    While celebrities such as Kate Hudson, Khloe Kardashian, Gisele Bundchen, and Reese Witherspoon spent Mother’s Day paying tribute to the special women in their lives, Lena Dunham observed the holiday by asking others to join her in protecting abortion rights on social media. The star and creator of the HBO series Girls has been a vocal proponent for abortion throughout her career, and as the aforementioned stars were paying homage to the ladies who gave them life Sunday, Dunham was reminding her two million Twitter followers she believes life should be given strictly by choice. She tweeted:

    The increase in violence that has followed the death of Freddie Gray continued through the weekend, with four homicides reported since Saturday, according to Baltimore police. Ten people were reported shot on Sunday alone, including three who were shot to death within a span of 39 minutes. The violence comes as the city prepares for the Preakness on Saturday at Pimlico Race Course. Ten people were also shot Thursday. At least 87 people have been killed in Baltimore this year, 22 more than at this time last year. Nonfatal shootings are up nearly 50 percent across the city.

    In a bizarre move, a Huffington Post blogger is wishing women a “Happy Mother’s Day!” – by calling for an end to mothers’ “unwanted” babies. In a May 6 Huffington Post piece, blogger Kristine Holmgren argued for “No More Angry Mothers; Embracing Accessible Abortion and Affordable Contraception.” In it, she announced that before “safe, affordable, accessible abortion” existed, most mothers were “angry mothers.” To prevent future “angry mothers,” Holmgren declared that women should “protect our liberties,” including “our birthright” to abortion this Mother’s Day. Kristine Holmgren, a self-described “Feminist [Presbyterian] theologian and produced playwright” stressed a “deep commitment to the...

    WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton has figured out a way to monetize Mother’s Day — inviting supporters to enter a contest where she’ll ring up Mom just in case you forget to send flowers. The Clinton camp tweeted out the contest Sunday, just when many Americans were scrambling for last-minute gifts and brunch reservations. Entering is free, but those who sign up get directed to a page where they get the chance to “increase your odds” by giving cash to Clinton’s presidential campaign. Contribution amounts are listed at amounts ranging from $5 to $2,700. There is no second prize listed —...

A participant question during a break help me realize the impact of such coverage, “Is the treatment of blacks by the police in America getting worse?” I confided that there was a big difference between the peaceful demonstrators and the majority of those taking advantage of the situation to loot and destroy. Bad police officers exist, but the vast majority are good men and women doing a tough job as fairly as...

Perhaps her purgation was at an end, or perhaps some roadblock in my own heart moved. But there she was, and once...

On Sunday afternoon, Christine Weick stood at an intersection in the city of Grandville with a sign that read, “Thank your mom today for not being gay.” Her message was that Mother's Day is a celebration of children and the natural family, something incompatible with homosexuality. A man later stood by her side and held up a sign supporting homosexuality. As a camera crew from...

It’s the biggest phone-calling day of the year, according to History.com, with call volume spiking by as much as 37 percent. And it’s the biggest holiday of the year for dining out, according to the National Restaurant Association. What most of us are unaware of is the Christian origin of Mother’s Day.

    Mother’s Day is a wonderful celebration- a time when mothers are honored for their constant love and daily sacrifice, and when life itself is recognized and treasured as the gift that it is. But for many women who have had abortions, Mother’s Day is one of the biggest triggers of painful memories, regrets, and remorse over what “might have been.” My heart breaks for these women. Even though they accepted and believed the messages our society esteems so highly—messages about a woman’s right to choose and the importance of “family planning”—these women have learned, through bitter experience, the truth that...

    Mother, Mom or Mommy, the name matters not to me; it's the person who matters.

She was my comforter, even when she was the one who had just disciplined me. In her lap, with her arms around me, I felt loved, safe and secure. When I was a teenager, she played the role of the heavy. "I have broad shoulders," she once told me. "Blame me, instead of yourself, if you don't want to...

    President Obamam had just wrapped up an event at the White House touting ObamaCare. The theme? Mother's Day of course. And who was in the audience? Representatives from Planned Parenthood on behalf of "women's health." That's right, the country's largest abortion provider, eliminating hundreds of thousands of lives and mothers each year, was at Obama's side while he falsely claimed ObamaCare has been good for women.. As a reminder, 92 percent of pregnant women who walk into a Planned Parenthood clinic walk out unpregnant. 92 percent of pregnant women going to Planned Parenthood get abortions while a handful get prenatal...

    A Letter to a congregation I Have Two Moms May 10, 2013 Many of you know that I was a foster child. When I was a kid, I had never met my father and then my mother died when I was five years old. My two sisters and I were passed around a bit in the “system.” It wasn’t so fun. For that story see this blog: http://www.westsideinfo.com/rwt-blog-24708 Then, just before I turned eight, a family with 5 kids of their own took my two sisters and me into their home. My new mother’s name was Gerrie. She is my...

    A recent article high-lighted the pro-life commercial of Publix grocery store in which a mother and her daughter discuss in human terms the mother’s unborn child. The daughter in the commercial speaks to the unborn baby believing it can hear her (and it can!). It’s not often that you see commercials showing the unborn in such human terms, but after the Gosnell trial we hope to see more. You can watch the video here.

    PHILADELPHIA, April 16, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Kermit Gosnell's history of injuring women through reckless abortion practices extends as far back as 1972, when he injured nine women by testing an experimental abortion device on them that caused plastic razor blades to lacerate their wombs. Even then, however, Gosnell escaped receiving any disciplinary action, with the state turning a blind eye, as it would for the next four decades as he operated his "House of Horrors." According to the grand jury report that was compiled after Gosnell was arrested, in 1972 a group of 15 women in their second trimester were...

    BEAUMONT — Evetta Wright said she was puzzled when she got a call early Monday from her son. Not long before, around 11:30 p.m. Sunday, she'd dropped Clifton “JR” Barkin off at his house after taking him to Wal-Mart to buy flowers and a Mother's Day card for Paige Parkerson, the mother of Barkin's two small children. When she answered the phone, she said Parkerson was on the line. “Paige told me she killed JR, that he was dead,” Wright said through sobs. Wright said she sped back over to her son's house, but it was too late. Barkin, 22,...

    ....She was a woman of many names. Born Stanley Ann Dunham, she assumed, as most people did, that her unusual first name was imposed by her father. An uncle tells a different story, attributing the choice to Madelyn Dunham, Stanley Ann’s mother, who as a small-town Kansas girl yearned to emulate Bette Davis, the sophisticated actress she saw on the big screen at the air-conditioned Augusta Theater. While Madelyn was pregnant, Davis was starring in a movie in which she played a female character named Stanley. (As it happened, no two people could have been less alike than Madelyn’s daughter...
