Response to the Election Audit Results
What Happens When the Government Decides If Your Life Is Worth Living
Public Opinion of Marriage and Why it Matters
Young People Answer: Was Life Better Before Social Media?
In the Media
The state’s Legislative Audit Bureau has issued the results of its investigation into last November’s election. The report elicited different responses. The state Elections Commission said the investigation confirms a fair and accurate election, with state Democrats agreeing the report shows a “safe and secure” election. Assembly Speaker Republican Robin Vos, along with the Amistad Project, a conservative group that has alleged significant election fraud here, strongly disagreed. Both contend the report shows significant lawlessness in the election.
Julaine Appling responded saying, “At a minimum, the report does show that the millions of dollars poured in from an outside not-for-profit resulted in several municipalities violating current election law. The Republican majority in the legislature have given Democrat Governor Evers a number of election reform bills to address this issue and others, but the governor has vetoed all of them.”
Last Monday the government of the United Kingdom took the liberty of deciding whether or not Alta’s life was worth living and ordered her breathing tube removed and refused to allow her to be transported to another country where she could be treated. “She was just 2 years old, innocent as could be. But Alta suffered from a severe hypoxic ischemic brain injury,” wrote US Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) in a recent LifeNews article.
The British Government decided Alta’s life was not worth living which directly opposed her parents’ wishes and beliefs. This is significant to American citizens because in the words of Senator Rubio, “We often take for granted in America that our rights come from God, not man. Unfortunately, that self-evident truth is under increasing attack here at home.”
May this excruciating occurrence in England motivate us as American citizens and children of God to defend the right to life of every individual — born or unborn!
If you are passionate about the prolife issue, we would like to invite you to the Empower Women Promote Life rally on December 1 in Washington, D.C. on the steps of the US Supreme Court. Join a coalition of pro-life groups, hear national speakers and Members of Congress, and see the Mississippi Attorney General the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 1, as the US Supreme Court hears oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case involving Mississippi’s 15-week prolife law and a case that many believe could mean the end of Roe v. Wade. Let’s rally in support of life! Julaine Appling, president of WFA, will be attending the rally.

Milton Quintanilla, reporting for Christian Headlines wrote, “[The annual 2021 American Family Survey] found that just 45 percent of Americans believe that society is ‘better off’ when ‘more people are married.’ ….The 2021 survey also discovered that just 52 percent of Americans believe that marriage is needed to create strong families. This is a 10 percent drop from 2015.”
Julaine Appling strongly pointed out that the way the public views marriage is significantly important: “Public opinion matters on this because marriage is the foundational institution of society. That’s God’s plan. Individuals play a role in restoring the place of marriage in our society. Married couples need to recommit to each other and let their children know how important marriage is to them, and churches need to champion marriage. Those are at least good starting points.”
Not only is marriage aligned with God’s good plan for our lives, but it has also scientifically been shown to improve the quality of life for individuals. The Institute for Family Studies recently reported on another study stating that: “married individuals consistently reported better mental health—specifically, fewer days of depression, anxiety, worry, and loss of interest in life—throughout the pandemic than their unmarried counterparts.”
Unsurprisingly, God’s way is always the best way!
A recent online poll of Facebook and Instagram users reveals that 64% of Americans say “life was better” before Facebook and other social media platforms. 28% believe they are addicted to social media. 20-21% say they feel depressed, anxious, or alone. These negative emotions are even more pronounced in young people ages 16 to 27, when the percentages climb easily into the 30% range. 65% back government regulation of the platforms, especially to protect children.
Julaine Appling reminds parents that addiction is dangerous, especially for young people. But parents can make a difference for their children: “Some people are willing to admit life was better before social media, that they are addicted to it, and that it makes them depressed, anxious and lonely. But I dare say few are willing to stop using it. That’s the power of addiction. Parents take note. Take steps now to make sure your kids don’t get addicted. Control access and time. Don’t let them substitute a virtual life for real life.”
