Dear Friends:

Occasionally it’s straightforward, as conservatives, to get discouraged. We’re not pleased with the recent Administration, the drift of our lifestyle, or what’s occurring in some of our churches. I fear we appear like the guy explained by P.G. Wodehouse: “He experienced the search of one particular who had drunk the cup of lifestyle and identified a lifeless beetle at the bottom.”

But there is nonetheless a good deal of very good information, largely in the states. Before this month, my FRC colleagues, Dr. David Prentice and Anna Higgins, J.D., testified ahead of the North Dakota legislature about crucial pro-lifestyle steps underneath thing to consider. Subsequently, North Dakota lawmakers handed five of six pending pro-lifestyle payments. Or contemplate this from our buddies at LifeNews and the Alliance Defending Liberty:

A recently accomplished U.S. Department of Health and Human Solutions investigation of New York’s Mt. Sinai Hospital has resulted in further plan and method modifications to ensure that health-related personnel are not pressured to participate in abortions. Alliance Defending Freedom lawyers symbolizing a Mt. Sinai nurse requested the HHS Place of work of Civil Rights investigation soon after the clinic compelled her to assist in an abortion in violation of her spiritual beliefs in 2009.

These victories are not complete and last, but they are true and, in their spheres, essential. We have to never drop sight of the truth that massive victories derive from modest kinds – and appropriate now, it’s at the state and nearby amount the place we have the best likelihood of making change.

On top of that, last time I checked, Jesus is still Lord, and “is the very same yesterday, today, and permanently.” That is long lasting good news we can constantly celebrate – and without having at any time locating a beetle in the cup.
