Although clearly a pro-choice advocate, Kate Pickert in the January 14 Time Magazine cover story, “What Choice?” admits that “the pro-choice cause is in crisis.”
In the article, Pickert says there is a rebellion going on within the abortion rights cause, pitting younger feminists against the old-time leaders who were in their 20’s and 30’s when the battle began with Roe. But now, she says, these leaders are out of touch with the problem of state laws that curtail abortion while polls are showing abortion acceptance dwindling. The younger women want to take control of the fight, and believe they can do better than the old guard.
Pickert claims that this rebellion pitting feminists against feminists is tearing the movement apart at the very time state laws are eroding access to abortion, and that this power grab within the movement has come at a time when public opinion is turning against abortion. The elderly leadership, young pro-choice advocates say, cannot solicit young people to get involved in the battle to keep abortion legal. They think they can.

BECKLEY WV – A new short term class on evangelism will be offered on Monday nights at the CRC.

(Matt. 9:37) The class will include teaching, discussion, and strategic examples of practical application for both churches and individual believers and look at ways to provide ongoing support for those desiring to reach people with the good news of Christ.
Last month (October 2012) marked the birthday of someone extra special to a lot of people -- Joni Eareckson Tada celebrated her 63rd birthday. A quick glance at her recent ministry activity and it's no wonder that she is referred to as a "national treasure" (thanks to Ron Harris, NRB Executive, for coining the phrase!).
