Malta, Northern Ireland Could Be Pushed Toward Abortion Next
Last week, by a vote of 2 to 1, Irish voters cast their referendum ballots in favor of the killing of babies in the womb.

Anglican bishops from the diocese of Lichfield, England issued a statement in which they called for homosexuals to take on “roles of leadership and service in the local church”.

President Trump’s Memorial Day tweet noted that “Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER. . . rebuilding our military and so much more.”
The president spoke at Arlington National Cemetery, encouraging the American people to remember those who have fought and died in the nation’s wars.
