"Passion of the Christ" actor Jim Caviezel has spoken out against abortion in a recent speech, calling it a "great sin" in America. He also reached out with a message of forgiveness to those who have gone through with the practice.
"Many people are a part of this great sin in this country. These are all God's children and he brings them home. Now He wants to bring you home. Do you think your friend has more grace than God? Does your friend have more love than the Creator? It can never be. God forgives you and now He needs you to begin, to accept forgiveness," the actor told the congregation at Rock Church in San Diego, WND.com reported earlier this week.
Caviezel, who currently stars in hit TV show "Person of Interest," recalled his experiences playing the role of Jesus Christ in Mel Gibson's 2004 epic "The Passion of the Christ," which remains the most successful Christian movie ever made. more >>

The Thai surrogate mother who carried twins for an Australian couple claims she refused their alleged requests for a late-term abortion.
Pattaramon Chanbua made headlines recently when she accused the couple of abandoning their critically-ill seven-month-old son Gammy and taking his healthy twin sister when they were born last year.
In a new interview the 21-year-old food vendor in Thailand has claimed David and Wendy Farnell insisted that she abort the twins while she was seven months pregnant because of Gammy's health woes. Baby Gammy has a congenital heart condition and a lung infection in addition to Down syndrome. more >>
A federal judge argued that a woman's right to have an abortion deserves the same protection as her right to bear arms in a ruling Monday that a 2013 Alabama law requiring doctors at abortion clinics to have admitting privileges at local hospitals is unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson concluded, in his 172-page decision handed down Monday, that the requirement that abortion doctors must have admitting privileges at hospitals in the same metropolitan area that they conduct abortions places an undue burden on women's right to abortion. To prove his point however he paralleled abortion rights with gun ownership rights.
"The constitutional rights recognized by the Supreme Court are often viewed as more, or less, important in our minds based on our subjective beliefs, which may be the result of religion, personal philosophy, traditions, or experiences. This is simply an aspect of human nature, but it is an aspect this court must resist," Thompson began in the conclusion portion of the decision. more >>
The Ohio Department of Health has been cracking down on apparent abuses and violations at facilities that provide abortions.
Two clinics, Northeast Ohio Women's Center in Cuyahoga Falls and Capital Care Network of Toledo, may lose their healthcare facility licenses. The ODH has proposed that the two clinics lose their licenses and the order, if uncontested, will take effect on Aug. 12.
Last week, a panel sitting for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit struck down – by a 2 to 1 margin − a 2012 Mississippi law as an undue burden on a woman's right to abortion. What kind of burden, you might ask, would the majority deem sufficiently undue so as to overturn a state law?
The answer might surprise you: Requiring physicians who perform abortions to secure hospital admitting privileges –just like physicians with other outpatient surgeries.
Considered standard medical practice for essentially any type of office-based procedure, doctors maintain hospital admitting privileges to assure the health and safety of patients. The treating physician should have unrestrained and immediate access to a nearby hospital in case of a complication. more >>
