At Least 69 Athletes Collapse In One Month, Many Dead
The reports of athletes who suddenly collapse have been increasing noticeably lately. Heart problems such as heart inflammation are often the cause – one of the known life-threatening side effects of Covid vaccines, which even the manufacturers themselves warn against.

A Touch Of Experience: Where Are You?
And indeed this question, “Where are you?” could be said to have reverberated from the dialogue between the snake and the woman; for, in the course of the whole dialogue, the man is completely silent and so God says to him, specifically, “Because you listened to the voice of your wife . . .” (Gn 2: 17). In other words, because there was no dialogue about what God had actually said to them and, in effect, the man left the woman to hold the conversation with the snake on her own, the man listened “to the voice” of his wife but not to the situation she was in and the need for his help to establish the truth of what was going on.

Large Turnout Of MPs Hear Evidence From Experts On Fetal Pain At Parliamentary Meeting
A large number of MPs have attended a Parliamentary webinar on fetal pain hosted by the All Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group (APPPG) and chaired by Fiona Bruce MP. It aimed to raise awareness of the need to review the science behind fetal pain and address the current contradiction in UK law concerning the treatment of the unborn.

Panel Of Women Scholars Discusses Danger Of Redefining Women
Efforts to redefine women undermine their feminine dignity and unjustly pressure them to resort to abortions to keep pace with men in the workforce, a panel of women scholars said earlier this month in a discussion that highlighted the harmful consequences of de-sexing society.

30,000 Doctors Tell Supreme Court: Unborn Babies Are Human Beings, They Deserve Human Rights
The message from the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, which represents more than 30,000 doctors and other medical professionals, is simple: Unborn babies are patients, too, and they deserve the same rights and protections as every other human being.

Governments Are Asking Us To Become Informers. Isn’t This Dangerous?
If we want to limit the government, we must commit to resistance and refuse to help the government carry out its injustices.

Why Are We Bullying, Shaming And Demonising Vaccine-hesitant Australians?
Joe Biden’s path to presidential irrelevance is paved with bad intentions, like his decree mandating Covid-19 vaccines in every workplace with 100 or more employees.

Let’s Protect Our Daughters!
I am a French mother whose teenage daughter recently announced to me that she was gender dysphoric and wanted hormones. Being left-wing politically oriented, a feminist, and sensitive to the rights of minorities, I first thought my daughter had to be supported in the difficult path to transition.

Pro-Life Men’s Rally Calls On Men To Step Up And Be Responsible Fathers For Their Children
Hundreds of men gathered Monday in Baltimore to encourage fathers to defend the lives of their unborn babies. “It takes two to make a baby,” he said. “Men bear as much responsibility as women. It’s not the woman’s problem. It’s our problem.”

Men's March Participants Call On Bishops To Take Firm Stand Against Abortion, Pro-abortion Politicians

War Against Children: Forced Begging - "stolen lives” (Part 7)

What would you do? Let's say you are walking along the streets of a major city and you see a mother and child sitting on the sidewalk. The child looks very ill and is holding out a tin cup, desperately asking for help. How should I respond? Child begging is not only one of the worst forms of child labour, but one of the worst violations of a child's right and absolutely against the dignity of a child. The use of children for begging - whether the child appears to be accompanied by a 'parent' or not - is a denial of their fundamental rights, such as the right to protection, integrity and dignity. Immediate risks comprise physical and emotional abuse, abduction, rape, and accidents. Longer risks include ... an increased likelihood of drug use to ease this hard lifestyle, along with the exposure of being coerced into other dangerous work or bad situations (prostitution, forced labour, unsafe migration), involvement in crime plus a growing disconnection from their family and community. As Christians, how should we respond? Do we have a responsibility to do something? Continue reading at Fr. Jerry's Blog...

Ethical Perspectives

New! What is Behind the Puppet Masters and Their Agenda?

Ron Panzer
These puppet masters are utilitarians. They are the secular humanists who believe they know best how the world should be managed and that the world should be managed by them. They have nothing but disdain for any ideas supporting the individual's rights, the sanctity of life, reverence for God, and human freedom. We are facing an entirely new face of an evil that is as old as time itself, and the source is the ultimate puppet master of evil.

New! Progressive Legal Scholars Have Long Known Roe's Reasoning Is Calamitous

Phillip Williamson
Roe is indefensible as a matter of honest constitutional interpretation. It short-circuited the political process and poisoned the Court. Its systematic flaws, widely acknowledged by a variety of progressive and pro-choice legal scholars, caused the judiciary to become the branch most, not "least[,] dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution."

New! It's Time to Oppose COVID Authoritarianism

Allen Porter
Safetyism and Wokeism are fellow travelers, joined at the hip in many more contexts than not. Both elevate people's subjective and emotional experiences, so long as they point in a progressive direction, over what is biologically or scientifically true. It is time for both conservatives and traditional liberals to wake up to this reality, which requires more consistently translating our convictions into action.

New! Can Catholics Object to COVID-19 Vaccines on Religious Freedom Grounds?

Gwyneth Spaeder
There are likely vanishingly few individuals who apply the rigorous ethical criteria they use against the COVID-19 vaccine to the rest of their medical and personal decisions. Such inconsistent application of religious freedom principles in the COVID-19 vaccine debate threatens to significantly weaken desperately needed protections for Catholic medical practices.

New! Many objective scientific reasons NOT to take COVID "vaxes" or "boosters"

Dianne N. Irving
One doesn't have to be a physician to find so much objective scientific documentation that should preclude anyone from taking any of these COVID "vaxes" and "boosters".

Surrogate Parenting is Wrong

Judie Brown
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.

Double Standards on Abortion and Animal Rights

Ligia De Jesus Castaldi
Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason and harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating pain in abortion.

Whose Conscience? What Protections? Conscience Provisions in Healthcare and Elsewhere

E. Christian Brugger
The Trump administration has launched several encouraging initiatives to strengthen conscience protection for healthcare workers. But the bills that would enshrine these protections into law are moving at a snail's pace through the House and Senate.

On birth control women do not speak with one voice

Carolyn Moynihan
It's a funny thing that what 40,000-odd women say about a policy supposedly for women is of no interest to three of the most powerful women in the United States.

OBL v. APB -- Murderer v. Murdered

Judie Brown
Such hypocrisy confronts pro-lifers every day and the hour for correcting this fatal flaw is late.

Bioethics is tough; why not abolish it?

Michael Cook
Bioethics is like ice cream: there are many different flavours on a common base. There is utilitarian bioethics, deontological bioethics, natural law bioethics, principalist bioethics, Islamic bioethics, and so on. What they have in common is that some things are moral and others are immoral.

IVF experts divided over mosaic embryos

Xavier Symons
Debate is intensifying among fertility specialists about the use of mosaic embryos in IVF

Life-Affirming Technology in Modern Art: Reviewing Major Works of the Abstract and Plastic Arts in Selected Museum Galleries and on Websites

Jeff J. Koloze
It is worth noting that art is always pro-life in the absolute sense of life-affirming. After all, anyone who creates a work of art wants to convey something about his or her life, whether that is a positive or a negative message, and the mere act of communication is an affirming event.

Who's a Who?

Dianne N. Irving
Since IVF couples like Carie and Tim are ALREADY parents, they ALREADY have the moral and legal obligations to protect their children from harm. This means they cannot allow any of their children to be eliminated because of some lab test, or abort them to make way for larger brothers and sisters, freeze or donate them for destructive experimentation for any reason, no matter how good it sounds. Evil may not be done that good may come of it.

CCHD: Evidence, Dismissals, and Clarifications

Judie Brown
Imaging buying an apple from an orchard, biting into it, and discovering that the apple is full of worms. You'd be upset, wouldn't you? In fact, you'd probably take the apple to the farmer, point out that the apple is full of worms, show him your receipt, and ask for a refund. Now imagine that instead of making amends, the farmer started telling you about how his staff is thoroughly committed to picking only the best apples and that his orchard has a rigorous policy in place to make sure that apples with worms are not sold from his orchard. I imagine that you'd be furious! The fact of the matter is that this is the general modus operandi of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) when it responds to charges that its grantees are involved in the promotion of the culture of death.
