Here is a small list of good signs for the pro-life movement.

On December 30, 2008, the U.S. Bishops released a survey showing that most Americans support laws limiting or regulating abortion. Click here to see the survey.

A  recent USA Today/Gallup poll shows that only 35 percent of those surveyed approve of the President’s controversial move ‘allowing funding to overseas family planning groups that provide abortions.’ Fifty-eight percent disapproved of this executive order. Click here to see this poll.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has launched a national postcard campaign urging Congress to maintain widely-supported pro-life policies and to oppose the federal funding and promotion of abortion. Launched on January 24-25, the campaign is being coordinated through the USCCB’s partner organization, the National Committee for a Human Life Amendment (NCHLA).  Click here to read more.

Many  pro-life groups are fighting FOCA . One group that is leading the way is Americans United for Life (a really great group  that has a great website for information on how to stand up for the unborn.)
