How can Doritos be guilty of “humanizing” a human? The lunacy boggles the mind.[click to continue...]
“In fact, from the very first instant of the human being’s life is characterized by the fact that it is human life and for this reason possesses its own dignity everywhere and in spite of all (cf. Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Dignitas Personae). Otherwise, we should always be threatened by the risk of an exploitative use of science, with the inevitable consequence of slipping into arbitrary decisions, discrimination and the financial interest of the strongest.[click to continue...]
Or how about the fact that these women are coming face-to-face with the father of their future child? So what if they didn’t pick him out of a catalog?
At least they get to put a face to their benefactor. They get to meet the stranger, whose baby they are paying him to carry for themselves![click to continue...]
The Supreme Court decision of 1965 may not have been considered in its day a monumental event. However, that did not change the fact that its horrendous decision made a mess of things morally.[click to continue...]

For instance, the alkaline properties of crocodile dung supposedly made it useful for a barrier method and possible spermicide. All a woman of ancient Egypt had to do was stick a ball of it up you-know-where.
Ancient Chinese women would drink mercury to try to prevent becoming pregnant. Little did they know back then, in all likelihood, the brain and kidney damage they were causing!
