“Why Rally, Why March?” (Illinois Family Spotlight #180)

In advance of the upcoming March for Life Chicago, Monte Larrick interviewed Eric Scheidler to talk about the big March, but looming in the background is the recent passage of a big anti-life law in Illinois, which prompts some to ask: why should we rally and march for life?

After that, they discuss activating more people for the pro-life movement, what the Pro-Life Action League does for the unborn, a potential legislative reversal of the parental notice of abortion in Illinois, how constituents could lobby their pro-abortion lawmakers against it, sex trafficking and parental notice, and is abortion coming to the public schools?… Continue Reading

2020 Democrats Want Unsafe, Unregulated, Do-It-Yourself Abortions

Written by Patrina Mosley

In today’s Democratic Party, anything goes—from applauding parents who encourage their children to reject their God-given identity and mutilate their young bodies, to bizarrely championing “abortion rights for trans-females,” to now happily supporting the dangerous do-it-yourself abortion method known as the abortion pill.

When the New York Times surveyed the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, all of them (unsurprisingly) vowed to defend abortion. However, when asked if they were in favor of lifting the restrictions on abortion pills and making them available over-the-counter (OTC), many of the candidates were unwilling to take a public position.… Continue Reading

Christianity Today’s Call for Trump’s Removal

Written by Laurie Higgins

Mark Galli, editor-in-chief of the former evangelical flagship magazine Christianity Today (CT) wrote a stunning editorial calling for President Trump’s removal from office via either impeachment or the next election. While acknowledging that “Democrats have had it out for him from day one, and therefore nearly everything they do is under a cloud of partisan suspicion,” Galli remarkably asserts that the case for Trump’s removal by hook or crook is indisputable:

But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents.

Should Politicians in the Wealthy West Promote Abortion in Poor Countries to Curtail Climate Change?

Written by Vijay Jayaraj

Some issues transcend partisan politics. This is one of them.

In a special debate on climate change hosted by CNN in September, United States presidential candidate U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) suggested using taxpayer money to fund abortion in poor countries. He believes doing so would help fight climate change.

In the debate, an audience member said, “Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth….… Continue Reading

If You Value Human Life, You Must Vote For Donald Trump

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

In this election season, one thing becomes more evident every day. If you value human life, you have no choice but to vote for Donald Trump.

“How can you say that,” you shout. “How can anyone claim that only one man or one party stands for human life and the dignity of the human being?

There is a one-word answer: Abortion.

Oh, I can hear the chorus of malcontents. “You conservatives are so myopic.… Continue Reading

“We Can Do More in This Fight Against Abortion” (Illinois Family Spotlight #171)

Pastor Cory Musgrave joined Monte Larrick on this edition of Illinois Family Spotlight to discuss his invocation on the Illinois House floor earlier this year.

State Rep. Darren Bailey invited Pastor Musgrave to open the Illinois House in prayer, and Pastor Musgrave took the opportunity to ask God to forgive us for the recent passage of a radical abortion expansion bill that will result in even more innocent bloodshed.

He also answers questions about why he is running for Illinois State Representative in the 109th district (current State Rep.… Continue Reading

Interracial Violence

Written by Laurie Higgins

Parroting academicians in now-sullied Ivory Towers, Democratic scolds running for president have been lecturing Americans on the pervasiveness of the white scourge of “systemic racism.” Elizabeth Warren said, “Two sets of rules: one for white families. And one for everybody else. That’s how a rigged system works.” Joe Biden calls racism “overwhelmingly a white man’s problem visited on people of color” and “systematic racism…. [has] been built into every aspect of our system.”… Continue Reading

“‘Money is The Root of All Evil’ Turns Out to Be True for Abortion” (Illinois Family Spotlight #165)

The indefatigable Monte Larrick recently interviewed Dr. Haywood Robinson at a 40 Days for Life pastors luncheon in Tinely Park. Dr. Haywood Robinson is a former abortionist who came to saving faith in Jesus Christ and was convicted by His Word. Dr. Robinson offers his thoughts on the Ulrich Klopfer discovery–the man who horded 2,246 aborted children in his garage since 2001–and whether or not there might be more abortionists doing similar heinous deeds.

They also chatted about Dr.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Former Planned Parenthood Director Promotes 40 Days for Life

Written by Benjamin Smith

While the Life issue doesn’t seem to be winning in the Illinois legislature, we know it’s winning elsewhere.  This episode of Spotlight is an interview Monte Larrick conducted with Sue Thayer, the Director of Outreach for 40 Days for Life. She describes the results of a 40 day vigil outside an abortion clinic, and she takes us inside an abortion worker’s mindset.

They also discussed the advent of webcam and chemical take-home abortions, and tips and details for attending a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil.… Continue Reading

Prostitution and Abortion: The Exploitation of Women and Children

Written by Abigail Moreno-Riano

Earlier this year, the state of New York legalized abortion up until birth, and the governor and abortion activists then proceeded to celebrate this loss of life as a joyous occasion. Now, another crisis of human dignity was narrowly averted after New York came close to passing the first ever complete decriminalization of prostitution.

While Nevada is the only other state to legalize forms of prostitution, New York’s bill is the most extensive bill that has ever been introduced, and as these authors noted, “would only turn mostly women and girls into ‘commodities to be bought and sold.’”… Continue Reading
