Meet the interns: Attila Varszegi

What motivated you to join the pro-life movement? What continues to motivate you?

I need to be able to look my future children (God willing) in the eyes one day and tell them that their father fought for the pre-born.

What motivated you to join the pro-life movement? What continues to motivate you?

Tomi Lahren defended abortion. She's wrong, and it matters.

By Jonathon Van Maren

Tomi Lahren styles herself a “young, conservative woman”—and her sharp rise as a TV show host, she says, is an indication that there is an audience hungry for her message, which she’s described in the past as “anti-feminist.” Her show Tomi on The Blaze is wildly popular, mainly for her consistent defences of Donald Trump, and her young audience loves her for her willingness to face off with left-wing commentators like Trevor Noah of the Daily Show.

What motivated you to join the pro-life movement? What continues to motivate you?

The prospective of changing minds and hearts on the issue of abortion motivated me to join the pro-life movement. Every day pre-born children are dismembered and decapitated. Every person can make a difference.

Miracles

By Gerrit Van Dorland

I put the van in drive and turned my left signal on. Checking my blind spot before merging into traffic, I catch one last glimpse of the red brick building with white pillars. There is nothing unordinary about the building. It could pass for a typical American bungalow. To the right side of the building, a small green, rectangular sign reads: Orlando Women’s Center. I forced my attention back to the road. The rain patters lightly on the windshield and music plays softly in the background. I look in my rear-view mirror—everyone is lost in thought, deeply affected by what we had just seen. I drive on, supressing the emotions that well up. I turn the music up somewhat.

In this time of fear

Rebuilding the pro-life consensus isn't nearly as hard as you think it is

By Jonathon Van Maren

We are currently in Week Two of our annual tour of Florida campuses, bringing our large display of abortion victim photography to face thousands of students with the truth about what goes on inside clinics and hospitals every day. Thousands of pamphlets explaining the development of the baby in the womb and the reality of what abortion does to that baby are being passed out, and hundreds of conversations are happening. We are watching the pro-life consensus on campuses grow in real-time.

A note to Maryam Monsef: Abortion is the number one weapon against girls worldwide

By Jonathon Van Maren

The last time cabinet minister Maryam Monsef made the news, the occasion was her bungled handling of the Liberals’ short-lived plan to enact electoral reform. Now, Monsef has appeared in headlines across the country saying that denying someone access to the violence of abortion is itself violence. From Maclean’s:

Status of Women Minister Maryam Monsef says denying access to the full range of reproductive services — including abortion — is a form of violence against women.

“Reproductive health rights in Canada and around the world are critical to advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls,” Monsef said Thursday in an interview with The Canadian Press.

The media's attack on the ultrasound fails the test of both history and science

By Jonathon Van Maren

It is common knowledge in the pro-life movement that the “pro-choice” media is, for the most part, “pro-abortion.” This is not an attempt to demonize their motives, but simply the only rational conclusion that observation can produce. Consistently, the media and their abortion industry allies portray legislation that would give women more information—informed consent, information concerning the baby’s development in the womb, ultrasounds—as “anti-choice,” when in in fact these policies simply allow women to make their irreversible, permanent decision with more facts. That those facts often prove persuasive in swaying women to choose for life is evidence that providing them with these facts is not only useful, but should be, if “pro-choice” meant anything at all, imperative.

Consciousness and human rights

By Christine De Baets

Depending on people’s backgrounds, some like to challenge the pro-life position on scientific grounds, others on philosophical grounds. A particular point of intersection of the two perspectives – and one that comes up often – is the topic of consciousness. The term carries with it a lot of interesting intellectual tradition. However, most either only consider a narrow portion of it, or make use of it simply to serve pre-established purposes.
