Journalists Are Now Into Kidnapping?

Planned Parenthood Baby Killers Fight Back

Jan 16, 2016

You know the pro-aborts are getting pretty desperate when they start launching lawsuits against prolifers. But any group that kills babies for a living and makes money off it has got to be fairly desperate to begin with. The guilt

Victoria: Anti-God and Anti-Life

Nov 27, 2015

“All who hate me [God] love death” (Proverbs 8:36). The two always go together, and we see this perfectly on display in the People’s Republik of Victoria. The Hyper leftist Labor Government under Daniel Andrews keeps on pushing a radical
