In the Netherlands, a traditional family with a sole breadwinner and a stay-at-home mom may be required to pay as much as 557 percent more in taxes than a household with the same income where both spouses work—simply because one of the two …

Young women are being taught to use the Morning-After Pill, but are deliberately not being told how it works. At the same time, they are deliberately not being taught how to use Natural Family Planning, or NFP, which—even the CDC now admits—does work. For years, the Population Research Institute has warned about the dangers of contraception. Our founder, Father Paul Marx, O.S.B, never tired of explaining that the morning-after pill is an abortifacient. By design, it ends …

But among the biggest reasons are the rising costs of childrearing. Over just the past 20 years alone, the cost of raising a child has skyrocketed by over 40 percent. Moreover, the cost of giving birth in some …

Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 decision that legalized abortion in all fifty states. With two new conservative justices having been added to the Supreme Court under President Donald Trump, pro-lifers are optimistic that the Supreme Court, with its new conservative majority, may scale back or overturn Roe if presented with the opportunity. In many states where pro-life lawmakers hold …

The U.N. Human Rights Committee has taken broad aim at pro-life laws and policies in the United States. Meeting last month, the Committee called on the Trump administration to “review” a number of its pro-life policies, suggesting that these were incompatible with international law. The Committee singled out for criticism President Trump’s Mexico City Policy, his executive order “Protecting Free Speech and Religious Liberty,” and his executive order which protects religious employers like the Little …
