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
The state legislature of North Dakota has stood up for fundamental human rights and on Friday passed two of the most far-reaching pro-life bills since Roe vs. Wade. No one knows whether Governor Jack Dalrymple will sign the bills, but the governor is irrelevant—the rights of the unborn were passed with veto-proof majorities.
North Dakota’s pro-life legislation bans abortion after six weeks of ... 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
On Tuesday, Roll Call ran a story about a political group striving to capture a youthful image, and in so doing, find relevance and resonance in one of the most hotly contested political issues of our age.
The group in question? None other than the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League — known to most as NARAL Pro-Choice America.
The problem that NARAL has is simple: it... More
Abortion does not save lives. It ends them. 55 million over the past 40 years to be precise.

Just how did it save his life? you’re probably wondering.
I’ll let Mr Neblett explain:
15 years [ago] I was in a committed relationship with... More
New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo will likely run for President in 2016. His favorability ratings are at record highs, he’s led some of the most productive legislative sessions in New York state history and he can deliver an impressive speech – a not so unimportant skill in this day and age.

At this point it’s impossible to tell if he’ll win, but ... More
Just as we approach the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the ruling political party in Ireland is trying to erode legal protection for those Irish in the womb.
But this attempt to attack Ireland’s pro-life laws is not going unanswered. In fact, over 30,000 Irish rallied in support of keeping Ireland safe for the unborn.

From Time's coverage.
The Jan. 14 cover of Time Magazine states, “40 Years Ago, Abortion-rights Activists won an Epic Victory With Roe v. Wade. They’ve Been Losing Ever Since. “
Of course Time magazine is right. It is axiomatic, it is the story of our times, it is the thing every pro-lifer knows: We’re winning this battle.
I can’t understand why colleagues of mine are doubting this... More
You’ll never believe he said it.
President Obama is responsible for some of the most moving pro-life rhetoric I’ve heard:
This is our first task: caring for our children. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged.
[. . .]
If there’s even one step we can take to save a child, then surely we have an obligatio... More
If the members, teachers and leaders of the Catholic Church truly applied the Church’s teachings to life issues, marriage, religious freedom and immigration what would our church look like?
