Among the topics in this episode, Corinn and her guests give a historical overview of the Connecticut Pro-Life movement and discuss how, prior to Roe vs. Wade, this was the strongest pro-life state in the nation. In 1829, it was the first state in the country to pass a pro-life law protecting the "unborn child" (so stated in the law) from the point of quickening (approximately half-way through the pregnancy) to birth. This law was implemented in all states and augmented by the AMA (American Medical Association) in the 1850s, when scientific evidence demonstrated that the unborn child was a human being from the moment of conception.

Corinn also notes that as various states today have been successfully passing traditional marriage legislation, a similar movement was afield in the early 1970s when states were passing a wave of abortion bans, all of which were ultimately struck down by Roe vs. Wade. (May God spare us from repeating such a disaster.)

The panel also discusses the sexualizing of our third and fourth-grade children with a scandalous book written by a Planned Parenthood executive entitled "It's Perfectly Normal". [Note: If your child is in public schooling, be aware of what is being taught to them!!! Please get involved with their education!]

Corinn and her guests also put out a call to pro-lifers to join their local town committees, which is were politics and educational decision-making begins.

Ave Maria!
