The Stream’s “#100forLife — One Hundred Hours of Remembering the Millions Denied Their First Baby’s Breath”

Starting at 9 a.m. EDT today, marking this weekend’s 100-year anniversary of the founding of Planned Parenthood, America’s leading abortion provider, my colleagues and I at The Stream are unleashing #100ForLife, a 100-hour flood of articles and stories that focus on the blessings of life and the tragedy of Planned Parenthood. We’re also launching a 100 hour prayer vigil. Please see the details here. And please read, pray, tweet, pray, post, pray, spread the word, and of course, pray. Image Credit(s):…

Corrected Article

Corrected Article

As comments 4 and 5 indicate, I wrote this article without checking facts first as I should have.   The core of this particular argument was based on my belief that large proportions of Planned Parenthood government funds were used for abortions. That is not correct.   I stand firmly with my position that abortion in general is self-centered and a sin against the next generation.  It’s mostly a matter of teens and adults killing defenseless children for the sake of…

Abortion’s Other Death

Abortion’s Other Death

The fog of multiple deadlines and of recent foot surgery is clearing—barely, yet noticeably. I’m on final editing for my next book, which was unexpectedly difficult for a while, but got smoothed out when another editor took over at the publisher’s. I’m learning to walk again on a foot whose muscles are very unaccustomed to being asked to do anything. Anyway, things are improving for me. I think this time (maybe!) when I pick up the pace on this blog…

The Range Master and the Doctor: A Parable About Abortion

The Range Master and the Doctor: A Parable About Abortion

You’re on a firing range holding a loaded pistol. The target area is curtained off, all but a piece of cardboard standing about three and a half feet tall, cut in the shape of a little girl, no more than five yards down the range. The range master says to you, “See that cardboard there? There’s a girl behind the curtain who’s about that tall. We’ve told her to walk behind the cardboard any time she wants to during the…

Irony and Intolerance On Campus: Case Study at UNC Wilmington

Irony and Intolerance On Campus: Case Study at UNC Wilmington

So there was this student group at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, you see, that was hosting a campus discussion on abortion. Maybe they should have known better than to have tried. It’s a rancorous issue everywhere, with religion right at the heart of the dispute, and of course everyone knows that one side of this debate in particular is pretty hard to get along with. Its people are closed-minded. They believe what they believe, and they won’t listen…

Stand Firm!

Stand Firm!

Anthony Esolen speaks with astonishing accuracy and breathtaking power in the current Touchstone. (Did you notice I’ve begun advertising Touchstone here? Esolen is one reason you should read it.) After a short history lesson on the Arian controversy, he goes on to say, In our day, the issue is not Christology. We’re not so sophisticated in our heresies. The issue is sex. We’re encouraged to pretend that the child-making act is not essentially ordered to child-making. We must pretend that…

“America’s War On Children”

“America’s War On Children”

David Marshall is an outstanding writer, both in print and on his blog. But this is exceptional: America's War on Children: ….it is the duty of the Church to call our nation to repentance, nonetheless. That sin is no longer racial, but generational. We are gravely sinning against our children. The issue that comes to mind for many Christians, when I say that, will be abortion. But let me propose that abortion, including partial-birth abortion, is not the only or…
