Remembering ‘Roe’

When Norma McCorvey -- the “Roe” of the eponymous Supreme Court decision – died last month, many obituaries portrayed her as a passive pawn.

Such eulogies, however, should have looked harder at McCorvey, for her journey from abortion proponent to pro-life activist teaches ... (Continue reading)

Anti-euthanasia leaders see as a way for the Liberals ... (Continue reading)
