“If You Can’t Get Out of the Womb, Nothing—Nothing—Matters.”

originally published at Live Action News February is Black History Month. But there is a very real part of the Black history narrative that most people — including people in the Black community — do not know: the Civil Rights Movement was pro-life, and the battle for so-called “abortion rights” has always been a red herring for racism.

Love’s Lies and Little Girl Lost

Originally published at Live Action News I can proudly state that I have never read a single issue of Cosmopolitan in my entire life. I don’t think I’ve ever so much as picked up a copy. Nonetheless, they helped create a mythos that has permeated our culture, and I was undeniably formed by it. In fact, in my 20’s and early 30’s, […]

Two Paths

Originally published at Live Action News At a shadowy crossroads, two paths diverge. The roads ahead are unclear, but it’s obvious neither will be easy to tread.

On Bishops and Bellyachers

I was in the grocery store when I snapped. It was two months into lockdown. As an immune-compromised person, I’d begun my Coronavirus journey cautiously—staying in, and wearing an N-95 mask if I had to go out. My roommate had been shopping for the items we were unable to get delivered. So it’d been some time since I’d experienced the […]

The Last Time I Slow-Danced With Death

Originally published at The Stream It seemed so Providential. So heaven-sent. So meant to be. And perhaps it was. Perhaps I will never really know for sure. What I do know is, when I saw her email sitting in my inbox, my heart skipped a beat. My article on ancient child sacrifice and the modern abortion epidemic, in which I’d […]

Child Sacrifice in the COVID-19 Era

Originally published at OnePeterFive “It’s very difficult for us to recapture people’s motivations for carrying out this practice … Perhaps it was out of … a sense that the good the sacrifice could bring the family or community as a whole outweighed the life of the child.” — Dr. Josephine Quinn, on Carthaginian ritual infant sacrifice “The reasons and need […]
