Who Really Speaks for Women?

By Editorial Staff
Published September 1, 1992

The National Women’s Coalition for Life – with more than 1.5 million members – now dwarfs the National Organization for Women’s claimed membership of 280,000.

When the National Organization for Women (NOW), the Fund for a Feminist Majority, and other women’s rights organizations began planning their March for Women’s Lives, they never anticipated the level of opposition they would encounter from the very people they claim to represent.

On April 3, just two days prior to NOW’s march, the National Women’s Coalition for Life (NWCL) became the largest pro-women’s rights coalition in the nation, dwarfing NOW’s claimed membership of 280,000. This new coalition, with groups from all sides of the political, religious, social, and ethnic spectrum, is united by a belief in the dignity of womanhood and in the sanctity of human life.

According to Beth Luteran, Communications Coordinator of NWCL, “We are here to reclaim the women’s movement. NOW is nothing more than an abortion advocacy group. They have sacrificed women’s concerns to the abortion ‘rights’ lobby. The foundresses of the women’s movement were pro-life. We consider ourselves to be the true successors of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Put simply, NOW does not represent American women. We do.”

In addition to reclaiming the women’s movement, Luteran sees a need for NWCL to act as an “umbrella group” for diverse pro-life women’s organizations. Membership includes groups ranging from the conservative Concerned Women for America to the liberal Feminists for Life.

NWCL shows the media that the pro-life movement is as diverse as America. The fact that groups that disagree on many other issues can come together as a coalition speaks volumes about the significance of the pro-life position,” stated Luteran.

NWCL wants to show America this diversity and the staunch opposition of many women’s rights organizations to legalized abortion on demand. Thus it is working to coordinate public discourses about abortion with representatives from NWCL and pro-abortion women’s groups. These discussions, which will likely take place on university campuses, are but one tier of NWCL’s plan to reclaim the women’s rights movement.

With the continued pro-abortion bias of the media, NWCL has its work cut out. However, there are some signs of change among the media. The Washington Post printed a story pointing out that the April 5th pro-abortion marchers were “out of touch” with mainstream America. Luteran theorizes that this recognition was inevitable: “Most women care about womanhood, motherhood, and life. We feel that womanhood and motherhood are intertwined … Our message is one which almost any woman in America will agree with.”

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

Running Time: 130 minutes
