LINKS: False sex abuse accusation, assisted suicide, Sophie Trudeau, science, prolife etc

This Newsweek article details how a lying "altar boy" made dubious charges of sexual abuse against Msgr. William Lynn and other Catholic Church personnel. He rode the wave of the sex abuse cases which engendered a lot of anti-Catholic feeling.

The History of the Pro-Life and Pro-Woman Movement
"It's anti-woman to support abortion. It hurts women. It kills women."Our culture assumes that to be "pro-woman" you have to support abortion rights. This couldn't be farther from the truth.
