Abortion, Left and Right

This recent “debate” over abortion and government regulations shows the insanity of both the “left” and the “right” in today’s society. The left consists of people who insist that a right to abortion includes the right to have it paid for — including by people who think it’s murder. The self-evident tyranny of such a […]

Questions About Abortion

Abortion Opponent: I don’t believe abortion is moral. The fetus is a conscious, sentient individual. It enjoys the inalienable right to life just as all human beings do. Abortion should be illegal – because it’s murder. Dr. Hurd: A fetus is a potential human individual; not an actual one. This is glaringly obvious in the […]

Abortion and the Death of Dr. George Tiller

Police have announced an arrest in yesterday’s murder of Wichita, Kansas, Dr. George Tiller.
