Young people are assaulted on a daily basis with messages contrary to those of the moral values of Christianity — love, mercy, compassion, and respect for life. The media, social networks, music, school, and even family challenge the hearts and minds of young, Christian students every day, especially on the critical issue of protecting life in its most vulnerable stage in the mother's womb.
While science has clearly proven life begins at conception, many in the secular world have an entirely other idea of whether that little life should be given human rights. But then again, maybe the secular world can be forgiven for holding such a view. But what happens when young, Christian students aren't supported in their pro-life views from other Christian organizations, ones that supposedly follow Christ-like teachings of love and compassion and the calling to protect those who cannot speak for themselves?

After his embarrassing rejection, Jill's former fiancé popped in and out of her life. She became pregnant, and he took her to "abort their first little one." At the clinic, Jill saw the ultrasound of her tiny son.

The world is a wonderful place. Our God is so good in giving it to us. But to a large extent, we have not taken good care of it, nor of each other.
We have polluted the water, fouled the air and are dangerously changing the climate.
The breakdown of the family, the redefining of traditional marriage, global poverty, hunger, homelessness, abortion, physician assisted suicide, the arms trade, nuclear weapons, astronomical military budgets, human trafficking, corporate greed, murder and the mass murder of war are also among the critical illnesses humanity has inflicted upon itself. more >>
