Planned Parenthood’s Rejection of Title X Funds Shows a Crucial Connection Between Birth Control and Abortion

Image
Pregnancy Help News By Peggy Hartshorn, Ph.D. - Posted at Pregnancy Help News: Despite their public statements to the contrary, Planned Parenthood did not turn down $60M in Title X federal funds because a new “gag rule” is against their freedom of speech (the new federal “Protect Life Rule” prohibits Title X recipients from referring for abortion). Nor did Planned Parenthood turn down Title X because they are so committed to “women’s reproductive health” — however skewed it is to think that an abortion referral could ever be construed as “health care.” Nor did Planned Parenthood turn down the money because it would be too onerous to separate their abortion services from their Title X funded services in geographical location and financial record keeping as the new federal rule requires (much smaller faith-based groups that receive federal dollars comply willingly with similar requirements that separate their tax-funded services from their faith-based ones). Planned Parenthood’

Pastor Jarrid Wilson Launches #GreatJoys Movement to Counter Alyssa Milano’s Celebration of Her Abortions

Faithwire.com By Tré Goins-Phillips - Posted at Faithwire: A pastor based in Southern California is offering a different perspective after actor and activist Alyssa Milano recently celebrated her past abortions, claiming her life would be “lacking all its great joys” if she hadn’t terminated two of her pregnancies when she was in her early 20s. Jarrid Wilson, pastor at Harvest Christian Fellowship and founder of the non-profit Anthem of Hope , posted a tweet Wednesday, responding to Milano. In it, he asked people to post pictures of their own children along with the hashtag #greatjoys because, in reality, children are the presence — not absence — of joy. Continue reading...

Baptist leader urges Tennessee legislators to stand for life

Image
By Lonnie Wilkey - Posted at Baptist Press: NASHVILLE (BP) -- When New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law one of the nation's most comprehensive abortion laws earlier this year, he "woke a sleeping giant," declared Randy C. Davis, president and executive director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board. Davis was one of five pro-life proponents who appealed to a nine-member Tennessee Senate Judiciary Summer Study Committee Monday (Aug. 12) to join thousands of Tennessee Baptists and other evangelical Christians in standing for life in the Volunteer State. Longtime observers of the Tennessee Baptist Convention believe it may be the first time that a representative of the convention has addressed Tennessee senators on a major legislative issue. The Senate committee heard testimony from both pro-life and abortion advocates concerning the Tennessee Heartbeat Bill. Davis observed that the bill before the Senate committee is much stronger than a similar bill passed

Conceived in Rape: A Life Turned to Beauty and Joy

Pregnancy Help News By Brittany Summers - Posted at Pregnancy Help News: Babies conceived in rape are no less human and no less valuable than the women who carry them. It is easy for those who have not experienced this horrific ordeal to offer conjecture and opinion about what the fate of the baby should be—which is usually abortion. Let’s introduce 18-year-old Amy*, a college freshman experiencing a new school, new friends, and the excitement of her entire world ahead of her. As a pre-law student, she is nervous but excited to pursue her dreams. During Christmas break, Amy’s life would change forever. Amy was maliciously attacked and raped by two men. She was never able to identify them. She will never be able to press charges or pursue justice for herself. She didn’t know their faces, their names, or any possible mutual friends. Amy told her family about how she was raped and ultimately decided to go back to school to continue pursuing her dreams. Soon after getting back into
