A Utah dad’s creative photo series displaying his 18-month-old son, Wil,

enter the territory of unique, living human beings.
Students in favor of abortion at Johns Hopkins University have
threatened to mob a pro-life table at the Spring Fair this weekend. The
Spring Fair Committee had banned fetal models from the North Baltimore
Pro-Life Study Group’s booth, calling the model display offensive and
Sometimes it’s in the way language is manipulated that meaning is made.
It seems that one pro-abortion Texas legislator knows that and has moved
to replace the words unborn child with fetus in state laws and informed
consent information that women must receive prior to an abortion.
Writer Andrea Grimes, in a new column, talks glowingly of women

pro-abortion forces are willing to put women in risky situations for the
