Interview: "Obvious Child's" Jenny Slate and Gillian Robespierre

Date: 06/12/2014

Jenny Slate gives a star-making performance in "Obvious Child," a romantic comedy about Donna, a young stand-up comic who becomes pregnant and has an abortion.

Date: 05/13/2014

“There is No Condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…” Romans 8:1 What does Mother’s Day feel like for someone with empty arms? And more specifically one who chose abortion.

To me, this just defies logic! I have to wonder what is in the heart ...
