Since today is President's Day, which began as a celebration of King Lincoln's birthday, I submit this H.L. Mencken commentary on his most famous speech:Like William Jennings Bryan, he was a dark horse made suddenly formidable by fortunate rhetoric. The Douglas debate launched him, and the Cooper Union Speech got him the Presidency. His talent for […]
Scoffers need not point out things like double hearsay and difficulty in defining fulfillment of the terms. Got it. Watch anyway. There does seem to be something very interesting developing right in front of us.
If you turned on one of the cable TV news shows today, you may have seen it. It has been running for several weeks now. Spoiler alert: Never in your wildest imagination did you anticipate seeing this. The commercial begins with pensive music playing and an attractive young woman looking up at the camera. A subtitle identifies her as “Adeline, a Planned Paren […]
N.B. Excellent article by Jennifer Brinker in the St. Louis Review on Missouri House Bill 174, which would pre-empt and invalidate the execrable St. Louis City Board Bill 203.If passed and signed by the Governor, this bill would preempt the "abortion sanctuary" bill passed by the St.
Once you create a situation at law where killing of another person is allowed in certain circumstances, not only will the circumstances in which such killing is endorsed or allowed change over time, but the boundaries, however originally drawn, will be entirely ineffective in providing moral, legal and ethical guidance and restraint.

We started LifeNews.com in 1992 to compile pro-life news and information for the pro-life movement. In 2003, we became LifeNews.com officially to provide a full-time pro-life news outlet that was an alternative to the pro-abortion media. Because of the bias and misinformation in mainstream media news pieces, LifeNews was invented to counter that and provide […]
Psalm 93 [Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition]
1 The Lord is the God to whom revenge belongeth: the God of revenge hath acted freely.
2 Lift up thyself, thou that judgest the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 How long shall sinners, O Lord: how long shall sinners glory?
4 Shall they utter, and speak iniquity: shall all speak who work injustice?
5 Thy people, O Lord, they have brought low: and they have afflicted thy inheritance.
6 They have slain the widow and the stranger: and they have murdered the fatherless.
7 And they have said: The Lord shall not see: neither shall the God of Jacob understand.
8 Understand, ye senseless among the people: and, you fools, be wise at last.
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? or he that formed the eye, doth he not consider?
10 He that chastiseth nations, shall he not rebuke: he that teacheth man knowledge?
11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are vain.
12 Blessed is the man whom thou shalt instruct, O Lord: and shalt teach him out of thy law.
13 That thou mayst give him rest from the evil days: till a pit be dug for the wicked.
14 For the Lord will not cast off his people: neither will he forsake his own inheritance.
15 Until justice be turned into judgment: and they that are near it are all the upright in heart.
16 Who shall rise up for me against the evildoers? or who shall stand with me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless the Lord had been my helper, my soul had almost dwelt in hell.
18 If I said: My foot is moved: thy mercy, O Lord, assisted me.
19 According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, thy comforts have given joy to my soul.
20 Doth the seat of iniquity stick to thee, who framest labour in commandment?
21 They will hunt after the soul of the just, and will condemn innocent blood.
22 But the Lord is my refuge: and my God the help of my hope.
23 And he will render them their iniquity: and in their malice he will destroy them: the Lord our God will destroy them.
