+  Social Science Apologetics: Why Abortion Remains the Fundamental Social Justice Issue of our Time

  • Description: It has become popular to assert that abortion is just one of many important social-justice issues. People note, correctly, that issues such as immigration, education and healthcare are also extremely important pro-life issues. But that doesn't mean they are on par with the fundamental right to life. Greg Popcak joins us to discuss why abortion is still the fundamental social justice issue of our time.

+  Protest Planned Parenthood this Weekend

  • Description: Advocates of Planned Parenthood often claim that the major abortion provider is also a leader in women's health and prenatal care services. A recent investigation by Live Action tells a different story. Videos released by the group show women contacting 68 Planned Parenthood facilities nationwide to ask about ultrasound services; in all but three cases they were told the machines are only used for abortions. The new Congress and Administration has finally made defunding the abortion giant a possibility. Monica Miller is preparing another round of nationwide protests on February 11. She joins us.
