Protecting LIFE since 1973

Quad City Right To Life is dedicated to articulating and furthering pro-life issues. Our commitment is derived from a belief that the inalienable right to life is paramount to all other rights and that without it, all other rights are in vain and at risk. We believe that every human being, from the moment of conception until natural death, has immeasurable worth.

Plan B and the Demise of Parental Rights

By Anna Higgins, Family Research Council

Parents are meant to be the fundamental guiding influence of a child’s life. They are responsible for nurturing, educating, protecting, and providing for their children. This system, established at creation by God, is the foundation of every stable, prosperous society.

However, our government has attempted to undermine parental rights and distance parents as much as possible from important decisions affecting their children. This is happening despite the fact that the Supreme Court has long upheld the highest standards of protection for the rights of parents to educate and bring up their children without interference.

The latest blow to the traditional family structure has been leveled by “reproductive rights” groups, a federal judge, and the FDA – all of which support the availability of a high dose hormonal contraceptive over the counter to young girls without a prescription.

Women Who Became Pregnant Through Sexual Assault Say, "Ask Us"

Petition Signers Say Using Their Situation to Promote Abortion Stops Women from Getting Authentic Help

Posted by Amy at Elliot Institute

Abortion and sexual assault pregnancy is a difficult subject for many people, especially since no one wants to hurt those who have already been traumatized. For many, abortion seems like a compassionate answer for women and girls who become pregnant as a result of rape or incest. But a group of women who experienced pregnancies resulting from sexual assault say that policymakers need to listen to those who've been there, instead of using this issue to promote abortion.

Organ Donation: Crossing the Line
Linking the "right to die" with organ donation has opened a terrible Pandora's Box

By Nancy Valko, RN, Voices Online 

In the US, whether we are renewing our drivers' licenses, watching the TV news or just picking up a newspaper, it's impossible to miss the campaign to persuade us to sign an organ donation card. We see story after story about grieving relatives who have been comforted by donating a loved one's organs after a tragic death, and grateful people whose lives have been changed by the "gift of life".

But in the understandable zeal to save or extend as many lives as possible through organ transplantation, are some ethical boundaries being crossed?

For example, since the early 1990s, a little-known but disturbing revolution has been occurring in organ donation. A new procedure now called "donation after cardiac death" (DCD) has been quietly added to brain death organ donation in more and more hospitals in the United States and in other countries. It was made possible by linking the so-called right to die with organ donation. Now, doctors in Belgium are using DCD criteria for determination of death to harvest organs after euthanasia.

Schizophrenic Society Outraged at Viable Babies Murdered at Philadelphia "House of Horrors" But Accepts Same-Gestational-Age Babies Being Aborted in the Darkness of the Womb

By Lee Singh, MercatorNet.com

The human mind can hold onto blatant contradictions, but in order to do so it must block out certain unpleasant truths. One such uncomfortable truth has now come knocking at the door in Philadelphia, where a "house of horrors" abortion clinic was discovered early this year. At this clinic viable babies were outright murdered after their births had been induced and they had been fully delivered. Clinic staff have testified that on hundreds of occasions, second and third trimester babies that were breathing, moving and even crying were slaughtered by having their necks slit or their spines severed.

Almost everyone agrees that killing newborn babies constitutes murder. That is also the law, which is the main reason why clinic owner Dr Kermit Gosnell may face the death penalty if convicted. In recent weeks, five of his staff have pleaded guilty to various charges including murder, and some may be sentenced to hundreds of years in prison.

And yet, late-term abortions, effectively right up to the moment of natural birth, are not illegal in Canada or in many parts of the United States. If Gosnell had chosen to act in medically acceptable ways by dismembering or killing the fetus within the womb just before removing it, he would likely be a hero in the eyes of many for providing an essential service that empowers women.

Who knows, he could have gotten the highest civilian award -- a mere three years ago we bestowed the Order of Canada upon Henry Morgentaler, a man who claims to have personally performed over 100,000 abortions.

~Quick Facts~
  • Since 1973, the heartbeats of more than 56 million unborn babies have been silenced by "safe, legal" abortion. That's more than all of the combined casualties of every major war in which the United States has been involved.
  • There are more than 140,000 second and third trimester abortions each year. (Months four through nine)
  • By 22 days after conception, the baby's heart begins to beat with the child's own blood -often a different blood type than the mother.
  • At 6 weeks, brain waves can be detected. The child's mouth and lips are present and fingers are forming.
  • At 8 weeks, every organ is in place. Bones and unique fingerprints begin to form.
  • Government researchers in Finland found the suicide rate for women having abortions was three times the national average and nearly six times what it was for women giving birth.

Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Packets available FREE!

If you don't have a durable power of attorney for health care (DPOA), or have one based upon your state's statutory form, you are not protected! If you have a Living Will, you need to replace it with a DPOA! Our DPOA is very similar to the statutory forms, but it also has protective language prohibiting any action intended to cause or hasten your death. It is written for use in Iowa and Illinois and is by far the best type of document to have. We have included educational materials in the packet which you will find helpful in discussing your wishes with your family and the person you wish to speak for you.
To obtain a packet, please stop by our resale shop or contact us by phone or e-mail.
