Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky filed the suit against the House Enrolled Act 1337 on Thursday in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Indiana.
The Obama administration has agreed to change the phrasing in citizenship study materials to accurately reflect the constitutional right of "freedom of religion" so that new citizens don't think that liberty is restrained to just "freedom of worship."
The Department of Homeland Security's Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services notified Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., last week that his request to have the wording on a naturalization study guide to be changed from "freedom of worship" to "freedom of religion" will be granted.
Lankford, the co-chair of the Congressional Prayer Caucus and a former Baptist youth ministry leader, sent a letter to Sec. of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson last June inquiring about the use of the term "freedom of worship" in question 51 of a naturalization study guide called "Learn About the United States: Quick Civic Lessons." more >>

The frontrunner of the Republican primaries, Trump is considered a serious contender not only for the GOP nomination but, some believe, also the general election.
While many have struggled to explain his popularity, some have posited that it stems from a brand of populism. 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 >>
Democratic primary frontrunner Hillary Rodham Clinton recently stated in an interview that a fully developed baby can be aborted, even on their due date.
During a recent appearance on The View, Clinton was asked by Paula Faris if she believed that there should be any legal protections, even "just hours before delivery," offered for a baby in the womb.
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 >>
