What Does the Bible Say about Abortion?

The statement that abortion is not explicitly mentioned in the Bible is technically correct. However, this allegation falls prey to the logical fallacy of assuming that because an act is not mentioned in Scripture, the Bible therefore approves of that act. After all, Scripture does not name other evils specifically, such as carjacking or phone hacking. Does this mean that Christians should not oppose these evil acts either?

Does Abortion Save Lives?

Pro-abortion groups claim that legalized abortion is vital for women's health in the United States since, as they claim, thousands died of illegal abortions every year before the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. Population controllers also allege that hundreds of thousands of women still die all over the world because their nations have pro-life laws. Does abortion really save lives?

Is There Aborted Fetal Tissue in Cosmetics?

From time to time, we hear stories alleging that American abortion mills are selling aborted babies to major cosmetic companies so that they may be "rendered" for their collagen. Collagen is the main protein component of connective tissue.

Visualizing Abortion Statistics: Who's Being Killed and Why?

No battle is richer in imagery than the struggle over abortion. We have seen everything from coat hangers to roses, ultrasound photos of preborn babies, faked photos of women killed by illegal abortions, panel trucks with giant bloody aborted-baby pictures on them, and NARAL's "Silent No More" debacle, where weeping women described in great detail the suffering of their (mostly imaginary) women relatives at the filthy hands of drunk illegal abortionists. The reality is clear, as are the statistics: According to the World Health Organization, "around 73 million induced abortions take place worldwide each year."

Is Being Pro-Life Racist?

While it is true that non-Hispanic Black women have more abortions than any other racial or ethnic group, banning abortion is not racist in itself. In reality, if someone is truly pro-life and values all life from conception until natural death, the idea of a pro-life racist makes no sense. If pro-lifers are racist, why are there missions in Africa to help women in poverty have the means to raise their families?

Does Abortion Really Incur Excommunication?

"Excommunication is a sanction that deprives a Catholic of all participation in the common blessings of the society of the Church.1 It is the most serious penalty the Church can inflict and is used only in the most severe cases. The excommunicated person remains a Catholic because his baptism cannot be nullified, but he is a kind of spiritual exile, removed from the benefits enjoyed by the members of the Church.

Abortifacient Brief: The Intrauterine Device

The intrauterine device (IUD) is a foreign body inserted into the uterus. IUDs are made of a non‑reactive plastic such as polyethylene and may include active chemicals or elements such as progesterone or copper which slowly diffuse into the uterus over a period of several years.

What is the Role of Conscience in Moral Decision-Making?

The Catholic Church teaches that the conscience is a natural facility of our reason that directs us to do good and avoid evil; that makes judgments about the good and evil of particular acts; and that bears witness after the fact to the good or evil that we have done, such as what we call "having a guilty conscience."

In Vitro Fertilization: Unnatural Selection

The child is not an object to which one has a right, nor can he be considered as an object of ownership: rather, a child is a gift, "the supreme gift" and the most gratuitous gift of marriage and is a living testimony of the mutual giving of his parents. For this reason, the child has the right to be the fruit of the specific act of the conjugal love of his parents; and he also has the right to be respected as a person from the moment of his conception.

Isn't Abortion a Legal, Constitutional and Human Right?

Abortion is not a constitutional right according to a direct reading of the text of the Constitution, but it has been justified as a constitutional right under the Fourth Amendment's protection of privacy. In short, the constitutional right to abortion is found not in the Constitution itself, but in a loose reading of it as a "living document," as "progressives" like to call it.

The Miracle of Fetal Development

There are two ways to define the time period that marks various milestones in fetal development: gestational and fertilization age. We should all be familiar with our own prenatal histories, not just because it is so fascinating, but because we might save an unborn child ourselves one day with this timeline of fetal development.

Does Abortion Reduce Crime?

Research has shown that abortion and crime rate are related. One study claimed that legalizing abortion increased murder rates by up to 7%. This is because legalizing abortion is a contributing factor to the great increase in out-of-wedlock births and single parent families, which in turn contribute to increased crime rates.

Many people believe that the sordid history of Nazi Germany's euthanasia program is irrelevant to the current situation in the United States. They usually claim that "it could never happen here!" However, a brief review of events in Europe during the first half of the 20th century should give us pause, because it could happen here - and, in fact, it is happening here.

What Does the Catholic Church Teach about Homosexuality?

One point should be made perfectly clear: Despite many assertions to the contrary, the Catholic Church and other Christian denominations do not condemn homosexuals, but rather condemn their unnatural and unhealthy acts, which not only contravene the laws of nature but ignore God's Commandments. Homosexuals have no more cause to complain about Church teachings than do fornicators or adulterers.

Why Euthanasia is Wrong - From a Secular Viewpoint

It is one thing to speak of the sanctity of life and of human life being created in the image and likeness of God - but what does the anti?euthanasia activist say when he is confronted by a pro?euthanasia person who does not believe in God - or who believes in a permissive, feel?good "god" who allows him to do anything he wants?

Why Are Homosexual Activists So Afraid of "Ex-Gays"?

Homophile propagandists jealously protect a very important secret - homosexuals can leave their lifestyle. If it can be proved that homosexuals can "convert" to heterosexuality, then the theory that "gays are born that way" is decisively exposed as junk science. And if the "born that way" allegation is debunked, the homosexuals lose their claim to being a protected minority under civil rights laws.

Is There a Right to a Child?

God bestowed men and women with an innate desire to procreate and to nurture their children. This is one of the most fundamental instincts of all, shared by all of God's creatures. But sometimes God's plan for our lives differs from our own, and couples find that they cannot have their own natural children.

Should the Pro-Life Movement Follow a "No Exceptions" or "Pragmatic" Strategy?

Pro-life groups generally emphasize one of two pro-life strategies: the "pragmatic" and the "no exceptions" approaches. "Pragmatic" pro-lifers work for protective laws while taking into consideration local political conditions. In a liberal state, the best one may be able to manage is to pass a parental notification law, work for stricter state regulation of abortion mills, end public abortion funding, or enact humane fetal disposal laws. This strategy recognizes that all abortions are bad, but it may be possible to save some babies.

Why Do So Many "Pro-Choice" Groups Support Forced Abortion?

As far back as the 1950s, dozens of leading eugenicists publicly recommended forced abortion, sterilization and contraception for non-white and poor populations. As the foundation of the modern "pro-choice" movement was laid in the 1960s, the mortar holding all of its ideas together was the belief that mandatory measures would be required in order to control the childbearing of lesser classes for the good of the human race and for the environment.

The Homosexuals' American Psychological Association Coup

Homosexual activists often mention that the medical profession - specifically psychiatrists and psychologists - believe that homosexuality is a "normal human sexual response." In support of this assertion, they talk about how the American Psychological Association officially removed homosexuality from its list of "mental disorders" in 1973, and that the American Psychiatric Association also classifies homosexuality as normal.

What Does the Bible Say about Homosexuality?

Why Are Late Abortions Performed?

As experts have known for years, unborn children begin to feel pain as early as eight weeks after fertilization, and definitely no later than 14 weeks. Science proves that an unborn child, when being aborted in the second or third trimester, feels hideous pain as he or she is cut apart by the razor-sharp instruments of the abortionist.

The Racism of Eugenics

We have seen that eugenicists in general focus entirely on a person's physical characteristics when gauging their perceived usefulness to society. This purely utilitarian thinking has culminated in the attempted extermination of entire classes of people - the handicapped, the elderly, other ethnicities, and Jews. The only difference between eugenics practice a century ago and in our current day is that now, those who are deemed non-productive or "unwanted" are killed individually instead of en masse - usually by the people who should be protecting and caring for them.

National Security Study Memorandum 200: Blueprint for World Depopulation

Population controllers believe that a high population density leads to poverty.

What is Transgenderism?

Merriam-Webster's describes a "transgendered" person as a person who "identifies with or expresses a gender identity that differs from the one which corresponds to the person's sex at birth." It identifies a "transsexual" person as "a person who tries to look, dress, and act like a member of the opposite sex; especially: someone who medically changes himself or herself into a member of the opposite sex."

Surrogate Motherhood

A surrogate mother is a woman who agrees to carry someone else's baby after becoming pregnant using some form of assisted reproduction, usually in-vitro fertilization (IVF) or artificial insemination. The surrogate's baby usually undergoes prenatal genetic diagnoses (PGDs) early in the pregnancy. If the baby is found to be healthy, she carries it to term, delivers in a hospital, and turns the baby over to the adoptive parents.

One of the most persuasive arguments that homosexual activists use to support their agenda is the assertion that 10% of all people are "gay."

Shouldn't We Permit Abortion Only to Save the Life of the Mother?

Due to the principle of the "double effect," surgical procedures that save the mother's life while causing the undesired and unintended death of the preborn child are permissible, so an abortion exception to save the life of the mother is actually unnecessary. Pro-lifers must vigorously oppose the "mother's life" abortion exception because of the inherent dishonesty of abortionists who expand it to mean abortion on demand. Additionally, if surgical procedures intended to save the life of the mother are labeled "abortions" in those many countries that still have pro-life laws, people will get used to the idea of killing preborn children much more easily, paving the way for a rapid expansion of exceptions and eventual abortion on demand.

Should Catholic Hospitals Use the Morning-After Pill for Rape Victims?

Even with all of the different contraceptives and abortifacients on the market today, women forget to use their birth control, think their birth control method might have failed, or were coerced into sex. Many of these women resort to "emergency contraception," a term that covers several drugs or devices that are used after intercourse (instead of before) to avoid pregnancy. EC can take several forms. The most common are the morning-after pill (MAP); doubling up on birth control pills; and insertion of the Copper-T, or ParaGard intrauterine device. The abortion drug mifepristone (RU-486) can also be used as emergency contraception.

When pro-family people claim that homophile groups are pushing a "special rights" agenda, they are roundly condemned and ridiculed by homosexual leaders, the media, and the glitterati. "Gay rights" organizations assert that they are not asking for special rights, but only for the same rights that everyone else enjoys. This language is carefully designed to be soothing and nonthreatening, distracting attention from the real special rights agenda as it rolls ahead almost unimpeded. Homosexuals frequently employ these tools, endlessly ridiculing the idea that there is a "gay agenda" at all. This, of course, allows those who are pushing the agenda to avoid discussion and simply mock those who allege its existence.

Opening the Gates wide to population control abuse

In July 1912, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, Marie Stopes and other leaders in the early race-cleansing eugenics movement held their first international conference in London. Among the leading topics of discussion were how to stop poor and "unfit" African women from breeding. Exactly 100 years later, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the British Government sponsored the Summit on Family Planning in the same city. This is most likely a coincidence, but the irony is stunning. The objective of the Summit on Family Planning was to raise enough money to "provide 120 million women in the world's poorest countries with access to contraceptives by 2020," with a heavy emphasis on Africa. Atop the list of the Gates Foundation's partners were - you guessed it - International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and Marie Stopes International, the two largest abortion providers in the world, back to finish the work their founders had started a century before.

Singapore Sling: How slowing population growth may hurt one of the world's great cities

The real problem is immediately evident to any child-oriented person who visits Singapore: There are very few children visible anywhere, even on the weekends.

They have only 1.1 children on the average, making theirs the third-lowest TFR in the world. If this trend continues, the TFR will be a disastrously low 0.70 within a couple of decades.

Sexual sterilization is sometimes referred to as "Catholic birth control" or "permanent contraception." These terms, and the misguided assertions of a number of well-known dissenters, have led to confusion regarding the Catholic Church's teaching on sterilization. For the simple reason that it closes off the marital act to the transmission of human life, sterilization is condemned on the same grounds as other methods of contraception.

Exposing the Global Population Control Agenda

Although the United States government has issued hundreds of policy papers dealing with various aspects of American national security since 1974, NSSM-200 continues to be the foundational document on population control issued by the United States government. It therefore continues to represent official United States policy on population control. The primary purpose of U.S.-funded population control efforts is to maintain access to the mineral resources of less-developed countries.

Ugandan Model Shows Contraceptives Not the Answer to HIV/AIDS Epidemic

The fatal danger of relentlessly pushing contraceptives on Uganda and other African countries was laid bare recently in an alarming new report showing that the most popular contraceptive in Eastern and Southern Africa may actually double the risk of contracting HIV. After experiencing success in combating HIV/AIDS in Uganda through an anti-contraception initiative, it's not surprising to hear that contraceptives are part of, and not a solution to, the problem.

The "Contraceptive Mentality" and Its Consequences

A mentality or mindset is a set of beliefs and assumptions which directs and informs the moral aspects of a person's life. Especially in our age of mass communications, mentalities of entire populations can be manufactured, propagandized and then lived out by large numbers of people - even without their being aware of it.

Homosexuality and the Church Crisis

This paper demonstrates that there is indeed a very strong link between male homosexuality and child sexual abuse. It also shows that there is a similar rate of child sexual abuse among other very large groups of adult males (e.g., Protestant clergy, who are usually married), thus proving that celibacy is not the root of the problem - homosexuality is. ... There are many attacking on the Pope specifically and the Roman Catholic Church generally because of the sex abuse crisis. However, these individuals and organizations are not motivated by a desire to enlighten mankind or protect the innocent, since the crisis has already largely subsided, and stringent means have been enacted to prevent the abuse from reoccurring. Rather, the motivation appears to be more one of bigotry and a desire to muzzle and sideline the Church's moral opposition to the "gay rights" movement.

Commentary: Let's Get our Facts Straight about Tiller and Anti-Abortion Violence

Pro-lifers should indeed condemn the murder of George Tiller. But we should not play permanent defense as the nonsense snowballs and the unfair attacks against the pro-life movement multiply. Here are some facts that should be taken into consideration by all people of good will, especially those whose responsibility it is to report on this story.

The Abortion Lobby's Deep Pockets

The author of this article downloaded and examined 15,524 IRS Forms 990 in order to determine just how much income is generated annually by nonprofit groups that support the Culture of Life and the Culture of Death. The last year that these Forms 990 are generally available for this kind of research was 2006, so that is the base year we will use in this analysis. The most logical way to examine this question is to look at three different matchups: first, single-issue pro-life vs. single-issue pro-abortion and "family planning" groups; second, pro-family vs. anti-family groups; third and finally, the international population-control movement vs. those opposing it.

Japan in the Death Spiral

For years, Catholic pro-lifers have been warning that abortion, sterilization and contraception cause the collapse of an individual's morality and the destruction of families. Now, demographers are indirectly telling us that these evils are destroying entire nations and continents. Unfortunately, governments do not even acknowledge the root cause of the problem of the "demographic death spiral." An impending white paper by the Japanese government tells us that the "foundations of communities" - police, fire and other basic services - will be threatened by the country's declining birthrate and aging population.

Eastern Europe's Biological Chamber of Horrors

For decades, pro-life philosophers have been warning the world about the so-called moral "slippery slope." The concept is simple and has been proven countless times by history and human nature: Once you have accepted a little bit of a particular evil, it is impossible to resist condoning more and more of it. The first step is always the hardest, but once you have taken that first step, once you have become comfortable with a small dose of evil, once you have cracked that fatal door open just a tiny little bit, the question inevitably arises: "Why not just take one more step?"

Who's Violent?

Many Americans believe that the average "reproductive care center" is under constant siege by "anti-abortion fanatics" who might pull the trigger at any moment. This is an utterly false impression, and it has drastic real world consequences for the future of unborn human life. The abortion struggle in the United States has already lasted more than three decades, and one of the greatest obstacles pro-lifers still face is that public perception of the issue has been, in large measure, shaped by such distortions.

The Bitter Fruits of Abortion

Back in the late 1960s in the United States, pro-abortion groups promised us that the rewards would be great if we legalized abortion. A group called NARAL promised us that "Legal abortion will decrease the number of unwanted children, child abuse cases, and possibly subsequent delinquency, drug addiction, and a host of social ills believed to be associated with neglectful parenthood." This is how the Devil works: He promises us everything, then betrays us. No wonder he is called "liar and the father of lies."

The Kissinger Report 2004

The citizens of the developed nations of the West treasure their right to privacy. It is hypocritical for these countries to routinely violate the right to privacy of the citizens of LDCs by telling families how many children they should or should not have. No nation has the right to invade the bedrooms of the citizens of another nation. NSSM-200 represents the epitome of interference in a family's most intimate decisions.
