    UNCW has long been committed to a philosophy of multiculturalism, which suggests that all truth is relative. (But who knows if that's really true!). It is the kind of worldview that allows us to turn a blind eye to evil simply by denying that evil exists. It also allows us to maximize sexual liberty by renouncing all forms of moral judgment. Unfortunately, two of UNCW’s feminist administrators have veered off the script and become moral crusaders in the name of "reproductive justice" - much to the embarrassment of the hire administration (author's note: that last ms-spelling was intentional as was...

    I have a new poll question up: How often does your pastor preach against abortion annually? Most pro-lifers I know complain their pastor doesn’t talk about the abortion issue enough. So how often is that? Vote on the lower right side of the home page. (Is your pastor resistant? Have him/her read what Franklin Graham thinks.) In the last poll, 90% thought Emily Letts’ “abortion video” damaged the pro-abortion brand… Emily Letts poll - abortion video hurt pro-choice movement As always, make comments to either the previous or current poll here, not on the poll site.

    Equal protection under the law for pre-born human beings is headed our way - and from the work of a surprising demographic: adults under 30. A 28-year old dynamo working on college campuses across the nation, Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life, exemplifies why hers is the "pro-life generation". Kristan feels deeply the loss of nearly one-third of her age group. “The undeniable fact is that nearly a third of my generation was killed by abortion. We are missing brothers, sisters, cousins, friends, husbands and wives…. But [we’re] determined to set it right. We’ve seen the ultrasounds of our...

    Speaking at a conference on Thursday, Texas Governor Rick Perry offered some powerful words of wisdom about the moral imperative of protecting innocent human life. As you’ve probably heard, earlier this week State Senator Wendy Davis (D-TX) garnered national headlines when she staged a ten hour filibuster to raise awareness about “women’s health issues” and draw attention to a so-called "anti-choice" bill that would ban abortions in Texas after 20 weeks gestation. Never mind that 62 percent of women in the Lone Star State support such a measure -- or that 68 percent of Americans nationwide oppose second trimester abortions...

    Justin Bieber with his mom, Pattie Mallette. HOLLYWOOD, January 22, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – An anonymous "longtime associate" of teen idol Justin Bieber has implied there is a split between the star and his mother over the issue of abortion. His mother, Pattie Mallette, recently signed on as executive producer of Crescendo, a film that promotes the pro-life message by presenting the life of Ludwig van Beethoven. She is also trying to raise $10 million to benefit crisis pregnancy centers, like the one that saved Justin's life. The unnamed source told the Chicago Sun-Times on Sunday that “Justin just is very...

    Americans witnessed a remarkable drama this week when some of our most exalted politicians frantically scrambled to reassure voters that they, too, believed that the United States ought to permit the deliberate killing of at least some innocent human beings. They apparently did so to persuade the public they are caring, compassionate and -- above all -- reasonable people. The drama started when Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee in the U.S. Senate race in Missouri, expressed his view that no innocent human being ought to be deliberately killed. However, that was not the only thing Akin expressed. "What about...

    This is not a good week to be a journalist. Watching the massive 24/7 coverage of the massacre in Aurora, Colo., coverage that will only serve to inspire some future twisted male mind to seek infamy -- to die hated but not unnoticed -- one cannot help but be disgusted. As journalists, it's understood to be our duty to do things like call up a mother in San Diego to inform her that her son killed 12 people, all so we can then report endlessly on what her cryptic response means or did not mean. Airtime must be filled; an...

    Barbara Castro Garcia July 13, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – One day early in 2010, newlyweds Ignacio Cabezas and Barbara Castro Garcia were sitting in a café eating breakfast. The couple both had smiles on their faces that, in the words of Ignacio, were “impossible to erase.” After 11 years of dating, the couple had gotten married several months before, and now they had just found out they were expecting their first child. “We were crazy about getting married and once married, we wanted very much to be parents,” Ignacio remembers. Little did they know that this pregnancy, which had already brought...

    For decades, Democrats have had success in portraying Republicans as being a party of older white males. They have often portrayed us as insensitive to the needs of our weakest citizens – most notably women and children. Recently, President Obama played the latter card as he announced a new policy on illegal immigration. He predicated his announcement of amnesty for the children of illegal aliens by saying we are a “better nation” than one that deports innocent children. For a moment, I thought he said we were a “better nation” than one that aborts innocent children. Unfortunately, I was...

    The United Nations recently published its two-yearly update of world population projections. These suggest that Nigeria could rise to 725 million people by 2100. Western media are shrilly calling for Nigeria to put a check on her population growth. No way, sorry. We Nigerians are rejoicing. Africans love children. First for financial security. In the past children helped in the farms and the more of them the better. Today, with little or no social security, children are needed to support their parents in old age. Their contributions constitute an informal pension scheme. And having more children means a better pension....

    Eight years ago, Nial Cox Ramirez stood up in a Raleigh conference room and bared her soul about the pain she endured after North Carolina forcibly sterilized her in 1965. "I tried so hard to bury this, but it just won't go away. It's like a cancer that eats you and eats you and eats you," she said on that March afternoon. On another afternoon 38 years before, in a building just a few miles away, five strangers had voted to have her sterilized. The Eugenics Board of North Carolina, a bureaucracy oblivious to the pain it caused its victims,...

BIRMINGHAM, UK, February 17, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - One British cancer patient has sent a powerful message about the value of life after she refused aggressive treatment for her leukemia in an effort to save the life of her unborn daughter – who was, in fact, born perfectly healthy last April. “My doctor told me I needed to make a choice and decide whether I should keep my baby. To me, there was no decision to make,” Victoria Webster, 33, told...

    Just a quick little AAR. Wow!Just got back from that Mass. I have gone to the Vigil Mass almost every year since 2000. This had to be the most crowded I have ever seen it. The seating capacity of the Shrine is 3,500 and the normal SRO capacity is 6,000. This event violated all possible fire codes, even DC's fire code. My guess is that there had to be 8,000 - 9,000 in the upper church and probably another 1,000 - 2,000 in the lower level (memorial hall + crypt church). I would not be surprised if my guesses turned...

    www.catholicnewsagency.com Former President Bush's memoir will highlight influence of Pope John Paul II Pope John Paul II and President George W. Bush Washington D.C., Oct 30, 2010 / 07:21 am (CNA).- An early preview of President George W. Bush's forthcoming memoir “Decision Points,” has revealed that the book will discuss the former president's relationship with Pope John Paul II—especially the Pope's influence on his decision to restrict embryonic stem cell research. The Pontiff and president met publicly in 2001, 2002 and 2004, for discussions that displayed both profound agreements and serious differences between the two men. On October 28,...

    There is a near universal acclaim for the pastoral visit of the successor of Peter to the United Kingdom. The crowds, the depth of his messages in every venue, the obvious hunger of the faithful for the truth of the ancient faith, all added together to make this trip both memorable and historic. However, though Pope Benedict has physically departed and returned to Rome, the mission he elaborated in this historic four day visit has only just begun. It is the New Evangelization of the Church in the United Kingdom and then, through her, the unfolding of a new missionary...

    Kim Illions says it took her four months to grasp that Cole, her unborn son, had been diagnosed with hydrocephalus—water on the brain—at 20 weeks. "I cried every single day," said the mother from Iselin, N.J. "I didn't want to have a baby shower. I didn't want to decorate the room, because I thought that I was bringing home a baby—if I was even bringing home a baby—who was going to die." Every day, parents like Illions and her husband hear dire news couched in clinical terms like "incompatible with life," "no quality of life," and "termination of pregnancy." Many...
