A Rebrand of Common Core is coming unless we stop it through our combined voices speaking against the proposed 2016 English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics Standards. Very little has changed with these 2016 Standards and we will still have Common Core!

- Congratulate President-Elect Trump and Please Sign this Pro-Life Petition!
Click HERE to read and sign the following petition:
Congratulations on winning the presidency! After eight years of the most pro-abortion presidency in U.S. history, I am thrilled that the highest office of the land will now be used to defend the right to life of all U.S. citizens - including the innocent unborn. As such, I encourage you to follow through on the pro-life promises that you made during the campaign without delay. I also want you to know that you will have my support for any and all pro-life initiatives that you take as president, particularly when the going gets tough and you face opposition.
In particular, I encourage you to sign the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, to defund Planned Parenthood, and - if and when the opportunity arises - to nominate staunchly pro-life Supreme Court justices.Click here to read more

- Leonard Cohen, Rest In Peace
As written recently by Jonathon Van Maren, "For all his many faults, Cohen is nothing if not unblinking. His work shows a clear and progressively growing disillusionment with our throwaway culture’s crude approach to everything good and beautiful, and his words often smolder with contempt.
"In Diamonds in the Mine, for example, he mourned the transformative effect of the Sexual Revolution on people:
Ah, there is no comfort in the covens of the witch,
some very clever doctor went and sterilized the bitch,
and the only man of energy, yes the revolution's pride,
he trained a hundred women just to kill an unborn child.
"Such lines have attracted the ire of some of his feminist fans, who began to identify an anti-abortion ethic throughout his work. One pointed to Cohen’s The Story of Isaac, where he condemns those who 'stand above them now, your hatchets blunt and bloody':Click here to read more

- Sing a Little Louder
“Rescue those being led away to death.” Proverbs 24:11.
There are some things that time does not erase.
Years from now will we be like those who tried to explain their apathy while millions of unborn children were led away to slaughter? Will we just sing a little louder or will we raise our voices to defend those who have no voice?
"As the trial balloons and interviews for vice presidential nominations were underway in the summer, every name mentioned to partner with Clinton was devoutly pro-abortion. Every name under consideration by Trump had solid pro-life credentials." Charmaine Yoest in "A Life or Death Decision"

- You never need a late term abortion to save a woman’s life
In the 3rd and final presidential debate, Hillary Clinton was asked why she is against a ban on late-term partial birth abortions. In light of her longstanding association with Planned Parenthood and the abortion business, her answer reveals an astonishing ignorance about the actual process involved in a late term abortion, or she's outright lying.
In this brief segment Ms. Clinton states "I've met with women who at the end of their pregnancy get the worst news that one could get, that their health is in jeopardy if they continue to carry to term or that something terrible has happened or just been discovered about the pregnancy. So, you can regulate if you are doing so with the life and the health of the mother taken into account.”
Here’s the reality. A late term abortion procedure takes 24-72 hours, just to dilate the cervix enough to dismember and remove the baby. A woman whose life is at risk would be dead before the abortion could be completed.
On the other hand, a 1-hour emergency C-Section would most likely save the mother's and her baby's lives.
In the following video, Dr. Anthony Levatino, who has performed over 1200 abortions, explains why “You never need a late term abortion to save a woman’s life.” He is now Pro-Life.Click here to read more
