Fetus Is Suddenly a Baby When We Want It to Be

Remember the videos that showed Planned Parenthood VIPs discussing making money for organ harvesting? Planned Parenthood defenders made a big deal because they said one of the videos showed a dead premature baby while it talked about an aborted fetus. The only difference between them was the cause of death, but they pretended this was fraudulent.

The Drive for Ethnic Diversity Takes a Wrong Turn

ABC’s ‘Scandal’ Shows Abortion as Sacred Experience

Modern liberalism has been compared by some people to a religion, and abortion has been said to be its sacrament. ABC seems to have unwittingly demonstrated that point with an episode of its show “Scandal” in which the main character, Olivia Pope, played by actress Kerry Washington, has an abortion. The scene is one of the most horrifying I’ve ever seen on television, and I’m a “Walking Dead” fan.

The most effective way to destroy a land is to collapse it at its foundations, and the most fundamental building block of any civilization is the family. As the family goes, so goes everything else.

Public Prayer and the Result, “Woodlawn”

Video Column: I don’t have TV nor do we watch TV in the MacAulay household, but recently I caught a short clip on theBlaze.com of a former TV child star Candace Cameron-Bure on a show called “The View” where they were discussing the story about a high school football coach who recently defied a lawsuit threat demanding he stop praying on the field after games.
