NEW YORK — Actors Kevin Sorbo and Alan Powell who star in the film "Caged No More" reveal shocking statistics about sex trafficking, the world's fastest-growing crime, and how the newly released movie is educating and empowering people to take action and save lives.
"I knew it existed, I didn't know it was to this level. I always thought, 'Oh it's in Asia, it's in Russia, it's in some other country.' [But] not here," Sorbo said about human trafficking during an interview with The Christian Post. "It's always been there, we're just more aware of it now."
Much like his co-star, Powell also didn't realize how prevalent the horrific crime is. "I read the script and said, there's no way this really happens," he revealed. The young actor said it really hit him when he was sent articles of human trafficking incidents that happened in his home town just miles away from where he lives. more >>
WASHINGTON — The mass excitement, interest and outrage that ensued following the release of the Center for Medical Progress' undercover Planned Parenthood videos last summer "is dead," a pro-life author asserted Thursday.
Trillia Newbell, who is the director of community outreach for the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and author of the 2015 book Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves, participated in a panel discussion at the 2016 Evangelicals for Life conference where she discussed how millennials are impacting the pro-life movement.
Newbell was asked by moderator Briana Stensrud about the CMP Planned Parenthood undercover videos that showed the inhumane realities behind the practices at abortion clinics and what they have done to change the abortion landscape in communities. more >>
Ahmed and his college-aged American friends have long considered themselves to be committed supporters of Palestinian solidarity.
The young college student joined the Boycott Divestment Sanctions Movement in the hopes of forcing Israel to end the occupation of the Palestinian Territories.
"We boycott a lot of stuff to fight Israeli Apartheid," said Ahmed. "I haven't eaten hummus, fired an uzi, or used a mobile phone in years. No sacrifice is too great for the BDS Movement." more >>
Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has praised a recent Google doodle of a pro-life feminist leader, and argued that human life should not be considered precious because of its ability to contribute to society, but because every human being is made in the image of God.
"As Christians we need to tell others why human life — every human life — is valuable, starting with God's Word. A life isn't intrinsically valuable because he or she can contribute to society; a life has intrinsic value because every human being is made in God's image (Genesis 1:27), and is a being who will live forever," Ham wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday.
"The Psalms remind us that 'I am fearfully and wonderfully made' (Psalm 139:14) and Jeremiah says that 'before I formed you in the womb I knew you' (Jeremiah 1:5). When we start our thinking with God's Word, it's readily apparent that every life has value, worth, and dignity," he added, and pointed to an AiG article from Sunday, which further elaborates on the topic. more >>
After 500 women were attacked in Cologne and other German cities on New Year's Eve, 40 percent of those being sexual assaults, one European expert suggests that while the refugee vetting system reveals the idea of a "Fortress Europe" is an illusion, this is no time for hysterics.
Stefani Weiss, director and expert on European politics at Bertelsmann Stiftung, an independent, nonprofit German foundation, told The Christian Post in a phone interview this week that Germany is facing significant challenges due to the ongoing refugee crisis, but said that with the help of other European States, the situation can still be stabilized.
"The important thing is not to become hysterical. As painful as the incident in Cologne is, this is not a picture of daily life and security in Germany," Weiss told CP. more >>
WASHINGTON — Women are being "victimized" and in some cases killed as a result of abortion procedures, yet lack of accurate data recording is keeping Americans in the dark about the issue, a prominent obstetrician-gynecologist who has been in her field for over 40 years explained Thursday.
During a panel discussion at the 2016 Evangelicals for Life conference, Dr. Freda Bush, a clinical instructor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Mississippi Medical Center who is an American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists board member, questioned whether Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics are doing their part to explain the real and fatal health risks of abortion to young women who are looking for a way out of their crisis pregnancies.
In the discussion, which was focused on the aftermath of Center for Medical Progress' undercover Planned Parenthood aborted baby body parts videos, Bush called for the "full disclosure" on how Planned Parenthood clinics respond to protect women who experience serious complications as a result of abortion procedures. more >>
