Pro-abortion reverend calls pro-lifers “wolves” and “false prophets” in Christmas greeting

Dec. 28, 2014 - Reverend Harry Knox is director of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC). It is the largest faith-based pro-abortion organization in the nation.
Churches like the United Methodists, Evangelical Lutheran, Presbyterian USA, and Episcopals, as well as a host of more well-known liberal churches, are the composite of this campaign for death in the name of the One who came to bring us life.
Knox perverts what the Bible has to say and calls anti-abortion leaders "wolves in sheep's clothing" and "false prophets."

Evangelist leaves celebrity psychiatrist tongue-tied

Aug. 28, 2014 -
Evangelist and Christian author Ray Comfort, whose new book “Hitler, God, and the Bible” and its accompanying movie “180? are energizing pro-life activists across the nation with a simple, truthful approach to the issue, has left prominent celebrity psychologist Carole Lieberman tongue-tied.
During the interview, Lieberman, who apparently didn't know what the book was about, said, “I don’t want to talk about Darwin. I don’t want to talk about abortion.” Comfort held his own with poise and ended up giving her the Gospel.

Supreme Court backs Hobby Lobby in contraceptive mandate challenge

Jun. 30, 2014 -
The Supreme Court ruled Monday that certain "closely held" for-profit businesses can cite religious objections in order to opt out of a requirement in ObamaCare to provide free contraceptive coverage for their employees.
The 5-4 decision was the first time the court has ruled that for-profit businesses can cite religious views under federal law. Justice Samuel Alito wrote the majority opinion. The document calls the contraceptive mandate in its current form "unlawful."

Decision Day: Hobby Lobby team ‘very confident’ ahead of Supreme Court ruling

Jun. 30, 2014 - A ruling will be issued today about Hobby Lobby's suit against the government concerning the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care). The issue is the requirement that the chain of arts and crafts stores must cover contraception options for women even though some of them abort a newly- conceived fetus.
Supporters of Hobby Lobby cite a few factors potentially leaning in their favor, including the tone of oral arguments in March and a unanimous decision last week finding President Obama overreached in making recess appointments to a labor board.

Supreme Court strikes down abortion clinic buffer zone

Jun. 26, 2014 - Free speech was upheld by the Supreme Court today by striking down a Massachussetts law that kept pro-life demonstrators out of a large buffer zone around abortion clinics.
The court ruled unanimously that Massachusetts went too far -- literally -- when it created 35-foot buffer zones around abortion clinics to keep demonstrators away from patients.

A total victory for pro-life speech

May 7, 2014 - A federal court has struck down a county ordinance in Maryland that was "designed to drive women away."
Several years ago, Montgomery County passed an ordinance requiring those pregnancy centers to post signs stating they do not provide contraception or abortions – and to state that in advertising.
A federal court struck down the entire law.

At issue: Just how much does gov't respect religious beliefs?

Mar. 26, 2014 - The Supreme Court heard arguments yesterday about the right of two companies (Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties) to not provide the "morning after" pill, a drug that terminates the growth of a just-conceived embryo. Jordan Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice told One News Now that he hopes the public is aware of the importance of the case;
"It's the top case when it comes to the healthcare law and it's the top case when it comes to the life issue and abortion."
Attorney Cathy Ruse of the Family Research Council reported that the court heard a "startling" admission by the government attorney. "... When Justice Kennedy asked the government's attorney whether he believes family businesses could be forced to pay for abortion even over their religious objections, the government attorney said yes."

At Supreme Court today: Health-law cases mix questions of religious freedom, worker rights

Mar. 25, 2014 - The Supreme Court will hear two cases involving companies that claim they cannot conform to the Obamacare mandate to provide abortifacient contraceptives to their workers. The health law requires them “to do precisely what their religion forbids them or face draconian consequences — including millions in fines, private lawsuits and government enforcement actions.”

One [case] was brought by the owners of Hobby Lobby, an arts-and-crafts chain of more than 500 stores. Their founder, David Green, said the company is run on biblical principles.

The second case concerns Conestoga Wood Specialties, a Pennsylvania cabinet-making company owned by a Mennonite family. They also say that they cannot comply with the contraceptive mandate.

The cases ask a question the court has never confronted: whether or not the Constitution or the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) that protects an individual’s exercise of religion extends to secular, for-profit corporations and their owners.

Abortion rate falls to lowest since 1973

Feb. 4, 2014 - Abortion rates in 2011 dropped to 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women ages 15-44. This is the lowest rate since 1973. New pro-life laws are being adopted and in 2013 eighty-one abortion facilities were permanently closed. Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, senior fellow of Concerned Women for America’s Beverly LaHaye Institute, explained:
“Our young women are benefiting as fewer are engaging in too-early sex, fewer are choosing abortion, fewer doctors are willing to do abortions, and more clinics are closing.”

Restrictive Abortion 'bubble zone' law now before the Supreme Court

Jan. 15, 2014 - A 2007 Massachusetts law that establishes a 35-foot "bubble zone" around abortion clinic entrances is being reviewed by the Supreme Court. They will hear oral arguments today. The Pro-Life Action League describes that law as "the most restrictive in the country." Eric Scheidler explains that the restricted zone includes a public sidewalk that should be available to everyone.
"You have to be silent if you're pro-life when you're on this sidewalk, but if you're pro-choice you can say whatever you want."
