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
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
The Texas State Legislature has reconvened in special session to take up legislation protecting the rights of the unborn after protesters overran the statehouse last week to prevent the Senate from coming to order to even bring the legislation to a vote. Having failed to win over the voters of Texas to their grotesque position, the pro-abortion faction now seeks to intimidate the elected represent... More
After relentless and vociferous criticism from feminist organizations, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius has abandoned her opposition to the over-the-counter sale to minors of the so-called “Plan B” contraception pill which can also be used to cause the abortion of a fertilized egg. This cowardly retreat by Secretary Sibelius is hardly surprising, but it is nevertheless rev... More
Though the media blackout on Kermit Gosnell was well-maintained until the verdict was announced, the dam finally broke at the end. Bit by bit, an increasing percentage of the population became aware. By necessity, once the horror of the Gosnell’s atrocities were in plain view, it was time for damage control. Forced to cover his crimes, the pro-abortion members of the media dutifully informe...

The Washington Post now reports that officials at the highest levels of the Internal Revenue Service were aware of the program to target conservative organizations applying for tax-exempt status prior to the 2012 elections but that they remained silent. The deliberate and shocking targeting of conservative organizations that sought tax-exempt status stands in contrast to government collusion wit... More
As the smoke clears and the wounded are tended to following the horrific bombing in Boston yesterday, the case of America’s most prolific serial killer, Kermit Gosnell, has been once again pushed to the back of our collective consciousness. Yesterday’s tragedy, so raw and present in the minds of post-9/11 Americans, leaves little room in our thoughts for the details of Gosnell’s... More
I think we have, in our hands, an achievable way of changing America in a way that will seem as sudden and earth-shaking as the 1960s civil rights revolution or the 1989 anti-Communist revolution.
But first I think it’s important to give some context. What needs to be saved about the American culture in the first place? The family.
A nation is only as strong as its foundation, and for a society,... More
It’s worth noting, isn’t it? That if Romney had won the election, there would be no talk of false ‘accommodations’ with the HHS mandate. The mandate would be gone.
And we also wouldn’t have this…
The President of the United States recorded a message for NARAL Pro-Choice America, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on Tuesday.

The list of Democrats who were once pro-life but abandoned women and children in order to grab political power is sadly very long.
Ted Kennedy, Al Gore, Dick Durbin, Dick Gephardt, Dennis Kucinich…
…and now Rep. Stephen Lynch.
You see, there’s a Senate race in Massachusetts now that John Kerry is over at the State Department. Lynch was once pretty solid on life, but over the year... More
