Vatican Official Endorses Pro-Life Movie Doonby – Opening Today in Plano, Grand Prairie and Grapevine
The popular culture remains resolute and largely of one mind in its defense of abortion. . . . Is there any other issue in the legal or medical field that Hollywood treats with such one-sided reverence?
Well, all that is slowly changing. The growth in the audience for Christian-themed films has not escaped the notice of the Hollywood studios, which have finally come to understand that such films can mean big business at the box office.
Theater Locations (thru Mar. 1): Plano Cinemark Legacy 24, AMC Grapevine Mills 30, UA Grand Prairie 10 (Denton location canceled). Opening weekend is critically important! (Film not recommended for children under 13 years of age.)
*Note: Technical difficulties with purchasing tickets online have reportedly been resolved by the theaters.

Sweeping HHS Mandate Stands, Violating Conscience Rights and Religious Liberty Congress Must Act to Fix the Problem
On January 20, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reaffirmed a rule that virtually all private health care plans must cover sterilization, abortifacients, and contraception. The exemption provided for "religious employers" was so narrow that it failed to cover the vast majority of faith-based organizations . . . On February 10, the Obama Administration made this rule final “without change”; delayed enforcement for a year against religious nonprofits that were still not exempted (our charities, hospitals, and colleges); and promised to develop more regulations to “accommodate” them by the end of that additional year. But, as explained below, that promised “accommodation” still forces them to pay for “services” that violate their religious convictions. (continue reading)
We urgently need legislation to correct the mandate’s threats to religious liberty and conscience rights. (more)
MESSAGE: “Please co-sponsor and support the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act (H.R. 1179, S. 1467). The Obama administration’s decision to mandate coverage of sterilization and contraceptives, including drugs that can cause an abortion, makes passage of this measure especially urgent. Please ensure that the religious liberty and conscience rights of all participants in our nation’s health care system are respected.”
