AUSTIN, Texas — A chain of abortion facilities in Texas has offered free abortions to those affected by Hurricane Harvey, it says, to “help” pregnant mothers who wanted to terminate their pregnancy but could not do so because of the storm.

Whole Woman’s Health, which has locations in Austin, Fort Worth, San Antonio and McAllen, posted its offer to its website on Friday.

“To ensure our patients get the compassionate, quality abortion care they deserve, we’re providing no-cost abortions for those affected by Hurricane Harvey,” the organization wrote.

opinion: We wonder why these horrible storms are coming, why the northwest is on fire, why we are under judgment and more hurricanes are coming! WAKE UP church and speak UP! STOP MURDERING! Lord Jesus we repent for our wicked nation but we also pray they wake up. We are tired of them murdering our children Lord. Hear our cry O God, hear our hearts broken for killing innocent children for the sake of their sin, we all have sinned and Lord Jesus we thank you for coming and saving us from our sin. Please Lord Jesus cause them to STOP killing your children, In JESUS NAME AMEN!

Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

Matthew 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

Psalm 28:O Lord, I call to you. O my rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me. If you remain silent, I will be like those who go into the pit. 2 Hear my prayer for mercy when I call to you for help, when I lift my hands toward your most holy place. 3 Do not drag me away with wicked people, with troublemakers who speak of peace with their neighbors but have evil in their hearts. 4 Pay them back for what they have done, for their evil deeds. Pay them back for what their hands have done, and give them what they deserve. 5 The Lord will tear them down and never build them up again, because they never consider what he has done or what his hands have made.

Hurricane Harvey’s Men, Women, and Children


In crisis, strong men are no longer ‘toxic,’ women protect children, and children are innocent.

On Sunday, as images from Hurricane Harvey stunned the nation, one particular image stuck out for many Americans as indicative of the heroism of Texans in the face of disaster: a picture of a man in a baseball cap carefully carrying a woman through the water; the woman, in turn, holds close a baby curled up on her chest.

The picture struck a chord with many people because it seems so instinctively right: the woman protecting her child, the man protecting the woman, carrying them all through danger.

This is the vision of humanity that carries us through our darkest trials: men as protectors, women as guardians, children as innocents…. read more

Chaplains Answering the ‘God Questions’ After Hurricane Harvey


With Harvey still pouring rain over Texas, it’s hard to say how great the devastation will be—or how soon before residents get a break. But one thing’s for sure—the damage is widespread and overwhelming, affecting some of the state’s most popular cities.

“People are shocked. They’re full of fear,” said Jack Munday, international director of the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (RRT). “They’re concerned whether or not they’ll have a home to move back into. In some cases, they’ve left medications behind. In some cases, they’ve had to leave pets behind…. read more
