Why Americans Should Applaud the Virginia, New York Abortion Bills

Americans should applaud the new abortion legislation proposed in states like Virginia and New York. That’s because, in bowing to a progressive agenda, these bills are exposing abortion for what it is: death.  Several states already support abortion up until birth. But only now are Americans causing an uproar over them. That’s because certain politicians appear to not only support and celebrate unrestricted abortion, but also expand it to include newborns. Infanticide. That isn’t something that just concerns the pro-life movement and Republicans. It’s detached from Democrats. It’s out of touch with Americans. It’s atrocious to human beings.  Or it should be.  Read more: https://townhall.com/columnists/katieyoder/2019/02/01/why-americans-should-applaud-the-virginia-new-york-abortion-bills-n2540640

British Jury Delivers First Conviction for Female Genital Mutilation

A woman in London was convicted over the genital cutting of her daughter, becoming the first person to be successfully prosecuted under the country’s law banning the practice.  The 37-year-old woman was found guilty of committing female genital mutilation in August 2017, when her daughter was 3.  “Female genital mutilation has an appalling physical and emotional impact on victims that usually lasts their entire life,” said Lynette Woodrow, a deputy chief crown prosecutor, in a statement. “A 3-year-old has no power to resist or fight back.”  The girl was “deliberately cut and her injuries amounted to F.G.M.,” the statement from prosecutors said, referring to female genital mutilation, the practice of a girl’s genitalia being cut and removed.  Read more: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/01/world/europe/female-genital-mutilation-conviction-britain.html

The Left’s War against Christianity Enters Final Stages

The disturbing attack on Covington Catholic School is yet another salvo in the ongoing war against Christians. It pours the footers for what is coming next — an all out attack to cripple Christian schools. That, in turn, will lay the cultural and legal foundation for breaking the organized church.  Karen Pence, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence, was attacked for teaching at a Christian school.  The school holds to biblical standards of homosexuality.  As that is not acceptable, the attack on Pence and the school was quick and brutal, with media commentators criticizing Pence for, essentially, being a Bible-believing Christian.  CNN anchor John King actually if it was right for her to have Secret Service protection and housing as that is paid for by all taxpayers.  Read more: https://therevolutionaryact.com/war-christianity-final-stages/

Religion of Peace Update: Pakistan high court upholds Asia Bibi acquittal

Rimmel Mohydin of Amnesty International reacted to the news: “After nine years behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit, it is difficult to see this long overdue verdict as justice. But she should now be free to reunite with her family and seek safety in a country of her choice,” stated Mohydin.  “This shameful delay in enforcing Asia Bibi’s rights only reinforces the need for the Pakistani government to repeal the blasphemy laws as well as other laws that discriminate against religious minorities and put their lives in danger.”  Violent protests took place in response to the news of Bibi’s acquittal.  Qari Muhammad Salam, an Islamic cleric, said that he believed that Bibi “deserves the death sentence according to the law.”  “If you start forgiving people on this issue, then it will become routine that people will commit blasphemy and just ask for forgiveness,” stated Salam.  Read more: https://www.christianpost.com/news/pakistan-high-court-upholds-asia-bibi-acquittal.html

Doctor Who Has Delivered Nearly 4,000 Babies Torches New York Abortion Law

Dr. William Lile, a board certified obstetrician-gynecologist, issued a blistering condemnation of New York state’s recently passed law which allows abortion up until birth.  Dr. Wile argues that “modern medical technology is already giving preborn babies blood transfusions, heart surgery, and more.” Many of these surgeries can occur at 22 weeks.  None of that matters to New York Democrats who celebrated the passage of the bill.  Dr. Wile responded to these cheers by saying, “Celebrating what? The governor just signed a law saying that we can take the lives of the babies in the womb up until their due date. That’s nothing to celebrate…To take the lives of these babies in the womb breaks my heart. It is not good for us and is not good for America.”  Read more: https://townhall.com/tipsheet/timothymeads/2019/01/27/doctor-who-has-delivered-nearly-4-000-babies-torches-new-york-abortion-law-n2540284

Texas Transgender Bills to ‘Ban Christianity’ in Texas?

The magnitude of the latest wave of pro-LGBTQ legislation in Texas is so severe that one conservative columnist argues that the left is attempting “to ban Christianity in Texas.”  Texas Pastors Council President Dave Welch believes that it is absurd that the ultra-left is now arguing that a person’s decision to believe they are the opposite sex is given the same recognition and precedence as a person’s natural-born ethnicity.  “The mad dash by some Democrat House and Senate members to push false narratives that sexual behavior is the same as skin color and that mental illness deserves the same honored status as religious belief is ominous evidence that the criminalization of religious faith and common sense are on the horizon,” Welch warned.  Read more:  https://onenewsnow.com/legal-courts/2019/01/26/texas-transgender-bills-to-ban-christianity-in-texas

Catholic Whistleblower Criticizes Vatican Abuse Summit for Only Addressing Minor Abuse

Faithful Catholics — many of whom have been personally impacted by the current sex abuse crisis in the Church — expressed renewed concerns on how the Church is addressing it. Reports of “dismay, distress and disappointment” were just some of the reactions posted after the Holy See Press Office released their statement on the meeting, where presidents of the world’s bishops’ conferences will gather with Pope Francis to discuss clerical sex abuse.  One such Catholic, Siobhan O’Connor—known for her role as reluctant “Whistleblower” in the cases of cover-up and suppression of abuse by Bishop Richard Malone, says the Vatican’s talking points filled her with “immense disappointment and dismay.”  Read more: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/bishop-whistleblower-criticizes-vatican-abuse-summit-for-only-addressing-mi
