What’s a “Stork” and Why Do We Care About Saving Them?

In the early days of the pro-life movement, activists used confrontational, sometimes angry, often judgmental, and a seemingly uncaring approach that focused on the baby’s right to life. I’m not at all judging the early pioneers of the pro-life movement because the climate of the 70s and 80s was much different than it is now….

Before every great idea is birthed, there’s usually a moment or series of moments to point out and say, “That’s it.

Intellectual consistency and honesty is very important to me. Unfortunately, however, we live in a clickbait headline-driven world where intellectual consistency and honesty tends to take the backseat. We are seeing this type of faux journalism more and more as our political culture continues to careen into a polarizing heap of nonsense. What is often…

Why This New Mom Thought Pro-Abortion “Expose Fake Clinics” Crusade Was a Joke

When “Jamie” first caught wind of pro-abortion activists’ “Expose Fake Clinics” crusade, she laughed. After all, the campaign’s assertions that pregnancy centers not only lie to and shame women, but even confiscate their cell phones during appointments, were too absurd for someone like Jamie to take seriously.

When a Mother isn’t Prepared for Motherhood

I was unprepared for motherhood. By all appearances most anyone would have suspected I was ready. My pregnancy was no surprise. In fact we had been trying for quite a while to have a child and I wanted so much to be a mother. But I had no idea what was about to happen. I…
