Abortion’s Hard Case Exceptions

by

When it comes to the hot-button issue of abortion, there are some questions that make even the staunchest pro-lifer uncomfortable:  What do you say to the woman who finds herself pregnant due to rape?  What do you do with the adolescent girl who is impregnated by her father, brother, or uncle?  What if it was […]

Abortion: A Private Matter Between a Woman and Her…Vending Machine?

by

At Shippensburg University, female students who hook-up for drunken sex on Saturday will find it easy to dispose of just-conceived babies on Monday or Tuesday. A quick trip to the vending machine is all it takes. Easy. Kind of like buying a bag of Doritos. Women who wake up in unfamiliar beds or sober up […]

Abortion: There’s an App for That

I know it’s cliché, but bear with me. I have a point to make. Whole Woman’s Health that operates in Texas and Maryland is proud to announce the launch of an “app.” They officially launched a new mobile website in January so women can make appointments for abortions and learn about their services more easily. This […]

Humor me for a moment and just imagine if the following purely fictional (at least as of this writing) HHS press release was issued: Affordable Care Act Ensures Elders Receive End-of-Life Services at No Additional Cost WASHINGTON—The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced today that it is adopting additional Guidelines for Elder Care […]

Seeing Pink

by

For the past several years, it is positively maddening to shop during the month of October.  I really do love the color pink—in roses especially, and we had a pink living room once, and of course both of our girls went through the pink princess stage—but seeing those pink ribbons, pink Cheerios boxes, balloons, NFL […]

The Three Deadliest Words in the World: “It’s a Girl!”

by

It’s a Girl: The Three Deadliest Words in the World is a documentary on the 200 million missing girls in the world today. Aborted, killed after birth or abandoned because they are girls. Deeply-rooted prejudice against girls and ill-conceived government policies against human beings produced this mass slaughter. I haven’t seen the film, but it’s […]

Amelia Rivera, the Disabled and the Sanctity of Life

by

Recently, local media covered the story of Amelia Rivera, a young girl with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome reportedly denied a kidney transplant by a local hospital. Amelia’s syndrome results in serious developmental delays, and according to her parents, the hospital declined a transplant due to her diminished mental ability and shortened lifespan. It’s unwise to assume that […]

Last year that amount was roughly $680,000 and $580,000 the year before. Now, the Nation’s largest breast cancer awareness organization says it will officially end its financial support for the Nation’s largest […]

Senator Marco Rubio Introduces Bill to Overturn HHS Mandate

by

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty applauds Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) for introducing a bill protecting the conscience of millions of individuals against the Obama Administration’s abortion-drug mandate. Unlike other pending bills that address conscience issues, Senator Rubio’s bill—The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 2012—is narrowly focused and establishes a firm religious exemption in the […]

I Shouldn’t Have Waited for the Bishops

by

Are you like me? Reading the coverage of the HHS mandate for insurance to cover contraception and sterilization and wondering why the bishops are only now speaking out against it when citizens have been forced to pay taxes that fund contraception, sterilization and even abortion for a long time. “Hey, it’s about time!” Yes, this mandate […]

Earlier this month, a 32-year-old pregnant woman, known only as Mary Moe, narrowly avoided being subjected to a forced abortion and sterilization–at the hands of her own parents.

Reverberations of Roe v. Wade Go Far Beyond Abortion

by

Thirty-nine years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in Roe v. Wade, that the laws outlawing abortion in Texas were unconstitutional because a woman had a right to privacy, guaranteed by the Constitution.  Suddenly, the unborn had no legal protection in the United States.  But Roe v. Wade did not just deny legal protection to […]

The Clarity of Clare

by

Every parent should consider their child a gift and a miracle, because every human life is an unrepeatable, absolutely incredible, physical manifestation of God’s image and His love in this world. Our daughter Clare is a miracle because of that truth; but there’s something even more miraculous about her story that merits repeating. In this […]

When Life is Alienable

It’s like peeling up the edge of tape. The instant a society places more value on some human lives than others, it’s only a matter of time until that edge has been picked, pried and yanked enough to leave unsuspecting people grieving and wondering what happened to their right to life, liberty and the pursuit […]

I suffered a sneak attack last week while sitting at the head table for a dinner at Providence’s prestigious Hope Club (my husband Toshi was the evening’s speaker). Surrounded by the grandeur of the old place (still Christmas-clad) and enjoying a good meal, I was happy to be placed between a Navy fighter pilot getting […]

It’s More Than Talk

It is a constant chant from those who would like the defenders of unborn life to disappear, and leave them undisturbed in their killing. “Your concern for life does not go any further than the uterus.” “All you want is to stop the abortion, and then you abandon the mother.” “You don’t care about the […]

Special Education – “Spirituality” In Our Public Schools?

I heard a fantastic homily awhile back – well, the first part of it anyway.  Father’s initial comments set me on a train of thought that I will pass along in the body of the article.  Father asked us to contemplate the incredible gifts that God has given us.  He pointed out that we humans […]

Spain’s New Government Remains Curiously Silent on Defense of Traditional Values

It was predictable that Spain’s parliamentary elections last November would end in victory for Spain’s conservative People’s Party after the abject failure of the Spanish Socialist Party in combating rising unemployment and languid economic growth during the economic crisis. Similarly, it was thought to be predictable that a conservative victory would yield major gains for […]
