None of this could have happened without you. And now more than ever, we need to make 2018 the strongest year to date for the pro-life movement. With the momentum now on our side, will you join with us in this work to protect life from conception till natural death?

The European Union (EU) has warned Poland not to pass any legislation banning abortion in cases where unborn children are living with severe congenital disabilities.

At times, the most brilliant scientists and mathematicians throughout history have held some of the most preposterous beliefs. For instance, Rene Descartes, inventor of modern analytic geometry and the Cartesian plane, believed the pineal gland was the seat of the human soul. Sir Isaac Newton, the father of classical mechanics, the laws of motion, and co-discoverer of calculus, believed that one could predict the future through hidden secrets written into …

This article originally appeared on Breitbart. As Air Force One lands at the dragon-shaped Beijing International Airport, President Trump will be treated to a skyline that didn’t exist until a few years ago.

This past July, the Committee approved a draft of General Comment No. 36 at its first reading. General Comment No. 36 seeks to reinterpret the ‘right to life’ to exclude the unborn child in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The Human …
