Episode 25: How the pre-Roe pro-life movement destroys current pro-choice arguments

Jonathon Van Maren speaks with Dr. Daniel K. Williams, author of two books published by the Oxford University Press. The first, “God’s Own Party: The Making of the Christian Right” and also, “Defenders of the Unborn: The Pro-Life Movement Before Roe v. Wade.” This week’s episode of The Van Maren Show and the second book are absolutely filled with information that everyone in the pro-life movement needs to know about.

 

There is a broad understanding that the pro-life movement was simply a reactionary movement to Roe v. Wade being legalized in the United States in 1973. In reality, this is not the case. History shows that some of the first pro-life laws were passed in the 1800’s in response to the discovery by doctors that life began long before “quickening,” which is when the mother could first feel the baby in the womb. These Protestant doctors stated that these human beings in the womb deserve protection under the law. It's also important to note that it wasn't until much later during the pro-life movement that abortion became associated with the right-wing beliefs.

 

The Van Maren Show is hosted on numerous platforms, including Spotify, SoundCloud, YouTube, and Google Play.

Professor Roberto de Mattei explains the crisis in the Church - Part 2 of 2

On this edition of the John-Henry Westen show we are pleased to bring you the second in a two-part interview with Professor Roberto de Mattei. Described as the greatest historian on the Catholic Church alive today, Professor de Mattei explains how Catholics must respond to the crisis in the Church. "A respectful resistance" is what Catholics need to have at this time in Church history, he argues. Now “is a time for speaking” and to have a “militant spirit” filled with prayer and example.
