THERE IS NO CHRISTIAN ARGUMENT AGAINST OVERTURNING ROE V WADE

Image
By Samuel D. James - Posted at Letter & Liturgy : The news that Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy will retire next month has immediately conjured up images of a pro-life judge’s taking his place and becoming the crucial fifth piece to strike down Roe v. Wade, the Court’s 1973 affirmation of a universal right to abortion. For pro-life activists and observers, this is a historic opportunity to challenge the bloodiest injustice in America for the past 50 years. While overturning Roe would not itself criminalize abortion, it would blow away the barrier against state-based laws and almost certainly result in at least 20 states outlawing abortion in most circumstances. All it takes is five justices to intervene on behalf of the lives of millions of unborn Americans. It is very close. It is close because Donald Trump won an astonishing election the same year that Justice Antonin Scalia astonishingly died, denying the Democratic Party an opportunity to solidify Roe via President

Abortionist Robert Rho Sentenced to Prison for Killing Woman During Botched Late-Term Abortion

Source: Operation Rescue By Cheryl Sullenger - Posted at Operation Rescue: Queens, NY — Abortionist Robert Rho, who pleaded guilty last month to Criminal Negligent Homicide for causing the death of Jaime Morales, 30, during a botched second trimester abortion, was sentenced yesterday to serve fifteen months to four years in state prison. Over Rho’s 23-year career as an abortionist, he committed an estimated 40,000 abortions, according to his attorney Jeff Lichtman. But Rho was known to cut corners on abortion procedures to save time and money. His short-cuts proved fatal for Jaime Morales when she visited Rho on July 9, 2016. Rho conducted an abortion on Morales’ 26-week baby in just one day instead of the recommended 2-3 days. Because of this, he inflicted serious internal injuries on Morales, including a perforated uterus and lacerated cervix, uterine artery, and vagina. Continue reading...

California moves closer to mandating on-campus abortion services

Image
By Grace Gottschling - Posted at Campus Reform : California moved one step closer to passing a bill that would require public university health centers across the state to provide on-campus medicated abortion services. The measure has already passed the State Senate, and after passing the Assembly Health Committee, has only one committee left to face before proceeding to the Assembly floor. Forty students from 14 universities lobbied the California Assembly Monday in support of a bill that would require public university health centers to provide abortion services. SB 320 , proposed last year by State Senator Connie Leyva, would force all public colleges in California with health centers to supply non-surgical, medication abortions to students by 2022. Abortifacient medication, used in early term, non surgical abortions, is utilized to terminate a pregnancy within the first 10 weeks of gestation. Continue reading...

High court affirms pregnancy centers' speech rights

Image
By Tom Strode - Posted at Baptist Press: WASHINGTON (BP) -- The U.S. Supreme Court delivered a key free-speech victory for pro-life pregnancy centers today (June 26) by a 5-4 vote. The high court reversed a lower court decision regarding a California law that, in part, essentially requires pregnancy care centers to promote abortion services. The justices ruled the pregnancy centers that challenged the measure would likely succeed in their assertion it violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and returned the case to a federal court for reconsideration in light of their opinion. The two-part law in question -- California's 2015 Reproductive FACT Act -- requires licensed pregnancy centers to post a notice for or otherwise inform clients in writing of the state's free or low-cost access to abortion and other family planning services. The law also mandates unlicensed centers to provide a notice they are not licensed medically and do not have a licensed medical pr

"...Children are an heritage of the LORD..." (Parts 1 & 2)

By Rev. Paul Hanna - Posted at Sermon Audio : Scripture Text: (Part 1) Psalm 139:13-16 (KJV) 13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. 14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. (Part 2) Matt 19:13-15; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 18:15-17 http://www.freepresbyterian.org/church/mount_merrion/

Indiana Republicans Approve Platform Language Affirming Right to Life From Conception

Image
By Heather Clark - Posted at Christian News Network: INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Delegates for Saturday’s GOP convention in the state of Indiana voted to approve party platform language affirming the constitutional right to life “from conception to natural death,” which “cannot be infringed.” “We believe in the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death, and that the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee that no one can ‘be deprived of life, liberty or property’ deliberately echoes the proclamation made in the Declaration of Independence that ‘all’ are ‘endowed by their Creator’ with the inalienable right to life,” the platform reads.  “Accordingly, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed.” Continue reading... 

Gov. Greg Abbott Grants Texas Teen’s Selfless Dying Wish

Image
Jeremiah Thomas - Source: Operation Save America By Lindsay Elizabeth - Posted at FaithWire: This week Texas Gov. Greg Abbott from, and Dan Fisher, who is running for governor in Oklahoma, promised a dying teen that they would fulfill his last wish. The wish? To abolish abortion in Texas. Earlier this month, Jeremiah Thomas, a 16-year-old Texan dying of an aggressive bone cancer, spoke with Gov. Abbott as part of his “legacy wish.” Instead of taking a trip to Disney World or meeting a famous celebrity, Jeremiah’s legacy wish was to tackle an issue very close to his heart: the killing of the unborn.

Mother Gives Birth to Baby Girl at Mississippi’s Last Abortion Facility

Image
Image Source: Christian News Network Posted at Christian News Network: JACKSON, Miss. — A woman went into labor and delivered a healthy baby girl at the state’s last abortion facility while waiting ultrasound tests, which are done prior to the scheduling of an abortion. The pregnant woman, whose name was not released, was at the facility for a “consultation,” according to Shannon Brewer, director of the so-called Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The mother went into labor as she awaited the ultrasound results to see how far along she was in her pregnancy. The facility is located in Mississippi’s capital city, Jackson, and is the only place in the entire state where surgical abortions are performed. It is owned by Diane Derzis, who claims that she is doing the Lord’s work. “The Bible tells us to love our neighbors with all our strength,” Derzis once told the Austin Chronicle. “Neighbors also mean struggling women who are going through times that are very complicated for them
