    Serrin Foster of Feminists for Life: How to make abortion unthinkable

    Serrin Foster of Feminists for Life: How to make abortion unthinkable

    "Our role is to systematically eliminate the root causes that drive women to abortion, through education and advocacy," said Serrin Foster, president of Feminists for Life since 1994. "Our flagship program has predominantly been on college campuses." See also their resource website, WomenDeserveBetter.com.
    In light of Proposition 115, a November ballot initiative in Colorado that would ban late-term abortion, Respect Life Radio is "presenting a diversity of interviews and opinions that you are unlikely to hear in the mainstream media," said show host Deacon Geoff Bennett.

    Robert George: Stand up to the woke bullying in America

    Robert George: Stand up to the woke bullying in America

    "People have forgotten that bullies are cowards," said Prof. Robert George, the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University and author of books and of articles, including "Solzhenitsyn's Prophecy."
    "We need outspokenness. It's the power of the word, not the force of arms, that will win this battle. But if people are too afraid, too frightened, too intimidated, too bullied to speak out against the bully — to stand up and defy the bully when the bully says, 'Oh, you're not allowed to say that,' or the bully says, 'Oh, you must say this, you must give me your loyalty oath' — until somebody stands up, until we gather ourselves and stand up to the bullies, this bullying is going to continue. But the minute that we do stand up, the bully will be revealed to be what all bullies are...a coward. And then we will begin to restore our civilization and our country."

    Fr. Dwight Longenecker: We first of all lie to ourselves. Jesus Christ is the truth.

    Fr. Dwight Longenecker: We first of all lie to ourselves. Jesus Christ is the truth.

    "The sin of the world is much more than just the naughty things I've done," said Fr. Dwight Longenecker, a Catholic parish priest in South Carolina, as well as a writer, speaker and author of "Immortal Combat: Confronting the Heart of Darkness" among other books. "The sin of the world is a deeply-woven net of deception and lies and deceitfulness written right into our genetic code, almost, right into the way we're wired — as individuals and as a society."
    Fr. Longenecker was previously on Respect Life Radio in a podcast titled, "Build on the rock of the Catholic faith."

    Pecknold and Anderson: Supreme Court imposing sexual ideology on America

    Pecknold and Anderson: Supreme Court imposing sexual ideology on America

    "We have our highest court completely unhinged from reality," said C.C. Pecknold, Ph.D., a professor at The Catholic University of America, referring to the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Bostock vs. Clayton County. "Bostock unhinges just the very nature of the person as sexually differentiated. It's a kind of sad, in a way not surprising, conclusion to a long series of decisions."
    Also interviewed on this episode of Respect Life Radio is Ryan T. Anderson, Ph.D., a senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation and author of books including, "When Harry Became Sally" and "Truth Overruled." 
    Anderson refers to the Supreme Court imposing "a misguided sexual and gender ideology on the country" and that, "Unfortunately, the Supreme Court can do a lot of damage when judges just impose their personal belief, their personal policy preferences, their views — on contested questions on the American people."
