Wonderful LSN gala, comments on April 30 News
The LifeSiteNews 15th Anniversary gala in Washington was a wonderful evening enjoyed by a high powered group of 175 enthusiastic pro-life, pro-family leaders, activists and supporters. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the fellowship and listening to spunky keynote speaker Abby Johnson and several others who also briefly spoke during the evening. It truly was the LifeSiteNews family night that we hoped it would be. We’ll tell you more about it later.
The dramatic Pepsi turnaround is a good news story that sources have told us LifeSiteNews readers had a significant role in helping to bring about. We are also very pleased to report the Thomas More Society’s gloves off response to the Obama admin’s threat against Bishop Jenky. Thomas Brejcha and his legal team have been doing an amazing job over the years defending the freedom and conscience and religious rights of Americans.
Ok President Obama, what are you going to do now about Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng seeking asylum in the US embassy in Beijing? Will the abortion president hand Cheng over for more brutality and even possible death because he opposes China’s ruthless one-child policy or will the president of the United States boldly act to defend freedom - as he should?
And then there is Canada’s pathetic, frightened “Conservative” government gradually sliding into the pro-abortion camp as it seems utterly incapable of taking a principled stance on this human rights issue that dwarfs all others in the nation. Their rigid see no evil, hear no evil approach while having no legal restrictions on abortion is one of the saddest in the entire free world.
