Abortion rates in Iowa have been steadily ticking down for ten years and counting! Between 2006 and 2017, the abortion rate has dropped nearly 50 percent.
When people are confronted by the horrific reality of abortion and how it effects individual children, mothers, and families they can be swayed.
Iowa Governor Terry Branstad was heckled by unidentified pro-abortion activist during his remarks at “The Roe v. Wade Effect” luncheon in Des Moines.
A Call to Action from The Palmetto Family Alliance The massive bill that set up “Obamacare” had one useful provision: states could vote to opt-out of coverage for abortion. Seeing this opportunity, SC Senator Larry Grooms introduced a bill (S.102) to do just that. But, pro-abortion Senators responded, placing a “minority report” on the bill. That […]
And the announcement goes viral among Pro-Lifers. The announcement came yesterday, from what I understand. By 4PM yesterday (I don’t know which time zone), the Flickr page was so filled with Pro-Life pics, it was reportedly amazing. As many as 11-to-1 Pro-Life. And a NARAL representative checked in on the page and immediately started purging […]
Danny Burk shared a story about an encounter he had while doing sidewalk counseling outside of an abortion clinic in his community. While this is anecdotal, and not universally representative of every person who favors abortion rights, it does demonstrate the passion and irrationality that many in this camp have in terms of their position. […]
A House Joint Resolution (HJR 2003) was filed in the Iowa House today by 16 Representatives. It proposes an amendment to the Iowa Constitution to specify that the right of life is paramount and most fundamental right of every person (I seem to remember reading that in one of our founding documents, hmmmm…). This calls […]
I’ve posted on a Biblical basis for personhood of the preborn, and then most recently blogged on God’s ownership of us and His creation. The next thing to look at as we discuss a biblical/theological framework for the pro-life position is the question – who has the prerogative over human life and death? “‘See now […]
1. Slow Motion Coffee – some cool slow motion pictures of a drop of cream going into coffee. HT: Two Feathers 2. U.N.: Afghan Death sentence for journalist distributing an article with anit-Islam sentiment is “a possible misuse of the judicial process.” This is incredible. I thought the Taliban was gone. A death sentence should […]
I am continuing to lay a biblical framework for the pro-life position. Last time I dealt with personhood and how the Bible clearly demonstrates that personhood does begin inside the womb. I am, at the moment, just making a theological argument and will look at other aspects of this debate later on. One argument often […]
1. More problems with the Episcopal Church – a leading Episcopal conservative is urging the denomination to halt the process of disciplining Bishop Robert Duncan of Pittsburgh because of his movement toward disaffiliation. “In brief, I would urge TEC (The Episcopal Church) and other Anglican bishops to pray for and take action so that this […]
This deals with the fundamental question… when does life begin? At what stage do we consider someone a person? As an embryo? As a fetus (latin for: “little one”)? When they are born? Because if we consider that life begins at conception, that at that point is when we are who we are then all […]
1. January is National Mentoring Month, and my ministry’s blog, Serve Our Youth Network News, has posted several items related to mentoring, our mentoring program and National Mentoring Month. 2. Chuck Colson on “Truth, Love and Endurance: Dr. King and Christian Activism” you can also listen to his commentary. 3. Justin Taylor interviews Robert P. […]
Today marks the 35th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision making abortion legal in the United States. Since 1973 over 50 million children have been aborted. There is some good news in that abortion rates have lowered to levels not seen since the 1970s. A new study shows the rate of abortions is the […]
