This morning I sent a letter of resignation to the convenor of our local White Ribbon Day Australia Convoy. White Ribbon Australia has for many years campaigned against domestic violence in all its forms and worked hard to educate Australians. This is commendable and nothing that follows should be read as a rejection of the […]
A couple of piece of legislation are before the NSW Parliament’s upper house (the Legislative Council) that seek to vastly loosen the current restrictions on abortion and to proscribe various forms of protest against abortion. The Roman Catholics, who are always excellent on this issue, have a great summary of the situation: The first of these […]
A quite excellent documentary by Sally Phillips. Make a cup of something and spend the time watching this.
It’s hard to express the depths of outrage many are feeling over the continued Planned Parenthood scandal. In the latest video release we see a discussion with a senior director from Planned Parenthood in Texas over how to set up and then invoice for the sale of baby parts from abortions.

On last week’s ABC Q&A programme the panellists were asked an intriguing final question based on the cultural “Festival of Dangerous Ideas” that was hosting this week’s episode of the show, Which so-called dangerous […]
Doug Wilson has an (as always) excellent piece on the place of politics in the pulpit including this gem: On the Obama question, the question is simpler and much more straightforward. He supports the killing of babies and therefore no consistent Christian may support him. That is not a partisan issue, and it only appears […]
Great new movement starting up in the UK promoting a proper discussion about abortion. “Not Blinkered“.
The Briefing have published an article which is a reworking of a few pieces I penned a while ago, “Our Messy Individualism“.
