Learning to Lament

The Sanctity of Human Life In January 1984, former President Ronald Reagan began a solemn tradition in our country – Sanctity of Human Life Day. Each year on the Sunday closest to January 22, we have the opportunity to collectively mourn the tens of millions of lives that have been lost since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. This year, Sanctity of Human Life Sunday will be held on January 21, and we have the opportunity to come before God as the body of Christ to mourn and cry out to God.

But that was then and this is now, they said. We will do better next time, they promised. Well the next time has arrived and passed and the media has again completely ignored a truly shocking story about...

America’s Extreme Abortion Laws

The Supreme Court vs. The People We know what the majority on the Supreme Court thinks about abortion. But increasingly, the court of public opinion is issuing a different ruling. It hasn’t even been a month since the Supreme Court handed down a decision many saw as a massive setback for the pro-life movement. But new data shows that it’s the supporters of legal abortion, not pro-lifers, who face an uncertain future. PR Newswire reports that the Catholic organization, the Knights of Columbus, conducted a scientific survey of a thousand Americans, 18 and over. And the results were stunning....
