  • At Students for Life, Kristan Hawkins wonders what Michael Voris’ point was when he created an error-filled video which makes dubious claims about abortion and the pro-life movement. Hawkins says Voris is “irresponsible” and using “faulty logic” to claim “abortion numbers aren’t declining,” among other things. Hawkins backs up her rebuttal with links to the facts:

    Not citing any sources, he proclaimed that chemical abortions aren’t tracked and comprise a quarter of all abortions. Therefore, he said, these must be added to the million+ abortions every year, which basically comes out to a number that shows abortions are not declining.

    While Voris appears to make a convincing case in his six-minute video, he is wrong.

The “secret shame” of abortion in the church

Leaders in post-abortion recovery ministry say the church remains reluctant to fully face the impact of abortion within their own congregations.

[Post-abortion counselor Kathy] Rutledge said she once gave her testimony to a group of women at a megachurch in the South and by the end, several women were “practically bawling.” Yet, when Rutledge asked about doing a follow-up, the group’s leader said, “None of my women have had an abortion… and even if they did, they don’t need to be speaking about it.”

  • Moral Outcry comments on a Christianity Today article on a conference of young evangelicals who largely agreed that contraception should be promoted among Christian singles as a way to prevent abortions:

    Combating abortion in the church isn’t going to happen by endorsing abortifacient birth control with a weak justification that since singles might sin anyway, we should help “prevent” the problem. Acknowledging a sinful lifestyle is just “how it is now” is agreeing with the kingdom of darkness that sin can be relative to situations.

    Further, by trying to reduce the problem, we send a message that a baby is only a blessing if it’s a desired baby that comes through marriage and a couple’s want. Psalm 127:3 reminds us, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.”

    Shockingly enough, Jesus and the Apostle Paul advocated celibacy and purity.

Can Romney get evangelical Christian support?

I think that people have to understand that being for Rick Santorum does not necessarily mean you’re anti-Romney. And against Barack Obama, it will not be very difficult at all for Mr. Romney to garner the support of… the evangelicals, unless he were to do something catastrophic, like pick a pro-choice running mate, which I […]

Weekend question: Will loss of Democrat pro-lifers in Congress help or hurt movement?

An October 28 Christianity Today article entitled, “The death of pro-life Democrats,” included this sobering observation: Thanks to pro-life groups and backlash over health care reform, the Democratic pro-life vote in the House of Representatives is likely to halve on November 2, making abortion even more of a partisan issue. The actual decrease according to […]

by Christianity Today: Why then, in the face of its bad arguments, does the pro-choice movement continue to prevail legally and politically? I think it’s because abortion is the debris of the sexual revolution. We have seen a great shift in the sexual mores of Americans in the past half-century. Today a widespread social understanding […]
