The English Catholic author G. K. Chesterton was one of the great pro-life advocates of the twentieth century in more ways than one. Although he might appear something of an antique figure in 2020, his values and pro-life message, which he lived every day, have much to say to us now.

Forced Abortion In America
Most abortions are unwanted are coerced and many are forced, sometimes violently. Escalating pressure to abort can come from employers, husbands, parents, doctors, partners, profit-driven abortion businesses, landlords, friends and family, or even trusted financial, personal, school or religious guides, gatekeepers or authorities.

They may threaten or blackmail.

New Cyber Trend in Human Trafficking

Our children deserve to have a decent fighting chance to succeed in their lives; it starts with keeping them safe from the sick predators of flesh and looters of our children’s innocence. Recently, a new wave of human trafficking "cybersex" has come to light. Yes, it’s a growing billion-dollar child-porn-industry which relies on the internet to prey on vulnerable children, beginning at an early age and extending into early teen years. New Cyber Trend in Human Trafficking is creating worldwide alarm. What is it? Cyber-sex is the use of children in live performances over the internet for paying customers. It is the perfect 21st century crime without borders, making it difficult to stop. Continue reading at Fr. Jerry's Blog...

Ethical Perspectives

New! What Does the COVID-19 Pandemic Have to Do With Abortion?

Steven Mosher
While developing countries are in dire need of everything from PPE, ventilators, and public health assistance (not to mention food and emergency loans), how has the government of Sweden chosen to respond to this crisis? It has committed $2 million to provide condoms and abortion equipment in sub-Saharan Africa.

New! Born for each other: How family planning and porn keep company

Carolyn Moynihan
Sex boils down to business for the so-called family planning establishment. A business requiring certain products to make it "safe" if not enjoyable for all concerned. And porn is one of those products, nearly as important as the condom itself, and often more effective since it removes the need for any human contact.

New! "Going to Die Anyway": COVID-19 Deaths of the Elderly are No Laughing Matter

R. J. Snell
More disturbing, however, is a palpable nonchalance demonstrated by some, thankfully few, who seem to think that deaths of the elderly somehow matter less than the deaths of younger people. "They were going to die soon anyway, what does it matter?" some seem to suggest. Others don't just hint at this attitude but state it clearly and directly: "They were on their last legs anyway."

New! Are There Remains of Aborted Babies Used in Vaccines?

Brian Clowes
There is some confusion today among pro‑life people (especially parents) regarding the morality of using vaccines that may have been produced using the tissue of aborted preborn babies. Of particular concern are vaccines that were developed in part using fetal tissue derived from aborted babies who died decades ago, and whose tissue is regenerated in laboratories under the names MRC-5 and WI-38.

New! A silver lining: marriage in a post-COVID world

Carolyn Moynihan
How will the coronavirus pandemic affect marriages? This has been a matter for speculation in the media since lockdowns began.

Some Quebec doctors resisting drive for euthanasia

Xavier Symons
There is a growing push for greater rights for Down syndrome people - in particular that they be fully protected from forced sterilisation. A landmark ruling by a UK court may have brought this goal one step closer.

Sri Lanka: From instability to greater disability

Asia Human Rights
Perhaps one thing that was forgotten when Lord Dunmore gave Adult Franchise for all, and also when Sri Lanka became an independent nation, is the stability of the social structure of a country. This is what provides for the establishment of the government, which will ensure security and stability to all.

Saints Adam and Eve?

Anthony Zimmerman
Before Vatican II, so I thought until recently, Adam and Eve were celebrated as saints in the Church. St. Michael's Calendar listed their names on December 24th, when Eves and Adams also celebrated name days. Naively, I asked Rome to "restore" the feast.

Elderly in Europe facing a "crisis" in end-of-life care

Michael Cook
"Improvements in treatment of dementia over the last decade have improved prognosis. But that means there needs to be an increase in care and support, both for those living at home, and for those in the last years of life, in formalised care settings."

Family Values Versus Safe Sex

Alfonso L Trujillo
Marriage has to be presented as something precious, something that will help bring happiness and fulfillment to a person, as couples undertake a life-long project of mutual, exclusive, total, irrevocable and sincere self-giving. The fact that families and youth are oftentimes misinformed and given false security should not be tolerated any longer. There is no such thing then as a 100% protection from HIV/AIDS or other STD's through condom use today. This data should not remain unnoticed, since many users, including youth, think that the condom provides total protection.

Ascending the Mountain of the Lord
4th Sunday of Advent (Year A)

Jeremiah R. Grosse
Psalm 24 tells us that those who have clean hands, pure hearts, do not swear a false oath, and are not deceitful will be able to ascend the mountain of the Lord. For some this mountain may be understood to be Mount Sinai, where Moses received the Ten Commandments. For others, this mountain may be Mount Mariah, where Abraham was told that he did not have to prove his devotion to God by sacrificing his son, Isaac.

The Prophet
14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Antonio P. Pueyo
St. Paul himself experienced personal difficulties in preaching God’s word. Inhis letters he mentioned being beaten, imprisoned, shipwrecked, and robbed in the course of his journeys. Beside these externally-imposed hardships, he had to deal with a personal weakness which he described as a “thorn in the flesh”.

Burma/Myanmar: Prosecutor concludes that case against soldiers for Ko Par Gyi killing "erroneous"

Asia Human Rights
Processes left no doubt that the military had abducted, illegally detained and killed Ko Par Gyi, and had then attempted to cover up the killing. Furthermore, when the facts of the case came out, the army attempted to distort the narrative by concocting allegations that the killed man was an insurgent; allegations that were shown to have been baseless.

Bought With a Price
Pornography and the Attack on the Living Temple of God

Official Documents
We stand at a threshold - either we can continue to allow this plague to spread with fewer and fewer checks, or we can take concrete steps to uproot it in our lives, our families, our neighborhoods and our culture. A free people can combat the tremendous moral, social and spiritual danger of pornography with great courage. My fervent prayer is that Catholics, other Christians, and all people of good will understand this threat, confront it, facilitate true healing, and ever more fully live out our God - given use of human sight.
