June 07 2017 By dvirtue A Faithless UK and Resurgent Islam: The Perfect Storm

While so much of the West can be described in such terms, the UK is a clear example of this.

In fact, one of America's most infamous abortion doctors, Dr. Willie Parker of Mississippi, has made such a claim in his new book, Life's Work: A Moral Argument for Choice.
