In the midst of our nation’s commemorations last week of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and on the eve of the anniversary of the tragic Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing child-killing, three members of the family of Dr. Martin Luther King issued a statement (below) declaring that the Beloved Community includes unborn children. Mrs. Naomi Barber King, who married Martin’s younger brother, Rev. A.D. Williams King, was joined by Dr. Alveda King (niece of Martin) and Rev. Derek King (nephew of Martin) in articulating the position that a philosophy of non-violence must oppose violence in all its forms. Therefore, it […]

Must-watch abortion speech by Ronald Reagan

Personhood USA has put together a powerful video featuring a speech by former President Ronald Reagan on abortion. It is a must-watch. “I know what I’m about to say is controversial,” Reagan begins. “But I have to say it.” And say it he does: This nation cannot continue turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the taking of some 4,000 unborn children’s lives every day. One every 21 seconds. We cannot pretend that America is preserving her first and highest ideals, the belief that each life is sacred, when we’ve permitted the deaths of fifteen million helpless innocents. […]

Philly’s ‘House of Horrors’ shows lapse in enforcement of pro-life laws

As a full-time pro-life advocate, few things about the abortion industry surprise me anymore. It is routine for the abortion industry to trample on women in their quest to abort the next generation and profit in the process.   However, Kermit Gosnell’s ‘house of horrors’ clinic in Philadelphia has left even the most hardened observers aghast. After he was charged this week with the murder of seven newborn infants and third degree murder of a female patient, news broke about how his clinic contained flea-ridden cats, dismembered remains of late-term unborn children, and medical equipment suitable only for the closest […]

Second graders perform oral sex in class, and somewhere, Planned Parenthood rejoices

Here is a story on Drudge today that, while truly shocking, is a little less so for coming out of San Francisco: A teacher at Oakland’s Markham Elementary School has been suspended indefinitely after school officials said a pair of second-graders performed sex acts on each other in class…. In one case, several students apparently took off their clothes and were naked in the classroom. In the second incident, a boy and girl reportedly engaged in oral sex in front of their classmates. [District spokesman Troy] Flint indicated that the suspended teacher, whose name was not released by the school […]

Religious girls in long skirts luckier in love?

That’s what Pravda says: Religious women in strict clothes would be laughed at and used as a subject for countless jokes during the beginning of the 1990s. Their secular friends and colleagues did not even want to believe that young women wearing long skirts and handkerchiefs could arrange their private lives successfully. However, as experience shows, girls in handkerchiefs enjoy special demand. The TV series and two motion pictures Sex and the City has earned global popularity for one simple reason. The lives of its main characters are very similar to the fates of millions of lonely woman all over […]
