The closing of the Oxbridge mind. Better not to debate controversies such as abortion

Nov 19, 2014 by

by Philippa Taylor, Conservative Woman: Not for the first time, a college at a top UK university has completely shut down an attempt to organise a balanced debate on abortion. Are the students running scared of possible credible opposition to their ‘abortion is the answer to everything’ mindset, by closing down all conversation with those who disagree, rather than engaging with it? Or are they simply unaware (despite being – apparently – among the brightest students in the UK) that by...

The courage of the few can shatter the silence of cowardice in the face of evil

Nov 14, 2014 by

By Bryan Kemper, LifeSite: The silence of those who know the truth is deafening. The apathy towards abortion—from a generation that prides itself in its enlightenment towards other social justice issues—is a badge of dishonor. The simple fact that we allow the chambers of death to exist is evidence that we are cowards in an hour that begs for courage. Sometimes silence can actually sound louder than words; it can speak volumes about the state of a culture. We have seen this all too many times...

Conscientious midwives. Who needs them?

Nov 10, 2014 by

By John Smeaton, SPUC: Actually we all do. And here’s why… These midwives have already staked their reputations, careers and futures on doing what they believe to be the right thing. I’m sure you don’t need persuading, this is the very best type of carer any family can have. The trouble is, persuading the board of a Glasgow hospital to respect Connie and Mary’s deepest beliefs. As the Board sees it, by refusing to supervise abortion procedures, these caring professionals aren’t doing...

Social conservatism reborn as Republican women rout the pro-abortion liberals

Nov 7, 2014 by

By Laura Perrins, Conservative Woman: Oh to live in the United States where The Conservative Woman actually exists. Women did very well in the elections and they were not running for the Democrats. You will not read about these candidates in The Guardian, or hear about them on Woman’s Hour, so we shall enlighten you here. Given the amount of griping that goes on about a lack of women in politics, one would expect the election to get a mention by Jenni & Co on Woman’s Hour....
