To say that a former Planned Parenthood facility in Texas has been given new life would be an understatement.
A commercial property located in Bryan-College Station that once housed a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic is now the home of a healthcare facility, pregnancy center and a pro-life organization.
Last week Hope Pregnancy Centers celebrated the one year anniversary of its closing on the Bryan-College Station complex. more >>
Now solidly a frontrunner in the presidential race, Dr. Ben Carson delivered two speeches at Cornerstone Church in Madison, Tennessee, Sunday, where he defended his Old Earth creationist worldview and American political liberties.
Speaking at the megachurch, Carson said his creationist views aided his career as a surgeon and medical doctor. The Tennessean reported that Carson's speech alternated between the style of a sermon and stump speech, while heavily critiquing some forms of evolutionary theory.
"They say, 'Carson, ya know, how can you be a surgeon, a neurosurgeon, and believe that God created the Earth, and not believe in evolution, which is the basis of all knowledge and all science," declared Carson. more >>
China's Communist Party has decided to abolish its decades-long, draconian one-child policy, according to State media, which also said that couples will be allowed to have two children. Women will still be forced to abort all subsequent pregnancies, however.
"The change of policy is intended to balance population development and address the challenge of an ageing population," the ruling party said while announcing the plan at a Central Committee meeting Thursday, the State-controlled Xinhua new agency reported.
A final plan will be ratified by the annual session of China's top legislature in March, it added. more >>
Pro-life Evangelical leaders are hoping to build upon the success of the annual March for Life by hosting their first-ever pro-life conference in the nation's capital.
Scheduled to be held Jan. 21-22, the "Evangelicals for Life" event will be hosted by Focus on the Family and the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Evangelicals owe "an incalculable debt" to Roman Catholics who created the March for Life, said ERLC President Russell Moore during an on-the-record conference call Tuesday that included Focus on the Family Community Outreach Vice President Kelly Rosati. more >>
The Center for Medical Progress released its 11th undercover video investigation of Planned Parenthood Tuesday in which it shows a Texas-based abortionist describing how she manipulates a baby's position in the womb to pull it out by its feet and trunk first. The technique the abortionist describes, according to pro-life groups, is the same procedure as an illegal partial birth abortion.
In the video, which was recorded during a conference for abortion providers on Oct. 12, 2014, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas abortionist Dr. Amna Dermish is seen describing the methods she uses to perform between 250 and 300 abortions a month, up to 22 weeks gestation, at a clinic where she's the sole provider.
"My aim is to get the specimins out intact," she says, before recounting how she was trained by Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Services, Deborah Nucatola, to move the baby to a breech position "using ultrasound guidence." more >>
Proponents for the legalization of recreational marijuana have said over and over again that marijuana is less harmful to society than alcohol and tobacco. Thus, it makes no sense; it's even hypocritical to keep it illegal, they say.
To argue marijuana is harmless goes against some of the most reputable studies from Europe and the United States. Moreover, only two years ago, the nation's largest medical group, the American Medical Association, explicitly stated that they oppose legalization, rejected calls for them to become "neutral," and advocated for full funding of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. The American Psychiatric Association has also issued a statement outlining the many public health harms of the drug. 
In their recent book, "Going to Pot," William J. Bennett and Robert A. White rightly note, "[I]t is inexplicable that as the balance of public opinion has been moving toward the legalization of marijuana, the balance of science and medicine has been moving toward broad agreement on marijuana's harms and dangers."  more >>
