'Rather, it is the fact that the [government] is telling women how many children they can have and then enforcing that limit through forced abortion, forced sterilization and infanticide – or extortionate fines.'
We usually think of our mission of changing hearts and minds in a relatively parochial sense—reaching the people we encounter in person, or even in a radio or news interview. But sometimes our reach goes way beyond our expectations.

All across the nation Planned Parenthood and its cohorts are networking with state education departments and others who are in a position to foist its repugnant, abusive sex education on children, deceiving and sidestepping parents.
Immigration can certainly be part of the solution to Europe’s low birth rates, but it cannot be all of the solution. Because the simple fact is, if Europeans do not start having children, they will commit demographic suicide. It is just a matter of time.

With $14 billion available for 'population assistance' each year through governments, UN agencies and rich philanthropists — coercive family planning programs in the developing world will happen, and are already happening.
Rorate Caeli, the prominent Catholic blog, this morning reports on important news from Rome via France. L’Homme Nouveau, a French Catholic magazine, reports that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF, known colloquially as “The Holy Office”), has given an official reply (responsum) which confirms that Holy Communion may not be given to Catholics who live in a civil marriage with a new partner after being divorced from their sacramentally-married spouse. Below (courtesy of Rorate Caeli) is an English translation of the text of the question (dubium) put to the Holy Office and the Holy Office’s responsum: [Responsum] To the Question of a French […]

Love is stronger than pain and loss, and, if we try, we can help each other through the very worst of times. One day, please God, all parents who have loved and lost will meet their children again, and they will be truly comforted.
Roe v. Wade perverted the rich legacy of civil rights by taking the 14th Amendment, landmark legislation that finally ascribed humanity to people of my color, and abused it to strip away the humanity from another group of human beings—the unborn.
Venturing forth into the margins, my leaders? You have not placed one toe outside of the plush rugs of your comfort. Do so, I beg you! Come and see all those whom the Lonely Revolution has hurt. Leave your parlors and come to the sheepfold!
Robin Teresa Beck, 59, lived through 12 lesbian relationships over the course of 35 years before her dramatic conversion to the Catholic faith and healing from homosexuality, just five years ago. She shares her story with LifeSiteNews. LSN: You went from one lesbian relationship to another — 12 in total — always hoping that the woman you were with would be the last one. At one point in one of your last relationships you felt that everything in your life would be fine if only you could figure out how to create a “healthy gay relationship.” One thing you saw […]
Judges who have ruled against state measures limiting marriage to a man and a woman have acted recklessly, as Judge Sutton’s powerful opinion demonstrates, imperiling both the rule of law and the institution of marriage.
