The One Child Policy Drives Human Trafficking in China
TPincus
To this day, China’s atrocious One-Child policy has resulted in 400 million forced abortions and sterilizations.Due to a cultural preference for sons, baby girls are more likely to be aborted or killed shortly after birth. In 2012, it was estimated that there were 40 million more men than women in China. This gender imbalance has created a high demand for women which has lead to even more human rights abuses in China, like human trafficking.China was given the lowest ranking in the U.S. State...Read More

claire_1
On Tuesday, abortion advocates in Austin, Texas defeated a pro-life bill that would’ve protected the lives of unborn children 20 weeks and older.  Democrat state senator Wendy Davis led the charge against defenseless unborn babies.  It’s sometimes interesting to examine the leaders and supporters of a particular movement.  Leaders of the Civil Rights Movement, like Martin Luther King, Jr. organized peaceful protests and civil disobedience to fight the injustice of segregation;...Read More

On Tuesday, the Red River Women’s Clinic, North Dakota’s last remaining...Read More

H.R. 1797: Pro-women, Pro-life
christina
During the House Debate for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and in its aftermath, abortion supporters evaded the scientific reality that abortion inflicts excruciating pain on babies by hiding behind their go-to “war on women” slogan. Although I firmly believe that we cannot and should not ignore the unborn victims of the abortion industry, I also believe H.R. 1797 is—in and of itself—a crucial piece of pro-woman legislation. On June 17, 2013 the Obama administration released an...Read More

Barbara Lee (D-CA) told the House: “When you consider the subject at hand, women’s right to a medically safe abortion, we once again see men taking leadership roles in invading the privacy and medical...Read More
