Former President Jimmy Carter has said in an interview that he does not believe Jesus Christ would support abortion in most cases, identifying the "only conflict" he's had between his political duties and Christian faith.
"I have never believed that Jesus would be in favor of abortion, unless it was the result of rape or incest, or the mother's life was in danger. That's been the only conflict I've had in my career between political duties and Christian faith," Carter told The New York Times in an interview posted on Friday.
How can we claim to be superior to nations who commit genocide when we commit infanticide? Destroying innocent life and harvesting human organs is beyond barbaric -- it is unimaginably immoral, grotesque, and evil.
Only evil could treat the organs of innocent babies as if they were fan belts, fenders, or fuel lines for a Ford -- to be swapped, sold, discarded and disposed at the whims of a mechanic.
Each year, Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions, and 92 percent of pregnant women who walk into Planned Parenthood receive an abortion. Since 1973, abortion has ended the lives of 60 million babies, and we will never know how many of these souls were harvested to the highest bidder. more >>
An appeals court panel has ruled unanimously against a family-owned pharmacy suing Washington for an exemption to the state's birth control mandate.
A three judge panel from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that Ralph's Thriftway must provide birth control items like the Plan B pill, which could be an abortifacient under certain circumstances, reversing a lower court decision.

President Barack Obama and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon must recognize the ongoing mass murder, torture and rape of Christians, Yezidis, and other religious minorities at the hands of IS as a "genocide," former Congressman Frank R. Wolf said earlier this week.
"Genocidal intent can clearly be seen in Islamic State's ideology and mission which is directed toward the creation of a global caliphate that has been purged of every man, woman and child deemed to be an 'unbeliever' through either forced conversion or death," Wolf said in a letter to Obama and Ban.
"In Iraq, this has manifested most clearly in the insurgency's actions against Christians and Yezidis. They have been killed, tortured, kidnapped, raped, sold into slavery, and forcibly removed from their homeland." more >>
DOHUK, Iraq — The Islamic State's limitless brutality is known far and wide, with thousands of survivors reporting cases of mass murders, rape and the sexual enslavement of women and children. Now new reports reveal that the radical movement has reached a new low — targeting disabled people.
Refugee survivors narrowly escaping the clutches of Islamic State fighters in Iraq and Syria have reported that the fighters often kill and torture special needs civilians when they capture them.
Twenty-seven-year-old Summer Khaleel Khaleel, a Syrian refugee from the town of Al Hasakah, told of her escape to The Christian Post after she fled her village when IS fighters took control. "We heard of many cases of the fighters abusing and killing disabled people, so I fled with my family and my disabled husband as soon as we could find an exit out of the country." more >>
Following Donald Trump's appearance last week at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa, CNN's Anderson Cooper sought out clarification on Trump's assertion that he's unsure if he ever asks God's forgiveness.
Cooper used part of Wednesday's interview to ask follow up questions for Trump in what some commentators believed were awkward comments he made regarding forgiveness and communion. During the CNN interview, Trump fired back at Cooper's citing of certain polls and other assertions, telling him "people don't trust you."
