Think of franchises, and McDonald’s or Starbucks springs to mind. But how about franchising clinics that do abortions and sterilizations? The population control movement has thought of this too.

Obama will soon be ensconced in the Oval Office, with all the people who helped put him there lined up outside for goodies.

23 July 2008 Vol. 10 / No. 29 People of Faith Beware: The Left Has Decided That There Is No Right To Have More Than One Child The right to procreate goes back to the very beginning of time, and is part of our very nature. “Be fruitful and multiply,” it should be recalled, was the first commandment given to our first parents. Even Malthus himself, the original population scaremonger, admitted that natural law …
