Fear of Having Children Based in “Lack of Hope”: Cardinal Pell by LifeSiteNews.com By Kathleen Gilbert SYDNEY, Australia, August 3, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The dwindling number of young adults willing to welcome children into the world can be traced to a “lack of confidence in the goodness of life,” said Cardinal George Pell of the Archdiocese of Sydney this weekend. “Some young adults today are afraid of having children, uncertain of the benefits or uncertain of their capacity to cope as parents,” wrote Cardinal Pell in a column for Sunday’s edition of the Telegraph. “Many reasons are proposed for this, […]
Canadians Worry about Vulnerable People if Euthanasia is Legalized: Poll by LifeSiteNews.com November 4, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A year of public debate about legal euthanasia has left Canadians with concerns about how vulnerable people – those who are elderly, depressed, disabled or chronically ill – will fare if the law changes. A new poll by Environics Research of 2,025 Canadians has found that although 59% said they support legal euthanasia, the number who “strongly support” it has declined by 3 points since last year. Support is highest in Quebec at 69%, down from 75% a year ago, and lowest in […]
Pope Benedict, recently had a rare televised interview, where he commented on the difficult case of a man in PVS since April 2009. He reportedly told the mother of an Italian man who has been in PVS since Easter Sunday 2009 that her son’s soul was still in his body and that he could feel the presence of love. “The situation, perhaps, is like that of a guitar whose strings have been broken and therefore can no longer play,” the pope told Maria Teresa. Benedict, who frequently reminds the faithful that according to Catholic teachings euthanasia is wrong, then told […]

KINSEY: CRIME OF THE CENTURY by LifeSiteNews.com Internet Resource World Wide Web, Jan 28 (LSN) The New American magazine has published a compelling review of Dr. Judith Reisman’s “Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences.” Learn how Kinsey’s “research” gave rise to the sexual revolution and legitimized divorce, homosexuality, sex-education, adultery, and promiscuity. Kinsey based his “findings” on biased samples (imprisoned sexual deviants and serial pedophiles), and fraud—”almost all AIDS and sex education in elementary, secondary, college, graduate and post-graduate schools base their sex education curricula on the Kinseyan ‘variant’ sex model.” Nevertheless, his findings were welcomed enthusiastically by his generation, which wasn’t […]
Every once in a while those anonymous emails we receive is worthy of republishing… As I grew up, I never questioned his place in my family. In my young mind, he had a special niche. My parents were complementary instructors: Mum taught me good from evil, and Dad taught me to obey. But the stranger.. he was our storyteller. He would keep us spellbound for hours on end with adventures, mysteries and comedies. Sometimes, Mum would get up quietly while the rest of us were shushing each other to listen to what he had to say, and she would go to […]

Q: Before we begin, can you tell me just a little bit about your background, where you live, your history with your wife, how your relationship got going, etc.? A: Well, we live in Traveler’s Rest, South Carolina – beautiful place. My wife absolutely loved it. We met in school, at Greenville college school to be exact. She was eating by herself at the dining hall at the university, and I saw her and asked her if I could join, and she said no. And she turned me down for the next four times I asked her out.

USCCB Officials Urge HHS Not to Require Coverage of Contraception, Sterilization by LifeSiteNews.com WASHINGTON, D.C., September 20, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) should not require coverage of contraception or sterilization in group and individual health plans as part of “preventive” services for women, said representatives of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) this week. The HHS is currently deliberating on a final list of required preventive services under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). “These drugs, devices and procedures prevent not a disease condition, but the healthy condition known as […]
The decision was made by Guatemala's delegate during the negotiations on a new UN resolution on "Fertility, reproductive health and development", terms that are often associated with pro-abortion measures.
Teachers should tell Jim Ryan to take a hike. If thousands refuse to pay, the plan will falter. If, in addition, hundreds get together, get organized, demand an end to this extortion, they might even hire a feisty lawyer and take these miscreants to Court.

Catholics’ Constitutional Rights No Safeguard Under Ontario Equity Strategy: CLC by LifeSiteNews.com By Patrick B. Craine TORONTO, Ontario, September 7, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Assurances that Catholics’ constitutionally-guaranteed denominational rights will be respected under Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty’s equity and inclusive education strategy are a “distraction” and a “clever tactic” to stave off rebuke from Catholic leaders, says Campaign Life Coalition, which is waging a campaign to have the strategy scrapped. (To find out more, click here) “By its very nature, McGuinty’s plan forces Catholic boards to violate Church teaching and accept the homosexual agenda because it forces all school boards […]

If you spot a group of young people this week playing tug of war with an invisible rope, diving into a waist-deep pool of packing peanuts, or wielding a battle axe and a lightsaber at the same time, don't worry - at least, as long as they're wearing pro-life T-shirts.
I wish I could find the exact quote, but on Mike Huckabee’s Fox News show over the weekend Democrat strategist Kirsten Powers used the word “strange” to describe Obama and the Democrats’ willingness to concede billions in budget concessions to Republicans, all just to keep Planned Parenthood funded for the small total (relatively speaking) of $300+ million. Here’s how the New York Times described a key conversation: At one crucial moment in the game of chicken over a looming shutdown of the United States government, President Obama and the House speaker, John Boehner, faced off in the Oval Office. Mr. […]

One week to go! With just 7 days left in the spring campaign, we are now aware of … … 346 babies whose mothers have turned away from abortion – that we know of!

Anglican Acceptance of both Abortion and Sanctity of Life will Allow the Creation of a Gay Church: G by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White LONDON, May 16, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Anglican Church is the perfect vehicle for creating a new “gay” Christianity by virtue of the fact that it is the only church that accepts the logical contradiction of asserting both the sanctity of human life and the existence of a right to abortion. Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson, whose ordination to the episcopate has precipitated the ongoing schism between traditionally Christian Anglicans and its ultra-liberal, secularized branches, is in London […]

Northern Ireland Assemblyman, Dr. Esmond Birnie, a leading opponent of the normalization of pornography in the British Isles, said “I am sure many will be disturbed by reports that the Belfast Hilton is providing its guests with access to hardcore porn films.” A similar situation in Norway prompted unionized […]
As I’ve traveled to 40 Days for Life vigils this spring I’ve seen more and more priests, pastors and clergy than ever before! It is VERY encouraging to see our clergy leading by example — especially when it can be unpopular.

The picture shows Bishop […]

Did you know this?” “Funding for many citizens groups has been cut under the guise of waste, yet we are asked to support the purchase of new fighter jets at a cost of $27 billion,” she added. […]
Let’s get rid of the “need” for abortion. Pro-life advocates have made enormous ground on in the legal battle to restrict and abolish abortion, and those praying on the spiritual front (such as 40 Days for Life, to name just one effort in this prayerful pro-life movement), have helped change hearts and minds by their loving example. But pro-life advocates also need to pay more attention to the problem of “want” that drives this “need” among so many women for abortion. Perhaps the middle of the most serious world recession since the Great Depression is an excellent time for pro-life […]
I often point out that our youth are not simply the “future leaders” of the pro-life movement. They are leaders here and now, in more ways than one. Often I am asked to speak about the role of youth in the pro-life movement, and to encourage parishes and pro-life organizations to focus more on recruiting youth for this cause. In fact, this is not a difficult task. Youth understand the pro-life message better than many adults, and the most common response they give to the question, “Why are you involved in trying to stop abortion?” is “Because it could have […]
It’s Monday! Mondays are the BEST days during the campaign. Monday means that it’s time to report the number of saves. So here’s some good news to start your week!

Caught on Video: How UNICEF, WHO Manipulate Latin American Catholics to Cooperate on Abortion by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White and Steve Jalsevac June 5, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – When is abortion not really “abortion”?

The Feminist Majority Foundation has been strangely quiet this week, as it is usually (and advertised at their Conference as) “Don’t be Fooled by ‘Fake Clinics’” week, leading up to April Fool’s Day. Even though they have been silent, I’d like to post Part II of my undercover blog from the FMF Young Leaders Conference in Washington, DC, on FMF’s workshop entitled: “Exposing Fake Clinics: City by City.” To be honest, most of the workshop was full of propaganda about: – How dangerous Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs) are since they “prey” on young low income women. – How PRCs lie […]
