Mississippi Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed a bill Wednesday that will ban abortions after 20 weeks gestation starting on July 1.
"Today is an important day for protecting the unborn and the health and safety of women in Mississippi," Gov. Phil Bryant said in a statement shared with The Christian Post. "Medical research shows that an unborn child can feel pain by not later than 20 weeks gestation, and research also shows that the risk of death and complications from an abortion increases significantly as a pregnancy progresses."
WASHINGTON--A researcher with the Family Research Council considers euthanasia an "up-and-coming" issue for the pro-life movement in the United States.
Arina O. Grossu, director for the FRC's Center for Human Dignity, discussed euthanasia and the societal impact of laws that legalize physician-assisted suicide in the U.S. and Europe during a presentation titled, "The State of Euthanasia and Physician-Assisted Suicide in the U.S."
In an interview with The Christian Post at the conservative organization's headquarters Wednesday, Grossu said she believes euthanasia is a matter of life issue and one that should get more attention, akin to the abortion debate. more >>
An Ohio law that was used to stifle the political speech of a pro-life group appears in jeopardy Tuesday after the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the case of Susan B. Anthony List vs. Driehaus.
While Supreme Court decisions are difficult to predict based upon the justices questions during oral arguments, all nine justices "seemed very concerned" about the freedom of speech implications in the case, Casey Mattox, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, told The Christian Post Tuesday. Mattox was in the court audience.
In 2010, Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life group, was campaigning against Democratic Ohio Congressman Steve Driehaus because he voted for the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare." Driehaus was one of the pro-life Democrats who negotiated a compromise with President Barack Obama over abortion funding in the bill. more >>
When you are working or volunteering in the pro-life movement day in and day out, you can easily get consumed by the big picture and lose sight of what is happening every day in the nation's abortion mills. Working in the pro-life movement can sometimes make us too immune to the killing. We worry about money, politics, and metrics and we get bummed by our lack of sleep and time away from family.
But then you sit next to a late term abortionist…
Last Saturday, I was boarding a flight coming home to Virginia from Omaha, Neb. I had been in Kearney, speaking to students and local pro-life leaders and activists about creating a Culture of Life in their community and how we are all called to the pro-life movement. Oddly enough, a lot of people asked me that weekend how I keep up the schedule and the travel and where I get my passion and energy. It is the moments like what happened on my flight Saturday night, confronted by evil, that keep me going. more >>
Josie Cunningham, a pregnant 23-year-old model and mother of two has caused furor across the United Kingdom after confessing that she intends to abort her unborn child so she can become famous with a spot on popular reality show "Big Brother."
After thousands reacted in an online protest against the model's confession in the Sunday Mirror, however, sources with the show say executives at Channel 5 which produces the reality show now believe the model could be the show's Kryptonite.
"Josie is deluded if she thinks this will improve her chances of signing up, which were slim to non-existent to start with," a source told the Mirror. "How can we work with her — or pay her — if she admits having an abortion to achieve that? It would be a minefield." more >>
Billy Graham says that he is praying daily for spiritual awakening in America. Last week Rush Limbaugh expressed that the hope for America is an awakening. I think it's safe to say that most serious Christians concur.
Studying the spiritual history of America we have seen two major times of spiritual awakening that transformed the cultural landscape. In addition, we have seen times of divine intervention in our nation with the Pentecostal movement, the Catholic Charismatic movement, the Jesus movement, and other such times of supernatural visitation.
An awakening or a revival is a season when God's people who have been lulled to sleep are jolted into the reality of the urgency of the hour and the need for Holy Spirit transformation. Some recent experiences illustrate why the time is now. more >>
