HAPPY NEW YEAR From the WFA & WFC Staff
FDA Approved Sending Abortion-Inducing Medication via Mail
30-year Veteran Swim Official Resigns in Protest to Trans-Athlete Policy
North Carolina Sheriff Defends the Word of God
In the Media
Tomorrow we finish one year and prepare for a new one. As we reflect on God’s goodness over the past twelve months and anticipate His blessing in the coming months, we think the old hymn Great Is Thy Faithfulness sums it up.
Thomas Chisholm wrote, “Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father; There is no shadow of turning with Thee; Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not; As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be. Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord, unto me.” May those words bless and encourage us as we close out the old and begin the new.
In that hymn, the writer also talks about having “strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,” not because of our own efforts or worth, but because of the faithfulness of our great God. While uncertainty surrounds us, we can confidently go forward into 2022 because our God is faithfully working His plan for our good and His glory. A blessed New Year to all!
Earlier this month, the FDA permanently ended its COVID-related temporary ban on sending an abortion-inducing medication by mail. Now women can consult healthcare providers by telemedicine and receive the pills by mail. Wisconsin law currently requires that the clinician prescribing this medical abortion drug must be in the physical presence of the patient. The law is being challenged in court. Recent studies show about 54% of abortions are now medically-induced.
Julaine Appling lamented this news and explained how it’s important for women, “Requiring women to pick up this potent abortion-causing drug in person from a doctor is all about protecting women. Getting it by mail puts women at risk. Making matters worse, Governor Evers recently vetoed a bill that would have required that women seeking a medication-induced abortion be told about a pill that can undo the effect of this abortion drug.”
It’s more important than ever that pro-life advocates know about abortion pill reversal. If a woman has taken the first of two pills for an at-home medical abortion procedure and changes her mind, the abortion reversal pills have been proven to be very successful in saving unborn lives.

Christianpost.com reports that a thirty-year veteran USA Swimming official has resigned in protest over the University of Pennsylvania allowing a biological male to compete on the women’s swimming team after competing three years on the men’s team. Cynthia Millen says she resigned because she believes allowing trans-identified biological male athletes to compete in women’s swim meets is fundamentally unfair. Millen said in a recent interview, “…swimming is a sport in which bodies compete against bodies. Identities do not compete against identities.”
Julaine Appling responded saying, “Kudos to this official. We need more people who will speak out about the patent unfairness of biological males participating in women’s sports. This trans man illustrates it perfectly. He won in a women’s swim meet and set a new record. In doing so, he robbed the legitimate female athletes of the opportunity to win. It’s time to stop the charade, admit the truth, and return fairness to girls’ and women’s sports and to the female athletes who work hard to excel at their sports.”
On December 6, Sherriff Greene from Columbus County (N.C.) received a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation asking him to remove the Bible verse displayed on the office wall. (Freedom From Religion Foundation is headquartered in Madison, WI.)
Michael Foust, writing for Christian Headlines reported that Greene refused to remove the Bible verse, stating, “’The verse [Philippians 4:13] is one of my favorite Bible verses…Here at the Sheriff’s Office, we work hard in everything that we do. Before we execute a search warrant, or any service that puts our people in immediate harm’s way, we ALWAYS go to the Lord with a group prayer. ALWAYS!’ … Referencing overdoses, drugs and violence within the country, Greene added, ‘We need more Jesus and less politics.’”
The Bible says that God’s Word is living and active. In the Old Testament we are instructed to hide God’s Word in our hearts. We are inspired by and applaud individuals like Sheriff Greene who boldly declare their faith in the public arena and stand up for the Word of God. Posting a verse of Scripture in a Sheriff’s office doesn’t mean the government has endorsed a specific religion. If that were the case, every Liberty Bell in every state capitol would need to be removed, since the original Liberty Bell and all of the replicas that were given to state capitols (including the one in the Wisconsin capitol) have Leviticus 25:10 inscribed around the top of the bell.
