A Mississippi judge has denied a pro-life group’s request for a restraining order against police officers whom they claim have repeatedly harassed them when they protest outside the state’s sole abortion clinic.
Judge Carlton Reeves of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi Jackson Division, denied the Life Legal Defense Foundation’s request for an injunction on behalf of Pro-Life Mississippi and other protesters against the Jackson Police Department.
Dana Cody, attorney and executive director of the foundation, told The Christian Post that she believes the rejection of the injunction request was “wrongly decided.”

For three days, African-American protesters took to the streets in cities across the nation to draw attention to the disproportionately high number of African-American abortions.
They called it the Say So March – three days of marching and protesting and begging the nation to hear their cries that there are some scary implications behind the number of aborted Black babies in America.
Their shirts were flaunting a powerful message: “Stop funding racism from abortion.”

Excerpted from “Churches forced to cover abortion file federal complaint against Calif. agency,” Alliance Defending Freedom news release, October 09, 2014 – Life Legal Defense Foundation and Alliance Defending Freedom filed a formal complaint Thursday with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services over the California Department of Managed Health Care’s decision to force all employers, including churches, to pay for elective abortions in their health insurance plans. LLDF and ADF represent seven California churches that object to offering their employees insurance plans covering elective abortions and allege that DMHC’s coercion of abortion coverage violates federal law.

NASHVILLE (BP) — A rise in the single population and the emergence of employers paying for female workers to freeze their eggs may indicate that America has wandered further from biblical sexual morality.
“The sexual revolution is the governing principle of our time,” Andrew Walker, director of policy studies for Southern Baptists’ Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, told Baptist Press. The refusal of many sexually active people to marry and bear children indicates that “ultimately it’s the god of eros that’s reigning today.”
The population of Americans over 16 who are single has eclipsed 50 percent for the first time since the government began compiling such statistics in 1976, Bloomberg reported. That includes 30.4 percent of American adults who have never married and 19.8 percent who are divorced, separated or widowed.
Meanwhile, Facebook and Apple have announced they will pay for female employees to freeze their eggs — a move The New York Times said “could be seen as paying women to put off childbearing.”

Ruth Graham reports that some of the faculty at Wheaton College have problems with the college’s opposition to Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate. Obamacare requires Christian schools like Wheaton to provide insurance coverage for abortifacient drugs. Wheaton has sued the government (like many other institutions in their position) to get relief from Obamacare’s infringement upon religious liberty. Nevertheless, Graham reports that some of the faculty are opposed to the lawsuit. She writes: …
