The US state of Kansas – which is largely represented by Republicans in Congress but which has a Democratic Governor – has decided in a referendum to protect abortion access, in what could be seen as a rebuff of the Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs. Although several states have moved to restrict abortion access since

The Catholic Church in the Anglosphere and western Europe is in no small part today being propped up by immigration, but this is not a long-term solution for the survival of the Church across the Western world. There are two key reasons for this: the first is the decline in Catholic affiliation in much of
