    The Family Planning Title Wave
    July 18, 2019

    Dr. Leana Wen may be pro-abortion – but apparently not pro-abortion enough for Planned Parenthood. Earlier this week, the successor to Cecile Richards was unceremoniously sacked by the organization’s board after a clandestine meeting. Why? Because Wen’s definition of health care includes a lot more than destroying babies. (continue reading...)

    'We Turned a Blind Eye When We Shouldn't Have'
    July 18, 2019

    It’s difficult not to be swept up by the horror stories of the Uyghurs, the Yazidis, the Rohingya, and so many other suffering faith groups represented at the State Department this week. But it’s important not to lose sight of another hurting community – the global Christians. Their nightmares are real, and – based on a shocking report – growing. (continue reading...)

    Do We Cry with Them?
    July 17, 2019

    It started in March, five years after the massacres. U.N. and Iraqi officials stood solemnly in a circle, looking at the grass where the first mass grave in Sinjar would be exhumed. Underneath were the bodies of Yazidis -- kidnapped children, women who'd been shackled as sex slaves, executed husbands and fathers and sons. (continue reading...)

    'I Tell My Story, Because It's the Best Weapon I Have'
    July 16, 2019

    "It never gets easier to tell your story. Each time you speak it, you relive it. When I tell someone about the checkpoint where the men raped me, or the feeling of Hajji Salman's whip across the blanket as I lay under it, or the darkening Mosul sky while I searched the neighborhood for some sign of help, I am transported back to those moments and all their terror." --Nadia Murad, Survivor (continue reading...)

    Washington's New Four-Letter Word: F-L-A-G
    July 16, 2019

    A lot of the residents in Mullis Senior Center survived Korea and Vietnam. Now they're facing a new enemy: political correctness. When the seniors found out that the Pledge of Allegiance had been banned, they fought back. If the board of directors at the Washington State facility wants to deprive them of the freedom they sacrificed for, they'll have to try harder. (continue reading...)

    Welcome to Mineral Wells, Population: Growing
    July 16, 2019

    Mineral Wells, Texas doesn't have an abortion clinic. And they'd like to keep it that way. Mayor Chris Perricone knows he can't control what's happening in New York or Illinois -- or even the rest of his state. But, with the city's help, he can control what happens in his community. And making Mineral Wells a place that welcomes life should be a part of that. (continue reading...)

    Pence the Center of Detention on U.S. Border
    July 15, 2019

    The crisis at our southern border isn't "manufactured," Vice President Mike Pence insisted. And he ought to know. America's second-in-command just flew back from a trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, where he saw first-hand the damage Democrats have done by fighting the funding for ICE (Immigrations and Customs Enforcement). "I knew we'd see a system that's overcrowded," he said. "...[but] that's why Congress has to act." (continue reading...)

    Pompeo Does a World of Good on Religious Liberty
    July 15, 2019

    You don't have to fly to China to find real skeptics of freedom. Turns out, there are plenty right here at home. They pop their heads up every time the Trump administration does something meaningful on religious liberty or human rights -- which, thanks to this president's priorities, means we hear from them, a lot. Sticking up for freedom used to be America's calling card. (continue reading...)

    Ending Abortion: The Sooners, The Better
    July 15, 2019

    Here's a headline you don't see every day: "Judge Lets Abortion Ban Stand." Fortunately for pro-lifers, Friday's news was full of hope for the unborn from the unlikeliest of places. First, the Ninth Circuit dealt a huge blow to Planned Parenthood by letting the president's family planning rule go into effect. Then, in the same 24 hours, an Oklahoma judge stunned the country by stepping aside and letting lawmakers do their job on life. (continue reading...)
