Before you set out on a mission to change the conversation around porn, it's key you'll be able to answer some of these basic questions.

The Social Contagion of Transgenderism Is Harming the Most Vulnerable Children
This social contagion is spreading among vulnerable children and young adults through social media, and our liberal culture makers are promoting it with cheer and demanding anyone who objects be silenced. This is not compassion, and this will not help children suffering from gender dysphoria. It will only cause them more harm as they age and realize what was done to them, and that society did not protect them from permanently altering their lives for the worse.

Archbishop Cordileone: "The Most Urgent Crisis Today is the Attack on Life in the Womb"
Abortion -- "the attack on life in the womb" - is the most urgent crisis today, said Catholic Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone in an interview last week.

Demographic Winter: Male Fertility Plunges 62% Worldwide And Is Still Accelerating
I have explained the coming demographic winter for the last 15 years, mostly to deaf ears. World leaders continue to push population explosion theories in order to discourage reproduction. Thinking that there are too many people on the earth and that something must be done to curb them is? pure, unadulterated genocidal mentality. ⁃ TN Editor

Millions of lives under threat in Ukraine this winter - WHO
Half of Ukraine's energy infrastructure is either damaged or destroyed, and 10 million are currently without power, said Dr Hans Henri P Kluge, WHO regional director for Europe.

What happens when Jesus is no longer relevant in the Church?
The trajectory of this thought process then begins to seep into our religious education environment where Jesus is taught as a concept which bluntly means Jesus is whatever you want him to be. Now, we begin to develop false allusions to Jesus Christ apart from God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. And, at its worst manifestation, Jesus is not the path to eternal happiness; I am.

Top Catholic Bishop: Keep Fighting Abortion Because "Abortion Destroys Innocent Human Life"
Following the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the chair of the U.S. Catholic bishops' Committee on Pro-Life Activities is encouraging his fellow bishops to practice radical solidarity with pregnant women and the unborn -- and to remember, in the words of St. Teresa of Calcutta, that "we belong to one another."

37 Nations Sign Document Confirming There's No International Right to Abortion
Countries must protect the rights of both women and unborn children--so pledge the 36 government signatories of the Geneva Consensus Declaration, launched in November 2020.

My High School Punished Me for Saying a Male Shouldn't Be Allowed to Watch Me Undress
Shouldn't every girl be taught to speak out to protect herself from situations where she hasn't given consent - and be listened to by those in a position to help? If something feels off, trust your gut? Not at my high school. If you don't comply with the school's preferred gender identity policy, you're the bad guy. For expressing true, commonsense, biological facts - boys and girls are different and must respect each other's bodily privacy - I was punished.

War Against Children: Body Parts - "Worst Nightmare For the Unborn" (Part 5)

Life is Beautiful. Life is precious and sacred. Good people believe in the sanctity of the human person with rights and dignity to be protected and preserved. Yet there are those who disagree. They declare open war against the unborn child, but there is no such thing as a "good" war. In the end, millions of children die and many are left crippled. Why then fight this war in the first place? The reason is that a "War Against the Unborn" is very profitable. Selling/Buying aborted body parts is a billion-dollar (multi-billion?) industry. Scott Carney in his new book, "The Red Market", figures that he is worth about $250,000 if his body was broken down and sold as individual parts on what he called the "red market." The world was even more shocked when it learned that the University of Pittsburgh was harvesting organs of unborn babies "while their hearts were still beating". Continue reading at Fr.

New! Liberal Individualism Is Undermining Itself

Nathanael Blake
By making the false ideal of independence the basis of our political and social order, we end up denigrating actual, dependent human lives. But life begins in dependence and remains inseparable from unchosen obligations. We have responsibilities to others, for which we have not signed a contract.

New! Discovering America

Susan Hanssen
Conservatives must be patriots - it is not possible to be a conservative and say that there is nothing valuable or worth preserving from your own nation's cultural tradition. The desire to fight for the integrity of your own country has got to come from a visceral love for your country or else it will not seem worth any struggle against its corruption.

New! What Happened to "Live and Let Live"?

Hunter Baker
Liberalism cannot survive as a political philosophy capable of fostering human flourishing if it abandons its supposed virtues of protecting freedoms of religion, speech, and commerce. Yet, as we observe the march of the left on human sexuality, we see an incredible Javert-like intensity in hounding those who offend its sensibilities. We've forgotten that liberalism means winning incomplete victories and living with disagreement.

New! Transgender Fiction and the Right-to-Life Issues:
A Study of Recent Transgender Fiction on Abortion and Euthanasia Using Right-to-Life Literary Theory

Jeff J. Koloze
After reviewing some contemporary scholarship which attempts to connect transgenderism and the right-to-life issues, this study applies the five questions of right-to-life literary theory to recent fictional work concerned with transgenderism and abortion and euthanasia.

The Catholic Church Must Be Allowed to Serve the Victims of Gender Ideology

Salvatore Joseph Cordileone
It is precisely to express Christ's love that the Catholic Church has so many caring ministries: for the sick, for women in crisis pregnancies, for migrants, for the poor, and for others on the margins - including transgender-identifying people. Amid the debates over how to best care for those struggling with gender identity, the Department of Health and Human Services proposes so-called "nondiscrimination" rules that would prevent our ministries from helping people.

Belgian twins euthanased because they "had nothing to live for"

Michael Cook
Professor Chris Gastmans, of the Catholic University of Leuven, criticised the deaths as an impoverished response to disability. "Is this the only humane response that we can offer in such situations? I feel uncomfortable here as ethicist. Today it seems that euthanasia is the only right way to end life. And I think that's not a good thing. In a society as wealthy as ours, we must find another, caring way to deal with human frailty."

The tangled knot of the last taboo

Michael Cook
The British press is a fathomless mine of lurid but thought-provoking, strange-but-true explorations of the dark side of the human condition.

An end to the madness?

Denyse O’Leary
Causes of mental illness. The manual attempts to apply science to psychiatry, but it is not clear how well that works. Only three percent of listed disorders have any recognized biological cause.

What lies ahead for marriage in Ireland?

Michael Cook
Ireland has written a social suicide note and we grieve for her. More than half the Irish have voted for homosexual marriage, seduced by celebrities to violate something they once held sacred: the life between mother, father and child. From today, the Irish Constitution assumes a mother does not matter to a baby, and a father is irrelevant to his son. That is madness.

Defund Planned Parenthood to Stop its Far-Reaching Tentacles

Judie Brown
Planned Parenthood has been given billions in tax dollars, yet it lacks accountability for this money. A report from the Government Accountability Office gleaned from Planned Parenthood's Single Audit Act reports show that Planned Parenthood failed to account for $1.3 billion dollars in government funding received between the years 2002-2008.

Church Teachings on Euthanasia

Brian Clowes
Once any human being becomes worthless or expendable, all are reduced from an absolute to a relative value and no two human beings would be of equal worth, thus demolishing the very foundation of moral order….By devaluing life - the life of the unborn, the elderly, the comatose patient, the handicapped - we are, quite literally, digging our own graves.

Unmasking the Dragon

Ron Panzer
How many years we have been hearing that patients have been medically-killed! How many years people refused to hear and listen! How many years so very few believed! How many years people continue to live such self-concerned and shallow lives. I and so many others have done this, and now a price is to be paid.

The way of the cross: none are more blessed

Tom Bartolomeo
Irreconcilable differences - who is to blame? Perhaps we have been involved in such personal differences: husband and wife, father and son, mother and daughter, appellant and complainant, employer and employee.

Older generation likes bad news about the young

Carolyn Moynihan
Results showed that younger people showed no differences in self-esteem based on what they had read. However, the more that older people read negative stories about younger individuals, the higher the older people's levels of self-esteem tended to be.

Fetal Pain, Maternal Suffering or Human Rights?

Judie Brown
The solution is clear. Human rights must be our focus. The right to have one's life protected by law is the most fundamental human right that exists. It starts with recognizing every person from his biological beginning as an equal member of society.
