Trump’s Labor Dept. Moves to Protect Religious Freedom; Public Support Needed
President Trump’s Department of Labor has proposed a new federal rule that would protect an important aspect of religious freedom. But the rule is not yet finalized and needs public support to be implemented.
Under the rule, faith-based organizations that contract with the federal government to provide services would be able to “make employment decisions consistent with their sincerely held religious tenets and beliefs without fear of sanction by the federal government.”
Public comments are a critical part of the federal regulatory process, as every proposed rule must have a 30-day window for the public to express support, opposition, concerns or suggestions.

Thus, it’s very important that those who value religious freedom make their voice heard in support of this proposed rule before September 16. Click HERE to make your comment. Once you are on the website, click the green box to your right where it says submit a formal comment.  


A baby was saved Tuesday, August 13th at Preterm! Thank God and thanks to John Kness and Pastor Dale for their sidewalk witness!

Hello 40 Days for Life Supporters
Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, "Behold, we did not know this," does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will He not requite man according to his work?" ~Proverbs 24:11-12
More Saves at Preterm!
The reports of saves at Preterm continue to come in! There has been at least 2 more babies spared from abortion since my last email! PRAISE GOD for the dedicated pro-lifers praying at the abortion facilities in our communities throughout the year! There were saves at Preterm on Friday, 7/26, and Wednesday, 7/31, and on each occasion there were several pro-lifers praying and witnessing during the course of the day.

"It's A Matter of Life..."by Denver Sallee 

Our current 2019 death toll from mass shootings stands at an appalling 245. The collective outrage from our citizens, politicians, and media types is unceasing.  Yet each  day the body count from abortion is 3000 and the silence from the same segments of society is deafening. It seems the murder of children horrifies us except when they are very young and still in the womb. We cannot ignore mass murder in the womb and be shocked when it happens on our streets.
