Brian Clowes
The debate over homosexual "marriage" is radically different from the discussions surrounding abortion, pornography and euthanasia.

The Culture of Death Has No Winners

Judie Brown
Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves 'the creative action of God', and it remains forever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can, in any circumstance, claim for himself the right to destroy directly an innocent human being.
