The AP is reporting on possibly the biggest pro-life victory in the 34 years since abortion-on-demand was imposed on our nation: The 5-4 ruling [by the U.S. Supreme Court] said the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act that Congress passed and President Bush signed into law in 2003 does not violate a woman’s constitutional right to an […]

Connecticut’s legislators  already passed a civil union law and–despite its inability to confer a single new “right”–voted a same-sex “marriage” law out of committee last week. Of what possible relevance to our state, then, is the New Hampshire civil union battle that the Courant put on its front page yesterday? As it happens, the Courant unintentionally provides the […]

Last week I noted a Courant story on how today’s working moms experience motherly guilt despite a study saying they spend more “quality” time with their children than the mothers of 40 years ago. Yesterday the Courant followed up with a Q and A with Leslie Bennetts, author of a new book warning that it is […]

A story on the front page of today’s Life section reports uncritically on an event–ostensibly to prevent anti-gay bullying–occuring in the nation’s schools tomorrow. Courant staff writer Joann Klimkiewicz’s article does not quote a single critic of the event, makes no mention of the controversy in Danbury and even promotes the event’s website. From Klimkiewicz’s story: […]

May God Have Mercy

Connecticut’s pro-family movement joins with the nation in praying for our country and especially for all those affected by yesterday’s massacre at VA Tech. From the President of the United States: Our nation is shocked and saddened by the news of the shootings at Virginia Tech today.  The exact total has not yet been confirmed, but […]

“Sounds like one legislator cried, said she wanted her civil union to be called a marriage, and then they all voted for it.” Well, not exactly. But I understand the frustration of the person who made that comment to me–and the scores of pro-family callers to our office–over MSM coverage of the vote. I was […]

Religious Freedom, Prayer Events

One of our activists for the preservation of marriage in Connecticut, Rich Kendall, is issuing the call for Christian men to attend the Minutemen United Convention, “Someone Has Stolen My Country And I Want Her Back”, this Thursday-Saturday, April 19-21 in historic Lexington at the Heritage Hall, 177 Bedford Street. For more information, please visit […]

“Same-sex marriage” advocates like to draw parallels between their agenda and the historical struggle for racial equality. And they use this persuasive technique as a tool to undermine well-reasoned opposition. Let’s not be so easily fooled. The argument is false, because the underlying nature of these types of relationships (married couples vs. same-sex partnerings) is not […]

Rules For Commenting

It’s been almost six months since we transitioned to a standard blog format, complete with comments, and we thank all of you for joining the conversation. As mentioned in a previous thread, we’ve taken a mostly hands-off approach to moderating comments because we want to encourage as vigorous a debate as possible. Some of our […]

In what was a foregone conclusion–given the makeup of the Committee–the Judiciary Committee voted in favor of the same-sex “marriage” bill by 27-15. Pro-same sex “marriage” co-chairmen Mike Lawlor and Andrew McDonald surprised the public by not putting the bill on today’s agenda until late last night. Even some major media outlets were kept in […]
