MEDIA ADVISORY -- The Illinois Family Institute is issuing this public statement to urge Governor J.B. Pritzker and Attorney General Kwame Raoul to prepare to ensure the safety of churches and pro-life pregnancy care centers in Illinois.

David E. Smith, the executive director of the statewide pro-life, pro-family organization, notes that vandalism, arson, threats of violence, and interruption of church services have been escalating since the leak of Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion on abortion.

"We cannot afford to ignore the threats of violence and harassment to achieve political ends," said Smith. "It is wise to anticipate more violent reactions from fringe pro-abortion activists if and when the U.S. Supreme Court hands down its decision in the Dobbs case."

On Pentecost Sunday in Abuja, Nigeria, four gunmen stormed a Catholic Church during mass, massacring at least 50 worshippers in one of the most brutal rampages of the year. As word of the attack spread, so too did outrage that the violence in this African nation continues on.

While Christians have been routinely targeted by Nigeria’s Islamic extremists, this latest slaughter — in the country’s relatively peaceful southwest — is sounding new alarms. “It is a black Sunday in Owo,” Ondo’s governor, Arakunrin Akeredolu, said, condemning a “vile and satanic attack” against people “who have enjoyed relative peace over the years.”

Globe Go Movement

BERLIN -- An estimated 50 million Christians worldwide are sharing their faith on GO Day, May 28th. May is GO Month, and Christians have been sharing their faith through creative outreaches in Brazil, caring outreaches in the largest slum in Africa - Kibera, Kenya, as well as in Nepal, Myanmar, the Philippines, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Mexico, the United States, and many other nations.

"The GO MOVEMENT is a united collaborative effort of many denominations and ministries to mobilize and equip every believer to be a witness and to reach the world together," said GO Movement International Director Beat Baumann. "In 10 years over 64 million people got saved and over one billion people reached in this collaborative effort. The GO MONTH and GO DAY in May are a catalytic momentum with millions of active believers to pray, care, and share. The GO DECADE has the goal to reach every person with the Gospel according to Matthew 28:19 by 2030."

Violence against Christians in Nigeria, including the recently reported news of Christian college student's horrific murder, has continued unabated since the nation was removed last year

Open Doors Logo

WASHINGTON-- In the six months since the Biden administration removed Nigeria from its list of "Countries of Particular Concern" (CPC)—which identifies those in severe violations of religious freedom—religious violence has continued to surge across the region. Last week's gruesome stoning and burning of Nigerian Christian college student, Deborah Samuel, by extremist classmates who accused her of blasphemy, made international news and shocked the world. According to Open Doors' local sources, before she was attacked, Samuel posted a message in a WhatsApp group saying, "Jesus Christ is the greatest. He helped me pass my exams." That simple message led to her death.
