Pro-lifers are concerned about the commitment of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, to ending abortion.
In a "Fox News Sunday" interview, Walker said he was pro-life but sounded dipassionate about ending abortion if he were elected president.
During his reelection campaign, host Chris Wallace noted, Walker ran an ad calling abortion an "agonizing choice" and said he supported legislation that "leaves the final decision to a woman and her doctor." more >>
Actress Shari Rigby who starred in the hit film "October Baby" is opening up about her own life story in the new book, Beautifully Flawed, which will be available in stores on Monday.
Rigby, who's also a motivational speaker, reveals her tumultuous journey from teen marriage, pregnancy, adultery and drug use to her Christian faith. The author also delves into her career in Hollywood with Beautifully Flawed: Finding Your Radiance in the Imperfections of Your Life, including the powerful role as the mother of an abortion survivor in 2011's "October Baby." The part brought Rigby full circle since the actress herself had an abortion at a young age, proving that God transforms our mistakes into new purpose and beauty.
"This book is about the journey that we go on and how the Lord absolutely uses everything to his glory," Rigby told The Christian Post. So many times we look at our lives and we see things that are flawed, we are ashamed and can't speak about them. I was transparent about my story, from little girl on all the way up through speaking career that last few years. more >>
A Baptist preacher's wife in Alabama who works at a local abortion clinic hit back at her critics Monday, declaring that those who criticize women who work at abortion facilities should first address the sins in their own lives before criticizing what women do with their own bodies.
"I feel that we have all sinned. None of us are perfect. No sin is greater than any sin. I don't know why, other than that's the only decision [abortion] that a woman could make. That's her right to make that decision because that's her body," Callie Chatman, a certified medical technician who works at Reproductive Health Services, told The Christian Post in an interview Monday. Callie's husband is Louis Chatman, pastor of New Elam Baptist Church in Montgomery.
A video posted to YouTube last Thursday by David Day Sr., a Mission Service Corps missionary with the North American Mission Board reportedly shows pastor Chatman "dropping off his wife" at the facility. more >>
National Harbor, Md. — Members of a panel on anti-abortion activism at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday afternoon believe that the current trend of political successes for the pro-life movement may influence the Democrat Party.
"Abortion-centered feminism is dead. I really believe that's true. Now it certainly could crawl back in the crevices of new elections and new conversations and new legislative battles," said Marjorie Dannenfelser of Susan B. Anthony List.
"If we stay on the track we're on, we will continue into the next election against Hillary Clinton potentially, with a very strong, emboldened pro-life, pro-woman course, only not just Republicans but in the Hispanic community and among Democrats," she predicted. more >>
1. "Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you." – President Barack Obama
Attempting to call down God's support on an organization that routinely destroys and discards human beings is not exactly a wise move. Especially not when you're referring to the God Who said in Deuteronomy 30:19:
This day…I have set before you life and death…Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. more >>
The British Parliament has voted 292 to 201 against an amendment that would have explicitly banned abortions based on the gender of the unborn child. U.K. pro-life group LIFE has said that it's "dismayed" at the results, and argued that the Parliament has failed to protect unborn girls, who are most often the victims of gender-selective abortions.
When asked by The Christian Post for comment on Tuesday, LIFE shared the following statement by spokeswoman Michaela Aston:
"Parliament yesterday failed in its duty to ensure women are not discriminated against at all stages of their lives. Instead, it caved in to the intense lobbying efforts of the abortion industry and its advocates, against the outlawing of sex selection abortion." more >>
