We have a jam-packed hour of information for you. We start with a quick look at some stories making news and then speak directly with the head of a pregnancy help center that was vandalized and firebombed by radical abortion activists. We will also discuss how easy it is to be persuaded by culture and to abandon Biblical truth. We will speak with one man who dared to speak up for the sake of the Gospel. Don’t miss a minute of this conversation.
Join us as we examine life at both ends of the spectrum. We look at the hospice movement in our country and learn why dying is a part of living – and the role that hospice plays in helping people have a ‘good death'. We will then discuss the recent Supreme Court decision on abortion and what impact the so-called ‘abortion pill’ will have on the decision. Great conversation coming your way designed to get you to think critically and biblically.
