Guttmacher Institute (PP's statistical arm) says 2012 is the second biggest year for passage of pro-life laws.
Time magazine says abortionists are losing the battle.
MCCL has produced a new pro-life study suitable for both high-school aged students and adults. The “At Every Stage” curriculum provides a broad and deep understanding of right-to-life issues.
The 140-page book’s 11 chapters span prenatal development, abortion, assisted suicide and euthanasia, and stem cell research and human cloning. It includes many pictures and graphics and chapter reviews to test students’ grasp of the material.
The text may be used by home-school and private-school high school instructors. It is also appropriate for church groups, home groups and individuals seeking private study. It may be used in a course or in other ways.
With this book, MCCL aims to equip students with the knowledge required to influence the world as defenders of the equal dignity and right to life of every human being, at every stage of life, especially the most vulnerable.
“At Every Stage” is available in both print and electronic (PDF) form. To order for your class, group or student, contact MCCL at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-825-6831.
Assisted suicide looms as a tangible threat to Minnesotans. Our law that prohibits assisting suicide has been upheld in two recent court cases, but even so, efforts are underway to overturn that law.
A bill to legalize assisted suicide was introduced in the 2015 legislative session. Author Sen. Chris Eaton is promoting her bill in meetings across the state.
MCCL has always opposed legalized assisted suicide. The threats of coercion and abuse, suicide contagion, misdiagnoses, carelessness and trauma among survivors make the practice of assisted suicide too dangerous. People struggling with illness and disability need support and care, not help to kill themselves.
To further understand these dangers, see our assisted suicide web page, brochure and our contagion white paper.

The motive of the man who attacked the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood outlet is not known as of this writing. What is known is that it is a heinous act involving the taking of human life and is antithetical to all that we are trying to accomplish.
MCCL opposes any form of violence related to our efforts and asks our members and supporters to avoid any activity that might result in violence.
There will be some who will accuse groups like ours of inciting such acts because we we oppose the dismemberment of unborn children and the sale of their body parts.We believe that our country will benefit from peaceful deliberation of these practices in the state legislatures and in Congress. The violence in Colorado Springs shifts the discussion away from the sale of body parts; we expect the liberal media and abortion supporters will take advantage of this disastrous event to discredit legitimate right-to-life organizations.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of those who were killed or injured as a result of this attack.
