Cardinal Dolan: It’s abortion advocates who are ‘obsessed’

New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan has come out saying that it’s the “other side” that is “obsessed” with abortion, not pro-life advocates. “They’re so obsessed with it that they want to expand it even more!” Dolan told National Review in advance of the national March for Life in Washington.

Canada’s National March for Life and gendercide

It is just over a month until the National March for Life in Ottawa (May 9). The theme this year is gendercide. The Interim and LifeSiteNews.com have both ran promotional stories. In light of the political maneuvering that took place in recent weeks to scuttle Mark Warawa's private member's motion (M408) and the political fallout, it might seem that a rally and march tied to the issue of a motion deemed non-votable is less relevant, but in fact ...

40 years of Roe v. Wade

40 years of Roe v. Wade

Jan. 22 marked the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a raw act of judicial imperialism that took the abortion issue out of the democratic realm and away from states, and ruled that abortion would be legal in all of the United States. The decision reverberates four decades later, affecting abortion policy, electoral politics, and the lives of millions of people touched by abortion. In the 1960s, many states began liberalizing their abortion ... (Continue reading)
