Journal of Medical Ethics Authors Advocate “After-Birth Abortion”

I am a hard man to shock. I’ve seen and heard a lot of things. I’ve known people who have been through practically every imaginable kind of suffering. And I’ve been slugging it out in the culture war since I was just a kid. But every now and then I get caught by surprise. What was it that left me so stunned? A commentary by Will Saletan at Slate entitled, “After-birth Abor... More

The Invisible War

In the year 1973, the Cold War was at its height. The United States and the Soviet Union possessed enough nuclear weapons to destroy the earth several times over. Fortunately, Nixon’s policy of détente had brought us back from the brink of mutually assured destruction. Nevertheless, a new war had just begun in that year which has now claimed over 56 million American lives. Many people today are... More

How Far We’ve Come

For the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Texas Alliance for Life has created a video recounting the progress of the Pro-Life movement. Despite many setbacks, the Pro-Life movement–our movement–is a story of hope and promise. In these last 41 years, we have slowly fought back and have won durable and lasting gains to protect the rights of the innocent unborn multitudes that are yet ... More

Everyone’s Three Favorite Things: ObamaCare, Taxes, and Abortion

Next week is the March for Life which is especially meaningful this year, as there are several cases before the Supreme Court during this session that touch on essential questions about the sanctity of life and the relationship of citizens towards our government.

A Critical Abortion Battle Is Being Fought In New Mexico Right Now

You may not have heard about it. I hadn’t until last night. But today in Albuquerque, New Mexico, city residents are voting on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance — a measure that would, according to National Right to Life News, “protect pain-capable unborn children from death by abortion.” This would mean a late-term (20 weeks gestation and later) abortion...

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 ... More

Cardinal Burke: Pelosi Should be Denied Communion

We hear lots of talk about the importance of “dialogue”, and truly the ability to find common ground and converse with those who do not share our Catholic Faith is the basis of evangelization. But Our Lord also commanded His disciples to shake the dust from their feet when they encountered a people who would not listen. (Mt. 10:14) Sometimes, we have to move beyond dialog and into the...

Abortion Clinics Are Closing at a Record Pace

In a world full of troubling stories, it’s always nice to find a bright spot. As it turns out, there’s a pretty significant bit of news on the abortion front: across the country, more clinics have closed this year than in 2012 or 2011, including one right here in my home state of Virginia. From the Baptist Press, via Christianitytodday.com: This year, 42 clinics that provided surgical... More

Old, Good News

Usually, when Huffington Post, The New York Times, and The Daily Beast are giddy with excitement over something the Pope said about abortion, gay-marriage, or contraception, there’s either been a serious misunderstanding or the eschaton is near. For those who haven’t yet heard, America Magazine (and several other Jesuit publications worldwide) has just published a lengthy interview of Pope Fra... More

3 Signs That We’re Winning The Abortion Battle

I wonder if the editorial staff at the Huffington Post regrets the site’s recent poll on abortion? Because it certainly doesn’t support the narrative that sees the Gosnells of the world as an aberration. Apparently, the American people don’t like late term abortion by a pretty overwhelming amount, despite what the radical fringe on the left would have you believe. HuffPo reports:... More
