8 New Mexico Democrats Join Republicans To Block Late-Term Abortion Bill
New Mexico’s bill was supposed to be a slam dunk. But after New York, nothing on abortion is a sure thing—not anymore. In a country that saw a 17-point jump in the number of pro-lifers since January, it’s no wonder that state Democrats are taking a good hard look at their positions, especially on late-term abortion.

Ethical Perspectives

Debating Child Slaughter

Judie Brown
Cuomo is a dissident. He is the man who signed one of the most outrageous abortion-protective laws in the history of this nation and yet he has the gall to suggest that he is a "Roman Catholic."

New! Finally, Growing Scientific Consensus Human DNA Research Is Mostly Erroneous, Need Vigorous Debate!

Dianne N. Irving
Long past time that this human DNA research hoax be exposed, as the scientists in the article below assert. Let the genuine debates begin! Put simply, there is no such thing as "precision medicine" any more than there is such a thing as accurate scientific knowledge about "The" Human Genome on which such medicine is supposedly based. The scientific field of genetics has been grossly damaged per se, clinical trial human volunteers are precluded from giving ethically and legally valid "informed consent", thousands of drugs and devices based on this false science are fraudulently sold to millions of consumers, and when inserted into human patients these fraudulent injections cause severe immune rejection responses, even death. Need more reasons?

New! Are We Running Out of People?

Steven Mosher
While on the fantasy island of overpopulation human numbers are always exploding, a close look at the real world reveals an increasingly barren reality. Many nations, especially in Europe, are already in a death spiral, filling more coffins than cradles each year. Listen closely, and you will hear the muffled sound of populations crashing.

Gay sperm donor dad or lesbian partner, who is the legal parent?

Once false science is incorporated into a law or regulation it ceases to be science anymore and becomes instead "stare decisis" -- or, legal precedent. [DNI]

Beginning Anew
Eighth Sunday of Ordinary Time - B

Frank Enderle
The newness of Christ in our lives can never be reduced to a patch up, a partial change, in our way of acting. We must completely break with the old life that we have lived and begin anew.

Book: Priestly Celibacy
Christ's Gift to the World

Anthony Zimmerman
On the occasion of his golden jubilee in the priesthood the author jubilates over the gift of the priesthood for himself and for all. He provides data that celibacy began with the twelve apostles living in the company of Jesus, and that it has been an unbroken tradition for the priesthood since, not as some wrongly assert, in the 4th or even the 10th century.

What is Natural Law?

Janet E. Smith
It cannot be stressed too strongly that natural law ethics do not proceed by positing the essence of man and then deducing or deriving moral norms from that essence. Nor can it be stressed too strongly that natural law does not proceed by looking at the world of nature and saying - "since X is the case, Y is moral or immoral." That is, it does not derive moral norms simply from observing that such and such is the case in the world as we know it. Natural law is an ethics that requires much observation of the world around us and also penetrating insight into the nature of things.

The Face in the Window

Ron Panzer
We were all sent out that week. It was a routine case: work to relieve the patient's pain, support the family, and meet whatever needs arose as time went by. I hadn't been at the hospice long, but recognized that Jim was considered to be at the very end, active phase of dying. His systems were shutting down. He wasn't eating or drinking much at all, hands and feet were getting cold, vital signs were looking worse and worse.
