Distinguishing Abortion from Infanticide

We have reached a pivotal moment on abortion. New York recently legalized late-term abortion up to the moment of delivery and repealed a law requiring doctors to care for babies who survive.

The Art of the SOTU

Do you remember Hillary Clinton? I know, I know. Now, do you remember her campaign slogan? It was “I’m with her!” Incredibly, I still see the peculiar blue-on-white bumper sticker with an “H” on the odd Prius or Volvo in Washington, D.C.

Cuomo Excommunicado

The New York State Legislature on Tuesday night passed the Reproductive Health Act (“RHA”), which legalized abortion in New York State up to the moment of birth.

Who Am I to Judge? (Except Kids in MAGA Hats)

At the outset of his papacy, Pope Francis was asked about a suspected gay lobby in the priesthood and he famously said, “Who am I to judge?” Well, for starters, he is their boss and the church is raising money off claims that its priests and bishops are such singular crusaders in the cause of […]

What Young Men of Courage Teach Us about Ourselves

You might have seen a headline or two about how “Students in Trump Hats Mock Native American.” The story is a carefully crafted piece of propaganda, with a deceptive image and edited video at its core. As Daniel McCarthy points out, “it was a tale perfectly tailored to liberal biases: white Catholic teenagers in MAGA […]
