An aspiring singer who was rejected from "American Idol" three times has shared how her faith saved her from having an abortion.
On Sunday, Kimberly Henderson, a 26-year-old single mom from South Carolina, shared her harrowing ordeal on social networking site Facebook and the post immediately went viral, garnering more than half a million likes in two days. In it, she recalls her last-minute decision not to undergo an abortion procedure after unexpectedly coming across a powerful scripture.
"Two years ago today I was sitting in an abortion clinic thinking not having Vaida was best for me," Henderson wrote with reference to her two-year-old daughter. "Well this date is forever burned in my brain. ... I think that is God's way of showing me that HIS plan is and will always be greater and bigger than anything and everything I've ever known." more >>

A previously bipartisan U.S. Senate bill meant to combat human trafficking is now being blocked by Democrats over an abortion funding provision.

As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to consider whether to overturn the marriage laws of all the states—as some activist federal judges have already done in some of the states--conservatives are naturally calling for judicial restraint. We must warn the court against another exercise of "raw judicial power" like that handed down with its infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. That cruel and unjust ruling is viewed as illegitimate by tens of millions of Americans. Young people, especially, are turning against abortion-on-demand. We see this in every pro-life march. And this public outcry is being translated into a bumper crop of pro-life legislation bubbling up in state legislatures.
The lethal Roe v. Wade ruling did serious harm to the Supreme Court's reputation. Now, the Court may once again overstep its authority. The justices are being asked not merely to redefine marriage, but to end it. That is because once marriage is no longer recognized as the union of one man and one woman, there is no legal or logical stopping point.
The radical theorists who signed on to www.beyondmarriage.org know this. That's why they want to rip marriage from its traditional place in society and replace it with a fluid and ever-changing set of relationships. These radicals say in their "Beyond Marriage" manifesto that any number of consenting adults should have legal custody of any number of children. more >>
