After spending time at the NRA convention in Indianapolis this weekend, I took to social media to post photos of myself holding various rifles. As a result it sparked some conversation from liberals about how gun violence is plaguing our nation and that organizations like the NRA are pure evil.
Well, it's time to debunk the flawed liberal logic here. Liberals constantly advocate for tighter and stricter regulations when it comes to firearms and are avid supporters of gun control. Liberals believe that if somehow gun rights are restricted gun violence will magically come to a complete halt. What liberals refuse to understand and recognize is the fact that many of these tragic events occur as a result of criminal activity not because of lack of regulation. Preventing law-abiding citizens who are educated on firearm safety and operation should not be hindered from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. In fact, law abiding citizens who do carry face criminal charges when they cross into different states since there are so many different carrying rules. Why is it that a law-abiding citizen faces scrutiny but yet they aren't the ones committing these atrocities?
If liberals are truly concerned with "senseless" death as a result of gun violence they should also be gravely concerned with the abortion industry where over 55 million innocent lives have been taken since the controversial Roe v. Wade decision. more >>
A display created by the pro-life student organization UM Respect Life at the University of Miami was vandalized last week by an unknown party.
University President Donna E. Shalala condemned the vandalism in an email, which was posted on the student group's Facebook page.
"I am sorry your display was vandalized. That behavior is unacceptable at the University of Miami," wrote Shalala. "I have asked our division of student affairs and campus police to investigate. You and your fellow students have every right to express your views …" more >>
With only 16 days left to raise over $700,000 to make a movie about Kermit Gosnell and his West Philadelphia "house of horrors" abortion clinic, filmmakers say every $1 donated counts as a vote for truth to tell the story that was largely ignored by the mainstream media.
At a cost of $2.1 million, "Gosnell" is the most funded movie ever on the crowd funding website Indiegogo, but filmmakers with Ann and Phelim Media won't be celebrating their achievement until they reach their goal.
"What we'd like to say to people is: If they feel that this was a neglected story and an important story for everyone to think about, then give $1, give $10 or $10,000 please, and make sure that this movie gets made and people find out what happened. Turn up, be there for truth. By giving $1 you're saying, 'I want this done,'" said Ann McElhinney in an interview with The Christian Post. more >>
Republicans are still months away from kicking off the presidential race – and that's a good thing for front-runners like Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who could use the extra time to hone their messaging. In four years, the Kentucky leader has won over plenty of fans for his solid record on a whole range of issues, including life. But today, it isn't his record that's concerning people – it's his rhetoric.
This week, in a sit-down with former Obama insider David Axelrod, Sen. Paul surprised a lot of conservatives with his nonchalant attitude on abortion and his role in ending it. As president, Axelrod wanted to know, how hard would his White House push to overturn Roe v. Wade? The Senator's answer: not much. With the country so evenly divided on the issue, he thinks an incremental approach is best. "I think the debate is about when life begins," said the lead sponsor of the Senate's Life at Conception Act. "Is it okay for an eight-pound baby to be aborted one week before delivery?"
Asked what his personal opinion on life at conception is, Sen. Paul said, "My personal religious belief is that life begins at the very beginning." But, he explained, America is evenly divided between "all life and no abortion, or all abortion and no life... I think the law will come down in between." Later, he said, "The country is in the middle, [and] we're not changing any of the laws until the country is persuaded otherwise." more >>
Mississippi Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed a bill Wednesday that will ban abortions after 20 weeks gestation starting on July 1.
"Today is an important day for protecting the unborn and the health and safety of women in Mississippi," Gov. Phil Bryant said in a statement shared with The Christian Post. "Medical research shows that an unborn child can feel pain by not later than 20 weeks gestation, and research also shows that the risk of death and complications from an abortion increases significantly as a pregnancy progresses."
WASHINGTON--A researcher with the Family Research Council considers euthanasia an "up-and-coming" issue for the pro-life movement in the United States.
Arina O. Grossu, director for the FRC's Center for Human Dignity, discussed euthanasia and the societal impact of laws that legalize physician-assisted suicide in the U.S. and Europe during a presentation titled, "The State of Euthanasia and Physician-Assisted Suicide in the U.S."
In an interview with The Christian Post at the conservative organization's headquarters Wednesday, Grossu said she believes euthanasia is a matter of life issue and one that should get more attention, akin to the abortion debate. more >>
