Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lobbed criticisms at pro-lifers again this week during a women’s conference in New York City.

She criticized pro-life legislators, especially male legislators, who are working to defund the nation’s largest abortion chain, Planned Parenthood, and cutting off funding to international groups that promote and perform abortions, sometimes coercively. “All of the men sitting around the table deciding how they

In September of 2015, at the opening of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis granted faculties to all priests of the Society
