Mercatornet: How Women’s Equality becomes a pawn in workforce policy

In Women Are Key for Future Growth: Evidence from Canada the International Monetary Fund recommends that Canada spend eight billion dollars annually on a daycare program that would pay for itself. The catch? Mothers must be forced to work. The authors reveal their political leanings early on, and hence their framing of the research. In so many words, they are saying: Our purpose as human beings is … Continue reading Mercatornet: How Women’s Equality becomes a pawn in workforce policy

Mercatornet: Women Oppose Abortion Politics

Contrary to impressions given in the media, by professional bodies such as the Royal college of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and by most Parliamentarians, an overwhelming majority of Britons actually want to make it harder for women to get abortions, a new poll reveals. It is particularly striking how much support there is amongst women for lowering the time limit for abortion, which currently stands … Continue reading Mercatornet: Women Oppose Abortion Politics

Mercatornet: How one Nairobi woman saves young mothers from the pressure to abort

Domitila Ayot is a humble heroine of the slums. All Anne* wanted when she left her poor home in rural Kenya after finishing high school in 2014 was to make some money in Nairobi so she could go back, clear her fees, and redeem her certificate so she could apply for college. But in late 2016, she hadn’t made enough money yet. She was still … Continue reading Mercatornet: How one Nairobi woman saves young mothers from the pressure to abort

They can enforce disregard for reality through speech protocols, social and economic pressures, invasions of privacy, and thought policing. And that is what the effect of Obama’s executive order is all about. It will … Continue reading Mercatornet: A de-sexed society is a de-humanised society

Family Edge: Side Effects of the Pill 102: Death

Where would you expect to find a film about the oral contraceptive pill which begins with the comment that this is “the first medical drug made specifically to treat people who aren’t sick”? Not at a bastion of liberal opinion such as the UK Guardian website. But that is where the video above was posted last month, warning that if you weren’t sick when you … Continue reading Family Edge: Side Effects of the Pill 102: Death

MercatorNet: The Bottom Line of What Those Videos Reveal

By Sheila Liaugminas Read it and weep. The simpler, clearer version of what’s going on in the abortion industry all this time. If you haven’t watched the damning videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing fetal tissue donation (or, in plain language, exchanging aborted babies’ body parts for money), you should watch them now before you read further. The first alarming question is whether Planned Parenthood illegally sells … Continue reading MercatorNet: The Bottom Line of What Those Videos Reveal

The Ambiguous Legacy of The Pill

By Jennifer Roback Morse at Mercatornet I am in the process of writing a book which argues that the Sexual Revolution has been a rich person’s hobby horse from the beginning. The rich and powerful like the idea of separating sex from child-bearing. While this idea is sometimes wrapped up in a disguise of helping woman and the poor, the fact remains that the rich and … Continue reading The Ambiguous Legacy of The Pill
