WASHINGTON, October 13, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Catholic University of America Tuesday reversed its decision made earlier this year, to prohibit a NAACP chapter on campus.

The university also said that NAACP advocating for abortion rights was contrary to Catholic teaching, which factored into the refusal.  National Association for the Advancement of Colored […]

BRUSSELS, October 13, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A European Union panel has refused to endorse the nomination of Italian Rocco Buttiglione as commissioner for Justice, Freedom and Security, because of his conservative values.

Kerry and Bush Debate Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Abortion

ST. LOUIS, October 12, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Friday’s U.S. presidential election debate between Democratic nominee John Kerry and President George W. Bush highlighted the deep divide between the two camps on two major life issues—abortion and embryonic stem cell research.

However, no one has been cured by using embryonic stem cells. Wouldn’t it […]

An investigation by the Telegraph newspaper found the organization is referring women to a late term abortion facility in Spain where abortion is also illegal after 22 weeks. When the […]
