EWTN News Nightly Interview: Connecting Children to Gospel-Centered Families
An organization is helping connect vulnerable children with Gospel-centered forever families. Lifeline Children’s Services has placed over 4,300 children and has served over ten thousand families. The organization provides resources to support families who are living the Gospel and showing their adopted children Christ’s love. President and Executive Director of Lifeline Children’s Services, Herbie Newell, joins to tell us more about his organization and the families they have helped throughout the years. Newell released a statement on Friday, on the Court of Appeals upholding a Texas law that bans dismemberment abortions. He said in part, “This is a great victory for all Americans who value the dignity of all human life.” The president of the organization discusses this further. Another win for Catholics in the courts was Fulton v Philadelphia, which said Catholic social services can choose not to place children with same-sex couples because it is within their religious freedom. Newell shares his thoughts on that. He also explains what impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on adoptions. Olympic gymnast Simone Biles recently spoke out about her pro-abortion stance and commented on the cost and difficulties that come along with adoption and the foster care system. Newell reacts to that.
