America’s Conflicts Are Not Primarily Political Or Ideological, But Religious

By John Daniel Davidson Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes Without a civic life shaped by Christianity, there can be no American republic.

IVF Modernizes Ancient Eugenic Practices Of ‘Selective Breeding’

By Katie Breckenridge If states enforced restrictions on IVF, embryos would no longer be commodities that society can do with as it pleases.

After a Male Caused Her Partial Paralysis, Female Volleyball Player Payton McNabb Now Fights to Protect Women’s Sports

By Ashley McClure Editors’ Note: Biden and the Democrats make a big deal about supporting “women’s rights”, deliberately conflating abortion with a right. No one has a right to kill another being to advance their goals, male or female, and clearly, a baby is being killed during an abortion.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Endorses Democrats’ Unpopular Abortion Until Birth Agenda

By Jordan Boyd Editors’ Note:  RFK, Jr. has said some interesting things. His views seem to integrate with Conservatives on issues of free speech, the collusion of government and media to influence election outcomes, the Administrative State, and the abuses of the medical establishment. Because of this, some “conservatives” who are not in love with […]

Our Daughters Will Reap The Consequences Of Feminists Killing Boy Scouts

By Mary Rooke Editors’ Note: The author makes an excellent point. The arguments made by feminists that there should be no differences between men and women and that they should be “equal” in all regards has led to the transgender movement, which is erasing the very concept of womanhood. In addition, if there can be […]

Every State Facing Deceptive, Unlimited Abortion Ballot Measures This November

By Jordan Boyd Democrats and their abortion giant allies want to legalize killing unborn babies throughout all nine months of gestation in every state. A majority of U.S. adults reject that position, but that fact hasn’t stopped the ballot measure battle that plagued Ohio last year from infiltrating several other states, including those controlled by […]

The Cherry-Picking of History on College Campuses

By Craig J. Cantoni Editors’ Note: The author is spot on about the genocide in Darfur and selection bias in the outrage of campus leftists.

The Pro-Life Movement Has A Storytelling Problem

By Carrie Gress Women are drawn toward what is aspirational and beautiful, not scary stories of grueling and unfamiliar situations. Many years ago, a friend visiting an Eastern European country diligently wrote several postcards, stamped them, and then dropped them in what he thought was a mailbox. It turned out to be a very elegant […]

Dems Smell Blood In The Water After Arizona Abortion Ruling. Republicans Are Scrambling To Respond

By Mary Lou Masters Editors’ Note:  We think the authors are spot on. Abortion is a big issue for Arizona and we have offered our own take that we think is helpful in thinking about the matter. We don’t think the compromise we suggest will satisfy all, but that is the difference between the political […]

Biden’s Title IX Rewrite Strips Away Protections For Women, Denies Women Equal Opportunity

By Editors of The Independent Women’s Forum Editors’ Note: Democrats cast themselves as the party of “women’s rights”, while they actually are the party of unrestricted abortion to be paid for with public money.  We hope the knowledge of this most recent decision will change the minds of not only Arizona women, but women across […]

Medical Groups Silent After Review Finds ‘Weak Evidence’ for Recommending Puberty Blockers to Kids

By Katelynn Richardson Editors’ Note: It is appalling that American medical organizations either remain opposed or silent on this latest study.

In addition, 22 American states have […]

The Sex Education of Our Nation’s Children: Since the Sexual Revolution

By Kali Fontanilla Since the Sexual Revolution Then came the 1960s and the Sexual Revolution.

Thinking About Abortion and Arizona Elections

By Neland Nobel There seems to be no issue that stirs up people as the issue of abortion. It likely is because the thinking and narrative around the subject have been so distorted over the past 40 years or so. It would appear that the issue will be critical in multiple elections this cycle, including […]

Democrats Don’t Want You To Know How Moderate Trump’s Abortion Stance Is

By David Harsanyi Come to think of it, the GOP’s federal bill is also pretty moderate. Abortion on demand, for any reason, until birth, funded by taxpayers. That’s the modern left’s position on the issue. Democrats are so dug into their extremism that they can’t even support bills that compel “doctors” to keep babies who […]

NAIA’s New Rules On Transgender People In Women’s Sports Rebuke The Left’s Insanity

By Kaylee McGhee White The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, one of college sports’ governing bodies, announced this week that it would not allow male-bodied athletes to compete in women’s sports, pointing to the importance of “fair and safe competition for all student-athletes.” The decision is a welcome relief in a society that refuses to see […]

Weekend Read: Artificial Intelligence

By Conlan Salgado As human beings we name things. We classify objects and persons. These activities are the foundation of our pursuit of understanding: categorization. It may be that in classifying ourselves as homo sapiens—intelligent hominids—we set ourselves up for perpetual misunderstanding of ourselves. Lately some members of homo sapiens have convinced themselves that they […]

Is Learning Standard “White” English Oppressive for Black Students?

By George Leef Among the many destructive ideas loose in American education is that black students should not be expected to master standard English because doing so is demeaning and demoralizing for them.

The Tailspin of American Boys and Men

By Brenda M. Hafera American males are turning off, and tuning and dropping out. Many boys and men are struggling to flourish in their roles as sons, students, employees, and fathers, and to achieve the sense of purpose that comes from being rooted within marriages, communities, churches, and country. Much of the literature on the […]

By Robert Schmad A plethora of federal agencies have spent well over $200 million attempting to alleviate homelessness in Washington state over the past 17 years, only for the number of people living on the streets to keep rising. Federal agencies like the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Department of […]

Sex Politics

By E.J. Hare With the sudden re-emergence of Christine Blasey Ford, who tried to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court with baseless accusations of sexual assault, the Democrats are clearly wasting no time in trying to get more white women back into their fold. They are looking to make the extremely nuanced case […]
