I’m down in D.C. at Family Research Council’s Values Voters Summit today and tomorrow.  President Trump will be speaking this morning and FRC has asked me to speak on a panel discussing pro-family work at the state level tomorrow afternoon.  You can watch the livestream of most of the speakers here.

“Pray. You’ll Need it. Your Cause Will Be Defeated.”

by MFI News

I have to admit, the “counterprotesters” at Saturday’s Defund Planned Parenthood rally in Boston were rather irritating, with their pink knit hats and loud snarky chants.

Thank you to all who were able to […]

MFI stands with David

by MFI News

If you have not yet heard, I want to make you aware of Planned Parenthood’s newest attempt at silencing pro-life voices. A Texas grand jury, motivated by politics, indicted David Daleiden as well as another pro-life activist, Sandra Merritt, on counts of tampering with a governmental record and buying human tissue. They face a penalty of up […]
