Supreme Court sides with pro-life pregnancy centers in California abortion case
The Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked a California law requiring pro-life pregnancy centers to post information on programs to obtain and free or low-cost abortion.
The 5-4 ruling in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra sent the case back to a lower court to be reconsidered, in light of the Supreme Court’s finding that “We hold that petitioners are likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that the FACT Act violates the First Amendment.”
Lower courts had rejected a petition to temporarily block the California law while it was being legally challenged. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the case against the law was unlikely to succeed on its merits.
16-year-old boy with cancer uses his Make a Wish to ask for an end to abortion
When you’re 16 years old and living with and dying from cancer, no one would expect you to use the wish granted to you by the Make a Wish Foundation in a completely selfless way. But that’s just what Jeremiah Thomas did. In March, the all-star, state champion athlete was diagnosed with osteoblastic osteosarcoma, a bone cancer that is resistant to radiation therapy and has a survival rate of just 10 percent. With a tumor dangerously close to his heart and two on his spine, his doctors told his parents that it was too late. He was paralyzed from the waist down from the tumor on his spine but it didn’t hold him back.
“I can still preach from a wheelchair,” he said.

Good morning, Ed!
One year ago, I was busy putting the final touches on Care Net’s brand new resource, Pro-Life 101. This first-ever, free online course helps pro-life people learn the history of abortion and how they can reach those facing difficult pregnancy decisions with the compassion, hope, and help of Jesus.
The response has been fantastic!
Ed, since the course launched on July 1, 2017 more than 18,000 people have enrolled and are learning to transform their pro-life passion into life-saving action! Isn’t that incredible?
Each weekly session takes about fifteen minutes, and the entire self-led course is only 6-weeks long. Each student learns the facts about abortion and the abortion industry and how to confidently and lovingly stand for the unborn whose lives hang in the balance.
Imagine how many babies this training could help you save.
Every day, the abortion industry continues to fill the minds of Americans with lies about its grisly, destructive work. There is a critical need for reliable information about the abortion epidemic and its far-reaching consequences so that we, as pro-life supporters, can stand up for the most vulnerable among us. This year, close to a million babies are expected to lose their lives in abortion if we don’t act.
But how can we take action if we aren’t equipped?
That’s why I wanted to make sure that you have an opportunity to experience Pro-Life 101. Your passion to see unborn lives saved from abortion is clear, Ed, and I know that you would benefit from this course.
You can sign up today for free here: https://resources.care-net.org/pro-life-101/
I hope to see you complete the course! Together, we can save these babies and introduce their parents to the marvelous love of Jesus Christ.
