Christian children across the nation return to school next month. Those who are enrolled in public schools -- at a time when Common Core is tightening its grip -- will likely be faced with repeated attempts at anti-Christian indoctrination. Even more tragically, the majority of children in Christian schools and homeschools may never learn the essential truths they need to know in order to effectively advocate the Gospel of Life in an increasingly totalitarian and anti-life culture.

To resign ourselves to the inevitability of the slaughter of the innocent is to surrender to our enemy's stronghold.
Even in the midst of pro-abortion presidents and judges, our Constitution provides a strategy for ending the slaughter. A Constitutional Amendment for Life could be enacted without the involvement of our nation's executive or judicial branches.

Discipline with love. Boundaries with love. The answer, 'No!' with love.
"Since Laura's death, I have become much more bold....
How does Thanksgiving impact the decisions God's children make about protecting human life?
Could it be that an attitude of unthankfulness is the root of America's Abortion Holocaust?
Recently, a young couple was informed that their baby would die soon after birth. Their attitude of thanksgiving inspired hundreds of thousands of Christians, who joined them in celebrating the brief life of their son.
