Segment 2 – The Fury of the Fatherless

“The Trump administration’s recent designation of several American cities as “anarchic jurisdictions” may turn out to have been nothing more than a quixotic gambit in the supercharged run-up to November 3. But the fact that it was thinkable in the first place points to a truth beyond electoral politics: The frenzy that has been enacted in city after American city since May 2020 demands more scrutiny than it has yet received.” … (Originally aired November 19, 2020)

Segment 4 – The Fake and Deceptive Science Behind Roe V. Wade: Settled Law? vs. Settled Science?


“A just-published scientific investigation is challenging the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit its erroneous Roe v. Wade decision, which gave the United States abortion on demand. The Fake and Deceptive Science Behind Roe v. Wade: Settled Law v. Settled Science says the high court is obliged to re-examine Roe because the pregnancy-related science used to support Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton has been found manifestly deficient. The study, published by renowned author and obstetrician-gynecologist, Thomas W. Hilgers, MD, says that human life begins at conception and is an “intellectual concept that hasn’t changed for over 150 years … and there is no indication it is going to change.” (Originally aired October 13, 2020)

Dr. Thomas W. Hilgers is the discoverer of NaProTechnology and the founder of the Pope Paul VI Institute. His first research in the natural means to regulate fertility was conducted in 1968 as a senior medical student. He established the St. Louis University Natural Family Planning Center, a research center funded by research grants from the National Institutes of Health and the Missouri Division of Health. This work was brought to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Creighton University School of Medicine in July 1977 with the establishment of the Creighton University Natural Family Planning Education and Research Center. During this time, Hilgers and his co-workers developed the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare System.
