APPOINT: Join the Fight Against Abortion


“Do you want a heavier coat?” the lady asked me. Maybe she had seen me trembling as the cold, late-fall wind snaked over us. But as I glanced down at my white hands that were shaking as they grasped at each other, I knew that the chilly day had nothing to do with it …. I had just witnessed murder. I had watched a dozen children brought to their deaths and the cold terror filled me. I stood...

Why I Didn’t Cry


I watched a sad movie, but I didn’t cry. It was more than sad, really – it was scary and gruesome, but I just cringed a little. No tears here. Don’t be surprised, because I’ve grown up with this sort of thing. After it rings in your ears and clutters your Facebook, you just get used to it. It’ll be okay. The plot? Little children having their spines snipped – by a doctor, no...

Save The Storks: Pro-Life Ministry


My name is Marcie Little and I recently started working for a nonprofit called Save the Storks. Their mission is simple: To empower abortion-minded women to choose life, and to share with those same women the gospel of Christ. Their mission is not unique; a lot of pro-life groups and organizations do the same thing. But their method is something quite innovative and revolutionary. Acknowledging...

Student Group Uncovers Planned Parenthood’s Lies


Twenty-year-old Lila Rose and her pro-life student group, Live Action, have been hard at work the past three years uncovering the medical lies and manipulative counseling offered at Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain. “They will do or say anything in order to sell more abortions to more women, whether it is covering up sexual abuse or lying to women about medical...

The Abortion Debate is Changing


Though overshadowed by the recent murder of abortionist, Dr. George Tiller, the abortion debate does show signs of shifting in a pro-life direction. For the first time since Gallup began tracking the issue, a majority of Americans consider themselves “pro-life” — a reversal of 2006 numbers. Other studies indicate that our generation is the most pro-life generation since Roe vs. Wade —...

12-Year-Old Speaks Out on Abortion


Brett and I have received a lot of emails about this video (and rightly so). Despite being threatened with disqualification for her controversial topic, 12-year-old Lia chose to deliver this speech for competition at her public school in Toronto — and won! Now her eloquent defense of life has been viewed almost 400,000 times on YouTube — and even saved a baby’s life. Read more about this...

Kristi Burton: Defending the Rights of the Unborn


Watch the Personhood Amendment video above, featuring Kristi Burton. Kristi Burton, founder of Colorado for Equal Rights, was thirteen when she decided to spend her life defending the unborn. “It just came to me,” she told the Denver Post earlier this year. “I prayed about it and knew God was calling me to do it.” Eight years later, Kristi is spearheading the Colorado...

Lila Rose: Fighting for the Unborn


Lila Rose, 18, is a sophomore at UCLA and the founder of Live Action, a pro-life organization on campus. In March, she visited a Planned Parenthood clinic in Los Angeles armed with a hidden camera, posing as a 15-year-old who had been impregnated by her 23-year-old boyfriend. Though California law requires abortion providers to report all cases of statutory rape to the police, a staff member at...

Abortion and Racism


John Piper has delivered a provocative message on abortion and race. A startling statistic: African-American women make up 13 percent of the female population, but account for 36 percent of abortions. Latino-American women, who also make up only 13 percent of the female population, account for 20 percent of abortions. If you care about the unborn and/or racial equality, we strongly commend this...

Nick Cannon: Can I Live


Brett and I rarely listen to rap music, but this music video by actor/artist Nick Cannon is a good example of an artistic medium being used to send a powerful message of life. In fact, it is so good that our church used it today as part of our Sanctity of Life Sunday service. Few eyes were dry when it was over. The video tells the heroic true story of Nick Cannon’s mother, Beck. It is 1979...
