Republican presidential candidate and retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson was asked in a Tuesday CBS News interview to clarify whether he opposes abortion in the cases of rape, incest and when the mother's life is in danger. The argument that abortion is justified when the mother's life is at risk is misleading, he answered.
While appearing on "CBS This Morning," The 63-year-old Carson was asked to respond to comments made by Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton, who recently attacked billionaire Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his misogynistic comments against women. She tried to lump in other GOP presidential candidates by calling their debate comments against abortion as being as "offensive" towards women as Trump's misogyny.
Carson initially responded by explaining that women have been instrumental in his life and praised his mother, wife and colleagues he has worked with. But not being satisfied with his answer, co-host Norah O'Donnell followed up by saying that the doctor's campaign website is not clear on where he stands on abortion in the cases of rape, incest and when the mother is at risk of losing her life. more >>

"Pat, I am very concerned because this past weekend my 6-year-old grandson said his dad told him God and Jesus were not real and were just made up to scare people about dying," wrote Elizabeth.

Black pastors are calling on the Smithsonian Institution to remove a bust of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger from the National Portrait Gallery's "Struggle for Justice Exhibit" in Washington, D.C.
The Smithsonian has fallen victim to the propaganda of abortion supporters, according to the group of black pastors who assert that while pro-choice activists praise Sanger as a hero, she was instead a woman who spoke at KKK rallies, advocated for "black eugenics" and wanted to "eliminate black births."
In a letter sent to Smithsonian last Friday, 10 pastors representing a coalition of clergy known as Ministers Taking A Stand, which promotes educational choice, entrepreneurship and strong families, urged the museum to remove the likeness of Sanger from its exhibit. more >>
Many young girls often fantasize about becoming a fashion model, but for one young woman who spent eight years living "the dream," seeing the perils of the industry was enough to turn her off for good. She hopes that her story about finding Christ in Hollywood will inspire others.
At age 17, Nicole Weider thought that she had hit the jackpot after finding success in the modeling industry shortly after relocating to Los Angeles. But after six years, what many outsiders perceive to be glitz and glamour actually turned out to be a world of darkness and destruction that left her battling a deep depression at age 23.
"I mean I saw it all," Weider told The Christian Post. "I saw many celebrities in front of me doing drugs, I saw models that I work with starving themselves, anything you can imagine I saw up close and personal." more >>
We were on the 3rd hour of the trip and somehow the youngest convinced the other two to watch a scratched version of Shrek the Third on the DVD player in the backseat.

I shrugged and pointed to the old album of discs we keep in the car for moments of travel desperation. more >>
