- A Single Drop in the Ocean takes exception to a PETA ad that equates eating meat with the pro-life issue.
- Moral Outcry lauds the work of a Colorado pastor who established Project 1:27, which “turned 875 children in the Colorado foster system who were waiting for adoption (not all foster children are eligible to be adopted) just a few years ago into zero.”
- Down on the Pharm answers critics of pharmacists who refuse to sell the morning-after pill to men, and explains why some refuse to sell it at all.
