Four pro-life women

Abortion advocates often dismiss the pro-life movement as populated by old white men intent on controlling women’s bodies.

In the last month or so we have celebrated the lives of four such women, three who passed away and one who was canonized in the Catholic Church. The most famous ... (Continue reading)

Putting aside the snark, let's look at what Jen Gerson is actually saying. She is making the case that many social conservatives are rethinking political strategy and focusing on the ...

The College Fix reports on an altercation at the University of California, Santa Barbara: A department of feminist studies professor has been accused of going berserk after coming across a campus prolife demonstration that used extremely graphic displays, leading a small mob of students to chant “tear down the sign” before grabbing one of the signs, storming off with it, ...
