A Letter to My Daughter’s Birthmother

This piece originally appeared on Secular Pro-Life’s blog and was written by Crystal Kupper. I’ve never met you. I don’t speak your language.

Double Standards on Abortion and Animal Rights

This essay was reprinted with permission from Public Discourse: Ethics, Law and the Common Good and was written by Ligia De Jesus Castaldi.
