NGUYEN: Support Women’s Decisions

KHAN: Pro-Life, Male and Proud

An all-male Supreme Court legalized abortion nationwide in the landmark decision Roe v. Wade.

Pro-Life Movement Honors Church

In many ways, Haylie Jacobson’s viewpoint “Pro-Choice Broader than Abortion Issue” (THE HOYA, A3, Feb. 5, 2013) offers a refreshingly honest self-critique of the pro-choice movement. It echoes Time Magazine’s recent assertion that the pro-choice movement has been losing since Roe v. Wade. But Ms. Jacobson’s analysis and discussion of[Read More…]
