1. NC VALUES: We're planning towards a pro-life NC

We've been very busy working with legislators and influencers to advance the pro-life movement through legislation and events. Would you consider making a needed $100, $50, $25 or more donation today towards our end-of-the-quarter fundraising goal to ensure our second quarter campaigns as just as successful as our first?

2. NEWS & OBSERVER: NC abortion law is unconstitutional, federal court rules

3. THE BLAZE: Female HS student files civil rights complaint: 'I felt very violated' changing in locker room when transgender student was 'looking at me'

"The unnamed female student appears in the clip and said "while I was putting on my pants I heard a man's voice, so I turned around, and he's standing there on the opposite aisle looking at me. I glanced down and could tell that he was wearing women's underwear and what was underneath it."

She added: "When I knew that a man was looking at me, I felt very violated and very scared — especially looking at me while I'm getting dressed.""


4. CHRISTIAN POST: My uncontrollable sobbing while watching 'Unplanned' scared my wife

"This weekend, history will be made as the Unplanned movie will open in more than 1,100 theaters across the nation. And you can expect the backlash to be intense. And I mean very intense. The foundations of the pro-abortion movement, in particular, those of Planned Parenthood, will be challenged. Evil will be exposed and hope will be exalted."

'Unplanned' is now in theaters. Find your nearest location here.



5. LIFENEWS: Every Democrat Who Voted Against the Born Alive Bill Received Money From Planned Parenthood

"Of the 44 senators who voted against ending debate and proceeding to a vote on the Born Alive bill, 42 were Democrats – all of whom received funding from Planned Parenthood during their latest election cycle."





LORD, you are the Judge of the nations. You are Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. You are sovereign over all.

LORD, may we find assurance and comfort in the reality that you are the LORD God. In spite of the political events that are unfolding in our country and around the world, we remind ourselves that you are in control. That the Church is within the protection of your providence. That Jesus is our Prince of Peace, and that one day every knee shall bow and declare His Lordship. 

LORD, show us the truth. Help us to see through political ads and empty rhetoric so that we cast our votes for women and men who serve You first and foremost in their lives. Help us to reflect Your character in our citizenship and in our voting. Most of all, LORD, help the Church to vote!

“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God." (Romans 13:1)

"For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations." (Psalms 22:28)
