Nurturing Intimacy in a Facebook Generation
Our generation is in danger of forgetting the depth and quality of relationships, all in the name of instant communication, "efficiency," and networking. While the rest of the world texts, pokes, relates in thirty second intervals let's not go along with it. Let's live for something better.

Acting against abortion - the things we say
We can all do something to prevent the killing of innocent unborn children, today, right now. Even if we are too busy to participate actively in the pro-life movement, we can still do a lot in our daily lives and make an enormous difference.

Court Rules Schools Do Not Need Parents' Consent
Another judge rules against parents being able to choose what their children will be exposed to in the public schools by ruling that "the Consititution allows public schools the freedom to teach material that is 'reasonably' geared to forming good citizens." According to Judge Wolf, "good citizens must accept homosexuality in the name of diversity."

Trials over partial-birth abortion ban continue
The three trials over the lawsuits filed to overturn the national ban on partial-birth abortions continued on Tuesday with a doctor testifying for abortion advocates claiming partial-birth abortions are needed because it allows for a proper burial for unborn children after they are killed. Amos Grunebaum, a specialist in maternal fetal medicine at New York Hospital, said women choose partial-birth abortions in part because they grieve over the loss of an unborn child and want to offer their baby a proper funeral. [Ironically enough, these pro-abortionists seem to recognize these unborn children as human despite all their protests to the contrary. Not appropriate for very young readers.]

What Abortionists Won't Tell You
With a trembling hand, I raised the stick of the pregnancy test and read the results. Positive. A new life was growing in the young womb--a life that only I seemed to want.  Seeing my eyes grow moist, she knew the result without being told. She hung her head in silence. Putting my arm around her, I asked simply, "What are you going to do?"  I knew the answer already, but I prayed for a change of heart. She was going to abort the 10-week-old growing baby.

Outrage as Church of England Backs Calls for Severely Disabled Babies to Be Killed at Birth
The future of Western Civilization may come down to our view on life. We know that all those who hate God, love death. Conversely, those who love God, will love life. By now, most of us realise that the battle between life and death is hitting very close to home

Revival of premature babies disputed
Premature babies born after only 22 weeks in the womb or earlier should not be routinely resuscitated, a British report on the care of sick and disabled babies has concluded. [From a LAF reader: "Upon a far more personal level, I've been appalled at this downward spiral into the abyss of wickedness for, as a survivor of premature birth (arriving into the world at 26 weeks) with every condition under the sun--under-developed lungs and respiratory system, under-developed circulatory system, jaundice, a skull the experts did not believe would expand to meet my growth needs and so on--I am keenly aware of the value of saving just one of these prescious jewels. I was not even given 24 hours, but prayers went up and I clung on. I was not given a week, but prayers continued to be offered, and I clung on. I was thought to be doomed to a life of poor quality in some sheltered workshop, but God Himself has gifted me with a mind sharp as any two-edged sword, a heart to think, feel, love and worship, and a soul to give up to my creator in repentance for my sins. How dare any experts claim to know the measure of one's life, regardless of the complications? There are those in professional circles who claim that the mere fact I am vision impaired upholds their deadly argument - that such a life would be unbearable and an ecconomic burden upon society etc. Share this horror with everyone you know and fight for the right of all human beings to live!"]

High birth rate not enough, Costello says
Australia's soaring birth rate was still not high enough to replace the ageing population, Treasurer Peter Costello said.

Should Christians Observe Halloween?
Halloween is not just a time for cornstalks, pumpkins, apples and cute costumes. There is much, much more. Before deciding to celebrate or not celebrate any holiday, it is important to understand the history of that holiday. [This is posted as a challenge to thoughtfully and prayerfully approach this issue -- not as a call for judgment. ;-) As a child, I participated in Halloween parties and trick-or-treating with my siblings. It wasn't until I was eleven that my parents began to study this issue seriously and decided to forego observing what we came to understand was a pagan holiday. All of us have a long way to go on the journey of sanctification. May we reach out with kindness to others on the road rather than condemning them for not being at the same mile marker, knowing that as we do unto others, we ask to have done unto us. ~ Mrs. Chancey]

Birth Controlled
Lately I've been doing a lot of reading about the ethics of birth control, family size, what the Bible has to say about children, and what the various positions on this are of people from different denominational and experiential backgrounds. This whole issue of Christians, birth control, and having a marriage that's open to children is being examined by people all over the internet.

Solebury School students play escort at Planned Parenthood abortion clinic
Community outrage is growing over a field trip to an abortion clinic that was sponsored by the Solebury School in New Hope. More than a dozen teenagers from the school were bused to the Planned Parenthood clinic in Warminster on Friday, Sept. 29, where they spent several hours inside the clinic, and even donned the vests worn by escorts who meet and accompany women coming for abortions. With a group of pro-life demonstrators staging a peaceful prayer service at the curb less than 20 feet away, it might have been a powerful lesson, except for one thing: The students were only allowed to hear one side of the story

Pregnancy in the Air Force
According to a story in SiaNews, Jill Metzger, a Major in the force, is indeed pregnant, and sought an abortion to deal with the problem. Previously, Metzger had apparently attempted to cover her absence from duty, with a story about being kidnapped. [Note from a LAF reader: "So this is where feminism has brought us? A woman who was serving in the front lines of combat in Afghanistan, committed adultery, got pregnant, then pretended to be kidnapped while getting an abortion. This is freedom for women? Why was this story not published in the main news?"]

Americans Now Have More TVs in Home Than Humans
The average American home now has more television sets than people. That threshold was crossed within the past two years, according to Nielsen Media Research. There are 2.73 TV sets in the typical home and 2.55 people, the researchers said. [Note: Does anyone find this news the least bit flabbergasting? Homes where the TV is on eight or more hours a day? Where people feel it necessary to have a TV on in every room so they can walk around and not miss their favorite shows? Parents that actually think it's a good thing to have children sitting in front of televisions in their own rooms, unsupervised? Chalk us up as old-fashioned, but we're frankly thrilled that the TV set is a servant that lives in an out-of-the-way place and is invited to be a part of the goings-on only on rare occasions. One person is quoted as saying that having so many TVs is "a matter of where your living takes place...". Does anyone catch the irony here? Living is not what you do in front of a TV set but what you accomplish when you are away from it!]

How the Feminists’ “War against Boys” Paved the Way for Islam
Judging from the rhetoric of many feminists, all the oppression in the world comes from Western men, who are oppressing both women and non-Western men. Muslim immigrants are “fellow victims” of this bias. At best, they may be patriarchal pigs, but no worse than Western men. Many Western universities have courses filled with hate against men that would be unthinkable the other way around. That’s why Scandinavian feminists don’t call for Scandinavian men to show a more traditional masculinity and protect them against aggression from Muslim men. [This is a very interesting viewpoint from a Norwegian writer who is amazed that feminists can promote immigration of the very people who really do believe women are inferior--as opposed to embracing the men who have stood up for womanhood for centuries, however imperfectly. Not for very young readers.]

Pro-life leader raps Bush stance on "morning-after" pill
An American pro-life leader has sharply criticized President George W. Bush for a statement implying support for over-the-counter sale of the "morning-after" pill should be legally available. [Lest we forget, LAF has reported for the past several years on Pres. Bush's continued support of abortion funding through Planned Parenthood and the UN population fund. He is no friend to pro-lifers, so this recent decision should surprise no one. That it does just shows too many Christians are asleep at their posts. "It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes..." (Ps. 118:9).]
