When the Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health Organization draft decision by the US Supreme Court to return abortion law to the individual states was outrageously leaked, I wrote about the pro-abortion violence perpetrated on crisis pregnancy centers and the threats against Supreme Court judges.

When You See the Smile of a Baby, You're Seeing the Smile of God

Tearing Us Apart: How Abortion Harms Everything and Solves Nothing
The fall of Roe has proved revelatory on a number of fronts. It has exposed the pathological commitment of many feminists and Democrats to infanticide. It has demonstrated that many of those who thought Donald Trump's boorishness was the moral issue of our generation still cannot acknowledge that he did anything worthy of praise. And, perhaps most surprising, it has revealed how many on both sides of the abortion debate have not thought that deeply about the real issues involved.

Daniel's Story: Why the Battle for Children and Against Radical Gender Ideology is Just Beginning
It sometimes seems like we've reached a turning point in the cultural battle against gender ideology. For example, public opinion is strongly against 'inclusive' policies allowing men to compete in women's sports, which has forced a number of major sports organizations, such as FINA and World Athletics, to reconsider their nonbiological standards. Stories such as one released last week about a male inmate who impregnated two female inmates after being placed in a women's prison further hit the point home: Gender ideology is asinine, and everyone knows it.

War Against Children: 'Children-friendly' Gay Drag Shows - "unbelievable" (Part 11)

A recent scandal hit the news recently highlighting an unbelievable attack on our children by the gay community: "Child-friendly Drag Shows". This article shows two video recordings of scarcely dressed drag queens dancing in front of children and a bright pink neon sign in the background saying "It's Not Going to Lick Itself." Young children can be seen sitting at a bar and handing money to drag queens. Repugnant and Sickening! Why is there no ADULT outcry? The original intention of removing the stigma of homosexuality from the gay community seems to have changed in recent years. It has shifted from acceptance to abolishing the difference between males and females, and between adults and children. Yet, science states definitely (100%) that a man and a woman are biologically different. God created them different for a reason and one cannot become the other. Regardless of what the media says, this is an impossibility. PERIOD. Candice Jackson summaries it well: "'LGBTQ Pride' is a spiritual cult that's anti-reality, anti-civil liberties, targeting children for fantasy-based rites of body sacrifice to liberate 'gender souls' & 'queer' sexualization."

Ethical Perspectives

New! Does Dobbs v. Jackson Threaten The Supreme Court's Legitimacy?

Adam White
The only way that we can really meaningfully grapple with the Supreme Court's legitimacy is to ask: what was it actually built to do? Roe was wrong. It had become the political equivalent of a black hole, totally devoid of substance, but with such immense gravity that it distorts everything around it. Abortion, of course, isn't going away as a political issue. The difference now will be that instead of having debates about Roe, we'll debate about abortion.

New! The Meaning of Medicine
Dr. Kristin Collier's Speech at the University of Michigan Medical School

Kristin Collier
The suffering you'll see as a physician can either harden you and make you into a burned-out machine, or you can allow the vocation to soften you. It can help you cultivate compassion, love, justice, and mercy. Let medicine do the latter of the two for you.

New! Happy Birthday Humanae Vitae!

Steven Mosher
The family was designed by God to reflect the mystery, unity, diversity, and perfection of the Trinity. Those who hate the designer will hate the design - including the design written on their own hearts. The reluctance of many religious leaders to defend the truths contained in HV boggles the mind, given the massive evidence that they are true. In fact, in view of that evidence, we can safely call Pope Paul's encyclical profoundly prophetic.

New! Your Partner Wants You to Abort? You Have Other Options

Shenan J. Boquet
With the reversal of Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood, we have been hearing the phrase "my body, my choice" much more loudly and much more frequently. I agree that a woman should have autonomy over her body. But, you see, when she's pregnant with a baby - no matter which stage that baby is in - it is no longer just her body.

Will the Fog of War Smuggle Same-Sex Marriage into Ukraine?

Mark Regnerus
In light of both Ukraine's cultural stance on LGBTQ issues and the data showing drawbacks of same sex parenting, a presidential fiat legalizing same-sex marriage would be an affront to the nation. Furthermore, any capitalizing on Ukraine's current dependence on the US and EU governments by encouraging its ideological colonization in the utter absence of popular support would be not virtuous but vicious.

We Don't Need Abortion to Save Mom's Life

Shenan J. Boquet
With Roe gone and abortion already illegal, or set to become illegal, in numerous states, you can expect abortion activists and pro-abortion media to go into overdrive spreading propaganda, trying to make the case that abortion is often "necessary" to preserve the life or health of the mother

The Happy Surrogate Families

Jennifer Lahl
In addition to the tragic stories of surrogacy gone wrong, there are families and surrogates with "happy endings." It is important to hear these stories, too, and to respond to the arguments they make in favor of surrogacy.

Health Care Update: Courts and Congress Tackle ObamaCare

Baby Body Parts Traffickers to be Deported to Ecuador

Steven Mosher
The brothers Roberto and William Isaías were arrested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Service on February 13th. The spokesman for ICE, Nestor Yglesias, indicated that the brothers were "illegally present" in the United States. They will be deported to Ecuador, where they are wanted for various crimes. But the Isaias family also has a criminal record in the State of California. They are linked to a scandal of selling human organs and tissues, particularly those of aborted babies, which they trafficked internationally.

Being a Neighbor
15th Sunday in Ordinary Time ( C)

Antonio P. Pueyo
In a busy world, we are intent on doing our tasks, meeting deadlines, and minding our particular businesses. Like the priest and the Levite we have to attend to our "temple duties". Sometimes, we feel that it takes a lot of trouble to stop by and talk, much more, care for a person.

Death And Catholic Church Teaching

John B. Shea
Since 1968, vital organs, necessary for life, have been removed from patients for transplantation. Since then, this has been morally justified by the claim that the donor is "brain dead" or has suffered "cardiac death." Brain death is defined as complete and irreversible loss of all brain function and cardiac death is declared two to five minutes after cessation of the heartbeat.
