“Developed into a system by Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), autonomous morality in effect deifies each person’s free will. In the Kantian understanding of freedom, liberty means not only freedom of choice but freedom of independence, on the assumption that one cannot retain free will and still be under the command of another’s law. To save freedom, Kant demanded autonomy, but by demanding autonomy he destroyed all real obligation and therefore all real law.”[click to continue...]
How can Doritos be guilty of “humanizing” a human? The lunacy boggles the mind.[click to continue...]
Veteran sidewalk counselors tried to warn me up front. I tried to ignore them. I didn’t want them to be correct.
For, if what they said was true, it would surely be deflating. It would also stand opposed to my immense ego and overconfidence in my power of dissuasion.
What am I referring to? What was this inconvenient truth about abortion sidewalk counseling I didn’t want to accept?[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 porn industry rides on the coat tails of the contraceptive industry. Doors that the crude, disgusting porn pushers could never venture into have been blasted wide open thanks to the contraception industry.
Pornographic images are commonplace in movies, HBO television shows, television commercials, and pop culture magazines. Having half-naked women on billboards all over major cities would have never been allowed a few decades ago.
But thanks to the deadening of the senses contraception has caused, pornography has been permitted to infiltrate nearly every corner of our culture.[click to continue...]
Just who carries the burden of being morally responsible for the abortion holocaust?
Over 3,000 babies are dismembered in their mothers’ wombs in this country alone on an average day.
Who bears the burden of permitting this abortion holocaust to take place?
You would do well, then, to join the pro-life movement. The movement has a wide range of ages and appeals to both genders. But largely, it is a younger generation that represents the pro-life convictions in this country.
As such, with you likely being young and searching for a spouse, there resides a natural fit.[click to continue...]
Then Pope Saint John Paul II ties it all up and directs us back to governmental intrusions, like the two child policy in China.
“Thus the Church condemns as a grave offense against human dignity and justice all those activities of governments or other public authorities which attempt to limit in any way the freedom of couples in deciding about children.”[click to continue...]
Those entering medical school likely have high hopes of performing masterful surgeries. They have the expectation they will bring healing to their patients. They look forward to the challenge each day brings on the job.
Not much of that holds true for an abortion doctor. For the most part, his workday is just like the last 100 before them. He does the same baby-killing procedure over and over again.
In fact, he is not really practicing medicine at all.[click to continue...]
In God’s providence He blessed you with the gift of a child, despite your intention to prevent that from happening.
Now, He is the supreme authority, so who are you to question His decisions?
He also crafted you in your mother’s womb (Isaiah 44:2, Jeremiah 1:5, Psalm 139:13). He knows you better than anyone. He knows what you need and what will bring you the most happiness.[click to continue...]
