I Am a Christian and I Had an Abortion (Part 1)
7...14...21...28, 29, 30, 31... 32. Thirty-two days since my last cycle. I was late. In fifteen years I had never been late. Which only meant... "Wife? What's wrong?" My husband calls me "wife," I call him "husband." We were engaged for nearly two years and calling him "fiancé" had tasted like vinegar in my mouth, even worse so when he was "boyfriend." Those nouns just hadn't cut it when it came to what he meant to me. So when we got married I got in the habit of happily calling him "husband;" i...

I Am a Christian and I Had an Abortion (Part 2)
I still had to wait another seven days before I could even be seen. In the meantime, I tormented myself by going online and seeing what developments would occur in my pregnancy and the cons of having an abortion. I found Christian propaganda—something about how abortions cause breast cancer. So keeping that in mind, I cut off communication... with everyone, because most everyone I knew was a Bible thumping, church-going Christian. I didn't want to risk anyone finding out and trying to stop me. I...

Psych and Prejudice Pt. 2
Greek life is often the focal point of a lot of student life on most large state campuses. Smaller campuses, like my own, do not have sororities or fraternities. From an outside perspective, Greek life seems like either an amazing way to make lifelong friends and promote certain acts of scholarship and service or it seems very superficial. So, what's the deal with sororities? If you took the chance to view the video at the top of the page, and I highly suggest you do, you will see a recruitment ...
