Newborn Baby Feet In Parents Hands. Love Simbol As Heart Sign

Is Abortion an African-American Genocide? The Problem with Conservatives Citing Margaret Sanger

sanger

Conservatives want to have it both ways. They argue that progressive support of welfare and affirmative action is racist in that it assumes that blacks need these things to succeed.

Conservatives are, they say, all about restoring black agency and removing the chains of dependency---except, of course, when … [Read more...]

The Totally Unoriginal Atheist Case against Abortion

Fetus Hands
