Popular Atheist Says Aborting Babies With Disabilities Is Wise

In a disgusting and warped statement, Richard Dawkins, an evolutionary biologist, has stated that it is “immoral” to bring a child with Down’s Syndrome or other disabilities into the world. In 2014, Dawkins, in response to a woman saying she would be faced with “a real ethical dilemma” if she were to become pregnant with a child with Down Syndrome, tweeted, “Abort it and try again.” This comes after The American Humanist Association took back its humanist of the year award from Dawkins after he tweeted a comparison between trans people to Rachel Dolezal, the civil rights activist who posed as a black woman for years.

Planned Parenthood Sues To Overturn Ordinance That Calls Abortion Murder

A Lubbock, Texas ordinance that bans abortion and received overwhelming approval by voters is facing a court challenge.

Sealy Massingill, filed suit, claiming the city’s “Ordinance Outlawing Abortion” is a violation of the Fourteenth Amendment. The complaint came on the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court said it would take up a challenge to the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. In that case, Mississippi seeks to revive a Republican-backed state law that bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Read more about the lawsuit here.

May 20th – -James 4:8

James 4:8

The Bible makes clear that once we receive Jesus as our Savior, our salvation is secure. And although nothing can separate us from His love, sin breaks our precious fellowship with God. A fellowship that remains broken until we come before the Lord with confession and repentance. When we come to God with contrite hearts that truly seek to draw near to Him, He too will draw near to us. For God loves us beyond comprehension. And washing our hands of sin, and purifying our hearts and minds, paves the way for us to abide in the Lord. This in turn allows us, to enjoy a perfect fellowship with God, filled with peace, joy, and love.
