Most people who identify as pro-life are advocates of legal restrictions on abortion.

A saying typically attributed to former President of the United States Dwight Eisenhower goes “Never question another man’s motive. His wisdom, yes, but not his motives.” Unfortunately, it has become commonplace for defenders of abortion to ignore this concept. With the growing toxicity influencing our political discourse every day, bad ideas are given fertile ground […]
My name is Chris, and I’m an alcoholic. Thankfully, a recovering one – though I was not a first-time success story. I got sober through Alcoholics Anonymous, and my most daunting obstacle to working the program’s Twelve Steps of Recovery was embracing a higher power. In trying (and failing) to quit drinking for some time, […]
In 1996, the Clintons used the phrase “safe, legal, and rare” to describe the supposed goal for abortions. Since then, many people have dropped the “rare” from their list of stated expectations, but they have continued to proclaim that they are concerned about the safety of women getting abortions. In fact, a primary purported reason […]
People’s views on abortion are all over the twittersphere again this week, due to a tweet from 2017 by “Strange Planet” creator Nathan W.

Regardless, often in life, we find ourselves forced to make a decision in which either alternative is wrong. Abortion poses such a problem. While it is true that no […]
Pro-lifers are often puzzled at the notion that someone could believe that abortion is morally wrong or bad, perhaps even seriously morally wrong or bad, and yet also believe that abortion should not be criminalized. Along similar lines, pro-lifers are often puzzled by the notion that someone could desire that abortion be rare, and yet […]
Above: an abortion activist attempts to erase women who regret their abortions With the chipper “Shout Your Abortion” movement now an established staple in the pro-choice arsenal, the idea of abortion as a necessary evil has given way to celebration of it. As recently as 2008, Hillary Clinton declared that abortion should be “safe, legal […]
I used to be religiously pro-life. Or rather, I used to be pro-life because I am religious. I’m still pro-life. And I’m still devoutly Catholic. I just don’t necessarily believe the former is dependent on the latter. Being pro-life merely because your religion dictates it puts you in a dangerously tempting position – a position […]
