It Is Possible to Be a Feminist and Be Prolife

Early women’s rights advocates were prolife, not proabortion. Susan B. Anthony was a radical feminist in her day. Her newspaper, The Revolution, made this claim: “When a woman destroys the life of her unborn child, it is a sign that, by education or circumstances, she has been greatly wronged.”

A Quiet Place and Our Silencing of the Unborn

Nanci and I saw The Quiet Place, which I don’t recommend unless you like 90 minutes of tension and dread. But if you can put up with the terror, there are some strong family values in this movie. One in particular, an emphatic prolife message, is celebrated in this article by Greg Morse.
