When Abortion Politics Overrode Women’s Health
By Terrell Clemmons   |   10.02.19
In 1996, Dr. Joel Brind along with colleagues at Penn State Medical College published a meta-analysis of peer-reviewed literature on the connection between induced abortion and subsequent breast cancer. Based on 23 studies, it found a 30 percent higher rate of breast cancer for women with abortion histories. Six years later, in February 2003, the National Cancer Institute officially declared the abortion breast cancer link nonexistent. Clear-thinking people know risk factors are complex and that study results are subject to interpretation, but which is it? Some say the abortion-breast cancer link is real; some say it’s not. Who should we believe? Hold that thought.

Killing the Unborn, Confessing to Plants
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   09.24.19
I’m all for environmental stewardship, and there’s something to be said for a biblically-based ecology. But I find it beyond ironic that a staunchly liberal seminary which supports a woman’s “right” to abortion held a special chapel service to confess to plants. So, it’s fine to take the lives of unborn babies in the womb, but we must confess our sins to the plants. May God help us.

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...

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.
