In the wake of two large-scale prayer gatherings this past weekend where tens of thousands joined together with faith — AzusaNow in Los Angeles and UnitedCry DC16 in Washington, DC — questions arise about long-term impact. What changed? How is the world different?
Life stories and experiences reveal some outcomes, in time; others may never be known. One woman's journey illuminates how a massive prayer meeting propelled her into pro-life ministry, where she is now educating and helping women in one of America's most difficult areas: The Bronx in New York City.
Monique Ortega recently shared how she is studying to become a counselor — to help women and save innocent lives in the womb. "Abortion keeps women in darkness — in a lot of shame, guilt and depression with no place to go for hope," she stated, speaking from own experience suffering from multiple abortions. more >>
Indicted pro-life activist David Daleiden's legal team claims to have "clear evidence" that a Texas district attorney's office is "colluding" with Planned Parenthood.
Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, and his associate Sandra Merritt are facing felony indictments brought forth by a grand jury in Harris County, Texas, in January after the grand jury cleared a Houston abortion clinic of any criminal wrongdoing for its part in selling aborted baby body parts.
Although the grand jury convened last year with the purpose of investigating claims made in Daleiden's videos that the Planned Parenthood clinic was violating laws regulating compensation for fetal tissue, it was Daleiden and Merritt who were charged with falsifying drivers licenses in order to access Planned Parenthood, which is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Daleiden was also charged with trying to illegally buy and sell human tissue, the same crime he was trying to expose Planned Parenthood of violating. more >>
Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion provider, has said that Texas senator and Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is the "biggest threat" to the abortion industry, much more so than presidential rivals Donald Trump and John Kasich.
LifeNews shared a fundraising email for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton being sent out by Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood, who states that "every Republican candidate for president this year would be a complete disaster," and adds that "Cruz could very well be the biggest threat we face."
Laguens argues that Cruz would take things "much, much further," than the remaining GOP candidates, and stated that 73 percent of Cruz supporters are in favor of banning abortion in all or most cases. more >>
Planned Parenthood "fires" employees if abortion quotas are not met by clinics, a former Planned Parenthood clinic manager-turned pro-life activist Abby Johnson said Wednesday.
Johnson, who spent eight years at a clinic in Texas and left Planned Parenthood in 2009 after witnessing an unborn baby fighting for its life during a live ultrasound-guided abortion procedure, spoke to The Christian Post about her invitation to speak at Georgetown University on April 20, the same day Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is scheduled to speak at the Catholic school.
Johnson, who now runs an organization that encourages abortion clinic employees to leave the abortion industry called Then There Were None, was asked during the interview to refute the claim made by Planned Parenthood supporters that the abortion giant offers vital health services. more >>
A pro-life research organization released a report on the "global problem" of sex-selective abortion ahead of a United States House hearing on a bill meant to ban the practice.
The Charlotte Lozier Institute released a paper Wednesday titled "Sex-Selection Abortion: The Real War on Women," authored by Anna Higgins, J.D.
Higgins, who is part of a panel testifying before the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice on Thursday afternoon, wrote that sex-selective abortion is a "global problem." more >>
A pro-life student group at Georgetown University has invited a former Planned Parenthood clinic manager turned pro-life activist to speak on campus the very same day that Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards is scheduled to speak at the nation's oldest Catholic school.
Although abortion directly conflicts with Catholic teachings, the Georgetown student-run organization The Lecture Fund announced last month that Richards, the head of the United States' largest abortion business, is going to speak at the Washington D.C. campus next week.
Following the announcement of Richards' April 20 visit, the student group Georgetown Right to Life felt the need to balance the political conversation on campus. more >>
