An Update from Morning Walk: Looking Forward to the March for Life 2020

Dear Readers, It has been a year since Morning Walk launched the Morning Walk Website. For those of you who don’t know, Morning Walk is a community of young traditional Christians from all three branches – Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant. The group makes it possible for devout believers to acquire true and close friends who are interested in theological discussions and a strong relationship with Christ. We make an effort to go in depth intellectually, encouraging debate about controversial and sensitive issues.

An Orthodox Christian’s Reflections on Abortion

This is a pro-life article by a pro-life author. This article will not, however, lay out arguments against abortion. I rather want to use the topic of abortion to muse on what I believe to be an even larger issue.

The Worst Argument of All

worst argument ever

“You are not pro-life; you are pro-birth!” It is a common objection that the pro-life movement faces. In this article I will argue that this argument is not only fallacious and illogical, but also condescending, pathological, and destructive. It is the worst political argument ever made, and this fact should be common knowledge. I will not attempt to state the argument in my own words, because my extreme bias against it will likely butcher the point one way or another. Joan Chittister, a Catholic nun, provides the most well-known statement of this argument; thus I will represent it with a … Continue reading “The Worst Argument of All”

Abortion and the Utility Monster

Morning Walk is hosting a trip to the annual March for Life at the National Mall on January 18. This is the first in a series of articles focusing on the issue of abortion. This article does not make a case against abortion per se. Rather, it counters a common argument in support of abortion.
