GOP Presidential candidate Ben Carson compared abortion to slavery, and has said that it should be illegal in cases of rape and incest.
"I know that's one of those words you're not supposed to say, but I'm saying it," Carson said in an interview with NBC News.
"During slavery, a lot of slave-owners thought they had the right to do whatever they wanted to that slave, anything that they chose. And what if the abolitionists had said, 'I don't believe in slavery, but you guys do whatever you want'? Where would we be?" 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 >>
Megachurch Pastor Robert Jeffress has suggested that GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump has a legion of "closeted" Evangelical supporters who are "almost apologetic for being attracted to him."
In an article for Fox News on Monday, Jeffress, who leads the 12,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas, said that he has talked to a number of Evangelicals in recent trips, who have told him they support Trump because they see him as a strong leader.
"After criss-crossing the country for the past few months and talking to thousands of people, I'm convinced that there are a legion of 'closeted' Evangelical Trump supporters who are almost apologetic for being attracted to him," Jeffress wrote. more >>
GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that he will not be apologizing for a comment he made about rival candidate Dr. Ben Carson's Seventh-Day Adventist faith.
Trump has earlier said that he "doesn't know" about the Christian denomination that Carson follows, which prompted the retired neurosurgeon to ask for an apology – but Trump maintained in an interview on Sunday that he meant no offense in his comment.
"I know nothing about it really. I'm a Presbyterian and I had mentioned that, and I did say I don't know about it. And in fact those are my exact words," Trump said on ABC's This Week. "I didn't say anything bad about it. I just don't know about it. I would certainly give an apology if I said something bad about it. But I didn't. All I said was I don't know about it." more >>
Having lost his Republican frontrunner status to Ben Carson, presidential candidate Donald Trump sought to compare his Presbyterian faith with that of his rival's Seventh-Day Adventist affiliation.
At a campaign rally in Jacksonville, Florida, on Saturday, Trump said, "I love Iowa. And, look, I don't have to say it, I'm Presbyterian. Can you believe it? Nobody believes I'm Presbyterian. I'm Presbyterian. I'm Presbyterian. I'm Presbyterian."
