CDC: Youth Suicide Skyrockets 70% Over Last Decade. Here’s Why.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, youth suicide is in the midst of a precipitous and frightening rise. Between 2006 and 2016, suicides by white children between ages 10 and 17 skyrocketed 70%; while black children are less likely than white children to kill themselves, their suicide rate also jumped 77%. And as The Blaze points out, CNN reported last year that “the suicide rate among girls between the ages of 15 and 19 rose to a 40-year high in 2015.”

More Reasons Why “Blessing” Gay Couples Is Scandalous
When the Church “blesses” someone, it usually does so for one of two reasons: to ask God to protect that person from evil, or to confirm that person in the good. Because our spiritual lives are dynamic—at no point are we “holy” enough to rest on our laurels—those two reasons are usually two sides of the same coin: protection against evil should lead us at the same time to progressive growth towards the good.

False Perceptions Cloud Fukushima

Relentless War on Unborn Babies

Dear Friends for Life: Throughout the world we are witnessing the Culture of Death penetrating all areas of human life, in particular it’s relentless war on unborn babies. Who is more threatened at the very beginning of life by outside forces than the newly-conceived human embryos? The IVF Industry (only 1 out of 23 survive, the rest discarded, frozen, or experimented on), the Pharmaceutical Industry (a line of contraceptive drugs and devices whose sole purpose is to prevent the embryo from implanting in the womb), the Abortion Industry (to kill the human life which does implant itself in the womb), are all active players in this war. Now the final haven of protection for the unborn child is being attacked – THE DEFINITION OF MARRIAGE. Continue reading at Fr. Jerry's Blog...

Ethical Perspectives

New! Getting Away with Egregious Guardianship Fraud

Ron Panzer
Professional Guardianship Abuse is accomplished under "Color of Law" and Remains Hidden from Public Knowledge! It is supremely important that the public understand what "color of law" actually involves! Acting under "color of law" occurs when an official abuses their power in violation of the law while pretending to be acting in accordance with the law.

New! Parental Rights: A Casualty of the Transgender Revolution

Andrew T. Walker
If the medical establishment deems "transitioning" in the best interest of a legal minor and the parents object on moral or religious grounds, legal precedent now exists that suggests that parental rights can be severed in the interest of countenancing transgender orthodoxy.

New! The Ostrich Defense of Abortion

Christopher Kaczor
These abortion advocates stick their heads in the sand and demonstrate their ignorance of even the most basic facts of the pro-life position.

Humanae Vitae, 50 years after: reviled, ridiculed ... and right

Jokin de Irala
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI's controversial statement condemning artificial birth control. A natural family planning educator reviews Paul VI's controversial statement on artificial contraception.

Dishonoring the Dead: Moral and Constitutional Considerations on Fetal Disposition

Deirdre Cooper
Texas's humane dispositions aren't about trying to sneakily ban abortion. They're about whether states will be coerced to affirm abortion as a positive good rather than merely tolerating it as a tragic necessity.

Aborting Facts For Political Purposes

Judie Brown
"We know that abortion is evil. We know that those who advocate it are literally working for the father of lies, and we will continue to say it. Abortion is an act that takes the life of a person and the antidote is human personhood. A focus on that child's humanity is the only educational tool that has lasting power to turn the tide. God does not expect us to engage in political bickering, nor does His Word give us permission to relegate His babies and their fate to nothing more than a mere political issue! God expects us to tell the truth. If not us, who? Personhood now!"

AIDS and Population Control: Increasing Women's Risk

Jennifer I. Kimball
Thirty years after the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported the first US case of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), the disease continues to stretch its shroud of death across the world. This, despite the billions of dollars that have been invested in the development of vaccines, spent on anti-retroviral therapies, and strewn about in condom distribution and sexual education schemes. But there is a strange and disturbing trend now evident in the new cases of HIV/AIDS being reported, and it concerns women of reproductive age.

Policy Considerations in the Public Funding of Abortion
Jacqueline R. Kasun, PhD

As women repeat abortion there is evidence of personal, social and health deterioration which increases the likelihood that public assistance will be needed. The degree of attachment to males is lessened as abortion is repeated which tends to decrease socio-economic stability. Thus, the repeated utilization of abortion appears to lead not to economic prosperity or social well-being, but to an increasing feminization of poverty.

Posterity's Plague

Judie Brown
Star Parker has been a favorite of mine for years; in fact, she spoke at one of American Life League's events in Florida ten years ago and wowed the audience with her insights. She has just had that effect on me again. Her commentary on the valiant Walter Hoye, an African American pastor who was sentenced to 30 days in jail for standing outside an inner city abortion mill holding a sign that said "Jesus Loves You and Your Baby, Let us Help You," hit the nail on the head.

The Primeval Revelation and Its Relevance Today

Anthony Zimmerman
My intention is to advocate that the Primeval Revelation in which God "manifested himself to our first parents from the very beginning" and "open(ed) up the way to heavenly salvation" is alive and well in the human race today. Because God invited our first ancestors "to intimate communion with himself and clothed them with resplendent grace and justice" we find in the Primeval Revelation common ground to share our escatological hopes with peoples of all religions.

The Media and Human Embryology

C. Ward Kischer
Clearly, there is a major problem. The public knows little about Human Embryology, although some ignorant writers think they know more than they actually show. If these writers would make even a little effort and seek basic information, much of the problem would be relieved. It is not going to be solved by seeking out political analysts, politicians and ethicists.

Abortionists Are Not Held Accountable for Mistakes
Lenora W. Berning, M.D.

The Post-Abortion Review
Abortion is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the United States -- yet it is the least regulated. It is the only elective surgical procedure that I know of in which the doctor performing the procedure is not responsible for follow-up care, nor does he or she take an active role in dealing with the complications. Not only this, but the very nature of abortion clinics, which practice in isolation from the rest of the medical community, keeps the abortion provider free from accountability for these complications.

Sedated to Death?
When "comfort care" becomes dangerous

Nancy Valko
The euthanasia movement is nothing if not creative and persistent. Many people now mistakenly believe that tolerating just a little bit of deliberate death -- with safeguards, of course -- will give them control at the end of their own lives. But as the "culture of death" keeps seducing even well-meaning patients, families and medical professionals into making death decisions based on fear of suffering or diminished quality of life rather than following the traditional principles of not causing or hastening death, ultimately we are all at risk of being "compassionately" rationalized to death.

Australian academics campaign against Chinese transplant chief

Xavier Symons
A fierce campaign is being carried out in Australia to strip Chinese doctor Huang Jiefu of his honorary professorship at Sydney University. Dr. Jiefu, who was Vice-minister for Health in China for 12 years, authorized the forced removal of organs from thousands of executed Chinese prisoners.
