Several media outlets endorsed the movement, including CNBC, the Today Show, E!, HGTV, Philadelphia Magazine, Ms. Magazine, The View, and […]

Condom Ads Pushing Young People into “Risk-Taking” Sexual Activity: SPUC

By Hilary White LONDON, October 22, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Condom use and their promotion in TV ads only helps to promote risk-taking behavior in young people, behavior that contributes to the spread of sexually transmitted disease and teenage pregnancies, the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) has said in a new campaign. The condom ads on UK television, which were approved by the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) in March this year to be shown during children’s peak viewing hours, are “priming” children to have sex in their teens, SPUC says. Increased condom use has resulted in “shamefully high […]

Heavyweight Philosophers Clash at Abortion Conference

By Terrence McKeegan, J.D. PRINCETON, October 22, 2010 (C-FAM) – A baby's cry, piercing the air from the back of an Ivy League academic hall, offered a disquieting counterpoint to a startling argument for abortion rights. “An infant has no moral status because he is not self-aware,” said Peter Singer, a professor of bioethics.  Singer argued this point at an historic conference he co-organized at Princeton University last weekend, seeking new dialogue on the heated issue of abortion. Remarkably, for a conference examining abortion, there was virtually no discussion about the act of abortion itself.   “We have to get rid […]
