Time to End the Unjust Institution of Abortion
Patriotism is a form of gratitude to God for the blessing of living in the land of our birth, or in the land that is our adopted home. We recognize that God has placed us in a particular place and calls us to contribute to the well-being of our society. This necessarily involves our personal efforts to foster justice and social harmony, working with our neighbors for the common good. Life is not lived in isolation, either geographically or historically.

Is the fear of having children bringing the West to the brink of extinction?
We are living at a time when a large segment of the world -- particularly societies in Europe, North America and Asia -- no longer views having children as something desirable or worthwhile. Whereas before, remaining childless was something people often felt shame over, even if it was through no choice of their own, we are now living at a unique historic moment in which many people proudly broadcast the fact that they have no children as something to celebrate or be proud of.

Catholic Bishop: Saving Babies From Abortion is the "Civil Rights Issue of Our Time"
He reminds Catholics that, while Dobbs has opened more opportunities for defending life, some states have "enacted extreme abortion policies. Children have been left vulnerable to abortion until the moment of birth." Because of these threats to unborn life, Bishop Burbidge encourages Catholic citizens "to engage their elected officials on all issues endangering life."

Judge Rebukes Biden on Abortion: His Administration "Clearly Exceeded its Authority" By Illegally Pushing Abortion
Since there is nothing in the U.S. Constitution about abortion, the High Court ruled the supreme law of the land does not provide a right to abortion. In fact, the Constitution protects the fundamental right to life, which was enshrined in the Nation's birth certificate - the Declaration of Independence.

"Busyness" Finances "Time Poverty"

"How are you?" Are you one of those who reply, "I'm busy." If so, you are not alone. In a recent survey taken, 70% of people who were asked this question replied, "I'm busy." Ask yourself, do I suffer from "Time Poverty"? Do I really need to be as busy as I am? Is it possible that being busy-busy-busy is my way of avoiding the more important issues in my life? Another question, do I set aside time for God? In the Bible, Jesus tells Martha that what Mary is doing, is very important for life. In fact, Jesus states, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by (so) many things; there is need of only one thing..." The message is loud and obvious. Jesus is asking Martha, "How much do you really love me? Can you find room for me in your busy schedule? Continue reading at Fr. Jerry's Blog...

Ethical Perspectives

New! Giving until It Hurts: Helping Mothers Love

Mary Tillotson
The way to foster a loving bond between mother and child is to nurture a wider culture of support and love. It is not fair to children to deprive them of their mother's womb for their life before birth. But it is also not fair to mothers to deprive them of the support they need to make pregnancy and motherhood bearable.

New! Sex Education and Pornography

Shenan J. Boquet
For social progressives, the sexual revolution was one of the greatest achievements in the history of the human race. At long last (the sexual revolutionaries proclaim), sexuality could be enjoyed outside of the framework of the old-fashion religious beliefs that had done nothing but induced crippling guilt and robbed generations of the pleasures of sexuality.

New! The relentless persecution of Christians in Latin America

Antonio Graceffo
When considering the persecution of Christians, we often think of the Middle East, Africa, or communist regimes in Asia. However, there is a growing trend of persecution in Latin America, where Christians make up at least 90 percent of the population. Attacks on priests, the Catholic Church, and Christianity are increasing across left-leaning Latin American nations.

New! On the Cooling of Our Love

Harrison Garlick
Acedia is a path to mediocrity; it leaves glories unrealized. A man may accomplish much, but if his soul is cooled to the higher beauties of life, he lives an unfulfilled one. The soul must hear the call to ascend the ladder of love and rest in the beauty for which it was made: God. Only in him does the soul find fulfillment and the beauty of an ordered life.

New! Pivoting to Unwanted and Coerced Abortion: A Manifesto

Monica Snyder
While we continue to seek ways to extend robust legal protection to prenatal children and to persuade our pro-choice brothers and sisters that such laws are necessary to forge a truly just society, we should all be able to come together to stop unwanted abortion.

Pro-Abortion Side Considers Children Less Than Animals

Steven Mosher
Cruelty to animals can land you in jail, cruelty to unborn children can't. A bill in Congress would take a step toward granting unborn children killed in abortion some of the same consideration given animals sent to slaughter.

Humanae Vitae Thirty-third Anniversary Commemoration
Homily by Bishop Joseph F. Naumann

Natural Family Planning
Each of us in accord with our state of life and particular responsibilities must strive to do whatever we can to communicate the good news about Christian love and marriage. In an age that is so attuned to what is natural and suspicious about the human manipulation of nature, we must communicate anew the folly of employing chemical warfare on a woman's fertility and the tragedy of surgical interventions to render men or women infertile.

Sri Lanka: Ringing church bells and lighting lamps

Asia Human Rights
Church bells will ring and lights will be lit to remember the 2019 Easter Sunday tragedy. Meanwhile, people have also been putting up a fight against the deadly coronavirus.

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly: A Down Syndrome Tale

Judie Brown
The news I bring to your attention today is not, to my mind, just another of those heart-wrenching accounts of the ways in which Down syndrome children are annihilated before birth. For some reason, it struck a chord in my heart that cried out for release.

The Morning After Pill (AKA Plan B) Available to Children

Steven Mosher
"Talk about your black-robed tyrants," said Steven Mosher, president of PRI, "This federal judge apparently thinks that he knows better than (1) parents, (2) the Food and Drug Administration, and (3) society at large whether it is good for 13-year-old girls to be able to buy abortifacient drugs like the Morning After Pill."

Chinese youth "a little selfish" now?

Shannon Roberts
China's statistics bureau announced a significant dip in the country's birth rate on Monday.

Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide: False Mercy

Shenan J. Boquet
In a disturbing development, Switzerland has approved a euthanasia device designed to make killing people easier than ever, including in locations where the practice is illegal. The colorful device, with a sleek design that looks like something straight out of a futuristic dystopian movie, was created by euthanasia-enthusiast Dr. Philip Nitschke.

Spain edges closer to legalizing euthanasia

Michael Cook
Spain's coalition government is attempting to legalise euthanasia and assisted suicide. Its right-to-die bill includes an "express euthanasia" service, with doctors visiting chronically ill patients at home, as well as in hospitals and clinics.

Heather Zeiger
