The one bright spot in 2013 news

Dec. 24, 2013 - Matt Staver, the Chairman of Liberty Counsel, says that even though the moral values of the United States are still plummeting, the tide seems to be turning in the abortion fight. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted on infanticide charges. Many states have banned most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
“The 2013 year is going to be a very historic year. More pro-life legislation was passed or put on the ballot for statewide initiatives than any other year. That momentum will continue to grow."
He says that Obamacare's forced funding of abortion has been blocked by several court-ordered injunctions.

On the negative side, Staver laments the advance of homosexual marriages in several states following the Supreme Court's actions invalidating a 2008 California constitutional amendment that defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The same court also struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Staver says these rulings give support to "call everyone who believes in marriage as one man and one woman a bigot and a hater of humanity.” However, he believes that the LGBT community has overplayed their hand in the current debate over Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson's remarks.He said that homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible. It appears that a majority of the population agrees and feels the A&E television network was intolerant for censuring him.

Prophetic Significance of Abortion

Court affirms parental rights, after 18 years!

July 12, 2013 - A law enacted in Illinois 18 years ago was finally verified as constitutional by the state supreme court in a unanimous decision.
The state’s Parental Notice of Abortion Act was adopted in 1995, but never enforced until now. It requires a parent or guardian to be notified at least 48 hours before a child under the age of 18 undergoes an abortion.
Tom Brejcha, president of the Thomas More Society, called it a huge victory for the rights of parents.

Obama Plan B Decision: Feds To Comply With NY Judge's Ruling

Jun. 10, 2013 - The federal government has decided to comply with a judges' order to allow girls of any age to buy emergency contraception without prescriptions.
The decision ends a years-long fight between President Barack Obama's administration, which had argued that age limits for the morning-after pill are common sense, and women's rights groups, which insisted the drug should be made as freely available as aspirin.

Justice Ginsburg: Roe v. Wade Too Sweeping

May 13, 2013 - Liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in favor of abortions, but she told an audience at the University of Chicago Law School that the court's decision on the Roe v. Wade case was "too sweeping," and that it actually hurt the cause of abortion by stimulating a backlash of feelings against the practice.
Ever since, she said, the momentum has been on the other side, with anger over Roe fueling a state-by-state campaign that has placed more restrictions on abortion.

FDA to Let 15 Year-Old Girls Buy Morning-After Pill Over the Counter

May 1, 2013 - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has decided to permit girls 15 years-old to purchase a contraceptive that can be used after sexual activity.
The pill known as "Plan B" has long been at the center of political and religious battles. The FDA initially approved sale of the drug to all reproductive age females, but was ordered to bar girls under 17 by U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Prosecutor to abortionist: Are you human?

Apr. 30, 2013
In an emotional moment in closing arguments by Prosecutor Ed Cameron in the abortion murder case against practitioner Kermit Gosnell, he suggested the jury must decide if the longtime abortionist even was “human.”
Cameron told the jury that his dog was treated with dignity when he had to put him to sleep, but Gosnell's victims were killed harshly and their remains were put into lime-aid jars. He told the jurors that the case wasn't even an abortion issue. The victims were already born alive when he decided to kill them.

China: 336 Million Abortions in Barely Four Decades

Mar. 20, 2013 - Since China instituted limits on population growth in 1971 336 million unborn children have been aborted there.
The staggering number of abortions should prompt mourning for the victims, but it should not be shocking, said pro-life observers of China's policy, because the Communist government has enforced a coercive "one-child" policy for more than 30 years.

Americans defend life by hundreds of thousands

Jan. 26, 2013 - Forty years after the Supreme Court legalized abortion through the Roe v. Wade decision hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists joined the March for Life in Washington DC. They still hope to overturn the decision and spread the message that all human life is to be cherished and defended. At the Supreme Court, where the march ended, some 70 women gave testimonies that they regretted having abortions.

Roe v. Wade at 40: Six questions about the state of abortion rights today

Jan. 22, 2013 - On the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision it is noteworthy that in many parts of the country it is far harder for a woman to obtain an abortion today than it was in 1973. Here are some observations from this article:
- Government regulations vary greatly, making it hard to get abortions in some places and easy in others.
- Americans United for Life says the Top 10 antiabortion states are Louisiana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Arizona, Nebraska, Indiana, Missouri, Georgia, and Virginia.
- If Roe v. Wade were reversed tomorrow 24 states would have legislation against abortion, but California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Nevada, and Washington have laws on the books protecting women’s right to an abortion.
- The number of abortion providers has been decreasing since 1982.

40 Years After Roe, Human Dignity Hangs in the Balance

Jan. 19, 2013 - Most debates "settled" by Supreme Court decisions are eventually accepted by the general public. Not so with the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion. Albert Mohler, President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary gives five reasons why the pro-life movement has not dissipated and retreated 40 years later. Here are short versions of his five points:
1 - The radical character of Roe v. Wade galvanized pro-life forces.
2 - The decision brought millions of evangelicals into what had been mostly a Catholic fight.
3 - The high percentages of abortions keeps the debate alive: eg. 40 percent of all pregnancies in New York end in abortion.
4 - Abortion has become a deadly threat to human dignity.
5 - Powerful imaging technologies now allow people to see their unborn children and witness the miracle of life.

Hobby Lobby: The First Martyr Under Obamacare?

Jan. 8, 2013 - It is interesting that December 26 is the day that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor refused judicial relief to the Hobby Lobby craft store chain regarding their objection to the Affordable Care Act because it requires them to provide birth control methods that may result in abortion. December 26 happens to be Stephen's Day, the day that honors Christendom's first martyr.

A statement from Hobby Lobby says, "The company will continue to provide health insurance to all qualified employees. To remain true to their faith, it is not their intention, as a company, to pay for abortion-inducing drugs." Contraception is not the the issue, but some of the government-approved methods will stop the growth of a fertilized egg.

As a result the government could fine Hobby Lobby $1.3 million per day! That would be the "death knell" for the company.

Apparently, that death would be more desirable to the company's owners than potentially funding the deaths of developing human beings.
