VUOTO: Sliding toward infanticide

President Obama has turned America into one of the most barbaric nations on earth: The country is committed to using tax dollars to kill unborn babies, both at home and abroad. Alarm bells were rung recently by pro-life groups that warned that states such as Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Mexico would be funding abortion as they established high-risk health care pools, despite Mr. Obama's issuance of an executive order prohibiting abortion coverage. It appears his paltry gesture will do little to stop the unfolding Obamacare bureaucratic tangle that will funnel funds for elective abortions. Published August 5, 2010

VUOTO: Veterans demand respect

"Children will announce they want to serve in our nation's military, and teachers will applaud their aspirations, rather than regard them as lowering their standards.

VUOTO: Women on a mission

They are ladies who do not take "no" for an answer.

VUOTO: Violent resolutions?

Many American teens regard violence as acceptable. A recent poll conducted by Opinion Research surveyed 750 boys and girls from 12 to 17 years of age and found that the majority of teens provided a variety of justifications for violent behavior. The report was featured in a Dec. 22 editorial in The Washington Times, titled "Mean teens?" We asked David W. Miller, professor of business ethics and director of the Princeton University Faith and Work Initiative, for his opinion. Mr. Miller trains youth on ethical behavior in the workplace.
