RECENT MONTHS HAVE BROUGHT Evangelicals a tidal wave of bad news. From the presidential election results to the legalization of Marijuana and same sex marriage, the cause of biblical morality has been on the defensive.

However, good news just arrived on the abortion front. For those in the know it has been apparent for several years that public opinion is slowly moving into the pro-life camp. Two events in recent days confirm this change.

First, the State of Arkansas passed legislation that made abortion beyond the twelfth week of pregnancy illegal. Second, the State of North Dakota, just passed legislation making it illegal to abort a fetus on the basis of downs syndrome or fetal deformity.

These are the most far-reaching attempts to restrict abortion in recent years. They will probably be challenged in courts higher up the food chain, but in the meantime, we should rejoice.
