Collegian Columnist Undergoes Moral Crisis Over Clump of Cells

by Vincent CUCKiara An article was recently published in the Collegian entitled “We all need to respect our right to choose,” in which the author seems to be confused about the moral question of medical procedures. The column argues that those who support the “March For Life” hold anachronistic authoritarian beliefs condemning an action which ought to be the “choice” of the individual immediately affected, namely the mother of an unborn child. At several points, quite perplexingly, the author reveals…

by Sarah Nahrgang Today is the 45th anniversary of Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which removed the legal right of the states to strictly regulate policy on abortion.

Ohio Bans Abortion, Only for Those Diagnosed with Down Syndrome

by Sarah Nahrgang On Friday, Gov. John Kasich of Ohio signed into law an abortion ban for pre-born babies diagnosed with Down syndrome, making Ohio the third state to do so. A similar law was struck down in an appeals court in Indiana, but a 2013 abortion ban from North Dakota still stands.

Mandate Exemption Protects Vital Religious Freedom

by Sarah Nahrgang Last Friday, the Trump administration put forth an interim final rule to roll back the HHS mandate for religious employers to cover contraception in their health insurance plans.

Most notably, much of the impetus for this ruling came from…

Furthering the Abortion Conversation on Campus: What the Catholic Church Really Says

by Sarah Nahrgang and Dominic DeCinti As our trust in our traditions and institutions erode, we are slowly losing our identity. The West has, over time, lost faith in the Christian values that aided its unmatched success as a civilization. The President’s tweets, kneeling athletes, and the latest climate hysteria concern us more than the degradation of the family, the bedrock of our society. We have lost sight of our priorities, and our belief in the sanctity of life…

Your Speech Is Not Free If You Are Pro-Life

by Sarah Nahrgang Every day in America, 3,000 innocent lives are taken. That is ¼ of our generation. Our brothers. Our sisters. Our friends. Our peers. Nearly 60 million children have been killed by abortion since 1973. They have no voice. They have no rights. When a group of pro-lifers dared to stand up for these rights on Monday, they were shouted over and forced to leave. This is just another case of conservative viewpoints being shut down on…
