Brittany Baker was shocked to find out she was pregnant in October 2015. Though, unlike many women who go through an unexpected pregnancy, the father of Brittany’s child, Dan Gillard, embraced his new role as a father from the beginning, the couple knew they had an uphill climb ahead of them. Amid that pressure, Baker and Gillard turned to Project Life—now “Options for Women St. Croix Valley”—a life-affirming pregnancy center in Stillwater, Minn. “I was pretty scared, pretty shocked,” Baker said. “I didn’t think I’d get pregnant at 22. I was worried about letting the family down or them...Read More

“I won’t tell you how he’s going to go about it,” Caviezel says. “But I’ll tell you this much: The film he’s going to do is going to be the biggest film in history. It’s that good.” It’s a prediction that could prove true. 2004’s The Passion of the Christ, which Gibson directed, co-wrote and produced, was a major milestone in faith-based filmmaking, earning more than $611 million worldwide on a $30 million budget. It’s the highest-grossing R-rated film ever in North America with $370.8 million. The original followed the last 12 hours of Christ’s life as portrayed by Caviezel. The actor hasn’t returned to biblical films until this...Read More
In the early 1960s and 70s, organizations seeking to liberalize abortion laws, like the National Organization for Women (NOW), attempted to convince the nation that women wanted legalized abortion on demand. Many women actually opposed liberalized abortion laws, and those women’s voices were silenced by NOW (who was influenced by men seeking to profit from abortion) and NOW’s friends in the (at that time, majority male-led) media.

As we pass the first anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect on how he got to the Oval Office. And perhaps we can dispel a couple of myths along the way. Donald Trump is president because he won the Electoral College by trouncing Hillary Clinton 304-227. At the same time, Trump lost the popular vote by 2.8 million votes – Hillary received almost 65.8 million votes to Trump’s 63.0 million. This, of course, has led to screeching from the left that Hillary was robbed and that any system which would deprive the winner...Read More
