Family–Supported Suicide And The Duty To Die
In 1991, my friend Frances invited me to a “going away party.” She wasn’t moving or going on vacation. Frances wanted her closest friends to come to her home, to tell her how much she meant to us, and to hold her hand as she committed suicide. We refused. Validating Frances’s suicide was unthinkable. We supported her life, not her death.

Our Doctor Asked Us 3 Times If We Wanted To Abort Our Daughter With Trisomy 18. This Is What We Told Him The Third Time.
For a third time, he (doctor) strongly stated that she was going to most likely die in my womb and there would be no reason to further the pregnancy. Once again, we declined, but this time we added, “This baby is our child. We just saw little arms, legs, fingers and toes on the ultrasound! Just because she has an extra chromosome and a few abnormalities, doesn’t mean she is not our sweet, precious baby. We are pro-life and you are not going to change our minds.”

New! Sex Education in America: How Yesterday's Extremists Shaped Today's Sex Ed

Valerie Huber
It reads like fiction: an estimated 50 to 75 percent of American men were infected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD); in thousands of families, an STD killed one, two, even five of their children; and an incredible 30 percent of all blindness was attributed to STDs. The transmission of STDs was an urgent concern of national health and security - so serious, in fact, that soldiers were court-martialed if they were found to be infected.

New! Health care in the Islamic State

Craig Klugman
Like much of the world, I find myself reading daily news stories about the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) - also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL). This is a militant group that has conquered much of the territory of Syria and Iraq. They have created an Islamic state, or caliphate, run by sharia law. According to news reports, Western youth are heading to Syria to join ISIS attracted by the ideas, the adventure, belonging to a group, or generally feeling disillusioned. It's not just young people, but also engineers and doctors.

Our "me" society seems to be losing the vision of a healthy, happy family, and instead focusing on hedonistic pleasures geared at destroying the family. If we continue in this fashion, the loudest sound we will hear will be the weeping of souls.

Abortion, Though Legal, is not Licit

Anthony Zimmerman
Merely designating an injustice as "legal" makes it no more respectable than "legal thievery," or "legal arson," or "legal counterfeiting" would be. Call it what it is - pseudo-legal, counterfeit legal, attempted legal, civilly tolerated, non-penalized - whatever; but don't attempt to name that "legal" what God has from eternity made illegal. We dis-educate and confuse people by using the term "legal abortion."
