The Gospel is for Baby-Killers: “After the Lord saved me, it took me over a decade to speak openly about my abortion. For years the only friend who knew about it was my husband.… It’s been hard to be on social media for the last three weeks.” (Patti Withers)

Straining Gnats and Siding with Pharaoh Over the Midwives: “Here’s my question: who’s the hero of the story? Or, rather, who’s the villain? What’s your instinctive answer?
