The Eight-Member U.S. Supreme Court struck down two key parts of Texas' controversial abortion facility regulation legislation, commonly known as HB 2.
In a 5-3 decision, the highest court in the land concluded that the Texas' law's demand that abortion providers have hospital admitting privileges and that clinics be regulated as surgical centers violated the U.S. Constitution.
Justice Stephen Breyer authored the majority opinion, being joined by Justices Anthony Kennedy, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented. more >>

In part two of his sermon series "Bad Advice," Pastor Craig Groeschel of Life.Church names the addictions that are holding people hostage in life and shares how they can be defeated.
Everyone is susceptible to addiction, especially when something other than Jesus takes on a god-like reverence in one's life, says Groeschel, senior pastor of the multi-site church based in Oklahoma Ciy.
Last year I received an email correspondence from a desperate wife and mother: "I won't watch my kids be physically abused anymore. I won't listen to my girls be called vile, vulgar names. I won't have things smashed or broken in the house. I won't get into a vehicle and listen to him rage. No more 'spending time together' by me scrap-booking and him sitting two feet away running pornography on the computer! I refuse to stay home and not attend church because I feel guilty for leaving him alone. I will not worship quietly or secretly again … I never believed in divorce so I just kept trying. I can no longer bear it. I'm not dying inside, I have died."
