The “Imperative” Take-Aways from the Assure Banquet

We were blessed to be part of the very large audience at the Assure Women’sCenter banquet last night…and for several reasons. For instance, it was wonderful to again hear director Toni Clarke detail the effectiveness of Assure in helping women and families, dissuading women from committing abortion, winsomely sharing the gospel with clients, helping people…

To Abortion Workers: “Jesus Still Love the Little Children”

The Wednesday focus in Vital Signs “3 for 5 Prayer Campaign Against Planned Parenthood” is to “pray for spiritual conversion among Planned Parenthood employees and supporters.” Indeed, here is the sample prayer we offer: “Please, Lord Jesus, reveal to those who work with, promote, or otherwise support Planned Parenthood the organization’s inherent evils.  Give them a new…

Abortion Hurts…Even the Survivor

The harm performed on a preborn child by an abortionist is cruel, barbaric and, alas, lethal. But the harm doesn’t stop there. As we tell abortion clients when we sidewalk counsel outside an abortion clinic (giving them the facts about abortion that are denied them inside the building), the violent, remarkably unnatural act of abortion…

A Quick Get-Away to Art, History, and the Company of Good Friends

A Quick Get-Away to Art, History, and the Company of Good Friends How unusual and stimulating our last two days have been!

The Top 5 (April 27)

* “Conservatism’s ‘Three-Legged Stool’ Has No Legs Left” (John Daniel Davidson, Federalist) From the article — It’s hard to overstate how out-of-touch this way of thinking is, as if the past 15 years simply never happened, to say nothing of the past 50.

* “California’s Senate Democrats Reject Bill to Make Purchasing a Child for Sex a Felony” (Katy Grimes, California Globe)  From the article — As we explained at the time, human trafficking was defined as a “non-serious” crime because of Proposition 57 passed in 2016, which meant the act of human trafficking could no longer be considered a strike…

Why Not Do Only the “Pleasant” Ministries?

Our Monday started with our pro-life witness on the street outside Planned Parenthood, the unbelievably evil business that lies to women, exploits their fears and confusion, kills their preborn sons and daughters with high-powered vacuums and knives and poisons, and then guarantees its ongoing business by promoting to America’s youth the grossest and most perverse…

Ronald Reagan’s Simple Testimony

I was sitting in a room, and across from me, about ten feet away, was seated the then governor of California and soon-to-be president of the United States, Ronald Reagan.  I had the opportunity to ask him some questions.  I said, “Governor, I would like to ask you a very important spiritual question.  If something…
