The op-ed admits “semantic gymnastics” are necessary to reconcile adherence to this “new ethic” on abortion. When everyone knows life begins at conception, they admit it is “ludicrous” to expect people to support abortion. To get over this barrier of the Natural Law, they say they have implemented a necessary “schizophrenic sort of subterfuge” to confuse themselves and others.[click to continue...]
What is the purpose of the press? What role do journalists play in our society? Are they doing their jobs?
To keep it simple, I will share with you the address Pope Pius XII made to the press delegation which visited the Vatican in April 1946.
As you read this, ask yourself just how well anyone in the mass media these days fulfills their duty as journalists to be truth tellers.[click to continue...]
“The quality of any civilization depends upon the nature of the thoughts its great minds bequeath to it” -Archbishop Sheen.[click to continue...]
“Original sin is not something positive. It is essentially the absence of divine grace. Now by the natural process of generation, parents can transmit human nature as they received it from their own parents. But they cannot, by this merely natural process, transmit supernatural grace which they received, not from their parents, but immediately and individually from God.”[click to continue...]
The CBC’s “Fact Sheet” also lists health risks to females selling their eggs, which include the following:
“Risks include Ovarian Hyper Stimulation syndrome (OHSS) due to superovulation, loss of fertility, ovarian torsion, blood clots, kidney disease, premature menopause, ovarian cysts, chronic pelvic pain, stroke, reproductive cancers, and in some cases, death.”[click to continue...]
Did you know the Bible foretold of a society that had “ungodly men” make “a covenant with death?”
You can read it in the Book of Wisdom, a book written about 1,000 years before the birth of Jesus Christ. I will share the passage with you below.
I hereby dare anyone claiming to be pro-choice to register on this site and to spend at least 30 minutes reading the testimonies of these post-abortive women. I then double-dog-dare you (a ‘90s reference) to then see abortion as a celebratory event. Those reading this who are pro-life, I encourage you to check out the testimonies so you can pray for these women.[click to continue...]
So, as we have just seen, in so many words, the great Doctor of the Church affirms the traditional, threefold ends of Matrimony are the begetting of offspring, the mutual help of the spouses, and the providing of a remedy against concupiscence.
Scripture affirms this last point as one of the advantages of being married, as well. In fact, we have it on the highest authority that one of the purposes of Holy Matrimony remains the curbing of sexual temptation.[click to continue...]
Why would a wife be obligated to give sex to her husband every time it is requested?
The answer to that question could go a few different directions.[click to continue...]
As the biographer relates, the sight of her lover’s dead body left a deep impression on the native of Montepulciano. She mourned the loss of Arsenio and then soon realized the peril of his soul in the afterlife. She realized she too had not lived a life of purity and might die at any time.
Thus, St. Margaret of Cortona had a radical conversion and set out to practice penance for the rest of her life in reparation for the sins she committed.[click to continue...]
Hopefully, everyone in that instance would agree that the child remains innocent and ought not to be murdered.
Once you agree on that in your discussion on abortion, you then ask your counterpart the crucial follow-up question when “Trotting Out a Toddler:” if the two-week-old baby ought not to be murdered, then why should the innocent baby in the womb be killed in the case of rape (or incest)?[click to continue...]
“If unborn life must be denied, its incriminating witness, language, must be denied with it,” DeMarco points out. Thus, pro-abortion advocates have to change their language to hide (from themselves?) their true motives. Not only do they have to dehumanize the unborn baby by calling him or her a ‘fetus,’ but they also have to pretend to themselves that social interconnectedness does not exist.[click to continue...]
