CASTELGANDOLFO, February 28, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Two hours before the end of Pope Benedict XVI’s pontificate, the live feed from Vatican Radio’s webcam of the piazza shows that the lights are already off in the papal apartments. In the last few years one of the simpler of the pleasures of working in Rome has been to keep an eye on the pope. After an evening out with friends or a long day running about the City you stroll across the piazza heading for the train station, and you pause and look up. Lights in the three windows in the top […]
"The worldwide encroachment of lesbian and homosexual lifestyles against heterosexuality will only be curtailed or derailed by greater emphasis on strong, functional, loving family life," said Bishop Simeon Hall.
It’s no surprise that the documentary “3801 Lancaster” has not received a lot of attention. Actually, to be more painfully accurate, there has been almost a complete media blackout of this investigation of abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s West Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society abortion clinic. We’ve written about the film here and here, but I understand why I don’t have a lot of company. In a mere 21 minutes and 11 seconds, the documentary explains in almost clinical detail the circumstances that will result in Gosnell going on trial next month, charged with eight counts of murder: first degree murder in the cases of […]
Canada’s top court has released an unanimous decision today that critics say has struck a monumental blow against freedom of speech, opinion, and religion across the country in response to a Human Rights complaint regarding distribution of flyers decrying homosexual activity.
Last year abortion proponents attempted to make ultrasound legislation radioactive by portraying the method used for early pregnancies, transvaginal ultrasound, as “rape.” “Vaginal probes,” as the other side menacingly tagged them, are “a very invasive procedure,” according to NBC’s David Gregory. Never mind that Planned Parenthood usually requires a mother to get an ultrasound before her abortion – which may be transvaginal, as you can see in PP’s screen shot above. And in a survey of its members in 2003, the National Abortion Federation found 83% always performed vaginal ultrasounds before early abortions. Only 1% never did… And never mind that the abortion itself is much more invasive. If a mother can’t endure a transvaginal ultrasound, […]
There’s a theme that ties together today’s update — God hears your prayer … and He answers. Here’s what I mean…. —————————————————– EUGENE, OREGON —————————————————– “I want to spread some very awesome news!!!” That’s the email I received from Lynda in Eugene – complete with all three exclamation marks. The Bours Health Center – the abortion facility where faithful volunteers have prayed during EIGHT 40 Days for Life campaigns – has shut its doors. Vigil participants watched as signs, drapes and banners came down. Later that day, “we rejoiced, praising the Lord and hugging and high-fiving during our 40 Days […]
Today we publish a summary article and then the more useful full text of an incredible document about the entire homosexual problem in the Catholic Church that has recently exploded into the media. Folks, this is something you MUST read - the full document, that is.
A source associated with the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children told LSN Sunday night that it is widely believed in pro-life circles in Britain that the sudden appearance of 20 year-old allegations against O’Brien is “entirely too convenient”.
If the comfort of homosexual abusers were to be more important than the fate of children and youth, the fate of the entire Church - if that were done deliberately, that would be high treason. The Church would be guilty of betraying the youth.
The AFP has reported that the Belgian legislators are debating extending euthanasia to Children, primarily newborns with disabilities and incompetent people with Alzheimers disease or dementia. The AFP article that is titled: Belgium debates euthanasia for minors stated that: Belgian legislators opened a debate Wednesday on whether to amend a decade-old law on euthanasia to cover minors, being told by experts that it was already taking place in practice without any set guidelines. Currently, the law applies to those over 18 but one expert told the upper house of parliament that it was clear that euthanasia was being carried out on younger […]
The Telegraph reported recently that more gay couples and women over the age of 40 are to be given fertility treatment on the NHS, despite claims that the health service cannot afford it (See BBC report here) According to the Telegraph, under an expansion of NHS-funded fertility treatment, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) will recommend that lesbian couples be offered six cycles of artificial insemination and, if that fails, IVF. There were just over 1,000 cycles of insemination performed for women in same-sex relationships in 2010, resulting in 152 babies. The number of cycles of IVF for this group […]

Foremost Expert on Contraception Says the Pill is Not Working – It’s “Outdated” by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White LONDON, July 4, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Pill is outdated and results in unplanned pregnancies; women should get hormonal implants or intra-uterine devices (IUD) instead, says a leading contraception expert in the US. Women do not take the Pill consistently says Professor James Trussell, and it ends up causing more unplanned pregnancies. But rather than encouraging people not to have promiscuous sex or to use Natural Family Planning, what is really needed is a method of contraception that can be forgotten but […]

The Theology of the Body Debate: The Pivotal Question by LifeSiteNews.com By Christopher West When the public conversation about my work unfolded following my appearance on Nightline last May, I did not think it was wise for me to respond until I had submitted the matter to my local bishops. Now that Cardinal Justin Rigali and Bishop Kevin Rhoades have issued a statement, it seems appropriate for me to offer some reflections as well. First, I want to thank the many men and women – former students, married couples, catechists, theologians, seminarians, priests, deacons, religious, and bishops – who contacted […]
Editorial: Canadian Catholic Priest Politician Condemns LifeSiteNews.com Founders in Parliament by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry Westen OTTAWA , March 4, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Catholic priest Rev. Raymond Gravel, who, prior to the launch of his political career was already infamous for publicly opposing the Vatican on homosexuality and abortion, has recently taken pains to make himself appear pro-life in Parliament. LifeSiteNews.com, however, has several times reported on Gravel’s heretical and anti-life statements, such as his repeated and public denunciation of the Vatican for its position on homosexuality, and his statement on radio in 2004: “I am pro-choice and there is not […]
Vatican Forces Pro-Abortion, Pro-Homosexual “Marriage” Catholic Priest From Canadian Politics by LifeSiteNews.com By Tim Waggoner OTTAWA, September 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Controversial Catholic priest and MP, Raymond Gravel, an adamant supporter of abortion and same-sex “marriage”, has announced that he will be stepping down as Bloc MP of Repentigny in Quebec after being issued an ultimatum by the Vatican. “My bishop received instructions from Rome and in effect I had to choose between the priesthood and my role as an MP.

Broken Family Structure Leads to Educational Difficulties for Children by LifeSiteNews.com By Gudrun Schultz UNITED STATES, January 16, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The U.S Center for Marriage and Family released a study in November 2005 that shows broken family structures consistently lead to education difficulties for children. “When it comes to educational achievement,” the study says, “children living with their own married parents do significantly better than other children.” The report found that children from non-intact families (children living in a situation other than with their own married father and mother) have significantly higher rates of difficulty with all levels of […]

The resignation of Pope Benedict is causing a series of large explosions along the way to the new conclave to replace the burnt-out reformer Pope. Some of us have been desperately waiting for many years for the power and influence of an extremely damaging homosexual mafia within the Catholic clergy to be exposed and dealt with. It appears this might finally be happening in a very dramatic fashion thanks to Benedict in the last few days of his pontificate. Italian media reports on the details of a Benedict-ordered internal investigation on the Vatileaks scandal, if true, are astounding. The reports […]
A Machiavellian, blockbuster story has been published in Italy's La Repubblica, alleging that among the reasons for Pope Benedict’s shocking decision to resign was the existence of an entrenched “gay network” in the Vatican.

Proposals for Pro-Life Donations to Assist the Poor in the Global South by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry WestenIn light of the scandal taking place over Development and Peace, many pro-life Catholics in Canada have been wondering where to make the international aid portion of their Lenten donations.

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 21, 2013, (Acton Institute) – Brittney C. Cooper, Assistant professor of Women’s and Gender studies and Africana Studies at Rutgers University, writes at Ebony Magazine.com that President Obama is being unfair to the black community by pointing out that many of the violence-related pathologies in inner cities are a result of fatherlessness. Cooper objects saying, Instead when the president began by suggesting that we need to “do more to promote marriage and encourage fatherhood,” I started shaking my head. Rather than empathizing with those Black families that have been destroyed by violence, he blamed the prevalence of non-nuclear Black […]
U.S. Constitution Does Not Address Abortion, Suicide Rights, Says Justice Scalia by LifeSiteNews.com By Gudrun Schultz WASHINGTON, D.C., October 23, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Federal Court decisions on controversial issues such as abortion and suicide rights should be left to the legislature, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Saturday, condemning unelected judges for creating new rights not found in the Constitution. “You talk about independence as though it is unquestionably and unqualifiedly a good thing,” Scalia said, speaking on the judiciary at a talk sponsored by the National Italian American Foundation, the Associated Press reported. “It may not be.

She said that all of a sudden, it was dark, but then it became a real darkness, and she started thinking, ‘I’ve got to get out of here…and a light went on in her heart and she came out and she left.

“The directive is clear that there is to be no tolerance for students who become uncomfortable or upset" at having a member of the opposite sex in the classroom, or the restroom, a family advocate told LSN.
Last month, Naomi Chan and June Carbone authors of Blue Families v. Red Families had an article in Slate criticizing pro-lifers for an increase in single-parent families. They argue that the religious culture in many southern and midwestern states has little impact on adult sexual behavior. However, the religious culture does make women less likely to choose abortion when confronted with an unintended pregnancy. This leads to more single-parent families in red states. Unsurprisingly, Cahn and Carbone scold pro-lifers for neither grappling with the issue nor having policies in place to address this. While reading this I was reminded of Matthew 7:3-5. “Why do you see […]
The reaction to the commentary, Benedict’s renunciation and the wolves within the church, was unexpected. Many of the 150 comments are well worth reading and I was able to add more information in response to some of the comments. It should be emphasized that the article was written because of a truly extraordinary action by Pope Benedict that was unprecedented in the entire history of the Roman Catholic Church. Yes, there were a couple of other resignations of popes in the past, but the circumstances were totally different. Never has a pope resigned because he felt too tired and weak to carry […]

GERMANTOWN, MD, February 18, 2013, (JillStanek.com) – One thing to say about late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, he is an entrepreneur. Eight days ago came the tragic news that one of Carhart’s patients had succumbed following a late-term abortion at the Germantown, Maryland, clinic where Carhart operates. On February 7, 29-yr-old Jennifer Morbelli died at a hospital near Carhart’s mill following Carhart’s abortion of her 33-wk-old baby, Madison Leigh.

ROME – Many years ago, I was having a conversation on the phone with a friend who was also an archbishop. We were differing over a political question and the discussion had become somewhat heated. It was rather fun, actually, to know that I could stand toe-to-toe with a high-ranking prelate and not back down. He enjoyed a good fight too, so a splendid time was had by all. After we had wound down, we moved on to other topics and he asked me how things were going. We got onto sports, and I mentioned that I was going to […]

Fort Wayne, Indiana's Journal Gazette has an amazing story about an amazing young man. Nik Hoot is a competitive high school wrestler. But what makes him remarkable isn’t that he has won any medals or top championships, but that he wrestles at all, despite having had parts of both of his legs amputated. But where his story gets really interesting, is where you find out why his legs were amputated: because of a failed abortion attempt. From the story: Nik Hoot was born in Siberia in 1996, and from his first breath it was him against the odds. He was supposed […]
Monday's was an earthquake announcement that had to have greater significance than the Pope merely being tired and worn out. So, really, why did Pope Benedict suddenly announce that he would abdicate the ministry of Successor of St. Peter in only 17 days?
I wrote earlier this week that the Environmental Crimes Unit of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office has opened a criminal investigation against Germantown Reproductive Health Services in the wake of a complaint lodged by Germantown Pregnancy Choicesof it illegally dumping biohazardous and medical waste. Although the complaint was filed in November 2012, it appears obvious the Maryland AG’s February 11 announcement of its criminal investigation came in response to the February 7 death of Jennifer Morbelli, a 29-yr-old patient of GRHS’s sole late-term abortionist, LeRoy Carhart. There were other documents retrieved by pro-lifers from Carhart’s trash aside from those of which I posted photos. Also collected between August 2011 and May […]

The documentary explains that many forms of birth control pills contain progestins, which thin the endometrium, the walls of the uterus, which in turn causes it to become inhospitable to a conceived ovum.

Women who had one prior induced abortion were 45% more likely to have premature births by 32 weeks, 71% more likely to have premature births by 28 weeks, and 117% more likely to have premature births by 26 weeks.
This Monday, on the Washington Monthly’s political blog, former Democratic Leadership Council policy director Ed Kilgore had a disappointing analysis of theology and the politics of abortion. Kilgore wonders why rank-and-file Evangelical Christians are more likely to be more pro-life than Roman Catholics. Kilgore finds this puzzling, because he argues that Catholic Church has had more consistent teachings against abortion. He argues that many Protestants became pro-life due to what he calls “dubious, non-scholarly arguments advanced by Francis Schaeffer,” and asserts that the alignment of conservative Evangelicals with the Republican party shifted the opinions of many Evangelical Christians in a pro-life direction. Unfortunately, Kilgore […]

Begun in 2005, the Mother Teresa Awards were instituted to “recognize the achievements for those who beautify the world, especially in the fields of religion, social justice and the arts,” according […]
Cardinal Mahony Under Investigation for Clergy Sex Scandal Cover-Up by LifeSiteNews.com By Kathleen Gilbert LOS ANGELES, January 29, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Federal investigators have launched a probe against Cardinal Roger Mahony and other officials of the L.A. Archdiocese to determine whether he was guilty of fraud by covering up clerical sex abuse, according to a Los Angeles Times report yesterday. Unnamed sources told the Times that Cardinal Mahony is under investigation for his role in allowing the continued abuse of children and young men by known sex offenders among the clergy. Specifically, the inquiry is intended to determine whether Mahony […]
Gay-Friendly U.S. Bishops Outed by Homosexual Activist ‘Catholic’ Group by LifeSiteNews.com WASHINGTON, November 11, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Four of the most controversial left-leaning US Catholic Bishops have been praised by a homosexual activist group. Archbishop Harry Flynn (Minneapolis/St Paul, MN), Cardinal Roger Mahony (Los Angeles, CA), Bishop Mathew Clark (Rochester, NY) and Bishop Thomas J. Gumbleton (Detroit) were named in a press release by the Rainbow Sash Movement (RSM). RSM is a group of homosexual activists which stages publicity stunts daring Catholic clergy to deny members communion. RSM members present themselves for communion while wearing a rainbow-colored sash indicating that […]
Notre Dame President: School “Honored” by Obama’s Acceptance to Speak and Receive Honorary Degree by LifeSiteNews.com By Kathleen Gilbert NOTRE DAME, Indiana, March 23, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In an interview with Notre Dame’s “Observer” newspaper, Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins has responded to a deluge of criticism from Catholics and pro-lifers for the school’s commencement invitation to President Barack Obama. Both the White House and the Notre Dame website announced late Friday afternoon that Obama had agreed to offer the commencement address and receive an honorary law degree at the school on May 17. Jenkins said he does not […]
A Canadian Medical Association survey found that 16% of 2125 doctors who completed a survey would be willing to euthanize a patient, if legal, while 44% said that they would refuse requests for euthanasia. 26% of the doctors were unsure how they would respond to requests for euthanasia and 15% of the physicians did not respond. The Ottawa Citizen published an article written by Sharon Kirkey from Postmedia News that was titled: Only 20 per cent doctors would perform euthanasia, if legal, poll of MDs finds. I guess 16% was 4% too low for the Ottawa Citizen and Postmedia News. The […]
I’m on the road again today, after speaking at 40 Days for Life kickoff events in Jacksonville and Pensacola, Florida. The campaign officially starts TOMORROW … and NOW is the time for us all to make a decision. 40 Days for Life is merely an invitation. This campaign cannot happen without a response from people like you; and that leaves just one question: What will God do over these next 40 days in your community … and will you be part of it? It is our hope that you will join hundreds of thousands of others who have taken this […]
The government is now defending its grant to a Christian organization working to improve water access in Uganda after a media report called for its defunding because of its Christian beliefs on sexuality.
President Barack Obama has released a statement on the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and, as usual, it's all about himself. In three spartan sentences, he manages to use the word “I” four times. The use of the first-person singular is Obama's own Holy Tradition, a hallmark of both his rhetoric and his governing style. His administration is a Magisterium of one. Nonetheless, one line is particularly galling: “Michelle and I warmly remember our meeting with the Holy Father in 2009, and I have appreciated our work together over these last four years.” That mutual work has consisted of: Stripping […]
On Thursday, Will Saletan had an interesting article in Slate, in which he wonders why pro-lifers are able to exert some influence over abortion policy when, according to Saletan, most Americans favor keeping abortion legal. He suggests that this is the case because there is often an intensity gap between “pro-life” and “pro-choice” voters, with the former being smaller in number but more enthusiastic and serious about the issue. According to Saletan, however, all is not lost for supporters of legal abortion. When abortion becomes a more salient issue — that is to say, when a relatively higher percentage of people consider […]
Read backstory, “BREAKING: Carhart’s victims identified.” Over 250 people gathered at Germantown Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic in Germantown, Maryland, this morning to demand justice for the death of 29-year-old Jennifer McKenna Morbelli (pictured right), who perished at the hand of late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart on February 7, along with her 33-week-old preborn baby, Madison Leigh. As protesters gathered outside, Carhart carried on with his abortion business as usual inside. ABC News and the Washington Post were among news outlets that attended the press conference/prayer vigil. Representative from several organizations spoke, including Father Frank Pavone (pictured below) of Priests for Life, Rev. Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition, Day Gardner of the National Black Pro-Life Union, Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America, Mallory […]
Canada's Conservative government has halted payments to a Christian group working to improve access to clean water in Uganda after a media report targeted the group's commitment to Christian sexual teaching.
Pope Benedict XVI’s impending resignation, announced this morning, has opened the usual spate of questions prior to a conclave, as well as new ones about the status of a living Pope emeritus. Among some pro-lifers there is lots of buzz about whether the new pontiff will be pro-life, as was John Paul II. It’s an earnest question with beautiful intention, but it misses an essential truth about Catholic DNA. “Pro-life” is not a plank in a conservative party platform within the Church, as it is in secular politics. There are several encyclicals from several popes spelling out the two-thousand year […]
I blogged last week about a Ms. Magazine article lamenting how difficult it is for “young women of color” to get abortions. The author used the story of her 14-yr-old cousin to demonstrate the trouble an adolescent has getting a clandestine abortion. Never once did Ms. or the author worry about how the girl got pregnant. I used Planned Parenthood’s own statistics to show the younger the pregnant mother, the more likely it is she is a victim of rape or incest. Bottom line: Abortion covers up child rape. I received an amazing email from Anna, who gave me permission to post her story and her name. […]
Last Monday I took part in the BBC Panorama programme ‘The Great Abortion Divide’ (watch it on I-Player). It was presented by Victoria Derbyshire (pictured) and produced by Elizabeth Byrne. Although extremely controversial it has had very little coverage in the media with only the BBC, Guardian and Times (£) so far reporting on it. The programme was billed as follows: ‘Abortion is more controversial than ever, with pro-life activists challenging pregnant women as they try to enter clinics. Doctors in most of the UK are signing off terminations on questionable mental health grounds, while in Northern Ireland women and doctors risk life in prison over abortion. So is […]
UK Govt’ to Impose “Hate Registers” for British Children who Make Gay Comments by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White LONDON, March 5, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Britain’s “surveillance culture” is about to take a step forward with the introduction of “hate registers” for children who use anti-homosexual epithets in and out of school. Late last year, Schools minister Vernon Coaker said that as of September 2010 all schools will be legally required to report all “hate incidents” no matter how small, and keep records on offending children. Serious cases were to be reported to local councils. At the time, the homosexualist group […]
“They have secret files (here in Canada) as they do down there (in the U.S.) of guys that had abused kids that they hadn’t reported. There were investigations into the abuse of boys, which never really produced anything in Canada.” – Brian Rushfeldt, president, Canada Family Action. IRVING, TX, February 8, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – David Watkins, a former Boy Scout leader, has been charged with sodomizing a boy under 13 years of age in his troop. The news broke on the same week as the Boys Scouts of America’s (BSA) decision on whether or not to continue their long-standing ban […]
Renewed Allegations of Forced Abortion in Church of Scientology by LifeSiteNews.com June 15, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Church of Scientology, well known as the practiced religion of celebrities like Tom Cruise and John Travolta, is facing renewed allegations that the organization has psychologically coerced members into having abortions. “They put you in this position where you’re weighing the lives of all these people you’re supposed to be saving against this one little tiny speck of nuisance that’s growing inside of you,” one former member told the St. Petersburg Times. “And [they] make it seem so unimportant. So when you try […]
“By embracing this full vision of equality, we can realize the best nature of who we are and what we stand for at OLLU,” said Leda Barnett, assistant professor of political science.Gay Activists Celebrate Nondiscrimination Policy at Our Lady of the Lake University.
“We honor and celebrate the Maraachlis, a very humble and private family who bravely defended the life of their son at his weakest hour,” said Bobby Schindler, Executive Director of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network
I’ve mentioned before that it is helpful to conduct recognizance on the other side’s social networks. You can learn interesting information. Last Tuesday morning Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas posted this notice on its Facebook page: Texan pro-lifer Andy Moore spotted the notice and immediately began contacting friends. A coalition quickly formed, including (among others) Bryan Kemper, Students for Life of America, and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. When 3p came, pro-lifers were ready, totally overwhelming a Twitter conversation Planned Parenthood had intended to pressure the State of Texas into reinstating funding to one about Planned Parenthood itself. Afterward Bryan reported: The hash tag was the number #1 trending topic on […]
Last month, something remarkable happened. The New York Times published a pro-life op-ed by Chuck Donovan, my colleague at the Charlotte Lozier Institute. Its subject was a new study he co-authored with Nora Sullivan about federal and state reporting laws on abortion. The study analyzed abortion-reporting data for all 50 states. Not surprisingly, it found considerable variance in how states report abortion data. Some provide data online, others offer data only upon request, and a few do not report any data at all. The level of detail also varies considerably. Many, but not all states, provide aggregate data on the age of the woman, the gestational […]
You and me are the new generation taking up the battle-cry for life. We are the thousands-upon-thousands who are attending March for Life rallies across the continent, being a voice for those who have no voice. It is our generation that will see an end to abortion because our passion for life and truth is an unquenchable wildfire. We are young, we are brave, we are unstoppable. But why is it that our views never seem to be reflected in the polls? Why is it that poll after poll comes out indicating that no one really cares about the unborn […]
Click “like” if you are PRO-LIFE! One of the most pro-life TV segments I've seen in a long time recently aired on…no, not Fox…but CNN! You have to watch this. The amount of time that CNN gives to emotionally telling the stories of unborn babies lost before birth, and the number of times that the reporters and pro-life guests refer to the unborn babies as “babies,” is frankly astonishing. And it all culminates in the moment when the CNN anchor bluntly says of one of the unborn babies in question: “How can you not define that as a person?” Give it a […]
Quebec Mandates Relativistic Ethical and Religious Education For All Students in Province by LifeSiteNews.com By John-Henry Westen QUEBEC CITY, October 4, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – As of the beginning of the 2008 school year, all students in the province of Quebec whether in public school, private school or even homeschooled will be mandated to take a program on “Ethics and Religious Culture” which runs from grade one till the end of high school. The program is completely relativistic and includes positive presentation of homosexual families and requires children to question their own religious upbringing. Several parent groups have joined forces to […]
Montreal: One of the World’s Capitals in Pornography Production by LifeSiteNews.com By Jenna Murphy MONTREAL, August 25, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Not only does Quebec have Canada’s lowest birth and highest abortion rates, but it is also considered to be one of the global pornography industry’s largest hubs, after Amsterdam and Los Angeles, according to the Canadian Press (CP). Last week the CP reported in a lengthy piece that Montreal, named Canada’s ‘femme fatale’ city for its moral laxity, is the online pornography capital of Canada, at least in terms of production. Michael Plant, a Quebec City-based “adult entertainment” entrepreneur told […]
Sex could not have been more disconnected from the concept of creating life. The message I’d heard loud and clear was that the purpose of sex was for pleasure and bonding, that its potential for creating life was purely tangential, almost to the point of being forgotten about altogether. This mindset laid the foundation of my views on abortion. Because I saw sex as being closed to the possibility to life by default, I thought of pregnancies that weren’t planned as akin to being struck by lightning while walking down the street: Something totally unpredictable, undeserved, that happened to people […]
Yesterday, Avik Roy responded to the critiques made by myself and Ashley McGuire about his essay about the future of pro-life politics in America. While responding to me, Roy asks how a no-exceptions, pro-life presidential candidate would respond to a hypothetical NARAL television commercial. This ad would feature a rape victim tearfully lamenting how this pro-life presidential candidate would prevent her from either obtaining a morning-after pill or terminating the pregnancy. The best response is, of course, to show compassion for rape victims — agree that rape is a horrible act of violence against an innocent, vulnerable, weaker person. Then make the […]
A pro-abortion doctor is insisting there are strict protocols in place to avoid the awkward problem of having “to deal with a live, aborted infant.” In a letter printed in Tuesday’s National Post, Dr. Christiane Dauphinais seems to be trying to quell public concern after the mainstream media reported on StatsCan data suggesting hundreds of babies were left to die after being born alive following failed abortions between 2000 and 2009. But something tells me this isn’t going to help her cause. The doctor writes: “When performing an abortion on a woman who is 21 weeks pregnant or more, in […]
I have previously pointed out in this space that G.K. Chesterton prophetically defended marriage and the family as the foundational institution of our society against all the present attacks and degradations of it. I am now going to point it out again. With last year’s loss in Minnesota on a constitutional amendment defending marriage, and the hundreds of thousands supporting traditional marriage in France today, the importance of this topic is something that we cannot possibly emphasize too much. And when we have at our disposal Chesterton’s incisive articulation of the truth, we should pick up this sword and swing […]
Last week in Parliament I attended a meeting where four leading figures engaged in a lively debate on therapy for those with unwanted feelings of same-sex attraction. The debate focussed on the legitimacy of, and freedom to offer, ‘change therapy’ (more accurately SOCEs – sexual orientation change efforts), which is aimed at altering the strength and direction of sexual feelings. Dr Michael Davidson of CORE Issues (who is about to undergo a disciplinary procedure for using it) and Canadian psychiatrist Dr Joseph Berger (who uses it regularly) were supporting change therapy. Psychiatrist Professor Michael King (who is its most vehement […]
Great news: Two bottom-feeding abortionists in Michigan have retired. Both Alberto Hodari (top photo) and Enrique Gerbi (bottom photo) allowed their medical and pharmacy licenses to expire as of January 31, 2013 (Hodari here and here [plus pharmacy at four other locations]; Gerbi here and here). Pro-life activist Lynn Mills first got wind of Hodari’s retirement in December when a receptionist at one of his five Michigan locations let the news slip. Since then Lynn has been watching for his license to lapse, during which time she noticed Gerbi’s was also expiring. Gerbi was a circuit riding abortionist for Hodari, among others. At his high point Hodari owned 14 Michigan abortion clinics in 1988. Abortionist Jacob Kalo has […]
Friend and fellow pro-life activist Andrea Mrozek known for her blog Pro-Woman Pro-Life has just been named Executive Director of Focus on the Family Canada’s Institute of Marriage and Family Canada. Andrea’s hard work at IMFC helped make the organization what it is today. Her research into marriage and family matters would have benefitted Canada had her suggestions been employed. Andrea is well spoken and unafraid to tackle hard issues. Congrats Andrea!
HEROIC ABORTION SURVIVOR DIES AT AGE 5 by LifeSiteNews.com WICHITA, Oct 5 (LSN) – “She was the closest thing to a saint I will ever know,” said Marykay Brown the adopted mother of Sarah Brown a five-year-old abortion survivor who died last week. The child struggled for life from her birth which was miraculous since she survived an attempted late-term abortion. When the abortionist attempted to inject the child’s heart with an agent that would kill her, Sarah moved in her mother’s womb and the injection went into the side of her head instead. She was adopted a day later […]
Obama Calls Ad by Abortion Survivor a “Despicable Lie” by LifeSiteNews.com Commentary by Deal W. Hudson, of InsideCatholic.com WASHINGTON, September 25, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Gianna Jessen survived a saline abortion 31 years ago. “I didn’t have any burns anywhere on my body—it was amazing.” The saline, however, did leave Jessen with a mild case of cerebral palsy, a slight limp, and a life-long commitment to oppose abortion. Jessen is featured in a television ad presently running in Ohio and New Mexico, criticizing Barack Obama’s four votes against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA). I asked her why she teamed […]
NOTE: This article is one of a series on the “top ten” accomplishments of the pro-life movement over the past 40 years since unborn children were stripped of their legal right to life by the 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court rulings. One day in May last year, two young women met on the sidewalk outside an abortion clinic. One of the women, Shevelle, was sixteen weeks pregnant—already showing. She was there for an abortion. The other woman, Carol, was serving her first day as a pro-life sidewalk counselor. She was there to talk Shevelle out of getting that abortion. But she couldn’t, […]
It’s clear by now Planned Parenthood didn’t consult its friends before announcing plans to drop the term “pro-choice” from its lexicon. Seems like a huge deal to me, particularly since Planned Parenthood offered no replacement. Planned Parenthood doesn’t make marketing missteps, but I think it just did. Certainly Planned Parenthood must have alienated groups like NARAL Pro-Choice America, Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, Feminists for Choice, Catholics for Choice, Rock for Choice, Medical Students for Choice, Republicans for Choice, Center for Choice, 4000 Years for Choice, Clinicians for Choice, Voice of Choice, Choice USA, yadda yadda. It took a week for NARAL to gather […]
Did Feminism Benefit Men more than Women? Prominent US Feminist Asks by LifeSiteNews.com By Hilary White October 29, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In an Op Ed in the New York Times, leading US feminist Maureen Dowd has expressed her surprise that recent research continues to find that women, who may have been economically “emancipated” by the feminist revolution, are more unhappy now, forty years later, than men. Calling it a “paradox” that women may have thrown off the aprons, Dowd wrote, “But the more women have achieved, the more they seem aggrieved. Did the feminist revolution end up benefiting men more […]
Archbishop Jose Gomez publicly censured Cardinal Mahony who retired after 25 years of being Cardinal Archbishop of the city in 2011. Catholic author and journalist Philip Lawler stated "it’s awfully healthy" that "one bishop made a public fraternal correction on another, which has not happened before".
It was cold and then it got colder and then snowy as the march progressed, but spirits were warm. The LifeSiteNews team in Washington did a fabulous job as you can see from the list of 17 original reports listed here written by team members who were right there at many of the events. It was a grand experience. See video.
February 1, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) — Pro-life media reported in the fall on shocking data from StatsCan suggesting 491 babies had died after they were born alive following failed abortions between 2000 and 2009. After three months of silence from Canada’s major media outlets, the story exploded into the mainstream on Thursday after three MPs called for an RCMP investigation into possible homicides. And, of course, along with the greater attention comes greater scrutiny. Since LifeSiteNews.com first reported the StatsCan data in November some have suggested these 491 deaths include stillbirths, because the medical code indicating their cause of death (P96.4) […]
February 1, 2013, (Campaign Life Coalition) – If I wanted to pay to be lied to, I’d get an abortion, not watch an “award-winning newscast” to “set the facts straight”. Yesterday, the state-broadcaster, otherwise known as the CBC, made John Wilkes Booth look like an amateur by assassinating the truth in their false reporting on one of the most disgusting stories to face Canada since the Pickton trials. In October 2012, blogger Patricia Maloney uncovered the horrifying fact that recent Statistics Canada reports show that from 2000- 2009, 491 children were born alive after botched abortions and left to die, resulting in numerous homicides under the […]
Harper's latest revelation of his attitude towards the heinous crime of homicide of infants is similar to that of Barack Obama, a not so "nice" person who four times voted against legislation to protect children born alive after failed abortions.
WASHINGTON, D.C., February 1, 2013, (FRC.org) – Earlier this week, I wrote about a recent FRC event discussing China’s forced population control policies. This weekend, CBS’s news program, “Sunday Morning” carried a feature on the world-famous Chinese dissident and artist Ai WeiWei. The story focused on an exhibit, running until February 24, at the Smithsonian Institution’s Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. In October 2012, the British magazine, the New Statesman, published an edition edited by Ai WeiWei containing numerous interviews. The Mandarin edition is available in PDF here. This edition contains an interview of the blind anti-one-child policy activist, Chen Guangcheng, by Ai WeiWei. An English translation of the Ai […]
