The United Nations declared abortion a ‘human right’ and conservatives aren’t talking about it.

In this interview with Austin Ruse, president of the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam), he discusses the implications of the United Nations resolution claiming that abortion is a “human right.”

Although the resolution is “non-binding,” meaning it does not have the force of law but only persuasive power, Ruse points out that it’s nevertheless “highly influential.”

Ruse also shares his thoughts on why nations like Poland and Hungary aren’t willing to fight the resolution, as well as why conservatives in America should care more about it.



Record number of young people in Japan rejecting marriage, survey shows.

The decline in marriages has had consequences for Japan’s birth rate as it faces the prospect of dramatic depopulation and a shrinking workforce and economy.

Experts have attributed the trend to several factors, including a growing desire among young working women to enjoy the freedoms that come with being single and having a career.

Men say they also enjoy being single, but also voice concern over job security and their ability to provide for a family. Experts have called on the government to make it easier for women to return to work after having children and to address Japan’s notoriously long working hours. Read more

We can neutralize these dangerous expectations in marriage by applying two simple solutions. First, we need to adjust our expectations of ourselves and our spouses. I’ve learned that I don’t need to be perfect to be a good spouse. I love my wife best by being myself with her. I also honor her when I share what I’m thinking instead of expecting her to be a mind reader.

The second solution is to communicate openly and honestly with each other. It takes some humility, but once we start connecting authentically, conversations about expectations become easier. Engaging in real dialogue with our spouses helps us learn what each person really desires. That builds trust, which is the foundation of any healthy relationship. It starts with a simple statement like “Hey, honey, let me tell you what I’m thinking” or “Can I share with you what’s going on?” Read more

Young People Are Depressed…Who Can Blame Them?

Last year a Harvard Youth Poll found 51 percent of Americans ages 18-29 had felt depressed, down, or hopeless at times in the two weeks before responding to the survey. While adults might respond in similar numbers—feeling “down” covers a lot of territory—let’s take the poll at face value and assume that teens and twenty-somethings are emotionally rocky these days. Read more

Why Religious Freedom Can’t Protect Abortion.

According to a recent complaint filed by the Jewish congregation L’Dor Va-Dor, Florida’s new law restricting abortion limits the free exercise of religion for Jewish women in Florida who wish to have an abortion after fifteen weeks. But this complaint misunderstands the nature of religious liberty: no religion, or any adherent thereof, has the lawful or moral claim to kill an innocent person in the name of that faith. Read more

Senator on Democrats’ Same-Sex Marriage Bill: ‘We Have to Fight Back on This’.

Passing a bill enshrining same-sex marriage in national law would put the existence of religious nonprofit ministries at risk and send “a pretty strong message that religious beliefs don’t matter,” a Republican senator has said.
