No Greater Love Than This
Love one another — that's what we're called to do, to make God visible because God is love and where there is love, there is God. We must spread this love in the world. It doesn't take much effort, I don't think, for any of us to reflect on what's happening in our world — the violence, the threat of war and if it happens, nuclear war and the destruction of our planet, if it ever happened. But the violence is everywhere. The threat of war becomes greater, it seems, almost each day.

Terri Schiavo's Family Applauds Court Decision To Resume Vincent Lambert's Basic Care
The Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network is reacting to the news of the French courts intervening to resume Vincent Lambert's feeding tube. Vincent Lambert, the man known as the "Terri Schiavo of France," would have been forcibly killed by starvation and dehydration if not for the French courts last minute decision to restore his basic care.

It is the Catholic Church, not Melinda Gates, who is the “pillar and foundation” of truth.

How To Respond To "when Does Life Begin?"
"We don't really know when life begins." Pro-choice activists use this reasoning to argue for abortion, claiming that the mother is a designated life, but the life of her preborn child is yet to be determined. In this video, Tara Sander Lee, a molecular geneticist and Director of Life Sciences for the Charlotte Lozier Institute, delivers a scientific response to this common argument and dives into the developmental stages of the preborn child.

“Excruciating Pain”

When was the last time I experienced pain? When was the last time I felt “Excruciating Pain“? These are questions that ran through my mind as I read the article “Medical Expert Confirms Unborn Children Feel Excruciating Pain During Abortions” by Dr. David Prentice of the Charlotte Lozier Institue. Dr. David Prentice clearly states that “science pretty conclusively demonstrates: Young babies still in the womb at 20 weeks…, and probably even earlier, do indeed feel pain, and in fact, may feel more intense pain than a newborn or an adult.” People feel pain. Newborn babies can feel pain. Fetuses can feel pain. There is no pain button which suddenly switches to “on” or “off” during the journey through the birth canal. “To feel pain” is a life long process for a human being. Continue reading at Fr.

Ethical Perspectives

New! Shouldn't We Permit Abortion Only to Save the Life of the Mother?

Brian Clowes
Due to the principle of the "double effect," surgical procedures that save the mother's life while causing the undesired and unintended death of the preborn child are permissible, so an abortion exception to save the life of the mother is actually unnecessary. Pro-lifers must vigorously oppose the "mother's life" abortion exception because of the inherent dishonesty of abortionists who expand it to mean abortion on demand. Additionally, if surgical procedures intended to save the life of the mother are labeled "abortions" in those many countries that still have pro-life laws, people will get used to the idea of killing preborn children much more easily, paving the way for a rapid expansion of exceptions and eventual abortion on demand.

New! Catholic Thought and the Challenges of Our Time

Ryan T. Anderson
The early Church saw challenges to truths about God, the Reformation-era Church saw challenges to truths about the Church herself, and today's Church is confronted by challenges to truths about man - the being made in the image and likeness of God whom the Church is tasked with protecting. This essay is based on Ryan T. Anderson's inaugural lecture as the St. John Paul II Teaching Fellow at The University of Dallas.

New! We Were Parents

Nathanael Blake
When my wife and I mourned the miscarriage of our child, we were not mourning the loss of "potential life." Hope for a potential life is what we had when we dreamed and prayed for pregnancy; hope for the potential of an existing life is what we had during the pregnancy. When our pregnancy ended, we mourned the loss of a life, of an irreplaceable human person whose particular genetic composition will never be repeated.

New! Need to REFUTE and REMOVE Fake Islamic 'Human Embryology' Teachings

Dianne N. Irving
Given these deadly and other unknown consequences resulting from and justified by the monumentally fake Islamic "human embryology" that has been and continues to be published, such fake "science" teachings should at least be removed from the NIH and other governmental and university educational websites or at least simultaneously refuted (as below)

New! Parental Rights and the Duties of Conscience

R. J. Snell
Children are no small matter. We don't simply have offspring or produce another member of the species, for children are persons endowed with intrinsic and unalienable dignity. To have a child is to become responsible for a being of incalculable value and worth.

The UN Continues to Push a Radical Abortion Agenda

Steven Mosher
The UN report, which talks incessantly about protecting women's rights, hypocritically whitewashes China's brutal one-child policy. That hundreds of millions of women over the past 34 years have been aborted and sterilized, many under duress, goes unmentioned.

Couples on the Pill and Holy Communion

Anthony Zimmerman
Since the Pill began to be sold in 1960, divorces have tripled, out-of-wedlock births jumped from 224,000 to 1.2 million, abortions doubled, and cohabitation soared 10-fold from 430,000 to 4.2 million.

India: Farmers in border areas must be allowed access to their lands

Asia Human Rights
The border regions of India are manned by members of the Border Security Force (BSF) personnel, who are always heavily armed, and wield significant power over the residents of these border villages.

Expanding Through Love
5th Sunday of Easter, Cycle A

Douglas P. McManaman
The more we expand, the greater will be our capacity to receive God into ourselves, just as the bigger the cup, the more water it can hold. A life lived only for itself, a person who has not loved anyone, only himself, renders himself incapable of receiving the life of God within himself, just as a cup that is sealed with a lid cannot receive any water into itself.

Can the President Have a Marriage Agenda Without Talking About What Marriage Is?

Ryan T. Anderson
How successful can a "new conversation on marriage" be when its leaders can't even say what marriage is?

Sacerdotal Flagism: Should the Flag Be Permanently Displayed in Church Sanctuaries Or Other Explicitly Christian Environments?
"My house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples." (Mk 11:17)

Emmanuel McCarthy
The question is not "What must be done?". The question is "How to do it," without dividing a Church that has been subject to mis-evangelization for decades. Bishops throughout this country must know the issue. In their hearts they must be aware that it is not a trivial concern before God. They certainly must be conscious of what their own rules and regulations dictate on the matter. But they also know that, as clear as the truth is, they often are forced to walk through a political-economic gauntlet in order to resolve the conflict. So the whole mess is "put on the back burner" with unacceptable consistency.

Planned Parenthood and Tuskegee - No Difference

Judie Brown
In 1932 an experiment by our government involved a group of 600 impoverished black men, most of whom had the sexually transmitted disease syphilis, all of whom became human guinea pigs used at taxpayer expense for reasons that are both atrocious and inhumane.

On the Threshold of Cloning Humans?
