As president and founder of American Life League , Judie Brown focuses on the urgent need for America to restore respect for innocent human beings--in society, in the law and in daily life. American Life League began in 1979. It is the nation's largest grass-roots pro-life educational organization, with more than 300,000 American families supporting its work in prayer and with donations.
San Martin appears to suggest that even sexually explicit pictures used in the program at various points are not really offensive if one takes the program as a whole and understands that "the units have a common thread, a metaphor of the human person as a 'tent.'" But our analysis of the program sheds a different light - tent or no tent.

We know that the antidote to abortion is to be truth-tellers with love in our hearts and education on our minds. We have the tools to teach truth. All we have to do is use them in a way that assures that aborting children is no longer America's great sin.

Sanger shaped the eugenics movement in America and beyond in the 1930s and 1940s. Her views and those of her peers in the movement contributed to compulsory sterilization laws in 30 U.S. states that resulted in more than 60,000 sterilizations of vulnerable people, including people she considered "feeble-minded," "idiots," and "morons." She even presented at a Ku Klux Klan rally. The facts about the location of specific Planned Parenthood offices/clinics tell a disturbing story.

Senator Tim Kaine has been nominated for the position of vice president of the United States. As a nonprofit educational organization, ALL does not comment for or against any political candidate. But, as a Catholic organization, we do comment on any candidate who claims to be a faithful Catholic and publicly acts contrary to the teachings of the Church. This commentary is intended to call on Senator Kaine to obey Canon 916 and on all bishops and priests to obey Canon 915.

Perhaps amidst all the kerfuffle created by Monday's Supreme Court decision on abortion regulations in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, many failed to notice the draconian decision the Court handed down the following day.

The Catholic Church has some clear teachings on transgender issues. Catholics are called to treat everyone with compassion. Yet the church maintains that people may not change what Pope Benedict XVI called "their very essence."

The pregnancies that are not being acknowledged as existing are still pregnancies. The babies whose silent deaths are never tabulated are still babies who die because of long-acting reversible contraception. Lying about it does not change the truth of it.

Once again the practice of using aborted preborn babies for their body parts and tissues has made the news. This time the reporting is based on a sickening congressional letter addressed to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and signed by 98 members of Congress.

Stage three cancer that has spread to surrounding tissue. It is an extremely serious situation for the patient. In the case of America's ability to fight off the evils of today, it would be safe to say that we are at that tipping point in our cultural cancer. We are killing what little is left of the goodness, moral backbone, and abhorrence of evil that once made this nation great.

We have been blind. As we work diligently to educate the public about the horrors of abortion and the threats to human dignity, the culture of death has crept into our schools, working to destroy the innocence of our children.

All of this should be shocking to the average American, and difficult to understand. How could we as a nation have grown so bloodthirsty, so callous in our regard for human beings, so blasé about something as violent as abortion? The answer is that it has taken years to get to this point.

America is fast becoming a nation where religious freedom rights are challenged and at times denied. Such is the case involving parents of children who do not want to have their children vaccinated. These parents not only have grave concerns about the welfare of their children, but sound arguments for protecting them from vaccination.
