Abortion

What I Learned About Pro-Life Women After I Had An Abortion by Deanna Falchook - "I saw pro-life women as misinformed ultra-conservatives who groveled at the feet of their husbands and couldn't think for themselves. Until I met some."

John Irving’s Abortion Arguments – The Moral Relativism of “Cider House Rules” by John Stonestreet & Roberto Rivera – “The 1999 movie ‘The Cider House Rules’ won writer John Irving an Oscar, and elevated him as a pro-abortion apologist. In his acceptance speech, Irving thanked Harvey Weinstein’s movie company Miramax for ‘having the courage to make this movie.’ He then thanked the Academy for honoring a movie about abortion, as well as ‘everyone at Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Rights League.’ Last week, twenty years later, in a recent New York Times op-ed, Irving once again took up the role of pro-abortion apologist, and in the process, exposed just how incoherent his particular pro-abortion argument really is.”

Bioethics

Worldview and Culture

“Gay Pride” Month — “LGBTQ” Support Declines by Matt Alexander – “The outcome of their ‘being visible and vigilant’ is precisely why their support is dropping.”

Why We Need Monuments To Washington And Jefferson More Than Ever by Dennis Weisman - "History should be taught and scrutinized, but should never be sanitized, at least not in a country that aspires to learn from its imperfect past."

Left Amps Up Justifications For Violence Against Their Political Opponents by Ellie Bufkin - "The left's new extremism condones assaulting conservatives in public. Antifa's attack on a journalist is yet another example that our norms have changed."

My Most Reliable Ministry Tool: Keeping My Mouth Shut by Chris Nye - "In a world of noise, people need us to listen with God’s ears."
