    I have been thinking about Tim Farron's assertion that he feels it 'impossible' to be leader of the Liberal Democrats while living as a faithful Christian. So he has stopped doing that (being leader of the Lib Dems, I mean). I'm not all that sympathetic to Mr. Farron.... People who profess Christian belief must expect to be reviled a bit, an even take it as a compliment. As Christ himself said (Matthew 5, 11-12) 'Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice and...

    In typical Hollywood fashion, a pro-choice actress has claimed her views on abortion and Christianity go hand in hand — suggesting the pro-life crowd has “stolen” the Christian identity. Actress Amy Brenneman, star of the HBO show “The Leftovers,” describes her church’s philosophy on the “moral agency of women” as a mother’s right to keep or kill her baby — or to “decide what’s right for her fetus,” in Brenneman’s words. "In my church, we are prayerfully pro-choice, which means that we believe in the moral agency of women," Brenneman, 52, said in a video created by the "Lives of...

    In a huge victory, a California court today dismissed almost all of the criminal charges abortion activists filed against the pro-life advocates who recorded undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts from aborted babies. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed 15 felony charges against both David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt. Becerra is a longtime abortion advocate with financial connections to the Planned Parenthood abortion company that the two pro-life Advocates exposed in the videos for selling body parts such as fetal brains and livers. At the time, pro-life advocates said Becerra’s 15 felony charges were bogus charges meant...

    The New York attorney general says Kenneth Griepp was 15 feet from an abortion clinic. He went to federal court this week to try to push him an extra foot away. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman also admitted to having investigators scour social media and track license plates of pro-life protesters, helping to build his case against 14 protesters he said were getting too close to the Choices Women’s Medical Center, a women’s health and abortion clinic located in Jamaica, Queens, on a weekly basis since 2012. Mr. Schneiderman’s lawsuit filed Tuesday says the protesters, who are members of different churches...

    Last month, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam signed a pro-life bill to ban late-term abortions in Tennessee. Today he and pro-life leaders held a ceremonial bill signing at Legislative Plaza. The Tennessee Infants Protection Act (SB 1180 / HB 1189) establishes a presumption of fetal viability beginning at 24 weeks gestation and prohibits abortion except in medical emergencies once viability has been confirmed. The new legislation also requires a medical assessment for fetal viability before an abortion may be performed on unborn children at least 20 weeks old. Tennessee Right to Life celebrates the bill’s passage. “Tennessee is a pro-life state...

    The abortion business Planned Parenthood managed to find a few clergy to help promote its pro-abortion agenda in a new video. Planned Parenthood is desperate for support after Americans elected a large group of pro-life leaders to the United States Congress last fall. Efforts to cut off millions of taxpayer funds to the abortion chain are under way. In an appeal to religious individuals, Planned Parenthood produced a new video this week where four pro-abortion clergy members – two Baptist pastors, a Unitarian Universalist pastor and a Jewish rabbi — urged people to support the abortion business, according to the...

    Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the head of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life, has doubled down in defending a new member appointed by Pope Francis to the Academy who has argued that abortion should be legal until “18 weeks after conception.” Paglia said that while the appointee’s pro-abortion stance is “not my personal position, and much less the Academy,” he nevertheless defended the recent selection of pro-abortion University of Oxford Professor Nigel Biggar.

    “7-month pregnant gang rape survivor denied a late-term abortion by the Gujurat high court in India.” With those kinds of news stories, we regularly see organizations like Amnesty International and Planned Parenthood International utilizing such stories to demand the legalization of abortion through all nine of months of pregnancy – not only for rape, but for any reason. Rape is just the key to open wide the abortion door. But what if you learned the rest of the story? What if there is more to these stories than is initially being reported? This particular pregnant rape survivor’s treatment is amongst...

    Three pro-life, faith-based nonprofit clinics in California are suing the state’s attorney general, Xavier Becerra, for infringing on their First Amendment rights. These clinics — LivingWell Medical Clinic, Inc.; Pregnancy Care Center of the North Coast, Inc.; and Confidence Pregnancy Center, Inc. — offer free unplanned-pregnancy-related services to hundreds of women each year. It would be against their deeply held beliefs to advocate abortion. But California law requires them to. Since 2015, the California Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency (FACT) Act has required certain pregnancy clinics to notify their patients that the state offers free and low-cost abortions...

    Actress Amy Brenneman thinks the right has committed an injustice. They’ve paired pro-life with the term Christian. In a video done for the Lives of Women series, the star of “The Leftovers”, while being filmed in a church, started her PSA by saying, “I absolutely think the term ‘Christian’ has been stolen in 2017 in America by the ‘Christian Right.’” She then proceeded to say that while she has been extremely open about having an abortion when she was 21, it was time to re-state that, because of the rise of social media. Brenneman also expressed her anger with the...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - It's the only abortion clinic left in the state, and protests there are getting more aggressive. On Wednesday, Metro Council heard discussions about a "safety zone" outside the EMW Clinic in downtown Louisville. Supporters are fighting for a 20-foot buffer zone, something the ACLU recommends that would be 8-feet wide and stretch from the clinic's front door to the street. Anti-abortion emotions boiled over at Metro Hall at the end of a Council Public Safety Committee meeting. "Respect the unborn children," shouted local pastor Joseph Spurgeon. "Respect our free speech. We will not obey buffer zone...

A group called NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice also signed the letter. “We urge you to oppose any repeal of the Affordable Care Act, attempts to change Medicaid’s open-ended funding guarantee into a block grant or per capita caps, and any attempts to defund Planned Parenthood,”...
