    Houston, Texas, January 18, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, national spiritual and political leaders joined a sign-waving crowd of what is being reported as "thousands" of pro-lifers in Houston today to rally against what they called a "prenatal racial genocide" perpetrated by Planned Parenthood through abortion. In April, Planned Parenthood purchased a six-story, 78,000-square-foot former bank building in Houston to turn into the nation's largest abortion mill. The building is situated in an 80% minority community area. The move sparked outrage from pro-lifers, who said that Planned Parenthood began as a eugenics organization designed to...

    Tuning in to President Obama's health care town hall today, you couldn't help but notice how much tamer the line of questioning was compared to what Obama's fellow Democrats have been up against. By and large, instead of the persistent tough queries that greeted the likes of Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Arlen Specter (D-Penn.), the president fielded much easier questions. The toughest questioner tried to tag him on his earlier comments approving of a government-run "single-payer" system but unfortunately couldn't get the point of distinction between it and the much more amorphous "universal" health care system, thus allowing Obama to...

It just hit me this morning right after mass -- if everyone all across the nation had a call to prayer on the 29th...an evening vigil so to speak for our nation, our military, and our nations un-born children -- that would be far more important than sitting at home and watching the Obama "info-mercial."

That could set the stage for the monument to be removed ... or fines imposed on the state. Scores of Moore supporters sang and prayed outside the building as about 20 inside were removed from the rotunda. It wasn't immediately known...
