supported by NRTL, has ever affirmed personhood and the right to life for the unborn.
American RTL Elated at Historic Development
DENVER, May 29 -- "For the first time in forty years of 'legalized' child killing, pro-lifers have moved an entire state to consider the God-given right to life of the unborn," said Brian Rohrbough, president of American RTL. "We thank sponsor Kristi Burton of Colorado for Equal Rights, the 500 participating churches, and Colorado RTL for getting personhood on the November ballot."
Today the Colorado Secretary of State's office validated 103,000 signatures on human life petitions, 27,000 more than required to force a statewide vote. If passed, the Colorado constitution would define 'person' as "any human being from the moment of fertilization."
"Abortion is wrong because it's a baby; it's always wrong to intentionally kill a baby," said Rohrbough, "even when its father is a criminal, as with incest."
American RTL has launched its Colorado personhood campaign with a rebuttal to the so-called 'hard cases' of abortion for incest.
"Ending partial-birth abortion... does not save a single human life."
- Dr. James Dobson
Scores of pro-life leaders and groups (see their names below) have condemned Gonzales v. Carhart, the U.S. Supreme Court's brutally-wicked ruling upholding the morally bankrupt partial-birth abortion "ban." Tragically, other pro-life leaders and groups (see them also) still support this fraudulent ban and ruling which is a virtual manual on how to perform late-term abortions. Brace yourself for American RTL's summary of the PBA fiasco:
American RTL Analysis of the
George W. Bush Abortion Legacy
See this updated at
Contrary to popular claims, as demonstrated at Pro-life Profiles, George W. Bush has had a significant pro-abortion influence.
* By his so-called "exceptions" while in office George W. Bush directly supported killing 3.3 million unborn children
* Bush opposed South Dakota's 2006 total abortion ban; because as he told ABC News he supports killing some kids
* Bush never supported Colorado's historic 2008 personhood amendment
* In 2008, South Dakota added enough exceptions to fill a school bus, yet Bush still failed to support it
* Terri Schiavo was starved by Republican judges mostly: Reagan, Bush I and Bush II "conservative" nominees
* Bush's first presidential campaign promise was 'no litmus test;' he would nominate pro-choice judges
Once again attorney James Bopp and National Right to Life work against the protection of the preborn. James Bopp thankfully failed when he and NRTL tried to stop an amendment to the RNC Platform that advocates protecting all children from the first moment of their lives. Bopp wickedly testified: "It may very well be in our future that there is therapeutic research that can be done on human embryos, and there is nothing unethical immoral, improper or ... that disregards the sanctity of life if we are involved in therapeutic research." Here is the story from American Life League:
