Abortion advocates are angry about a bill, recently passed by the Utah state senate, that imposes penalties on people who perform abortions on themselves.

SecularProLife.org is joining Dr. Gerard Nadal’s blog, Coming Home, in a study of EMBRYO: A Defense of Human Life, by Robert P. George and Christopher Tollefsen. The book argues for unborn human rights without resorting to religious appeals. Starting March 16, Nadal will discuss one chapter each Tuesday. Each entry will be cross-posted here. This […]
As you’re probably aware, Chile just experienced a major earthquake. Fortunately, it has not caused nearly as much devestation as last month’s earthquake in Haiti. The Chilean government has not yet requested international aid. Still, we must take this seriously. 147 lives have already been lost, and if we do not act quickly to restore […]
Bryan Kemper of Stand True: Christ-Centered Pro-Life invited me to answer today’s weekend question on the role of religion in the pro-life movement.

A while back, my favorite satirical news site, The Onion, put up a video playing off of the debate over regular and conflict-free diamonds. The analogy: decorative baby skulls. Consumers should make sure they were “harvested responsibly,” and not “illegally.” (This is my first attempt at embedding video, so please be patient. If it doesn’t […]
In response to Obama’s announcement of a new health care reform proposal, which would contain considerable funding for abortion, Live Action has released a new video from its Mona Lisa series, showing a Wisconsin Planned Parenthood failing to report an obvious case of statutory rape. This is the tenth video in the series. As Live […]
