The ascendancy of Rees-Mogg is all the more remarkable in that he has never made any secret about his theologically orthodox Catholic beliefs. Tim Farron, ... (Continue reading)

Jim Hughes open letter to Prime Minister

September 29, 2017 Dear Mr. Prime Minister, I expect you will appreciate my bringing to your attention, some very serious allegations you are frequently making, in regard to abortion.

The early pages of The Interim featured advertisements for both Liberals for Life and Tories for Life. By the mid-1990s, there were still dozens of pro-life Liberals in Ottawa and pro-life Democrats in Washington. The ... (Continue reading)

Reviving Perspective

Talk Turkey Josie Luetke A pro-lifer I met leading up to the 2015 federal election said to me, “I don’t care if we all live in mud huts so long as abortion is ended.” Now, nobody wants to live in a mud hut.
