A regional chapter of the nation's leading abortion provider filed a legal complaint against Indiana for the state's recently passed law banning abortions of babies with Down syndrome.

Apparently, free contraception means more to the U. S. Government than the First Freedom. Here's an update on Zubik v Burwell.
On Wednesday, March 23rd, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a group of cases known collectively as Zubik v. Burwell. The "Zubik" in the case name is David Zubik, the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh.
The case is about religious freedom, and not only for Catholics but for all Americans. The issue is the application of the HHS mandate, which requires that most employer-provided health care plans provide no-cost contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs, such as the "morning-after pill." more >>
The Romanian Pentecostal parents of five children who were seized by Norwegian child services last November due to spanking allegations have finally regained custody of their infant son following a court ruling, the family's spokesman announced.
The five children of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu were removed from the family's home in Naustdal by the Barnevernet (Norwegian child services) on Nov. 16, 2015, and were placed in three separate foster homes after one of their daughters told her school principal about how her parents spank her and her siblings as a form of discipline, which is illegal under Norwegian law.
After months of limited visitation rights with their children, the family's spokesman, Pastor Cristian Ionescu, a Chicago-based pastor and vice president of the Romanian Pentecostal Union in the United States and Canada, announced this week that a Norwegian judge has ruled that the parents are to be reunited with their yongest son, Ezekiel. more >>
California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who ordered the raid on the apartment belonging to the producer of last year's undercover Planned Parenthood videos, was accused of being "in bed" with the abortion giant as she is actively using her Senate campaign to advocate for the organization.
Pro-life activists are accusing Harris, an avid Planned Parenthood supporter, of having a severe conflict of interest after she ordered the search of Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden's apartment in Orange County on Tuesday, in which Daleiden's laptop, hard drives and yet-to-be released undercover videos were seized.
Harris, who is running for the United States Senate seat vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, is using her campaign website to encourage visitors to sign a petition calling on federal lawmakers not to strip Planned Parenthood of its over $500 million in annual federal funding, a move brought on by conservatives last year after the release of CMP's series of undercover videos. more >>

There are no special effects or bloody battle scenes featured in "God's Not Dead 2," but the movie does depict a war.
"Whether we want to admit it or not we're at war. The war of Ephesians 6," David A.R. White says in the film, where he reprises the role of the Rev. Dave from the 2014 prequel "God's Not Dead." "If we insist on denying that then we've already lost."
