If our leaders in government believe in a representative republic, I would ask that you produce for us a representative chaplaincy. As it stands, the chaplaincy does not come close to demographic alignment with the religious diversity of our armed forces.
What is "the abortion industry?" When was the last time you saw an abortion commercial on TV? Even Planned Parenthood doesn't talk about this small part of its activities.
Serving in the Peace Corps in the Central African Republic is part of what inspired me to work in the reproductive health field. My service exposed me to the realities of gender violence, and left me even more committed to working for women's rights and empowerment.
According to the pundits and experts, the 1973 decision to legalize abortion outraged millions of Americans and mobilized them into a powerful movement to defend the rights of the unborn. But this tale turns out to be a myth.
Individualism, disdain for the rights of the unborn, dismissal of the sanctity of all life -- including that of bombers -- and the preponderance of assault weapons in America: All represent a societal sickness that lures many sheep away from a life-giving shepherd to follow another who leads them to their destruction.
A megachurch pastor from Idaho argues in his new book that the abolitionist movement was wrong, and the Civil War should never happened, because if Southern slave-owners had been allowed to implement the Bible's teachings on slavery, then a more humane transition would have taken place through "gospel gradualism."

What if you could allow an American woman the continued right to make that decision, and at the same time preserve the life of the fetus? The abortion debate would be over.
Rather than focusing on political tactics and news cycle spin, we focus on creating jobs. The Clintons have a brilliant job-creating (and deficit-reducing) record from the years of the Clinton presidency and can play an extraordinary role in generating new ideas.
We've got a lot to cover this week, so we're going to try to get through everything in a rather foreshortened format. At least, that's the goal.
If we are unable or unwilling to look deeply at ourselves, it is possible that we will be relegated to watch from the sidelines as democrats enact their principles across the country.
