Abortion is not a choice which involves only the woman who makes it. It has consequences for the child in her womb–life or death consequences. We must help and defend both the child and the mother. “Nor shall you stand by idly when your neighbor’s life is at stake” (Leviticus 19: 16). Over four thousand tiny lives are at stake this very day because of abortion! Are we really Bible-believing Christians if we remain silent any longer?[click to continue...]
Brett Kavanaugh got into some trouble recently for referring to birth control as an abortifacient. Many were quick to criticize him for his inaccuracies, but was he really that inaccurate? Understanding this issue requires a deeper look at the terminology and science involved.[click to continue...]
Mother calls on all parents to bring their children home. She encourages parents of all education, income, and social levels to homeschool their children. She highlights the common claim that homeschooling isn’t for everybody. She again challenges parents, saying it is not only possible, but necessary, for everyone to homeschool their children. Mother continues, quoting the inside cover of Get Out Now, “Too much is at stake. You don’t get a do-over on childhood.”[click to continue...]
You may think there is no way an abortionist would do that, but Scheidler says you might be surprised. “It should be a genuine invitation,” he encourages. “Pro-lifers may be surprised to discover that the abortionist may actually welcome the opportunity to try to justify his position on abortion and will take the invitation seriously” (emphasis added).[click to continue...]
I remember listening to a sermon from the pastor at our former parish years ago on Respect Life Sunday. Within it, he admitted his reluctance to preach on the topic of abortion or other life issues. He explained he was afraid of unsettling anyone who may be post-abortive (those having participated in an abortion in the past).
His mindset is not uncommon. I have heard anecdotally from other pro-life Catholics this is the excuse they hear priests making all too often.[click to continue...]
“A true and proper right to a child would be contrary to the child’s dignity and nature. The child is not an object to which one has a right, nor can he be considered as an object of ownership: rather, a child is a gift, “the supreme gift” and the most gratuitous gift of marriage, and is a living testimony of the mutual giving of his parents. For this reason, the child has the right, as already mentioned, to be the fruit of the specific act of the conjugal love of his parents; and he also has the right to be respected as a person from the moment of his conception.”[click to continue...]
The message of Jonah is one filled with irony. First the sailors and then later the Assyrians are all so quick to recognize the power of God and the need to serve him, once confronted with the gravity of the situation (1:16; 3:6-9). And yet, Jonah, who claims to be the one serving the Lord, does not practice God as he ought to. Let that not be said of us.[click to continue...]
Is anyone really going to hold their breath waiting on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade?
I realize folks are excited that a majority of the current justices were appointed by Republican presidents (5-4).
They remain hopeful that someday soon the Supreme Court will, in fact, overturn Roe v. Wade.[click to continue...]
One prominent Catholic author and speaker recently took the extreme position of calling for the debate to be over: all Catholics ought to be practicing NFP, he claims.[click to continue...]
In the article she wrote, Dr. Wen describes the expanding her and her husband’s family as her “deepest desire.” How can the president of the nation’s largest abortion provider admit she (and thereby other women) deeply desire motherhood and family life? The backbone of this evil organization remains set on eradicating motherhood from the face of the earth, in the name of equality with men. It seeks to eliminate family life as an institution of society. I imagine the Planned Parenthood executives were pulling their hair out.[click to continue...]
