The Huffington Post’s take on youth empowerment

Yesterday, August 12, was International Youth Day. Accordingly, Huffington Post chose to use this occasion to synecdochically equate youth to their reproductive organs. They would have us believe that our human dignity lies in accidental features, instead of in the very essence of who we are. They would have us believe that our empowerment lies […]

No More Abortions for Ireland

A new ruling in Ireland has just declared that an unborn child has constitutional rights to life. This means that abortions are no longer allowed and that every baby has the right to be born.

Freezing Human Eggs: Like Yesterday’s Dinner

When it is thought that a baby is not a human until birth and that a woman has the right to choose, the role of God is taken away and man becomes his own God. The woman is playing God by saying that she has the right to choose life or death; she is throwing […]

The Purpose of Religion According to UNFPA

“Notions that had been held at the alter of religion have been dispelled.” This startling comment was one of many during a UNFPA meeting last week.

Bill Gates the Global Health Czar

WHO is the World Health Organization that directs international health in the UN system. Is it the Director-General, the Executive Board, or is it the Secretariat of WHO that holds the reigns of power? The answer to who has the most power over WHO is not simple.
