ERLC and Richard Land

by Jessica Bryan

The ERLC noted that Richard Land was “honored during the first Weyrich Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C.,” commented on the vote by the Senate to table the Nelson-Hatch amendment, reported on the Supreme Court’s decision to hear the case “of the University of California Hastings College of the Law’s refusal to recognize the Christian Legal Society as a ‘registered student organization,'” discussed the vote in the House in the omnibus spending bill that would “drop a longstanding ban on government funds for abortions in the District of Columbia,” and discussed in detail decision made by the woman who quit her job at Planned Parenthood because of a “turn of heart.”

The latest Life Digest post from the group commented on the Berkley City Council’s decision to send coat hangers to pro-life members of Congress and on secret videos on Planned Parenthood “deceit.”  The group also reported on a new “pro-life study” from the World Economic Forum that “showed countries with more restrictive abortion laws have better maternal mortality rates than those with liberal policies.”  Here is some of the evidence they offer:

Ireland, a strongly pro-life country, ranked No. 1 in the world with only one death for every 100,000 live births, according to the report. The United States has a maternal mortality ratio of 17 deaths per 100,000 live births.
