Every year since 2007, I have made it a priority to take part in the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco. Even though I was in Washington last week for the March for Life, I would never think of missing the West Coast event.
With few exceptions, those who march for life in Washington, DC this Friday are people of faith, and see the pro-life movement not only as a response to Roe vs. Wade, but as a response to Jesus Christ. Their love for the children in the womb is a corollary of the command to love God and neighbor; their advocacy for the unborn is an aspect of their discipleship.
This year, the annual March for Life in Washington DC (Friday, Jan. 18) takes place on the first day of the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (Jan. 18-25).
In Our Tribalist Political Environment, How Can Pro-Life Conservatives Engage in Constructive Criticism?

We so often encourage our family and friends to vote and we feel good when they are motivated. But it is not unheard of to get to the election booth only to be met with unfamiliar names on the ballots, and with no idea what those strangers stand for. It is easy to do quick research on federal level candidates, who tend to get a lot more headlines, but local and state representatives are not as easy to come by. Many of us don’t even know who our state reps are. We are often even less prepared to vote for people running in city councils or school board races. Where do you go to find this information? How can we better prepare for the elections to avoid this problem?

Democrats Should be Asked if They Support Snipping Babies’ Necks in Abortions Like Kermit Gosnell Did
Whatever a person’s position on the divisive issue of abortion, one would think and hope that at the very least, people can agree that babies who are born alive, and are completely separated from their mother’s body, should be protected by law.
How do we “pray to end abortion?” There are very specific contours to this multi-faceted intention, and in this fifth part of this series, we continue to explore what they are.
