A pro-life student group at the University of New Mexico is countering the now typical college "sex week" that promotes such things as BDSM on many American campuses by hosting a week-long series of events that showcase accurate information about sex, pregnancy and sexual assault.
Known as "Real Sex Week" organized by Students for Life UNM, events started Monday and include workshops on STI education, on-campus parental support, and information on the harms of abortion.
Sade Patterson, president of Students for Life UNM, told The Christian Post that Real Sex Week is meant to contrast with the past two sex week events held on the campus. more >>
Both Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders explained their support for keeping abortion legal until a baby is born, though their positions were expressed in different ways.
In separate appearances on the same stage Monday night in Detroit, Michigan, Clinton and Sanders were asked about abortion at the Fox News televised town hall.

"This is the latest in a long history of scandal at Georgetown University," said Patrick Reilly, president of Cardinal Newman Society, a nonprofit that seeks to promote and defend faithful Catholic education. more >>
A New England Episcopal priest who says she aborted an accidental pregnancy while she was in divinity school is now among a group of high-powered pro-abortion women seeking to convince the Supreme Court to ease abortion restrictions.
The Rev. Anne Fowler, who recently retired from her position as rector at St. John's Episcopal Church in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, is among the group of more than 100 women who signed "friend-of-the-court" briefs intended to humanize abortion for the high court for what has been described as the most important Supreme Court battle over abortion in a generation.
Fowler's story appears along with the stories of nine other women in a brief supporting the argument that "reasonable access to abortion is essential for women to be equal participants in society." more >>
Allow me to make an extreme comparison.
Along with their murderous, barbaric policies and practices, the Nazis engaged in serious medical research, and some Nazi doctors, like Prof. Dr. Julius Hallervorden (1882-1965), a famous neurologist who became head of the Neuropathology Department of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Brain Research in 1938, continued to advance their medical research after the Holocaust.
Yet no person in his or her right mind would say, "I hate the fact that these Nazi doctors were involved in torturing and slaughtering so many people, but they helped a lot of people too, so I'm going to be balanced in my criticism." more >>
American abortion advocates are using the Zika virus as an excuse to spread abortion in Latin America. We've seen this movie before.
