#458 Sri Lanka & Yemen, Immigration & Eugenics

Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, and Yemen We’re horrified by reports of massacres once again, this time by the Easter Sunday carnage in Sri Lanka. This country had a series of civil wars, 26 years and over 100,000 deaths. The hope that war ended in 2009 is dashed – as is common in the aftermath of wars. The model of using bombs continues to be followed. Even individual criminal homicides tend to go up as a result of wars. Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, the U.N Assistance Mission documented 581 civilians killed in the first quarter of 2019 by U.S. & Afghan forces. The Taliban added many more - but not quite as many.

#455 Unplanned, Rwanda, Peace in Trouble

The Movie Unplanned is a Success! The Good News: Consistent-life endorser Abby Johnson reports: “Unplanned exceeded every expectation that was set for it. And then some. According to a Forbesarticle, the movie, and its success (Ya'll, we beat Captain Marvel in a key cinema score!) was a miracle. And getting my story onto the big screen certainly was. But do you know what is an even bigger miracle? What is happening NOW; the conversations, the conversions, and the abortion clinic workers contacting our ministry [And Then There Were None] because they have been touched by what they saw on the screen.” The Hollywood Reporter says Unplanned played in over a thousand theate
