David Daleiden, head of the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, alleges that StemExpress — a biotechnology company that sells aborted baby organs for tens of thousands of dollars — is trying to use the courts to block the release of future undercover videos because they might reveal "evidence of born alive infants."
"In a meeting with their top leadership they [StemExpress] admitted they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants," Daleiden asserted on CNN Friday.
California-based StemExpress is "very scared," he said, about seeing the next undercover videos released to the public because they might reveal illegal partial-birth abortions are being carried out to obtain intact tissue and organs for research. more >>
US Homeland Security chief recently revealed that the government tactically made the decision to call Islamist terror attacks "violent extremism," avoiding the term "Islamic" or similar wording that would point to religious motivations in an effort to build bridges with the Muslim community.

NEW YORK -– Grammy-nominated Christian rapper Flame makes a statement on his new album Forward suggesting the death of cultural Christianity will help the Gospel, and during an appearance on CP Voice he elaborated on that message.
Forward is Flame's eighth studio album and the record addresses various topics including Christianity in America, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana, and what he believes to be a shift in culture that will advance the message of Jesus.
"We've assumed for so long that America is a Christian nation. We assume it's a pseudo kingdom of heaven and God is doing something extra special in America, as if this is a theocracy where God rules like Ancient Israel. And I think it's helpful for people to know the reality of our current state. Yes, the framers of the Constitution were informed by some Christian ideas and that was very helpful. But when people can realize God's true heart for repentance and reconciliation, versus being a good person, it helps them to rightly access where they are in their lives," said Flame to CP Voice. more >>
