Remember those so-called "experts" who assured us that condoms would cut rates of fertility and STDs? Well, they now face a conundrum.
Those who've pushed condoms like candy in public schools have given us any number of rationales. They told us that young people "are going to do it anyway," so more condoms would equal fewer pregnancies. They also said that more condoms would lead to fewer STDs, or sexually transmitted diseases. And as they proceeded to pass out condoms by the handful to our school-age children, they told us that religion and morality should be left out of it, in the name of public health and, of course, science.
New research, however, suggests these prophets of prophylactics were wrong — desperately wrong — and that it's time for a fresh look at the issue. more >>
A Chinese woman who is eight-months pregnant is reportedly being threatened by the Communist government that if she doesn't abort her baby, she and her husband will lose their government jobs.
Women's Rights Without Frontiers, a human rights group speaking out against coercive population control in China, has slammed the "human tragedy and appalling injustice" of the case.
The original story was reported by Shanghai online news portal Sixth Tone, which features an interview with the couple, surnamed Zhong, who both have a child from a previous marriage. The couple believed they could still have a child together under the new Two-Child policy, but the laws in the province of Guangdong turned out to be different from what they were expecting. more >>
Pro-abortion forces should be careful what they wish for, especially when it comes to Christian hospitals.
A recent poll by the Pew Research Center found that the percentage of Americans who "think" that religion plays a role in solving important social problems "has fallen significantly" in the past fifteen years.
In 2001, 75 percent of those polled said that religious institutions played such a role in our society. By 2016, the percentage had dropped to 58 percent. more >>
An incredible video showing the development of babies inside their mothers womb appeared in a report titled "The Secret Lives of Babies" on NBC's "Today Show," outlining what happens inside "Hotel Uterus" during those nine months before birth.
"Have you ever wondered how they spend their time while hanging out in Mom's belly?" reporter Savannah Guthrie, who happens to be pregnant herself, asks.
The episode first aired two years ago, July 31, 2014, but often gains new life on social media. more >>
Many Christians today, such as Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, are actually "functional atheists" because they won't stand up for their biblical values in the public square, the sibling real estate team "The Benham Brothers" said this past weekend.
In an email interview that was published by the Conservative Review, Christian twin businessmen and authors Jason and David Benham discussed their second book Living Among Lions: How to Thrive Like Daniel in Today's Babylon and their thoughts on Hillary Clinton's running mate, a Catholic who personally opposes abortion but will not stand in the way of a "woman's right to choose."
News broke last week that Kaine, who has a history of supporting bans on taxpayer funding to abortion and parental consent laws, made a private agreement with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to not stand in the way of her quest to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bans taxpayer funding for abortion. more >>
As a pro-life, pro-free markets, religious liberty-promoting conservative, I've had a really bad eight years. And the Hellerstedt decision that struck down Texas' HB2 restrictions has only provided poignant and miserable punctuation to a near-decade of disappointment.
If conservatives had been told in 1980 where public policy would be in 2016, we would have declared the "culture wars" lost in toto. But the last eight years and a few Supreme Court decisions are only a symptom of a much larger issue.
The first problem is the electorate — us. It is as true now as it was to Plato that the whims of the masses incubate, insulate, install, and ultimately replace one stellar candidate with the next. Legislators, executives, and justices lead only within the confines of what they know the public will tolerate. And for those whose livelihood depends on staying within these margins (especially politicians), public whims must be constantly measured — hence the phrase "living by the polls." more >>
