One of the raging debates of the twentieth century has been the question of whether abortion, as a form of infanticide, is wrong. What does legislation think about it? Science and religion? What does it all come down to? Morality? Logic? The controversy has gone even further with proponents and opponents being labeled as ‘pro-life’ and ‘pro-choice’ respectively. Whichever way you choose to look at it, the morality clause always takes a hit. Unless you want to apply common…Continue

Just like Tim (the young boy in Boss Baby). In the story, Tim has a great imagination…Continue

The reasoning behind this (barbaric, in our opinion) practice is that in an emergency, general anesthesia may be used and any food eaten could aspirate into the lungs.
