Editorials The media and James Kopp

When word emerged that James Kopp had confessed to being the trigger man in the shooting of Buffalo, N.Y. abortionist Barnett Slepian, pro-lifers throughout North America doubtlessly braced themselves for another flogging at the hands of the mainstream media. In a surprising development, however, that media onslaught never really emerged. The Buffalo News newspaper, whose reporters interviewed Kopp for the confession, followed [...]

Month In Review

Ann Coulter writing in Human Events: "The party formerly known as 'the Democratic Party' will henceforth be doing business under the name 'the Abortion Party.' That would have the virtue of honesty. Love of abortion is the one irreducible minimum of the Democratic Party. Liberals don't want to go to war with Saddam Hussein, but they do want to go to war to [...]
