Federal court strikes down HHS mandate for Ohio business

Common sense prevails at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals — the second most influential court in the land.

Who Pays for Human Rights?

It is mildly heartening that the European Parliament “rejected” a bill that “as a human rights concern, abortion should be made legal, safe and accessible to all.” I say “mildly” and use quotes around “rejected” since you’d think calling infanticide a “fundamental human right” would yield zero Yea votes. Nay. The “murder is a fundamental [...]

In particular, the omissions [...]

Abortion and its Evil Twin, Euphemism
