SPOTLIGHT: A Tribute to A Christian Warrior

Written by Benjamin Smith

A hero on the front lines of the abortion war has passed on. Joseph Scheidler, the founder and national director of the Pro-Life Action League, has died at the age of 93. Mr. Scheidler’s impact on the battle for the life of unborn generations is incalculable. Besides his personal influence on pastors and other leaders, Mr. Scheidler was a street warrior, a relentlessly active presence at hundreds of protests and demonstrations at Chicago area abortion mills.… Continue Reading

Democrats’ Rule: Bow Before Them or Burn

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

The year 2021 is hardly out of diapers, and the words of the Old Testament prophet echo through our streets:

“Woe to those who draw iniquity with the cords of falsehood … who call evil good and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight …  Woe unto those who take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!”

SPOTLIGHT: The Only Person the Pro-Life Movement Needs is Jesus Christ

Written by David E. Smith

Ann Scheidler has a better grasp on the religious nature of the pro-life movement than most activists and supporters. Currently serving as vice president of Chicago-based Pro-Life Action League, Ann knows that embracing the gospel of Jesus Christ, Him crucified and resurrected, is the only way we will see an end to abortion. On this edition of Spotlight, she and Monte Larrick discuss the future of the Hyde Amendment and the significant challenges facing the pro-life movement, especially as the radically pro-abortion Biden-Harris administration prepares to take office.… Continue Reading

Step Aside AOC, There’s a New Youngest Member in the U.S. House

Written by Jenna Smith

Over the past several weeks, millions of Americans took part in the 2020 General Election which determines our president for the next four years. During this election cycle, citizens voted for candidates for Congress, state legislatures and various other local offices. In the U.S. House of Representatives, notable (and extremist) Congress-critters were re-elected to their seats, such as Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Eric Swallwell (D-CA), and Sandy “AOC” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Yes, Alexandria Occasional Cortex (hat tip Andrew Klavan) easily won re-election in her overwhelmingly left-leaning district in New York City.… Continue Reading

Trump’s High Pro-Life Priority

Written by Molly Carman

Soon after his release from Walter Reed Military Hospital where he received treatment for the coronavirus, President Donald Trump prioritized communicating the importance of pro-life legislation. Yesterday, President Trump posted a series of tweets concerning his pro-life convictions by reiterating his stance on the abortion issue and drawing attention to Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s position.

Trump’s first tweet drew attention to comments made by Joe Biden during a town hall meeting last night in Miami, Florida.… Continue Reading

Veggie Tales Creator Phil Vischer is Woke

Written by Laurie Higgins

Christian creator of the well-known children’s video series Veggie Tales, Phil Vischer, is woke, folks. Recently, in some tweets, Vischer appears to be defending voting for the corrupt influence-peddler Joe Biden who embraces all sorts of policy positions that oppose biblical truth.

Biden vigorously supports the Equality Act, which will lead to the oppression of theologically orthodox Christians. Biden enthusiastically affirms the legal redefinition of marriage to include homoerotic unions.… Continue Reading

‘Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden’ is a Monumental Ethical Failure

Written by Dr. Calvin Beisner

In my years as a seminary professor of ethics (Knox Theological Seminary, 2000–2008), I saw few things more sinister and devious than the seemingly innocuous statement, “a biblically shaped commitment to the sanctity of human life compels us to a consistent ethic of life that affirms the sanctity of human life from beginning to end.”

That’s not because life isn’t sacred from beginning to end, but because those who use it do so consistently to hide serious ethical confusion.… Continue Reading

Church Leaders Sell Their Souls to the Democratic Party

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Over the past couple of months, while the world has been distracted by all-things-COVID-19, a very important bit of news slipped under our radar and went virtually unnoticed. The contemporary church sold its soul to the Devil for a pot of political porridge.

Consider the evidence.

Last week “pro-life” evangelicals across the land started stumbling over themselves to endorse a political party and a candidate who is openly against life and against evangelicals.… Continue Reading

Mary Edly Allen Believes That Protecting Babies is Not Her Job

Written by Anna T. of Lake Zurich, Illinois

When I was invited to meet my local state legislator, State Representative Mary Edly-Allen (D-Libertyville), I never  imagined that a woman, a former teacher, and a mother of four could hold such callous views of precious babies almost born. Rep. Edly-Allen laughed when she was confronted with the reality that abortion dismembers even viable babies in Illinois at  taxpayers’ expense. She stated it “wasn’t her job” as an elected leader to protect babies.… Continue Reading
