A Chinese woman who is eight-months pregnant is reportedly being threatened by the Communist government that if she doesn't abort her baby, she and her husband will lose their government jobs.
Women's Rights Without Frontiers, a human rights group speaking out against coercive population control in China, has slammed the "human tragedy and appalling injustice" of the case.
The original story was reported by Shanghai online news portal Sixth Tone, which features an interview with the couple, surnamed Zhong, who both have a child from a previous marriage. The couple believed they could still have a child together under the new Two-Child policy, but the laws in the province of Guangdong turned out to be different from what they were expecting. more >>
Pro-abortion forces should be careful what they wish for, especially when it comes to Christian hospitals.
A recent poll by the Pew Research Center found that the percentage of Americans who "think" that religion plays a role in solving important social problems "has fallen significantly" in the past fifteen years.
In 2001, 75 percent of those polled said that religious institutions played such a role in our society. By 2016, the percentage had dropped to 58 percent. more >>
An incredible video showing the development of babies inside their mothers womb appeared in a report titled "The Secret Lives of Babies" on NBC's "Today Show," outlining what happens inside "Hotel Uterus" during those nine months before birth.
"Have you ever wondered how they spend their time while hanging out in Mom's belly?" reporter Savannah Guthrie, who happens to be pregnant herself, asks.

Many Christians today, such as Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, are actually "functional atheists" because they won't stand up for their biblical values in the public square, the sibling real estate team "The Benham Brothers" said this past weekend.
In an email interview that was published by the Conservative Review, Christian twin businessmen and authors Jason and David Benham discussed their second book Living Among Lions: How to Thrive Like Daniel in Today's Babylon and their thoughts on Hillary Clinton's running mate, a Catholic who personally opposes abortion but will not stand in the way of a "woman's right to choose."
News broke last week that Kaine, who has a history of supporting bans on taxpayer funding to abortion and parental consent laws, made a private agreement with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to not stand in the way of her quest to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bans taxpayer funding for abortion. more >>
As a pro-life, pro-free markets, religious liberty-promoting conservative, I've had a really bad eight years. And the Hellerstedt decision that struck down Texas' HB2 restrictions has only provided poignant and miserable punctuation to a near-decade of disappointment.
If conservatives had been told in 1980 where public policy would be in 2016, we would have declared the "culture wars" lost in toto. But the last eight years and a few Supreme Court decisions are only a symptom of a much larger issue.
The first problem is the electorate — us. It is as true now as it was to Plato that the whims of the masses incubate, insulate, install, and ultimately replace one stellar candidate with the next. Legislators, executives, and justices lead only within the confines of what they know the public will tolerate. And for those whose livelihood depends on staying within these margins (especially politicians), public whims must be constantly measured — hence the phrase "living by the polls." more >>
With the leaking of thousands of emails last weekend showing that the Democratic National Committee undermined the campaign of Bernie Sanders and displayed partiality toward Hillary Clinton, it was to be expected that this week's Democratic Convention was going to be interesting.
Although the convention concluded Thursday night in Philadelphia with Clinton accepting her party's presidential nomination and the party now seemingly beginning to unite around her and running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the anti-Hillary and Bernie Sanders-supporting crowd were not afraid to let their displeasure with the party be known.
Such tension and displeasure along with the political prestige of the convention provided for a breeding ground for crazy moments to transpire this week in Philadelphia. more >>
