While major Democratic voices such as President Barack Obama and 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton have been celebrating Planned Parenthood's 100th year anniversary, evangelical leaders such as Russell Moore have warned that America still has a long way to go to fight for human dignity.
"For a century, Planned Parenthood has been a force for the culture of death, beginning with its start as a racist, social Darwinist institution," Moore, who is the president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, told Baptist Press. "It has been exposed even further in recent years as a trafficker of human bodies for financial gain.
"Though the pro-life movement has made some remarkable gains, this landmark for the abortion lobby's biggest institution is a reminder of how far we still have to go for human dignity," he added. more >>
