Joanna Alphonso: As if it were not enough for adults to be bombarded with pro-abortion slogans such as “my body, my choice,” or “abortion is empowering,” and even “abortion is a human right!” now children can be propagandized, too.  According to a Rewire News Group article, author Carly Manes came up with the idea for a childrens’ book, What’s an Abortion Anyway?, [...]

The cancel culture pandemic

Sarah Gangl Amid the chaotic COVID-19 pandemic, it has been easy to lose sight of a societal pandemic that attacks our morals, rights, and freedoms as pro-life individuals. This pandemic is none other than the cancel culture, which involves shaming and punishing those whose comments, ideas, or beliefs are contrary to the mainstream narrative and considered offensive. Social media platforms and news [...]

A choice of voices

John Henry Newman once wrote that mankind’s most vivid and proximate experience of God is the phenomenon of conscience. He argues that the feelings that accompany moral action yield a “picture of a Supreme Governor, a Judge, holy, just, powerful, all-seeing, (and) retributive.” The Abrahamic religions, grounded as they are on the Decalogue, affirm this deep and universal intuition: God is a [...]
