Indiana AG Targets Doctor who helped 10 year-old rape victim

[NOTE: Given that the core anti-abortion belief that abortion is murder, there are many of the movement’s zealots who are eager to see doctors and other medical personnel involved on trial, in prison, and/or on death row.

Quaker Book Review: “The Living Remnant” Rides Again

 

The Living Remnant & Other Quaker Tales. By “KKK,” (Edith Florence O’Brien.) Published by Headley Brothers in UK, 1900.

A Friend came across this book and passed along a link. It’s a series of four related stories about a tightly-knit (i. e., very insular) British Quaker meeting community, in about 1875. The “tales” portray, in sequence: an old-fashioned courtship; the subsequent wedding; the final dissolution of a stubbornly backward-looking Quaker faction, fixated on a version of the faith that time has quietly but remorselessly passed by; and then closes with the prospect of possible renewal as well as change.
