Why We Need the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act



WARNING: This article contains graphic testimonies and descriptions The Final Report of the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives in 2016 revealed many shocking details about the abortion industry in America.

Is America Running Out of Elbow Room?



For many Americans, it’s not uncommon to see another new mega-shopping center or residential subdivision being built somewhere nearby. With new houses and businesses springing-up all the time in urban and suburban America, should we view this as progress, or are we approaching the point where we are starting to run out of space? If you’ve every wondered if we’re running out of elbow room, here’s an interesting thought experiment. New York City, which is …

California’s Assisted Suicide Law: Are Some Lives Not Worth Living, or are All Lives Precious?



At what point can we say that a life no longer matters? Is it at the point when medical expenses become too costly or burdensome for relatives? Is it at the point when someone feels they have outlived their usefulness, or are just not able to do the things they love to do anymore? For California lawmakers, it seems that their answer to all these questions would be a resounding yes. They are terribly mistaken, …

The New York Times Throws in the Towel on “Overpopulation”



My guess is that you, gentle reader, will be as astonished as we were by the top-of-the-website New York Times article discrediting the population alarmism of the past fifty years. In “The Unrealized Horrors of Population Explosion” the newspaper has finally (several decades too late) thrown population control on the ash heap of discredited ideas.

A Crime in Time—and Again



California has a long-history of eugenics, and it is easy to condemn the eugenics laws that the Golden State passed in 1909 and implemented until 1952. These sterilizations were visited upon “the unfit” in mental hospitals, upon the uneducated, and upon non-white minorities in disproportionately high numbers. Who would now condone the coercive and forcible sterilization—with state approval—of over 20,000 men and women? Yet despite the unanimous modern condemnation, non-consensual sterilization of those deemed “unfit” …

Green Guilt and Population Control



If asked what function the San Francisco-based Sierra Club performs, most of its 1.3 million members would probably reply “protecting the environment,” or “raising awareness of endangered species,” or words to that effect. Yet, in their 2007 legislative report for Minnesota, the Sierra Club spent nearly three pages describing legislative initiatives that have virtually nothing to do with the environment.
