The UN Continues to Push a Radical Abortion Agenda



The new UN report on women makes for grim reading, if you can decipher it. The reason that you may have trouble doing so is that the report, called the World Survey on the Role of Women in Development 2014: Gender Equality and Sustainable Development, is written in a kind of code. Words and expressions are used that sound reasonable—what could be wrong with “gender equality,” for example?—but which, in the femspeak used by the …

What About the Other Korea, the One the Pope Didn’t Visit?

The major cities of South Korea, Seoul and Pusan, gleam like bright jewels, surrounded by a glowing lacework of smaller cities and towns.

One-Child Policy Drives Chinese Father of Four to Suicide



China’s draconian one-child policy has claimed many victims—hundreds of millions of unborn children have lost their lives, tens of thousands of women have died from botched abortions and sterilizations, and tens of thousands more have committed suicide to end the pain of late-term, forced abortions—but Wang Guangrong’s story is particularly tragic.

You Must Abort!



It is hard for persons in democratic societies to grasp how China's party-state can control the fertility of China's millions. The effort starts with a barrage of anti-child propaganda in the schools and workplaces, and then moves to open intimidation in banners and slogans posted in public places. Here are some pictures of the kind of public threats the authorities make against those women who may be pregnant with "illegal" children. 该流不流扒握牵牛 Translation: "If it …
