The most common reason that people said they would continue to support Donald Trump, in spite of the warnings issued by Christian leaders like Philip Yancey and Max Lucado, was because ostensibly, Trump is anti-abortion.

Those who have studied the role of the Supreme Court in American life understand above all this November's election is about who will nominate and confirm the next Justices.

Growing up in a Christian home, and then becoming a Christian minister for 25 years, I'd been horrified by a lot of things, but my Christianity, as misguided as it was perhaps, was about God's love.

These are the types of pro-life Christians we desperately need in the wake of what happened in Orlando. These Christians help to create a world that honors and protects all lives one sensible gun law, one loving word, and one piece of cake at a time.

FDA Updates Abortion Pill Label Despite Political Games

Melissa S. Grant | Posted 04.13.2016 | Women
Melissa S. Grant

Will this label change make medication abortion more feasible in states facing medically unnecessary, politically motivated restrictions or will politicians with the goal of limiting abortion access just continue to find new ways to restrict access? Time will tell, but this new action from the Food and Drug Administration seems to be a step in the right direction.

The Donald has a point: if abortion ought to be illegal, why shouldn't the woman who get one be guilty of a crime? And why hasn't the pro-life movement advocated for punishing a woman who gets an abortion?

This entire "war" is designed to impose a Christian morality on all citizens. Non-religious employees of quasi-religious organizations have no rights, according to the religious soldiers. If religious conservatives had their way, a Christian morality about abortion would be imposed on all women.

Monica Bauer | Posted 03.31.2016 | Politics
Monica Bauer

Framing the argument as pro-life and pro-choice still misses the heart of it. Do we want a government enforcing something that is only called "murder" by some religions and not others, never mind the rights of atheists and agnostics? Do we want Sharia? Do we want the Morality Police?

I would like to thank Donald Trump. While his race to the White House requires the collapse of civil discourse and rewards breaking what had been seen to be the limits of polite speech, he has, at least, revealed a LIE long told by the anti-abortion/"pro-life" movement.

On 43rd Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, This Is What It Means To Be Pro-life

Rebekah Williams | Posted 01.22.2016 | Religion
Rebekah Williams

The current conversation surrounding abortion is, by its very foundation, futile. We define ourselves as either "pro-life" or "pro-choice," but never as "anti-life" or "anti-choice." The fact of the matter remains, no one is really anti either of these things.
