All for One and One for All
Santina
What happens when some groups are no longer seen as important as other people? Freedom has obligations. Soldiers in the American War of Independence and our service men and women today still continue to fight so that others may experience the freedom that they enjoy. People travel across the country every January for the March for Life to advocate for the rights of the unborn. We as a people have worked and must work tirelessly to promote the freedoms entitled to each individual of our society...Read More

New Poll Shows Obama's Approval Down With Young Voters
Anne Morse
Students for Life of America release a new, buzz-worthy poll this morning. Young people are not excited about President Obama! Four years ago, the President’s new emotional campaign appealed to young voters. Today’s poll, however, shows a 13 point drop in his approval among these young voters since last election cycle. While a recent Gallup Poll showed record low numbers of self-identified pro-choicers, the youth vote generally is more pro-choice. Today’s Students for Life poll, however, shows...Read More

Oh Baby, Baby
Anne Morse
When asked his views on abortion, the teenage pop sensation, Justin Bieber flicked his famous hair back and said, “I don’t believe in abortion, it’s like killing a baby.”While he may not become the intellectual figure head of the pro-life movement any time soon, Mr. Bieber does have an important role to play in our culture. Abortion is the top issue in an immense division known as “the culture wars.” While politics, legislation, economics, and science play a role in the pro-life battle, culture...Read More

No one supports forced abortion, because it is not a choice. And this violence must stop.”Reggie introduces two points. Firstly, she argues that China’s policy violates the will and consent of mothers....Read More

Abortion: Independence or Oppression?
Santina
According to most feminist ideology, legal abortion frees women from limiting their career goals to care for an unwanted child, increases their independence, and puts them on equal terms with men. However, modern feminists and society as a whole often overlook the fact that the availability of abortion on-demand makes women the subject to the desires of others.Its legalization allows husbands, boyfriends, families, and even other women advocating in the name of “liberation” and “feminism”...Read More

A Brave New World Has Arrived
Anne Morse
The U.K.’s Telegraph reports that with a quick blood sample from a pregnant mother and a saliva test from the father, doctors can now screen for 3,500 genetic disorders of the child. While some parents will use the testing to prepare to best accommodate their special needs child, other parents will participate in a new form of eugenic abortions.  Many may argue the benefits of aborting such children so that, “every child is a wanted child.” Genetic testing, however, will instead...Read More

In the Name of Feminism
Anne Morse
To the chagrin of pro-life advocates, the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), which would ban sex-selective abortions in the U.S., failed to pass Congress last week. Opponents of the bill varied in their rationale. Some, like radically pro-abortion Congresswoman Diana DeGette, argued that sex-selective abortion does not occur in the U.S. On the other hand, some so-called “feminist” groups admit that sex-selective abortions occur in the U.S. but argued that such legislation would place an...Read More
