RICHMOND, Va. — The Benham Brothers have said that being pro-life is a vital position to hold and one that requires more than just opposing abortion.
At a gala held Thursday in honor of a pro-life facility called the Pregnancy Resource Center, Jason and David Benham stressed the importance of the pro-life movement in national politics.
Before over 500 attendees at the Richmond Marriott, the brothers called on Christians "to be lightning bolts" instead of "lightning bugs" when it comes to witnessing, adding that "where you stand on life is where you stand on everything." more >>
What do we really mean when we use terms like "abortion access" and "reproductive justice"?
Nov. 12, the New York Times ran an op-ed from noted pregnancy center opponent Meaghan Winter titled, "The Stealth Attack on Abortion Access."
Ms. Winter, who has devoted the better part of the last three years attacking community-based nonprofits who serve women and families with life-affirming pregnancy help (see here, here, here, here and here for a primer) argues in her most recent piece that pregnancy centers represent an sneak attack on "abortion access." more >>
Three years ago today, a young woman had an abortion. Before she laid down on the cold, hard table, she named her baby Robbie, believing he was a boy.
This young woman debated her decision over and over, taking weeks to make up her mind. But once she made her choice — to complete the abortion — there was no way she could bring her Robbie back.
I talked to this young woman many times in the weeks leading up to her abortion, and I grew to love her. more >>
The U.S. Supreme Court has decided to hear arguments on the constitutionality of Texas' abortion regulations that require abortionists to obtain hospital admitting privileges and clinic owners to upgrade their facilities to meet basic health and safety standards.
On Friday the Supreme Court announced it would hear the case, Whole Woman's Health v. Cole.
In July 2013, then Republican Gov. Rick Perry signed into law House Bill 2, which banned abortions after 20 weeks gestation and required abortion clinic owners to upgrade their facilities to meet the same standards as outpatient surgical centers. Upgrades included widening doorways to enable paramedics to bring in stretchers to transport patients to the hospital, and having equipment that can properly sterilize surgical instruments to ensure the health and safety of patients. more >>
As America continues to grow more hostile toward public prayer and conservative religious viewpoints, younger generations of courageous Christians will be faced with the challenge of defying the norm of secular culture to defend prayer and biblical truth.
In his book No Fear: Real Stories of a Courageous New Generation Standing for Truth, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins highlights 11 instances when young men and women risked everything to defend biblical truth and their religious beliefs from intense societal, political, cultural and spiritual opposition.
Perkins hopes readers, especially younger Christians, will be inspired to live out their faith with the same courage displayed in the real-life stories exhibited in his book, No Fear, which was praised by leading evangelist Franklin Graham, who believes the book will "help raise up a new generation of world changers." more >>
Pink ribbons everywhere — we saw it only weeks ago when Breast Cancer Awareness Month concluded. It's an eye-catching symbol, particularly for cancer survivors.
A recent research study should also make us take notice, stating that: "Between 1970 and 2014, the probability of U.S. women contracting breast cancer has more than quadrupled."
Yet in the fight to stop cancer, certain knowledge has been missing. Cancer research organizations have made a capable effort to educate women regarding breast cancer risk factors — except for one. more >>
