Segment 2 – Human Coalition Applauds Fifth Circuit for Restoring Critical Safety Regulations of Abortion Pills
“Human Coalition applauded the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals for revoking the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval of mail-order abortion pills, in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. U.S. Food and Drug Administration. While abortion pills may remain on the U.S. market, a unanimous panel of the Fifth Circuit ruled on Wednesday that they may not be distributed through the mail.”

Rev. Dean Nelson serves as the vice president of government relations for the Human Coalition, one of the largest pro-life organizations in the United States. He also serves as the chairman of the Douglass Leadership Institute, an education organization advocating for human dignity, strong families, and limited government. Rev. Nelson is a licensed minister from Salem Baptist Church in Marshall, Va., and an ordained bishop with Wellington Boone Ministries.



Segment 3 & 4 – “What is Christianity? The Last Writings” by Pope Benedict XVI
“After Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI resigned from the papacy in 2013, he never stopped thinking or writing. Near the end of his life, he and editor Elio Guerriero gathered together a whole volume of new material, dealing with the themes closest to his heart. The pope asked that it be published upon his death. This final work is What Is Christianity? It takes up a kaleidoscopic array of themes: the Christian faith’s relationship with other religions, especially Judaism and Islam; the theology and reform of the liturgy; the priesthood; the saints; the Eucharist; the travesty of abuse; the beauty of nature; Italian and German culture; and much more.”  Mark Brumley discusses the book with Teresa.
