+  Forcing Pregnancy Centers to Promote Abortion in California

  • Description: "Americans United for Life is heartened by the California state court's ruling that forcing Pregnancy Care Centers (PCCs) to promote abortion is an unconstitutional violation of the free speech rights of pro-life Californians under the state’s Constitution. PCCs provide holistic care and real hope for women who are facing unplanned pregnancies. The abortion industry - which claims to care about women’s health and well-being - feels threatened and is trying to undermine Pregnancy Care Centers’ life-affirming healthcare work by lobbying abortion-friendly legislators to pass laws forcing PCCs to post abortion industry-designed signs and messages - a blatantly unconstitutional power play. These life-affirming centers should not be forced to promote the abortion industry’s agenda, and we encourage PCCs across the country to continue filing similar lawsuits that assert their First Amendment rights."

+  Gift of Death: A Message of Comfort and Hope

  • Description: Do you fear death? Our last breath on earth is followed immediately by our first breath in eternity, and for many, the distance between those breaths is full of fear and uncertainty. Through the use of personal stories and insightful conversations, Monica Hannan has opened for us a light into an often dark subject. Her natural gift for storytelling and her in-depth interviews with those who have experienced death, either their own or the deaths of those close to them, offer proof not only that our lives do not end here, but that there is no need to fear our final hours or what comes next. For those who put their trust in God, death truly is a gift, as we close our eyes in this world and open them in the next.
