Trump, who clearly never thought about this before, said what any rational person would say – “Yeah.” This caused a chorus of furor from the GOP, Trump’s […]
MILWAUKEE – Abolitionists from Wisconsin and surrounding states will convene at Cathedral Square in Milwaukee on March 14 to call for the total abolition of abortion and immediate interposition on behalf of the pre-born.
We recently published a short article expressing some critiques of the Personhood strategy. Though we did not heavily promote that article it has created considerable discussion within the anti-abortion world. This article is a further elaboration upon those themes.

“Abolitionist” is not a synonym for “pro-lifer.” Pro-life is the expression of a moral opinion. Abolition is the expression of a moral action.
