The Roe Enigma: What the Pew Survey Tells Us
By Judie Brown
A recent survey regarding opinions about abortion shows just how little Americans know about the preborn baby and his humanity. Most see abortion 
as merely an issue to be debated, yet they fail to recognize that the life of a human being hangs in 
the balance of this debate. Today's commentary addresses this and tells us what we need to do to 
help people understand what is really at stake.

Mississippi issues notice it intends to revoke the license of the state's last abortion facility
Mississippi's last abortion facility received notice on Friday that the state health department intends to revoke its license. If the clinic closes, that would make Mississippi the first state without a single abortion clinic. Jackson Women's Health Organization could not comply with a state law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals, in the case of botched abortions. However, it may remain open until the board completes its final hearings. The process could take a month.

Black groups and community activists will protest the 44th NAACP Image Awards
Christian Newswire
February 1, 2013, will mark the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization's 44th Image Awards Show to honor cultural and entertainment luminaries presenting the best face of black Americans. However, this year a number of black groups, churches and community activists along with the National Black Prolife Coalition (NBPLC) will be protesting the event due to the failure of the civil rights organization to represent the best interests of the community. The issues range from abortion, traditional marriage, destruction of the black family and the extraordinarily high incarceration rate of black men. Protesters from across the nation will assemble in Los Angeles to declare that the NAACP has betrayed the black community.

Three-parent embryo: Modifying future generations
National Catholic Register
In October of 2012, scientists in Oregon announced they had created a dozen human embryos with the genetic material from two women and one man. While these embryos never made it to 
a womb, these researchers are hopeful that they will be given federal approval to, as USA Today reports, "test the procedure in women." This, of course, means transferring these genetically modified embryos to mothers willing to gestate them. A few weeks later, in December 2012, scientists from New York proclaimed they have improved upon the technique that created these three-parent embryos and are intent on further developing their breakthrough for use in humans.
