The Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Hobby Lobby had nothing to do with the rights or wrongs of contraceptives. The morality of abortion and abortifacient drugs was not the issue. Neither was the scientific debate about how emergency contraceptives prevent pregnancy. The Supreme Court came down in support of Hobby Lobby, Conestoga, and Mandel because it concluded they were protected under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed unanimously by the House, 97-3 by the Senate, and signed into law by President Clinton in 1993. The Greens could be mistaken in their beliefs about emergency contraceptives and still have the legal right not to be forced to violate their consciences and give up their religious liberty.

“An Unrelated Gestational Carrier.” The Real Handmaid’s Tale

July 9, 2014 | Author:

I would encourage business owners and physicians who are members of these organizations to get involved. Are your dues being used to support the Wild West of industrial reproductive technology? Are you writing checks that hire lobbyists who work in your name to continue this attack on the human rights of women and babies?

Demand that your professional organizations follow legislative goals that support human dignity, rather than exploit and degrade whole classes of people.

Margaret Atwood wrote a gripping allegorical novel describing the use of women as breeders in a world that was controlled by what she evidently saw as the great satan of her time: Supporters of “traditional values.”

In our time the real Handmaid’s Tale is being promoted by the media and lived out by elites who don’t want to go through having children the old way and homosexuals who want to pretend that their unions are not sterile. The promotion of this clear-cut violation of the human rights of women and babies by commercialized medicine on a mass and international scale is being carried out by a media that focuses on insipid nonsense about “love” and “the right to a child” when, in fact, neither of these things exist in this situation.

It is not love to exploit other human beings for your own selfish ends. A more accurate word for that might be narcissism, with perhaps a dose of sociopathy dropped on top of it. And, just for the record, children are people. No one has a “right” to a child.

Planned Parenthood CEO’s Husband Also Had a Very Bad Day in Court

July 9, 2014 | Author:

threesome

Most everyone knows by now the Supreme Court ruled in favor of religious freedom and against the Obama administration on Monday in its Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood decisions.

This was a stunning rebuke against not only President Obama but also pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, whose office wrote the rules attempting to force employers with religious convictions to pay for abortion-inducing drugs. The contraception mandate was never passed by Congress.

I love this headline. Even if factually incorrect, it is accurate in the sense that Planned Parenthood stood to gain financially by the mandate and lost in the Hobby Lobby decision as well…

headline

 “Our opponents think they have momentum on their side,” wrote Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards in a fundraising email on Monday, which was for once a true statement. When you consider the buffer zone and Hobby Lobby decisions, the vast number of abortion clinics closing, the horrific Gosnell scandal, the public opinion polls, the tsunami of pro-life laws being passed, and the 2014 political landscape, we do appear to have a bit of momentum.

Meanwhile, the other Supreme Court decision handed down yesterday was a major slam against the company for whom Richards’ husband Kirk Adams (pictured above) works. Adams is the International Executive Vice President of the Service Employees International Union, heading up its North America healthcare division.

The Gospel Heals Families – Woman’s Worries Are Prayed Away

July 9, 2014 | Author:

gospelforasiaJyoti spent her time caring for her two children and trying to ensure her family was run well, while her husband labored in short-term jobs to provide for them. But when the summer came and her husband did not get any jobs, the worries of each day became nearly unbearable.

Jyoti worried relentlessly about how her family would survive. Eventually, the stress was more than her body could handle, and she became very sick.

During this time, Vimla, a Gospel for Asia Women’s Fellowship leader, and other women from the fellowship came to Jyoti’s village. They met Jyoti and shared the Good News of Jesus with her, helping her to see how much Jesus cares for her. As Jyoti listened, she began to feel that He could deliver her from these problems.

Feminists vs Population Controllers

July 8, 2014 | Author:

On and off the bandwagon, feminists find out that they undermined their own existence.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I think of a militant ‘feminist’ I tend to think of someone who sees too many children as getting in the way of a woman’s success in the workplace and generally in life.  While this might be true, even militant feminists do not think that women should be forced or encouraged not to have children if they should happen to want them. Interestingly, because international feminist groups naturally support the autonomy of women, they now find themselves in opposition to the population control advocates they have previously partnered with in support of widespread abortion and birth control rights.

The clash became apparent during the inaugural meeting of a new United Nations body that met for the first time last month to discuss universal development goals and air pollution, among other agenda items.  For many, the solution to environmental woes is still the continued reduction of fertility rates, despite them having fallen to below replacement rate all over the world.  Some, such as controversial Australian ethics professor Peter Singer, have even suggested that a woman’s desire to have children could be forcibly overridden to address environmental problems.

The Growth of Homeschooling

July 8, 2014 | Author:

homeschool3The News Story – Common Core upsets homeschooling parents

Recent repeal of the Common Core educational standards in Oklahoma was largely backed by support from homeschool advocates.  An ABCNews article explains how the Common Core requires standardised testing in math and English, aimed to better prepare students for college and future careers.  While homeschool and private school curriculum do not need to abide by the Common Core standards, such standards will nonetheless influence the feasibility of using different kinds and sources of instruction and learning.

Home-school advocates expressed concern, and in particular, some “home-schoolers fear that as textbook publishers incorporate the standards, it will lead to a smaller number of non-Common Core based-textbooks.”  Additionally, many worry that “the ACT and the College Board, which owns the SAT, are moving toward aligning with the standards…[which] would leave home-schooling parents no choice other than to follow the standards if they want their kids to do well on the college entrance exams.”

Oklahoma homeschool advocates have currently won the battle to freely educate their children; not all home-school families are so lucky. But recent research indicates that this educational trend is still on the rise, in spite of such efforts to quash the very reasons that parents choose to homeschool.

Why Hobby Lobby is not about women’s health

July 8, 2014 | Author:

hobby lobby

The Supreme Court voted 5-4 early this week that the closely-held private companies Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties are not required to provide certain forms of contraception to their employees—specifically, those that the companies’ owners believe act as abortifacients.

The White House—and media sources—immediately responded to the Court’s ruling by decrying that it “jeopardizes” women’s health. Sandra Fluke at the Washington Post opined about something she called the “current reproductive rights environment,” arguing, “Opponents of reproductive rights are trying to limit access to comprehensive women’s health care from all directions.”

Amy Davidson at The New Yorker wrote that in this case, “Women’s health is treated as something troublesome—less like other kinds of health care, which a company should be asked to pay for, than as a burden for those who have to contemplate it.” President Obama’s press secretary announced that the President would work with Congress to ensure that the women employed at these companies “have the same coverage of vital health services as everyone else.”

Let’s ignore, for the moment, the fact that our highest Court is now ruling on such extremely private and morally charged issues as birth control. And let’s put aside the weirdness that is our health system, in which insurance is somehow supposed to be involved in your decisions about whether or not to have a baby.

Stop the War on Boys in Classrooms – Homeschool

July 7, 2014 | Author:

Great on many points but we beg to differ on many.

Step one: Homeschool

Boys have little patience for wasting their lives putting in their time and working counter-intuitively to their calling and purpose. Schools are the factory of feminism. Boys who don’t sit well with this are normal. No wonder they are treated like defective girls.  (more…)

Over 60 Nigerian Girls Escape Boko Haram Captors

July 7, 2014 | Author:

nigeria-girls

(Photo: REUTERS/Erik De Castro) Students from an all-girls Catholic school, St Scholastica’s College, wear masks depicting kidnapped African school girls in Manila, June 27, 2014. More than 1,000 girls took part in the protest outside their campus aimed at voicing outrage over the kidnapping of more than 200 girls from a school in northeast Nigeria in April by Boko Haram militants, a school official said.

More than 60 girls and women kidnapped by armed men from Nigeria’s Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram a fortnight ago have managed to escape, officials said. However, over 200 other girls who were abducted separately about two months ago are still captive.

A local official from the Chibok area of the northeast state of Borno told The Associated Press Monday that he can confirm that the women and girls escaped Thursday and Friday. He said he had sent his representatives to talk to some of the girls.

The victims were kidnapped during a raid on Kummabza village in the Damboa district of Borno state on June 22, as the terror group supposedly sought to pressure the government to secure the release of its militant fighters.

“Over 60 women were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists,” a local vigilante leader, Aji Khalil, told Agence France Presse earlier. “They were forcefully taken away by Boko Haram terrorists. Four villagers who tried to escape were shot dead on the spot.”

Another vigilante leader, identified as Abbas Gava, in Borno state’s capital of Maiduguri told the AP on Sunday that he heard from other vigilantes in the area that 63 women and girls managed to escape while the armed men from Boko Haram were attacking military barracks and police headquarters in Damboa.

Family Meals: Why Eating Together as a Family Is So Important

July 7, 2014 | Author:

Around-the-Table-Family-Meals-JPEG

The research is shared often: kids who eat family meals together are more likely to do well in school, make healthier choices, feel more connected with their families, sense that their parents are proud of them, and have a more positive outlook on life.

In their book The Hour that Matters Most, Les and Leslie Parrot state:

Study after study shows that the more often families eat together, the less likely the kids are to smoke, drink, do drugs, get depressed, develop eating disorders, become overweight, and consider suicide.

Those are the studies, but here is the reality: eating together as a family is challenging!

Between busy schedules, cranky kids, and exhausted families, flipping on the TV or feeding the kids before sitting down as a couple is often easier than establishing a regular time of eating together as a family.

In our home, my husband’s work schedule changes from week to week, and we have a new baby.  As a result, regular mealtimes are a challenge for us!

Is Feminine Modesty About Sex?

July 5, 2014 | Author:

hangers

So long as fashion trends exist, Christian women are called to be self-consciously aware of the changing forms of sexually promiscuous dress. Clothes must be chosen, not merely on the basis of whether other women will find an outfit “cute,” but whether the message the clothing sends to men is sexually restrained. None of this is easy or convenient, but obedience to God is never easy or convenient.

For men to show God-glorifying self-control over their eyes and for women to show God-glorifying self-control over their wardrobes, both require obedience to God with greater motivations. Pure hearts are behind pure eyes (Matthew 5:28) just as internal modesty is behind external modesty (1 Peter 3:1–6).

In the end, the ultimate question is this: What do we treasure?
