Will the Supreme Court Deny the Free Speech Rights of Pro-Life Pregnancy Support Centers?

On Tuesday, the U. S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments about the constitutionality of a California law that requires pro-life pregnancy support centers to advertise government-funded abortions. During arguments for the case, NIFLA v. Becerra, the court seemed divided, with four of the justices—Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan, and Sotomayor—signaling that the California law should be upheld, [ Read More ]

Christians Must Work Harder to Protect Babies Than Planned Parenthood Does to Endanger Them

Yesterday, Planned Parenthood’s Action Fund held a crusade in Pittsburgh, PA, recruiting and training volunteers to further its mission. “We brought 1,000 people here to train them,” said Deirdre Schifeling, the Action Fund’s executive director. “These 1,000 people are a key. These folks are going to go back, and they’re going to reach tens of thousands of other people” with Planned Parenthood’s “mission.” This crusade and others like it provide evangelical Christians another opportunity to reflect our own mission to make a mother’s womb the safest place in America.

Although the public has always known abortion to be PPFA’s rainmaker, only recently—through the release of undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP)—did the public become aware of PPFA’s practice of reselling infant body parts.
