The Fertility Industry Is Not Pro-life. It's A Profitable Eugenic Industry.
The fertility industry was born out of couples’ desire to have babies despite struggles with infertility. This billion-dollar industry profits from that pain and actually destroys more lives than are born through the common process known as IVF (in vitro fertilization). In addition, the fertility industry, though appearing to be “pro-life” on the surface, is disturbingly prone to eugenic, anti-life practices.

The Importance of the prophetic encyclical "Humanae Vitae" in 1968 and today 2021

Dear Friends for Life: "Humanae Vitae", the prophetic encyclical written by Pope Paul VI in 1968, warned Catholics about the culture of contraception and the deadly impact it would have on society. "Humanae Vitae"ťexplains why the Catholic Church rejects contraception. Pope Paul VI warned of dire consequences if contraception became widely practiced. He cautioned that there would be greater infidelity in marriage, confusion regarding the nature of human sexuality and its role in society, using women for sexual pleasure, compulsory government birth control policies, and the reduction of the human body to an instrument of human manipulation. In 2021, these warnings are a living reality. Continue reading at Fr. Jerry's Blog...

Steven Mosher
For suggesting that the China Virus came from a Wuhan lab, the censors of Silicon Valley tried to silence me.

New! Critical Race Theory: Plundering the Egyptians or Worshiping Ba'al?

Bruce Ashford
Critical Race Theory rightly calls us to recognize that the effects of sin can be magnified throughout the institutions and social structures erected by individuals, leading to social systems that embody unjust racial prejudices. However, by focusing on sin as embodied with or without intent in social systems, proponents of CRT lose sight of what makes sin so wrong in the first place: that individuals who bear a moral accountability before God break his moral law.

Adapting Curriculum: Making It Catholic

Douglas P. McManaman
The key to adapting curriculum to a Catholic education lies in the faith of the teacher. The fundamental purpose of a Catholic education is to teach the faith. What makes a Catholic school a genuine Catholic institution is that each teacher, from his or her own unique vantage point, sees and interprets the world through a mind illuminated by the theological virtue of faith.

New! The Pro-Life Case against the COVID Vaccines Is Not Primarily about Abortion

Philip Reed
Even if abortion had nothing whatsoever to do with the development of COVID-19 vaccines, many pro-lifers would be just as vaccine-hesitant. Often, convincing our neighbor to take a vaccine requires rebutting objections that have nothing to do with abortion.

New! Rendering Treatment, Refusing Transformation (and Destruction): Preserving Medical Conscience Rights

Who Are We?

*Offsite Article
We have entered a sad period of history. Never before has there ever been such a disrespect and indifference for human life, whether it be at its beginning or at its end. The recently abortion industry’s baby body part trafficking scandal has only brought to light what has existed in our societies for a number of years. “Those for Life” have talked about it with words, now people are forced to see it with their eyes. What the Nazis did in secret, our government does openly and even creates laws to protect and justify their criminal actions. As history has condemned the Nazi Holocaust, so will it condemn this generation for its cruel war on babies: killing them in the womb, cutting them up and selling their body parts (even after birth). Never in the history of mankind has this horrible evil occurred to the extent we see it in the USA and throughout the world.

Shape or be shaped: Christians in an era of marriage decline

Carolyn Moynihan
Christians throughout the West are dismayed at plummeting church attendance figures. They blame video games, or left-wing teachers, or Richard Dawkins. But perhaps the real answer is closer to home -- their own families. Divorce, single motherhood and cohabitation have been destabilising family life in America and other developed countries for decades. About one million children in the US each year experience the divorce of their parents, and more than half the children born to women under 30 are now born outside marriage. Reproductive technologies are also adding ambiguity -- and potential fault lines -- to family relationships.

Sex and the Supreme Court: Your 60-Second Guide to American Fertility

Steven Mosher
This week the US Supreme Court ruled against the Defense of Marriage Act, ignoring the fundamental good to society of promoting marriages among those able to bear children, namely, marriages between a man and a woman, and the underlying nature of sexuality itself. Most conservatives believe that children come from sex. Conversely, many liberals believe children come from failed contraception. These different opinions account for the liberal-conservative divide on abortion, contraception, and the definition of marriage.

Judie Brown

The Teacher as Living Temple

Douglas P. McManaman
The temple of Christ's body becomes ours through the Eucharist. We become his "father's house", his dwelling place. And that's what we bring into the classroom every day. That's how we evangelize. All we have to do is be that temple, the temple of his body. This is the great dignity that is ours, called by Christ to be teachers of youth. We are given the inconceivably unique and noble privilege of being a living temple for our students. Without the kids knowing it necessarily, they are brought into the vicinity of the new temple precincts - if we have become that temple, that body of Christ, by our devotion, our prayer life, and our frequent reception of the Eucharist.
