MY RADIO SHOW/PODCAST HAS
COVERED IMPORTANT TOPICS
As we move into the last months of 2022, the urge to look back (a not altogether welcome impulse) creeps upon me.
The disruptions of this year — owing to COVID, some technical issues, and other concerns — are most apparent in this blog. You who follow my humble scribblings haven’t had much to follow lately — for which I apologize abjectly.
I’ve been able to keep reasonably close to a production schedule for my radio show, “Free Expression.” And so I’m happy to draw your attention to my latest episodes, which cover a number of important topics.
Take some time to sample a few. I particularly urge those of you in Michigan to catch my latest (Episode 63), in which I speak with Dr. Monica Miller, a longtime anti-abortion activist and founder of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society. Monica has some hair-raising insights into the dangers posed by Proposal 3, a dishonorable effort to amend the state constitution appearing on the current election ballot.
For one thing, Proposal 3 would legalize all types of abortion — including dismemberment, or so-called “partial-birth abortion” — right up to immediately before delivery. For another, it would lay a legal foundation for wholesale mutilation and sterilization of gender-conflicted children, without parental consent.
This is something which must be stopped. And Monica is rallying the troops to do just that.
Her interview and other provocative discussions can be accessed via Podbean, the well known podcasting platform. Just go here…

Abortion advocates are nothing if not deceptive. All the ad materials promoting Proposal 3 tout “a woman’s right to choose.” This, of course, is merely an attempt to distract from the bloody murder that’s being chosen.
Britain’s left-leaning Guardian newspaper recently offered another glimpse of such propagandistic slight-of-hand. It featured a photo of cotton-like human tissue, claiming that this is what an unborn child looks like at less than 10 weeks gestational development. Interestingly, the lie was exposed by a “pro-choice” advocate who apparently is also an honest person…
