Samantha Shrugged - Barry Michaels

I teach eleventh-grade religion at a respected and flourishing Catholic college-prep high school in the state of New York. My students are bright and talented kids, the children of some of the most successful people in this part of the state. Our discussions on morality are a window into the culture that nurtures them at least as much as most of their families do. We recently tackled abortion.  Read more...

Secularism and the Deeper Questions of Religion and Society - Iain T. Benson

In France over recent weeks the whole country has been debating the role of religion and the state.  Read more...

Settled Doctrine - Father James V. Schall, S.J.

Seven Deadly Fallacies in Pro-Abortion Argument - Donald DeMarco

It’s said that nobody is pro-abortion.  Even so, the arguments for choice are flimsy at best, and proponents of the "right to choose" position frequently ignore their own logical lapses.   Read more...

Sex, Lies, and Abortion - Dinesh D'Souza

Recently I was invited to speak at a fundraiser organized by a Michigan right-to-life group, which had asked me to reflect on this question: "If the pro-life case is so strong, why aren't we winning?"  Read more...

Sliding Down Rainbows - Terri DeLuca

Still Legal - Kathryn Jean Lopez

This may feel like déjà vu. The Senate has passed a ban on partial birth abortion before — but Bill Clinton was president and vetoed it twice. Now that both the Senate and the House can pass it, and the president has asked for it, it should be relatively smooth sailing. This is an issue that gets beyond the usual abortion-debate divide: Even stalwart defenders of "choice" have realized that partial-birth abortion is infanticide.  Read more...

Talking Abortion - Rev. Frank A. Pavone

Father Frank Pavone, the national director of Priests for Life, explains how best to communicate the pro-life message to others.  Read more...

Technology and Life's Dominion - Sydney Smith

In the thirty years since "Roe v. Wade", science and technology have continued their forward march. Ultrasound has advanced from the grainy black and white shadows of yesteryear to movies in living color. Little wonder that obstetricians are increasingly reluctant to perform abortions. Who, after all, could consider a fetus as life unworthy of living, once they've held its hand?  Read more...

The abortion issue we're ignoring - Barbara Kay

Abortion on demand: empowerment -- or bamboozlement -- of women?  Read more...

The Apple Argument Against Abortion - Peter Kreeft

I hope a reader can show me where I've gone astray in the sequence steps that constitute this argument against abortion. I honestly wish a pro-choicer would someday show me one argument that proved that fetuses are not persons.  Read more...

The Bad Decision That Started It All - Robert P. George & David L. Tubbs

Forty years ago, in Griswold v. Connecticut, the Supreme Court of the United States struck down state laws forbidding the sale, distribution, and use of contraceptives on the basis of a novel constitutional doctrine known as the “right to marital privacy.” At the time, the decision appeared to be harmless.  Read more...

The Bible's Teaching Against Abortion - Fr. Frank Pavone

The Bible clearly teaches that abortion is wrong. This teaching comes across in many ways and for many reasons. Some people point out that the word "abortion" is not in the Bible, and that is true. Nevertheless, the teaching about abortion is there.  Read more...

The bitter irony of sex-selective abortion - Colleen Carroll Campbell

Missouri state Treasurer Sarah Steelman recently earned the opprobrium of abortion-rights advocates by calling for a ban on sex-selective abortions.  Read more...

The Ethics of "Choice" Thirty Years On: The Microcosm of "Regime Change" - Iain T. Benson

The Merchants of Calumny - Donald DeMarco

In all of English literature, perhaps the most dramatic and devastating argument against prejudice is that given by Shylock in The Merchant of Venice. Substituting 'human foetus' for 'Jew' and 'adult' for 'Christian', we can use Shylock's argument to defend the human unborn against his detractors - the merchants of calumny.  Read more...
