Planned Parenthood supporters in positions of government power are looking to jail and financially destroy the producer of the undercover sting videos that have brought attention to the abortion giant's illegal practices, a pro-life lawyer claims.
Tom Brejcha, an attorney for the Thomas More Society, said anti-abortion activist and Center For Medical Progress founder David Daleiden is facing aggressive lawsuits for his undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood, and their end goal is to put him in jail and "destroy him financially."
David Daleiden and Tom Brejcha were two of the four figures who presented during a "Stop Baby Parts Trafficking" live webcast Tuesday. The simulcast was hosted by David Bereit, the national director of 40 Days for Life, a pro-life mobilization effort. more >>
As polling data suggests that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to attract the support of about a fifth of Evangelical voters, prominent Christian ethicist Russell Moore opined Thursday that Evangelicals and social conservatives who back the real estate mogul are defying their Christian morals.
In a Thursday op-ed for The New York Times, Moore, who is the president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, argued that Trump's campaign rhetoric is nothing more than "authoritarian lines with no principles, just audacity," and points out that Trump's attitude towards women and immigrants stand directly against Christian values.
"Donald J. Trump stands astride the polls in the Republican presidential race, beating all comers in virtually every demographic of the primary electorate. Most illogical is his support from evangelicals and other social conservatives," Moore wrote. "To back Mr. Trump, these voters must repudiate everything they believe." more >>
"Return to the Hiding Place," the thrilling story of Dutch Christian watchmaker Corrie ten Boom and how she risked life and limb to protect Jews from Nazis soldiers, became available for widespread distribution via DVD and iTunes Tuesday. The film, which features Hollywood veteran Jonathan Rhys-Davies ("Lord of the Rings," "Raiders of the Lost Ark"), is a sequel to "The Hiding Place," which was presented by Billy Graham in 1975.
The film revisits the true story through the perspective of Dutch resistance fighter Hans Poley (David Thomas Jenkins), a young Dutchman who escaped capture in Holland during their occupation in World War II. He's subsequently rescued by ten Boom (Mimi Sagadin) and her family, who recruit an army of youths to protect Jews from the atrocities of the Nazis. Some of the Jewish teenagers help the resistance during the action-packed movie, which is full of daring rescues, explosions and close calls with the Gestapo.
"Return to the Hiding Place," which has won 19 film festival awards and was shown during the Sundance Film Festival, also highlights how the ten Boom family was motivated to help the desperate Jews by their Christian morals and beliefs. more >>
It is now Donald Trump's turn to be attacked by his political rivals at the Republican U.S. presidential debate on Wednesday as they seek to gain traction over the top-rating real estate mogul.
Donald Trump, however, is not one to go down without a good fight. When attacked by his rivals at the Republican U.S. presidential debate held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, the GOP frontrunner retaliated and lashed back out at his opponents, according to CNN.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul questioned at the beginning of the debate if the public really wants someone with Trump's "kind of character." He also scolded the billionaire for criticizing people's physical appearance, the report relays. more >>
While the prime time GOP debate saw plenty of jabs and barbs traded among the top candidates vying for the Republican nomination, Donald Trump retreated in his criticism of Carly Fiorina's appearance.
"I think she's got a beautiful face, and I think she's a beautiful woman," Trump declared.
CNN debate moderator Jake Tapper brought up Trump's interview last week with Rolling Stone, where he was quoted as saying, "Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?" more >>
Republican presidential candidates debated the best way to defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood, and whether a forced government shutdown would work or do more harm, at Wednesday night's debate on CNN.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz called Planned Parenthood "an ongoing criminal enterprise" that should not receive over $500 million in annual tax dollars, and called on Republican leaders in the House and Senate to "stop surrendering" and "start standing."
"These are horrifying. On these videos, Planned Parenthood also essentially confesses to multiple felonies," declared Cruz. "It is a felony with ten years' jail term to sell the body parts of unborn children for profit. That's what these videos show Planned Parenthood doing." more >>
