How Rich is the Pro-Life Movement?
The Baseless Propaganda For decades, pro-abortionists have painted pro-lifers as a bunch of cruel, rich old white men intent upon controlling women’s bodies and lives (read or watch The Handmaid’s Tale for their depressing version of reality). Their websites and blogs repeat endlessly what Anne Nicol Gaylor alleged in her bizarre 1975 propaganda book Abortion…Read More
Is AIDS a “Gay” Disease?
“HIV is a gay disease.” This is a myth that refuses to die. Misinformation, fear, ignorance and media sensationalism continue to fuel this myth in America. For every one person like me trying to tell the truth about HIV transmission, there seems to be a dozen shrieking, simpleminded, natural-born dullards with a staggering inability to…Read More
Does Legalizing Abortion Stop Filthy, Back-Alley Abortions?
Why All the Talk about Back-Alley Abortions? Before Roe v. Wade led to the widespread legalization of abortion, pro-abortion activists had a problem. The procedure was viewed with extraordinary negativity, and statistics did not back up their various arguments for legalizing abortion. Recognizing that abortion itself was unpalatable to the public, they resorted to a…Read More
Shouldn’t We Permit Abortion Only to Save the Life of the Mother?
Abortion is completely legal in more than one hundred nations. In almost every case, population controllers first drove in the ultra-thin wedge of allowing abortion when the mother’s life is in danger. This is a brilliant strategy for two reasons. First, abortionists can easily stretch any law, no matter how strict or precisely written, into…Read More
How Many People are Homosexuals?
Homosexuality is one in 10. It’s one in 10 on the football team. It’s one in 10 on the baseball team. It’s one in 10 on the softball team. It’s one in 10 on the basketball team. Those are facts. ~Homosexual activist Pat Griffin1 One of the most persuasive arguments that homosexual activists use…Read More
Visualizing Abortion Statistics: Who’s Being Killed and Why?
Yale professor Edward Tufte is an information guru. He travels the world teaching people the art of “data visualization,” or how to most effectively present the power and the beauty of evidence. His work highlights the fact that the battle over social issues is largely one of images that activists from all sides attempt to…Read More
Does Abortion Reduce Welfare Costs?
Supporters of abortion tend to lack foresight and misunderstand human nature. These defects inevitably lead to many cases of the “law of unintended consequences.” One example of this lack of foresight is the claim that when the government pays for a poor woman’s abortion, it saves money by avoiding delivery and welfare costs. In fact,…Read More
Are Aborted Fetuses Used in Cosmetics?
From time to time we hear stories alleging that American abortion mills are selling aborted babies to major cosmetic companies so that they may be “rendered” for their collagen, the main protein component of connective tissue. This rumor is persistent and seems to have a life of its own, but as of this writing, we…Read More
Abortifacient Brief: The Intrauterine Device
The intrauterine device (IUD) is a foreign body inserted into the uterus. IUDs are made of a non-reactive plastic such as polyethylene and may include active chemicals or elements such as progesterone or copper which slowly diffuse into the uterus over a period of several years. Is the IUD Abortifacient? Short answer: sometimes. The…Read More
In essence, [surrogacy] is the ultimate manifestation of the neoliberal project of capitalist commodification of all life to create profit and fulfill the narcissistic desires of an entitled elite. ~Kathleen Sloan, director of the Connecticut chapter of the National Organization for Women.1 What Is Surrogacy? Surrogate motherhood is the oldest form of assisted reproduction.…Read More
