Composting Humans
By Laurie Higgins   |   09.22.19
What do you get when you cross a “non-religious” person with an eco-freak? You get a devotee of human composting. And by that, I don’t mean humans who compost. I mean humans who are turned into compost—after death, of course. Lesbian Katrina Spade has been promoting the eco-friendly composting of human remains since 2014 when she founded the Urban Death Project, since renamed Recomposed. Get it? Composting humans is recast as re-composing them, kind of like re-purposing them. What the new name loses in forthrightness, it gains in marketability.

Flossmoor 40 Days for Life Leaders Luncheon
08.28.19
Forty-six years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in America through a 7-2 decision in Roe v. Wade. Then in 1992, in a 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court reaffirmed the right to terminate preborn babies in Planned Parenthood...

An April, 2019 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association titled “Attitudes Toward Physician-Assisted Death From Individuals Who Learn They Have an Alzheimer Disease Biomarker” found that  approximately 20% of cognitively normal older adults who had elevated beta-amyloid...

When Humans Don’t Procreate
08.08.19
According to a Pew Research Center analysis, “the world’s [human] population is expected to virtually stop growing by the end of this century, due in large part to falling global fertility rates.” This isn’t a new story (e.g., Ben J. Wattenberg’s 2005 book, Fewer), but it’s worth identifying the reasons for this momentous, unprecedented development.
Stonestreet: The Beautiful Biblical Vision of the Human Person
By David E. Smith   |   08.01.19
“All men are created equal” and “man is created in the image of God”—these two statements are arguably some of the most important concepts in American history and in Christianity, respectively. But what do they have to do with each...
Planned Parenthood Lives Up to Its Bloodthirsty and Racist Reputation
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.25.19
When an organization makes billions of dollars killing babies in the womb, it is clearly a bloodthirsty organization. And when a disproportionate number of those babies are black and Hispanic, it is clearly a racist organization. All this is self-evident...
Illinois Gov. Pritzker’s Top Priority: Dead Babies
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.22.19
In response to the Trump Administration’s effort to ensure federal money is not used in ways that violate federal law, Illinois’ morally repugnant governor, J.B. Pritzker, is now refusing all federal grant money to family planning centers that serve low-income women. Instead, he’s taking an estimated $2.4 million of taxpayer dollars from the underfunded Department of Health to give to Planned Parenthood facilities so they can continue their bloody business. That’s $2.4 million for just the remaining months of the fiscal year. And this on top of the $18.6 million PP received “from state taxpayers between 2009 and 2017.”

Planned Parenthood and the “Trans” Cult
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.18.19
As many have heard, Planned Feticide (known euphemistically as Planned Parenthood) just gave the heave-ho to Dr. Leana Wen as its president. One of the reasons for the unceremonious dumping of Wen after only 8 months on the job is reportedly that she was disinclined to use politically correct language for people who pretend to be the sex they are not and never can be. Perhaps recently elected member of the Planned Parenthood National Board of Directors "Meghan" Stabler—who was elected six months after Wen’s appointment—had a little sumpin' sumpin' to do with that.

More abortion, more gambling, super weed and higher taxes… all courtesy of the Illinois legislature… but wait… there may be more....
Public Nudity and Other Assaults on Decency
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.11.19
Attacks on the virtue of modesty are everywhere and include the easy availability of porn; plays, movies, network television shows, and streaming shows; fashion magazines; and advertising. Too often overlooked are the in-your-face assaults on public decency in our communities. Today, in ascending order of offensiveness and importance we’ll look at five attacks on public decency that receive too little attention: 1. The annual No Pants Subway Ride, 2. The annual World Naked Bike Ride, 3. Shame parades, 4. The promotion of female toplessness, and 5. The “trans”-cultic revolution.
