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...]
Pro-life hero and leader of Priests for Life, Fr. Frank Pavone makes a profound realization in his book, “Abolishing Abortion: How You Can Play a Part in Ending the Greatest Evil of Our Day.” He explains how the US government usurped God’s authority to take a life with the Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade.[click to continue...]
Say what you will about the man. But to steal a phrase from former VP Joe Biden, it remains “a big [expletive] deal” that the 45th President of these United States addressed the 45th Annual March for Life in Washington, DC.[click to continue...]

The right-to-life movement would be essentially erased, if pro-life advocates adopt Renkl’s short-sighted supposed solution.
Let’s begin by observing the most obvious error in her thinking. That is, by agreeing to not talk about the issues of abortion, contraception, so-called “gay marriage,” L.G.B.T. issues, and so forth, we would thus guarantee their further decaying of our culture. Only by shining a light into the darkness of sinful behavior does such behavior ever end. “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them,” the Bible instructs (Eph 5:11).[click to continue...]
We in the USA are accustomed to a couple falling in love, entering an engagement, and then having their wedding. Whereas, the routine in Biblical times did not follow this pattern. Those who do not understand the culture of Biblical times instead project their modern understandings back onto the text and end up with faulty translations.[click to continue...]
Those throwing vasectomy parties are, thus, guilty of scandalizing their friends and family. They are making light of a grave sin against their very nature as human beings. Those who attend such parties are culpable for doing so, as well. For they are condoning and encouraging those who commit to a future of sterile sex.[click to continue...]
