Real Choice in a Choiceless Culture

“My body, my choice.” this slogan is the anthem of the pro-choice movement.

Americans have a deep defensiveness when it comes…

Hannah radiates joy. It’s hard to imagine this beautiful young woman shooting heroin and high on other drugs just a year ago.

Pro Life. Pro Women.

You Saved My Daughter: How a Little Hope Makes All the Difference

“It’s a woman’s issue.” “My body, my choice.” “No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her own body.” “Pro-choice, the radical idea that women are people.” These are just some slogans found or chanted at pro-choice demonstrations. Save the Storks believes that all lives matter in the conversation of life….

Do Pro-Lifers Care Too Much About Abortion?

A common charge that is brought against pro-life advocates is that they are too obsessed with abortion. In a way, it is an understandable reaction. The abortion issue is very uncomfortable for a lot of people, so it’s not surprising that most do not want to hear about it very often. The common feeling is…

The practice of tolerance is essential to a peaceful society. Tolerance is defined as “A fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions, beliefs, and practices that differ from one’s own.” Indeed, without deference towards the beliefs and opinions of others—even when we believe them to be incorrect—our world would be in a frantic state of…
