Reality, not religion, is the reason people need euthanasia-free health care

What Happens When Children Are Exposed to Pornography?
The thing about addiction is that oftentimes, the younger a person is when they are first exposed, the higher their risk for developing a serious addiction that can dominate minds and bodies, numbing them to the environment around them.

Here's Three Reasons Why I'm Pro-Life on Abortion
If someone asks what you think about abortion, or why you're pro-life, what do you say? How do you get supporters of abortion to rethink the issue--or even change their minds? We can put forward our case clearly, concisely, and in a way that appeals to those who aren't already pro-life. Here are three key points to make when articulating your view.

We Need a Federal Law Protecting Babies From Abortions Because Many Blue States Have Abortions Up to Birth
A recent study is declaring U.S. abortion law to be "far more permissive than the vast majority of the world."

A Partnership in Eldercare
We must work together to transform our culture. By changing policy, coordinating care with a spouse, or helping a neighbor in need, we can all help each other remember that showing love and gratitude to seniors is all of our responsibility.

The grim truth about egg-freezing
The advertising pitch for freezing your eggs is seductive: you can (and will) have everything. You don't have to choose between having a career and having a family. You don't have to settle for a man. One company promised that freezing eggs could "freeze time" itself.

"What the Pro-Palestinian Campus Protests Are Really about"
The recent pro-Palestinian student protests on elite university campuses across the country offer fascinating, if somewhat depressing, insights into the state of modern American culture. It is not so much that the lunatics have taken over the asylum as the kindergartners have taken over the nursery.

War Against Children: Freezing Live Embryos - "human or not?" (Part 10)

It is so easy in life to lose sight of what's most important. Our days are so busy that we often overlook problems facing our children both born and unborn. Take for example freezing unborn embryos. This is another obsession in waging war on Children. This procedure takes a living human person and actually freezes it. This freezing, also known commonly as solidification, is a phase transition where an unborn child turns into a solid when its temperature is lowered below its freezing point. We must ask ourselves "When does human life begin?" Are embryos human people? Are pre-born children human embryos at the beginning of pregnancy? The answer is very simple. Is the pregnant woman human? Yes. Is her partner human? Yes. It follows that the embryo in the woman's body must be of the same species - HUMAN. Then it is safe to say that frozen human embryos are the most weak and vulnerable of human beings. Continue reading at Fr. Jerry's Blog...

New! Abortion Linked to More Mental Health Disorders in Danish National Study

David C. Reardon
There is a 50% increased risk of a first time psychiatric treatment in the year following a first abortion, according to a newly published reanalysis of Danish medical records. The elevated risk was highest (87% increased risk) for personality and behavioral disorders.

New! 'Boy Scouts of America' is rebranding. Now it's gender-neutral

Kurt Mahlburg
Boy Scouts of America's gender-neutral rebrand is just the latest move in a decade of woke policy posturing by the organisation. Here's a thought. Maybe the last decade's worth of hyper-inclusion explains why Boy Scouts of America's membership is at historic lows. Though never a scout, I was a boy once. I remember the difference between playing in mixed company and adventuring just with other boys. Both have their place, but they are qualitatively different. As an all-male organisation, BSA had an edge on most competition - an edge they have since abandoned in their giddy pursuit of woke brownie points.

New! Is Sexual Violence Porn-Driven?

Shenan J. Boquet
This is the lie behind the idea that pornography is "merely" entertainment. Even movies made purely for entertainment are not "merely" entertainment. Everything we put into our minds shapes our minds. High-definition streaming porn, one of the most powerful forms of media ever devised, is clearly distorting an entire generation's views of sexuality, from the earliest ages.

New! Student Protests and the Old Gods

R. J. Snell
The protests are not simply about Gaza, but concern incompatible ways of life and value. They are another moment in the long rejection of Western metaphysics, anthropology, ethics, and epistemology by Westerners coming of age in a culture that teaches them to despise their own civilization.

New! Birth Control Risks Exposed

Shenan J. Boquet
An estimated 966 million women of reproductive age globally use some form of birth control. These methods of contraception include hormonal and non-hormonal birth control, both of which have devastating effects on both the health and the well-being of the family.

Beware of IVF incest, ethicists warn clinics

Xavier Symons
IVF clinics must prepare for "intrafamilial reproductive arrangements", according to a new document published by the ethics committee of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).

On Abortion Rates: Good News and Cause for Reflection

Richard M. Doerflinger
American abortion rates are falling significantly. Although the Guttmacher Institute tries to hide the chief causes of this trend, cutting through the spin reveals that pro-life laws and attitudes help reduce the abortion rate and the abortion ratio.

Human Development and Reconsideration of Ensoulment

C. Ward Kischer
Human embryology is now in danger of being rewritten as a stratagem statement of current socio-legal, but also of late, even theological, issues. Unless the errors are corrected now, we will be in danger of entering a protracted period of false concepts concerning our own development.

Natural Family Planning The Choice for a Healthy Marriage

Natural Family Planning
When Natural Family Planning is used to avoid a pregnancy or to space the number of children when there are justifying reasons to do so, it is free of the detrimental moral and physical elements which are so intrinsic to artificial methods. Natural Family Planning is a method of spacing births that fully respects the beauty of human sexuality according to the design of God. But NFP is more than a technique of family planning it is actually a way of life.

Human Rights Versus the Right to Murder

Judie Brown
The quest for personhood for all people, born and preborn, is an effort seeking justice for all, equal rights for all, human rights for all. For these reasons, it will prevail. If it does not, the liberties of this nation will never for sure. Of that, there is no doubt.

Legalized Sacrifice - a 23-month-old boy

*Offsite Article
The Culture of Death takes one giant step forward in Britain. A British judge, passing a verdict from his lofty position, looked down on Alfie Evans, a 23-month-old boy who was in a ?semi-vegetative state"? and stated in so many words that human care and treatment for him were "unkind and inhumane". He overrode the wishes of Alfie's parents "to protect their child" and condemned him "to die" by authorizing the hospital to remove his life supports. He decided on his own that the love of Alfie's parents and the medical treatment were not in Alfie's "best interests". For one moment, the judge played God, a false human God who lacked compassion, love and the will to protect the rights of another human being. The sole purpose of judges was established to secure human life, human rights, not to judge its worth. Judges serve mankind, not vice versa. This fact is not debatable.

New Study Reveals The Startling Rise of Gen Z'ers Identifying as LGBTQ

John Stonestreet
Even granting that polling data should always be carefully studied and, often taken with a grain of salt, that's a shockingly high number. And, in addition to challenging Christians about how much the culture around them has changed, these numbers also challenge the way people have been taught to think about sexuality and, specifically, cultural assumptions about sexuality.

Diagnosis of Gender Dysphoria - Too General and Too Much Harm

Walt Heyer
The diagnosis of gender dysphoria prematurely puts people on a path to transition while trivializing and dismissing contributing factors such as alcohol and drug abuse, sexual fetishes and co-existing psychological disorders. The trans "treatment" being idolized today should meet the same fate as lobotomies, tooth pulling and colon removal - tossed on the historical rubbish heap of debunked horrific experiments perpetrated on innocent, hurting people.

Plan for whole genome screening of babies in the UK is ethically complex

Margaret Somerville
Newborn babies in Western democracies are routinely tested for certain diseases or conditions at birth. These tests allow treatment of some conditions, which left untreated would cause serious irreversible harm to the baby.
