Why the Prophetic Voice of Pope Paul VI Still Matters

by

Those of us who live in prosperous countries may not realize the full impact of the contraceptive ideology around the world. You know the ideology I mean: everyone old enough to give meaningful consent is entitled to unlimited sex without a live baby showing up.

Pro-Choice Puritans

by

For a very short time, Puritanism was the dominant religion in America. The need to populate a large continent led to lots of immigration of lots of people from different religions.

Sex Is Easy

Sex is easy. Obvious statement, so what’s the point? Birds do it. Beasts do it. Humans do it.

Get the U.S. Out of the United Nations Population Fund

by

The U.S. Government wastes billions on programs and initiatives that American taxpayers don’t want and certainly don’t need. But no example of government waste is more disgraceful than the tens of millions of dollars handed over each year to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)—an organization that for decades has been working hand-in-glove with China’s […]

Celebrating the Bloodlust

When the United States Supreme Court handed down its pro-abortion ruling on June 27 of this year, pro-death groups across the land celebrated. The Court basically struck down two provisions in a Texas law because, in its words, the pro-life restrictions created an “undue burden on abortion access.” Thus the macabre champagne toasts and the […]

Today’s Betrayal of Women by the Female Block on SCOTUS

Why Everyone Should Oppose Surrogacy

I am an outspoken critic of gestational surrogacy, in which the gestational mother carries a child to term for another person or couple. I have noticed that many people do not understand the stakes in this issue. Pro-life people think, “Gosh, surrogacy makes babies, how can that be bad?” Feminists think, “Gosh, surrogacy allows people […]
