Dear Parents, You are Being Lied to By Living Whole

The Anti-vax lobby is under fire. I have long stated that the anti-vax lobby had it’s success due to the success of medicine. See, we made diseases rare.

Abortion Myths Debunked

Christian Post’s pro-life brigade were out in force over the week. The problem with such reporting is that it’s an outright lie.
