Matt -

Great post. This is the strategy the Pro-Life movement should rally behind, not the failed incrementalism of the past 26 years.

There is scientific proof that life begins at conception. With all our technology it is now the Leftists. the Pro-Death Democrats et al, who are the flat-earthers, the blind truth-deniers.

I posted an article today (Saturday) as a follow-up to your article . . .
