Abortion-What is it?
Before we can ask about the morality of anything, we have to know what it is. After all, no one complains if you want a wart or cancer removed from your body. but many do complain about abortion. If abortion is just like a wart, who cares do what you want with your body. But there are major differences between an abortion and wart removal. The first major difference is everything that is part of your body, even your warts have your DNA. No one in the world, except maybe your identical twin has your DNA. The thing that is being removed during an abortion has a similar but different DNA pattern. It’s DNA is 50% yours, and 50% of its DNA is the DNA of the father.

The ruling party in China is attempting to increase their control over religious freedom in the country, most recently by taking a crackdown on Christianity.In the country’s province of Henan, which has one of the largest Christian populations in China, churches were raided and demolished, Bibles and holy books were confiscated and new laws were established to monitor religious activities.One Christian named Guo described an incident in which Chinese officials interrupted a church meeting and told everyone to leave.

Why are they telling us to stop now?”
