Pro-life activists returning to the Midwest in dozens of buses after taking part in the March for Life in Washington, D.C., were stranded on the Pennsylvania Turnpike late Saturday due to an accident followed by a massive dumping of snow by Storm Jonas, which has claimed at least 18 lives. A stranded Catholic group celebrated mass on an altar they made with snow.
Hundreds of demonstrators found themselves stuck on the busy Interstate 76 Saturday after braving through the threat of Jonas to march down to the U.S. Supreme Court Building Friday to demand an end to abortion.
Among those stranded was a group of more than 300 students and chaperons from Omaha, Nebraska, reported KETV.com, which said almost all the buses had food, water and gas, and the people in high spirits. more >>
Award-winning Christian singer Matthew West combats abortion with a new song meant to be a gentle encouragement to help save unborn babies.
In a chilling song released by West called, "Untold," he sings from the perspective of an unborn child. The song was inspired by a benefit concert in which he performed for a Crisis Pregnancy Center.
Since then, West has created a movement with his song and video, meant to serve as catalysts for others to be a voice for the voiceless. more >>
Citing the Church's moral complicity in the abortion industry due to a significant number of churchgoing women who have abortions, Care Net President and CEO Roland C. Warren called for the church to address its own abortion problem before tackling it in secular culture.
"We need to overturn Roe V. Wade in our own hearts and in our own churches, in our own pews. This is the log in our eye versus the speck in the culture's eye. If we want to have an impact in the culture, we need to work on our house first because that would give the message. How many sermons have you heard about that? I've never heard one," Warren said at the Evangelicals for Life conference in Washington D.C., Friday.
Care Net, an Evangelical Christian crisis pregnancy center, is America's largest network of pregnancy centers. Warren said the organization conducted surveys that show that nearly four out of every 10 women were attending church at the time they had their first abortions. more >>
WASHINGTON — Thousands of devoted pro-lifers braved through the threat of Winter Storm Jonas and marched down to the United States Supreme Court Building Friday to demand an end to abortion by participating in the 2016 March for Life on the 43rd anniversary of the court's decision in Roe v. Wade.
The march, which was preceded by a rally featuring a number of prominent pro-life speakers including Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, began in front of the Washington Monument right as the snow began to fall. But, the early arrival of the winter storm could not deter the participants from continuing their 2-mile trek down Constitution Avenue.
"The world may think that we are a little bit crazy to be here on a day like today but those of us standing here know that there is no sacrifice too great to fight the human rights abuse of abortion," March for Life President Jeanne Mancini told participants before the march. more >>
2016 presidential candidate Carly Fiorina denied the accusation that she "ambushed" a group of preschoolers who attended a pro-life rally at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden on Wednesday.
Fiorina's political camp defended itself after one parent accused Fiorina of forcing a group of preschoolers to sit on stage with her as she spoke during the Iowa Right to Life Presidential Forum being held at the botanical garden. The preschoolers were visiting the gardens on a class field trip.
"In Des Moines yesterday, a group of preschoolers along with their parents and teachers followed Carly right into the event she was speaking at for Iowa Right to Life. Earlier, she'd run into the kids in the Botanical Gardens and watched the Koi with them for a while," Sarah Isgur Flores, a spokeswoman for the Fiorina campaign, told LifeNews in a statement. "I guess the kids must have thought she was pretty neat because then their teachers and parents and the kids all followed Carly into the event complete with Carly stickers." more >>
Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina declared that pro-choice Feminists are attempting to shut down debate over the issue of abortion.
At the annual March for Life in Washington, DC on Friday, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO told those gathered outdoors that "feminism now shuts down conversation on college campuses and the media."
"If you are a pro-life man or heaven-forbid a conservative woman who doesn't believe the litanies of the left then you are a waging a 'war on women' or you a threat to women's health," said Fiorina. more >>
