Evangelicals Launch Effort to ‘Reduce Abortions,’ Float Contraceptive Advocacy

By Kathleen Gilbert WASHINGTON, D.C., May 31, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The National Association of Evangelicals has issued a new resolution on abortion advocacy that calls for pursuing “common ground” towards reducing the abortion rate in America, and included contraception as among possible means of achieving that goal. The “common ground” talking point is often heard from the likes of pro-abortion giants such as President Obama, who famously lectured University of Notre Dame graduates on using “fair-minded words” and not “demonizing” proponents of the legalized killing of unborn children. The leader of the new initiative nonetheless told LifeSiteNews.com that the statements were […]

Commentary by Matthew Cullinan Hoffman   May 31, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The death of Gary Coleman has elicited reactions of surprise and sadness from Americans who had come to know and love the actor through his role on the popular situation comedy Diff'rent Strokes during the late 70s and early 80s.   However, what is not being discussed in the mainstream media, what is being assiduously avoided, are the obvious questions: is it certain how Coleman sustained his deadly head injury, and why did his wife “pull the plug” on her husband only hours after he was put on life support, and only […]

US staff were off for the Memorial Day holiday, two key staff (Washington and Rome) are moving residences today and tomorrow, our assistant editor is on a week's holiday and others were not available for a variety of special reasons. For the most part, it has been John-Henry Westen and myself running LifeSiteNews today, just like the beginning years – but with vastly more to do now. Whew! On top of that, our fundraising campaign launch email went weird on us and so, my apologies to our many subscribers, […]
