With Abortion and Socialism, Democrats Are Peddling Slavery Again

Written by Trevor Thomas

In 1860, with the election of Abraham Lincoln as U.S. President, the newly-formed Republican Party controlled the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, and presidency. As was the case with most every state in what would become the Confederacy, my home state of Georgia cited slavery, republicans, and the election of Lincoln as its reasons for seceding:

A brief history of the rise, progress, and policy of anti-slavery and the political organization into whose hands the administration of the federal government has been committed [the republicans] will fully justify the pronounced verdict of the people of Georgia [who voted to secede].

Urgent Abortion ACTION Alert

Written by David E. Smith

Yesterday afternoon, the Illinois House Democrat Caucus met for 2-3 hours to discuss, among other things, the grotesquely misnamed “Reproductive Health Act.” If passed into law, this legislation would dramatically expand abortion–including Medicaid abortions–and usurp parental rights. We expect that the original proposal will be amended and a new (shell) bill number assigned.

Personal PAC, Planned Parenthood of Illinois, the ACLU of Illinois, along with State Representatives Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago), Sara Feigenholtz (D-Chicago) and Robyn Gabel (D-Evanston) are pushing hard to revive this deadly measure before they adjourn for the summer on May 31st.… Continue Reading

Democrats Unhinged Over Alabama’s Abortion Bill

Written by David Limbaugh

Alabama’s mostly Republican lawmakers and governor passed a strong abortion ban this week, and liberals are fit to be tied.

“Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, a bill that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the legislature,” said Gov. Kay Ivey. “To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God.”

In today’s secular culture, the governor’s invocation of God is almost as bold as signing the bill into law.… Continue Reading

The Hollywood Left Hates Alabama

Written by L. Brent Bozell III

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill on May 14 protecting unborn babies from the slaughter of abortion. The vote wasn’t close in the state legislature: 74-3 in the House, 25-6 in the Senate.

One more state has come to its senses.

There’s a wave of pro-life bills being passed in the Southern states. First came the “heartbeat” bills stopping abortions after a baby’s heartbeat can be detected (around six weeks).… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Pastor Ceasar LeFlore Talks Pro-Life Activism

Written by David E. Smith

Monte Larrick and David Smith welcome Rev. Ceasar LeFlore, one of the founders of the Southland Coalition for Life, to this edition of Spotlight. Rev. LeFlore shares the genesis story of the Coalition and outlines three key ways they are taking a stand in the south suburbs against Planned Parenthood’s racist agenda of death.

After the break, Pastor LeFlore discusses the importance of serious prayer as well as the need for spiritual awakening in our land, revival in the church, renewed respect for the sanctity of human life, and the faith to believe that God can bring about a miraculous transformation – even in a state as depraved as Illinois.… Continue Reading

Civilized Man Will Soon Revile Abortion as it Does Slavery

Written by Peter Heck

One of the most remarkable stories you’ll read is that of John Newton, author of the globally famous song Amazing Grace.  Newton was a slave ship captain who repented of his sins, became a minister, and whose personal testimonies of the horrors of the slave trade were used effectively by the great William Wilberforce to prosecute the practice before Parliament.

But here’s what few people realize about Newton’s life: his conversion to Christ did not lead to his immediate deliverance from the life of a slave trader. … Continue Reading

Why is Any Christian Surprised by Buttigieg’s Depraved Abortion Comments?

Written by Peter Heck

I’ve been surprised at the number of Christians who appear stunned that Mayor Pete Buttigieg made startlingly depraved remarks regarding the intentional murder of full-term babies in their mothers’ wombs.

If you missed it, it happened on Morning Joe when co-host Willie Geist explained that while religious conservatives were intrigued by Buttigieg, they could not get past his support for the heinous act of third-term abortion.  In response, Mayor Pete put together a word salad of heartlessness:

The way I explain this and it’s something that I think any pro-choice candidate from a conservative state faces, and that is I respect and understand where others are coming from.

SPOTLIGHT: Illinois’ Abortion Holocaust

Written by Benjamin Smith

This week’s Spotlight features Laurie Higgins, cultural affairs writer for IFI. Laurie was a recent guest of Stephanie Trussell and co-hosts Carol Davis, Jan Shaw on the Stephanie Trussell Show on 890 WLS. In highlights from the program, Laurie, Stephanie, and Carol discuss Teri Paulson’s article on the IFA website that compares the abortion holocaust to the Nazi Holocaust and the resulting house joint resolution, HJR 55 which condemns the so-called “hate speech” of IFA and, by extension, IFI.… Continue Reading

Truth and Love or Hate?

Written by Rev. Calvin Lindstrom

I am a pastor and board member of Illinois Family Action (IFA). I am happy to serve with IFA because I believe that Christian principles have an application for politics and society. Man’s main problem is not political. All men and women enter the world as sinners and need a Savior and salvation. The main thrust of God’s Word is to show the only way of salvation that is found in Jesus Christ, but God’s Word also gives guidance and direction to families and civil governments.… Continue Reading

Do Democrat Politicians Prefer Dead Babies?

Written by Abigail Ruth

There has been a significant amount of howling among Democrats and even some Republicans since IFA posted an article written by Teri Paulson last week that had to be retitled, “Why is Legalized Abortion Called a Holocaust?” Briefly,  Illinois Family was accused of “hate speech,” “inappropriate behavior,” “trivializing the memory of Holocaust victims,” and “promoting violence,” to name a few.

No one who complained actually addressed the core issue of whether or not there really is a moral difference between killing people based on their ethnicity (e.g., Jewish) versus killing people based on their imperfections or  inconvenience to others.… Continue Reading
