National Harbor, Md. — Members of a panel on anti-abortion activism at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday afternoon believe that the current trend of political successes for the pro-life movement may influence the Democrat Party.
"Abortion-centered feminism is dead. I really believe that's true. Now it certainly could crawl back in the crevices of new elections and new conversations and new legislative battles," said Marjorie Dannenfelser of Susan B. Anthony List.
"If we stay on the track we're on, we will continue into the next election against Hillary Clinton potentially, with a very strong, emboldened pro-life, pro-woman course, only not just Republicans but in the Hispanic community and among Democrats," she predicted. more >>

The British Parliament has voted 292 to 201 against an amendment that would have explicitly banned abortions based on the gender of the unborn child. U.K. pro-life group LIFE has said that it's "dismayed" at the results, and argued that the Parliament has failed to protect unborn girls, who are most often the victims of gender-selective abortions.
When asked by The Christian Post for comment on Tuesday, LIFE shared the following statement by spokeswoman Michaela Aston:
"Parliament yesterday failed in its duty to ensure women are not discriminated against at all stages of their lives. Instead, it caved in to the intense lobbying efforts of the abortion industry and its advocates, against the outlawing of sex selection abortion." more >>
Campus housing specifically for 15 alternative sexualities, including sadomasochists, is acceptable, but fraternities that just allow men are not, at Wesleyan University.
Wesleyan University housing has an option for students who want to live with others identifying with one of 15 categories — LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM. The university's inclusiveness excludes, however, male-only fraternities.
Delta Kappa Epsilon sued Wesleyan University after the liberal arts college ordered all of its fraternities to admit women, charging sexual discrimination and false and deceptive practices. more >>

As the hometown of world-renowned Evangelist Billy Graham, Charlotte N.C., prepares to vote on whether to allow transgenders the right to use the public restrooms that are designated for the opposite sex, his son, Franklin Graham, is questioning the judgement of the city council for even considering such a proposal.
"I cannot see why City Council would even consider this. It is not only ridiculous, it's unsafe," Graham, the 62-year-old president of Samaritan's Purse humanitarian organization and Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said in a statement.
"Common sense tells us that this would open the door, literally, to all sorts of serious concerns including giving sexual predators access to children. It violates every sense of the privacy and decency for people." more >>
