The experience of Nikki Cook with St. Joseph’s hospital, after she was found to be pregnant with a Trisomy 18 child, bluntly confirms our concerns over the Catholic hospital’s and diocese’s practice of ‘early induction’ of babies with lethal fetal anomalies.

Prieur told her the Church would support if she chose to do it.
The Australian report illustrates, as we have never seen before, how very far unchecked liberal, dissident clergy will logically go if not appropriately held accountable much sooner by Church authorities. This is total rebellion and looniness.
More on Brain Death from the Rome conference. It is nearly beyond belief that use of the deadly apnea test has not been stopped long ago. The public must know what strange and disturbing things are being done to justify proclamation of “brain death” for the purpose of organ removal.

Our report on the Toronto lecture of Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput is lengthy, but it was difficult to determine what to leave out of the report on his exceptional presentation. Many pro-life leaders have been waiting for years to hear a prominent Catholic bishop speak so boldly and honestly on these issues. A reading of some of the archbishop’s statements might give the impression that he is a gruff, intimidating man. On the contrary, he was found by all to have a most gracious, soft spoken and attractive personality. This is no domineering bishop, but rather one who feels it is his obligation to speak the truth on difficult issues out of love for God and for the good of the people of his nation. This is good news report.
