“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Historic vote to cut Planned Parenthood from federal funding
After the historic vote in the House of Representatives, National Right to Life Committee representative, Jessica Rodgers, stated "This landmark vote demonstrates that most House members now recognize Planned Parenthood is a hyper-political, under-regulated, out-of-control mega-marketer of abortion as a method of birth control."
It is important that this historic and right decision by the House of Represenatives is not reversed in the inevitable wave of pressure from Planned Parenthood that is sure to follow. Planned Parenthood, and their affiliates are bloated with years at the public trough and will not give up their dependency on government funding easily.
I encourage Americans people of good will to express their support to the 240 Members of Congress who voted to cut PP's funding and throw out of Congress next election the 185 Members who opposed cutting funding. Replace them with politicians who value and protect every human life.
