by John Ellis

With the advances in ultrasound technology, especially the development of 3D ultrasound, pro-abortion advocates have changed tactics. It’s become next to impossible to convince people that a fetus isn’t a human life. For many who are pro-abortion, the argument now centers on personhood.

It’s been over a month since I’ve shared my favorite PJ Media articles that I’ve written with the readers of this blog. The interim has been rather uneventful. Some of my articles have done well, but none have done great.

Time to restart this series that I blatantly stole from Tim Challies. To be fair, Challies didn’t invent the idea of aggregate sites and posts (maybe he did, I don’t know, I didn’t research it). Regardless, when I was posting these over a year ago, people seemed to like ’em. So, I’ll give it another shot.

Below are links to blog posts and articles from the past week that I’ve found interesting and/or edifying. The weekend is coming, maybe you’ll find some reading material among the links.
