The new currency of offense

There's a new currency gaining prominence in American culture; it's the currency of offense.

The pro-life generation

They say that ladies never reveal their age, but for once, I will reveal mine in hopes of making a point. I was born in 1973, the year that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade.
