Do you stand with Thomas Peters?

Youngest kids are people too

While reading a colleague’s recent post about a disturbing Disney and World Population Council video propaganda video promoting birth control, I wondered about who would not exist if their parents followed such advice.

The myth of overpopulation

The discussions regarding life issues have quieted down recently, as the news is overtaken by the tragic situations in Egypt and Syria.

The truth will set us free
