Should Churches Push Contraception?

| May 6, 2012

From Young evangelical leaders at the recent Q conference in DC were asked, as part of a panel on reducing abortions, this question:  “Do you believe that churches should advocate contraception for their single 20-somethings?” The “yes” crowd was 66 percent large. Only 34 percent said no. Wow! What does one make of this? What’s remarkable […]

Yet more reasons for China to change course

| May 2, 2012

From Mercatornet’s Demography is Destiny blog: I thought today that I would follow up Shannon’s blogpost from last week about China’s demographic decline.  This piece from the Economist shows that the inexorable rise of the Dragon will be hindered by its demographic Achilles heel.  According to the UN medium variant population projection, China’s population will […]

Paul Ehrlich – he’s still got it!

| April 28, 2012

Hard to believe this guy is still making “predictions” and claiming he has been accurate in the past when all of his dire prophecies about worldwide starvation failed to come true: What do you know about Paul Ehrlich? If you’re anything like me, probably not a lot more than the following: in 1968 he published […]

Join the Moore family in this timely documentary as they briefly expose the evil history of the birth control movement on the 50th anniversary of “the pill.”  Listen as they transparently share their testimony of how God, in His grace and mercy, opened their eyes in spite of their own sinful beginning.

More Proof That Birth Control May Be Bad News for Breast Cancer

| April 9, 2012

These stats continue to pile up: [R]esearch has gone and found another lovely side effect of the birth control shot: A 50 percent higher risk of breast cancer. Women who used the shot of synthetic hormones for at least a year had double the risk of getting breast cancer, according to the study published in […]

Why the Contraception Debate Isn’t About “Women’s Health”

| March 29, 2012

The hue and cry from the feminist corner during the debate over the Obamacare contraception mandate has painted religious conservatives as backwards, uneducated rubes who are out to prevent women from receiving quality health care. Never mind that the debate is not and never has been over women’s health care. The debate is squarely centered […]

The Long-Term Importance of Fertility

| March 24, 2012

I meant to post something about this during the squall that erupted over Obama’s contraception mandate, but that’s the same week a ship off Mombasa dropped anchor on the cable carrying high-speed Internet into Kenya, and life online slowed down to a crawl. That’s okay. Plenty of other folks took time to comment, both on […]

The “Fourth Trimester” Abortion

| March 24, 2012

For years we’ve been told that the “slippery slope” line of argumentation is a logical fallacy, but recent events are demonstrating that it’s not far to go from contraception to abortion to infanticide in a single generation: While political liberals are busy advancing the fiction of a conservative “war on contraception,” their counterparts in academia […]

The Future of Marriage

| March 24, 2012

Some thought-provoking articles have come through the newsfeed in the past week: Why working class young adults are missing out on marriage ~ For some years, now, researchers at the Institute for American Values have been pointing out that, while the great majority of people still highly value marriage, the meaning of marriage has undergone […]

Unthinkable Thoughts : How feminism deforms intellectual culture

| March 24, 2012

Over the past few weeks, this column has on more than one occasion expressed agreement with Rick Santorum’s view that advances in birth control have had deleterious social consequences, most notably in contributing to the breakdown of the family. To our surprise, a not-insignificant number of our readers have pushed back against this idea, which […]

Satire and Sandra Fluke

| March 24, 2012

I realize the Sandra Fluke story is old news, but Amanda Read’s commentary capably rebuts the nonsensical arguments of feminists who insist that contraception is a “right.” No matter how many layers of sense well-meaning women vainly try to wrap it in, feminism remains a dirty trick that victimizes, objectifies, and degrades women to damsels […]

Obama’s Contraceptive Compromise: A Redistribution of Death

| February 20, 2012

From Doug Phillips’ blog: Several weeks ago, President Obama jumped into political hot water when he issued a regulatory policy under the new health care law, forcing religiously affiliated organizations to pay for healthcare plans that provide free contraception to employees, including the murderous “morning after pill.” Many religious groups found the policy highly offensive, […]

The Coming Demographic Catastrophe

| February 20, 2012

We picked up our local paper last Tuesday to read the lead story: that Kenya would begin a strong contraceptive push to bring down its population growth in the next 20 years. Key to the article was the easy-to-miss one-line admission that foreign aid to East Africa is now dependent on the EA community’s acceptance […]

Unnatural Selection

| February 8, 2012

From Mercatornet: A book by a pro-choice feminist faces up to an unintended consequence of the West’s fertility war. This brave and timely book has many strengths and one glaring, but understandable, weakness. The strength of this book is the reporting. Mara Hvistendahl, a liberal, pro-choice feminist, painstakingly documents the catastrophic consequences of the worldwide […]

Komen and Planned Parenthood: What next?

| February 6, 2012

Watching this unfold has been mind-numbing, yet predictable. Yes, let the Komen disaster be a lesson to anyone thinking of partnering with Planned Parenthood: You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. On that topic, my inside source has checked in, telling me there were advisers who in December thought […]
