  • In 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in Roe vs. Wade that a woman’s right to privacy includes the right to terminate the life of her unborn child.

    Today, in 2017, as a result, sixty million American lives have been ended in the very womb that was giving them life. In some sense, every American has become a victim of this injustice, but the tragic effects have been disproportionately devastating on the black community. It is not the God of the Bible who has been driving this murderous American system from 1973 until today. So who has?

  • A top London university has admitted to spying on its staff and students as part of government efforts to prevent radicalisation on campus.

    A notice on the King's College London (KCL) email login page warns members that emails can be "monitored and recorded" under the Government's controversial anti-terror strategy Prevent.

    Members of the KCL Students' Union have called the measures a violation of trust, adding: "Students who have not committed any crimes are being treated as suspects".

  • The venue for the declaration of the "Islamic State" had been carefully chosen. The Great Mosque of al-Nuri in Mosul was a fitting location for the restoration of a "caliphate" pledged to the destruction of its enemies. It was built in 1172 by Nur al-Din al-Zengi, a warrior famed for his victories over the Crusaders. When Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi ascended the pulpit in July 2014 and proclaimed his followers to be "the backbone of the camp of faith and the spearhead of its trench", he was consciously following in Nur al-Din’s footsteps. The message could not have been clearer. The Crusaders were back and needed defeating.

    Time present and time past are both perhaps present in time future. In Islamic State’s propaganda, they certainly are. Sayings attributed to Muhammad that foretold how the armies of Islam would defeat the armies of the Cross serve their ideologues as a hall of mirrors. What happened in the Crusades is happening now; and what happens now foreshadows what is to come.

  • Babies are dying because of a chronic lack of access to 20-week ultrasound scans, an Irish obstetrics expert has warned.

    Louise Kenny, professor at University College Cork, said that doctors felt “haunted” because they were forced to choose which women would have access to the scans. The procedure identifies major and in some cases life-threatening problems with organ development.

  • We live in the age of apology. This is not a reference to the quintessentially British habit of apologising to the person who bumps into you but to the politically motivated non-apology—the ridiculous virtue-signalling, leftist habit of apologising for the past and the sins of one’s ancestors.

    It has even bred an academic discipline—scholars of the public apology whose conclusion surprise, surprise, is that it has made the apology meaningless.

  • Gender ideology seemed a ridiculous and improbable threat when I first considered its claims of male brains trapped in female bodies, but its rapid ascendancy in law and public opinion has made the term "transgender" a household word. While some were scoffing at Caitlyn Jenner on the cover of Vanity Fair, I was engaged in a battle over the meaning of sex and gender at my children's school. Katherine Kersten's December contribution to First Things, "Transgender Conformity," was, in part, my own story: I was a parent at Nova Classical Academy.

  • The Church of England is considering a military covenant-style pledge to care for its clergy amid mounting concerns about patchy and inadequate support on offer.

    Church leaders will be asked to commit to a set of "minimum standards" over clergy wellbeing as a report found priests are offered less support and care than other professions such as the army.

  • A British Christian pro-life advocate, who attempted to bring ‘gender-abortion’ doctors to justice and was subsequently derailed by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), has appeared in court on Tuesday to challenge the enormous legal costs awarded against her.

    Aisling Hubert, 23, has been ordered to pay £36,000 (AUD $59,000) in costs to two doctors who were filmed by a national newspaper offering gender selective abortion.

    She was also told to pay a further £11,000 (AUD $18,000) following her attempt to challenge the legal costs awarded against her after CPS’ intervention.

    The case, which is supported by the Christian advocacy organisation Christian Concern, has attracted widespread support in her favour.

  • Dare to debate this damaging idea that gender is a social construct.

    There is a fear that dare not speak its name, a question that dare not be asked. An ideology is being foisted on Scotland’s children which, though well-meaning, is ultimately harmful.

    Professionals have told me that they are scared to speak out or to even ask questions. Journalists are concerned their articles won’t be published, doctors that they will lose their jobs and teachers that they will be sidelined. Politicians fear the Twitter mobs and hate speech that inevitably follows if they dare to question or challenge.
