A website claiming to have been created by a 26-year-old pregnant woman, who intends to have an abortion on July 10, has issued a challenge to pro-life donors, stating that if they want to save her unborn baby's life, they must donate $1 million in three days through the website or else she will have the abortion.
On a website called ProLifeandAntiWoman.com, the alleged pregnant graduate student writes that she's seven-weeks pregnant and has "every intention of having an abortion," but is giving the "157 million Americans that identify as pro-life" the chance to prevent it.
The student explains that she goes to school in a state that "has very recently passed extremely restrictive abortion laws" requiring women to wait three days after consulting an abortionist before they can have the procedure, which is likely North Carolina since the state passed that law in April. more >>

The U.S. Supreme Court struck down four state constitutional amendments defining marriage as between one man and one woman in a landmark decision.
After years of refusing to take up the matter, the highest court in the land ruled 5-4 Friday in Obergefell v. Hodges that state-level gay marriage bans are unconstitutional, concluding that 14th Amendment requires a state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion, reversing the ruling in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled such bans constitutional. more >>
I write you on the behalf of many of my generation regarding the question of how to keep millennials interested and engaged in the Church.
I write as a friend, a church congregant, and—perhaps most importantly—I write as a member of that generation that only faintly remembers VHS tapes and cannot recall a time before the internet or cell phones. I write as someone who remembers being deeply upset that he could not watch American Idol's second season finale because it went on far past his bedtime. more >>
After last Wednesday night's Bible study at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston ended with nine people losing their lives in a violent act of racial hatred, over 100 worshipers gathered in the very same room just one week later to continue the church's Wednesday night tradition.
Interim pastor Norvel Goff Sr., who's standing in for slain Rev. Clementa Pinckney, said that while Wednesday night Bible studies would never be the same for members of the church, he believed that faith had brought the 100-strong crowd to the same basement room only a week later to continue worshipping the Lord.
"This territory belongs to God," Goff told the crowd at the Bible study, as quoted by CNN. "Bible study will continue. But because of what happened, we will never be the same." more >>
Conservatives have more self-control than liberals, according to research published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and the result is likely due to conservatives being more likely to believe that they have self-control.
Researchers conducted three different experiments for the study, "The self-control consequences of political ideology."
The first experiment, with 147 undergraduates, found that conservatives were quicker at completing a modified "Stroop test," a common test used in psychology to measure the ability to focus attention on a task. more >>
