A Basket of Dreadfuls

by

Dreadfuls: Catholic scandals, lying about Zika, and animal personhood It is not all that surprising that we seem to be living in an environment slowly sinking into total madness. Individual egos appear to have made facts a non sequitur in the quest to satisfy personal concepts of what is and is not right. Catholics for […]

Why the Prophetic Voice of Pope Paul VI Still Matters

by

Those of us who live in prosperous countries may not realize the full impact of the contraceptive ideology around the world. You know the ideology I mean: everyone old enough to give meaningful consent is entitled to unlimited sex without a live baby showing up. We tend to think governments should allow people to obtain […]

We Must Obey God Rather Than Men

by

At the time that I am writing these words 200 Canadians have been euthanized under Canada’s new assisted suicide law. The medical killings begin to mount. One might think the battle to save suicidal sick and disabled people is lost. One Catholic bioethicist stated this defeatism. A May 1st 2016 article appeared in the Catholic […]

World Suicide Prevention Day (But Not for the Sick and Disabled)

by

September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day! It’s a time to promote suicide prevention for people everywhere — except the sick and disabled. Depending on where they live, they get help killing themselves. In Canada, we now have legal assisted suicide for Canadians “who have a serious and incurable illness, disease or disability.” I meet […]

Pro-Life Heroine Mother Teresa Will Be Declared a Saint

by

Mother Teresa will be declared a Saint by Pope Francis in a special ceremony on Sunday at the Vatican. The pro-life heroine skillfully exploited her celebrity status to propel the pro-life cause internationally like no one else before her or since. The four feet tall Albanian nun was never afraid to speak truth to power, […]

Pro-Choice Puritans

by

For a very short time, Puritanism was the dominant religion in America. The need to populate a large continent led to lots of immigration of lots of people from different religions. Since then, we Americans have developed a sardonic definition of “Puritan:” a person with the nagging feeling that somewhere, someone is having fun. We […]

In Christ, Our Suffering Will One Day Make Sense

by

When I met Moira (not her real name) she was completely broken-hearted. As the old song says, “I can tell by your eyes, you’ve probably been crying forever.” That was Moira. This forty-two year old mother had developed severe chronic progressive multiple sclerosis which put her into a wheelchair within a year of her diagnosis. […]

Gender Ideology Leads to Child Abuse: Pediatricians

by

“Facts – not ideology – determine reality,” the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) said in a warning to legislators and educators about the dangers of surgical and medical sex change operations to children. “Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child […]

“Lord, help us follow the example of your Son’s patience and endurance. May we face all life’s difficulties with confidence and faith.” — Christian Prayer, Liturgy of the Hours.

New IPPF Report Gloats Over New Abortion Numbers

by

Steven W. Mosher also contributed to this article. The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) reports that its affiliates ended the lives of nearly one million unborn children in 2015. In all 964,325, unborn children were terminated by chemical and surgical abortion by IPPF just last year alone. A million of anything is a staggering number. […]

Sex Is Easy

by

Sex is easy. Obvious statement, so what’s the point? Birds do it. Beasts do it. Humans do it. There are those who prowl about the world pursuing sexual prey, consuming and discarding conquests like they were earning points in some sick game, attempting to satisfy a voracious carnal urge with little concern of consequence or […]

Zika Virus Opportunists

by

The headlines and lead stories on the latest Zika virus outbreak are concerning, especially to those who are pregnant or have young children. One report tells readers: “The World Health Organization has just declared the Zika virus to be a public health emergency. There’s good reason to believe that Zika causes a severe birth defect […]

CBC’s Anti-Disability Prejudice Symptomatic of Larger Exclusion

by

Up until 1991, I worked for the Canadian federal Commission promoting employment equity in the workplace for Canadians with disabilities. One of the worst of offenders of disability employment discrimination was the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). Every year the federal human rights commission filed its annual report in the Canadian parliament showing the CBC failed BOMBED […]

Punish the Rapist, Welcome the Child: Interview

Lianna Rebolledo was 12 years old when two men kidnapped her while she was walking to a local shopping mall. Nine months later she gave birth to a baby girl.  Today she travels to shelters all over Latin America giving hope to girls pregnant from rape by sharing her story. I sat down with Lianna […]

Self-Regulation Science Doesn’t Work

by

Scientists love to give themselves “ethical guidelines” — only to “reevaluate” and revise those guidelines when they are no longer convenient. A perfect recent example of this came this May when scientists in two separate studies reported keeping embryos alive, healthy and developing for 12-13 days. In both studies the embryos grew autonomously and began […]

Get the U.S. Out of the United Nations Population Fund

by

The U.S. Government wastes billions on programs and initiatives that American taxpayers don’t want and certainly don’t need. But no example of government waste is more disgraceful than the tens of millions of dollars handed over each year to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)—an organization that for decades has been working hand-in-glove with China’s […]

Christian Responses to Medical Killing

by

A monstrous notion has become law. Assisting in the suicides of sick and disabled Canadians is legally permitted. It is now a new right — the right to death. The pied pipers of this new right use misleading euphemisms such as medical assistance in dying (MAID). A more accurate, precise and honest description of this […]

Celebrating the Bloodlust

by

When the United States Supreme Court handed down its pro-abortion ruling on June 27 of this year, pro-death groups across the land celebrated. The Court basically struck down two provisions in a Texas law because, in its words, the pro-life restrictions created an “undue burden on abortion access.” Thus the macabre champagne toasts and the […]

Same Sex Parenting Increases Depression in Children

by

Our relationship with our biological parents influences our happiness long after we’ve flown the nest. So says a new study showing how those raised by same-sex parents experience significantly more depression, obesity, and other problems in young adulthood than their peers. In the first study to examine children raised by same-sex parents into early adulthood, […]

Elite Women Wage Social Warfare on Everywoman

by

So a radical feminist and two childless women walk into a courtroom. How do you expect them to rule on abortion or contraception? Their lives as they know them, depend on both. In Whole Woman’s Health vs. Hellerstedt, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Texas law regulating abortion clinics as if they were any ordinary […]

California’s Assisted Suicide Law: Are Some Lives Not Worth Living, or are All Lives Precious?

by

At what point can we say that a life no longer matters? Is it at the point when medical expenses become too costly or burdensome for relatives? Is it at the point when someone feels they have outlived their usefulness, or are just not able to do the things they love to do anymore? For […]

Abstinence Education Works, Condoms Don’t: New Teen Pregnancy Data

by

New evidence from the United States suggests abstinence education is a reason why teen pregnancy has fallen to historically low rates. Nearly sixty percent of high school students had never had sex, up from 46% in 1991.  Meanwhile, another new report links condom giveaways in schools with increases in teen pregnancy. This investigation of the […]

Don’t Feed the Trolls – It Just Encourages Them

As an observer of the human species, I believe I have discovered a new type. I call them “paid internet protesters,” or “PIPs” in internet-speak, who are all armchair culture warriors. Dr. Rachel Lu, a senior contributor at The Federalist, wrote an article called, “The LGBT Movement Will Self-Destruct.” My response was titled, “The LGBT […]

Today’s Betrayal of Women by the Female Block on SCOTUS

by

If ever there were a law that so embodied the original argument in favor of abortion, it was the Texas law struck down today by the U.S. Supreme Court. If ever there were a mockery of all that the early proponents of abortion held dear, it was made by the united votes of the three […]
