Support the 'Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act'

I want to encourage you to contact your Representative and urge them to support passage of the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" (H.R. 36) sponsored by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.)and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn).This legislation is essential to stopping late abortion. It would also help stop so-called doctors, like the now imprisoned Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who are willing to allow babies be born alive to more easily kill them if the abortion doesn't work. Tragically, this problem goes way beyond Gosnell in Philadelphia.

Lila Rose’s undercover video in 2013 showed a doctor in the District of Columbia claiming “Let’s say you went into labor, the membranes ruptured, and you delivered before we got to the termination part of the procedure here, you know? Then we would do things – we would – we would not help it. We wouldn’t intubate.”

Medical experts have testified that unborn children can feel pain as early as 20 weeks after fertilization, which is about 4 and a half months. You can download FRC's pamphlet "Fetal Pain: Can Unborn Children Feel Pain in the Womb?"explaining more detail about the pain unborn children ... (more)

Abortion 2015: Caution, Diligence, and Faithfulness

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Canon and Culture on January 23, 2015. The theological basis for asserting personhood at conception has been articulated at great length. Given that one of the Enemy’s central delights is murder (John 8:44), the defense of human life is altogether fitting and proper for Christians at a time when, minimally, 2,700 unborn children lose their lives each day within America’s borders. The Bible teaches that all persons are created by ... (more)

What It Means to Be Evangelical

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Real Clear Religion on January 21, 2015. A number of thoughtful Evangelical commentators (captured here by my brave and faithful friend Owen Strachan) have responded pointedly to Elizabeth Dias's Time story, "Inside the Evangelical Fight Over Gay Marriage." They have demonstrated logically, theologically and philosophically why the movement to abandon Scripture's teaching on human sexuality in order to accommodate supposedly Evangelical ... (more)

President Obama: On Bowing to Kings

by Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison

Ken Blackwell is Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment and Bob Morrison is Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Christian Post on January 26, 2015. It was a stunning sight. President Obama was in London for a summit meeting in early 2009. He bowed low before King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. President Obama had apparently never learned that Americans do not bow and the American President, especially, should never bow to a King. Now, with the death of King Abdullah, President Obama has ... (more)
