It's war: which side are you on?

The incomparable Mr. Warren:
Granted, I am a partisan. But I became one through the gradual discovery this was the case: that a political contest glibly tagged "right versus left" has become -- is today -- truly a war, between what a recent pope characterized as "the culture of life" and "the culture of death." On every political question I can think of, the Left prescribes, and is successfully imposing, policies that are the opposite of fecund -- whether the thing to be sacrificed is merely wealth and savings, or (in the case of contraception, abortion, euthanasia, even "same-sex marriage") the very means of reproducing our species. Moreover, I find each policy advanced by "fait accompli" in the absence of serious public discussion and with the help of a propaganda (from "global warming" to the arguments for "Obamacare") that is essentially deceitful.
