Tens of thousands of pro-lifers from across the nation are expected to gather on the National Mall Friday to protest America's embrace of abortion during the annual March for Life rally, which this year holds the theme "pro-life and pro-women go hand in hand."
Although forecasts are calling for snow this upcoming weekend, activists are still planning to bear the frigid temperatures and march down Constitution Avenue in Washington D.C. on the 43rd anniversary of Roe v.

The march is set to take place at 1 p.m. and will be preceded by musical acts and an hour-long rally near the Washington Monument that will feature a number of prominent Christian speakers such as Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, Southern Baptist Convention ethicist Russell Moore, social conservative leader Jim Daly, and a number of other prominent pro-life activists and politicians. more >>

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump recently garnered extensive criticism for reportedly botching a Bible verse at a speech before a large group of young evangelical Christians.
Speaking at Liberty University in the Commonwealth of Virginia on Monday, the billionaire real estate mogul cited a verse from Second Corinthians.
"We're going to protect Christianity. I can say that. I don't have to be politically correct … Two Corinthians, 3:17, that's the whole ballgame … is that the one you like?" stated Trump, as reported by Politico. more >>
There are some things in politics that people have a hard time explaining in words. Consider this song-and-dance number from a Donald Trump rally to be one of them.
A trio of youths known as "USA Freedom Kids" performed what The Washington Post has described as being a fusion of the patriotic World War I song "Over There" with the '80s song "Heart of Glass." Others call it "Ameritude."
As many waiting for the rally to begin applaud the girls on, lyrics about crushing enemies, no cowardice allowed, and other red-blooded Americana are invoked. more >>
