WASHINGTON — Tens of thousands of people from across the United States and abroad gathered at National Mall for the annual March for Life. The large gathering calling for the advancement of the pro-life cause in America took place as the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives gave the demonstrators a mixed message.
While the lower House of Congress passed a bill to strip abortion providers of taxpayer funds, called the No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act, they delayed a vote on a ban for abortions performed twenty weeks after fertilization, known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
Rick Santorum, former Republican member of the U.S. Senate and participant in the March for Life, told The Christian Post that he was happy with the vote to approve the No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act. more >>

Tyler Perry has shared his prayer for his friend to ignore people's opinions and hopes his words can help others.
Perry, the 45-year-old playwright, took to his Facebook to share some struggles that a friend of his was going through.
"I sent this to a friend of mine last night who's been going through some things. She's a talented gifted woman, but she started paying attention to the voices and chatter of the people around her and stopped looking at the blessing she was standing on," Perry wrote in the Facebook post. "She was looking so low that she didn't realize how high up she was. I think we're all guilty of that at some point or another." more >>
Louisiana Governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate Bobby Jindal sent a letter to the governors of the 49 other U.S. states inviting them to participate in the national prayer gathering that he has organized in Baton Rouge this Saturday.
A copy of Jindal's letter was released to the Christian Broadcasting Network's David Brody. In the letter, Jindal states that "America, our great nation, is in need" and has called on the governors to come participate in an "apolitical" gathering for a "solemn assembly of worship." At the event, Jindal writes that worshippers will call on "our great Creator to intervene on behalf of our people and nation."
The prayer rally, which has been named, "The Response: A Call To Prayer For a Nation In Crisis," will take place at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, the home of the Louisiana State University basketball team. The worship event is scheduled to last about six hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jindal had previously issued an invite to everyone in America to join in the six hours of prayer, although the assembly center only seats a little over 14,000. more >>
