A Very Important Reminder: Tweet #Gosnell

A Constitutional Right: ending up in a bag in a Philadelphia basement

Just a quick post to urge you to Tweet with the #Gosnell tag today. The media has created a deliberate blackout on the story of mass murderer/abortionist Kermit Gosnell because it disrupts their narrative about abortion. I wrote about the story when it first broke, and read the entire Grand Jury Report. It remains the [Read More...]

Girl Scouts, WAGGGS, and Abortion: Still A Problem

disgruntled-girlscout

The most challenging, least satisfying writing I’ve done since I started covering religion was this two part piece on the Girl Scouts. It percolated for months as I sifted through tons of information and tried to figure out just what the Girl Scouts of the USA were doing, if it was compatible with Catholic values, [Read More...]

Our Ongoing Holocaust

By most estimates, the death toll since Roe v. Wade 40 years ago today stands at 55 million people.

In time, I realized what a facile [Read More...]

Planned Parenthood is the Right Hand of Satan

“Dear mommy, please vote yourself the right to kill me.” Perhaps the sickest ad of a sick election season, in which the “products of conception” (to use the “choice” movement’s terminology) beg mommy for the right to get rid of any potential little brothers or sisters. Nothing like having cute little moppets who managed to [Read More...]

Some People Call It a “Choice” …

…which is a nice euphemism for homicide by mutilation. Don’t take my word for it: here’s how a former abortionist describes what he did. If you support abortion, you’re not allowed to look away. Sorry. You don’t get that privilege. You don’t get to wrap yourself in nice little slogans about “women’s rights” and “my body, [Read More...]

Aquinas & More on Boycotting Chinese Products

In a post on the shameful betrayal of Chen Guangcheng at the hands of the US government, the Catholic retailer Aquinas & More reiterates why they don’t carry products made in China: Since Aquinas and More opened we have had a policy that we don’t buy or sell any products from China. We have posted [Read More...]
