science reporter for The Daily Mail newspaper, based on an ingenious
study by researchers
By Paul Stark Many defenders of legalized abortion argue that it is

abortion is to listen to the stories of those who have actually been
there, in the rooms where abortions were performed– the former
abortionists and clinic workers.
By Dave Andrusko Unfortunately, we have two posts today about murders
whose brutality almost defies belief. Authorities charged Brian D.
Williams of Missouri Tuesday with four counts of murder in the deaths of
three adults and an unborn baby.
By Dave Andrusko Writing at the Huffington Post, Alanna Vagianos
could not be prouder that Renee Bracey Sherman is "happy" that Sherman
had an abortion when she was 19. The operative paragraph in Vagianos'
glowing tribute is The best part
