The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control is now urging condom use to prevent the spread of the Zika virus after health officials in Texas reported that a Dallas resident contracted the virus through sex.
Dallas County Health and Human Services officials told NBC5 that the patient got infected after having sex with an infected person who recently returned from a trip to Venezuela.
"A person who recently traveled to an area with Zika virus transmission returned to the United States and developed Zika-like symptoms. The person later tested positive for Zika, along with their sexual partner, who had not traveled to the area," a statement from the CDC said. more >>
The U.S. House of Representatives failed to override a veto to a sweeping piece of legislation that if enacted would defund Planned Parenthood.
While the Tuesday override received a majority in the House with 241 yeas to 186 nays, the Republican-dominated body failed to get the sufficient two-thirds majority of votes to override President Barack Obama's veto of HR 3762.
The Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business, is applauding United Airlines for censoring a pro-life website on its in-flight entertainment panel.
Lila Rose, president of the Live Action pro-life group, shared on social media this week that during a recent United Airlines flight, she had been censored from accessing her group's Live Action website.
Pro-abortion websites, including Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America, were accessible on the flight, Rose argued in a series of tweets to United Airlines. more >>
MANEADERO, Baja California, Mexico — Christians from Southern California traveled by tour buses to a suburb of Ensenada, Mexico, to join 150 local missionaries and believers recently to attend the grand opening of Puerta Hermosa (Beautiful Gate) Orphanage, a complex that serves as the home for abandoned and severely ill special needs children of Baja.
It is the incredibly heart-wrenching stories of the children who come to Puerta Hermosa, and the call for Christians to take care of "the least of these" that motivated groups such as Strong Tower Ministries based in Orange County to build the complex, and for others, including 100 people from the U.S., to be a part of the grand opening.
A couple of days before the ceremony on Saturday, Beautiful Gate Orphanage and Genesis Diez (umbrella ministry) founder Greg Amstutz told this reporter the story of two children who were the first taken in for care, resulting in the start of the Beautiful Gate Orphanage 10 years ago. more >>
The Texas grand jury responsible for investigating allegations that a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic used illegal practices to harvest aborted babies for profit and instead indicted the pro-life activists behind the undercover Planned Parenthood videos, never voted on issuing criminal charges against Planned Parenthood officials.
After the Center for Medical Progress released its undercover Planned Parenthood videos last year, which were the result of a 30-month investigation behind the aborted baby selling practices of Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas, California and Colorado, the state of Texas announced that it would investigate the abortion clinic's practices.
Despite the claim that an investigation was being conducted on the Planned Parenthood clinic by a grand jury in Harris County, it was CMP investigator and founder David Daleiden and one of his associates, Sandra Merritt, who wound up indicted with felony charges of tampering with governmental records (showing Planned Parenthood officials fake driver's licenses). more >>
It's a little bit of show and tell if you ask him about his strategy to change the minds of pro-choice Christians, but it also involves asking philosophical questions like, "What does it mean to be human?"
Dave Sterrett, Christian evangelist and founder of Disruptive Truth, an organization dedicated to proclaiming "the disruptive truths of Jesus until the whole world hears," thought about the question for just a little while when this reporter asked him: "What would you say to Christians who are pro-choice?"
He had just finished talking about his organization's new campaign launched this month called We Choose Life that he hopes will disrupt the conversation on abortion by providing a small group, one-day, training and discussion guide on the issue. more >>
