Snowflake Adoption

 Posted at Christian News: No one fully loves this idea described by the PR term of “snowflake adoption,” but this IVF procedure has been extolled by some as a godly option to deal with leftover frozen embryos that the original parents do not want. This initially sounds loving and very pro-life, but it has some deeper theological problems, not about the lives themselves, which are not to be denied or devalued, but around the sanctity of the womb, the marital act, and the divine union of husband and wife. The Lord gave His word “be fruitful and multiply” and He gave us one way to achieve that inbuilt purpose for marriage, and by extension how He expands humanity. We do not have to preach people to the marital act or give technical courses—and those who can avoid it without temptation need not be married at all. Our very nature and bodies impel to it. It is intrinsic to marriage, whereas IVF, in all its forms, is not so simple and easy to confine to God’s marriage. There would be no left

1 in 6 churchgoers have had, paid for or encouraged an abortion, survey finds

By Ryan Foley - Posted at The Christian Post: Published August 29, 2023 One out of every six regular churchgoers in the United States has had, paid for or encouraged an abortion, while one-fifth doesn't believe the Bible identifies when life begins, a new study suggests. The Family Research Council's Center for Biblical Worldview released the " Survey on Adult Churchgoers on Social Issues and Worldview " last week. Based on 1,009 interviews of American adults who attend church services at least once a month, the study was conducted in June 2023 by Center for Biblical Worldview and prominent Evangelical pollster George Barna. The survey examined respondents' views on abortion and found that 16% of respondents "admitted to having ever paid for, encouraged, or chosen to have an abortion." While nearly two-thirds (65%) of those surveyed stated that the Bible identifies when human life begins, 21% disagreed, while 14% did not know. Continue here.

Breaking News: 'Pro-life rescuers immediately incarcerated following jury’s guilty verdict in DC FACE Act trial'

Just ahead of the judge’s decision, defendant Heather Idoni told LifeSiteNews that the determination of whether or not she and other defendants would be immediately incarcerated was all up 'to the Lord and His ministry.' WASHINGTON, D.C. ( LifeSiteNews ) — A jury on Tuesday found five pro-life activists guilty of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act and conspiracy against rights. They were immediately incarcerated following the verdict and could face more than a decade in prison for their efforts to prevent women from killing their preborn babies. In a statement to LifeSiteNews at the courthouse on Tuesday, defendant William Goodman urged his supporters “to forgive the jury, the judge, and all those who witnessed against us, and to pray that they would see how God loves the gift of every human life.” All the defendants were led away and Goodman was handcuffed after the judge determined that the rescuers must be immediately detained pending sentencing

The Secret Treachery of the Pro-life Establishment

By Ben Zeisloft - Posted at American Reformer: The Pro-Life Industry Continues to Block Abolitionist Victories For more than fifty years, most American Christians have outsourced the battle to end abortion to the pro-life movement, a loose alliance of activists and institutions in general agreement that abortion ought to be curtailed through the legislative and judicial processes. The institutions that charter the political strategy for this alliance, which are dominated by Roman Catholics but have some significant Protestant figureheads, rely on evangelical votes and donations to place their ostensible champions in elected office. In exchange for their ballots and their dollars, these well-meaning evangelicals in turn expect pro-life lobbyists to pass legislation that bans abortion and protects preborn babies from murder. Few of these evangelicals know, however, that the institutional pro-life movement has long been politically corrupted and ideologically compromised. This week at T

Post-Christian Sex

 By Dr. R. Scott Clark - Posted at The Heidelblog: Published July 1, 2022 There is a remarkable article on which features a series of comments from young people who belong to “Generation Z.” Sometimes described as “Zoomers,” GenZ are those who were born after 1996. The article purports to reflect the fears of Generation Z about sex after the end of Roe v. Wade. The Strange New (To Zoomers) Post-Roe World Like many writing on this question, neither the author of the article nor those interviewed seemed to understand the legal ramifications of the end of the Roe/Doe legal regime imposed on the country for nearly 50 years in 1973. The Roe, Doe, and Casey decisions by the Supreme Court stole the debate over the legal status of abortion and the legal status of unborn humans from the state and federal legislative bodies. It pre-empted the debate through an untenable and even bizarre interpretation of the Constitution. Legal scholars and Supreme Court justices (e.g., Ruth Bader-G

Pastoral Q & A: The Morning After Pill

 By Wes Bredenhof Can a Christian woman use the “Morning After Pill” as emergency contraception? Let’s first be clear what we’re talking about. The “Morning After Pill” is often marketed under the name “Plan B,” though there are other drugs and brands. This is not RU-486 (mifepristone), a drug that causes abortion typically later in pregnancy. The MAP is regarded as a form of emergency contraception — it’s for when other ways of preventing a pregnancy have either failed or been neglected. The question is whether this is something Christian women can take advantage of. To answer that, let’s imagine two scenarios. Scenario 1 A young unmarried woman has been having sex with her boyfriend. On one occasion, they forget to use their normal method of contraception. She’s concerned that she may get pregnant, so she goes to the pharmacy for “Plan B.” She takes the tablets and does not become pregnant. Scenario 2 A woman in her 30s (with four children already) believes it would be unwis

How pro-life groups shut down a dangerous abortion facility

By Nancy Flanders - Posted at Live Action: Published August 20, 2023 Earlier this year, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) issued a final order revoking the license of the American Family Planning abortion business in Pensacola, Florida. The facility faced a fine of $343,200 and the state determined that the business posed an immediate threat to the health, safety, or welfare of its patients. The closure came after three women had to be hospitalized within nine months and American Family Planning failed to report any of the injuries as required by law. But the shuttering of the notorious facility wouldn’t have happened without the dedication of three pro-life organizations working together. In a video regarding the pro-life victory, members of the three pro-life organizations — Sidewalk Advocates for Life, Reprotection, and Emerald Coast Coalition for Life — explained how the hard work of pro-lifers paid off and protected women and children from the dangerous abortion b

Christian wisdom from a silent hero

God continues to save preborn babies despite the opposition Barros has endured. Image: Ligonier Ministries. By Ben Zeisloft - Posted at The Sentinel: Very few Americans have ever heard the name John Barros, even though he is beyond the shadow of a doubt one of the greatest Christian heroes of our generation. Barros has spent the past twenty years ministering outside of an abortion clinic in Florida, preaching the gospel and offering women various forms of assistance should they choose life for their preborn children. God has blessed his ministry with more than 3,000 saved babies: he consistently visits with many of the children, some of whom have now reached adulthood, and he continues to assist their families through his church and local crisis pregnancy centers. When he is called a hero by the many pastors, lawmakers, and sidewalk ministers who have been influenced by his work to engage the issue of abortion, he instantly gives glory to God. “I could never take credit for one of the

Court says FDA must restore abortion pill safety measures, pending Supreme Court review

By Carole Novielli - Posted at Live Action: Published August 16, 2023 The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled on Wednesday to allow the abortion pill mifepristone to remain “available to the public under the conditions for use that existed in 2016″ while it vacates more recent expansions of the drug’s approved use under the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) safety requirements (REMS). Those expansions removed the in-person dispensing of the abortion pill and enabled the drug to be shipped by mail — and also expanded the use of the pill from seven (7) weeks to 10 weeks. In addition, the Court’s abortion pill ruling will allow the “generic version of mifepristone,” which was approved in 2019, to “be available under the same conditions as Mifeprex.” However, as Bloomberg states, “The decision… won’t have an immediate impact on access to the medication, mifepristone. The pill remains available under an April order from the US Supreme Court that will stay in effect unt

Abortion Trafficking: Big Abortion’s predatory luring of teens out-of-state and away from parents

By Carole Novielli - Posted at Saynsumthn's Blog : Abortion organizations, businesses, and funding groups are taking part in what has been dubbed “abortion trafficking” by openly enticing minor children to cross state lines to obtain an abortion. While “abortion trafficking” may not rise to the level of sex trafficking in the minds of some, the idea of a child being enticed away from the protection of their family by a stranger for any reason is disturbing. Abortion is a business which profits from increasing clients — but many feel that perfect strangers arranging for children to travel across state lines without parental knowledge is reminiscent of child sexual predators utilizing social media and other nefarious tools and promises to take advantage of innocent teens. In 2022, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) received 19,000 reports of possible child sex trafficking alone. Continue here.

Sex trafficking victim: Pro-life center ‘saved my life’

 Posted at Pregnancy Help News: A woman who was a victim of sex trafficking for nearly 30 years said that a New Hampshire pregnancy resource center (PRC) saved her life. In an op-ed for The Hill , Jean Marie Davis recounted her personal experience as a newly pregnant 29-year-old woman who had been trafficked since the age of two. I suffered serial abuse, rape and even murder attempts by various pimps. I was heavily addicted to hard drugs such as crystal meth and cocaine. I eventually reached a point where I intentionally sought to end my life by overdosing. Even though I was losing weight from the drugs, my belly kept growing, and I soon discovered the pregnancy that would ultimately save my life. For the sake of her unborn child, Davis boldly escaped. “Pregnant, terrified and with nowhere to go, I literally ran away from the only life I had ever known.” It was then that she came across the PRC which she credits with setting her free.

This time, abortionist Erin King made the 911 call. She requested emergency transport for a 35-year-old woman hemorrhaging after a second-trimester dilation and evacuation abortion. Consistent with requests made by other employees of HCW, she asked for transport to Barnes-Jewish Hospital, a Level One Trauma Center in St. Louis, Missouri. King stated an agreement was in place with a “family planning team” to accept the transfer. Erin King’s husband, David Eisenberg, also an abortionist , has privileges at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. King was careful not to use the word “hemorrhage

Trafficking survivor says her trafficker ‘took all his girls to Planned Parenthood’

 By Nancy Flanders - Posted at LiveAction: "Despite the frequency of their visits, the survivors didn’t receive actual help from Planned Parenthood to escape their traffickers." According to at least three studies , Planned Parenthood is one of the most common clinical settings to which sex traffickers bring their victims. Traffickers take the women and girls they abuse to Planned Parenthood because, according to the survivors, Planned Parenthood does not ask questions. Research published in 2014 by the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy found that survivors of human trafficking have “had significant contact with clinical treatment facilities, most commonly Planned Parenthood clinics.” Another study from 2017, “Identifying Health Experiences of Domestically Sex-Trafficked Women in the USA: A Qualitative Study in Rikers Island Jail,” found that “[e]mergency departments, Planned Parenthoods, and jails were common care sites.” And “Sex Trafficking Victims at Their Jun
