James Kerian: Bodily Autonomy Does Not Mean You Can Kill Your Child

James Kerian: Bodily Autonomy Does Not Mean You Can Kill Your Child

The term “clump of cells” has probably permanently disappeared from our national debate over abortion. It will be up to the prosecutors and Planned Parenthood’s lawyers to argue over whether the money they admit to taking in exchange for organs is solely a reimbursement for “simply costs” as Planned Parenthood has publicly claimed or if these funds

James Kerian: Not Opposing Planned Parenthood? I Don't Want To Hear About Your Cause

“I believe Roe v. Wade should be repealed. I believe federal law should declare that life begins at conception. And I believe states should regulate the enforcement of this law, as they do other laws against violence.” – Dr Ron Paul The photo above of a preborn child was taken, according to Web MD, when

James Kerian: It Is Too Early For The Polls (Or The Trump Bump) To Matter At All

In previous columns I have mentioned the unfortunate tendency of many Americans to treat politics like a spectator sport.  A perfect example of this type of confusion is all of the fascination (or hyperventilation) about the Trump bump, Donald Trump’s recent ascendency in the polls.  I’m not just talking about the fact that Trump is more

James Kerian: The State Belongs "In The Marriage Business"

Roughly half of the country is hoping the US Supreme Court will rule later this month that the US Constitution requires that every state government begin issuing marriage licenses to any two people (regardless of gender) who are of sufficient age, not too closely related and not already married to someone else.  Despite all the talking points you may have heard about

James Kerian: Despite Setback Pro Life Laws Have Fared Well In Court

“I believe Roe v. Wade should be repealed. I believe federal law should declare that life begins at conception. And I believe states should regulate the enforcement of this law, as they do other laws against violence.” – Dr Ron Paul When the North Dakota legislature passed (with bi-partisan support) four pro life bills during the 2013 session the
