UPPER MARLBORO, Maryland — Pro-Life activists addressed five myths which support a culture of abortion at the 2014 Students for Life of America National Conference.
"The principle reason why I am passionate about the pro-life issue is because I believe there's an empty grave in the Middle East that used to be occupied by Jesus of Nazareth," Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, declared. Moore added that Jesus "is a former embryo, a former zygote, a former fetus, a former crisis pregnancy who is now the ruler of the entire universe."
Below are the top 5 myths discussed at the conference. Myth number one was not discussed at the conference because the speaker was snowed in, but he spoke to The Christian Post in an interview on Wednesday. more >>

This loving pastor's act of kindness is being used to help save the lives of babies who would otherwise be thrown in the garbage - literally. Unwanted infants abandoned in South Korea are SAVED by a loving pastor's idea to put a drop box for unwanted children near an orphanage. He believes that "God sent them here for a purpose." The drop box he is using is a part of the Jusarang Orphanage in South Korea.
He didn't think people would actually use the box and drop their baby inside but they did, and it has helped save hundreds of lives. Pastor Lee has sworn his commitment to the abandoned children, telling one mother of an abandoned child, "God, I will die for these children."
All It takes is just ONE person who really cares to help SAVE these beautiful children of God! more >>
A judge ruled that a New York City couple who are just friends can legally adopt a child, as mother and father, even though they live in different houses and have no commitment to each other besides friendship and the desire to raise a child together. One site calls them "Friends with Parental Benefits."
"I think this has lost sight of the purpose of adoption, which is not to provide children for adults who want them, but to provide homes for children that resemble as closely as possible the natural family," Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council, told The Christian Post in an interview on Thursday.
Two friends, identified as "LEL" (a man, with a domestic partner) and "KAL" (a woman) met in 2000, according to The New York Daily News. KAL decided she wanted to become a mom, and LEL offered to be her sperm donor. When she couldn't get pregnant, court papers reported that they "decided to instead adopt a child together." In 2011, they adopted "G." from Ethiopia. more >>
