#471 PP, Immigrants, CJ Williams, Why Not Ended?

Planned Parenthood Watch The good news: the new regulation prohibiting the use of Title X family-planning funds for places that do abortions, which had an injunction against it, had that injunction removed on July 12, 2019, by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court. The regulation goes into effect while it's being appealed. Just as much money can go to family planning; non-abortion places will now have more access to the funds.

#468 Actions for 2020

2020: Albuquerque Actions Mark your calendars now, if coming to either of these interests you; we’ve already started to line up local hospitality. Both involve groups and endorsers that are sympathetic to the consistent life ethic (CLE), but that must deal with many constituents who don’t understand the case against abortion. Yet to these endorsers, directly making the full case for the CLE to their own groups is a skill they haven’t yet developed. So it’s our job to help. If you’re interested, let us know at weekly@consistent-life.org . May 15-17, Conspire conference Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) CAC is a member group, and CAC founder Richard Ro
