Protestants and Abortion

Image
 By Collin Pruett - Posted at American Reformer: On taking the political initiative The Supreme Court, like a place-kicker in football, serves a function in public life that Americans ignore until, in the most crucial of situations, its performance makes or breaks outcomes. The Courts of the 1960s and 1970s certainly scored wins for the left. In an unprecedented series of legal assaults against the ramparts of the American Constitutional tradition, the Court eradicated “ Almighty God ” from education with Engel v. Vitale , conjured up a vague right to privacy with Griswold v. Connecticut , and legalized abortion with Roe v. Wade . These headliners, combined with a broader left-wing legal and legislative blitz, ripped down the cultural scaffolding of the United States. Conservatives of the era rightly perceived that the Court would not only alter the Constitutional order, but also the trajectory of our civilization. Looking back, it’s hard to dispute that the alarm was unjustified. Birt

Pro-life efforts on ballot initiatives fail in at least 4 states

Image
 By Tom Strode - Posted at Baptist Press: NASHVILLE (BP) – Pro-life advocates appeared poised to suffer across-the-board losses on five state ballot initiatives voted on Tuesday (Nov. 8) in the first nationwide election since the reversal of the Roe v. Wade decision. The failure to gain passage of a pro-life measure in Kentucky or to defeat constitutional amendments that guarantee abortion rights in California, Michigan and Vermont dealt a troubling setback to Southern Baptists and other Americans who welcomed the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in June. In addition, the vote totals reported in Montana by midday Wednesday (Nov. 9) seemed to indicate a pro-life proposal would fall short of passage. By overturning Roe, the high court had returned regulation of abortion to the states and brought an end to a legal regime throughout the country that resulted in the deaths of an estimated 63 million-plus preborn children since 1973. Abortion-rights advocates have now prevailed in at least five s

From abortion nurse to abortion pill reversal nurse - She knows the reality of the abortion industry

By Christa Brown - Posted at Pregnancy Help News: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony - Revelation 12:11 This is the Word that Lisa lives by. Lisa has seen both sides of Big Abortion and now she is moved to save lives every single day. From a young age Lisa wanted to help women and she knew this would be through a nursing career. When she saw an advertisement for a position in a women’s clinic, she believed this was her opportunity to fulfill that dream. Sadly, this began her nine-year employment in the abortion clinics. Believing she was offering needed healthcare, Lisa assisted with surgical abortions for four years until the abortion pill became available. Lisa was then assigned to help patients starting chemical abortion and was even given a cell phone to take after-hour calls. For five more years she helped women start their abortions with a pill in the clinic and then complete their abortions at home. Continue here...

Biden pledges to make abortion rights No. 1 priority in Congress

Image
 By Tom Strode - Posted at Baptist Press: WASHINGTON (BP) – Pro-life leaders expressed their strong objection to President Biden’s promise Tuesday (Oct. 18) to make enshrining Roe v. Wade in law his legislative priority if Democrats control Congress in January. If voters elect more Democrats to the U.S. Senate and keep his party in the majority in the House of Representatives, the “first bill” he will send to Congress will be “to codify Roe v. Wade,” Biden said in a speech dedicated to the abortion issue. If Congress approves the legislation, the president said he will sign it into law in January, 50 years after the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe ruling legalized abortion nationwide. Biden’s pledge is the latest evidence of the devotion of his administration and party to protect expansive abortion rights, especially in the wake of the high court’s June opinion that overruled Roe and returned abortion regulation to the states.

South Carolina Supreme Court takes up state's abortion ban By JAMES POLLARD (Associated Press/Report for America) - Posted at WRAL News: Published October 19. 2022 COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina Supreme Court justices grilled lawyers over the extent of the right to privacy in a case Wednesday that could determine the scope of the state's abortion restrictions. The hearing marked the latest legal challenge to South Carolina's 2021 ban on abortions after cardiac activity is detected, typically around six weeks, with exceptions for pregnancies caused by rape or incest, or those that endanger the patient's life. The law — previously suspended by federal courts — took effect shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. The state's high court temporarily blocked it in August as the justices considered this case. Continue here...

 By Nancy Flanders - Posted at LiveAction: Pro-life activist Eva Edl was one of four pro-lifers charged with violating the FACE (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances) this month in relation to a March 2021 abortion facility rescue at Carafem in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. The event was aimed at reaching abortion-minded women in hopes of helping them to choose life for their babies with confidence. Edl is 87 years old and is a German survivor of a communist prisoner-of-war concentration camp during World War II. Following her escape from that camp, she began a legacy of fighting for the right to life for all human beings. “The first time I realized there were abortion clinics in our country was in 1988,” she said , according to a previous Live Action News report. “I said to my husband, ‘these are the death camps of America.’ I saw people sitting in front of abortion clinics in Atlanta, and I’ve been involved ever since.” She explains on her website that the pro-life movement must be bolde
