Victory for Life and Religious Freedom!

After almost fourteen months since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016, the Senate voted 54-45 to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch as the 113th Justice of the Supreme Court. This confirmation marks a victory for religious freedom and the Constitutional right to life! Whatever one’s opinion of President Trump’s early days in office, […]

Defending the Faith

Harmless message, violent reaction

Spanish NGO “HazteOir” dared to say out loud that boys are boys and girls are girls with an orange bus printed with such surly message. Even if this message may seem a self-evident truth, taught at biology class —which would make it so meaningless and harmless to even care about it—, it caused an unprecedented […]

London’s Tube: Building a Pro-Life Culture

When in London for the first time, there are several things that a tourist must do, including visiting the Tower of London, watching the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, and riding the tube. This past weekend, I made my first trip to London, and as I was riding the tube, something besides it’s […]

Teen Vogue: Making Abortion Appear Glamorous

In the most abhorrent and distasteful way possible, Teen Vogue just proved for good that they do not understand teen girls. Their Post- Abortion Gift Guide, in which they recommend several gifts that a concerned friend can get for a girlfriend who just got an abortion is both contradictory and offensive; it trivializes abortion and […]
