Michael Bowman is a staunch advocate against the practice of abortion. Like millions of other Americans, he believes that each life is precious and made in the image of God. So, citing his constitutional right to religious freedom, he is taking a stand and refusing to pay his taxes until the federal government ceases to fund abortion procedures.
But this isn’t anything new for Bowman — the 53-year-old engineer has refused to file a tax return or pay taxes since 1999.
“I’m not a tax protester. I love my country,” he told the Oregonian. “I have a duty to my country. I have a duty to my conscience.”
The IRS claims Bowman owes over $350,000 in unpaid taxes. So, when they started taking money out of his account, Bowman came up with a cunning plan: he promptly cashed his paychecks and left just a small amount in his account. That way, tax officials couldn’t get their hands on his money… more
Court Rules Ohio Taxpayers Must Fund Planned Parenthood
The state of Indiana has adopted a new law that essentially grants personhood to unborn children.
Relevant Magazine reports that Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has signed a bill into law that allows suspects to be charged with murder if they harm a pregnant woman who then loses her unborn child.
Pro-life supporters are championing this bill, as it acknowledges the personhood of unborn children. The law, however, does not apply to legally obtained abortions.
The law also brings to mind the Old Testament passage which says:… more
Kelly Clemente found out she was pregnant when she was 18. She had just finished her first semester of college, and up until then, described herself as your typical “all-American girl.”
She got good grades, was a member of a sorority, and ran on the track team.
When she saw that pregnancy test, “My life is over,” she thought.
“I was like, it doesn’t even matter. Nothing matters anymore,” Kelly told The Daily Signal.
Kelly, unlike most girls her age, was familiar with the implications of an unplanned pregnancy. In high school, she volunteered at HOPE in Northern Virginia, a nonprofit that creates gift baskets for mothers faced with an unplanned pregnancy.
Although she shared compassion for them, Kelly had bought into the stigmas about birth moms. “I’ll never be one of those women,” she thought.
But she was wrong. At 18, Kelly became an unplanned pregnancy statistic. “I was no better than these women that I was creating baskets for,” she said…. more
Retiring Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards has revealed that she rejected an offer from Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump that would have allowed the organization to retain its federal funding. Her refusal came down to one central condition: that the clinics stop performing abortions.

“The main issue, [Kushner] explained, was abortion,” wrote Richards in her new memoir, as quoted by PEOPLE. “If Planned Parenthood wanted to keep our federal funding, we would have to stop providing abortions. He described his ideal outcome: a national headline reading ‘Planned Parenthood Discontinues Abortion Services.’”
Richards went on to allege that Kushner and Trump were there “to deliver a political win” and claimed that she firmly rejected their offer because she believed it was “essentially being asked to barter away women’s rights for more money.”… more
What part of this baby looks like an it or thing? This is a human person and God says do not murder. Lord Jesus open their eyes and Lord go after planned parenthood! We cannot express how THIS SADDENS OUR HEARTS TO THE CORE!
Psalm 82:3 Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
What Has Abortion Done To Our Country and The People
This should not be surprising and it definitely did not happen overnight. We are seeing the consequences of selling sin and death for years. In 1973 I was 17 still in high school and found myself pregnant. I finished high school during my pregnancy and endured hardship. My mother did not take this …more
A rape survivor has shared a powerful message about how she resisted pressure from friends and family to abort her baby and decided to ‘choose life’ instead.
In a blog post for Live Action News, an American pro-life organisation, Kali explained that she was raped when she was thirteen.
She faced pressure from friends and family who told her: “You’re going to ruin your life. You’re making a mistake. It would be so much easier if you got an abortion”…. more
Can You Hear Me Lord
Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
How long have you prayed and it seemed like God was not answering? How long have you waited for a response? I have experienced this on many occasions and it seemed as if God was far, far away and I was a billion miles away going the other direction. The truth is God was there all the time with me. It did not seem or feel like it but He is and He was there. When we are faced with life challenging situations God tells us He will not leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5)… more
… I’m going to tell you a story about me, of which I’m not proud; but it is part of my life, and the Lord has used it to shape and mold me. It happened ten years before I met the Lord Jesus and was born again in 1983.
I sang in a band in Washington, D.C. for a living back then. I had been brought up in the synagogue, but my family was more secular in their beliefs; especially my mom. I had been dating a fellow whom I thought really cared about me. I got pregnant, and soon found out that the man I was dating, was not interested in a serious relationship. When he heard about my pregnancy, he told me to take care of it. Then I never saw him again.
I didn’t want to take care of it. I wanted to have the baby. I began searching for a home or somewhere I could go, where they would actually help me to have my baby and get me on my feet. I didn’t know about churches, being a Jew. I would wind up at counseling centers, but they were not able to actually help me. They just talked to me. One counselor told me to tell my parents. At that point, I knew that I needed to go to my mother and tell her…. more
What do you call it when Western elites attempt to foist abortion on native African cultures?
At the United Nations, two women were squaring off: one, a Danish abortion advocate, the other, African scientist Uju Ekeocha.
Their opinions expose the deep clash of civilizations across the globe: the culture of life versus the culture of death.
The Danish feminist admitted that she was “a bit provoked” by Uju’s claim that Western countries are once again engaging in colonialism. In her view, she announced, African women should be able to decide for themselves what to do with their bodies, including how many babies they want, and whether to have abortions.
Uju was quick to respond…. more
t’s the second largest crime industry in the world, next only to illegal drugs. And it depends upon the abortion industry to keep its illicit machinery functioning at maximum capacity.
We’re talking about human sex trafficking. Chances are you’ve encountered multiple victims without even knowing it. They are all around you. So are the perpetrators.
As are the “buyers” commonly known as johns.
Like any criminal activity, human trafficking is driven by money. According to Nita Belles with Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans, if a trafficker has three girls, he can make approximately $650,000 a year. Large events like the Super Bowl are magnets for traffickers to victimize youth and “recruit” others…. more
