The New Weapon: Prenatal Testing

Dear Friends for Life: A new worldwide strategy ignites a well-thoughtout war on unborn babies. It’s called “Prenatal Testing”. I refer to fetal testing as a “New Weapon” which selects and annihilates a certain class of human beings. The selection is an unborn child with an abnormality, disability, or male or female. This current eugenic attitude is expanding and, sad to say, children with disabilities are its first target. For example in Denmark, only 2 percent of unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are born; the rest are aborted. In Iceland, it’s 100 percent, France 77, United Kingdom 90, and the United States is estimated around 67 percent. This deadly discrimination is a growing epidemic. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI use to worry about the "new frontiers of genetics and the risk of eugenics". Now it has become a reality. Continue reading at Fr. Jerry's Blog...

Ethical Perspectives

New! Could A Preemptive Strike on North Korea or Iran Be Morally Justified?

Robert Kennedy
If mutually assured destruction no longer seems effective in dealing with the threat of nuclear attack by North Korea and Iran, what military options remain and what moral principles can guide their employment?

New! Religious Discrimination in Canada

Derek Ross
Canada takes pride in being a progressive nation, but our government is relying on the same tired excuses for religious discrimination that the United States Supreme Court dismissed more than fifty years ago.

New! Notre Dame Swallows the Pill

Gerard V. Bradley
The University has announced it is to be the sole funder, unaccompanied proprietor, and director of distribution of what it has solemnly declared for years to be an immoral service. But the Holy Spirit is not a consequentialist. God does not want us to weigh up pros and cons of adhering to the moral truth. And the greatest respect we can show others is to bear faithful witness to the truth.

New! The Philosophical Contradictions of the Transgender Worldview

Ryan T. Anderson
The thinking of transgender activists is inherently confused and filled with internal contradictions. Activists never acknowledge those contradictions. Instead, they opportunistically rely on whichever claim is useful at any given moment.

New! Casualties of a Social, Psychological, and Medical Fad: The Dangers of Transgender Ideology in Medicine

Daniel Payne
Dr. Paul McHugh is optimistic that the ascendency of transgender ideology is a passing fad. Yet the damage that transgender ideology can wreak in even just ten or fifteen years - the hormones, the surgery, the irreversible decisions, the mutilated bodies - is considerable.

"Medical Futility": Help or Hobgoblin in End-of-Life Discussions?

Grattan Brown
Because it is often used imprecisely, the term "futile" can cause confusion and exacerbate conflict in disagreements about end-of-life care. It is more helpful for patients, families, and physicians to discuss the benefits and burdens of medical procedures

Cardinal Dolan's Pink Shamrock

Judie Brown
The beautiful green shamrock is equated with Irish pride no matter where one goes, and on March 17, St. Patrick's Day, the "wearin' of the green" has always been so much fun that even those of us who are not Irish love being Irish for the day. But March 17, 2015, will be different - at least in New York City - thanks to the politically correct Catholic cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Chemical Abortion and RU-486/PG
Why it is Dangerous and Unnecessary

Germain Kopaczynski
Let's be honest. When used as an abortifacient, RU-486/PG is not real medicine. It is part of the culture of death that we are called upon to battle.

Thoughts on Fundamentalism and Dogmatism

Douglas P. McManaman
Reality is always much richer than we currently realize, which is why science continues to develop. Very few good scientists are "dogmatists"; they know that eggs placed in today's "scientific basket" will likely be overturned tomorrow, and thus they have a greater appreciation for the tentativeness of truth. Fundamentalists do not for a minute believe that truth is tentative.

The way of the cross: remember

Tom Bartolomeo
God doesn't have a memory but we do. God doesn't need a memory but we do. God doesn't forget but we do. God knows everything all at once and doesn't need to recall anything. When Jesus took on, however, the nature of a human being living in time he separated himself from the eternal bliss and glory of heaven. That for Christ was the worst of punishments much worse than being "driven into the desert . . . to be tempted by the devil for forty days and forty nights". We should remember, too, that God is not the ruler of this world. Satan is. And some would unwittingly befriend Satan is this world.

Truth and Freedom under Attack in America

Judie Brown
Two days ago the United States House of Representatives voted 245 to 182 to pass the Conscience Protection Act "to prevent governmental discrimination against providers of health services who decline involvement in abortion, and for other purposes."

Obama's Gendercide Hypocrisy

Judie Brown
In 1973, the Supreme Court told the citizens of our country that it's legal to kill a preborn child. Now, with the ability to determine if that preborn child is a boy or a girl, our citizens are being told it is legal to kill that child if the parents are not happy with the sex of the baby. So a child can be murdered just because she is a girl or he is a boy.

Government Intervention into the Health Care Industry

Jeremiah R. Grosse
The American people want quality medical service at a fair price. Physicians want to offer that quality service; however, the prices are not under their control for those who choose to remain beholden to third party providers. The options are few and the choices are very clear. Unless something is done to change and improve the health care system as we know it things will only get worse. Looking at the Canadian model or even the model currently offered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts provides evidence that the universal health care idea is not the way to go.

Why does the CDC insist on alternative facts about natural family planning?

Carolyn Moynihan
Women and medical professionals deserve accurate information about effective ways to prevent pregnancy based on the best research available.

The Kettle Calling the Pot Fake:
When is Cloning not "Cloning"? When Both Sides Play Politics - With Human Lives

Dianne N. Irving
There's a brave new and very interesting piece just out on how badly science has become politicized - i.e, corrupted -- over the years, especially now with the Presidential election count-down in full swing, and with politicians jumping on whatever is the most politically correct bandwagon they can find. ... While I have to agree with the author's concerns (we'll call him Kettle) about the use of waffling and fake science in the supposed cloning 'bans' proposed by the Pots, if truth be told, there's enough concern to go around for both the Pots and the Kettles.
