Abortion and rape: Responding with facts and compassion

By Sarah Quale — What about abortion in cases of rape and incest? It’s an emotional question that’s often used to stump pro-lifers and force us to concede that, in some cases, abortion might actually be the right thing to do. But we need to ask ourselves: Is abortion really the compassionate solution we’re led to believe it is? What do the victims of sexual assault say? Are we listening to them? Are we protecting them? And finally, what can we do as individuals to advocate for them?

Being fully pro-life: A story of human value and disability

By guest author Deborah Riffenburgh — Pro-life advocates care about the personhood of children, born and pre-born. We care about the personhood of the moms and the dads.

The town that started the Civil War

By Gualberto Garcia Jones, Esq. — In the 1850s, Christians in Oberlin, Ohio, were motivated by the fear of God’s just judgment to defy the federal government and refuse to cooperate with the unjust Fugitive Slave Act.
