WASHINGTON — Tens of thousands of people from across the United States and abroad gathered at National Mall for the annual March for Life. The large gathering calling for the advancement of the pro-life cause in America took place as the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives gave the demonstrators a mixed message.
While the lower House of Congress passed a bill to strip abortion providers of taxpayer funds, called the No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act, they delayed a vote on a ban for abortions performed twenty weeks after fertilization, known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
Rick Santorum, former Republican member of the U.S. Senate and participant in the March for Life, told The Christian Post that he was happy with the vote to approve the No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act. more >>

Several weeks ago, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and American Renewal Project's founder David Lane invited 100,000 ministers to consider running for elected office in 2016. From becoming a city council or school board member, to becoming a county commissioner, mayor, or state legislator, pastors, Lane argues can contribute positively to their communities-- both in and out of the pulpit.
Lane hopes ministers will consider how they can influence and raise up the next generation of America's leaders. "There is great need today for wise leaders like the men of Issachar from the Old Testament," Lane says, references 1 Chron. 12:32 in the Bible.
In response to their invitation, several hundred ministers will attend American Renewal's first Public Policy event for ministers in Baton Rouge on January 23rd. The goal is to encourage and equip pastors by hearing from politicians and political operatives as well as other ministers who have run for political office. Lane hopes to prepare 1,000 ministers this year to run for office in 2016. more >>
