21 days of prayer for pro life guide 

Many people wish the abortion debate would just go away. They’re tired of the controversy and name-calling played out almost daily on social media. They’re turned off by harsh rhetoric and careless labels, not to mention constant political bickering.
Perhaps you feel this way. You have a heart for the unborn, but have yet to act on your pro-life sentiments. You want to do something, but see only two options — pick a fight or avoid the issue in polite company!
But there’s a third option—pray and engage. And get others to join in!

Putin put Politics ahead of homes for Russian children

Russian President Vladimir Putin says he will sign a controversial bill banning Americans from adopting Russian children.

Putin told a televised meeting on Thursday that he “doesn’t see any reasons” against the bill and said that he “intends to sign it” into law. The president said U.S. authorities deny access to adopted Russian children and lets Americans suspected of violence towards Russian adoptees go unpunished.

Critics say that the bill will deprive many Russian orphans of an opportunity to get a family.

The Russian parliament has voted for the bill, which is part of a larger measure by lawmakers retaliating against a recently signed U.S. law calling for sanctions against Russians deemed guilty of human rights violations.

UNICEF estimates that there are about 740,000 children without parental custody in Russia.

Holding out hope

Bill Blacquire of Bethany Christian Services remains hopeful despite media reports suggesting Putin will sign the bill.

“We are being told that a number of the ministry leaders [in Russia] are saying Please do not sign this bill. We have things going good with the United States,” he tells OneNewsNow. “And we also are being told that this is somewhat unprecedented for Russia where you have ministers of departments [speaking] against the official [government] position.”
( Billy’s thoughts – If this bill does become law it may hurt relations between America and Russia but mostly it will hurt Russian children who don’t have anyone to call mom or dad. We are told Russia today is different than the old Soviet Union but this law seems like something the Soviet Union would do. Read more of this story right here. )

Obama wants to Control the Web

A supporter of smaller government states Barack Obama’s new executive order that gives government the power to shut down the Internet is another example of the president “acting unilaterally.”

President Obama signed the Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions during the first week of this month. The order empowers certain agencies of the US Government to have control over telecommunications during natural disasters and/or security emergencies.

Seton Motley, president of Less Government and editor-in-chief of StopNetRegulation.org, does not see the point.

“My initial response is this is Obama acting unilaterally again. Remember the cyber security ‘kill switch’ bill from 2010? [It] went absolutely nowhere — and deservedly so. So what does Obama do? Okay, can’t pass it through Congress. I’ll just jam it through with an executive order. I’ll have agencies enforce it. We’ve seen it with net neutrality; we’ve seen it with cap and trade,” Motley lists. “All of these are bills that never made it through Congress, but somehow made it into regulatory statute.”

Regardless, the advocate for less government calls the idea “terrible policy.”

“In the event of an emergency, why does he have to shut off the Internet,” he wonders. “There’s nothing to be gained by that. Why is shutting down NationalReview.com or, for that matter, Macys.com helpful to national security? I don’t understand the connection.”

If government has issues with a website and/or information it has posted, Motley suggests it go to court and request that said website be shut down.

It looks to me like President Obama wants control over things outside of government like the leaders of China, Cuba, and Iran have.
