Standing for Truth and Defending Your Freedom
Standing for Truth and Defending Your Freedom

January Impact 2016

by Dr. Frank Wright, Ph.D.

America’s Declaration of Independence acknowledges that all human beings are “endowed by their creator” with the unalienable, unalterable rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Notice that one of these has priority: All of our other rights, privileges, joys, and even sorrows hang on the first, most fundamental right—the right to live.

“The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life."     — Job 33:4

God is life, and the giver of life, yet we live in a culture that foolishly devalues it. In Proverbs, the personification of wisdom says, “all those who hate me love death” (Proverbs 8:36). To reject the wisdom of God is to embrace death—and yet, our culture rejects God’s Word and embraces the destruction that comes with it . . . often even celebrating it!

  • Feminist icon Gloria Steinem recently said of her own abortion, “It gave me my life . . . I mean, I wouldn’t have been able to live my life ”
  • Actress Lena Dunham promised before Halloween 2015, “I’m going as something newsy, sexy, and cool: a Planned Parenthood doctor!”
  • Undercover videos showed Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the sale of aborted baby parts, but the Obama White House says they uphold “the highest ethical standards.” And the President has said that Planned Parenthood is doing God’s work!

January 2016 marks the 43rd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions that legalized abortion on demand across America. But thankfully, there is reason for optimism. While some claim Christian pro-life political efforts have failed, in reality, an estimated 500,000 fewer children per year are being killed in the womb today than were being killed in 1990— and abortions are at their lowest since 1973.

By the grace of God the message is getting through. The efforts of ministries like ours, through the help of people just like you, are changing hearts and minds.

  • Planned Parenthood is on the run, scrambling to maintain its generous federal
  • Younger people are more pro-life than
  • Late-term abortionists like the monstrous Kermit Gosnell are being brought to legal justice for their gruesome crimes
  • Laws seriously restricting abortion have been passed all over the United States
  • In this month’s Impact Newsletter, we look at the value of human life and the attacks upon And you will notice some further improvements in the Impact Newsletter & Devotional. We have expanded the devotional from D. James Kennedy and his longtime co-author Jerry Newcombe and printed it as a separate booklet. We trust this will build you up in the Word of God and bring encouragement to you in the new year. The feature articles will continue in the newsletter, where we can keep you updated on the important issues our ministry is addressing.

In addition, we have an important announcement. In January 2016, D. James Kennedy Ministries will be launching a major Life Initiative for protecting all human life from the cradle to natural end of life. We have consulted with experts and harnessed the available technology to unveil the first stage: a resource website to connect women in crisis pregnancies with pro-life centers in their areas, which: 1) counsel them, 2) educate them, 3) help them with their needs, 4) lead them to Christ, and 5) guide them to save the lives of their babies. This ambitious project can potentially save thousands of lives, and we hope to follow this with components defending life in the areas of suicide, euthanasia, and death panels (via government health care). But we need your help to be able to do any of this. We need you to stand boldly with us for life.

Please consider giving a generous donation to help us with this urgent Life Initiative, as well as to enable us to continue the other important outreaches of this ministry. If you are able to give a generous donation, we will thank you by sending you the newest book from the Kennedy Collection, called Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, featuring Dr. Kennedy’s most powerful and persuasive pro- life messages. This book is just off the press, and we want you to be among the first to have it as our thanks for your generous donation.

If you are able to give a donation of $40 or more, we will also send you the six-DVD (or six-CD) set of these messages, also called Fearfully and Wonderfully Made. That’s the Kennedy Collection hardcover book plus the six-DVD (or CD) set as our thanks for your generous donation of $40 or more.

Help us make a real difference in real lives. And may God bless you in this New Year!

God bless you, and God bless America,
