On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. The date corresponded to January 22, 1973, when the United States Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states. I wish he wouldn’t have limited the day to simply the unborn in the United States. So, here’s my Lives matter issue:
Right to life: womb to tomb
Every human being everywhere has a right to life from womb to tomb. Here are my favorite columns on:
• Is it a life or a choice?
• Ethuanasia and dying with dignity
• Capital punishment: serious questions
• Pro-life from womb to tomb
Right to equality
St. Paul wrote, “There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28). Here are columns that explore equality:
• Am I a “feminist”? Yes and no! Gender equality is complicated!
• James Watkins: ex-slave, author, soul brother I’m proud to call this social reformer family!
• Martin Luther King Jr’s ten commandments for cultural change
• Race relations by the numbers A cover story I wrote after a summer of racial unrest and violence
• Top ten signs your church may be prejudiced
• What was St. Paul thinking when he wrote “Women must be silent”?!
