Their New Euphemism for Abortion? Voluntary Miscarriage:  What Are Your Thoughts About That?

Their New Euphemism for Abortion? Voluntary Miscarriage: What Are Your Thoughts About That?

Author J. Budziszewski calls it a diversionary tactic of remorse. Abortion providers and seekers try to deny what they are doing by calling it something else. They exhibit remorse as they cover up their misdeed with sugar-coated language.

I am not doing what I am obviously doing. I am doing something else. Something harmless, defensible, maybe even honorable. Yeah, that’s what I am doing.

No one wants to restrict another person’s freedom, so I am merely supporting choice. No one should be forced into anything, I am just backing her decision not to remain a mother. Yeah, that’s all.

Is There a Such Thing as Pregnancy Disease? This Late-Term Abortionist Argues Yes!

Is There a Such Thing as Pregnancy Disease? This Late-Term Abortionist Argues Yes!

Pregnancy, according to this late-term abortionist, “may be defined as an illness requiring medical supervision through (a) cultural traditions, functional or explicit, (b) circumstantial self-definition of illness or (c) individual illness behavior; [and] may be treated by evacuation of the uterine contents…”

Why All Pro-Life People Ought To Be Single Issue Voters

Why All Pro-Life People Ought To Be Single Issue Voters

If a candidate running for office claimed he was pro-terrorism, could he still gain your vote?

No, you say?

Would you bother to ask him his stance on gun control or on immigration?

Still no, you say? Is it because his support of terrorism eliminates him from your consideration? Great, it should.

But why is it so few faithful Catholics and Christians draw such a hard line on so-called “pro-choice” candidates? After all, they support terrorism of the womb: the slaughter of innocent babies.

On the Importance of Voting: Is It a Moral Obligation to Cast a Ballot?

On the Importance of Voting: Is It a Moral Obligation to Cast a Ballot?

Can you guess who said this?:

“Democracy is not a substitute for morality. Its value stands – or falls – with the values which it embodies and promotes. Only tireless promotion of the truth about the human person can infuse democracy with the right values. This is what Jesus meant when he asked us to be a leaven in society.

“American Catholics have long sought to assimilate into U.S. cultural life.

“But in assimilating, we have too often been digested. We have been changed by our culture too much, and we have changed it not enough.”

Pro-Life Dilemma in Ethical Voting: Is It Morally Licit to Support Laws Merely Restricting Abortions?

Pro-Life Dilemma in Ethical Voting: Is It Morally Licit to Support Laws Merely Restricting Abortions?

Some point out that to pass a law that limits abortions is tantamount to endorsing child murder, so long as those restrictions are met.

For instance, in the case of a 20-week abortion ban. The law says any baby 20 weeks or older cannot be murdered. So, does that mean it is morally licit to murder babies 19 weeks old or younger?

Their solution would be to pass laws that make abortion illegal (as it ought to be). Anything less, to them, appears to be cooperation with evil.

Here’s How We Decided to Join the Latin Mass Society

Here’s How We Decided to Join the Latin Mass Society

After three years there, I had taken on many roles. I was the assistant youth minister, a Catechist, a Eucharistic Minister, a lector, and a Eucharistic Adoration Church-closer-upper. Yet, God made it very, very clear to me and to my wife that we had to walk away.

We had been given the impression by our priests there that we were the all-star Catholics. After all, we showed up every Sunday, we tithed, and we volunteered at the parish. But my wife and I will be the first to tell you, we still needed a lot of help.

We were searching for something, any parish to help us to grow in our faith. But where would we go?

Is Your Husband Addicted to Porn?:  Let Me Suggest THIS as a Possible Solution!

Is Your Husband Addicted to Porn?: Let Me Suggest THIS as a Possible Solution!

Is your husband addicted to porn?

If so, did you ever think there could be a link to the use of birth control within your marriage?

If you use or support the use of birth control, then on what grounds do you oppose pornography usage?

Sure, using contraception may be something you and your spouse consent to, and perhaps you do not consent to your spouse viewing pornography. But why not?

If the conjugal act can have the procreative end separated from the unitive end, then what makes your spousal sex necessary, but the porn use not wanted?

How Convincing Is the Pro-Choice Claim to Bodily Autonomy in Defense of Abortion?

How Convincing Is the Pro-Choice Claim to Bodily Autonomy in Defense of Abortion?

“Who are you to say what I can or can’t do with my body?”

This remains the abortion advocates’ most common argument these days.

Their argument might seem plausible on the face of it. They say a woman who becomes unintentionally pregnant shouldn’t be forced to carry a baby against her will. The woman can exert her autonomy over her body, in place of harboring a child she didn’t want, their thinking goes.

Is it convincing? How do you respond?

Here’s my retort.

Compassion and Choices Group Celebrating Brittany Maynard:  The Woman Who Intends to Kill Herself

Compassion and Choices Group Celebrating Brittany Maynard: The Woman Who Intends to Kill Herself

It is true, this woman requires empathy for the cancer diagnosis she received. Back in April 2014 she was told she had six months until the doctors expected her to die to the disease.

But why does she deserve compassion for her diagnosis? Precisely because life—all life—has intrinsic value. For her to learn she is likely to die before reaching an elderly age means her life will be shorter than many others.

We should mourn her losing her life, while she maintains a desire to live. Why are we celebrating someone who does not want to live anyway?

Why Would Sodomy Always Be Wrong, Even Anal Sex in Marriage by a Husband and Wife?

Why Would Sodomy Always Be Wrong, Even Anal Sex in Marriage by a Husband and Wife?

Anal sex in marriage rebels against nature because the act attempts to use of sexual organs in acts that are, in themselves, contrary to their purpose. Homosexual sex, by definition, remains sterile—everywhere and always. Thus, the primary purpose of the act is not just frustrated—it’s completely unobtainable and ignored.
