“It’s Another Boy!” Ghoulish Planned Parenthood Abortionist Identifies “War Torn” Baby Body Parts
The fourth video released by the Center for Medical Progress started much as the first two, with actors posing as organ procurement representatives in negotiations with a Planned Parenthood abortionist. But the most recent offering from CMP’s David Daleiden goes far past the caviler discussions about selling aborted baby livers for top dollar and Lamborghinis.

New! Assessing Justice Kennedy as a marriage counselor

Mark Milburn
The Supreme Court seems to know a lot about marriage, Justice Kennedy especially. His Honor says once gays get married they'll radiate dignity, and autonomy and spirituality. Sad to believe they'll need all that. The wife and I destroyed each other's dignity and autonomy right after our honeymoon. Odd thing: we've been happy ever since.

Stem cells have been the object of intense, increasing interest due to their biological properties and the promise they hold for medical advances in the treatment of illnesses that are so far incurable.

New! The Ambiguous Quest for Marriage Equality

Adam J. MacLeod
Do proponents of marriage equality want marriage equality or not? The rhetoric of marriage equality does not match the reality.

The end of tolerance

The illusion that moral diversity is a viable social strategy is at its last gasp.

The Role of Godparents

William Saunders
Please explain the role of godparents in Catholic baptism. How strictly should the potential godparents adhere to traditional Catholic teaching? If a couple does not know sufficiently "qualified" godparents, is it acceptable for them to act as the godparents themselves?

You can work past 65 if you want!

Warren Sanderson
The idea of raising the retirement age is not popular - most people resent being told they must work for longer. But with life expectancies increasing and people enjoying higher quality of life at older ages, we face the prospect of older people being retired for the same amount of time as they were working, or longer.
