“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 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...]
Human ingenuity has turned reproductive science into a legalized form of eugenics.
The Northwestern study co-author, Dr. Eve Feinberg is quoted in the university report as admitting as much:
“There are no tools currently available that tell us if it’s a good quality egg… Often we don’t know whether the egg or embryo is truly viable until we see if a pregnancy ensues.
“That’s the reason this is so transformative. If we have the ability up front to see what is a good egg and what’s not, it will help us know which embryo to transfer, avoid a lot of heartache and achieve pregnancy much more quickly.”
Undoubtedly, we have entered into the Brave New World.[click to continue...]
For, in this backwards world, marriage exists solely for the emotional benefit of the adults involved. Children are an afterthought—an accessory, like a speed boat or a pet, at best. They are not essentially, necessary, or even a consideration in this remade world.
If there is no such thing as a ‘husband’ or a ‘wife,’ then there is no longer a ‘father’ or a ‘mother’ either. The entire domestic family, therefore, crumbles away.[click to continue...]
“These techniques (heterologous artificial insemination and fertilization) infringe the child’s right to be born of a father and mother known to him and bound to each other by marriage. They betray the spouses’ ‘right to become a father and a mother only through each other,’” (Catechism 2376).[click to continue...]
Each of these stories sounds like something straight out of a science fiction novel.[click to continue...]
The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) makes an immensely important distinction, “A child is not something owed to one, but is a gift” (paragraph 2378). Thus, a couple unable to conceive does face a difficult cross to bear, but does not have a “right” to conceive a child outside of the conjugal act (CCC 2377).[click to continue...]
The culture of death remains pervasive in our culture. When they peddle death, broken families, and the such, it is hard for them to remain coherent when they speak on matters of morals. Inspired by a blogger I enjoy reading at LifeSiteNews.com, named Ben Johnson, I came up with 12 beliefs the culture of death […][click to continue...]
One in six couples is said to face infertility issues. Couples incapable of conceiving on their own carry a heavy load of disappointment, confusion, anger, or even guilt. They rightly maintain a desire to bear and to raise children. Barrenness remains a cross for married couples to bear, which the Catholic Church takes seriously. What […][click to continue...]
