We need to make a greater effort than before to promote the truth.

We have great news! In case you haven't heard, the U.S. Supreme Court has just upheld our First Amendment right to freedom of conscience by ruling Obama's contraception mandate unconstitutional for religious employers.

This means that religious employers will not have to choose between creating jobs for hardworking people and violating their moral conscience by paying for anti-life drugs and devices.

Now it's time for us to double down on pro-life, but understand, we're not gambling here. This is literally a matter of life and death and it's time for us to make a maximum effort.

Let's win this now! No woman who sees her baby regrets the love she feels for her child.

This is the most pro-life ruling yet this court has made, and it's poised to make others. Now is the time for us to educate every American and to support pro-life efforts because we can finally sense the tide turning against the politically-motivated, agenda-driven, anti-life propaganda movement.

In order to turn this tide, we need to fully fund our pro-life efforts and educate the entire nation that the baby in the womb is a whole person, fully deserving of life and the protection of law.

We know though our research that a woman who sees the baby in her womb is much less likely to carry through with an abortion. Women are told their babies are just "collections of cells," but when they see a face, a tiny fist, a baby sucking on his thumb, they realize they've been fed lies and their hearts open to the possibility of a new life, filled with love.

More importantly, these women, sometimes just girls, become pro-life advocates themselves. Their own testimony is powerful witness to the Truth. That life begins at conception and no child is merely a "choice." It's time to fight back against the campaign of lies designed to seduce us into killing our own unborn children for some dark agenda.

Will you consider a gift of $25, $50, $100, or even $200?

Better yet, will you consider doubling down with us and doubling your gift?

Imagine saving two lives instead of one! Every child that's born because of this program will hopefully become a pro-life advocate themselves someday. That means if you rescue two babies, you also rescue their mothers, creating four pro-life advocates who will vote and act with a properly informed conscience.

What better way to change the world?

Now's the time to act decisively. Let's not gamble with life. Double down with us and make abortion the footnote in history that it should be.
