Is The Pro-Life Movement Responsible For Unwed Motherhood?

The debate over the question of values has been a prominent part of American politics since 1968 when the rise of the left-wing counterculture began the process of smothering the authentic voice of the Democratic Party and eventually overran it. The Roe vs. Wade decision in 1973 accelerated the process and another notable benchmark came in 1992 when then-Vice-President Dan Quayle criticized the TV... More

Preying On Fear: Planned Parenthood’s Manipulation Of Expectant Mothers

Rick Perry’s Catholic problem

Perry spoke to pro-life Latinos in California Sunday. Conservatives have been complaining for months that the current crop of presidential aspirants just isn’t that inspiring and they’ve been begging for another candidate to enter the race.
