New! Surrogate Parenting is Wrong

Women selling their bodies as vessels has become an increasingly common commodity in today's society. But the moral implications are far - reaching, and the emotional tolls are becoming visible. When science trumps God's plan, and aims to override His will, calamity is sure to result.

New! The Obama Mandate and Political Power

Lent is about halfway through, and we draw nearer to the day when Our Lord gave His life to save us from our sins. Yet our society daily tempts us to draw closer and embrace those sins. In fact, it is doing almost everything in its power to discard morality and God.

New! Catholics Must Be Courageous

It can be difficult to stand up for our faith, for what is right and good, for what we know to be the will of God. We need good leaders - clergy who will set that example and show us the way, but we cannot rely only on them. We must also set the example. We must have the courage to take the lead so that others may do the same. And it is only in God that we will find this strength.

New! Transhumanists say no to death

As a society, we are pushing God further and further away from us. We put our faith in science when we should be putting it in God. We are even allowing science to take the place of God. If we continue on this path, we must be aware that, when we intentionally force God out of our lives here on Earth, we may be condemning ourselves to eternal life without Him as well.

New! When a Human Being Is Not

For those of us who realize the truth - that life begins the moment a child is created - arguments suggesting otherwise are inane. When we hear the assertion that a human being is not alive until he is born - despite his beating heart, moving limbs, functioning organs, and so on - we wonder how anyone could believe this lie. The fundamental right to life is denied every second of every day in America because of this lie and we must not allow this insanity to continue.

Deconstructing God's Plan

Love the sinner, hate the sin. That is something we are taught from the time we are children. But, in today's society, we are now taught to tolerate the sin, embrace the sin, or even advocate for the sin. If we dare to mention that a type of behavior is sinful, we are castigated and branded intolerant. As we regularly see, Catholic clergy often do not give voice to God's word and God's will. Consequently, we now live in a society where it is the peoples' will that rules. Why have we silenced God?

It's Judgmental, Hateful, and Intolerant!

It seems that, lately, those who agree that abortion is a woman's choice are the only ones who are allowed to speak out. If you are pro-life and state this, or hold a sign to make others aware, then you are labeled intolerant, hateful, or hurtful. But we cannot stop using our voices, for the people we speak for do not have voices yet. They are the ones being slaughtered. And we are the ones who must protect them.

Contraception is the Root Cause of Abortion!

Imagine that your doctor has just given you the terrific news that your annual checkup went well and that all of your tests show that you are in perfect health. Then imagine that he hands you a script and says, "Take this every day. It has many side effects, including lethal ones." You would be loath to begin this regimen. Yet, this is what countless women do each day when they use contraception to "prevent" a pregnancy.

Perverse Fruits of IVF

The medical community touts in vitro fertilization as something great, something amazing. But it omits the fact that this procedure is not victimless. Neither is it moral or ethical. Today's commentary explores the words of Pope John Paul II and the Church and explains what every Catholic should know.

Socially Polite Child Abuse

Most people will decry the abuse of a child and say that it's one of the worst things a person could do to another. So why aren't these same people crying for the protection of preborn babies - babies who suffer the worst child abuse of all? Thousands of babies are killed every day in America, yet very few condemn this or try to stop it. And the sad fact is that this terrible trend may only get worse unless we can change minds and hearts.

Forty-One Years Later the Cruelty Rages

Forty-one years have passed since the Supreme Court took away the rights of an innocent class of people and allowed them to be killed at will. Forty-one years of suffering have ensued. In addition to the millions of babies murdered, countless families - mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, and other family members - must live daily with the tragic loss of a child killed before he was born. But it is not too late to change minds and hearts - to open them to a love for each and every human being. It is never too late to teach human beings how to love one another

Skewed Numbers Equal More Dead Babies

Interpretation of data is of utmost importance when looking at the latest Guttmacher report. To understand the enormity of how many babies are aborted each year, read today's commentary. We must work to protect all human beings - born and preborn. This tragedy - these killings - must be stopped.

Baby Pandas, Human Babies, and the Press

A sweet newborn baby being loved and doted upon, every movement and sound watched and carefully noted. Sounds like a typical newborn human baby, but in this case, we are talking about a baby animal. Recently we were given a sad example of just how much more our society values animals than preborn babies. This discrepancy should sicken your stomach, should make you think, and should lead you to action.

Talking about Abortion

Talking about Abortion

Every life - born and preborn - has value and must be treated with dignity and respect. Abortion is the direct taking of a precious life - and an act that often destroys other lives as well. But abortion is not something to be silent about. We must talk, we must teach, we must listen. And most of all, we must forgive.

Sorry, Baby, You Don't Exist!

Spilled coffee, ice having to be scraped off of a windshield, and a fender bender on the way to work - all are scenarios that cause inconvenience or that we wish hadn't happened. But, just because we didn't intend for them to happen, does that mean they don't exist? Of course not. So why, when a baby is created - intentionally or unintentionally - do people think of him as nothing more than an inconvenience? How can a baby's life be likened to something like one of the scenarios above? And how can people have the audacity to think that no life exists when one clearly does?

Formed in the Womb? It Makes No Sense

The weight of words is significant and what we choose to say or convey to others often determines what they believe. So we must choose our words well, and with sufficient knowledge, so that there is a true understanding of the truth - especially when it comes to matters related to Christ and His teachings.
