With Congress set to return from recess on September 8, NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson is encouraging the association’s members to contact their representatives about defunding the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and to utilize their media platforms to urge others to do the same.
Leaders of the powerful House Energy & Commerce Committee recently announced an expansion of their investigation spurred by undercover videos that show key Planned Parenthood officials describing and negotiating the sale of aborted babies’ body parts.
NRB member organizations Reach Beyond, Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC), and Moody Global Ministries combined their efforts last month and raised $311,519 to fund equipment to start radio stations in three major cities in Mongolia that do not have access to Christian radio.
