Hindu radicals carry out 45 attacks/month on Indian Christians
India’s Supreme Court agreed to hold a hearing next month about increasing attacks on Christians. An Indian Archbishop, the National Solidarity Forum, and the Evangelical Fellowship of India successfully petitioned the court for the hearing.
Hindu radicals carry out 45 to 50 attacks on Christians every month in India. In May, the number of attacks increased to 57.
India’s Supreme Court handed down directives in 2018 to address hate crimes and mob lynchings. However, the recommendations were never enforced.
Please pray for the upcoming hearing on July 11th on behalf of persecuted Christians. India is the 10th worst country in the world to be a Christian.

NATO invited Sweden and Finland to join alliance
The invitation came during a NATO summit in Madrid, Spain. NATO’s 30 member states will need to ratify the decision to make it final.
100,000 Spaniards marched for life
Meanwhile in Madrid, over 100,000 people joined Spain’s March for Life on Sunday.
The killing of unborn babies is already legal up to 14 weeks of pregnancy in Spain. Now, the country’s Congress is considering a bill to make abortion legal for girls as young as 16 without their parent’s knowledge or consent.
Pro-lifers in Spain said they were encouraged in their continued efforts by the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade in the U.S.
Justice Stephen Breyer resigned
Breyer had previously told President Joe Biden he intended to retire after this term.
The Supreme Court will be releasing its final opinions for this term today on immigration and environmental regulatory limits.
Pharmacies limiting emergency contraceptive pills
Pharmacy chains are beginning to limit the number of emergency contraceptive pills people can buy.
The move comes in response to a spike in Plan B purchases after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24th.
On Tuesday, the Biden administration announced it will do everything it can to make the pills more available to Americans.
The use of chemical abortion drugs is also expected to increase in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling. In 2020, abortion drugs accounted for the majority of abortions for the first time since their FDA approval in 2000.
Deuteronomy 30:19 says, “I call Heaven and Earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.”
Georgia college gives $800,000 settlement to former Christian student
A Georgia public college recently reached an $800,000 settlement with a former Christian student over religious freedom violations.
The victory comes after five years of litigation and a Supreme Court ruling.
The case began in 2016 when Georgia Gwinnett College officials stopped student Chike Uzuegbunam from sharing his faith on campus.
ADF Senior Counsel Tyson Langhofer said, “Hopefully, this settlement will send a signal to college and university officials nationwide that students do not lose their constitutional rights at the campus gates, and that anyone who ignores these priceless freedoms can be held to account.”
