Obama Calls Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ a ‘Story of Freedom’ in State of Union Address

By Heather Clark WASHINGTON – In delivering his annual “State of the Union” address on Tuesday night, Barack Obama claimed that the recent proliferation of federal rulings regarding same-sex “marriage” has presented itself as a “story of freedom” throughout America. During the segment, Obama was speaking about unity among Americans despite their differences and the accomplishments that he believes he has seen during his presidency. “I still believe that we are one people. I still believe that together, we can do great things, even when the odds are long. I believe this because over and over in my six years in office, I have seen America at its best,” he said. “I’ve seen the hopeful faces of young graduates from New York to California; and our newest officers at West Point, Annapolis, Colorado Springs, and New London. I’ve mourned with grieving families in Tucson and Newtown; in Boston, West, Texas, and West Virginia.” “I’ve watched Americans beat back adversity from the Gulf Coast to the Great Plains; from Midwest assembly lines to the Mid-Atlantic seaboard,” Obama continued. “I’ve seen something like gay marriage go from a wedge issue used to drive us apart to a story of freedom across our country, a civil right now legal …read more Source:: Christian News Network       ...

Obama Administration Opposes Bill Banning Abortions After Five Months Gestation

By Heather Clark WASHINGTON – The Obama administration has expressed its opposition to a Congressional bill that would ban abortions after five months gestation, opining that it is an “assault on a woman’s right to choose.” H.R. 36 is known as the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and while some believe that the bill doesn’t go far enough as all abortion should be outlawed, the Obama administration says that the prohibition on abortions after 20 weeks is oppressive. “The administration strongly opposes H.R. 36, which would unacceptably restrict women’s health and reproductive rights and is an assault on a woman’s right to choose,” the White House Office of Management and Budget wrote in a memo on Tuesday. “Women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care, and government should not inject itself into decisions best made between a woman and her doctor.” The bill was introduced by Sen. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and has nearly 160 co-sponsors. It is set to go up for a vote in the House on Thursday—the same day marking 42 years since the ruling of Roe v. Wade. “here is substantial medical evidence that an unborn child is capable of experiencing …read more Source:: Christian News Network       ...

Woman Raped on a Business Trip Refuses to Abort Unborn Baby

By Heather Clark A woman from North Carolina who was raped on a business trip a year ago is sharing her story of how she and her husband refused abortion when she found herself pregnant after the assault. Jennifer Christie says the incident happened in January 2014 as she stayed at a hotel in a college town. She remembers opening her hotel room door and then when she turned to close it, a large man stood before her and struck her in the face. Christie was found lying in the staircase and tested negative for a number of sexually transmitted diseases. One month later, while working aboard a cruise ship, Christie had an ultrasound done after she fell ill with dysentery. It was then that she discovered that she was pregnant. “I spent the next week listening to a team of very well meaning doctors and nurses console me with how ‘easy’ it would be to ‘take care of it’—to kill the child,” she recalled. But Christie said that she could do no such thing, and neither could her husband. “When I told him I was pregnant, he said with his voice calm and steady, ‘Okay. Okay … All right …. This is all right,” she remembered. “I …read more Source:: Christian News Network       ...

Suspect accused of shooting at Monroe County sheriff's deputies

A suspect in a domestic dispute opened fire at Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputies early Wednesday morning, sheriff’s spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. Deputies Diosvel Fumero and Angelina Lubin were called to the early-morning dispute in Key Largo. When they arrived, they found a man standing behind some bushes, pointing a shotgun at the ground, Herrin said. As the deputies took cover and were ordering him to drop the gun, they heard two shots and saw the muzzle flash as the man apparently fired the gun toward the ground, Herrin said. The man, later identified as Robert Schminky, 57, then fled the scene. Sgt. Sydney Whitehouse and other deputies pursued Schminky, who fired at deputies twice, Herrin said. Schminky was eventually apprehended. Whitehouse suffered bruising on his leg after possibly being grazed by a bullet. …read more Source:: WPLG Local News       ...
