TIANJIN, China,—Traumatized by more than a year of torture, a prominent Christian human rights lawyer in China’s Tianjin municipality fears he might die of medical conditions.
Li Chunfu (pictured), a rights attorney, was released on bail yesterday, emaciated and aged. When his spouse noticed he was fearful of entering his own apartment, she wept.
Since his release, Li revealed to his wife that he was subjected to medical examinations almost daily while being held in an unofficial “black jail.” The authorities diagnosed him with high blood pressure, even though he has never suffered from it before, and fed him unknown medications. Li also claimed that his heart is damaged and believes he does not have long to live.
COLUMBUS, Ohio—For years, Created Equal has shared anecdotal evidence of the power of victim images to change minds, point individuals toward the healing of the Gospel, and more.

The study confirms what pro-lifers have witnessed for decades: seeing abortion victims alters how individuals feel about abortion-which in turn influences how they think about abortion, including their political views. Those with greater negative feelings toward abortion, for example, favored prohibition.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo—This week, attorneys with the Thomas More Society, a national public interest law firm, filed a federal civil rights complaint against the Governors of Missouri State University on behalf of Andrew Cash. Cash was a student at the university who was dismissed from his M.S. in Counseling program after expressing concern over counseling same-sex couples due to his religious convictions. His suit claims that he was unable to complete his counseling curriculum, and is now prevented from working as a counselor, causing him daily emotional suffering. He is seeking for MSU to reinstate him in his counseling program with safeguards put in place so that he can successfully earn his degree.
Cash began the counseling program at MSU in September 2007. He was a student in excellent standing and nearing the completion of his degree when the disagreement with the school arose in 2011 over counseling gay couples.
