The Christian Post: Most Evangelical Leaders OK with Killing Babies using 'Birth Control'

A majority of so called "evangelical leaders" approve of artificial methods of contraception, a new survey reveals. The National Association of Evangelicals, which represents more than 45,000 churches in the United States, released a report Tuesday showing that nearly 90 percent approve of contraception. Several leaders, however, expressed opposition to drugs or procedures that terminate a pregnancy once conception has taken place. "Most associate evangelicals with Catholics in their steady leadership in pro-life advocacy, and rightly so," said heretic Leith Anderson, president of the NAE, in a statement. "But it may come as a surprise that unlike the Catholic church, we are open to contraception."

Lying face to face, with one arm draped around the other, Kaydon and Kameron appear to be locked in a loving embrace. But the boys, not yet 3 months old, have no choice but to hug each other every minute of every day. They are conjoined twins who share a liver and a single malformed heart. Doctors discussed terminating the pregnancy with the mother, Brianna Manns, 21, after they determined the twins were not likely to survive. But Manns said abortion was never an option. "I am a strong believer in not having abortions -- very, very strong," said Manns, taking a break from the neonatal intensive care unit at University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago, where her sons are hospitalized. "And they are my babies."

An "offensive" anti-abortion leaflet distributed to Waverley households is under investigation and could be banned. In the lead-up to State Parliament debating a bill to decriminalise abortion, pro-life group Tell the Truth Coalition dropped 20,000 leaflets into the letterboxes of Mt Waverley MP Maxine Morand's constituents. Ms Morand, as Women's Affairs and Children's Minister, sponsored the bill, which passed through the State Parliament's lower house last Friday morning. One side of the leaflet labels Ms Morand as an "extreme pro-abortionist" and on the other side it depicts a foetus at different stages of development up to 12 weeks. The Advertising Standards Bureau (ASB) is reviewing the leaflet, which could be banned, but the coalition has vowed to continue its fight against the decriminalisation of abortion.

More than 60 pro-life associations will gather outside the Spanish Supreme Court on July 3 in Madrid to express their rejection of the country's new law on abortion.

The groups will also demand that the legislation be placed under an injunction until a ruling is made on a case challenging its constitutionality filed by the People's Party.

The theme of the protest will be "25 Years Are Enough! Yes to Life for All," and will take place two days before the new law is scheduled to take effect on July 5. Though abortion is already legal in the country, the new legislation allows abortion up to the fourteenth week of pregnancy and in some cases, up to the twenty-second week.
