Saving Social Security and Marriage–and the World!

During his State of the Union address, President Obama made the obligatory reference to “equal pay for equal work” as part of a larger public debate which has been going on for some time now. There have been numerous articles in liberal and conservative publications, countless white papers, and an endless parade of political pundits on cable news trying to diagnose the problems of women in the...

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

Despite many setbacks, the Pro-Life movement–our movement–is a story of hope and promise.

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...

Lies, Libertarians, and the Future: The Virginia Election is a Bellwether for the Nation

It’s Election Day in Virginia. With polls putting the unlikable Terry McAuliffe ahead by six points at the eleventh hour, it’s anyone’s guess how this is going to turn out, but it’s not looking good for lovers of life and liberty. In the mix is no small amount of misinformation. My 16-year-old daughter was assigned a research project for her American Government class, in ... More

A Rallying Cry For Virginia, And For Decency

In less than a week, Virginians will go to the polls to elect a new governor. On the ticket are two contenders: Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia’s current Attorney General — a pro-life, pro-business, small-government, constitutionalist Catholic father of seven children; and Terry McAuliffe, former head of the DNC — a pro-abortion, tax-and-spend, pro-Obamacare, progressive, anti-Catholic&...

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.

ObamaCare’s Hidden Pregnancy Tax

Pregnant? You’d Better Start Saving In the law, what is left unsaid is as important as what is said. Nowhere is this more true than in the thousands of pages of the joyless actuarial jargon, bureaucratic alphabet soup, and onslaught of new taxes that make up the so-called “Affordable Care Act,” more commonly known as ObamaCare. In particular, the omissions of ObamaCare have resulted in a... More

Cystic Fibrosis: A Little-Known Front in the Pro-Life Battle

In a recent online debate I had with someone about abortion, they posed the question: “Do any of your children have cystic fibrosis?” When I responded that I did not, but I have friends who do, the immediate reply was, “So they were ok with bringing a child to term (it can be found in 1st trimester) to live a short life of suffering?” I responded that killing a sick child i...
